Since the episodes we are being reminded of have just aired, this recap is totally pointless. If, by some chance you are coming to this series for the first time, please, just watch episodes 1-14. You will not be able to make sense of them from this episode. If, like 99% of viewers, you have been watching from the beginning, you will gain absolutely no extra information, alternate view of the story, or even just new artwork. Even though this recap is told nominally from Sinon's point of view, it is provides no new material concerning the plot or the characters. ...

SAO since its debut has been famous for attracting fans, but a massive crowd of haters to bash and derail any quality it may or may not have. I would consider myself almost completely neutral, but today I was witness to the worst done recap episode of any medium I've seen:

Sword Art Online II: Debriefing. In a span of 24 minutes, this episode really didn't do this season any justice and any newcomers to this season would be completely confused on what is going on.

You know:

- Why does Kirito's avatar look like a female?
- Why is Kirito here in the first place?
- How are there ...

While I don't have any grudge against the series as whole, I have to agree with everyone one this recap episode.

It offers no additional information, or facts and doesn't sum up the first 14 episodes well at all. If you're new to the series, I HIGHLY recommend you watch all episodes 1-14 than view this recap episode; if you have been following from the beginning, then skip it. It is not a good reflection of the series at all!

The only honorable mention this recap episode gets is that in my opinion, the remade opening actually was visually quite good.
