Overlord Season 4 will have a short petit animation series titled Ple Ple Pleiades 4. The anime will begin broadcasting on AT-X and streaming on KADOKAWA’s YouTube channel on July 5 and will follow the main Overlord Season 4 as it airs, just like it did with the previous seasons. The anime features chibi-style art.
The official Twitter account of the Overlord anime posted a teaser picture for Ple Ple Pleiades 4 on June 24 that says the anime is to stream on July 5. It also shows two characters of Great Tomb of Nazarick, Sous-chef and Eclair Ecleir Eicler at a bar. The bar’s master is serving a glass of cocktail to the penguin-like assistant butler sitting in front of him.
The tweet was followed by another post that introduces the plot of the petit anime as:
Ainz Ooal Gown’s thought about the future of Ainz Ooal Gown Sorcerer Kingdom and this made him give Sous-chef an order: Teach the Pleiades about the service industry. Will the combat maids Pleiades successfully accomplish this mission?
Minoru Ashina is returning to Ple Ple Pleiades 4 as the director, after having worked on previous seasons of the anime and the spin-off crossover Isekai Quartet series. “I’d like you to enjoy ‘Ple Ple Pleaides’ that has a matured mood, different taste from ‘Isekai Quartet’” the director tweeted. No further information about the length of each episode and episode count is available at the time of writing.
