Show me the way to go home - I'm tired and I want to go to bed
I had a little drink about an hour ago - And it’s gone right to my head
Wherever I may roam - On land or sea or foam
You can always hear me singing this song
Show me the way to go home.

I'm with you on this one. From the looks of it, it's a way better series than those two.  :perv:

Doubtful.

 

As this series doesn't even seem to compare to either of the two, of which are of better quality and story.

Eh. I was just poking a little shit talk, but I see you're serious and uptight about this. I'm sorry.

It's wonderful to judge a book by its cover and not its actual content.

I never said Overlord was better than Hellsing or Berserk, I simply said its narrative is as dark (or darker), but I consider Overlord better than Berserk.

I wouldn't judge it so quickly if I were you

The only thing I hear about this LN is praise and lots of it, and remember that this being made by the best studio in Japan right now

Albedo-chan so beautiful. I'm really fond of these character designs, though I've seen some suckers complain about them, heh.

 

Here's hoping Albedo character matches her looks!

Quite personally? Albedo from the Novels is slighty different by the artstyle (More round eyes, anime syndrome). But it is not like she is that different, MADHOUSE can not simply match this kind of character design into their animation 100% accurately.

Spoiler

As for her personality, she is really great as a guardian and overall hilarious when it comes to the Romance gags, mostly because her creator Tabula Smaragdina was a fan of moe, heavily influencing Albedo's personality, just like his love for horror movies influenced Albedo's sister, Nigredo.

While I have not heard about that personally, LOG HORIZON is an anime that I keep hearing good things.

 

LH was overrated.  It kind of lost focus as it went along.

That's just DEEN being DEEN. What can you do about it ?

Gives you a general idea of the characters quirks, how the combat is...and just funny moments.

I feel like Sakamoto Maaya or Itou Shizuka would've been a better fit for Albedo, but I guess Hara Yumi works too. Or maybe Kobayashi Yuu ? Hmm.

What characters do/did they portray?

 

I am satisified with Shalltears, and I am the Gothic Lolita Vampire fan.

What characters do they portray?

 

I'll give some examples that I'm familiar with.

 

Sakamoto Maaya - Oshino Shinobu ( Monogatari ), Ryogi Shiki ( Kara no Kyoukai ), Kusanagi Motoko ( ARISEVERSE )

Itou Shizuka - Takao ( D-Frag ), Akeno Himejima ( DXD ), Luviagelita Edelfelt ( Prisma Illya )

Kobayashi Yuu - Honda Futayo ( Kyokaisenjou no Horizon ), Shido Mariya ( Maria Holic ), Kimura Kaere ( SZS )

 

It just feels that her voice doesn't suit Albedo's mischievous character. She's a succubus for crying out loud, she oozes sex from every pore. Hara Yumi's voice just doesn't have that depth, maturity and lustful desire in it. Doesn't sit well with me, but oh well.

I need to watch more Anime, I only know Shinobu from that list.

 

Ehehehehe, Albedo is not exactly a "Succubus", I will let that surprise sink in the novels.
