I was happily expecting the comment section to contain more reactions regarding Ch.25 than arguments. ...I was a bit disheartened

Some people love the series because of the world building, yes. But you are missing the point, even though I clearly stated it and used the snakes on the plane analogy to explain.

 

The massive amount of attention that this series has is because it has a skeleton as the MC and tries to be "different" by having the MC do evil things and be -somewhat- evil. About 95% of MCs tend to be goody two shoes, about 4% are gray heroes and 1% or less are evil. Editors generally react badly when an author tries to use an evil MC because readers need to be able to relate to MCs, and your average murderous psychopath isn't relatable.

 

Even in Overlord, the author goes to extreme lengths to make Ainz look like a good guy (ends justifying the means, etc) so that fans can relate to him. Unfortunately its produced a lot of dumb fanboys that insist that Ainz is actually a good guy.

 

Thank you for reinforcing my point that the MC is really bland and boring.

 

Also if you think your characters overcoming obstacles are boring, you probably shouldn't try to read anything aimed at teenagers or above, as its a basic rule of writing stories. Literally writing 101. The vast majority of editors will throw your draft into the bin if your MC is super powerful and the story just has him stomping all opposition into dust, unless its a key plot point (see one punch man for how a super powerful MC is used correctly).

 

No, Characters overcoming obstacles is a basic writing rule, yes, but it doesn't mean the protagonist is necessarily the one overcoming said obstacles. Several series have an powerful MC, but rely on the side characters and antagonists struggles to keep the story going, examples:

 

>Hellsing,

 

>Trigun (At least until the Gung-Ho guns showed up)

 

>Medaka Box

 

Stories can be interesting with "OP" characters as long as the focus on the struggle isn't on said character, but on how everybody else and the world reacts or develops around it. Case in point, this whole lizardmen arc, where the mechanics and politics of this tribal community fending off a seemingly invicible monster is pretty interesting.

 

Also, Ainz is only portrayed as someone that chooses to not exceed himself. No, he isn't fully good, but he isn't a complete monster either, or at least not to the extent his guardians expect him to be. IF we take his motivation from the first chapter, his objective is to make a name for his former guild in this new world and if possible find out if any of his old friends got sent into this new world too. That does not require him to be necessarily "evil" or "good", just impressive.

He literally said that the mercenary group were just tools to make him famous.

You're also ignoring the fact that he tortured and killed quite a lot of human.

In the anime, he also explained that he see humans as small animals.

 

He also protected a whole village, made a promise he didn't even have to, he clearly was at least partially motivated by revenge when he killed the party killer, has enough emotion to care about his now new subordinates and respects the shit out of the knight that was willing to kill himself to protect the same village.

 

You are focusing too much on what he says and ignoring his actions, which clearly show some level of empathy towards people, even though he has to play up his overlord schtick to keep the guardians in check.

Emotions != conscience.

 

He has no issues killing or torturing (or sending to death/torture) humans and other non-heteromorphs.

 

But he still feels emotions, and the strong ones get suppressed/calmed by his undead passive.

 

Oh, that's a pretty nice explanation actually. So his undeadness numbs his emotions. That's a fair explanation.

Adventurer's Guild.

 

He probably did, but the author didn't show, I don't recall it either he saying he fought Shaltear in the other chapters.

 

Seems pretty lazy to skip such an important scene.

Can someone explain chapter 25 page 11 to me?

 

Why is Ainz saying that "I had told the guild that I had used a sealing crystal..."? Which guild is this? Page 12 mentioning Momon implies that it is the adventurer's guild, but this is extremely confusing because Momon has never been shown or implied to have told that adventurer's guild that he had fought Shalltear before this point. Did i miss a chapter somewhere, or did the mangaka goof?

 

The adventurer's guild shouldn't even know about Shalltear at this point, because the only people who have actually encountered her in the forest and lived are :

 

-Brain

 

-Some low ranking adventurers who have no clue what happened because they got hynoptized, it's not even clear whether they still retain their memories of the event

 

-The people with the world class item

lizard fucking in 1080p animation

nice

Congrats Cocytus , your master bushin takemikazuchi will be proud 

That's a stretch. That happened pretty much rigth after he got to the new world. You could argue it was just him still not understanding he was on an actual new real world. He showed much more compassion and humanity some chapters after when he joined the mercenary group, reminisced about his old guild and took the mission to avenge them and not get a world item despite having the chance to just not bother with the mission.

>It is stated a couple of times that he doesn't have human conscience anymore.

 

Citation needed. He certainly remembers he is a human, he mentions how dumb Pandora's Actor is because he is ashamed of his tastes as a teenager.

From the bottom of the page to the next few he's talking about the fact that emotions restrict due to undead status, before somewhat coldly wondering if helping people being murdered even "involves him at all" and realizing what he'd just thought. The only reason he decides to intervene is because he remembered being saved once before and it's "the right thing to do".

I do recall him bringing this sort of thing up before, and maybe more in the novels, but I can't remember and don't have much time to look.

I don't think it's that he completely lacks a conscience, but that he needs to actually feel around for it since it's not right there in his face like it normally would be.

I eagerly look forward to the best arc, Lizardman arc, being animated.

 

Animated lizards, animated Cocytus, animated Entoma. Everybody wins.

Shelltear you adorable little M you.
