Overlord Season 3 Finale Review 

By the end of Overlord Season 3, we witnessed that he finally, Ainz achieved what he longed for: he became the sorcerer king of the sorcerous Kingdom after defeating & killing Gazef. 

Even though Gazef can not defeat Ainz, he challenges Ainz to a duel and kills him. Well, there was something quite interesting that we got to learn about Gazef and his sword, that he possesses some unknown power that is way beyond his diminished mana powers. Ainz realized that by using such powers, Gazef’s sword would kill him. He cast a spell to stop the time and kill Gazef on the spot. 

To honor Gazef, Ainz called upon the Dark Young but warned Brain about the consequences that all the people would endure if they refused to surrender. 

Jircniv and the King and Nobles of the Kingdom, after knowing all about Ainz’s powers, were terrified to death. Thus, they gave up E-Rantel as Ainz wanted. 

However, following the unlikely duel challenge & gazef’s demise, Brain and Climb realize that by doing so, he has shown them a way to learn more about Ainz. They vowed to be way better than Gazef and defeat Ainz. 

So, at last, Ainz grabbed hold of E-Rantel while the people ran out of fear and terror. In the last few moments of the season 3 finale, we learned about Demiruge’s master plan: he planned to find out & kill enemies. Meanwhile, Momon (the new city representative and law enforcer appointed by Ainz) will act to serve Ainz but help the people fight against him. 

By the end of the last episode of Overlord Season 3, we witnessed Ainz as the sorcerer king, declaring that it would be the founding of the Sorcerous Kingdom. 

What to Expect From Overlord Season 4?

In Overlord Season 4, we will witness the rise of Ainz as the Sorcerer King of the Kingdom and see how Brain, Climb, and the rest of the people will be able to end the reign of Ainz terror. 

It would be hella exciting and full of action to have another season to watch: wait for the release of Overlord Season 4 if you want to know who will defeat Ainz. Gazef’s sword would play a vital role in doing so. Who knows if they will resurrect Gazef or if someone else will wield his sword to end Ainz? 

Let’s see what Brain & Climb offers to restore the peace in their Kingdom. They will indeed find a way to pause Ainz’s terror once & for all. Moreover, Apart from them, Momon will undoubtedly play a vital role in all this. We hope that we won’t end up dead just like the rest. 

Bottom Line

Soon we will hear the official news about the release of Overlord Season 4. Until then, we can speculate what the long-awaited season will bring us: will someone be able to stop Ainz, or will people live in fear forever? We can expect that the fourth season of this light novel-based anime series will premiere either by the end of 2020 or earlier in 2021. Until then, we can keep our hopes high for the better.
