Volume 9 Brand New Chapter

(Re)Translated by Nigel

Edited/Proofread by Deus Ex Machina

Everyone looked forward to the coming of spring. This was more so on the part of the peasants, who could feel the earth coming back to life under their feet. However, city residents welcomed spring as well. Granted, they did so because they would not need to spend extra on heating their homes.

The first day of spring in E-Rantel was silent, however.

The main streets were empty, as though everyone on them had all died. Still,one could sense people from the houses that faced the streets through the small gaps in the shutters and doors. Those people were people were holding their breath and peeking at the world outside.

Today was the day when E-Rantel would be officially ceded to Ainz Ooal Gown and become a city in the Sorcerous Kingdom of Nazarick.

The first city gate opened, and bells of welcome pealed forth.

After much time had passed, the second gate opened, and the bells echoed through the city once more.

Between the second and the third doors was the residential zone of the city.

The residents of E-Rantel were afraid, but they had not fled was because they knew that even if they ran, all that awaited them was a life of despair.

Even if they were masters or expert tradesmen in E-Rantel, in other cities, they would have to start over as apprentices.

Cities with long histories had a seniority system. Outsiders who were new to the city would naturally need to start from the lowest, most junior positions. That was to say, even if they fled to another city, most of them would not be able to find a proper job, and they would live and die as paupers in the slums.

Without anywhere to run to, most of the residents remained in E-Rantel.

However, if their lives were in danger, they would choose to flee. That was only to be expected. After all, the gossip about the new ruler, no, their new king, was that he was a fearsome being.

They said he was a magic caster who massacred the Royal Army.

They said he was a cold-blooded being who looked like one of the undead.

They said he was a monster that enjoyed bathing in the fresh blood of children.

The rumors circulating were all of this nature, with hardly a single positive word about him.

And so, everyone hid behind their doors, planning to spy on Ainz Ooal Gown from between the gaps in their windows.

Eventually, Ainz Ooal Gown’s procession arrived on the main street.

All who saw him lost the power of speech.

He was a being who matched the rumors circulating about him.

The first person they saw could still be considered alright. At the head of the contingent was a beautiful woman who was as radiant as the full moon.

She wore a figure-hugging white dress, with silky black hair and alabaster skin. Her body, adorned with a constellation of jewelry, could not inspire lust or envy. However, the fact that she sprouted horns from her head and long black wings from her waist, in addition to her supernatural beauty, were all signs that she was not human.

Behind this beautiful goddess were the warriors. As they looked at them, the residents shuddered uncontrollably.

The warriors were divided into two groups, differentiated by the styles of armor they wore.

The first group could be called “a corps of death knights.”

In their left hands they carried tower shields which covered three quarters of their bodies, and in their right they carried flamberges.

Their tattered black capes shrouded massive frames that were over two meters tall. Their black metal, full plate armor was covered in wavy crimson patterns, reminiscent of blood vessels. It was also covered in sharp spikes. They looked like physical incarnations of brutality.

Their demonically-horned helmets exposed their rotted faces. Their empty eye-sockets blazed with a crimson fire, filled with hatred for the living and a longing for slaughter.

The second group could best be described as “a band of death warriors.”

They carried long-bladed swords, while various weapons hung on their waists; hand axes, maces, crossbows, whips, shortspears, and many other weapons. All of them bore countless dents and scratches — proof that they had been heavily used.

They were roughly two meters tall, and the armor they wore was comparatively light. Their bodies were clad in leather armor made from the hide of some unknown beast. Their tattered armor, both arms, and parts of their faces were covered in spell-strips — strips of cloth covered in arcane runes.

Below those strips were visages similar to those of the previous group; ruined faces that could not possibly belong to human beings.

Everyone could feel an overwhelming power radiating from these groups, but as the palanquin carried by several of these beings came into view, the shock they had already experienced was blown away by an even greater one.

An undead being sat on the palanquin. An overwhelming aura of death floated around him, a black mist that roiled like a maelstrom. Obsidian radiance shone from behind his back.

Everyone’s instincts immediately told them who this was.

It was Ainz Ooal Gown.

We cannot possibly survive under the rule of this monster; dangerous does not even begin to describe how our lives will be. Just as everyone started to think this, the sound of a door opening carried through the air.

The citizens of E-Rantel pressed their eyes to their gaps and slits to peek outside in order to see what was going on. What they saw was the form of a running child. He held something in his hand and he was sprinting towards Ainz Ooal Gown’s parade of inhuman beings. Behind him, his pale-faced mother was chasing him.

“Give me back my daddy!”

The boy’s young voice echoed through the streets.

“Give me back my daddy! You monster!”

The boy threw something. It was a rock.

The rock flew toward the parade — its target was probably Ainz Ooal Gown.

Perhaps it was due to nervousness, but the rock fell short of its mark and rolled across the cobbled road.

Behind him, his mother looked like her soul had left her body. She knew what would happen to them now.

The mother embraced her son from behind as her body shuddered. She desperately tried to protect and conceal his body in her arms.

“He, he’s just a boy! Please, I beg you! I beg you to forgive him!”

The beautiful woman smiled in response to the mother’s frantic plea.

They were saved. That was a warm, motherly smile that would put anyone’s heart at ease.

“—Rudeness to Ainz-sama deserves nothing short of death.”

The beautiful woman produced a gigantic bardiche out of nowhere. The fact that she could wield it so easily spoke of her inhuman arm strength.

The residents could easily imagine the uses for that axe, and their guesses were most likely on the mark.

“I must say, this is quite a low grade of livestock you’ve raised. Don’t you think it’s shameful when the price per kilogram of their flesh goes down?.”

As she watched the slowly-approaching woman, the mother realised what was going to happen to them, and hugged her child tightly.

“Please! Spare my son, even if it’s just my son! Take my life, do anything you want to me! Please!”

“What are you saying? There is no reason to kill you, is there? Ainz-sama does not enjoy meaningless slaughter. The innocent will not be killed. Please rest at ease and await the mincemeat that will be made for you in your arms… although if it were up to me, I would prefer to turn him into a croquette.”

The boy in his mother’s arms did not seem to realize that he would soon be slain. However, anyone watching knew that the child’s short life would end in a scant few seconds. Yet, nobody was willing to step forward to save him.

Although they wanted to turn from the impending tragedy, nobody could pull their eyes away.

Both mother and child were transfixed by the murderous aura that the beauty emitted.

“Regret your crime of rudeness against the most exalted one as you die.”

In the moment that the woman swung down her massive weapon, the earth shuddered as the sound of metal clashing against metal rang out. The source of that sound was a thrown greatsword protruding from the ground, separating mother and son from the beautiful woman.

That sword — and its wielder — was known to every person on the street.

He was a living legend.

He was an invincible warrior.

He was a gentle hero.


As they beheld the entrance of the only being who could save the pitiful pair, the people cried the name of the swordsman in their hearts.

—The name of the Dark Warrior, Momon.


A man clad in jet-black armor slowly emerged from one end of the alley, and wrenched out the greatsword stuck into the ground. With a mighty flick of his wrist, he shook the dirt off of it. His other hand was already holding a sword, and the battle-ready Momon faced the beautiful woman down.

“Is there a need to use so much force on a boy throwing a stone? Nobody’ll want to marry you.”

“Even if you lecture me, I won’t be hap… ahem! The sin of rudeness against Ainz-sama knows no age! All who commit it must perish!”

“And what happens if I don’t allow it?”

“Then you will be a traitor to the lord of the land, and will be exterminated!”

“Is that so? Well, that’s not a bad thing. However, don’t think you can take this head so easily, hm? If you want it, you’d better be prepared to risk yours as well.”

Momon deftly spun the swords in his hands and took a fighting stance. That bold and dominating posture was surely the stuff heroes were made of.

“You lot, protect Ainz-sama.”

After giving an order to the black-armored warriors behind her, the beauty readied her bardiche in turn.

The spectators originally believed that the winner of this confrontation would be Momon. But the battle aura radiating from the two of them denied it. They could feel that the beautiful woman was a warrior who was Momon’s equal.

The two of them closed the distance to each other in terms of millimeters. The one who disrupted the impending conflict between the two was Ainz Ooal Gown himself. By the power of magic, he soundlessly flew up from the palanquin and landed upon the earth, before putting a hand on the beauty’s shoulder.


He leaned in and placed his mouth to the beauty’s ear before whispering into it. Her face lit up with a bewitching, gentle smile.

“I understand, Ainz-sama. It shall be as you say.”

She bowed to Ainz, and then pointed her bardiche at Momon. However, her murderous intent from just now was absent.

“…I have not yet heard your name. Speak it.”

“I am Momon.”

“I see. Momon. Then, I ask you. Do you think you can defeat us?”

“…No, I cannot. Even if I fought to the death, I could only defeat either you, or the one beside you.”

Despair filled the hearts of all who heard these words. It was because they knew that even the great hero could only kill one of those monsters.

“And besides… if I fought with all my strength, many innocents would be caught up in our battle. I cannot do such a thing.”

“How foolish. Despite your impressive skills, you would go so far for these weaklings — I’ve spoken too much. Ainz-sama has a proposal for you. Listen to it with gratitude. Surrender and swear fealty to us as a warrior of Nazarick.”

“—Are you kidding me?”

“How rude. Ainz-sama does not wish to rule this city with despair and bloodshed. Besides, slaying humans does not hold any merits to Ainz-sama. But even if we said this, the people here would not believe it. So we will have you work at Ainz-sama’s side.”

“…What sort of work is that?”

“In the future, there may be more fools who would throw stones at Ainz-sama. At that point, we will have you remove their heads. In exchange, you may see how Ainz-sama does not mistreat the innocents of this city.”

“…I see. So, I will be a watchman who will stand by his side?”

“Not quite. As I said, you will be responsible for eliminating traitors. Thus, you will be a representative of the people cum enforcer.”

“I have no intention of swearing myself to the service of evil.”

“Neither do we have any plans of perpetrating that sort of evil. Then, what will you do? If you will not pledge your sword to Ainz-sama, then you shall be slain here and now as a dangerous individual, no matter how many people we have to kill to get to you.”

Momon looked around.

“I intend to travel, and I had no intention of being anyone’s subordinate...”

“That is also an acceptable answer. Then, shall we begin the collateral damage to the surrounding people now?”

“Wait! Don’t jump to conclusions. I haven’t made my decision yet. I have a partner. What will happen to her?”

“Then she must pledge herself to Ainz-sama as well. There can be no other answer.”

“The old me might have put travelling as a higher priority… but it seems I’ve gotten attached to this city. Will it be alright if I don’t kneel?”

Ainz once more whispered into the ear of the beauty.

“That is permissible, and so it is decided. Momon, work hard for Ainz-sama.”

“…I understand. But remember that if you harm the people of the city for no reason, this sword will be aimed at you and your master.”

“…In that case, when the people of this city rise up in revolt against Ainz-sama, I hope that sword will also be pointed at those who rebel. It doesn’t matter if they are children or not. I look forward to the time when this city will rise up against us, and to your agonized face as you execute its people. Then, we shall be going ahead first. Do join up with us afterwards.”

Ainz Ooal Gown’s entourage continued steadily forward. After the monstrous procession finally faded out of sight, the people streamed out of their homes. It was amazing how so many people had  managed to keep themselves so well hidden.

Everyone was praising Momon.

Just as Momon started started to shyly wave away the tide of adoration, a crisp sound rang out clearly over the crowd. It was the sound of the mother slapping her son.

“Why did you do that?!”

Again and again, she slapped her son.

Both mother and child were crying, but even so, she did not stop hitting him.

Momon grasped the mother’s hand.

“Don’t you think that’s enough for now? There’s something I’d like to ask him.”

“This boy has caused so much trouble for you, Momon-sama! We sincerely apologize from the bottoms of our hearts!”

“No, please, pay it no heed. There’s no need to apologize, Ah, there’s no need to cry either. I have some questions for you.”

As Momon tried to hush the boy‘s crying, he asked the boy why he had done it.

Everyone thought the boy must have wanted to avenge his father, but the boy said that after a strange man lectured him, he felt that throwing the rock was the right thing to do.

“I see… ma’am, there’s no need to punish your child. This was probably the result of magical control. In all likelihood, it’s a plot by the Theocracy, trying to force me into a confrontation with Ainz Ooal Gown.”

“…No, the Theocracy wouldn’t do that. Wasn’t this Ainz Ooal Gown’s plot to make you into his vassal, Momon-sama?”

Momon nodded deeply to the shopkeeper who spoke. He had opened his shop here just a couple of years ago.

“That is certainly a possibility. But on the other hand, it is also a good opportunity. Since I have an excuse to be by his side, I can monitor his movements. If he plans to harm you, I will take his head. But in exchange, you must not revolt against Ainz Ooal Gown.”

“Why shouldn’t we?! As you’re around, Momon-sama—”

“—Please do not continue that line of conversation. They’re waiting for someone to speak those words. If you rebel, he will order me to kill you for his amusement.”

Momon spread his arms, and continued speaking to everyone openly.

“I cannot be the one who breaks the agreement made just now. Because of that, I hope everyone will cooperate with them so long as they do not make any unreasonable demands. However, if you feel you have not been treated fairly, then please come to me.”

The faces of the people took on pained looks as they realized that they were hostages for Momon.

Momon smiled gently to them.

“However, I hope you will not worry too much. To begin with, that fellow might end up being an unexpectedly good ruler. Let’s wait and see. Also, if the Theocracy makes a move, they might try to incite you to revolt. I hope you will all keep your eyes open.”

Nobody could accept this.

But at the same time, nobody could oppose it.

Ainz Ooal Gown was undead. Nobody could trust a dangerous being like that which bore a hatred for the living. However, everybody trusted Momon. In fact, Momon had even given up on his goals for the sake of the city folk. It was only natural that they would give their allegiance to Momon in turn.

Everyone present agreed with Momon’s proposal, and after promising to spread these words to the people around them, they dispersed.

As a result, the rule of E-Rantel was a peaceful one without any bloodshed, something which the surrounding nations could hardly believe.

    1. yeaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhh! thanks for this great day

  3. If anyone can read this comment. Can someone please put a link for the pdf of vol. 9 i really wanted to do it my self bit i thought it would just suck. So please can anyone do it? Thanks

    1. just ctrl c and paste it don't be soo lazy

    2. or ctrl+s if the pasting is laggy, just like mine

      Copy pasting a long string of words seems to kill my lappy for some reason.

      said they will be hosting it in english / german 0-9 but they will not be translating. So if people translate it they can host it.

  4. Oh.. And again as always thank you translators.. This is too mich of a gift . To think that Christmas is a month away..

  5. Thank you so much for the hard work. Looking ahead for the next project!

  6. Thank you translator team for giving us an early Christmas gift, however I am sad because I will not be able to read Overlord LN every saturday anymore.

  7. last chapter here on skythewood, so much sadness, now what I will do T.T no more overlord releases

    1. they will no longer launch overlord? overlord or over?

    2. The right's to the light novel have been bought by Yen Press so Sky and the team have to stop translating. It wouldn't be that bad if Yen Press didn't take years to release new volumes. It may be a long time before we see volume 10 translated sadly

    3. 3 years to be precise by current estimates based on other popular series.

    4. i wouldnt give yen press a cent, even if out of spite lol. i hate the way they do this to every ln and translator i like

    5. Then stop liking LN series that are popular in Japan, especially the ones that are popular enough to get anime adaptations, because those are the ones that gets licensed.

    6. if yen press got stuff out on time it wouldnt be bad, but crap they are so slow. like maybe they have 1 translator ? idk but they estimate overlord vol 1 to be ready in 6months. So let that sink in. is hosting vol 1-9 but they do not do translations.

    7. Let what sink in? That the time between when a series is first licenced and first volume is released, has nothing to do with time between volumes?

      It's a well established fact that for Yen Press, the average time between volumes is 4 month (3 volumes per year)... Or in the case of A Certain Magical Index, 2.4 months between volumes (5 volumes per year).

    8. Let that sink in. An anon schooling someone. I just dislike yen press for their font choice for the cover of index

    9. Correction: Vol1 makes the count screwy since the release date is exactly a year before Vol5, so Index's release schedule is actually more like every 3 months (4 books a year).

  8. last chapter here on skythewood, so much sadness, now what I will do T.T no more overlord releases

  9. Haha was momo actually pandora actor?! That was funny man "no man would want to marry you" dam right. Will pandora really kill the other supreme beings i wonder?(because of albedo)
    I hope this is the next step for opening up to Ainz sama.
    This chapter was so funny. Because its all staged.

    1. No the one disguised as Ainz on the throne and whispering to albedo was Pandora's actor.If Pandora disguised as momon even if they used similar voice people would easily recognize fake momon as they have seen him before.So the real Ainz was present as Momon.And the reason Ainz(pandora) didnt speak is so that his disguise as fake Ainzz wont be recognized later

    2. Pandora can perfectly imitate a character if he's serious. He was Momon.

    3. you can tell who is the real Ainz by the way Albedo acted, Albedo was displeased when momo scolded her and very happy when Ainz wispered in her ear.

    4. She can fake that pretty easily though given how smart she is.

    5. More importantly, Albedo's retort of, "don't you dare lecture me" is not one she would direct towards Ainz under any circumstances. So it's Pandora's Actor impersonating Momon.

    6. Notice that she says: "“Even if you lecture me, I won’t be hap… Kuh!"

      She was going to say "HAPPY", before cutting herself off. The only person why can make Albedo happy by telling her off is Ainz.

    7. I wouldn't say any circumstances personally. If Ainz ordered that she do this and she has time to prepare for it she would be able to fake it as to not damage Ainz's plans.

      It honestly could be either of them. Her love struck reaction could easily be her realizing that there would be a discrepancy if she acted like just a subordinate then later on acted like her normal self. It also could be because that was the real Ainz. I want to say it is likely Momon was Pandora just because Pandora is better at putting up a show. Which makes it pretty obvious to choose him because that's exactly what they need. I could see both ways though.

    8. It could be she spazzed out even if she intellectually knows it's Pandora. She's gotten happy over far less provocation before.

    9. Dude Pandora already did imitate Ainz.So perfect infact taht not even Sebas could tell....He changes his Voice too.

    10. It's utterly implausible for Pandora's Actor to be taking the place of "Momon" in this chapter.

      While PA has taken the place of Momon before (volume 7), that was specifically in a situation where he would be isolated, and have minimal direct interactions with outsiders... Just like "Ainz Ooal Gown" in this case.

      Meanwhile, "Momon" can only be played by Ainz himself in this case, because there are countless number of people in the city who might have had prior interactions with him, who might notice something OOC. There would be no way that Ainz (or Demiurge) would risk having PA play the part of "Momon" in that situation.

    11. Well, if you confuse wether Momon is Ainz or Pandora actor then just read the summary vol. 9 in Overlord Wiki,, there it is clearly state that Momon ins Ainz in disguise while Pandora Actor acting as Ainz,,,beside you should know that Pandora actor speech is exaggerated right??? If Momon is Pandora actor then his speech and action will be different than Original Momon

    12. And they also just know that the wikia is a piece of shit with lot's of fanf fiction right?And Pandora doesn't extragate when transformed you know the begining of Volume 6?That was him.

    13. you gotta know the whole time this was going on Albedo was imagining a threesome with 2 Ainzs

  10. the paaaaaaainnnnnnnnn !!!!!!!

    sniff sniff... thanks for your hard work translators and editors you will always be in my heart.

    regarding the chapter... man albedo should be in a state of shock after her most beloved one said she may be ever unmarried XD, and even more when pandora actor whisper her to ther ear XD

    1. Maybe it was the other way arround Momon was Pandoras Actor and Momon was Ainz .

    2. Nah. If it was Pandora's Actor that said something like "Nobody’ll want to marry you." to her, Albedo would have killed him, not almost blurt out "Even if you lecture me, I won’t be hap(py)."

  11. when I read the part with the bells welcoming Ainz I immediately remembered this

    and thanks for the chapthers

    1. Hahahaha I wasn't the only one who thought of that XD

    2. Seems that I am not the only Warcraft fan here

  12. saya berharap tidak berakhir seperti anime code geass... hehe
    thanks penerjemah...


  13. I Need vol 10... Thx for everything.

  14. IM CRYING...THERE MUST BE A WAY TO CONTINUE...if not lets all join together and learn japanese xD

  15. And this is goodbye to Overlord.


  16. Thanks to all the team members for those last great chapters
    All Hail Ainz-sama!!!!!

  17. Thank you very much for translating all 9 of Overlord volume.

  18. Hehe, I was wondering how Ainz would make the people love him. This way there will be no revolt and Ainz can shower the people with luxuries and happiness and remove crime and poverty. Yes! Evil Sorcerer King of Death, the generous! MWUAAHAHAHAHAHAHA! LOOK AT MY EXCEEDINGLY AMAZING GENEROSITY!!! IS IT NOT EVIL?! MWUAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAA!

    On that note, this was an awesome place to end it.

    1. Doing that IRL would be extremely evil, haven't you considered how many politicians would become jobless?

    2. Good thing this world doesn't have politicians then huh?

  19. Today we laugh and cry, for both the life and death of the great Overlord translation by this bunch of beautiful (at least on the inside) people that brough it to us on this barren land called the "interwebs".
    Jokes aside, thanks a lot for your hard work over these months for the translation of Overlord. Though it's very sad that we'll never be able to se any more translation here, who knows maybe someday on jcafe? :3
    Pretty please? :3
    But regardless more overlord or not, I'll stay here for GATE and the new series that won the voting.

    1. For the Glory of the Great Tomb of Nazarick.

      sorry just had to do it

  20. What a great and awesome plan. Man I want to read volume 10 so bad.

  21. If Volume 10 is released in English, I'd buy it. Just FYI. Thank you team Skythewood for the happiness you have spread to us. Although it's sad that the preceding volumes will not be free I still will be happy reading what I have also gained from my hardwork.

    Waiting for more Gate: JSDF now. More happiness again. Oh yeah!

  22. What? There's more. Oh~ great translator sama. Thank you for giving us more chapter on Overlord. May god bless you and your team for all the hard work you have been doing. Thank you so much.


  23. Many thanks for translating :)!
    Goddamn, where do I get my weekly dose of Overlord now :'(.

  24. Does anyone know when Vol 10 will be released (even if it won't be translated here)? I just want to know what happens next!

  25. It was nice to follow overlord with you guys, i loved the traductions i wish that you could continue with it but ir seems not posible.

    Thanks for everything, im looking forward to your next releases

  26. Thank you sky and Co so much for your dedication. I'll probably be daydreaming about overlord for the next 3 years until yen press catches up. Thanks for the ride.

  27. Carrot and stick. Well played Ainz! Great planning. Thanks for the chapter

  28. Thanks to the translation team.

    Great acting skills guys, you can always work in a theatre group if world domination doesn't work out. Oh and...

    “Is there a need to use so much force on a boy throwing a stone? Nobody’ll want to marry you.”

    That's just mean, Ainz.

    here a map with aproximately the position of nazarik

  30. Its sad that this will be the last volume translated here :(

    Thank you for all your hard work on translating Overlord so far :)

  31. Would it be possible to keep translating if it wasn't hosted here? If so, Google drive or a site with download links could be used instead.

  32. this is not what i expect from vol 9 last LN overlord translate..... the ending just make me curious about vol 10 but...... can't read it until officially release.... And thanks for your hardwork..... appreciated and respect...

  33. And it all came together xD

    Demiurugos..... such insight/imagination.

    I'm guessing it was Demiurges/Ainz that made the kid into throwing the rock as well, as it was an essential action needed for this little act/ploy.

  34. Thank you very much for the guys did a wonderfull job.

  35. Thank you very much for the guys did a wonderfull job.

  36. Great job guys. Thank you for all the hard work you done.

  37. So was the child also part of the plan(brainwashing,etc)?Or was that just them improvising?

  38. thanks Sky
    btw Sky, you not try translate this LN tensei shitara slime datta ken

  39. it would be pretty smart of Ainz to make momon mayor/govenor of the city. the people love him and seeing as he is Ainz he wouldn't betray Nazarick

  40. Thank for anything you have dont so far

  41. Thank you so much for the early chrismast present dear Translator Team even tough i won't be reading another Overlord LN,,, but that okay i wish you all best and i'm looking forward to your next project... have a nice day and again Thank You soooo much

  42. Obviously, Pandoras Actor is Momon here. Albedo was about to say "Even if you say that I wont be happy" since she knows that he is a fake, she was interrupted half way either because Ainz kicked here secretly or he shouted at her using mind chat.
    The reason Ainz only whispered because he and momon has the same voice, other people might notice. If Pandoras Actor is acting as Ainz then he can just use his original voice or voice other than momon since nobody there has heard Ainz` voice yet. That is also the reason why Albedo blushed when being whispered by Ainz, because he is the real thing.
    Pandoras Actor is top class at imitating others, there is no reason for him to take a role that only rides a horse and whisper. Ainz is probably nervous at being momon at that time because he needs to act heroic (chuni) and decided to hand that part to Pandoras Actor,since it is his specialty.

  43. It really has been a good ride, thanks for translating this.
    I live in japan so if i try to learn japanese i might be able to read the jp version lol (i gave up on studying kanji because it was too troublesome so now I live in japan yet only know 3rd grade kanji XD )

  44. Thank you for translating this. Tho, hopefully, I could get my hands on Vol. 10 soon. It would be nice if someone would upload those too haha... huhuhu ;;n;;

    tbh, Pandora's Actor is definitely the Ainz whispering to Albedo. He deliberately let Albedo act wild so that Momon can come out.

  45. goodbye overlord gonna miss you, no volume 10 no season 2, this is the end i guess....thanks..



  48. I am stretching the imagination a bit here but I'd like to say...

    1. I find logic in his decisions...although I would like to point out on an emotional and ethical viewpoint he's...bad to the bone....YEAAAAAHHHH

    ....erm well anyways, that is to be expected as he is undead so emotions and ethics are gonna be taking a backseat...they are not gone...but they are greatly suppressed

    2. All 3 Countries (Re-Eztize Kingdom, Baharuth Empire, and the Slane Theocracy) and probably as the story progresses....the whole world is gonna have mixed reactions for him because:

    a) all the power he has...he single-handedly obliterated an army
    b) They would consider him an embarrassment on their behalf...because he just did what they can't...what did he do? mentioning again that he obliterated an army,then from my view point...he accidentally did something good...created a common enemy for all these countries who would understandably fear him, he has also founded a new country in between the Baharuth Empire and Re-Estize kingdom creating a "buffer nation" in between them...the result is the future of the annual war between Baharuth and Re-Estize becomes they would have to cross this newly founded country's territory to continue their war.

    Essentialy...this last war was like a war to POSSIBLY end future wars between Baharuth and Re-Estize

    A lot of other implications I would not mention because it would be too long but...essentially he has stirred the pot. Diplomacy, Economy, Territory, Military...this would be quite...interesting...this has the potential to be a masterpiece...I sincerly hope the author does not get forced into a situation to act like suzuki satoru and blindly stumble in the dark while writing this

    As long as the author does not get rushed...I would personally like them to take their time and explore all implications of events that have unfolded, the massacre at Katze Plains and the founding of this new country

    1. It will be hard as a Author to expand the scope of this world, as you said he just entered world stage. So either we see a true new chapter opening, dealing with major stuff and keeping the smaller ones we know about in the background. Or seeing established characteres getting draged on the world stage.

      I cant wait to read about what will happen to carne village, Enri and her goblin army.

      The reactions of the empire after their moral defeat on the battle of katze plains.

      The transition from this smaller scale to a bigger one will make or break Overlord.

      I think it will end up more like the lizard village.

      Getting a different perspecive from a new group that are encountering the Sorcerer King while have to deal with his power.

      It helps fleshing out a part in the world you never knew about. We learned alot about the lizardmen tribes in that book.

      So if the rumors are true and its about the dwarfs, i wont be suprised if we see it from their perspective while learning more about that race and country itself. While we hear bits and pieces of reactions from the countrys around.

      Vol 7 was partly a introduction to the empire too.

      Ainz entered afterall with a Splash!

      I bet the pressure on the Slane Theocracy will rise significant...the bastion of humantiy borders now a country with a undead king. There will be alot of voices calling for action after that battle.

  49. Thank you so much for the translation sky team! It's sad that this is gonne be the last one... wish you all the best and take care!
