Mikami Satoru was just an ordinary salary man. One day his work colleague invites him into town to meet his girlfriend.
Said girlfriend was a famous actress with crazy jealous fans and one of those fans attacks Satoru’s friend with a knife. Satoru takes the hit for him and dies. But as he laid there dying a strange voice stated talking to him. He wakes up having been transported to another world. But not only that, the voice interpreted his dying words as requests. “I’m bleeding so much” meant he wants a body that does not bleed. “I’m so cold/hot” meant he wanted a body that is resistant to temperatures. As a bonus, his remark that he wished he was more aggressive with girls gets him the unique skill “Predator”, which lets him eat and copy the abilities of anything he eats. Put these all together and Satoru is not an overpowered slime monster. Join him as he befriends a dragon, leads a village of goblins and turns the little forests he lives in into a powerful alliance of monsters.
I loved this show a lot. While the OP protagonist has been done to death, this one was a tad more refreshing as the focus wasn’t really on battles. It was more about diplomacy and finding ways not to fight. Sure, there were a lot of cool battles, but the point was never to advance the plot through it. Hell, they even make you feel sorry for a few of the antagonists since at least half of them weren’t really evil. I had a lot of fun with this and I hope you will as well.
The OVA is not included, as there will be another one of those and should be uploaded separately. The subtitles are from Erai.
