Log Horizon series is based on Mamare Touno’s novel series. Kazuhiro Hara illustrated the series. It started serialization online on a website Shosetsuka Ni Nar in Japan. This was in the year 2010.
With an increasing number of fans, an anime series was created and was released on NHK Educational TV in 2013. What followed was the second season in the series, which was released on 4th October 2014. The first series was animated by Starlight. The second and third seasons will be aired by Studio Deen.
The story involves a massively multiplayer online role-playing game. With worldwide players in millions of numbers, the game becomes a massive hit all around the world. However, after the 11th edition, something strange happens. With the release of the 12th expansion pack, players who logged on by the time of an update, find themselves trapped. Yes, the players were transported into a virtual world of the game. They were all left in the game in their respective avatars.
Things get much more interesting when the player mates team up together. A socially inactive player named Shiroe and his friends Naotsugu and Akatsuki join hands to face the situation together. The virtual world sadly becomes their reality, and the journey is all about survival and escape.
Ever since the release of the second season in 2014, it’s been five years with no news of season 3. But it’s indeed great news for the fans that a TV series is planned to be released in Japan.
If our assumptions are right, based on the reports, we can expect it to be released in October 2020. However, the present scenario of the COVID-19 pandemic outbreak is still a concern. Possibilities do exist that the release may take even further time. Anyway, let’s hope things won’t get worse, and everything falls in place.

- Tomoaki Maeno for Naotsugu
- Nyanta Daiki Yamashita for Toya
