Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation Season 2 Part 2 Episode 13 Review

Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation Season 2 Part 2 Episode 13 Review

Manhood Restored

Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation Season 2 Part 2 Episode 13 is here. And, yes, I’m calling this Episode 13 because it’s the 13th episode of Season 2. This isn’t Season 2 Part 2 Episode 1. So, if you meet anyone confused about that, let them know.

Now, as far as Mushoku Tensei episodes go, this one wasn’t all that good. That’s kind of to be expected as it’s the first episode of this half of the season. It was a bit of a warm-up episode. But, there was still some good content in it.

For example, everyone in Rudy’s class notices that he has a certain glow about him now. Why? Because Sylphie restored his manhood. Rudy’s no longer suffering from ED. And, he’s so happy about this that you’d think he just lost his virginity.

This is actually sort of important context for how Rudy was looking at Linia and Pursena in this episode. Like, sure, Rudy’s always a pervert. Him looking at those two like that isn’t something special. However, the context here is that, for the first time since he’s met them, he felt something when looking at them.

I’m not going to go so far as to call that character development. But, we shouldn’t ignore the significance of this for Rudy. For the past few years, he’s felt like a broken man. Now, he’s finally back to his old self. It’s an important step for him.

Will he try anything with Linia and Pursena now that his drive is back? I doubt it. He might grope them. But, I don’t see him trying to go all the way. He seems pretty devoted to Sylphie, for now. That’ll probably change when he reunites with Eris and Roxy.

Three Dweebs Go Ghost Busting

The best content of the episode came in the middle when Rudy, Zanoba, and Cliff explored a haunted mansion. Rudy was looking to buy a house so he could marry Sylphie. And, this was the only large house within his price range.

It’s a little more than haunted, though. Sounds have been reported by previous tenants, so there’s that. But, more worryingly, some of the previous tenants were also killed by something in the house. So, there’s definitely something dangerous lurking within.

Eventually, the trio discovers that an automaton is responsible for both the sounds and the deaths. Zanoba’s able to stop it thanks to his blessing which gives him super strength. And, as a connoisseur of figures and dolls, he immediately recognizes what a big find this is. Living dolls are a game changer if he can figure out how they work.

Alright, but the living doll isn’t actually why I liked this part of the episode. I liked it because of everything else that had to do with Zanoba. This was the most entertaining I’ve ever seen him. For example, right from the start, he rips the door of the mansion off its hinges to open it.

Did you also notice his weapon? Rudy and Griff have their staves. But, what did Zanoba have? Did he have a staff, too? No. Zanoba was literally carrying a wooden club. That’s amazing. Did he do that before and I didn’t notice?

Finally, there was also the part when Zanoba grabbed Cliff by the face. This part wasn’t so much Zanoba being funny. But, he was the one instigating the comedy. I loved how after Zanoba let go of Cliff, we heard Cliff casting a healing spell on himself off-screen.

A New House and a Proposal

I was thinking that Rudy had already proposed to Sylphie back in Episode 12. But, after looking back at my review, that’s not the case. He vowed that he would marry her and Princess Ariel referred to Sylphie as Sylphiette Greyrat.

There was never a formal proposal, though.

That changed in this episode. Rudy didn’t go the traditional route and get down on one knee to present Sylphie a ring. Instead, he went a bit further by presenting her with an entire house. And, he asked her to marry him while they were sitting on their bed.

When the first half of this season ended, I was wondering how their marriage was going to work. Well, we now have the answer. They weren’t married simply because Ariel declared them to be. There’s actually going to be a wedding.

But, what does married life look like for these two? They’re still attending the Ranoa University of Magic and Sylphie is still working as Ariel’s guard. Sure, they can live together in the mansion since it’s not far from the university. What comes after they graduate, though?

I can’t be the only one who questioned the location of this house. Are Rudy and Sylphie actually going to live here long-term? At some point, Rudy’s going to have to go back out into the world in search of his family. And, after that, is he going to return here instead of to Fittoa?

To me, it would make way more sense for Rudy and Sylphie to settle down back in Fittoa. That’s where they’re from and ever since the mana calamity, they’ve been searching for survivors. Shouldn’t they want to rebuild their lives there? Or, is it just me who thinks that?

Final Thoughts

What do you think about Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation Season 2 Part 2 Episode 13? Was this episode a good start to the second half of the season? Did you think Rudy had already proposed to Sylphie? And, where do you think they should settle down?

  1. I don’t expect that Rudues will be faithful to Sylphie and that he will grope Linia and Pursena.

    From what I’ve seen of this series in the anime, the author has no real intent to address Rudeus’s sexual depravity, even reincarnating him in a world where power and sex rule, the perfect world for Rudeus to be born into.

    I’d say it’s just a matter of time until he does something to them rather than him behaving for Sylphie’s sake.

    1. He never tried to do anything with Elinalise. Though, you could argue that’s because the entire time he was with her, he was also suffering from his ED.

      Still, I think the fact that Sylphie cured him is going to be pretty important to him. He also knows he can trust her and that she won’t leave. That’s not the case with Linia and Pursena. Would he put himself in that position again? I’m not so sure. At this point, I only see him being unfaithful as long as it’s with someone else he trusts, like Roxy (and eventually Eris again).
