Why do people hate this again?
It isn't afraid to show more mature scenes, the mc isn't a goody 2 shoes and actually gets things done.
dumping ch 28 too
This guy gets it.
It's trash and only gets more trash as it goes on.
Enjoy no conflict and every opponent being breezed through easily. Literally everything always goes the MCs way
>"Oh no, I lost my arm fighting a bear!"
>"Nevermind here is a super legendary magic arm artifact, how convenient!"
>"Wow I am actually struggling with this fight!"
>"Lol JK I was actually just holding back here is my actual power haha"
You seem to be under the misconception that we hate it because it's mature, but in fact people hate it because it's maturity as seen through the eyes of a twelve year old.
The MC is always portrayed as a good person even when he does something evil the tone of the manga never recognizes this and instead treats him as if he were right in his actions.
Honestly if he just raped the elves and reveled in how much of a shitty person he is I could totally dig it, but it's not enough for the author that he rape elves, he also needs to look like a good guy while doing it.
It's infantile self-masturbatory and evil, but at the same time it feels the need to deny its own intention by painting the protagonist as being inherently good despite not actually doing anything good.
Don't forget how conveniently every girl falls for his dick because even though he kills people he's a nice guy™ that they understand and have stockholm syndrome over.
If he at least pondered about why yandere girl killed him in the past life I might have read it, but it's always been "bad people attacking gotta turn the tides on them then get more harem girls and overpowered gear/"
There is such a moral fucking disconnect with it all.
>I want to eat sentient creatures/humans to gain power
>I am a good guy
I read up to day 200 or so of the LN and believe me it doesn't improve. In fact he even gets an even edgier fucking form. And then tops it off with ANOTHER EVEN FUCKING EDGIER FUCKING FORM (With four arms that are all his magic prosthetic arm)
Also he even literally eats a fucking monster (that is alive and probably has a relative amount of intelligence) by dismembering it and keeping it alive whilst he eats it.
I stopped reading when it got to the point where he started actually becoming a literal god, in case anybody is wondering. (some bullshit about being able to use divine energy or something).
I have a high tolerance for garbage but this was too much
Overlord is and always will be better.
At least Overlord has the decency not to pretend that most opponents can defeat Ainz, however there are actual threats to him that exist in the world so he can't be careless.
He also has more of a reason to be a callous evil fuckwad due to his newly undead nature literally making him hate the living, and even then he tries his hardest to make friends and be nice.

I, too, remember being thirteen and thinking that retarded fanfic-tier power fantasies were good simply because they were "dark and mature."
This, basically. I remember him refusing to rape the elves that he captured early on, and even executed a goblin who tried to rape the humans he had captured in the name of morality.
He then goes on to rape himself, and it's painted in a good light. The series is just not consistent in any way.
Not going to happen because they all love him very much because he is so kind. So kind.
Also is it just me or do Rou's conversations with females betray some severe lack of interaction from the writer with the opposite sex? It's like everything he knows about girls he got from bad harem anime and doujins.
im being sarcastic
The problem is the author wasn't.
Some of his retarded view would be acceptable (kind of) if he actually had any reason to need to become the strongest being in existence, like maybe he could have wanted to get strong enough to find a way back to his original world. Instead he just gets stronger for the sake of getting stronger, it's like reading a LN about Fucking Imperfect Cell but Cell is portrayed as a good guy for no reason.
That's it really. There's absolutely no conflicts amongst the characters and the mc never face consequences for his choices while being simultaneously portrayed as a good guy despite literally drug raping elves and eating their males.
