A Database To Call Home: Community and Progress in Log Horizon

When a genre of anime and manga such as Isekai—being transferred to a fantasy world—has proliferated to an extreme degree, it can be difficult to find meaning in individual stories. Though larger properties like Sword Art Online are sometimes held as standard-bearers for Isekai as a whole, the genre has more to offer than simple wish fulfillment stories about fantasy worlds. Whether it’s Re: Zero’s meditation on the nature and effect of game-like magic powers, or KonoSuba satirizing every aspect of JRPGs, Isekai has room for exploration and experimentation.
