What is the story about?
An anonymous 34-year-old Japanese NEET was kicked out of the house after his parents died. After some self-reflection, he concluded that his life was ultimately meaningless. He intercepted a speeding truck driving towards a group of teenagers, tried to do something meaningful once in his life, and managed to rescue one of them before he died. After waking up in the baby’s body, he realized that he was reincarnated into a world of swords and magic. He decided to succeed in his new life and gave up his past identity for his new life as Rudeus Greyrat. Due to genetic affinity and early training, Ludius became very good at magic. During his childhood, he became a student of the demon magician Roxie Migueldia, a friend of the demon Hilfite, and a magic teacher of the noble heiress Eris Burris Grelart .
When Ludius finally felt that he had found his place in the world, a huge magical disaster destroyed his country, transporting hundreds of thousands of people and staying away from home, some of them were in danger. Places or circumstances that led to their deaths were due to murder, war , Execution, monster attack or exposure to the element. Almost trapped in a foreign country on the other side of the world, Rudius decided to escort Eris home.
With the help of a strong warrior named Rejad Subadiah, whom he got acquainted before. During his journey of thousands of miles, Rudeus made contact with a mysterious and unreliable person, who called himself a human god, and he provided suspicious advice to an unknown agenda. After three years of fighting, including being defeated by an incredibly powerful world-class warrior named Osted, Ludius successfully escorted Eris back home to her broken land. Political events and personal misunderstandings with Eris left Rudius heartbroken.
Two years later, the events of Eris left Ludius powerless. Under the suggestion of the god of humanity, he was admitted to the Ronoah Magic University. There, he reunited with Sylphiette, who had cured his impotence, and they soon married. Rudius ignored the advice of gods and men and rejoined his father’s ranks to save his mother. He met Roxy on the adventure and developed a romantic relationship, and married her as his second wife. He was then visited by a future dying version of himself, warning others that God would cause the death of everyone he loved. To appease the human god, Ludius pretended to attempt to kill Orsted, one of the human god’s enemies, but Ludius showed allegiance to Orsted in exchange for his family’s protection. Soon after, Rudius married Eris as his third wife.
The series continues with a series of stories based on the collaboration between Rudeus and Orsted to ensure the precise disappearance of Human-God, as well as his daily life and his growing family. After the failure of a large-scale attack on Rudius’s life, the gods abandoned their plan and decided to plan for Rudius’s descendants. Rudeus spent the rest of his life in peace before dying naturally at the age of 74.
Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Incarnation Manga
In 2014, the comic version of “Mushoku Tensei” illustrated by Fujikawa Yuka was published. However, unlike light novels, the manga are still in progress.
So far, 14 volumes have been published, 11 of which have been published in English. For comic fans, we have good news, because volume 16 will be released in English in just one week on July 6, 2021.
The exact number of comics has not yet been announced, but given that many comics have more than 20 volumes, a total of 24 books, like light novels, it is a specious number. At least, since the light novel has been completed, which means that all source materials are available, we can be sure that the remaining comic volumes will be followed up in due course. Of course, the second season seems to have a lot of material.
