Key takeaways from Anime Recommendation – Skeleton Knight in Another World:
- Skeleton Knight in Another World is a fun and entertaining anime that takes inspiration from the game isekai genre, but also puts its own unique spin on the story.
- The anime has a good plot, entertaining characters, good fight scenes, and great soundtracks.
- Despite not taking itself too seriously, the anime also deals with serious themes such as slavery and politics, adding more depth to the story.
So this anime came out in the spring season of last year and man, I still find myself thinking about it. This series clearly took some amount of inspiration from Overlord but it put its own spin on that. I really liked that idea. Skeleton Knight in Another World is another game isekai in every sense but you know what? It is really fun and entertaining.
So welcome back to another edition of our anime recommendation series. This week we are talking about Skeleton Knight in another world. I started watching this anime randomly last year and I really enjoyed watching it. So let’s talk about it.
Skeleton Knight in Another World is based on the LN of the same name by Hakari Enki and features illustrations by KeG. The LN has been serialized since June 2015. As for the anime, it is made by Studio Kai and Hornets. As I said, it came out in the spring of 2022 season and has 12 episodes with no confirmation for a season 2 yet.
This anime is a typical video game isekai. Our MC wakes up in the body of one of the video game characters he used to play, the cursed knight, Arc. As the title says, he is a skeleton. So he hides his appearance and tries to get used to his new surroundings. The world of the game is not the same as he remembers and so his journey begins.
Typical isekai plot, right? The thing I really like about this series is that it does not take itself too seriously. It does not refrain from having fun at times and it does not hide how ridiculous Arc’s appearance is to others. But then there is the other side, this anime kind of found its own unique twist on the story, dealing with Elves being forced into slavery. It also gives it a chance at more world-building since a lot of politics is involved in said slavery operations.
Skeleton Knight in Another World has some really amazing characters. Arc is an entertaining MC because he does not shy away from getting involved in the affairs of the world. He is also genuinely curious about learning about the world. Which is a good trait for an isekai MC. Ariane is definitely my favorite character though. Her character is really well-written.
Animations and Soundtracks
The animations are pretty alright. They won’t blow you away or anything but they work well enough. The soundtracks though are amazing. The opening theme is this rock song featuring Arc laughing really hard and the ending theme is so good too. I love both of those songs.
