But even the minimal experience points from slimes will add up after hundreds of years, and Azusa discovers that she accidentally reached the maximum level! Fearing that her strong abilities will attract work and force her back to a life of overexertion, she decides to hide her strength in order to preserve her peaceful lifestyle. Despite her efforts, tales of the max level “Witch of the Plateau” spread across the land, and a proud dragon named Raika shows up looking to test their strength against her. Even though Azusa defeats and befriends Raika, problems arise as both friends and foes come looking for the secluded witch.”
I love how this is coming out right after TenSura‘s second season ended…was this intentional? Well regardless, the premise of the story itself is already pretty interesting, an Isekai about an ex-corporate slave who now strives to live a “slow and easy” life! Let’s dive in!
What better way to live your slow and easy life than in the highlands where you’re surround by nature and the vast open space! The backgrounds of 300-slime are simple but have picturesque moment that keeps the setting fresh and breath taking.
Taking a closer look at the artwork, I have to say that I’m really impressed with the architecture of the show. The detail in the design of the buildings are nice and lets applaud the animation studio for really knocking the perspectives out of the park! You may have noticed that the characters themselves are as refined which can be distracting but the backgrounds help immensely by filling the screen with more detail!
Dialogue-wise the show is really fun to watch, even if the jokes are predictable tropes. Pair these fun conversation with Yuuki Aoi’s high-level voice acting prowess and BAM you get interacts that’ll having you giggling the whole episode! And while the show does revolve around Azusa and the comedic value in the “minor inconveniences” that interrupt her slow life, the story does set aside some time for sentimental moments especially when Azusa catches someone working harder than they need to! It’s a nice balance of both fun and heart warming.
Speaking of Azusa Aizawa, I can’t get over her design! It’s just too good! From her carefree personality, to her facial reactions, along with Yuuki Aoi’s voice…it’s just a great combination and I can’t get enough! I’m excited to see how far the story will go to push Azusa, so that we can see just how strong she really is because who doesn’t like testing the waters?!
And of course, Azusa isn’t the only character that we’ll be seeing a lot of! There are a handful of other characters that will eventually join Azusa and her slow life but I guess we’ll just have to keep watching to find out when!
Now don’t walk into this one thinking that it’s about the great artwork! The artwork and animation are mediocre at best (except the architecture because those are nice!). The story and character development takes priority in these types of shows, I expect we’ll start to see Azusa try just a little bit harder for those that she cares about. It’ll be a light hearted adventure that’ll give you warm fuzzy feeling by the end!
