In Mushoku Tensei, also known as Jobless Reincarnation we follow a nameless, unemployed man in his mid-30s as he dies in a car crash and is reincarnated in the Six-Faced world, where magic is real and inherent in every inhabitant. But there's a twist; unlike many other reincarnation stories, our main character retains all memories of his previous life.
To the outside world, he might be just a gifted child called Rudeus, but he still has the consciousness of an adult man, determined to live without regret this time around. Given that the anime follows a boy protagonist as he masters magic and learns more about his world, Mushoku Tensei would lean towards the shōnen category, although it has some more mature elements.
Mushoku Tensei is based on Rifujin na Magonote's light novel of the same name and it's the first work of Studio Bind.
Episode 5, titled “A Young Lady and Violence” was released to premium Funimation users just yesterday, the 7th of February. If you're already impatient for Episode 6, here’s everything you need to know:
Episode 5, titled “A Young Lady and Violence” marks a new season in Rudeus' life. Rudy learns that he is not to return to his family's house for the next five years, as his father, Paul, thinks he and Sylphiette have become too co-dependent. Ghislaine escorts Rudy to the house of his father's cousin, Philip Greyrat.
Rudy is asked to tutor Philip's daughter, Eris, but she initially dislikes him, until both of them are kidnapped and have to work together to escape. After many misadventures, Eris finally trusts Rudy and accepts him as her tutor.
