Few animes deliver what they promise. Very few, even more so.😦
Overlord, the anime adaptation of Kugane Maruyama’s light novel of the same name. It features an overpowered protagonist trapped into the vices of a MMPORG. In a world he worked hard to build long after the game 🎮 decides to pull the plug, is as thrilling as an isekai game can get in today’s times. No wonder the year-gap between Season 1 and 2 seemed like an abyss 😣.
But even as Overlord III, the third installment of the series, started airing from July 10, 2018, a break of mere months following the second season which aired its last on April 4, 2018, fans cannot simply contain their excitement 😄😄😄!
A lot of anime art inspired from Overlord III is already doing the rounds🎨! Needless to say, most of it is focused on Overlord’s pretty ladies 💃. Mind you, they look like they’ve dropped down from the heavens but their devastating prowess is derived from hell. You can find them everywhere.

Some people find the Overlord Battle Maids irresistible. Most of it is due to the air of mystery surrounding them. Not much is known about these Pleiades Six Stars that guard the Great Tomb of Nazarick 👯♀️. We do know something about Nabe though. Nabe or Narberal Gamma is Momon’s adventurer partner in a team called Darkness. She is a doppelganger maid, meaning she enters her human form through her Doppelganger’s transformation skills.
@aurelienkun captures Nabe in her most sublime form-elegant, soft, donning her white bonnet 💄 – in her shading art. Don’t let her soft appearance fool you though. She is capable of casting some significant damage through her magic. It merits her the fame of being one of the most powerful adventurers in the Sorcerer Kingdom 🧙♀️.

If there is anyone amongst Overlord’s female characters that deserve a mention in the same breath as the name of the anime itself, then it’s Albedo. The Overseer of the Guardians of the Great Tomb of Nazarick commands attention for both her unparalleled ethereal beauty and her closeness to the protagonist Ainz💋.
We salute @geishaxart who has not only attempted but successfully brought to life Albedo’s titillating personality in her art 😍. Clad in her namesake immaculate white dress with delicate silky gloves on her hands and a golden spiderweb neckpiece across her neck and chest, Albedo comes across exactly as fans know her – insanely beautiful ❤️ and stubbornly psychotic.

When they’re not both dabbling and ogling at Albedo at the same time, most artists also find Zesshi Zetsumei an interesting draw. Zesshi, who currently sits on the Extra Seat in the Black Scripture, is half-human, half-elf and fully hetrochomic- she possesses half-black and half-white hair and eyes. @godssoni_ plays with dual colors in his Zesshi art and we must say, he brings out the elf princess 🧝♀️ beautifully even after limiting his choice of colors. The skillful use of line art ✍️and special attention to her skin tone truly stands out!
All of the aforementioned ladies and the rest of the Overlord female characters are so versatile in their appearances and personalities that no two artists can draw them the same👩🎨👨🎨. So who are your favourites and how would you like to pay them a tribute? Let us know 😊!
