Volume 9 Brand New Chapter

Translators: Nigel, Zack Tan
Editors/Proofreaders: Namo-Namo, Rockgollem, Tainted Dreams, Skythewood

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, even city residents welcomed spring as well. Granted, spring in the cities was largely a matter of not having to buy kindling for warmth.

On the first day of spring in E-Rantel, however, all that greeted it was silence.

The main streets were devoid of people, as if they had all died. Still, from the gaps in the shutters and doors — cracked open just a little — one could sense something from the houses that faced the streets. It felt as though 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 city 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 reason the residents of E-Rantel had not fled was because they knew even if they escaped, all that awaited them was 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 social order and hierarchies. 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.

As such, most of the residents remained in E-Rantel.

However, if their lives were in danger, they would choose to flee. That was only sensible. 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 creature who looked like an undead being.

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.

Before long, 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 diaphanous white dress, with silky black hair and alabaster skin. Her body, adorned with constellation-patterned jewelry, was beyond the realm of lust and 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.

If the first group were to be summarized in a phrase, it would be “death knights.”

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

Including their tattered black capes, their massive frames were more than two meters tall. Their black metal, full-body armor was covered in wavy crimson patterns, reminiscent of blood vessels. It was also covered in spikes. They looked like physical incarnations of brutality.

The faces of their helmets — which sprouted demonic horns — were open. Within were the remains of 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 “death warriors.”

They carried long-bladed swords, while various weapons hung on their waists; hand axes, warhammers, crossbows, whips, rapiers, and other weapons. All of them bore many 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. The ruined armor, both arms, and parts of their faces were covered in spell-strips — strips of cloth covered in arcane runes.

The only thing that could be seen from between the strips were the ruins of human features, similar to those of the death knights.

Everyone could feel an overwhelming power radiating from this contingent, and as the palanquin carried by several of these beings came into view, the shock they had experienced faded into the background.

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

Just by instincts alone, anyone would know who this was.

It was Ainz Ooal Gown.

We cannot possibly survive under the rule of this monster; our lives will be short and stunted things. Just as everyone started to think this, the sound of a door opening carried through the air.

In order to see what was going on, the citizens of E-Rantel pressed their eyes to their gaps and slits to peek outside. 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 Ainz Ooal Gown.

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

His mother who caught up with him had the look of a dead person. She knew what would happen to them now.

The mother hugged up her son from behind as her body shuddered. She desperately tried to conceal the boy’s body in her arms.

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

In response to the mother’s frantic plea, the radiant angel smiled.

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

“—Ten thousand deaths will not suffice to atone for the crime of disrespecting Ainz-sama. We shall start with one.”

And then, the beautiful woman produced a gigantic battleaxe out of nowhere. The fact that she could wield it so easily spoke of her superhuman arm strength.

The uses for that axe were very easy to imagine, and the things they imagined were vivid indeed.

“You should be ashamed of yourself, as a breeder who raised a worthless head of livestock.”

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? Is there a reason to kill you? 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… although if it was up to me, I would prefer to turn him into a croquette.”

The boy in his mother’s arms didn’t 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 their eyes from the impending tragedy, nobody could pull themselves away.

Be it mother or child, everyone was 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 Albedo swung down her massive axe, the world shuddered as the sound of metal clashing against metal rang out. The source of that sound was a thrown greatsword that had buried itself into the earth, interposing itself like a shield between the pitiful mother and son, and the beautiful woman.

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

A living legend.

An invincible warrior.

A gentle hero.

As they beheld the entrance of the only being who could save the two of them, the people sang the name of the swordsman in their hearts.

The name of the Dark Hero, 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 his 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… Kuh! The sin of rudeness against Ainz-sama knows no age or gender. 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, protect Ainz-sama.”

After giving an order to the black-armored warriors, the beauty readied her battleaxe in turn.
The spectators wanted to believe 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 shortened the distance between themselves into the range of meters. And 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.

“Ainz-sama!”

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

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

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

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

“I am Momon.”

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

“…No, I cannot. Even if I fought to the death, I can 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 — 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 these streets with despair and bloodshed. The extinction of all humanity would not offer any benefits to Ainz-sama. But even if we said this, the people here would not believe it. So we will have you do Ainz-sama’s work as his subordinate.”

“…What’s that all about?”

“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, we will permit you to be a witness, in order to prove that Ainz-sama will not allow the innocent to suffer in his city.”

“…I see. So, as his enforcer, will I be serving from beside him?”

“Not quite. As I said, you will be responsible for eliminating traitors. Consider it to be a form of self-representation, combined with the role of an 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 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 have 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 also have a partner. What will happen to her?”

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

“Although in the past, I put my objective of travelling as a priority… it seems I’ve gotten myself entangled with 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 long procession had finally faded out of sight, the people streamed out of their homes. It was amazing how so many people managed to keep themselves so well hidden.

Everyone was praising Momon.

Just as Momon started using his hands to wave away the tide of adoration, a 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 didn’t stop hitting him.

Momon grasped the mother’s hand.

“Could you let him be 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 he had to throw the rock.

“I see… dear mother, there’s no need to punish your child. This might be the result of magical control. 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. Isn’t it Ainz Ooal Gown’s plot to make Momon-sama into his vassal?”

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, I hope you will not revolt against Ainz Ooal Gown.”

“Why shouldn’t we?! As long as we have Momon-sama—”

“—Please do not continue that line of conversation. They are waiting for someone to speak those words. If the idea of rebellion comes up, he will order me to kill you. Perhaps that’s what they’ve been hoping for.”

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 be able to bear with anything unreasonable they say. However, if anyone feels they are being treated poorly, please inform me.”

As they realized that Momon was saying he was a hostage, the faces of the people took on pained looks.

To those people, Momon smiled gently.

“However, I hope you will not worry too much. To begin, that fellow might end up being a good dictator. 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 from the bottom of their hearts.

But at the same time, nobody could voice their opposition to him.

Ainz Ooal Gown was undead. Nobody could trust a dangerous being like that which bore a hatred for the living. And, of course, 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, E-Rantel became a place the neighboring countries scarcely believed could exist, a peaceful city without bloodshed, existing under the rule of Ainz Ooal Gown.

    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

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

      Delete
    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

      Delete
    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.

      Delete
    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.

      Animestroll.com is hosting vol 1-9 but they do not do translations.

      Delete
    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).

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

      Delete
    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).

  10. 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.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    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

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

      Delete
    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.

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

      Delete
    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.

      Delete
    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.

      Delete
    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.

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

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

      Delete
    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.

      Delete
    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

      Delete
    12. And they also just guess....you 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.

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

      Delete
  11. 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 .

      Delete
    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)."

  40. 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

  43. 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.

  45. 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.

  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 complicated...as 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.
