That Time I Got Reincarnated As A Slime Fans Just Got Amazing Movie News

If you enjoy anime with plenty of magic and wacky monsters, you probably don't need us to tell you about "That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime." The manga-turned-anime follows a standard corporate employee who ends up being killed and subsequently reincarnated in a magical, alternate reality. The only problem is that he no longer has his human body and has been brought back to life as, you guessed it, slime. He must navigate this strange new world, acquiring allies along the way to build a new nation accepting of all entities, no matter what they look like.

You can watch the first two seasons of "That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime" in their entirety on Crunchyroll. It's a great way to catch up on the series now that Season 2 has ended as you wait in anticipation for Season 3 to debut. However, fans of the anime have a lot more to look forward to than more episodes. It's just been announced that a movie based on the property will come out at some point in 2022.

The notice of the film came from Twitter, with a quick 15-second video showcasing the announcement.
