Kadokawa opened an official website for the Mushoku Tensei: Isekai Ittara Honki Dasu (Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation) anime series on Friday, revealing the main staff, the first key visual (pictured), and a teaser promotional video. The television anime adapting Rifujin na Magonote's adventure fantasy light novel will premiere in 2020.

Manabu Okamoto (Gamers!, Akame ga Kill! episode director) is directing the anime series at Studio Bind. Kazutaka Sugiyama (The iDOLM@STER Cinderella Girls design works, Darling in the FranXX animation director) is designing the characters. Egg Firm is credited for production.

Rifujin na Magonote penned the novel on the Shousetsuka ni Narou website between November 2012 and April 2015. Kadokawa began printing the series with illustrations by Sirotaka through its MF Books label in January 2014. The 22nd volume shipped on July 25.

Yuka Fujikawa launched a manga adaptation in Comic Flapper magazine in May 2014. Kadokawa will publish the 11th volume on October 23.

i heard this is the best and most popular Isekai out there and also started the Isekai trend

but why MAL says its still publishing though? i thought the Light Novel already ended years ago

and i might check this out since high chance it will be a complete anime adaptation

lol i doubt the animation would be anything near that movie animation quality preview, its just an pre-made animated preview and not part of any actual TV episode im almost sure

The teaser seems to cover all the childhood arc, and it is impossible to cover all that in 13 eps.

I see a lot of hand drawn monsters (no 3DCG) and fights... maybe we are getting split cours.

So soon... I've only read the first LN volume so far.
I hope Seven Seas will translate all volumes that will be adapted before it will air...

best story = best adaptation treatment

My favorite isekai along with Re:zero. Can't Imagine if it's airing in the same time with Re:zero s2 .

The web novel ended, not the light novel. The web novel was on Shosetsuka ni Narou, a site where anyone can put novels and anyone can read for free, so he was an amateur writer until he was picked by a publisher to publish his story in a oficial way as a LN, which is almost ending.

The PV was good, but ... damn! I'm really afraid this anime will end in bad way like other isekai genre anime. I really love the LN, my favorite isekai LN beside Re:Zero and NGNL... please God make this anime as good as the LN.

Not big differences. Like the other web novels, it's not major.

Hahaha! Impossible. Seven Seas plans to release the translation of volume 6 on 7/7/2020. How many volumes do we have so far? 22 volumes.

Well, I do hope that the anime adaptation will make the staff of Seven Seas consider prioritizing its translation.

True, but the anime may not adapt all 22 volumes. Perhaps it will be adaptation of just the first 5-6 volumes (Not that I could know)

I was very afraid about how the adaptation would look like... but this looks freaking amazing. If they can keep up this production value throughout the series and do a good job at scripting and implementing the story this might become absolutely awesome. The shield hero got some really nice treatment and it did wonders to it's quality and popularity. And I consider at the very least the first arc of shield hero to be mostly cheap hate bait, sorry. Now imagine that quality with a story like this where each of the characters has more depth and progression than your usual animes whole cast combined.

I really like how much care the visuals of the world have got. I always loved the traveling part of MT with our adventurer trio and it seems that the makers saw the charm that traveling the world YoungIndianaJones-style can have.

Oh and yeah, since I doubt they will get ever beyond the Begarrit continent arc nobody can complain about any harem elements (though they were handled with way more care than in any anime/LN/comic I"ve known).

fanboying over.

I didn't really know what to expect seeing this is the studio's first anime and all. And the director also, this is his second project as the series director. But judging from the teaser alone, it looks pretty amazing. If they can keep this quality up, I can see this becoming something to remember.
They call certain methods of fighting good and others evil,
acting as if there were some nobility to the battlefield.
Such illusions, perpetrated by heroes throughout history,
have led countless young men to their bloody deaths,
all for the sake of this valor and glory.

This was a big surprise to me, especially since I read the manga before this announcement. Though I'm only hyped for Roxy (main reason why I picked up the manga, she's a cutie).
