Akatsuki and Izusu's angst combined with Williams speech episode, bad animation and stupid pacing killed season 2. It's amazing how bad this has become. Even moreso with the extreme lack of Crusty and Kanami's crew only getting one episode. I hope this never gets another season.
In order to sell your light novel you need a pseudo harem even if it's not. See Chaika,Twintails. Tokyo Ravens, Yet the author fucked up massively by having that Shiroe boon be such a massive part of their characters. What else can we talk about Akatsuki,Nuaha,Henrietta and Minori besides how hot they are for Shikun? It makes them boring and uninteresting which makes their screentime even more shitty by proxy.
They'd only do that if there's a market for it that would make money though, and I'm not sure the Log universie is quite that popular to sustain the budget of multiple shows, but I could be wrong there.
More likely than not, it becomes the long, long wait for more material and the hope of an S3.
>They'd only do that if there's a market for it that would make money though
You realize that Log Horizon runs on the equivalent of PBS and is supported by taxpayer dollars right? It's the same channel that let that fucking puzzle show have three 2 cour seasons. Profitability is not all that important.
It's really sad. I really do enjoy Akatsuki. And i do enjoy the moments of Henrietta kidnapping her and call her cute. (Those are funny)
But my stomach really flipped when I realized that Henrietta has a thing for Shiroe-whatshisname. It's like an alert of harem-war that may happen and that kills the whole story.
I mean, The the whole server is in the middle of a war (as far as i can remember). I'd hate for someone to get killed and lose their memory over some stupid jealousy shit.
This stuff was all anime-original, right? It's noticeable because the writing quality was substantially worse. For example, they put all the main characters in the same raid party even though it makes fuck-all sense.
The anime is past the written novels, including Mamare's web writings.
>Sending scrubs to end game raid zone
>When they are lvl 50
What the fuck. Who is writing this shit? There's no reason for them to be there, I'm sure there would have been hundreds of better choices, but no, it has to be the scrubs.
>This stuff was all anime-original, right?
Only in the sense that Mamare is telling them what to do, but has not written it yet.
Or they could be using the bodies they have available, you probably bitched about the Watermaple raid being all girrrrrls without knowing there was a reason for it.
>They didn't fall asleep so we chose them hurr durr
So every single adventurer over lvl 50 except the raid group fell asleep? Weren't there thousands of adventurers in Akihabara? I'm pretty sure there should be atleast some other choices than the scrubs. And if those other adventurers had "more important things to do" that's a shitty reason. Face it, this episode was bad.
Hey, this is from Japan, right?
How come there's no catgirls?
That he was a Ghostbuster this episode makes him even more moe
Coppelia was added to Mamare's website today.
>So every single adventurer over lvl 50 except the raid group fell asleep? Weren't there thousands of adventurers in Akihabara?
A large Moth monsters sprays its golden sparkles rained down all over the land of Yamato.
Coming into contact with the moths or its sparkling light causes people to lose MP. All landers touched by the light fell into coma.
A day has passed since the emergence of these monsters.
Nyanta leads the children to go help the comatose Landers in the north-east section of Akiba.
To the east of Akiba is a ruin called the Metropol loop bridge, which Shiroe suspects it to be part of what used to be the Tokyo freeway.
After the Catasrophe, Akiba residents worked to maintain the loop.
Black Sword Knights cleared out the Hill Giants, Honesty and 8th Shopping District members removed the rubble and cleared the road, making it functional.
It became an integral part of the Landers travels to Akiba.
Nyanta and the kids help the unconcious landers in the area.
They even spot a recon from somewhere flying over their heads on a Giant Owl.
As they work, the kids wonder about Shibuya.
(rather long paragraph of what Minori and Tohya considers definition of "adult". Whatever.)
Duke Sergead apparently has fallen to the sparkling dust as well.
They are worried, but the comatose state doesn't pose an immediate danger.
They wonder if the moths will come again tonight.
The Round Table members has had no sleep for two nights in a row, working dilligently.
The moth came again the 2nd night, and even Adventurers started to fall into coma due to the bugs' unknown bad status attacks.
The name of the bugs are "Jouga", meaning "Evermoths". These lv80-90 monsters have never been seen in the game.
There were even larger number of moths in the second night, and even monsters were falling asleep to their attacks.
And.... Apparently they seem to be coming from the moon!!
Leave it game developers to create a game breaking monster. duplicate it and leave it in the game for a while until they release some means to kill the fuckers later on , for a price. Makes me wonder if the game is still a game to people in the real world.
I don't read moon, so I googled a chart and tried the katakana at least.
"Tarikutan"? WTF kind of Final Boss name is that?
she's what you get when you mix Wolfwood, Roberta from Black Lagoon, and Antonio Banderas from Desparado
>Years of /a/ and I just couldn't bring myself to care about you all enough to spend the extra 2 seconds cropping it.
What's happening to me? adult onset faggotry type II, I guess
So I guess his regen just isn't strong enough to counter the MP DoT they're getting from the moths.
I'm sure druid Heartbeat Healing wouldn't be enough for the health hit from the rot they got hit with during the raid.
I also bet you 100 yen
they'll have to break through a mana shield on the bad guy who has like 3 trillion MP before they can damage him
that is so obvious and yet no one thought of it
Mamare said he was gunning for 15 volumes, so there should be 5 books left to write. They'll probably do a final season when hes done if anything, I'd say the likely hood is high since all they've done is adapt the source material. One last season for an easy cash grab doesn't sound bad.
In fairness to Shiroe, one day he's just some college kid, and a year later he's the leader of a major world power. Now he's up against a task that might destroy the only way back home. I can see how it'd shake him.
I ask because the other thing I saw somewhere, maybe in a Mamare interview, was that "Tetra was becoming more and more female... biologically".
I thought one thing that might imply is he started as a chick-with-dick, but was now evolving into an innie.
Now I want art of Tetra
with a huge donkey dick falling out of those bootie shorts while on stage
That's true for every one stuck in the opposite gender. As the game becomes more real they become that gender in body and mind. But the character already has the biology of the character's gender.
No, they were saying that even the character's bodies in the real world were becoming more and more like their in-game avatars. This implies that in the real world, Tetra's body is shrinking and becoming more feminine.
I wish I had a transformation potion so I could do the exact opposite of akatsuki.
If only I could be a qt grill in a fantasy world ;~;
Im digging this.
Delicious new Samurai elf
This tells us a few things, then. Mamare also liked to hint that maybe the adventurers weren't "trapped" in the game world, nor "pulled" into it, but didn't say what he meant.
But we can rule out that they're just copies of real-world minds in newly created bodies, if they're tied to their "bodies" in the real world. It might imply that their real bodies are still conscious, going about their business, wholly unaware of what is happening in this newly-created Log Horizon world, but I don't think so because then poor Tetra's player would be having a piss one day and notice their dick getting smaller & breasts growing.
I think we can also rule out that they were sucked out of the real world, too, so it wasn't a sudden disappearance of tens of thousands of human players who happened to play the same game. They did at least leave a body behind, conscious or unconscious.
It also tells us that the real world still exists, which means this isn't a history rewrite. It might be a distant future time travel thing, but that wouldn't explain how they all got adventurer bodies.
It also confirms that there is, in the end, somewhere to return to.
>Bringing scrubs on a level 90 raid?
For what purpose?
this whole episode
Shiroe really dropped the ball on this one but its a nice change from "shiroe keikaku doori".
Pedo Shiroe watches you play.
For having a blast.
But seriously there are some fine scrups in this episode. Is bottom right human or a dwarf?
he had a lot of his mind
not bringing the team that you personnaly breed and put into the right way so they are already superior to regular adventurers at the same level ?
Not bringing minori that can mimick shiroe tactical skills and execute his plan flawlessly
Not keeping strong people in the city for backup since there are no barriers to it.
Scrubs, yeah right.Even isuzu has an overskill that is extra usefull in this situation.
Sure let's not put YOU in charge and let shiroe work his magic.
>Moths taking over the antenna build and suddenly its a raid zone.
What the fuck is happening.
>Crazy death plant shows up out of fucking nowhere.
man sometimes the DM is just a dick
That alone made me hyped for the next episode.
And that was hilarious.
>Not even Shiroe can adjust his glasses!
Stupid end-of-season realization that every show you love is going to end in one week and most of them will never get a continuation.
Yeah it was a nice change of pace, but where did he get that teleport to safety?
This has nothing to do with their status or their levels.
Besides, they will be fine.
the aggro radius from the raid is huge by default and they had to protect "the sage of the lake" anyway.
Einz a commie traitor scum
Look into these eyes and fall in love.
>no glasses adjust
>Noob group in the main raid
Fuck I hate these guys all except Rudy, I just wish they would go on a long quest and never come back since they can't die. Every time Minori talks I fast forward.
>Over the web novel
>s3 not in sight
Suddenly henrietta scene.Dammit mamare.
Naynta is pedobear.
Latest WWB chapter has a ton of her, but no one cares about WWB, so no point in dumping it.
Id Yatama her Kushi
Because fox girls are the new hotness.
Shirou knew Henrietta far longer than Akatsuki and was on good terms with her
one reason is, that both wear glasses
I you wanna know more, read the LN.
Also I know he will get together with Akatsuki because the end op and end credits say so.
it's really hard to beat moon date
i cant read moon so no idea, but the art is nice.
Ill just dump the chapter because im bored as shit.
Who said anything about he actually dated her?
I said he she had good chances that a romance MIGHT have happened if she didn't have her loli tendencies.
Don't shit yourself man. I am sure the designated love interest will win.
Yeah, what did Eins do exactly? It flew right over my head but they used significant screen time to refer to whatever he did (all I remember is that he was experimenting with fairy rings)
>Believe he even has sex with her in the LN at some point.
I know this isn't the place for it but I can't think of a better reaction than...EEEEEHHHHHHHH?! But little ninja was based off his sister! does that mean the author wants to bonk his sister?
You are the only one with baseless assumptions about your headcanon possible romance, everything I said factually happened. Don't have to be angry at me because your ship will never happen.
I base my claim on Shiroes inner monolouge at the first meeting with Marielle and Henrietta.
Now tell me where you get your info.
And who says I am angry? It just baffles me how you insist that a possible development that didn't happen anyway, COULD never happen.
I already accepted the cannon couple. It is not like we get anything else to see.
He compared Lenessia to himself.
In about two years probably? It's already past the published LN content so you'll have to wait for a while for Mamare to finish the story.
Only few people could ever hope to understand the love between healer and tank.
Indeed, he knows where to get the better heals at.
Yeah, he himself was Lenessia because of the way he had to give up his "cat-like days of laying around the palace" when he started to get popular. With an LN, 4 manga, and 2nd cour of an anime, he's too busy to even play MMOs anymore.
But you remember how Crusty said that he knew how to push Lenessia's buttons because he had a sister at home just like her?
Crusty=Author's sister insert.
Go read the Q&A on American /a/.
This is something we know, and you do not.
this girl gets a ton of screen time for a secondary character, last time she was in a chapter was when Souji became a girl and Olive became Zangief.
>fat old cow>anything
any moon reader care to translate what is her plan this time around to kill Souji and steal the harem?
I really like Serara's seiyuu. Her voice makes my heart go doki doki.
Not that anon, but I would say that TV ratings are more important if we want to see more LH animated.
The love between the healer and tank is one that dates even the oldest of text on earth. Praise be to the true pair.
He knows how to get that ginger pussy
>Be a cripple.
>Be transported to a world where you're not a cripple anymore.
>Want to go back to being a cripple.
He's living his life correctly. The ones that want to stay should learn from him.
Even with the Hidamari staff they got from Shaft they still don't have anyone who cares.
>Be a man.
>Be transported to a world where you're an ageless cute girl.
>Want to go back to being a man.
Who's bright idea was it to put Minori in charge o half the group? She's a goddamned noob and everyone else should be insulted at the fact that they're being babysat by some upstart newbie with no experience. There are people with more experience leading group right there. RIEZE IS RIGHT THERE.
She basically just parroted what was probably the initial battle plan and said common sense shit that should piss her underlings off at being told that. Now that i think of it she reminds me of a former Leader i had who kept on spamming cure me in vent like the 3+ healers didn't know to cure the fucking tank.
Even then. Tohya. go tank the mobs 40 levels above you! Healers/support jobs. go do what the entire purpose of your job is! Secure a path" TLDR that's just telling em to DD which they should already be doing.
She's not very talented.
I know that if everyone is too stupid to do the most basic parts of their jobs properly they shouldn't have been let into the goddamned event. And she's definitely not the second most competent for her amazing acts of telling people to do what they should be able to do on their own. Especially so compared to a person that has to help--->manage 1500 people and their raids since the start of the apocalypse.
guys ... what if Toeii somehow gets season 3 of log horizon.... im scared. i cant go through another change.
They're also ugly ching chongs in real world, I don't understand their reasoning.
Damn Nazuna is so fucking hot.
They're ugly ching chongs and what awaits them in real life is an endless stream of responsibilities plus the prospect of never being happy.
That's what this episode implied, but last episode (and all the knights killing themselves against the wyverns before) imply that empathions are what you lose upon dying, i.e: memories
Then, if Players manage to go back to the real world, is not like they will leave Elder Tale, they will go back as their lifeless mode, while the real psiche goes back to the real world. Am I right ?
Looking like a serious villain here.
Yeah, Shiroe likes it
Less lifeless npcs and more like robots that you could get to do your bidding via offering it something cheap which is why the Landers were/are such jackasses that have trouble understanding adventurers are thinking people now.
