Log Horizon Fantasy Novels Get TV Anime By Satelight
posted on by Egan Loo
Motoya Matsu's manga adaptation of Mamare Touno's Log Horizon fantasy novel series is revealing on Saturday that the story is getting a television anime adaptation. The anime studio Satelight is producing the planned 25-episode series for airing on the public broadcaster NHK's E-Tele channel this fall.
The story begins when 30,000 Japanese gamers are trapped in the fantasy online game world Elder Tale. What was once a "sword-and-sorcery world" is now the "real world." The main lead Shiroe attempts to survive with his old friend Naotsugu and the beautiful assassin Akatsuki.
Touno debuted his novel on the user-generated content site Shōsetsuka ni Narō in 2010. Matsu launched his Log Horizon Gaiden: Honey Moon Logs manga adaptation in ASCII Media Works' Monthly Comic Dengeki Daioh magazine last year, and the latest installment is running in the magazine's March issue this Saturday. Kazuhiro Hara began serializing the main manga adaptation on Enterbrain's Famitsu Comic Clear website last year, and Koyuki began drawing another manga called Log Horizon - Nishikaze no Ryodan in Fujimi Shobo's Age Premium website last year also.
