Log Horizon Season 3 is a much anticipated anime series awaiting world release.
Log Horizon, the Japanese anime series was inspired by a novel series by Mamare Touno with the same name.
Illustrated by Kazuhiro Hara, it was adapted into four manga series with first part revolving around the original plot of the show while the other three were based on the Light Novel.
Looking at its increasing popularity, an anime series was created and was released on NHK Educational TV in 2013. It was followed by its Second Season that ran from 2014 to 2015. The first series was animated by Starlight and the second by Studio Deen.
Since then, the fans of the series have been eagerly waiting for the next seasons to follow. However, the series did not renew since it was last aired in 2015.
If rumours are to be believed, the production house NHK lacked enough source material to produce a brand new season of Log Horizon.
Another sources cited the delay due to Mamare Touno, the author of the light book, because he was on house arrest due to tax evasion.
Finally after a long interval of 5 years, we have some news about the series. Read on to know more about Log Horizon Season 3 Release, Plot, Cast and much more.
