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.

Just finished Saihate no Paladin.

Saihate no Paladin. An Isekai that some say is heavily influence from Tolkiens work. TBH one of the interesting Isekai I have watch.

Note: I did not read the source materials yet. So I'm going to review this based on the anime only.

Story: From Episode 1-5 the set up of Will's as a character is really great. Its shows that Will is learning from his imperfection and The relationship between Blood, Mary, and Gus really did have an impact on what Will makes a great character. The Dialogue on this is pretty good and entertaining. Episode 6-12 The story will ...

Mixed Feelings
This anime is kind of disappointing in my mind. The beginning arc is great. The action is pretty good, the art work is very good, and I like the pacing and story. The characters are good as well! Then after that it just feels generic for the most part. The action is fine, but not as good. The artwork is still solid, but the overall story and characters just get a lot less interesting. There are some attempts to have some character growth, but it just feels kind of empty. I think it would have hit harder if I had continued to care, but I ...

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 ...
