A main trailer has been released for the upcoming second season of Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation, giving fans a peek at what Rudeus will be up to next. The video includes a look at the Counter Arrow adventurer group, teases Rudeus’ meeting with the elf Elinalise Dragonroad, and features some cuts of Silent Fitz near the end.
The trailer also previews Mushoku Tensei Season 2’s newly announced theme songs: “spiral” by LONGMAN and “Musubime” by Yuiko Oohara.
Aside from the trailer, a key visual of Rudeus with Counter Arrow member Sara was also released. Additionally, it was revealed that the anime will premiere on July 2 (effectively July 3 at 12 AM JST) in Japan.
The anime is based on the KADOKAWA-published isekai light novel series written by Rifujin na Magonote with illustrations from Shirotaka, which are published under the MF Books label. The light novels began in 2014 and ended in November 2022 with 26 volumes.
Seven Seas describes the series as:
Kicked out by his family and wandering the streets, an unemployed 34-year-old shut-in thinks he’s hit rock-bottom—just as he’s hit and killed by a speeding truck! Awakening to find himself reborn as an infant in a world of swords and sorcery, but with the memories of his first life intact, Rudeus Greyrat is determined not to repeat his past mistakes. He’s going to make the most of this reincarnation as he sets off on the adventure of a second lifetime!
Mushoku Tensei Season 2 is directed by Hiroki Hirano (Season 1 assistant director) with Toshiya Oono (Shadows House) as series composer and Sanae Shimada (Photokano) as character designer. Returning staff from the first season include Masakazu Miyake as art director and Yoshiaki Fujisawa as music composer. Studio Bind is again the production company.
Meanwhile, the cast includes:
• Yumi Uchiyama as Rudeus

• Yuu Kobayashi as Suzanne
• Wataru Hatano as Timothy
• Chiharu Sawashiro as Mimir
• Itaru Yamamoto as Patris
