The cover of the first volume

Log Horizon (ログ・ホライズン, Rogu・Horaizun?) is a Japanese novel series by Mamare Touno. It was originally posted as a web novel on a site called Shōsetsuka ni Narō (Syosetu) starting in 2010, and was later officially published as a light novel by Enterbrain starting in 2011.

There have been four manga adaptations and two 25-episode anime adaptations. A third, 12-episode season is scheduled to air January 2021.


The story takes place in a universe where 30,000 Japanese players and several hundreds of thousand players worldwide are trapped in a fantasy online game world called Elder Tale. For these players, what was once a "sword-and-sorcery world" is now the "real world"! The main character is a male named Shiroe who teams up with his old friend Naotsugu and an assassin named Akatsuki as they try to survive in this new world.
