Rentt Faina, a twenty-five-year-old adventurer, has been hacking away at monsters for a decade. However, without much talent for the job, Rentt finds himself stuck hunting slimes and goblins for meager amounts of coin every day. Little does he know, all this is about to change when he comes across a seemingly undiscovered path in the Labyrinth of the Moon's Reflection. What awaits him at the end of the path, however, is neither treasure nor riches, but a legendary dragon that wastes no time swallowing him whole! Waking up a short time later, Rentt finds himself not quite dead, but not very alive either—he is nothing more than a pile of bones! Armed with nothing but his trusty sword, tool belt, and ghoulish new looks, Rentt sets off on his quest as a newly reborn Skeleton to achieve Existential Evolution, hoping to one day return to civilization with a more human form.

Will Rentt succeed, or will the labyrinth consume him for the rest of his un-death...?

To start with what doesn’t work:

I've been following this series after the translations by J-Novel started, and I'm happy I picked it up.

The Unwanted Undead Adventurer is a fantasy novel about - as the title states - a guy who died and returns as an undead. If this had been some other random fantasy novel, I imagine that would be the end of it, and there would be very little information or research about the how or why of his condition.
In this novel, the search for how and why Rentt Faina got turned into an undead and the developments of his condition and the impact it has on his life read more
