Log Horizon is a novel series written by Mamare Touno, with illustrations done by Kazuhiro Hara. It tells the story of how characters Shiroe, Naotsugu, and Akasuki survive in the fantasy game world of Elder Tale, where 30,000 gamers are trapped and hence have to fight in order to survive.
The novel was adapted into a two-season anime series in 2013 and 2014. The upcoming third season shares the same title as Log Horizon’s 12th volume.
