In December 2022, crunchyroll announced that the film Tensei Shitara Slime Datta Ken: Guren no Kizuna-hen (That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime: Scarlet Bond) would be released in theaters in Latin America, starting with Mexico on January 26, 2023. However, the date has passed, and the film does not appear on theater billboards.
This drew attention because there had already been signs that something was wrong when there was not even a pre-sale of tickets prior to the release of the film in theaters. So what happened? Since there was no official announcement from crunchyrollit had to be the support account”@AyudaCinepolis” the one that cleared up the doubts, and wrote:
- «Good afternoon, this content has a change in its release date, please keep an eye on our social networks», wrote the account.
So it can be said that it is confirmed that the arrival of the film of Tensei Shitara Slime Datta Ken (That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime) to theaters in Mexico has been delayed. There are many issues that could delay a release, but it could be the fact that the dubbing work could not be finished on time, which motivated the decision to delay it. We will have to wait for an official statement from crunchyroll to find out what happened behind the scenes.
You also have to remember that the promotional videos dubbed into Latin Spanish are not an indicator to know if the dubbing work is already finishedThis is because the trailers are usually the first thing that is dubbed, to promote the project. That is why for a few days there has already been an advance with dubbing, which still marked the date of January 26 in Mexico.
Finally, let’s remember that the story of this feature film is not canonical, and is described as follows:
- In Raja, a small country located to the west of Tempest. Rimuru and his companions become involved in a long conspiracy that revolves around the queen’s mysterious power. Rimuru and his commander Benimaru also meet another surviving ogre named Hiiro, a man who used to be like a brother to Benimaru.
The first season of the anime adaptation was produced by the studios 8-bitunder the direction of Yasuhito Kikuchi and scripts written by Kazuyuki Fudeyasuand premiered in October 2018. The second season was directed by atsushi nakayama and aired in two halves in January 2021 and July 2021 in Japan. A third season is already in production.
Tensei Shitara Slime Datta Ken Synopsis
Satoru Mikami, 37, is a typical company worker who is perfectly content with his monotonous lifestyle in Tokyo, apart from not having gotten a girlfriend once in his life. In the middle of a chance meeting with his colleague, he falls victim to a random mugger on the street and is stabbed. However, as he succumbs to his injuries, a peculiar voice echoes in his mind and recites a bunch of orders that the dying man can’t make sense of. When Satoru regains consciousness, he discovers that he has been reincarnated as a slime in an unknown realm. In doing so, he gains new abilities, most notably the power to devour anything and mimic his appearance and abilities.
Next, he stumbles upon the catastrophic-level sealed monster “Storm Dragon” Veldora, who has been sealed for the past 300 years for razing a city. Understanding his situation, Satoru befriends him and promises to help him destroy the seal. In return, Veldora grants him the name Rimuru Tempest to grant him divine protection. Now freed from the mundanities of his past life, Rimuru embarks on a new journey with a clear goal in mind. As he grows accustomed to his new physique, his sticky antics spread throughout the world, gradually altering his fate.
