“Counteraction rising. Yeah, we’re ready for the punchline. There’s no use with all your gimmicks, so check this out!” – Log Horizon truly knows how to start an episode. It’s with these lyrics that the series unlocks the part of your brain that prepares you for awesomeness to come and while the series itself isn’t as hardcore as this minute and a half, it does indeed capture the overall essence of the story being told. Why start off by referencing the opening? Maybe because it’s so damn catch and I can’t stop listening to it or maybe because, like an episode of Log Horizon, I feel as though everything should begin with what sounds like a Japanese version of a Rage Against The Machine song.
