What an episode! This was pretty much the perfect episode to start off on and to “reset” all the tension and action that we stopped at during the ending of season 2.

The many different things that have happened during this one episode are mostly generally not that progressive in terms of overall plotline, but they all serve to further develop the many lovely characters in Overlord, especially our MC, Ainz, even further.

Furthermore, the way many things are being presented is just hilarious, and there’s definitely going to be memes about them next time.

The coolest way to declare a perverted action. We shall enter the women’s bath, FOR SCIENCE!

Next thing that has seen vast improvement is the art and animations. It seems that with each passing season, Madhouse is animating Overlord better and better. From the start, Overlord never had the same amazing animations as other series such as No Game No Life or Sora yori mo Tooi Basho, but that never stopped it from being good. And now, with the animations stepping up and actually started to look a little good for once, I have high hopes.

As for the music, it’s very surprising. I expected a great OxT opening song yet again, but instead, we were greeted with an opening song by MYTH&ROID, and OxT is doing the ending song instead. Well, not that I’m complaining, because they are both, yet again, as expected, amazing. The animations that paired up with the opening this time is probably the best we’ve seen yet, and I have to give props to Madhouse for that. Will probably be unskippable for me yet again…

The lip sync by Albedo and Shalltear was perfect! Gave me the chills…

Overall, I loved this episode, it may have been much more SOL focused compared to the action and politics heavy episodes that we ended S2 with, but it’s a welcome change of pace and entertaining as heck anyways.

Again, I recommend Overlord to basically anyone who doesn’t dislike isekai. If you haven’t seen it yet, go see it. If you have, watch this new season dammit!

 

First impressions rating: 9/10
Most impressive part: D…Did Ainz just get raped? The opening animations.

Goodness gracious! But then again, fans of the show pretty much had the same reaction when S3 was announced right after S2…Wait, that includes me. Shit.

Whoo! That was great, yet again! It seems that most of the picks in this season turned out to be good in their own right! Now, let’s see what’s next on my agenda!

OOOOOHHHH…It’s the original anime by P.A. Works, Sirius the Jaeger! I’m pumped for this! See you in 6 hours!

EDIT: …or so I would have. But of course, Netflix comes around and ruins the day~ Whoo! No decent fansubs this time round(as of time of writing) so uh…let’s wait till next time…;.;
To make up for it, I will do the next available anime instead: Happy sugar life. Yes, I skipped several because they aren’t available for viewing either…I really need to pick up Japanese.

….are you ready for the flood of First Impressions…? Because I am ready to give my all for every single one of them. Starting with Overlord II, there will be a new first impression post every 6 hours, until I am done with the 10 that have currently released their first episodes so far. This is just a little something to make up for the amount of lost time that I spent on playing games.

But of course, it is only the start.

Either way, let’s get to the real post.

Overlord II. Oh how I have longed for this day. After seeing the anime, I was completely attached to the story and even ended up reading the light novel myself. And it was really disappointing that the first season had to end the way it did, since it only served as a promotion for the light novel.
However, the wait is over. The dark ruler Momonga is back, and he is ready to rule over us again, this time with renewed energy and production. Headed by Madhouse yet again, we are bound to get one hell of an anime series this time, as the anime will no longer simply be a promotion, but be treated as another medium for the main series. I was highly looking forward to this, and my expectations were not betrayed. With a fantastic first episode that already sets the tone for the rest of the season, we are ready for more.

General statement(tl;dr): Madhouse doesn’t know the number 2? Take that!

…actual general statement: A good starting that sets the mood for the rest of the series. Continue reading “Anime first impressions: Overlord II”
