Equipped with magic, young Ryoma undertakes a carefree existence in the forest, leisurely learning more about his new abilities and surroundings.

Small spoilers! ------------------------------ This manga is your typical Isekai manga, a man died and was 'reborn' into a world full of magic. Despite this, the manga distinguishes itself from typical in many different ways. First, the story. Though simple in concept, it continues to be entertaining throughout the chapters. It's basically just a man is reborn as a child and meets people while trying to enjoy life, HOWEVER, from this point on it becomes different than the 'typical' isekai manga. While, theoretically the mc is op, the manga handles it well instead of being your typical uninteresting 'mc can kill everything'. The characters themselves are entirely enjoyable, it's lovely to see a manga handle both the reactions and feelings of characters with care, unlike many out there. The characters are each unique and have their ups and downs. The mc is often treated as a part of their family, which is completely wholesome to me.  The mc himself is a very interesting character, the way the manga handles him feels as if he is real and allows the reader to connect to him more then the average mc. While op, the mc's sole interest is to enjoy the new world, while studying slimes of course. He himself has had a bad past, something that strikes me as strangley unique in mangas, while it is not a rare situation for the mc to be in, it often doesn't affect their interactions or thoughts towards others. Our mc here is influenced by his past both emotionally and mentally. His personality is lovely, a complete change from your typical badass mc (even though they are amazing too), honestly he is a cinammon roll from the very start. The art, story and characters makes this an interesting read, well worth your time if it's the type of manga you like. I would recommend it if you are at all interested in fantasy or soft manga. (By this I mean not fast paced and action packed.) It holds your attention and interest purely based on the characters and their development, with the occasional monster fight of course. In my personal view, the best part of this is mc's infatuation with slimes. All of the slimes are adorable and so unique to what other mangas often portray them as. Along with this, the mc's reactions to the slimes is simply adorable.  The manga is a light-hearted type of manga, perfect for people who are either looking for something more relaxed, just getting into iskeai type mangas or even if it's one of your first manga! With that said, i'll end my review here. Hope you enjoy the manga if you decide to read it!
