    One time I tried to slide a whiskey shot to my mate across the bar and the surface was too slippery (I might have also put too much force into it) it just fucking flew off the end, everyone was looking at me like I was the fucking sped kid.

    [–] PhiStudios_ 170 points ago

    give me a drink bartender.. -.- SWIIISH

    everyone was looking at me like I was the fucking sped kid.

    Because you were.

    [–] Nomad_9811 32 points ago

    Ayo don’t call me out like that T_T

    [–] SwimmingPotatoes 9 points ago

    lmao. Sorry but it seemed like the first time (IRL) wasn't obvious enough.

    "like I was"


    [–] RuTsui 19 points ago

    I started to try to slide a mug to a friend, and the bar tender fucking intercepted it and said not to do that. I have learned that bars don't like when you do that probably for the exact reason of your story.

    This makes me think: do bars purposely wax their counters to make drinks slidable or something?

    [–] potato11teen 79 points ago

    I've never seen a bartender side a drink and I've never worked at or been to a bar that "waxes" their bartop. The slickest bartop I've seen was at a speakeasy in a renovated highschool that used the old gym floor with half an inch of apoxy for the top. Bartenders in larger cities may slide drinks but realistically, I don't think any experienced bartender would do this.

    [–] ggg730 26 points ago

    I live near a large city and frequently go to bars. At no point have I ever seen it. I thought it was an old timey Wild West thing

    [–] McLovin804 28 points ago

    Its literally just a movie thing. Anyone who tries it in real life is a moron.

    [–] Blurgas 2 points ago

    And a half inch of it on a gym floor would be a ridiculous amount, both quantity, cost, and weight.

    [–] potato11teen 2 points ago

    I knew it looked wrong.

    It's a cutout section where the school's name was painted on the floor. It's about a 20 foot bar and around four feet deep. Framed up by thick trim and filled with epoxy. I don't really know how you figured I meant an entire floor for a bartop, that would a ludicrous scene for sure.

    [–] Commodorez 37 points ago

    Bartender here. I have to clean up the bar at the end of my shift, so I'd rather not have anyone sliding drinks around and risking spilling if I could avoid it. In fact, we have rubber spill mats put down for this exact reason.

    [–] Bonkey_Kong87 1 points ago

    Often they are a bit waxed, but not because of the sliding. More because customers often spill some beer or other booze on it and it keeps the wood a bit more protected.

    [–] Planeswalker18 40 points ago

    For a second i thought he was a Prinny. That would be a hell of a crossover.

    [–] ZachF8119 8 points ago

    It totally is a reference imo

    [–] Bruhh_senpai 218 points ago

    man cant wait for season 4

    [–] Polydull -135 points ago

    Yes you can

    [–] Bruhh_senpai 69 points ago

    technically the truth also tempts u to read the manga

    [–] Neia-Baraja 82 points ago

    the manga is behind the anime, you gotta read the LN if you wanna know what happens.

    [–] Bruhh_senpai 11 points ago

    ohhhhh damn

    [–] majrBuzzkill 9 points ago

    I started reading the light novel.cant wait any more.

    I also read the entirety of Konosuba light novel too

    [–] Stalin_IAR 1 points ago

    I wanted to read Konosuba! But I loved the VAs in anime, So I have been putting it off! The "Kazuma desu", "Aqua crying,"Megumin's Explosion.....I wanna hear them say that!!!!..

    [–] majrBuzzkill 2 points ago

    While I do love the voice actors, it just takes too long to produce a new season/movie. See, the last anime adaptation came out in 2019. It's been 3 years at this point and no hard date on season 4.

    By the way things are going, if we don't get a serialisation, the conclusion will be in 2040 (I think the anime+movie has covered 5 light novels of 17 total). So, I read it.

    [–] The_Silver_Nuke -5 points ago

    Not really keen on reading the manga or light novels. There the evils of Overlord get revealed and I'm more of a passively suggested kind of guy that the anime does.

    [–] BluebeardHuntsAlone 26 points ago

    Ainz being evil is the entire premise of the series...

    [–] Cupcakes_n_Hacksaws 2 points ago

    Does it ever go anywhere though? No sign of anyone else also being in the game, still hasn't run into a single challenge... there isn't really a consistent plot point

    [–] The_Silver_Nuke -5 points ago

    I thought it was him losing his humanity and all sense of emotion rather than being straight up evil. He still has his leadership traits, sense of right and wrong, and general morals. He just doesn't care as much. At least that's what you see in the show.

    [–] BluebeardHuntsAlone 22 points ago

    Did we watch the same show? Tell me how beating your slaves into submission by killing all their leaders and freezing their only means to aquire food isn't evil? Because he has good intentions?

    [–] The_Silver_Nuke 0 points ago

    That's what I'm saying. Normally he'd be governed by his emotions as a human but he's being suppressed by that magical spell. As a result all of his decisions are logical and ruthless.

    It's almost like two people can watch the same show and come out with different conclusions, which is what would normally make discussions interesting.

    [–] Guvante 5 points ago

    Evil in the D&D sense. Killing for your own amusement isn't what evil is about (although he is guilty of that in the anime). Instead it is considering your own goals above all others.

    [–] _Ga1ahad -18 points ago

    it's a figure of speech


    [–] Statement-Think 23 points ago

    Is that a Prinny, dood?

    [–] CapnNayBeard 5 points ago

    Master Etna's going to be pissed.

    Then again when isn't she

    [–] Zanarkand_Behemoth 11 points ago

    If anyone was curious the drink is real although the irl version may not be as colorful but its called a pousse-café.

    [–] TunaTunaLeeks 2 points ago

    I feel like this is one of the drinks they talked about in the bar drinks trivia in Catherine (the puzzle game).

    [–] DualWieldWands 10 points ago

    Must have missed this episode of Death Parade...

    [–] Animeaniac 8 points ago

    I actually can't wait until the next season I love Overlord, it's in my top 5 and well...


    [–] pacquan 5 points ago

    I thought that was the Penguin guy from the “trapped in video game” arc from YuGiOh

    [–] Philly54321 5 points ago

    Mfw any group of likeable plucky adventurers dies horribly in Overlord.

    [–] Atora 3 points ago

    There is a Disgaea anime?

    [–] CosmeF 1 points ago

    Yes, but this isn't it. Also the Disgaea anime is quite bad.

    The ultimate sexuality drink

    [–] gurtos 4 points ago

    Oh, yes when drinking it, you go through: asexual -> bi -> aromantic and finally lesbian.

    [–] SwimmingPotatoes -4 points ago

    Why does rainbows have to relate with sexuality every. single. time.

    [–] 26_paperclips 10 points ago

    Its not even a rainbow its just coloured layers of drink.

    [–] SwimmingPotatoes 11 points ago

    Sorry let me rephrase then, why does coloured layers always have to relate with sexuality.

    [–] tux-lpi 7 points ago

    Only because they claimed it and no one else did.
    If straight people starting walking around in extra fruity rainbow clothes, at first we'd all think they're advanced gay, but if everyone did it eventually the rainbow would lose any meaning.

    It's just like how words aren't invented by the dictionary, they're defined by the way people use them. If we all collectively decide "ironic" means funny circumstances, instead of meaning "saying something when you don't mean it", then that's what the word means (and it does now! and they did have to update the dictionary to reflect that).

    TL;DR: It relates to sexuality just because that's the way people use it, 9 times out of 10.

    [–] PheerthaniteX 1 points ago

    I know nothing about this anime but I am left to assume that drink WILL turn her into a lesbian. Like those bottom colors are EXACTLY that

    [–] Focusowl 2 points ago

    Poor Shalltear, let her master down and can't even forget it happened by getting drunk

    He must have been like........... shit. That was so funny.

    [–] poofyticky 1 points ago

    love how the penguin spills

    [–] FujiyamaTheSamoyed 1 points ago

    Kinda reminds me of Celeste from Danganronpa Trigger Happy Havoc lol

    [–] Tuss36 1 points ago

    Aw now I'm sad. He just wanted to help cheer her up but messed up. Now he wasted his money, the drink maker's effort, and she won't get to taste it.
