World without Fiction


And I never thought this series would take on the likes of Ikoku Meiro no Croisee in exploring language barriers. But I do like this twist, especially how it presents otaku culture to stir up imagination that dried itself from being trained to do dull, monotonous tasks.

And it’s interesting to see how Shinichi mulls over his approach of spreading otaku culture if he and the target audience don’t even stand on even ground? Information benefits the educated and for a land whose culture creates a distinction between peasants and nobles, the market of Shinichi’s campaign is quite low.

Just with Log Horizon, I’m really liking the second episode. Though it isn’t common to use otaku culture against reality (I’m looking at you Keima), I am looking forward to Shinichi’s methods of educating a society enslaved by its strong bonds of status and discrimination.

And props to Mai Fuchigami. I don’t get to hear her much but her take on Petralka reminds me of Index (Iguchi Yuka), Also, is it me or does Natsuki Hanae sound like Yoshitsugu Matsuoka when he did Shinichi’s angry voice =/

    Yeah, this continues to be interesting. As for the voices, sometimes I do wonder if they sneak in someone else into the studio uncredited XD.
