THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Man this is crazy. Just from the following,

All are shipping Kirito x Rika. Insane in Japan! I admit though they were pretty cute together during this whole episode itself.

About the beginning, the start has its merit in not only rich facials of Rika but of her teasing Asuna in the spoiler
and one can see that Rika’s faces are quite the tease aright. Personally it really left a good first impression. Rika being a nice teasing girl with rich expressions on her face.

About Rika x Kirito, decided to do a nice list as to the moments of why they were so much like that for me.
  • A first positive reaction from Rika in the spoiler
    leads to some rather insane sword breaking that leads to Rika freaking out. A good sign for a positive filled experience around.

  • Rika’s going all out of anger on Kirito in the spoiler
    had its charms far more than what Asuna turns out in the last episode as of this episode.

  • Kirito successfully making Rika in the spoiler
    not only red faced but also gives out another expressions of Rika that of being pouting. A rather nice achievement in terms of Flags to be able to stir up so much rich emotions from a girl. Kirito is amazing in female reactions.

  • Kirito playing nicely with Rika in the spoiler
    turns out rather nice happy emotions from Rika, which itself is quite positive IMO. Rika looked rather very happy and outgoing in that part.

  • Kirito being a man in the spoiler
    in making Lizbeth’s fall much more softer. A MAN OF MALES! Takes one to make a girl’s fall nicer.

  • Kirito doing the indirect kiss in the spoiler
    with that potion? Sure looks like it a lot for me. That was quite a bold move.

  • Kirito entertaining Lizbeth in the spoiler
    got more of her faces from a comedic stand point towards Kirito. I did laugh a few in that part.

  • Kirito x Lizbeth sleeping in the spoiler
    was totally the epitome of something special that sadly never pans out but still nice sleeping there with Rika being at his side.

  • Kirito grabbing like a man Lizbeth in the spoiler
    to get out of that hole. Now that is quality gentleman manners. IMO it looked rather romantic of Kirito bagging a girl. Hahaahah!

  • Kirito grabbing Lizbeth’s hands in the spoiler
    and her being this happy compared to before where she was not as much. Now that is sure nice to see. Kirito really pepped up nicely Rika with this adventure I really was under the impression she is rather feeling secretly gloomy.
So these are quite the amounting of points raised in favor of the many parts to distinguish Kirito being a man instead of a jerk like many other anime characters are to girls and most certainly loads of males in the game itself. That being said Kirito x Rika was strong in this episode.

About the fight, it was most amazing in the following,

Along with the spoiler
of at least the effects done upon damage to the dragon and him losing a limb. Now that was quite remarkable.

About thee end, if the list was not enough the end really shows out how Kirito concludes with Rika along with some Rika teasing of Asuna. Whom was quite nice in the spoiler
as Rika got Asuna to blush and tease rather will as her facials richly so show out.

While Kirito finishes on 2 strong points as well, The first being in the spoiler
simply shows how much of a nice swing he has and how much Rika reacted to it from her faces, which actually show out a much stronger blush IMO.

The second was the most astonishing one in the spoiler
Lizbeth actually cries there but I am glad she recovers somehow in thee end. Kirito showing a most positive smile out.

So it’s quite easily the most Rika x Kirito episode and for a first quite surprising of how it developed between. Now it would be nice to know how much more the LN does this. If anyone cares to share their version of it.

BTW End Art in the spoiler
and sadly the writings are a hassles this week in the episode to grab it clean.

However nice collage of both weapons in the spoiler
of this episode along with a Lizbeth Image Stitch. The weapons names quite match up nicely.

Ah fuck it, this is never gonna end.


The CG dragon looks weird. Why CG though? Ilfang was cool enough as hand drawn. Ehh.
And yeah, first love is already taken. Don't worry, I still like you Lizbeth.
So, back to volume 1 now I presume for next episode. Nice. This should shut up all the people. Let's wait for the next episode before asking if they want that episode as episode 2 or not.

Well the things is Lizbeth even has more quality than Asuna so far.

I just hope they do something as EPIC as a sleepover soon enough. Keiko and Lizbeth have so far the most brownie points in terms of scoring moves with Kirito. Asuna needs to catch up ASAP NOW! Well as of this episode I have more than enough ammo to prove of a decent Kirito x Rika coupling. Well at least the main reason.

I told many the dragon might be CG failure. I guess to a certain extend it might have been.

However make no mistake that it can become much better in the BDs. So I would not bang the final say on this one yet. Buddy.

Yep I'll be buying the BD's though I'm not sure if they will be subtitled.

Perfect adaptation. This episode took around ~70 pages, previous two took 150 each. A clear difference when something actually has time to develop.

There's also a female player who fixes weapons? Didn't realize it until her scream, but she's by Takagaki-san?

Kirito wanting a sword that's stronger than the current one? But it's too heavy!!

She's amazed at his skill against the dragon. Because of her, they fell. They had to spend the night together.

lol @ what they are finding out is dragon's poop, and they slept at dragon's house.

Now it's against two of Sphere girls for getting Kirito? After seeing Asuna, she gave up. Nice new sword, though.

Kirito is badass and so is his sword.

Poor girl Liz coming too late.

Not bad an episode. Good thing we will get the main story going, finally.

I see, that's good I guess... /waits for subs

Though... now that I think about it, I could probably watch the entire thing and understand no problem.

I thought the episode was pretty well done, it cut out some parts that would be spoilers. The only part it cut that I would complain about would be him using his sword to break the fall, but still enjoyed it without it.

But that is the end of the side stories for now, on to the main plot things should start picking up now ! :D

It's still rushing like always but they cover the important stuff so doesn't really matter, the quality of dragon feel kind of odd but that doesn't destroy most of the anime but fun to watch.

Back to main story and soon a little more sidestory.

Kirito x Asuna. :D

Correct, people are finding more ways to complain about a well directed episode, seems like it happens way more often when it comes to SAO for some reason.

Decent episode. Didn't think the dragon was too bad. I mean, it could have looked like F/SN's dragon in the anime. Now that was pretty bad.

This episode wasn't that bad, it was better than I expected it to be.
I don't know why they decided to use 3DCG to animate the dragon, but whatever, it could have been worse and atleast, we saw some "real" fight.

IIRC, I don't think they skipped important things, this episode got a pretty decent adaptation to my eyes.

4/5, because, it's been so long since the last real fight (episode 2 ?).
Also, so many lewd moments.

Ugh. The overall narrative was great but the theme and the character development just felt so rushed that it was hard for me to care. The ending was particularly jarring because it's hard to see that's how Kirito feels or how Lizbet feels. It just feels like there was no precedence for that stuff and as a result it feels out of the blue. I think this episode suffers from pacing and rushing just like episode 3 but not to the crazy degree. It's just hard to care about Lizbet and the themes of the episode when it doesn't really give you precedence or the time to sink in. Other than that, it was an okay episode. Great that it remained faithful to the SS though compared to the other SSs.

*sigh*. Oh well. It sucks that this show has the ability for so much awesome fight scenes yet it opts for still pictures for fights. Come on...

Black and white sword dance...I guess that means they are FINALLY going to start the 74th floor next episode? Wouldn't make much sense for them to start the Yui arc next since it doesn't happen till after the 74th floor ends anyways. Too many side stories turned this anime into a download just to keep it in my external HD =/
But still..was definitely one of my favorite episodes since this and Yui was the only side stories I liked in this series.

That could be positive. The interactions are so much more win to see how they intermingle together. Not often you have 2 girls of those types in shows.

Why people so complaining about the Dragon. I didn't even realize that it was CG. It looked CG just maybe just in moment it appears but not in other.

Liz is one of my favorite side stories, and largely i was very happy with this adaptation, much moreso than the last one at least! I really like Liz as a character too, but based on the name of the preview and the fact that i can't think of many more side stories that they can choose from, we're going to see alot more Asuna/Kirito action coming up. Can't wait!

OH NO NO! Rika is bound to come back later and I even know it might beyond SAO with Rika, well I heard around. Oh yeah plenty of Rika to come back and with Asuna there are chances of that too.

Well, I think they pretty much got everything that was needed in there while not being too revealing, and they even managed to make that dragon look godawful.
And there really isn't anything else to complain about, so I really don't see why there are so many complaints.
I mean, really, what is it people want to watch these days? I can name at least 13 other currently airing shows that are much, much worse than this. Actually, this is one of the best shows airing right now. Which isn't really that amazing though, considering the current state of the industry.

Also, Kirito×Liz > Kirito×Asuna.
Which, of course, does not mean that I don't like Kirito×Asuna.

Let me give you one then: 7 episodes and we're only going to Main Story next week, if that is not enough, I don't know how you can be so patient.

I wonder what is going to become of the sword Kirito forged? Gift to Asuna perhaps?

I enjoyed how Kirito acted now in comparison to the first girl he let die( I can't remember her name for the life of me atm X P). It's been like what 5 episodes since then but I feel he's grown a lot as a person.
