Tensei Shitara Slime Datta Ken was one of the anime where I got really excited as they announced that there will be a second season. I was a huge fan of the first one so I expected a lot from the first part of the sequel.
But to be honest, I almost dropped the second season. I’m happy I didn’t but there were a few things which really annoyed me.
The animation of the first part from the second season was as nice as in the first season, if not even a bit better. Fights had awesome animation effects and also the music fits quite well to the scene.
However, I didn’t really like the way the season was structured. The first four to five episodes were very good and entertaining, but then the tension decreased and each episode ended with a cliffhanger, which I find in seasonal anime of course not so great, but I think everyone sees it that way 😅. Also it took quite some time until the Rimuru finally started to collect all the souls to become a demon lord.
But as he started the massacre the anime became really really nice again. Because of the awesome animation and also the story the last few episodes were awesome.
After his transformation into a demon lord I was glad that he didn’t turned into a power-hungry demon who wants to destroy as much as he can. It’s nice to see that rimuru stayed the same besides that he got tons of upgrades and his magic capacity multiplied itself about 10 times.
Because this was just the first Part of the second season, I’ll keep this a short review and after the second season is completed after the summer season, I’m going to write a more detailed review about the whole sequel.
Thank you for reading this short review, have a great day!
