The manga adaptation of Overlord adapts the light novel directly.

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, given the art, since the likeness is spot on and connects the light novel and anime visual approach on the characters.

However, pacing was a torture, especially when it was serializing since it was at minimum a monthly update.

I recommend reading the entire manga, instead of re-watching the first three seasons, and then re-watch the fourth season, when preparing for the Overlord cinematic movie in 2024. Now that we are almost halfway the year (2024), the release is imminent, unless an unexpected delay derails it.
