Animated by Revoroot with Nobukage Kimura serving as the director working off series composition by Tatsuya Takahashi and character designs by Keisuke Goto, I've Been Killing Slimes for 300 Years and Maxed Out My Level is another one of my favorite series from this season.
In this fantasy comedy isekai anime series, the main character is a Japanese office worker who dies at the tender age of 27 due to overwork. When she gets to the afterlife, she meets a sympathetic goddess who allows her to be reborn in another world in the body of an immortal and eternally youthful female witch. Now, Azusa lives a quiet life in the mountains who makes medicine for the local villagers, and occasionally kills some slimes in order to bring in some income.
Life is pretty awesome for her for the next 300 years until she learns that all those slimes have caused her to max out her level. Once word gets out about that, Azusa must deal with adventurers and a dragon, all of which want to test themselves against the powerful witch.
The good news is that as of April 12th, 2021, it has been made official I've Been Killing Slimes for 300 Years and Maxed Out My Level will get an English dub on Crunchyroll. The only issue is that we do not know when the English dub will premiere. Stay tuned for updates as they become available.
As I’ve said time and time again so far this season, I absolutely loved this first episode. It was cute, charming, and funny, which is a wonderful combo to enjoy in these dark and trying times we live in.
It’s difficult to pin down what I liked best about this series, but I’m sure that after a few more episodes I’ll be able to put my finger on it much more easily. Huzzah to I've Been Killing Slimes for 300 Years and Maxed Out My Level, and I hope it continues to be as utterly charming and captivating as the premiere was.
