Score: 7/10

Skeleton Soldier Couldn’t Protect the Dungeon is yet another comic series that takes a protagonist, gives them video game oriented abilities, and places them into a fantasy world. It’s pretty much a well established genre now. What this series does differently is that our protagonist is not a human, or a hero, or even a slime. Our protagonist is a skeleton.

Skeleton Soldier takes place in a fantasy world. The story centers on a nameless skeleton who dies and then wakes up at the moment he was first raised from the dead, but with all the power he had when he died. So begins the story of a skeleton who cannot truly die and who seeks to protect a master he has yet to meet.

This is pretty much a standard genre story, except with the skeleton twist. Our protagonist is unexpectedly powerful and defeats a lot of people who overestimate their abilities. The biggest twist is that the skeleton has lived through all these events already, so he kind of already knows what’s going to happens and has some foresight into events.

The art is fine.

Overall, if you like this genre of video game abilities in a fantasy setting or isekai, then you’ll enjoy this. It’s just another slight twist on the same old genre.

Score: 7/10
