“Work Information for ‘Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation’

  • Overview of Mushoku Tensei:
    ‘Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation’ is a fantasy work set in another world that was serialized on the novel submission site ‘Shōsetsuka ni Narō’ (Let’s Become Novelists) between 2012 and 2015. During its initial serialization, contemporary fantasy was a dominant genre in the light novel community. However, defying this trend, ‘Mushoku Tensei’ became the first work to incorporate the setting of reincarnation into another world, which later became synonymous with the ‘Narou genre’ (web novels serialized on ‘Shōsetsuka ni Narō’), earning it the title of the ‘Narou genre’s representative.’ 
     The web version of ‘Mushoku Tensei’ gained immense popularity, leading to its adaptation into both a novel series and a manga series starting in 2014. Subsequently, the work has been actively developed through various media, including spin-off manga by the original author Rifujin na Magonote, and in 2021, the series was adapted into an anime.”

“Synopsis of ‘Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation’

The protagonist, Rudeus Greyrat, is reincarnated into a different world while retaining memories of his past life. Driven by regrets from his previous life, he resolves to live diligently and undergoes significant growth. Utilizing his memories from his past life, Rudeus demonstrates excellence from a young age, thanks to his proactive actions. A turning point in his life arrives when he gains two younger sisters, Norn and Aisha, born when he is six years old.”

“Aisha’s Profile

Aisha is the half-sister of the protagonist Rudeus. She is the result of an affair between Rudeus’s father, Paul, and Lilia during his mother Zenith’s pregnancy. Through Rudeus’s resourcefulness, Aisha became a part of their family and began living with them. Although Rudeus became the tutor for Eris, they were separated, but due to the Fittoa territory transfer incident, they ended up being separated from their family once again.

Primarily raised as a maid under the guidance of her mother Lilia, Aisha continued to serve as a maid even after growing up, managing household chores and responsibilities. Other known details about her profile include having the same chestnut hair color as Paul (illustrations depict her with the same hair color as Lilia), and she typically ties her hair in a ponytail.”

“Controversy Surrounding Aisha’s Elopement and Spoilers from the Side Story

Spoiler #1: Rudeus Hearing Aisha’s Moaning

“This revelation leaves Rudeus astounded, as he realizes that Aisha is involved with none other than Ars, the son of Rudeus and Eris. Startled by the discovery, Rudeus unintentionally opens the door. The scene that unfolds before Rudeus’s eyes is one of Aisha and Ars, both completely naked and engaged in an intimate act. Rudeus is momentarily taken aback by this unexpected sight, causing him to freeze in shock. After a brief moment of processing the situation, Rudeus regains his composure. He addresses the two, instructing them to finish up and join him in the living room after taking a bath. With that, Rudeus leaves the room behind, leaving Aisha and Ars to themselves. This particular scene, depicting Aisha’s involvement in an intimate encounter with Ars, sparked considerable controversy and debate among fans of Mushoku Tensei. Due to the explicit content and its departure from the series’ established themes, the discussions and reactions played a significant role in the eventual decision to remove this side story from the series.”

“Spoiler #2: Urgent Family Meeting

On that evening, Rudeus calls an emergency family meeting, gathering Silphy, Roxy, Eris, Lilia, as well as the involved parties, Aisha and Ars. As Rudeus seeks to confirm the truth, Lilia’s face gradually pales as the conversation unfolds. In response to the family’s inquiries, Aisha provides explanations, while Ars remains subdued.

Aisha’s explanation centers around the claim that her actions were in preparation for Ars’s future with women, and Rudeus and Lilia are on the verge of accepting it. However, it’s Silphy who interrupts, revealing that she had quietly noticed Aisha and Ars’s relationship. Silphy points out inconsistencies in Aisha’s story, and tensions rise further when Eris, who had been listening silently all along, can no longer contain her frustration and lashes out by physically striking Ars. As a result, Aisha eventually admits that Ars’s feelings for her are genuine.

Aisha then pleads for their understanding, requesting permission for marriage once Ars has come of age. Rudeus grapples with his decision, but ultimately, his response is a firm refusal. While visibly shocked, Aisha offers her apologies before the family meeting concludes.”

This segment of the story showcases the intense family dynamics and conflicts surrounding the relationship between Aisha and Ars. The controversial nature of this subplot led to discussions and debates among fans and contributed to the decision to remove it from the series.

“Spoiler #3: Aisha and Ars’s Elopement

After the family meeting concludes, Rudeus engages in a discussion with his three wives. It is during this conversation that Rudeus reveals, for the first time, his status as a reincarnated individual. He explains that remnants of his past life’s Japanese values still influence him, and he struggles to accept the romantic relationship between his nephew and aunt on an instinctual level. However, he also attempts to convey his understanding to Aisha and Ars.

Particularly concerning to Rudeus and the others was the fact that Ars was still quite young. At the time, Aisha was 25 years old, while Ars was merely 11. Ultimately, Rudeus proposes a solution: Ars would attend the national school of the Asura Kingdom, living in the dormitories to create distance between him and Aisha. After graduation, if Ars still professed his love for Aisha, their marriage would be considered. However, the following morning, before Rudeus could relay this decision, both Aisha and Ars disappear, leaving behind a single letter.

The letter, left in lieu of their presence, contains just one line: ‘We will live together.’ With this, Aisha and Ars embark on an elopement, choosing to be together despite the challenges and obstacles that lay ahead.”

This storyline showcases the emotional turmoil within the family and the drastic actions taken by Aisha and Ars in response to the situation. It’s important to note that this subplot played a significant role in the controversy surrounding ‘Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation.’

“Spoiler #4: Search for Aisha and Ars

Upon discovering the letter, Rudeus initiates a search for Aisha and Ars. He employs every available resource, seeking help from various connections to locate Aisha. Despite their best efforts, Aisha remains untraceable. Unknown to Rudeus, Aisha had been manipulating information to evade detection. Her determination was so resolute that it caused Aisha’s mother, Lilia, to fall ill due to the stress.

Through Rudeus and his family’s determined search, they finally uncover that Aisha and Ars have been hiding in a small village. By the time their location is revealed, a year has passed since Aisha and Ars’s elopement.”

The ongoing search for Aisha and Ars highlights the intricate twists and turns in their story, showcasing the lengths Rudeus and his family are willing to go to bring them back. This narrative development contributes to the evolving drama of ‘Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation.’

“Spoiler #5: Battle Between Ars and Eris

Accompanied by his three wives, Rudeus visits the small village and confronts Ars, who is waiting in front of a house. Over the course of the year since their elopement, Ars has grown and is resolute in expressing his feelings to Aisha, determined to keep Rudeus and the others from intervening. This leads to a confrontation between Ars and Eris, as Eris steps forward to confront him. However, the battle is decidedly one-sided, and Eris manages to sever Ars’s arm in the heat of the fight.

Undeterred, Ars stands his ground, refusing to yield. Recognizing Ars’s growth, Rudeus ultimately steps in and instructs the three wives to handle Ars while he enters the house alone. As a side note, it’s worth mentioning that Ars’s injured arm is later healed using healing magic.”

This dramatic showdown highlights the emotional conflicts and challenges within the family, as well as the growth and determination of the characters involved. The battle between Ars and Eris is a pivotal moment in the story of ‘Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation.’

“Spoiler #6: Aisha’s Pregnancy

Upon entering the house, Rudeus is once again met with a shocking sight. Aisha’s belly has grown noticeably larger, indicating that she is pregnant. In fact, the reason Aisha and Ars were eventually located was due to Aisha’s pregnancy making it difficult for them to move around unnoticed. Rudeus finds himself in a conversation with Aisha.

Aisha deeply reflects on her elopement and expresses remorse, willing to accept any punishment that comes her way. However, she also makes a plea. Aisha asks Rudeus to forgive Ars and to recognize the life of the child she is carrying. Her requests are twofold: to “forgive Ars” and to “acknowledge the child’s life.” In response, Rudeus informs Aisha that he had already come to accept their relationship during the year of their search.

But Rudeus also sets his own conditions. One condition is that marriage will not be permitted until Ars comes of age, and he also requires Ars to resume his education. Additionally, Aisha, who desires to receive punishment, will be disowned from the Greyrat family. After giving birth, Aisha will leave the Greyrat family and attend the royal school of the Asura Kingdom.

Once Ars reaches adulthood and is acknowledged by both Rudeus and Eris as being capable, a decision is reached: they will be free to pursue their relationship. With this agreement, the chapter of Aisha and Ars’s elopement comes to a close.”

This development marks a significant turning point in the story, as the characters grapple with complex emotions, decisions, and the consequences of their actions. The resolution of Aisha and Ars’s elopement drama contributes to the overarching narrative of ‘Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation.’

“Spoiler #7: The Name of Aisha and Ars’s Child

Following these events, the child born to Aisha and Ars is named Lurie. As promised, after Lurie’s birth, Aisha leaves the Greyrat family to attend the royal school of the Asura Kingdom. Four years later, Ars reaches adulthood and excels in both swordsmanship and magic, reaching high levels of proficiency.

During this time, Aisha graduates from school and begins working under Ariel in the Asura Kingdom. Aisha strives to understand people’s emotions while working. Once Ars is recognized as capable and independent, he goes to fetch Aisha, and together with Lurie, they leave to purchase a home near Shirayuki. The three of them establish a life together in their new home.”

This conclusion to Aisha and Ars’s story showcases the growth and development of the characters, the fulfillment of promises, and the eventual harmonious resolution they achieve. It also reflects the central theme of family and bonds within ‘Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation.’

Reason for Removal of Aisha’s Side Story in “Mushoku Tensei”

As mentioned earlier in the provided information, the side story involving Aisha, often referred to as the “Aisha Arc,” was indeed a shocking episode within the series. However, as of January 2023, this side story has been removed from the publishing platform “Shousetsuka ni Narou” (Let’s Become Novelists), where it was originally posted. The author of “Mushoku Tensei,” Rifujin na Magonote, was initially open to making necessary revisions based on reader feedback even after episodes were published. However, even Rifujin na Magonote struggled with the aftermath of the Aisha Arc.

The content of the Aisha Arc, depicting a physical relationship between an aunt and her nephew, was inevitably met with both support and opposition. Additionally, factors such as the age difference between Aisha and Ars contributed to the controversy, leading to a backlash against Aisha’s character. Particularly, the initial draft of the content was deemed problematic, as it was interpreted by some as Aisha manipulating Ars, adding to the reasons for the controversy.

In response to the controversy, Rifujin na Magonote made efforts to modify the content to be less provocative, but it proved challenging to alter the initial impressions and perceptions of the arc, given the sensitive themes it dealt with.

However, the controversy surrounding the Aisha Arc is just one aspect of the reason for its removal. The ultimate cause for the deletion of the Aisha Arc was a violation of the usage terms and conditions of the “Shousetsuka ni Narou” platform. At the time of the violation notice, the entire side story containing the Aisha Arc was made unavailable to the public. Ultimately, Rifujin na Magonote made the decision to remove the Aisha Arc, and it was subsequently removed from the larger side story altogether.

Is there a fish print (web archive) of Aisha’s extra chapter?

As of January 2023, the extra chapter involving Aisha that was removed from the ‘Narou’ website due to notifications from the site’s administration cannot be read on the ‘Narou’ site. However, there are web archive sites that automatically archive (take a fish print of) deleted pages, which might allow you to read the content.

It’s important to note that even with these fish prints, they might not reflect the initial draft. The content may include revisions made by the author Rifujin na Magonote before the decision to remove it. The initial draft is said to have been swiftly corrected by Rifujin na Magonote and might not be prominently available.

Did Aisha’s extra chapter’s elopement storyline get erased?

Following the removal of Aisha’s chapter, there was speculation among readers about whether the removal implied that the events in the chapter were completely disregarded. However, it has been clarified that the events have not been completely erased from the story, despite the removal of the chapter.

In a later published episode after the removal of Aisha’s chapter, specifically in the 25th episode of the Nana Hoshi’s Gourmet side story titled “Sandwich,” there is a depiction of Aisha and Ars’ elopement. In this episode, Nana Hoshi lightly mentions it in conversation with Rudeus, and while the details of Aisha and Ars’ elopement are not explicitly mentioned, it is established that the elopement did take place. So, while the specific details might not be as clear, the elopement itself remains part of the story.

Will there be a novel version of Aisha’s extra chapter?

“Jobless Reincarnation” concluded its main series with the release of Volume 26 in November 2022, and it was announced that there would be a novelization of the after-story episodes in the form of extra chapters. This has raised the question of whether the web version of the Aisha chapter, which was removed, will be included in the novel version of the extra chapters.

Regarding the novelization of the extra chapters, the original author, Rifujin na Magonote, has made comments, but there has been no mention of the Aisha chapter specifically. As of January 2023, it remains unclear what will happen to the Aisha chapter. Given that the Aisha chapter originally contained controversial content, it is unlikely to be directly included in the novel version. If it were to be included, it might be significantly toned down or mentioned only to a limited extent.

Aisha’s Personality

Aisha typically behaves in a cheerful manner, but she has a reserved side to her personality. Having received exceptional maid training from her mother, Rilia, she has displayed a sense of composure beyond her years since her childhood. Essentially, she possesses a carefree nature and dislikes being constrained. She enjoys her role as a maid, partly because it allows her to avoid being nitpicked by adults about her actions.

Relationship Between Aisha and Rudeus

Initially, Aisha had no acquaintance with Rudeus and held a resistant attitude towards him. The reason for this lack of familiarity was that Rudeus had left home before Aisha was old enough to remember. Her antagonism toward Rudeus, despite not knowing him, stemmed from the influence of her mother, Rilia. Rilia, who had been saved by Rudeus in the past, had groomed Aisha for the purpose of making her Rudeus’s maid through specialized education.

However, this resulted in Aisha rebelling against the constant praise of Rudeus’s greatness, leading her to assert that “nobody is that perfect.” The first time Aisha and Rudeus met was after the Fittoa Territory teleportation incident. They encountered each other when Aisha, along with her mother Rilia, was imprisoned in the Seirun Kingdom, and Rudeus came to their rescue. From that point onwards, Aisha came to recognize Rudeus’s remarkable qualities and began to admire him.

Relationship Between Aisha and Norn

In contrast to Rudeus, who was absent from the household during Aisha’s formative years, Norn grew up with Aisha as her sister. However, despite being sisters, they both harbored insecurities that strained their relationship. Norn felt overshadowed by Aisha’s talents, while Aisha herself grappled with feelings of inferiority due to being considered a “bastard child” in comparison to Norn.

Ultimately, their relationship began to improve as both of them matured and with the birth of Lucy into the Greyrat family. These changes contributed to a positive transformation in their dynamic.

Was the Hugging Scene Between Aisha and Rudeus Cut from the Anime?

Aisha’s fondness for Rudeus was sparked by the rescue mission in the Seirei no Roan Kingdom, as mentioned earlier. However, what truly deepened Aisha’s affection for Rudeus was a certain line he uttered during that time. Rudeus reassured Aisha, saying, “You don’t need to feel burdened by being a ‘bastard child.’ You are also an important little sister to me.”

Touched by these words, Aisha tearfully embraced Rudeus, expressing her emotions with the words “Big brother, I love you.” However, it’s worth noting that in the anime adaptation, this hugging scene was altered or omitted, possibly due to time constraints. Aisha’s realization that Rudeus was her actual brother occurs later, inside a carriage after their parting.

Aisha’s Abilities and Talents

One of the factors that contributed to the strained relationship between Aisha and Norn was Aisha’s remarkable abilities. Aisha is a natural prodigy with a wide range of talents, thanks in part to the exceptional education she received from her mother, Rylia. She excels in various fields, including academics, swordsmanship, and magic. By the age of 10, she was already considered capable enough to work as a maid in the royal palace.

Notably, there is an episode where Aisha reluctantly takes the entrance exam for a magic university at Rudeus’s request, but ends up scoring a perfect score. In an alternate timeline where Rudeus doesn’t exist, Aisha becomes a legendary magic knight known as the “Kingdom’s Greatest Genius.” It is revealed that she even created a summoning magic circle to transport individuals to another world.

Voice Actress for Aisha in “Mushoku Tensei”

The voice actress who portrayed Aisha in the anime “Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation” is Yūki Takada. She made her voice acting debut in 2013 and is known for her distinct high-pitched husky voice, which has become a hallmark of her roles.

Yūki Takada: Notable Roles and Characters

  1. Elma in “Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid” (“Kobayashi-san Chi no Maid Dragon”)

These are just a few examples of the characters Yūki Takada has brought to life with her voice acting talent.

Here are the translated passages:

“In regards to the Aïsha Arc of “Mushoku Tensei,” here, we will summarize and introduce the thoughts and impressions of those who have already read it, including some spoilers. Aïsha was already a popular character in the main story, so the episode of her elopement with her nephew Arisu (Ars) was quite shocking to many readers. Given the nature of the content, it’s understandable that there was a certain amount of controversy surrounding it.

On the other hand, despite the content, this episode is a portrayal of Aïsha’s happiness, and many express the desire for her to have a happy ending. Some have even mentioned that they felt glimpses of Aïsha’s human side that make her more relatable. Additionally, in this Aïsha Arc, there’s a significant scene where Rudeus reveals to his wives that he is a reincarnated individual, which some consider to be an important moment within the larger context of “Mushoku Tensei.”

Due to these factors, there are voices expressing the hope for a return of the episode, even if it’s in a milder form, such as in the light novel, since it resonated with readers. Some acknowledge the episode’s potential impact and are interested in seeing how it could be adapted in the official light novels or other forms.”

The reasons for the controversy and uproar surrounding the Aïsha elopement episode in “Mushoku Tensei” can be summarized as follows:

The Aïsha elopement episode, featured in the side story arc, became the center of controversy due to its highly shocking content. Particularly, the initial draft of the episode was described as portraying Aïsha as if she was manipulating Arisu (Ars), resembling mind control. Even the author, Rifujin na Magonote, attempted to make revisions to address these concerns. However, ultimately, the episode was deleted due to notifications from the “Shousetsuka ni Narou” website (“Let’s Become Novelists”).

As of January 2023, the episode remains deleted and cannot be read as an official part of the story. Nevertheless, web archives and snapshots still exist, prompting various opinions from readers, including calls for its revival. The possibility of a return in the upcoming light novel version of the side story arc, scheduled for release in 2023, has also been speculated, generating anticipation for future developments.
