User Reviews

a complete satisfaction for anime fans. Ainz Ooal Gown for president
20 June 2017 | by shamushkhufuSee all my reviews

This is one kick ass anime with all the right ingredients to make this a tour-da-force to beat. I started watching this anime at the same time as my hero academy and hunter x hunter which are also both magnificent anime. of all the 3 I enjoyed this the most probably because it's so short and I guess it's personal opinion really but this satisfied my craving for action and magic. hunter x hunter is a class act and a very intelligent anime which the other two cannot touch in that department. but the characters in overlord are all mysterious and I can't wait to see the full potential of Ainz Ooal Gown. A fellow reviewer hit the spot when him/her said that the series was far too short. and it ended on such a high that it almost made me angry that they only made 13 episodes. I WANT MORE AND CAN'T WAIT FOR SEASON TWO, THREE, FOUR AND FIVE :)
