Skeleton Knight Review – Unexpectedly Good

June 17, 2022

So Skeleton Knight in Another World was one of the biggest surprises for me this season. I went into this show expecting a typical isekai SOL/comedy with an OP MC. But, I was soon proven wrong. This definitely had one of the most shocking first impressions though, that first scene really reminded me of Goblin Slayer. Both series share a few common points but are vastly different in tone and execution.

So well, welcome back to another one of my reviews. Today we are talking about Skeleton Knight in Another World. This series was way better than it had any right to be. I was pretty impressed by this series and how much I enjoyed it. So well, let’s get into some more details.

Where to Watch Skeleton Knight in Another World Online

Plot

Skeleton Knight starts off as a seemingly normal isekai. A guy wakes up and finds himself in the body of his video game avatar. A holy knight who has been cursed to look like a skeleton. Wanting to learn more about the world he is in and not wanting to stand out, he takes up work as a mercenary/adventurer. Soon though, he gets involved with all sorts of stuff.

As I said, Skeleton Knight starts off as a normal isekai at first. But soon, it gets a lot of stuff going for it. I don’t want to go too deep into spoilers but, there’s a lot of stuff regarding slave trading. There’s this whole racket involved and Arc tries his best to stop it. What could’ve been a normal adventure isekai, ends up being something much deeper than that because of this. The plot gets pretty good in the second half and there is some pretty fair world-building here.

Characters

Arc alone is good enough to carry Skeleton Knight. He is such a well-done character. I adore how his interests and fascination with fantasy stuff surface whenever he sees something new. I also love how he likes to try out the effects of skills and how different they are from the game. He is a great guy. Then there is Ariane who is a cinnamon roll. She has a really strong desire to protect her people and she works hard for it. And Ponta is just adorable.

Animations and Soundtracks

The animation quality is pretty average. Well, slightly above average I’d say. The use of 3D models is really good though, they did a good job of fitting the 3D character models onto the 2D backgrounds. The fights feel impactful and SFX used are pretty dope as well. Speaking of, the opening and ending themes of Skeleton Knight are absolute fire. They are catchy as hell and look and sound really good.

Conclusion

My final scores for Skeleton Knight are:

  • Plot – 8/10
  • Characters – 8/10
  • Animations – 7/10
  • Soundtracks – 9/10
  • Enjoyment – 9/10
  • Arc’s laughter 1-hour loop – 10/10
  • Overall – 8/10

Oh and I forgot to mention, Skeleton Knight is available on YouTube for free thanks to the Muse Network. So please, do support them. As always, those were my thoughts on the series. Let me know yours in the comments. I will take my leave here for now. See ya!!
