    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.

            Episode 3

            Leader of the pack.

            This episode is focused on Enri as she takes the role of village leader very well helping the goblins out with a big threat imminent. It took some help from Momon to do what she needed to do in the city as a misunderstanding had her nearly captured with that horn, but it's good that Ains was able to clear things up. The goblins have taken to her leadership, but then what Lupis said there at the end that it made all the more worthwhile to see the village fall, that's pretty ominous.

              Ains is such a weird character. Sometimes he's the worst villain, sometimes the nicest guy. Of course, all the nice things he's doing for Enri will be her undoing if other people in picture get their way. It's heartwarming to see her progress and ambitions thus far, though.

                Episode 4

                From the East, the Giants. From the West, the Snakes.

                Ains gets some action here and he?s kicking ass like usual, all while Aura is getting close to him. Things are building up in a big way here with the village getting their defenses up for the pending invasion. So after spending so much time with Enri and the villagers, it?s about time that Ains got involved in a big way.

                  Re: Episode 4

                  Back to Ains really being the star for what feels like the first time in a while. He's seemingly able to correct the path of potential destruction under the pretense of protecting his own interests, while in reality he's just being a softy as is often the case. Hopefully he'll get some more time with him, though, since that's weirdly not really the common practice anymore, and it can be a lot of fun.

                    Episode 5

                    Something doesn't smell right here.

                    Nphi and Enri showed quite a lot of courage there as they were able to trick the trolls into thinking that they were hiding inside the village when in truth they used a potion that was made to fool those trolls by making it smell like they were there. Nphi nearly bit the dust there when his acid arrow attack failed, but Lupis came to the rescue, and now, Nphi and Enri are part of Ains' army. Great to see things wrap up the way they did as those two sure did prove themselves.

                      Ains looks bizarre with his combination of royal adornments and armor covering all of his exposed lack-of-flesh. It probably wouldn't even be that extreme if he just wore his standard Momon armor; that headpiece is really what does it.

                        Episode 6

                        Money will be the death of them.

                        It's the start of a new arc, one that was teased at the end of the second season, and it introduces lots of characters all while reintroducing some of the major ones during Re-Estize Kingdom arc. A group of adventurers have gathered, and with money being the reason why they took this suicide quest that Momon is not exactly pleased. And then there is Arche, who is on this mission largely because she doesn't like her father's spending habits as a former noble and would rather live on her own with her sister. I'm just not getting a good feeling from this, but it would be something if Momon could bail everybody out somehow knowing full well how impossible this quest is.

                          Definitely excited to see Momon in a more active role here. Should be a fun story.

                            Episode 7

                            Death by giant hamster.

                            As expected, these adventurers just didn't realize what they got themselves into, and it turns out that Ains was pulling the strings there with his army attacking those guys and overpowering them. That giant cockroach kidnapped one of the adventurers to make him a new member of Nazarick, all while Hamsuke gets some action and shows why he's a king. Great to see that hamster back and kicking ass as he only needed his tail to show that guy that he's no match for him, and not to mention the girls being unable to help bail him out.

                              Man, this show can be fucked up. Just pure torture porn by the absolute villains that we love as our heroes, and it will likely never be answered for. Let's see if Ains shows any remorse with the main crew that he hired, or if he just demolishes them like the evil bastard that he loves to be at very specific times. At least we've been seeing a lot more of him this season, including all ranges of his character, than we did last season. This showcase of the current Nazarick guard does show off a lot of the developments of their forces from throughout the series thus far, which is always nice.
