Mushoku Tensei Episode 9 Spoilers

In episode 8, Rudeus celebrates his 10th birthday. He has hoped that his family would come to Roa to celebrate with him but discovers that they could not travel because monsters have become suddenly more active all over the countryside. Rudeus receives a high-end mage staff as a birthday gift from Eris and her family.

Later in the evening, Philip offers Rudeus Eris’s hand in marriage and the position of his successor, but Rudeus declines. When he gets to his room, he finds Eris is sitting on his bed. She allows him intimacy to a certain point before pushing him away. Rudeus realizes that he is at fault and asks for her forgiveness, which she grants him.

Meanwhile, Sylphiette visits Rudeus’ family to give them her birthday gift for him so that they can send it to Roa. Paul returns, irritated by the sharp rise of monster activity. Suddenly, an immense cloud of mana starts to gather over the Asura Kingdom and can be seen from various parts of the continent.

Perugius Dola, the great hero known for banishing Demon God Laplace, dispatches his associate Arumanfi to find out what is happening. Arumanfi erroneously concludes that Rudeus is responsible as the latter has been using magic at the time. He tries to attack the boy, but Ghislaine intervenes and clarifies that Rudeus has nothing to do with this. The episode ends with a sudden burst of white light that engulfs everything. In episode 9, the purpose of the bright light might be revealed. We might also learn who caused it in the next episode.
