"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.
The art is good, the sound is good, and that is where the good things end. Everything that was enjoyable and novel about the first season was tarnished in the second season. In this new season, they were driven through the ground and stepped on. The cool new "rule the world" idea that drove the anime is now gone. Now there is just a village full of weak, needy, annoying, and UNNECESSARY characters. From a little potion maker who is on his way to making a potion 1/100 as useful as those made by Ainz to a weak and pointless village chief who is there
for literally no reason other than Ainz gave her a damn flute full of weak goblins. This entire season so far has been pointless. Why are Ainz's extremely OP maids risking their lives just to save these little shits? I don't care about the village, I don't care about the goblins, and I absolutely don't care about this useless diplomacy with a government that Ainz could crumble with a snap of his fingers. I see no point in their complete reroute from "take the world by force" to "lets just protect these humans that we have made it extremely clear that we despise." Isn't the whole point of the show that Ainz has no emotions and is now a skeleton bent on ruling the world? WHERE IS THAT? It's like it went from Game of Thrones OP version to a video of a really long and really boring NATO conference. What I'm trying to say is that they need to bring back the entertaining parts because they are making an entertaining series boring and stupid with all the comedy and the incorporation of useless and weak side characters who bring nothing to the table. Kill off the side characters and let Ainz rule the world, that's all I ask for.
So i like overlord a lot. The character development in these 4 episodes have been great. I feel like that's what lacked in season 2, The first few episodes were about new ''characters'' that were lizard men. We didnt really get any interactins with the supreme being i feel like.
If your looking for an isekai anime i would reccomend overlord most of the time because it's way better then most isekai anime's i have seen.
What i didnt really like about season 3 is that it's kind of getting repetitive. Ainz is trying to bullshit his way out of the questions of the supreme
being's. We see him trying to expand his territory. It's getting kind of boring honestly.
Overlord needs to end with a bang like in the first season.
Why Overlord III get a 6/10 to me?
It's going NOWHERE!
I'm enjoying the show since season 1 but the story never focus on why Momonga is in the game, never show a sign of other players in the game, there is no evolution on the story.
The fact that he don't face any real challenge is extremely annoying, the other annoying fact is about Momonga's personality, the power inhibiting his feelings makes you never know if he is a hero or just a fucking dictator, and again, THERE IS NO EXPLANATIONS!
The anime create too much mysteries with no conclusions, it opens the story to the minor characters
whitout explaining the main event, feels like the author don't know where it's going so far.
But, it have pros, the animation and the sounds are amazing, thanks for the standard quality of Mad House, and that keeps me whatching it.
I'll start by saying that I haven't read the manga or LN-which is said to be way better than the anime.
I'd usually wait for the last episode to come out before writing a rewiev, but I just couldn't wait with this one.
After watching the last 7 episodes i began to wonder why i even started watching these series to begin with. Oh, the MC was funny and promising, the setting, the characters, the world looked interesting. The story was advancing somewhere. Where did all that go?
The way things are now, this anime can have hundreds more new episodes, dozens of seasons and maybe even several
movies but the conclusion would still be nowhere to be seen! The main problem with the new season is that it's too slow-paced and thus extremely boring!
The very first episode of season 3 is nothing but how everyone wants Ainz's D. That's literally it.
Next, Ainz can just launch a full scale attack using all his minions and be done with conquering the world in a month or way less, yet for some reason he and his minions "play from shadows", Ainz plays as "momon the adventurer", Nazarick plays "farmville!"
We are constantly introduced to new names and faces, we are given entire episodes of how they live, what they dream about, who they love, what they want to become and so on. Is the Anime forgetting itself? Why should i care about the sheep that are on their route to slaughterhouse! Their fates are sealed. Sooner or later Ainz, the god of Nazarick and yet to be declared god of the world, will rule unquestionably. Everyone will either submit to his will or get killed/tortured/enslaved by creatures of Nazarick. Why drag this pointless show forever and instead of 200+ boring episodes why not make it 20 excellent ones with an actual plot! Stop introducing more and more new minor characters who will die miserably, usually with a one-shot-kill strike from the least powerful servants of the tomb, it's annoying and a waste of time.
Ainz is pretty much (even though i hate using this comparison) Hitler, or is seen as one by the inhabitants of Nazarick. Even though the person playing as Ainz is portrayed as "not actually evil" he is pretty weak-willed person who has to play the role of the Fuhrer, sometimes doing things against his own will just to not disappoint his Nazi fellows. In other words - he is nonetheless evil for doing evil things, just not "THAT much evil" one would say... It's pretty annoying how despite the loyalty level of his subjects, Ainz is still constantly speaking and acting the way to prove "I am the best/ the greatest/ the smartest". He is already a god for them. At this point he shouldn't care about what his already fanatical servants think and just give orders! ANY orders! why the hell not?!
Literally everyone from Nazarick are Nazis, racists (though in this case race=inhabitants of Nazarick only) who think themselves as "master race". They hate or look down on everyone from the outside world and especially humans (this personally makes me uncomfortable as a human lol). Unlike Nazis though they actually possess the power to back their narcissism and cockiness - but it gets annoying how everyone thinks the same. They are just as fanatical; disregard the value of any life; toy with or experiment on living beings despite the age or sex (and race) of the victim. Many seem to be F-D in the head, sadistic and starving to kill or destroy anything that moves. They'd die for their Furher and his ideology, follow any order even if it's wrong and so on. Is this all that this show can offer?
Nothing special. 3D animation is cheap-looking and disgusting... for a season 3, this is unforgivable and leaves an impression creators goal was to just milk the cow before it dies.
ED and OP are Ok, the rest is forgettable.
Season 1 was by far the best since the story was just developing. Ainz actually had a challenge to face and we were intrigued to know what would happen next!
Season 2 with Lizardmen was already a sign of a disaster. Pointless development of pointless creatures. After reaching season 3 i still wonder who the F cares about those lizards that got owned in 1 minute and got subjected to Nazarick. wtf? how many episodes were devoted to them? 3?4?
Season 3 by far is nothing but the same disaster lasting for already 7 episodes! only a very insignificant development and a load of unnecessary crap, together with cheap jokes and a sprinkle of fan-service.
By far 4/10 is the best i can give.
edit: After watching episode 8 I'd say 2/10 is a better score to give. Once again a new team of unfortunate souls gets unnecessarily, yet brutally (but some might argue mercifully) massacred. Right now it feels like the show is nothing but porn for sadists. I mean, some porn videos have plot in them, but it's not like plot matters right? - you just watch it to jerk off. Same here, no plot, just watch it for the sake of enjoyment found in torture of innocents.
If you fell in love with watching Ainz explore the world as Momonga trying to spread his name, doing quests, interacting with different characters and doing epic shit- basically everything that made Overlord season 1 enjoyable and garnered so much popularity in the first place, well you can kiss that goodbye.
Everything that was enjoyable about the first season goes downhill in the second season. In this season, that’s where it goes to horse shit and is run right through the mud. The problem with Overlord is the story shifts it’s focus from s2 onwards to focus more about the side characters, how Ainz affecting
the world, politics and world building. However, the writer can’t even do that right and fails at every turn.
Assuming you’ve seen the previous seasons already, I’ll keep this brief.
Ainz’s is a ordinary, neet, salary man from Earth that is transported and stuck in this strange world, where only Nazarick and it’s inhabitants are the same as in the game- YGGDRASSIL. The surrounding world, aka. the "New World", is completely different. In other words, Ainz is a self-insert, overpowered Overlord to everyone in Nazarick. Here he’s worshipped and adored by his guardians as they treat him like a god who can do no wrong, and Ainz assumes the role of being a supreme ruler. Ainz’s motivation becomes doing what he believes best benefits Nazarick instead of focusing on I don’t know... trying to find a way back home (because fuck that when your a Overlord amirite?)
As for the plot this season? There’s not much of a plot. It just so happens that all of the events Ainz has committed and the fame he’s spread across the world as Momonga was conveniently all setup for his master plan to rule the world or at least that’s what Demiurge says and Ainz agrees. It’s poor writing, I know.
The first step for Ainz to rule the world is to create his own country and to do that he needs a village to test on for reasons that are unclear. The first 7 episodes focuses on the Carne Village. The rest of the season focuses on these workers who get staged by Ainz to try invade Nazarick so he can kill them for trespassing and use it as an excuse to start a war...? The plan was so awful that I stopped caring.
What do you already know about Ainz and the NPCs? Well, it’s pretty much the same this season. They receive no meaningful character development or exploration this season, since it focuses on the uninteresting side characters that you’ll end up forgetting once you’ve watched this season.
The side stories are trash. Every time the POV shifts from Ainz it’s infuriatingly boring because the side characters we spend several episodes with are uninteresting, bland and one dimensional.
Enri is a cliche, “nice” village girl who everyone loves and becomes the village chief because the plot required her to. Otherwise, no sane person would put a village girl in charge. Nphi is a beta potion boy who’s a pussy and has a crush on Enri. If you thought the lizard men were bad, the goblins are another level of trash. The goblins are one dimensional trash who’s only trait is arguing about who’s going to fuck Enri. At least a few of the lizard men had some depth to them, these goblins don’t even have names ffs.
The workers are all one dimensional forgettable fodder, who’s only role is for Ainz to flex on them for trespassing and to be killed for shock value. Arche’s the only one we learn a bit about with her being broke and wanting to take her sisters away from her parents, but that’s about it. Oh yeah, there’s a bootleg Gilgamesh too
It’s as if Madhouse realised that Overlord goes to shit after s1 and stop putting effort because the animation has declined as well. The visuals are worse this season than s2. The CGI is terrible e.g. the CGI during the Goblin army Vs Estize Kingdom was laughably bad
The opening is one of the few saving graces of this season. S3’s opening is one of my favourites so far. However, the OSTs are pretty much the same as the previous seasons, uninspired and forgettable.
Honestly, I hated this season. The fact that there’s no struggle whatsoever in Overlord and that all the strongest characters are serving under Ainz has made me come to despise this series.
Will there ever be a real threat?
Ainz and his guardians are so ridiculously overpowered that every fight/conflict is always the same repetitive, curb stomp. It was fine at the start, but got old really quickly.
There’s no semblance of stakes, tension or difficulty for anything they do, even Ainz’s plans always go off without a hitch. Idc about how great ‘muh world building’ is, or how Ainz affects the world because knowing that he’ll always come out on top has made the story become too boring and predictable. It’s wish fulfilment, nothing more
Ainz can just launch a full scale attack using all his guardians and be done with conquering the world in a month or two, find out the information about his friends and solve the mystery to go home. Yet we are dragging on to what would seem 100+ episodes, across multiple seasons on giving screentime and developing all these side characters (e.g. lizardmen, goblins) who will always end up being fodder compared to the gods that are fighting (Ainz & the NPCs).
The writer tries to come up with some convenient, shitty reason of ‘Ainz not wanting to rule by power/fear’, but he’s supposed to be a evil protagonist!
So it begs the question: what’s the point?
What I wanted from Overlord was a coherent story with proper direction, a balance of world building, politics, action, interesting well developed characters and good comedy. Not poorly paced, dragged out, pointless story with uninteresting side characters, uneccessary eechi scenes with Albedo & Shaltear, and the guardians sucking off how great Ainz is all the damn time. We get it! “Sasuga Ainz-Sama!” has gotten old and is just annoying at this point.
I can’t fathom why fans praise Overlord so much, giving it such high reviews because “muh world building”, despite it being a mediocre, typical power fantasy isekai with a overpowered, Gary Stu MC who’s the magic user equivalent to Kirito.
This anime thus far i have been anxiously waiting a week with a alarm on my phone to catch it as soon as it airs, which is hard to find an anime that does that for me. This season of overlord has finally showed a lot of action and comedy compared to the others this is the best season so far showing
Some nice action throughout the entire show,
and much needed lore about the world of Yggdrasil
However there are some scenes with CGI But they are relatively short and easy to watch If you liked the first two seasons then Overlord III
is a must watch, it reminds me heavily of One Punch Man but more MMO overall rating 10/10
To put it bluntly: If you liked the previous 2 seasons, you'll enjoy this.
However, you must understand that this anime does have quite a bit of world building and its necessary to further enhance the story so bare with it.
Another thing to note is that this anime isnt you typical Isekai anime. The main story n all seasons are about ainz and his comrades who are NOT hero's. This is an Antihero show at heart. so if your ok with that then you'll be fine, otherwise you will be disgusted and angry at some parts so beware.
art is fantastic, madhouse did a great
job blending typical animation with CG.
sounds is also fantastic, sound effects and voices are great.
characters are diverse and well introduced.
the story is good however with the pacing the show takes and the fact that it is only a 13ep season, it can feel rushed. IMO this should of been 26ep per season show from the beginning as the show Leaves ALOT out from the LN's.
If you are looking for an anime where our enemy is a monster with a power literally absurd this is your series
Being the third season of this great franchise animated by madhouse is still tremendously interesting, it is beautiful, beautiful and perfect
The animation is undoubtedly excellent, it gives the nail with the story and focuses a lot on the theme of the story, with very detailed characters for very few minutes that appear to make their honor, rivals who die in less than 5 minutes but its design perfect you notice the details that give
his band is mainly his op is used in almost
all the epic moments in very ideal moments, apart from his op mola too is beautiful
I as a fan of the novels is very close to it, there are very few details that are not there, the story is if it is quite solid, it is difficult to see loose ends
an excellent series said of a word, since I saw this series its first season last year I really liked being an isekai a fairly mediocre genre this serious polishes it and makes you think that the genre still has enough potential, I would recommend it to you if you are looking for an anime with a prota that is the enemy with pleasure I recommend you see it
Well i always star with a warning
First I don't speak English so that i can that have some errors so that do not send me correcting messages as if they were my English teachers that I have enough with that to correct me and make you go through the bilingual
Well WE STAR!!
Well I want belive about Overlord i did think wow this anime is great (In his first season)in his second season i felt bored because ,i do not entertained did not meet my expectations and this season is very boring for me (Personal opinion) i don't deny that it has
better history based on video games to SAO but no one is good and slashes the 6 Which is the slightest note I can give it.
Well her Opening is bad and also her Ending , her characters are pathetics well a little summary of each one of them good those I remember
Albedo : A crazy woman that wants lay to her momongo-Sama or better said a office employee very Virgin
Momongo: Well i don't say of hime , it's Is the best I like the whole anime
Shalltear: Another Albedo but more little , a Loli crazy that same as Albedo wants lay to Momongo-Sama
I don't understand so many good reviews, good is the opinion of people and I respect
As I said before I have errors in this review and all in the fact so do not send me message by private giving me private English classes
You know when people say, "The book is better than the movie"? Well, in this case its the same thing, except its a show. The 24 minute episode force Madhouse to have to cut out a lot of stuff making this inconsistent story. People sometimes say to read the light novel but that is just silly. Why should you need to read a whole book to just understand a show. If all parts of the story were to be in the show it would go well beyond the 24 minute mark so they have to cut some content but that sometimes just breaks the
immersion. Not only that but the world building episodes are often long and boring. World building is necessary yes, but in this case the anime spent way too long on it and focused solely on it. It became more of a side story than anything making it feel like a filler episode.
(For anime only watchers I recommend reading Djinn's Posts in the Reddit Discussion of Overlord III episodes Just Google Overlord 3 episode # discussion and scroll down till you find his post)
For the most part, the art is great, everything looked nice and was quite beautiful, however, the CG was to say the least, unrealistic. Especially in episode 11, (Which at the time of this review, is the latest episode) the anime did a nice job of portraying the numbers of the army, but each of the models looked so bland and unrealistic, the movement was fine, but it just did not fit with the art style. Pulling me out of the immersion
The OP and ED are phenomenal and I do like the soundtrack quite a bit. I never felt like the sound was distracting, but enhancing the overall the experience. Although I can not recall a specific time, I got chills whenever a character is overwhelmed at a sight of a huge army or absolute power.
If anything, the world building also helped shape the character building. We get a good sense of what the characters personalities are just from their design but when the show goes more in depth we see it more or see a hidden side (Such as lupus's sadistic nature).
I did enjoy the show quite a bit, from Ainz's show of power, the ironic humor, and the not so humorous death of the workers. 24 minutes of content felt like only 5 and I was always eager to watch the newest episode. If anything the part I did not enjoy was a the slow pace of the world building but that is about it.
The combination of Characterization, Art, and sound help elevate the story and the only things holding it back is the CG and its own time constraint.
Ok so yeah you can go ahead and skip the first few episodes because boy oh boy things get hot around episode 6 onwards like the Brutality and sense of savageness that you get from these episodes I honestly felt sorry for the workers but oh well it's a story, they tonnes it down a bit compared to how detailed it was in the novels so I've heard but hey it still not bad they do things to make you think and use your imagination of how they suffered a bad fate and etc...the art is A1 brilliant as always it's MAD HOUSE they are
god's of animation along with wit studio and etc, the sounds and the vocals was on point to me hey I only complain when there is something to complain about Overlord is simply amazing just watch it and you'll soon see the greatness which is Overlord, also best girl is Albedo enough said bye😂
My small mid-season review. The season is hearting up, Ainz is planning ahead and trying has best to portray himself as supreme leader. The season so far has been very enjoyable and as someone who has not read the manga it's been easier to follow than season 2.
As always the case with overlord, each episode is well paced making them feel like that are only 5 minutes long rather than 20 (yes i'm enjoying them that much). The art style is the same as always, with 3D animated 'stuff' thrown in, which I really wish they didn't do. But the character development, story and
sound track all make up for that.
One reason why I've always like overlord is that is very unique in the isekai genre, it doesn't feel like ideas are recycled and the goal of the main character is mediocre (Find a way to get home). This has stayed truth throughout the seasons and this one is no exception.
Overall I looking forward to the rest of the season and wishing that it was 24 episodes rather than 13.
first and foremost, I apologize for some grammar error. I hope you still get what I wanted to say,
Overlord continues to surprise me. When I first watched it, I had a really low expectation in this next Isekai. No, this show is definitely not a masterpiece. But it did really well to grab my attention in the first season. Now, in the first and second season, this show is kinda mediocre to me. But it was a hell of fun for me to have watched it. Because if you look for it, this show has little going for it: Animation-wise this show is good but
not outstanding, It's not full of action, the overpowered main character, yadda yadda yadda. If I had to choose for animation between overlord and SAO I'd definitely have chosen SAO. BUT WAIT, this anime is one of the example why anime still needs to adapt light novel:
The story. The one that surprises me in overlord is that they have that balance between you pity the side character and the point of Ainz Ooal Gown's character. Now what do I mean by that? For example, if they kill certain character that has good deeds and make the character gone forever from the story, a lot of people will get upset, because so much is wasted from the character development. BUT, if you don't kill the character that has encountered Ainz Ooal Gown just because they have good deeds, that would kill the point of Ainz Ooal Gown's character, because if they do that, that would be the next Kirito Art Online, the next "Good Guy", I wouldn't want to watch that kind of show, especially if the animation is definitely inferior to the Sword Art Online. So they master that balance of character and story and have keep that until now the third season. That is impressive. Yes there is a lot of trash light novel out there that get adapted to anime, but this show is not one of that.
To be honest, i am quite a bit disapointed with the anime, I know there is a budget problem, but even so to use that cringy CGI in the episode 11 is just a hideous crime to me as a fan, i don't think they should have made it traditional for i know it is reaaaaly hard, but still what they made is just too lazy. Also i understand how much the industry is nearly like a slave labour at times which makes the japanese animation market so hard to florish again, so take my complaints with a bit of salt and as not taking
much into account the hardships of the workplace, this is a criticism or rant solely as a fan.
So, here is some of my insight on the score i gave:
Story 7(anime) 10(LN):
UNfortunate as it is, compacting 3 volumes in 13 episodes is bound to hurt the overall story, it is boudn to feel rushed and give space for more important information, i get that specially in a novel that gives so much focus to it's internal diallogues and small detais. But to give the first 5 episodes to volume 8 and only 3 for volume 7 is just a dumb mistake, it shows that they tried to play funny and make it more heartwarming even thought the focus of this novel is not that.
It seems as if the studio believes we would prefer this way, even though volume 7 is one of the best in the whole series for it shows how cruel Ainz can be and the sad conseuquences of his choices, it was so good because it was tragic.
This is pretty obvious why i gave a 6, the CGI is getting out of control, it's "horribleness" peaks in episode 11, which could have been done much better.
I don't mind using CGI for battles as it is indeed hard to make so many soldiers in a war, but look at Maria The Virgin,as far as i remember they didn't used it or used very little yet the battles were well made for they gave focus to few soldiers when giving us so pretty combat, you can use CGI when showing large formations moving rather than that awful rag doll bashing, jesus make a close up when they clash so to make the fight look better, we would see some good individual fights and be satisfied.
Sound 9: The sounds in the anime are awesome, the opening song is as iconic as the season 1, it fits the madness of the story and it's characters, most of it's sound effects are well timed and made altought it does suffer a bit for me sometimes, either because it changes too fast or the sound effects play when silence would have been better, to give a more misterious effect, but this is a minor detail.
Character 8(anime) 10(LN): Of course, the characters fortunatelly continue the same crazy people from Nazaric we all know, and Ainz misunderstanding... Just priceless.
But the anime does suffer a lot form the lack of detail in it's minor character and even some of it's main ones.
Arche for example came out in the anime as just a bit likeble, (she barelly was the focus) they cut off the debt collector scenes, the detais of her inner thoughs her interactions with her group, the detais of their unity, and even the reason some of their reason for being who they were, which were pretty relateble. Instead they gave more wacth time for the villagers... sigh... Even though Arche is the best selling point of the whole Arc.
Enjoyment: 7(anime) : The fact they i kept seeing the small detais that were cut or the cringy CGI kept me from enjoying the anime fully, i could not enjoy it as i should because of these great let downs and the fact that i knew full well how important these details were, (i've read the 12 volumes about 6 times i am not kidding) .
The bad decision to give the 8th volume, the most boring of the 3 adapted, a great focus on the start just made me really angry and sad, Mad House made a injustice to Overlord here.
Overall 7: The anime wasn't bad per say, but it is far from 8.40. i was actually even thinking of giving it a 6 because of how sad i became after seing one of my favorite novels being butchered like this, but in the end i have to admit it wasn't that bad, but it could have been a master piece.
this Season Covers 2 of the best volumes yet they choose to elevate the most boring volume in the entire LN, this to me shows 2 things:
1-the studio does not know one bit of what it's audience wants, 2- they were too afraid to place a bet in the 7th volume because of it's "controvesy", so they decided to give it less focus the minimize our attachment to the arc.
So in the end they killed what could have been a masterpiece of a season.
This isn't a professional review or anything just a review from your average anime watcher. I've watched all the episodes of Overlord thus far and I have to say I have no clue as to why they've ruined the series in the last 2 seasons. First season was an absolute blast and a really good overall anime however 2nd season and 3rd season have just been side stories about some meaningless characters for about 80-90% of the season with no action. I don't know if I'm missing the point and when I went to check the rating of this season I was expecting to see
an overall 6/10 just because well the first season was good (otherwise I'd be expecting a 4 or 5) but shockingly was greeted with an 8.36/10. If you want my honest opinion, stop at season 1.
This anime keeps finding a way to let me down.
Maybe it was because i liked the first season so much that my expectations were really high.
I thought that the third season would rectify this problem but ,no.
There is absolutely no action scenes and some broad attempts at light hearted fun.
Its like the first season was an unexpected hit and the creators just want to squeeze the anime dry.
Every episode feels like a filler ,like those OVA's.
There are a few action scenes but it isn't worth it as the anime lasts only 13 episodes per season.
If they wanted
to focus on the plot and the sub-plot and the sub-plot's sub-plot then they should've thought of making a longer anime.
13 episodes are too less for all the unnecessary fillers.
