Someone said there was already a thread for this, but the only one I can find is one that is edited with no info.
Anyways, anyone else watching this? I just finished the first episode and liked it a bit. I'm not really sold on it yet, as I'm not to big of a fan of the art, and the story appears to lean a bit towards chibi/gag. However, there were enough serious elements to keep me interested.The story 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. The main lead Shiroe attempts to survive with his old friend Naotsugu and the beautiful assassin Akatsuki.
I'm honestly getting tired of all these anime that fail to take themselves seriously. I'd like something like Log Horizon/.Hack/SAO that kept themselves 100% serious and tried to use crisp and realistic animations. It really breaks the immersion the story given me when suddenly the characters start a shouting match in the middle of a situation that should have some tension, and transform into little midgets who lack any real detail and do nothing but wave their arms. Or when someone suddenly knees another person in the face.
