Jobless Reincarnation Anime DELAYED to 2021

The Isekai genre is filled with great animes like Sword art online, Log Horizon, Overlord, Konosuba, and many more. More often than not, these animes are adapted from light novels instead of mangas.

The announcement of the cast members was followed by comments from the voice actors on their website.

Yumi Uchiyama who is voicing the protagonist, Rudeus, commented:

“I am Yumi Uchiyama, who has decided to play Rudeus. I think that I

can be involved in the “unemployed reincarnation” that has been loved by many people for a long time, but I feel that I will be very firm, but I will play him with sincerity,

care, and fun as he grows facing trauma. We would like to

support you, and we look forward to your continued support!”

Yoshimi Ohara, who will play Rudeus’s Magic Teacher Roxy commented:

“I’m Yoshimi Ohara, who plays Roxy Migurdia. She looks like a girl and is an adult, so I’m really looking forward to how she will be involved in the story as she teaches Rudeus the art of magic, and I’m thrilled to be able to play her a little bit. I would like to perform as much as possible so that everyone who sees it will be pleased, so thank you!

Aris Kakuma who was chosen to voice Ellis commented:

“This time, I will be in charge of Ellis’ voice. Does Ellis have a beast inside? There is a ferocious side to the point that I think, but it shows various expressions. I hope that you can enjoy this world with everyone, hoping that you can see the cute side as it looks.

Thank you!

Finally, Ai Chino who had been chosen for the role of Sylphiet commented:

“There are many reincarnated works in the world, but I was fascinated by the bold title ‘Unemployed Reincarnation’ from the time of the audition. I haven’t been able to participate in the post-recording yet, but I’m feeling the spirit of the staff looking at the recording video that I received earlier! Especially the facial expressions and movements of the characters seem cute, and I’m looking forward to acting. I will do my best so that you can enjoy the cuteness of Sylphy even in the anime!

“The Pioneer of Narauro Ranobe”

“Unemployed Reincarnation-Get serious in a different world”
