He got killed at the hands of some robbers and then got reincarnated in a fantasy world as a slime. Before dying, he wished to become a ‘predator‘ in his next life. So he wakes up as a slime monster. With this unique structure, he gets the power to devour anything and copy its appearance and abilities. Then, Satoru changes his name to Rimaru Tempest and befriends a powerful dragon, Veladora. He meets a Chosen One, discovers a forest alliance, and even persuades the resentment of a few Demon Lords.

What to expect from Season 2

Demon Lord Milim might declare war on a nearby kingdom where Rimuru and the Jura Forest Alliance live. Rimuru’s appearance may become slightly older, which usually implies to enormous power upgrade.
