Why is it a good anime for gamer to watch?

The trope of “trapped in a video game” isn’t a new one in anime, but Log Horizon approaches the idea differently.

Rather than being trapped in a virtual world and seeking to break free, this group of friends instead embrace this new fantasy world they call home.

What gamer hasn’t dreamed of becoming their avatar and saving the day? Log Horizon explores that idea perfectly and often in surprising ways.

What is this anime about?

Sakamoto Ryota is a deadbeat 22-year-old who won’t find a job and spends all his time playing a combat game called Btooom.

Then, one day, he wakes up on a tropical island and is attacked by another person, who throws a peculiar bomb at him, one that looks like it came straight out of Ryota’s favorite game.

He soon comes to understand he has been placed in a deadly real-life version of the game he spends all his time playing and must use all the virtual skills he has learned over the years and implement them into the real world if he is to survive.

Why is it a good anime for gamer to watch?

We often play violent shooters and multiplayer games for entertainment, but what happens when that game becomes a very real bloodsport?

Every gamer has wondered how their virtual skills might translate into a real world scenario, and Btooom! explores that idea with gory results.

Think something akin to the Hunger Games, but with a video game twist, and you have an idea of why Btooom! is worth watching.
