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.

A hidden surprise !

this and Osama king are definitely the hidden gems of this season.

In any isekai anime, two things are very important

2)main story (basically the characters)

but even if we have only one of them it still makes it a good isekai anime. A great isekai anime Must have both.

And yes sahite no paladin is leaning towards the latter through a very clever writing gimmick, though there is not much to say about the MC (who I think is probably another loner/hikikomori) and uninteresting for the most part. The story still remains engaging.


simply because the goal of the MC is interesting because of the CIRCUMSTANCES read more

If you thought the isekai genre was all wrapped up, there will always be a straggler, and The Faraway Paladin is that straggler.

Story: A businessman has presumably let himself get hit by Truck-san and now finds himself in a world of gods and Halloween-themed parent figures (a ghost, a skeleton, and a mummy). Except that world is basically a prison-like tower that serves as a nursery, since it takes 15 years for him to reach adulthood and start his adventure. 1/10

Art: Very visually appealing. Will is vibrant, especially with his orange hair, compared to his technically-dead parent figures. 8/10

Sound: At times, it feels like I'm read more

Honestly, the concept alone would be enough to interest any anime watcher. Think about it, we've seen so much, but three different monster like creatures, working together to raise a human child? Now that's a whole different story all together. It's not without it's flaws. But Saihate no Paladin, continues to be interesting week by week.

In these few episodes that we are given. We learn so much, not just of how the boy is trained. To how the whole story has come about. It doesn't take it slow either, it as a nice progress that can keep a viewer entertained. Even if sometimes a little read more

This review contains minor spoilers.
Please read the synopsis before continuing, and remember that this is mostly my opinion.

I generally dislike isekais, especially since the majority of them are mass-produced cookie-cutter uncreative harem/ecchi/over-powered anime aiming to follow a trend and be popular. I went on a journey to make a list of all these mass-produced manga titles, and to my surprise, there were several hundred that all had incredibly similar cliches, tropes, stories, and objectives. Saihate no Paladin isn't one of those titles (hopefully the manga is also good), Saihate no Paladin is a pretty good isekai.

It goes without saying that I had bad expectations for read more
