Getting back into posting on here. I got a lot of short thoughts on some of the anime I’ve been watching this past summer. Overlord III is one of them. The thing is a really liked the story in season 1 and then in season 2 it was great to get a closer look at his subordinates and their stories. Now we’re onto season 3 and I’m starting to get a little disappointed.
The thing is Overlord is an anime about a man who’s stuck in a video game as his OP character due to some weird unexplained glitch on the day the game server was supposed to be shutdown. Where Overlord separates itself from the rest of the “stuck in a video game” genre is the main protagonist has yet to make any real effort to get out. After watching a few episodes of Overlord III, it’s almost as if he’s accepted he’s gonna be stuck in this world forever and his band of OP monsters is his new family. His origin, what actually happened to cause him to be stuck in this game seem to be a mute point.
This is where my disappointment comes in. I like this genre of anime cause I not only find it interesting how the person who’s stuck deals with the video game world but also how they get out. I really hope this doesn’t turn into an anime like Detective Conan where we are waiting forever for the end of the journey. However, it seems for now our main protagonist is fine being the great Ainz Ooal Gown, Lord of Great Tomb of Nazarick.
With that being said, don’t let this discourage you from checking out this anime if you haven’t seen it yet. It’s definitely worth a look despite my wining. 🙂
