Mushoku Tensei exists thanks to Re:Monster

In a post recently discovered by netizens, Rifujin no Magonote, the author of the acclaimed light novel series "Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation," surprised his followers by revealing how he began his writing career. The author confessed that it all started when, by chance, he read the novels "Re:Monster":

In his own words, Rigujin no Magonote wrote:

  • "It all started when I found a book called Re:Monster in a bookstore and decided to read it. I found it so interesting that I ended up discovering Shosetsuka ni Naro (a Japanese site where anyone can publish their own novels), and I read other works there. Then I thought: 'Maybe I can publish my novel here without looking ridiculous.'"

This revelation is particularly interesting because, contrary to what some might think, it wasn't the story of "Re:Monster" that directly inspired Rigujin no Magonote. Instead, it was the serendipitous discovery of the novel that led him to the Shosetsuka ni Naro platform, where he would later publish "Mushoku Tensei" and achieve fame.

Both franchises, both "Re:Monster" and "Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation," currently have anime adaptations. However, the reception of these adaptations has been noticeably different. While the adaptation of "Re:Monster" has gone almost unnoticed, "Mushoku Tensei" is enjoying a moment of great popularity and success. The series has captured the attention of a wide audience thanks to its intriguing narrative and well-developed characters.

"Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation" tells the story of an unemployed and aimless man who, after dying in an accident, is reborn in a fantasy world with all his memories intact, vowing to live his new life without regrets. This series has been praised for its emotional depth and detailed world-building.

On the other hand, "Re:Monster" follows the life of a man who, after dying, is reborn in a fantasy world as a goblin with the ability to acquire the powers of what he consumes. Although the premise is appealing, its anime adaptation has failed to capture the same attention and excitement as "Mushoku Tensei."
