Isn’t it obvious that you need to watch an anime with the first season? Well, it is the same with the Overlord, and it consists of 13 episodes and ran from July 7, 2015, to Sep 29, 2015.

So, once you’ve made up your mind to watch this anime, make sure to follow our Overlord watch order guide and start with the first season.

Right when you finish watching the first season, you can jump on to the second one. Two movies can be watched after the first season, but they’re just recaps.

So, instead of delaying your enjoyment by watching the movies, you can jump right into the second season of the anime.

3. Overlord Season 3

Finally, you’re going to dive into a more action-packed journey with the third season. Once you’re done with the second season, you can watch the third one.


There are a couple of movies in the series you can try watching if you want. But we don’t really recommend it since they’re just recaps of the first season. Anyway, here are two movies:

  • Overlord: The Undead King
  • Overlord: Dark Warrior

Spin-offs (Non-Relevant)

In the above introduction, we said we would provide you a relevant watch order without any unnecessary ones. However, these spin-offs are funny, and we recommend you watch them if you can.

  • Overlord: Ple Ple Pleiades (8 Episodes with 3 min runtime)
  • Overlord OVA (1 Episode with 30 min runtime)
  • Overlord Movie: Ple Ple Pleiads (2 Episodes)
  • Overlord: Ple Ple Pleiads 2 (13 Episodes with 1 min and 30 seconds runtime)

A Quick Review on Overlord Anime!

I won’t say that Overlord is the best anime out there, but for what it has to offer to the audience, I think it did a pretty good job. Also, it is not meant for everyone.

Some people find it boring, and other people call it one epic adventure. Well, I belong to the latter half of the audience, and in my opinion, you should give this anime a shot.

Frequently Asked Questions:

  • Do you need to watch Overlord Movies?

    Nope! You don’t have to watch the two movies to understand the second season because they’re just recaps of Season 1.

  • Will Overlord get a Season 4?

    Of Course, It will get a fourth season because season three didn’t end as to how an anime should end. Besides, the story is yet to be finished according to the light novel.

  • Where to watch Overlord anime?

    You can watch it on most of the streaming platforms such as Netflix, Crunchyroll and also if you prefer to watch it in the dub, we recommend you try Funimation.
