Overlord: A quick look into the story and character design

December 24, 20151013Views

There have been many anime iterations of MMORPG’s in the recent years, but non have executed their tale like Kugane Maruyama and So-bin’s – OVERLORD.

The plot takes place in the year 2138 where gamers can virtually log-in to their games and be apart of the action, much like Sword Art Online. Although you never see a player log-in, it is hinted that the process is quite similar.

The setting is based in a once popular game called Yggdrasil. The MMORPG’s servers are sechduled to be shut down and the main protagonist, Momonga – Guild master and Dungeon lord, wishes to stay logged-in until the very end for nostalgic purposes. Something unexpectedly happens and the games servers remain active. At first Momonga felt nothing different but after meeting his in-game NPC’s and seeing that they have developed personalities, he quickly realizes that the game has become more real than before. The veteran player then embarks on a journey to take over the newly formatted game world in hopes to find more non-NPC players and obtain clarity.

The 13 episode-first season can be seen on Hulu.
