In other words, season 2 was planned to be a split-cour from the beginning, else season 3 wouldn't be able to air so early.

But I have to wonder: Will we get the extra vol. 8 or will it be skipped? Because depending on that we may or may not get vol. 10 adapted.


Anyway, HYPE! We will get vol. 9 adapted no matter the case!

I already knew that when I was posting it.
Still, this definitely reconfirmed that they do indeed can count to three after all.

This isn't some kind of sick joke right, this is AMAZING thank god, tbh I was hoping it would get a third season in I don't know a few years or so (2 or 3 years) but ok I'm totally fine with this.



All the Anime's on my list are all one's I own Personal physical copies of, or have seen in theaters that I plan on buying, series that I've watched on FUNimation or HIDIVE will not be on here unless/until I have already bought it.

I think the more mind-blowing detail is that it's announced for Summer 2018 and not like a year later.

That's in vol. 11 - the anime won't reach it, unless the anime producers skipped vol. 8 and only use 3 episodes per volume this time. That would be too rushed.

It's not a Shoujo.
And there is no info about Madhouse picking up the show again.

Well shit that was fast lol. Those two new characters at the end of today's episode intrigued me so I'm glad we'll see more of them fairly soon.
I'm no special story or anything. I'm just a manga that wants to be read, like you could find anywhere. But, if, for argument's sake, you were to adapt me into an anime series, it would certainly be....a tragedy.

This was obvious from the 1st episode as they introduced characters wayyy ahead in the books, I've been saying all season if season 3 doesn't show up then that'd be one of the biggest cock-tease opening episodes ever! even for anime standards. LN readers know exactly what I mean

This is Just Amazing! Right after watching the finale of Season 2, I get this! Thank you for making my day Kadokawa and Madhouse!

In all seriousness though, I hope Season 3 will be better than Season 2. I feel as though Season 2 was poor in comparison to Season 1. Well, here’s hoping for the best!

madhouse, you have so many other unfinished anime that you could make a sequel of, but what do you make it of? an anime literally no one cares about

They had to know S3 is coming so why rush it so badly... S2 was really disappointing.

I need more Albedo for my life to have meaning.
"Manga readers are annoying, all they do is complain or spoil the anime we want to discuss in an anime forum. They should really take their whining and do it at manga forums. Moderators should really enforce their rules. Anime only viewers should be able to enjoy and discuss their anime without the unwanted garbage manga readers bring to the discussion.

Dragon Ball Super is put on hiatus, and this gets a third season? Where's the sense?


But seriously, congratulations to the show for getting a third season. Not many shows nowadays can do that. I expect no less than greatness from Ainz Ooal Gown in the upcoming season.

Thanks i hope it will be good because this season i like the lizard man arc. But my interest started to deteriorate with so little screen time for our main character. My major criticism of the series is lack of screentiem for our main cast.

For the love of Ainz-sama please give it good staff.
Season 1 and 2 have had to settle with the 4th rate leftovers until now.
