What is Overlord Season 4 About?
According to So-Bin, the illustrator of Overlord, Season 4 will adapt the 10th novel volume that he very much anticipated and enjoyed.
Overlord Season 4 will presumably depict the battle between Ainz Ooal Gown's newly hailed Sorcerous Kingdom of Nazarick and the traitorous Baharuth Empire.
Overlord Season 4 is expected to focus on Ainz Ooal Gown's declining kingdom as he tries to solve the scarcity of resources in his territories. If the anime stays true to its source material, Albedo will also confess her feelings for Ainz.
Overlord follows the fate of Ainz Ooal Gown, formerly known as Momonga, as he is transformed into a powerful skeletal wizard after failing to log out of the popular online game Yggdrasil.
From this point forward, the anime is set in the fantasy world of Yggdrasil, where non-player characters (NPC) begin to feel emotions, and Ainz embarks on a journey to conquer the new world.
