Overlord Season 3 Finale Review 

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

Despite the fact that Gazef can not defeat Ainz, he challenges Ainz for a duel and ends up being killed. 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 using such powers, Gazef’s sword would kill him. Thereby, he casted a spell to stop the time and kill Gazef on the spot. 

Well, to honour Gazef, Ainz called upon the Dark Young but warned Brain about the consequences that all of the people would have to endure if they refuse to surrender. 

Not only Jircniv but the King and Nobles of the Kingdom after knowing all about Ainz 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 realised 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 a hold on E-Rantel while the people ran out of fear and terror. In the last few moments of the season 3 finale, we got to know 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 in actual, help the people to 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 surely get to witness the rise of Ainz as the Sorcerer King of the kingdom as well as we will see how Brain, Climb, and the rest of the people would be able to end the reign of Ainz terror. 

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

Let’s see what Brain & Climb has to offer in order to restore the peace in their kingdom. They will surely find a way to put a pause on Ainz terror once & for all. Moreover, Apart from them, Momon will surely 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 get to hear the official news about the release of Overlord Season 4. Until then we can speculate what the long-awaited season will bring to us: will someone be able to stop Ainz or people will 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 to come.
