By finally lifting the ban on information, Overlord will be animated again!
This is the 4th term.
──It’s a secret how many episodes you’ll do, but it seems that you can hear the footsteps steadily approaching from behind. ……dangerous. Ignore the pressure that the author feels, and I hope you enjoy it purely! Really bad …

The 10 volumes that I especially like are finally visualized.
I want to enjoy the excitement of reading the manuscript with a disgusting face in the anime.
I expected to have!

Comment from Naoyuki Ito (Director)
Finally, it is decided to produce the 4th period of animation and the new theater work.
What are the next goals of the Ains who founded the Magic Kingdom?
And what kind of fate awaits those who are at the mercy of them?
We are working diligently to create a video that will satisfy both original fans and those who are chasing after animation. Please stay tuned.

What is happiness?
I’m unhappy, unlucky, and even if I realize that this is hell, it may be an unexpected paradise from the perspective of others. And vice versa.
――This time, that’s the story.
Thanks to everyone, the 4th season of the anime “Overlord” & the movie version has been realized. I am happy to be able to participate! I will do my best!!
