Anime Club: Overlord

Community Room B
Wednesday, Nov 9, 5:30pm to 7:30pm

Love anime, or been wanting to get into it? Join us Wednesday evenings in November for Meadowridge Library Anime Club's Light Novel November! Every Wednesday evening, we'll celebrate by watching an episode of an anime inspired by a light novel.

This week, we'll be watching Overlord. On the night his favorite MMORPG is scheduled to be shut down, veteran player Momonga stays logged in until the clock hits zero. The screen goes dark for only a few moments before he finds himself completely immersed in the online world of Tggdrasil. Left with all of his character's devastating powers, total dominion over his loyal NPCs, and nothing better to do...Momonga decides to try his band taking over the world. All the hours he's spent grinding and dungeon crawling have certainly paid off, and as he tests his strength on local rogues and legendary beasts, he comes to realize that not one opponent can stand against his might. Embracing his new identity as the fearsome mage Ainz Ooal Grown, Momonga continues his search for bigger, badder adversaries. Leaving the people of Tggdrasil to wonder - who exactly is trapped with whom?

This anime is appropriate for ages 17 and up.
