About the series

Set in 2126, the series is all about a Dive Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game or DMMORPG called YGGDRASIL, which has risen to charts of popularity because of its highly interactive interface. After ruling the market for 12 years, the game servers are about to be shut down. 

Within the game, the once strongest Ainz Ooal Gown guild continues to proclaim its identity with four members and only one Overlord character named Momonga continuing to play as the guild leader, maintaining their headquarters in The Great Tomb of Nazarick.

With the servers shut down, Ainz finds himself in an unknown world inside the game, where he plans his next plan of action i.e., to take over the new world and proclaim his existence as the new ruler of the world.

The third season divides the story into two parts:

  • One focuses on the lives of Enri and Npheria in Carne Village and their role in Ainz’s plans to become the ruler of his game world.
