30,000 gamers are stuck in the fantasy game world Elder Tale. Now Shiroe, Naotsugu, and the beautiful Akatsuki must survive.
The Shibuya raiding party begins another assault on the Calling Fortress and manage to break through to the roof where they encounter the raid boss, Taliktan, the Genius of Summoning. After failing to establish dialogue with the monster, it summons swarms of moths which engulf Shibuya and the other player cities. This puts a severe strain on the antenna and Shiroe has the party take the battle into the concert hall below. Despite inflicting a great amount of damage to Taliktan, they are still pummeled by its powerful field attacks. Shiroe raises the stakes with his Full-Control Encounter however, and gives the party a significant advantage in pushing Taliktan to the edge and ultimately, their victory.
In medias res Shiroe, Naotsugu and Akatsuki find themselves ambushed by a pack of briar weasel monsters. Following a game update in the present, a confused Shiroe awakens to find himself in the District of Akihabara inside the Elder Tale MMORPG while donning his in-game avatar. He encounters other panicked players and all find themselves unable to log-out. Accessing his HUD, Shiroe quickly makes contact and teams up with his friend Naotsugu and later, the assassin—Akatsuki. The next day, Shiroe and co. meet with his friend and master of the Crescent Moon Alliance guild—Marielle to compare notes on their current reality. Shiroe and co. learn that the teleportation gates across all the Japanese game districts have been rendered offline in addition to the start of a widespread guild recruitment campaign to deal with the changes of the recent "Novasphere Pioneers" update. After declining Marielle's recruitment offer, Shiroe and co. discuss the possible outcomes of an in-game death and head into the Archive Tower Forests to test the theory where they are ambushed by the pack of briar weasels. After some initial difficulty, they are able to overcome the ambush by naturally moving their bodies to attack rather than relying on their preset attack commands. Elsewhere, a girl called Serara makes a panicked call to Marielle while being chased by two male players as a mysterious figure looks on.
Log Horizon is an imaginative fantasy Anime set in a video game world. More light hearted (and funny) than Sword Art Online, this anime focuses on some of the more interesting aspects of living in a virtual world. NPC's, guilds, and alliances are all explored, more often than not in really funny ways! If you liked SAO (or Anime in general) give this show a shot!
An anime based on players stuck in a game. Although less intense than the more well known SAO, it could be considered to be more real. Instead of being all action and crazy attacks, this game makes use of the more intellectual type of playing. Using cunning and planning, the hero always surprises you with ingenious plans. A really great anime with lots of interesting ideas and a really cool story line.
