After our middle-aged protagonist dies, his random dying thoughts lead to him being reborn as a "slime," a blob of sentient ooze that's typically the weakest monster you'd find in a video game RPG. Thanks to some clever use of his slime abilities, and a bit of luck, Rimoru's able to explore the world around him, make some friends, and even find himself becoming a monster hero of sorts!
The greatest strength of this novel, to me, was the humor and mostly light-hearted tone. Rimoru's determined to make the most of his new existence, and he's a cheerful, fun character to follow. There's some good comedy around the characters he befriends, and the varying reactions to his jello-like body can be pretty funny. The way Rimoru's able to utilize his abilities is interesting as well, though it does veer into "over-powered hero" territory. I didn't mind it so much here, as the story seems to be going in a kingdom-building direction, where we can expect some earnest threats to the main cast.
As for weaknesses; the secondary plot weaved through the main narrative, about an Earth girl who was also brought to this world, was quite different in tone, being more dark and tragic in nature. Her and Rimoru's story connect near the end of the volume, but these storylines felt so disconnected that i wondered what the point was of giving us her backstory. In my honest opinion, the manga adaptation ties their stories together more effectively. I recommend picking the manga as well, as companion reading to the novels.
"Slime" is an amusing take on the increasingly popular "isekai" genre. Nothing groundbreaking or genre-defining here, but if you want a fun, inoffensive, and light-hearted romp, you'll get one here.
