I know what everyone is thinking! Ewwww another Sword Art Online rip off series! I mean sure the whole trapped in another world or video game story has been done over and over again, but I have a feeling that Log Horizon will be about a team of fighters that work together instead of one overpowered guy that can solo the entire game! At least I hope so…
I love these characters!
Like I said at the start yes this is another lame ass trapped in a game world story, but for some strange reason I don’t really feel at there is a “threat” right now because it appeared that the main focus of the first episode was spend on the character interaction and the random comedic moments, like the back and forth chats between Shiroe, Naotsugu, Akatsuki and those two random chicks at the guild hall. That said I don’t think it will be as hilarious as Watamote or Love Lab from the previous season but it still managed to keep things refreshing and very entertaining. So what is the story really going to follow? I suppose we will discover the truth soon along with the real threat element involving the possibility of character deaths or will Log Horizon stay away from all of that? Just kidding I fully expect to see some side characters dying or even some main characters. Besides that I like the character designs by Mariko Ito who worked on Heartcatch Precure, Fairy Tail, Mouretsu Pirates, Death Note, AKB0048 and random episodes of Symphogear. That is an impressive list and I can’t forget to mention my favorite music dude Yasuharu Takanashi who worked on Fantasista doll last season! I love his talent to create some of the best fighting themes in anime and speaking of music? The OP was amazing! I think it might be my favorite so far.
Extra MMORPG fun!
He seems like a cool bro.
I support this ship!
Hnnnggggg best ninja~
Akatsuki can hold her own in a fight!
Well damn that was a very entertaining first episode! I just hope they are able to maintain the level of comedy even though I honestly think that was just their cleaver way to draw people into the first episode or will things continue that way for the next twenty four episodes? Yes this series is going to have twenty something episodes; however I still feel the drama could come out of nowhere with some random character deaths. As it stands Akatsuki voiced by Emiri Kato aka Mayoi Hachikuji and Naotsugu my favorite characters so far and speaking of Akatsuki for a moment, does anyone else feel that we might see some romance developing between her and Shiroe later on in the series? I am only saying that because the ending video kind of shows something between them, but of course that could just be the producers wanting fans to ship them together. So what did you think of this episode and are you going to keep up with it? I suppose we need more episodes before we decide that.
Time to fight the monsters
