This is like Sword Art Online. Trapped in a MMO world. Waiting to see how this turns out.. 2 Episodes are already subbed. I didn't see any posts on this so decided to get the ball rolling since people liked SAO so much.

Unfortunately, (or fortunately) for you, LH avoids all the pitfalls of SAO and is actually more likely SAO fans won't like LH.

Written by author of Maoyuu Yuusha, so more infodumpy and heavy exposition of world and etc, more focused on politics and blah blah. MC isn't a gary stu, world doesn't revolve around the MC, etc. and most importantly, there's DATABASE WOW WOW WOW!

I thought SAO was OK (I haven't read the LN though), it's not anywhere near as good as the SAO obsessed fanbase make it to be though, especially with all the iffy moments like Kirito's 24/7 plot armor.

Anyway, probably going to give this a shot.

I watched the first 2 (only two) episodes and I got the same feeling that I got when I watched SAO at it's highest in S1, just from the first two episodes.

So it's looking good. I would like another female MC who holds her own, we have Akatsuki but I don't really like the whole Loli thing.

Watched the first two episodes too, likeable main characters (I say "main characters" because I dislike the Guardian who is just typical overly perverted guy there for comic relief) and I find it interesting how the story starts off with the characters being level capped. It seems very light hearted compared to SAO S1 or .Hack though, I hope it gets a bit more srs?

i honestly didn't like the first ep.
thought it was pretty boring and i'm getting this feeling that it'll be a waste of time

though i'll follow it because i'm a sucker for MMO settings

Being someone who already read the light novel, I can guarantee you that the story will only get better and better.
(I do agree the beginning is a bit boring though)

And in no way, will this turn out like a SAO/.Hack 2.0, the setting used are COMPLETELY different from them.

I sort of felt like there was a Serara evolution scene coming on but idk. It was a good episode though, I liked the ending bit where we saw the scene from Akatsuki's analysis of the situation.

I'm not going to lie. Elder Tale sounds like a fun game.
I didn't expect everything to be so interesting with the main character being a none damage type.

Although it's not really fair on LH to compare it to SAO, I do get that sort of vibe from it (Season 1 of SAO), that's not a bad thing for me, it's actually something quite enjoyable.

I find LH is SAO S2, without all the incest and save Asuna garbage.
i.e. lighthearted MMO theme, with evil PKers who rule the game but without permadeath.

Well SAO S2 without the incest or asuna garbage is basically just a handful of actual episodes if anything.

As it is right now, I like the show and I'm looking forward to this week's episode. I would like another female protagonist, mainly because the whole loli aspect that gets played occasionally with Akatsuki, really turns me off from her as a female protagonist.

That suspense at the end when he was about to say guild name.

I was like, 'Debauchery Tea Party, Debauchery Tea Party, Debauchery Tea Party'. I was slight disappointed but hey, they had to get that title in there somewhere.
