Recap / Overlord 2012 Episode 03 Battle Of Carne Village

Go To

In the frontier, Gazef Stronoff and his Warrior Troops encounter a ransacked village. He tells his Vice Captain to send the survivors to E-Rantel but the vice captain warns him that the attack on the villages was a trap to lure them out. Gazef disregards his warning and continues to pursue the imperial knights. In Nazarick, Momonga using the Mirror of Remote Viewing discovers a village being attacked by knights. At first, he doesn't want to get involved as there's no benefit in saving them but when he sees Sebas's face, it reminds him of Touch Me, who had saved him from being P Ked, and the ideals which he holds. That makes him decide to save the village as a way to repay his debt to Touch Me.


Momonga teleports himself to the outskirts of the village, saving Enri Emmot and Nemu Emmot from the knights. He then summons a Death Knight which slaughters the soldiers on sight. Albedo soon joins him, in full armor. The appearance of Momonga and Albedo frighten the two humans, prompting Ainz to disguise himself as a masked Magic Caster. Before departing to take care of the remaining soldiers he introduces himself as Ainz Ooal Gown.

After Ainz saves the village, he gains information about the New World from the village chief. He decides to withdraw but Gazef's troops arrive at the village. Ainz Ooal Gown introduces himself as the one that saved the village. Gazef thanks him for saving the village, however, an unknown group have surrounded Carne Village.
