    1. PEPSI !?!?!? THAT HORRENDOUS TASTING THING!! WE ALL DESERVE BETTER THAN THAT. (Srsly though, pepsi?)

    3. How about some kopi-o?

    4. I'd take pepsi over coke any day (Somehow I find coke almost repulsive and nearly spit it out a few times)

    5. for some reason...i don't think that's the "cola" the OP had in mind.

      Delete
    6. you got it right last anon comment jajajjajajaj that coke wasnt mean for coke nor pepsi xDDDDDDDD

      Delete
    7. Seeing as how coke can be used to polish chrome think about what it must be doing to your intestines and other internal organs. Besides, both Coca-Cola and Pepsi taste horrible when compared to Dr. Pepper.

    2. May I ask which ln series you are thinking of doing next after Overlord? Cause this group was the one that I was talking about. http://imoutoliciouslnt.blogspot.ca/2014/08/overlord-volume-1-main.html They have another good ln that they haven't updated in like a few months that you might be interested in. The LN is called Dawnbringer: the story of the machine god. Its a time travel ln with mechas, and I figured that you might enjoy it. If you do and dont have another project lined up after this one I would say go for it. Also I love your work so far and thank you very much for translating for us.

    3. but when overlord vol 3-7 chinese version is come out will you translate them..?

      btw thank you for translating vol 1 and 2 of this awesome LN

      Delete
    4. Dawnbringer is Korean.

      With the anime and manga confirmed, Japanese to English translators might pick it up. They can translate all the volumes then.

      Asking me to 'book' overlord doesn't make sense.

      Delete
    5. book can refer to saving it for later. Like setting it aside but waiting for the new release to show up so you can translate it then. Idk where I said book.

      Delete
    6. It depends on how you use it.Ex."I'm going to book an appointment"but saying "Please book 'Overlord'."doesn't make any sense.I don't actually know what you said cause I can't find any comments about booking anything whatsoever.

      Delete
    7. When I replied, there were only two comments in this comment thread. How did you miss the guy asking me to confirm my intention to translate Overlord vol 3-7?

      Delete
    8. Umm...sorry but all I can see is "but when overlord vol 3-7 Chinese version is come out will you translate them..?
      btw thanks for translating vol 1 and 2 of this awesome LN"...

    1. Gawd and the devils below please make this anime good, man this is just good news!!!! I hope this really becomes a good anime because the new animes that have just aired or are still airing did't really live up to the hype (well, as always they usually don't) but at least Mahouka was good (as expected of Madhouse, those guys are awesome)

      Thanks a lot for the news Kail!!

    2. And hopefully this anime adaptation will cause the translator-samas in the world to pick this up, nice!!

    2. Lel dat's a bit harsh.

    3. @skythewood I dont even know what to say. When you translate it do you do it on .doc file with proper format, font, paragraph and spacing? if there then is it hard to just save as pdf/epub to upload them?

      Why do i ask you say? because i am not sure that format, font, spacing and paragraph are properly displayed on web.

      Delete
    4. Just copy and paste onto notepad.

      Why notepad you ask? Because there is proper spacing and paragraph, while format and font doesn't matter.

  21. would like to continue to translate , I know that sucks just getting demanding " leeches " , but do not have the ability to conersão the team of you has , moreover I love his work .

  28. This Novel very nice on the surface. The mc seems to be mostly different than in other mangas/novels/animes...But not if you dig deeper.
    1.) Why does such a "heartless" man care so much about his guild members? They left him. Get over it man your not a jealous ex-girlfriend but a Lich Lord....

    2.) Why doesnt he start a relationship with Albedo? Hot girl and all..every healthy guy would get her. The only reason against it is: that he is a wuss again. He changed one line of code omg, what a crime. He should be thrown in the deepest abyss....

    What would his non-existant guildmember say if he started a relationship "Plz Ainz stap, y u do dis".

    3.) He said he doesnt want to stand out and he didnt take money see Volume 2 Chapter 1 part 2. Because he doesnt want to be known by other player..Well well.. but why the hell do you spread your well known Guildname than?? very very clever guy.

    Also:
    He was the last one online...you can see if any of the guild members are online or other player. Such a high-developed futuristic game should have such an simple function, to see how many people are online.
    If there werent any online. How should they get transported to this real life world of the game. Via Santas reindeer sledge?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. the friend list like was working but i do not know about you, but i do not stare at it all the time. so guild mates likely be listed if they where around. and if he did a world search sure he know. but again who does that every min.

      1. he has feeling, jsut not extrem ones. also it how he ran the guild group rule. everyone ahd their place and he did not want to mess with their creations. now they are real he wants to protect them.

      2. he feels guilty for editing her to love him at the end fo the game.

      3. he want to find players but he also want to learn how this world works. like where are the stronger poeple so he can check them out secretly making sure they not raid his tomb or kill him.

      Delete
    2. I think you missed a lot of the points in the novel or maybe the translations aren't done very well here (I haven't read the translation for the second volume here yet) but there are clear questions to your answers that are explicitly outline in the book (maybe I'm just ahead since I read the raws already)
      1. Momonga is depicted as a loner in his alternative world and so his only attachments are to his old guild members and his servants. He shows no mercy to any human being later on other than the people from Ainz ooal gown which shows that his leftover emotions aren't really that of a human being buy seemingly cruel obsession.
      2. He has feelings and once considered dating Albedo seriously but he realized he's a skeleton and therefore does not have a lower body to reproduce. There is a line directly from the novel of Momonga saying that a platonic relationship would not last.
      3. I'll answer this later.

      Delete
    3. 1. I didn't have enough time to fully answer this but as I have already been saying, his obsessions are of twisted origins befitting his status as the supreme ruler of Ainz Ooal Gown. It's similar to how most of the servants in Ainz Ooal Gown view Momonga and 40 (I'm pretty sure AOG has 41 members including Momonga) others as divinity.
      3. I feel like this has already been answered in the premise of volume 2 but Momonga reconciles and realizes that his initial decision of declaring himself Ainz Ooal Gown was indeed a great mistake and goes by the name of Momon instead publicly. The name Ainz Ooal Gown is actually pretty aggro in itself as it is implied that even in Yggdrasil it was a guild fully compromised of undeads, hybrids and other minorities, which is why the members/servants are so keen on the role playing as evildoers, going as far as programming personality into many of their creation when Yggdrasil didn't even fully support a highly advanced AI that can act make them like real human beings (first volume states that Yggdrasil didn't even support facial expressions). He is currently in the state of investigating the affairs of the world (which is going very very slow compared to the web version especially due to the events in volume 3 as you will see) and plans to reveal the full existence of AOG later on, replacing the glory that he gains under the guise of Momon to that of AOG.

      Delete
    4. "Why doesnt he start a relationship with Albedo? Hot girl and all..every healthy guy would get her." He's an Undead skeleton. How in the hell is that healthy? Oh and the hotness doesn't really matter when you don't even have a dick..

I know he is gonna do chapter 3 part 1/2 on the 20th. and i know he put up that he said he going to ONLY do VOLUME 2. What i am curious about (since i just to like to be sure and leave nothing to chance) is if after Chapter 3 part 1/2 that comes out on the 20th will be the last he translates of this LN or is he going to finish Vol. 2? Thanks for your time C:

  46. hey all, ive started reading overlord 3 days ago. got up-to-date with it in a matter of an evening and totally hooked on it!

    hence, as somewhat of a newby here i was wondering if it would be okay to tell me the reason it says only 2 volumes? :(

    and if its unavoidable wether theres a chance somebody else will pick it up? ive just started getting the feelz for light novels. would be a heartbreak if it ended like that.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. If you are getting the feels for light novels, might I suggest you try some others along side this one? "Mushoku Tensei" and "Tate no Yuusha no Nariagari" are nice ones with somewhat similar OP(ish) Main characters + a lot more volumes are translated for them so it will keep you busy for a while. Hope it helps!

    6. I'm not sure I understand this... In the link, the guy said he could easily translate it well provided the raws (JP version from context) Next poster provides, from the looks of it, the JP raws of vol 4-5. Why does he pretend he can't find them? I'm confused... might be trolling...

      Delete
    7. Or maybe he could do the Web Novel since it's not really the same as the LN

      Delete
    8. he explicitly said he would do the web novel first, not the ln.
      basicly i dont care. cause the web novel is very much different, hell albido isnt even in it. ill just wait for he ln ch

    9. "Just so we are clear, I would like to translate the LN, not the WN"
      He said this, so... no, he meant the LN, not the WN.

    1. Some part of volume 2 are not finish yet . Recommend not to read vol 3

  73. Yep Volume 2 Chapter 4 still has a few more parts (5 in total) plus the epilogue to be released

    Kudos to the translators! Each chapter part is quite long, so weekly release is already pretty amazing!

    ReplyDelete
  74. Yeah, kudos to them all. I feel this LN is getting more grip and a lot more people are taking an interest now in reading and translating with the announcement (?) of an anime and the manga to boot.
    Can't say I enjoy the manga as much as the LN, but the more Overlord the better! Bring it on!

  75. Incase anyone haven't seen the spoilers for Volume 2, I compiled them from /a/ thread. Looking forward to when Volume 2 is finished translating though! https://docs.google.com/document/d/1eC0P1NQdsDX2LgoPLHKhM8oXOIRI4PMTZZAo9zg_7cE/edit?usp=sharing

  87. Thanks for the translations. I have simple request though, if it's not much could you write it as "Part 1 of X" instead of "Part 1". Sometimes I don't know if the chapter is finish or not. Thanks in advance.

  88. Just want to let skythewood and other translators here to know that someone (TundeVictor) is posting your translated Overlord chapters on Wattpad without any credits.

    Found out about it on wuxiaworld. Apparently complaints can only be filed by the original translators.

    1. Yes, I know, thanks for informing me.

  89. This isn't a question but I want to put a few ideas out there.
    First, because Momonga/Ainz is a skeleton it's likely that he's either immortal or he'll be able to live till his bones turn to dust with age which is why if any enemy players do live there he can out live them.
    Second, because of this I'm worried about the lifespan of the Nazarickians (I mean will the older looking members die soon or are they all like 2 years old game time?) Ainz might just end up all alone....
    Third, I hope that they clear up the fact about if Ainz can be revived via resurrection wand or respawn point.

    ReplyDelete

    1. Most of Nazarick's NPCs are non-humans who are close to immortality. Sebas is a dragon or something related to them; Shalltear is a first or second generation vampire; Demiurge, Albedo and Cocytus are some kind of demons, so they're also basically immortals, Mare and Aura are elves, they're 80 years old and are basically kids, and the other NPCs are some kind of demon or undeath, with the exception of Pandora's Actor and a few of the Battle Maids... But I don't think that they have a limited lifespan either.

      So he will be fine.
