Born into a new world after a life of stagnancy, Will awakens to the faces of a skeleton, a ghost, and a mummy. Living in the ruins of a city long fallen, the three raise Will as their own. The skeleton— Blood—teaches him to fight; the ghost—Gus—teaches him magic; and the mummy—Mary—teaches him religion and responsibility. Most importantly, they all teach him love.

As Will grows up and learns about the world he was born into, he prepares for the day when he must finally set out on his own. For Will, this journey includes a lifelong promise. At their coming-of-age, every adult is required to swear an oath to the god of their choice, with the strength of the pledge affecting the degree of their sworn god's blessing.

With his departure approaching, Will must prepare to accept the truth of his undead guardians and embark into a world that even they don't know the state of. Will discovers, however, that every oath must be fulfilled, one way or another.

If there are 2 things that I can learn from this show, it's the quote of “Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery”, and that the author Kanata Yanagino is a nice and cool dude that not a lot of authors like him actually interacts with everyone on social media, good or bad, for or against, with his utmost eloquence and politeness.

The reason why I quote one of Oscar Wilde's famous quotations is that Kanata Yanagino's work is definitely influenced/inspired from Rifujin no Maganote's Mushoku Tensei on its premise/theme. And because plagarism is never a wise move, everything else from then on was his own ...

Mixed Feelings
Read the light novel or manga. The light novel and manga are utterly amazing. Full of character and life. This show feels like a soulless version of them. The story is interesting, but it does nothing to take advantage of being an anime. Will monologues as much as he does in the manga and novel, instead of using visuals to communicate the same information. The soundtrack is generic and ruins the tone of a few scenes. The LN is one of my favorite series of all time and this adaptation does not live up to it's standard. Buy the LN on Kindle its pretty cheap.

This show just feels pathetic to me. There’s a pang of desperation to it.

Its deficient attempt to reinvigorate the ossified corpse of isekai is meager and sad. Its cheap, shoddy animation and even cheaper, even shoddier CG is worsened by its dull, flat color palette.

Every line of dialogue grovels, begging you to care about its characters or its mechanics, but neither are engaging. Its exposition dumps are endless, sometimes occurring simultaneously with characters talking over one another. However, its verbosity is vacuous, and it features not a single moment of directorial inspiration.

A monumentally generous person would struggle to call this show mediocre.

Thank you for reading.
