‘Mushoku Tensei: Isekai Ittara Honki Dasu’ or ‘Jobless Reincarnation: I Will Seriously Try If I Go To Another World’ is another isekai anime series which will be blessing us this year.
The series might be able to bring back the charm of the fallen ‘isekai’ genre, all thanks to its realistic and mesmerizing characters engulfed in a rich narrative tale.
Throughout the article, we will discuss various facets of the show ranging from its release date, the storyline, about the author, and other interesting things.
1. Release Date and Announcement
The announcement of the anime series came back in October 2019 and was set to release in 2020, most probably in Fall 2020 only, but it recently got delayed, and the release date shifted to January 11, 2021.
The article provides you every information regarding the upcoming isekai anime series like what you can expect from it, all the key visuals and trailers, cast and staff, and much more.
2. Theory Section
It’s not every day that a good isekai gets released. The genre has been drowning in shame because of the overuse of ecchi and harem elements to cater to the fanbase.
However, Jobless Reincarnation is a story told with a refreshing narrative and keeps you glued to the storyline not because of the fanservice but due to the exciting stories and characters.
(a) Financial Standings
The novels ranked at #8 on the 2019 Kono Light Novel ga Sugoi! tankōbon list. The novels and manga have a combined print total of 2.2 million copies in Japan as of October 2018.
On Syosetu’s rankings, the web novel made cumulative appearances as the most famous work on the website.
The light novels have appeared on Oricon’s charts and have also ranked on T-site’s novel popularity polls.
(b) About the Studio
The production of the fantasy anime series will be handled by a new studio known as ‘Studio Bind,’ a subsidiary of the renowned studio ‘White Fox,’ known for animating ‘Re: Zero’ and ‘Steins Gate.’
(c) What can you expect?
Nowadays, iskeai are being only about blatantly pandering the fetishes of fans and attracting them through more ecchi and harem aspects, but Jobless Reincarnation isn’t the same.
It’s a rich narrative told in a different atmosphere with the same setting as that of any other iskeai, the magical elements seem quite good, and the fleshed-out characters only makes it more interesting.
With some compelling backstories and thrilling fights with negligible ecchi, the series, if done well, can turn out to be one of the most riveting and sensational iskeai out there.
(d) About Rifujin na Magonote
Rifujin na Magonote is the writer of Mushoku Tensei: Isekai Ittara Honki Dasu. Not much is known about the man; he likes to keep a distance from people.
He has been publishing new manga volumes consistently with the help of Yuka Fujikawa, so one can infer that he’s in good health. Currently, the duo is working on the thirteenth volume of the manga series.
(e) Production Update
As of the last update, Studio Bind, Egg Firm, or any other production company related to Jobless Reincarnation hasn’t posted or announced any new information apart from the news of the delay in the anime series.
3. Key Visual
This is the new key visual featuring the main characters of the series; it was updated after the news of the anime series getting delayed was announced on the official website.
The previous visual featured the four main characters of the isekai show – Rudeus, Roxy, Sylphiette, and Ellis.
We are shown several snippets; all depicting about the chaos in the world, magical adventures, introduction of the main characters, and the excellent cinematography resonating with every frame of the trailer.
Studio Bind was explicitly made for the production of this isekai anime series, and it is done so well; details are overflowing, and the fluidity is fantastic.
Kudos to the voice actors too, from the looks of it, the anime has some serious potential.
5. The Storyline
A 34-year-old NEET dies while saving a stranger from a traffic accident and takes rebirth in the world of magic as a newborn baby named Rudeus Greyrat.
