The formula is, without a doubt, becoming increasingly stale. Thankfully, the show still has its moments of surprise that keep things interesting.
If we didn’t get any of Foresight’s story, this episode would have been far more palatable. However, it would have also lost out on much of its impact, even if said impact was heavily manipulated by the directorial choices this episode.
Overlord doubles down on the mayhem as the team of Workers are put to the test. Will they survi-ha ha ha. This episode was just plain fun.
Overlord’s new arc made the world feel far bigger than before. New kingdom, new characters, and death flags, death flags everywhere!
With episode 5, the Carne Village arc closes out not with violent, overpowered spectacle, but with heart.
To be blunt, this episode bored me.
One of the big successes of this episode was how well it integrated Nazarick’s denizens into the episode’s plot.
…Yeah, I know. Kind of scraping the bottom of the barrel on this one. Oh well.
This was another solid episode of Overlord.
Whereas the premiere for season 2 acted as “a reminder of season 1 events while also setting up plot threads for later”, season 3's premiere was more akin to “how’re things going in HQ?” This was a pretty low-key, slice of life episode that shone the spotlight on the denizens of the Tomb of Nazarick, and it was…
The new season of anime is finally here and I can definitively say that it looks pretty awful. Especially compared to last season. Of the myriad of new anime coming out this season, I’m only interested in a handful and most of them are adaptations of works I’m already familiar with.
It’s that time of year again where the weather becomes unbearable and the only cure for this heat is more anime. Yes, the Summer Season of anime is right around the corner and I have barely enough motivation to try out every show like I did last season. I’m participating in the SixTAY day writing challenge over on TAY…
It’s again the time of the year, when we are slowly coming from one season to another, turning back and reviewing what we saw and in what we invested time past few months. Since there will be again quite a lot of shows to cover, to make this little bit easier to digest, I didn’t include synopsis for the shows (go and…
One of the most prominent trends in Japanese culture over the past several years has been the isekai/tensei genre. A specific take on the classic fantasy story where the protagonist finds themselves in an alternate world somehow. In a large majority of these stories, its main appeal centers around a power fantasy of…
There are times where you’re blindsided by something that your jaw immediately drops to the floor. I had such an experience when I decided to check the date today and realized that it had been roughly 2 weeks since the last AniDROP and it was a Wednesday… Oopps
The 2nd season of Overlord will air in January 2018.
In the wraparound jacket of the newest volume of the Overlord´s Light novel it has been revealed that a compilation films it´s in the works.
One young man finds himself suddenly stranded in a strange new world in the body of his Lich Lord avatar from his favorite MMO. Coming to terms with his new power, as well as his newly sentient crew of former NPC’s can he find the strength to master himself, and perhaps conquer this new world?
Momonga was the guild leader of one of the most prestigious guilds in a famous VRMMO (virtual reality massively multiplayer RPG), but over time he and his guildmates got too busy and ceased playing. Now the VRMMO they all played is being shut down, so he logs in the game one last time to have a moment of nostalgia…
The way I usually judge music is if I would enjoy listening it while I take my often-daily runs and man does Clattanoia knock it out of the park. I love the explosion into the song; it just gets me so pumped up. Plus, I really enjoy the visuals during this section because it just looks so freaking cool because…
