89: All Alone Ainz (Overlord)

The brothers get transported to a grim-dark fantasy epic full of magic and intrigue in Overlord, one of the best isekais to come out in the last ten years. In what was supposed to be a single season overview, this episode ends up covering the entirety of the series since Jon just couldn’t stop watching. Overlord follows the player Momonga after he is transported inside the game Yggdrasil after the game was supposed to have been shut off. Instead of a blank “screen” he is presented with NPCs that now act as their flavor text dictates and the body of his own character. Now he must discover if he is the only player in this predicament or not, whatever it takes. Also featuring: Cop Craft and Vinland Saga.
