After bringing out singles for these two main series that ran several years ago, Kadokawa is now finally going the box set route. The two seasons of Log Horizon, which ran for two cour each, are now scheduled for box set releases. Each came out on January 24th, 2020 with a super low price of just 13,200 yen on Blu-ray. We’ve now got a good look at both the cover and the packaging spread for them, leaving us excited for the upcoming third season. The singles, which ran for eight volumes previously, were priced at 7,800 yen, making this a steal. And these are the same discs as before as they’re not reauthored down to fewer discs and include all the original extras, which were fairly extensive at the time.
Plot concept: Elder Tales has become a global phenomenon, immersing millions of players in its online fantasy world. However, something goes wrong with the twelfth expansion pack. Eight-year veteran Shiroe and 30,000 other players suddenly find themselves trapped in the game’s no-longer-fictional universe!
Except it’s not even exactly the game they knew: things are in different places, the portals don’t work, and if a gamer was playing an avatar who wasn’t a physical match for their real self… well, let’s just say that everyone who’s been playing is going to have to make some serious adjustments to their new world view.
On top of that, the former Non-Player-Characters are now self-aware and working towards their own ends. This collision of the Elder Tale people and players with seemingly impossible skills, abilities, and knowledge promises to be cataclysmic. Get ready for heroes to rise and new legends to be forged as Shiroe and fellow players Naotsugu and Akatsuki discover what happens when sword and sorcery becomes real!
