Overlord Episode 3: Joining the war

Well, it looks like Momonga has decided to formally enter the world that he now inhabits. I’m glad we finally get to see him testing out his abilities…his spells seem pretty broken, don’t they? But didn’t the amount of protective precautions he used for the two sisters seem a bit excessive? Anyway, I’m curious about the fact that he keeps bringing up the existence of other Yggdrasil players in this world. The synopsis for the show seemed to indicate that he was alone in this world, but I can’t help but wonder if we’ll really meet other players given the way Momonga acts.

Anyway, judging by the end of this week’s episode, I would guess that Momonga is planning on joining up with the struggling Re-Estize kingdom and entering the world of their politics. We’ll likely see him more in action next week, right? There should be more enemies closing in, after all. I’m curious whether this warrior, Gazef Stronoff, will approve of Momonga’s abilities…surely, as a soldier, he wouldn’t have a problem with Momonga’s excessive displays of force, right?

Random side note: Who else thought it was funny how much they were respecting the player with the username “Touch Me”? That was hilarious…

Overlord Episode 2: Benevolent conqueror of the world?

Are we sure Albedo didn’t actually get the “bitch” description in her personality? That aside, this week’s episode seems to mostly serve as an introduction for the other guardians serving under Momonga, showing off their personalities and whatnot. I have to say that I really find Cocytus a funny character…his behavior just makes me laugh given that he is introduced as one who is heavily interested in gaining power.

What exactly was up with that scene near the end with Mare, though? The fact that Momonga just happened to see and decided to go down and compliment him seems really random to me…is Mare supposed to be important for some reason? But that aside, the end of the episode made it look like Momonga may have to fend off some invaders next week. I’m curious to finally see him in action…he’s supposed to be overpowered, right? I’m going to be really upset if his servants say something like “oh Momonga-sama, you can’t possibly waste your time with these insects” and fight in his place.
