There's nothing too different so far from the first season so I can't say I'm disappointed. Then again I wasnt a fan of the first season either... I just don't see the draw of this show. The story is boring so far, there are way too many characters, there aren't any interesting characters, the animation is shoddy, at best, and the content is just too technical to be enjoyable.

To put It in one sentence, it just feels like a show made by engineers rather than artists.


Engineers you say, well that's a good things, as this anime is a true to life anime adaptation of the better, more complex MMOs out there(Specifically, It's largely based off of RO, you can tell the creator is a big fan of RO, that's for sure), and it covers all the issues that exist in a MMO, and It's damn spot on at that.

Naturally, if you're not a fan of the better MMOs out there, you're not likely to like this anime that much(nor are you fully gonna beable to grasp everything in the series). This anime assumes you played MMOs(and great ones at that, not POS WOW).

In short, this anime is really for people who have played such MMOs, and have gone though/witnessed such going on them selves. The fact It's so technical, is one of the best things about this anime.

The animation is good enough, and the char art is great, so cut them slack on that geez, you're starting to sound like your nitpicking now as far as that goes.


Speaking as an engineer, it wasn't a compliment But no, I've never been a huge MMO player since getting burned out grinding on the legendarily crappy Runescape many years ago... So obviously actual MMO players are going to enjoy this more than the average viewer, I suppose. But that would be more true if it actually stuck to that identity. Unfortunately though, they're attempting to add some really poorly written romance, and what appears to be an attempt at drama.



Yea, I know you meant it in a bad way. You can have romance in a MMO though(hell you can get married in RO, even have kids), and there "is" drama in MMOs, exactly how this anime portrays such at that, so yea It's well within the scope of MMO life..

Omg Runescape is such a bad game, sadly it suckered so many people into trying it, as it was pretty much the first "legit" f2p MMO.

the LH vs SAO debate is about to start.

Again....... great.


The problem is that it's such an apt comparison.

They're 2 shows with purportedly the same theming but entirely different approaches.

.Hack is too old to compare :p

I liked what has gone on with Shiroe's plotline. As for Akatsuki's plotline, the only good thing I can say about it is that it is over.

Sigh, don't like Akatsuki huh?

I actually like her for the most part, but I suppose not everyone is gonna like the same characters.

Well her story arch just finished, so next ep the focus should be switching to Shiroe, and their Raid.

Not to mention that both shows have, when you severely simplify things, have been the same stuff so far in their second seasons. Both have a murder mystery arc with heavy focus on a female character with some self worth issues as well as arcs with the characters going on raids.

More so than their first seasons it is just so easy to compare the two right now.

Some people can't stand Akatsuki, but I still like her. Her story sometimes unwatchable for haters, but it shows how she's gradually changing.

Is S2 a disappointment? No, not for me. I still enjoy it. It's fun and less drama and pointless fanservices.

This godamn series is a dissappointment. I forced myself to watch season 1 and well it was boeing. Season 2 starts and I have hope for action but it is still boring. SAO is flawed but at least is better than this crap.


Honestly I think this is the issue for folks.

People want in anime CLEAR GENRE shows, in this case SAO shonen action, maybe a bit more mature.

Log Horizon is a weird show, and it's weird that it got adapted for TV at all, because it's simply not like the standard fare, whether in theme, or in pacing, or in general characterization.


It sort of reminds me of Babylon 5. Both look at political and economic issues and the characters have to solve the issues that come up with brains. Both also happen to be excellent shows to marathon.

I am S.

I wholeheartedly love it when the hopes and hype of those who watch anime have it come crashing down in their faces.

Does this make me a bad person?
