Overlord – Season Two

Lord Ainz Ooal Gown is looking to expand his influence over the land of Yggdrasil. He has identified the countries and their intents, looking for their strengths and weaknesses. Haha! Their weaknesses are that they pale in significance next to Ainz Ooal Gown and his servants.

His first goal is to concur the land occupied by the Lizardmen. He has entrusted Cocytus with completing this task, although it’s not as straightforward as he may assume. The Lizardmen band the five different tribes together in an attempt to stave off Cocytus’ army of the dead.

In Re-Estize, Sebus and Solution remain undercover, researching the city and its occupants. Sebus has a chance encounter where he rescues a badly injured woman from a brothel. Under the influence of his creator, he takes her in and promises to protect her.

Season two is split into two distinct parts. The first part sees Ainz Ooal Gown testing Cocytus and learning more about the servants and possibility that they could learn new skills that wouldn’t be allowed in the game. Lord Ainz sits back and watches the action unfold, all while worrying about money.

The second half of the season was my favourite part. Sebus comes to his own and is an unstoppable character. His confidence and casual nature is amazing, especially when facing the Six Arms, the assassin faction of the criminal organisation known as Eight Fingers.

We see a lot more of the human characters from the first season and see them interact. It reminds me of One Punch Man the way that Lord Ainz and his servants are so much more powerful than anything in Yggdrasil. The fights are brutal and while often short are very entertaining. I’m glad I waited for the whole season to be released before watching because once I started, I couldn’t stop. Bring on season three.
