posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The official website for the That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime anime revealed on Tuesday that the franchise will receive three new original anime DVDs (OAD) that will be bundled with the manga's 14th, 15th, and 16th volumes. The site also revealed a new visual for the first of the new OADs.
Original novel author Fuse wrote new stories exclusively for the three-part anime. Rimuru, who is teaching Shizu's students as a substitute at Kingdom of Ingracia's Freedom Academy, takes part in an orientation in actual field combat in the school's annual outdoors training event. Transfixed by the prize he gets if he wins, he accepts a challenge by the teacher Jeff. However, an enemy appears before the students ...
The first new OAD will be bundled with the 14th manga volume on March 27, after a screening event featuring cast members Miho Okasaki (Rimuru), Chikahiro Kobayashi (Ranga), and Azusa Tadokoro (Chloe) at the Marunouchi Piccadilly theater in Tokyo on January 26. The release date for the 15th and 16th manga volumes (with their accompanying OADs) will be revealed at a later date.
The first OAD shipped with the 12th volume of Taiki Kawakami's manga on July 9. Crunchyroll and Funimation streamed the OAD on the same day. The second OAD will ship in Japan with the manga's 13th volume on December 4, and Crunchyroll and Funimation will also stream that OAD on the same day.
The television anime of Taiki Kawakami's manga, which in turn adapted author Fuse and artist Mitz Vah's light novel series, premiered in October 2018. Crunchyroll streamed the series, and FUNimation Entertainment streamed an English dub.
The anime will have a second season in 2020.
