Isekai has grown in popularity in the anime world over the last few years. Anime fans have been fascinated by shows like “Konosuba,” “Re:Zero,” and “Sword Art Online,” which have given them a taste for stories about establishing a new life in a beautiful fantasy world. Few anime are considered as highly as “Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation,” as influential as it is.
While “Jobless Reincarnation” (written by author Rifujin na Magonote) was not the first Isekai web novel, it was one of the most influential, according to Anime News Network. It is mostly responsible for popularising the protagonist’s death and subsequent reincarnation as the genre’s starting point. Shows like “Konosuba” and “That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime” swiftly adopted the reincarnation concept after “Jobless Reincarnation” became one of the most popular “Nar” stories.
Despite this, “Jobless Reincarnation” was the last popular Isekai to be adapted into an anime. The reasons for this are numerous, but they no longer matter. What matters is that “Jobless Reincarnation” was adapted at some point. Fans are eager to discover what happens next in the life of Rudeus Greyrat, an adult Japanese shut-in who is reincarnated in the fantasy world of his fantasies, now that the first season is over. Season 2 is, thankfully, on the way, and here’s what we know thus far.
Jobless Reincarnation Season 2 Release Date
Those familiar with “Jobless Reincarnation” may be perplexed as to why “Jobless Reincarnation” and other anime frequently have 13-episode seasons, only to gain a second half-month afterwards. This is because, in addition to seasons, Japanese television shows frequently air on a different time scheme known as “cours.”
As a result, “Jobless Reincarnation” Season 1 is still officially ongoing, and we’re just waiting for the next instalment. It is, thankfully, not far away. The makers confirmed that the show “would return for its second cour in July 2021” in a Tweet made by the official “Mushoku Tensei” page in March.
Fans of the English dub will be disappointed to learn that the tale is not as hopeful. Despite the fact that the first season’s final episode aired in March 2021, Funimation has only published 9 of the show’s 11 episodes. It’s likely that fans of the Dub will have to view Cour 2 of “Jobless Reincarnation” in instalments.
Jobless Reincarnation Cast
So far, “Jobless Reincarnation” features a solid cast of voice actors to back up its powerful characters. The cast has done an incredible job of bringing the characters of “Job Reincarnation” to life, complementing Studio Bind’s animation. Fortunately, the same voice work can be heard throughout the rest of the series.
Yumi Uchiyama, a Japanese actor, and Madeline Morris, a Western actress, are the voices behind Rudeus (via Behind The Voice Actors). Roxy (Konomi Kohara/Michelle Rojas), Eris (Ai Kakuma/Lindsay Seidel), and Ruijerd (Daisuke Namikawa/Christopher Wehkamp) are among the cast members.
Of course, by the end of the “Jobless Reincarnation” series, new characters will have appeared, which means new voice actors will have joined the ensemble. At this time, there have been no formal announcements regarding additional cast additions. Before finding out who they’ll hear next in “Jobless Reincarnation,” fans will have to wait until Cour 2 and beyond.

What is going to happen next?
Rudeus, who has been stuck in the Demon Continent with his elder cousin/student, Eris, received a moral lesson in the final episode of the first cour of “Jobless Reincarnation.” So far, having an adult mind housed in a child’s body has worked in his favour.
However, he becomes overconfident, and his ambitions to achieve money and fame by travelling go awry. He’s also had trouble working with Ruijerd, his newest party member, whose straightforward demeanour and strong moral compass run counter to Rudeus’ intentions. However, the two men are able to mend their differences and continue to work together to achieve their objectives.

Meanwhile, Roxy, Rudeus’ magic teacher, has discovered that he is stranded on the demon continent. She, too, is a demon, and she joins forces with some of Rudeus’ parents’ former adventure partners to rescue her pupil. Furthermore, no one knows who is to blame for the supernatural occurrence that brought them there. We only know Rudy isn’t the only one who has been relocated.
The mystery surrounding the anomaly, as well as whether Roxy will meet up with Rudeus, are two lingering questions that “Jobless Reincarnation” will most likely address as the second season progresses. Ghislaine’s whereabouts could possibly be addressed in the show. Because the anime has only adapted three of the original novel’s 25 volumes, fans should expect to see a lot more of “Jobless Reincarnation.”
