    Dope show, worth the watch..
    Overlord is a pretty great show in the whole "I GOT SUCKED INTO AN MMORP OMFG" genre, but somewhat breaks the cliche by playing the line between good + evil. Definitely a favourite of mine, would recommend giving it a shot!

    A Great Series to watch
    Overlord is a fantasy adventure that unlike most anime features the main characters as being evil rather than good. The story takes a unique aspect towards it through a series of plots and twists that create a luring scene for viewers. Though, I enjoyed the series, it seemed rushed in regards to each series having 13 episodes and some of the story takes place for 6 episodes or more, this makes it ...

    Epic sereis, must watch!
    Even tho this is a series where the protagonist is "stuck in a game", the focus is definitely not on that. It's more about the world itself, the magic, monsters and all of that. I absolutely love that he is not your average mildly stupid, a will that goes beyond logic, i want to be "bla" etc. kind of character. He is very much in the grey zone I even dare say he is more "evil" then "good". I ...

    "A story is only as good as its villain.”
    “A story is only as good as its villain.”-Luke Taylor.
    This show takes a whole new meaning to this, the villain is often the antagonist and never really the protagonist, while we see the Villain as the Protagonist, this is unique and in itself deserves a high rating, but they made him a great protagonist where we understand the logic even if in-humane, it astounds people that he was just a normal ...

    Possibly the best anime in my opinion.
    As for the story it's exactly the kind of thing I enjoy and it also doesn't (Most of the time) spend forever on other characters other than the main protagonist. As for Ainz/Momonga's abilities and over all character I love it, more than saitama because he's not just there and complacent. Don't get me wrong I love an MC that doesn't care and is OP as hell but saitama is more focused on the comedy ...

    An amazing show but bring back season one (Can't view it in UK)
    This is an amazing show but I can't go in to much detail as it would spoil things. I binge watched all 3 seasons in two days.

    I recommend watching it with subs in the original Jap audio the English voices don't feel right especially the main character

    Episodes on minor side characters are actually interesting and not just filler. The fact you actually get to learn and know stuff about ...

    good to be bad or bad to be good.?
    I really enjoy following the story here, it feels like i should be following one of the adventurers or the knights protecting the king, but no we get what would be in any other story the bad guy, the overpowered undead bent on taking over the world. only from the other sid,e you get quite a fun look at what that could be like for the overlord himself living the life in his tomb with his ...

    More, please.Brilliant!
    That's pretty much all there is to say. It's great. One of the best shows I have watched. The story is gripping, animation quality is top notch, everything is top notch. There are a few tiny annoying filler type bits that will take up some episodes, but on the whole it's very good.

    Pros: Everything

    Cons: Not enough. I want more.

    Great show, Worth watching
    The MC in this anime is OP but it leaves you with the thought that there might be someone in the world he ends up in that might be stronger than him. The development of the MC is also good as the anime goes on you learn about the world with the MC who also knows nothing about the new world and its laws.

    Why be the hero when you can be the -real- bad guy?
    Very interesting character designs, and a truly inspiring premise: being the only one left to see something you worked hard for be shut down forever.
    Every scene with the MC serves to convince me of his bad-assery.
    Im very pumped for any continuation!
