Fuse’s That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime light novel series has done very well for itself over the years. In addition to a successful anime adaptation, the latest update on the series has the novels and its manga adaptations and spin-offs combining for an impressive milestone of 30 million copies in print.
Featuring illustrations by Mitz Vah, the print edition of the series—which initially kicked off on user-generated novel publishing site Shousetsuka ni Narou—started its release in May 2014. The series marked 20 million copies in print back in September 2020, so it wasted no time whatsoever adding another 10 million to that total. The second season of the TV anime adaptation gave the series a major boost when it aired, and circulation is expected to increase further when the anime film premieres this fall.
Crunchyroll streams the anime adaptation of That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime. Here’s the official synopsis:
Corporate worker Mikami Satoru is stabbed by a random killer, and is reborn to an alternate world. But he turns out to be reborn a slime!
Thrown into this new world with the name Rimuru, he begins his quest to create a world that’s welcoming to all races.
