Overlord: Vampire Princess of the Lost Country - A Strange Tale of the Absolute Ruler

It's not a joke this time.





It's most likely an expansion of the Twitter side story Maru released.

EDIT: The moonrunes pointing to Ainz read "Formerly Unlucky Salaryman, but one who goes on a love-love journey for two with a cute blonde girl." So I think it's pretty much confirmed that it's an expansion of the side story.



It begins. Update schedule is as usual, I dump whatever I have at GMT +8 2300h every day.

    1. So... the side story got an expansion by the author himself? Those that means it has been canonized? Cool!

    2. Not canonized tho, just being developed as a full sidestory for EE's shipper

    3. Yes, she is Evileye. This is Evileye past altered by the arrival of Ainz.

    4. kind hard to believe that Evileye will love Ainz but not Momon, i'm mean she fall to Momon right ( sory to bad english)

    5. In this timeline there is not a Monon nor Ains, just Momonga.
      It is a "if" story: what would happen if Momonga was teleport alone and 200 year before.

  10. Waitwaitwait, so it's not even a sort of prequel but just a completely disconnected fiction made by the author?? I mean, that was to be an actual story about Evileye's past, so wtf is Squirrel (google "momonga squirrel", no need to thank me) doing on the cover?
    Butt, if it's not purely about Evileye's pup days and describes her joining the Nazarick as well, then hey, I'm all sold.

  14. So, is this really a spin-off ?

    We've been waiting a whole year, for a spin-off, what if story, that will be retconned sooner or later.

    I feel conflicted.

    Well, at least it'll be less retconned than Warhammer.

    ReplyDelete
  15. I hope it's not a spin-off; I prefer my spin-offs to come out AFTER the original story has already ended. I'd prefer if it was a prequel, but the author will do what he wants and we will still gobble it up because we love this story.

  23. Hey Nigel, please upload character sheet & illustrations in next update, Thank you

    ReplyDelete
  24. Give me back my waiting time! T_T

    Instead of continuation of main story, we get some unrelated story. This is also happen with To Aru Kagaku no Railgun which story derailed by homo-love ism of the Author to one of Antagonist turn good character, Accelerator.

    I hope this unrelated book didn't delay vol 14 release. Last translated chapter of novel vol 13 released on May 2018. And if we have to wait one more year to read vol 14, may be I'm already in death door at the release.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. "To aru" series revolve around Accelerator and Last Order, the rest is just some side stories :D

      But yea, even if I love Overlord I kinda hate Maruyama now. Not only did he postpone vol. 14 indefinitely by writing some spinoff (let's be frank, it's not "possibly" but "surely" delayed because of that), said spinoff was also delayed by a month. It better be good.

      Delete
    2. You do realize that railgun is a spin-off of index right? While not unrelated it is still a spin-off.

      Delete
  25. I agree with SupermanOnFire.

    We already waiting a long long time. At least release Vol 14 first before release this unrelated side story

    1. and the 1st chapter is not even a quarter as interesting as any chapter of main story.
      I give this one another chapter; if its not even close (in term of piqued my interest) to cyclops girls side story (which also another player encounter hydra), then I'm gonna skip this one and resume waiting for volume 14.

      Just what kind of demon entice Maruyama to do this to us, I wonder?

    2. I think when the day Overlord finally completed. Then I will be an old grandpa with all white hairs by then.

  26. Thanks for the news Nigel. Thank you for translating this next book and I hope your translation goes smoothly!

    Additionally, I am worried at the author's decision at releasing an expanded noncanon story... You would think one prefers to finish it off the series as a whole before releasing "what if's" in published form. But hey, Maru is the author, he do what he wants and we love what he writes. Just hope he had thought this through, stay healthy and live long to write a wholesome series. Best of wishes!

  45. As much as we all want vol. 14 to be published as soon as possible, at least we have this from Maruyama and TLed by Nigel-sama to help us wait for the next volume in the canon series.

    So thank you, Nigel, for TLing this for us!

    (By the way, is there anyone else besides this senile old pervert who is going to irrationally and illogically blame Nigel for the lateness of Kugane-san's release of volume 14? ~Ducks to avoid the rocks thrown at Ol' Pervy by Nigel in a fit of righteous indignation.~)

  50. Well I knew he was making this side story but it basically confirms that hes a bit burned out of writing Overlord, the main story that is.
    I can obviously be wrong about this but whenever someone starts going off on "what-if" stories its because either you're a bit bored/limited in the main plot/s you're trying to write or because you've come to a logical conclusion that you don't really agree with about a certain character or event.

    In any case, looking forward to reading this side story and for Vol 14 whenever it comes.

    Replies
    1. Not nescessarily. Maruyama did promise that he'll continue the twitter side story if Overlord could get a 3rd season. Something he probably was not expecting to happen at the time he said that, but he kept his word still.

    Apparently the mechanic of Wild Magic will explained here, and according to someone it said that turn out it wasn't a threat at all for Ainz and Guardian.

May Mother Marsha above hear our prays and give upon her the happiness and bright future that she deserve!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. In this side story apparently she did obtain happiness, marrying Satoru or at least it is how it goes based on illustrations in the afterward.
      Unfortunately in main timeline she ruined any chance of happiness by almost killing Entoma, Ainz probably forgot about it by now, but Entoma still most likely out for revenge.

      Delete
    2. Could it be that both Satorus from different timelines of our world came to the same timeline of this world? If Evileye meets Ainz, she will recognize him and call him Suzuki Satoru, and Ainz will have to prevent Entoma from killing Evileye because of the need for information, and they will have a chance to live happily together. Maybe she likes Momon because he and his voice remind her Satoru.

    1. Both are correct. The katakana reads キーノ, which is most literally transliterated as Kiino. That spelling is a little weird, so a lot of people write it Keeno instead. キー sounds like a stretched out "key" sound, while ノ is just "no".

  79. SPOILER QUESTION!!!
    What does it mean by 'Devour Soul' (spell used by Coffin Dragon Lord) being Mana inefficient?
    I thought Wild Magic use Soul of Sacrifice or the user own soul instead of MP, was Dragon Lord exception?
    Was Dragon Lord able to use MP as a price for using Wild Magic which also why they pay less than normal people?
    Or maybe this is just miss-translation? Maybe it simply said cost inefficient instead of Mana inefficient.
    Another question.
    If Evil constantly used Wild Magic does this mean, she is immune to World Item?
    Guess Ainz would have a reason to let her live instead of giving her to Entoma.

    1. Could be a Player or a Guild NPC! This is hundreds of years before canon, since Evil Eye(Keeno) was Landfall the Demon God 300 years before canon and one of the companions of the Thirteen Heroes 200 years before canon. I think this is probably over 200 years ago, which means the Demon Gods are still around, and I'm pretty sure those were Players or at least Guild NPCs.

      Delete
    2. I am being rather pessimistic with the idea of ainz and keeno meeting a player or npc. Probably because the fact that Ainz in the main storyline keep delusioning about how a player might've mind controlled shalltear. Chances are, we may or may not see another player in this side storyline other than Momonga. But, let's wait and see...

    There was nothing he could show the undead being before him that could change his mind.

    Number One then held out his hand towards Kunivela and called out, "[Grasp Hear--} Oops! Wrong spell for an undead. Sorry about that, Kuni-boy! It's been a long day. Let's try this, [Triple Maximize Magic: Lightning Fireball]"

    And Kunivela felt a nanosecond of extreme pain that felt like it lasted for hours before his body collapsed into a pile of nasty looking ashes that dispersed into nothingness due to the wind brought on by Number Two's sudden, unexpected flatulence.
