A Big Fat Nothing Burger




The 12th volume, where justice is confounded. Featuring the attack of the heinous Demon Emperor, Jaldabaoth.

The Holy Kingdom, which takes great pride in its long peace and which is defended by a great wall, is assaulted by an allied army of demihumans.

The supreme commander of the allied forces is the Demon Emperor Jaldabaoth.

The Holy Kingdom faces destruction at the hands of the cruel and merciless Demon Emperor.

The liberating army that seeks to aid the suffering citizens requests aid from the Sorcerous Kingdom, a nation of the undead that are the mortal enemy of the Holy Kingdom

Led by the Sorcerer King Ainz Ooal Gown, the Holy Kingdom sets out to destroy the Demon Emperor Jaldabaoth.


Amazon finally put up a date for v12's release: September 30th.

However, the answer to "is v12 out yet?" is and will always be "When it's done."

(Special thanks to MPT for proofing the translation of the blurb)

    1. Don't compare Ainz sama to that moron in chief. It's a blasphemy.

    2. The author (or the translater) have made several trump puns (god emporor etc) make great again, the wall joke etc.

      he even made a score card with stats for trump, did you not notice?

    3. Trump is not bad president , i think he better Obama or Hillary . why it wrong when leader want his country rise in power ?

    4. Well with this inner battle for power between the political factions of the USA, I doubt either of them will have the ability to focus on actually improving the quality of the life of the people of US, not to mention external affairs. Too bad there's no poor nervous lucky Overlord around to resolve whatever and lead humanity to conquering the galaxy.

      Delete
    5. do you mean we need Emperor like in warhammer 40k ?

      Delete
    6. Hmmm... Not a bad President? Guess it depends on the metric you use.
      Not blowing up the world yet? A+.
      Not being a clownish buffoon that redefines the term "Ugly American"? F-.
      Being an odd shade of orange? A+.

      So, sure, I'll grant that Trump is actually pretty good at owning his unnatural shade of orange and having his keepers wrestling him to the ground whenever he gets in the mood to nuke Iceland cause they laughed at his hair.

    7. xD as an european im happy with every preseden of the us... and i hope they stop going into war OR.... they do it in one go and nuke the hell out of the enemy so we have "peace" and the UN-units dont have to run around forever and "play" catch the terrorists

      Delete
    8. Yes I shouldn't have lashed out this political nonsense. I apologize. Still I think Ainz is
      a much better ruler since he is just, loyal, have a sense of moral, tries his best to act like a representative his faction, diligent, brave et cetera et cetera.

      p.s I am actually a moderate 'No Trump' republican and no i've never liked president obama or hilary either. But ya i think Uncle Trump is the worst president in the history of United States.

      Delete
    9. Trump is the first president without dignity or charisma.

      Somehow all our advances in communication and information technology have made the voting public more ignorant.


      Democracy only works if the voters vote in their best interests. Instead we vote for whoever spouts the best rhetoric and spends most on media campaigning.

      Delete
    10. Why would you even talk about something so unrelated to overlord ?

      Delete
    11. Trump is a fcking terrorist! And now he's trying send over 4000 troops to afghasnistan to loot and kill the citizen of the country which is totally innocent. Using the word of peace to massacre innocent human is only the way to fabricate the cruelty that they did. And of course the foolish one is the one who believe what this fcking one told them. Humanity is doomed with their own stupidy for not realising this. While trump just only being the puppet by the one who control the world economy, he's also sharing the blame

    1. Author-sama said that he will divide it into two volumes, 12 and 13. He said the pages were longer than expected thus he wants to divide it into two volumes.

  6. so pretty much october... its kinda disappointing; before, i would be mad but now, after waiting for so long i cooled down and Overlord is not the only novel i read anymore so its manageable(distracting myself is OP). thanks for information.

    All hail Ainz Ooal Gown!

    1. any recommendation? i m out of novel to read... kind of like my novel reading passion going down. But Overlord is a must.

      Delete
    2. try Dungeon seeker it has a manga for sneak peak

      Delete
    3. Same, my passion really cooled down. I read many good novels and I can't find a new one that can catch my attention. Any recommendations are welcomed.

      Delete
    4. u prob read it already, but if u didnt u really should - Mushoku Tensei
      it starts light(but it didnt bore me), then gets more and more dramatic
      (sometimes sad but not completely tragic), plot in my opinion is good as well

      if overlords strong point is world building, planning, OPness, gore? then mushoku has more feeling of danger(mc is op too but hes not Ainz u know), things not always go well for mc, more focus on character interactions, getting strong
      it has 24 volumes + sides

      i personally value MT as equal to OV - and i am huge overlord fan
      some more recommendations:
      mahouka(opness);
      risou no himo seikatsu(world building, mc easy to identify yourself with[im lazy], only 5,5 volumes translated yet)
      re:monster(started on manga, ended on novel, translation halted, but i liked it[we still beg for Day 339 which is crucial;_;])
      issth(chinese, a lot of material, kinda repetitive, basically no romance element doe, still liked it doe)
      the rest i read are harem series like dxd u prob not interested

      Delete
    5. Warlock of the Magus World is a good read although it is a webnovel and not a lightnovel making it far slower paced

    7. you guys should try this top class novels: Release that witch. dungeon defense. Ouroboros Record ~Circus of Oubeniel~. My death flag shows no ending. ..... same genre with overlord and same RATING BY novelupdates.. 4.7-4.8... worth the read!

      Delete
    8. well Goblin Slayer is also nice

    9. More time to learn Japanese to not wait for the TL! Mushoku Tensei is too much boobs/butt per page for me in later volumes sadly. Don't wanna read it ever again.

      Delete
    14. I didnt get to read light novel so web novel had to do.
      I also recommend TDG and The Rise of the Shield Hero.

      Delete
    15. I recommend Monster paradise, also The ramblings of a Crazy Lich.

  7. Thank you for all the translations, this is still the best LN I've ever read.

  10. September 30? I thought it was coming out somewhere in august. Oh well, I've been anticipating this for months, I can wait a bit longer. Overlord is the first LN series I read and the reason I kept reading them. And even though I've read a lot of other good stories ever since, Overlord is still my favorite. Thanks for for informing us and I'm looking forward to the new volume.

  16. Just reread the novels for a fourth time, expecting vol 12 to finally come out. Dang. I'm also waiting for the full translation and release of the dungeon seeker vol 4, but dungeon seeker is nothing compared to overlord :( For anyone looking for a LN with an extremely OP MC, and with a crap ton of volumes, I would reccomend Douluo Dalu. It doesn't have the RPG vibe that overlord has, but as you get into the book, you'll realize how insanely OP the MC is.

  24. The sad thing is how brilliant Maruyama is. She wasn't content with the cliche OP characters that we see in most Wuxia novels. She didn't like their 2D natures. She didn't like the false dichotomy of characters of absurd righteousness, or characters without a care in the world for killing. She wanted something more, and through Overlord she told us that an OP character doesn't have to be this way. With Overlord she demonstrated to us the full capacity of an OP character. Overlord's ability to fully exploit, manipulate, and manifest the maximum potential of an OP character is unprecedented. The main character doesn't have to be boring and cliche. He can deceive the entire world through sheer OPness! The world is a game in his palm! This is a sad thing. Ever since I've read Overlord, only a few OP novels have been even only mediocre. Overlord is really something else. Nothing else really delves into the kind of territory that Overlord does. I mean developing a plan of attacking a kingdom with a demon army to only save it with an undead army to garner support from its people is really something truly brilliant and unlike any other story I've ever read. So I find it almost impossible to go back to the "hero is righteous and saves everything. Glory to the hero!" kind of story that most OP novels are.

    1. It's not even correct in my eyes to call Ainz OP. Term "Over Powered" can be a broad one, but it means "Over the top" and Ainz is just "At the top". There's just no new worlder that reached the top. Still his force is within reach.

      Delete
    2. Perhaps in the game. But in the new world, he is certainly not reachable. We have caught glimpses of the world's strongest (likely descendants of players), and they are only just comparable to the Seven Sisters. Ainz would smite them in seconds. He is certainly overpowered. Have you forgotten he killed a minimum of 70,000 soldiers with one spell?

      Delete
    3. You either wasn't reading my comment, or you really like to repeat. I already said, that we haven't seen any new worlder at 100 lvl:"There's just no new worlder that reached the top". See? And I said that he's still within reach. They can gain levels you know? I bet there's even a way for humans to get to 100 in their relatively short lifetime. No one know how to do it yet, though.
      It's like saying "That machinegun is overpowered! You see him killing 70,000 soldiers with it?". But what makes you not take same weapon, instead of going to fight with sticks?

      Delete
    4. The secen sisters? You mean the six sisters right? Omega is a 100 lvl npc

      Delete
    5. @Dominik Magnus, I am not so sure about the character of Ainz as being the focus of what Maruyama is trying to achieve. I love OV, don't get me wrong, but I feel like what truly drives OV are the New World characters, and Ainz serves as a situation they have to deal with. I think OV was at its strongest when we were shown volumes 5, 6, and 7, where we truly experienced the lives of the New World. However, now that Ainz has made a public appearance in the world, I am absurdly excited about how this world will react.

      Delete
    6. ... Also, I do love some good OP fuckery, but Maruyama does a great job at spreading it out so it doesn't loose its splendor. Having it happen constantly would make it dull after all

      Delete
    7. @Rodrigo Antunes, I said something about Ainz being the focus? What's up with people these days... Volumes 8 and 9 don't have much of Ainz either, so why they're not in the list? 10 and 11 have a lot of his perspective, but not compared to first 3 volumes, where most of it was through his eyes.
      There's a lot of ways to enjoy something, I'm glad, that you're excited about New World reaction. Me too.
      And there's no OP-ness. Just onesided conflicts. These two definitions are far apart. One suggests, that there's no means to take on somebody EVER, and the other suggests, that there's no one to take challange at the PRESENT MOMENT.

    2. wow Racoon are you really sure to attack fellow fan to defend a man that is nothing like you and has never do anything for you? i do not know if it is Just sad or pitiful, and as someone that is free from your sad discussion about political parties, it is my perception that Trump is like Prince barbro, you remember him? deluded? Who see the People that support him as trash and have never and probably would never do anything for his people? the one that order to burn and hang innocent People even children for the sin of not adore him? ahh in that chapter lupusregina Was the best

    3. @luisfer071 I don't quite remember Trump ordering his subordinates to burn innocent children and people for not adoring him. I don't like Trump BUT WOULD ALL YOU IDIOTS STOP COMPARING HIM TO HITLER OR SOME OTHER BAD DICTATOR!? Call him an idiot over certain actions he takes or whatever but stop making it sound as if the man has complete control of the USA and has started making death squads to execute random innocents it just gets extremely tiresome and stupid.

Even after the next volume becomes available you still have to wait for it to reach the people who are kindly doing the translations, then wait until they start releasing them, and that will take even more time :) I'll be happy if they start releasing anything before October ends.
