Season 2 episode 1... argh!!! its Fairy Tail season 2 new animation feelings again. Sure hope this gets better illustration wise the sharp corners on the characters are distracting. Tho 1st seasons style was something to get used to as well.

So its a meta game solution to a rent problem. Many mmoprgs have money sinks. Things to burn your hard earned gold an plat on. Housing in some games is so not worth that kind of money sink. But the in game buildings they control are important to their towns well being. While I do like the gold to the reborn souls in game lore, ok I like that a lot, its a story hook thats unheard of. Well least by me. Its kind of rob the game to pay the game type thing. Go after the source that gives the reborn souls coin.

Tho the end seemed odd they both died an we did not see it? Flashback flag right their for the next episode.

Watched the first episode of the 2nd season.

It had the same Maoyu/Spice and Wolf talk about money. I never seen an MMORPG inspired anime adaptation of a light novel goes into so much detail about money and mechanics. That's Log Horizon for you. I was lost in the story after season 1. All I remember from season 1 was Goblin and fish invasion.

@Marshal Victory:

I haven't played a MMORPG game. I was expecting new character designs. It was mostly the same except with minor detail differences.

@takashichea: Its some one aping the same style yes. More sharp angles an less thick lines. The end of the 1st season had a southern guild try to take over the city during the festival. Or rather some NPCs were behind it with player characters hired as their bodyguards.

Time will tell if this direction will work. But the art aped style I would have rather a new illustration style than a copied one. It has the look but not the look if that makes sense.

2nd season episode 2 was a great depiction of what happens to raid guilds. They grow to big they grow bored an people quit raiding.

We got more action in this week's episode. It felt more of a summary or a play by play commentary on how raids are conducted. I see Naotsugu is developing an affair with our healer while it's Christmas festivities with Log Horizon and other guilds on the other side.

@Marshal Victory:

Me, too. The animation wasn't that different compared to how Bridge and A-1 Pictures for Fairy Tail. I'm still not used to FT.

@takashichea: I still have not adjusted to Fairy Tail new illustration style. But ya both new copies of older styles are off in similar ways. Both have more thin lines an sharp corners it seems. Difference is with LH2 you have less older characters on screen to mentally compare each week it seems. Tho when the blond that is running the town while devil with glasses is gone an has some screen time, it sticks out more to me.
