In a city of the dead, long since ruined and far from human civilization, lives a single human child. His name is Will, and he’s being raised by three undead: the hearty skeletal warrior, Blood; the graceful mummified priestess, Mary; and the crotchety spectral sorcerer, Gus. The three pour love into the boy, and teach him all they know. But one day, Will starts to wonder: “Who am I?” Will must unravel the mysteries of this faraway dead man’s land, and unearth the secret pasts of the undead. He must learn the love and mercy of the good gods, and the bigotry and madness of the bad. And when he knows it all, the boy will take his first step on the path to becoming a Paladin. “I promised you. It’s gonna take a while, but I’ll tell you everything. This is the story of the deaths of many heroes. It’s the story of how we died, and it’s the reason you grew up here.”

The Faraway Paladin or Paladin of the End (as it is listed) is a very well written series and one of my all time favorites already even with it being fairly new. The Faraway Paladin is not your typical isekai novel and it most definitely doesn't have all the flaws that many other isekai novels have. You can tell shortly into volume 1 that this story is going to be special.

First off, something that caught my eye when reading it was that even though this series is Japanese... more>> it doesn't really feel like your typical light novel and definitely has a "Western" style/feel to it which is also influenced by the translation. I still did not expect to have this refreshing feeling I got regardless of that. It really does help that this series has a very good English translation by J-Novel Club and they really do deserve way more attention.

Secondly, the characters in this story are all very well written and they all really grow on you fairly quickly. There is such a variety of characters and they all fit their roles perfectly and everybody seems to have something interesting about themselves. Even the "villains" aren't purely evil! So far they all have their own reasons for what they do and why they do it and they won't easily change their ways just because you asked nicely. The amazing and unique world the author has created can only be enhanced when you have characters like these.

I promise you won't be disappointed. <<less

This novel got top 5 position in syosetu. It got an overwhelmingly positive review on the syosetu page. One that even call it a masterpiece with great world building and 3 dimensional character.

The story was just at the very beginning in chapter 2 but I think the writing of the author are pretty good.

Too bad it isnt translated frequently and is translated by mtl with the possiblity of being dropped.

This novel is just... too good. After reading a lot of JP light and web novels, I've gained inside on how some novels and characters seem to be a copy of each other. There r a few novels that can give u a real joy, and pleasure. "Paladin of the End" is one of them. The MC, side characters, world building... Everything is too Godly... I can't read other novels after reading this one, because others seem to be lacking compared to this. It is my own opinion, and I... more>> think giving 5 stars is the least I can do.

P.s. I have some plans about translating this novel. August will be very busy month, but after it I will have plenty of time. I will start translating it after August unless someone takes it. <<less

So I bought the first volume and read up to part 6 of the second volume and I have to say this novel is ridiculously good so far. This is entirely subjective but I really like the main character, it's rare to read a novel with a religious protagonist these days and while I'm an atheist myself I find I can really relate to him on many levels. I find myself rather disappointed with how similar the protagonists of other novels are these days, with the typical arrogant and morally... more>> bankrupt xianxia MC's and the annoying humble and spineless japanese MC's that flaunt there japanese values everywhere they go. The MC of this novel moves on from his past life and fully embraces his current one.

The supporting characters are also amazingly written as well as the world building. It is clear that the author has very ambitious plans for this work and the first volume is pretty much setting up a backstory. Although I have some concerns for the directions this story is heading in seeing as how by the end of the first volume
Spoiler

the MC is already pretty overpowered, it seems like in the future the author will either focus less on violent conflict or even more powerful enemies will appear and there will be some massive power creep.

Not your standard isekai, the author wrote this with tons of western influences. The only cheat he has is his starting point in life, being raised by the high level undead of heroes.

The author mentioned tabletop gaming was one of his inspirations, so if you've played pathfinder or any dnd really, you'll notice some shared races and such.

You can read volume 2 prepub on j-novel club's site Via paid subscription, until the novel is fully released

I have read the J-Novel Club translation of the novel up to volume 3. This is one of the most mature Isekai novels I have read. It doesn't use the usual Isekai tropes despite being one which is really great.

Spoiler

There isn't even a female love interest yet. Bromance on the other hand is great

The translation is very good as well.

I read the English translation of J-Novel Club for Vol.1 and the following expressions are based on it.

The author wrote that this is his first (serious?) novel, but it's not written like an amateur would! It is influenced by tabletop role-playing games with fleshed out and good characters and the story has that vivid feeling and authenticity to it. It is a isekai-story, but honestly: it could have done fine without it. For me, the whole reincarnation-thing feels more like "because of the hype" and the story has no real... more>> dependence on it. If SAO is like Harry Potter, then the Faraway Paladin is more like Lord of the Rings (or R. A. Salvatore's Forgotten Realms saga). Everyone, who likes good fantasy novel will like the Faraway Paladin. Please at least give it a try until Chapter One in the LN, it is worth it! <<less
