The new trailer has revealed the Reincarnated As A Slime Movie release date! Here is everything we know so far.
Since its appearance in 2018, this anime has attracted audiences primarily with its unusual protagonist. While Slime isn’t the only isekai whose protagonist hasn’t reincarnated as a human, it’s definitely the most influential. After the appearance of Rimuru, a new era began for this genre. Creators began to pay more attention to the writing of the main characters. This resulted in strange reincarnations becoming an indispensable part of every anime season.
Given the great success of the first two seasons, it was no surprise when a movie was announced. Now, a year later, we finally know when the Reincarnated as a Slime Movie: Scarlet Bond release date will be!

However, the very next moment he wakes up and realizes that he has been reincarnated as a slime. In addition, he also discovers his new special ability, “Predator”. This power allows him to gain the characteristics of anything he absorbs. In the cave where he was reincarnated, he meets Veldora. He is a dragon who has been imprisoned there for 300 years. From the dragon, Satoru gets the name Rimuru and gives Veldora the name Tempest. This is the beginning of their friendship.
