Recap

You Keep Missing Them – Talhand, Elinalise, Roxy

As shown in episode one, Roxy keeps missing Rudy but did see the other members of Dead End. But, while looking for Rudy and his family members, she deals with Paul’s former party members of which there is the quiet Talhand and the sex enthusiast Elinalise. Someone who seems to less look for answers and information and more to have orgies. Something that she invites Roxy to join but with Roxy not comfortable with sex, she declines.

One Good Deed Doesn’t Go Without Punishment – Rudy, Ruijerd, Eris

The trip to the Millis Continent was rough, mainly for Eris, who gets seasick. So, for most of the episode, she is absent as Rudy goes to get Ruijerd from where the smugglers hold all those who were transported. There he learns Ruijerd isn’t for the idea of just being picked up and leaving. There are beast children there, and one recently died, so he wants to liberate them.

This, originally, makes Rudy uncomfortable, but with the people there being thieves and smugglers, he sets his conscience aside and helps. However, in doubling back for a dog that isn’t a humanoid, Rudy is captured by beast people thinking he is a smuggler, and they take him to their village.

Review

Highlights

Not Being Frustrated By Roxy Missing Rudy

I’m cool with them prolonging Rudy and Roxy reuniting. Right now, Dead End, and Rudy’s journey with them, trying to get to the human continent, will probably be far more interesting than anything Elinalise, Talhand, and Roxy can bring. Plus, there is hope that we’ll see Roxy in action with her new party as we’ve seen with Dead End. And if Roxy discovers Rudy, what reason would there be for battles, unless they run out of money?

The Beast People

While this leads to a side quest, one of the things we’ve always loved about Jobless Reincarnation is that it isn’t just about the lead characters, but the world they live in. So to learn about Beast culture, the people, and their plight, it should be rather interesting. For while Rudy is mainly known and seen as a perv, there is no discounting that he is also a scholar and the information he’ll gather will be of great interest.
