I’ve been Killing Slimes for 300 Years Season 2 Plotline
The season finale came to an exciting end when Azusa opened the door again. Falfa was preparing for the dance festival. Azusa, on the other hand, decided to set up a cafe. All family members support Azusa’s idea. They are ready to turn their Highlands space into a cafe. When Azusa wakes up the next day, she sees many people queuing in front of her house and realizes how successful she is in her new job. Other employees of the cafe are Beelzebub, Falfa, Pecora and Vania. Azusa decides to go to the dance festival with her family. The episode ends with Azusa asking the person standing in the doorway how she can be helpful.
None of the main characters of the anime are male. We probably won’t see one of them next season either. We can watch Azusa and her family visit Beelzebub’s house. Shalsha and Falfa will most likely go to school, but it is still possible that they will run the cafe again in the future. We can see Laika’s impressive fighting skills in a tournament. Another big visit to Halkara’s house could happen as a family. Azusa was deeply disappointed that World Tree was not a real dungeon. In this season we get the chance to see a real dungeon visit. Thanks to Azusa’s help to her friend, we will also witness an unexpected wedding. We will also be able to discover more of Azusa’s abilities next season. It will be interesting to see how Azusa handles everything in her new life.
