    Synopsis
    The story begins with Yggdrasil, a popular online game which is quietly shut down one day; however, the protagonist Momonga decides to not log out.
    Momonga is then transformed into the image of a skeleton as "the most powerful wizard."
    The world continues to change, with non-player characters (NPCs) begining to feel emotion.
    Having no parents, friends, or place in society, this ordinary young man Momonga then strives to take over the new world the game has become.

    Awesome I didn't think they would make an anime for this so early or rather at all since there is only been 6 chapters out. It being done by Madhouse is even better.

    Have you read the LN yet?

    First episode was not anything great, but still good. The melancholic introduction to a MMO world about to be turned off for good was spot on, I could really relate to that :cry
    Then came the new world, to which the MC did not have a hard time getting used to, and there was even time for some underling introduction. Good thing he added that extra line to Albedo's character description :wink
    All in all, decent setup episode.

    The "MMO turned real" premise might be getting overused, but the main character being a caring Mr. Skeleton is something fresh. Will give this a chance.

    Really looking forward to dmmo rpg in the future.
    Spotted the lizardmen :O
    Will it go to vol 4 or is that a season 2 teaser?



    The Albedo ed song was pure <3

    I'm in the process of looking for a new guild after years in a slowly dying one so that hit my sympathies as well. And I enjoy that the lead character has such an interesting avatar and setup. I laughed at his navigating dealing with that one servant, this could be fun. :D

    Damn, that first part got to me. I often play an MMO (mostly World of Warcraft) and many times I've been part of guilds that were initially full of life; 20-30 something members logging in daily. But then after several months or years, the activity dies down and only 1-2 regulars log in.

    Anyways, Momonga seems interesting enough. I wonder what other surprises await him in this real MMO world. Would be cool if he somehow encounters his other guild members. I like it how Momonga is more of a villain rather than a hero.

    Probably something natural, like have them talk about themselves or something :laugh

    Same here,
    imo they managed to convey the MC's feelings of loss perfectly, to which a gamer can relate to :cry

    It's fine that they are adoring Momonga like a god, but he better keep up his boss act or they might just turn on him if he's too soft. They are demons after all.

    And now even his libido is gone,
    so there's not much use of assembling a harem if he cannot take advantage of it :p


    Albedo's fanatic love for the MC is still highly entertaining :rotfl

    Also, Mare is the boy in skirt, and Aura is a girl wearing pants. Better keep that in mind :amuse

    Ep 2 - nicely paced and not rushed.
    #Based Mad House

    Momonga is able to present the image of a competent leader to all of his subordinates.
    Their undying loyalty to him is an excellent aspect.

    Narberal and that dark armor :O
    Good stuff ahead.


    Lol those faces XD

    Enjoyable second episode. Looks like only the Tomb was transported from the MMO World. Nice to see that Momonga is taking precautions to defend and hide the Tomb. Judging by Mare's magic, the other guardians must be really powerful too. Momonga also expressed the desire to conquer this new world. That should be fun.

    I'm guessing that the we'll properly meet opposing factions in the next episode. Yeah, Albedo and Shalltear's faces were hilarious this episode :lmao.

    Enjoyed the 2nd episode as well as I did the premiere. Momonga is doing a pretty decent job analyzing his current situation. He's taking note of his new surroundings and those that serve him. I can't wait to see how this story continue to unfold.

    The Momonga wank from the servants is getting kind of tiresome, but it looks like Koyasu is looking to change things up. I kind of like how insane the girls are, also Cocytus is cool

    Interesting stuff so far.

    I like how a lot of the background info comes from the protagonist's nostalgic internal monologues. Even though he's been thrown into this situation, he still has a god-like role since he was around when each of the NPCs were made. It's kind of odd that his guild required all members to have jobs in the real world--I guess they don't like NEETs--yet Momonga doesn't care about going home.

    The NPCs themselves are a good source of intrigue. They didn't show any awareness of the fact that they suddenly gaining sentience and personalities, but they knew Momonga "stayed behind with them." Assuming that means they knew the server was going to be discontinued, that makes me wonder if they remember being...well, NPCs. Mare even seems to know his character description: "I'm supposed to be a boy, I think." (Apparently he can't check.)

    Anyway, this show is better than I thought it would be.

    I read a bit of the LN a while back. Art style looks more cartoonish than I imagined, but maybe it just takes getting used to.

    Frankly, I found the novel to be too slow and dry, hopefully the anime will move a little faster.
    Spoiler:
    MC spends ages analyzing shit and doubting the loyalty of his servants. Also worrying about the dangers of the new world. Which is mostly pointless because there's nothing that comes even close to his power, at least up to the part I've read. Hopefully they will be able to keep it interesting despite the totally OP MC.

    That was a nice power display Ains made in front of the villagers :awesome. And I can really appreciate his intellectual thinking, getting to know the world bit by bit, not jumping head into a world conflict.

    But, his ultimate goal is meeting up with other players of the game who might have ended up their? That's kind of small, considering his possibilities...

    How much did you read? He is just overly cautious and makes preparations for various circumstances. Ironically his paranoia is one of the few things that is keeping him alive. Also he cannot blindly trust his servants, considering what happened to Shalltear and what Demiurge and Albedo have done without his knowledge.

    Since we haven't seen Ains interact with the world outside I was wondering what side he would end up taking. It is a twisted kind of fun seeing him crushing hards and protecting villagers. :p

    Ep. 3 - The death knight was glorious :'(



    Gazef looked good, way better than the manga version.
    Ainz is losing some parts of his human psyche because of his undead class.
    9th tier spell XD
    They should stop using English to name the attacks, it's cringe worthy :(
    Albedo's armor puts bikini warriors to shame :)

    They dragged the battle a bit too far out, I had hoped they would be done with it in the first half, then instead of another asskissing the questing could have begun this week.

    Ofc, the battle was still awesome.




    That sums of this week's episode :datass

    I enjoyed the battle through and through. I must say, four episodes in and I still cant trust that Orange Suit dude. I do love his design, but he just screams 'traitor', or he might be a bit too mischievous.

    The Gazef scenes were good , this ep definitely had a bigger budget.
    There is definitely a Yggdrasil player out there cause no way the scrubs could ever get a high level item like that.

    Even with 4 ep per volume some small bits get left behind :(

    -Gazef implores Ainz to help but Ainz say he would put up resistance if he forced him.
    -The enemy attacked because Gazef didn't have the Kingdom's Five Treasures with him this time, if he did he would have beat all of them.

    -Albedo actually uses 2 skills to send that catapult attack back at the guy.


    -The 7th tier angel had a passive defense boost skill for allies and high defense itself (which makes ainz one shotting it even more impressive).
    -The angel can supposedly kill the demon god that ravaged the world 200 years ago which the 13 heroes of legend sealed away and only a few beings can currently match this angel.
    -Ainz was on guard for Seraphim level angels which would have take his and Albedo's full power to defeat.
