I am looking for this manga where the main character lives alone as a child in the jungle and is loved by the gods who watch over him. Then he saves the lives of some important people. Later he develops slimes for different purposes.

    This is a nice description but could you take a look at this guide to see if there is anything else you could edit in? For example, when did you read this? – TheLethalCarrot Sep 13 at 12:52
  • So, given the isekai manga involve characters from another world, and this is a child in the jungle, was he transported as a child? Transformed upon arrival? – FuzzyBoots Sep 13 at 13:00

I suspect this is Kamitachi ni Hirowareta Otoko, or "The Man Picked Up by the Gods".

Cover of "The Man Picked Up by the Gods"

Ryoma Takebayashi, a 39-year-old salaryman with a hidden past, finds himself in a different realm. The gods tell him that he has died and they are sending his soul to their own world to replenish its magic source. Ryoma begins a new life reincarnated as an orphan boy, able to survive alone in the forest for 3 years. Blessed with convenient magic powers from the gods, Ryoma is finally living as his true earnest self, freed from his mundane and undermined past.

Indeed, he does farm slimes, as you can see in the image. More details are available in the reviews here, albeit in somewhat broken English.

Kamitachi ni Hirowareta Otoko (The Man Picked Up by the Gods) (2017) most likely.

From isekaiscan:

Ryouma Takuma, an overworked 39-year-old man finds himself in a strange white room. The gods tell him that he has died and they are sending his soul to a different world, a world where magic exists. Carrying over his experiences from his past life and new abilities given to him, Ryouma awakens anew as a boy and is dropped in a forest where he discovers his affinity for taming monsters and in particular, slimes! Together with his slime friends our protagonist faces living in a different world, learning more about his abilities and that there’s more than meets the eye when it comes to slimes.


Remembered from Isekai manga with a person who is reincarnated after dying by a sneeze-induced concussion, which also mentioned the "saving people" part:

until one day he helps the party of the Duke who had come to visit the forest

Looks like it might be "The Man Picked up by the Gods"

the quote on mangarock

Ryoma Takebayashi, a 39-year-old salaryman with a hidden past, finds himself in a different realm. The gods tell him that he has died and they are sending his soul to their own world to replenish its magic source. Ryoma begins a new life reincarnated as an orphan boy, able to survive alone in the forest for 3 years. Blessed with convenient magic powers from the gods, Ryoma is finally living as his true earnest self, freed from his mundane and undermined past.

Additionally, vol 1, Chapter 3 is called "the secret of slimes", and has as its first quote: "using a slime as a mirror? You can do anything, once you have a slime."
