"Let's give One Punch Man season 02 rights to J.C.Staff and make 3 seasons of this isekai skellington shit instead." I guess now we know why it is called MadHouse and not RationalThinkingHouse, amirite. Yet, admirable choice as OPM S2 will most likely be way inferior to Overlord III. We could go as far as say MadHouse has chosen quality over obligatory money grab. Either way, I approve.
In this 3rd season, the flesh-less body of Kirito -- better known as Momonga -- rewards lesser beings, servants and worshipers with pretty promises, and the viewers by bathing naked, all bones and rattles, already in
the first episode. He may have only one -- very red -- ball, but it sure is massive and lewd. No wonder he is so goddamn manly and awesome.
The girls in this season are perfect. We have maidens who slap each others in the face to get some blush look, succubus knights and loli vampiress talking about lesbian sex with heterochromia elf-midget, and real heroines who save little kids from drowning in their own soup.
I was never truly sure if this series tried to be as comedic as it is, but this season surely has been funny. I especially liked the scene where some weird-ass alien horse wouldn't let virgin woman ride it, so she went on top of momongo instead (who is all bone). Now here are few sexual innuendos you don't hear every day, used in one sentence. Also, whenever Momongo says "eeeeeeeeeeh" it sounds as hilarious as "nani" in Jojo's Bizarre Adventure. You know this series is great when it can be compared to Jojo.
Towards the end of S2, Overlord started to suffer from the feel of non-canon side-tracking where the series universe got expanded with irrelevances. Those who found this to be problematic, will most likely hold similar thoughts here as well. Most of the events may feel rather pointless to those who didn't get immersed by this world. However, those who thought Overlord is neat, but still missing some sex appeal and ironic fun, will find this to be the best season yet.
If you've watched and liked the other seasons, you're going to like this. Plain and simple
On a more serious note, Overlord III is really all of the same stuff that made the first two seasons great: good world building, a grand line of characters, a simple branding out story. The show has a sense of progression and the dynamic between Ainz and the floor guardians is enhanced even more in this season resulting (so far) in a really enjoyable experience.
I give it a biased 10 since, as a Light Novel reader, I know the significance of small details that might feel shoehorned in
at the last second. But if I have to rate it off of what happens in the moment, I’d have to give it an 8.
CGI in all anime is a crime against humanity and Overlord is no exception. I totally understand how it makes a scene easier to animate and in the newer episode it’s gotten EXPONENTIALLY better, however CGI will always be CGI.
OOOOOOH THAT SOUNDTRACK!! Overlord’s soundtrack is amazing ACROSS THE BOARD. However, sometimes it kinda feels repetitive between tracks and it’s a little disheartening. But, for the most part, it’s great.
Characters in Overlord are more or less a MASTERPIECE. Sometimes characters feel really fleshed out, just to get one shotted in like ten seconds. (This can be considered good or bad depending on your preference)
It’s Overlord… what more do I have to say?
Overlord is my number one Anime and Light Novel of all time. It’s also one of the best isekai of all time. But if I have to be 100% honest in terms of overall quality, they’re a couple of shows that have it beat.
This is the third installations of Overlord. Sadly it fails not only its predecessor series but even more so the novel.
The precessing series were already cringe-worthy, but they more or less tried to keep to the original novel. But season 3 is up until episode 5 a huge pointless fan-service anime that tries to score with comedy and over-dramatized content.
It has nothing to do with the novel which has plenty of dark elements that makes the whole story as such interesting. With Overlord being a second-rate story to begin with, this just adds to the mostly boring and tedious vibe a viewer will get from
Sadly, as some parts of the novel were interesting enough to read, this anime is not worth to be watched at all. For any serious viewer, who look for a decent story line with a good animation, I recommend you to look elsewhere.
AHHHHHHHHHHHHH I could gush over Overlord forever. But for those of you wondering about Season 3, I'm gonna assume you already know what makes Overlord a great show and dive into my thoughts about this current season.
Watch this show. Season three is showing us that this show has lots more political aspects and character building than ever before, and is starting out, in my opinion, even stronger than in Season two with the lizardmen. This show has amazing potential in its very large cast and dedicates enough time to make you care about them. You WILL be pleased with this season. Bone daddy has
not disappointed us before, and he isn't now.
As for everything else, the art, sound (especially the opening), and the feel of the show are great as usual, and its good to be back with this series. Hop on, and get ready for a political Isekai experience done right with this upcoming third season.
