    Season 2 Thread

    The final hour of the popular virtual reality game Yggdrasil has come. However, Momonga, a powerful wizard and master of the dark guild Ainz Ooal Gown, decides to spend his last few moments in the game as the servers begin to shut down. To his surprise, despite the clock having struck midnight, Momonga is still fully conscious as his character and, moreover, the non-player characters appear to have developed personalities of their own!

    Confronted with this abnormal situation, Momonga commands his loyal servants to help him investigate and take control of this new world, with the hopes of figuring out what has caused this development and if there may be others in the same predicament.

    Episode 1

    It's life as usual.

    It's back to daily life as everybody is worn out after the lizardmen and Re-Estize Kingdom events, and everybody sure is taking it easy seeing that there's no knowing just how tough their next adventure is going to be. Albedo sure is having trouble riding that unicorn, but of course that's a problem when she's wearing all that armor. And then Ains shows off his skeletal body in the bath, but something wrong is happening on the ladies side. Pretty nice way to get back into this show, and now the roles are reversed for the theme songs with Myth and Roid now doing the opening and OxT doing the ending.

      Re: Episode 1

      Always fun to come back to this series. It's especially nice to have only had to wait one season for this return. Lots of silly fanservice fluff, but still plenty of good stuff in there. Albedo's virginity actually affects her ability to ride a bicorn, and she finally just pounces on Ains to try to correct that. Shalltear basically admits that she's had lesbian sex. And could one of the old guildmates be here? Something is going on, and in the bath of all places.

        Episode 2

        Back to the village.

        While Ains plans his next step, he is prioritizing the sustainability of his kingdom rather than expanding it. And then it's back to Carne Village where humans and goblins are living in harmony ever since Clementine was defeated, and things are going well, and one of the goblins wants to marry Enri. But then at the end some injured kid was saved from a giant beast, and he happens to be a village chief warning everybody that fearsome monsters are on the attack. Pretty ominous way to end things as now the village is about to come under attack by the Giants of the East and Demon Snakes of the West. It's mostly lighthearted stuff, but now things are going into motion with an attack imminent.

          Re: Episode 2

          We've probably already gotten more of Ains and pals in these two episodes than in the first arc of Overlord II, but it does look like we're heading off to another perspective to better expand the world and its inhabitants, naturally tying back to the main cast as is always the case. I do appreciate the time we have gotten with the core crew, though, because they can be a lot of fun, especially when being revisited at the beginning of a new season. I don't always love the lesser characters who end up getting the spotlight, but the general progression of the story that they contribute to is usually valuable in the end.
