Volume 1


The story begins with Yggdrasil, a popular online game which is quietly shut down one day. However, the protagonist Momonga decides to not log out. Momonga is then transformed into the image of a skeleton as "the most powerful wizard." The world continues to change, with non-player characters (NPCs) beginning to feel emotion. Having no parents, friends, or place in society, this ordinary young man Momonga then strives to take over the new world the game has become.

Where to start with this little beauty of a gem without revealing any spoilers.

So our hero gets trapped in an mmorpg as his player character, yet his player character is some skeleton lich character and he belonged to a guild of people who are no longer in the world he get's trapped in, yet he has access to the servants and artifcats they've gathered and crafted.

overlords art seems a bit childish for such a dark story but that isn't what really bothers me, by no means is overlord a bad manga in fact its very good but it just doesn't compare to the anime or light novels. I cant quite say what it is but this read more

I didn't watch the anime, or read the original novel, so I have nothing to compare this to, so bare with me on how HARSHLY I'm going to critique this manga.

Story: So the story is literally the entire synopsis of the series. A guy is "stuck" in a video game. That's literally it. I dropped this series after 11 chapters because it's literally a boring story. It goes no where. It's a bit slow. There are a lot of characters and it can get confusing.

Art: The art is alright, there's definitely some pages where I just don't know what I'm looking at. But it's read more
