|Synopsis: After a series of events, things have finally calmed down a little in the world of Elder Tales, and life in Akiba has gained a certain level of normality. Now that winter is approaching, Shiroe and the other adventurers start thinking about their future goals. Where will they go, what will they do, and what further surprises are in store for them.|
Log Horizon was a series that I found surprisingly enjoyable, especially given the fact that I had certain expectations of it trying to cash in on Sword Art Online’s popularity. While there certainly were some distant similarities, Log Horizon managed to stand on its own two feet with a plot with vastly different pacing. In fact, if I were to make any complaints about Log Horizon, it would be that it was a little too slow, and things only started happening towards the end of the series.
In any case, one particular crisis has been averted; now Shiroe and his companions still need to chase down the mysterious circumstances that led to them being trapped in a world which is exactly the same as the game they once played.
