This Movie is a summary of the first half of the anime Overlord.

There’s basically nothing more to say, if you've watched the anime watching the movie will probably disappoint some of you, since it doesn’t add more to the plot of the story which we have been dying to know more off.

However, in a sense the movie helps hyped up the story for the upcoming Second season. It also help us remind of what happened in the story, so when the second season hits we would felt like theres no gap from season 1 to season 2.

Overall the movie was bog standard. I enjoy the read more

As many others said this is a recap movie, however, i would like to add a lot of people who said there wasnt much new scenes is greatly mistaken. Sure it didnt make a huge impact but there are quite a few extra scenes that wasnt in the anime.

** Spoiler Alert **

In the beginning there was the dive scene.
Momonga chatting with Sebas was modified a bit.
Lots of pan out scenery shots of the cities and Nazarick.
The slane theocracy mission.
And a few more.

** End Spoiler **

Again it doesnt make a huge impact if you did watch the anime but it does add a read more

I have to say, however, that even as a fan of the original series, I was quite disappointed. So here I am writing a review for anyone who might be about to dive into the movie with any sort of heightened expectations.

The recap is basically just read more

Nothing much to say. Like what the description says, it's the recap on the first half of the TV series (ep 1~7). It's been so long since I've watch the series so when the season 2 was announce, the recap movies was a good refresher to quench my hype. They even promise to add some scenes. Turns out it was a disappointment... The added "scene was just *SPOILER ALERT* the MC in his real body booting up the dive machine and that's it... They even remove some parts (example: where the party Swords of Darkness hired the MC, the MC showed his face under his read more
