Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation Season 2 Confirmed!

Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation

A second season for Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation has been officially confirmed!

The second season was announced as a surprise after a preview screening of the unaired anime episode set to be included in the Blu-Ray release of the series. The announcement was a surprise for fans who watched the preview and got to hear the new early before the studio confirmed it on the anime’s official website.

Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation is based off the ongoing light novel and manga by Rifujin na Magonote; which both premiered in 2014. The series has also led to two spinoff manga series and an audio drama.

You can read a summary of the series from Seven Seas Entertainment below.

“An unemployed otaku has just reached the lowest point in his life. He wants nothing more than the ability to start over, but just as he thinks it may be possible…he gets hit by a truck and dies! Shockingly, he finds himself reborn into an infant’s body in a strange new world of swords and magic. His identity now is Rudeus Greyrat, yet he still retains the memories of his previous life. Reborn into a new family, Rudeus makes use of his past experiences to forge ahead in this fantasy world as a true prodigy, gifted with maturity beyond his years and a natural born talent for magic. With swords instead of chopsticks, and spell books instead of the internet, can Rudeus redeem himself in this wondrous yet dangerous land?”

Despite the show’s popularity (or perhaps because of it), it’s been subject to at least two instances of alleged censorship; both when it was removed from China’s streaming services, and again when a groping scene from the series was edited by Seven Seas in the English light novel.
