Log Horizon Season 3 Release Date, Cast, Preview and Where To Watch?: Here is an anime that everyone considered to be dead is making its comeback. No one expected the third season of Log Horizon as a few years ago the creator of this series got into some legal trouble. There were so many rumours that the author of the series was jailed or something, But none of it was true, the main reason was that there wasn't enough source material for a new season. The real story can be that the author of the series is a really slow writer.
Log Horizon is an anime based on a Light Novel of the same name. Mamare Touno writes the novel. The novel has received four manga adaptations till now. The first season of the series premiered in October 2013. And the second season released in October 2014. Now that we know that the series will be back, let's look at all the thing we know about it so far.
Log Horizon Plot
The story revolves around 30,000 Japanese players who are trapped in a fantasy-online game universe. This is not a fantasy for them anymore, as it is their reality. Our main characters are Shiroe and his teammates. That involves his old-time friend Naotsugu and an assassin Akatsuki. The story is of their survival and all the hardship they face in this game.
From just reading the plot, it might sound similar to Sword Art Online. But, once you start watching it, you will know different and memorable this series is. It might have dropped some pace in season 2, but it is still so good that once you start watching it, you will stop only after finishing it. The upcoming season is titled as "Log Horizon Round Table Collapse", which means that it will be adapted from the 12th volume of the novel.
Log Horizon Season 3 Release Date
NHK announced that the season would release on January 13, 2021. The series was supposed to release next month but is delayed due to COVID pandemic. The first and second season of the show consisted of 25 episodes each. But season 3 will only have 12 episodes.
"Log Horizon: Destruction of the Round Table" (season 3) begins January 13th.

Hara will be looking over the character designing department, and Shoji Hata will be the sound director. Yasuhara Takanashi will compose the music again, and if we can get a banger like Database and Man with a Mission, it will be just fantastic.
