The Faraway Paladin Premieres October 2021

The Faraway Paladin

The upcoming anime adaptation of The Faraway Paladin (Saihate no Paladin) will premiere later this year in October.

The series follows William G. Maryblood, a young man who was abandoned in the frontier. He’s taken in by three undead, the skeleton warrior Blood, the mummy priestess Mary, and the ghostly mage Augustus.

Together, the three raise William while watching over the seal of the High King, a powerful demon that the three sealed away when they were alive. As William grows older, encouraged by the goodliness of his adoptive parents he’s soon forced to say goodbye after swearing his life to Gracefeel, the goddess of flame and passing on.

The series began in 2015 as a novel series by Kanata Yanagino. Since its inception, the series has gone on to spawn a light novel, a manga series, and now an anime when it premieres in 2021.

A trailer for the anime can be found below.

At the time of publishing, an English release for the anime has yet to be announced. The manga and light novel series are published in English by J-Novel Club.
