Mushoku Tensei Synopsis: Jobless Reincarnation
Despite being bullied, despised, and oppressed his entire life, a thirty-four-year-old hikikomori still found the determination to try something heroic, only to have it end in a tragic accident. But in a twist of fate, he awakens in another world as Rudeus Greyrat, beginning a new life as a baby born to two loving parents.
Preserving his memories and knowledge of his previous life, Rudeus quickly adapts to his new surroundings. With the mind of an older adult, he begins to display a magical talent that exceeds all expectations, honing his skill with the help of a magician named Roxy Migurdia. Rudeus learns to use the sword with his father, Paul, and meets Sylphiette, a girl his age who quickly becomes best friends with him. When Rudeus’s second chance at life begins, he tries to make the most of his new chance while conquering his traumatic past. And maybe, one day, he can find the one thing he couldn’t find in his old world: love.
