Eh? Wherever did you get the idea CZ does not talk in source materials?
Not going to rattle off her bits...but seriously volumes 12 & 13 want a word with ya.

The joke would more be aimed towards her being a robot?

What is wrong with the reviewer ?! He giving every episode very high score even though this season is boring and less funny that season 1

Obviously the reviewer sees it differently than you do.

I will concede that, overall, the first season was sharper on the wit.

I'd imagine that with the first season they had more time to tune the humor. And they had many high school tropes to use. This season they've seem to run out of the cliche high school events. They got the second season out pretty fast.

Personally I'd love to see the Student Counsel at this school. They haven't done that yet. I'd imagine the other heros from Shield Hero would be on that. With their over inflated egos. No idea who else would be on the Counsel.

She also had a line or two in season 3 of the main Overlord anime. Not to mention Ple Ple Pleiades

I laughed pretty hard at Naofumi's take on Cinderella. Weiss maintaining his interest in chocolate from the V-Day episode was a good followup.

Yeah, I enjoyed the few moments we got of WN naofumi.

One of my favourite bits was probably the back and forth between Naofumi and Shalltear

The characters name is Rista not Lista. Also, it's really cool that they payed off the minor cameo from Rista in season 2 episode 8 with an actual speaking part this episode along with Seiya. If they do another season I hope they do more of these cameos from other series, it was a fun moment.

including Aura rapidly twirling one of The Saga of Tanya the Evil guys (Vooren, I think?)


That's Mare spinning Neumann,Aura is dancing with Koenig and Vooren is the one dancing with Beatrice. The in-joke is Mare,while shy & reserved, is quite the sadist.

Albedo showing off her skills as a melee powerhouse; she's often been mentioned as one of the strongest denizens of Nazarick, but this is the first time (even including her source series!) that she has actually get to demonstrate her power in animation.


Err Overlord's source material has shown off Albedo's powers.Also the anime's first season showed off her missile parry & counter skill and her great strength.

Ugh. I can never keep Aura and Mare straight.

There was one very brief shot where she took a guy's head off during the confrontation with the Theocracy guys, but that's the only scene in the first season that I can think of. That definitely wasn't a display of strength on this level.

Not as good as season one, but still lots of good moments. 50 DKP minus, however, for not having Albedo putting someone in the walls of Jericho while casting walls of Jericho the second time.
