Update: The anime’s air date was revealed.
In the final episode of Log Horizon, it has been announced that a second season of the anime is currently underway. Season 2 of the Log Horizon anime, based on Mamare Touno and Tetsuya Kumagai’s Light Novel, will air this Fall/Autumn in October.
Log Horizon is a light novel series created by Mamare Touno in 2010, when he submitted the novel onto the community driven site Shosetsuka ni Naro. The series was then published by Enterbrain in March 2011 and features illustrations from Tetsuya Kumagai, where a total of 7 volumes has been produced since. A bunch of manga adaptations were then issued after the novel’s publication, all of which are written by Touno. An anime adaptation of the novels began in October last year by studio Satelight and Studio Deen, airing for a total of 25 episodes and covering ~5 volumes.
