Story writer Rifujin na Magonote announced via his Twitter account that an anime adaptation for his Mushoku Tensei: Isekai Ittara Honki Dasu light novel series has been decided. More information will be revealed later.

Synopsis
Killed while saving a stranger from a traffic collision, a 34-year-old NEET is reincarnated into a world of magic as Rudeus Greyrat, a newborn baby. With knowledge, experience, and regrets from his previous life retained, Rudeus vows to lead a fulfilling life and not repeat his past mistakes.

Now gifted with a tremendous amount of magical power as well as the mind of a grown adult, Rudeus is seen as a genius in the making by his new parents. Soon, he finds himself studying under powerful warriors, such as his swordsman father and a mage named Roxy Migurdia—all in order to hone his apparent talents. But despite his innocent exterior, Rudeus is still a perverted otaku, who uses his wealth of knowledge to make moves on women whom he could never make in his previous life. [Written by MAL Rewrite]

Rifujin na Magonote wrote the light novel series via Shousetsuka ni Narou website from November 2012 to April 2015. Kadokawa has released the light novel series under the Media Factory imprint with art by Sirotaka since January 2014, and 20 volumes have been released as of January 25. It made repeated appearances on the site's rankings as the most popular work during its serialization. A manga version, drawn by Yuka Fujikawa, has been serialized via Comic Flapper magazine since the June 2014 issue. MF Comic Flapper series imprint will release the 10th compiled volume on March 23. The Roxy spin-off manga series, drawn by Shouko Iwami, started its serialization via ComicWalker in December 2017, and two physical volumes have been released as of last September. Kadokawa also released a 4-koma manga of the series via Comic Dengeki Daiouji since last October. A drama CD was released last April, featuring Hiro Shimono as Rudeus.

Seven Seas Entertainment is publishing the light novels in English. The first physical volume is set to ship on May 21 with an early digital release on April 4. Seven Seas Entertainment has also been publishing the manga adaptation of the novel since 2015. Its ninth volume is scheduled to be released on August 20, while the English physical volume release of the Roxy spin-off manga will debut on April 30.

Oh god. There's a lot I disliked about Mushoku Tensei, but even more that I loved. I can only pray this is going to be a good adaption. While it definitely contains the usual power fantasy, unlike the usual trash it does go beyond that and tells a very good story.

Let's see how many will be in the hyped side and how many will be in the 'another isekai thrash again' side.

Never manage to read the big name like this or Spider and Slime even back in my LN spree day. Just cannot muster enough some will to read those.

Slime didn't manage to make me read LN since with each episode it lost most of the novelty and I don't think this too will manage to make me read it considering a lot of talk that it progressively get worst latter. Still gonna watch it though.

OK, but I will not be excited, until I see the studio, the cast and the length of episodes because this will depend a lot on how they adapt, since it will be very difficult for them to do it well considering how long the introduction to the story, it would be very bad that they will skip their childhood, the way he tried to get where he is, all this in order to go to action and fights. already grown, with his harem already formed.

i heard so many good things about this serie

too bad it's a harem ...
skip


It will be a harem, but he took years to get his harem (only 3 girls should clarify) unlike the rest of harem where girls fall in love with the protagonist in a couple of hours or days just because he saved their lives, Rudeus instead work for it in many ways and showed affection towards them.

Oh Yes

I was waiting for almost 5 years in the hope to see one of my favourite series to get an anime adaptation and Now, my hope did come true

One of the best isekai is finally getting an anime adaptation

I agree there must be a reason why it got really good critique and scores considering it being a harem and isekai.

Starts good, but turns trash later... I'll still watch it though, like Tate no Yuusha.

This was probably one of the biggest names that has yet to get an anime and here it is. I'm guessing it'll get the Shield Hero treatment to get a 2 cour adaptation. Worse case scenario would be the Death March route with 1 cour. Either way, this show would need far more than 2 cour but I doubt that would happen.

This really looks like it has a similar formula to an anime that is coming out this April (Kenja no Mago). Will be watching this one as well! Didn't know about it until now, but it seems it's pretty popular.

So the number 1 overhyped garbo isekai finally gets an anime. Can't wait for purists to cry how the adaption "ruined things" when we all know it was always trash to begin with.

Mod Edit: Removed baiting.

Can't believe this is actually happening.
If Mushoku Tensei will be adapted throughoutfully it will break grounds.
Can't wait to see and hear Rudeus

I think therefore I am.

Lol, the synopsis sounds like a mix of Knight’s and Magic & Tensei Shitara Slime Datte Ken.

But I’m looking forward to this nevertheless, thanks to the posts above which reveals some great news! Here’s to hoping it gets a good adaption too!

Read some of the manga adaptation and its pretty boring. Wouldn't call it "bad" but it's kinda creepy the way the wish-fulfillment parts are shown. This will not be anything groundbreaking but no doubt this will be gobbled up pretty easily.

Loads of people actually requested.....this? Seriously? The premise isn't even unique unlike even the worst isekai LNs that get adapted.

Ugh, reading through the comments and I've already lost the energy to explain things. MT's strong points don't lie in some gimmick like a smart-phone, mechs, goblin slaying or a gender-bender. Great characterization, complex characters, character interactions, their inner thought processes and the theme of family going on through out the entirety of a long story (all things making it more than just a wish fulfillment fantasy) aren't easy to adapt into a I-don't-know-how-many-cour-anime. Anyway fuck it. I've read MT on narou, it was fun, that's enough for me. Hope it sells.

The kid (33 y/o fat self inserft virgin) with less than 10 years with king level magic and a pedophiliac harem... Nice.
I wonder if the doujinshis of this will show him as a fat 33 y/o raping little kids or they'll use his isekai form.

I know that drawings and fiction arent real but this is literally pedophilia...
I never lie on the internet. What's the point of it...
the chinese noodles ad is an anime and avatar isn't!

You do not seem to be understanding the intent of these stories? he is no longer a fat neet of 30 years, the reborn and is already a totally different person, the plot goes as he changes and develops as a good person

With a pedophiliac harem and the mind of a 33 y/o?
Also lusting after his family members, or everything that walks by.
What a good person.

If its a totally different person its not an isekai and the 33 y/o doesnt exist anymore.
But we see him lusting after his "aunt" and "mom" so yeah he still exists.

I would say something about this isekai is better and different from the others, but knowing how everyone has reacted positively with tate yuusha, it seems that people prefer a thousand times an anime of forced victimization and villains who bullying the protagonist instead of a slow, but consistent and coherent development.
Like certain people here who do not know how to think @Atavistic

Because the synopsis sounds terrible. I've read it and know that it's better than the usual stuff, but if I hadn't and only read this summary, I would never even consider watching this.

it's good for the fans, many have been asking for that adaptation for long long years of nothingness, so congratz.

As for me, i'll take the Honzuki no gekokujou anime announcement we got one week ago over this one any day ;3

I was impressed by the first paragraph under "Synopsis", a bit interested, if nothing.

Then comes the end lines of next paragraph and then i'm thinking...." This will make an excellent shota hentai anime."

LOL

I wonder what first time viewers reactions will be to seeing his form before being reborn, or rather how they'll go on about portraying him in the anime and if it'll affect viewer opinion on him throughout the show, especially if they decide to keep on showing us him during some of his inner monologue sequences. Feels like it could easily become another target for controversy.

"But despite his innocent exterior, Rudeus is still a perverted otaku, who uses his wealth of knowledge to make moves on women whom he could never make in his previous life" Sounded interesting until this part.
Probably not gonna watch it.
