wow. this is a certain keeper. The pv even if only consist of the novel illustration looks promising. And it really reminds me of .hack series and thanks for the info. It helps a lot but more info about the plot will help. Though if the author is the same as Maoyuu then I don't probably have any problem on the plot and setting. My problem would probably be that they won't butcher it like what happen on Maoyuu anime.

Well, Log Horizon will have 25 episodes so I think there's quite enough time for the anime to cover everything up to volume 5 =3

Spoiler for images:
Currently, the main manga (the direct-from-novel adaptation) has released its first volume (up to chapter 8), roughly covering the events in the second half of volume one of the novel with minor changes to the story. You can have a look at the first and last chapters over here: http://www.famitsu.com/comic_clear/se_loghorizon/


Aside from this, there are the three side-story manga, each focused on a different character or guild.
  • First, there's "Log Horizon Gaiden - Honey Moon Logs" (ログ・ホライズン 外伝 Honey Moon Logs) that featuring the Crescent Moon Alliance, led by the important supporting characters Mariel and Henrietta. The story appears to deviate from novel canon though, so the reader might want to keep that in mind while reading.

    Chapter 1 trial: http://daioh.dengeki.com/trial/honeymoon.html
  • Then, there's "Nishikaze no Ryodan" (ログ・ホライズン ~西風の旅団~) which features the eponymous guild led by former Tea Party member Soujirou=Seta and his harem.

    Chapter one trial (in pdf format): http://www.fujimishobo.co.jp/sp/2013...izon_trial.pdf
  • Lastly, there's "Class Rep Nyanta - Recipe of Happiness" (LOG HORIZON 外伝 -にゃん太班長・幸せのレシピ-). The main character here is the Werecat Swashbuckler Nyanta (who will be voiced by the excellent Mr Nakata Jouji), and how, through cooking, he spreads happiness to the people around him =3. This manga appears to be set after volume four of the novel, but doesn't have any major spoilers atm afaik.

    Chapter 1 and 3 trial: http://comic.pixiv.net/works/387

Based on the promotional video, the people are trapped in the game by being sucked into it? That's a bit more like .hack//Sign than Sword Art Online. Dampens my enthusiasm a little... I had high hopes for .hack//Sign but the game pretense dissipated fairly quickly and it ultimately felt like a weak fantasy anime instead. Since the game wasn't a virtual reality game it also became somewhat confusing to figure out what all of the characters were seeing and experiencing relative to what was being shown on-screen. Sword Art Online maintained the gaming aspects very well by maintaining health bars and the use of menus throughout, even for things like changing clothes; the pretense of virtual reality gamers trapped in their headsets also made quite an impression. It seemed a bit more "realistic."

All the same, between Sword Art Online and Accel World my interest in series based around a premise involving virtual reality hasn't diminished. I'm looking forward to it.

Nope. For starters, everyone simply respawns when killed.

Marielle is the klutzy-big-sister type so I doubt you'll have Ms Hara oozing sexiness here =3

There's some romance in the story, but most of the time the focus is on team work and interaction. I'm currently at Volume 4 and so far there's only hints of romantic potential between Shiroe, Akazuki and Minori (love triangle! Though Shiroe seems impervious to how the ladies really think of him), Reinecia (not listed here) and Crusty, Rundelhaus and Isuzu.

Also, level 90 isn't too big a deal in the story. It's true that Shiroe, Naotsugu, Akazuki and Nyanta are all level 90 characters/players, but then again so is a good deal of the other players (I counted 17 level 90s out of the 28 characters in Kakkou's cast list). Also, Volume 4 also showed that even level 90 players need teamwork when confronted with large numbers of low~mid tier mobs.

Action-wise, one-on-one fights are pretty rare in Log Horizon. In fact the only one that I've come across so far is found towards the end of volume 1 (and the duelist is naturally not Shiroe). Most of the time there's a lot of negotiations, and the other notable conflict is fought with an army.

I would say it's story-oriented, in a twisted fantasy world with game settings.


Ahhh, when will the next PV come to us~?

Hmmm, the update patch that got the story running brought the level cap from 90 to 100. So there's a number of level 90s running around but whether anyone has made it beyond that is an unknown.

Hmm this seems to be more like .Hack than SAO, but it would be nice to see how the author of MaoYuu handle's this sub-genre. I do hope to read the LN someday.

Still I do like that more authors are delving into these kinds of stories.
