Fans criticize quality of “Mushoku Tensei” sequel

Don't miss

Currently, the broadcast of the second season of “Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation” is in full swing, but in addition to a strongly criticized animation quality, the tweet of an animator now also caused concern among fans. We summarize below.

Mushoku Tensei: Continuation under criticism

If we include the pilot episode, seven episodes of the second season of “Mushoku Tensei” have already been aired in Japan, which gradually also allows a meaningful judgment about the anime. And it turns out that the fans are not at all satisfied with the quality of the animation, because it does not reach the level of the first season.

The animation of the second season is certainly not bad, but the footsteps of the first season of the popular Isekai anime were probably just so big that the differences are clearly perceived by viewers and now lead to mass criticism.

According to several fans, especially the eyes of the characters would show this regression more than clearly. Either they are closed for a disproportionately long time in some places or they are drawn very spongily from a greater distance. Movements would also be very choppy.

According to the viewers, these and many other little things ensure that the sequel is not even remotely comparable to the first season. Of course, there are many reasons for this, but many fans speculate that there might be problems within the studio.

Tight budget?

Mushoku Tensei - Tight budget

Right around this time, a tweet from animator @mailitaitai surfaced complaining that he had not been paid for his work on the sequel’s second episode. As a reason for this, he would have been told that the sequence he made would not have been used in the final version and therefore he would not appear in the credits.

In fact, however, his work was used, as he could also prove with a video. A short time later, the tweet was deleted and the animator shared in a follow-up post that he had been contacted by a producer and should now receive his payment properly.

Nevertheless, a bitter aftertaste remains. This incident gives the impression that there might be financial bottlenecks in the budget, which in turn could explain the animation quality of the second season, which was criticized by viewers.

In addition, the director of the first season, Manabu Okamoto, has left the project to direct “THE iDOLM@STER Cinderella Girls: U149”. This same anime unsurprisingly drew attention for its superior animation quality.

The rumors that a large part of the team of the first season has left the project seem to be true and it remains to be seen in which direction the anime will develop in the future. Enough time remains in any case, because it has already been hinted that Studio Bind wants to adapt the entire story of “Mushoku Tensei” as an anime.

The second season of “Mushoku Tensei” can be seen here in the original Japanese language with English subtitles on the streaming service Crunchyroll in the simulcast.
