“Skeleton Knight in Another World ss 2”: release date, announcement
According to viewers’ feedback, the first few episodes of the anime “Skeleton Knight in Another World” did not impress enough to put it in the TOP isekai series. We are talking not only about comparing the plot with such anime as “Overlord” or “Goblin slayer“, but also about the presence of the following parameters: lack of development of the main characters, a primitive plot, unjustified inclusion of scenes where gangsters threaten girls with rape, etc. Despite this, the first season of the anime received fairly high ratings. This theoretically could indicate that the season 2 will still come out. However, the director and screenwriter must carefully work out the new episodes, having studied all the negative reviews about the season 1.
In conclusion, we add that at present there is no information about the season 2 of the series “Skeleton Knight in Another World”, but if the continuation of the anime is released, then not earlier than the spring of 2023.
The protagonist loves a computer game with a character named Arc, a knight of enormous size, dressed in silver armor and a mantle that resembles a starry night sky. Who would have thought that once falling asleep during the game, the guy will wake up in this very world in the body of his favorite character. Having examined his “clothing”, feeling the power of the sword in his hands, the player’s happiness knew no bounds. That’s just to believe him getting into the world of the game is at first extremely difficult.
Seeing his appearance in the reflection of the water, it turned out that Arc is a living skeleton, having both feelings of compassion and feelings of hunger. And in order to satisfy their hunger, Arc needs money, so it was decided to go to the nearest city. Once in the Mercenary Guild, the knight must complete the first task, after which he will receive a license: kill three wild animals or monsters, or bandits.
And if everything turned out to be quite simple with wild animals, then killing bandits was not entirely humane — they are people. But seeing their evil intentions, Arc destroyed the enemies with a single swing of his sword. Having freed two beautiful girls, the knight received bandit values in return and the long-awaited mercenary license. The adventures of the protagonist in the world of a computer game are just beginning…
- Arc — a character in the computer game; a skeleton dressed in armor; once the guy woke up in the game, in the body of Arc, now he has certain skills, weapons and other options; in the new world, he stood up for the girls, after which he turned into a real knight in their eyes.
- Ariane — an elf that Arc meets in the new world; he becomes her friend and helps in the release of her kind; has excellent warrior skills; quick-tempered, but always acts for the good of others; over time, she gets to know Arc so closely that she can guess his thoughts even though she cannot see his face and emotions.
