There is a time in a man’s life when he must evolve. The 39-year-old virgin, Satoru Mikami with the dodgy internet history was going to get another shot at life. I would like to say that this is another typical isekai anime but it’s not…….. this is probably the best isekai I’ve ever seen. Satoru was going out for lunch with his kohai and then boom, he got stabbed and died. Just your typical Isekai plot, nothing to see here.
We then hear a strange voiceover that we would know and love as the great sage. Great sage is a skill that our friend Satoru gained as he was dying, and later becomes one of the most loyal and the most grateful asset. Satoru gets reincarnated into a cave unable to see anything. He then moves around and discovers his first ability, which was predator. This ability gave him 4 other effects such as analysis, mimicry, storage and isolation. Satoru is essentially able to absorb living and non-living items, analyze the properties and replicate or create useful items or skills. This basic ability is the foundation in which he grows into one of the strongest demon lord in the anime.
Little did Satoru know, this cave had a big bad dragon with a dry sense of humour that was sealed in there. The dragon was well……lonely and hadn’t had much interaction with anyone in the past 600 years. This dragon was Veldora storm dragon one of the most feared creatures in the anime and is socially awkward as hell. He has been sealed for so long that he was running out of magicules to survive. Satoru and Valdora decided to give each other names. Veldora Tempest and Rimuru Tempest, the best buddies for 4 eva will now be established.
Rimuru being unable to break the imprisonment, used predator to swallow Veldora whole to analyze the shield from inside his body while Veldora did the same but from the inside out. Rimuru now sets out to the outside world to find answers about this world. This world turned out to be full of monsters such as dwarves, goblins, orcs and lizards. You name it they have it. But it’s ok, they all speak English so it’s easy to understand them.
There isn’t really much to do once you’re in this RPG type of world, that is to level up as much as you can! Rimuru first runs into a bunch of goblins that were really weak and decides to make them into his friends. Next, they get attacked by a bunch of wolves, and turn them into pets. Attacked by a bunch of orcs, makes the one with the biggest boobs into his bitch lol. I can therefore conclude that Rimuru is the god of big tiddies.
As usual, becoming a demon lord wasn’t an easy task. However, Rimuru had the help of his friends to help him achieve his goals. Yes, he did screw up every now and then, to the point that Shion got killed and he had to go through the whole resurrection process but hey, that’s water under the bridge right? Not to mention the entire process of getting to demon lord status and that scene where Rimuru massacred off 10,000 people just to save some big titties. My man.
Rimuru has made very strong allies along the way, including Millim, Veldora, and a bunch of other powerful allies. Rimuru’s ability is to turn his foes into friends and by the end of this whole anime, he’ll eventually become a harem king lol. Anyway, I would highly recommend watching this anime if you like something nice and simple to understand, but if you’re looking for something complex and mind-blowing, go watch death note or something lol.
