Anime like Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation with the concept of a character reincarnated in a mysterious new world and trying to work his way up is not unique. However, Mushoku Tensei stands out because it’s done from a different prospect, alluding little towards a slice of life aspect in the beginning and later moving towards the adventure part. Mushoku Tensei is an anime that seems familiar yet tries a different angle for various plot points.
Synopsis: Thirtyfour-year-old NEET was hit by a truck while saving a stranger. As he was dying, he finds himself reincarnated into a fantasy world as a newborn baby called Rudeus Greyrat. Now Rudeus has decided to adapt to his new life in the new world while overcoming his past.
Mushoku Tensei took a generic plotline with character developing their lives, knowledge, and relationship in a fantasy world and told it refreshingly. It’s humorous at many points, dramatic at others and the way it’s done is well enough to be interesting. If you are looking for more anime with a similar theme, then look no further. Here are some anime similar to Mushoku Tensei: Isekai Ittara Honki Dasu.
