What Is It?
The 2021 Japanese anime (animated) TV show That Time I Got Reincarnated As A Slime (Season 2).
Here is how MyAnimeList describes this anime TV show:
Taking a break from his time as a teacher, the powerful slime Rimuru Tempest returns to his kingdom, eponymously named Tempest, just in time to begin negotiations with a nearby nation—the Kingdom of Eurazania. While the negotiations are anything but peaceful, they do end successfully, allowing Rimuru to return and finish teaching. When trying to again return to Tempest, this time permanently, Rimuru is stopped by a mysterious figure who is somehow able to constrain the many magical abilities he has at his disposal.
In Tempest, the situation is even worse. A group of unknown humans has invaded the land and are assaulting its citizens, both influential and innocent. They are not just trying to bring harm either—they have the intent to kill. Can Rimuru overcome his powerful and dangerous foe and return to Tempest before it is too late?

The nation of Tempest is in a festive mood after successfully overcoming the surprise attack from the Blumund Army and the Western Holy Church. Beyond the festivities lies a meeting between Tempest and its allies to decide the future of the Nation of Monsters. The aftermath of the Blumund invasion, Milim Nava’s suspicious behavior, and the disappearance of Demon Lord Carrion—the problems seem to keep on piling up.
Rimuru Tempest, now awakened as a “True Demon Lord,” decides to go on the offensive against Clayman. With the fully revived “Storm Dragon” Veldora, “Ultimate Skill” Raphael, and other powerful comrades, the ruler of the Tempest is confident in taking down his enemies one by one until he can face the man pulling the strings.

This season did not progress as much as I had hoped, but at least it was better than the bad OVAs and / or special episodes.
This season wasted more time trying to stretch things out & it was often goofier than I like, but fortunately there were some serious moments with some good action.
This show is still doing just enough to keep me interested enough to continue watching it, but I hope that it will focus on being more serious & moving forward instead of trying to drag on in the next season.
I like this show best when the main character is working toward gaining new abilities while improving his kingdom et cetera while exploring more of the world.
