Theme song artist revealed along with new key visual and Funimation streaming plans
New updates are here for the Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation TV anime, which adapts the light novel series by Rifujin na Magonote. The latest includes a cast addition, the reveal of the theme song artist, a new key visual, and plans for a January 10 premiere in Japan.
Voicing protagonist Rudeus Grayrat before he was reincarnated in another world is none other than Tomokazu Sugita (Gintoki in Gintama, Kohei Nikaido in Golden Kamuy). Yukio Ohara is on the opening and ending theme songs, pulling producing, writing, scoring, and singing duties on both.

Just when an unemployed thirty-four-year-old otaku reaches a dead end in life and decides that it’s time to turn over a new leaf—he gets run over by a truck and dies! Shockingly, he finds himself reborn into an infant’s body in a strange new world of swords and magic.
His new identity is Rudeus Grayrat, but he still retains the memories of his previous life. Follow Rudeus from infancy to adulthood, as he struggles to redeem himself in a wondrous yet dangerous world.
