So Ainz gave her a maid. Interesting. I wonder when she'll finally figure the whole thing out.

This story arc went form one of the worst (Volume 12) to one of the best in Volume 13. It shouldn't have been broken up!

Chapter 3, part 2.

Spoiler: show
This entire part was so cute holy shit

s u p e r c u t e

CZ slipped up there though. I suspect Neia will catch on soonTM.

The blatant rune advertising is fantastic as well.

also, the memes that accompany each update are top notch. here's this update's one.

The toadman in-joke is one of the best in-jokes Jircniv keeps to himself.

Serious discussion, does CV like Neia? I think CZ likes Neia.

Neia can read through the poker faces. This is really dangerous.

I was really excited for the fight against the circlet, since I thought it like the demihuman bosses and wasn't aware of Nazarick's plans in detail. It had Kelart's head and CZ had already used some of her skills. It also had impressive dialogue and boss-like tactics.

But in the end, it was another shallow advertising scheme. And Neia wasn't participating, which likely spooked Nazarick into thinking she realized the bow is not runecrafted.

The best part by far was CZ talking about Ainz.

the read was fantastic, but the art conveys it in a way that's absolutely hilarious.

For those of you reading the translations day by day as they update, fair warning. The current first image (the usual meme one) is porn for this update. For some reason. Either scroll quickly, or open in a private place.

As for the update itself:

Spoiler: show
Checkmate.

At least, until Neia pulls out the runecraftTM.

Epilogue

Spoiler: show
ooooooooooooooooo

That's some spooky stuff right there. The cult of Ainz-sama.

I might have missed it, but did they mention what happened to the former holy queen? From what I remember she was getting the dicking, but then nothing was mentioned since. There was mention of her companion, though.

That was a fanfiction written by the translator, Nigel.

Calca was used as a club until all that was left was her rotting pelvis (which Wrath was using when he first fought Ainz). As we know, Kelart's head was used by the circlet during her fight with Neia and CZ.


Ultimately, I think Volume 13 is a lot better than Volume 12 but it lost a lot of steam going in to the second half. No offense to Neia but THIS ENTIRE STORY would have been better from Nazarick's POV, as it's more interesting that way - trying to run a vast and expansive conspiracy for three months to a year.

A lot of readers have pointed out that Maruyama might be trying to avoid writing from Demiurge's perspective, for fear of disappointing fans that he isn't as intelligent as his settings made him out to be. These criticisms would happen no matter what (they've levied against Legend of the Galactic Heroes, even) so while fair to fear it was a huge missed opportunity to gain insight into the NPCs.

I think it would have been hilarious if, on the inside, Demiurge is actually a nervous wreck trying to not disappoint Ainz while struggling to understanding his vast unfathomable 10,000 year plan. Nazarick has been completely unchallenged since the Shalltear incident so things have been a little...cruise control?

We've got a year wait until the next volume so I hope people will talk about it!

While the relaxation episodes are all and good, I was expecting some actual progress this episode. Like shit man. Ah well.

The intro was ... interesting. Was uh, different. Well, guess I'm waiting on next week :/

Minor LN spoilers

Spoiler: show
The stuff that happens is all canon in the LN and was literally half (or more) of one entire volume. That means way more time focusing on the other books.
