Synopsis

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.

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.

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 read more

First of all, I'm going to talk about the author of the work, who is a great Mushoku Tensei phenomenon, that is, in this anime we see the origin of the work with a very good animation and a fantastic soundtrack. Besides, you can appreciate the creator's love for Mushoku Tensei since he focuses more on giving the protagonist a very unique personality, trying not to repeat the mistakes he made in his previous life. With this we see a world of magic and fantasy type but only the first chapters already show you that it is not any generic isekai. I really like how read more

Oh boy, where do I begin with this one?

If there was one positive thing to say about this anime, it's how it made a great first impression when I first looked into it. I have no idea what the story, went into it blindly and was genuinely curious to know more about it. If only I knew to avoid this.

Story: 3/10
Watch this anime until episode 5 and then stop. Do not watch anymore after that. It turns into a dull fantasy adventure where the main character becomes too powerful to fight against and talks like a doofus when he comes across new people. First, impression-wise, read more
