The dawn of Despair
Lizard men, gathering
Army of Death
The freezing god
Those who pick up, those who are picked up
A boy's feeling
Soaring sparks of fire
Disturbance begins in the royal capital
The final Battle of the disturbance
TL;DR Disappointing. Don't watch this, read the novel. They try to do too much and as such none of it is done well. This sequel is disappointing. It has some interesting things, but it suffers from light novel syndrome. An anime is shorter than a light novel, and they try to include too much. So instead of getting a story that is gripping and entertaining, you have episodes following stories that just don't seem important because they aren't tied to the characters we care about, or they just don't finish... Also, all the story things happening last season? Yeah, nothing is answered at all. Just more questions. Looks like it is setting up to be one of those things with 100+ episodes, and ain't nobody got time for dat shit. Also, the animation is really clumsy in this one. I didn't notice in the first season because the story gripped me enough. Music works. Nothing special to see here. A couple characters get some good development. New characters turn up and get no development. Overall, it left me liking an old character more, and just despising everyone else. Overall, I'd say don't watch this if you have anything better to do. Like knitting socks for your computer desk. Read the novel thing. This feels like its just pulling bits of it at random, and doesn't feel like a story anymore. Also, dear Japan, please stop making anime out of things written by 12 year olds.
Ainz/Momon continues his "world conquest?", except this season he rarely makes an appearance and the whole season feels like world building and as cute as lizard people in love are and as interesting as Sebas gaining an ego is, I just wished that some parts would have been given less screen time and other more. Supposed real people acting chuuni as hell and while this is mostly cringy, it occasionally makes one smile. How dare they give best girl Nabe so little screen time!? Makes me sad :( One question must be asked: Where did the money go? After the success of the first season and manga/LN, one might think that Season 2 would get an even bigger budget than Season 1, but if so why did the overall quality drop? Story is all over the place and generally a mess, yet I still find myself liking most parts, especially when Ainz isn't acting like a massive a-hole. Animation is good, but not as good as the 1st season. Same-ish sound design, pretty good. More than half of the characters are full of themselves, Ainz is still a bad actor and I see no real reason why he continues to act the way he does (other than fearing the NPC's abandoning him, maybe there is some force that is forcing him without his knowledge).
Overlord is a Japanese light novel series that was written by Kugane Maruyama and illustrated by so-bin. It began serialization online in 2010, before being acquired by Enterbrain. Twelve volumes have been published since July 30, 2012. A manga adaptation by Satoshi Oushio, with art by Hugin Miyama, began serialization in Kadokawa Shoten's manga magazine Comp Ace from November 26, 2014. A 13-episode anime television series adaptation by Madhouse aired between July 7 and September 29, 2015. The second season ran from January 9 to April 3, 2018. A third season is planned for July 2018.Overlord is back. Now with 100% more lizard porn, a group of adamantine class adventurers, a band of highly-class bloodthirsty thieves controlling many people, and a yandere princess. For those who already know what Overlord is about, I must say that the new season has not changed at all. It again takes the series some episodes to start the whole thing: you will be shown, let us say, a filler that is not that entertaining to watch. More than that, it is so bad that it might make you want to drop the second season. Fear not, if you do hate the filler, just skip it. All the fun starts afterward.Overlord did become much better because of its story-line and characters. Ainz Ooal Gown yet again continues his quest on becoming top class adamantine adventurer to collect enough information for Nazarick. Many things are still unexplained, but the second season also answers many questions that have not been answered in the first season. Character wise, many new characters have been introduced starting from the Nazarck servants and ending with many anti-heroes that have their interesting backgrounds for you to find out about. But this is, of course, not the best part about characters. What you will surely appreciate is the fact that many Nazarick’s servants receive a ton of development. Indeed, I am not going to go into details, but I will say only one thing--you will love it.All in all, Overlord is still one of the most epic series about MMORPG games. The second season offers you a more detailed look at Nazarick’s servants and the enemies Ainz will have to face. I would highly recommend you start watching the anime right from the 6th episode; otherwise your opinion on Overlord might change because of it.
