Over two years later, fan-favorite anime series “Overlord” is finally making a comeback in season 4, along with a new original movie! “Overlord” is a Japanese anime television series, adapted from the light novel series of the same name by Maruyama Hisakane, illustrated by SoBin. The series is produced by Madhouse, directed by Naoyuki Ito, written by Sugawara Yukie, and composed by Katayama Shuji.
Much like the nature of adapted novels or manga, anime fans are used to long breaks between seasons, but after a period of time, they begin to worry that it might be canceled. More than two years have passed since the third season of the dark fantasy anime “Overlord” ended, and fans finally know what lies in the future!
This anime series is unique and involves virtual games. Set in 2138, the online games control the world. The online game fell asleep and the player refused to disconnect. He got caught up in the game and became the Momonga, a powerful wizard. Momonga began to control the new world of the novel with an iron fist, killing all who opposed him. Ever since all three seasons came out, fans have been wondering about the sequel.
The anime tells a story that takes place in an era in the future, and a character is involved in suspended play. Last season ended in a cliffhanger, leaving many issues unsolved, making plenty of room for exploration in the upcoming season, so fans felt desperate and eagerly awaiting season four.
