That Time I Got Reincarnated As A Slime Movie: Plot Details
For the time being, the makers have not clarified what will be the premise of the upcoming movie. However, strong speculations suggest that That Time I Got Reincarnated As A Slime Movie will be the connecting edition between Season 2 and Season 3 of the anime. The official synopsis has not been revealed just yet. But it is safe to say that the film will continue the plotlines left behind the second sequel. In the story so far, Rimuru has successfully taken down the Demon Lord for the time being.
The final fight between the protagonist and Clayman served as the perfect conclusion for the season. In the epilogue, fans saw Rimuru return back to the place where it all started- the forest of Jura. He is now the new Demon Lord of the Jungle. From the third season forward, the story will explore Rimuru’s life as the conqueror of Jura. The main concern for Rimuru as the Demon Lord is going to be making peace with the adjacent Kingdoms.
Hence, his first quest will be the resource negotiations with the kingdom of Falmuth. The events of this dialogue will lead to the ultimate war with the Western Holy Church.
Will There Be A Season 3?
Two days ago, the finale episode of That Time I Got Reincarnated As A Slime Season 2 came out. Now, the speculations for the next season are already catching heat. So far, there has not been any official announcement from the studio’s side to confirm the renewal of Season 3. However, the last episode of the sequel ended with a note reading “to be continued.” This confirms that the season has not been canceled at any cost. For now, it can be assumed that the regular summer slate of the release might get a push ahead.
This is because the movie release is due next year. In the upcoming season, fans can expect a follow-up from the plot of the movie. Besides the primary war arc, new conflicts will also come up in the film to tease storylines for the next season. Rimuru’s powers and actions as the new Lord of Jura will nudge many nearby kingdoms. As a result, the Western Holy Church will begin to form alliances with other enemies. Amid this political warfare, Hinata Sakaguchi will become one of the strongest enemies of Rimuru.
Thus, the seeds of this rivalry will be sown in That Time I Got Reincarnated As A Slime Movie itself. The picture will get clearer as the release date comes nearer.
Is There Enough Source Material?
That Time I Got Reincarnated As A Slime is an immense franchise. The original Novel Series is often dictated as a tedious read by fans. Moreover, the franchise itself has four different manga parts. It is safe to say that the anime wing has more than enough source material that can serve content for more than five anime seasons. The first two seasons, including the two cours, cover up to eighty-seven chapters of the first manga. Thus, the movie will continue the plot from the 88th chapter forward.
On the other hand, the manga roughly has around a hundred chapters in total. After that, the story will jump to Ways of the Monster Nation Manga, which continues the plot. Even after that, three long mangas will be left to be adapted by the studio.
