If you have read some of my previous articles, then you might know that I called Re:Zero the best isekai anime of all time. However, now there is another isekai masterwork that could turn out to be just as good, if not better. Revered by many as a classic in the world of isekai, the anime version of Mushoku Tensei got relatively famous after only a few episodes.

Today, I’m going to give you guys my honest review of the series by taking a closer look at all of its amazing aspects.

Plot & Story Progression

The plot of Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation follows the story of a 34-year-old NEET, who was living an extremely miserable life. One day, the man decides to do something heroic for a change and ends up losing his very life. When he opens his eyes again, he finds himself in the hands of a beautiful young girl. This man has now been reincarnated in another world as a baby!

His name is Rudeus Greyrat, and he has been given a second chance at life. We follow the adventures of young Rudeus as he slowly bonds with all of the new people around him and embarks on many exciting but deadly adventures.

In all honesty, the plot of this anime does not seem interesting at all! I mean, we’ve seen something similar to this in the isekai genre many times now. However, Mushoku Tensei still manages to attract thousands of fans because of its awesome story progression and world-building. The story of Mushoku Tensei just keeps on getting more and more intense with every new episode as Rudeus meets all kinds of friends and foes in this fantasy world.

Animation

While the story progression is one of its strong points, the animation quality is what really makes Mushoku Tensei stand out. Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation is one of the most beautifully animated isekai anime of all time! The art style of this anime isn’t really unique, but the show still manages to captivate us with its beautifully drawn backgrounds, well-choreographed fight scenes and awesome character designs.

Characters

The characters in Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation are interesting and dynamic. These characters go through a lot of character development as the story progresses as they learn from their mistakes. Let us take a closer look at some of these characters:

Rudeus Greyrat:

Rudeus Greyrat is our little protagonist in the series, who is actually a 34-year-old perverted man in the body of a young boy. In a way, we can say that the entire story just revolves around Rudeus’ development as a character. We see Rudeus trying to forget his horrible past life as he tries his best to not make the same mistakes in this one. While he does seem like an annoying and perverted young boy at first, Rudeus truly cares about all of his friends.

Eris Boreas Greyrat:

Eris is the childish and hot-tempered cousin of Rudeus, who becomes his student. She learns all kinds of things from him and eventually starts to accept him as a close friend. Eris’ character development in the 11 episodes is quite simple yet beautiful. The girl learns to slowly accept the people around her thanks to Rudeus’ efforts.

Conclusion

Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation is not something that every anime fan can find enjoyable; however, it is something that every isekai fan will find highly entertaining. You will find some cliché isekai tropes in this anime, but it is still a must-watch show because of the brilliant execution.
