I was delighted to see this long overdue sequel to Overlord turn up for the Winter 2018 season, and hurriedly rewatched the original series to refresh my memory. This new season both picks up just where the first one ended and introduces a number of new characters who will no doubts be either opponents or allies of Ails Ooan Gown as the story progresses. Yet it sort of 'felt' different somehow; it's hard to put into words, but the storytelling technique seemed to have been changed slightly. Perhaps I was impatient to get on with the story but this episode was more about refreshing memory and introducing new characters. One fairly obvious difference was that the ED song wasn't nearly as raucous and naughty as the original one (there was no OP song in episode one). I hope the overall quality will be comparable to season one, but so far I can't tell.
