Mushoku Tensei is an anime adaptation of a novel series which released in 2012. While the novel and manga series are written by Rifujin na Magonote, the anime is written and directed by Manabu Okamoto.
For now, season 2 has not been officially confirmed but rumours are going around that it is in production. Popular leak and rumour site ‘Sugoi Lite’ posted on their Twitter on 5th May 2021, to say that seasons 2 & 3 are in production. No official sources have confirmed this at that time.
The story follows 28-year-old unemployed virgin, Rudeus Greyrat, as he silently wishes for his life to change through one of three options:
- Getting a girlfriend
- Reaching magic level 100
- Becoming rich
However, when all hope seems lost, his grandfather suddenly appears before him with two children in tow-Shirley and Zenith and proposes that Rudeus take them in as family. The series is still currently airing, with 12 episodes out so far. It’s unknown when the 13th episode will air, but it’ll most likely be soon since there is only two chapters in the manga that focus on Rudeus’ childhood which weren’t animated or covered by the anime yet.
At the end of part 2 it is revealed that Roxy had been successfully recruited as a spy for Sylphiette. Upon going out shopping one day, they found themselves being escorted by Eris who felt obliged due to Rudy’s involvement in his rehabilitation training. He then gave them an offer of employment at the Vannes guard which the two accepted immediately before handing over some documents concerning Leazas’ upgrade of their military forces after seeing first hand how powerful they are compared to their own army. Eris then warned them to keep what they know confidential as well as to not let Sylphiette know who had actually delivered the documents.
Natsuya Semikawa recently made a surprise appearance at the ‘Fantasia Bunko Big Thanks Festival’ event on 13th April 2021. During his Q&A segment, he announced that season 2 of Mushoku Tensei is in production, according to this tweet from Sugoi Lite.
It has been 7 years since the last episode of Mushoku Tensei was posted. It is back to normal, with no signs of season 2 being in production or an update about it. The series creator/author Rifujin na Magonote has released a new light novel which takes place before the anime & manga starts called ‘Mushoku Tensei – Isekai Ittara Honki Dasu’ (Which means “Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation”), but that doesn’t really have anything to do with the anime & manga.
It is speculated that season 2 will start at some point within 2020-21 if there are enough requests for it this year. The anime was aired between April 3, 2016 and June 19, 2016. The first season consisted of 13 episodes; it had more than 1 million views within the first week of airing.
The second season is far from getting released, it is not even sure if they are working on it now. No one aware when it will be “officially” announced but for now all we can do is to wait patiently. That being said, there are rumors that they are already working on it so it might happen soon.
What is the plot of season 2?
The upcoming series part two will pick up where season 11 left off. A new engine, Luke, will be introduced while old ones like Percy and Toby will be reintroduced. Other than this, there is no information out yet on what to expect in this next installment of Thomas & Friends. We can only hope more episodes would be produced with better CGI, storyline and good lessons that children could learn from. Fans can also look forward to new characters such as Emily, a female steam engine who works on the Main Line, and Whiff, a deodorant-shaped tank engine who smells bad due to working at the smelters’ yards.
As we all know, Rudeus’ father is reborn with a body of a demon and his mother’s soul in season 2. Before anything else can happen though, he must find out who he is and what happened to him.
Secrets in upcoming season 2
The preview for episode 12 shows Vanir crying when talking about the death of Aisha and Loli (and Nasir). This implies that their 3 loyal servants will be dead at some point in this story. They will probably perish either during the fight against Gisu or in return for saving their master.
It seems like we’ll see more of Gisu’s antics such as him hiding among the knights and deceiving people, hopefully we’ll get more scenes of him torturing people too. It’s also possible that we might see a human Eris in the future, though it may only be her hair since Rudeus stated that she had red hair when they first met.
I’m expecting some decent fights from the 3 demons from season 1. People would like to see Aisha and Loli fight a dragon or a hydra with Will-o’-wisp and Fireball while Roxy is fighting with Sylphid. This will probably happen during their encounter with Gisu in episode 12 or 13.
Predicted end of season 2
When it comes to the remaining season 2 episodes, It is difficult to predict what will happen next because there are many options. In episode 13, Rudeus will probably get his body back and thus get his ability to sense magic back.
