That Time I got Reincarnated as a Slime: Does this RPG anime offer something new?

Are you frustrated about Sword Art Online III?  Do you love RPG anime but the new ones you’ve watched did not go well with your taste? Then look nowhere else because That Time I got Reincarnated as a Slime is likely to be the perfect match for you.

How can I confidently say such a statement?  I’ve read almost every RPG manga even the least popular ones and watched their respective anime adaptations.  Among all of them, That Time I go Reincarnated as a Slime, stands out as the most complete.  It’s an anime series that you’ll enjoy from the get-go.  First of all, it’s not hard to root for the main protagonist who got reincarnated as the weakest monster in almost every RPG, a slime.  I know he is not an ordinary one but his small and adorable appearance makes it impossible to hate him.  He also has an easy-going personality.  Second, this anime has a few boring moments.  Interesting events keep coming like a landslide to keep us entertained.  Humor is also sprinkled every now and then which serve as great breaks before serious and important plot elements are introduced.  You might have noticed that I’ve already on board to this anime’s hype train and honestly I am.   Read further if you want to know how That Time I got Reincarnated as a Slime captured my heart and other thousands of anime fans despite embracing an overused storyline.

Visuals: 4/5

I love it.  Every new RPG anime seems to get better visually nowadays.  As long as it’s not as bad as what they did to Death March to the Parallel World Rhapsody, I’m happy.  The animation sequence that I like the most is when Rimuru, the main protagonist, consults with Great Sage.  The Great Sage talks like an AI in a Sci-Fi movie which is really cool and the animation that comes with it completes the futuristic atmosphere.  It even makes me think that he might be reincarnated inside a game and not in the real world.  The fight scenes animation is also impressive.  It’s not as detailed as good as Seven Deadly Sins but it is still very entertaining. I would love to give it a perfect score but I’m reserving that for an anime who can blend both 2d and 3d animation and so far only Overlord attempted it with a passing grade.

 

 

Voice Acting: 3/5

I’m not really a fan of Rimuru’s voice as a slime.  He was an adult in his past life with a much deeper voice so why did he lose that?  I can understand sounding like a child as he mimics Shizue but as a slime I think it would have been better if he retained his voice during his past life because he can’t speak and it’s just for us to know what’s in his mind as the story progress.  Well, this is just my opinion and you might think otherwise.  Share your thoughts in the comments section below.  The voices of the supporting characters are good enough except for Ranga.  It echoes like he is a spirit or something.  I know it is to suggest that he speaks through telepathy but it would have been better if it’s done with a livelier and energetic voice to match a wolf’s personality.

 

 

Characters: 4/5

I love every character this anime series introduces from one episode to another.  They are unique compared to other RPG anime.  Yes, the orcs are still pigs but they have samurai-inspired ogres.  The ogre’s appearances are far from their ugly and fat RPG counterparts.  Based on how the story is currently going, their group will be Rimuru’s most powerful and loyal subordinates. The dragon Veldora also has a lovable personality.  He is prideful like other overpowered characters but he is secretly lonely and has a childish personality.  I find it very funny when he tried to stop Rimuru from leaving during their first meeting because he was lonely an wants a friend to talk to while still acting tough.

 

 

Plot progression (as of 3 episodes): 3/5

The pace of the story is good enough but I really want new plot twists.  I’ve watched almost every new RPG anime titles so I can say that it just follows a similar route to its predecessors.  This is acceptable for those who are new to this anime genre but not for those who have already watched Sword Art Online, Overlord, and the likes.  I’m expecting Rimuru will build his own country where all races are accepted and be a good ruler.  Other countries will disrupt the peace either because they are jealous of Rimuru’s achievements or they are against humans interacting with monsters.  This storyline is too scratched.  But I’m hoping That Time I got Reincarnated as a Slime will give us something new in the coming episodes.

 

 

So it is a Nay or Yay? Yay!

Do you play RPG?  Are you a fan of fantasy world anime?  Regardless if it’s either the two or both, you should watch That Time I go Reincarnated as a Slime.  This promising RPG anime will surely entertain you.  Don’t be fooled by other saying it’s very similar to Overlord and others that belong to the same genre because it’s not.  Yes, it’s an overpowered MC but not to the point that he is unbeatable.  He is reincarnated to another world but not as a human or other usual races but a mere slime.  And he has strong allies but they are not originally strong and they develop along with him. Watching Rimuru and his group progress as a community and overcome hardships together is definitely worth the time.

That’s my take on That Time I got Reincarnated as a Slime.  The holidays are fast approaching so I don’t know if I can squeeze in watching and writing more anime reviews in my schedule but I’ll try.  Are there anime shows you want to be reviewed?  If that’s so, feel free to leave your suggestions in the comments sections below.  As you might have noticed I only feature anime shows that interests me as of now but I give any title a chance especially those that are highly recommended by fellow anime lovers.   As always give us a LIKE and don’t forget to SHARE THE ANIME LOVE MINA!

Goblin Slayer: Does it live up to the hype?

The anime world has tons to offer when it comes to RPG/game inspired titles. From the pioneers like, Sword Art Online, down to the newcomers like Death March to the Parallel World Rhapsody, they introduce new flavors to spice up the genre and keep us wanting for more.

I’ve read a few chapters of the Goblin Slayer manga and was a bit impressed by how they came up with something different. Most RPG-inspired anime shows focus on strong demon lords and huge black dragons as their main antagonists. Goblin Slayer as the name suggests only has goblins as the main enemy. If you have even a little bit of RPG experience then you’ll know that they are among the weakest creature.

But Goblin Slayer, the main protagonists’ real name, thinks of it differently. He believes that goblins are the ultimate enemies of men and should be eradicated on site. His obsession with killing goblins and only goblins turned him into their races’ worst nightmare.

Watch the Goblin Slayer Trailer: 

Visuals: 5/5

Goblin Slayer’s animation and overall visual vibe are outstanding. I was thinking of giving it 5 stars even just after watching its intro.

Colors are also vibrant which surprised me because I expected it to lean towards a darker tone after considering all the brutal scenes in its novel origin. The fluid fight scenes sealed the deal for me. Though short, they are exciting to watch and the character’s movements flow naturally. Topped with decent visual effects, the fight scenes in Goblin Slayer do not just live by the hype in terms of violence but also in entertainment value.

If only the Death March to the Parallel World Rhapsody’s anime rendition was done the same, it would have been an instant hit.

Voice Acting: 4/5

The voices match the characters well. This is true for Goblin Slayer. Though I would love a deeper voice for him, it’s not to the point that I’ll complain about it. Other character’s voices also complement their corresponding personalities well.

Characters: 3/5

Goblin Slayer’s character is creative and new. However, the rest are not. They are the usual characters we see in RPG-inspired anime. It would help if they can provide even a brief background story for the supporting characters like what they’ve done for Goblin Slayer in the early episodes.

Plot progression (as of 3 episodes): 4/5

The story is a bit fast-paced which I like. I know some of you prefer things to be slower so more details can be introduced white giving us enough time to gain a better understanding of the fantasy world the characters are living but I find such kind of development a bit boring.

Don’t worry because Goblin Slayer’s pace isn’t too fast. There are slow and relaxed scenes here and there. The part where he shared a breakfast with his childhood friend and her father is a good example. It gave us a hint of Goblin Slayer’s simple life and slowed down the story before he jumped into another goblin-slaying quest.

So it is a Nay or Yay? Super Yay!

Goblin Slayer is not just a Yay but a Super Yay! I love it. All those who loved Sword Art Online and other RPG anime should give it a chance. Brutality is there so heads up if you can’t handle it. I’m against the idea of toning the violence down because it gave Goblin Slayer its unique identity. This anime is aimed at mature audiences who were once or are still playing Role-Playing games and want to be entertained by both worlds at the same time.

A few screenshots to convince you more to watch Goblin Slayer:

 

 

So that’s it.  Goblin Slayer is a 2018 anime series you should never miss!   So for now, excuse me because I’ll be watching a few more Goblin Slayer episodes and I hope they are as good as the previous 3.  Come and watch with me!  Or if by any reason you can’t do so, then read a few more of the anime articles I’ve written.  You can also say Hi in the comments section and give your personal thoughts about Goblin Slayer.   As always, give us a LIKE and SHARE THE ANIME LOVE MINA!

Bell Cranel – Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?

Bell Cranel is the main character in the anime series. He is an adventurer who wanted to get stronger in order to serve his Goddess Hestia to the fullest and to catch up to the one who inspires him. He was given the title Little Rookie mainly. This is because he is just a starter. However, amidst being a rookie he was already found with great potentials and has got some commendable achievements.

 

Appearance

A younger teenager with white hair and very expressive eyes. I could say that he is cute since I lot of female characters seems him that way and most of them become attracted to him at first meeting. Even though his life is at risk during adventures in the tower, he prefers light weight armors. He wears a high boots, black pants and black long sleeves aside from his armor. He also has a small sword which is a gift from his Goddess.

Personality

Bell is your typical shy type teenage boy. He gets shy when there are other people especially girls who want to be close to him. His main concern is helping his Goddess to the best of his abilities, protecting her and bringing the best for their familia. He has a deep concern for people who is very special to him.
The only problem with his personality is his trusting nature. He is easy on trust even to complete strangers. I think he just wants to show other people that they can be who they are in front of him and that he is willing to accept them as who they are. But, this character often leads to dire situations for him.
He has the tendency to help others regardless of the situation and even though it could mean the end of his life. He doesn’t care as long as he commits to what he believes is right.

 

Abilities

 

Fighting Skills

He has excellent fighting skills. And his light armor makes him more agile when it comes to battle. He could easily dodge and attack when needed.
Bell is fast so he could easily get to a certain spot or area where he has a big advantage to strike the enemy.

 

Liaris Freese

This is the skill that makes him grow really fast. That is why he is able to reach a high level in a faster rate than the usual adventurers. As long as his feelings are strong towards something like his desire to protect his Goddess, this ability will last.

 

Luck

I think this is the handiest skill for a person like Bell. He easily gets into a dire situation; however he doesn’t run out of luck due to this skill. As Hestia mentioned, it is like he has a divine protection. This could also explain why they get a lot of drops when he clears dungeons.

 

Argonaut

This skill is used to strengthen his attacks. This is very useful for situations where there are very strong enemy and he has to rely on an attack that could defeat the enemy in one strike. Bell is able to use this skill more efficiently as he continues to experiment on it and use it in battle.

 

Equipment

 

Hestia Knife

This knife was crafted Hephaestus who is a Goddess. It was due to a request from Hestia who is the Goddess of Bell. She wants to give bell this gift for him to become stronger and have a better chance of surviving in the dungeon.

 

The best thing about this weapon is it’s alive and becomes stronger as the wilder continues to grow. This could mean that the possibilities for this knife are limitless as long as Bell continue to level up.
There is nothing much special in the knife when you look at it physically aside from the hieroglyphics embedded in it. Additionally, the knife only works in the hands of Bell. If others use it, it will just be a dull and useless knife.

 

Dagger

Prior to having Hestia Knife, the first weapon of bell is a dagger.

 

Salamander Wool

It’s a red clock that serves as a protection against fire attacks.

 

Green Supporter

This equipment is a gift from Eina – a close friend of Bell. It serves as a protection and is lightweight which Bell prefers a lot.

 

Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? Review

Though there are really a lot of girl characters in this anime that somehow got attached to the Bell who is the main characters, there is a lot more to this anime. It’s not all fanservice.
The whole story of this anime revolves about the main character Bell and her Goddess Hestia. Bell is a rookie adventurer who suddenly became famous due to his accomplishments. The main character easily attracts gilrs not only because of his charm, but also because of his personality. He looks so innocent.

 

 

Fight Scenes

If you are after action and fight scenes, then this anime will surely satisfy you. When there are dungeons, there are definitely monsters and adventures and this makes the anime action packed. Aside from sword skills, adventurers can also use magic making things a lot more fun and really interesting to watch.

 

The anime focuses on how the main character gets stronger as the day goes by and as he slowly climb up the dungeon and meeting stronger enemies/creatures.

 

Characters

There are also a lot of interesting characters in this anime series like Aiz Wallenstein. She is the girl whom Bell idolizes so much because of her swordsmanship. She is one of the strongest characters in this anime series.

 

The different Goddess in the anime are also very interesting. Though they did not get as much screen time on this series yet, surely for the future seasons, some of them will be highlighted and will make things pretty much interesting. Some of these Goddesses are Hephaestus, Hermes and Freya who seems to be one of the antagonists.
Other characters to watch out would be Mikoto, Asfi, Riveria and Welf.

 

MMORPG Feel

It is best to mention that the setting of the anime is that of a MMORPG where adventurers level up and gain new skills and abilities. The only difference is that there is no re-spawn, when you are killed in the dungeon, you die. Adventurers grow as they continue to kill monsters as part of clearing parts of the dungeon.
The same as in an RPG game, then a monster is killed, it explodes and leaves gold, gems or items. So if you are a gamer, you would certainly appreciate this anime and would be very much interested to watch it.
This is also the main reason why when I watched this anime, it only took me 3 days to finish the whole season 1.

 

How about Fanservice?

I am personally not a fan of fanservice, for a find it uncomfortable to watch. However, I think it has become a part of most anime series. For Is It Wrong To Try To Pick Up Girls In A Dungeon, it was just right. It was not horrible for me. The only character with most fanservice is Hestia with her really large boobs, but aside from that, everything is cool.

 

The title might make you think that there will be lots of panty shots in this anime, but great to know that there is nothing like this in the anime. But still, you will see the face of the main character in the boobs of girl characters, not that often though.

 

Design and Animation

For me, everything in the design an animation was crafted well. I could give it a 9/10. The first thing you’ll notice when it comes to the character designs is how they were able to make them different. Every main character looks different. You can confirm for yourself by going to this link: Character Design.

 

So, Is it Recommended?

I would say YES. If given a rating, it would be 7/10. This is no good for those who are looking for lots of fanservice – it’s great to let this know upfront. However, when it comes to story, action, drama and characters, it is something that you would certainly enjoy watching.
Also a heads-up for those who are easily irritated with dumb main characters, I think most of the time, Bell is just so dumb failing to see through things.

What would you do if a portal to another world suddenly appears at the heart of your city?  I won’t blame you if you end up among the crowd that will surround the portal hoping to at least have a little peak of what’s found beyond.  But don’t you think this is a really reckless move?  What if the beings that created the portal appear while harboring ill intentions?  How would you react if they slaughter the people around you without even saying a word?  The protagonist of GATE, Yoji Itama, had to answer all these tricky questions and respond as soon as possible.  He had the option to run like everybody else but since he is a member of JSDF, his sworn oath to protect the citizens got the better of him and gave him enough courage to fight a mysterious primeval army that came through the portal.

The sword, arrow, spear, and wand are the most popular weapons of choice in RPG games.  They are weapons which greatly help players survive by improving their offensive ability.  But what if you can’t use none of them and be restricted to only a shield?  A shield is good for defense but it’s not ideal in inflicting damage to enemies.  This is the predicament Iwatani Naofumi in The Rising of the Shield Hero faced upon being transported in a fantasy world.  Right from the start, he was told that he needs to be the hero of a kingdom and save them against invading demons.  Anyone with a right mind would say that it’s an absurd request.  Yet, everyone in the throne room where he was summoned acted like it’s expected to happen.  Naofumi objected but he was framed and bad mouthed after refusing to be the people’s savior.  He decided to live independently while the other summoned heroes who specialize on other weapons stayed after being promised with fame and riches.  How will he survive in a new world as a newcomer?  Will his shield and the skills that come with it be enough to help him live freely in a fantasy world?

It was a normal work day for Ichirou Suzuki as a game developer.  Or that’s what he thought.  He was working almost 3 days straight to meet deadlines as he was working on upcoming game while fixing the issues of the already released one.  He decided to take nap to freshen up a bit but woken up in a different place.  Like any of us would think, his first guess was that everything is just part of a dream.  But then again, that hypothesis was easily disproved by how realistic the people, buildings, and the overall environment he had seen after being transported.  He also concluded that it’s not like the previous world since lizard-like warriors greeted him with flying spears right from the start.  Although he managed to eliminate an entire army of them in one hit using a skill from the game he was working on in his world, he was still cautious about the dangers of living in a world where monsters and demons exist.  Can a normal game developer strive in a fantasy world? How will he use his vast game knowledge and overpowered skills in the new world?

Although the light novel where this series is based from is pretty good, the anime adaptation is obviously rushed.  You can tell by how the fight scenes were made.  The characters seem lifeless which is why it got a very low score in the visual department.

Most of us nowadays can’t even spend an hour without looking at our smartphone.  It has become a necessity in our daily lives from making important calls to simply passing time.  But what if you transported to another world with it? I know you’ll say that the battery will eventually run out and it will turn out useless if there are no network providers in the new world.  Well, all of these issues can be solved in an instant with magic.  This is what happened to Touya Mochizuki.  He died from the previous world because of gods own fault so he was given a perk in the new one.  It made Touya confused at first but he simply had no choice since it was something arranged by god himself.  To his amazement, the new world he was transported to isn’t bad at all.  He met new friends and went on a journey while using his handy smartphone and its cheat-like functions to get out from dangerous situations, save his companions, and help others solve their problems.

This is like another version of Death march to the Parallel World Rhapsody. Sadly, it suffered from the same flaw as it was serialized.  The art style looks rushed and a lot of good parts in the novel were skipped.  I know the story is intended to be light and it’s designed for kids but it’s hard to overlook obvious plot holes like nobles easily acknowledging someone with no background and the main character instantly becoming a genius detective who can easily deduce complicated situations as if he is Sherlock’s apprentice

Just when Kazume Sato thought that his life would continue to be a boring and lonely one, he was transported to another world.  He was involved in an accident after trying to safe someone and it turns out he died in the process.  Such heroic act needs to be rewarded right?  Technically, he did nothing remarkable since the person he tried to save will eventually turn out just fine even without his help.  This was explained by the god he met after dying and it hit him hard.  He was given the option to either rest eternally or be reincarnated into another world.  Obviously, like him all of us would choose reincarnation right?  In his new life, he met weird but trustworthy friends who also have their own issues to deal with.  This anime series is not the usual transported to another world story simply because its plot is nowhere to be found.  It’s simply a collection of funny stories about the adventure of Kazume Sato and his friends.  Although a slight resemblance of a grand plot is there, in the end this anime series is designed to be humorous with a few action scenes perfectly sprinkled in several episodes.  It’s hard not to love an anime series like KonoSuba: God’s Blessing in this Wonderful World that can draw out a smile in your face after watching it.


Honorable Mentions:

Sword Art Online

This anime series is to be precise not a transported to another world anime.  But then again, it follows the concept of the MC being forced to live in another out worldly dimension. This time around, our hero, Kazuto Kirigaya was trapped in a VRMMO. He is a social outcast who prefers spending most of his free time in games which is why unlike newbies he instantly responded to the problem without being confused and clueless.

Satou, his game name, decided to play solo.  This is not because he doesn’t need anyone or he dislikes making friends but since the game became real including the dangers, he simply doesn’t want to see his newfound companions meeting their ends.  Eventually, he met Asuna and his worries and fears even heightened as he developed feelings toward her.  How can he save Asuna from the game and its dangerous elements?  Can’t both of them escape from the virtual prison and reunite in real life?

This anime series was a hit not only because it is very much relatable but it also has a lot of great anime fights. The franchise even extended to several movies which also feature Satou along with his friends as they try new VRMMOs and encounter new foes.

Log Horizon

MMORPGs have lost their shine thee past few years.  But then again, this sad reality should not stop us from reminiscing its golden times.  There was no better way to spend the weekend before than grinding a dungeon with friends or ambushing enemy guilds as your group rally towards being the best in the server.  This is what Log Horizon was designed to be as a game but it turned out to be a virtual prison for players.  Log Horizon is very similar to Sword Art Online but with more depth when it comes to character development and integrated game elements.  Any MMORPG enthusiast would love Log Horizon.  It even spent several episodes where the group raided a dungeon and faced a troublesome boss just to farm for rare items and treasures.

Although critics say that Log Horizon’s pace is too slow to be enjoyable, I disagree.  It’s just enough to keep us wanting for more every episode ends while satisfying our daily dose of anime action, camaraderie among characters even with various differences, and even a little bit of romance.

 


Old but Goodies:

Monster Rancher

The new generation won’t be able to experience the excitement and frustration of waiting, watching, and wanting for more anime every day.  Monster Hunter was released when there was still no free online streaming so we have no other option than to patiently watch every episode one day after another.  But if you think about it, that’s the exciting part.  You’ll have something to look forward to everyday and there are no spoilers since internet social media back then was also non-existent.  Going back to Monster Rancher, this anime show tells the story of Genki and his adventures in a new world where monsters rule.   Some are friends while others are foes.  Genki’s mission along with his newly formed team is to defeat the Monster King and bring peace to the land. The animation may be outdated but this show is truly a must-watch.  Classic anime at its finest!


Yu Yu Hakusho

Yusuke Urameshi was your average high school delinquent student.  He skips classes and often fights with gangs for fun.  But he’s not what he seems to be.  Yusuke is in fact a kind-hearted person who frowns upon the weak being bullied and abused.  He is even willing to lay down his own life just to save a stranger in danger.  He has proven this by jumping in between a child and a car.  Yusuke died but was revived by the afterlife administrator for him to serve as an agent whose duty is to maintain

order in both the land of the living and the dead.

This anime series is one of my favorites simply because it offers everything including lessons about friendship, selfless brotherhood and sisterhood, high-intensity action scenes, and heart-warming romance.  You simply can’t ask for more!  According to trustworthy sources, Yu Yu Hakusho 2018 which makes me excited more than anything else!  This is truly an anime series the current generation would love to experience!


Magic Knight Rayearth

Field trips excite us above anything else when we were in high school.  But what if it would lead us to another world?  This is what happened to the three girls who are the main protagonists of Magic Knight Rayearth.  This classic anime is a must-watch especially for those who are into magic, knighthood, heroines, and romance.  The three have different personalities and gained unique powers after being transported to another world.  Although I have not completely watched this series, most of my girlfriends love it so I’m giving this one the benefit of the doubt.   Have you watched at least an episode of Magic Knight Rayearth before? How would you feel about a remake? Be sure to leave your thoughts in the comment section below!

Having second thoughts about being transported to another world after reading the list?  I don’t blame you.  It’s cool that you’ll be able to see new things and places, make new friends, and start a grand adventure but the hazards will also be real.  What if you don’t have a cheat-like ability like most of MCs in transported to another world anime?  That’s truly a disaster right?  You might even experience more hardships in a fantasy world than the one we have now so I think it’s best to think about it carefully if ever you’ll be given a chance to choose.   In the end, contentment is nothing but an elusive dream regardless if you live in a normal or fantasy world.  We always want what we don’t have, it’s the sad reality so might as well enjoy what you already have to the fullest.  As always, give us a LIKE and continue SHARING the ANIME LOVE MINA!
