    Overlord, underrated fun.
    I remember when this show first came out a few seasons back. It was unfortunate that it came out in an off season when people were already burnt out on the MMORPG genera of anime due to shows like SAO and Log Horizon. I also seem to remember that Overlord was not licensed for simulcast by any major companies so it was difficult for people to watch during the season that it aired (I believe ...

    Easily One of my Favorites.
    So after Crunchyroll and Funimation high fived I have been waiting for Overlord to show up on here. Its a premise we all know, guy gets teleported to a world he is/isn't familiar with (MMORPG) and has to find a way to cope with the confusion that is laid out in front of him. Ainz Ooal Gown (Momonga) the main character quickly understands what has happen and doesn't harp on the "omg what happened" ...

    Can't wait for the next season
    Hurray! This is a show where the characters strength stays consistently overpowered! Just a shame it's so short.
    It's always annoying watching something where characters progress and get stronger, but then don't actually appear to be able to beat the first set of guys or people of equivalent strength with ease. Did you get stronger or not?! This show doesn't do that though so yay!

    Cream of the crop from 2015
    This is a "game world becomes real" style anime. Not an original idea but definitely best executed. Unlike SAO the character of the player trapped is top level and owner of top guild on the server. He stays logged in until the supposed time the servers are to go off line for the last time. As the clock hits 0:00:00 the world becomes real and he is trapped in it. That's when his adventure truly ...

    My favorite "Trapped in a game" anime.
    Think Log Horizon, but with more action and a focus on one character. Or think SAO, but not garbage. I've loved this show for years now, and I'm thrilled that it finally came to Crunchyroll. Of all the shows that I think need a second season, this is in the top five. All hail the mighty magic skeleton!

    An epic tale of a spooky skeleton man
    Happy Crunchyroll got this.
    Overlord is one of my favorite series of all time (I also buy the light novels).
    It is another one of those trapped in a game series, but the main character actually goes from in the game, to a real fantasy world, so i hope that's not a turn off for some people. The main character's, .....well character is also an evil-type being, so he needs to act accordingly. I'll ...

    Love the first 13 episodes, but think Game of Thrones
    The first 13 episodes of this anime are incredible. Great production value and story all around. From the animation and action to the music to the actually-unique characters to the pacing and plot, this show is definitely worth a look if you are a fan of fantasy and/or the "stuck in a VRMMO" trope, without that trope getting too heavy handed. Unlike shows like SAO or .hack//, Overlord focuses more ...

    Overlord is legendary and You should WATCH IT
    This anime is my favorite of all time. Read the light novels first. The anime covers the first three and it is confirmed getting a second season. Ainz Ooal Gown is a badass. Why aren't you watching this anime??????????

    You should do yourself a favor and watch it


    Really it is the best.

    Overlord: Short and Sweet
    Overlord is a real treat of an anime, the old worn out premise of being pulled into a MMORPG but with fun and entertaining characters and a well developed world. If you are looking for a short series or just something to pass the time I highly recommend Overlord. Iwish there was more to watch.

    Original reviewer on Funi
    So, I was one of the very first people to review this series when it landed on Funimation, I remember it was sooo underrated when it aired in 2015 and I was worried none would see it. But, despite everything this series has grown and maintained its fanbase beautifully which should attest to how great this series is. I am excited a second season is coming, because this is one of the few legendary ...
