Where to start Manga or Light Novel after Part 2 Part 1?
If you can’t wait for the anime series to return, you can choose light novels or manga series to quench your thirst.
Season 2 Season 1 adapts the first three episodes of “The Teenage Season” (episodes 7-9). Therefore, Season 2 will adapt the last three episodes of this season (episodes 10-12). So there’s enough source material for multiple sequels.
The light novel series has also received a manga adaptation, illustrated by Yaka Fujikawa. This novel and manga series has received serialization in English from “Seven Seas Entertainment”.
Twenty-three volumes of the novel series and 17 volumes of the manga series have been translated into English. You can buy these volumes on Amazon.

The sole purpose of providing source material for an anime adaptation is to increase sales. Mushoku Tensei’s light novel sales increased as it ranked 2nd in Amazon’s Best-Selling Teen and Adult Light Novel Series and Bookwalker Light Novel Best-Selling for September.
The rankings on Amazon show that the series is popular not only in Japan but also around the world.
