The second season performed way better than the first one on the official charts. A lot of the episodes ranked well on all of the charts. Stating the official airing on October 2, 2018, and three years later, the anime went on to bid farewell to fans on September 21, 2021. The Slime Diaries was also released during the same duration.

But finally, on November 9, 2022, the third season, That Time I Got Reincarnated As A Slime Season 3, was announced by the creators. Moreover, other details of this were also released along with this. You will find the updates in the subheads ahead.
The studio continues to be one of the best showmakers of recent times. The studio is a very recent company that started in 2008. It has created some of the most amazing shows in the past. But TenSura continues to be one of the most well-known and well-earning shows for the production house. So, starting in 2011, the company has a history of creating more than twenty-eight shows. And there are films in addition to this as well.
A maximum of two to three shows are lined up per year. And for 2023, Synduality Noir and Shy have already been listed by the company.

A lot of the threads are still talking about the movie more than the plot of the new anime. The major concern for the fans is the availability of the source material. The manga is not far up ahead for an entire season of 24 episodes. Right now, only some of the plot of the Tempest Festival has played out in manga. But the light novel has a whole lot of content to feed the anime as it works on That Time I Got Reincarnated As A Slime Season 3.
It is also saddening that it will take the plot an entire year to come back. A lot of the viewers are starting re-watch sessions as they have already forgotten about the events that have played out in the story. However, Fuse and the TenSura manga team have spoiled the fans by providing them with the latest content every now and then. That is why they are not missing much of TenSura these days.
Manga Compared To Anime
Slime chapters are some of the most extensive storylines of recent times. Created by Fuse, the original isekai novel series first came out in February 2013. In October 2015, the text completed the course. The light novel series then came out in May 2014. So far, there are 22 volumes of the text. The manga by Taiki Kawakami then began serialized on March 26, 2015. Only six volumes have come out so far. And then, the anime series by Eight Bit Studio came out in 2018.
There are a total of 45 episodes and a few OVA in this series. So, the first season of 25 episodes used only the first 52 chapters of the manga. After this, the second season uses some random chapters from the story. In fact, there have been many skips and bits from the story. Thus, it turned out to be more of a compilation than that of an adaptation. The second cour of Season 2 uses only until the 74th chapter. So far, there are more than 120 chapters in the manga.
This means that there is still more than enough content for the show to bring back That Time I Got Reincarnated As A Slime Season 3. Even though there is still some content left, the story can be adapted from the light novels that exist. Most of the story also exists in novel series.
