This series is incredibly addictive! I love the anime! It's a good story and definitely a good read for us gamers.
Thank you! I love this book!
Now, as to the story itself, I first encountered this story with SkytheWood's online translations and fell in love with the story about a leader of monsters in a virtual reality game finding himself in an alternate reality after the shutdown of the game's servers. The pacing of the story is perfect and the main character's continuing dilemma of finding himself thinking more like an evil skeletal Overlord as opposed to his former kinder self as a human is both touching and hilarious at different times. I particularly enjoyed his trying to come up with a suitably "evil" reason for doing the "good" deed of saving a nearby village as this definitely appealed to my admittedly warped and twisted sense of humor.
So I, for one, am extremely happy that this wonderful story by Maruyama Kugane is finally available in a licensed English publication and I will eagerly await each new volume that gets released in English so that I can properly support the author that up to now, I have been enjoying for free online. I only hope that the author and Yen Press will see the online translations as the FREE advertising that they were meant to be since SkytheWood dropped this series as a project as soon as the news of this series being licensed came out.
Enjoyable story looking forward to reading the second one.
The story is great on the other hand. The protagonist is interesting, particularly with his newfound inhumanity. I really enjoyed the world building and am looking forward to more.
