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.

Are you not a conceited a$$hat?

You will like this one.

Characters you truly feel for.
A world that could use expanding, but what they show has enough detail to enjoy and feel thought out.
Dialogue that will get a tear or two from you by the time you're done it.
Some pretty solid animation at times, especially the fights. Carried by out-of-the-ordinary character designs.

Some issues with CG that were par for the course the year it released, but nothing like Berserk remake or Golden Kamuy.

Mixed Feelings
Faraway Paladin is the epitome of Mid.

It is the exact definition of an average anime. It’s an issekai about a normal guy who dies and becomes a strong guy in a different world. He’s stronger than most people, but not too much stronger than everyone else.

What stands about it?


It dips it toes into multiple categories, but doesn’t commit to any, so it becomes this stale, lukewarm show. It tries to be a smart show by having the protagonist think about his moves during battle, but there isn’t a huge focus on this and his moves don’t really combo together, it’s more that he just ...

I don't think this anime is recommended because of many factors and I might stop watching it because it's too boring.

1. I don't see clearly his purpose.
2. Learn from many books but still look very stupid, this is the saddest thing about this anime.
3. Wasting too much time on things that are less important.
4. A prosperous kingdom that is large enough but ignores the small villages around it.
5. The horrors of demons or beasts that smother civilization are not very clear.

Will (Main Charater) make me surprised when he gets insulted but there is no anger or feeling to defend himself. Looks stupid even though he ...
