Overlord anime is adapted from the light novel. The anime adaption of the Overlord is very good and it really gives life to all of the characters. Both the English dubbed and original Japanese voices are all pretty well done and really portray each character for what they truly are.
The animation of this masterpiece is also quite fluent as it is being handled by none other than Madhouse. The anime version of Overlord does miss out on some scenes that are present in the light novel but those scenes do not really affect the story that much. Overlord is one anime that you just can’t miss out on.
