In recent years, the world of light novels has spawned many titles, many based on the isekai subgenre that also dominates television, just think of the return of The Rising of the Shield Hero with season two. But not all fantasy light novels fall into this subgenre as it shows The unwanted undead adventurer.
Yu Okano has been collaborating with designer Jaian for a number of years Nozomanu Fushi no Bokensha, known abroad under the English title The Unwanted Undead Adventurer. The original light novel has been running since 2016 and is currently in its tenth volume, confirming an interesting and popular sequel. Thanks to this, the publisher was able to package a manga adaptation, but that's not the only novelty on the horizon.
It was indeed announced The Unwanted Undead Adventurer anime with a teaser trailer. The undead adventurer will also have to contend with his new nature in the short video available above. The announcement was made during the Overlap Bunko 9th Anniversary online event, where the teaser was distributed.
The 25-year-old adventurer Rentt Faina is always on the hunt for secrets and treasures. Unfortunately, one day he encounters a dragon that almost instantly devours him and sentences him to death. Or not? Suddenly, some time later, the adventurer manages to get out of the dragon, but with the appearance of a skeleton. Armed only with a sword and tools, this ghoul must find his way into the fantasy world and try to reclaim his human form and a place in society.
As can also be seen from the plot, The unwanted undead adventurer is not an isekai. Light novel illustrator Jaian released a key visual to celebrate the announcement, which you can see below. Still staying in the fantasy realm, Crunchyroll released the first episode of Don't Hurt Me, My Healer.
