Second Log Horizon Blu-ray and DVD Released Monday
posted on by Andrew Osmond
On Monday May 11, MVM will release the second volume of Log Horizon on both Blu-ray and DVD. It carries parts 14 to 25 of the series. From the Anime-on-line website:
Even as Shiroe slowly learns the secrets behind the creation of the World Fraction spell, the origin of the Demi-humans, and how his own actions in the Real World have affected the world in which he now dwells, the seeds of thought he's planted in the minds of others begin to bear fruit. Game strategy and tactics may have been intended for amusement, but their origins were pulled from actual war planning and stratagems. As others begin to accept and implement those theories on their own, the existing alliances and balance of power begin to shift.
Those changes can't possibly come quickly enough, as the adventurers' preoccupations have allowed the Goblins to unite and amass a giant army. Now the Goblins are on the march, and as the Estal Lords debate their course of action, Minori makes a dangerous gamble and initiates action on her own. In the midst of this MMORPG turned real, an unassuming princess may prove to be the key to ultimate victory.
The adaptation of Mamare Touno's novel began 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." Shiroe, Naotsugu, and Akasuki join together to survive.
The anime studio Satelight produced the planned 25-episode series for airing on the public broadcaster NHK's E-Tele channel. Shinji Ishihira directed the anime, and Toshizo Nemoto was in charge of the series scripts. The series stars Takuma Terashima as Shiroe, Emiri Katō as Akatsuki, and Tomoaki Maeno as Naotsugu. The series also stars Jouji Nakata as Nyanta, Daiki Yamashita as Tōya, Nao Tamura as Minori, Tetsuya Kakihara as Lundellhaus, and Eriko Matsui as Isuzu.
