Pretty low-key episode of Log Horizon this week, with Isaac and Iselus getting a moment in the sun while the whole cast kind of vaguely ruminated on the possibility of going home. It certainly doesn’t feel like this is a show that could possible end forever in two more episodes, but hey, Log Horizon’s doing its thing. I guess we’ll have to see where they decide to wrap things up.
My full ANN post is available here. Notes below!
More with Isaac and Iselus, Lenessia’s brother
Shiroe commissioning a lunar communication device from the science guilds, but it’d be massively expensive
And they’re not even sure it would work
The kids reflecting on possibly going home. “I don’t know…” Minori says, looking at Tohya. And how must Rudy feel?
Tohya: “I’m going home. I like this place, and I want to stay. But I didn’t make any effort coming here – next time, I want to create my own place.”
“I’ve been expecting to say goodbye at some point.” Oh, Rudy
“If you go home, you can play music with your father, right?” AW JEEZ RUDY
The city of Maihama, Lenessia’s home, is being culturally affected by the Adventurers’ Akihabara culture
Talking about succession within the Cowen family. The grandfather is an interesting character – he has his own values, but as usual for Log Horizon, the show only observes, doesn’t judge
So now Isaac’s officially responsible for teaching Iselus things about the Adventurers
Iselus seems grounded as all hell
Isaac getting won over by the guy
Talking about Westelande working with Minami, plotting against Eastal
Isaac getting pulled into investing in these conflicts in spite of himself
“I want to do something before I go home!” Jeez, everyone’s talking as if it’s already set in stone. Is the story actually winding down? Seems like such a waste – things were just getting interesting!
Lenessia giving Iselus advice about adventurers with glasses
The assassins’ levels are surprisingly high
And now Isaac and Iselus are friends forever
Aw shit, that merchant was Karashin? I didn’t even recognize him with his new outfit
There’s a tv station in Shibuya that might still have a functioning communication system
Aaand now everyone’s collapsing time’s up next episode
