For the last two days I've been watching Overlord on Hulu. The anime focuses on the hardcore gamer, Momongo in a full dive MMORGP on its last day. The servers for his favorite game are going down at midnight and he decides to stay in the game until the last seconds. When the clock reaches midnight, he's transported into another world with all of his items and underlings he accrued in the game. From there, Momongo is aims to conquer this brand new world.
Its good so far, however it falls victim to the same tropes other Anime seem to loose me on. The characters have wildly unrealistic reactions and over exaggerate everything done in each episode. The rules or internal logic of the anime also feel "loosey goosey" at some times. Momongo's inner thoughts are told to the audience in VO format, giving insight to his thoughts and motivation. At first he seems hesitant about his presence in the new world and wary of what information he should reveal to his underlings. But by the fourth episode, hes completely dropped the act and is completely transparent with his underlings. Also Momongo seems a little bit too over powered for it to be an interesting story.
