The anime will feature the following cast:
Katsumi Ono (Hypnosis Mic -Division Rap Battle- Rhyme Anima, Hataraki Man, Girly Air Force , Senki Zesshō Symphogear sequels) is directing the anime at Studio KAI and HORNETS, and Takeshi Kikuchi (Night Wizard The Animation, Ragnastrike Angels) is supervising the series scripts. Tōru Imanishi (Girly Air Force, Super Cub, WorldEnd) is designing the characters based on the original novel illustrations by KeG. The artists eba and Tsubasa Ito (Iwa-Kakeru! -Sport Climbing Girls-, The Price of Smiles) are composing the music.
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. The series now has 1.5 million copies (in print and digital) in circulation.
