The genre that is Isekai will normally see a regular citizen of a mundane world not unlike our own being placed into a magical environment wherein they have been given wild new abilities. With some series putting its protagonists into the shoes of a powerhouse, such as Overlord, That Time I Got Reincarnated As A Slime saw the franchise's hero be placed into the role of a low-power creature that has to work his way to the top. Now, with the second season having come to an end, a new poster reveals when the film, Scarlet Bonds, will arrive.
Like a number of Isekai series that received anime adaptations, That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime first began as a light novel series, written by creator Fuse, and eventually received a manga following its success as a novel. With Studio Eight Bit responsible for the first two seasons of the anime adaptation, it's no surprise to see them making a comeback for the movie as the next chapter in the life of Rimuru Tempest will return to Isekai fans.
The Official Twitter Account for That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime shared a new poster for its upcoming movie, Scarlet Bonds, that features the main cast of the film while also confirming that anime fans in Japan will have the opportunity to see the movie in theaters on November 25th:
If you haven't had the opportunity to check out the television series, That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime, you can watch the 48 episodes on Crunchyroll with the streaming service offering the following official description of the series:
"Corporate worker Mikami Satoru is stabbed by a random killer and is reborn to an alternate world. But he turns out to be reborn as 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."
While this unique Isekai series was popular enough to receive two television series and a movie, a third season has yet to be confirmed at this point.
