Summary: Log Horizon Recap
Characters & Voice Actors
I think it's fair to say, as soon as someone sees the words; 'Stuck' and 'Online World' in the same sentence, they mainly think of Sword Art Online. So it's pretty easy to see why a lot of people would think this Anime would be a lot like Sword Art Online.
However with Log Horizon, that is not the case.
For one, the main character is a realistic gamer, and not some incredibly photogenic Overpowered teenager, who just so happened to practice martial arts when he was younger. Instead, the main character of Log Horizon is an elite couch potato, with a mind made of pure strategy-sauce and a rather lanky and skinny frame, which is great, because most 'elite' gamers are a lot like this in real life.
The supporting characters are a great deal more 'down to earth' than Sword Art Online's cast as well, their purposes as characters are a lot more obvious and the way the Lead's companion's mind's work in tandom with his borders on the scary.
So for the Story I gave Log Horizon a 7:
The Story seems very unmotivated at times, as we all know, in the online world there is always plenty to get on with, even if you are the max level as soon as you begin (for some strange reason). However in Log Horizon the Lead characters just seem to wander around aimlessly looking for things to do and jump on an opportunity to travel halfway across the continent. However there is a lot of hidden potential in the story and it seems a bit too early to give a definitive view.
As for the Art, I gave it a 8:
The Art quality overall is very good, however not eye-meltingly amazing. Although the realistic way everything was presented, did reflect people's expectations of what life would be like inside an online game.
The sound gets an 8:
The theme as well as the OSTs are very nice and give a very iconic gamer feel to the anime, somewhat attracting a gamer crowd to the anime. The theme itself is called 'Database' and was selected for obvious reasons as it works well with the overall story of Log Horizon.
Character design is a solid 9:
The character design is very unique and reflects the kind of people I would expect to see getting trapped inside an online world, doing what I would expect them to do, however no doubt they will add some twist to the characters at a later date.
Enjoyment gets a 9:
I do enjoy this anime and that has nothing to do with the fact I enjoyed Sword Art Online, its just a very well executed anime.
Overall I would give Log Horizon a 9:
Great for Gamers as well as people who don't play games quite so much, however its a little to early to say how the story might pan out. Guess the only thing we can do is wait and see! read more
I have to admit, I was a little disappointed with Sword Art Online. The story of SAO was rushed. People were fighting for their lives. That makes it seem less of a game. As for Log Horizon, I like it more than SAO since the players are able to customize themselves and it seems more like a game rather than a survival match. The characters are impressive with their own clans. The idea of a sub class may make more of a difference than some may expect. Having a sub class that is useless to some other may be useful to other players. The thought of the players being unable to die makes a drastic change in how the players play. People would easily get bored and not care anymore and start to do whatever they want. This leads them off the purpose of the game, but it seems like it fits for an anime like this unlike SAO. read more
You get the same feeling between this animes and its rare i like it.
Both involve players who log into a game, but cannot logout. They have the same situation where the players have to either form alliances or be lone wolves. The main character in one anime is more of a lone wolf, while the other anime features three main characters who form their own alliance.
Although Log Horizon doesn't have romantic moments like SAO but it's the almost the same concept as in millions of people being stuck in an MMORPG. Players in Log Horizon wouldn't be able to die but they have nothing to do, so chaos roams around.
Players are trapped in an MMORPG and must find the cause. In SAO 10,000 players are trapped by the GM while Log Horizon=30,000 players. Sword Art Online is an Virtual MMORPG while Log Horizon just an MMORPG. SAO: the players reacted to their situation while in LG, they are calm and orderly. Both series use the same game mechanics such as guilds, party, raids etc. Log Horizon has magic users-mages/healers while SAO doesn't.....yet. Log Horizon main hero is a strategist mage who keeps his friends safe and depends on each other. Kirito is a solo player who doesn't join guilds yet he does party up. Shiore also doesn't trust guilds yet. But they party up with a small group. Log Horizon does the same too. Log Horizon doesn't have 100 floors like SAO. when a player dies in SAO, they die in real life. While in LG, there is no permanent death. They can re-spawn.
Both anime are VRMMO genre.. Log Horizon is just a good anime with the same genre of SAO... SAO is somewhat horrible.. Well if you love childish romance You'll like SAO...But if you're into more action less romance... Log Horizon is the best.
Sword Art Online is very similar to Log Horizon.
These two shows share almost identical plots, yet they are a bit different.
They are both about a large group of MMO players getting trapped inside of the game. Both shows go into the various social structures built by a MMO’s users, also both shows discuss different styles and preferences of players in the game.
Sword Art Online is a bit different from Log Horizon because it takes place in the future and the game was already virtual reality when the players gets stuck whereas in Log Horizon the players were playing on their PCs before being transported to the game world. Other than that one difference the shows share a similar style of storytelling as the players try to examine the situations they are into. And the main similarity is fight against virtual reality.
If you liked one of those, you might really give a try to another as well, because they are really similar.
Both are about a Fantasy Online Game and players are trapped in them.
Both are about MMO and being trapped inside.
Sword Art Online and Log Horizon are both set in a game-prison atmosphere. Both have hilarious moments and touching moments as well. Sword Art Online is produced with fantastic effects while Log Horizon is just as great with a little more comedy.
-similar plot, stuck in a virtual online massive multiplayer online game
-overpowered main characters
-main character are group is a lone wolf(not joining other guilds)
-similar genres, fantasy adventure, romance shounen
-similar special moves( sword skills for sao, and the magic spells for log horizen)
-similar rpg elements(levels,npcs, PK(player kill), form parties or guilds, items...)
-dis- If you die in SAO, ur dead, If u die in Log horizen, u get revived
The same situation were the characters are stuck in a on-line game.
In both of them the characters find themselves stuck in a game and to get out of it they have to defeat it, in both there are similar concepts and words like "party", "PK's", etc... And in my personal opinion both are awesome.
The same situation were players are trapped inside a virtual game and it's every player for himself.
In both anime, people get trapped in a virtual reality RPG and have to play the rules of the game to survive. Also the main character of both series is pretty sharp when it matters.
The only thing that's similar is that its an MMO other than that its completely different but its so refreshing, I loved it
Virtual reality-style MMORPG games where people cannot leave the game and must adapt to their new world. Both main characters dislike being in guilds for different reasons. They both have a lot of romance which goes along with the action/adventure themes.
Both series include our main characters being trapped in the MMORPG game world, fighting for survival. Although Sword Art Online does include more romance, and by that quite distances the feeling when watching it from Log Horizon, they both still include game-like attacks and are both very suggested if you enjoy combat games in general.
If you like SAO, i would fully recommend Log Horizon. They both take place in the virtual world, but the story line is different. They may seem similar at first, but a lot of people would agree with me they like Log Horizon more. The main difference between the two that people would recognize is that the difference lies within the concept of the game. Instead of a fight for survival, it is a game that makes you have to complete the story. SAO has different players that work to help others, but Log Horizon has clans and su- classes that promotes the game. The sub-classes help with choosing the people they want for their part/guild. As for me I would personally rank this above SAO because of numerous reasons.
Both animes is about being trapped in a VR enviorment(Virtual Reality), in my opinion I think this anime will be very much like SAO. It has the same style and I think that Log Horizon is a bit of a copy of SAO so I think that the both of them will be a lot like each other, some things will be different of course and one of those is that Log Horizon will have magic in it where as SAO didn't have.
They look similar and I think that they will feel similar when watching it. If you liked SAO I think you'll like this as well. And vice versa.
Though because this has not aired yet it is hard to write a recomendation. But I do think that you will enjoy both animes.
Both are about being trapped in a virtual reality game.
The idea that gamers are trapped in a virtual world that is magical and sword based.
In both animes the characters are stuck inside a virtual world.
Just like sword art online they are stuck in the game.
If you imagined it would feel like being trapped in a video game, this series enjoy. since ofresen the chance to experience that sensasion with its protagonists and its fantastic history and animation
Si has imaginado como se sentiría quedar atrapado en un vídeo juego, estas series te gustara. ya que ofresen la oportunidad de experimentar esa sensasion con sus protagonistas y su fantastica historia y animacion
Both of the animes takes place in a game and they're very similar in that way but still they're very different and it won't feel like you're watching the same anime all over again.
Their settings may be different, but the events of both series take place in an alternate world. In that world, they must fight for survival with their tactical minds to put forth strategies. There is fantasy elements present along with action, drama, and comedy.
The main female protagonist from both series is also skilled, independent, and has a talent in fighting. Her relationship with the main male protagonist can be viewed in a variety of ways.
Well Oda Nobuna no Yabou is not base on VRMMO but it has something to do with a game too.. Both anime use the map of Japan as based of it's map.. and Log Horizon seems to have Warring state too by the premier release of map of Elder Tale
Both anime are about "another" world, and both have a good humor.
Oda Nobuna is about historical events, but Log Horizon is about fantasy world.
Both have the characters transported to a different version of their own world. There, they use skills they gained by playing a lot of video games in order to aid in order to live in that world. They involve romance, magic, sword fighting, groups of people fighting (in Oda Nobuna no Yabou it is armies while in Log Horizon it is guilds), etc. They both have some moe character designs for the girls, but it much more apparent in Oda Nobuna no Yabou.
