    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.

    A Familar Setup That Lacks the Draw of Similar Shows
    Log Horizon is a story about a group of people who get stuck in an MMORPG. Sound familar? It should because the premise have been used repeatedly like in .hack and Sword Art Online and with that plot device being used to death there is little else to draw you into the show.

    First off there is the cast of characters which is pretty vast. The abundance of cast membrs however cannot make up for ...

  • Log Horizon is solid
    I'm not an anime freak, but this particular show was enthralling. It has nice animation, but also understands the way an MMO is played. At times it was very slow, but not because of filler. There practically is none. My only other tiff is that it randomly skips ahead without telling you or establishing a time shift. It's hard to explain, but they would resolve issues from a previous episode and ...

  • Truly a great show about MMOs.
    Log Horizon will always be compared to Sword Art Online. I have not seen the latter, but I can say this, I will compare SAO to LH, and if it is half as good then I'll be hooked. Log Horizon just makes you feel that world they are sucked into. It is exactly how I'd imagine the world being if I got sucked into an MMO. The characters Shiroe and Akatsuki are just amazingly cute with their ...

    Epic fantasy tale that feels very different from the usual
    This is what stories about being trapped in a MMORPG should be like. It's like an epic fantasy tale yet because of its premise feels completely new and refreshing. There is great world-building here with a *smart* cast of characters and things are not always as they seem. You might not even look at a MMORPGs the same again.

    How the players deal with living in their new reality is fascinating, ...
