Winter 2019 Anime: Official Twitter Hashtags & Pages
2018 is almost out, guys and girls, and that means that another anime year is ready to take its place.
This was probably the most disgusting and horrifying episode of Overlord so far. We were kind of expecting hell to be unleashed upon those fools but I am not going to lie, the Kyouhukou scene was some real nightmare fuel.
Japanese Original Episode Title: 蜘蛛に絡められる蝶
The Workers start exploring the ruins of the Nazarick Tomb where they discover many of its riches and are naively drawn to the underground levels. All the teams agree to move in forward except Green Leaf who suggests that he and his team stay outside to guard and try to find an alternate faster route. He then encounters the Pleiades who summon a series of undead warriors called Nazarick Old Guarders that easily manage to kill all of them. Heavy Masher and his group are chased by Elder Liches and as they try to escape, some are teleported to the room where Area Guardian, Kyouhukou resides, where they are fed to cockroaches and one other member is teleported to the torture chamber of Neuronist Painkill. Tenmu encounters Hamsuke, who is being tested for his warrior skills, and after a quick fight with him, he easily wins and cuts off his head. Foresight are teleported to the arena on the sixth floor of Nazarick, where they will be fighting Ainz himself.
Uhm, insulting the Pleiades was not a good move: The Pleiades were pretty offended when the Worker said ‘Maids in a tomb? That’s some bad taste.’ They are actually lucky that they died before the maids could get their hands on them because, well they just indirectly insulted their Gods.
The horror of Kyouhukou and Neuronist, the new waifu: Okay, after seeing these two characters, I have to say that the Supreme Beings must have been pretty fucked up in the head. I honestly can’t imagine anyone out there that is not afraid and grossed out by Kyouhukou. He can endlessly summon cockroaches that slowly eat you alive and then revive you so they can eat you again for ‘seconds’. Kill me now, please. As for Neuronist, I can imagine someone creating him just for fun, but why the hell do you have to make him so gross and creepy. I mean tentacles and very long fingers with sharp inch-long nails? What the hell is wrong with you?
Tenmu you had that coming: That piece of shit deserved that kind of death. That’s what you get, you ignorant asshole, for treating your team and the people around you like trash.
The meaning of Kyouhukou: His name, Kyouhukou (恐怖公), in Japanese literally means ‘Public fear’. He is cleverly named and his name is clearly justifying his whole existence.
The Black Capsule torture is real: Apparently, this used to be a real ancient torture method called Scaphism. Scaphism, also known as the boats, was an ancient Persian method of execution, reported in historical sources, that was designed to cause a torturous death. The word comes from the Greek ‘σκάφη’, meaning ‘anything scooped (or hollowed) out’. According to the sources, it entailed trapping the victim inside two boats, feeding and covering him with milk and honey, and allowing him to fester and be devoured by vermin. More specifically, the condemned was forced to ingest milk and honey, and more honey would be poured on the victim to attract insects, with special attention devoted to the eyes, ears, mouth, face, genitals, and anus. Happy nightmares everyone!
I can’t believe that Kyouhukou is voiced by my boy Hiroshi Kamiya. I will never forgive them for giving the same voice of Levi from Attack on Titan to that terror. NEVER!
It’s kind of funny to see Ainz being so polite and keeping his Japanese side even inside the game. I loved the scene of him returning to Nazarick and Albedo tells him ‘Welcome home’ and then he replies ‘Tadaima’ like he came back from a hard day’s work or something. I also adore seeing Ainz covering up his bullshit or his true way of thinking with really deep quotes and ideals about life and knighthood.
The four foolish humans that dared to invade the Tomb of Nazarick will be fighting Ainz and oh boy I can’t wait to see them getting their asses kicked. I am wondering what exactly Ainz is trying to get out of all this, I mean we know that they are trying to make Nazarick an actual nation and despite having the Workers act as guinea pigs for his monsters and atrocities I am very intrigued to know the overall plan.
