What will be the storyline of Mushoku Tensei Jobless Reincarnation Season 2?
Mushoku Tensei season 1 left most fans heartbroken. The journey and adventures of Dead End come to a hiatus. Initially saddening, Eris’s justification for leaving Rudeus in self-doubt and tears is acceptable from a plot point of view. This can be viewed as an opportunity for character development and the introduction of other characters, especially Sylphy, Rudeus’s childhood friend.
