Muchimuchi Puririn was his handle name when he first posted Overlord on the website. Subsequently, he changed his pseudonym to Kugane Maruyama when Overlord got published; he didn't want readers to cast strange eyes when purchasing Overlord since Muchimuchi Puririn means "blubbery fatty."

His short story Dawn has been adapted in Kagetsu Tohya which is Type-Moon's sequel to their earlier doujin visual novel game, Tsukihime, released in August 2001.

Even Nasu Kinoko, the writer of Fate/stay night, praised his work but Maruyama gave up the dream of becoming a writer because he felt the difference in talent between Nasu and himself.

He is a big fan of the Dungeon and Dragons game. One of the reason he started writing again was all of his DnD buddies were too busy to play with him.

People here still cannot accept criticism about Overlord and that it is actually poorly written? Hardly surprising.

Best isekai ever, I love the LN so much, please pay no heed to the people spewing edge lords here, they are jealous of its popularity. Maruyama is a man of culture.

The guys who are complaining are really illiterate in more ways than one. Come on guys, you calling this novel and fans edge lords but do you even read tags and genres? it has tag that says anti hero! what do you expect an anti hero novel should do? it is also a dark fantasy genre. So why keep calling it edge lord when its clearly its meant for gore/violence/mature. It is not morally accepted if the setting is in earth but the novel is at a game like world with swords and magic with medieval age style timeline.

So if you don't like dark fantasy, anti-hero, violence kind of novel then why read it then? no new or good fluffly go lucky novel to read? Then I will recommend Desum*chi go read it then, instead of being a plague of the society who doesn't even know right and left.

Hello! You are now reading the "comment section" please ignore the salty people calling Maruyama and the light novel fans "Edgelords".

The salty people are inferior beings that are hungry for attention and won't hesitate to hunt you down with their group of 12 year old followers that play Fortnite all day and say anything that is not what they are used to inside their little bubble is "edgy".

Thank you and have a nice day. :-)
