What’s it about? Rudeus appears to be a precocious child to his parents Paul and Zenith, but that’s only because he’s actually a 34-year-old shut-in from Japan on the inside. Spending his early childhood under the care of former adventurers, Rudy learns he has a penchant for magic and his parents hire Roxy to tutor him at home.
At first glance, Jobless Reincarnation seems like it’s got potential among the gamut isekai. It comes from newly formed Studio Bind, a joint venture of White Fox and production company Egg Firm, giving it some solid foundations for Okamoto Manabu, who’s previously directed Gamers! The show looks flashy, the effects are solid and production quality are pretty good, if a little by the numbers for what a “high quality isekai anime” should feel like (well, at least Myth & Roid didn’t do the OP).
But then you get to know Rudy.
Rudy was a horny loser in his previous life. Shut in for 20 years, a virgin and totally socially inept, Rudy’s only claim to fame might be that he read thousands of books in his previous life (all of them light novels): and he makes sure to tell you he’s definitely this 30-something loser at every possible opportunity. Though thankfully not mentioned in the anime, he is also a self-admitted lolicon in the light novel, and a voyeur in the original web novel available online. The dude is absolutely gross.
