First for Enri best girl

Luis Wright
Luis Wright

What's the verdict on the new tl? It seems pretty good to me.

Jeremiah Torres
Jeremiah Torres

i think it reads pretty ok but im ESL so i'm not the best judge

people last thread were saying they like it a lot

Daniel King
Daniel King

I haven't been keeping track of Overlord threads since shortly after vol nine.
Is Nigel still going to be the hero that was promised, that will quench our thirst and deliver us to vol ten?

As thanks have this chair from So-bins twitter.

Josiah Carter
Josiah Carter

Yes. He said about a chapter a month or something along those lines.

Aiden Anderson
Aiden Anderson

Awesome. I have something to look forward to again.

Jackson Flores
Jackson Flores

Release date for Vol. 10 is May 30th

Some people will get it early, pics and spoilers any day now.

Robert Baker
Robert Baker

Enri will drown the world in tears and despair.

Jordan Garcia
Jordan Garcia

His art is too good
The anime is clean enough but it didn't take nearly enough away from his art style in my opinion, and was worse off for it.

Matthew Gray
Matthew Gray

going to be the hero
Yes.
So-bins twitter
What it say?

Hunter Gonzalez

Just reminding people that the new overlord volume comes out on may 30th basically

Robert Cook

Praying for Rubedo/Lastborn/ZZ art.

Evan Morgan
Evan Morgan

He only draws art of the characters if they're relevant in the story at the moment, so fat chance of any ZZ art next volume.

Carter Cruz
Carter Cruz

Saturaday hype soon?

Leo Davis
Leo Davis

There's going to be a big tournament... Why wouldn't the ST enter ZZ to try and defeat the Sorcerer King?

Nathaniel Gonzalez
Nathaniel Gonzalez

She's supposed to be their trump card, I dunno if they would show their hand that easily.

Eli Russell
Eli Russell

Well, the Sorcerer King is an existential threat to humanity and nobody knows abour ZZ. Why not give her a funny moustache (bonus if it actually exists as a relic of the Six Gods) and enter her as "Totally Not The Slaine Theocracy's Secret Weapon"?

Then she can lose to Ainz and starts hungering for his bone. Who knows, she might bring magic that allows Ainz to have kids.

Luke Rogers
Luke Rogers

I wonder if ZZ would look like this.

Leo Jackson
Leo Jackson

So who's gonna translate vol 10 when its out?

Watching it for the first time now, on ep 10 atm.
Quite enjoyable, don't even remember why I didn't pick it up last year, but surely regret it.

I'll come back here later whan I finish it.

Nathaniel Davis
Nathaniel Davis

Honestly some of the most fun I've had on Sup Forums was the real-time shitposting back when this was first airing.

Is this the best page in the manga?

Christian Jackson

2 years is too long to wait for the manga's SPLAT SPLAT

Jaxson Walker
Jaxson Walker

In two years the manga will be in volume 6 or 7 unless the author really cut a lot of scenes and rushes the manga.

Landon Green

I'd wager if there are cuts it will probably be in Volume 4 and 5.

Enri is stronk

Ryan Rogers

Valkyrie equipment always looks so fucking cool no matter the art-style

Eli Scott
Eli Scott

Is there a character who can defeat Warboss Enri?

Justin Cook
Justin Cook

Would the ST aproach Momon to make a plan to destroy AOG? I hope Ainz sends PA because of safety, it would be nice seeing the whole encounter from PA´s perspective

Dylan Fisher
Dylan Fisher

Would the ST aproach Momon to make a plan to destroy AOG?
If it goes the way of the WN, they might end up misinterpreting Ainz for the reincarnation of Surshana, who bears an uncanny resemblance to him.

Cooper Cox
Cooper Cox

What are the races of the six gods in the NW? one was a dragonoid right?

Jackson Scott
Jackson Scott

Rewatching the last three episodes, the VAs are fucking top notch, PA is hilarious.

Jose Taylor
Jose Taylor

Yeah they chose a top tier cast for the VAs.

Aiden Hernandez
Aiden Hernandez

All right, just finished it

After taking the weekend to watch this and Kamisama no Inai Nichiyoubi I gotta give it to Madhouse and their stellar sound design, it carried those shows even in their weakest parts for me.
Not to mention that I'm listening to Overlord's OP and ED no stop since yesterday.

But now I'm left wanting more, is it true that S2 in in the works for later this year?

All I remember is those Albedo's reaction images and that shitposting webm, but yeah, I bet the threads were a lot of fun then.

Anthony Parker

READ THE FUCKING NOVELS

Leo White
Leo White

Not related to the thread but whats the status of LN in nihonland? I mean if someone in japan knew I read LN would they think Im weird, or do they consider them as books? I dont read manga (except for the overlord one) but I do read quite a bit of LNs is that not seen very well in Japan?

Alexander Thomas
Alexander Thomas

I guess I will, but I took a whole 10 minutes searching for news and found some rumors of a S2 in the works.
Just want to know how hopeless it is before moving on.

Wyatt Ramirez
Wyatt Ramirez

It's just a fucking book, nobody will care.

Overlord blurs the line between novels and LNs anyway. You will be recognized as a man of patrician taste if people see you with it.

Blake Jones
Blake Jones

If you're an otaku who spends all their time watching anime, reading manga and LNs then they'll look badly at you. Other than that I think LNs are seen as a very casual book you read on the train and shit.

Adam Thompson
Adam Thompson

It's pretty hopeless, user. Any rumors you've read are bullshit.

Luis Miller
Luis Miller

ainzOoalGo are you still there?

Josiah Brooks
Josiah Brooks

A lot, but I guess her level must be around 11~14 for now.

Carter Thompson
Carter Thompson

Is Aura really only 76 years old?

Jace Sanders
Jace Sanders

76 is young for an elf, they reach adulthood around 110 or so

Jeremiah Nelson
Jeremiah Nelson

Well from the looks of things, just having rumours of season 2, is actually doing better then actually having a season 2, to help boost the popularity of Overlord.

Anthony Torres
Anthony Torres

is it true that S2 in in the works for later this year?
there is a good chance that the answer is no, but we will probably know for sure in the Afterword of Vol. 10 since the author likes to update people on stuff like that.

but really, S2 will probably not happen.

i got into the series via the anime as well and the books are superior. they leave out a lot of detail, even within the first 3 volumes Ainz noticably has a lot more depth to his character and generally there are a lot of more cut content that the anime had to do since it's basically a compact version of 3 volumes into 10 episodes.

go here to get what i think are the latest editions of the TLs.

after you're done with that you can listen to the drama cds, which is another couple of hours of content as well.

Juan Johnson
Juan Johnson

76 years old?
Incredible, right? She doesn't appear more than 60 yo.

Eli Nelson
Eli Nelson

I just want to see so-bin draw BOING BOING Aura.

Austin Turner
Austin Turner

Yes please

Henry Thomas
Henry Thomas

Well fuck, guess I still have some LN to get to then.

Apparently I finished it with a good timing though, this thread really seems to have evrything I'll need to catch up, thanks.

Also fuck yenpress, always ruining the usual place.

Benjamin Green

Boing boing.

Weirdly enough I think I prefer Albedo as a loli.

Joshua Martinez

lupu no

Joseph Ward

She deserves it for being a disappointment

Landon Rivera

Lupu is best girl and doesn't deserve to be bullied. That's Entoma's job.

Wyatt Green
Wyatt Green

Sebas' one finger pushup lifting all the Guardians and Ainz

Colton Lee
Colton Lee

Imagine Pandoras Actor gets one shot by that WCI that deletes you, and you need a special WCI to resurrect.
Albedo:Ainz sama I have bad news one of the Guardians has been killed.
Ainz: Who was killed? Who ever did it will suffer the most unimmaginable pain there is.
Albedo: It pains me to say it Ainz-sama but it was your own creation Pandoras Actor.
Ainz: ...and you say there´s no way to revive him.
Albedo: unfortunately thats right *Ainz Passive activates
Albedos mind: Ainz sams is suffering I cant watch!.
Ainz mind: whats this strange feeling? Is it freedom? happines?.

Christian Cruz

Ainz doesnt agree with you guys..

Parker Adams

Pandora's Actor is best son.

Eli Roberts
Eli Roberts

I preffer Demiurge or Mare.

Oliver Hughes
Oliver Hughes

Pandora's Actor killed the real Demiurge during the start of the series and has been impersonating him the entire time. The schemes and plots are entirely in PA's hands. Discuss.

Nolan Richardson
Nolan Richardson

When will PA take over the ST and turn it into a true haven of Ubermenschen

"There is only one true god! SIEG AINZ!"

Connor Gray
Connor Gray

Ubermenschen
What does Nazarick consider as "Ubermenschen", heteromorphic beings? Aura and Mare dont fit in there....

Robert Jenkins
Robert Jenkins

When will PA impregnate Lakyus?
When will PA beat Albedo for trying to kill Ainz's friends?

Oliver Davis
Oliver Davis

It goes
Superior Beings > NPCs created by Superior Beings > Members of Nazarick > Dirt > Everyone else

Jaxon Hill
Jaxon Hill

PA leading an army against the Kingdom whilst blasting Wagner when

Joseph Long
Joseph Long

Obviously PA and Demi will take over the ST eugenics program to breed a better variety of human being to worship Ainz. It doesn't matter if they have to mix heteromorphic blood in, humans were mongrels to begin with.

Also, Aura and Mare are handmade by the Supreme Beings, they are better than anything in the NW by default.

I look forward to Lakyus coming back from the Treasury in an eyepatch and with a bandaged arm and a blissed-out look on her face.

Everyone wonders what PA did to her and she tells them that he showed her the glories of chew nib yo.

Superior Beings
only Superior

kys my man

When he recruits the dwarves and teaches them how to make MG42s and magic Tiger tanks.

Elijah Ward
Elijah Ward

Whats the maid/buttler hierarchy?
Sebas>Lastborn>Yuri>Solution>Narberal>CZ>41 homunculus maids>Eckleya>Lupus>Entoma

Thomas Lee
Thomas Lee

Cocytus too underrated.

Xavier Peterson
Xavier Peterson

Sebas and Lastborn are both the leaders of the Pleiades.With Sebas around it's Six Star System, with Lastborn it's Seven Sister System.

Yuri is the deputy commander of the Pleiades and the rest goes in order of greek alphabet progression.

The 41 homunculus maids are under Pestonya. The manservants of Nazarick (the goat butlers and Eckleya) are under Sebas.

Something interesting; both he and his creator were instrumental in choosing Ainz's title / picking the new name for Nine's Own Goal.

Tyler Carter
Tyler Carter

its shit.

Samuel Sullivan
Samuel Sullivan

DISAPPOINTMENT

Nathaniel Gray
Nathaniel Gray

Her and Mare are my favorites, actually.

Nolan Lewis
Nolan Lewis

Lupu is best girl. Solution is a close second.

Connor Barnes
Connor Barnes

Excellent taste.

I used to think that Lupu was best pureadesu (dat hip) but she's just a selfish bitch. I can't really like that. Still, she stronk.

Solu is hot and professional, though.

Zachary Parker
Zachary Parker

I like all the Pleiades as they all have their own charm, it's just that Lupu is a delicious brown genki girl and has the best thighs. I couldn’t ask for more.

Jonathan Wilson
Jonathan Wilson

When will PA impregnate Lakyus?

He already had dopplesex with Nabe

Gabriel Lewis
Gabriel Lewis

What the rest of Nazerick's NPC would give to have their creator around, and the one that does is ignored.

Samuel Cook
Samuel Cook

Yeah, personality aside Lupu really is best.

Will Narb get formlocked if she gets pregnant?

Will PA?

Benjamin Flores
Benjamin Flores

" "The Immovable" Nazami Enec. Though he claimed he was just imitating a fighting style he'd seen before, that twin-shield stance of his". Is Shield Hero a thing in the future? Can we expect that some of the new ygg players are ch2's?

Jaxson Roberts
Jaxson Roberts

Buku uses two shields, maybe someone passed it down in the NW.

Elijah Gomez
Elijah Gomez

I don't really like Narb but the rest are cool with me. Aesthetics wise Lupu and CZ are my favorite though.

Elijah Ortiz
Elijah Ortiz

Maybe it's very common for pure-tanks in YGG I wouldn't be surprised if it was passed Dow. From the EGK who was a WC since YGG seems like it rewards defense over offensive power considering that Touchmes build was famous for his defensive prowess.

Colton Hall
Colton Hall

Maximize triple magic, yoshiyoshiyoshi!

Justin Garcia

Landon Butler
Landon Butler

TM was a Physical Attacker who used his sword and shield so skilfully he could offtank; this is unlike Yamaiko, who had naturally high toughness and could thus offtank that way.

Also, where is the part about the 8GK being a WC from? I'd like to verify it myself.

Liam Fisher
Liam Fisher

Also, where is the part about the 8GK being a WC from?
It's from the WN.

Luis Miller
Luis Miller

Ah, I figured it might be from there.

Well, shields are basically gigantic smashing weapons, maybe one of the 8GKs had a minion who did such things, and the minion passed it down. It's not unreasonable.

Jaxson Hill
Jaxson Hill

I wonder what are the requirements for Nazarick members to reveal their true forms?, Shalltear apparently only needs to come on contact with blood, Albedo seems to be when her emotional threshold is surpassed, it seems like it gives them superior physical stats but doesn't allow them to wear armor or items, which seems impractical for Albedo and Shalltear, but for Sebas who's a monk is perfect it seems, who else in Nazarick have alternate forms?

Cameron Williams
Cameron Williams

Mare is a possibility, since it's in-character for a (D&D) druid to shapeshift. It would certainly explain his monstrous strength.

Demiurge does partial shapeshifting for a lot of his Form of the Devil abilities, and apparently one of his forms is the "manliest" in Nazarick, which might imply a full transformation.

Pandora's Actor is obvious.

Leo Bell
Leo Bell

What would be Mares wild shape, a simple dire bear or would he turn into an elemental or a fucking tyrannosaurus?

Ryan Brooks
Ryan Brooks

A bear might work, actually. Notice how he likes curling up and sleeping in the cold? Kind of like hibernating for winter, IMO.

Though it would probably be some Dire Bear type.

Eli Watson

Parker Morgan
Parker Morgan

Do we have a timeline for each volume?

How long has passed since Ainz came to NW?

Daniel Baker
Daniel Baker

only for few months at most is what I gathered

Jack Phillips
Jack Phillips

Either that or Maruyama will troll us and make him an Ice Elemental or Mammoth.

Hunter Russell
Hunter Russell

Dunno. Think I'll buy one for collection.

Benjamin Mitchell
Benjamin Mitchell

"He wanted to get his hooks into Mare, that panicky little girl, and strip her bare before him. Then they would use the dirty little secrets they could dig out of her for their own aims." Is Jircniv thinking metaphorically or is Mare that pretty?

Henry White
Henry White

Jircniv is thinking lewdly at that point.

Owen Harris
Owen Harris

Mare is pretty

even the soldiers thought he was the prettiest girl

Cooper Reed
Cooper Reed

I really want Jircniv to try this just for Mare to bash him upside the head or something.

Oliver Butler
Oliver Butler

Would Ainz get buthurt if anyone tried any moves on his friends beautiful "daughter". Mare: I'm sorry for breaking your alliance Ainz-sama. Ainz: don't worry I've already sent Lupusregina to resurrect him, but you should be more welcoming to our guests next time. Mare: Is t-that so? Then s-should I let him disrobe me next time? Ainz: ...[message] Yes, Lupusregina sent him to me alive, I'll take care of him, and bring Demiurge with you.

Lucas Hall
Lucas Hall

That's awfully cheesy, but there are basically three golden rules for not activating Ainz's berserk button:
1. Don't fuck with his friends
2. Don't fuck with his kids
3. Don't fuck with anyone whom he swore to protect under his name

Not even Ainz's passive can calm him down when he's upset. Volume 7 berserk Ainz was kind of spooky. Makes you forget that there's a meek, awkward, and insecure Satoru Suzuki under all that.

Sebastian Reed
Sebastian Reed

Ainz still calls duels PVP

why tho

Jason Collins
Jason Collins

Because he still thinks of it as a game, Satan.

Brayden Carter
Brayden Carter

cause muh mmo context

honestly they've mostly dropped the mmo context altogether except for when it concerns power levels, i wish he wouldn't cheesily refer to it as pvp either.

Levi Howard
Levi Howard

Kaire is so fucked
There hasn't been a Volume yet where Ainz hasn't mentioned Shalltear's MC. You just know the second he finds out that she did it he will fuck her up.

Brandon King
Brandon King

Guess I'll never write a WN about an overworked and lonely salary man then, thanks Satan. I'll just write bad fan fiction and poor pastas.

Isaiah Morales
Isaiah Morales

Kek. Cheese isn't necessarily bad, though. It makes for fun scenarios sometimes.

Leo Gutierrez
Leo Gutierrez

Manga is in vol 4

Are we going to see lizard romance comedy soon

Thomas White
Thomas White

Kaire is actually in a near-death state, though. That Purifying Lance not only fucked her up but left a nigh-unhealable wound.

Cooper Parker
Cooper Parker

True. And she's an old fart as well.

Benjamin Thomas
Benjamin Thomas

How did you knew I was a Mennonite though? And yes cheese can be good but we only use it in the first night.

Owen Clark
Owen Clark

I want to think it hasn't been more than a year between his arrival to the NW -> conquering E-Rantel because of the mention of "yearly" war between Kingdom vs. Empire.

It does seem pretty quick though with all the events happening from helping Carne to being adventurer Momon, Celementine, killing brainwashed Shaltear, Jaldaboath, meeting Fluder, Nazarick defense from the workers, meeting Emperor Jircniv, then declare war with Kingdom.

Would be nice to know about time progression in the NW. There's a few mention about the month system there like "Lower Fire Month (9th Month), 4th, 21:51" (vol. 6 ch.8), the date/time were mentioned throughout vol.5-6 (everything happened in 3-4days) and also "One month later" (vol. 9 ch.2).

Zachary Jackson
Zachary Jackson

vol. 8 takes place in anachronic order, it's basically a side story just after defeating Shalltear but before the events of vol. 5 and 6.

Vol. 7 takes place a couple of months before vol. 9, since Ainz has been arranging for a casus belli to make Jircniv come to him.

Vol. 3 takes place the day after vol. 2.

Brayden Thomas
Brayden Thomas

Was the concept of levels outside magic tiers ever mentioned by any of NW characters?
I think they operated in strong/stronger/the strongest terms.

Hudson Fisher
Hudson Fisher

They don't have a concept of character levels. They know people get stronger after killing monsters, but they have no idea what causes it. Nor do they know what makes them strong enough to be able to solo entire armies.

Landon Roberts

Joseph Evans

i used to do that, they tend to be viruses.
or atleasst they provide backdoors for them.

doesn't seem that bad. anything that should be different from the source material?

Kayden Adams

It's largely a matter of phrasing. The fragment I've seen seems largely accurate.

Dominic Mitchell

Isn't the girl in the underwater city just a Deep One stylized as a cute girl? Just saying this because Maruyama seems to have a boner for Lovecraft.

Can Shalltear or another Guardian fuck up so bad that they get demoted?
Ainz: Shalltear from now on youll help the homunculus maids do their work.
Shalltear: b-but Ainz-sama!
Ainz: youll have to clean my room till I decide on another apropiate punishment.
Shalltear: where´s the mop?

Xavier Martinez

Yeah just for the art alone its worth buying the yenpress release...it sets itself so much apart from others and is perfect for overlord.

Buku uses two shields, maybe someone passed it down in the NW.

Most likely. I doubt from all players in yggdrasil she was the only one trying that build. Even more so when you think about that AOG was a PvP-Guild.

Character interactions, fanservice and some of world building.

Jaxson Parker
Jaxson Parker

The target is the Supreme Overlord of Death. If he's not taken out when he has no minions to fight for him, there will be no future for anyone anywhere.

Consider the use of ZZ as an assassination weapon to be part of defending the ST (and all life everywhere).

When Ainz wiped out the Kingdoms army on the Kattze Plains, didnt he raise the value of the general work force? That means that each serf in the kingdom is more valuable than ever before, was this part of Renner´s plan to raise the living conditions in the Kingdom?

In 4e, at least, there's a fighter build that can be done entirely with shield-based attacks. There's even a paragon path based on dual-wielding them.

Renner doesn't give two shits about the kingdom. She's only doing all that PR stuff to make herself look good in front of her precious dog (Climb).

I imagine she's gonna come around and make some deals with Ainz to take over the whole Kingdom. She will become best friend with Neuronist and borrow some anal thing to use on Climb and Marcus Raeven's 5 yo son, with her fat brother and Marcus Raevan watching the scene from the side.

Eli Sanders
Eli Sanders

was this part of Renner´s plan to raise the living conditions in the Kingdom?
I really doubt she could have predicted that he has magic on that scale. People don't even know that 9+ tier magic is anything other than possible, they've never seen it in action nor do they know how powerful it really is.

Plus Renner had nothing to do with the conscription of the troops anyway. That's just a regular thing that they do for every one of their wars. She doesn't really have a say in it.

Pretty much. I can only ever see her actually joining Nazarick. She'd fit right in there. She'd probably be relieved to be in a group where people can actually understand her.

Most of the reason that she likes Climb so much is simply because he listens to her and believes everything that she says, whereas everyone else in contrast had a condescending and arrogant attitude towards her. Theoretically, if she does join Nazarick, I wonder if she'll start to lose affection for Climb once she realizes that there are people like Demiurge or Albedo who not only share her psychopathic tendencies--but they can also keep up with her wits.

Justin Perry

I forget the name, but there's a feat that makes enemies you hit unable to heal until the end of next turn. In addition, spiked shields can have weapon enchantments, so you could probably get away with a standard burning enchantment if you wanted.

4e was always "Reflavor the mechanics: The edition." Combat is treated in a very abstract manner. I remember a friend of mine ran a game where this gladiator guy was a reoccurring villain, and he just pulled the stat block from some sort of griffon. So if I was your gm, and you didn't want your shield to be spikey, I seriously doubt I'd have a problem with it.

It seems like it was written by someone who knew what they were doing. It reads smoothly. I don't know how accurate the translation tiself is, but from a purely english perspective it reads easier than--in my opinion, anyway--the current Vol. 1 fan tl. No offense meant to the fan translators, of course. And it's probably a matter of opinion anyway.

You should complain to original author first. It's the same with Brain, Climb, Evileye (who was Ivileye in original printing before later edition corrected the spelling). At least Overload didn't creep in like it did originally in the web novel.

Then again it's hard to expect a hobby writer to know actual name/naming etymology from West to make it more believable. I take it as comedic value at this point. Touch Me.

Their settings are their reality now, though. It doesn't really matter how long ago they were created because they were brought to life with their settings as their context.

Most of the NPCs 'technically' don't have any experience doing any of the things that they do, really. The meidos were never even used back in Ygg, for instance. But they all act as if they had been doing their jobs like this for years.

Even that approach was immensely better than what Yen Press went for, the fan version made him stutter bit too much.

Like period after every word if I remember correctly, instead of chopping his lines into smaller parts, personal opinion only though. Editorial choices and with are always tricky parts in translation too.

Except they were shouting at each other about their "true forms", and got it half right instead of switching to method of siring your offspring half-way in the dialogue.

What I saw now with this "leak" version, I'll sit on my buy decision until we get a word on how 2nd volume is handled with issues and longer exposition like that. And that strong men and society drivel is more or less the author's most repeated thing to boot.

Would be amusing to see a BS "company" (minus, say their top 5) fight against Nazarick company of the same size but slightly higher levels (personal summons from Guardian/80+), prepared and command given to say Pleiades for them to demonstrate their learning so far.

And of course to give BS a faint ray of hope that they might and will prevail through the use of trumpcards (that Nazarick wants to pry out), before the first force of Nazarick bows out and Demiurge gets to play his "all according to plan, here's your Dis Pear meal" card.

I really want him to orchestrate another divine comedy like 6th vol, but this time one where the "opposition" isn't another stage member from Nazarick; instead an outsiders, whom unbeknownst to themselves are actors dancing to a tune straight from Punitto Moe's/Ulberts way of doing business.

This is true; Maruyama's average sentence length is 2 lines.

The guy before me did the same thing but put periods after every couple of words instead. Considering the way his VA speaks in the anime, I thought it actually made sense, though it's a bitch to produce in text.

Notable urinelord moments are Enri/Nemu and, uh, Raeven.

Since v1 is still fresh in my head, Nigun is referring to either:

Ainz nuking all 40+ Archangel Flames with one negative burst, and he doesn't think anyone could kill that many in one shot even in the BS

or

Ainz nuking Principality of Observation with 1 spell, he doesn't think anyone could do that at all (they could probably kill it with some effort, just not as casually as Ainz).

They have a shitload of obscure quotes on what the gods actually said in the church libraries, but which is not published to the general public because none of them actually know what it means.

Nicholas Thomas
Nicholas Thomas

Whitebrim refers to the frilly/lacy maid headdress french maids are supposed to have. It might actually be more accurate to change it to Whitelace; however, accuracy is not the problem, it's a guild member's name. It's like saying it's fine to change Variable Talisman into Polymorphic Papercharm or something.

Yes, it is. What is it like? I have not seen it yet.

JP is phonetics based, but most people use hiragana for normal speech and katakana to indicate foreign terms.

Having everything Cocytus says be katakana forces everyone to slow down and make sure of what they're reading, which is kind of similar to how his forceful staccato way of speaking is received by others.

Maybe they were drawn in by "a boy who loves games" or something.

Nigun couldn’t tell the lower-ranking man, but of course he knew what it was. They were too busy trying to resurrect the Catastrophe Dragonlord

Huh? Is that a mistranslation? Sky's said they were trying to prevent the resurrection, not cause it.

Whitebrim refers to the frilly/lacy maid headdress french maids are supposed to have. It might actually be more accurate to change it to Whitelace; however, accuracy is not the problem, it's a guild member's name. It's like saying it's fine to change Variable Talisman into Polymorphic Papercharm or something.

So will we get No Touch instead of Touch Me? Cause ya know sexual harassment and all that?

Hah, so this confirms that Ainz really did nuke the one who tried to spy on Nigun.

It can't possibly be them fucking up. They were paid.

Book deals are normally a flat advance to an established writer plus royalties for x number of books on contract. First timers rarely get an advance. After they get big, they can usually re-negotiate. Since Yen is 51% owned by Kadokawa and Kadokawa is the actual owner/publisher, it means they get 51% of the profit plus the license fee than Yen paid already. It's kinda of funny since Kadokawa is now basically "paying" themselves for the license. Anyway, they get the direct sales profits on top of the original license fee. Unless Yen Press had a big overhead (unlikely), Kadokawa will make a good profit margin. And thus more money to the author.

But those mistakes are incredibly blatant. Like no one who knows the source material could ever gloss over it, literally impossible. Can you imagine if some light novel had this MC playing an MMO and his username was Azzazzin and then the fucking localization changes it to Assassin? That's pretty much the same level as spell check / word suggestion on your phone. I can kinda get the Rabbit one, cause it's a foreshadowing but the user name one should be obvious to the person translating it unless said translator doesn't even read more than one sentence at a time before swapping to another light novel.

Surprisingly they can act somewhat calm, composed and respectfully and not sexually attack him even if they want to do so. They would only do that if Ainz trigger their flags too hard like how he did with Albedo in volume 8, so as long as he doesn't slip a “I love you” he's fine.
Jircninv would only think that it would be easier to kill or persuade a kid, plus everyone would just underestimate Ainz which would led to really funny scenes of a shota stomping on thousands of adults like its nothing.

Charles Young
Charles Young

Jircniv's biggest problem is his arrogance. This is lampshaded by Demiurge who, while conceding that he is pretty smart, says he is easier to control simply by the fact that he's incredibly arrogant.

He probably truly believes that he can outmaneuver Nazarick simply by using his wits and manipulation. To him, Mare, even though it appears that he is quite strong, is a shy kid whom Jircniv thinks he may be able to use. From his initial impressions of Nazarick and Ainz, he also thinks that Ainz is a ruler who is tyrannical and doesn't treat his subjects well, which probably just reinforces his own thoughts towards manipulating his subordinates. He doesn't really understand the NPCs loyalty, he can't comprehend it. I think this suits his character because he's been the kind of person who has always bought loyalty, whether it be through political maneuverings or money. Hell, Leinas is only one of his knights because of the money. She even says upfront that she'll abandon them if her own life is in peril.

Isaac Reed

It's feels a bit weird to know that you're taller than Ainz and all the guardians besides Cocytus. Ainz and Sebas are both below 180cm but in the anime they look way taller.

Asher Anderson

Gabriel Sanchez

Jircniv has noble intentions, but he was brought up in the brutal world of Imperial politics and expects everyone to act that way. Remember that he gained power by seizing control of the knights and murdering all the nobles who could oppose him.

Levi Rodriguez
Levi Rodriguez

"One can compensate for a lack of intellect with hard work or excellent subordinates" straight out of Jircniv´s mind, Jircnivs worst blunder as you say is that he probably doesnt have any one he can really trust, that disregard for trustee aides is what will cost him, since Jir only values those who are proficient in some way, while Ainz values and cares deeply for all the NPCs no matter how feeble or dumb or how badly they mess up, if this was a traditional story Ainz is showing the fundamental values of a hero while Jirc exemplifies the coockiecutter evil Lord.

Andrew Young

Levi Rodriguez

Sebas is described as a caucasian and most NPCs don't even look asian, only Yuri, Narberal and Entoma and Demiurge who was described as having asian features.

Gabriel Diaz
Gabriel Diaz

I always thought that was a reference to how Ainz basically hands off the management of Nazarick to Albedo so he doesn't fuck up Nazarick with his lack of management experience. Sometimes the best thing you can do is let an expert take the wheel.

I also think that Jircniv tries to cultivate loyalty in his people (he promotes based on ability) but he views Ainz as the backwards evil overlord who can't do that. It's part of his arrogance.

Charles Morgan
Charles Morgan

yeah, but it's a fairly normal thing for the Japanese to project their features onto characters which are most certainly not asian. happens a lot in manga and anime.

you'll have this blonde hair/blue eyes girl with yellow-hued skin (albeit with a low saturation value, so it still kind of looks white) and slanted eyes.

Elijah Campbell

Ridiculous, but nowhere near as ridiculous as changing user names. If we're to compare them on a scale, then the amount of fail required to change a character's name which originates from game tag may as well warrant changing Ainz to Einstein just because Sup Forums spellcheck doesn't recognize Ainz.

At least with Rabbit, I can just blame the translator for not paying attention and understanding the blatant implication since it's just their 9-5 job and the person probably doesn't even give a shit about the story.

Jonathan Nelson
Jonathan Nelson

That's the thing, though. Shalltear is a vampire. Lampreys are clear riffs on being a vampire. Cute bunnies are not (not even the Killer Rabbit).

Considering they actually managed to get the whole gorilla bit for Albedo in, it makes no sense that they would suddenly change "lamprey" to "rabbit".

Whitebrim to Whitelace is actually more plausible, if just as dumb.

Joseph Roberts
Joseph Roberts

Kayden Peterson
Kayden Peterson

Even a vampire bat would have made more sense... eh. Well, if people like the production values, they should buy it. More money to Maruyama is good.

Jordan Gray
Jordan Gray

Nah look at it this way, the translator thought the Gorilla insult was just an insult because Albedo was taller than Shalltear, and is basically making fun of Albedo for being too big (relatively).

Makes perfect sense on why there's the jarring inconsistency. Many times in life, people get things right for completely wrong reasons.

Personally seeing as it's 2016 and I doubt any translator working for YP lacks a computer, I can't see anyone not understanding the simple concept of a username. What if a new Yggdrasil player shows up and his name is XboxHUEG will they change it to Xbox Huge?

But then again, localization has always had naming problems which has been posted over and over and over. Forget honorifics, dumb fuckers can't even take after real printing presses and order people's names by their nationality. An Asian American called James Lee? Well it's James Lee. But Yao Ming the NBA chink from China? Oh wait, Yao is the fucking last name, but no one calls him Ming Yao.

To this day localization is still too retarded to understand this.

Levi Howard
Levi Howard

Oh yeah, that makes somewhat more sense. Still dumb though.

Yao Ming
Yao is the family name, and most Asiatic cultures start with the family name, so that would be correct. Turning it around to be Ming Yao is pointless since nobody with any sense would address him that way (people who care will speak it the right way, people who don't will ask someone who knows and ape them).

I forgot what the point was. How's the rest of the book?

Alexander Wilson
Alexander Wilson

And yet user, in almost all Japanese localizations, despite the Japanese culture and language also falling under this same logic, we get western naming order for everything from Japan the moment it touches the likes of Viz and Yen Press, never abiding by the original creator's designs.

You don't see fucking Chinese dubs changing Gundam characters around to fit eastern naming order like Aznable Char and Ray Amuro. No one does that. Literally no one, but western localization. Not even the western printing industry, only the localization industry.

It's almost the equivalent of using xe, zer, whatever the fuck those people who labeled people as cis-scum or whatever. Only this time it's the exact opposite instead of making it overly complicated for no reason, now it's homogenizing everything and ripping out the context.

This goes double for Japanese names that usually have a lot of hidden meanings that only really work in the proper order, not even counting that an author usually thinks up a name by going over how it sounds in their head, so changing it around automatically deprives people of how it should sound.

user, changing around the order of Japanese names is not exclusive to book and videogame localizations. Pick up a newspaper that mentions a Japanese public figure like Shinzo Abe, or a history book that mentions a Japanese person like Hideki Tojo. For better or for worse, convention tells us to reverse Japanese names even as we leave Chinese and Korean names alone.
