Great Anime!😆

I hope they eventually make a season two.

Excited

This is one of my absolutely favorite anime to come out in the last few years I was so excited to see it get and english dud and I was not disappointed

A gamer transported to another world!

The Description doesn't really explain things well. So here is a description +

Satoru Suzuki is a gamer. His game of Choice is a Virtual reality online role playing game called Yggdrasil. But Yggdrasil is outdated, and it's servers are about to be shut down. Satoru (His game character's name is Momonga,) Has many fond memories of playing with his friends in the infamous Monster Guild 'Ainz Ooal Gown.' In fact Momonga is currently the Guilds leader. And he is determined to stay logged in to the last second. Even though the rest of his friends have all long since moved on form the game to other things. He is the last one left.

As the clock tics over, instead of the game ending, something strange happens. Momonga finds his Guilds NPC Guardians have all come alive! and the game is no longer a game. It's never explained how, But it doesn't really matter. It's a strange new world, and the game is no longer a game. The None player character's are fanatically loyal to the Guilds leader, and revere him like a god. And now Satoru Suzuki is supposed to be their Evil un-dead Overlord!

Personally I loved everything about the Light novels/Anime. And I want more! Here is a few things to take into consideration if this show may be of interest to you.

The Protagonist is an anti hero. A Villain. And he is paranoid, and intelligent. His greatest flaw is his paranoia, which leads to him over preparing for the worst. But it also makes for a more realistic character, in that there is superfluous aspects to his plans. This kind of truly character driven plot is all to rare. And I love it.

The character's supporting Momonga are all Heteromorphic Monsters. Vampires, Angels/Demons, Slimes, Dragons, Insect. Monsters. And they all think very little, or even despise humanity. Momonga is the leader, he is an Undead Super Lich, an Overlord. But his mind, or soul is that of Satoru Suzuki. a Human gamer from our world. As such he finds himself in conflict with his physical nature. And so there is a blurring of his integrity, and his evil factor. Which begins to affect his Monster followers as well. Some of them may start to even develop a conscious (Spoiler,) others may hide the more truly monstrous goings on from Momonga, But in the end. Will Momonga forget that he was ever human? Expect some rather dark moments from the supporting cast, and even Momonga himself. These are not the good guys. But they just might have good intentions, So long as Momonga tells them to.

It's a fantasy 'Transported to another world' Anime. In the same genre niche as 'Log Horizon,' 'Sword Art Online, Re-Zero and so one. But the Protagonist in this one is an Anti Hero. A Villain with selfish, but often good intentions.

It's almost a Harem Anime, The girls all Like Momonga. Though he's technically a skeleton. So how that would ever work out, who knows.

The Anime covers, The Undead King Arc, which is basically the introduction.
The Dark Warrior Arc, Momonga who has changed his name goes under cover, and plays as a Good guy adventurer, Well... He has good intentions at least. sort of... ok not really. This one is Dark, not for the squeamish, It has a bloody ending.
The Bloody Valkyrie Arc, Something has happened to One of the NPCs! Has she rebelled? or is something else going on? It ends with a big fight. And an open mystery with unanswered plot threads that don't fully explain the end well. So Bad ending :( And it doesn't help that Satoru keeps jumping to wrong conclusions in thinking the enemy is more powerful then they actually are. The end leaves us with an unresolved mystery.
