Update: This blog has been moved to Tensei Shitara Slime datta ken Wiki:Terminology Guide, where all future updates will take place. This blog will remain here for archival/historic purposes.

This is a blog listing all differences in names of characters, skills, locations and stuff. Most people were introduced to this series through the origninal web novel and it's manga adaptation. Before Yen Press and Kodansha Comics released the series in English, many fans turn to fan-translations. As such, there are some differences in the spelling of names, skill and what not. So I decided to make this blog to compare them. Hopefully, we can use these as a standard for the wiki, especially now since the anime is kicking off.

TL;DR: This is a comparison between official translations and fan translations.

Note: Official translations of light novels are currently up to volume 3. Official translations of the manga are currently up to volume 8. This blog will be updated when new volumes are released (and therefore, new translations). The frequency of updates depends on my progress on the series.
