Why Aren’t You Watching The Overlord Anime Yet?

July 9, 2015 Gentoki 0 Comments

Overlord is hands down the greatest anime to be airing in the Summer 2015 season lineup. Every one of you should consider yourselves lucky, as you now have the chance to view the epitome of what Japanese anime has to offer. The first episode is amazing and if you haven’t watched it already you might as well save yourself the trouble and watch it right now before you read this article and then have to watch it anyway because it’s THAT GOOD.

This story takes place in the world of Sword Art Online Yggdrasil, a virtual reality MMORPG.

In this show we have the 100% original plot of a player who is stuck in an MMORPG virtual reality. Note the singular use of the word: player. There’s no “IRL friends” here, and besides who needs them anyway? Losers, that’s who. Sorry, but this anime only has room for winners.


This suave character is Momonga, the main character.

We have the classic and realistic story of a MMORPG that is shutting down its servers because no one plays MMORPGs anymore. This is made perfectly clear by the above picture of the main character sitting all alone in his guild castle. But don’t be fooled. Unlike your typical angsty teenager (IF YOU DIDN’T NOTICE I AM REFERRING TO KIRITO FROM SWORD ART ONLINE), this guy plays the part of a real ruler instead of being a beta loser. That’s right, only winners get to the max level of 100.


When the only other human player left looks like that, this anime is better off without any.

So pretty much everyone in his guild stopped logging on because they chose to have an actual life rather than become a no-life NEET. Can you believe that? Who even needs losers like (pic above) anyway when you have NPCs that are superior in every way?


Yes, like a true king, he has strong as fuck NPC guardians who will be kicking ass in later episodes.

We got the whole harem right there, AND a butler. What more could you ask for?


I won’t spoil anything else, but let’s just say MC is no longer a virgin 😉

There’s a lot of good parts in the first episode that I can’t give away without spoiling it. But when MC gets stuck in the game, he finds that that the previously lifeless NPCs start acting human and things start escalating from there if you know what I mean. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)


Next step, world domination!

The MMORPG world of Yggdrasil has changed. And being the overpowered badass that he is, it’s now time for him to take over.

Now by this point you should already be watching this anime. If not you are a complete moron with zero taste and should probably just wait for the next season of Sword Art Online.


With a unique talent for psychology and human behavioral analysis, Gentoki is especially focused on the more finest aspects of Japanese anime. "Shows like Psycho-Pass and Neon Genesis Evangelion are one of the few animes that really made me think. I especially like shows that are intelligent, nihilistic and with a wicked sense of humor as they remind me of myself."
