Mushoku Tensei Light novel


A 34-year-old NEET otaku was chased out from his house by his family. This virgin, plump, unattractive, and penniless nice guy found that his life was heading towards a dead end. He recalled that his life could actually become much better if he can get over the dark history of his life.

Just when he was at the point of regret, he saw a truck moving at a high speed with 3 high school students in its path. Mustering all his strength, he saves them but ended up getting run over by the truck which kills him.

The next time he opened his eyes, he was reincarnated to a world of sword and magic as Rudeus Greyrat. Born to a new world with a new life, Rudeus declared, “This time, I’ll really live my life to the fullest with no regret!” Thus begins the journey of a newly made man. (Original from

      1 is a novel from the web & other is in book form like manga~
      But Harry Potter books can’t be labeled as LIGHT novel cos the sizes are more like Dictornary~


  5. lolred says:

    This one is already translated by baka tsuki up to 21 volume


  6. dennis says:

    can some one tell me why some of the chapters say preview on baka tsuki


  7. dennis says:

    thank you, do you know of any place that has high quality scans of the novel i’m reading.


  8. dumax01 says:

    This is great! I love this LN. Thank you, Tensai, for your hard work.

    TensaiTranslations, I came across this question reading the novel. I have heard that a lot of LN translations are not good, but so far I don’t have any complaints. Contrary, it’s splendid. You guys sure make professional translations. Sometimes I even need to use dictionary, because there is a lot of fancy words, like adverbs and adjectives. Though, It’s my lack of knowledge, it really makes the novel flow of text better and more enjoyable.

    P.S. I’m reading Mushoku Tensei on Baka-Tsuki, but it’s Tensai translations there, isn’t it?

  10. Are there no illustration from Volume 7 on because these are “only” web novel ?


    • tensaiz says:

      Hmm, I think he translations we did in Mushoku were Light novel. But we only had the raws as text, not sure if there are any pictures. There should be though, somewhere!


  11. Sid says:

    Thanks for translating the light novel version.
    BTW, where is the chapters for 2nd volume? Did you guys only translate the 3rd volume?
    Also, what is the differences between web novel and light novel version? Does the LN have other arcs or new characters? (that’s usually the case like in tate no yuusha and konjiki no moji tsukai/konjiki no wordmaster)


    • Tensaiz says:

      We only translated those chapters ^^


      • Sid says:

        I see, thanks for reply.. ^ ^
        BTW, did you notice any significant differences between WN and LN?
        I sometimes fuss over the details like whether some events only exist in WN and characters that only appear in LN (kinda like how director’s cut and original movie differs or how PS and XBOX game differs)


        • Tensaiz says:

          Ahh, I haven’t really read any light novel versions at all. I try to always read the WN because that’s what the original author wrote, so it’s the original version, which I’d rather read.


  12. shuffling505 says:

    If you want to read the whole thing then go here as it has nearly finished.


  13. This is really good but after volume 3 mc is becoming more and more annoying. Overall story is good but its bit annoying that mc is increasingly acting like perverted old man (tough that’s what he basically is).


  14. soren says:

    What’s the differemce in story between the web novel and light novel and this is the light novel right? and the web is on Baka Tsuki?


    • Tensaiz says:

      The light novel has been edited and some parts have been changed from the web novel. The chapters we did have been uploaded on Baka Tsuki too, so they’re the same as the other chapters on there. Not sure if it’s LN of WN though.


  15. can you tell me the name of the blonde hair girl put in the right and left of this web ?? or the link of the picture ?? thank you


  16. Alex Kehling says:

    Would like to mention that I could swear that a website already has more then 10 vols of this…unless this is somehow different.
    Also…love this due to how comedic it can get…and seriousness.


    • Tensaiz says:

      Yeah, check ” baka-tsuki “, we uploaded these chapters on baka-tsuki when it was being translated to help out. We also posted them here as a sort of logg.
