Mushoku Tensei Season 2 Was…

September 10, 2023

Key takeaways from Mushoku Tensei Season 2 review:

  • Season 2 shifts its focus from action and plot to character development, providing a deep exploration of Rudy’s emotional journey and introducing new, well-developed characters.
  • Despite its slower pace, the season still offers significant plot developments, with episode 9, featuring the Nanhoshi incident, being a standout moment.
  • Studio Bing delivers consistent animation quality and impressive soundtracks, enhancing the overall viewing experience.

Season 2 of Mushoku Tensei was quite the journey. Yes, it was much slower than Season 1 Part 2 but the shift in tone is intentional. And I understand why it was done. Well, I say that and the next episode will have something big happen but that won’t really shift my views on this season so far.

So while the plot was slower and more deliberately paced in this season, the character development was front and center. This season didn’t have the fast-paced adventurous feel of the previous season, instead, it chose to focus more on the characters and it worked for me.

So welcome back to another one of my reviews. Today we are talking about Mushoku Tensei Season 2. So let’s get started. Also,Β spoilers for season 2 in the plot section. Only read it if you’re up to date on Season 2.Β Otherwise, simply skip that section.

Plot

So even though I said the plot was really slow in this season and character development mostly took center stage, we still had some big plot moments in this season as well. The whole scene with Nanhoshi is the biggest example of this. In that one episode, we not only learned the cause of the Teleportation incident, but we also learned that it was possible to be ‘summoned’ in that world without being reincarnated like Rudy.

Apart from the thrilling episode 9, this season has been relatively calm, focusing on Rudy’s emotional journey after Eris left and his investigation of the Teleportation incident at Ranoa Academy. While some may find the plot subdued, I find the emphasis on character development more than compensates for it.

Characters

So As I said, character development and writing are the central focus of this season. This is reflected really well in the first few episodes as Rudy is just fresh out of his ‘breakup’ with Eris It goes to show just how much he cared for her. Even the adventurers he spends little time with get some nice character development. And they all contribute somewhat to Rudy’s emotional recovery.

In this season, we are introduced to Fitz who spends a significant amount of time with Rudy, and the way their relationship is portrayed is exceptional. Their dynamic is familiar yet unique, and it all makes sense after a certain point. Additionally, we are introduced to several new side characters, such as Badigadi and Nanahoshi, who casually drops some of the biggest lore bombs in the series.

Animations

Studio Bind did fine work once again. No complaints here aside from a few minor cuts from the source material that I didn’t like. But that is nitpicking. The animations were nice and consistent. The soundtracks, especially the opening theme were great once again. Not much else to say here.

Conclusion

Here are my final scores for Mushoku Tensei Season 2:

  • Plot – 8/10
  • Characters – 10/10
  • Animations – 8/10
  • Soundtracks – 8/10
  • Enjoyment – 9/10
  • Badigadi – 10/10
  • Overall – 8.5/10

Even though the action and the plot have taken a backseat in this season, I really do appreciate the character-focused nature of it. But well those were my thoughts and opinions on Mushoku Tensei Season 2. Let me know yours in the comments, I will take my leave here. See ya!
