For new fans who haven’t watched Overlord, it is a “Another World” (also known as Isekai) anime set in the year 2138. In this time period the world of gaming is dominated by VR technology. One game named Yggdrasil, which has been up for quite a while, is shutting down. A long-time player named Momonga decides to stay logged in until the servers shut down. However; when the servers finally stop, something strange happens. Momonga is transported into another world where he seemingly takes over the character in the game he used to play. He quickly adapts to the new world and almost instantly plans to take it over.
