Synopsis


The story begins when 30,000 Japanese gamers are trapped in the fantasy online game world Elder Tale. What was once a sword-and-sorcery world is now the real world. The main lead Shiroe attempts to survive with his old friend Naotsugu and the beautiful assassin Akatsuki.

Status: Not yet aired
Aired: Oct 5, 2013 to ?
Producers: Satelight, NHK, NHK Enterprises
Genres: Adventure, Fantasy, Magic, Romance, Shounen
Duration: Unknown



The concept sure as hell reminds me of another popular anime series that debuted last year. But any rate, Log Horizon does details about an fantasy online game and I can ensure that beating it is not an easy task. I'm curious how the characters will behave in this though given their new situation.

Also, the show runs for nearly 25 episodes so I'm assuming it will cover quite a bit from the LN. I'm ready for the ride though.~

This thread is for anime discussions - the manga hits other areas, and is further along in the storyline. If you want to talk about those, please check out http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumtopic-837361/log-horizon-discussions.

I had high hope for this show, i wish the story progression will focus on gaming and strategy skills.
so what do we have here oh ther-



Genres: Adventure, Fantasy, Magic, Romance, Shounen


Romance in this anime? i hope this will not become Dating SIM.

List how to make this anime successful
- Level and experience points must be revealed
- Player`s status must be seen in the anime
- No tentacle thing monster
- No fairies
- More action, less talking
- Characters must never explain their plan to the enemy
- Character Development must focused on the main cast
- No Deus Ex Machina (unless there is a special item to gain victory)
- No 1 year timeskip
- The adaptation must follow the Light Novel properly.

I like the concept. It'll never be as good as .hack, but neither will SAO. But I like the whole premise better than SAO because it's more like Maoyu.

After watching the trailer, it looks like it won't try to be nearly as serious as SAO thought it was. The fact that "Elder Tale" actually LOOKS like an MMO that someone would play seems really cool. I mean, as a game SAO would be pretty meh without the VR seeing as there are seemingly no roles (Tank, DPS, Healer, Support etc.). I am actually really looking forward to this, because regardless of how good it is, I will probably still love it.

I have read the summary. This is not like a death game, though; if they die, they are just revived.

I hope CR gets this, it sounds interesting. But I fear that it will be bashed into the dirt with how many people out there despise SAO, and this has a similar tone to SAO.

But, conversely, there will also be those who will turn any compliment for Log Horizon into an indirect criticism of Sword Art Online. Hopefully this show's discussion thread will play nice for 25 whole episodes lol
