#5: Anime You Love, But Everyone Hates
While it certainly is not fair to say that “Log Horizon” is hated to any significant degree, it also feels like the show does not get as much appreciation as it deserves. As it was the one that popularized the sub-genre of trapped-in-a-video-game, “Sword Art Online” still gets a lot more of the love despite not necessarily being much better, if at all.
While “SAO” was carried initially by its incredible animation and soundtrack, “Log Horizon” seems to have a lot more presence in its writing, taking time to set up its world and characters much more than “Sword Art Online” really ever did. Granted, I cannot speak to the former beyond its first season, it would not surprise me if that trend continues it to its sequels. All in All, I just find “Log Horizon” to be a much better series between the two.
