Thankfully, this unwanted adventurer will find a bunch of eager fans in the west.

Yesterday, J-Novel Club announced that they picked up the global English digital rights to Yu Okano and illustrator Jaian’s The Unwanted Undead Adventurer (Nozomanu Fushi no Boukensha) light novels. The first half of the first volume is currently available on the J-Novel Club website for subscribers. A preview is also available for all readers.

The first eBook in the series will hit retailers in late April 2018.

Overlap released the first volume of The Unwanted Undead Adventurer under their main imprint on October 25, 2017. The series currently spans two volumes, with the second book hitting retailers on December 25.

J-Novel Club describes the title as:

Rentt Faina, a twenty-five-year-old adventurer, has been hacking away at monsters for a decade. However, without much talent for the job, Rentt finds himself stuck hunting Slimes and Goblins for meager amounts of coin every day. Little does he know, all this is about to change when he comes across a seemingly undiscovered path in the Labyrinth of the Moon’s Reflection.

What awaits him at the end of the path, however, is neither treasure nor riches, but a legendary dragon that wastes no time swallowing him whole! Waking up a short time later, Rentt finds himself not quite dead, but not very alive either— He is nothing more than a pile of bones! Armed with nothing but his trusty sword, tool belt, and ghoulish new looks, Rentt sets off on his quest as a newly reborn Skeleton to achieve Existential Evolution, hoping to one day return to civilization with a more human form.

Will Rentt succeed, or will the labyrinth consume him for the rest of his un-death…?
