Plot Summary


Since appearing in another world, Ains has sent out daily commands as the ruler of the Great Tomb of Nazarick. He also maintains his alter-ego Momon, the strongest adventurer in E-Rantel, to gather funds and keep an ear to the ground. He sets out on quests considered suitable for a adamantite class adventurer, like defeating the Gigant Basilisk. Meanwhile, Ains returns to Nazarick and asks Albedo for a full status report.

So great to be back with this show considering how notorious Madhouse is for not doing sequels.

Episode 1

Well, this episode is all about getting reacquainted with the main cast, while introducing characters who will become prominent moving forward. Here, Albedo continues to be lovesick for Ains, Hamsuke continues to be a kickass pet, Aura is downing a triple cheeseburger made of A-7 beef, and Shalltear is drinking and apparently still has some memory of her previous life. And now, a lizardman village is being invaded, where things will pick up from. It does the job, but now the big test comes next.

Episode 1

Hmm, I think this first episode is a decent start with what it had to work with so far.

It started off with talk about vampires.
This felt like a solid way to reintroduce the series again with Ainz fighting in his knight armor.

Albedo's return was quite the way as I had expected with her admiration towards Ainz. It felt more like a buildup episode though for the remainder of the season as we are introduced to some of the lizardmen. With 13 episodes, I'm rather curious to see how they plan to showcase the other characters, outside of the usual Nazarick group.

That ending gives me the chills. I have a feeling we'll see a lot of cliffhangers this season.

Wow a lot of threads cast loose in this episode. there's the mysterious group that mind controlled Shalltear, there's the lizardmen. there's whoever want's to kill the lizardmen, there's the allies of the big (silver?) dragon and there's the kingdom where nazarick resides. Then there's all the stuff that Ains has cast to the wind. A false Nazarick, El Rantel guild work, Cocutys(sp?) sent to make war on someone ... Theres going to be a lot going on in the next few episodes.
oh and Rubik's Cube.

This is a great start to the new season. There seems to be a new woman who also wants to have Lord Ains' kid. ( I'm still not sure how a skeleton is supposed to have kids, though )

It will be interesting to find out who the other players are who got transferred from our world to this world

Episode 1

Things start off with a knight reporting to someone about a vampire and that it's not match for her. She than is told of AInz and wonders how strong their child would be. We are than introduced to the king who asks to meet AInz to thank him for saving his loyal knight. Than we see Ainz take down a lizard and soon returns to Nazarick to hand over the map to his generals and go over how the fake Nazarick is doing. While going over things with Albedo he hears about Shalltear drinking and feeling guilty about what she did. At the end we finally meet the lizard men who seem to be invaded by someone.

The first episode pretty much introduced some new characters and is setting things up for events to come. Albedo trying to take her wifely duties seriously and Shalltear is still depressed of what happened she has turned to drinking. With the way things are going we can expect another great season.

I honestly prefer seeing Ainz fight in his lich form more than his knight form.

Lich Ainz fights like Shiroe from LH

Knight Ainz fights like Kirito from SAO

Papa Bones is back! (and no, I do not mean Elias). This picks up right where season 1 left off. It doesn't even feel like the start of a new season.

The new OP and ED are good but the last ones were full of so much more hype. I'm disappointed MYTH & ROID got a new vocalist. This style feels so different from their previous songs.

Well, obviously with his boner. You're welcome


I can't remember too much of last season, so the number of threads this episode was a bit crazy.
What I do remember is Albedo huehue. I half expected her to be lying naked in his room #disappointed.

As others have said, I prefer the old OP & ED.

Ep 1


There was definitely a lot going on for a first episode. It was nice to get a brief scene with each of the characters from the original season, but man was there a ton of new ones. Rubik's cube vampire(?) girl has my attention at the moment. I adore her design. Seeing Shalltear turn to alcohol in an effort to drown her shame was humorous. Not a whole lot else has happened yet, but I'm guessing the lizard people at the end are going to be front and center in this season.
