Fiction and fantasy make one see the innumerable amount of possibilities, a reason why the genre has become so popular among entertainment lovers.

Overlord, an Isekai anime with just the right amount of realism blended in fantasy came out in 2015 and as of 2022, the Overlord Season 4 release date has been fixed.
The anime’s plot revolves around a person who gets teleported into a DMMORPG and takes on the name of Ainz Ooal Gown. Through its unique storytelling and lovable characters, the anime series has made itself a huge fanbase. After three successful seasons, fans are more than excited for the recently announced Overlord season 4. Given the big cliffhanger that the anime previously ended at, the upcoming season is definitely worth looking forward to.
The Overlord anime is based on a light novel series written by Kugane Maruyama and illustrated by so-bin. It was launched in 2012 by Enterbrain and later translated to English by Yen Press. At the time of writing, the light novel is ongoing and has 14 published volumes. In 2015 it was adapted into an animation series by Madhouse. The anime received several positive remarks from fans in Japan as well as anime fans overseas. This was no surprise given an amazing animation, character design, as well as outstanding execution.
