Mushoku Tensei began in 2012 as a Shosetsuka ni Naro web novel written by Rifujin na Magonote. It was then published as a series of light novels by Media Factory from January 24, 2014 to November 25, 2022, featuring new illustrations by Shirotaka. A total of 26 volumes were released.

The light novels inspired a manga adaptation by Yuka Fujikawa in 2014, as well as multiple spin-off series. A spin-off collection of short stories titled Mushoku Tensei: Redundant Reincarnation was launched in June 2023.

Seven Seas Entertainment releases the light novels and manga adaptation in English. It describes the light novel 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!
