What to Expect in “That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime” Season 3?
If you’re a fan of “That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime,” then you’ve probably been eagerly anticipating the release of Season 3. While it hasn’t been officially announced just yet, there’s plenty of speculation about what viewers can expect from the forthcoming season. Let’s take a closer look at what we know so far based on the light novel series that serves as the basis for the anime.
The Light Novels
Volume 20 and the Conclusion of the Series
“That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime” is based on a series of light novels that are written by Fuse and illustrated by Mitz Vah. As of now, the series is up to Volume 20, and while the English translations are still a bit behind, a note from the author in Volume 19 confirmed that they planned on bringing the series to a conclusion within the next three volumes. This means the forthcoming Season 3 might cover the events from the latter end of the series.
The Events of Volume 7-9
Season 2 of the anime mostly adapted the fifth and sixth volumes of the light novel series. So, it’s highly likely that Season 3 will cover the events of the next few volumes. In Volume 7, tensions run high after a priest that Rimuri sends to Lubelius gets murdered. However, things calm down a bit in Volume 8, which focuses more on a festival that’s taking place in Tempest. The main event of the festival is a battle tournament featuring the legendary hero Lightspeed Masayuki, though this doesn’t take place until Volume 9.
