Humble Bundle has another Kodansha bundle up with the main manga, a slime diaries one, and some spinoff about him working in an office as a slime. There are a few other series in it too.

The manga has a narrative. It's all 4koma, but each chapter is part of the same theme, but different POV's if that makes sense. The Christmas Chapter for instance was them prepping as well as the event itself with each 4koma being a different prep moment, reaction, etc., if that makes sense. I'd say check it out and see for yourself on websites.


Yeah, I tried a couple issues and was just hopping it morphed down the line. 4koma just isn't my thing.

That office one is hilarious since it's Corporate Fat Bastard Veldora. Everyone is working as office drones yet are still entirely in character.

Yeah sorry man. This one's strictly 4koma.

Forgot to mention, but you may want to give Trinity a try since that's regular format.

Yeah, I was hopping that they would use trinity to expand the series instead of diaries. At least have them show up as bit characters.

Funny thing is, the characters from Trinity manga show frequently as background characters as well as references to some events from one or the other.

I really liked Trinity's take on the Falmas invasion too. Really made it feel like more than the tragedy of Shion, Gobta's buddy, and some mooks.

Same. There was something just more hurtful in seeing it play out like that as well as Foss's reaction since she looked and felt so ashamed about breaking the "Do not hurt humans" rule and have be all for nothing in the end.
