Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation - Episode 22 Review - Ruijerd Parts Ways with Rudeus and Eris

Warning: Spoilers ahead.

This ep follows Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation - Episode 21. And it was mostly serious and depressing.

It starts with a dream that Rudeus is having. All his loved ones are there. Like Sauros, his dad Paul, his mom Zenith. Sylphie. Roxy. Everyone from his home that he loves. Then they disappear, he turns into his old former self, and Orsted punches a hole through him. After being nearly killed, that last part is understandable.

He wakes up. Eris is sleeping but Ruijerd is awake. Ruijerd asks about Man-God, who Rudy was stupid enough to blurt out in the last ep. So Rudeus finally confesses about him. And says that his Superd curse is going away. He just needs to do hard work. As he has been doing. Ruijerd tries to hide it, but Rudeus notices the relief and excitement that Ruijerd is being overwhelmed with after hearing this news.

After some traveling, Rudeus, Eris and Ruijerd make it back to Rudeus’ parents’ home. For some reason in the fear years that have passed, the home has been completely torn down. The land is also completely ravaged.

This is also where Ruijerd decides to part ways with Eris and Rudeus. I think that’s the promise they made. It’s a heartfelt goodbye, and Ruijerd thanks Rudeus for everything. I expect they’ll reunite in the future, so I’m not too sad. But the harder part of the ep is coming up.

Eris and Rudeus get back to Eris’ castle town, which is also torn down. All that stands now are tents and a small area of survivors living there. But they’re relieved to find Ghislaine there!

Eris is ready to receive the painful news from the butler Alphonse. Sauros, Phillip and Hilda Greyrat are all dead. We knew Sauros was executed but hearing the others died too was surprising. I thought they were going to develop Hilda more - she had big oppai, and it seemed like there was going to be more to learn about her since she was mostly a quiet character.

And some scumbag, Lord Pilemon Notos Greyrat, wants to take Eris as his concubine. I guess that guy has resources, and doing as he says would help save the people of Eris’ region.

Ghislaine objects to this, but Alphonse believes it’s necessary. Eris needs time alone to think. So they all leave, and Rudeus hears her cry.

Ghislaine and Rudy take a look at the list of missing and dead. Sylphie seems to be found, and alive, but her whereabouts are unknown.

At night Eris is dressed all sexy and visits Rudeus’ tent. As a birthday gift for turning 15, she says she wants a family. Then she seduces Rudeus, even though he hasn’t turned 15 yet, like they promised. He finally gives in when she says she wants to have his kittens. They have sex!

But the next morning, Rudeus wakes up to find Eris gone, leaving with Ghislaine. And she didn’t say where she’s going. Rudeus feels dumped/abandoned. And cries.
