    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!

    All hail Ainz-sama! Glad to finally see it here
    I've watched this so many times! And read the light novels... So I'm glad it finally made its way to Crunchyroll... and just in time! I hope they also release season two when it airs ^^ I've been following the story for so long, now I just hope licencing allows for viewing everywhere.

    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!

    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.

    Original and extremely well done
    The story is unique from what I've seen, with an interesting take on the whole evil villain trope. To begin with it seems like a show that would have a light plot and be mostly centred on single episode adventures but there's actually a lot of character development too with suprisingly deep back stories.

    Highly recommended

    Best anime I've seen in a long time
    I like anime in this genre "Oh no I got sucked into an MMORPG!" but Overlord puts a twist on it in that the main character is a powerful Lich who has a guild full of powerful NPC's and a fortress full of the best items in the game. This of course leads to a lot of very fun battles where he wipes the floor with his opponents. Very entertaining to watch.

    I hope it stretches for a few more ...

  • 4 but 5 to offset haters
    Hey Reviewers,
    Audiences can find a variety of personality from beginning to end. Some great art, a few great sets, some well-planned gimmicks, & a few recurring themes tie the plot up in a nice bow. There are open-ended storyboard paths that smack of something stupid. Costume changes are nice addins. The most-interesting-man-in-the-world sub-character, hallmark of the current arc, has a more ...

  • Not the average MPO anime
    I love this anime series.A good mix playing the good and evil side. Action, spells, character development.
    Some of the side characters have good development and the strong characters stay strong and OP. Not like in some other stupid anime where there is always someone bigger better and stronger.

    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 ...
