They say online that Tensei Shitara Slime Datta Ken is one of the few actually good isekai novels like Overlord, Log Horizon, and Gate where the characters are likeable and the story is enjoyable. No one starts out at 100 if you catch my drift.

That's a subjective view on all isekai anime. Then again.... there have been some pretty bad ones. Also isn't Ainz OP? The seiyuu lineup is pretty strong though, so I will be watching regardless.

Synopsis

'My life as a slime has begun.'

Before he can realize it, salaryman Satoru Mikami is reincarnated in another world. However, the form he takes on is a slime. He befriends a magical being and freely using the skills he's acquired, the story of a slime who solves various problems begins now.

Three Episode Impression

I must admit, I’ve gotten rather tired of isekai anime that feature the same tropes: Overpowered protagonist, harem, troubling issues that are easy to fix, etc. Isekai wa Smartphone to Tomo ni was where I just about had it. Sure, there are some great ones like Youjo Senki and Isekai Maou, but now comes Tensei Shitara Slime Datta Ken. According to others, this is the start to it all, although I frankly think that shoujo anime like Fushigi Yuugi started the isekai genre without people really noticing it. Anyway, Tensei Shitara Slime Datta Ken exceeded my expectations by being hilarious, stupid, and more. Our protagonist is later named Rimuru and he cracks me up because despite being killed in one world, he just seems to enjoy life like a video game in the next, even though he’s nothing but a lowly slime! He runs around eating things in a cave because there’s nothing else to do. He never seems to complain. Heck, he makes friends with a tsundere dragon and eats him to save him from the barrier. Hahaha. Then there’s the little story about the ogres and direwolves, which was fun. It’s not an anime that takes itself seriously, and that’s perfectly fine. That’s what makes it such a fun watch so far.
