Log Horizon: Entaku Houkai Synopsis
Five years later comes a new season!
One year after the adventurers were transported to the game world “Elder Tale”, Akiba’s prosperity begins to be threatened after the appearance of a new monster called “Genius”, a power struggle between the aristocrats of East and West, and a growing power gap between the adventures themselves.
Ultimately, the Round Table, the symbol of your unity, will address these issues.
