In 2012, the world allegedly comes to an end at the hands of a human-made virus, ravaging the global populace and leaving only children untouched. It is at this time that vampires emerge from the recesses of the earth.
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.
I didn't had too much hope for this one , since it's a mmorpg based anime , I thought it would be a all fights , average story , forced romance kinda anime . But boy o boy was I wrong ? What makes Log Horizon stand above other animes with similar themes (i.e SAO and Accel World)is that it's much more mature , focuses on the story , looks at the events from a strategic point of view , shows us what happens behind the curtains i.e the political side of the whole thing . It doesn't limit itself to some crappy one dimensional forced romance stories . The main character is a master strategist , the characters show enough complexity to keep them interesting .
There isn't any lone wolf mumbo jumbo going on , their is a cohesiveness feel on the show , when it comes to Log Horizon teamwork is the name of the game . All in all , if you are a fan of good old fashioned strategy and action- adventure stories , I suggest you give this a shot .
