Maruyama, Kugane

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.

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. :-)

Work on something that isn't for edgy teens who play too much runescape.

Overrated light novel

One of my all time favorite light novel series. The people complaining are obviously just angry Ainz isn't a generic good guy MC lol. I see the same people commenting "overrated" in the forums always whining about Ainz being a villain/anti-hero.

They are just salty.
