This week for Anime Sunday I’m covering the Anime adaptation of a favorite Light Novel series of mine. It’s Overlord Episode 01 Impressions!

I’m not going to do the plot synopsis or plot portion that I normally do as I’ve already covered Volume 01 of the Light Novels.

Art: The art is pretty good, nothing like ufotable, but it’s well done.

Music: The musical soundtrack is pretty good so far, but nothing spectacular compared to Gate or other series this season.

Voicework: I enjoy the non thought voice of Momonga quite a bit, and Albedo is just amazing. I love all her varied mood swings between murderous and fawning. However the thought voice of Momonga is kind of grating.

Overall: This is looking to be good, but we’ll see. I’ve thought series were good in the first episode, but turned out to be terrible adaptations. At least it’s not as bad as Campione!’s adaptation.
