Overlord light novel volume 13 is a great addition to the series, I love Neia’s character growth, her new friendships, and the overall world building of this volume!

This volume was released on April 27, 2018 in Japan, and June 1, 2021 in English version.

This post would only talk about the volume 13 in specific. If you want to read all volume reviews, please visit our Overlord light novel complete list.

And here are the reasons why Overlord light novel volume 13 would make me couldn’t put the book down the day I receipt it.

Great Read and Great Continuation

Overall a great read and a great continuation of the Holy Kingdom arc. It gives the world so much depth and the people who live in it.

On the minor downside, I still think the translation feels a bit forced, especially for some key terms that appear frequently. Now that the term “Sorcerer King” is used in anime, it feels offensive to read it as “King of Darkness” all the time.

Phrases like “weakness is wickedness” feel wrong to native English speakers. The “weakness is a sin” alternative found on fan wikis feels much more natural.

Apart from the translation and how Yen Press handle it in a wrong way, the light novel itself is very great for fans of the series (what else are you reading about volume 13?), this is a must-read.

Absolutely Riveting

This is one volume of everything I love about this series. Dark humor, action, relationships, and intrigue.

Overlord is the only light novel series to feature a relatable and charismatic villain. For this reason alone, there is no other series look like it.

In fact, it upsets me every time people try to compare. Along with its excellently good writing and excellent pacing, this series, this volume, becomes an absolute banger at the time.

Great Collection for Bookshelf

If you’re wondering if you should get the rest of the series, do it. It is a neat bookshelf series that you will want to read all the time.

If you’re a fan of dark fantasy like Dark Soul, but also a fan of cool yet hilarious protagonists like Sir Daniel Fortesque, then this is the series for you.

The writing, character personalities, character development, character design, plot, and setting all earn five stars from me. Being a fan, I quickly picked up all the light novels and manga to experience the story in as many different ways as possible. Glory to Ainz Ooal Gown!

A Work Worthy of Being Collected

The book is great, the story develops well, like the other previous books. Worth buying to read more often.

The only problem I had was with the advance purchase that, even after the book was officially released and available for direct purchase on Amazon, my order took over a week to ship.

Honestly, I thought it was a disgrace to those who bought in advance. But in the end it all came together and the reading was worth the effort.
