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.

Just a heads up, Mushoku Tensei is extremely divisive and deals with pretty uncomfortable subjects so if you don't like that stuff you likely won't enjoy it.

Right off the bat I'll say Mushoku Tensei has an incredibly detailed world, one where I often found myself wanting characters to keep info dumping about a subject to each other and got mad when they stopped.

Mixed Feelings
This review intends to help people figure out if this story is for them or give people who finished the series a new angle to view the story. All I can offer is my opinion, but I will try my best to back up what is said in this review. My claim regarding this series is as follows: Mushoku Tensei is a wonderfully humanistic story that somewhat falls apart past a certain point due to the scale of the story, and while it is broadly worthwhile to read, it is reasonable to hold the position that it is also immature with certain themes.

Note: *No plot ...

Mushoku Tensei, the beloved 'crème de la crème' of light novels, written by Rifujin na Magonote. The story revolves around a 34-year-old Japanese ugly fat paedophile NEET pathetic loser who was run over by a speeding truck and dies.
