Following the horrific assault on the Re-Estize capital city, the Guardians of the Great Tomb of Nazarick return home to their master Ainz Ooal Gown. After months of laying the groundwork, they are finally ready to set their plans of world domination into action.

As Ainz's war machine gathers strength, the rest of the world keeps moving. The remote Carne Village, which Ainz once saved from certain doom, continues to prosper despite the many threats on its doorstep. And in the northeastern Baharuth Empire, a certain Bloody Emperor sets his sights on the rising power of Nazarick.

Blood is shed, heroes fall, and nations rise. Can anyone, or anything, challenge the supreme power of Ainz Ooal Gown?

This is not a full review, but rather explanation why I feel Overlord stands above the standard.

Something are good because they are good, and somethings are good because they are something that others are not. For me, Overlord is good not because I feel it objectively shines above all other in terms of story and characters (though I feel they are certainly above average), but because it scratches a very specific craving I've developed over the years with excessive anime consumption.

To put it short, I've had my fill of holy savior protagonists, the messiahs, the good boys, the infallible morally just protagonists. I am also ...

Mixed Feelings
Season 3 is the first 'mixed bag' of Overlord, which started to have cracks and becoming mundane, without the thrill we'd been used to.

The first aspect where the problems started to show themselves is the World Building. The presentation and implementation of the Bamaruth Empire was pretty much flawless as worthy of Overlord, but other aspects and certainly power levels began to radiate minor inconsistencies.

The problem transmitted to the Plot as well, but it wasn't its most garish aspect. Most of the 13 episodes were centered around Characters who we do not really care about, or who were either stationary or not in danger. While ...

Oh my god season 3 is boring!
13 episodes of nothing happening.

Overlord III has the same issue as Overlord II but times 10.

It focuses waayyyyy too much on things that are not at all interesting.
Focusing on a girl and her goblins for 3 episodes is not interesting. Neither is some kid’s love story. This is not a slice of life. Its supposed to be action fantasy. I don’t want to watch a village girl run errands for 3 episodes.

When the focus is actually on the main character and his team its genuinely great and interesting to watch.

But then there are these long scenes ...
