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 can just see the copy on the Blu-Ray, "Don't worry soccer moms, not much raping!"

I love Minori.



So does Shiroe........





I really would like seeing her be more amazing and less.....undesirable situations like the whole her and Akat fighting over Shiroe. I mean, not to say that they can't, it's just the way it's been handled has mostly felt unfair to Minori. Maybe it's just a cultural thing, but things like the cake-date didn't seem to really respect her as a character. I guess they were playing to how she is a teenager after all and whatnot, and maybe some cultural differences in how females in Japan carry themselves on a date, but generic harem-esque things really degraded her and didn't seem to treat her as the character worthy of the respect of Shiroe and the audience that she repeatedly proved herself to be.

What made that work entirely was the response after the fact. "This is a problem", "No it's not, you're just in pain." The dating elements are cliche, but seeing Minori start to see the real answer to her question is exquisite.

Indeed. Minori is younger than Shiroe and the whole romance is unable to develop. However, time is something Log Horizon plays with. They will be trapped forva currently unknown length of time, I find the Minori romance only able to improve its chances as the show goes on. Goku didn't have a kid with Chichi the day they met, it took more than a few years. My parents, grandparents, and great grandparents all had larger age differences than Minority and Shiroe

But yea, team Minority...woooh.

we had this talk in the old thread, but the Minori romance can't and shouldn't happen.

Exploitation of your student and child abuse are just the beginnings there.

We had this *argument in the old thread. The Mknori romance can, should, and arguably is happening, although the tree might not bare fruit. An 8 year age difference gets less significant with age. At the moment, Minority has no chance.

But they held chemistry, and that is damn important. Children are not children forever, students are not students forever.

Minori might be 14 forever... we just have to wait and see. But it time skips 2 years by season 4, I demand SME romance.

Hero-worship isn't love, and we shouldn't pretend it is :p

I'm glad I didn't participate in the thread when things were discussed like above in regards to the romance. I still haven't watched the final episode yet of season 1 so I should get to that.

Hero worship is a term more suited to Akatsuki, whose sole purpose is to praise the glasses Shiroe ponders upon. Minori had a child-like admiration for Shiroe, but that doesn's negate the scores and scores of character development. Minori has gained a fandom for a reason here. She's simply the better character, ergo my pick of choice on who wins the romance sub plot.

This is all a discussion of a romance sub plot that will likely never get a conclusion.

I'm not a big fan of "well she is too young" in the whole fiction romance subplot discussion. Unless Shiroe has a scene in which he does some kinda father or teacher thing, which would be weird, Minori is not a child, she is not Shiroes child, and she does not act or play the role of child character.
If she was indeed a child character, I would be 100% with you.

But admiration is not simply hero worship.

I think everybody is forgetting that Henrietta also likes Shiro . She'd be much better suited to him than Minori or Akatsuki , anyway... Once you consider their personalities, Henrietta is the most mature and relates to Shiro in that department. She'd be the best woman for him, hands down.

Regardless of all that, I don't think Shiro is looking for romance anyways... I think he has feelings for the former leader of the Debauchery Tea Party, Kanami .
