    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 ...

  • 4.1 Stars - A Pleasurable Show You Can Sit Back and Enjoy
    Storyline 3.9/5
    I really like how this story focuses a lot on teamwork and game-play. The battles and in-game experiences were really well-thought out. However, many of the times, it doesn't feel like they're stuck in the game, probably because there's no sense of urgency. No one mentions much about how to get back to the real world. They just seemed to have accepted it, and that really ...

  • A very pleasant experience
    I found this anime after I watched SAO, and I must say that I enjoyed it. Sure, its not as good, but it is more interesting than most. The art is nice, the plot eventful, the characters interesting, and the story is overall pretty interesting. I even went and read all the light novels, since I was tired of waiting for the next episodes.

  • Strategy At It's Best
    This anime is just simply amazing. It has similarities to Sword Art Online, but it's honestly a completely different anime. I am really hoping they will continue the anime because I am extremely interested on how the characters will evolve while being in a world where they cannot die. How will this affect their lives and change there characters will be very interesting to watch.

  • A fun and entertaining anime
    I went into watching this after having already watching SAO and thought that I would be getting something similar to it. I can say I was happily mistaken. The only real similarity between Log Horizon and SAO is that the main characters are trapped in a game.
    Since I am not sure if this will be a big spoiler or not I will just put the alert in just in case.

  • I love it! A must for any MMO fan
    This anime accurately captures what it would be like to legitimately be inside of an MMO. The characters all have their little quirks to them, but they have a fullfulling development and nobody's past or present is overly dramatic. The lead character is very analyzing of his surroundings and of people, and you get almost a death note / code geass feel to the politics and strategies involved

    The ...

  • What SAO never was..
    This is a beefed up version of SAO. It goes into politics and economy and diplomatic relations. Everything about it is more indepth than SAO was. It is still a very solid anime even when not comparing it to SAO. A must watch, though it is slow at first
