Log Horizon 2 First Impressions (1): Quest start!

[HorribleSubs] Log Horizon 2 - 01 [720p].mkv_snapshot_10.26_[2014.10.04_09.18.23]

After a bit of break, this series is back with another season. The first episode didn’t dwell too much on reintroducing the show with some flashback of the events of the last season, which I appreciate, but the festival scenes really ate up a lot of screen time. It looks like the controversy regarding the adventurers in the South will just be weighing as a constant presence for the time being as the main quest seems to be searching for some sort of spring of infinite gold.

I’m really curious about the final scene in the episode, though. It features Akatsuki and Shiroe in casual clothes (normal world-looking clothes) talking about some sort of “failure” on Christmas Eve. Given the nature of the show, it’s hard to predict whether they’re talking about real death or game death, but I’m much more curious why their clothes aren’t game world clothes. Is that supposed to be some sort of flash-forward hinting at the end of this series? Suggesting that this season may be the last?

The opening for this series…well, it’s the same song, so no real comments here (I know Database was popular, but that just seems lazy to me). The ending song is similar to last season in that it features Akatsuki heavily and doesn’t have the same intensity as the opening song. The ending also features a new character pretty heavily, a pink-haired girl who is apparently floating in the air. Another mystical NPC like Regan, maybe? Either way, it looks like next week will be the start of the fighting.

  1. “a pink-haired girl who is apparently floating in the air”

    It’s Tetra. I am not making a big spoiler, only the name of the character, because Tetra is… Tetra. There are a lot of spoiler that the pink hair hide…

    You don’t noted that the “before the opening” scenes show the old leader of Tea Party. She too appear at the opening sequence. That is the most important information about this second season, Kanami is back and will not be only flashbacks…

    The leader of the Debauchery Tea Party is BACK! Run while you can!

    1. yeah, I wasn’t sure whether that was supposed to suggest something or whether that was just random flashback, so I left it out
