    Entertaining and very well thought out.
    I'll be brief. Log Horizon is solid. It's got fluid animation, a solid game-like soundtrack, a reasonably intelligent story, an awesome setting, and cool characters.

    Some other good points:
    1) No fanservice. None.
    2) Doesn't take itself too seriously but can easily be taken seriously by the audience.
    3) The MC is a mage! And he has a personality!
    4) It doesn't always focus on the ...

    The anime I wanted from SAO
    First off, this anime is NOTHING LIKE SAO, other than the fact that they are stuck in an MMORPG. Despite that, SAO was the main reason why I tried Log Horizon out in the first place, so that's what I'll be comparing it to.
    Being a MMORPG player and a person who likes to excessively ponder in my free time, I was very intrigued by the premise of SAO and dove straight into it, expecting some ...

    Great anime, very unique.
    From the start I knew some people were going to complain about it because of their undying love for SAO and .hack. This anime is nothing like .hack and SAO except for the fact indeed they are stuck and it's a game where they are in it. The characters are dressed like their class, each character has it's own great personality, and they even have different races. If I was to say this was closely ...

    look, it's Log Horizon...
    it isn't Sword Art Online or .hack. if you appreciate it for what it is, you'll have a better chance of enjoying it. it gives off a really 'fun' feel and maintains a bright and light hearted aesthetic without diluting the gravity of the dire situation that the characters are in. the feeling that i get from Log Horizon is akin to the feeling that i got from Monster Rancher when i was younger. i ...

    A few quick points on Log Horizon [Spoiler-free]
    I usually write reviews on Tumblr, but because this series is unfinished I don't feel I can properly review it along with me just having a few key points I would like to have.

    To start this off, this is the only show that actually has an MMO setting. Sure dot Hack and SAO claim to have MMO settings but you could pretty much just exchange their world with any other fantasy setting and nothing ...

  • [Spoiler-free long review] Though the sum of its parts is nothing remarkable, all in all Log Horizon is a great adventure.
    Log Horizon learned from some of the mistakes of its predecessors in the genre and has taken steps to avoid their pitfalls. I'll deal first with the negatives:

    - The pacing is a bit plodding, as could be expected of a 25-episode season. There is not always a whole lot happening and plot events are generally spread out over several episodes, making the narrative a tad less poignant. It ...

  • Joining my list of Favorites
    This anime was quite thoroughly enjoyable. It properly showed what would happen to a group of players that randomly got sucked into their addiction.

    This will be joining my ever-growing list of favorites and will most definitely be purchased by me when it is released on DVD in the US

  • An Anime worthy of more seasons
    Alright so not to bash people who like SAO but to me that anime was just a rehash of .hacksign with a forced romance (Seriously? Two episodes in and "LETS GET MARRIED!" bs?). When I was all sad and doubtful that all MMO Anime/Manga series would just end up the same way, that is when i found this.

    I read the description and said I would watch it. I've only had to watch 5 episodes to just say ...

  • The MMORPG That SAO Never was, But could've been
    I thought this anime was pretty good compared to others. Cough *cough * Sword Art Online. I like the strategist Shiroe and all the other actions that actually take place in Elder Tale like with Naotsugu and Crusty and the People of the land. This anime was just plainly well thought out and planned. Definitely worth your time to check it out.

    Log Horizon revolves around Shiroe, Naotsugu, and ...

    It's a fun one to watch when there's nothing else.
    I like this anime and the genre of people inside games, but this one takes a turn for the political standpoint with a smart main character rather than a strong one. This is a fun concept but it gets old to me quickly and there seems to be a lack of fighting. In short, I like it, but I hope there's more action in the future.
