What will the scrubs do next episode?

Will Miss Minori destroy akatsuki yet ?

Or will sererarar get dicked by the murlocs ?

Shiroe has such awesome bros.

Do cameras exist yet in their world?

If my guess about the pacing is correct, next week the scrubs will kick some ass, and the week after that shit will go down within the scrub's group.

So what mmo out there is currently closest to Elder Tale?
WoW, Mabinogi, etc. ?
>>
>>100328705
Everquest and RO
and by association, Tree of Savior
>>
>>100322469
Minori is nowhere near akatsuki in terms of level and cuteness.
>>
>>100332026
Haven't had many cute scenes with Minori yet, She's Shiroe's tactics up and coming tactics prodigy
>>
>>100326428
Does he eventually start wearing that?
Maybe they'll figure out a way to screenshot
>>
>>100328705
I think eventually FFXIV can
It has a large emphasis on non-combat roles and guild cohesion with guild housing
It's still very barebones now, because of Reborn and all.
Worst part is no Thief/Rogue/Assassin class
No Samurai class is also a negative
>>
>>100332947
Samurai was an upgrade later in XI. But really? No thief type? Ninja is an old ff class type...
>>
>>100333363
Yeah. Neither of those are in.
No 2h melee at all and no dual wield
They'll come eventually but who knows when, since they're still fixing/adding content
>>
>>100333967
Actually there are Pugs/Monks which are technically dual wield I guess
>>
>>100333967
Damn, And I was really considering it.

Guess I can just wait till new content or something

So in terms of the novel where is the anime going to stop? Also would S2 be a possibility since the novel is still ongoing?
>>
>>100334105
I think as long as the author continues to write in a way that fits the NHK format guidelines a second season is somewhat likely.
>>
>>100322469
I hope Minori perma-dies somehow. Her character would be gone and it would raise tension by showing that non-landers can die under certain circumstances
>>
>>100323878
starting to think the same

it seems people only feel its good based on hatred of sao

i was hoping it would be good based on its own merits but it just isn't really wowing me so far.

is it really better than sao 14 episodes in?

just as bland to me.

>>100334183
Wait until they build rockets to the Moon, Then they can just kill of their bodies and live in the DATABASE forever
>>
>>100323878
Wasn't this for teh Symphogear thread? Or was that the GuP thread?
>>
>>100334183
Your wish is granted, permadies is possible since the villain in glasses somehow discover it with best girl.

But I don't think Minori would permadie first among the scrubs (inb4 doge). Instead I think Mamare would permakill Tohya for maximum fans rampage.
>>
>>100334745
Pretty sure Shiroe is going to end up dying or killing himself for the sake of being a glorious bastard
>>
>>100334745
I think Marmalade likes the current Shiroe romantic situation, so I can't see anyone in that geometric figure getting perma-banned until he feels like resolving the romance.

Regarding Tohya, yeah, that would make me rage like crazy, and he's a good target because he's not currently paired off with anyone.
>>
>>100334105
>>100334156
There's simply not enough material for S2 right now. The show is going to cover 5 of the 7 novels out, so it'll be at least a few years for there to be enough material if he releases annually.
>>
>>100335073
Well that's what I meant. Let's say he pushes and gets enough content out in a couple years. Long as he meets the guidelines and it's somewhat popular NHK would not be opposed to it I think.
>>
>>100335073
There ought to be enough side-story material to do an OVA each year for 5 years or so while Marmalade finishes the main series.

That'll keep the fanbase alive (albeit on life support) so they are ready to buy when S2 drops.
>>
>>100335231
Oh yeah. The raildex approach. Could focus on the leader of DBT abd what she was doing.

>>100335372
Like Raildex, yeah. That series may not be well written, but it's very well marketed.

Between the two spin-off manga series and whatever else Marmalade can come up with, I'm sure they can spin out 30-60 minutes worth of material each year, if not more.

Is RRRRRRRRRRRUNDELHAUS not-german or what?

Depends whether Germans are NPCs in your world.

Does anybody else want to see Henrietta asking to dress up Akatsuki and she just says "no" and sits on Shiroe's lap?
>>
>>100335907
I'm waiting for the moment when Shiroe dresses up Minori with Akatsuki watching from the shadows.
>>
>>100334867
But before Shiroe permadies, I think there will be some permadeaths beforehand.

Since Shiroe and Nureha discover how to permakill adventurers, and they are being hostile each other, I think the permadeath feast would be happened when Akiba and Minami residents thrown into an inevitable civil war soon, and ended with Nureha being Nobunaga-ed by "Mitsuhide" Inctis who permakilled later by Shiroe who got rage-powered after Akatsuki permakilled when trying to protect him

Well she's tiny but doesn't look like a child. She's got a cute personality. And I like really long hair.

Serara is ok but I don't like her voice as much.

They don't permadie, they just get relocated to hello kitty online.

Considering underwear was a hot commodity once it was available, do you think Akatsuki made a fundoshi out of cloth since she's such a huge role player?

>>100338294
I think she's wearing a fundoshi right now, yes.

I meant before it could be sold. Just seems like she'd take the effort to wrap one up. And maybe still wear one after.
>>
>>100338549
>And maybe still wear one after.

This is exactly what I think is going on. She's wearing one because it was easy and because she can and because she's adorably embarrassed when it comes to wearing girly stuff while in character.

I don't think Akatsuki's wearing anything underneath.

So, just marathoned the anime up till now, the first three episodes or so are kinda bad, Serara is very annoying, the repeated gags tend to drag, but once it got past all that it was really good and I'm interested in the game system.

I do like the difference it has with .Hack, in .Hack it was all about the mystery (Or in G.U. about Haseo Growing Up) but here it's more about the politics and the changing world and really focusing more on the game aspect.
>>
>>100336667
im sorry but serarara is the worst girl, shes just another generic teary eyes moe character that is obv in love with someone. plus she has an annoying voice

>Raynesia let out a perplexed voice. This is a nurse uniform. And a mini skirt on top of that. Although Raynesia is not very tall, but her proportions are perfect and her breast forms a beautiful curve. Akatsuki shakes her head with complicated emotions. No matter how you dice it, there is only a very small minority of adventurers who dress like this daily.

ITS A BRAVE NEW WORLD, AKATSUKI-CHAN
>>
I'm marathoning the anime, and there seems to be a big deal about memory loss on death. It can't be a big thing, can it? There are people who've probably died dozens of times since they all arrived, and nobody's lost any memories, or if they have then they haven't noticed it, so the memories are probably just minor ones or little things. If it were a major problem, then wouldn't more people know or care about it?
>>
>>100341411
Wait for it.

>She wants to see Shiroe. Even just for a bit, she wants to talk to him. She wants to get close and tug on his cloak. She wants to pour black rose tea into Shiroe's tea cup. Just like the times when they sat on the couch and look at the scenery outside the window. When Shiroe makes complicated faces while reading complicated letters, she tries to imitate him.

>But she can't fulfill her wish here. She don't feel qualified to live peacefully by Shiroe's side with the fake side she is displaying.

>She will always be the 'bonus item' that comes along with Shiroe if this goes on.

>Akatsuki thinks that's fine too.

>Staying by Shiroe's side, basking in the sun together with him, living as his ninja is also a bliss.

>But that is just a deception.

>Being satisfied just with this is just being bashful, Minori will definitely notice.

>A swallow that is unable to fly won't be able to keep up with Shiroe one day. There will be no other way but to leave.

>Her thoughts is similar to before, going round in circles. No matter what, she is just thinking about herself. She hates herself for being so self centered.

>There won't be anyone who likes a girl like her. Always thinking about herself and not willing to make friends. That's why she can't face Shiroe now.
>>
>>100343491

Its probably safe to say that the vast majority of the Akihabara population stay within city limits and pick up domestic jobs instead of coping with post-Apocalypse combat and the traumatic experience of death.

It's implied in one of the novels that it isn't that death takes part of your memory, it's that after death, before you respawn, you're in an in-between place, and you choose to surrender a few memories in order to return to the world once more.

So, it's also implied that if you lose all your memories and die again, you can't ressurect in the cathedral again a.k.a permadeath, isn't it?
>>
>>100345428

How would that work though? I mean Rudy became an adventurer but he has no 'real Earth' memories to sacrifice.
>>
>>100345484
Yep, and he's already come back once.
>>
>>100345428
No. The translation might be bad, but here:

Shiroe pulls out a fold able knife from somewhere and unfold it. He cuts off a part of his fringe with rusty movements. The cut off hair shines strangely is much fewer than a bunch.

Akatsuki receives the knife from Shiroe and shave a small part of hair from her ponytail just like Shiroe did. She don't know why she did it, but she understand in her heart this is necessary.

They walk into the clear blue water and scatter the hair into the sea.

The sound of crystal colliding came from somewhere as if to acknowledge the receipt of something and the snow that don't feel cold flies all around them.

Akatsuki understands these specks are the memories of everyone.

Death doesn't rob people of their memories, it is the people who offers their memories for the chance to live again.

Even if she doesn't recall, deep in her heart is the desire to rise again, that's what Akatsuki thinks.

"Amazing."

Shiroe's commented without much thought, which matches how Akatsuki feels.

How much memory does these flying snow flakes contains?

How many people made new resolutions on this beach?

The vast quantity and weight makes Akatsuki dizzy.

The luck and value that is not bound by any authorities is unbelievable.

Shiroe is right beside her.
>>
>>100345505
So. Does that mean permadeath is simply killing yourself again consecutively on the moon server before ever respawning?
>>
>>100345682
Or getting sniped while on the moon.

>>100345484
>>100345505

So, the anime really pushes Akatsuki and Shiroe as a couple in the OP, and I know that she's the main heroine, but are there any other challengers? I mean, most of the anime doesn't focus on Akatsuki having feelings for Shiroe, and I find one-to-one romance stories boring.

>>100346424

I feel like Kanami is Shiroe's first love, even if he doesn't fully realize it yet, and all the other girls will have no chance until he gets over her. Meaning she's going to die.

>>100346487
I'm anticipating Henrietta realizing she can't deny her feelings forever, Shiroe and Nureha getting a Batman-Catwoman relationship, and Minori and Akatsuki making peace to fight off non-guild love interests.

And I can't wait to see what Isaac, Crusty, and the rest o the guild leaders do when they find out Shiroe has a harem developing around him. Soujirou's reaction will be interesting.
>>
>>100346624
Why would Krusty care? He's busy tormenting Raynesia.
>>
>>100346624
Soujirou and Shiroe would be harem brothers in arms. With Naotsugu slowly building up his harem too, and in secret Serara making a Nyanta fan club/organization wherein middle school girls and chefs worship Nyanta.
>>

But doesn't Henrietta drop out of Shiroe-bowl because she realizes christmas cake is no match for loli?
>>
>>100347350
Pretty much, yeah. She doesn't think she's attractive because she hangs around Marielle so much.
>>
>>100347350
She gave up because she thought her infatuation with Shiroe is just respect. She said that Shiroe is a man among men, she defines him as that, and having low self-esteem, she said that she isn't good enough for him. Thus she deduce that it is not love.
>>
>>100347419
It's funny cause the real reason why Shiroe is not attracted to Henrietta was tendency to love lolis, which is a huge turn-off to Shiroe. He probably thinks Henrietta is just pure /u/
>>
>>100347483
He's going to have so much egg on his face when the dust settles.
>>
>>100347448
Pretty much. She goes and says "I'm not in love with him because I don't really want to fuck him, I just think he's the man of men." And she rationalizes to herself that she has no appeal and wouldn't be able to compete with Minori and Akatsuki, so she'll just support Shiroe's choice. Because she wants Shiroe to be happy.

She's in denial.

Can't they just purchase the Teleport Gates and turn it on?

>>100347843
No, because they don't know how to turn them on.

I know that in Rubicon, you need specific items to activate specific gates that can only be found in randomized wormhole regions. Maybe Log Horizon requires rare items from some sort of dungeon?

You'd have to ask Nureha. And she isn't telling as long as Shiroe refuses to ride the fox-tail.
>>
>>100347173
>>100347350
Here's the thing: Henrietta drops out because she wants to be friends with Minori and Akatsuki and lacks self-esteem because she's a workaholic Christmas Cake. Minori and Akatsuki are friends/senpai-junior and in the same guild, and they both know Henrietta fairly well. They're all going to end up as friends, so it's very likely they'll come to an agreement about Shiroe, much like Soujirou's harem organizes itself.

A harem ending for these three is somewhat likely. If Nureha manages to become a princess in need of saving and goes over to Shiroe's side, it'll be a full harem.

>She's in denial.
I can see where this is heading towards to
>>
>>100347981
From what I can speculate on the ending part of Vol 5, and the slight spoiler of Vol 7 where Shiroe tries to earn more money to buy the important buildings in the Yamato server. I think Shiroe's new goal is to free Nureha from Minami from the evil lesbian pyscho mastermind, since by being enemies with Nureha would he liberate her from her shackles.

Middle. Isuzu is a good contender though

Will they end the season at Vol 6? Or will they end it at the festival arc(vol 5)? Since they showed the hair floating in the OP, I'm thinking they might end it up until vol 6, but the pace of each episode would show that 1 vol takes up 5 episodes which would only reach to ep 25 (Vol 5). Will they shorten the time for Vol 5's arc?
>>
>>100349377
Presumably they'd be stuck on the moon server. Be kind of boring, really.
>>
>>100349477
How many episodes are there in the season?
>>
>>100349511
Iirc just 25 episodes.
>>
>>100349567
Then that gets you to the end of volume 5 without any problems. Probably finish the festival, leave a stinger for a new enemy (Nureha + Minami), and then go on hiatus.
>>
>>100349477

>5 episodes a vol.
>10 episode war arc

ALL OF MY MONEY.

About that beta server, is there any city ruins since the moon is beta server? Or maybe the Alvs?

Not said. All that's been seen of it is a beach and an ocean.

series is shit because nobody died yet, the author needs to kill someone from the main cast so we know that SHIT GOT REAL

>>100350396
She's being manipulated by her second-in-command and is also mentally tortured by phantom voices, which she believes are the Adventurers she blacklisted from Minami's Cathedral (preventing them from respawning if killed). She was also an abused whore or something in real life, and used the game to escape. When she got stuck in the game she started backsliding, and she is very unhealthily obsessed with Shiroe.
>>
>>100350442
>death has to be a catalyst for plot advancement

no
>>
>>100350468
but its true, everyone in that world is too relaxed, why arent people going crazy or hysterical? someone needs to die in public
>>

Why not kill a lander?
>>
>>100350515
>someone needs to die in public
Yeah. Soujiro. and Demikas. and Rudy. and Akatsuki. and Shiroe.

Offscreen, Tohya, Minori, Isuzu and Crusty died.
>>
>>100350515
>why arent people going crazy or hysterical?
did you miss the whole first arc about people going mad but because death is not really a problem it just drives them super hard into depression?
or how some of the other adventurer cities have gone to shit becuase people went nuts?

death is a cheap way to cause drama, political tension is much better, and the fear of the unknown in the form of "you will eventually forget about your world and just think you have been a part of this one for ever" can create some interesting scenarios .
>>
>>100350515
They weren't relaxed at all in the start you know, they were pretty much on the edge until someone actually got killed and respawned which guaranteed that they won't die when being killed in the game. If you're complaining on how the main guilds cope it, well they are in a guild, if you're in a group of people you know you can calm down a bit better. It wasn't shown in the anime but Maryielle was scared when the Apocalypse occured, but she is the guild leader of Crescent Moon, the big head, so she got to pull herself together to not let the other guild members be restless. The one who saved her from her inner depression was Naotsugu, when she called Shiroe to come to their guild, Naotsugu cheered her up, which explained the hugging infatuation of Maryielle to Naotsugu.

Listen, retard. Dying is fucking escapism. You die, you're finally off the hook.
That's the faggot's way out.

Not dying, even when killed? Now that shit is deep. You are stuck in a limbo, and you have to hit end game. Now that shit is awesome because its perpetual fate without an escape.

You can fucking kill yourself or let someone else kill you like the pussy your are. Or you can die again and again until you learn to git gud.

And this is why SAO will always be shit.

Nope.

>>100350814
Oops I strayed a bit far to the topic, but yeah most of the players calmed down as soon as they realized that dying would not mean dying in real life. So the only problem they have now is how to return home, and on the process what is their necessity of living in ET while looking for a way home.
>>
>>100350938
>go home

Why would they want that? They live the life of badasses in a fantasy world, they can't die permanently, so they can just be a little bit more careful if they're that scared of the memory loss... exactly what are the downsides here?
>>

You could say mabinogi only for the sandbox.
Man that game could be way better but I guess those are the limits of a 10 year old game

Anon, some may prefer the ET world but most are not hardcore gamers and were just casuals that logged at the wrong time.
>>
>>100351157
Well, okay. Fair enough on that count, then.
>>
>>100351003
They have famil, lover and friend in real world, anon. Probably there's some abnormal ones who was happy when they got stuck in ET. NA, SA, Yurop, and Aussie server probably have those people
>>
>>100351247
But we all know that, the BRs would prefer this world and dance the dance of their people in South Africa with a massive killing spree in the cathedral until they lose all their memories in the real world. Link related, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f3n_NsvGZSg

One day Isuzu will have to make the choice between Rudy and her family

So do you think this was planned on the part of the developers? Or that there will be a copout "No they were transferred to a REAL ELDER TALE UNIVERSE"
>>
>>100351520
>Inb4 Tankbro is pretty much living a sad life, and hates the society in the real world which explains why he's mad at the whole pking lower leveled players and slaving the landers. Inside that genki free-spirited facade is a weak persona which is the real Naotsugu.

Is there any way to end this story and not have it be depressing and/or a let down? That's kind of the problem. What answer would be worth while?

If they managed to escape would the Landers return to seeing them as robots and the adventurers seeing the Landers as NPCs?

>>100351909
here's a question, did they leave bodies behind in the real world? or did they literally transform into their avatars and go into ET?

In short, Are they Digimoning this shit or .Hacking it?
>>
>>100351761
When they are finally escape from ET, they must have some post-ET syndrome.

>You finally escape from ET
>Real world
>Back to school
>Suddenly you met some people who want to bully you
>Get surrounded
>Fuck, I'm must do something
>Astral Bind
>Nothing happened
>Get fucked
>>
>>100351951
i dont think anybody knows that yet
>>
>>100352000
>Not thorn bind hostage in your eyes hoo
Step it up senpai, another side-effect would be that they would feel weird height wise to some, and also shock due to easy fatigue, in ET the are pretty much superman.
>>
>>100351951
Neither. The novels will end without giving that answer. And scrubs and teenagers alike will spend a long time "speculating" about it without acknowledging the author left it unanswered.
>>
>>100351951
Their bodies are disappeared without traces and their consciousness is inserted into their avatar.

Probably, their realselves are hidden within their avatars

The wait for Log Horizon is excruisiating and these threads don't help to stave off the anticipation. Why is this one of two best series in the last three seasons? Japan, get your shit together. More great stories and worlds with complex characters, less moe shit fanservice.
>>
>>100352325
You might want to wait for the upcoming show Vanadis, it's one of the redeeming stories in japan compared to shit like the Blade dance, or that new loli girl-totally-a-dragon LN that are getting animated.
>>
>>100352420
>loli girl-totally-a-dragon LN
Fuck me, why is that getting animated.
>>
>>100352169
>>100352127
The manga adaption shows the first scene. Shiroe is in front of his computer, right before the Novasphere Pioneers ("New Sphere Pioneers" = "New World Pioneers"?) update went live, and seconds later, as the expansion kicks in, he's vanished from his chair.
>>
>>100352449
Popular for pandering LN, nothing to be suprised about, just depressing to see that and Blade dance to be animated. Kinda hoping at least a better LN like Mismarca or Shinmai Maou to be animated instead of those 2 shitty LN adaptions.
>>
>>100324131
The show is solid, don't be apologetic you limp-dicked gutless shrimp.
>>
>>100352838
The first three episodes or so are kinda weak, but it really picks up.
