The Overlap Bunko 8th Anniversary event announced a television anime adaptation of Enki Hakari's Gaikotsu Kishi-sama, Tadaima Isekai e Odekakechuu (Skeleton Knight in Another World) light novel on Saturday. The publisher simultaneously launched an official website, revealing the main cast, staff, a key visual (pictured), and promotional video.

Synopsis
One day, a gamer played video games until he fell asleep...and when he woke up, he found himself in the game world—as a skeleton! Equipped with the powerful weapons and armor of his avatar but stuck with its frightening skeletal appearance, Arc has to find a place for himself in this new, fantastical land. All his hopes for a quiet life are dashed when he crosses paths with a beautiful elven warrior, setting him on a journey full of conflict and adventure. (Source: Seven Seas Entertainment)

Cast
Arc Raratoia: Tomoaki Maeno (Log Horizon)
Ariane Glenys Raratoia: Ai Fairouz (Dumbbell Nan Kilo Moteru?)
Ponta: Nene Hieda (Senyoku no Sigrdrifa)

Staff
Director: Katsumi Ono (Senki Zesshou Symphogear XV, Girly Air Force)
Series Composition: Takeshi Kikuchi (Night Wizard original creator, Ragnastrike Angels script)
Character Design: Tooru Imanishi (Shuumatsu Nani Shitemasu ka? Isogashii Desu ka? Sukutte Moratte Ii Desu ka?, Super Cub)

Hakari began penning the action fantasy novel on the Shousetsuka ni Narou website in October 2014. Overlap began publishing the series featuring illustrations by KeG the following June and published the ninth volume in March 2019. The light novel has a cumulative 1.5 million of its copies in circulation.

Akira Sawano began drawing a manga adaptation on Overlap's Comic Gardo web manga portal in February 2017. The seventh volume shipped on August 25 last year, with the eighth volume going on sale on April 25.

Seven Seas Entertainment licensed both the light novel and manga in September 2018 and published the eighth novel volume on February 23 and the fifth manga volume last December.

Watched the pv. guys I'm so tired.
It's a fkn isekai gamer whiteknighting a girl that's being sexually assaulted. The sexual assault is of course drawn in a titillating detailed way. In THE TRAILER.
Sexual violence against women in your fantasy story? How inventive

At this point I'm going to develop a violent hate against this genre and break out in an allergic rash at the mention of "..get transported to another world"

Oh, a pleasant surprise. I've read the manga version of this and enjoyed it quite a bit. The characters were all really likeable. The main characters is quite literally a white knight despite his skeletal appearance but also kind of a goof with the other characters often playing the straight man or woman. Will definitively watch it.

Is there any reason it's an isekai or it just has to be one, because nowadays you can't even flush without turd being transported to another world?

So, did someone just rip-off the Overlord with a warrior instead of a mage?

@-lazyknight- Don't even try, man. This is the type of people who build their tastes not on what they like, but on what they don't like.

I just don't understand. Why are there so many? How many anime with a Japanese guy being transported to a fantasy world with a harem of elves and kemono girls do you need to make? What is the appeal after seeing thirteen of them last year? And the year before!? The anime medium is just hollow now. There's nothing to watch if you're not lonely and sex-starved.

Pleasant surprise. I wonder it'll compare to the manga adaptation.

Funny how people whine about "another isekai" when there's just as many more "generic" rom-com, slice of life, and school-set anime series out there as there are isekai fantasy anime.

It's not that difficult to avoid these types of series and genres y'all clearly dislike. Don't like it, cool then go find something you actually do enjoy watching and talking about.

There's plenty of shows every season that are nothing like what you're describing. No need to be hyperbolic.

At this point is there even such a thing as being hyperbolic about Isekais?

Hyperbolic about the amount of them. You're acting like that's all anime is nowadays, which just isn't true. If you don't like them that's fine.

Oh boy, another generic, shitty isekai that uses some vaguely novel twist (in this case, the fact that he's a skeleton knight) to try and look more interesting than it actually is. Can already tell that this will be absolute garbage that isn't worth its existence, not least because the source material is licensed by Seven Seas in the west and their prerogative is to license the shittiest isekais that no one else wants.

There are quite a lot of good and enjoyable, to actually outstanding Isekai out here, but can also say most there is a lot of trash garbage in recent years.

I have to wonder, when will the bubble burst?
This lack of creativity and wanting to follow trends that are beaten to the dust by now does NOT help the creative industry.

Oh hell yeah, one isekai a day keeps the shit taste away yeshhhh
There was once a signature here.

Apparently advicing people to not act in a way that would get them insulted is an insult itself.
We truly live in a society.

That said, don't @ or quote me. I won't be notified of your heroic try.
You can celebrate my greatness by commenting on my profile, though. Love ya all.

Apart from those CGI movements the trailer looks quite good, great music. If this is a bit like Overlord but with a "friendlier" main character, I might really enjoy this.

The trailer looks awesome! I have always enjoyed most anime adaptations of light novels. It just makes me want to go and read them. I am looking forward to this!
