Momonga is an average salaryman who spends his free time playing Yggdrasil, a DMMO-RPG (Dive Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game) well-known across Japan for its immense world and limitless customization. Unfortunately, all good things come to an end, and Yggdrasil's servers shut down in the year 2138. Wanting to witness the game’s final hours, Momonga, the leader of the guild Ainz Ooal Gown, logs in for the last time and heads toward the guild’s headquarters.

After reminiscing about his comrades and adventures, Momonga prepares for the server to automatically log him out as the clock strikes midnight. However, he is not forcefully booted out of the game. Instead, he finds himself in a new world—now trapped in the body of his avatar and where non-player characters are aware of their feelings.

Left with no other options, Momonga takes on the name of his guild in hopes that other players would recognize Ainz Ooal Gown. Determined to make sense of the bizarre situation, Momonga embarks on a journey to unravel the mysteries hidden in this uncharted world.

So, if one came to the manga after anime series, which has multiple seasons of it, one would discover subtle differences. But the main complaint would be is that the manga is too slow, with anime lapped the manga as of the end of the fourth season.

This manga ended around just the start of the season four of the anime. The final chapter had a hopeful tone, with a positive view of the future, with Momonga doubling down on the establishing and strengthening his rule of the Sorcerer Kingdom of Nazarick.

This is a good adaptation, ...

Preliminary (Unknown/? eps)
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.

The main character is entertaingly over powered compared to mostly everyone he meets, and shows a interesting level of cunning and deception that the goddess Lloth herself would be pleased with as he tries to find out more about his ...
