Log Horizon – Episodes 8 & 9


I'm just a normal guy, chillin' on the internet in search of a place that I can call my sacred hang. What more can I say?

    I see the reviews for log horizon are a bit late. its is indeed a very griping 2 episodes wish I could get the opinions from episode 10 but I will wait. I highly doubt that adding a romance other then the VERY subtle one between Akatsuki and shiroe (if you haven’t noticed it I don’t think it will be that big of a deal at least in this season, PLEASE OH GOD MAKE A SECOND) because quite frankly I feel its doing well as it is and its already running out of room for this season with what it has already decided to take on. They provided a perfect first hand account of shiro’s amazing strategies that made him famous, I would have liked a little more struggle from the guilty parties he was fighting as well but again with time factor I understand why they didn’t. that’s about all I can say now without spoiling some of the impact of the next episode. the only thing I can say is that with every episode I feel more and more like this anime NEEDS a second season. if it gets that second season I might actually call this a master piece of animation brilliance but that’s too far in the future for me to honestly say right now.

      Yeah, sorry about the review’s lateness, things just kept getting in the way and piling up, and before I knew it two weeks had passed… But I digress. And yeah, you’re right – there’s no space for any real romance in this season – that’s just my own little selfish desire, however I do think it’d be nice to see some in the future.

      Log Horizon fixes all of the problems from Mamare Touno’s last work, Maoyuu Maou Yuusha, but it still lacks a certain finesse required for it to be “a master piece of animation brilliance”. They’re slight niggles is all, the OST, for example, being rather lackluster, and the design itself appearing bland. In my personal opinion, it’s not the most compelling show, but there is still some potential just waiting to be unlocked and I know that… but again, that’s just my personal opinion.
