Funimation confirmed today that its anime streaming service will carry the That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime dub. No exact timeframe was announced other than that it will arrive in “summer,” although the series is currently set to continue on July 6, 2021, in Japan. So, it shouldn’t arrive much later.
The second half of Season 2 will pick up where things left off, with Rimuru and the rest of the Jura Tempest Federation recovering from the dark and twisted events that unfolded in the end of the first half of Season 2. The group will look to punish the one responsible for everything, the Demon Lord Clayman.
The English dub of That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime stars voice actors Brittney Kawbowski as Rimuru Tempest, Tyson Rinehart as Ranga, Michelle Rojas as Shion, and Tia Ballard as Shuna.
The franchise recently hit a couple of new milestones. The That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime series reached over 25 million copies in circulation and the official Twitter reached 200,000 followers. To commemorate these milestones, 20 prizes were awarded to those who followed the Twitter account and retweeted a post. Additionally, a free wallpaper that celebrates the occasion is available to download now.
That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime was originally a light novel series written by Fuse and illustrated by Mitz Vah. Eight Bit’s anime television adaptation of the series premiered in 2018. The first part of the second season made its debut in January 2021 after it was delayed due to the pandemic.
