Overlord Episode 5: Start slow, huh?


It looks like this show is starting to take a similar route as The New Gate, with Momonga now trying to blend in with the local adventurers' guild as a new recruit. Anyway, this week's episode ended up being pretty uneventful. I guess it's a lot of setup for an upcoming conflict. I'm actually curious what exactly Momonga has set into motion just by giving away that health potion at the inn. I'm also wondering whether this pharmacist is just curious about Momonga after seeing the potion or actually has some malicious intent hidden away.

Random side note: there was one particular scene in the episode that had me confused. Momonga went specifically chose not to antagonize the potion girl because he saw her iron plate, but had no problem taking out the guys trying to harass him...were they just copper plates as well?

I guess next week will pit Momonga against this new enemy, Clementine...given her behavior, I'm surprised she doesn't already work for him. Anyway, just how much of his power is he willing to show to his new allies? Also, I'm a bit curious to see how his fighting style changes while wearing all of that armor. When it was first introduced, he used it as a way to wield a sword because he couldn't do so as a mage. Does that mean he'll become a front-liner instead of a standard caster? It would make sense given that he brought a magic caster to escort him...

    Nah, he chose not to spend time haggling over who needed to pay the girl back for trouble caused by others and not him because he glimpsed Narberal about to cut down the girl. Basically, he saved her life to spare himself more trouble, the rank plates had nothing to do with it.

    Yeah, I guess that explains it...bringing up the plates just seemed awkward at that point

    I agree. Seems like it was just a way to establish the ranks.
