posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda

Animax Asia announced on Monday that it will air the television anime of author Kisetsu Morita and illustrator Benio's I've Been Killing Slimes for 300 Years and Maxed Out My Level (Slime Taoshite 300-nen, Shiranai Uchi ni Level Max ni Nattemashita) light novel series. The anime will premiere on Animax Asia on April 11 at 7:00 p.m. GMT +8.

Animax Asia also announced that it will air the Rent-A-Girlfriend anime, as well as the third season of the Golden Kamuy anime.

The I've Been Killing Slimes for 300 Years and Maxed Out My Level anime will premiere in Japan on April 10.

Yen Press is releasing the novel series in North America, and it describes the first novel volume:

After living a painful life as an office worker, Azusa ended her short life by dying from overworking. So when she found herself reincarnated as an undying, unaging witch in a new world, she vows to spend her days stress free and as pleasantly as possible. She ekes out a living by hunting down the easiest targets - the slimes! But after centuries of doing this simple job, she's ended up with insane powers...how will she maintain her low key life now?!

Nobukage Kimura (episode director for tsuritama, Gatchaman Crowds insight) is directing the anime at REVOROOT. Tatsuya Takahashi (The [email protected] Cinderella Girls, And you thought there is never a girl online?) is in charge of series composition, and Keisuke Goto (Fate/Grand Order: First Order, Babylon) is designing the characters. Keiji Inai (Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?, The Royal Tutor) is composing the music.

Animax Asia will begin airing Rent-A-Girlfriend on Tuesday at 10:00 p.m. GMT +8 with the first two episodes, and will air two episodes every Monday and Tuesday.

The anime premiered on the Animeism programming block in Japan in July 2020 and aired for 12 episodes. Muse Asia licensed the anime and streamed it through iQIYI in Southeast Asia as it aired in Japan. The show will have a second season.

Kodansha Comics is publishing the manga in North America, and it describes the story:

In Japan, the lonely have a new way out — online services that rent out dads, children, even girlfriends! When Kazuya's true love dumps him, he's just desperate enough to try it, and he's shocked at how cute and sweet his rental girlfriend turns out to be. But she wants to keep their "relationship" a secret, and there's a complication... she goes to his university... and their grandmothers are in the same home... and they live next door to each other?! And Kazuya finds out she's not nearly as nice in "real life"..

Kazuomi Koga (Rainy Cocoa, Welcome to Rainy Color) directed the anime at TMS Entertainment, and Mitsutaka Hirota (Anime-Gataris, Nanbaka, The Prince of Tennis II) supervised the series scripts. Kanna Hirayama designed the characters, and HYADAIN composed the music. The staff also includes color key artist Fumiko Ishiguro, art director Minoru Akiba, compositing director of photography Shintaro Sakai, and editor Yumiko Nakaba.

Animax Asia will begin airing the third season of Golden Kamuy on April 14 at 10:00 p.m. GMT +8 with the first two episodes, and will air two episodes every Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday.

The third season premiered in Japan last October, and it aired for 12 episodes.

The new anime featured returning staff with Hitoshi Nanba directing at Geno Studio. Noboru Takagi oversaw the series scripts, and Kenichi Ohnuki was the character designer. Kenichiro Suehiro composed the music.

The first television anime season of Satoru Noda's Golden Kamuy manga premiered in April 2018. The second season premiered in October 2018. Animax Asia began airing the first season of the anime in April 2020, and it aired the second season immediately after that.

The manga centers on Saichi Sugimoto, a veteran of the Russo-Japanese war who heads to Hokkaido to find gold to take care of the wife of his fellow soldier. He teams up with an Ainu hunter named Asirpa to find a hidden stash of gold stored by criminals.

Noda launched the ongoing manga in Shueisha's Young Jump magazine in 2014. The manga's 15th compiled book volume shipped in September 2018, and it bundled an anime DVD focusing on the manga's Barato arc. The manga's 17th volume shipped in March 2019 and bundled an anime DVD. A third original anime video (OVA) for the Monster arc shipped with the manga's 19th volume in September 2019.
