Links are NOT allowed. Format your description nicely so people can easily read them. Please use proper spacing and paragraphs.

A 34-year-old NEET otaku, chased out from his house by his family, found that his life is reaching a dead end. He then recalled that his life could actually have been much better if he had made better choices in the past.

Just when he was at the point of regret, he saw a truck moving at fast speed, and three high schoolers in its path. Mustering all the strength he had, he tried to save them and ended getting run over by the truck, quickly ending his life.

The next time he opened his eyes, he is reincarnated to a world of sword and magic as Rudeus Greyrat. Born to a new world, a new life, Rudeus decided that, “This time, I’ll really live my life to the fullest with no regret!” Thus starts the journey of a man yearning to restart his life.

readily... the best LN I have ever read. I have read tons of LN. they gave me satisfying endings and some meh... but this one. this one is just more or less... above spice and wolf. if you have ever read S&W. then trust me. this isn’t sh*t. i’m a very picky reader. once I get turn off. I insta_drop the LN. so if I say this is good. then you can trust that this is dope. how can you not like this?! that’s all thank you.

My favorite Light novel; there are others I really like such as kuro no maou and konosuba, but mushoku tensei has one thing direly needed to all series and yet to come for those: a proper end. Also, it's pleasing to see proper character building. Furthermore, for all the immature waifu clusters found under the harem tag, mushoku way is the only way to go about harem I can accept. Do give it a try, even if the beginning can be off-putting.

This is probably the best JP WN I have read so far, and the only one that kept me interested to the end. The MC is a pervert you can relate to, with good character development and a frame of mind that is not offensive most of the time. The world seems simplistic, but it adds to the story with travels and many different cultures. The MC is not a master at everything he touches. Which is nice. Plot armor is not obvious since the adventures leave some scars behind... more>> (can't/shouldn't spoil). Also the entourage around MC is comprised of really likable characters each one with his own depth of development.

Really you can't go wrong with Mushoku Tensei. It is just THAT good. (Again, for a JP WN). <<less

I like this story. Heart warming slice of life Rudeus who is former NEET become Riajuu. Conflict in this story is attractive and sometimes make me feel tense.

For MC character, I like him too. Even he is certainly total pervert, he didn't wild and hit every women he knows (ex: underage girl, sister/girl with lineage with him, another girl even with tempted body). He choose hareem path with every girl who have mutual love with him and under certain circumstance. I can say he is inside of border common sense.

By far the best LN of all time, bar none. This series has the greatest world building of any LN or WN series I've ever read, and honestly, it can compare to top tier fantasy series like Wheel of Time, Lord of the Rings, A Song of Ice and Fire etc when it comes to world building and character building.

An absolutely amazing series

Personally I didntlike it much becauseit felt like the first part (s) of the story were missing reading it. Also I dont like depressing based stories much which was kind of the whole intro so far, him looking for his mom from an refugee incident with his background/development skipped. Also I didnt like how the characters looked reading/seeing yhe words/images. The book still was nicely written justnot for my taste.

I think this novel addressed to depressed people.

the MC personality reflected commoner in our world which depressed because of appearance or social interaction.

this traditional reincarnation novel really is the best from other traditional novel. MC is not as OP as we though (large pool of mana) because there is Dragon god orsted and sword god. The encouragement to MC from his wife or side character really touching for depressed people.

the author is thoroughly with his work. This novel is like fantasy biography of certain man. And also there is... more>> a history book at the end of LN which make it like biography <<less

Though the main character is a bit too lecherous, his struggle was real.

I mean, his fears were always there and he was human enough to admit he was not perfect, but always searched for the best possible solution for him and those he loved.

A good novel to pass the time, with romance, angst and funny moments everywhere.

Well translated and great to read.

Thanks to the author and translators for their work.
