Just hoping it doesn't end up like sword art trying to use the fear of rape to add drama... I can't watch that stuff and would have liked sword art prob if it wasn't for that... and this i like a lot so far but if they add that crap to this anime then i just can't watch it ... that stuff makes me want to kill people for real and i don't need to get that angry over some dumb anime.


They already used child slavery AND their exists a prostitute subclass.

I mean, its more possible and less dramatic if they used it. AND the show is on a younger demographic scale. I find it unlikely.

And SAO was totally copying Berserk. The only difference isBerserk actuallyvhad rape happen. Hell, you arnt a main character if you haven't been raped on panel!

There's an inherent difference though between the way SAO (and Berzerk) treat it, which is somewhere between damseling and "Girlfriends in refrigerators" and the way LH has treated that kind of thing, which is either non-existant or actually empowering (per the resolution of the child slavery thing).

They handled them differently however! SAO was using it as a threat and required the hero to overcome that threat, proving the heroes love was stronger than the villian.
Berserk used the subject as tragedy. Their was nothing he could do about the rape, and it was used to depower the hero, who had previously gotten past his....past, and moved on.

Keep in mind I'm focusing on the male heroes perspective, as they are literary heroes of their stories and how they are effective I'd what's important. From the female characters perspective, they might as all have been lamps. I can not argue for the female characters, your spot on in the similarities and pointlessness of it.

Log Horizon has not used this, and I hope they don't. They used Child Slavery far better than any show I've ever seen, and to me, its a less personal and far more admirable story over "don't touch my girlfrieeeeend!!!!1!!" plots.


Aaaaaaand, what's with Child Slavery in fiction? Motherfucker can't you get adults for this? Fairy Tail had an arc where child slaves took like 15er sumthin years to build a tower. The tower was destroyed and they built another in half the time BECAUSE BY THEN THEY HAD ADULT BODIES AND COULD ACTUALLY BUILD ABSURD GIANT TOWERS.

Even Fist of the North Star. Using kids to build a giant Tomb pyramid? really? Is that even physically possible? Those kids are the size of you smallest henchman's thumb and you have THE KIDS build it?

I thought we were using the existing LH discussion thread for season 2 as well given the title change, no?

Well, this one looks kinda fresh. I haven't pmed a mod about it but I guess this could be more a hype thread before the actual discussion begins.

I dont think their will be much raping in Log Horizon based of just the titles of Light novel, it will progressively get a bit more action oriented.

I'm glad that I'll finally be able to find out what Gold of the Kunie is about, since it still hasn't been translated.
