Light Novel 'Saihate no Paladin' Gets TV Anime for Fall 2021
Apr 17, 4:13 AM
A television anime adaptation of Kanata Yanagino's Saihate no Paladin (The Faraway Paladin) light novel was announced at the Overlap Bunko 8th Anniversary event on Saturday. The publisher also opened an official website, revealing the main staff, cast, a key visual (pictured), and promotional video. The anime series will broadcast in October 2021.
In a city of the dead, long since ruined and far from human civilization, lives a single human child. His name is Will, and he's being raised by three undead: the hearty skeletal warrior, Blood; the graceful mummified priestess, Mary; and the crotchety spectral sorcerer, Gus. The three pour love into the boy, and teach him all they know.
But one day, Will starts to wonder: "Who am I?" Will must unravel the mysteries of this faraway dead man's land, and unearth the secret pasts of the undead. He must learn the love and mercy of the good gods, and the bigotry and madness of the bad. And when he knows it all, the boy will take his first step on the path to becoming a Paladin.

never heard of the studio. i wished something like A-2 or similar to adapt it, maybe they dont want to since there's no indication author will continue the novel
really love the story, but sadly i dont like this anime version of will, a bit feminine or like a tomboyish girl plus voiced by girl didnt help too
i mean, altho he's not bulky, he should be physically fit since he train since little kid
but ofc i will watch it since the first part is excellent

Can someone who reads source material tell me if it is harem,thanks in advance
Has been some time since I read the LN, but it aint a harem. I dont think that a love interest has been introduced either.
Wau then this actually sounds interesting I thought that after he will set off for his journey with his OP powers he would be picking girls like pokemons

The synopsis has totally caught my attention, plus Konishi Katsuyuki is voicing one of the characters?!?! Ok, i'm interested!!! Art styles looks great too!
Looked around a bit just to make sure and i didn't find anything about it, so i'm asking those who read the novel/manga, does this have gore(AKA not just blood)?

I want to thank everybody how made this possible. As novel reader I never even hoped that this series would get animated. This is my favorite literature piece. Thanks to the writer, I found my favorite music actist Christopher Tin. I hope how ever is in charge of music would use the same style. I´m sure you can do it. Even goblin slayer got Mili music. I couldn´t believe it. Hoping the best for the series. No matter how it will be adapted. More people should know this series.
