overlord manga

Hugin Miyama and Satoshi Oshio’s Overlord manga has been adapting the original series by Kugane Maruyama since 2014, and now its first part has come to an end. The final chapter of the first part launched in the July issue of Kadokawa’s Monthly Comp Ace magazine, which hit shelves in Japan on May 25. 

The manga adaptation of Overlord has been collected into 18 volumes as of March 25, and 17 of them are available in English via Yen Press. 

Yen Press also publishes Kugane Maruyama’s original light novel series in English and describes the first volume like so:

For twelve years, the virtual world of Yggdrasil has served as the playground and battlefield for the skeletal lord Momonga and his guild of fellow monsters, Ainz Ooal Gown. But the guild’s glory days are over, and the game is shutting down permanently. When Momonga logs in one last time just to be there when the servers go dark, something happens-and suddenly, fantasy is reality. A rogues’ gallery of fanatically devoted NPCs is ready to obey his every order, but the world Momonga now inhabits is not the one he remembers. The game may be over, but the epic tale of Ainz Ooal Gown is only beginning…

The Overlord anime adaptation recently aired its fourth season, appropriately titled Overlord IV, in July 2022, with Crunchyroll streaming the sub and dub.
