The story begins with Yggdrasil, a popular online game which is quietly shut down on its last day. Our protagonist Momonga decided to stay until the last moment in his beloved game and wait for the force logout. Unexpectedly, the server did not shut down and Momonga is stuck in his skeleton body and got transferred to another world. "The powerful Overlord" needs now to discover a new world and face the continuous challenges.

Having no parents, friends, or place in society, this ordinary man strives to take over the new world the game has become.

Of course a lot of things are omitted, novel is the source, manga is still really great but it is rushed, anime - it looks like there will be more things included in anime than it is in manga now. However i can say that it is epic story whatever novel, manga or anime.

Gotta say, the first chapter was good but then after waiting forever and finally getting to read the next chapters I'm kinda disappointed. Was expecting an epic tail of how this guy is trapped in a game world and becomes the villain/demon lord of the story. But so far it's nothing like that, still it's interesting enough but I wouldn't bother waiting for the releases. I would recommend waiting a year or two when this manga is at least halfway scanlated then coming back to it. As it is right now it's not really worth my time sad

I was really excited about this, I didnt think it would be possible to ruin this story. I know how to do it now. Just....Dont tell the story. Leave all character and plot development on the floor of the editing room and crap out this hacked up version that makes cliffs notes giggle at its lack of depth.

Left out a lot of details from the novel out (then again, majority of mangas based on novels does that)

Then again, the art is good and the pacing is acceptable. If you want an evil MC, read this; unlike re:monster's MC chaotic alignment- Overlord's MC is absolutely, totally evil alignment. You have been warned.

The manga is wayyyyyyy tooooo rush. There are a lot of important stuffs being omitted, which had make the world alive. The first chapter was alright since it is the prologue, but second and third are really bad.

I suggest you read the novel instead. It's more interesting and detailed. The protagonist do explain his reason for doing things instead of just doing it.

this manga feels like it was rushed and then I mean really rushed. it has taken (almost) all of the background story and the flow of the story does not make sense anymore and a great opportunity to make a good manga has been wasted! my advice is to read the novel: (the novel is amazing)

Whats there to say? 2 chapters translated and theres already 34 votes giving this manga a perfect 10. OBVIOUSLY this is a perfect manga that everyone and their mom should read. /sarcasm

Just read it yourself and form your own opinion. Score ratings for web novel-turned-mangas are always hyper inflated. I'm giving this a 1 just to piss off the fanboys.

I hate to say this typical critique but it is really true in this case. The first chapter was alright but the second was so rushed that it felt like a barrage of random elements. It is such a shame since the novel really is a great read.
