An epic new trailer has been published for Overlord III, the third season of the TV anime adaptation based on the series of dark fantasy light novels written by Kugane Maruyama and illustrated by so-bin about a man who assumes the role of his max-level MMORPG character. The trailer highlights the growing conflict between the knight Gazef Stronoff and the titular overlord, Ainz Ooal Gown.
The original Overlord novels are published in Japan by Enterbrain (a division of Kadokawa), and an English language version of the series is also available from Yen Press. The Overlord TV anime is directed by Naoyuki Itō and features animation by MADHOUSE. Crunchyroll and Funimation currently stream the first two seasons of the Overlord TV anime, and describe the story as follows:
When a popular MMORPG is scheduled to be shut down permanently, veteran player Momonga refuses to log out. As NPCs begin to develop personalities and minds of their own he decides to put his skills to use as the game’s new overlord.
