What is it?

The 2015 anime television show Overlord (Season 1).

What is it about?

This is how MyAnimeList describes this anime television show:

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.

Final Thoughts

I would not have known about this anime television show if it were not for one or two YouTubers on YouTube who briefly mentioned it in passing in one or more of their videos.

I decided to watch the first episode of season 1 to see if I wanted to watch it or not, to my surprise that episode was not bad so I told my brother GC about it, and we both watched season 1 together.

To our surprise we not only liked it, but we probably liked it better than Sword Art Online.

This show does a good job continuing to move forward with each episode instead of wasting time like some popular anime out there, though it did start slowing down at the end, but it still wasted less time than most anime that I have seen.

There are some goofy moments that I do not like in this show, but fortunately those moments are limited.

I want to watch all the seasons for this show now, and it would be amazing if someone was / were to take this approach and maybe make an anime television show for The Elder Scrolls.

The end,
