Why was the previous thread suddenly deleted?
so judging from this image. Ainz has a double identity as sebas as well?
I'm reading them right now, did books 4 and above ever get final revisions? The typos and paragraphing errors get so jarring at times that I almost want to do my own edit. They also skipped on proper punctuation when they used western formatting.
Only the text. Nobody added into the youtube link.
>literally the one of 2 highlights of the volume
>spammed the fuck out whenever the character is mentioned in threads
Pro tip: After Climb
They would all literally shut down mentally if something were to happen to Ainz, like him 'leaving' like the rest of AOG.
With Sebas being one of the firsts to do so along with top brass.
Lupu and Nabe 100% would make a great team.

Well Anon, you could actually try and read everything backwards.
You mean the smartest motherfucker ever non...living.
I do other things. I also talk to stupid people online. Aren't I kind?
You're going to keep responding to me like we're arguing about something aren't you?
Stupid! Stupid! You fool!
You started it doofus
And then there's this fucker
I think it's a nuke, but I'm not sure where I heard that from. Might also be something for survival.
>not know every piece of Overlord art drawn by So-bin by heart
And you call yourself a fan
actually I'm digging through my folder too. It's funny how a lot of fan art didn't start coming out until the anime.
Entoma, your body ready for some discipline?
AOE destroy enemies weapons. No save unless it is also a WCI or the enemy have a WCI.
Vol 12 better be all Demi I swear to fucking go Mura you've been blue balling us for almost 10 volumes now just tell us what the fuck he's been doing this whole time.
Or you could devote the whole volume to SOL Enri farm living. That's fine too.
Well for all the fan arts out there, a lot are CZ based.
Kinda strange she hardly even appear in the Anime.
Yuri have the lowest number
Well I bet they get "disarmed" anyway.
FBI-kun you're terrible at your job.
It means its a checkov's gun for Nfirea to eventually obtain and use to destroy the Staff of Ainz Ooal Gown, thus vanquishing Ainz and Nazerick by a Ygg-induced technical loophole
Which is a shame because I liked the world building in it. While reading it, I half expected one of the tribe leaders to actually be one of the 41 or become Nazarick's vanguard.
The whole volume exists for no reason. Ainz goes and subjugates the lizard people - and then what? Nothing ever comes from it. It's just bad writing to include things that serve no purpose to the greater story. Volume 4 could have been skipped entirely and the rest of the plot would be entirely unaffected.
He's not dumb, he just REALLY needs to lose his bad habit of MOTHERFUCKING THINKING ALOUD.
I have co-workers who do this, so Suzuki Satoru was probably the same way.
It's jarring as fuck, especially if you're not sure if they're talking to you, on the phone, etc.
Maybe in the dystopian cyberpunk future everybody is so tuned into something in the Internet of Things for common day-to-day functionality that thinking aloud is no longer noticed and becomes a socially unnoticed habit?
What you mean it didn't matter? It served as Ainz's confirmation that guardians can grow and we also had cocytus develop which even resulted in him not following the order blindly and asking Ainz to spare the Lizards instead.
Not to mention the MC'er didn't appear and that served as an incentive for AInz to move more freely since the matter with Shaltier could've resulted from just an accident,
I on the other hand think that the volume was more on the solid side overall.
>I on the other hand think that the volume was more on the solid side overall.
It IS a good standalone for me, at least. It has a horrendous start, but the payoff is good.
I just wish the lizardmen weren't shafted in later characterization. Bringing Zenberu to the Dwarves was underutilized; we should have at least gotten a Zenberu POV chapter or Intermission/epiloge at least to talk about his adventures and what he thinks of Ainz-sama.
Really, the lizardmen were great compared to the Disturbance in the Capital arc. The lead in and even the climax were pretty lackluster to read to me, albeit it advanced the overall plot very nicely once it was done.
The story is about a bunch of overpowered beings. The entire plot with the Kingdom is about as "necessary" as the lizards, since Nazarick doesn't really need much of anything.
I don't like the lizards much, but saying it exists for no reason is silly.
Those were all good things that came from it, sure, but if there was to be a volume about Cocytus's character growth it would have made much more sense for him to do so interacting with characters that later become relevant. Instead we learn about a bunch of lizardmen, their friends, rivals, struggles, etc. and none of it matters in the least outside of volume 4. Cocytus's character growth is the only thing relevant past volume 4 and I cant help but feel like that could have been learned and still advance the plot in meaningful ways at the same time.
Yeah, I didn't like the lead in to that too. I mean the climax was going to be a pretend fight? What a riveting tale.
At least it has some funny scenes like Momon and Jaldabaoth practically having a tea party when no one was looking and Nabe fight vs the other maids.
Does the plant monster comeback in later volumes? That albino is 2sexy. No scalie.
>Albino is 2sexy
Last thread have Anon asking why some Anons here are so attrached to the lizardmen. And started pointing out Anons here like lizard sex.
No possible. Undead, Slime and Robot, no sex drive.
Well she was jelly of that death inspired sex in vol.4, I'm sure she envisioned herself being pressed like that by Ainz, and if Ainz manages to change race at will who knows what sort of kinky stuff he'll try, for matting press turn into a Lizard, for doggie style turn into a ...
Well, if we were to consider that these are NPCs with memories from the times when they were still in game, the atrocities committed on a regular basis by AOG from their perspective might rank up way higher back then than right now.
From their perspective, Ainz Oaal Gown was a guild that literally went around murdering the Gods themselves just to steal their shit.

Someone else is using my draft script for that. It's not the one Mr. Shy and I were working on.
Yes, the Overlord and YS authors are good friends. Crosspromotion was only to be expected, really.
Nyaa or something?
Can't find any.
>we might have YS be referenced in the february or march movie
I know that Overlord isn't as 'adjustable' as YS is to just throw another series promo but it's gonna be funny if it does happen.
It could be adjustable simply by having a genius edgy special snowflake loli who's older and more mature than she looks, concerned with rising the ranks inside the Theocracy as a secret weapon in the Black Scripture

Can't wait till we get off this continent and to some real conquering.
She kinda tried, once. To be fair even if she did what you said, WCI ain't worth shit if the ppl she is threatening also have WCI.
What would Shalltear be capable of making Nazarick do if the fight in vol.3 turned in her favor and she held Ainz as a hostage? More importantly, what wouls she even ask?
O god here we go again.
Champion cum would be slay of Ainz, Climb
Is there any game out right now, that gives you a similar feel that which overlord does
Try playing your favorite MMORPG pretending to be Ainz. Overlord reminded me of an old WoW guild where I was guild master, it made me pick WoW again last year, playing as Warlock for the first time, though I got bored after a month. We can only wait for real VR to make its debut, I guess.
There's no game where you can even go from a boney skinny skele to based ainz gain why
Dungeon Keeper or
What Did I Do To Deserve This, My Lord?
Since Maruyama has focussed more on worlbuilding now, that means there wont be more SOL moments, like Ainz taking the Guardians to the beach as soon as he gets some coast line?
in the novel yes she was killed by shalltear offscreen. luckily she likely had a painless death as she fainted right before because char was being too lewd for her to handle.
In the old web novel version however, she was taken by shalltear and made into a sex slave complete with cat ears and buttplug tail.
You can play Skyrim:SE with Ordinator Perk Overhaul, one of necromancer perks allows you to have a mob of skeletons with you, and if Oldrim mod which lets you be a skeleton is ported into Skyrim:SE you can roleplay Ainz Pretty easily.
Don't forget to take Apocalypse Magic mod as well, since it gives a lot of death oriented spells without fucking up the balance.
I thought all adventures had sad stories, and since apparently Lakyuss learned from her uncle, and given that most apprentice master relationships usually turn sexual and since they're nobility, and since nobility is usually incestuous, well you can guess the rest.

Wanna join this thread so bad but still at volume 10 which I'm rationing right now. Except the silly fan service part I swear this anime/LN was made for me. Seriously can't watch any other anime because too hooked on this one
how about the two mini-bosses of the cemetery? I forgot the names, I think one was clementine, the other was the necromancer-like guy that reminds me of kel'thuzad, their corpses disappeared iirc.
yeah ainz spoken about resurrections and the possibility that resurrected npcs could respawn at their original spawn point, anyone capable of resurrecting 2 people like those has to be at least on pair with devilseye.
What is your favourite overlord doujin so far?
None of them really. Most art is bad or the story is stupid and typical.
They moe'd him up a little, but it can't be helped right? It can't be helped, Ainz-sama is just too cute
> anyone capable of resurrecting 2 people like those has to be at least on pair with devilseye.
And then there's Lakyus, half of what Evileye is and can rez people, especially Kaj and Clem.
Oh boy, it's this again. Haven't heard this 30 dozen times before.
The charge was used and the wish was activated, but the request was beyond the power of the magic. It's part of the reason why he was so mad.
Evileye has some levels in Vampire Princess, which make her stronger but don't boost her spellcasting so much.
It's quite possible that she is a distant relative of the players or NPC-es.
Maybe she has a succubus in her lineage.
Spear of Longinus could do the trick.
He obviously will start a show "Pimp My Adventuring Gear."
hnnng.. that part when they cuddled with ainz and talked about family and shit was very nice.
Huh. I just realized I hate how mages always seem to be wearing rags.
When Shalltear found something wet on her lips I thought Albedo had forgotten to clean a spot in the pillow, I dont know why but that was extremely arousing.
>cocytus not wearing anything
he's the ultimate exhibitionist, also checked.
>Most of them don't even include Ainz
Jesus. I noticed the game's combat grinds to a halt whenever someone casts a projectile like vine. I'd hate to fight an army with a dozen of that shit casting it every second.
>guardians think Yggdrasil was your "original" world?
do they? I don't remember them talking about this subject at all though, original world could mean anything, the world where the overlords come from for example, they could interpretate it like that.
No. They know the Supreme Beings were higher plane creatures who go to Ygg to have jolly cooperation.
I just read vol 1 and the first chapter is sad as fuck. I kinda glossed over how truly lonely Ainz was at the end. Going to NW was probably the best thing but also the worst thing to happen to him because while he's having "fun", the Guardians remind him too much of his guild mates.
>They know the Supreme Beings were higher plane creatures who go to Ygg to have jolly cooperation.
Where was this stated? From what I've understood they treated SBs like mysterious incomprehensible beings above their understanding, but still ones from Yggdrasil.
The only place I've ever seen the guardians acknowledging Ainz and co coming from a different world to Yggdrasil was this drama CD. I'm not sure where you're pulling this from.
I think it's kind of implied by the fact that they don't come to the NPC's world anymore. I recall in one of the early books the NPCs being disappointed that the supreme beings have abandoned them, but happy that Momonga stayed.
This >>152262042 in earlier volumes NPC fear that SB actually perished but Ainz comforts them that they just left for another world.
Later in Drama CD (not the latest one) NPC assemble to discuss what SB was saying back when Ygg was a game, I assume they understood that these matters was relevant to another world, not Yggdrasil.
>So yes i think that threat is worth a lot.
Unless the target or the affected has a WCI as well, in which case it's about as threatening as the HP potion.
Hell even Longinus is shit if the target has a WCI.
What If I stab Longinus into the ground?
>Based fucking Mare outkeikakuing Albedo, Shalltear, Demiurge and then sucking up to Ainz.
On the subject of the SB being from other worlds, in volume 3 Albedo asks Ainz are they dead and he responds something like that.
“Yes, just so. However, Ainz-sama… from the name of this place, and these statues… Could it be that the other Supreme Beings have passed away?”
“That… is not exactly correct.”
No, perhaps that was the right answer.
Demiurge and Albedo suspect that Ainz is hiding the deaths of other SBs by saying they 'left'
cigar shop way too far away.
And they know that Ainz is sensitive about other SB's so it only further expands their suspicion, and sorrow.
PA on the other hand is chill as fuck as he takes everything Ainz tells him at face value even if he notices/knows the cover-up since Ainz his god/creator obviously knows best.
Yes but Albedo also formed her strike squad in the case of the other SB coming into the NW. On another note, I wonder if part of her reasoning is when Ainz edited her she inherited his anger to them for leaving him
Perfectly fine, since only the guardians stood a chance against her anyway.
>Lizards use the power of friendship to defeat the scary lich
>Only to be told that this was all a game for a supreme one and their sacrifices mean little
People can say what they want, but i liked vol4 climax.
Yea the ending is fine, it's just that 2/3 of the volume doesn't need to be the buildup. We understand (or, will soon enough) in the manga that their nakama meant nothing.
rororo's "sacrifice" in the LN actually made me laugh a good deal for how forcibly 'dramatic' it was, though I am kind of glad it didn't die
I must say i agree here, buildup could be shortened.
I feel a little same about Climb volume. All kingdom parts around him are interesting, until the moment we start reading his sperging out about muh princess.
I should give it to Maruyama, i really wanted to see Climb punched when he was talking to prince Zannack. Can't even explain why.
I just realized that was arc was remarkably similar to Avatar: down-to-earth native tribe gaining unity due to interference not-so-native member of the said tribe and managing to push back scary technologically-advanced invaders.
And then comes Ainz with a reality check.

The first angel sounded, and there followed hail and fire mingled with blood, and they were cast upon the earth: and the third part of trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up.

And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters; And the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter. And the fourth angel sounded, and the third part of the sun was smitten, and the third part of the moon, and the third part of the stars; so as the third part of them was darkened, and the day shone not for a third part of it, and the night likewise. And I beheld, and heard an angel flying through the midst of heaven, saying with a loud voice, Woe, woe, woe, to the inhabiters of the earth by reason of the other voices of the trumpet of the three angels, which are yet to sound!
Where do I start reading from if I've only seen the anime?
volume 1, chapter 1(fuck the prologue)
there used to be a zip file filled with overlord art,wallpapers and character statsheets floating around last time i was here, anyone got an updated version of that?
Just because he didn't want to leave Nazarick and his friends behind doesn't mean he can't change his mind, especially as he meets more people like Ainzack and co, the mature thing to do would be leaving Nazarick and focusing on the things he really wants to do.
The mature thing to do is to realize that "focusing on the things you really want to do" is a supremely selfish move in context, and that Nazarick really is just that important for him.
He's already been more considerate than his friends would ever be, most of them would just fuck the female NPCs and go cigar shopping. Why is being selfish wrong anyways?
>more considerate than his friends
Who the fuck cares what his friends would do? Nazarick is literally his children as far as he's concerned.
>why is being selfish wrong anyways
It isn't, but to him he's taking care of Nazarick because it's something important to him. He doesn't WANT to dump them behind, you completely misinterpret his whining about wanting companionship. He wants companionship but he's also taking care of Nazarick for reasons other than muh friends.
All he needs is to leave someone else to rule Nazarick, but it won't work unless that person has his
So if they were more independent and normal, would he be more inclined to leave because they could manage without him, or would he be more likely to stay since they would treat him like a normal person?
>So if they were more independent and normal, would he be more inclined to leave because they could manage without him, or would he be more likely to stay since they would treat him like a normal person?
He would lose his main reason to leave (permanently - I imagine he's tell them stuff like 'okay lads I'm going on a trip to [x], gonna do some EXPLORAN - Mare, Pandora's Actor, and Demiurge, it's your turn to come with me if you want' once in a while), but he wouldn't lose his main reason to stay.
Yeah well what does the body of a warrior even mean? Because look at her picture for Volume 1, she doesn't look very warrior-esque
Maybe he's talking about her possible Nalfshnee form?
They're Yggdrasil constructs for fuck sake.
Stop wondering how one can be hard as steel at one time and mushy at others when they pack a nuke level of energy behind their attacks.
>body of a warrior
Even if Ainz had a dick wouldn't he need to take a few warrior classes or get better phys stats, since I dont think a wizard can keep up sith a lvl 100 Warrior succubus.
Yeah, you can.
What do you think muscles are? They softer than fat when you're not stretching/straining/whateverthefuckit'scalled them.
Those body builders or what not with super muscle definition are basically danger level dehydrated so they can look good.

I'm not sure what you're objecting to, but if you dislike the worldbuilding this much it may truly not be for you. One of the biggest draws of overlord is the worldbuilding (and also Ainz' interactions I guess)
Try plowing through v8 (which is '''filler''') and v9 (which is not at all). If you still dislike it after v9 then I think you can safely conclude it truly is not for you.
I'm not a fag
Honestly, if he can make it to v9 he might as well go for the rest.

*into anything girly and willing
If it looks like a girl but is actually a male - it's more willing than average female.
>"no no im totally straight he just looks like a girl!"
Technically speaking, if you want to fuck someone who looks almost exactly like a girl then you're not gay up to the point where you realize it is not actually a girl. This doesn't apply in real life as much because pheromones play a big role.
>because pheromones play a big role
