While it could have been an assumed license acquisition given their handling of its first season, but North American anime publisher Sentai Filmworks have confirmed their acquisition of Log Horizon 2. Continuing the action-adventure storyline that came from the mind of Mamare Touno (Maoyu), this season features direction by Shinji Ishihara (Log Horizon, Fairy Tail) with series composition by Toshizo Nemoto (Towanoquon, Dog & Scissors), music by Yasuharu Takanashi (The Severing Crime Edge, The Ambition of Oda Nobuna), and animation production by Studio DEEN (Fate/stay night, Higurashi – When They Cry).
As always, Log Horizon 2 will first be available via video-on-demand services, with a home video release to shortly follow.
After struggling to survive in a surreal existence they were suddenly thrown into, Shiroe and his friends have managed to restore order to Akihabara by defending the people against the Goblins in the Zantleaf Region. After six long months with the team gaining the trust of the many guilds that use the city as their home base, they must now prepare for their unforeseen future – and a tough winter ahead. Once shy and a little standoffish, Shiroe has stepped up and shown that he can be a great leader. But can he keep Akatsuki, Naotsugu, and the rest of the gang together as they start to have differing opinions on their future course of action? And will the clique agree to leave the safety of the holy land of Akihabara to head off to one of the other four cities and explore foreign lands of Elder Tale? Whatever they may decide, this world that was once a game for the players is now reality and they must decide what is best for each and every one of the members of the team. Get ready for the punch line as the saga continues where the adventurers must determine their true destiny in LOG HORIZON 2!
