Hey anime fans, in this blog I would like to talk about new anime series which was recently finished its first season. Which is Skeleton Knight In Another World. In this blog, I would like to talk about my thoughts on this anime. With that, if you are looking for more information related to Skeleton Knight In Another World then I also added some of them.
Topics that I would be covering in this Blogs are-
- Comparison WithOverlord
- Dubbing Quality
- Anime Pace
- My personal Favourite Moment
- Writer, cast member, production house, etc
The theme of this anime is definitely not unique because there is just another anime like this one. And we anime fans totally loved it which is overlord. But the story for sure is great, Character introductions are also good.
Character development is also OK. Personally, I love isekai-type anime with magic. I’m so addicted to these types of anime that I started reading manhwa which is mostly based on these types.
I hate when the character is not human which is the only thing that I hate about this anime. But the fact that it can be removed made me feel good at some point in time. Apart from there is nothing that I personally hate about this anime.
One thing I like the most about this story is that it is not that overpowered. Which is a plus point in my regard. Why I’m saying this I will explain in the Overpowered section.
Comparison VS Overlord
Now I will try to compare Overlord and Skeleton Knight In Another World. This is my point of view nothing more than that.
The first thing that I personally felt is that Skeleton Knight In Another World gives a few positive vibes whereas while watching Overlord I felt it is kind of sadistic.
The second thing I like in Skeleton Knight In Another World is that it explores more areas I love to watch. I love seeing more ancient type areas or empires. And in overlord, this aspect is very little.
The thing that I loved about Overlord is the overuse of OP spells I mean Aizen doesn’t even want to leave a single bit of chance that will put him in a tight spot. And in the case of Arc, it is very few and he even lacks battle experience despite being a top gamer.
It might seem that I’m pointing out the flaws of Overlord but it is just my point of view that I felt.
Another thing is that Aizen’s servants are way too much obsessed with Aizen loyalty is good but clinging on to one thing I hate the most. Other than that one more thing is their personality they are made so that they are not like a human which makes it hard for me to understand them or feel them.
Though I’m sure this is what the writer was trying to achieve. And this is not the case in Skeleton Knight In Another World characters are easy to connect with and understand.
Voice Over And Animation
Voice over of Arc is quite good. And my favorite one is the laughing voice which you will hear at the end of every intro. I don’t think there are any flaws in the voice-over in the Japanese version. I don’t like the dub versions of any anime. I tried watching a few but the English version is not my piece of cake.
And just like Overlord, it has good animation. And is definitely better than Season 2 of Tate No Yusha. I don’t know what they ate when we were making the animation for Sheild Hero 2 season.
Though it is not the best I understand we just can’t expect Demon Salyer of animation from every anime and especially from ones that are newly released because they can’t risk that much.
Anime Pace And Characters
From my perspective anime is a little bit fast pace, from fighting to character introduction. Let me explain- When first Arc was introduced his backstory was narrated instead of making us witness ourselves and that narration was also very fast.
Even the plot development and suspense development are also rushed. It seems to me that way. Take this instant when invaded for the first time to free elves from humans. Arc just said Ninja to Chiyome and she instantly became friendly instead of being curious and things went smoothly from that point. And this of every scenario is it invading biggest slave market or other.
To me, it seems that story is a little bit of rush. I haven’t read the Manhwa of this anime so I don’t know if the writer himself has written a story like this or if the story was rushed in anime production.
Now I want to talk about characters- My favorite character in this series is Ponta. I don’t think there is a reason to explain if you have watched the anime. And if you haven’t seen then he takes a look at the image. I don’t know its gender but he is definitely a cute one. And he acts like one just like Tony Tony Chopper( one Piece).
Apart from that, every other character seems fine to me. I would talk about Ariane and Chiyome in the Waifu section.
Now comes the most important section of this Blog how much I would rate this anime. Let’s take a look at the parameter-
Storyline and Concept- 0.75 Point
The storyline consists of magic and is isekai based for that I would like to give this anime 0.50 points.
The concept is not unique as there is almost a similar anime to this one which is overlord so 0.25 point for this one.
Magic And Skills- 1 Point
Magic Spells are totally Op I loved dimension teleport and other spells that were displayed till now all are OP spells and I think most of the isekai miss these types of magic except Overlord. He is truly Overlord.
And About the skill that Arc displays are fabulous more than this, it might have been a little bit boring to me.
So I would like to give 1 point to anime for this thing.
Ecchi- 1 Point
This is my personal take- I don’t like ecchi content but a little bit of ecchi here and there is fine by me, But if there is too much ecchi, then I lose interest. And for this thing, I would give this anime full number as there are zero ecchi scenes till now.
Waifu- 1 Point
I know we still lack information about Ariane but she is definitely a Waifu material for sure and for this one Skeleton gets 1 point.
Anime Pace- 0.75 Point
As I explained earlier character introduction and other aspects of anime are a little bit fast-paced and for that, I would like to cut 0.25 points as it didn’t affect the storyline much.
So overall the Skeleton Knight gets 4.50/ 5. From my point of view.
Tell me about your views in the comment section if agree with me. If your view differs then tell me so.
Ecchi And Waifu
I know some of you love ecchi anime but it is not in my case. I don’t like ecchi though I can see a little bit of ecchi content here and there. But too much ecchi in any anime is not good for me. I totally lose interest in anime.
I know some of you are always looking forward to ecchi anime but it is not my piece of cake.
But for waifu characters, I have a different opinion altogether. I’m always looking forward to such characters and in Skeleton Knight ‘Ariane’ is the best Waifyu material in my opinion.
In regard to overpowereness this anime does not lack in any aspect. But Arc is not as overpowered as Aizen from Overlord.
Spells used till now are definitely overpowered spells. Such as Dimension teleport, Mass teleport, Hell Fire, Healing Spell, Mass Revive Spell, and Rock Magic spell I don’t remember the name of that spell. These spells definitely are high-grade magic.
In terms of sheer raw power it also not lacking as we have seen in the 11 episodes (if I’m correct) Arc lifts huge and I really mean huge sentinel from the ground and gave it a slam. Which is totally badass in my eyes.
One thing that he lacks is sword skill as we saw when was spring with Ariane’s Mom. Though this is what makes it more interesting to watch as it gives hope that there is more monsters stronger than our protagonist Arc.
But in the case of Aizen from Overlord, it is exactly the opposite I don’t think there is any monster or human stronger than him out there. Till date, I remember the war Aizen fought against humans. What was that totally overkill in every aspect? Totally loved it.
Overall anime is superb in every aspect and I would definitely suggest you to watch it once if haven’t yet. And if have already watched it then let me know your views in the comment section down below.
Here is a quick summary of season 1 if you want to know more about the story of the anime.
Skeleton Knight In Another World follows Arc who teleported into the game he was playing and he has become the character he was playing with. This character originally was a high-level hero with high-grade magical equipment, magic, power and etc.
He begins his journey from the outskirts of a continent. And begins his journey by saving a Nobel lady from thugs. With the motivation to earn money, he goes into the capital, and there he met with Arian an elf who is there on a mission. And like this, our protagonist begins his new journey in this fantasy world.
My personal Favourite Moment
My personal favorite moments I have already mentioned in the adobe sections but if you have skipped them tension, not I’m mentioning them again.
The first one was when Arc made his entrance by slicing thugs in half. Secondly, I loved when Ponta was introduced in the anime. The third and final moment is totally badass Arc lifted a really huge sentinel in the air and then slammed him.
