Synopsis of Overlord
The year is 2138. Yggdrasil, the famous and successful MMORPG, is about to close. Momonga, the founder of the guild, is waiting alone for the game to end. However, when the game is supposed to end, Momonga is not disconnected. He remains alone and becomes a captive of the game universe, while the non-playable characters gradually become conscious… A new world whose rules are still unknown is about to appear.
In season four, we’ll meet up with the Guardians of Nazarick’s Tomb. They will try to start their campaign for total world domination after their assault on the city of Re-Estize. Meanwhile, our protagonist Ainz Ooal Gown will face new challenges with the equally powerful neighboring emperors. The next season promises to be rich in emotions, action scenes and turnarounds in all directions. Moreover, as we can see with the official poster, Albedo should play a certain role.
It is important to point out that the next season will clearly highlight the situation of Ainz Ooal Gown. The charismatic protagonist has made the decision to found a kingdom that is benevolent to all races in the universe. This is clearly not to the liking of the other leaders of the other nations who will strongly oppose it. The new nation is likely to suffer the wrath of its neighbors …
