Log Horizon : Surprisingly Good
I didn't had too much hope for this one , since it's a mmorpg based anime , I thought it would be a all fights , average story , forced romance kinda anime . But boy o boy was I wrong ? What makes Log Horizon stand above other animes with similar themes (i.e SAO and Accel World)is that it's much more mature , focuses on the story , looks at the events from a strategic point of view , shows us what happens behind the curtains i.e the political side of the whole thing . It doesn't limit itself to some crappy one dimensional forced romance stories . The main character is a master strategist , the characters show enough complexity to keep them interesting .
There isn't any lone wolf mumbo jumbo going on , their is a cohesiveness feel on the show , when it comes to Log Horizon teamwork is the name of the game . All in all , if you are a fan of good old fashioned strategy and action- adventure stories , I suggest you give this a shot .
