The Unwanted Undead Adventurer:
“Nozomanu Fushi no Boukensha” introduces us to Rentt Faina, a 25-year-old adventurer who, after a decade of fighting monsters, doesn’t seem to stand out in his profession. With a daily routine of encounters with slimes and goblins for scant coins, Rentt’s life takes an unexpected turn when he discovers a secret path to the Labyrinth of the Reflected Moon. There, instead of treasures, he finds a legendary dragon that devours him without delay. However, Rentt awakens, not dead, but in a new skeletal form. Now armed with his trusty sword, his tool belt, and his daunting new look, Rentt embarks on an unusual odyssey in search of a legendary artifact that, hopefully, could return him to his human form.
This unexpected twist in the protagonist’s life marks the beginning of a unique adventure that will surely capture both old followers and new viewers when the series makes its debut on the small screen.
