Skeleton Knight in Another World (Japanese: 骸骨騎士様、只今異世界へお出掛け中, Romaji: Gaikotsu Kishi-sama, Tadaima Isekai e Odekake-chū) is a Japanese light novel series written by Ennki Hakari and illustrated by KeG. It began serialization online in October 2014 on the user-generated novel publishing website Shōsetsuka ni Narō. It was later acquired by Overlap, who have published nine volumes since June 2015 under their Overlap Novels imprint.
A manga adaptation with art by Akira Sawano has been serialized online via Overlap's Comic Gardo website since February 2017 and has been collected in nine tankōbon volumes. Both the light novel and manga are licensed in North America by Seven Seas Entertainment.
Synopsis from MAL:
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.
