Speaking of episode counts for fantasy anime (though, you could probably argue the genre, the network might suggest it's "educational"), NHK has posted an English facts sheet for fall's Log Horizon 2 with a 25 episode count listed.
They describe it:
Veteran gamer Shiroe and other players have been trapped in the world of the online game Elder Tales for six months. The once chaotic city of Akiba has regained its everyday hustle and bustle following the formation of the self-governing organization Round Table Meeting. The earthlings, who are originally from the game world, have gained the trust of Shiroe by waging a defensive war against the Goblins in Zantleaf Region. This has led Princess Rayneshia of the Cowen family, the highest-ranking Earthling Aristocrats, to live in Akiba.
It's almost winter, and the Adventurers are thinking about what they're going to do and what their goals are in this other world. Will they remain in Akiba or go to the city of the West? Or will they travel to the land of the North or another faraway country? The opinions of the Adventurers begin to diverge. What adventures await the members of the Shiroe team in this second series of Log Horizon?
Last month, an NHK blog post reported that the series returns October 4th. Also the cast adds Tsubasa Yonaga as the Kunie Clan's financial mastermind Kinjō, Rie Murakawa as DDD intelligence strategist Riese and Yukiyo Fujii as the Log Horizon guild's self proclaimed galactic idol Tetra. Yun*chi performs new end theme "Wonderful Wonder World*."

Hyper in-depth analysis of the war scenes in Log Horizon (comparisons to WW2 formations, etc.) blows my mind https://t.co/DSQcOI6A1o— Digibro (@Digibrah) September 19, 2014
