Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation Season 2 Episode 12 Review

Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation Season 2 Episode 12 Review

Sylphiette Found a Cure

Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation Season 2 Episode 12 is the last episode of the cour. It’s not the last episode of Season 2, though. Well, at least not technically. This is only the end of Season 2 Part 1. Season 2 Part 2 begins airing in the spring.

Anyway, onto what happened in Episode 12. Sylphiette managed to cure Rudeus’s erectile dysfunction. Princess Ariel and Luke helped, too. But, Sylphiette was the one who did the bulk of the work. But, how exactly did she cure Rudeus’s ED? It’s more involved than you might have thought.

The first step to curing Rudeus was Sylphiette being herself. The fact that Sylphiette is Sylphiette is important here. Remember, Rudeus didn’t feel anything when he groped Linia. But, touching Sylphiette’s waist when she fell on him was enough to arouse something in him.

Unfortunately, Sylphiette alone wasn’t enough to fix Rudeus. We saw that when they tried to do the deed in the cave. And, to be fair, the fact that Rudeus couldn’t keep it up at the time was probably for the best. Did Sylphiette really want her first time to be in a dark, damp, cold cave?

This is where the second step came in, though. Even though Rudeus couldn’t perform, Sylphiette didn’t reject him in the same way Sara did. And the third step came when Sylphiette used the aphrodisiac provided to her by Luke. That helped Rudeus get it up and keep it up.

Finally, there’s the fourth step, which is likely the most important of all. Sylphiette returned the morning after. When Rudeus woke up and Sylphiette wasn’t there, he started to panic. Was this going to be a repeat of the Eris situation? No, because Sylphiette didn’t abandon him.

Rudeus and the Asuran Nobles

Now that Rudeus’s ED is cured, I guess he doesn’t have too much reason to stay at the University of Magic. Sure, he still wants to learn more about the mass teleportation event. And he can do so by working with Nanahoshi.

But, the whole mass teleportation thing wasn’t the main reason he was there. That was secondary to him trying to cure himself. So, I’m interested to see if Rudeus leaves the university in Part 2. I’m guessing he will, but that it will be about halfway through the cour.

Anyway, when Rudeus eventually leaves, he’ll be working alongside Princess Ariel. He’s not going to be working for her. At least, not yet. But, she’s going to be using his name and the prestige that comes with it to achieve her goals. And he’s going to be doing the same with her name.

Once Rudeus finishes reuniting his family, he’ll work with Princess Ariel directly. However, it’s unclear in what capacity this will be. I don’t see him becoming one of her knights, like Luke. Instead, it’s more likely that he’ll help her forge alliances while on his travels.

And, I get the feeling that it shouldn’t be too long before this happens. From what I remember, Zenith is the only family member still missing. And, her location is known. So, how long is it going to take to bring her back? It could happen by the end of an eventual Season 3.

What I’m more interested in, for now, is how Rudeus is going to use Princess Ariel’s name. What doors is name-dropping Princess Ariel going to open for him? I doubt many people care much about an exiled Asuran princess. I guess it’ll come in handy at some point, though.

Sylphiette Greyrat

I wasn’t expecting Rudeus to declare that he’s going to marry Sylphiette in this episode. And, considering Princess Ariel called Sylphiette “Sylphiette Greyrat,” I guess it’s official. Is there going to be a wedding? Or, are they married now that they said they are?

I don’t know. And I also don’t know what this means for the future of Rudeus’s relationships with the other girls. I predicted that the series would go down the harem route. There are plenty of other girls Rudeus has shown interest in besides Sylphiette.

There’s Eris, whom Rudeus has already slept with. There’s Roxy, who was Rudeus’s first crush and idol of his Roxism religion. And there’s Sara, whom Rudeus attempted to bed before his ED shut that down. I assumed Rudeus would eventually form a party with these girls as other members. And thus, his harem would be formed.

Now that Rudeus is married (or plans to marry) Sylphiette, the harem route gets a bit more complicated. Though, it’s still not impossible. After all, Paul cheated on Zenith with Lilia and things turned out all right. Also, Sylphiette previously acknowledged the men of the Greyrat family’s love of women.

However, it might actually make the most sense for Rudeus to be in a monogamous relationship. Think about Rudeus’s current relationships with the other girls. Eris is Rudeus’s cousin. Even if marriage between cousins is fine in this world, if they have children, that could be a bit “sus.”

Roxy is also far older than Rudeus and is his mentor. She’s around Paul and Zenith’s age in terms of years. She’ll also continue living long after Rudeus dies. Though, Sylphiette may, as well. And Sara doesn’t have a strong connection to Rudeus, so she’d be better as a normal party member.

Final Thoughts

What do you think of Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation Season 2 Episode 12? Did you think Sylphie’s first time was going to be on a cold cave floor? How do you think Rudy’s going to use Princess Ariel’s name in the future? And, do you think the series is going to go down the harem route?
