Log Horizon Fun Fact #72:
Shiroe was 15 when he began playing Elder Tale.
He’s 23 now, started 8 years ago, which makes 15. (The minimum recommended age for playing Elder Tale, by the way.)
That also means that he either payed the subscription fee himself or got his parents/relatives to pay it for him until probably college.
I’m pretty sure it has been mentioned in the anime that he’s been playing for 12 years, making him 11 when he started
I’m not 100% confident but I don’t think I just pulled that number out of thin air…
also I’ll be the same age as Shiroe in precisely a week ❤
