The fact that the “Overlord” anime series and anime film is being prepared for release became known in May 2021. Season 4 is officially announced to premiere on July 5, 2022.
The plot of the anime takes place in a popular online game, with a full immersion, called Yggdrasil, which awaits oblivion. The main character is the player controlling a character named Momonga. He decides not to leave the battlefield until the server shutdown finishes the game.
Throughout the battles, the main character went through a powerful “pumping” of his character and clan, gaining tremendous strength and power. Therefore, to be in the game is what he absolutely needed.
Momonga became the head of one of the guilds playing in the virtual world for the “dark” side. Some time before the end of the game, i.e. shutting down the server, he gathered the NPC in the main hall of the guild and waited … But everything went completely wrong: the game continued, as if nothing had happened …
