When the shut-down time arrives however, Momonga finds that the game hasn’t vanished. Instead it appears as if Yggdrasil has been recreated as its own reality along with its various NPCs having been brought to life while Momonga has been trapped in the form of his game avatar, leaving him unable to use the normal player functions, such as General Message, or even to log out. With no other option, Momonga sets out to learn if anyone from ‘the real world’ is also in this new world with him. Taking on the name of Ainz Ooal Gown, a message to any other players, Momonga begins exploring the world in an attempt to figure out what has happened while searching for anyone, or anything, that could help him solve this mystery while ensuring the safety of Nazarick.

This is the darkest of the Overlord season yet.
The animation took a slight dip in quality, especially with the jarring 3D CGI usage near the end of the season.
The bands for the opening and closing themes had swapped position with MYTH & ROID doing the opening and OxT doing the ending, unlike the previous seasons. The opening song being “VORACITY” and the ending song is “Silent Solitude”. Both are good songs, but not quite as good as the previous seasons. “VORACITY” give me a Halloween song vibe.
We are starting to see Ainz taking on a darker tone. The previous seasons, most of what Ainz do have some sort of logical justification. In this season for example, not only did Ainz’s guardians killed the invading workers, but they are also doing torture and human experimentation. This is borderline sadistic. Another example is Ainz sending monsters to attack the town in order to save it. The town already adores him, so that doesn’t seem productive wasting resources doing this.
The more Ainz loses his humanity, the harder it is for me to empathize with him. I still highly recommend this season for Overlord fan, but some scenes may be uncomfortable to watch. This anime contains graphic violence, suggestive themes/dialogs, and some foul languages. Intended for mature audiences.
