Manga followers gamer who wakes up as skeleton in game world

Seven Seas Entertainment announced on Thursday that it has licensed the Skeleton Knight in Another World (Gaikotsu Kishi-sama, Tadaima Isekai e Odekakechū or Skeleton Knight, going out to the parallel universe) light novels and their manga adaptation. The first light novel volume is slated for print and digital release on June 11, 2019, while the first manga volume is slated for print and digital release on July 9, 2019.

Seven Seas describes the story:

One day, a gamer played video games until he fell asleep…and when he woke up, he found himself in the game world–as a skeleton! Equipped with the powerful weapons and armor of his avatar but stuck with its frightening skeletal appearance, Arc has to find a place for himself in this new, fantastical land. All his hopes for a quiet life are dashed when he crosses paths with a beautiful elven warrior, setting him on a journey full of conflict and adventure.

Ennki Hakari launched the novels on the Shōsetsuka ni Narō (Let's be Novelists) website in October 2014, and Overlap published the first volume with illustrations by KeG in June 2015. Overlap published the eighth volume on March 25.

Akira Sawano (A Bridge to the Starry Skies character design) launched the manga adaptation (pictured right) on Overlap's Comic Gardo website in February 2017. The third compiled volume will ship in Japan on September 25.
