    Naofumi Iwatani was an assuming teen from Japan when he's transported to a parallel world. He was then subsequently betrayed by his only ally at the time leaving him despised and destitute. The first season has him overcoming these initial obstacles while making new friends and repairing his reputation.

    If you're a fan of isekai anime, then you're most likely familiar with That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime. For those of you who missed the first season though, you're in for a treat. After Satoru Mikami is attacked and dies in Tokyo, he is transported to another world as, you guessed it, a Slime. After aquiring such skills as "Predator," Mikami becomes one of the more powerful beings in an unfamiliar world, but that doesn't mean his journey won't be filled with challenges.
