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.

It is a true masterpiece without contenders, and I must admit that my opinion may be slightly biased.

Disclaimer: Before I start with the review, I would like to assure the readers that I am not another reviewer who would judge a story’s worth based on how comfortable I am with its content or voice out hate if such content does not align with my views. Reviews for this story tend to be dichotomous: it either goes along the lines of “MUSHOKU TENSEI IS DISGUSTING AND ANYONE WHO ENJOYS IT IS WORSE THAN SCUM,” or the contrary that goes along the lines of “MUSHOKU TENSEI IS A DEEP AND MEANINGFUL NARRATIVE AND ALL OF YOU HATE IT BECAUSE YA’LL ARE SENSITIVE SNOWFLAKES.” I’d ...

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. He then embarks on a second chance in a fantastical world replete with magic and swords. You can't get more generic isekai than this.

Undoubtedly, Mushoku Tensei bears a significant influence on the trope of reincarnation into another world, emblematic of the isekai subgenre. The novel even contributes to the proliferation of the well-worn 'reincarnation via truck-kun' cliché, thereby augmenting the saturation of ...
