@takashichea: Well considering how its due out for home relase this year ,I have high hopes / odds for a second season. Tho it never broke top 10 in animation tv rankings that does not keep a series from having a second season. Also considering its got user high rating on Crunchyroll to. Might be a years breath between the two tho. But its art style does lend to speed animation tho.

@Marshal Victory:

Oh yeah I forgot about the promise of season 2. I don't know what was I thinking. I forgot it got licensed by Sentai Film works.

@takashichea: Yup that was big news early on. So its got some juice to it. Just shame its been pigon holed as a SAO clone, which it is not. It is a series i would probly buy on blue ray as well. Its got manga an light novels to so its got some legs to it seems.

23 was pretty good for a set up plot episode. Also nothing good can come from a "Lord Maves"

@Marshal Victory:

Maoyu's lucky protagonist theme rubs on Shiroe. Now, Shiroe has 3 love interests. I see Log Horizon taking Sao's thing. It was interesting to see the enemy is now People of the Land.

@Marshal Victory:

I saw this on Crunchyroll article. Hope you didn't read that article. Can you spot the homage to Maoyu and Sword Art Online in the picture below.

@takashichea: Not really . Seen the one with Man with a Mission as characters in the crowd tho. But not realy seeing it for either Maoyu or Sword Art Online. Girl by the druid doesnt look like a character from Sword Art online to me. Not sure where Maoyu fits either?

Edit went an looked up the article. It may be what they say.. maybe. But if intentional its not as much of a homage as some were leting on. More apt would be a background animator needed designs :/ An no thats not what palet swap means blue is not the opisit of green on the color wheel.

@Marshal Victory:

For Maoyu, it's hard to see the horns against the dark background.

For Sword Art Online, the girl on the right wears similar attire to Suguha.

@takashichea: yeah it might be a homage. Still feel its more a back ground animator needed designs an thought it would be neet. Also They kinda streach it as a color paette swap. Thats not same as color change. Swap usualy in that contect means from across the color wheeel or in reverse. Blue is beside green on the color wheel. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Color_wheel

At best its a drab hard to find homage. At worst its lazy. Good homage sticks out enuff to be seen an not enuff to be sued over. Good Luck Girl! had large amounts of parody an homage that was easy to cach.

Also is site haveing problems. Could not copy an past "Good Luck Girl!" link from fanchise page in explorer or goggle chrome but got it to work in firefox.

@Marshal Victory:

Yeah, they could have done better. I wouldn't have notice it if it wasn't for Crunchyroll. Binbougami ga was fun to watch. I still haven't figure out this homage:

We all agree that the character is from Saint Seiya, but we didn't know which character from Saint Seiya.

@takashichea: left rear is Renji Abarai from Bleach. Not sure on right rear Shiryu colors are off an Seiya Pegasus kinda on few pics fits. So given that the left is Renji with the theme then Shiryu would fit. Firends of the main hero theme going i mean.

24 was good for a second to last episode of the series. It sets up some things for a cliff hanger ending probably. But it looks like the series will get a second season if rumors are true. The series is on its 8th light novel an the author has said it will go 15 or so.

My bet atm is Lord Mavus is the one behind the golbins an fish attacks... I mean hes got fish guilt written all over that face.

also loved the end on this one...

Hello indeed.

@Marshal Victory:

I'm surprised that this series from the author of Maoyu is going for another 2nd season. I wonder why Maoyu ended on 12 episodes. For Log Horizon, fans want to see how it ends. Every story involving folks trap in the video game ends with the people escaping back to the real world.

I was quite puzzled at the lady who loved him from Elder Tales. Have to rewatch that part. I wasn't even paying attention at the time. Doing hw at the same time.

@takashichea: The enchantress seems to be a drope din character. Or from a part i missed as well an i watched this series fairly closely.They wraped it up as a season an left alot open for the next.

Part of the reason this gets a second season is this is not open source like Maoyu became. Plus he can extend the story where as Maoyu seems to be stuck being retold by others in fandom. Tho i would not doubt we can see a second season of Maoyu some time or other. All the hiden character hat tips seem to playfuly poke that direction. But its loved more than it sold it seems :/
