In the middle of an epic battle, the valiant Sir Shagrua Edith Lugrid was a hair’s length away from finishing a necromancer called the Corpse God. Their battle reached its climax, with victory within the Shagrua’s grasp. Yet, to everyone’s surprise, the Corpse God used his last resort of sorcery and reverse isekai’d himself, transporting himself to modern-day Shinjuku.
The Corpse God found a second chance in the lifeless body of Polka Shinoyama, a boy slain by an assassin’s blade. Taking this opportunity, the Corpse God assumed Polka’s identity, hoping this new life would grant him a peaceful existence, one he didn’t get in his previous life.
This show was a pleasant surprise. To fans’ delight, it turned out to be a hidden gem. The premise, a character reincarnating from a fantasy world into the real one, may sound familiar, but it’s presented uniquely and intriguingly that we won’t spoil for you.
Our protagonist yearns for a peaceful world where even the departed find happiness, using powers carried over from their previous life. Joining an organization tasked with dealing with threats like the Yakuza, they aim to bring about this peace. Will they succeed? Can they save everyone? And will their companion ever manage to keep her clothes on around them? (Probably not). As the series unfolds, you’ll find out.
