After announcing it will be discontinuing all service, the internet game ‘Yggdrasil’ shut down… That was the plan, but for some reason, the player character did not log out some time after the server was closed. NPCs start to become sentient.

    I finally found time to watch S4 of the anime, and while I am enjoying it quite a bit so far, I they took their time more and fleshed out the supporting characters a bit further. That said, is it just me or does Overlord always have the best and beautiful ED art fking evar? Like every season, its just gorgeous portraits of the characters, but it's just that and they're feaking GORGEOUS. I love the minor movements included this year with weapons, blood, and feathers, etc. The music is typically top tier too. Myth & Roid banged them out before and whoever does S4 is starting to quickly grow on me. Shame they've got a massive uphill battle in comparisons due to Hydra Lovin it! Edit: While I'm glad they're covering more ground, getting closer to the LNs, I think I preferred the older approach, even if it took years to get a new season. One of the novels biggest strengths BY FAR(imo at least) is the authors world building talent. It's completely lost in the anime when they speed things up

    This is a one in a million type of book. From the worldbuilding to the character building, the plot and sub plots are amazing. Some people may call me an Overlord Stan but I don't really care, this novel and anime are forever my number 1.

    So many people asking where to continue, but, my only advice is that you start from the beginning. This novel is very well written, though the end feels like it was cut short. This is an amazingly good novel and if you start from in between you are missing a lot of sub-plots and some of them are really crucial to the story

      NO. Total there will be 18 volumes because Vol. 15 was so big it was made into Vol. 15 & 16 and there are 2 volumes left.

        LOTM and RI are the 2 best you can read. My house of horrors, release that witch, omniscient readers viewpoint, mushoku tensei, my senior brother is too steady, kidnapped dragons, shadow slave, second coming of gluttony, the experimental log of a crazy lich, a step into the past, city of sin, villain retirement, paragon of sin, the first order, apotheosis of a demon, I was caught up in a hero summoning, Mediterranean Hegemon of Ancient Greece, dungeon defence, mother of learning, are a few of what id consider top tier, honestly ive read so many that I'd have to go write a list to keep track, if you have any specific likes and dislikes I can reccomend some more.

        I haven't really read that many novels. Good ones for me were: 1. Lord of Mysteries 2. Reverend Insanity 3. Warlock of Magus World 4. Kidnapped Dragons 5. Lout of Count’s Family 6. Regressor Instruction Manual (not in order)

        Up voting for Kidnapped Dragons alone. I adore that novel so bloody much. One of the very few novels I would put on the same pedestal as Overlord. I will disagree with Reverend Insanity though. I love 2/3 of that story, but once the GLORIOUS CCP stepped in and told the author to tow the party line, the immediate decrease in quality is apparent. You can literally tell which chapter the government stepped in, it's that easy to tell. Unfortunately it ruins the end of the novel, leaving the readers balls' forever blue.

      You better off reading from the start than anything. The seasons do not cover everything going on in the novel and I doubt they ever will in terms of missing characters, events, and even conspiracies. *Cough* Certain Hit Squad *Cough* Plus, NGL, Season 4 was pretty terrible. I don't know if it was animation or what, but it bored me to tears and I feel reading in novel was better than just watching anime.

      Season 4 ended off by covering volume 14… but it skipped volume 13. Volume 13 is gonna be covered in the upcoming movie, next year.
