I originally picked up Log Horizon when the first episode aired, but decided not to keep watching. Why? I'm not sure. But fast forward a few months and I'm moving house and am looking for some shows to stock up on for the four days I'd be without internet, and I decide to give Log Horizon another try.

My initial dismissal of the series was a mistake. After the huge disappointment that was Sword Art Online, I was worried that this would also fail to live up to any expectations that I had, but after watching the first handful of episodes back-to-back, I started to think that Satelight had really created something that was worth watching.

Log Horizon tells the story of Shiroe, a veteran player of MMORPG Elder Tale, as he wakes up after the release of the brand new expansion pack to find this his reality (along with everyone else who was playing the game at the time) has been switched for that of the game world. He meets up with friends Naotsugu and Akatsuki, and together the three of them adventure and work to bring some order and normality to the world which has fallen into chaos.

Touno Mamare's world is incredibly rich and intricate, and has been masterfully translated to screen by the writers and artists alike. The writers have managed to strike a pleasing balance between the comedy and the political drama which it helps to break up. The series is notably lacking in action, with several episodes not containing any action sequences at all, but it's abundantly clear that the point of the series isn't to present an MMORPG in anime format, or to thrill the viewer was large show-piece battles, but to present a world which is believable (and, to the characters in the story, every bit as real as the one they come from) and characters who are entertaining to watch.

I recommend this series wholeheartedly, and look forward to when the second series airs this Autumn.

Recommendations

Both feature a group of people, who end up in a fantasy world without knowing how it happened. They try to adapt to the new environment and play by the rules of this new place.

Both feature an RPG game which due to some circumstances left the players stuck in the game.

it has such good potential to be an ongoing shounen anime like Naruto/One Piece/ Fairy Tail
sooo good and such a good plot, with great characters and an interesting animation style, not too new nor too old, like a good old school animation.
Loved it and cant wait 2 see second season
