Tensura set out to turn its shades from bright to grey in season 2. The first season drew in a light-hearted comedy series about a happy-go-lucky slime. But, the second season made its point, laying down the many notions for us to see it otherwise. Things are getting serious, and there are many more elements of surprise still waiting. The first cour of That Time I Got Reincarnated As A Slime ended in Winter. It promised to return in July with a second cour and finally, Tensura Season 2 second cour release date has been announced. The anime has been rising to the expectations of the viewers. Even if after a long wait, fans are happy to see the series return.
Certain new details like the trailer and a new cast have been dropped too. The announcement was made at a live-streaming event in Japan. Later it was made public through Twitter. Tensura has been following the source material wholeheartedly so far. The manga and the light novel have sold 25 million copies to date in print and digitally. Undoubtedly, the series has succeeded fairly. Even the transition from its comedic routine to a relatively darker phase was smooth and well-blended. Having won over the fans so far, the upcoming season looks promising.
Here’s a quick recap of season one along with all the new updated details of the series. Tensura has entered another interesting arc. The wait is long, but since Tensura Season 2 second cour release date has been announced, fans can finally rejoice over the happy announcement.
The Story So Far
That Time I Got Reincarnated As A Slime season 2 (cour 1) dealt with a major event. This was the evolution of Rimuru Tempest into a Demon Lord. Being a Demon Lord, Rimuru’s every skill was revamped. He performed the most powerful magic of resurrection and brought Shion and everyone else back to life. Rimuru also summoned the Primordial Black and named him Diablo. At last, he finally freed Veldora Tempest, fulfilling the very purpose he set out to complete at the very beginning of the series.
Everything seems to be going well, but at the end of the first cour, a battle breaks down between Demon Lord Carrion against Demon Lords Milim and Frey. Also, it has been revealed that the culprit for the uprising of this war is Lord Clayman. The first cour loosely states the purpose and the antagonist of the upcoming cour. However, what is Clayman’s plan? Why is Milim teaming up with him? Is Lord Carrion dead? And above all, how will Rimuru overcome this situation? The only way to catch up with the answers is by streaming the second cour of That Time I Got Reincarnated As A Slime Season 2.

Tensura Season 2 Second Cour Trailer
Shortly after the release date was announced, the first trailer of the second cour was released as well.
The first thing worth noticing in the trailer is its brilliant animation. 8bit seems to be going all out this season, especially after the positive feedback from fans all over the globe. The first highlight of the trailer is on “The Puppet Master Demon Lord”, obviously signifying Lord Clayman. Rimuru is going to settle the matter, and we might witness a great war of Demon Lords. He will be teaming up with Gazel Dwargo, the king of Dwargon, and Elalude Grimwald, the Archduke of the Sorcerer Dynasty.
Clayman on the other hand, seems to have a plan of his own, where he talks about his awakening. What he means by the term is going to be one good mystery to unravel. Yet, he seems unhappy with some turn of events as well for reasons unknown.
Milim on the other hand, is preparing for a war, which is quite an interesting turn because it contradicts her personality.
Another highlight of the trailer was the event of Walpurgis. Walpurgis is a catastrophic event that is invoked through a banquet between the Demon Lords. This banquet is held for the declaration of war among them. Ramiris announces that Walpurgis has been invoked and Tempest is going to be destroyed.
Many returning characters can be seen like Diablo and Veldora. Leon Cromwell makes an appearance too. But, the most exciting appearance is of a new character, Guy Crimson before the trailer ends.
With so many details to discover, waiting for the next core has become even more amusing.
