Get ready for the return of the great ruler of Nazarick, Ains Ooal Gown! When Overlord Season 1 ended back in September 2015, we were left feeling satisfied and yearning for more. Honestly, I hadn’t expected there to even be a second season so you can imagine both my surprise and elation when it was announced that there Season 2 of the Overlord anime series was announced to premiere sometime in 2017.
This announcement came at the end of Shikkoku no Eiyu/The Dark Hero, the second compilation film for Overlord’s first anime series on March 11, 2017. It appears that production of the second anime series has gone underway. If you have not yet seen the first season of the Overlord anime, I strongly urge you to watch it as soon as possible. Like, right this moment!
I’ll be honest, going into the anime, I didn’t have very high expectations but all of that just got completely blown out of the water after the very first episode. Its unexpectedly dark, funny, and badass moments make the anime for me. Oh, and getting to see Albedo in action again is definitely a worthy incentive as well. Here’s a little sneak preview!
Get excited! I know I am!
