I am so entirely sick of people ragging on characters that want/try to do the right thing. see: Captain America, see: Superman, see: Scott McCall

It’s always so utterly transparent too. Like I get it, these characters make you uncomfortable because you see them in all the…

do you ship Chaud and Maylu? Such an old-time show, but they've been an OTP of mine for years XD

Friendly reminder that no one who knows who the Clairvoyant is has ever actually said “he”.

The only people who say “he” are SHIELD agents and others not in the know.

The people who know who the Clairvoyant is always say just, “The Clairvoyant” every time a normal person would say “he” or “she”.

I am SO glad someone else pointed this out. I was discussing this with my fiance weeks ago - in stories, things like this are intentional. There is PURPOSELY a hole where information about their gender would be - and the funny thing is, most people don’t realize. They fill in the blank with “he” themselves.

You are not going in circles

You are making progress in a spiral. You do come back around to where you were at the start, since recovery and healing take time, but every time you come back around to that point you’re a little higher up because you’ve got more experience, more knowledge, and more strength.

You ARE making progress

They just know better.

i couldn’t think of anyone so here’s my best guess

I have to agree with Mel, there - my first thought was Anna, but I’m also ditto on the “wait wut” with the orgasm denial part…

regenisplezier:

why are VR-MMORPG anime so popular all of a sudden? the current ones aren’t even executed properly. stuck in a game and your priority (along with seemingly everyone else’s) isn’t getting out? no realistic response to the situation at all? i’m looking at you, ‘log horizon’. doesn’t matter how pretentious you get by making it seem as though the complex and political is valued above the ”raw” action, you need a sense of realism to execute that sort of thing.

(warning, some spoilers below)

I respectfully disagree! I think I would be more inclined toward’s Shiroe’s course of action than blatant “GET US OUT OF HERE” methodology. Primary reason being - they understand little to nothing about how the world works now that they’re actually inside it. If you’re suddenly physically stuck in a video game world, where exactly do you begin planning escape methods? Smashing your head against a rock repeatedly hoping to knock yourself out of it? Running around the world getting lost, confused, and/or killed repeatedly in the hopes you’ll accidentally stumble across the answer somewhere? 

Shiroe’s methodology involves simultaneously improving the current situation for the people stuck inside the game AND researching the world around them to understand it better. The more he learns, the more he understands how to affect and change the world around them. These are useful building blocks leading up to a potential escape.

But back to the first half of that, improving the situation - let’s take a deeper look at that. Everyone is scared, everyone is confused out of their minds, and many are behaving in very fear-controlled ways - whether by cowering around inside the city doing nothing, or venting it by killing other players for little real gain. The rest are  mostly just trying to survive day to day - battle, eat, sleep, repeat. In general, there’s a lot of chaos and a huge lack of organization. This is the opposite of beneficial to the trapped players cohesively working together to gather knowledge and resources that could lead to escape, and in addition to that they’re all just kind of miserable and unmotivated.

Shiroe manages to begin giving them reason to go on, to be productive, and above all, to grow in cohesiveness. This leads to better overall resources and cooperation, and improved success at understanding the workings of the world. Eventually, Shiroe realizes he can actually potentially change the laws of the world with magic! (and the way it’s discussed, it makes it sound a LOT like software programming, which - hey, if he gets that figured out, potential escape route?) But he wouldn’t have gotten those answers in the first place by wandering around aimlessly with the singular goal of finding a way to leave - he only gets to that point because of improving relations with the People of the Land, which wouldn’t have gotten rolling as a process if the adventurers themselves hadn’t become organized, etc.

And that said, there may well be a chunk of players who ARE relentless spending their days hunting with that one single goal of “escape” in mind, as you believe to be somehow more realistic than what Shiroe has chosen to do. (I’m not saying that it’s not realistic, I’m saying that they both have merit and basis in realistic choices and I feel it unfair of you to call the one unrealistic just because it might not be what you would do). However, Log Horizon chooses to be different than the norm in many respects, not the least of all in its choice of an intelligent, strategic plotter of a man rather than a muscly action man with a sword - and that changes the entire type of story that you get. Now, you’re perfectly within your rights to not enjoy this anime because it’s maybe less action-y than you’d like, but that just means its genres are wrong for you, not that there’s inherently something wrong they’ve done with the storyline.
