Log Horizon Novel 11 Listed for March
posted on by Karen Ressler
Kadokawa released the 10th volume of Touno's Log Horizon novel series with illustrations by Hara in September 2015. Touno posted the 11th, 12th, and 13th volumes online from 2015-2017, but they have not received illustrated physical releases from Kadokawa. Touno has also started the 14th volume, and he published the most recent chapter last August.
Touno was charged with tax evasion in April 2015, and found guilty a year later. He was sentenced to 10 months in prison, though the sentence is suspended for three years so he will not serve time if he remains on good behavior.
The story of the Log Horizon novels 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." Shiroe, Naotsugu, and Akasuki join together to survive.
Log Horizon has inspired two TV anime series. The first season premiered in October 2013, and the second season premiered in October 2014. Yen Press publishes the Log Horizon light novels, as well as the Log Horizon: The West Wind Brigade spinoff manga, in North America.
