Exciting news for anime fans as Kadokawa has revealed that an Overlord movie is in the works alongside the fourth season of the highly popular anime. One Punch Man and Hunter x Hunter studio MADHOUSE will once again helm the upcoming season.

“At last, the fourth season of the anime and the theatrical movie are in production,” director Naoyuki Ito said (via Funimation). “We are working hard to ensure that the show will be satisfying to both fans of the original versions and those who only follow the anime. You’re going to love it.”

The full announced crew includes Itou, Yukie Sugawara as the script supervisor, so-bin for the original character design, and Satoshi Tasaki handling character design. Satoshi Hino will return as Ainz, while Yumi Hara, Sumire Uesaka, Emiri Kato, Yumi Uchiyama, Masayuki Katou, and Kenta Miyake will also reprise their respective roles for Season 4.

Overlord premiered in 2015 and is adapted from Kugane Maruyama’s popular light novel that features art from artist so-bin. The series takes place in the year 2126 and focuses on a massively multiplayer online role-playing game called YGGDRASIL. As the servers are shut down, the strongest player in the game, Momonga, stays logged in and gets transported to a different reality. Non-playable characters gain sentience and Momonga uses his ridiculous power to figure out what happened while also looking for anyone else from the real world.

The full Overlord anime, including the first three seasons and two films (which are recaps rather than theatrical releases), is available now on Funimation both in subbed and dubbed forms. Meanwhile, Crunchyroll has access to the first three seasons subbed, while the first season’s dub can also be watched on Hulu.

It was officially announced on May 8th, 2021, as part of a Livestream event that the anime adaptation of Overlord is getting a fourth season, along with a brand-new anime movie, but when will Overlord season 4 be released, and what will the plot be about?

The first 13-episode Overlord television anime series premiered in Japan in July 2015. Since then, this series has amassed a sizable fan base that is still waiting patiently for Overlord Season 4 Episode 1.

Overlord Movie Story

Anime royalty Madhouse has confirmed that the forthcoming Overlord movie is set to adapt the “Holy Kingdom” arc from Kagune Maruyama’s light novels which span volumes 12 and 13. The arc sees the game’s Roble Holy Kingdom come under attack by the demon emperor Jaldabaoth and team with Ainz Ooal Gown to bring him down.

As the Overlord movie will cover the “Holy Kingdom” arc and the second season of the series adapted volumes 7 through 9, Overlord season 4 will likely focus on volumes 10 and 11 of the light novel series. Volume 10 sees Ainz Ooal Gown and his newly established Sorcerer Kingdom face opposition from other in-game nations, while volume 11 sees Ainz forge an alliance with the Dwarf Kingdom.

Overlord Movie Release Date

Unfortunately, Madhouse has yet to announce when Overlord season 4 will be released, so there is no countdown yet. We need to wait for more information about the fourth season and the movie. But, when the fourth season gets a release date on the Overlord official Twitter account, we will let you know.

However, the most likely release date is either January 2022 or April 2022. Most anime series are usually released 6 to 9 months after they are announced. So we should hear something about the date in the next few months.

Let’s hope we will get to learn when Overlord season 4 is coming out soon. Many anime fans want to know when season 4 of Overlord will be released, but for now, all we can do is wait for some news or updates.

So far, the anime adaptation of Overlord has covered volumes 1 to 9. Each season of Overlord adapted three volumes of the light novel. As a result, volume 10 continues where the anime ends. So, if you can’t wait for Overlord Season 4 to be out, you may start reading volume 10 now.

In Japan, there are currently 14 light novel volumes of Overlord released so far. In 2021, the light novel Overlord is still ongoing. That means the story isn’t over yet. Overlord Season 4 will take the story forward and it’s expected to cover light novel volumes 10 to 12. After that, the movie should adapt to volume 13.

This article will be updated as new information becomes available. For the time being, feel free to check the anime category for more information on anime sequels, or simply share this post with other Overlord fans.

Jujutsu Kaisen 0: New Movie Official Release And Everything You Should Know

Jujutsu Kaisen 0: The Movie (2021) - IMDb

The recently added teaser trailer for the movie adaptation of the anime series “Jujutsu Kaisen” has got the fans all hyped up. The trailer has raised the expectations of every anime fan to discover what the movie has in store for them. Looking forward to knowing more about the Jujutsu Kaisen 0 movie?

Jujutsu Kaisen 0: The Movie has now got a confirmed release date. I have everything you need to know about the release date, cast, and plot of the upcoming anime movie Jujutsu Kaisen 0: The Movie.

The movie is said to be the adaptation of a manga that goes by the same title written by Gege Akutami. Originally titled “Tokyo Metropolitan Curse Technical School”, the movie adaptation Jujutsu Kaisen 0: The Movie will follow the life and adventures of Yuta Okkotsu. And guess who is going to be voicing Okkotsu; Best known for adding life to Sailor Uranus in the Sailor Moon series among many other anime series, Megumi Ogata is all set to give her voice to Okkotsu.

Jujutsu Kaisen 0: The Movie inclining in the directions of adventure and supernatural fantasy is directed by Sunghoo Park and MAPPA studios returning for the anime production.

The new footage showcases the prequel movie’s protagonist, Yuta, along with the spirit that protects him, Rika. The highly anticipated film is scheduled to premiere on Dec. 24 and is being produced by studio MAPPA, who also animated the first season of the Jujutsu Kaisen anime, as well as other series such as Attack on Titan and the upcoming anime adaptation of Chainsaw Man.

Jujutsu Kaisen 0 is the story of Yuta Okkotsu, a young man who is haunted by the spirit of a young girl he was once in love with, Rika. Unfortunately for the young couple, Rika’s spirit has become a Curse, a malevolent spirit that feeds on humanity’s negative emotions. While Rika originally wanted to protect Yuta, her spirit has now become a malicious beast that hurts anyone who gets close to him. Not wanting to see anyone else get hurt, Yuta takes a self-imposed exile until he is brought to Jujutsu High, where he learns how to control Rika’s power and uses it to combat other dangerous Curses. While this prequel does not feature Jujutsu Kaisen protagonist Yuji Itadori, many other popular characters from the main series, such as Satoru Gojo and Toge Inumaki, do appear in the story.

Season 2 of the Jujutsu Kaisen anime is also currently in production but has no scheduled release date. The manga will resume publication this August, following a two-month hiatus that was initiated over concerns surrounding series creator Gege Akutami’s health.

Seven Deadly Sins: “Cursed By Light” Movie Review

Anime fans, it’s here! The Seven Deadly Sins: Cursed by Light is out on Netflix. This film is the second movie based on the manga and anime series – with a running time of one hour and twenty minutes this film is one you shouldn’t miss. 

Directed by Takayuki Hamana at Studio Deen, The Seven Deadly Sins: Cursed by Light is the latest anime movie based on The Seven Deadly Sins manga. The film was a huge hit in Japan and soon after its release Netflix sealed a deal to bring it worldwide on our screens. Now fans can witness the aftermath of the Holy War!.

The movie takes place after Humans, Goddesses, and Fairies, with Seven Deadly Sins’ help, wins the “Holy War” against the Demons. Regaining peace after the battle doesn’t last long though. There is a new threat, which means all the deadly sins must reunite to fight against it. The story is meant to be a love story between Meliodas and Elizabeth, but it is heavily focused on Meliodas and Zeldris. There are four main battles, which makes this film action-packed and exciting.

This film is full of magic, demons, fairies, giants, epic battle scenes, so what is there not to like? In my opinion, nothing. This film is entertaining, engaging, and quick to understand and follow, even if you haven’t seen the previous films or aren’t familiar with the series.

The voice-over actors have done a brilliant job, the animation is good, to a high standard and the soundtrack is not overwhelming, it compliments the animation very well. The storyline has some good plot twists – Spoiler Alert: the great plot twist where the real enemy is the supreme Deity. However, I do not feel they took advantage of her being the villain. Also, it really only takes Meliodas and Zeldris to beat her. The Demon King required the strength of all the sins and Elizabeth and beat him, so considering that the Supreme Deity and Demon King have the same strength it shouldn’t have been that easy to beat her.  

To sum it up, if you’re a big fan I’m sure you will love this film and it will be a roller-coaster of emotions and give you a sense of closure. If you’re not a fan, new to the genre, or looking for something new to watch I’d give these films a chance. I highly recommend them.

The Reason Black Clover Ended On A Cliffhanger

Black Clover Movie: Release Date, Story & Anime Ending - OtakuKart

Unfortunately for Black Clover fans, the anime ended its run with 170 episodes in March 2021. There’s been no announcement for a next episode, even though the creator of the series, Yūki Tabata, is still writing the manga it’s based on. A lot of people are looking at this as the series having been canceled, or think that something might have happened behind the scenes to make the show end so abruptly.

Besides, Black Clover has only had four seasons and there’s still so much of the story yet to be explored. The Spade Kingdom arc, for example, could have its own anime spinoff. 

So what happened to Black Clover? Was it canceled, are they making room for the upcoming movie, or is there a more complicated explanation?

Why is ‘Black Clover’ canceled?

Black Clover Season 5 Release Date: Renewed or Cancelled?

Stopping the Black Clover anime now looks like a calculated move for the manga. For a lot of manga with their own anime, the series usually follows what’s in the book.

But there are times when the anime is produced faster than the manga can be written. In those instances, filler episodes take characters and put them in situations outside of what’s in the books. Once more content is written, the anime typically gets back on track.

According to Comic Book, Black Clover is trying to avoid having lots of filler by giving the anime a break. In the meantime, the series’ first movie will be released, allowing Yūki Tabata more time to continue writing the manga. This means that the anime will most likely make a comeback. 

Some fans don’t like when there’s too much filler, but some animes are insanely popular in spite of it. Naruto and One Piece are good examples of highly popular titles with hundreds of filler episodes. 

The upcoming ‘Black Clover’ movie is continuing the series’ story.

After four seasons, Black Clover is getting its first movie. Right now, there’s no word on when the movie will be released, but in a tweet, the show said that there would be more information about it at a later date. It’s expected to premiere either in late 2021 or early 2022. It’s not clear what the movie will be about, but it could be a great excuse for the series to try something new.

While it technically would be filler content, it could still easily be something fans would enjoy. 

Anime fans have a lot to look forward to considering that Black Clover isn’t the only series with a movie in its future. My Hero Academia is coming out with its third movie. Jujutsu Kaisen is getting its first, and Demon Slayer is getting its second. 

This is a big deal, especially for Demon Slayer, since its first movie, Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba the Movie: Mugen Train, has become the highest earning Japanese film of all time, according to Comic Book
