Overlord

We're well into the third season, what's everyone think of this dark and sometimes funny anime? Absolutely love that we've got an anime with outright villain protagonists in it, very refreshing.

Awfully hard to get some action here, isn't it?

I saw the first season, and I liked it. Only snippets of season two, the situation with Albedo was distracting and I sense tragedy coming. Can't stand tragedy for it's own sake, so I held off. Should I try and get a look at #3 ?

That's the beauty of Ainz Ooal Gown...Everything he does has a purpose. To give some not really spoilers...There's exactly one human character outside of Nazarick itself that Albedo actually respects (though that part is mentioned in volume ten of the light novels, which hasn't been put to animation yet), and it's because the human in question is practically a demon or devil already in their mind. A complete yandere like Albedo, but with FAR more self control. There's a lot of death in this series, not all of it completely deserved, but most of it necessary. Some resurrections, but definitely the exception, not the norm. It's a series very worth following, imho.
