Originally published on the internet web novel website Shōsetsuka ni Narō in November 2012, a year later it was announced the series would receive a print release under Media Factory's MF Books imprint with illustrations done by a Pixiv user called Shirotaka.[b] A manga adaptation by Yuka Fujikawa began serialization in the June 2014 issue of Monthly Comic Flapper while three spin-offs were also released. Seven Seas Entertainment licensed the tankōbon volumes of the manga for localization in North America. The company also has licensed the original light novels. An anime television series adaptation produced by Studio Bind aired from January to December 2021. A second season premiered in July 2023.

Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation has become a success, with its web novel published from Syosetu's rankings has made cumulative appearances as the most popular work on the website, and later expands into a franchise began in 2014. By June 2023, the franchise had over 13 million copies in circulation. Although early volumes of the light novels were the subject of controversy due to sexual themes leading to censorship and complaints, the latter chapters of the series were subject of praise for the development and handling of Rudeus' growth.

Plot Edit

An unnamed 34-year-old Japanese NEET is evicted from his home following his parents' death and skipping the funeral. Upon some self-introspection, he concluded his life was ultimately pointless but still intercepts a speeding truck heading towards a group of teenagers in an attempt to do something meaningful for once in his life and manages to pull one of them out of harm's way before dying. Awakening in a baby's body, he realizes his being reincarnated in a world of sword and sorcery and resolves to become successful in his new life, discarding his past identity for his new life as Rudeus Greyrat. Due to inherited affinity and early training, Rudeus becomes highly skilled at magic. During his childhood, he becomes a student of demon magician Roxy Migurdia, a friend to demihuman Sylphiette, and a magic teacher to noble heiress Eris Boreas Greyrat.

As Rudeus finally feels like he has found his place in the world, a major magical catastrophe destroys his nation, teleporting and stranding hundreds of thousands of people far from home‚ some into dangerous places or situations, resulting in their deaths due to murder, war, execution, monster attack, or exposure to the elements. Stranded practically on the other side of the world in a foreign land, Rudeus resolves to escort Eris home with aid by a befriended strong warrior named Ruijerd Superdia. During his thousands-of-miles-long journey, Rudeus is contacted by a mysterious being, a Human spirit, who gives him questionable advice for an unknown agenda. After three years of struggle—including being defeated by a mighty world-class warrior named Orsted—Rudeus successfully escorts Eris home to the remains of his shattered homeland. Unfortunately, political events and a personal misunderstanding with Eris ultimately leave Rudeus heartbroken.

Two years later, the incident with Eris has made Rudeus impotent, so he enrolls in Ronoa Magic University under the Human's advice. He is reunited with Sylphiette, who heals his impotence, and the two are wedded shortly after. Rudeus rejoins his father's quest to save his mother, ignoring the Human's advice, reuniting and developing a romantic relationship with Roxy during the adventure and taking her as his second wife. He is then visited by a dying future version of himself, warning him that the Human spirit will cause the deaths of everyone he cares about. To appease the Human, Rudeus attempts to kill Orsted, one of Human's enemies. However, Rudeus offers his allegiance to Orsted in exchange for his family's protection instead. Shortly after, Rudeus takes Eris as his third wife, following a reconciliation for the misunderstanding. The series continues episodically with a series of story arcs based around Rudeus' work with Orsted to ensure the Human's precise demise, as well as his daily life and growing family. Finally, after a large-scale attack on Rudeus' life fails, the Human gives up on his plans against him, opting to scheme against Rudeus's descendants instead. In the end, Rudeus lives the rest of his life peacefully before his natural death at the age of 74.

Production Edit

After graduating university in 2007, Rifujin na Magonote began submitting manuscripts to publishers, but after getting no results, he quit wanting to become an author.[3] Some years later, he was reading Kanekiru Kogitsune's Re:Monster where he learned of the web fiction website Shōsetsuka ni Narō. After reading some of the serials on the website, thinking he would not be ridiculed for his writing, he began submitting there.[3] Rifujin na Magonote said it was a little strange for the hero who had ruined his entire life because of his failure at school in his life to call the school "a place where he can fail". Rifujin na Magonote had thought that he should give such impression. However, he also wanted to depict a student who fails at school trying to have another chance at life through this series.[4][3] The setting of the work was created by adding elements of other Naro-kei works that were already popular to the story that he had wanted to write for a long time.[3] From that time on, so-called Isekai stories were popular, and the approach was "If I were you, I would do this", such as "If I'm going to be reincarnated, I should write about my childhood properly" or "Is it possible to make use of the settings before reincarnation?" The author thought about it.[3] During his youth, Rifujin was a fan of fighting games he often played in arcades. He often had regrets of leaving his hometown and facing people stronger than him. When Rifujin took up writing Mushoku Tensei he channeled that sorrow as a driving force to overcome all the difficulties while writing and to continue the story all the way till the end.[5] He revealed that he was influenced by Lucifer and the Biscuit Hammer and Parasyte, which focused on family and human relationships.[6]

Rifujin commented that he created Rudeus aware of his controversial personality. He intended Rudeus' actions would be more meaningful in the process. He had no issue criticizing Rudeus at an early stage and left it to the audience to judge him. Magonote wanted the audience to pay attention to a specific side of his character and be able to relate to him.[7] Earlier, he said that he felt a big response in episodes 6 to 7 of the web version of the novels, but that was just when Roxy took Rudeus out. Thanks to her, Rudeus overcomes the trauma. Such a story gave a warm impression to his readers and made him think, "Let's grow in this direction."[8] Rifujin stated that he wrote every chapter from his personal computer in an old fashioned way rather than modern writers. When dealing with his characters, the author struggles with giving them good actions in order to make them come across as attractive to the reader such as Rudeus' love interests or the ones with a notable backstory. Ever since the novel started, Rifujin had the overall plot elaborated. The human spirit that Rudeus interacts with and the setting the protagonist explored remained the same. The series' message involves how people should live and the possibility that everybody can make mistakes.[9]

After publishing the first parts of his work, Rifujin wrote that he intended the series to last at least a hundred chapters.[10] Due to criticism towards his work, Rifujin considered ending the series prematurely but was inspired to continue when his work reached the first place on Syosetu's daily rankings.[10][11] Originally, the story arc where Rudeus' reunites with Aisha was supposed to be completely different from the published work.[12] The author intended to have Lilia die off-screen, and Aisha to be hiding under a different identity. However, he found Lilia's death anticlimactic and decided against it; thus, he had to rewrite the story arc to make sense of her survival and lack of contact. Rifujin stated the story arc might be bizarre due to the changes but expresses no regrets in his decision; he noted Lilia's survival made him reconsider Zenith's condition in the story.[12] The climax was influenced by Re:Zero. Regarding the ending of this novel, Rifujin was thinking of writing until Rudeus died, and at the same time, writing until Rudeus turned 34 because he died at the age of 34. He also said that since the prologue is about an unemployed man who is kicked out of his house, he did not want the story to end with someone being beaten up. In addition, even if he continued the story, it would just be a repetition.[13][3]

Adaptation Edit

Director Manabu Okamoto found the novel controversial but at the same time first rate. He noticed it attracted several readers which gave him the curiosity of adapting it into an anime. However, due to the length from novels, Okamoto found it difficult to in anime format. The constant change of areas and designs also resulted in more problems. The most difficult change was Rudeus' constant growth from a toddler to teenager in the first story arcs the staff decided to make subtle rather than make time-skips. In order to characterize Rudeus properly, Okamoto decided to give him two voice actors: Tomokazu Sugita for his thoughts and Yumi Uchiyama for his dialogues. The composer Yoshiaki Fujisawa wanted to use modern background themes to fit the classic fantasy world.[14]

For the second season, Hiroki Hirano replaced Okamoto as director. He said that he aims to develop Rudeus again from a low point as the first season ends up with Rudeus falling into depression after losing all his allies. He hopes he and the development staff will properly be able to address the growth of the character.[15] Producer Nobuhiro Osawa expressed doubts about whether or not the team was sure about including more sidestories from the original series that helped in developing more Rudeus.[16]

Media Edit

Web novel and light novel Edit

Rifujin na Magonote published his work on the online web novel website, Shōsetsuka ni Narō (Shortened to Syosetu); the first chapter was uploaded on November 22, 2012.[17] In November 2013, the author announced his work was to be released as a light novel under Media Factory's MF Books imprint; regardless, the author stated his intentions to continue publishing his chapters online.[18] The illustrator for the light novel is a Pixiv user called SiroTaka.[19] Seven Seas Entertainment has licensed the light novels for publication in North America.[20] They made localization changes in their translations of the light novels, such as toning down Rudeus' perverted behavior and removing references to rape. They later decided to "re-evaluate" their localization decisions.[21]

Rifujin intends to create a sequel to the web novel series based in the Six-Sided Universe. On January 15, 2021, the author stated that he plans to finish the Orc Eroica web novel first. He also suffers from health problems and plans to heal before starting the new work.[22]

Reception Edit

Web and light novel Edit

In the Kono Light Novel ga Sugoi! 2017 by Takarajimasha, Mushoku Tensei reached the fourth place in the ranking.[79] It is ranked seventh for the 2018 edition;[80] and for the 2019 edition, the series is placed eighth.[81] On Syosetu's rankings, the web novel made cumulative appearances as the most popular work on the website.[82] The light novels have appeared on Oricon's charts and have also ranked on T-site's novel popularity polls.[83][84][85][86] By August 2021, the light novels reached 8.5 million copies in circulation.[87] By February 2022, the series had over 10 million copies in circulation.[88] By June 2023, the series had over 13 million copies in circulation.[89][90]

The main character of the series Rudeus, has been criticized for being overtly perverted.[91] Anime News Network found Rudeus hard to sympathize, as in early chapters he barely develops connections. However, the way Rudeus interacts with Roxy during his training as a mage was noted to benefit him, was the subject of praise.[92] Real Sound was concerned about how the narrative portrays Rudeus' previous life as it appears to focus highly on retired school students and issues they had at school comparing it to the famous light novel series Re:Zero − Starting Life in Another World. Nevertheless, Rudeus commitment to surpassing his flaws in his new life was noted to turn him into a more sympathetic main character.[93] Re:Zero − Starting Life in Another World novelist Tappei Nagatsuki said that one of the strongest points of Mushoku Tensei was the handling of Rudeus who is noted to suffer in a similar fashion to the main character from the visual novel Clannad.[94] Mindo Manihar Pasaribu from Institutional Repository of the University of North Sumatra notes Rudeus, who was previously a cowardly, weak, insecure character into a hard-working, strong, or fearless character who is more confident and compassionate; This makes the novels of Mushoku Tensei served as a major appeal to the audience.[95] Writer Niji Kusano from Real Sound said that the key to Mushoku Tensei's success was how deep is the success Rudeus achieved in his new life despite how common it is in Isekai stories. Another element that helps the novel outstand is the mix of realism Rudeus is often seen while being mixed with the popular high-fantasy style.[96]

Anime Edit

The anime adaptation received positive responses from both critics and audiences, having considered one of the best anime of 2021.[97] IGN gave a positive review, writing, "In a time where every type of isekai is being developed, Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation takes a joyful and wholehearted approach to the genre."[98]

At the Anime Trending Awards, the series receives 18 nominations in total, with seven wins.[99] It receives three nominations, including Best Fantasy category twice in two consecutive years, at the Crunchyroll Anime Awards.[100][101] Wiriting for the first season, Irfan Ghani Muhammad from Universitas Kiai Haji Achmad Siddiq Jember noticed Mushoku Tensei often tests Rudeus' morality from different point of views. His fears of the outside world change when Roxy starts training him and takes him through a ride across the town which changes the protagonist's point of view of how society works. The scholar mentions Roxy's character faces a similar arc due to her differences from her people.[102] HITC found the anime properly followed the novel's narrative, most importantly Rudeus' coming-of-age story, which appealed to the audience.[103] Comic Book Resources saw the focus on Rudeus' emotions as what marks the series a major departure from other isekai storylines.[104]

The early episodes of the second season earned controversial responses due to the more miserable portrayal of Rudeus while highlighting a decrease in the animation values.[105][106] Positive response focused on how more depth was given to Rudeus as he was now alone and tried interacting with new characters.[107][108]

Controversies Edit

Aisha Greyrat's after-story Edit

One of the web novel short stories from the after-story collection Dasoku-hen (Redundancy), titled "The Moment Aisha Greyrat Stopped Being a Maid", sparked a lot of controversy among its Japanese readers. In response, the author had initially planned to make some revisions, but figured it would not be good enough, and after receiving a notice from Shōsetsuka ni Narō management that it violated their terms of service, on February 24, 2016, the author announced that he had decided to scrap the short story altogether and would write a remake in the future.[109]

LexBurner's controversy Edit

On February 8, 2021, before the premiere of the fifth episode of the anime adaptation, a Chinese streaming network, Bilibili, temporarily halted the streaming of the anime on the grounds of a "technical failure." According to fan speculation, it might have been linked to the actions of the popular Chinese influencer LexBurner, who insulted the series and its fans, with one of his remarks saying that it is "for bottom-feeders in the social hierarchy." Incited by his words, his followers went to the media-reviewing website, Douban, to review-bomb the series with a 1-star rating; although the series concurrently enjoyed a 9.2/10 rating on Bilibili. This has led to LexBurner, who was one of Bilibili's top streamers, being banned from the site.[110][111] Later, author Rifujin na Magonote commented on LexBurner's actions as follows: "His words are only his personal opinion, and he is free to hold whatever views he likes. Although I am displeased at how he has insulted other viewers, anime is not made only for successful people, so I hope that those who can enjoy it will enjoy it." He further commented: "If that is the kind of online presence he is, that's just the way it is sometimes. Even in Japan, there are plenty of people like him, although they might not have his influence. As far as I am concerned, instead of engaging with him, I think it is more important to ignore him and grow your own communities. Thank you!".[111][112]
