This week for Anime Sunday I’m covering the first episode in a series’s second season. It’s my Overlord II Episode 01 Impressions!
Plot Synopsis: Having overcome Shalltear in an epic magic duel Ainz returns to being an adventurer under the disguise of Momon. Howevever on his way back to Nazerick things in the world are starting to take notice of his coming to this strange new world…
Plot: This is mostly a recap/foundation episode. The plot is okay, but not really what fans of the series are after. If you were expecting diabolical schemes and tons of chaotic neutral actions, you’re going to be disappointed.
Characters: We get a few new faces in this episode, but mostly like I said it’s a setup of upcoming events.
Art: The art is great, but that’s to be expected being animated by Madhouse.
Music: It’s good, but not absolutely amazing either.
Overall: A good start to a sequel season, whether it can capture the feel of the first season in coming episodes remains to be seen.
For those who like: Chaotic Neutral Protagonists, Non Human Protagonists, Awesome Plot, Great Artwork, Good Musical Scores.
Not for those who don’t like: Any of the above.
