I do my best not to spoil anything but cover the general premise. The story begins with Momonga, the main character, conversing with a fellow guild member, Herohero, before the closing of the Yggdrasil game server. However after the time passes, in which the servers were supposed to close, he finds himself still within and unable to log off.
I love playing MMOs and have even “dabbled” in roleplaying. For those of you who may not know, roleplaying in video games is where one would “act” as their character and not break character. Similar to what you would see at a renaissance fair. Putting that aside now, the current release of Overlord is the second season release since 2015. It was one of those series where we, the audience, hungered for more but were unsure whether a continuation was coming. It is also agonizing that the manga series releases a chapter per month as well. Oh how painful it was waiting all these years.
This is a series that I definitely would recommend. Keep in mind that it is best that you start with season 1. Anyone jumping right into the second season will be completely lost with much of the story and connection with all the characters introduced in Ainz Ooal Gown. So get watching!
On a side note… Does anyone miss the season intro? I know I do…
