Picture: A+ Sound: B+ Extras: C- Episodes: A-

The game Elder Tales has become a online virtual reality world full of adventure and danger for millions of fantasy role players, but in one second something goes wrong and now hundred of thousands of players are unable to log out and find themselves trapped in this virtual world. Shiroe is a veteran player and realizes, things are no longer a game and the 'rules' of the world have changed. Between the players, adventurers, events and monsters Shiroe now works to build a city where they can all live, Akihabara.

After thousands of players get trapped in a virtual online game world, Shiroe realizes it is no longer a game, but it is now their world and their reality, and if they are to find a way out they must all work together. But the main problem is ...that the people aren't united. After being trapped online, some players gave into despair, other began bullying and taking from the weaker characters. Soon, it becomes evident both game and players are no longer following the rules, and there is a new force in Akihabara, Log Horizon.

If you like the animes like .Hack and Sword Art Online then you will love Log Horizon. It seems to be a new genre of anime where characters get trapped online in a virtual world. What sort of character would your virtual you be? And what happens if THAT is your new life? If forces us to at least think (if not ask) if the fantasy/virtual/online you is just a real as the real you.
