Somehow I'm getting a Kyoukaisen vibe from the setting and descriptions. Hopefully this would be as fun as that

I read the spoilers about the protagonist and I'm a little confused. He an enchanter, which has few attack skills and specializes on buffing others, but isn't he supposed to be a loner? His class completely contradicts his personality. How the hell did he get to level 90 like that anyway?

I must confess that I had little interest in this series, but not because I wrote it off as a cheap SAO counterfeit. It kinda reminded me of Senyuu and Xion Saga. After listening to the op a couple a dozen times and scrutinizing the characters, I must bow to its potential.

Ixion Saga DT is one of the best comedy in recent years with it's several jabs at the gaming culture, while under the disguise of a fantasy story.

If this turns out anywhere close to it I would be extremely pleased

Problem is that, as others have said, this probably got greenlit because TPTB wanted to ride on the success of SAO. Yes, the premise is different, but the connection is there. Had that show not been made there would've been nothing else to relate Log Horizon to, except maybe .hack.

The thing is there's generally a gap between when an anime in greenlit and when an anime is officially announced, for all we know it might have been greenlit before SAO aired.

Also this is NHK,it's not like their main goal is to try and sell BDs to otakus

You can argue it both ways. Then again, at the risk of going into particulars, the timing does fit between Log Horizon's first announcement and when SAO finished airing. Even if the project was greenlit months prior, the Aincrad Arc had just concluded and SAO was at the height of its success. So there.

You're right NHK's probably not overly concerned about BD and merchandise sales, with this anime being on the educational channel, no less. Viewership ratings on the other hand... yep.

To be quite honest, I'm just a bit worried if the OP (and all this comparisons and counter-comparisons with SAO) has created too much a hype or not

Truth be told, I don't mind LogHora being compared to .hack, or at least, .hack//sign. One of the things I love about //sign was how it wove personal issues and relationships into the story and imho made it work. LogHora doesn't have //sign's intimate touch imho; ultimately it's more about groups of people working together to live in a strange new(?) world, but a central theme, perhaps best demonstrated by its main PoV character, is that people have to rely and work with each other to get things done; aka no one person/player is an island.

Personally I think it's better to let folks see what's it's like for themselves. If they change their mind and the experience rewards them, then cheers to them! If they still think otherwise... *shrugs*

That makes sense. Come to think of it, I hit level 90 in 3 months in Maplestory while playing 5 other characters. So it's definitely possible.

the only issue when comes to SAO "Linear Storytelling" makes it popular but this one

most likely this one a hybrid due it telling concept how being alive on that world/interactions/character's personality/system of the game

A bit of a weak opening in the first few minutes for me personally. I was expecting something like SAO, where they explained how people get into the game, some short but nice time dedicated to the outside world before they all get trapped inside the game. With this, it starts with them already trapped in the game so it was a little overwhelming at first since a lot was being thrown our way.

I like the characters, they're all very likable, especially the small but cute Akatsuki I'm liking the idea that guilds are building up their forces, as if to say that in the future there's going to be a war over control of the territory in games rather than everyone working together to survive.

If you did that on a 1/1/1, you deserve a statue. Not that I'd be proud of you for that feat

It's awesome. Whenever I try to act in character in a game all I get are odd looks..

Wasn't a bad episode, but if Shiroe adjusts his goddamn glasses one more time I'm going to take them and snap them in half.

(And really, they were taking damage from lv.28 creatures at lv.90?)

Watched this, and I liked how there's a certain awareness of the mechanisms of an MMORPG, as well as the inconveniences that would come with being transported into it. I loved the details of them not being able to adapt to the different body height, or the food being tasteless.

I see that this could be a relatively quiet, but fun, show. I like the idea. I'm just a bit worried by two things: the fact that the author is the same guy from MMY (but then again, I despised SAO yet I enjoyed Accel World, so I don't think that's necessarily a problem), and the fact that I detected a potential harem set up. Akatsuki's been a bit too blushy around the MC, and unreasonably pissed when that other woman jumped at him. Also, too high hot chick/males ratio not to worry a bit. MMY had a very lame harem element too after all, with Hero having both Maou and Knight running after him - and the whole thing was rather ridiculous. But if the harem element does not outgrow its welcome, or if it's just Akatsuki having a crush on the MC, maybe I can manage.

On another note, Akatsuki reminds me a bit of Morgiana from Magi.
