What is The Unwanted Undead Adventurer About?
Rentt Faina, a young adventurer, has led a rather mundane adventuring life. With his conquests consisting mostly of hacking away slimes and goblins, nothing much ever seems to happen, leaving him feeling very mediocre. He feels stuck doing his job for a nominal amount of money every day and longs for change.
He happens to find a path in the Labyrinth of the Reflected Moon and finds himself face to face with a dragon. The dragon happens to consume him immediately, but to his surprise, he does not die. His form shifts to that of a skeleton who is left with nothing but a rusty sword. Rentt begins a new life while trying to find his human appearance again with Existential Evolution.
His ghoul-like appearance does not spare him company, as he finds people who join him on his adventures as he tries to evade the labyrinth that tries to consume him despite being undead.
The anime adaptation has only been announced! The visuals, posters and other details should be released throughout the year. The illustrator of the light novel, Jaian has posted an illustration to celebrate the announcement of the anime adaptation!
