The Boning Commences


The baidu people have it and they will start translation once they get sauce. In the meantime, they put up some pictures, which I DLed. I've also TLed the character sheets and blurb for the next volume, but please take them with a pinch of salt.







"Who is your god?"




“The puppets arrive, the pitiful things, I came this day to cut their strings!”




Chapter 1: The Demon Emperor Jaldabaoth




This guy is apparently the king of the demihumans. Name of Buser (to be elaborated on later).
Or, given the text beside it, it could be 3rd form Demi...




Chapter 2: Seeking Aid
(note the xbox hueg statue of Ainz)




Blue Rose in formal wear; Lakyus looking very fine indeed.




Chapter 3: Beginning the Counterattack
(“I have already altered the deal. Pray I do not alter it any further.”)




"What do you mean Season 2 is going to focus on Lizards and Climb!?"




“Nastya”.


Neia Baraja, Criminal Eyes
Vocation: Squire in the Holy Kingdom Liberation Army
Residence: Prime estate in Hoburns
Class Levels:
Servant Lv ?
Archer Lv ?
Birthday: 1st day of the Upper Wind Month
Interests: Cleaning her own room and other hard work that can be done alone.

As a girl with a criminal's eyes, she tends to leave a bad first impression on others, hence she has had very few friends since childhood (almost none). For that reason, she's bad at building good interpersonal relationships, which has led to her developing a personality that favors doing everything by herself. Her bow skills lend themselves very well to the bandit's  lifestyle, so it is something of a mystery why she aims to be a Paladin. As an aside, if the right conditions are met, her Servant levels can be converted into other class levels.




Not a Valkyrie (male) after all.


Remedios Custodio, Strongest Paladin of the Holy Kingdom
Vocation: Leader of the Holy Kingdom Liberation Army
Residence: Prime estate in Hoburns (her parents' home)
Class Levels:
Paladin (genius) Lv ?
Holy Knight Lv ?
Evil Slayer Lv ?
Etc.
Birthday: 24th day of the Middle Fire Month
Interests: Training in general (also includes her subordinates)

The strongest paladin of the Holy Kingdom, who has reached the realm of heroes. She does not use her head much and is driven by her emotions, which causes a great deal of inconvenience for others. Frankly speaking, she would be much better suited to an assault role, but she was too good as a paladin and her skills simply could not be overlooked, and so she ended up as the army's leader. She gets by somehow thanks to the sacrifices of her two lieutenants. Incidentally, her birthday is close to that of the Holy Queen, so they ended up becoming friends.






Clearly one who was made for perpetuating the royal line.


Calca Bessarez, Holy Queen of Purity
Vocation: Queen of the Holy Kingdom
Residence: Royal Palace of Hoburns
Class Levels:
Cleric Lv ?
High Priestess Lv ?
Holy Queen Lv ?
Etc.
Birthday: 26th day of the Middle Fire Month
Interests: Beauty treatments in general (she's quick to call it a hobby)

She strongly feels the desire to get hitched and it deeply frustrates her inside. In order to maintain her appearance - keep her skin looking young - she has developed new divine spells for skin care. She uses herself as a guinea pig and has thus accumulated much knowledge in that field, which makes her the most skilled beautician in the human kingdoms. However, she has never publicly announced it, so nobody knows about it. "I'm not going to be selfish. I just want a husband who loves me with no strings attached!" she said.




With a title like Grand King of Destruction you just know he's a badass.


Buser (pronounced bazahhh)
Grand King of Destruction
Vocation: King of the Demihumans
Residence: Abelion Hills
Class Levels:
Bafolk Lord (racial) Lv ? (TL note: I’m pretty sure Bafolk is a play on Baa-folk, or sheep beastmen)
Weapon Master Lv ?
Technical Master Lv ?
Etc.
Birthday: Ten Horns of Gold
Interests: Collecting broken weapons

A demihuman king who specializes in weapon destruction. He uses skilful sword techniques to break his opponents’ claws, fangs, horns and so on, hunting the biggest prey at the head of his troops. For that reason, all the participants in his hunts have returned unharmed, and he commands great respect as an absolute ruler. He has united many tribes and has complete dominion over the Bafolk of the Abelion Hill region. He has four wives and seven children.




Amanomahitotsu, the Gourmet Blacksmith.


One of the Original Nine.
A fellow fan of the transforming hero genre along with Touch Me.
When they had few members and everyone had to fight, he neglected the development of his blacksmith skills.
After taking control of Nazarick, he rebuilt himself into the ultimate crafter.
The NPC Chief Blacksmith was designed as his apprentice and assigned to do blacksmith work.
He was often seen consuming food with buffing effects.




Next: the DEATH of Ainz. Pay close attention to the final battle of the Demon Emperor Jaldabaoth vs. the Sorcerer King Ainz. Danger closes in on the undead king in Volume 13.

The schedule's gone so crazy that I suggested to the other authors that we not make any further announcements. If you don't hear from me in future, that means Maruyama's idea won!
- Maruyama Kugane

Overlord 13: Paladin of the Holy Kingdom (2nd part).

Scheduled for release this winter.

Also, Mr. Shy finally finished subbing the PPP specials. I’m putting in the torrent on the PPP page, but he’ll only be seeding it for a couple of days, so grab it fast!

    3. If they were real sheep, it would be a troll on the part of maruyama-sensei, since we all thought they were another species: D

    4. It was mentioned they were bipedal when they were first introduced.

    5. I am pretty sure its the humans kidnapped from the kingdom demiurge doesn't really have a high opinion on humans and since they can be healed they can just harvest the skin forever, plus he can get bones for his sculptures

      Delete
  2. do we have any bland spoilers for this Volume so far?

    like what is the relationship with this Buser king with Demiurge

    I was thinking Volume was gonna be more like demons pillaging the Holy Kingdom countryside rather than introduction of more demihumans

    it sounds like the plot now could be this "encroachment" of demihumans into Holy Kingdom lands is simply Demiurge's fault because of these "sheep" farms he has created

    (where the peoples being harvested are Buser's people)

    and these sheep people had to flee Demiurge and that is why the Holy Kingdom is in the position they are in now with an advancing army of demihumans


    we need to know more!!!!

    1. pretty sure it's gonna be like this. Demiurge and his demihuman servants invade Holy Kingdom and beat the crap outta armored dimwits like Remedios Custodio. When all hope is lost, Ainz's army of light swoops in kick Demiurge(Jaldabaoth)'s ass and turn Holy Kingdom into a protecterate under Ainz's protection. Or Holy kingdom may directly swear fealty to Ainz in return of keeping demihumans at bay.

    4. When Demiurge called his scroll material source "two legged sheep," it seemed pretty well telegraphed in context that meant human humans - clear to everyone but Ainz, anyway. If it turns out his scroll source was sheepy demi-humans, I have to wonder if Maruyama sensei got a bit of editorial pushback on that distinction since it kinda makes Demiurge a bit less toyetic if he's actually a Mengele-esq monster instead of a cute and cuddly, albeit kinda sadistic, monster.

      Delete
    5. Nah Demiurge is still a liability to Ainz. You've all seen how casually cruel and evil that guy is. He is smart and extremely loyal but how should i say it? too independent maybe? As for bipedal sheep he was referring to, I was pretty sure they are kidnapped human villagers. Well we'll see once we start reading the Volume 12 translation.

  9. Thanks you Nigel \oooooo
    Can't wait to read more \o

    Looks like one more year to vol 13 then?

  10. So that lady we saw in the cover is merely a grunt named Neia Baraja huh? She isn't even a valkyrie.

    Volume 12 is finally here. I can hardly wait.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. i think she is central to the story , given that her very minor and low rank character (a squire) shown on front cover.. she might be the central character in this story , kinda like luke skywalker-ish low rank newb thrusted into stardom by the war and alliance with Ainz..

      Delete
    2. good job deducing that, buntalanlucu. that baraja is a very likable character.

  16. I don't think that's Buser, I reckon it's either demon or one of Demiurge's demon forms.

    1. I believe that's the Evil Lord Wrath. Look up a picture of him and you will see the resemblance.

      Delete
    2. Just checked the heads look a bit different, but the flaming wings and body do look very similar. I hope this means the evil lords will play a big part in this rather than in the background.

      Delete
    3. Maruyama told in his blog there is 2 demons acting as Jaldabaoth, Mr A and Mr B. if you know who Mr B is then you must have spent alot of money on the overlord franchise. so yeah i think it's Wrath no need for Demiurge to reveal his true form on a mock battle + the blue rose also got fake information of Demiurge's true form from the paladins because of it

      Delete
  17. I wonder if blue rose goes to Anz and talk I'm looking forward to it.

  18. HYPEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

  19. Ainz has 2 grand statues at the front gate and he's looking like a Holy Overlord in the white dress.

    1. He looks more like a dead king with mad people around still rambling that their king is immortal. This reminds me of King Leoric from the Diablo series.

    2. if E-Rantel did build two of Ainz-sama's statues to act as city gates,

      I believe the floor guardian would have obliterated the city

      what a blasphemy!

  20. I wonder what blue rose is doing at E-Rantel? There just going to get themselves killed.

    1. Ainz detests killing rare talented people. He may kill Gagaran, Tina and Tia. But I doubt he will hurt Aindra. If Evileye is still useful he may let her be as well.

      Delete
    2. if i recall , Ainz promised to deliver Evileye to Entoma to be tortured and killed , in the future

      Delete
    3. If she isn't useful anymore. Ya she will be disposed of immediately.

      Delete
    4. would be the funniest episode when ainz decided to give evileye to entoma.. maybe enticing evileye to come to momon's place , teleported her to nazarick and change to Ainz , then introduce evileye to all his maid including narberal.. evileye looked at them and despair..

  21. Do they really end volume 12 with the same teaser as they ended volume 11 with? D:
    Did they end up with a longer than intended book again and simply split it in two and call it two different volumes? Hopefully the wait won't be as long as it have been this time then, or I might actually die. :(

    1. Ainz would definitely put the blade works skill to use, have him stand in front of the item shredder in the treasury dumping in swords 24/7.

  26. Shouldn't Ainz be the King- no God of the Non Humans since he's on their side. Unlike the previous players who discriminated and destroyed most powerful non humans

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Sadly Undead hate ALL LIVING creatures, including non humans. That's why no one (race(s)) trusts him when he says he doesn't. He has to put them all in their place and make them realise that he is the supreme being.

      That's really the only reason why non humans would oppose Ainz.

      Delete
  27. "I'm not going to be selfish. I just want a husband who loves me with no strings attached!" she said. Ainz will make a good husband to anyone.

    ReplyDelete
  28. By the looks of it, Neia is treated poorly among her paladin colleges and that treatment becomes worse when they think she is being friendly with an undead. Hopefully she defects to Ainz because he actually treats her better.

  40. In the last part: the DEATH of Ainz.
    I think he just approved that plan by Demiurge as he knowing maybe that other players or NPC beside him is there hiding in the shadows or blending with the populous. Also to flushed out betrayers and other kingdoms secret agenda against him. Like fishing them out of the water.
    Surely this kingdoms would surely take the bait especially Slane Theocracy as seeing it as an opportunity to crush the Sorcerer Kingdom by sending their elite scriptures and also those Dragon Lords knowing their opponents from the past, a chance for them to get revenge the so-called Gods that nearly wipe them out.
    If they show their ugly face, Ainz would show them true hell and once this dirty elements out the neighboring countries would easily collapse and fall under his rule, expanding his influence and marching on a new age of prosperity under his banner.
    The true God is here!

  41. What makes Overlord very popular and great is not the plot, the another world, the magic, the power but the characters. Not the characters of the New World but the characters of Nazarick of Ainz and the NPCs.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. That may be true for most readers, but for me, it is everything that you mentioned that appeals to me in this saga, including the characters of the New World. It all melds together into a wonderful gestalt, at least in my own humble opinion.

      Of course, this has nothing to do with anybody who might disrespect my waifu, the lovely Albedo-sama. Anyone foolish enough to diss my beloved succubus will one day find me behind them with a sawed off shotgun. I use a sawed off shotgun because I am not very accurate with my aim and need that scattershot effect to make sure that I hit my target. I also use a shotgun because I simply abhor personal violence that might result in ME getting hurt. After all, I do come from a long and proud line of devout cowards!

    1. Maybe she witnessed his true power or something. Enri had no reason to be so scared. She was merely intimidated by the fact that Ainz is an undead.

    1. probably means she looks mean and scary. You know Peter Cushing(the actor who played Governor Tarkin in Star Wars series) once said "I do get terribly tired with the neighbourhood kids telling me 'My mum says she wouldn't want to meet you in a dark alley'." Well, she is probably judged based on her superficial appearance. Actual psychopaths don't tend to look mean or scary though.
