After the release of the anime “Jobless Reincarnation” in January 2021, fans of the isekai genre could not come to their senses for a long time. The story captured the hearts so much that the audience craved a sequel. But then another story came out, headed by the boy William, raised by three undead.

On December 25, 2021, a message was posted on Twitter on the official anime account of “The Faraway Paladin” that fans were waiting for a sequel!

Will’s journey continues!
William has a vague memory of his past life. Sometimes memories come to him, they haunt him, but he knows that memory is very important for his present life. As a three-year-old boy, Will found himself in another world, where he was surrounded by undead. Blood, Mary and Gus replaced his closest relatives. They enveloped him with tenderness, care and love. Each gave the human boy a piece of themselves. But they have a secret that William was not allowed to know about for a long time.
Years passed, the boy grew up, Blood taught him to be strong and courageous, Gus enlightened him every day, reading smart books, and Mary was by his side every day, helping to grow and learn the world. But, as it turned out, Will had an important mission ahead of him. Once he had to find out the whole truth about his beloved trinity and go to a world that he had not yet seen…
