What is log horizon about
ログ・ホライズン1 異世界のはじまり (Log Horizon, #1) by Mamare Touno
This light novel is everything I hoped for. Having loved the anime, I had high expectations going into the novel. I was not disappointed.
Log Horizon is, like most of the light novels Ive read, a very character driven story. Its also very detail-oriented. Primarily, it follows Shiroe, an Enchanter class player who is pretty much the ultimate strategist, though we do see events occasionally through the eyes of Naotsugu, Akatsuki, and others.
The first volume includes quite a few characters, and from watching the anime I know that this cast will only get bigger. Despite the already growing cast, though, you still get a good idea of what makes each character tick. Shiroe, for example, is a brilliant strategist, a bit awkward with other people, and has a strong sense of right and wrong. Naotsugu acts like a goof to cope with bad situations and to try and help others cope. Akatsukis a little harder to figure out, given that she still seems to cling a bit to her RP personality, but she comes across as honest and wants to prove herself. I could go on and on, but Id probably bring in stuff I know from the anime and spoilers might occur. That, and there are already at least 8 notable characters in this volume alone, and going through them all would make this review unbearably long.
As I said previously, the novel is very much a detail-oriented story. Theres a lot of world building to get on paper, since this world of Elder Tale is a game even bigger than WoW and has been around longer. Touno is careful not to make background discussions into one big info dump by breaking them up with dialogue and action, and Touno makes sure to avoid rambling at these info sessions as well. The focus on detail also lets this story move at a slower pace, making even the battle sequences feel more like a strategy game than an all-out fight. I really liked this attention to detail and to the history of the game. I also really liked that were following veteran players. Too often these kinds of series focus on growing newbies rather than people who actually know what theyre doing, which for a game with as much history as Elder Tales would mean missing out on a lot of really cool stuff.
The only thing I want to say, and Ive pointed this out with the manga version of Log Horizon as well, is that Yen Press (or Yen On in this case) messed up on a particular translation. This is me being picky, Ill admit, but its Thorn-Bind Hostage, not Sewn-Bind Hostage. This doesnt affect anything, really, other than make me sigh while reading. Otherwise, the translation seems pretty good.
If you liked slower, thoughtful, character-centric stories like the various .hack// series, youll probably like this one. If you want nonstop action, you might want to pass on this one.
