Log Horizon: Season 2, Collection 1 (2014/Sentai Blu-ray Set)

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

The online world of Elder Tales in seems peaceful for now, but it is hardly safe. After Log Horizon manages to unity the city of Akihabara, Shiroe sets off on a dangerous mission to explore and discover the new rules of their world. Meanwhile, a deadly player killer stalks the streets and alley ways of Akihabara. As the Goblin armies continue to attack, spies from other countries and cities have infiltrated Akihabara, testing their strengths and weaknesses. Will Log Horizon be able to continue it's peaceful existence for much longer?

Log Horizon: Season 2, Collection 1 (2013) continues this unique saga we covered in the previous two halves elsewhere on this site as, after thousands of players get trapped in a virtual online game world, Shiroe the guild master of Log Horizon realizes the rules have been changed. He and his companions have formed the Round Table Alliance to turn their city Akihabara into a save zone, a place where people can live in peace, but it seems like things never last, as their world continuing to evolve the NPC (Non player characters) are becoming more advance and alive. While the adventurers are immortal, they can hardly be considered 'gods', they continue to search for a way to log out, other forces want what they have discovered/created. Including a different city of adventurers is attacking them too. Shiroe will have to use all his knowledge and ingenuity to protect the citizens of Akihabara.

Would it be heaven or hell to find out you are trapped in your favorite online game and can't log out? Which would be worst the fact, that you can die or the fact that you CAN'T die? This is type of a new genre or anime of being stuck in an online virtual world, if you like series like
Sword Art Online or .Hack, you love this series.

The 1080p 1.78 X 1 digital High Definition image across the episodes is among Sentai's very, very nest playback performers all the way with plenty of demo moments and great viewing all the way. We get Japanese and English lossless DTS-HD MA (Master Audio) 2.0 Stereo mixes that have Pro Logic-like surrounds and sound great for that, very clear and well-recorded, but the Japanese track is a little better. Extras include clean opening and closing animations and trailers.
