@kur0g4m1 We can probably just call Rimuru he/him. He might be rocking a genderless body right now but he still has the same mind as when he was a human male. If anyone would be used to being treated like a dude, it's someone who had over 30 years of experiencing such.

Damn, when he realized what Milim has been going through, it's definitely sad that she herself is alone for 2000 years+.

Ok. I just got the latest LN Volume which is LN3 and it ends with them about to take Charybdis so the current story is pretty much caught up and HOLY SHIT is the manga incredibly good in how it matches up to the LN. The LN is much more fleshed out, but the manga is damn a perfect retelling and much more superior to the WN as it has content missing from there such as Treyni the Dryad appearing much earlier during the Orc Lord event and the entire Charybdis event which is completely absent from the WN. It also explains where Rimuru got the honey from that he used to pacify Milim and the entire Demon Lord conference between her Callion/Karion, Frey, and Clayman was also expanded showing each of their viewpoints on what's happening.

ballpark estimate, the current translation of the novel (not sure which, the one further along) is at ch.240, and is probably ... 80-100 chapters further than this? it's not a linear exchange rate.

Slimes usually are immortal creatures on fantasy stories, on the sense that they can live forever. But they're not invulnerable, far from It actually, they're famed as the "weakest" monster because they usually are very fragile.
But Rimuru got some super OP skills from "eating" Veldora, as well as a huge boost on It's overall physical capabilities and magical power from receiving a name from It. After that It only kept getting stronger from every monster It ate, specially the Orc Disaster and the Charybdis. So at this point, considering how fast It regenerates, I think that unless It picks a fight with someone MUCH stronger than It, Rimuru should be pretty much immortal. o:

Sadly not translated yet as far as LN is concerned and I'm not sure where in the WN this would fall.

@doomrider7 from ch 43 i want to read the novel , what ch should i start from ?

To answer about the lifespan question...It's pretty much indefinite. As a slime he's the weakest of mobs and I dunno about their reproduction cycles or abundance, but they generally live forever and only die due to virtue of being the weakest enemies.

Those are manga only I think. Not seen them anywhere else. Ditto for the chapter omake's.

If we talked about slime's life expectancy it shouldn't be very long if we consider them as the weakest mobs, they could die even if someone just stepped on them. But if there's no predator, they might be able to live a longer live as slime doesn't need food or water to live.

Rimuru though is a special case, he was named by Veldora, through naming Rimuru get a lot of magical power and a longer life. The proof can be seen from Rigurudo and Hakurou, as they look younger after being named. Then again, the life expectancy in this isekai is pretty long. Veldora and Milim practically have live since forever, Karion 400+ years old, Hakurou and King Gazelle more than 200/300 years old, except for Shizu (few decades? 100+ years because of Ifrit) the humans life expectancy probably the same as us. Thus, we come to conclusion that the higher magical power you have you might live longer. So, as long as Rimuru doesn't stupidly pick a fight with catastrophe level demon lord he should be able to live a few decades.

I know this is off topic but.. Where can I find Veldora's perspective on each arc? I've read it during the end of volume one or something and its really good. But now i can't find it anymore. Any ideas?

Good god, that food just screams “do not eat”... not figuratively either, like it will actually be screaming at you...

That's exploring some really greats ideas, this chapter was particularly great. I'm also glad Rimuru can start going off on an adventure by himself it's exciting.

A nice chapter as usual. It was unexpected to see Rimura contemplate on his lifespan and how he'll approach the death of his loved ones as time goes on. He's likely downright immortal or at the least won't die for thousands of years, so casually everyone he knows will eventually pass away besides Lilith. Since she was brought up though, she'll more than likely return and this plot point will be diverged into more.

It'd be nice if we went into depth on how Rimura deals with loss and how it'll effect his ability to lead a kingdom though, since he's already thinking of the day Tempest won't need his leadership. Not to mention how he'd respond to living for hundreds of years on end and having to watch everyone fade away. I hope the author doesn't cop out on this and introduce some immortality or life sharing ability..

Damn this is good.
This is how an Isekai Manga should be.
Great art, nice combat, OP MC that still has to deal with a lot of issues, good feels, great world, nice explorations, interesting characters...
I get so exited every time I see this manga in my Follows ?

Concerning the life span of a slime... Rimuru isn't really a simple slime, right? He actually has a Great Dragon residing inside of him, and that dragon was already thousands of years old.
He should be close to immortal, that's probably why some Demon Lords already pretty much consider him as an equal.

I don't read the novel, and don't want any spoils, but this chapter seems to raise a ton of bad flags. I feel like something is going to happen to some of his close friends, and damn it's already making me apprehensive.
