  • One of my Favorite Anime
    Overlord puts a refreshing twist on the Isekai subgenre, a subgenre constantly plagued with subpar content and lackluster protagonists, with the protagonist this time being not an O.P. hero but rather an O.P. villain. He is the overlord of evil minions capable of annihilating entire kingdoms that worship him as a literal god. One would think this would be the usual Isekai experience; however, as ...

  • Sucked Into Another World - With a Twist
    Loving the whole concept of being a non-human and not being the person who gets sucked in to save the world as a good hero. The first season is admittedly the best, but the second and third are expanding the characters and the storyline overall and making it more interesting to see what happens at the end. If you like these types of shows but are wanting something beyond the usual hero, this is ...

  • My goodness where this anime is amazing
    My favorite anime. Such a unique idea that was pulled off brilliantly, from the characters, to the story, to the branches of story. Think about it, a bunch of no-life guys form a guild on a MMORPG. They become the #1 guild and the most powerful beings in the game. Then the game is subject to being deleted. And then it doesn't delete at the scheduled time, instead everything become real and the ...

    Best anime ever 10/10
    Watched season 1 and 2 over 5 times now, I just love everything about this show, I can not find anything that I would like to change. This is like the only show that has ever made me want to buy merchandise. Every time I rewatch the show I find out stuff that I did not think about the first time I saw it. It gives me a new perspective of the show every time I watch it. Just love this show!

  • wonderful show with a fresh spin on the isekai and fantasy concept
    wonderful show with a fresh spin on the isekai and fantasy concept. not only is it a lot different from the stale isekai formula but the concept and point of view make it really interesting. personally my favorite thing about overlord is how the mc is actually the villian from the rest of the worlds point of view.

  • One of my favorites.
    I quit watching this mid-S1 because an episode pissed me off but I decided to give it another try after I noticed S3 was coming out. I'm VERY glad that I did because I originally went into it thinking that it would follow other "trapped in game" animes. And once I let this anime develop in its own right then I fell in love with it because it's DIFFERENT. You'll get mad, excited, sad, a bit ...

    Comedic Fantasy with OP Characters
    So, there's a trend lately of anime with ridiculously OP characters that don't take themselves too seriously, and this is most certainly an example of that. So, if that doesn't appeal to you, this show won't either. At first, this looks like this will be an SAO-style anime, but once the protagonist encounters enemies in this world, it's obvious he outclasses them on every level. Momonga is a ...

  • Amazing show love the RPG Aspect!
    This show took me by surprise because I’ve heard so much about it and I finally ran out of anime to watch and got sick of rewatching the same series 100 times and ventured out to try some new shows and this show hooked me very FAST! Some shows take 50 episodes or more before it even BEGINS to get good! But this show hooked me fast and I couldn’t help but binge watch the series over a few days and ...

    This has become my favorite series, ever.
    Overlord has become the #1 for me. It's the only series I have waited on almost religiously every week to be released since I discovered it, since when DragonBall Z was airing throughout the initial 3 arcs. I refuse to read the manga until the animation has "completed;" so I can re-experience it in it's written form.

    There have been so many entries into this genre of anime, but I feel like ...
