    I shed a manly tear when the montage clips started. This was such a great ride a I really don't think there was ever an episode that felt weak or lacking. Man I'm gonna miss this, but at least it looks like there will be a second season, and one more episode with Shizu.

    I don't remember the last time I watched a show where it ended and still showed extra episodes in the coming weeks. It was a great ride, and I'm sad to see it go. The way Chloe feels about Slime sensei leaving is how I feel about the show.

    Was hoping for Rimuru to follow his "I like you too," with an "And all of you guys"
    Oh well. I think that particular game was made after this was written.

    Chloe getting a super powerful future spirit is one thing, but Shizu's mask too? Lucky gal.

    Pretty sad to hear that it's ending a bit prematurely here, but I'll still watch those extra episodes cause I've enjoyed the characters and the world so much.

    I'm watching previews for that Isekai Quartet and all I could think is that Slime really should belong in there too.

    Does Chloe's spirit resemble the Hero that Shizu was following around?

    That wasn't the only hint about what's going on with Chloe. The biggest one was during her introduction, and Veldora having a reaction to Chloe being there.

    I'm pretty damn sure Chloe's spirit is Chloe herself from the future.

    Season 1 isn't even over yet and there's already an announcement for a second season. Nice.

    Well eps 24 is p much just a side story for a character that, narrative wise, made a debut in S2 and probably Shizue too, judging from the title. S1 story ends with eps 23

    Will 2 more cours be enough to finish the story?

    Doubt it, thereĀ“s still a ton of shit after where this season ends unless they just rush the hell out of everything.

    Nope. Either the show get many seasons, or the anime will have to make a good closure without being too much of a promotion-bait for the LN

    Awesome news, faster than expected :bury

    Personally been looking out most for the next few arcs so the wait to 2020 will be worth it :gglife

    The anime seems to adapt stuff at a mostly leisurely pace, so I'm not surprised it didn't get all that far despite its decent length. I think that sort of pacing suits Slime, though.

    More series should follow the same example. The reason the whenever felt weak to me is because the pacing was handled masterfully through its entire run.

    The problem with a lot of anime is that they either get too little or too much run time. The ones with too much run too slow and the ones with too little run too fast. Slime got its length right and then matched its pace to its run time and the tone of the show.

    Just look at Index III that started at the same time in comparison. It was highly awaited, but its pacing is a disaster and its production values aren't good enough for the scale of what's being adapted. Sure 26 episodes is no small number these days, but the show needed at least 3 cours bare minimum to get through what was left to adapt and instead we got a rush job in 26. They could've done 26 then 13 or something. I think Index covers like 3 times the number of volumes Slime does with one more episode.

    There's also a lot of shows that would benefit from 1.5 cours in terms of length. Too much for a max of 13 eps, but too little for a minimum of like 22. Somewhere in the middle like 18-ish episodes would do wonders for many anime.

    I'm still surprised that Slime was as good as it was. It's literally 8bit's first good production.

    Spoiler:
    A Saint Seiya reference is something i least expected to see from a TenSlime side story adaptation

    Nice little episode though. Really showcase how big shot of a guy Diablo is, season 2 gonna be good just from his presence alone

    Holy shit, this filler was :bury. 10/10 ep.

    Seeing healthy Shizu while she was still in control of her powers was awesome. Never expected the Diablo part, good job tying his intro with Shizu. Can't recall if it happened in the WN but who cares :wellshit

    Completely agree with the rest regarding Diablo as someone to watch out for in future arcs, one of the reasons I so wanted a 2nd season.

    Arguably the strongest and best subordinate of Rimuru's by a mile, my personal fav
    . Hope the continuation will do him justice.
