I would like to see who all would be interested in a log horizon/SAO type group roleplay.

It would be a different setting, but same basic story line. Group of players trapped in a video game.

I will be working more on it when I get home. Had to cut stuff short because dinner plans.

But glad to see people are interested!

Marking curiosity.

Watching with curiosity.

Offline Shjade

Noting interest, though also noting that interest is pretty split: Log Horizon and SAO have...very little in common aside from that gimmick of "trapped in a game." One provides a world with great political and social depth, layers to work with that can be just as interesting with a largely NPC-populated world and few players as with large player-driven factions competing against each other, a world ripe for unraveling complex plots and weaving stories together.

The other is SAO. >.>

Offline Snake

Log Horizon is better, also INTEREST

Offline Silk

I'm also marking interest. :)

Offline Relikai

Interest of course

Offline Hobbes1266

Could be neat

Offline Lynnette

Might be interested, I'm curious too though, as was mentioned above, if it'd be closer to Log Horizon or SAO, since they're two very different stores with very different focus-points and rules for the world.

I'll be keeping an eye on this though.

Offline Seirre

Interested, though I only know SAO.

Offline Snake

Interested, though I only know SAO.

Log Horizon is similar in "circumstance" (pulled into an MMO) but it focuses more on world building and politics than "OMG Kirito's the BEST!" (*gag*)

Offline Petrus02

you didn't miss too much if you missed log horizon^^ sao is the better of the two. as snake said: its much less focused on action and narrativ and more on boring and meaningless sqabbles between different factions.

but no, its very similar to sao in that the main character is completely supirior to most others, just not in strenght, but in strategy

Offline Snake

And is more likeable in general, don't forget that.

They both have good points, like SAO's action but LH's focus on it's characters; if we do this: maybe a meeting of the minds and get somewhere in the middle?

TBH: I just really really hate the protagonist of SAO. He's Gary-stue-pid for no other reason than the original writer didn't know what he was really doing.

Offline Hobbes1266

"The game is fair" says the guy who didn't even raise his sword while other players gangbanged him with weapons without flinching.

Offline Snake

That's one thing I liked about LH: the removal of the "game interface" feeling SAO had. Sure it had shown at some point early on but it progressively did away with the aesthetic as the series went. Only showing up periodically when a new character was shown.

Offline Silk

The main thing Log Horizon has over SAO is that it still feels like a legitimate game universe that has been brought into reality, while SAO could've easily been "transported to X universe thats unrelated to games"

But the main thing SAO has over Log Horizon is that it is for the most part free flowing and keeps to the narrative, while Log Horizon is very exposition heavy and constantly feels the need to explain whats going on which slows it down quite a bit. (I mean seriously we don't need to be told how Thorn bind Hostage works for the 4th time in 5 episodes)

But even with it's flaws I prefer Log Horizon because it just feels a lot grander, while SAO is far too focused on a character I really couldn't give a rats ass about. If they removed Kirito I think SAO would've been a much stronger series.

Agreed. I just saw all the focus on an protagonist that sucked and got turned off from SAO.

Offline Hobbes1266

I honestly like the story of soa abridged better...

Offline shmone else

I did too. The first season of SAO wasn't bad and Asuna was one of the better female anime deuteragonists, but her being basically written out of the post-Aincrad stuff to be a damsel in distress was rough. And SAO Abridged is fantastic, too.
