Overlord Anime and Manga discussion
Workers literally did nothing wrong.
They were literally sacrificed for Demiurge plan, but yes... enter in some Dungeons without first doing research about is a stupid mistake. Well.okay, it's also true that no strategy would work when the levels disparities are so absurdly high.
Ainz and his servants, are the equivalent of Lovecraftian gods ( for power) against simple human beings.
I have an assumption.
What if Nazarick is a wandering dungeon that is traveling world to world, consuming part of each previous world as a floor?
>doesn't that qualify as having used magic during his fight against the Martial Lord?
Not really, him casting spells would count but just having the spell in the weapon doesn't. I guess you could compare it to having a enchantment on your weapon or gear, it's magic but it doesn't really count.
Newfag mod trying to make new rules over the ones laid down in a decade and last "okay'd" by another mod in 2012.
If they really want to make new "rules" or divisions it ought to be a sticky and from Hiro so it won't be a vague one new guy trying to enforce their own ideas.
Well, I just tried to understand, what happened with Yggdrasil. Then I read a BD bonus about Nazarick conquer. And this dungeon is seemed to me too much suspicious.
If we discard the option with hacking of a Satoru Suzuki brain just 3 options will remain. Wandering Nazarick, summoning from a NW and Yggdrasil 2.0
>Then I read a BD bonus about Nazarick conquer. And this dungeon is seemed to me too much suspicious.
How was it suspicious? It was a bullshit dungeon, like most shit in Yggdrasil.
That's pretty much the same has hacking his brain.
>hacking of a Satoru Suzuki brain
This isn't SAO
It was made by the devs in Ygg so doubtful.
It's best if it is just never given a reason. Just think of it as something that just is.
>It's better that it'll remain a mystery since most "answers" like you pointed out would fall flat on their face.
This, I really don't think he could come up with a good answer to the reason why players are transported.
>This isn't SAO
But in the bonus there are lines about nanomachines, direct connection to the brain, etc.
>It was made by the devs in Ygg so doubtful.
What if only the first floor was made by the devs?
Also part about Five Rulers was a bit strange.
The only way it could work and be part of the story is that it's either another dimension like quantum matching in Caine or something that enables "worlds" to overlap at certain points in time.
The worst options would either way be Ygg2.0 or trying to bring Satoru "back" and make New World void. Anything but those please.
I see plenty of S# speculation going on right now, same with the manga. Go be a dunce somewhere else, like the buyfag and djt threads.
>But in the bonus there are lines about nanomachines, direct connection to the brain, etc.
>What if only the first floor was made by the devs?
There was more than one floor.
>Also part about Five Rulers was a bit strange.
The dungeon bosses? Seems pretty normal.
It's a western fantasy/sci-fi series with basic premise of being about dystopian cyberpunk world where a corporations rule and iron-clad caste system holds people in place.
Basic idea was to send "entertainers" into an parallel quantum world (Tolkien-like fantasy world albeit brutal) and the entertainers go there via quantum matching their bodies there.
And try to entertain their "viewers" with acting by any means necessary. Shit happens and quantum shit works both ways and if you go "off-sync", shit happens too.
The problem with the nanomachines part/backstory is that it's not a relevant machine for the story to rely on anymore.
And even if it was brought back, like if it was an experiment Ainz tells Demi to do on if they can create a simulation inside NW, it would need much more than the 18 novels and measly 1 season of anime to do.
Given how in the anime and further Ainz wants to confirm the shit about gods and how the world operates it's not that impossible to see him scoping out new means of power but eh, the origin story and "simulation" still feel too distant to fit in.
They sync there so the body will be missing in the original world and they have to be synced back and if they don't do it by the book you can consider it as the classic "I ran out of mana while walking through this wall / I botched the teleportation" in fantasy/dnd.
Which reminds me on how chuuni the silly Black Scripture costumes and the "reasoning" to use them will be.
All that speculation during the first episodes of anime on who the shit they were and only at the end and by the databook we get to see the full weight of the circus crew.
>how chuuni the silly Black Scripture costumes
They look like completely usual jRPG gear.
It's not chuuni, it's just archetypal.
Yeah I meant more "chuuni" from the way they reason they need to look like such amusing crew of circus rejects.
6GG for what we know only came to the world with what they carried on person and no bank so unless each seat is wearing some leftover mid/high/top-class gear.
Which I doubt since Clementine w as 9th seat and had none, each and every part of the circus crew made their own gear in fashion to honor the shit 6GG brought with them.
It's like classic Bukuku/Crossdressing issue but instead of someone talking sense to them like Ainz does, the latter generations after the demise of 6GG/Surshana just rolled with the fanclub mentality to "honor" their roots.
I could see few of the more outlandish seats moaning about how this shows their faith and what not and how the rest of NW can't into proper fashion (over form & utility).
True but such zealotry would only work if the gear actually provides function on top of the looks.
We've only seen Clementine and her shit wasn't anything much to call home. At least when she tried to fight against real human bean like Momon and it was all about her skills and well the stilettos were quite good quality.
That remains to be seen, we know it's junk compared to max lvl offensive abilities (Purifying Javelin) but a 1vs1 match with someone like Go Gin or geared Gazef would give good indication.
Or Old Guarders/Pleiades vs random mob of Black Scriptures.
According to v10 intermission, they're some kind of legacy/relic-class equipment, which is still a grade or two below legendary (most common top-tier equipment) or divine (highest-tier equipment that was practical for most players to have).
So it's probably nothing much to a properly-geared max level player, but considering even a high-class magic item like the misty shortsword was considered amazing to Osk the weapon collector, it's probably leaps and bounds better than whatever the best enchanters and smiths of the world can produce.
Incidentally, I'm thinking that the BS gear was leftover stuff from when the 6GGs were levelling up. It would explain why they have weird skins and why there's so many of them -- you go through a lot of equipment as you gear up through the levels.
>True but such zealotry would only work if the gear actually provides function on top of the looks.
It does. It's called out in several places to provide powerful stat boosts. v4 intermission and v10 intermission, for a couple.
>We've only seen Clementine and her shit wasn't anything much to call home. At least when she tried to fight against real human bean like Momon and it was all about her skills and well the stilettos were quite good quality.
That wasn't her BS gear, though. She explicitly states that she left it all behind when she went AWOL.
Well to them, they basically witnessed "Gods".
If one pops up in our world with a erected penis on his forehead. Goes around destorying armies and curing illness and invented some super instant cure all illness device.
You bet your ass his followers will want erected dicks on their foreheads.
>They look like completely usual jRPG gear.
yeah pretty much
>for a doppelganger to shape shift does he have to copy the form of another being
Nope. Also keep in mind that Nabe only has minimal levels in Doppelganger and if I recall it was mentioned that she's basically able to use one form and that's it.
I'm more surprised at how she can be a Wizard when she's such an idiot.
Her appearance is just a skin made by the SBs. Because she only has one level in the doppelganger race, she can't change her appearance besides her actual look and the egg-like face.
It was never said tha doppelgangers have a max of 45 possible transformations, it's just that PA can transform into 45 different beings. Seeing as Narbe only have two forms, I guess it depends on the level of the doppel. A level 100 with all race and job classes focused on transformation can probably change into 100 forms.
Sebas x Tsuare is the only good ship in Overlord.
>Inb4 BDL kidnaps Tsuare in his great granddaughters wedding
>Sebas: why are you taking her away?!
>BDL: oh, shes yours? she smells like used goods
>*Dragon fight ensues
Yes. Tsuare confirmed for being a pedophile.
It is likely due to the fact there is very little the main cast does. No super spectacular things going on in the LN. Just some lizards being killed. not relevant to plot. Then theres a whole chapter on adventurers not relevant to the main plot. Then the nazarick defense team entrench themselves and boost their defence. Until book 9 nothing really happens that would sell the anime. This is not my personal opinion but rather an assumption.
Kadokawa sold a lot of books so there's likely no reason for a season two.
If they ever do, I doubt they'll adapt 4. 5-6 Are Sebas and Demi focused with plenty of fight scenes and Climb fighting the jobbing maid so that would be nice. I could see 5 and 6 being four episodes each and maybe 8 being the last four, skipping 7 and 4 for mostly being NW'ders getting shat on focused.
Also I had a question for Chinese people if they know, I though China had this huge cultural thing about bones being sacred isn't Overlord doing quite well over there? Why is Ainz getting a pass despite being bones?
Are you thinking about the Buddhists and how they buy/revere the sacred relics of the lamas? Not everyone is Buddhist, you know. The Chinese don't care about bones one way or another.
That was government censorship. There's no cultural bias about them either way.
Besides, OL seems to be more popular in HK and TW, both of which are somewhat removed from the CCP's policies.
It's just a matter of time, the anime sold great and will keep selling as long as they include those extras.
The director is busy now with another movie so maybe in 2017 (2 or 3 year waiting period is normal for anime).
I was going to say this but then I realized that Albedo is the only major conflict in the story right now that poses an actual threat to Ainz's goals and thus makes the story better.
Climb is just there to get shat upon and hopefully v5 was the last real focus we get on him until Hime goes full hetermorphic.
I think the true answer is that there is none because everyone in the end is just there to play off Ainz and his antics.
She's got new friends now. She was just sad before because no one was as smart as her, now she has at least two that could snap her like a twig, share her moral viewpoint, and match her in intelligence.
Climb a shit.
Albedo herself is more useful as someone who makes things happen, while Climb is basically an audience surrogate to bring people together. His role could be filled by Brain, who has more attitude to boot.
>heh, nothing personal kid
>I cut the fingernail of a literal god
>my katana skills have been refined to perfection
>I sought a weapon of immeasurable power... a katana...
>Gazef, in the next world I'll show you my skills. Train hard in the underworld until then!
He's the loyal knight character who could never admit that his dick exists.
There's a clear foil between him and Ainz and with Albedo and Renner buddying up this volume I bet a Climb and Ainz thing will be next.
I would honestly prefer that to 'muh hime" all the time.
That's what Climb did, right? He brought Brain and Sebas together and serves as someone to listen to exposition so the audience can overhear him.
But he keeps appearing, shouldn't most POVs be limited to their volumes?, he seems like he's going to be a regular for the whole LN.
That's a granted, suddenly having a slut daughter doesn't seem so bad.
>But he keeps appearing
5-6 which sets up renner, team evileye, the downfall of the kingdom, eight arms, and he got one fight
9 in which he weeps over Gazef and assumes his role
and 10 where he's being dumb in a carriage
Him and Renner are just a going to be a plot bomb, thats all.
Renner has no one to mortify with her big reveal that she's actually a souless monster inside then.
She can always do that to Lakyus, Evileye and the rest of Blue Rose. Plus, it has less impact for us as an audience since we already know she's heteromorph-kin and Albedo just paid for her surgery.
>inb4 Renner planned for Climb to finish her off after she transformed, for some tragedy fetish.
She wanted to see Climb's puppy eyes extingushed.
Renner isn't that dumb, >>143573264
If Renner instead had a huge crush on Lakyuss and tried to use Nazarick and the Demon Disturbance to prop up Blue Rose that would have been a lot better than Climb, she's her only "friend" and is an "ally of justice".
He's an audience surrogate and a sign of how the standard knight/hero tropes mean absolute dogshit in the face of overwhelming power, so I would retain him just for that. But if I had to drop a character, it would be him.
Maybe she'll preserve his beautiful eyes in a test tube.
Albedo is a pretty boring character. In my opinion she only works well when she is paired with Shalltear but when she is alone she really is shit because the joke that she is lusting for the bone get old really fast. Her only saving grace is her hatred for the SBs and her hit squad that will surely cause some problems for Ainz (most probably something with Rubedo rebelling), but this won't come up till some volumes.
Shalltear is a similar case. She being in love with Ainz only works well when she is with Albedo but otherwise her lust for the bone also got old really fast but at least she has her interactions with Aura, being depressed by failing her mission and raising her hand against Ainz and overall being an incompetent guardian that tries her best even though she is not smart.
I think you know the point is to have a 'main girl' yandere for the cast. Ainz having the whole guilt trip thing too is a nice metaphor for him believing that he isn't fit to rule Nazarick, but he's getting cocky so I don't know how much longer that subplot is going to run
So apparently Ainz keeps batting Albedo off because he altered her settings and because he has no bone, but why does he ignore Shalltear?, he should at least start a non sexual relationship with her.
You missed the bath scene where he clearly stated he likes women but has no interest in a relationship and the constant "I can only see them as children of my friends".
The closest to him emotionally is Albedo because of his sense of guilt, he likes her boobs, and he respects her skills as a manager and confidant. She was the one he told everything to before going to face Shalltear when he drove her to tears because she thought he was going to abandon them.
That and he has no dick.
Aura is going to let the misunderstanding leak eventually and Albedo will go nuclear.
So all his prospects are blackmailed relationships?
>Albedo: you changed my settings so you should take responsibility!
>Shalltear: my creator made me this way, so you shall accept my love!
>Aura: Its been very lonely since Bukuchagama sama left so...
Poor Ainz, he will never find a woman that truly loves him for his true self. The NPCs only love him because they were programmed to do so and Evileye only loves a fake persona. Will he ever find a woman where he will get into an actual romantic relationship? The sad thing is that even if he finds one Albedo would most surely plot her death. That's why Beholder Mage Girl is needed.
Mostly Albedo since thats the only one he cares about since it was an error on his part and the wound is fresh.
Plus he's a titman.
I think the real reason is that Albedo is the only one who he opens up to, if out of guilt or simply because she's the smartest.
He's a skeleton now things aren't the same any-
>beholder mage girl
fuck I almost took you seriously get out.
Yeah I don't know what dumb bastard started that one, if anything Albedo is a selfish bitch who would take Nazarick down in flames if it meant she could get the bone, not suicide.
Found new stuff on the nip archive, a pity they are small.
From what i understand about Workes, i think they kinda deserved it.
Before they take a Job, they are gathering Information and considering to refuse it, should the risk outweigh the Price.
And they had no Infromation about this Place at all. Experience and things they heared about other Workes, who did died because of taking risky Jobs, screaming at them "Nope!".
The only thing i find Sad is, that Arche got off so easy. She should have become Shalltear's Pet for the rest of her existence. She should have absolutely Obedience towards her Mistress, that not even seing her Sister's, would change anything in her Mind or Heart, besides "Obeying Mistress".
Nigun summoning the strongest angel humanity knows.
Managed to find shalltear raping yuri, will upload it on imgur and post link later.
I feel I should translate this for all mankind. However, my JP is not good.
Playing with Nemu-chan
Nemu-chan lifts her dress after being asked. Her face is bright red with embarrassment.
Nemu: Uncle Birdman... is this... okay?
Nemu: It's scary... onee-chan...!
Nemu was quite disturbed by the request of the scarf-wearing maniac to take her clothes off. Not knowing what will happen to her next, her young body trembles in fear.
Peroroncino: My Laputa... is right here! (there is a deep meaning to this)
(TL Note: he might be referring to the redheaded loli with braids from Laputa: Castle In The Sky)
Peroroncino the birdman saved the village from the clutches of the Slaine Theocracy, who were disguised as Imperial soldiers. The village chief offered all their money to him. However, Peroroncino refused the money in exchange for a one-night stand with Nemu. She actually suggested herself in place of Enri to the village chief and his wife. After all, this was a world where the strong ate the weak.
At first, she had no idea what kind of choice she was making. "I'm fine, onee-chan."
Once she realised the true misfortune she had gotten herself into after sensing the reaction from around her, Nemu continued smiling, so as not to make her big sister worry.
The fact that she was hiding her unease excited Peroroncino, who pushed aside his own guilt at the thought of doing lewd things with her. However, the thought that he would trample a young girl's heart only made his penis harder, and soaked her panties.
Pero: Keep it a secret from my big sis, Momonga-san... Uehihi~
Thanks for translations.
Shalltear raping Yuri and Ainz with his create penis magic.
I guess i should upload all my folder somewhere when i have the time.
I have more stuff but will stop here for now.
Who knows, maybe he has same taste as peroroncino?
Have some aura instead, Shalltear cant grow up.
I hope i find art of Mare with the elves maids too.
>Shalltear cant grow up
but imagine her with a fully developed body
Unexpected twist in Ulbert and Touch Me 's relationship.
I'm not a fan of her clothes/equipment.
I always pictured her equipment looking similar to Shalltears Valkyrie armor.
And we'll probably get no official art of her still in vol 11
>no strong men
>no beautiful women
>no smell of amonia
>no poker face
>no expensive items that you would never be able to afford even if you worked a lifetime
He does this all the time
>>no strong men
>>no beautiful women
>>no smell of amonia
That was only in book 1
>>no poker face
Ainz does this all the time
>>no expensive items that you would never be able to afford even if you worked a lifetime
Have the big version in my folder but too busy with checking the nip archive.
meant this one, since desu died I cant seem to find it
Do you accept holy offers in valentine chocolate currency?
One more choco!
Plus Waargh sucking Nfirea cock.
Is this beholder girl, nip version?Holy caster instead of magician.
No idea if fanart of Surshana or what.
Considering that it would take a fully geared adamantite adventuring party (difficulty 90ish, +10 for numbers) to handle a single DK (difficulty 100), it's pretty good, actually.
True strong by NW standards but still not something worth robbing them over when it comes to Nazarick's quest for power..
Though I wonder if they have managed to cultivate unique martial arts or skills with the eugenics program, that might spare few in the eyes of Ainz.
If one of them manages to blurt out "they're descendants of Players" then maybe that would give Ainz something to think for.
Will be amusing to know which party he'll hear the X-kin from first, Evileye via PA or Shalltear's brainwashing coming into light and painting the shadow of gallows behind Theocracy.
I hope it will be former so Ainz will plan accordingly and make reservations to snatch or gain that information from the root.
No, it's not worth robbing them, especially since Ainz probably has better versions of everything they have back in Nazarick.
Still, it does make them strong by NW standards, which was the point I was getting at. Also, Demi would love to get his hands on the ST's eugenics program. Albedo would also be delighted, because she could use it to leverage Ainz into breeding her (the exact process is left as an exercise for the reader).
It has nothing to do with tangible change, they were revered as Gods for their efforts to help humanity.
Unless you know they have made unique spells that directly ask for power like Roberdyck mentions that their weak ass shit feels like someone is lending them the power.
And I really doubt the humanoid players managed to turn into actual deities and then leave their last friend behind?
>how the other players became Gods since they have made their own holy system.
We don't know if they actually became gods, we really have no idea how fate based magic works in the NW.
Like >>143582551 said, the 6GGs were just incredibly powerful beings who were worshipped for their might, not actual gods.
Solution has a better chance of counting as a god since she literally has Primordial Chaos (Ubbo Sathla) as one of her classes.
>But in the bonus there are lines about nanomachines, direct connection to the brain, etc.
That isn't relevant as far as we know, it's just to show how fucking horrible and future his world is.
>Momon and Ainz Ooal Gown is the same person!
Not to the NWers, since they believe them to be sperate people it's possible that in the future there could be faith type spells related to the two.
Lets say Surshana is still alive , that he is now low level because of the 8gk and that his subordinate the theocracy told of keeps him lockef down for his safety(like Demiurge wanted to di for Ainz).
Could Ainz use the undead control magic to make him his subordinate?
Why does Ainz think Demiurge's choice to name himself as Jaldabaoth as wierd? When Yalbabaoth is related to Demiurge? Did Ulbert not share Demi's lore with Ainz?
>Could Ainz use the undead control magic to make him his subordinate?
We don't know, we haven't evem seen if Ainz can control normal undead or if he can only control his summons. But I doubt he could control a player like that.
>Did Ulbert not share Demi's lore with Ainz?
The only NPC's Ainz really seems to know alot about is his own PA and Chair since he was best friends with Pero. Plus Ainz doesn't seem to know alot of mythology aside from a few things.
>implying he is not being raped already by editor's bushy vagina
Vol 3 Chap 3 Part 2
"Even so, is it really an external reason? Because that text display means mind-control… But
then there is no way to confirm this. Or perhaps there were some changes in the settings after arriving
in this world. I have yet to completely memorize all of the NPCs’ personality settings too. Furthermore,
some parts of the NPCs’ personality settings were similar to the Guild members who created them…
I think there shouldn’t be anyone who could completely export his or her personality into settings,
therefore it could be due to this. Speaking of which, about Shalltear… Could it be that her settings
contain something akin to a timed explosive mechanism? Because her creator enjoyed H-Games, and
input some kind of girl game conquest event in her… Woah, that’s very possible."
He might just not have gotten to Demi's yet, or the lore is not included into his settings. I however think Ulbert would have included it.
>or the lore is not included into his settings
It's probably this, I doubt Ulbert crammed his settings full of the lore behind the mythological Demiurge.
His settings are probably full of chunni stuff about how smart and cunning Demi is.
So Gagaran has the Air Rider job class. Does this mean she can be related to that tribe that specializes in taming and riding wyverns?
I wonder how is the event to conquer Shalltear. Ainz already cleared her route from start but will Brain be able to do the same?
Finished fanart with almighty Ainz sama and sweet Entoma chan~
One day So-Bin will release his Clem porn stash. Believe.
No really anon its great.
No you fug the bug anon.
yeah, theyre faceted crystals when he's not in frog form
Ainz fugure(nip fanmade, almost complete, do not know who is the one broadcasting it )
Just why the hell Ainz skull so difficult to draw?
Also Madhouse Ainz the best.
Shut up EE or you know whats for dinner?
though I don't think theyre good for eating after being sprayed
Almost done with the Pleiades page. Only need pic related translated.
Clem. She's gonna make it. I can feel it.
Evileye holding Entoma's head like this pic.
Uploading my overlord folder to nyaa(or at least trying to) at the moment.As soon as it is ready i will share the link.
>there are small pics
>there are doubles/triples
You can blame me for this, tough i will not really care. Too lazy to check everything.
Hash code should be this.
It is called "overlord stuff".
The Ashura on the BD special was just level 90 right?, that means that some monsters have better way stats that players, could Mare's dragons be the case also, if so could the DLs be a threat to Ainz?
The Asura was a level 90 raid boss. Those tend to have better stats than a standard player because they fight entire parties at once.
And no, the DLs are not raid bosses.
So in the first drama CD Pinison mentioned that Zy'tl Q'ae suddenly appeared from the sky along with a bunch of monsters, could those be the Demon Gods? It seems like the NW just takes things from YGG randomly, maybe a raid boss could end up in YGG or an entire city or area?
Sorry, thread will sink already when this request will be done.
How come Albedo panties never show up through her dress?
I'm more curious on how she is able to run with this dress, I mean she and Shalltear were running in that cd drama where Hamsuke get lost in Nazarick.
Ainz was a dick for not inviting PA to take a bath with him and the guardians.
Buddhists is popular in China but not dominating, we have a mix of multiple religions
As for Overlord, it's doing pretty well in the Anime community, we had an official semicast when Overlord aired, it has 33.5 million view counts by far and still growing
people love to see a OP character transfer to a new world and, instead doing some white knight SJW bullshits or go slap his dick at everyone's faces just to prove he is a badass, Papa bone is a keikaku master and a responsible father
