posted on by Egan Loo
The staff for the Tensei Shitara Slime Datta Ken: Guren no Kizuna (That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime: Scarlet Bonds) anime film unveiled the film's November 25 opening and a new poster visual on Thursday. The poster shows not only the protagonist Rimuru himself, but also other characters such as the ogre survivor Hiiro wielding a nagamaki sword over his shoulder and the mysteriously powerful Queen Towa offering a prayer.
Fuse, the author of the original light novel series, drafted the film's brand-new original story. The story will center on a new country named Razha (Note: Name romanizations are not official), located to the west of Tempest. Rimuru and his companions get involved in a long-running conspiracy that swirls around a woman with a mysterious power. Rimuru and his commander Benimaru also encounter another ogre survivor named Hiiro (seen below), who used to hold Benimaru in high regard.
The first television anime of Taiki Kawakami's manga, itself an adaptation of Fuse and Mitz Vah's light novel series, premiered in October 2018. Crunchyroll streamed the anime, and FUNimation Entertainment streamed an English dub.
The second television anime season premiered its first cours (quarter of a year) in January 2021. The television anime of Shiba's spinoff manga The Slime Diaries: That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime (Tensura Nikki Tensei Shitara Slime Datta Ken) then premiered on Tokyo MX in April 2021. After The Slime Diaries ended, the second cours of the second season began in July 2021 — for nine straight months of television anime from the franchise last year.
