Log Horizon – 05

Log Horizon (2)

Serara is the catch of the day!

spring13-jrowAnd Fosh is back with me to mini-talk this ep. of Log Horizon. There’s just over a week left to PS4 launch day, and I am waiting as patiently as I can, playing FIFA a bunch and catching up on some backlogged anime.

 —————————————

spring13-foshThanks again Jrow for covering Log Horizon last week! Thankfully I am back and we will jump right into this slice of life-ish episode with Serara stealing the show with her super moe powers! Seriously she reminds me a lot of Yayoi from Smile Precure, but anyway I hope you enjoy our minitalk.

Shiroe needs time to think about Serara and Akatsuki.

    Nyanta Kirei eating is much cuter.

    I was really surprised they solved the problem of the food not tasting good. I was thinking it would just be a running joke, based on the first three episodes. Now it seems like it must be some sort of plot point.

    • Krono says:

      I don’t think it is a plot point. It is just another way for them to point out that this is a game so you can not do certain things without the prerequisite skill. If this show was prone to filler a side episode about a cafe or something could happen but I doubt this series would do something like that.

    • Kyokai says:

      I’m reminded of Sims and how food would usually burn and/or some kitchen appliance going poof whenever the characters had low cooking skills.

  3. BlackBriar says:

    Note to self: When getting trapped in a virtual world, make sure you have someone around who can cook. They’re just as handy as healers. I expected someone like Naotsugu to pig out when the food had some taste but was shocked to see people full of pride as Shiroe and Akatsuki shamelessly joining the fray. So, thanks to Nyanta, now there’s a cooking sub class. It makes one wonder what the exact number of sub classes is in Elder Tale.

    Naotsugu is a glutton for punishment and doesn’t learn from his mistakes. If you want to make childish, perverted or unrelated remarks about anything, make sure Akatsuki is not within a thousand yards of you. There will be consequences if the warning is not taken seriously.

    My theory is, before the Apocalypse took place, the game designer altered some of the coding and the NPCs were modeled after actually human beings because normally, they would’ve only had preset dialogues and functions and be around without names. Shiroe’s analysis on them has truth to it. After what has happened, he and other players seem almost like immortals since they can die and revive as if nothing happened.

      So I just need to be friends with folks thtb have ppl who can cook. Gotcha. (though I have a feeling I will most likely end up in some bad guild if I got stuck in MMO)

      FYI. there a spin-off manga frm the viewpoint of those Ppl of the Land (IIRC) where they noticed tht be4 those Adventurers weren’t paying attention to them.

    • HannoX says:

      Don’t be too hard on Shiroe and Akatsuki pigging out. You try eating tasteless mush for a few days then see how you react when presented with lots of tasty food. If they decide to start their own Guild Nyanta’s cooking will be a powerful recruiting tool. On top of that he’s a good hunter able to supply fresh meat for his cooking. With her maid skill if he and Serara retired from adventuring and opened an inn it’d be a big success.

      One minor thing is really starting to bug me about this show. Notice how all the powerful characters are Level 90? How come no one’s Level 91 or 87 or 88?

      • Highway says:

        Level cap. Very common feature in MMO’s (WoW’s level cap is 90 right now as well). You end up with most of the people at the cap, because it’s actually hard to play for any length of time and not gain levels, but there’s no more to gain once you hit the cap.

        We’ll see if something comes up where they find they can level up by doing things. If anyone’s going to, it’s going to be our adventurers, because they’re the ones actually going and doing stuff.

        • HannoX says:

          A level cap does explain why no one is more than Level 90, but just for a bit of variety there should be people almost at the cap, but not quite. Instead what we’ve gotten so far is people at the cap and others way below it. Seems like lazy writing. Like I said it’s a minor point, but I’m starting to find it annoying.

          • Highway says:

            Not really. In WoW, there are almost no characters that are anywhere close to 90 but are not 90. There ARE characters that are way below it (and in LH really we have a sample size of Serara, so we can’t really say that’s representative). The majority of actively played characters in WoW are 90, because if you’re leveling a character, you’re leveling it to get to the cap.

            Elder Tale is a mature game. It has people who have played for years. It has people who have quit the game but decided to try out the new expansion. So most of the people that we see are going to be at the cap. That’s actually realistic for any MMO.

            • Joojoobees says:

              I agree. You see the same thing in LOTRO. Lots of people start new characters (perhaps as alts) and never quite level them up past the mid-point, but above that there are very few characters until the cap, where the numbers suddenly explode.

  4. Kyokai says:

    Nyanta is one of Jouji Nakata’s best variety roles to-date. Man, this dude makes him the coolest cat on-screen, even more than Puss-in-boots in some aspects (badass swashbuckling). Man, respect for this veteran seiyuu.
