Fuse, the author of the original light novel series, drafted the film’s brand-new original story. The story will center on a new country named Raja, located to the west of Tempest. Rimuru and his companions get involved in a long-running conspiracy that swirls around a woman with a mysterious power. Rimuru and his commander Benimaru also encounter another ogre survivor named Hiiro, who used to hold Benimaru in high regard.
TRUE and STEREO DIVE FOUNDATION will perform the insert songs “Jōka” (Purifying Song) and “SPARKLES,” respectively. MindaRyn, TRUE, and STEREO DIVE FOUNDATION have all previously performed theme songs for the franchise‘s television anime.
The first television anime of Taiki Kawakami‘s manga, itself an adaptation of Fuse and Mitz Vah‘s light novel series, premiered in October 2018. Crunchyroll streamed the anime, and FUNimation Entertainment streamed an English dub.

After The Slime Diaries ended, the second cours of the second season began in July 2021 — for nine straight months of television anime from the franchise last year.
