Soon, the Overlord will reclaim his throne in Yggdrasil.
Earlier today, the official Overlord anime website updated with a new teaser trailer. The 90-second promo features a look at the show in action, as character dialogue conveys the major story beats.
Overlord will return to Japanese TV in January 2018.
Naoyuki Itou is returning to direct Overlord‘s second season at Madhouse, with Yukie Sugawara back in charge of series composition. Character designer Takahiro Yoshimatsu (Desert Punk, Trigun) will be joined by Satoshi Tasaki (No Game, No Life Zero, Rideback) this time around.
The first Overlord anime season aired during the summer 2015 broadcast season. Two compilation films opened earlier this year. The first film, Overlord: Fushisha no Ō debuted on February 25. The sequel, Overlord: Shikkoku no Senshi opened on March 11.
Funimation currently holds the rights to the original Overlord anime, 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.
