Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation's major standout, Ghislaine the Sword King, has been put in the spotlight with some awesome cosplay! Mushoku Tensei is credited for being an isekai series (specifically those that begin with someone being reincarnated into another world upon their death) that has inspired many that had come before, and now fans of the subgenre are beginning to see why as the debut of the anime adaptation of Rifujin na Magonote's original novel series has brought the series to a whole new audience. With its debut in the Winter 2021 season, the roots of this genre began to show.
Mushoku Tensei, like many of the Isekai subgenre, features a lead who has been given a second chance at life. Formerly a shut-in who was so locked up in his house that he even skipped his parents' funeral, he's given another chance when he finds himself reincarnated in a fantasy like world full of magic and other major characters. This includes the talented fighter, Ghislaine, who is one of the few people who had managed to work her way to the high rank of Sword King. Now artist @haneame_cos has brought this fighter to life with some awesome cosplay on Instagram! Check it out below:

Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation started out as a series of novels (that's right, before they became the more popular light novel medium) that did spark a lot of the reincarnation Isekai subgenre takes that we had seen in action years later. The nature of its impact on the rest of the subgenre is a little more complicated than that as it's about the popularity of the series more than anything, but now fans can see why with this newest anime release.
It might seem like it's cribbing ideas from these other releases, but it's kind of the other way around. Now with it officially making its debut and starting a whole new arc with its latest string of episodes (unfortunately not seeming to involve Ghislaine as the previous arc did), there's a chance it'll have the same impact with anime fans as it once did with its big novel release!
But what do you think of Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation's big anime debut so far? Curious to see where this franchise can go from here? Where does Ghislaine rank among your favorites of the series so far?
