    I always enjoy Overlord and this one follow the arc of Sebas Tian in the Kingdom, the las one was shocking and really makes you lose fate in humanity and in this one it’s so satisfying to see those guys getting hammered by Nasarick, the story then follows Evil eye and her adventurer friends against Entoma and I felt for both sides, Entoma is from Nazarick and she was doing something horrible by normal standars so the conflict arose, under orders they were doing something good but the very nature I always enjoy Overlord and this one follow the arc of Sebas Tian in the Kingdom, the las one was shocking and really makes you lose fate in humanity and in this one it’s so satisfying to see those guys getting hammered by Nasarick, the story then follows Evil eye and her adventurer friends against Entoma and I felt for both sides, Entoma is from Nazarick and she was doing something horrible by normal standars so the conflict arose, under orders they were doing something good but the very nature of them was conflicting, you know that the adventures are right to face her yet I felt anger just as Momon did when he found out. Then for the crescendo and final act there’s an invasion at the capital and a show of power between the black hero and this super strong demon while behind curtains there’s something bigger happening there.

    Although I like every book thus far, this one escalated it to a point where I was enraptured. I am addicted to OP characters, and this series feeds that addiction. Keep up the good work Maruyama-sama!

Note: This review will assume you are caught up on the previous Overlord novels. The Men of the Kingdom, Part II is where things start to pick up again in Overlord. After the slower pacing of Vol. 4 and Vol. 5, this book probably has more action than the two combined. From how the last book mainly followed Sebas and this is Part II, initially it seemed like that would continue. However, more of the cast is involved this time around as the story starts to circle back onto Ainz. Not fully, but it is nice to see the main character in the spotlight again after two books with him mostly in the background. The events of the previous novel are wrapped up nicely here. The little loose threads are sewn up and we get a nice conclusion for Sebas’ character development arc. It seems like all the Guardians (and those of similar status, i.e. Sebas) are getting at least one story where they feature and get to grow. This is fantastic as a lot of similar stories would make them two-dimensional and have them sit by the wayside. Partway through the story shifts from wrapping up Vol. 5 to getting the stage set for future books. This is where we start to get development for other characters. Namely we are treated to a fight featuring one of the Pleiades battle maids, Entoma. This is one of the few real fights we have had in the series and the first since Ainz fought Shalltear in Vol. 3. We also get to see Ainz fighting much more hardcore in his Momon guise than ever before. And of course, there are the many scenes featuring Demiurge. Without spoiling anything, let’s just say he is a demon in every sense of the word. While all the action was great, the change of pace was a little sudden. Since Volumes 4 & 5 (and part of this book) were on the slower side, the faster pace comes a bit out of left field. Because there are multiple fight sequences, none of them felt as detailed as they could have been. Granted these are light novels and that presents something of a problem with the page limit. But for a fantasy book (and even compared to Vol. 3) the amount of detail felt lacking during the battles. Maybe that was more an effect of the translation to English; I did spot multiple grammar errors in my copy, so the translation was not perfect. Nonetheless, things picked back up enough to make the book very enjoyable and leave readers looking forward to Vol. 7.

    I could hardly put this volume down. This light novel is a continuation from the previous books arc and handles it's mass of scenes very well. There are exciting bits of exposition dumps that finally reveal a good amount of what might be going on during this entry, but it still leaves you in the dark enough to speculate about what's to come. The volume contains a lot of engaging action sequences and I feel handles the readers interest level in them masterfully. For a book that contains a massive I could hardly put this volume down.

The volume contains a lot of engaging action sequences and I feel handles the readers interest level in them masterfully. For a book that contains a massive power gap between the MC and normal characters one would expect to get bored, but that is not the case at all. The author has intertwined the different character arcs in a way to show a great contrast as well as keep the stakes high the entire way throughout the process. In the end, I can't really fault this book for anything other than it's constant use of certain phrases, but I can't determine whether that is just something that gets through the translation process. "Fell like a puppet with it's strings cut" This is one you'll start laughing at once it's brought up for the 'nth time. This is such a minor thing, that I didn't mind it at all and it doesn't detract from the story or take you out of it too much. My final thoughts are that if you've made it this far through the series, there's no point to have this review because you'll be wanting to finish the arc, at very least. I'm only writing to let you know that this series is only getting better as time goes by and I can only hope that Maruyama keeps at his current pace. Maruyama is truly a wonder to be able to write these lengthy novels in such a short amount of time, and I'm truly thankful for his magnificent labors. I'd be lying if I said that my fingers didn't itch to pick up the next volume and start devouring it even as I write this short review.

    Sebas must own up to the snowballing mess that his involvement with Tsuare has become. But even after he and Ainz come to an agreement, it's not over---the Eight Fingers have taken the offensive.

But even after he and Ainz come to an agreement, it's not over---the Eight Fingers have taken the offensive. Now the forces of Nazarick, the Blue Roses, and the Eight Fingers are set to collide . . . If volume 5 was almost entirely setup, volume 6 is almost entirely payoff. And what a payoff! From Sebas's nervous confrontation with Ainz to a much bigger Eight Fingers raid to the conflict with Demiurge, this volume races from high point to high point. Yet it's not all action. There's plenty of humor, too, whether it's Evileye unexpectedly falling in love, Ainz stumbling across Demiurge's plots and trying desperately not to derail them, or the fight between Nabe and some of the other maids. And if you're reading between the lines, there are some intriguing things going on behind the scenes. I didn't even realize until I was reading comments on the anime episode but Pandora's Actor is actually the original "Ainz" confronting Sebas---there are a few small clues but it's never outright stated. And there are additional revelations that call earlier events into question. So this volume is loaded with so many good moments it's hard to pick a favorite. I love watching Ainz scramble not to look stupid in front of his subordinates, and the multiple mock-fights between the various members of Nazarick. Sebas is awesome ("Just a little bit stronger" indeed). This book finishes out season 2 of the anime. I would recommend reading it even if you've seen the show, as some things get more exposition here, especially all the quick scenes at the end. I rate this book Highly Recommended.

    Summary Basically this book is about a guy who gets transfered into a frictional world or a game where he is overpowered and has ~42 overpowered followers who thinks he (Momanga or something like that later he becomes Ainz) is the greatest and the best. One of my best Frictional novels I have ever read. It joins togather comedy with the seriousness and also answers about the reality of socitey.

    Wow! Yet another great volume. The writer is constantly changing the point of view from one character to the other and that's how you come to appreciate what an interesting cast Overlord has. This is probably the darkest volume so far, but based on the blurp at the end introducing the next volume, it's getting even darker. At this point I'm convinced we're going to get 25+ volumes of Overlord. There's just so much to the world and characters the author created. At a total of 550 pages (250 previou Wow!

At a total of 550 pages (250 previous volume and 300 this one), this story actually felt short. There was material here to write 1000+ pages of an intricate story and give some characters some more time to shine (here's looking at you Lakyus, but I'm thinking you're going to get some unwanted attention in the coming volumes).

    Overlord to naprawdę dobra novelka i, przy okazji, świetnie wydana. O ile tomy 1-4 dosyć ciężko mi się czytało, to 5 i 6 nadrobiły wszystko. Wydarzenia, które nie do końca przypadły mi do gustu w anime, w novelce całkowicie mnie pochłonęły. Po prostu lepiej się to czytało niż oglądało. Bohaterowie zostali lepiej przedstawieni, pacing był lepiej rozłożony, poza tym... Anime to anime. Tak samo jak w mandze, ciężko jest przedstawić wydarzenia z POV-u, którego znamy w książkach.

Naprawdę genialny fragment!

Its basically a person trasported into a video game series with an unapologetically overpowered main character. Oh. And he is an evil overlord. Schenanigans ensue. Low reading level, but its a nice fun little read and for once the official translation is better than the fan translation, probably because of the anime.

    A great demonstration as to why typical heroic narratives have the absurdly powerful mentor figure drop out of the story, while still maintaining tension and mystery throughout.

I thought the writing and atmosphere was top quality in this novel, the writing being the best yet and the atmosphere being second only to the lizardmen warriors. This novel brings about a borderline metafictional feel with how it plays with the idea of the reader's view of these abominable hellspawns that readers treat like your generic anime friendos. We love Demiurge and Ainz, but the actions they commit are worse than the Holocaust, Nanking, and the nukes all combined. HE MAKES FAMILIES WATCH AS THEIR CHILDREN ARE FORCE-FED TO OTHER FAMILIES WHOSE CHILDREN ARE BEING FORCE-FED TO THE FIRST FAMILY. HE IS HORRIFYING. I CAN NOT UNDERSTATE THIS. The novel also furthers the development of numerous plotlines and characters. This is the first book in which we are introduced to my favorite new realm character, Evileye. This tiny, sassy vampire is everything I could ever want to be added to the story. I needed the existence of a character like this. It adds yet another perspective that New Realm Characters can have of Ainz, even if she only knows Momon. I really hope that Maruyama does more with her character, she needs some love. I can't wait to find out who this Pope Neia is though, everyone in the online community makes memes about her.
