The second cour of Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation’s second season will premiere in April 2024, and, no, it isn’t too early to plug it. In fact, there was an online broadcast program for the anime, and among the people taking part were Rudeus’s voice actor Yumi Uchiyama and Sylphie’s voice actress Ai Kayano. In addition to having the actors involved, the program used the opportunity to unveil this teaser image of Rudeus and Sylphie.

The Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation TV anime is being made at Studio Bind. The person writing the season’s scripts is Toshiya Ono. The new cour will last until June.

The anime is available for streaming in America on Crunchyroll. Crunchyroll gave this description of its plot:

When a 34-year-old underachiever gets run over by a truck, his story doesn’t end there. Reincarnated in a new world as an infant, Rudy will seize every opportunity to live the life he’s always wanted. Armed with new friends, some freshly acquired magical abilities, and the courage to do the things he’s always dreamed of, he’s embarking on an epic adventure—with all of his past experience intact!

Director Manabu Okamoto previously said this about his first impressions on the original light novels: “It had a lot of vulgar and uncomfortable parts, but ultimately I thought it was a first-rate story. . . the protagonist is finally able to acknowledge who he was in his previous life, but to put it in words would reduce his entire reincarnated life to that one thing. It’s because that story took the form of an online novel, a hallowed ground that the hand of a commercial editor could not reach, that it was able to depict a single person’s life with so much richness. By the time I read it, it already had a lot of fans, so I felt more pressure to create an anime that could do justice to the story for their sake.”
