I trust you sasuke706, it's just always good to see a source. This is the internet and misinformation has a way of spreading quickly.

If it's ending with volume 8, will the author at least figure out a good stopping point for Arc? Granted, Arc has done well to basically help align the human kingdoms and also improve conditions for non-humans. However, he's also still technically stuck as a skeleton in a video game world he used to play. We don't know the circumstances of why he's in the world yet and if there are any other player characters who are also there.

Maybe the sequel can be Overlord vs. Skeleton Knight

^ I haven't read the novel myself to confirm, but there has been talk in this thread before about how there were other former players in the world before. Like elves with Canadian names and such.

What does that mean though? I mean, if you notice the Elves' whole society seems to have a Canadian theme. Does that mean former players were transported to the world and basically started the Canadian society of ancient elves? How does that work? Did they give the society Canadian names as a joke? Were those players from Canada? That idea just sounds very weird and confusing.

Arc is Japanese, and his base form in the game is a dark elf, but he took on a generic fantasy character name like Arc. I recall in the books, he didn't think the Canadian sounding names for the Elf villages didn't sound like a coincidence.

But what is even happening to Arc? Is this a situation similar to Death March where he was summoned to the world? Was he summoned to save it with his player cheat powers? Why is it he gets the cheat powers? Is he stuck in some sort of game-induced coma like Sword Art Online and the game programming has changed? I'd like to know what's going on there.

Since it seems you couldn't be arsed to go back through this thread to find anything, here's what I found about other "players" in this world. Nothing too detailed, but it's still something and that's the best I can give you since I haven't gotten around to reading this myself yet.

The details are very vague and confusing and the context isn’t there. It also doesn’t really explain Arc’s situation and why players are stuck in a game world that has seemingly become reality

Personally, I think it is more likely that the "undead king" simply pretended to have died and used that opportunity to establish himself as the pope of the Hiruku religion.

The person playing that character was a normal person, but even a normal person should've been able to see that enemies would keep coming at him as long as they knew about him.
First he kills bandits, then he kills a few knights, then he kills a lot of knights and then he has to kill an army of knights.
I believe it is more likely that the player defeated that army. IIRC the Hiruku religion started spreading after that incident, and if someone who was "a player" and presumably comparable to Arc had been involved in the incident with the "Undead King", they wouldn't have stopped at "Undead King".

More likely it would've been "the Emperor of Death".
And there would've been a lot more armies around...

In Overlord the exp was kept but no one was able to see levels, kill a lot and you get stronger (weird how farers and butchers aren't warlords in worlds like that) but it seems that in this story there are no levels, you train and you get stronger, can't tell for sure but I think Arc was at level max when he was transferred, if levels were around the pope should be invincible after all he done.
But given the difference in experience between the 2 I think Arc will kill him through poison or teleport, both with the holy spring bath, centuries of madness would kill him in a minute.

The manga has already depicted a number of 'unsettling' images before. At least it isn't extreme like having a missing limb on top of it.

Reading that part in the novel made me rage, the manga just made it worse.

Humanity deserves it.
