MAL: Log Horizon
Without warning, thousands of players of the massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) Elder Tale end up being transported inside of the world of the game during the latest expansion pack, inhabiting the bodies of their game avatars without any way back. Among them is Shiroe, a long-time player, strategist and member of a famous pick-up group known as the Debauchery Tea Party (DTP). Realizing that the hub city of Akiba would devolve into lawlessness and chaos, he partners up with his friend, Naotsugu, and the stealthy ninja, Akatsuki, to bring structure and order to the city. From there, they work together in order to not only survive, but thrive in the world that is now their reality.
Log Horizon stands apart from other ‘trapped-in-a-videogame’ anime by exploring how Shiroe, his friends and the other players learn to live in a world already inhabited by natives through the use of mature tactics such as politics, planning, and compromise.
