Another entry in this list that started out as light novels and got turned into an amazing anime series, Log Horizon is one of my favorites. Technically a Sci-fi, it manages to seem almost high fantasy, if only because of the premise. Suddenly transported to the world of an MMORPG, the main characters must not only survive. They must also rebuild society as a whole, to make the life they have in this world worth living again.
Why I recommend it to Writers: The intricacies of the plot is only outpaced by the characters’ growth throughout the story. Each arc has a definitive character arc as well, and it makes me so happy to watch.
Warnings: Brief child slavery, perverted humor.
