The moment you’ve been waiting for is here! Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation Season 2 Part 2 will air on April 7. A teaser video also came out, where Rudeus says he wants to marry Sylphiette.
They also showed a key image of the couple and Rudeus’ sisters:
The video’s description says that Ryousuke Shibuya will direct the new part. He directed The Reincarnation of the Strongest Exorcist in Another World before. This is the third director change for the Mushoku Tensei anime. Shingo Fujii from Onimai directed Season 1. Hiroki Hirano, the assistant director of Season 1, directed the first part of Season 2. The other staff members are the same. They include series writer Toshiya Oono, character designers Sanae Shimada and Yoshiko Saitou (from Kubo Won’t Let Me Be Invisible), art director Masakazu Miyake, and music composer Yoshiaki Fujisawa.
The first part of Season 2 aired from July 2 (or July 3 at midnight JST) in Japan. Crunchyroll, Muse Asia, and Bilibili streamed it online. Studio Bind produced the anime. It is based on the isekai light novel series by Rifujin na Magonote and Shirotaka. MF Books published the series. It started in 2014 and ended in November 2022 with 26 volumes. Seven Seas summarizes the books like this:
Kicked out by his family and wandering the streets, an unemployed 34-year-old shut-in thinks he’s hit rock-bottom—just as he’s hit and killed by a speeding truck! Awakening to find himself reborn as an infant in a world of swords and sorcery, but with the memories of his first life intact, Rudeus Greyrat is determined not to repeat his past mistakes. He’s going to make the most of this reincarnation as he sets off on the adventure of a second lifetime!
