That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime Anime Season 2 to Premiere on January 12 After COVID-19 Delay

Crunchyroll, Funimation to stream new season, with English dub on Funimation

Crunchyroll and Funimation announced on Friday that the second anime season of That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime will premiere on January 12 in Japan. Crunchyroll will stream the season in North America, Central America, South America, Europe, Africa, Oceania, and the Middle East. Funimation will stream the English-subtitled version on January 5, and it will stream an English dub at a date to be announced later.

The first 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 specifically adapted and is based on Kawakami's manga adaptation of the original novels.

The anime's second season will run two cours or two quarters of a year. The first cours will premiere in January 2021, while the second cours will premiere in July 2021. Shiba's spinoff manga The Slime Diaries: That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime (Tensura Nikki Tensei Shitara Slime Datta Ken) will also get a television anime that will premiere in April 2021. Each of these anime were originally slated to premiere three months earlier, but were delayed due to the new coronavirus disease (COVID-19) affecting their production schedules.

Update: Crunchyroll, Funimation, and the anime's official website corrected the premiere date to January 12 three days after the original announcement.
