There he gradually gets to know the advantages of a life as slime until the future finally has something bigger in store for him.
After he kept his promise to Shizu in season 1 , it is time to return to Tempest – and it is high time that the kingdom of Farmus is after the monster nation! The slime ruler may face hard times, because Milim Nava, Rimuru’s good friend, is not forging such friendly plans either.
