    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 ...

    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" ...

    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.

    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!

    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!

    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 ...

  • One of the Best "Trapped In Game" Anime Available
    There are many isekai animations out there. A lot of these anime rarely emphasize on the little details present within the world they're in, which includes the economy, organizations, etc. Overlord however, accomplishes that magnificently within its LN series and has been well adapted into an animation. It also includes a lot of the overbearing and nemesis action scenes that other isekai ...

  • all time favorite anime
    This is one of my all time favorite anime. After watching the anime i went on to read all the light novels in an attempt to finish the story. The light novels were even better than the anime was, by a long shot, and the story keeps getting infinitely more interesting. i am still praying for a second season, which i hear is in the works. (YAS!)

  • Absolutely AMAZING show
    I LOOOOVE this anime, great pacing, yea maybe could go a bit slower ig but i feel like it was fine, the only gripe i have with this show was THERE ISNT MORE. The voice acting is superb, the plot is fairly amusing whilst showing off how serious some of the chars act just an all around good watch.
