‘Mushoku Tensei’ Labyrinth Arc explained

Rudeus and Sylphie’s honeymoon was cut short for an even greater adventure.

Season 2 of Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation is coming to a close, and it was an exciting, action and drama-filled season. Fans of the isekai anime loved watching Rudeus Greyrat grow even more powerful as he enrolled in Ranoa University of Magic. The beginnings of the Labyrinth Arc, which was adapted in the second half of the season, saw Rudy juggling his troubled relationships with his family alongside his romantic interests and magic training.

The season also explored romantic plotlines, setting the groundwork for the harem trope that will become more prominent later in the story. So far, it’s been one of the most entertaining arcs in the story, even though a lot was going on. Here’s the Labyrinth Arc of Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation explained. 

What is the Labyrinth Arc about?

Season 2 part  1 of Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation covered from the University Arc to the Sisters Arc and aired from July to September 2023. The second part of the season began to adapt the Labyrinth Arc, one of the most exciting arcs of the entire story. The arc starts with Rudeus and Sylphie tying the knot and starting their life as a married couple, but they don’t get to enjoy a peaceful honeymoon.

In this arc, we see Rudeus Greyrat reunited with his father Paul Greyrat in Begaritt to search for his mother, Zenith, who went missing in a dangerous and mysterious labyrinth. He does this against the instruction of the Man-God, which will likely have consequences in the future.

His decision to join his father means that Rudy will miss the birth of his and Sylphie’s child, and will likely be gone for at least two years. To raise the stakes even higher, his former mentor, Roxy, also got lost in the labyrinth while searching for Zenith. The arc contains a budding romance, family drama, and the expected level of magical complexity that Mushoku Tenseialways delivers. 


There is only one episode left to bring the second season of Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation to a close. Episode 21 showed Rudeus, Paul and the rest of the party finally finding Roxy. Despite seemingly having selective amnesia, Roxy shows some interest in Rudy, but he pointedly doesn’t mention his wife and unborn child. The labyrinth continued to be tricky to navigate, but Rudy and Paul haven’t given up on finding Zenith just yet.
