Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation Season 2 Part 2 Episode 15 Review

Nanahoshi Will Never Return Home

Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation Season 2 Part 2 Episode 15 was one of those episodes that goes by too fast. I thought the episode was only halfway over when the end credits began rolling. Though, the credits were a bit earlier than normal in this episode.

So, why did this episode feel so short? I’m not entirely sure. A lot of the time, when episodes feel short, it’s because there’s a lot of action. That wasn’t the case here. Most of the episode was about Nanahoshi’s magic circle experiments.

Instead, my guess is that it felt short because I kept anticipating that something would happen. That something never did end up happening. But, I think the anticipation made me not realize how far into the episode I was. And, by something happening, I mean something bad — like Nanahoshi taking her own life.

Why would Nanahoshi take her own life, though? Well, as we saw, after this latest failure, Nanahoshi felt like she’d never succeed. She felt like she’d never be able to go back home. And because of that, she seemed to have been contemplating ending it all.

Unlike Rudeus, Nanahoshi never really assimilated into life within this world. But, that’s not exactly her fault. We need to remember that their situations are very different. Rudeus was reborn into this world and grew up here for about 18 years. Nanahoshi was transported to this world and has only been here for about five years.

From the very start, Nanahoshi has been trying to find a way back home. Rudeus hasn’t. He has family and friends here — things he doesn’t have back in his old world. Nanahoshi could make friends. But, she doesn’t have a family to support her. In her mind, she’s all alone.

Layering Summoning Circles

It now looks like Nanahoshi isn’t going to end her own life, thanks to the work of Rudeus and his friends. He had Zanoba, Elinalise, and Cliff take a look at her magic circle. And, together, they came up with a way to fix it.

Their solution was a pretty simple one, though it required thinking “outside the box.” Why use a single, very complex magic circle when you could use multiple, simple magic circles? By layering magic circles on top of each other, you can have them work as if they were one circle.

When testing this new method, Nanahoshi (with Rudeus’s mana) managed to summon a plastic bottle. A plastic bottle is a simple object. But, it’s a simple object that doesn’t exist in this world. So, it’s proof that they were able to summon something from their old world — the first step in Nanahoshi’s plan.

After this success, Nanahoshi says she’ll be able to summon whatever she wants into this world. However, that’s not what her end goal is. Her end goal is to reverse summon herself back into her old world. Do you think she’s going to succeed?

The way I see it, there are four possibilities. The first is that Nanahoshi can’t reverse summon herself and learns to live in this world. She’ll become friends with Rudeus’s friends and can summon items from her old world as she pleases. That’s the least interesting option.

The second is that she succeeds and eventually returns to her old world. The third is that she returns to her old world, and Rudeus gets caught up in the summoning. And, the fourth is that she dies in a horrific summoning accident. I’m hoping for that one. Things have been going too well for too long.

Ruijerd and the Little Sisters

I mentioned that the end credits started a bit earlier than usual in this episode. That was to make room for a post-credits scene, which I hope you didn’t skip. At the very end of the episode, Norn and Aisha show up at Rudeus’s doorstep.

Norn is easy to remember. But, I always forget that Aisha is the child and not the maid whom Paul knocked up. That’s Lilia. I don’t know why I always think Aisha is the mother and not the daughter, but I do. Anyway, Norn and Aisha are the two who are here.

Of course, we already knew that these two were going to show up at some point this season. The cover art for this half of the season features them both in Rudeus and Sylphie’s house. And, we also see this in the OP.

The big surprise is the person who brought Norn and Aisha to Rudeus’s home — Ruijerd. When Paul mentioned that a man Rudeus knew was escorting them, I had no idea who it could be. I actually forgot about Ruijerd in that moment, despite it being so obvious in hindsight.

Like, what other male character could it be? It could have been the Dedoldian leader, I guess. But, I don’t think Paul knows him. There are very few male characters whom both Paul and Rudeus know. And, the majority of them are members of Paul’s party. So, it wouldn’t have been surprising for Paul to run into them.

Ruijerd, though, now that is a surprise. I wonder if he’s going to have any information for Rudeus about what Eris is up to. I know he separated from Rudeus and Eris before they split up. But, he may have come across her training.

Final Thoughts

What do you think of Mushoku Tensei Season 2 Episode 15? Were you expecting Nanahoshi to take her own life in this episode? Do you think she’ll ever successfully make it back home? And, did you realize that Ruijerd was the one escorting Norn and Aisha before the end of the episode?
