300 Years Killing Slimes Episode 1: The Witch and The Dragon

At long last we are here. The premiere of the last of the hype Light Novel anime adaptations. Let’s see what we’re in store for.

Note: I have not read the source and, as always, request people who have refrain from spoiling anything throughout my coverage. For an “Anime vs Source” weekly coverage check out Rory‘s.

We began with an introduction to how our heroine, Azusa, got “isekai’d”. She’s a workaholic in her past life, spending most of her adult life in an office. One day, she collapsed and died. I’ll give the show credit, no “Truck of Doom” this time. In purgatory or wherever isekai leads meet the god/goddess of the world, she granted Azusa whatever life she chose because the goddess was pretty much gay. Azusa wanted a chill life as an immortal. The goddess granted her an immortal “forever 17” body in the image of “her type”.

The goddess was into long haired blondes with blue eyes and a “standard” chest size.

Azusa was reincarnated in a chill countryside village. She got acquainted with her new body, clothes and home. On her way to the village she faced her first slime. After beating it she took the gems to the guild, village and more. Thus began her chill life enjoying the calmness while also taking out slimes for cash as there were no other enemies around. This went on for 300 years.

Azusa, not interested in becoming an Adventurer, only joined 300 years ago to gain money from gems Slimes dropped. 300 years later when she’s asked to check her stats after all that time here’s what they saw. Azusa requested the receptionist not tell anyone about her great power. Obviously her secret would get leaked one way or another, though it wasn’t the receptionist’s fault. By the way, she became the village doctor thanks to her high intelligence and knowledge of medicinal herbs.

Similar to other isekai I covered I won’t go into great detail discussing battles and the like because “If you’ve seen one OP protagonist isekai fight scene, you’ve seen them all”. I’m not here for the action is what I’m saying.

All readers need to know is the word of Azusa’s power reached a red dragon named Laika. She boasted being the strongest in the region and challenged Azusa. She refused but when Laika threatened to rampage she was like “Let’s get this over with”. Azusa’s Ice Beam was stronger than Laika’s Fire Blast.

Azusa’s attack froze Laika’s mouth. As she struggled to free her mouth she accidentally destroyed Azusa’s house. Our heroine didn’t like that, demanding Laika repair it. The villagers were grateful to Azusa for beating the terror and she took advantage of their kindness, in an appreciative way of course. The next day she received a surprise visit.

Laika had returned, only this time as a beautiful young lady. She promised to return with her treasures and repair Azusa’s house. Her main reason for returning though was to become Azusa’s pupil. She tried to tell her her training was nothing special but Laika insisted. When she offered to cook and clean for her Azusa couldn’t resist.

Laika showed off her impressive carpenter skills and was prepared to pull an all-nighter as the sun set. In a nice moment with an equally nice touch Azusa just looked at Laika and stopped her. We didn’t get a brief flashback of Azusa’s past life, she just saw Laika ready to work longer and said “The sun set. That means time to rest. No need to overdo it, Gotta take good care of yourself, hear?”. Laika was smitten. Once the house was finished Azusa’s praise further touched Laika.

I likey what I see and am eager for more, of the chill stuff of course.

Azusa charmed a goddess, village mayor (I think)’s daughter and a dragon. Noice.

    Not going to spoil anything in this comment, but I have read 2 volumes of the novel.

    If it’s done right, I think this will be a better experience than the novels. I only read two volumes at all (and I only even bought the 2nd for free shipping) because reading this material makes it just kinda dull. I felt like I was missing out on most of the appeal without sound and visuals because it’s kind of an isekai cgdct and the writing alone isn’t strong enough to carry it far. It’s reminiscent of Kuma Kuma Kuma Bear in that sense, and I liked the anime of that a lot despite being completely bored by the books.

    Hoping for the best.

    Some funny coincidences, Aoi Yuuki also voice another Isekai character that is the magical spider serie
    And Asuza could beat that other slime serie.

    Azusa grinded for 300 years to reach max stats, I no longer have an excuse to slack 😀
    In Granblue Fantasy “Slimeblasting” refers to levelling via fighting the slime quest over and over and seeing Azusa level up in such a way really made amused.
    She’s really living the chill life, having no care in the world! I can’t help but be envious at times, who doesn’t want to live like that?
    but she does deserve it after working non stop.
    I really like what Azusa says to Laila, if you really cant take it anymore it’s good to say no, too.

    Based gay goddess.

    “standard” chest size.

    It did look pretty modest to me. It’s not big, I not like miss receptionist, but it by no means struck me as “flat” like Azusa said, so idk where she got that idea.

    Now Laika, otoh, is definitely flat. She is also an adorable dragon wife and I wish her and Azusa a happy marriage.

    Azusa is getting good at befriending people by beating them up. Laika and Azusa might make a good pairing, Still, I wonder who else will challenge Azusa and ruin her ideal life of living a carefree life.

    So, an office lady (in this case a former one) gets her own gay dragon maid? Sounds familiar. Not a bad thing, of course. BTW, Kobayashi-sans’s shorts begun airing.

    I feel like I’ve said it in so many places today XD, but anyway, this is just a really chill SoL. There are no real stakes, and there’s no reason to get stressed out about anything. That’s one thing I really like about the LNs, it’s easy to read them whenever, and stop whenever.

    Great start and loving the character design. I’m really looking forward to watching the comfy life of an OP witch and her cute dragon girlfriend.

    That poor house it stood for 300 years only to be stepped on by a dragon.

    That goddess… I can imagine that between short sessions of work, she’s ravishing an entire heavenful of delectable blonde girls ^^

    Cutie Laika looks like she has a serious crush on Azusa now. Lovely.

    This was really cute.
    Seeing Laika’s true form was a surprise but she’s cuter that way anyway.

    I really like the scene when Azusa stopped Laika from overworking herself. It was so cute.

    I finally got into a new series from the beginning. For an isekai, this is nice and light.

    I also like that Azusa is genuinely nice and does for others when she can.

    That goddess is aces. You get a new house, awesome magic and your own dragon maid. Where do I sign up?
