Overlord Season 4 Plot and Expectations
On July 30, 2012, thirteen volumes of Overlord were uploaded initially, and it saw significant success. The author stated that they are planning to produce a total of 20 editions. Considering season 3, we saw the Great Tomb’s return to defeat the Enge after getting loads of attacks by Capital Einzer. We also learned the absolute power of consumers was also opposed, and multiple challenges were called out. All the fans were disappointed in the ending of episode 12, season 3, which showed the most epic scene indicating Dark Youngs’ presence. We are expecting to see the Supervilleano mode of Aniz very soon.
All the seasons overlapped with 3 volumes of the novel series. Out of 14, 5 are left to be covered in the anime. It is expected that season 4 will cover volumes ten, eleven, and twelve. “The Ruler of Conspiracy,” “The Craftsman of Dwarf,” “The Paladin of the Holy Kingdom” are the given titles, respectively. Volume one follows the story of Aniz, who decides to transform his kingdom into heaven for all the species and races. This volume also talks about other rulers of other countries who constantly try to oppose Ainz.
Next, moving on to volume eleven, shows Ainz searching for the lost run magic while moving towards the Dwarf Kingdom and is being accompanied by Shalltear Bloodfallen and Aura Bella Fiora. Later, when they reach the Dwarf kingdom, they find that it is under attack by Quagoa. Facing all the threats, the Dwarf Runesmiths agrees to help Ainz with the mission of searching for lost rune magic. Lastly, the 3rd volume features the attack of the Demon Emperor.
The global pandemic and coronavirus have sure led to the delay of upcoming seasons, but we hope to hear the date announced soon. There is a chance that One Punch Man Season 3, No Game No Life Season 2, Or Overlord Season 4 is currently in production at Madhouse because currently, they finished “The Vampire dies in no time” Anime.
