No Overlord thread? Chapter 1 part 2+3 is out:
You should post all the links.
Right now it's being done CH->ENG.
We have no nip translators.
This is some ass backwards way of doing things. You mean the guy translating only knows chinese and only has chinese copies of this LN? I mean, I appreciate the work, but we're going to hit a dead end eventually. We might want to find some people.
You're new to this whole LN translation thing scene, right? Be happy we have what we have. Finding translators for shit that isn't high-school rom-com number one billion is hard as shit.
A substantial portion of Mushoku Tensei was done this way. We had translators for the rest since the series was so popular.
It's also harder since clearly the LN version is clearly better than the WN version (added Albedo and whatnot), so that makes it harder as well.
I take it this doesn't help?
I have a hard time seeing insect queen doing it.
Awesome. Is the age of high-fantasy animes back? FIrst bahamut, then this.
I just hope it gets a really good budget because it really needs it.
Have there been any details, like what studio is doing it?
Disgruntled salary-man gets transported from MMO to fantasy world with everything his guild members created. The NPCs they created gain sentience and worship him, and overlord lich king shenanigans ensue.
The guy literally made Sebastian in his image.
Pic related is probably my favorite design.
They're all pretty great.
Whoever made cocytus though must've had quite a creative mind.
Meet Victim, a result of sticking every "more power but with a backdraw" buff on a NPC.
You know, what really gets me is how his servants don't see anything wrong with how their master is acting.
First volume has him acting buddy-buddy with some of them - shouldn't that strike some red flags?
Im just afraid that the anime will be like the drama cd shit. A beta talking in his mind while interacting with his NPC servants. I dont want to hear beta thoughts and whimpy dialogue. I want an alpha lich.
Please translate the novels. I have little hope for the show.
It wont work in an actuall show. Its just going to ruin the athmosphere.
In the ln you dont hear the beta voice and it doesnt bother you. But when you see a master lich siting on a throne and speaking to himself in a fkin betamax salaryman voice...not gonna work.
Well its gonna work for the people who like shitty whimps and their problems.
>Im just afraid that the anime will be like the drama cd shit. A beta talking in his mind while interacting with his NPC servants. I dont want to hear beta thoughts and whimpy dialogue. I want an alpha lich.
Hopefully they don't turn all the descriptions in the light novel into inner dialogue.
I don't get why /a/ likes Overlord for that. Any time I link a LN with an alpha MC, people complain because they can only self insert as beta wimps. What makes Overlord so different?

>Overlord of an evil empire
What more could you ask for?
These people are retarded.
Also: overlord focuses on the mc as a lich, not as a beta salary man. An over powered lich with a bunch of loyal servants to take over the world.
The salaryman part was over after vol1 ch1.
He has some weakpoints but thats because hes a human. Not a beta salaryman. That role is dead.
Back to the point. Did u listen to the drama cd? Now imagine an entire show with this lich him having a monologue in that retarded ass otaku voice like every 2min in each episode.
I HOPE its not gonna be that bad but what can i say. Japan loves its virgins ans their problems. And the sales because of it.
