Arc is set to face a powerful monster as he executes the mission in the new episode of "Skeleton Knight in Another World" anime. Will he emerge as a victor in his first-ever assignment?

In the previous episode, titled "The Wandering Knight Sets Out to Make the World a Better Place Attachments Area," a video game enthusiast found himself in a medieval fantasy game as a character named Holy Knight Arc.
