Elder Tale is an online fantasy RPG that has become popular worldwide. But when its twelfth expansion package, "Novasphere Pioneers" is installed, thirty thousand players in Japan are trapped inside. Among them is grad student Shiroe, who isn't very good at interacting with others. But to survive in a world full of monsters, he forms a guild called "Log Horizon" with an eclectic group of other players.
After watching Overlord i was hungry for similar material, which Log Horizon is. My expectations were low as i though the graphics was aimed at a younger audience, but boy was i wrong. It was not long before i could not wait to watch the next episode to see what happens. Unlike many other trapped in a MMORPG series this retains the MMORPG element at all times. The players are still, sort of, bound by the MMORPG rules and the tactics remain the same. However the changes are the most interesting elements, especially the people of the land and the new majic created. This will keep you glued to your seat once you get into it, which should be by episode 11, when the people of the land become involved. After that and you will need to resist being watching it. Also, unlike many other anime with the same MMORPG element, this is children safe. No fan base material included, so its safe to allow children to watch.
