This anime was a nice surprise for me. Overlord isn't overrated, it is still underrated. Are you looking for a waste of few hours of your life? Go elsewhere. I agree that this anime just isn't for everyone, some people won't like it. No anime ever filled me with such a strange energy. Overlord sets the standard 10/10 for anime anime series. Few bad reviews here to obviously scare people away. There is no competition for Overlord in 2015 for the best anime of the year. Don't wait anymore and watch Overlord for free online.
