The final hour of the popular virtual reality game Yggdrasil has come. However, Momonga, a powerful wizard and master of the dark guild Ainz Ooal Gown, decides to spend his last few moments in the game as the servers begin to shut down. To his surprise, despite the clock having struck midnight, Momonga is still fully conscious as his character and, moreover, the non-player characters appear to have developed personalities of their own!
Confronted with this abnormal situation, Momonga commands his loyal servants to help him investigate and take control of this new world, with the hopes of figuring out what has caused this development and if there may be others in the same predicament.
Overlord is honestly pretty good. I waited a bit to start watching it, and I was surprised on how addicting to was to watch. The story is really good. Animation wise, its almost a masterpiece. The characters are so life like, other than the mc for reasons. The soundtrack is a nice thing about this anime. I love this anime, and I will re-watch it until the day that I die. I was really sad I had to wait so long for the second season to come out, so I just re-watched the first for a bit. I never got bored of it.
