What started off as what seemed to be a bland-version of Sword Art Online turned out to be one of the hidden gems of anime shows. Log Horizon starts off slow and has the usual setup of a badass main character, but in a slightly different way. It's the way the main character, Shiroe, strategically approaches each situation that makes it an exciting show. Shiroe isn’t the typical shounen main character that powers up throughout the show and then overpowers his enemies. Rather, he’s the guy in the background, the “villain in glasses,” who controls the flow and direction of battle. Overall, Log Horizon read more

Log Horizon. The basic premise, as is evident in the synopsis, centres around a group of players who by some - as of yet - unexplained phenomenon, got stuck in an online massive multi player role playing game.

I can imagine anyone familiar with Sword Art Online doing a double take at this point, obviously comparing the two anime, itching to see how one holds up against the other. SAO lovers and haters alike will travel down this line of thought. To be honest, I was and is one of the latter. Infact, I went into the series hoping to find all I missed read more

A review for Log Horizon, a show that for a long time has been my favourites, and is currently the only show I've ever fully rewatched. The 2nd season is a different story for me, but this is the first one, and this is the Log Horizon I love.
This review includes spoilers from only the early episodes, so I can freely explain the plot of the story.

Story: Plot 4/5, Development 5/5, Total 9/10

In the first episode Shiroe, a gamer that has been playing Elder Tale for soon 8 years finds out he is locked inside his game world. He goes on to find his friend read more

There is a demographic of people who love to dabble in the virtual world of Massively Multiplayer Online games (MMO) to achieve escapism from stress and other struggles that plague their nature. Recently, there has been somewhat of a resurgence of interest for anime fans to watch shows that detail the life of gamers who play these sorts of games, with Sword Art Online being the forefront of it. Asking questions that detail whether the virtual world could become more real to us than what we originally thought of as real from when we were born should be the main theme for these shows to read more

Anime: Sword Art Online
Main similarity is that both anime features living within the game and in real life. There is the idea of being a member of a community and adventure and exploring the world that the protagonists live in. Both anime are special in their own way such as the contrasting protagonists. Both have good art quality as well and if you like action and fantasy anime, these two are definitely recommendable.

Anime: Maoyuu Maou Yuusha
Log Horizon and Maoyuu are two series taking place in a fantasy realm. They both involve war and politics but in a more of a stylistic fashion. Mamare Touno is the original creator for both series and makes their setting come to life with detailed mechanics.

Both series has some action but truly shines in their ability to comprehend and explore their world settings. There is also some drama, comedy, and hints of romance. Maoyuu has more fan service while Log Horizon composes of more comedy.

Anime: Code Geass: Hangyaku no Lelouch
what really hit me was the fact both aren't about one man army protagonist its the other way around it isn't' how to command and support others to win. so basically strategic fighting however since i have only viewed about 6 this is all i can offer in the future i hope to write more in detail so start watching
plus obviously code geass is better but this isn't too bad either :)

Anime: Ookami to Koushinryou
Both animes are in a fantasy setting and dedicates it's time on growth of politics and power through manipulative means. You will not expect much action from neither of these titles, as the engaging dialogues will make up for the 'action'. The action is there, but it isn't dragged out more than necessary. You can also expect military and war will also involved in both these shows.

Anime: Btooom!
The environment that both series take place in has a similar concept but with different circumstances.

As for our main characters, they are stuck in an isolated area from the outside world where they must survive. Btooom! takes more of a serious tone, while Log Horizon is much more lighthearted. However, there are many mechanics behind both series that are explored relating to their circumstances.

The main male protagonists are also gamers with experience in the gaming world.
