Hopefully it will be fun and better written than SAO.

What made .hack great was #1 Kajiura Yuki , but SAO also had her. and #2 that it was like 80%phliosophy, 19% action, and 1% romance, The romance was there, I mean be it the yuri between Tsukasa and Subaru, Krim's crush on Subaru, Haseo's crush on Shino, Shino's crush on Ovan, or Tabby's crush on Haseo (or Pai's crush on Yatta). The romance was subtle though, and that is best for an MMO anime. The rest of the show was cryptic philosophy, although somehow it worked.

I don't expect that from Log Horizon. I don't mind a bit of romance, as long as LH doesn't make it the focus of the story like it was in SAO, I will be happy.

From what I can tell, and who the LN person is, I'd expect it to be more like .hack than SAO, and different in it's own way. So I don't expect many things to be like SAO at all.

.hack is great in it own way, as is SAO. I believe this has the potential to do it's own thing as well.

Less than 4 hours!

I can't believe I have to watch the simulcast stream on CR at 4:30 am in the morning though tomorrow. There goes my sleep.

Oh so the show airs in less than 4 hours in Japan?
So we can expect subs in what, 10 hours?
Or is CR releasing the episode, subbed, in 4 hours?
I'm sorry I have a different timezone so I'm quite confused.

It airs at 1:30 am Pacific West time so about 3 hours now.

The CR streams it subbed at 4:30 am so basically, in about 6 hours, you can watch it HQ subbed.

So, tomorrow morning then for me! xD Yeah, I'm excited, but I ain't waiting up that late.

Feel a bit bad for this show, because it is going to be compared to SAO all season long, I just know it.

I'm really hoping that this anime proves me wrong and it's not just a blatant copy of SAO. I really want it to be a "this is SAO done BETTER" kinda moments. In fact I'd rather not be reminded of SAO at all while watching it. Those last two sentences sort of contradict each other but YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN!

Well, the first episode seems to be a decent combination of .HACK and SAO. I enjoyed it.

Pretty good execution, I thought. Good immersion, likeable characters; the episode flew by in no time. Definitely keeping this in my queue so far.

ep 1

Naotsugu and Akatsuki are my favorite characters in the show, Shiroe, not so much.



so they got rid of the hassle of attack screens by letting the character yell out the name of their attacks...I still think it would've been better if they kept that idea of going through a menu while in battle

so far, every one seems pretty chill about being stuck in a game, no one jumping off ledges yet lol

after watching this first episode, I can see how it is kind of hard not to draw parallels to other shows
