Yen Press has launched a notable new manga series with the debut of That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime, Vol. 1: The Ways of the Monster Nation. The new manga series is a spin-off from the That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime light novel, which has been one of Yen’s most successful literary releases.
The new series by Fuse, author of the original That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime light novel, features artwork by Sho Okagiri and Mitz Vah.
Yen Press describes the manga as follows:
With all its innovations, the kingdom of Tempest-founded by the demon lord Rimuru-is a veritable paradise for travelers such as Framea, the rabbitfolk chief’s daughter. Framea has always had a nose for adventure, an inquisitive mind, and a knack for discovering and identifying the latest and greatest the world has to offer! Her notepad is open at all times, ready for any three-star delights she may encounter, so when Rimuru himself gives Framea a mission to catalog the area’s attractions, she will have her work cut out for her-and tons of stars to hand out!
An anime adaptation of the series premiered in October 2018, catapulting the popularity of the series to international attention and currently streams on Crunchyroll and Funimation. A second season of the anime series was recently announced and is scheduled to premiere later this year.
Volume 1 is available now in print and digitally on Yen Press partner platforms.
