Overlord Episode 8: Well, at least stuff is happening

And so it continues. I was a little surprised that those newbie adventurers were killed and tossed aside so easily, but I guess they weren’t exactly the most important characters in the world. Other than that, Momonga slices up some skeletons this week…pacing is still really slow. Random question, though: why bring the hamster to the fight if it’s just going to hide in a tree and watch the whole time? Does the hamster actually do anything useful?

I was hoping this week’s episode would reveal some sort of end point for this series, but given that this whole situation will likely end next week, I’m guessing that rescuing Nphirea is not going to be the final event in this series. I’m assuming the fight with Clementine is going to reveal something about this world to Momonga and he might find something to actually investigate with his time.

Overlord Episode 4: Epic facepalm

This week’s episode…well, it’s pretty similar to last week’s episode in that it’s another display of overwhelming force from Momonga. I’m assuming the point is to show how peerless he is in this new world. To put things in perspective, try to remember that he was fighting these angels with light-element spells as an undead sorcerer. Maybe that was the reason he was taking nonzero damage from that higher angel or something…

I guess this is the beginning of the plot to take over the world. While Momonga’s intentions are just to find “his people” (I’m still not convinced there are any more in this world), it seems his servants have taken a different interpretation. I’m also assuming he hears about this and thinks it’s an okay idea anyway. How is the story going to progress, though? Is Momonga just going to further assimilate into the world learning the politics and culture? Or will he actually just be finding more clues related to Yggdrasil?
