Suzerain created in 2015 and is adapted from the popular light novel by Kugane Maruyama which features the art of artist so-bin. The series is set in 2126 and focuses on a massively multiplayer online role-playing game called YGGDRASIL. As the servers are shut down, the strongest player in the game, Momonga, stays connected and is transported to a different reality. The non-playable characters gain sensitivity, and Momonga uses her ridiculous power to figure out what happened while looking for someone else from the real world.

Full Suzerain the anime, including the first three seasons and two films (which are recaps rather than theatrical releases), is now available on Funimation both as subtitles and as a voiceover. Meanwhile, Crunchyroll has access to the first three seasons with subtitles, while the voice-over for the first season can also be watched on Hulu.
