Ongoing anime adaptation continues to impress
The anime adaptation of Skeleton Knight in Another World manga and light novel series was first announced in April 2021, making its international debut on April 7th, 2022.
The series is produced by Studio Kai in arguably their biggest production to date, having previously worked on Super Cub, Uma Musume Pretty Derby and Cagaster of an Insect Cage. Studio Kai will also helm the upcoming Shine Post (July 2022), The Prince of Tennis (July 2022) and Fuuto PI (August 2022) series.
Skeleton Knight in Another World’s first season is currently halfway through its 12-episode broadcast, with new adventures being simulcast worldwide on Crunchyroll.

- Eastern Time – 10:30 AM EDT
- British Time – 3:30 PM BST
- European Time – 4:30 PM CEST
- Philippine Time – 10:30 PM PHT
The series is scoring a respectable 7.32/10 on MyAnimeList, but a rather disappointing 6.9/10 on IMDB – with the majority of reviews being highly critical of the main narrative.
“Overall, this just feels like a show that took a bunch of elements from various popular isekai & fantasy and thought they could come away with something good, but every one of these elements is poorly executed. Im dropping this, do yourself a favor and skip out on this one.” – User FidelCRT, via MyAnimeList.
