YEAH WE ARE READY FOR THE PUNCH LINE! JUST LIVING IN THE DATABASE WHOA OH
^They actually put English subs nice.

The HUD looks kinda confusing. I guess the Wizard and the tank are friends IRL.

Game as reality, and cannot logout... that really sounds like SAO... or .hack.

lol @ Maeno-san's character. And Terashima-san's character is calmer in this. Oh, wow @ the transformation. I like previous assassin form more though. + two ladies with different tastes + group.

And the battle... actually using the body instead of command.

Nice intro. ep. I hope it would get more interesting, which at the end might be showing it. I like ED more than OP.

Warming-up episode. I liked the post-apocalypse setting with the Middle-Ages-esque atmosphere of Akiba town. Wonder if they have maid warriors. I may keep watching though the execution and character design suggested their target audience was very young people who liked Phi Brain, Mushibugyo and such.

Oh God, Akatsuki was adorable and badass same time. I could get used to this. The OP song was okay I guess but yeah, there are some SAO vibes. Transformation was decent and overall setting is alright.

I found the first episode to deliver the premise quite well. Some of the beasts/enemies also seemed dangerous enough.

That was one great episode, hoping for the story to focus on gaming and strategy.
i am hoping the character development must focus on the main cast.
No sexual monster like tentacles please.
Few romance and more action please.

although i love it!

Loved it especially the soundtrack wherein you can feel it like a real MMORPG because you will be familiar to those.
A few comedy has in it and yet need to reduce despite that when it become serious you will really see the intense of the story
Can't wait for the subbed version. Anyone knows who will pick this up?

So happy I could cry. Log Horizon might be the MMO anime I've always wanted but never got ;_;

Lovely start with charming characters, warm colors and a story that doesn't take itself too seriously while still being serious. If anything the perv jokes in the start were a bit meh, but hopefully that won't be a big part. Besides, it was fairly innocent anyway.

So happy.

So very happy.

Log Horizon didn't suck.

Please continue to be awesome.

It's looks more like a fantasy than a MMO game.
They didn't show the reality at all, if this were virtual reality game or if it they real body.
I can only guess it's all virtual reality.

Very happy to see this is going to follow a group dynamic instead of just one MC. Also glad to see the feel is very different than SAO. I hope as the show progresses the constant complaining about it being a SAO clone goes away, because it seems like a fun show so far. :)

Wow this was a good first episode, I'm liking that OP song, and it's awesome that MC is working in a party instead of being a lone wolf. I like how they incorporated a lot of stuff from actual MMOs as well, this show is going to be a lot of fun come later episodes.

Alot better then my initial expectations and within the first episode I have decided its a better first episode then SAO even though SAO's first ep was the best ep in the show, I like how it doesn't take itself too seriously and seems like a fun anime.

I believe SAO wasn't the first one to incorporate "real world inside virtual reality", but I believe we'll see a lot more of those shows after all the success it had.

That being said, the show is not bad, it has more comedy bits than SAO did and seems to be about a group instead of a lone warrior.
However, it's impossible NOT to draw comparisons since they're oh so similar in its premise. At least for now.

Nice start. Quite a big difference from SAO.

It was nice seeing how the characters reacted to being trapped. Unlike there where 90% were shocked and didn't do a thing here, they immediately gathered and started to take action.

The main characters calmly analyzing the situation and starting with exchanging info was pretty awesome hehe. Loving all 3 of them.
Shiro is pretty cool. Naotsugu is fun and Akatsuki is cute cool. Nice team.
Shiro's past seems interesting too. Can't wait to see more of that.

Lol'd at Mari hugging even Naotsugu XD...Even an open pervert like him got shocked hahaha
And a lolicon secretary chasing after Akatsuki XD

Also, I'm not saying it's rushed. Loved the pace but I think it's going pretty damn fast here...Already talked to a guild and met up with all their friends...etc
I wonder what happens nxt...this is a 25 ep series after all. Can't wait to see what the plot is.

Loved the ED...The OP was nice too.

Love that OP haha, it wasn't a bad start but I did feel it should have shown some pre-"apocalypse" scenes, just to get more development rather than jumping straight into the game.

This is similar to SAO in regards to premise, I hope it does a better job and that a lot of tension and drama is to come.

<3 Akatsuki btw

Amazing!! Easily looking to be one of the best of the season!!

I love how adventurous it is!

This is already geared up to be way better than SAO because it's not going to be all about one character the entire time

This might end up as the best MMO trap anime there is!

Akatsuki is cute, and the other two leads aren't terrible. However, the show isn't setting a high bar for itself, I'm not too impressed by this introductory episode. It lacks any stakes or tension, the first episode of SAO at least had that much (disregarding the storm of shit that followed, of course).

Not bad ... not what I expected but that's not a bad thing.

Sort of disappointed with the cliché. Also the directing, both in terms of animation and storyboarding, is pretty lackluster.

0 tension.

We'll see if this is any good. So far, it doesn't take itself as seriously as SAO did, which is a good thing, but I'm not a huge fan of the characters that are just too stereotypical. I hope they'll have more depth.

Been waiting a long time for this and thus my expectations were rather high. I'm glad to say that the first episode lived up to those more than enough !

There was a nice flow through the whole episode. Introducing the characters, the world and what seems to going on are perfectly timed.

Looking forward to the next episode, I don't think I can wait that long ! :')

In some circumstances, Naotsugu's head looks smaller compared to his body size and I found that funny. The fighting scenes were cool but they kinda felt limited. If it only has the same production value Sword Art Online got during its air.

And we've got a badass loli and I found her cute. <3 Akatsuki

The Op was raped. Engrish..."Database, Database WOAH"

Lol, nice OP I guess.

Looks like it could really be the best VRMMO trap anime there is though. I mean, doesn't look like it'll be all episodic like SAO, or as slow and boring as .hack

I must say I quite enjoyed this episode! Not my favorite premiere of the season but a really solid episode getting us through some introductions of the main cast/world

The main characters we were introduced to all of their own quirks that people can like or dislike. Naotsugu is more on the subdued side but not to the point he comes off come off as a typical edgy loner type which I'm glad. Tankbro seems like he'll be pretty fun to follow also

Maybe it's my personal bias for those roles in RPGs/MMOs coming through but it's a nice twist that the protagonist is a support caster instead of a front line DPS

Fall is probably my favorite season of the year because of how many 2cour anime we get and I'm glad Log Horizon is one of them this time after seeing this premiere

Hmm. Not bad for a start. Shiroe seems a powerful character, he is the leader of the legendary party! Wow.

The OP sounds good, and the ED was nice to hear. Akatsuki is cute too. ^^ My little purple assassin.

Anyways, will watch for more. I hope this demonstrates more of the MMORPG world compared to SAO.

Looks promising, but i don't think it will be as good as SAO. But i could be wrong. But so far i like Kirito more than Shiroe, But Akatsuki is on par with Asuka

Compared to a previous similar show called Sword Art Online,
The animation seems to be a step down and less serious or more relaxed

It's nice to see how things are explained and the interaction between the other characters
Shiro sure is the brain of his new formed group

I loved SAO, the anime even made me read the light novels. Hopefully Log Horizon can do the same ^^

Started off slow, but going by the opening song and the last two minutes of the episode looks like a lot will be going on. I'll be watching this one all the way through.
