Hello Log Horizon fans! These two episodes have been really good at progressing the overall plot and some surprising reveals with Rudy? Just what is he really? Anyway sorry for the delay on these reviews.

    I am expecting a death soon. Very soon. Mwhahhaahah!
    -bleep- dies! Just read some of the LN on a whim and found it to be quite interesting.

    Nyaanta should just drink whiskey with an iceball. Forgot all about *him* until I saw him on the TypeMoon wiki. 666!

    I loved how Isuzu thought of Rudy as a golden retriever–beautiful, eager and dumb. She’s got his number and it won’t be long before she has him wrapped around her little finger.

    It was great to see Minori finally speak up and get the party organized properly.

    I think we all know who Serara is dreaming of while hugging her cat plushie.

    • Foshizzel says:

      Isuzu x Rudy is a good fit! I just hope he doesn’t turn out to be a NPC because that obviously wont work as a OTP T___T

      Hell ya! Minori makes a great leader type IMO <3

      Oooooh I think everyone knows ;D

    Hey now, ImoCho is the best hentai airing this season!

    I think LH is doing a good job keeping it interesting. Having the newbies work out party dynamics was pretty basic, but explained the roles well, and having them become better acquaintances really helped (it really does help to know what the other players can do). I also liked that Isuzu was kind of the one flirting and pursuing Rudy, that it wasn’t just Rudy hitting on her.

    I hadn’t really thought of Rudy being one of the People of the Land, but that’s a possibility, that one of them would like to become an Adventurer instead. But with respect to ‘real’ people and not-real people, I don’t think the distinction carries any weight in the world they’re in. It’s not like SAO (again) where everyone knew they were logged into a computer game. In this one, they’re just inexplicably IN the game. And even in SAO, there was that good advice to live where you are now. That’s what these characters are trying to do. So if the person you happen to click with is an Adventurer or a Person of the Land, I don’t know that it matters much.

    I also don’t know if the ‘losing memories’ thing is that big of a deal as they’re making it out to be. They’ll make a big deal out of it, but it seems like it’s 1) not very pronounced as an effect and 2) similar to what happens naturally: You forget things as you grow and experience more. The person you are changes. I mean, I think the people in this world would not want to die as much as possible, but as far as a death penalty, this seems pretty tame.

    • akagami says:

      Well…. while we did find out People of the Land can be resurrected, it has to be a field resurrection. So if Rudy dies and no healer to raise him, bye bye Rudy, it was good knowing you (´∩`。)

      Wait, maybe the OP shows the future… hm hm (probably not, but would be somewhat amusing if he kicks the can).

    • Foshizzel says:

      moCho is the best hentai airing this season!

      The best censored hentai ever created~

      That is what I LOVE about LH is it still remembers to include the game mechanic stuffs unlike a certain MMORPG anime, but I suppose that is a personal thing! Anyway I loved the group stuff.

      Yeah! I never thought about it either until recently because of all the player x NPC chatting that has been going on for a while now and it that makes Rudy the perfect choice.

      You don’t think that is bad? I mean look at Valvrave for instance eventually it becomes bad to have your memories wiped out, but yeah I guess that is different than Log Horizon.

      • Highway says:

        The problem with Valvrave was that it used mimetic concepts (memories), which are by definition spreadable, and consumed them as some sort of power source. The implementation here is completely different, in that what’s happening is a scattering of information, and then a reconstitution. It’s similar to the same thing if you encode a video, then encode it again, and again and again and again. Every time, you lose some of the information.

        While that loss is lamentable, because it’s always bad to lose information, there are two factors that somewhat mitigate it. First, We’re not seeing people die a whole lot, and they were talking about the rate of degradation being very slow, at least it seemed like they were. And second, if this is over a long enough period of time, then natural memory loss would be roughly analogous. So it’s hard to view it as a huge tragedy. It’s something to keep in mind, that maybe they don’t want to go raid stuff the way we do in WoW: Throw yourself at it again and again and again. But I don’t think it’s something that should paralyze anyone with fear.

    log horizon is getting better and better, i liked the development of the apprendice party, looks like the next episode is going to be fun*0*
    and
    thinking on it…Is Rudy a program? that would make sense, since he couldn’t be put on the freindlist…or is his death coming like the OP showed…

    • Foshizzel says:

      Yeah it does continue to get better with ever episode~

      I think it is a possibly that Rudy is an NPC that wants to be a hero and it could explain why he acts a bit crazy than the average player and if anyone would die I guess it would be Rudy…

    oh hey look i’m in the top 15 *0*

    • Highway says:

      Congrats! I freed up a spot for you (a year ago) when I became a contributor. ;)

      Thanks for reading and commenting!

      • AllenAndArth says:

        when? where?
        but, thanks anyway HW
        and
        AH, HA! got it now what you wanted to see…i’m pretty slow on things like these aren’t i?

      • BlackBriar says:

        And you were merciless as a commenter when you arrived!! Other than the posts, you hold part of the reason for where I am now with your conversations, the other goes to skylion and the rest goes to everyone else.

    • AllenAndArth says:

      my first post got sent to hell…nevermind that, the Sahagin invasion wasn’t that much of a surprise after spending so much time seeing the OP…i wonder if Rudy is going to die, Serara is really cute sleeping, by the way: Look, it’s the plot!
      finally it seems that now we can really see a plot!

    • BlackBriar says:

      Hey, yeah, I noticed that. You’ve come a long way. Welcome to Metanorn’s Blacklist!!! And the bar gets raised even higher the more people reach the top 15.

    • akagami says:

      Congrats! I was racing Highway at one point, but took some time off and came back and went (ノ゚0゚)ノ~ (o-。-)尸

    • Foshizzel says:

      Good job!!

  6. BlackBriar says:

    All that was talked about in the conversation felt too real to believe that Elder Tale is just a game. I’d like to see who was behind its development. Like if World Fraction is a spell to grant a world changing wish, isn’t there some high price to use it? I mean, it’s been used three times, bringing new anomalies every time.

    Shiroe is very astute verifying the time differences between the game and the real world. Had I been in his place, something like that would feel so frivolous to bother with. In Accel World, the time gaps were so big that a handful of hours would become a matter of weeks in the game and the players’ perception would be ridiculously lax.

    So memories are lost every time a player dies. What, does the player die for real when there are no remaining memories? I got some serious Valvrave vibes with that revelation. But there’s a real threat to it considering you’re stripped of items upon reviving which shows the player is indeed on the decline.

    Side note: It seems that even when Log Horizon finishes its run, we won’t be escaping the game anime trend for some time since Sword Art Online was announced with a second season to air sometime this year and it was confirmed on New Year’s Eve after the release of Sword Art Online: Extra Edition. The arc Sword Art Online II will be focusing on is titled “Phantom Bullet”.

    • Foshizzel says:

      Yeah episode fourteen definitely makes you feel that Elder Tale is another world and not a game! I was thinking the same thing but you can also consider the “world fraction” as patches for a MMORPG adding in new things as it goes along? I assume the next use of that spell will be used to return the players to the real world or restore their memories.

      Shiroe is a great character I love watching how he deals with things instead of freaking out he remains calm and thinks things through.

      Right the memory loss is very Valvrave-ish

      Yeaaahhhh SAO2 I don’t know what to think about that everywhere I go people say GGO is the best freaking arc ever created for SAO but I read a few chapters of that and was not all that impressed…I guess we shall see.

      • AllenAndArth says:

        i was pretty surprised by that too, normally these kinds of anime never explain the situation from the NPC’s point of view or what happend to the world when players entered
