Japanese Light Novel Series: Mushoku Tensei Season 2 Release Date, Is Series Confirmed?

Season 2 of the hit anime series Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation was officially renewed for season 2 on March 6th, according to Studio Bind.

When the second season ended in December, though, fans were eager to learn if season 2 had already been confirmed.

In March 2022, we learn that a special OVA episode will be released as part of the 4th Blu-ray DVD set on March 16th.

The news was first shared at “the pre-screening of the TV unbroadcast episode [OVA]” in Japan, according to the series’ official website.

Fans of the Mushoku Tensei anime, on the other hand, were already optimistic that the series will return to television at some point. This is due to the fact that anime renewals are often based on two factors: popularity and source material, both of which the series possesses in abundance.

Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation, an adaptation of Rifujin na Magonote‘s blockbuster series, was one of the greatest anime of 2021.

According to Anime Geek, Mushoku Tensei’s season 1 finale adapted up to volume 6 of the original light novel series, which is volume 10 in the ongoing manga adaptation.

The good news is that 25 volumes of light novels and 16 volumes of manga have been released in Japan as of this writing, which means there is still enough of source material to adapt for television!

Another advantage that Mushoku Tensei has is its popularity. While Funimation does not publish viewership figures for simulcast titles, it is clear that the series has millions of admirers around the world.

With almost 271,000 reviews on IMDB and 8.77/10 on MyAnimeList, the series presently has an 8.5/10 rating, which is normally high enough to warrant a renewal. The series has also been quite successful in Japan, where it is said to have consistently topped the weekly television ratings.

This is in addition to the season 2 teaser, which debuted at the end of episode 23 and revealed Redeus’ plans to join the University of Magic (the next story arc in the light novel series).

Surprisingly, there have been rumors floating online that the second anime season, as well as the third, could be in the works as early as May 2021.

MUSHOKU TENSEI SEASON 2 RELEASE DATE PREDICTION

The anime version of the Mushoku Tensei series was first announced in March 2019 and was set to air in 2020 before being postponed until January 2021 due to the continuing coronavirus outbreak.

The epidemic continued to wreak havoc on the show, postponing the second season’s premiere from July to October of last year.

However, this extra time on the production line, combined with SugoiLITE’s rumored return in May 2021 and the next OVA episode, suggests that work on season 2 has already begun.

Fans will likely not have to wait aeons for the hit series to return, thanks to these reasons and the availability of source material.

HITC anticipates that Mushoku Tensei season 2 will air in October 2022 as part of the Fall broadcasting calendar, or in January 2023 as part of the Winter broadcasting program, based on the production timeline from season 1.

Thankfully, there will be more Mushoku Tensei content released before season 2 returns to television.

This is because an OVA of a previously unaired episode of the anime will be released later this month.

The episode will be named “Eris’s Goblin Subjugation” and will be released in Japan on March 16th as part of the 4th Blu-ray DVD volume.

Unfortunately, no information on an international release date or an OTT streaming partner has been released. A complete breakdown of the OVA may be found here.
