What is the Premise?
A Thirty something year old hikikomori get a fresh start as Rudeus Greyrat. Reincarnated as an infant he become interested in being a better person. Greatly interested in things such as magic along the way. Of course, with an adult mind he display magical talent at an age much younger then expected. Task with learning magic and the Sword from his father, Paul. It is this point that his parents higher the help of a mage to teach him name Roxy Migurdia.
Though this is just the first chapter of his new life!
What type of show is it?
A mature isekai anime. This show does have a perverted, comedy and plenty of action. Though the story is pretty strong. While a Hikikomori and avoid leaving his house in his past life we found that even when training to be a mage he avoid leaving his yard into he was force to leave. While a small detail overall, it helps in reminding us that our perverted what seem like to be overpowered “hero” isn’t without his past life.
Is it a Hidden Gem?
I myself enjoy this anime quite a bit. I do notice a lot of people are upset with just how the anime treats it’s perversion, some calling it sexiest. While others defend it saying it’s accurate of medieval timeframe. All the while the Anime will often bring it up often and many times with it ending as a joke. While it isn’t sentive for people who would be sentive to such issues it doesn’t blindside you with it as some more popular shows tend to do at key points.
Once your past the perverted bits (and I don’t mean they go away) you have a interesting world, and every frame of this anime just looks awesome. In fact, about the only thing that I find anyone is disappointed with is the perverted bits. Though some of those same people say it could had been the next Sword Art Online heh. I give the story of this anime more credit then if we remove what I find to be comical perverted bits.
Rating : A True Gem!
An Anime that seem to strike controversy, if asked to list another anime like it people seem to run down a list of Generic kid rated isekai. As I like Isekais I am force to admit that they really don’t run the same feel. Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation has a understanding of what it is and what it want to be and so far staying strong to that.
How much of it is there?
One Season(ish) is out for this show.
It seems only 11 epsiodes was planned for the first “season” but now they appear to be calling it the first Cour. Regardless there is more planned.
