This article provides everything that is known about the That Time I Got Reincarnated As A Slime movie (Tensei Shitara Slime Datta Ken movie/Tensura movie) and all related news. As such, this article will be updated over time with news, rumors, and analysis. Meanwhile, let’s delve down into what is known for certain.

Tensei Shitara Slime Datta Ken movie release date predictions

As of the last update, Kodansha, Studio 8bit, or any company related to the production of the anime has not officially confirmed the exact That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime movie release date. However, it’s been confirmed that the TenSura movie release date will be in Fall 2022.

Once the news is officially confirmed this article will be updated with the relevant information.

In the meantime, it’s impossible to speculate about when the Tensei Shitara Slime Datta Ken movie release date will occur in the future.

Typically, the anime industry considers Fall to be the months of October, November, and December, whereas the Winter is January, February, and March. November-December and May-July are typically considered the best timing for a tentpole film to have a chance at being a blockbuster premiere whereas January and February are considered the “dump months” for bad movies.

Thus, the That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime movie release date in Japan will be scheduled for either November or December 2022.

That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime movie USA release date likely in early 2023

The international release with a That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime movie English dub will be planned out to optimize its chances in U.S. theaters and other countries like the UK, Canada, and more.

This time the calculations are bit more difficult since the anime production committee and the company which buys the international rights will want to avoid competing with a big-name American movie that’ll overshadow the That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime movie in early 2023.

For example, the Dragon Ball Super: Broly movie premiered in Japan in mid-December 2018, whereas the U.S. release date by FUNimation was mid-January 2019. Despite being considered a dump month, Broly set box office records for an anime movie.

Similarly, the Demon Slayer movie USA release date was positioned in April 2021. Setting it slightly ahead of the May blockbusters is probably the wisest move, although the timing was largely forced by COVID-19 restrictions and the re-opening of American theaters.

Based on the same logic, the That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime movie USA release date will either be timed to be soon after the Japanese premiere or timed for optimal exposure against the competition. Therefore, the Tensei Shitara Slime Datta Ken movie U.S. release date is predicted to be either January or May 2023.
