The anime film will adapt the Holy Kingdom Arc from the light novels volume 12 and 13. It covers the story when demon emperor Jaldabaoth invades the kingdom. Left with no choice but to join forces with the Lord of Death, Ainz will fight the demon emperor.
Release date of Overlord Season 5
Since there is no confirmation of Season 5, the release date is not announced yet. Fans might have to wait for years to watch Season 5 due to lack of source material. Maybe the production committee will up their game once the author releases novel volumes 17 and 18.
Overlord volume 16 released in July 2022 in Japan and in November 2022 in English. Volume 17 might release this year.
