Ryoma Takebayashi is an 11-year-old boy who lives in the forest with over 1000 magical slime familiars. He finds Reinhart Jamil, a noble, and his soldiers in the forest and invites them to his home. Seeing that he obviously lives alone, they become suspicious. Ryoma claims he learned magic from his deceased grandparents. Camil, a mage, determines Ryoma has a high resistance to mental and physical pain. After they leave, Ryoma feels guilty about lying. In truth, three years prior, he was an unhappy Japanese salaryman who unexpectedly died in his sleep. In the afterlife, he met three gods, Gain, Lulutia, and Kufo, who explained their alternate Earth is running out of magic, and if they reincarnate him in their world, it will form a bridge to Ryoma's Earth, which has an abundance of magic. They give Ryoma magical abilities and allow him to keep his brute strength and resistance to mental and physical pain. Arriving in the alternate Earth as an 8-year-old boy, Ryoma met his first slime and spent three years learning about them until meeting Reinhart. Two weeks later, Ryoma is surprised when Reinhart returns with even more people, including his daughter Eliaria.

After presenting Ryoma with a gold clock for previously helping him, Reinbach reveals the Jamil family have been tamers for generations and requests Ryoma help Eliarlia tame a slime as her very first familiar. After sharing some of his slime knowledge, Eliarlia decides to tame a cleaner slime that can cleanse away impurities, filth and grime, even though it means using bath water tainted with her sweat as bait, the only definite way of attracting a cleaner slime. The Jamil family invite Ryoma to accompany them on their trip to another town, Gimul, and Ryoma accepts as he only knows the forest and is eager to explore his new world. Using item storage magic, Ryoma brings his extensive collection of possessions with him, including many valuable items he created experimenting with his slimes abilities, leading Reinbach to suspect Ryoma might have a bright future as a craftsman or even a merchant. On the journey, a rockslide blocks the path, but Ryoma solves the problem using several spells he created himself, impressing Reinhart's mages before continuing on to Gimul.

They also inform Ryoma he has gained the attention of the Gods of War and Magic and that the God of Artisans has given Ryoma his blessing. Returning to Gimul, Ryoma is advised to register at a guild so unscrupulous people are less likely to take advantage of him. Eliaria is amazed Ryoma can control his vast magic capacity so well, revealing she actually has more magic than him but with less control. At the Tamers Guild, Ryoma learns raising his rank will be difficult due to how unimpressive slimes are. Instead, he joins the Adventurers Guild where Guild Master Worgan accepts him immediately after witnessing Ryoma's warrior abilities. At the lowest rank of G, Ryoma takes his first G ranked job, to clean the home of Miya, a cat beastkin.
