that time i got reincarnated as a slime

Fuse and Mitz Vah’s That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime light novel series is inspiring a new spinoff. This time around it’s a new gourmet-themed spinoff by Chika Nakatani—titled Tensei Shitara Slime Datta Ken: Bishoku-den ~Peko to Rimuru no Ryori Techo~, or That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime: Gourmet Legend ~Peko and Rimuru’s Cooking Notebook~—which will launch in the next issue of Kodansha’s Monthly Shonen Sirius magazine on April 26. 

In Gourmet Legend, Rimuru tasks Peko, a wounded goblin slayer warrior, with filling everyone’s stomach to make them all happy. Thus begins Peko’s new kitchen challenge. 

Previous Slime spinoffs include Wataru Kajika’s Clayman Revenge manga, which made its April 2022 debut in the pages of Monthly Shonen Sirius. 

The original novels are available through Yen Press and Crunchyroll streams the TV anime adaptation of That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime, and also released the anime film in theaters, describing the story like so:

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.
