Takeshi Tensei: Unemployed Reincarnation yes official english name Takeshi Reincarnation: Another World’s One-handed Doro Benki Osu. This is Episode 03 of Season 1 Part 2 .
Going into this episode completely haunted by the previous episode, I wish we could get a break from the creepy vibes of Rudy and Einalise. Everywhere you look on this show, people are trying to force girls to sleep with someone.I really, really hope this gets fixed somewhere.
But I won’t hold my breath, tbh. In terms of plot, I hope we can find some kind of connection between Rudy and Roxy, or at least hint that the plot moves forward in some way. Roxy has no clues about Aisha, Zenith, or Lilia, and I don’t know how much Rudy’s father needs to get home.
The episode opens with Rudy sarcastically speaking about his cell conditions as if they were a feature in the apartment complex. We see his day-to-day routine in prison—the Beast woman who brings his meals every day douses him with icy water and insults him, even though Rudy is falsely accused here. Oh yes, he was also stripped naked.
One day, a gambler named Geese joins Rudy in his cell, and Rudy asks if Eris/Ruijerd is looking for him. Geese said he hasn’t seen any bald or redheaded kids.
One night the goose gave Rudy a massage (don’t ask, it sounds casual, used as background for a sex joke) Rudy asks Geese if he wants to run away. Goose said no, because he had his own business to do. However, his plans change when the entire town appears to be on fire and Rudy/Geece is forced to flee. Rudy uses magic to transform a stone into the key to the cage they’re in.
As they escape, they discover the cause of the fire – the Gallus Cleaner and his men have come again to purchase more beasts. He comments that eccentric aristocrats like to buy them (Rudy wonders if Philip does). Rudy couldn’t stand by and let men and women be slaughtered and children taken away, so he chose to fight Gallus. However, it proved very difficult and Rudy was stabbed in the leg.
rudy with the help of goose (who’s really just for cheating on the dice, free my man fr fr) Defeated Gallus, but Rudy passed out. When he wakes up, he is surrounded by the village chief (we know him to be of the tribe of Dedoldia, the same tribe that Ghislaine is from), who thanks him and apologizes for his misunderstanding.
Alice and Rijeld were there too, and they told him that they also had a lot of trouble fighting De Doldia trying to get Rudeus back. Eris told us that when they return, she will be more than happy to tell her Beastkin-loving grandfather about their adventures.
Unfortunately for Eris and her grandfather, we see Sauros Boreas actually beheaded at home after a mana disaster for “failing to manage it properly”. His “servant”, or rather traitor, Darius, has now taken control of the land. In his last prayer, he wished Eris well before being beheaded.
Wow! The ending reveal of Eris’ grandfather being beheaded was great, I really enjoyed this episode even though I will miss my grandfather. Rudy once pointed out that he was “not like Rajed” and would risk his life for someone he didn’t know, or even a child, but that’s exactly what he did to Gallus! We do see a lot of character development in Rudy. Now if only he wasn’t so much of a piss.
Well, we didn’t get a lot out of Rudy this episode anyway, so I’m fine with that. The battle between Beastkin and Gallus’ men is very well done visually. We also see that Rudy understands the seriousness of these Beastkin being trafficked and realizes for a while that Phillip likely purchased the trafficked Beastkin. I hope we get to see him face this later on too.
