As players of Monster Hunter and Dungeons & Dragons know, the slime is not exactly the king of the fantasy monsters. So when a 37-year-old Tokyo salaryman dies and wakes up in a world of elves and magic, he's a little disappointed to find he's become a blind, boneless slime monster.
A SPIRITUAL REAWAKENING
Rimuru's taking a break from managing his kingdom of monsters by honoring the memory of his friend Shizu. Her former pupils will perish if he can't find a way to rein in their unstable magical energy, and he might just have the answer. It will involve enlisting the help of powerful elemental spirits--but he's about to find out that their fairy queen is a bit of a loose cannon...relief. But all is not well... In fact, there are forces of humankind in this fantasy world that do not look kindly upon a slime-led nation of monsters. And now, insidious threats to Rimuru and the country of Tempest may be lurking around every corner!
