As of 3rd April the anime adaptation for the second season of OVERLORD has concluded with a couple episodes left for the Simuldub on Funimation. Not long after the Japanese broadcast it has been revealed that studio Madhouse and Kadokawa will be offering another season of OVERLORD due this Summer!
OVERLORD has so far received two anime seasons from studio Madhouse, the first aired in July 2015 and the second in January 2018. At least the first six volumes of the novel series have been adapted in the anime thus far.
Funimation describes the first season as follows:
On the night his favorite MMORPG is scheduled to be shut down, veteran player Momonga stays logged in until the clock hits zero. The screen goes dark for only a few moments before he finds himself completely immersed in the online world of Yggdrasil. Left with all of his character’s devastating powers, total dominion over his loyal NPCs, and nothing better to doMomonga decides to try his hand at taking over the world.
All the hours he’s spent grinding and dungeon crawling have certainly paid off, and as he tests his strength on local rogues and legendary beasts he comes to realize that not one opponent can stand against his might. Embracing his new identity as the fearsome mage Ainz Ooal Gown, Momonga continues his search for bigger, badder adversaries. Leaving the people of Yggdrasil to wonder who exactly is trapped with who?
Yen Press’ light novel imprint Yen On are releasing the original light novel source material in hardcover print. Funimation have the rights to the anime series for the United States, Canada, United Kingdom & Ireland with the first season already available on home video in English & Japanese audio with English subtitles.
