Seeing as how Overlord is getting an anime, I figured I might set up a discussion for the original source material.
In the off chance you haven't heard of it yet:

"The story begins with Yggdrasil, a popular online game which is quietly shut down one day. However, the protagonist Momonga decides to not log out. Momonga is then transformed into the image of a skeleton as "the most powerful wizard." The world continues to change, with non-player characters (NPCs) beginning to feel emotion. Having no parents, friends, or place in society, this ordinary young man Momonga then strives to take over the new world the game has become."

Written by Maruyama Kugane. It was originally a WN, but somewhere along the lines I guess it got popular enough for him to start writing the LN series, which is vastly different from the WN series. Albedo doesn't even exist in the WNs. But anyways. The artist that does the godly illustrations for the LN is So-bin.

There are currently 7 volumes produced for the LN. And there is a translation project done on SkyTheWood. They're currently up to Vol 3, chapter 4. They release a new part or chapter every Saturday. And there is a google drive with all the current translated chapter, just google it.

So, now that that is out of the way, let's talk about one of the most awesome LNs to ever exist that needs to be licensed.

Also the anime PV.

There was a massive chapter release on Saturday. Great fight. Answered a few questions. Some feels at the end. Overall a very satisfying release.

Sigh, nobody seems interested. But you'll see. You all will see.

Papa Bones is an undead of the highest order. He doesn't need things like that. But you'll find as you read he is by no means the cruelest individual in the tomb.

Would you happen to know where I can find any of the novel illustrations? The place I found doesn't seem to have some of the images at a better quality. Also, I hope the anime attracts new fans to the series. It's so good!

I would also like to point out that I haven't used this account in a while and I was surprised I remembered what email I registered it to, let alone the password.

It's almost too sad knowing that they'll eventually all be slaughtered by Ainz and his army. Though I'm really digging their POV of the whole situation, it's a nice change of pace.

They won't ALL get killed. Who knows, some of them might have a bring future ahead.
