During its airing, Crunchyroll will stream the season. An overall count of 25 episodes is slated for the season.

Hiroki Hirano, assistant director of Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation, has replaced Manabu Okamoto as the director for Studio Bind during the first cours. Ryōsuke Shibuya has taken the directorial reins for the second cours. Toshiya Ono, known for his work on anime such as “86,” “Gatchaman Crowds,” “Land of the Lustrous,” and “The Promised Neverland,” has replaced Okamoto as the series’ script supervisor for the upcoming season. With the addition of new character designers Sanae Shimada and Yoshiko Saitō.

Seven Seas Entertainment acquired the license for both the initial main light novel series by Rifujin na Magonote and the manga adaptation by Yuka Fujikawa. The publisher has also secured licensure for the spinoff manga “Mushoku Tensei: Roxy Gets Serious,” by Shōko Iwami. Seven Seas describes the captivating fantasy narrative of the original novels as follows:

A jobless 34-year-old man, abandoned by his family and reduced to homelessness, perceives that life has reached its lowest ebb—right before a speeding lorry strikes and kills him! He regains consciousness, born anew as a baby in an enchanting world of sorcery and swords. Nevertheless, he remembers his past life and, as Rudeus Greyrat, resolves to avoid making the same mistakes. Embarking on the expedition of a second lifetime, he aims to fully embrace this reincarnation!

Rifujin na Magonote originally serialized the narrative on the website Shōsetsuka ni Narō (Let’s Become Novelists) from 2012 until 2015. The print version, under Kadokawa‘s MF Books imprint, started publishing in 2014, with its 26th volume hitting the shelves in November 2022.

The first part of the anime adaptation of the novels made its debut in January 2021. The second part followed in October 2021, following a postponement from that July. Funimation streamed the season, with Crunchyroll and Hulu currently streaming the anime, encapsulating the unbroadcasted side-story original video anime (OVA) episode “Eris the Goblin Slayer.”
