Erik Scott Kimerer,
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 went in expecting just another fighting an enemy for a few episodes, then winning and fighting the next one.
But it expands so much on the world, and the story is really about making this new world a better place, stopping guilds who treat people unethically, and helping those in need.
The characters really grow on you, and they do a good job of setting the tone of the situation. Lots of serious parts, but also times where I genuinely laughed, something a lot of shows don't seem to do for me anymore.
I got hooked on this show really quickly, and I hope it continues to grow!
