Fans of Overlord have something fantastic to celebrate!

The latest volume (Volume 11) of Kugane Maruyama’s Overlord light novels revealed that the Overlord anime will receive a compilation film. The reveal didn’t specify any details on the movie, nor did it specify a time frame for a début.


The Overlord anime aired during the summer 2015 broadcast season. Naoyuki Itou (Digimon: Data Squad, Re: Cutie Honey) directed the show at Madhouse, with Takahiro Yoshimatsu (Desert Punk, Trigun) providing character designs. Yukie Sugawara took charge of series composition.

Funimation currently holds the rights to the series, which they streamed as it aired on their FunimationNow service. They describe Overlord as:

From the studio that brought you Death Parade, Parasyte, and No Game No Life comes a series that takes place in the world of Yggdrasil, an MMORPG that’s scheduled to be shut down permanently. With no family or friends outside the game, veteran player Momonga refuses to log out. As the servers go dark, he discovers that the world inside the game continues to change as NPCs begin to develop personalities and minds of their own. With a new world at his fingertips, Momonga decides to use his power and skill to stake control of Yggdrasil and become its overlord.
