Nozomanu Fushi no Boukensha Summary
Rentt Faina, a 25-year-old adventurer, has been fighting monsters for over a decade. However, without much talent for the job, Rentt is always battling slimes and goblins for a measly amount of money a day.
Little does he know that all this is about to change when he discovers a secret path to the labyrinth of the moon. However, what awaits him at the end of the road is not treasure or riches, but a legendary dragon that wastes no time in devouring him. Rentt wakes up shortly after, but finds that he is neither dead nor alive. Now it's just a pile of bones. Armed with nothing but his trusty sword, utility belt and a terrifying new look, Rentt embarks on a new adventure as a skeleton in search of a mythical item that will hopefully restore him to human form.
