Anime Winter 2021 is a blessing in itself. That’s because quite a lot of interesting anime aired in that season. One of them is Tensei Shitara Slime Datta Ken (That Time I Got Reincarnated As a Slime). After a very good first season, this second season is no less good. What do you think will be interesting in the second season? Follow the discussion here.
After Rimuru founded a new monster nation under his name, he saw the future of The Jura Tempest Federation. He also decided to form alliances with various neighboring countries. On the list were the animal kingdoms, Eurazania led by Demon King Carrion, then the Dwarven Kingdom of Dwargon led by Gazel Dwargo.
They can handle the creation of this alliance early on in the second season. It gives us a lot of pleasure. Plus, it has also become a hallmark since the first season of the Tensei Shitara Slime Datta Ken anime.
This one does make a good impression. Because we can explore various other areas on the world map and also introduce a Demon King who can lead a certain country. We are also introduced to the human kingdom. The holy kingdom of Ruberios believes that monsters are the natural enemies of humans. Moreover, in that area, there is an area called Falmuth and is a trade center for western countries which are threatened by the presence of Tempest.
Rimuru’s leadership also created a prosperous condition within Tempest. In this section, the depiction is already very good. Because the aspect of expanding the area this season is a good step for story development.
In the second season of Tensei Shitara Slime Datta Ken we are introduced to many Demon Lords. We can also see how their capacity as a loyal ruler or even the mastermind of evil. In this second season, we also get to see Rimuru Tempest become the Demon King himself.
This season is also more focused on the effects of Demon King Clayman’s activities. He secretly instigated the people to antagonize Rimuru to the point of bringing misery to The Jura Tempest Federation. Its existence itself is rarely known and is always involved in manipulation and coercion for its ends.
Actually, Tensei Shitara Slime Datta Ken very rarely includes romantic elements. This anime is more about action, a slice of life, to comedy. Even so, we can witness the development of the relationship between Shizu and Rimuru in the first season. Then for this second season, it’s Youm’s turn, a former bandit, to find love in an unexpected place when the spy Clayman Myulan gains her trust.
Their romance seemed doomed from the start. because Youm only wanted to take advantage of Myulan. However, Myulan’s feelings for Youm still lingered. Although Youm’s role is not an important character, his role in the continued prosperity of Tempest should not be ignored. This small piece of the romantic element is enough to provide an interesting development.
This second season of Tensei Shitara Slime Datta Ken is enough to provide strong entertainment as one of the best isekai anime. The world expansion, plot, and also Rimuru’s development as a character this season are also very good. We can’t wait for the next season.
