In case you are not familiar with Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation, the story begins with a 34-year-old NEET who is kicked out and subsequently killed by the old reliable isekai trope, Truck-kun, while attempting to save someone’s life. He is reborn in a different world as Rudeus Greyrat. Having kept the memories of his previous life, he decides to not waste this new one and vows to live his life to the fullest. His past experiences, maturity and his aptitude for magic make Rudeus a genius in the eyes of his parents as well as his future friends and comrades.
For those of us that are already familiar with Rudeus and his adventures, this anime can’t come a moment too soon. Yes, it is an isekai and there have been plenty of those but this -I can’t stress this enough- is one of the good ones. Judging from this promotional video, the cast and the staff involved with this project, Mushoku Tensei will be up there with Re:Zero kara Hajimeru Isekai Seikatsu and Tensei shitara Slime Datta Ken in terms of production value and popularity.
