Overlord is an animation series that focuses on a player called Momonga, a highly skilled player of a DMMO-RPG called Yggdrasil that became an instant hit to the public.


After a successful decade-long run, the game is set to shut down its servers permanently, However, Momonga decides to stay logged in to the game till its final minute. Things take a quick change for Momonga as after he discovers that the game has not been shut down but instead Yggdrasil has become his new reality. 


With no other option of logging out of the game, Momonga has now become a video game character in the world of Yggdrasil which consists of its usual non-player characters. 


Momonga is one of the founders of the Great Tomb of Nazarick, a dark guild that was known to be if not the most powerful of all in the Yggdrasil. With the complete change of reality, Momonga sets out to learn about his new world and eventually rule over it.


One of the great things about Overlord is the growth of the main character himself. Even though Momonga isn’t as smart as all his loyal followers perceive, his power of being the greatest wizard is no joke.


As the ruler of The Great Tomb of Nazarick, in the virtual world Momonga calls himself Ainz Ooal Gown, he appears as a Skeleton lacking skin or flesh.
At the beginning of the series, we were shown Momonga as a young man, innocent and truly dedicated his time to the game, however since being turned into the video character, his online character slowly begins to take a hold of him and he starts to embody the very personification of an Overlord.


The two personalities of both Momonga and Ainz Ooal Gown are constantly at each other’s throats, firstly because Momonga represents his human side, which is innocent whilst Ainz Ooal Gown represents the master of The Great Tomb of Nazarick in which anyone and everything should praise his overwhelming strength. 


Unlike its other Isekai predecessors, Overlord didn’t need its main character to die in the real world before being teleported to a new world.


Will Ainz Ooal of Gown conquer the world as planned or will something or someone be able to stop the powerful wizard in his tracks? Season 4 has been confirmed with a new movie as well, no release date has been confirmed as of yet though.
