86 Eighty-Six Season 2 Synopsis:

The Republic of San Magnolia. For a long time, this country has been besieged by its neighbor, the Giadian Empire, which created a series of unmanned drones called the Legion. After years of painstaking research, the Republic finally developed autonomous drones of their own, turning the one-sided struggle into a war without casualties – or at least, that’s what the government claims. In truth, there is no such thing as a bloodless war.

Beyond the fortified walls protecting the eighty-five Republic territories lies the “nonexistent” Eighty-Sixth Sector. The young men and women of this forsaken land are branded the Eighty-Six and, stripped of their humanity, pilot the “unmanned” weapons into battle.

Shinn directs the actions of a detachment of young Eighty-Sixers while on the battlefield. Lena is a “handler” who commands the detachment from the remote rear with the help of special communication. The farewell story of the severe and sad struggle of these two begins!

A War Without Casualties The Republic of San Magnolia has long been under attack from the neighboring Giadian Empire’s army of unmanned drones known as the Legion.

Plot 86 Eighty-Six Season 2

The Republic of San Magnolia has been at war with the Empire of Giad for nine years. Though it initially suffered devastating losses to the Empire’s autonomous mechanized Legions, The Republic has since developed its own autonomous units, called Juggernauts, which are directed remotely by a Handler.

While on the surface the public believes the war is being fought between machines, in reality, the Juggernauts are being piloted by humans, all of whom are “86”—the designation given to the Colorata minority of San Magnolia.

The 86 originally had equal rights but were persecuted and scapegoated by the dominant Alba race and the Alba-supremacist Republic government to the point where Colorata were both officially designated and popularly considered subhuman.

The 86 were not permitted to have personal names and were immured in internment camps in the 86th District (their namesake); all the while being forced to fight in the Republic’s war with the Empire to receive better treatment.

Major Vladilena “Lena” Milizé, an Alba noble and military officer in the San Magnolian military, is an outspoken activist against the grave mistreatment of the nation’s Colorata minority, and the willful deception of the Republic government to the general public. She is assigned as the Handler of the Spearhead Squadron of the Eastern Front: an elite unit composed entirely of 86 veterans who have earned names.

Led by their squad leader, Shinei “The Undertaker” Nouzen, the Spearhead Squadron is infamous among military officials. Its notoriety stems from the state in which its commanding officers are left: Handlers presiding over the squad have descended into insanity and some have gone as far as committing suicide. Lena, an avowed 86 sympathizer, gets to know the Spearhead Squadron in her time as head of the contingent. At the same time, Lena and Shinei learn a dark secret: the Republic and the war with the Empire are not what they seem.

  1. Review of 86 Eighty-Six Season 2
Jun 19, 2021
Marinate1016 (All reviews)

The word masterpiece gets thrown around so much these days, it’s nearly lost its meaning. The literal meaning being the defining work of an individual’s career. I’m here to tell you now, 86 Eighty-Six Season 2 is a masterpiece in the truest sense of the word and is one of the best stories in the modern history of the medium. 86 depicts the brutal nature of war, racism, and oppression in such a way that you can’t help but be absorbed into the story, characters and fall in love with the series.

From the time it was announced that my favorite LN series would be getting an anime adaptation, I was filled with excitement at the prospect of seeing my fave scenes and characters adapted. Unfortunately, I could not help feeling a sense of dread as well given the studio that would be adapting it. A-1 has had a pretty inconsistent track record over the past decade or so.

They’ve given us some amazing works like Anohana and Bokumachi, but also some…. less than stellar works like SAO season 2 or War of Underworld PT.2. A-1 and the anime industry as a whole’s main issue is that LN adaptations are usually just cash grabs and glorified promo material to get people to go out and buy the books.

Usually, large swathes of stories are left out or butchered. As a result, I was worried that A-1 may rush through the story and omit key aspects of 86. Thankfully, I could not have been more wrong. Not only did A-1 remain faithful to the source material, they even enhanced it in many instances. With arguably their best LN adaptation ever, A-1 gave us the anime of the season.

86 is a very character-driven story. Volume 1, which the first cour of the anime covers, is quite slow at times just because of all the detail that goes into the world-building. Asato sensei does a great job of humanizing characters and creating a connection between you and them. There may be times during the anime where you feel it drags on or it’s going a bit slow, but I can guarantee you there’s a pay-off coming around the corner.

Every second you spend in this world and with these characters matters. The cruel nature of war and child soldiers is on full display, and unfortunately, death is always only a moment away. At the core of 86 Eighty-Six Season 2 is the theme of racism. The light novel and anime by extension, do an amazing job of showing how easy it is to fall into the cycle of hatred. On one hand, you have the Alba living peaceful lives within their cities, on the other you have the 86 being forced into a war they didn’t start and left to die.

The psychological trauma that both the kids and their commanding officer, Lena go through is conveyed masterfully and really drives home the toll these things can take on humans. If it sounds like this is a dense story, it’s because it is. There is a LOT to unpack in 86, which is why I am so happy A-1 took their time and only adapted one volume for the first cour. This is something that’s nearly unprecedented in today’s era of profit over fidelity.

From a cinematic perspective, A-1 eloquently employs the use of split perspectives in 86. The story is told through the eyes of Lena and Shin and is usually split halfway through each episode. It’s a great way to flesh out the world and the characters and I’m glad they went this route. I also loved the use of camera angles, particularly as it relates to facial expressions in the show. During tense moments and conversations, I found that the cuts and angles used added to the moment and helped drive home the significance of the scene.

I mentioned it briefly earlier, but I can’t help but reiterate how much I LOVED the pacing of the show. Usually, with these types of adaptations, we would get 1-3 volumes for 12 episodes. For a series like 86 which is quite frankly extremely dense, this would have been a disaster. Doing the first volume, at a rate of one chapter per episode and with the quality we got artistically with amazing character designs, the best CGI I’ve ever seen, etc etc., perfection.

Anyone who knows me knows I’ve been pushing the 86 Eighty-Six Season 2 agenda on Twitter and Facebook for years. Part of that agenda was an OST by Sawano Hiroyuki. I could not imagine the world of 86 Eighty-Six Season 2 being animated without an OST from the GOAT himself.

Sawano has done the OST for several aniplex mech series so it’s not really a shock that he hopped on 86 Eighty-Six Season 2, but bringing his kouhai Yamamoto Kohta onboard was a pleasant surprise. As you’d expect, the two of them SNAPPED on every track featured in the anime. Both EDs are amazing and several inserts like “The Answer” is on repeat on my phone daily. Could not ask for more.

In closing, 86 Eighty-Six Season 2 has been my favorite Light Novel series for years, and at this point, it’s probably safe to say the anime is now my favorite anime series. A-1 put together an all-star team of talent to work on this show, took their time, and gave us something really special.

Even if you don’t normally like mech or science-fiction anime, 86 Eighty-Six Season 2 is well worth a viewing due to the amazing handling of real-life themes. In today’s hyper-political and tense times, a story on the dangers of racism and hate couldn’t be more relevant.

Eighty-six gets 10 Para-Raids out of 10.

1. Review of Blue Period:
Jul 27, 2019
Lego_Leviathan (All reviews)

The story follows a high-school student named Yaguichi and how he falls in love with art.
One thing that stands out the most is the relatability that you can have with the characters, knowing you’re into something for the love of it and still not being good enough is something that most humans can relate to.
Another aspect this manga covers very well is the interaction between characters and how that affects each of them. I would say the rambling about artistic aspects of the pricing of schools is a bit annoying but it’s a necessary evil to understand the severity and the work needed.
2. Review of Blue Period:

A true hidden gem.

Blue Period is focused mainly on the discovery of the protagonist’s true passion: art. The manga tries to introduce and explain what art is all about and give some viewpoints. With that, Yatora finds in art the excitement he was looking for while searching for what he wants to do for life.

Despite not being an art student, rather a frustrated one, I find myself being continually identified with the protagonist, his path to improve his skills, and all the challenges that entail fully devoting himself to art.

Not only because of the joys of fulfilling the objective of what you wanted to demonstrate with a painting but also because of the limitations and the downs when the frustration and the famous “what is missing? what do I lack?” appears.

Blue Period contemplates the path of an art student from scratch, and it also has varied and inclusive characters with whom you can easily feel identified. It captures the milestones of a beginner trying to enter art school in careful detail.

In fact, it’s actually pretty grounded and realistic with some great characterization. The only negative part that I find positive in the story at the same time is the perseverance of the art professors who accompany the protagonist and the other characters along their path.
Taking into account the current educational system, I find that a little bit surreal but splendid at the same time. Every time I read a chapter I want to draw so badly, and if you also are an art lover like me, you will probably love this story.
3. Review of Blue Period:

Splair (All reviews)

Blue Period is absolutely breathtaking. It follows an exploration into the art world by a novice who has to improve his skills at a rapid pace. Every chapter focuses on a different aspect of studying art (emotional or technical) and how our MC overcomes these challenges.

Where this manga truly shines though is in its sincerity. I haven’t researched at all but I definitely got the notion that this mangaka had studied art in this way too– many scenes had details so meticulous that they could only have been drawn from real-life experience.

The characters, relationships, and story all feel real and not like cardboard cutouts of anime/manga tropes at all. This really impacted the overall tone of the manga and it felt like I was taking the journey alongside the main character.

Also, I need to mention that the challenges that the MC goes through really echoed my own experiences. Society’s view of art, following your passion, family expectations, etc, and more are explored in this manga and I know that if you’re an artist you may relate to it as well.

And even if not it’s a damn good drama and you might learn a thing or two about art along the way (I know I did!) After reading this manga I always want to draw! 10/10 from me!

Have you ever been truly passionate about something?

Blue Period is, before everything, about passion. It may sound cliché but this is the best manga I’ve ever read about “following your dreams and make them come true” as generic-shounen as it may sound.

Yatora was an uninterested high school student until he found himself in love with art. The first few chapters are about him finding his passion and dealing with the doubt and problems that come with it, the later chapters are more focused on the process of creating art.

This manga is beautiful, from the first few chapters you can see how each character is drawn with a slightly different artstyle, reflecting the intricacies of each one of them. The artworks featured in the manga were all created by different artists and the colored pages are works of art on their own.

The story is a classic coming-of-age so the focus is clearly on character development, the main characters (as you can include Ryuji with Yatora) are amazingly portrayed and it’s really interesting to see their hardships and how each one of them deal with them. The secondary characters are also nicely done, with each and every one of them having a solid characterization and motivation.

I think this is not only the best manga currently being published but the best manga overall, never before a manga moved me to the point of tears and made me question myself if I’ve ever been passionate about something in my life.

I recommend this manga for everyone, don’t be intimidated by the art thing, before reading Blue Period I wasn’t interested in art at all, now I see myself going to museums every now and then.

I really can’t praise Blue Period enough, if you are reading this review, go read this manga as soon as possible, it’s truly one of the masterpieces of our time.

In fact, it’s actually pretty grounded and realistic with some great characterization. The only negative part that I find positive in the story at the same time is the perseverance of the art professors who accompany the protagonist and the other characters along their path.
Taking into account the current educational system, I find that a little bit surreal but splendid at the same time. Every time I read a chapter I want to draw so badly, and if you also are an art lover like me, you will probably love this story.

Blue Period is absolutely breathtaking. It follows an exploration into the art world by a novice who has to improve his skills at a rapid pace. Every chapter focuses on a different aspect of studying art (emotional or technical) and how our MC overcomes these challenges.

Where this manga truly shines though is in its sincerity. I haven’t researched at all but I definitely got the notion that this mangaka had studied art in this way too– many scenes had details so meticulous that they could only have been drawn from real-life experience.

The characters, relationships, and story all feel real and not like cardboard cutouts of anime/manga tropes at all. This really impacted the overall tone of the manga and it felt like I was taking the journey alongside the main character.

Also, I need to mention that the challenges that the MC goes through really echoed my own experiences. Society’s view of art, following your passion, family expectations, etc, and more are explored in this manga and I know that if you’re an artist you may relate to it as well.

And even if not it’s a damn good drama and you might learn a thing or two about art along the way (I know I did!) After reading this manga I always want to draw! 10/10 from me!

tesslakane (All reviews)

Have you ever been truly passionate about something?

Blue Period is, before everything, about passion. It may sound cliché but this is the best manga I’ve ever read about “following your dreams and make them come true” as generic-shounen as it may sound.

Yatora was an uninterested high school student until he found himself in love with art. The first few chapters are about him finding his passion and dealing with the doubt and problems that come with it, the later chapters are more focused on the process of creating art.

This manga is beautiful, from the first few chapters you can see how each character is drawn with a slightly different artstyle, reflecting the intricacies of each one of them. The artworks featured in the manga were all created by different artists and the colored pages are works of art on their own.

The story is a classic coming-of-age so the focus is clearly on character development, the main characters (as you can include Ryuji with Yatora) are amazingly portrayed and it’s really interesting to see their hardships and how each one of them deal with them. The secondary characters are also nicely done, with each and every one of them having a solid characterization and motivation.

I think this is not only the best manga currently being published but the best manga overall, never before a manga moved me to the point of tears and made me question myself if I’ve ever been passionate about something in my life.

I recommend this manga for everyone, don’t be intimidated by the art thing, before reading Blue Period I wasn’t interested in art at all, now I see myself going to museums every now and then.

I really can’t praise Blue Period enough, if you are reading this review, go read this manga as soon as possible, it’s truly one of the masterpieces of our time.

Demon Slayer Season 2: Mugen Train Arc

Demon Slayer Season 2: Mugen Train Arc

 

Introduction to The Demon Slayer Season 2: Mugen Train Arc:

The second season of The Demon Slayer: Kimetsu No Yaiba now has an official release date! Koyoharu Gotouge’s original manga series has exploded in popularity since the debut of the anime’s first season back in 2019, and it has sparked a whole new wave of fandom for not only the original manga, but huge box office victories for the anime’s debut film, Demon Slayer: Mugen Train, as well.

Fans have been highly anticipating the full second season of the anime, and after confirming its return for the Fall 2021 anime schedule, the official release date has been confirmed…with a twist.

Demon Slayer Season 2 will be officially kicking off the adaptation for the Entertainment District arc of Gotouge’s original manga on December 5th. While this late-season debut seems shocking for such a highly anticipated series, there’s actually going to be a very good reason for this.

But it’s likely to divide fans who want to jump into the completely new content as soon as possible without reliving the events of the Mugen Train arc from the feature film as Season 2 will be first returning for a new take on Mugen Train beginning on October 10th.

While the official Entertainment District arc will be kicking off with a one-hour special episode this December, the anime will be returning this Fall with a new version of the Mugen Train arc. Beginning on October 10th, the second season of the anime will be technically starting with seven episodes showing off the Mugen Train arc from the feature film.

The premiere episode will be completely new, but the following episodes will feature the events of the Mugen Train arc seen in the film. There will be some brand new footage for fans worried about retreading old ground, but for fans who want a completely new experience, it will begin in December with that one-hour episode kicking off the Entertainment District arc.

This means fans will get their fill of new Demon Slayer anime episodes beginning in October, but the truly new story material will begin in December as the anime prepares to finish out its second cour and continue into early 2022 for the remainder of its big anime return. But what do you think of this idea? Curious to see how the TV anime will be handling a recap of the movie? Let us know all of your thoughts about it in the comments!

Before Watching Demon Slayer Season 2: Mugen Train Arc Here Is the Story of the Movie:

The TV version of Demon Slayer Season 2: Mugen Train Arc 2021 including an entirely new first episode. The first episode depicts Rengoku as he embarks on his journey to the Mugen Train. The remaining episodes will add about 70 new animation cuts and new background music, as well as a new trailer.

Story of the movie Demon Slayer: Mugen Train Tanjiro and the group have completed their rehabilitation training at the Butterfly Mansion, and they arrive at their next mission, on the unknown Mugen Train, where over 40 people had disappeared in a concise period of time.

After Enmu is assigned to kill Tanjiro Kamado to become an Upper Rank and obtain more of Muzan‘s blood, Tanjiro, Zenitsu, and Inosuke buy tickets for the Infinity Train in search of Kyojuro Rengoku, the Flame Hashira.

Tanjiro hopes he has some info on the Hinokami Kagura. Kyojuro informs them that he was sent to kill a Demon suspected to be the cause for multiple disappearances on the train.

He informs Tanjiro that, unfortunately, he knows nothing of the Hinokami Kagura. He quickly senses a demon and kills it, the group, impressed by his skills, asks that he makes them his Tsugukos and Kyojuro accepts.

Enmu promises to use his powers to give each of them heartwarming, sweet dreams in exchange for their help in carrying out his plan to kill the Demon Slayers. The group had already touched Enmu’s blood by taking hold of their tickets, putting the first act of the plan into motion.

As they sleep, the group falls into vivid dreams as an effect of touching the tickets. Enmu’s minions work on connecting themselves to the group’s dreams through a rope with a special spell that enables them to penetrate the dreams of others, completing the second stage of Enmu’s plan.

Due to the nature of Enmu’s powers, the dreams a person is shown exist in a limited space, outside being an unconscious area where a person’s “spiritual core” lies.

Meanwhile, Tanjiro carries out his dream while receiving more and more unconscious cues from his mind, such as seeing Nezuko’s box or being told by himself in his Demon Slayer uniform that he is experiencing a dream.

At the same time, Nezuko woke up and exited her box after being confused by Kyojuro’s actions before attempting to wake up Tanjiro but to no avail.

Annoyed, she headbutted Tanjiro but ended up splitting her head and started bleeding due to Tanjiro’s comically hard forehead. She then uses her Blood Demon Art, which engulfed his real and dream body in flames, allowing him to wake up and slowly retain his sword and uniform.

Background of the movie Demon Slayer Season 2: Mugen Train Arc:

As of January 31, 2021, Kimetsu no Yaiba Movie: Mugen Ressha-hen is Japan’s highest-grossing film of all time, with a box office revenue of 36.8 billion yen (458.8 million USD).

TOP CRITIC
May 26, 2021
The animation is fantastic, a superb blend of classic anime character design supplemented by CGI effects and swooping camera work. The action, like South Korean features Snowpiercer or Train to Busan, takes place mostly on a train where the demon slayers – brunette, magenta-eyed hero Tanjiro Kamado, his tame demon sister Nezuko, blond pretty boy Zenitsu Agatsuma and shouty half-man-half-boar Inosuke Hashibira – come to find a slaying master Kyojuro, who has unique fire-adjacent properties.

But just as the ensemble is getting to know each other, they are sent into sleep comas by a powerful demon and his bewitched child demons. In his dreams, Tanjiro meets his family once again – the ones who were killed by demons in the TV series – and the others have similar reveries, compelling them to decide which reality they want to live in.

Squint a bit, relax your mind and you might find in it a touching allegory that accidentally corresponds to our own, collective emergence from the oneiric, mesmeric lull of lockdown life, in which sleeping too much and dreaming about dead loved ones could have become the new going out.

3. Review of the Demon Slayer Season 2: Mugen Train Arc
April 19, 2021

This is a film about battles between humans and demons and a character-building buddy movie about maturation.I have not read the manga, nor have I seen the TV series, but it didn’t matter.

The story is simple: On a passenger train speeding through the night, a group of young demon slayers assembles to protect the train’s 200 riders from terrifying demons in what appears to be early 20th century Japan.

The team — members of the Demon Slayers Corps — are led by Tanjiro. The 13-year-old is trying to save his sister Nezuko, who has been transformed into a demon. On the train, the group meets the greatest demon slayer of them all, Rengoku, with his fiery blond mane, and Tanjiro asks to become his disciple.

Together, they battle a shape-shifting demon who often appears as a stylish woman and sports a hand with its own face and independent will.

What makes “Mugen Train” visually mesmerizing is that many of the battles take place in the demon slayers’ dreams. The demons try to either kill or transform humans by entering their subconscious, lulling them into a fantasy world where dead family members are still alive and peace reigns across the land.

4. Review of the Demon Slayer Season 2: Mugen Train Arc

  • Brilliant. An excellent bridge between Season One and the upcoming Season Two. All of the angst and soul of the series, but with the big story and gorgeous animation you would expect to see in the cinema.
  • Very moving and deeply emotional, but well-balanced with humor and incredible fight sequences. Highly recommended, even for those who have never seen the show.
  • Beautiful environment animation. This movie in the theaters made me want to see more films like this in theaters, it’s way better than at home. IMO!
  • 100 out of 10 yes I said 100 out of 10 Demon Slayer was the cheese need will buy a copy!
  • Screaming and crying the whole time. The manga cannot even COMPARE. The animation was beautiful as usual, the visuals were insane. Audio can be loud in some parts, so bring earplugs if you have sensitive hearing. Honestly, if you cry easily, bring the tissues.
  • Fantastic movie with stellar animation and storytelling. If you have any interest at all in seeing it, definitely do it. I don’t think you will be disappointed.

I saw this in theatres in Japan.

So firstly definitely recommend seeing it in theatres. The screen really does it justice. THEIR EYEBALLS ARE BEAUTIFUL.

If you’re going to watch it in Japanese (which is totally doable as a non-Japanese speaker me), I recommend reading manga chapters 54-66 (chapter 69 is where I think it should’ve ended but *shrug*). It is identical to this. This’ll let you skip the subtitle-wait if you so choose.

So the artwork of the characters is beautiful, but some of the CGI + 2D animation style was a little funky. It gave an uncanny valley feeling due to the realism background, CGI demon-y stuff, and the original art style for the characters. Literally, my only problem.

The 2D character designs are stunnnnniiinnnnggg. I’m so happy with the choreography and movement, but jeez, that CGI and sometimes the background clash.

The soundtrack is on point. I became hyper-aware of the soundtrack during perfectly executed moments with certain character buildups.

Comic relief was perfect, and the characters were true to form.

If you like theanime, you’ll like the movie. Easy as that.

I’m super happy I saw it in general, but especially on a big screen.

PS If you’re not reading the manga but want to continue watching the next anime season, this is a must-watch movie. It’s not a filler movie you can ignore. It influences over the next season. So add it to the list.

Film Demon Slayer Season 2: Mugen Train Arc was seen on a huge Imax (the biggest in Japan), and it was a good idea. I recommend you to see it in excellent condition.

I won’t go into it for the story, it’s just the sequel to the anime, and it’s inevitable to watch it if you like the series.

The animation is incredible. I don’t have the words to describe how much I loved it. Whether it was the colours, the movement, the choreography, and especially the fights, it was amazing.

Unexpected but a lot of humor throughout the film, we laughed a lot!

(I try to put more than 10 to the animation score)

Before Watching Mo Dao Zu Shi Season 3, here is everything you need to know:

Mo Dao Zu Shi (Chinese: 魔道祖师; pinyin: Mó Dào Zǔ Shīlit. ‘Demonic Path Ancestral Master’) is a donghua series based on the novel of the same name written by Mo Xiang Tong Xiu (Chinese: 墨香铜臭). It is produced by Tencent Penguin Pictures and B.C May Pictures.

The series depicts a fictional Xianxia world where humans attempt to cultivate to a state of immortality, known as Xian (Chinese: ). The protagonist of the series, Wei Wuxian, due to certain circumstances, deviated from the conventional cultivation path to Xian, and eventually created Mo Dao (the Demonic Path).

The first season, titled Qian Chen Pian (Chinese: 前尘篇), aired from July 9 to October 6, 2018, on Tencent Video for 15 episodes. The second season, titled Xian Yun Pian (Chinese: 羡云篇), aired from August 3, 2019, to August 31, 2019, with 8 episodes.

A third season has been confirmed in the post-credit scene of the final episode of the second season. A trailer for the third season was released on January 22nd, 2021. A chibi series aired from July 31, 2020, to January 29, 2021, and ran for 30 episodes. The third season was released on August 7th, 2021, and will run for 12 episodes.

Mo Dao Zu Shi Season 3 Synopsis N.1:

As the grandmaster who founded the Demonic Sect, Wei Wuxian roamed the world in his wanton ways, hated by millions for the chaos he created. In the end, he was back-stabbed by his dearest shidi and killed by powerful clans that combined to overpower him. He incarnates into the body of a lunatic who was abandoned by his clan and is later, unwillingly, taken away by a famous cultivator among the clans-Lan Wangji, his archenemy.

This marks the start of a thrilling yet hilarious journey of attacking monsters, solving mysteries, and raising children. From the mutual flirtation along the way, Wei Wuxian slowly realizes that Lan Wangji, a seemingly haughty and indifferent poker-face, holds more feelings for Wei Wuxian than he is letting on.

Mo Dao Zu Shi Season 3 Synopsis N.2:

Despite his merits during the Sunshot Campaign to bring down the tyrannical Wen Clan, Wei Wuxian (魏无羡) was feared by the world for the unorthodox path he himself created. Thirteen years after he was killed, he is summoned into the body of a person called Mo Xuanyu (莫玄羽), who was rejected by his clan and despised by his family, therefore sacrificing his own body to Wei Wuxian so he could avenge him.

He’ll soon meet a cultivator from his past, Lan Wangji (蓝忘机). Together, they will try to discover the identity of the person to whom belongs the dismembered left arm they found at the Mo house. What they don’t know is that this mystery will lead them to unravel what lies behind the tragic events that caused the death of many people and of Wei Wuxian himself.

Mo Dao Zu Shi Season 3 Characters:

Main characters (Mo Dao Zu Shi Season 3):

Wei Ying (魏婴), courtesy name Wuxian (无羡) Mo Dao Zu Shi Season 3

Wei Wuxian is the protagonist of the series, born as the only son of Cangse Sanren (藏色散人) and Wei Changze (魏长泽). He was a former disciple of the Jiang Clan of Yunmeng and later created the Demonic Path (鬼道), thus earning him the title of Yiling Patriarch (夷陵老祖). His weapons included the sword Suibia, the flute Chenqing, and various weapons crafted using Demonic power.
 After losing his golden core, he was unable to wield Suibian and resorted to using the Chenqing to control corpses under the Demonic Path. No one apart from Wei Wuxian and Jiang Cheng has been able to unsheathe Suibian.
 After the death of his parents during a Night Hunt, he was brought to Lotus Pier by Jiang Fengmian and joined the Jiang Clan of Yunmeng. He is an intelligent, bright, optimistic, mischievous but good-hearted cultivator, whose intelligence and strength lie more in his ability to invent new spiritual techniques and inventions not defined by conventional cultivation methods.
 Growing up in Lotus Pier, Wuxian was raised like a son to Jiang Fengmian and a brother to Jiang Cheng and Jiang Yanli. Despite showing little to no affection to him, Yu Ziyuan proved to be protective of him when Lotus Pier was under siege.
 He met Lan Wangji while he traveled to Gusu to study under the Lan Clan of Gusu at Cloud Recesses. During his studies there, he broke multiple rules of Cloud Recesses and was punished to copy down the 3000 rules with Lan Wangji supervising. He was later kicked out of Cloud Recesses after punching Jin Zixuan when he overheard him talking about Jiang Yanli disrespectfully. He returned to Yunmeng to continue his training.
 Shortly after the Siege of Lotus Pier, after rescuing Jiang Cheng, Wei Wuxian realized his Golden Core was destroyed by Wen Zhuliu during his capture. He sacrificed his own Golden Core so Jiang Cheng can continue his cultivation but was captured by Wen Chao shortly after the sacrifice. During his weak stage, he was thrown into the Burial Mounds where he created the Demonic Path within three months.
 During the Sunshot Campaign (射日之征), he returned as a practicer of Demonic Path. Although he was able to turn the tides and ended the campaign with the defeat of the Wen Clan, his methods were frowned upon due to their unorthodox nature. After the events of Qiongqi Path (穷奇道), he took in the Wen Clan branch to which Wen Ning and Wen Qing belonged, as well as revived Wen Ning back as a living corpse.
 The Jin Clan, which was quickly rising to power after the demise of the Wen Clan, started exerting pressure on the Jiang Clan with the other clans. As a result, his childhood friend Jiang Cheng, the new leader of the Jiang Clan was under pressure. Wei Wuxian chose to leave the Jiang Clan of Yunmeng shortly to preserve the clan’s name and pretended to cut ties with Jiang Cheng.
 He set up base in the Burial Mounds as the Yiling Patriarch, where he provided sanctuary for the Wen Clan survivors prior to the First Siege of the Burial Mounds.
 He died in the First Siege of the Burial Mounds, which is thirteen years prior to the start of the story. He was then summoned into the body of Mo Xuanyu (莫玄羽) through a sacrificial ritual. He travels with Lan Wangji to discover the identity of the person a left-arm belonged to and falls in love with him along the way.
 Wei Wuxian is terribly afraid of dogs. This is due to his traumatic experience on the streets shortly after his parents passed away and before he was taken in by Jiang Fengmian. He also has a liking for alcohol, specifically the Emperor’s Smile of Gusu, and spicy food.

Lan Zhan (蓝湛), courtesy name Wangji (忘机). Mo Dao Zu Shi Season 3

Lan Wangji is the second young master of the Lan Clan. Titled as Hanguang-Jun (含光君). He is known for his cold, aloof, and strict nature.
 He first met Wei Wuxian at the walls of Cloud Recesses, where Wei Wuxian was sneaking in Emperor’s Smile, which was banned within Cloud Recesses. The two bonded when they battled the Xuanwu in a cave after being trapped by the Wen Clan. The two stayed behind to distract the creature while the others escaped calling for backup. It was in the cave when Lan Zhan first performed the song WangXian (忘羡, meaning to forget envies) to Wei Wuxian when the latter was weak after being injured by the creature. Mo Dao Zu Shi Season 3
 When Wei Wuxian became the Yiling Patriarch, he often tried to persuade him to stop following the dark arts and attempted to protect him from being persecuted by the other cultivation clans, but to no avail. During the First Siege of the Burial Mounds, he tried the protect Wei Wuxian and in the process injured 33 of his clansmen.
 After the battle, he was punished to receive 33 whips and was grounded for 3 years, which he spent recovering from his punishment. During the 3–year period he heard of Wei Wuxian’s death and despite his injuries, rushed to the Burial Mounds to look for him. Although he was unable to find anything related to Wei Wuxian, he found Wen Yuan, suffering from a fever, hidden away in a hollowed-out tree.
 During his youth, he fell in love with Wei Wuxian and mourned for him during the thirteen years of his absence. Lan Wangji was the first to recognize Wei Wuxian in the body of Mo Xuanyu when Wei Wuxian played the song Wangxian to summon Wen Ning.

 He has a warm and gentle personality in contrast to Lan Wangji. He is trustful and loyal to others and his kindness is not limited to those of his clan. This is especially shown through his relationship with Jin Guangyao, as he was the only person who did not look down on Jin Guangyao despite his status as the son of a prostitute.
 However, Lan Xichen does possess a temper and is deeply protective of those he cares for, especially his younger brother. His anger is best seen towards Wei Wuxian, whom he developed a grudge against because Lan Wangji had defended Wei Wuxian and betrayed the Lan Clan to protect him. He even refers bitterly to Wei Wuxian as “the only mistake Lan Wangji made in his life”.
  • Lan Qiren (蓝启仁) Mo Dao Zu Shi Season 3
Lan Qiren is an elder of the Lan Clan known for producing outstanding students, even out of the most hopeless ones. He is the uncle of Lan Xichen and Lan Wangji. Having watched his brother Qingheng-jun (青蘅君) drive himself into self-destruction over love, he took guardianship of his nephews, teaching them strictly in an effort to prevent them from following their father’s footsteps, although Lan Wangji eventually eloped with Wei Wuxian. He is hence infamously known to be a pedantic, stubborn, and strict teacher.
  • Lan Yuan (蓝愿), courtesy name Sizhui (思追) Mo Dao Zu Shi Season 3
Lan Sizhui is a disciple of the Lan Clan. He was originally born to the Wen Clan with the name Wen Yuan (温苑). He was found by Wei Wuxian among the remains of the Wen Clan who were forced to work in a valley in Yiling. He was then relocated to the Burial Mounds and lived with his relatives under the care of Wei Wuxian before his death.
 Wei Wuxian then started raising him and he was seen often traveling with Wuxian. After the First Siege of the Burial Mounds, when he was only three years old, he lost both Wei Wuxian and his home as his family was murdered during the siege as well. He was later found in a hollowed-out tree by Lan Wangji who came searching for Wei Wuxian’s remains after the siege, but he fell into a high fever and lost all memories of his past. Mo Dao Zu Shi Season 3
 He was then re-named as Lan Yuan and presumably given the courtesy name Sizhui in the same year that Wei Wuxian returned to the living world.

He is close friends with Lan Sizhui and Jin Ling.

 He is also known as one of the Three Venerated Ones alongside his sworn brothers Lan Xichen and Nie Mingjue. He sought greater amounts of power due to the fact he had often been looked down upon due to his status as the son of a prostitute. However, this is with the exception of his sworn brother Lan Xichen, whose kindness was the reason he held Lan Xichen to the highest esteem. Mo Dao Zu Shi Season 3
 He had accomplished many achievements in his life, such as building lookout towers and helping to rebuild the Cloud Recesses’ libraries. However, his desire for power had led him to team up with shady characters like Xue Yang to harness the power of the Stygian Tiger Seal (阴虎符), which was once deemed too powerful and broken in half to prevent any more damage.
 His fear and hatred cost but a few lives, including “his father, brother, wife, son, and friend”.

 He owns a spiritual dog which he had named Fairy, which was given to him by Jin Guangyao. He is prideful and short-tempered, which caused him difficulty getting along with his peers and he doesn’t have many friends his age. Although he became who he is due to his life circumstances, he is still kind at heart and strives to become a better person. He is close friends with Lan Sizhui and Lan Jingyi.
  • Jin Zixuan (金子轩) Mo Dao Zu Shi Season 3
Jin Zixuan was Jiang Yanli’s husband and the father of Jin Ling. He was Jin Guangshan’s only legitimate child. He was arrogant and had no issue insulting Jiang Yanli while her brothers were in range to hear.
 However, he was shown to have a sense of justice, shown by his willingness to stand up to Wen Chao when the latter ordered them to seize Mianmian to be sacrificed in order to lure a monster, protecting her alongside Lan Wangji even though he knew his actions would bear consequences.
  • Qin Su (秦愫) Mo Dao Zu Shi Season 3
Qin Su was the legal wife of Jin Guangyao. She was the daughter of Qin Cangye, the leader of the Laoling Qin Clan, a subsidiary of the Jin Clan. After Jin Guangyao saved her life during the Sunshot Campaign (射日之征), she fell in love with him and did not give up until they were married. Mo Dao Zu Shi Season 3
 She then became Jin Guangyao’s official wife and the mistress of Carp Tower. It is revealed that she was actually one of Jin Guangshan’s illegitimate children as Jin Guangshan once raped her mother while he was drunk. But because Qin Cangye was an advent supporter of Jin Guangshan, her mother could not tell him.
 When her mother told Jin Guangyao the truth that he and Qin Su were siblings, Qin Su was already pregnant. Jin Guangyao still married her to not lose the support of her stepfather and Jin Guangshan. When their son was around three, Jin Guangyao murdered him as one of his plans to rise up to the Chief Cultivator title. Mo Dao Zu Shi Season 3

In his living days and even during Wei Wuxian’s possession of his body, he was described as a lunatic. Mo Dao Zu Shi Season 3
 In his past, he was tortured with meeting the expectations of his servant mother to gain recognition of his father. He was then sent to Jin Clan to learn cultivation but was cast out after harassing Jin Guangyao, as he is a cut-sleeve (homosexual).
 He returned to Mo Village and his mother died soon after, leaving him in the care of his abusive aunt, mistress Mo, and her son, Mo Ziyuan (莫子渊). Both were resentful of his wasted opportunity at becoming a cultivator of a prolific clan, and hence physically beaten and verbally abused him to the point of insanity.

Qinghe Nie Clan (Mo Dao Zu Shi Season 3)

Nie Clan of Qinghe (清河聂氏) is a cultivation clan that resides in the Unclean Realm. Its current leader is Nie Huaisang.

  • Nie Mingjue (聂明玦) Mo Dao Zu Shi Season 3
Titled Chifeng-Zun (赤锋尊), Nie Mingjue was the former leader of the Nie Clan and the older half-brother of Nie Huaisang. He is known as one of the Three Zuns alongside his sworn brothers Jin Guangyao and Lan Xichen. Nie Mingjue’s personality was defined by strictness, a bad temper, and intolerance for anything deviating from the moral good.
 While this attitude won him acclaim and reputation, the shift in power towards the Jin Clan after the Sunshot Campaign (射日之征) also marked him as a great opposition to their power.
 Furthermore, as the trademark cultivation of his clan affected his temper, his intolerance grew and he could not accept that two of his subordinates were killed by Jin Guangyao when they were captured with him and brought before Wen Ruohan in the Nightless City (不夜天城).
 This was despite Jin Guangyao pointing out that Nie Mingjue himself would have died if they did not, since all three had offended Wen Ruohan. He was murdered by Jin Guangyao and turned into a fierce corpse.
  • Nie Huaisang (聂怀桑) Mo Dao Zu Shi Season 3
Nie Huaisang is the current leader of the Nie Clan and the younger half-brother of Nie Mingjue, as well as an old school friend of Wei Wuxian.

Eventually, he was decapitated by Nie Mingjue, with his head hung up as a demonstration to the Wen Clan’s cultivators.
  • Wen Chao (温晁) Mo Dao Zu Shi Season 3
Wen Chao was the youngest son of Wen Ruohan and leader of the Wen Clan. He enjoyed harassing women. One instance was with Mianmian (绵绵), which ended with Wei Wuxian saving her by diverting his attention to fake erotic arts.
 Because of his and Wen Ruohan’s malicious intent, they caused great destruction to the Lan Clan and Jiang Clan by destroying their residences and killing the entire Jiang Clan, except the three children (Wei Wuxian, Jiang Cheng, and Jiang Yanli) who went into hiding.

 Due to the downfall of Wen Clan, as a survivor, she and her family were forced to work, at points to their deaths. After Wuxian liberated them and took their family branch under his wing, she relocated their family branch to the Burial Mounds.
 After the Qiongqi Massacre, in order to not burden Wuxian with the responsibility, she and Wen Ning (already the Ghost General) surrendered themselves. She was later burned to death, and her ashes scattered.

 He was originally murdered by Jin Zixuan’s followers after the downfall of the Wen Clan, which led to Wuxian liberating his family and bringing him back as the Ghost General.

When he heard that both parents had died on a night-hunt, he dedicated himself to finding their son.
He eventually found Wei Wuxian on the streets of Yiling and fed him a piece of melon before carrying him home to Yunmeng. Because of his treatment of Wei Wuxian which was seen as better than how he treated his own son, he and his wife often argued. Along with his wife, he died in Wen Clan’s hands during their invasion of the Lotus Pier.

He is a straight-laced and strict man who abides by the rules. He has a deep care for his family and friends and knows to respect his elders.
 In the beginning, he had a good relationship with Wei Wuxian, despite the latter often annoying him with his mischief. However, his hatred for the Wen Clan caused a great strain in their relationship as Wuxian regarded Wen Ning as a close friend and kept the survivors under his care. This eventually became pure hatred when Wen Ning accidentally killed his brother-in-law (Jin Zixuan) and his sister died while protecting Wei Wuxian.
 However, ultimately, he gives up this hatred after learning how Wei Wuxian had sacrificed his Golden Core for him. Though despite all these, he still loves his nephew Jin Ling and acts in a strict manner like his mother had done to him as a child. He would sacrifice his life in order to protect his nephew.
 After the death of his parents, he had to quickly step into the role of the new clan leader without Wuxian by his side as the latter was trapped in the Burial Mounds at that time.

She had an arranged marriage since young with Jin Zixuan as their mothers were very close. But Jin Zixuan did not like her at first, and she was often mocked by him for being average. Shortly after Wei Wuxian’s fight with Jin Zixuan and he returned to Lotus Pier from Cloud Reclusiveness, she asked her father to break off the engagement as she saw no point in bounding him to someone he doesn’t like.
 After the Sunshot Campaign, Jin Zixuan developed feelings for her and they were wed. On the day of their wedding, Jiang Yanli visited the Burial Mounds with the help of Jiang Cheng to show her seemingly estranged adopted brother Wei Wuxian her wedding dress.
She bore a son for Jin Zixuan (Jin Ling) before his death on the day of their son’s First Month Banquet (满月宴). She does not blame Wei Wuxian for Wei Ning’s rampage which killed her husband, but she was killed shortly after her husband’s death in a crossfire between Wei Wuxian and other clans, making her death the straw that broke Wei Wuxian, leading to his demise.
  • Yu Ziyuan (虞紫鸢) Mo Dao Zu Shi Season 3
Yu Ziyuan was the wife of Jiang Fengmian and the mother of Jiang Cheng and Jiang Yanli. She had a cold and assertive personality which did not come off as likable. Titled Violet Spider (紫蜘蛛), she was a formidable cultivator whose name alone could scare quite a few people away. She had a poor relationship with Wei Wuxian, as she viewed him as the cause of all problems that befall her family.
She would often speak poorly of him in her conversations with Jiang Fengmian. She obliged to whip him with Zidian (紫电) when Wang Lingjiao demanded him to be punished. However, she showed some care towards Wei Wuxian when she did not chop off his hand despite Wang Lingjiao’s demands.

Due to Xiao Xingchen’s blindness, he neither recognized the man he had saved as the criminal Xue Yang nor that the latter had tricked him into killing people. When he found out that Xue Yang had tricked him into killing Song Lan, he committed suicide, shattering his soul.

Song Lan was a cultivator from Baixue Temple and a friend of Xiao Xingchen. He had his eyes blinded and poisoned by Xue Yang when Baixue Temple was destroyed.
 But Xiao Xingchen dug out his own eyes and gave them to him after bringing him to Baoshan Sanren’s residence and begging her to save him. While searching for Xiao Xingchen after his sudden disappearance, he came across A-Qing who was out playing on her own. A-Qing then helped him get to Xiao Xingchen.
 When they arrived at the coffin house, he recognized Xue Yang immediately and advised A-Qing to stay away from this matter, although she then followed him secretly. During his fight with Xue Yang, the latter gave him Corpse Poisoning and cut off his tongue, hence he was rendered mute.
Xue Yang later tricked Xiao Xingchen into killing him. Xue Yang turned him into a fierce corpse who will obey him, and he was also summoned to fight Wei Wuxian. But Wei Wuxian managed to return his consciousness and gave him the spirit-trapping pouch that contained Xiao Xingchen’s and A-Qing’s souls.
  • A-Qing (阿箐) Mo Dao Zu Shi Season 3
A-Qing was a young girl who lived who pretended to be blind thanks to her white pupils. She encountered Xiao Xingchen and started living together with him and Xue Yang. She eventually saw Xue Yang trick Xiao Xingchen into killing Song Lan and ran away at Xiao Xingchen’s request. Xue Yang found her before she could get help, and she insulted him.
 Xue Yang then carved out her eyes and tongue, killing her. She later tried to warn Wei Wuxian, Lan Wangji, and the juniors who had entered coffin city about Xue Yang. To learn more about her story, Wei Wuxian used a rite to see, feel, and hear her memories.

Xue Yang (薛洋), courtesy name Chengmei (成美) Mo Dao Zu Shi Season 3

Xue Yang was a guest of the Jin Clan who recreated the destroyed half of the Stygian Tiger Seal. He was found by Xiao Xingchen and A-Qing while he was injured and unconscious on the streets. He was then brought to an uninhabited coffin house where the two tended to his injuries.
 As the two did not know his real identity, he used Xiao Xingchen’s blindness to his advantage and ended up living with them for years through deception. However, he was exposed when A-Qing witnessed his malicious intent. He fought Xiao Xingchen and ultimately revealed the truth, which caused Xiao Xingchen to commit suicide.
 As Xue Yang was unable to turn him into a fierce corpse, he stored his shattered soul in a spirit-trapping pouch. He later found A-Qing who was seeking revenge and killed her by digging her eyes and cutting her tongue out.

Mo Dao Zu Shi Season 3

Review of the anime Mo Dao Zu Shi Season 3:

Aug 21, 2021
ApocalypSnow (All reviews)

The final season of Mo Dao Zu Shi Season 3 starts off with a more somber tone. It picks up after the end of the second season with Yi City, a ghost town, and aims to develop Wei Wuxian and Lan Wangji’s relationship and resolve the mystery of the mutilated corpse.

Story Mo Dao Zu Shi Season 3: In terms of the structure with integrating flashbacks without disrupting the main story, the second season did it best. I felt that Xue Yang’s story was a bit rushed here, even though it still hits hard. 6/10

Art Mo Dao Zu Shi Season 3: The animation of Mo Dao Zu Shi Season 3 is stellar, from the opening to the paintings in the ending to the fight scenes. Cultivator skills are freaking scary sometimes. LWJ using his sword to deflect several throwing blades reminded me of Adam from RWBY. And the rooftop scene of LWJ chasing/dancing with WWX and chugging his drink right from the jar looked great. 10/10

Sound Mo Dao Zu Shi Season 3: As always, the soundtrack for Mo Dao Zu Shi Season 3 does not disappoint. The opening song is different but fits the theme with this being the final season, and you can also hear the motif of “zither and flute.” The music is powerful and adds to the emotions, tension, and drama in the anime. 10/10

Character Mo Dao Zu Shi Season 3: Characterization improves over seasons, including this final season. It’s the little moments between WWX and LWJ—like LWJ refusing to burn joss paper for WWX because he desperately hoped WWX was still alive, and WWX bringing LWJ to the rooftops to keep the Juniors from seeing LWJ drunk—that make their relationship more special. And even with a relatively small portion of the season dedicated to Xue Yang, you still grow attached to him. The best part of the characters in this season is the new focus on the Juniors. You can finally tell Lan Sizhui and Lan Jingyi apart, and their interactions with Jin Ling are fun to watch. 8/10

Enjoyment Mo Dao Zu Shi Season 3: The mystery unravels very, very slowly, but that’s okay because there are so many of the world and characters’ stories to explore. 8/10

Overall of Mo Dao Zu Shi Season 3: I recommend this anime Mo Dao Zu Shi Season 3 to anyone who likes action and is interested in a Chinese cultivation story. I love the concept of clans and ageless cultivators fighting monsters and trying to solve a mystery involving corpses and zombies. 9/10

Mushoku Tensei Jobless Reincarnation Part 2

Before watching Mushoku Tensei Jobless Reincarnation Part 2, here is everything you need to know:

Mushoku Tensei Jobless Reincarnation Part 2 (Japanese: 無職転生 〜異世界行ったら本気だす〜, Hepburn: Mushoku Tensei: Isekai Ittara Honki Dasu, “Jobless Reincarnation: I Will Seriously Try If I Go to Another World”) is a Japanese light novel series by Rifujin na Magonote about a jobless and hopeless man who reincarnates in a fantasy world while keeping his memories, determined to live his new life without regrets.

Originally published on the internet web novel website Shōsetsuka ni Narō in November 2012, a year later, it was announced the series would receive a print release under Media Factory’s MF Books imprint with illustrations done by a Pixiv user called Shirotaka.

A manga adaptation by Yuka Fujikawa began serialization in the June 2014 issue of Monthly Comic Flapper. Seven Seas Entertainment licensed the tankōbon volumes of the manga for localization in North America.

The company also has licensed the original light novels. On Syosetu’s rankings, the web novel has made cumulative appearances as the most popular work on the website. An anime television series adaptation by Studio Bind premiered in January 2021.

Mushoku Tensei Jobless Reincarnation Part 2: Plot

An unnamed 34-year-old Japanese NEET is evicted from his home following his parents’ death. Upon some self-introspection, he concludes that his life was ultimately pointless. He intercepts a speeding truck heading towards a group of teenagers in an attempt to do something meaningful for once in his life and manages to pull one of them out of harm’s way before dying.

Awakening in a baby’s body, he realizes he has been reincarnated in a world of sword and sorcery. He resolves to become successful in his new life, discarding his past identity for his new life as Rudeus Greyrat. Due to inherited affinity and early training, Rudeus becomes highly skilled at magic. During his childhood, he becomes a student of demon magician Roxy Migurdia, a friend to demihuman Sylphiette, and a magic teacher to noble heiress Eris Boreas Greyrat.

As Rudeus finally feels like he has found his place in the world, a major magical catastrophe destroys his nation, teleporting and stranding hundreds of thousands of people far from home – some into dangerous places or situations, resulting in their deaths due to murder, war, execution, monster attack, or exposure to the elements. Stranded practically on the other side of the world in a foreign land, Rudeus resolves to escort Eris home, aided by a strong warrior named Ruijerd Supardia who he has befriended.

During his thousands-of-miles-long journey, Rudeus is contacted by a mysterious, untrustworthy being calling itself the Human-God, who gives him questionable advice for an unknown agenda. After three years of struggle – including being defeated by an incredibly powerful world-class warrior named Orstead – Rudeus successfully escorts Eris home to the remains of his shattered homeland. Political events and a personal misunderstanding with Eris leave Rudeus heartbroken.

Two years later, the incident with Eris has made Rudeus impotent. He enrolls in Ronoa Magic University under the Human-God’s advice. There, he is reunited with Sylphiette, who heals his impotence, and the two are wedded shortly after. Rudeus rejoins his father’s quest to save his mother, ignoring the Human-God’s advice.

He reunited and developed a romantic relationship with Roxy during the adventure and takes her as his second wife. He is then visited by a dying future version of himself, warning him the Human-God will cause the deaths of everyone he cares about. To appease the Human-God, Rudeus feigns an attempt to kill Orsted, who is one of Human-God’s enemies but instead, Rudeus offers his allegiance to Orsted in exchange for his family’s protection. Shortly after, Rudeus takes Eris as his third wife.

The series continues episodically with a series of story arcs based around Rudeus work with Orsted to ensure the Human-God’s precise demise, as well as his daily life and growing family. After a large-scale attack on Rudeus’ life fails, the Human God gives up on his plans against him, opting to scheme against Rudeus’s descendants. Rudeus lives the rest of his life peacefully before his natural death at the age of 74.

Characters from Mushoku Tensei Jobless Reincarnation Part 2:

Main Characters from Mushoku Tensei Jobless Reincarnation Part 2:

    • Rudeus Greyrat Mushoku Tensei Jobless Reincarnation Part 2

    Before his reincarnation, he was an overweight 34-year-old Japanese NEET who became a recluse following his high school persecution. After his reincarnation, he discards his past identity and works to make his new life as Rudeus Greyrat meaningful. As such, he adopts a gentleman persona, though his past life’s perversion sometimes emerges and scares those around him.
    Since he retains his intelligence, Rudeus was able to start magic training at three and was able to learn how to cast magic without chanting; besides, he inherited the Laplace Factor from his parents and, combined with his youthful training, gives him a large magic capacity.
    Because Roxy Migurdia helped him overcome his fear of the outside world, he worships her like a god and ties his accomplishments to her. During his spare time, Rudeus makes figurines to enhance his earth magic, which has become his main offensive magic.
    In an alternate future, where the Human-God killed everyone he loved, a driven Rudeus fails to enact revenge and travels back in time to warn his past self instead. Because of his special reincarnation, Rudeus is immune to curses, allowing him to befriend Ruijerd Supardia and Orsted; this immunity is also passed down to his descendants.
  • Sylphiette Greyrat Mushoku Tensei Jobless Reincarnation Part 2

    Normally called “Sylphy”, she is Rudeus’ childhood friend who is part human, elf, and beast race. Due to her Laplace Factor, a genetic material granting its owners enhanced magical abilities if trained at a young age, her hair is green. Rudeus’ influence helped her learn how to cast magic without chanting.
    • Following the teleportation incident, her hair changes to white after exhausting her magic supply. Because of her magic abilities, she is assigned to be the bodyguard of Ariel Anemoi Asura under the identity of a male named

Fitz

    Due to the Asura Kingdom’s conflict for the crown, Ariel and her bodyguards enroll in Ronoa Magic University.
    • Sylphy has no maiden name and takes Rudeus’ name after becoming his first wife. She gives birth to a daughter named

Lucy Greyrat

    •  and a son named

Sieghart Saladin Greyrat.

  • Roxy Migurdia Mushoku Tensei Jobless Reincarnation Part 2

    A demon from the Migurdia species is known for its telepathy, blue hair, youthful appearance, and longevity. Because she can’t use telepathy, she leaves her village due to feeling isolated from her peers. Unable to make a stable living as an adventurer, she becomes a traveling tutor and eventually becomes Rudeus’ teacher.
    • After the teleportation incident, Roxy helps Paul search the world for survivors. She becomes Rudeus’ second wife after rescuing Zenith and gives birth to two daughters, Lily Greyrat and

Lara Greyrat

    who is the prophesied savior of the world.

 

  • Eris Boreas Greyrat Mushoku Tensei Jobless Reincarnation Part 2

A noble girl and distant relative of Rudeus. She is a tsundere with a short temper but has potential in the Sword-God style. During her journey to return home following the teleportation incident, she grows to love Rudeus.

When they admit their love for each other, Eris leaves to train to be worthy enough to be by his side. From her training, she becomes a proper swordsman who can control her temper and evaluate her opponents. She becomes Rudeus’ third wife and gives birth to a son named Ars Greyrat and a daughter called Christina Greyrat.

Greyrat Family Characters from Mushoku Tensei Jobless Reincarnation Part 2:

  • Paul Greyrat Mushoku Tensei Jobless Reincarnation Part 2

Paul’s first wife and Rudeus’ mother. She also left her noble home, the Lateria, due to its restrictive lifestyle, and sought to become an adventurer with her skills in healing magic. Paul saves her from people attempting to take advantage of her and she falls in love with him.

When Lillia becomes pregnant with Paul’s child, Rudeus convinces her to forgive them. After the teleportation incident, she is teleported into a magic crystal. Though Rudeus saves her, Zenith remains listless and unresponsive to outside stimuli though there are moments where she could express her thoughts. It is later revealed she is in a dreamlike state but is conscious of events around her and is enjoying her everyday life with Rudeus’ children.

  • Lillia Greyrat Mushoku Tensei Jobless Reincarnation Part 2

Originally Paul’s classmate in a swordsman dojo. A crippling injury forces her to leave her position as a princess guard, and she becomes a maid to Paul and Zenith. She later has an affair with Paul and becomes pregnant. After working through the revelation with the family, she is taken in as Paul’s second wife and becomes closer friends with Zenith. Rudeus’ behavior as an infant scared her, though she swears her loyalty to him after he helps her to reconcile with Zenith.

  • Norn Greyrat Mushoku Tensei Jobless Reincarnation Part 2

Zenith’s daughter and Rudeus’ younger sister. She was with Paul after the teleportation incident and loved him dearly. When Rudeus fights Paul, she becomes fearful of him.

Lacking the magic to create figurines, Zanoba buys a young female dwarf named Juliet to forge his creations for him. Later, Zanoba comes into possession of an automated doll and uses it as research. He and Rudeus form a powerful bond of friendship and mutual respect, and he quickly becomes one of Rudeus’ best friends and most trusted allies.

An elf and Sylphiette’s grandmother. She was teleported into a magic crystal 200 years ago and had no memories of her former life. Because of this, she was cursed and required sex to disperse the magic built up inside her. As a result, her children suffered and scorned her, causing her to distance herself from them.

She was Paul’s former comrade and was part of Roxy’s search party to help her look for Rudeus after his disappearance before she enrolled in the university with Rudeus to prey on the males. Touched by Cliff’s earnest confession, the two begin dating, eventually leading to marriage and a child.

Review of Mushoku Tensei Jobless Reincarnation Part 2:

Oct 5, 2021
pub_scrubs (All reviews)

A rare case where the sequel is an improvement from the previous cour/season. Mushoku Tensei Jobless Reincarnation Part 2 is the first isekai that truly won my attention.

From the art and sound production, it’s obvious that a lot of dedication is put into it. Even the background is full of detail and can be considered as art itself. The main character itself, be it Rudeus, Eris or Ruijerd is full of life and each has its own motivation. Also, watching the main MC growth is interesting too, you can see that Rudeus and Eris have grown a bit taller and Rudeus’s voice is getting heavier (puberty). This creates a sense of continuity that not much other anime has.

Other than that, there’s still not much to say about this cour since as the writing of this review, it’s only been 1 episode. Really looking forward to each Sunday.

Storyline:

“A mysterious group called Humarize strongly believes in the Quirk Singularity Doomsday Theory, which states that as quirks get mixed further in with future generations, that power will bring forth an end to humanity. They believe quirks are a disease and aim to cleanse the world of anyone who possesses quirks.

They have planted Ideo Trigger Bombs in various countries all around the world that forces a user’s quirk to go ballistic and cause mass destruction. In order to save everyone, the Pro-Heroes are the world ask the UA Academy heroes in training to assist them and for a World-Class Selected Hero Team. Their objective is to stop the bombs around the world.

Deku, Bakugou, and Todoroki, who is currently interning at Endeavor’s Agency, are called forth to go to a far-away country called Oseon. However, during the operation, Deku gets involved in an event that causes him to become one of the world’s most wanted criminals. Within this chaos, the group Humarize announces to the world that they were behind this and the ‘time limit is 2 hours.’

It is up to the Heroes to save the world and the future of heroes in what is the most dangerous crisis to take place yet in the Boku no Hero Academia story!”

The Heike Story 2021

The Heike Story 2021

Before Watching The Heike Story, Here is Everything You Need to Know:

A young orphan named Biwa is taken in by the powerful Taira Clan—also known as the Heike—after their leader witnesses her extraordinary psychic abilities. Unfortunately, what she predicts is a future of bloodshed, violence, and civil war. The Heike Story is based on Hideo Furukawa‘s Heike Monogatari novel.

To begin with, this main character doesn’t exist in the original story, which is actually a collection of oral tales told by the blind Biwa Houshi storyteller monks.  They were compiled in written form in the 14th Century, and this series is loosely based on the translation by Furukawa Hideo (who also wrote the Heike-themed novel Yuasa Masaaki’s upcoming film Inu-oh is based on) – the first ever to present Heike Monogatari in modern Japanese.

In Japan, this is a very important series, where the source material is universally known and taught in schools.  The two species of Japanese firefly are called the Heike and the Genji after the Taira and Minamoto clans (Heike and Genji are alternative Kanji readings).  It must be said that this is “Heike Monogatari” – it’s the story of the Taira, not the Minamoto who battled them.

But the source material takes the form of a Buddhist parable, lessons on impermanence and arrogance and cruelty and forgiveness.  It judges, but it doesn’t take sides.  This anime can take many liberties (and already is) and still succeed, but that’s one element that it absolutely cannot twist around.  That’s the third rail.

The director is Yamada Naoko, one of the great lions of Kyoto Animation.  When one of those lions leaves KyoAni – especially now – that’s news.  The writer is Yoshida Reiko, who should certainly need no introduction to anime fans as she’s one of the foremost writers in the industry.

The music (and ED) is by Ushio Kensuke, outside of anime known by the stage name of agraph, and one of the most respected composers in the medium.  It’s a stellar group, and we know Science SARU is capable of great work.  We also know they’ve been in the news for adverse working conditions, and the cratering of the Nihon Chinbotsu 2020 production is evidence it’s been happening for a while.  In that sense, this show is a crapshoot.

The Heike Story Synopsis:

A young orphan named Biwa is taken in by the powerful Taira Clan—also known as the Heike—after their leader witnesses her extraordinary psychic abilities. Unfortunately, what she predicts is a future of bloodshed, violence, and civil war.

While I would obviously prefer it if Yoshida and Yamada had played it straight, they’ve chosen to recast the story around the original character of Biwa (Aoi Yuuki).  She’s the daughter of a blind man, presumably a Biwa Houshi, who’s killed by the Kaburo – the roving band of Taira pageboys who roamed the capital searching for offenses against the clan.

She also has one blue eye which can see the future, something her father forbade her to do.  That eye has seems the decline and fall of the Heike, which makes little sense given that they were at the height of power – dominating the imperial court, the military, and the provinces.

The Heike is centered around Taira no Kiyomori, the ambitious and fearless family head who shepherded the clan’s rise to power in the wake of their success suppressing the Hougen Rebellion.  He’s planning to move to Fukuhara – present-day Kobe (about 30 minutes by Shinkansen but a day’s ride in the Heian Era) to build a deep-water port and expand the clan’s wealth and power through trade.

He’s also planning to build an audacious shrine on the water at Miyajima, which would become Itsukushima Jinja – now a hugely popular pilgrimage site and tourist attraction.  He turns affairs in Kyoto over to eldest son Shigemori.  He also has a roving blue eye – though there’s no historical record of that actually being the case.

Eventually, the orphaned Biwa turns up at the Taira estate in Kyoto – to gloat, perhaps – but Shigemori sees the bond between them and takes a shine to her.  He takes her in as his ward alongside his four sons, the most important of which are the cultured eldest Koremori and second son Sukemori.

It’s he who sets off the event which many consider the start of the Heike’s declining fortunes by accidentally disrespecting the emperor’s regent, causing the regent to order him savagely beaten.

Shigemori is content to apologize and move on, but Kiyomori has other ideas and humiliates the regent and his men by surrounding their procession and forcing them to cut off their topknots.  The emperor is unsurprisingly less than pleased.

The Heike Story First Impressions:

So, for all that, how does this premiere episode actually work?  It’s superb for the most part – not quite transcendent, but certainly classy and often visually stunning.  If you’re going to shoehorn an original protagonist in, getting Aoi Yuuki doesn’t hurt, as she’s one of the best seiyuu around – but I still have my doubts about Biwa.

The cast seems strong generally, the music is lovely, and the direction and animation are quite striking.  It plays as more Science SARU than Kyoto Animation but there are elements of Yamada’s signature that slip through.  She employs a lot of live-action (her first love) techniques, and generally favors looseness and snap over gently flowing classicism.

There was almost no way Heike Monogatari wasn’t going to be an order of magnitude more interesting than most anime, and it is.  It can’t really be judged by the usual standard because it’s not trying to do things TV anime often do.

There are legit questions about Science SARU’s ability to sustain production, and if the reports of 11 episodes are true that’s not nearly enough time to do the source material justice – if indeed that’s something Yamada and Yoshida intend to try to do.

There’s also the matter of whether their original twist on a peerless source material will work, and we won’t know that answer for a while.  But this is certainly something special, something important, and something unique in anime.  Let’s hope we look back on it as something great, too.

Reviews of the First Episode of The Heike Story:

1. Review of The Heike Story Episode 1

Caitlin Moore
Rating: 5/5

For a while, I felt like one of a very small contingent of anime fans who didn’t care for Naoko Yamada‘s work. I found K-ON insipid, never got into Tamako Market, and couldn’t make it all the way through A Silent Voice even though I liked the manga.

However, when Heike Story was announced only a few short weeks before its premiere, I found myself intrigued – what would Yamada’s direction look like outside of Kyoto Animation‘s fairly limited aesthetic palette, at the more avant-garde studio Science SARU? What would result from a female director best known for intimate, female-focused stories, taking on a centuries-old military epic?

Turns out, whatever it is, I’m into it in a big way.

I’m not going to pretend to have more than the slightest familiarity with The Tale of Heike, the story of the multi-generational conflict between the Taira and Minamoto clans that rocked Heian-era Japan. That sentence right there?

That’s pretty much all I know, and even then I gleaned it from Wikipedia just before watching the episode. However, something tells me it’s not about a gender non-conforming biwa (Japanese lute) player that Shigemori, the son of the Taira patriarch, took in after his family’s thugs killed their father. And yet, here we are.

This is the kind of series where I could easily write an entire essay based just on the first episode; for someone like me, who loves critically analyzing anime, it’s practically a feast even as it’s clear to me that my ignorance of the source material will limit my understanding of even a loose adaptation like this.

Through Biwa, Yamada, and the veteran screenwriter, Reiko Yoshida looks to be challenging this ancient story of high-born masculine values with characters that exist on the margins of a highly patriarchal society.

What’s more, I feel like I finally get what the big fuss over Yamada is about. The close attention to body language — yes, including feet — deliberate frame composition and camera focus, and melding of sight and sound that she’s developed a reputation for are all on display here, with grittier art and storytelling that may very well appeal to those of us who always found KyoAni’s style a little too highly polished and distancing.

The voice cast is nothing but all-stars, from old-timers like Shigeru Chiba and Kikuko Inoue to more recently prominent names like Saori Hayami and Aoi Yūki.

Heike Story kicks off the fall season in an unbelievably powerful way, and the premieres that follow will be hard-pressed to meet its high bar. I can’t wait to see where it goes.

2. Review of The Heike Story Episode 1

Nicholas Dupree
Rating: 4/5

I’m of two major impressions on The Heike Story, as of their first two episodes. On the one hand, I feel decidedly under-educated and too out of the loop to understand its nuts & bolts story right now. I have no familiarity with the epic literature it’s adapting and/or re-imagining, and only a passing understanding of the history it’s built around.

Much of my experience with this early premiere was just piecing together the basics of the political jockeying going on around Biwa and her new family. I gather there’s a powerful family known as the Heike who have built considerable but controversial influence in the government, there are dueling alliances within the said family, and a strong undertone of the struggle between law and religion broiling underneath it all.

I imagine (and hope) things will get clearer as the series The Heike Story continues, but it has no patience for holding my hand, so I better start building a character chart to keep names straight, as right now the only way I can tell the two different bald old guys apart is by the width of their eyebrows.

Usually feeling that in over my head would be alienating for getting into a new show, and that’s partially true, but it’s largely counteracted by the sheer atmosphere and personality of the production. Naoko Yamada may be working with a new team and house style at Science SARU, but her dedication to delicate and expressive character animation is unmistakable.

SARU’s previous works have been generally experimental, often minimalist with their art design, but could at times feel too abstract or alienating in their simplicity. Here, combined with the warmth and humanity Yamada’s directorial eye brings, Heike Story is absolutely dripping with a welcoming, enveloping atmosphere.

Characters move and emote with an abiding gentleness that resonates through the screen in its strongest moments, so even if I don’t fully grok the particulars of what characters are talking about, the emotions at play are never in question.

That’s especially true of Biwa, the prophetic little girl at the center of this show, whom I gather is an addition unique to this production. Her visions of the future make for startling contrasts to the relatively peaceful and static present, most especially as her foresight gets the best of her at the end of episode two, and the violent destiny of her adoptive aunt plays out in chaotic snippets.

It’s that understated yet inescapable harshness that really sells the otherwise contemplative storytelling so far. The Heike Story may play at times like a dry political account, but Biwa’s prophecies and her fear assure us there is tumult on the horizon that will tear these pastoral moments to shreds far too soon. And with how human even the least developed of the cast feel already, that’s sure to be both heartbreaking and enthralling.

Altogether, I was very much taken by this The Heike Story premiere, even if I would struggle to explain the actual plot. But the magic of animation is that, with the right delivery, you can overcome near any culture gap and become enthralled nonetheless. And with production as rock-solid as we have here, this is definitely one to watch.

The Heike Story is one of the classics of Japanese literature. It is a historical epic set in the twelfth century that follows the Taira family’s rise to power and subsequent fall to ruin. On one hand, it is a heroic story filled with all the fighting and drama you would expect. On the other hand, it is also a story centered on Buddhist themes such as duty and Dharma.

One interesting thing about the original tale is that it is part of an oral storytelling tradition—that of the Biwa Hōshi. The Biwa Hōshi played their lute-like biwa instruments as they recited the tale across the centuries, which brings us to The Heike Story. The anime is told from the viewpoint of our fictional protagonist “Biwa”—the young Biwa Hōshi who would go on to create the epic after living through it.

The first episode of The Heike Story introduces us to Biwa, explaining her past and how she becomes involved in the story. Biwa is a surprisingly complex character. She is torn between wanting revenge for her murdered father and the kindness Shigemori gives to her.

More than that, the two share a true emotional connection due to their supernatural eyes; Shigemori is perhaps the only one that can understand the pain and loneliness that comes from seeing what others can’t. Thus, the anime clearly establishes Biwa’s dilemma from the start: does she do nothing and get her revenge on the Taira, or does she fight fate and try to save the one Taira worth saving?

The second episode of The Heike Story is where it gets personal. As country-changing events happen around her, Biwa gets something she thought she lost: a family. Through her relationship with Tokuko, she comes to accept those good things can happen in the future.

Moreover, both she and Shigemori learn to appreciate the present despite being haunted by specters of the past and visions of the future. It’s both a heart-wrenching and beautiful episode. However, it also highlights the glaring issue with the series The Heike Story.

While the emotional core of the series is easy to understand, the political ongoings are not. Names, places, priest orders, familial relationships, means of punishment, and asking for forgiveness—all of this is treated as if it’s obvious common knowledge.

And while this may be less of an issue to the average Japanese viewer thanks to general education and cultural osmosis, it’s a barrier to entry for the rest of us. Honestly, to get the most out of this show The Heike Story, you’ll likely need to pause constantly to take notes. Still, that’s a small price to pay for an amazing retelling of one of Japan’s great classics.
