The ongoing second season of Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation will be 25 episodes of two cour.
The upcoming release will span from this July to September as part of the Summer 2023 anime season. Then the season will go on a break and finish up in the Spring 2024 anime season from April to June.
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.
