Mushoku Tensei Season 2 Main Trailer Released, Anime Premieres on July 2


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
Haruka Shiraishi as Sara
• Yuu Kobayashi as Suzanne
 Wataru Hatano as Timothy
• Chiharu Sawashiro as Mimir
 Itaru Yamamoto as Patris
Kousuke Toriumi as Soldat Heckler
Ai Kayano as Fitz

Mushoku Tensei first began in 2012 as a Shousetsuka ni Narou web novel. The light novels have inspired a manga adaptation and multiple spin-offs. The first season of the show ran from 2020 to 2021 with two split cours.

Melvyn originally wanted to write about video games, and he did so for a few years, starting from his college days. He still writes about video games sometimes, but now focuses on anime-related news content and the occasional review. Some of his free time is spent self-learning Japanese, both out of interest in the language and because English-translated light novels and manga are expensive. Every anime season, Melvyn looks forward to discovering new standout episodes and OP/ED animation sequences, as well as learning about the storyboard artists and directors behind them.
