What Can You Expect from Tensura Season 3

Fans of the beloved isekai series, “That Time I Got Reincarnated As a Slime,” have been in a whirlwind of fan services through many promotion of the titles especially since the ongoing “Tensura 10th Project.” This commemorative project, which kicked off in February 2023, marks the 10th anniversary of the franchise with a range of exciting releases. Among these are the three-episode OVA batch titled “That Time I Got Reincarnated As a Slime: Coleus’ Dream,” bundled with the Blu-Ray edition of season 2.

Additionally, fans were treated to the theatrical release of the “Scarlet Bond” movie in late 2022. The icing on the cake? The much-anticipated announcement of the third season of the anime, slated for a Spring 2024 debut, which was revealed following the final Japanese screening of the movie. Furthermore, as the Winter 2024 season draws to a close, anticipation mounts as fans eagerly anticipate what the upcoming third season of “That Time I Got Reincarnated As a Slime” will bring.

In the ever-expanding realm of isekai anime, where new titles emerge with each passing season, it’s easy for many to blend into a familiar template. Yet amidst this sea of offerings, standout gems emerge sporadically. “That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime” or also known as Tensura firmly secures its place among these exceptional titles, offering a refreshing take on the genre.

That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime started out as a web novel, and now it has been adapted into proper light novels, manga, and anime series and movies. The second season of the anime was aired in 2021, with a new movie planned to be released in 2022. The movie was feature a newly written original story, so that means the third season of the anime will continue the story based on the original light novel from volume 7 through 9. Here are some of the things that you can expect to see in the third season.

Official Trailer That Time that I Got Reincarnated as a Slime Season 3

What do we know so far?

The confirmation of the third season of “That Time I Got Reincarnated As a Slime” was an exciting moment for fans, revealed during the Grand Finale screening of the “Scarlet Bond” film in November 2022. At the time, the only piece of information was the key visual, which featured the Holy Knight Captain Hinata Sakaguchi with her sword drawn, while an unknown hand that most likely belongs to Rimuru wields a sword in response.

However, as time progressed, more details emerged, including an enticing trailer unveiled in February. The trailer not only showcased the brewing conflict between the Ten Great Saints, led by Sakaguchi, and the denizens of Tempest, but also celebrated the series’ milestone of 40 million copies in circulation.

The anticipation only intensified as the release date for the third season drew nearer. Scheduled to run for two consecutive cours, the first part premiered on April 5 at 11 pm JST as part of the esteemed “Friday Anime Night” programming block on NTV and its 29 affiliates. Preceding the season premiere was a recap episode titled “Digression in Diablo’s Journal,” slated for March 30, with two compilation episodes following on April 3 and 4. Returning to helm the production is 8bit studio, renowned for their work on the previous seasons, movies, and OVA content. Atsushi Nakayama, a seasoned director familiar with the series, returns to take the helm once again.

Toshizo Nemoto (Series Composition; Log Horizon) is responsible for series composition and will be supervising the scripts, while Ryōma Ebata returns as character designer and Takahiro Kishida (Character Design, Haikyuu!) designs the monsters. Jin Aketagawa (Sound Director, Undead Unluck) returns as sound director while Hitoshi Fujima is responsible for the music, with STEREO DIVE FOUNDATION performing the opening theme song, “PEACEKEEPER”; while the ending theme will be “Believer”, performed by Rin Kurusu.

New Characters

As expected, the new season of That Time I Got Reincarnated As a Slime will have plenty of characters we have not yet encountered in the series, and the updated cast list is as follows: Inori Minase (Hestia, DanMachi) as Maribel Rosso; Kenji Nojima (Nobuchika Ginoza, Psycho-Pass) as Leonard; Eiji Takemoto (Hajime Tsukishima, Golden Kamuy) plays Arnaud; Hajime Iijima (Gakushu, Ikki Tousen) plays Bacchus; Haruka Aikawa (Koma Sakuaraba, Otaku Elf) as Ritus; Wataru Komada (Asguiaro Ebern, BLEACH: Thousand-Year Blood War) plays Garde; Taishi Murata (Maruo Eiichiro, Baby Steps) plays Fritz; Shōya Chiba (Sigma, Bungo Stray Dogs) plays Saare; Mari Hino (Kojirō, The Elusive Samurai) as Glenda and finally, Masashi Yamane (Duncan, My Daughter Left the Nest and Returned an S-Rank Adventurer) as Grigori. The main cast members are expected to reprise their roles from previous seasons.

The new characters form part of the Ten Great Saints, of whom Hinata Sakaguchi (voiced by Manami Numakura) is leader as someone who is second only to the Holy Emperor himself. The Ten Great Saints are a division of the Holy Knights of the Western Holy Church, and only the very strongest can enter this highly exclusive branch of the organization.

Within the Ten Great Saints, the hierarchy is determined by combat prowess and ability, and as we already know, Sakaguchi is a high-ranked member of the Western Holy Church whose combat ability severely overwhelmed Rimuru the last time they met.

Legendary Battle

The trailer for the upcoming season tantalizingly presents two pivotal meetings. One side showcases Rimuru Tempest in earnest discussion with his trusted allies within the walls of Tempest, addressing an undeniable threat looming on the horizon. Meanwhile, on the opposing front, Hinata Sakaguchi and the formidable Ten Great Saints of the Western Holy Church assemble to deliberate on the matter of “the nation of monsters,” Tempest, and Hinata’s solemn mission: the elimination of Rimuru. Their confrontation is set to culminate in a gripping one-on-one duel, a showdown to settle the score once and for all.

Fans will vividly recall Rimuru’s arduous encounter with the Holy Knight in their previous clash, marked by Hinata’s resolute refusal to engage in discourse with what she perceives as a mere “monster.” Adding another layer of complexity, Hinata’s prowess with the blade stems not only from her Japanese heritage but also from her tutelage under Shizu, introducing a poignant twist of fate for Rimuru. With tensions escalating and personal histories intertwining, this upcoming battle promises to eclipse even the intensity of their previous skirmish.

Tempest Founder Foundation

In a grand gesture to commemorate the establishment of Tempest and foster stronger diplomatic ties with neighboring nations, Rimuru unveils plans for the grandest festival the world has ever seen: “The Tempest Founder’s Festival.”

Yet, beyond its diplomatic aims, the festival serves as an ambitious marketing endeavor, strategically designed to spotlight Tempest on the global stage. Rimuru leaves no stone unturned, ensuring his staff are primed to exhibit the nation’s unparalleled hospitality industry, tantalizing cuisine, captivating entertainment, and cutting-edge technology, setting Tempest leagues ahead of its counterparts worldwide.
