The Sacred Kingdom has enjoyed a great many years without war thanks to a colossal wall constructed after a historic tragedy. They understand best how fragile peace can be. When the terrible demon Jaldabaoth takes to the field at the head of a united army of monstrous tribes, the Sacred Kingdom's leaders know their defenses are not enough. With the very existence of the country at stake, the pious have no choice but to seek help wherever they can get it, even if it means breaking taboo and parlaying with the undead king of the Nation of Darkness!
This was definitely worth the time gonna get the next vol for sure
A spectacular example of what makes this series stand out
I want to go on record as saying I don’t normally like the all powerful isekai character format. I find it often boring and reactionary with very little room for growth outside of “discovering the power of friendship” or something like that. Overlord is different. This is not the story of a overpowered neet traveling to a fantastical world and stirring it up. This is the story of all the people living in a fantastical world when an overpowered neet shows up and starts stirring stuff up. This book in particular is one of my favorites in the series, because we as the audience can both appreciate ainz’s constant hidden awkwardness and still feel the holy paladins constant fear awe and terror. A unique take on a tired genre that I could easily recommend to any anime or fantasy fan.
