Finally a good episode. Those episodes when Ains went as a knight in that town were all so mediocre, but this episode finally brings the goodness that made the first few episodes of this series good. Shalltear is freakin' badass too.

Good thing the red-haired girl survived.. I hope. :)


I would like to see more of her but i don't think that will happen , they will just ignore her or pretend she never existed.
Even if they didn't show her death i don't see her appearing again, just a feeling i have.
Any LN reader can tell me if she will appear again ?

Better than last episode, although it felt almost like filler. (I don't think it is though?) In any case it certainly felt really rushed.


The blue haired guy seemed interesting somewhat, but then we just see this vampire chick wipe the floor with him - because good fights ain't to be found in this anime. Also that fan-service with the blonde chick....

Shalltear or whatever you call her is annoying, at least she sort of establishes some sort of grey morality of Nazerick despite her being essentially the only one who cannot be considered 'angelicly good' although nobody else seems like anything other than super good people (except racism against humans) out of Nazarick. Well thats good, the closer to the grey area of morality the protagonist's side is the better (too much evil is also bad). I can only hope there will be enemies that are something else rather than 'satan incarnates' from last episode.

Albedo is as annoying as always, she seems to be a contender for #1 most one dimensional character of this anime. Her entire character is just her flipping from semi-serious to fangirling over Ainz. The fangirling thing is just soo annoying and totally ruins the serious mood of the episode. I feel like anime (in general) are too scared to show an entire 'serious' episode and feel the need to include some comedy/light-heartedness to garner to virtually every demographic they can.

Although main thing that pissed me off about Albedo is how everyone seems to compare her to 'Yuno Gasai' which is entirely baseless and makes no sense; Yuno Gasai was a *somewhat* well written (or at least well executed) for most part of her anime. She had personality and even some development & an aura of mystery for half of the anime. She was a lot more complex than Albedo, and was an actually true 'yandere', whilst Albedo is more of a caricature than a character and lacks everything that makes Yuno Gasai great leaving only the 'annoying' part, Albedo isn't a proper yandere.




Well either way I could go on and on about the faults of this episode and the anime as a whole, but since my last post on the last episode's thread wasn't particularly well received by fanboys I toned this one down severely. Also this episode being better than last one lends me a glimmer of hope that this anime may not actually end up being entirely bad.

I really liked this episode and all this negativity reminded me to NOT read a light novel before watching an anime, it would lessen my enjoyment of this fine adaptation.

I was wondering who's the girl Ains is fighting in the opening, so its Shalltear. One of the mercenaries called Shalltear a lamprey lol couldnt agree more. Well last three episodes.

The scene where Shalltear raided the camp could be longer, with twisting of heads etc..
Her true form was somewhat how I imagined her to be from the LN so all is good.

Because you can't differentiate between what's good and bad.

Oh God another one of those.... ''dont like it don't watch it'' that isn't really a good argument. I need to watch it in its entirety to be able to properly evaluate it. If people that disliked tv shows/anime stopped watching them after the 1st episode then WHO would review them? Only the fanboys and people that loved the show enough to continue watching after the first 1-3 episodes. You would only see ratings in the 7-10 range, not a good representation of public view of the anime to say the least.


This anime is pretty popular, many of my friends watch it and many people on the internet do as well. To be able to discuss it and actually critique this anime I actually have to watch it first. Also this season really sucked so far, not many good shows. Also ignoring all the flaws the anime is still 'enjoyable' somewhat - but you don't praise a show just because you enjoyed it.


Also come on, I even praised the show a little in my post and yet you go fanboying over telling me to stop watching and ignoring my praise however little it was just to focus on my critique. Everything needs criticism - no matter how good it is. Even my favourite anime of all time - Legend of the Galactic Heroes needs criticism to enable the possible viewer to get a clear picture beyond all the mindless fanboism.

Nothing wrong with liking LotGH, but writing big texts and having LotGH as your avatar is just a funny combination is all. I don't need to say why right? I mean hardcore LotGH fans have already gotten themselves a "hefty" reputation.

I assume you consider it the 'mark of an elitist' or the like? Well that's.... perhaps true. LotGH being a really 'intelligent' classic anime is food for elitists to pray & fanboy over.

Well I certainly am a 'hardcore' LotGH fan, I consider it the best anime of all time and the Jesus of anime, I'm still awaiting the second coming(hyperbole but yeah). Well it HAD flaws despite it being 'the best' that's true, and its all my opinion anyway. If I analysed it hard enough I could write essays about it being the worst anime ever. But you could do that to any anime.

Well to be honest I haven't really seen many 'hardcore' LotGH fans on MAL.

Well at least my avatar isn't fully serious.... notice the barely visible hammer and sickle on Reinhard's uniform.. lolz.

Episode felt a bit rushed, but overall i enjoyed it a great deal. Conversation between Sebas and Shaltear could have been longer but other than that i enjoyed it and knew what was going on. Maybe it's because i couldn't give any less of a shit about Brain that i didn't think the fight was bad as all (i enjoyed him being completely fucked with).

Still my top anime of the season.

Do you people seriously believe that? If they stick to this pace they can get the whole Pandora Actor scene to 5 minutes and dedicate the rest of the episode to the fight.

Darklight0303 said:


What the hell are you talking about? This wasn't almost the whole volume it was two chapters

Yeaah... there's what, Interlude (most likely going to be skipped) and 2 more chapters.


Because if they seriously finish vol.3 next episode then whoever directed this show should be fired on the spot because that would be an utterly retarded decision for spending 5 episodes on the shortest (vol 2.) and a mere 2 episodes on the longest (vol.3).

Besides there's actually an interlude and 3 more chapters left to go.

As much as I didn't like the pacing in this episode "hopefully" the pacing will be fine for the remaining 3 spending 1 episode per chapter would be fine.

It didn't feel rushed. It was ok.

Probably Overlord is going to end with a teaser of Vol 4 since we get some hints in the OP.

Well that was an episode, probably don't need to mention it felt rushed.
Wish the fight with brains was better Shaltears design felt off but i suppose that's opinion.

I mean according to the comments i'm just going to hope this sets the pace for a better final 3 episodes, fingers crossed.

Shalltear's monster form is so nasty haha...I prefer her human like form better.
Brain just run off like a chicken, well if it was me I would do the same.
It's seem kind of rush, no?
So the person that use mind control on Shalltear got kill, but she was still being control?
Hm...those people that face off with Shalltear are not normal, maybe they are player just like Momonga?

Daamn shalltear.. please keep your prettier face on D:
I wasn't prepared for such monstrosity. Seeing the reason for why she turned side was interesting, now they just need to find her and figure out some way to remove it. It must be a pretty serious enemy though if it's strong enough to mind control one of Ains subordinates.

Because being involved doesn't mean he had a complete say in everything that happened. I can name a number of anime where the original creator was involved and it still turned out to have shitty parts in the anime. Key parts are there. It's the minor shit people are complaining about and i won't fault them for it...because i did it to Fate/Stay Night UBW

Damn, I thought this was one of the better episodes 'cause the pacing felt a little better, but looking at some of these comments, they apparently rushed through a lot, so now I'm thinking I would have preferred it to have its usual pacing as slow as it is some times. Quality > Quantity

Nah, players wouldn't get one shotted like trash :)
and shalltear wasn't supposed to take out her weapon :( only fire off that attack at the end.
that's why all of them retreated cause they thought she was just a monster with no good equipment, and could leave her be.

Just watched it and also can confirm it has rushed.. but one of the first episodes where someone of the stronger members got in trouble!
Considering Shalltear.. still like her most out of the subordinates
Even if i would wish her other Form to be non existent i can accept it due it makes sence because that's what she actually is inside..
Solution was interesting aswell.. hope for some more Maids in the last few Episodes
Would like to see Entoma.. but her real Form is even worse than Shalltear afaik
and let clementine make a comeback in this season!

Therefore I will not. I remember this kind of comments when the Harry Potter movies came out, why would I invest myself in reading a book only to sour an otherwise pleasant experience? Madness I say.

I see that most of the negativity came from the people who doesn't actually read the LN. Furthermore, reading the LN makes it better, at least for me.

I didn't read the manga, so I can't really say if they rushed anything. But it didn't seem that way to me. I'm guessing they'll explain what happened next episode.
But compared to the other episodes I think this one was just as good.
A curve including all entries should be of a gaussian form. One including limited entries by picking animes you liked and not rating animes you dropped should look like mine.
Amount of total animes each rating should have (percentages): 6-25,7-15,8-6,9-3,10-1

Terrible pacing.With the exception of ep9, this adaptation has been so half-assed. For example, who would have realize that everything that happened in this episode occurred at the same time as Ainz and Narb's adventuring/confrontation with Clementine and Khajiit? The least they could've done was put something like "ONE DAY PRIOR" at the start of the episode.

It's like the anime committee team are following a list of scenes that they have to animate and dialogue they have to include but remove all the nuances and characterization. The scenes they do include lack any sort of tension or atmosphere, especially obvious in this episode. And Ainz barely feels like a character when 90% of his monologues on his thoughts and motivations are removed.

The best comparison I can give is the adaptation of the first two Harry Potter movies. Not terrible but just mediocre that accurately follows the book but lacks any of the "magic" that made the books enjoyable to read.

I have to admit this episode was kinda boring. These events just came out of nowhere and don't seem to make much sense. Given the overall quality of episodes 3-9, this was unexpected.

We'll probably some fun stuff again before this series is over, so I'm not too worried about it. It'd be great to have another season though, since there's clearly more than enough content for that.

Awesome ep! Felt a bit rushed.. Wanted to hear them talk about the 8th floor of Nazarack Don't like how Madhouse changed Shalltear's transformation design.. seriously what the heck. I mean it wasn't bad at all, but they shouldn't have changed it imo. And Lol at Albedo and Ainz.. ahh, I love Albedo's character so much.
