What did the trailer for Mushoku Tensei Season 2 reveal?
What is the series about?
Mushoku Tensei narrates the story of Rudeus, a former Japanese shut-in that was kicked out of his home by his parents. While wandering the streets, he saves a girl from being hit by a bus, but he is killed in her place.
After the horrific accident, he woke up in the body of a baby in what appeared to be rural Europe at the time. Rudeus lives a normal life without incidents until he hurts himself by watching his new father train with a sword.
After his new mother finds him and cures him with a spell, our protagonist is shocked by the revelation that this new world he got reincarnated in is filled with magic and wonder. He would later go on to try magic for himself, learning that he was born a magical prodigy.
After being left alone at the end of Season 1, it appears we will see our hero looking for his loyal companion Eris after a brief time skip. Eris decided to leave Rudeus behind since she was in love with him and thought of herself as a burden to our hero.
What can we infer from the trailer for Mushoku Tensei Season 2?
We will get to see an older Rudeus this time around, as he looks more mature in the trailer and his voice sounds older. Now that he does not have his oldest friends and companions by his side, Rudeus will have to deal with the world on his own.
Fans of the light novels know that Rudeus will be entering Ranoa Magic Academy in Mushoku Tensei Season 2. Here, he will reconnect with old friends he once thought were lost, like Sylphiette, as well as new and interesting characters that fans of the series will love.
Like last time, it appears this new season will cover six volumes of the light novel, meaning fans will have plenty of new episodes from this amazing series. We will be sure to let you know more about this exciting news as more information is revealed.
