Log Horizon – Season 2 – Episodes 1-12

After Shiroe's economic wizardry in the first season, Akihabara has a problem. Put simply, the Akihabara round table doesn't have the funds they need to keep things going the way they have been. Shiroe's solution to this problem involves an obscene amount of money, more than possibly exists. Recap Shiroe heads out on the mission without letting anyone know the full scope of his plans. He leaves Akihabara taking only Naotsugu and Regan with him. As a first step he sets up a meeting with Kinjou, a representative of the Kunie clan (also called the Sacrifice clan).  With the help of Regan, the Sage of Miral lake, Shiroe has figured out that clan is responsible for the flow of money in the game/world. The source of the flow of money in Elder Tale is in a place called Depths of Palm, which is controlled /guarded by the Kunie. Shiroe had spoken to Kinjou as a pretense so that he could size him up before trying to get to the "golden whirlpool" that all the money in Elder Tale flows through. Before he leaves, Kinjou tells Shiroe that he'll have to complete a raid in order to get the gold. Most of this setup is explained in the first episode of the season, but it's a little hard to keep track of because the first episode jumps around through past, present and future. Actually there's a few episodes that are out of time or overlapping as they depict incidents that are going on

Log Horizon

Log Horizon is a fantasy/adventure anime produced by Satelight. The show is based on the premise that a large number of people have been trapped inside of a fictional MMORPG. Obviously, there have already been several shows set on a similar premise of animating a virtual world. (.hack// and SAO are probably the first two to come to mind). So, what does this series do to set itself apart? The short answer is: they try to show a different take on the genre. 527

Sword Art Online

Sword Art Online (aka SAO) is based on the light novels by Reki Kawahara (also the creator of Accel World). SAO more than lived up to the expectations I have of this author after how much I enjoyed Accel World. 242
