Another season of Overlordis over and Madhouse went all out in the final episode. They teased us with new characters and didn’t really shed any light on the whole plot, but nevertheless, they know how to keep up excited and hungry for more.
Japanese Original Episode Title:最強最高の切り札
The royal forces along with Blue Rose, Momon,and Nabe go through the flames of Gehenna in order to beat Jaldabaothand his demons as well as rescue the citizens that have been taken in as hostages. Momon, Nabe, and Evileye easily make their way to Jaldabaoth where Nabe and Evileye fight with the Pleiades and Momon is going after Demiurge. Climb and Unglaus along with Lockmeyer try to find the warehouses where the citizens are being held at but on their way there Unglaus spots Shalltear and engages in battle with her with no much success. Demiurge is left alone with Momonas he explains to him the whole plan and then they try to fight each other while making everything look believable. Later, they reunite with the Pleiades and Evileye and they decide to take their leave looking like they were defeated. Everyone cheers for their victory, we see the ‘new members’ of the Nazarick force and probably two new characters that they will act as the new enemies of Ainz really soon.
Unglaus Vs Shalltear: Shalltear was undercover and decided to turn blonde? In any case, she looked so badass. Even though she doesn’t remember Unglaus, Unglaus is haunted by her abilities and skills so he really wants to beat her or at least slow her down. When he managed to cut her nail and she said to him, ‘You pass as a nail clipper’ and he was so happy about it I just couldn’t stop laughing at his situation. And later when he was saying to Climb and Lockmeyer how sugoi he was in his fight I felt like he was really losing it.
The trolling is out of control:In this episode, the forces of Nazarick didn’t even try to look like they were losing. Fake screams and sarcastic comments all over the place, especially the Pleiades. Momon almost called Jaldabaoth as Demiurge several times, and in general, they are just a mess. Nabe was just chilling with her maid friends behind the rock and had a laugh, and then they beat her up a bit to make everything more convincing. Seriously, this whole episode was just them trolling everyone. Entoma even makes ridiculous fighting positions in the background so she can look more menacing. This is hilarious.
Evileye is so cute:When Momon won and she run to him and hugged him, I felt some warmth inside of me seriously. Such a small potato and poor thing she doesn’t even know who she is dealing with.
Themes & Trivia
The Flames of Gehenna: Gehennais a small valley in Jerusalem. In the Hebrew Bible, Gehenna was initially where some of the kings of Judah sacrificed their children by fire, and thereafter it was deemed to be cursed. Hence why the Walls of Flames that are cast by Demiurge carry the same name.
Why was Unglaus so thrilled to cut of Shalltear’s nail? It was not super clear in the episode but the reason why he was so happy was that his objective was not to defeat her but try to prove to himself that he can cause a level of damage to the overpowered Shalltear before he dies. This, of course, is very amusing to Shalltear since her nails are just natural weapons that can easily be healed with magic. If you wish to know why Shalltear didn’t follow Unglaus and the rest to finish them off there is an interesting theory that you can read here, but there are minor spoilers involved so be prepared.
I didn’t expect to see the fat Prince into battle, neither the King himself. It goes to show that everything that has to do with royalty is just politics and bullshit because if you think about all the plots that they are scheming within the royal walls and what they portray outside are so different. In general, I really enjoyed the episode although I think it was a bit rushed and they could have shown, for example, fewer things on the lizardmen arc and add more details to this one, which would be more interesting for the fans.
Momon the Adventurer will carry on
Was that Takahiro Sakurai voicing the guy (apparently his name is Jircniv) at the end? Oh boy, I can’t wait to see what it will follow in the next season of Ovelordbecause if you don’t already know there will be a third season airing in July 2018. Get ready for more badass-ery and Go Cry, Go!
