Seven months have passed since volume six was published. Long time no see, I am Maruyama.
By the time this volume get published, it would be the end of August, when summer is at its peak. When Maruyama was young, I felt the heat receding when September comes along, but that isn’t so right now, it still feels hot in mid September. That was just my memories when I was young, it would be strange if nothing had changed at all.
As Maruyama puts on another layer of clothes known as fats, I once again affirm that I hate summer. In order to cool the computers down, I spend most of my time in an air conditioned room, but I still sweat a lot when I travel to my company. Perfume/Cologne would be overwhelmed by my sweat, this is the worst.
That’s how it is. Would the people who saw the belt on the book shout out in amazement? They might think that this must be an illusion caused by the heat of the summer or something.
However, this is the truth!
Even Maruyama shrieked “Are you for real!” as the project progressed. Overlord is getting an anime!!
In order to achieve great results, I will work hard, please take care of me!
I will bear with my stomach pain and enter the part where I express my gratitude.
It is an honour for the history of lightnovels for So-bin-sama to provide his unbelievable book illustrations. That’s how Maruyama feels, and the readers must be thankful for you too! Let’s eat out together next time! Kōdodezainsutaji-san, thank you for your cool designs as usual. Osako-sama who is responsible for the proofreading and editing, thank you for your pointers.
F-tan-sama the editor, who advises Maruyama seriously and recommended Kyouhoku for the illustrations without hesitation. Please don’t push yourself and work in moderation.
And the various individuals who assisted in the production works. Thank you everybody. There is also Honey, thank you so much for your help.
Thank you readers for purchasing my book!
