THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION. DO NOT DISCUSS THE LIGHT NOVEL BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Pretty good episode overall with the gameplay setup. Oh Shiro, you just never cease to surprise me. On another note, I find Clammy to be an interesting character this episode. Shame there won't be enough time for development given the length of the show.


Poor Steph as usual..she never ever gets a break.

Wish they would've taken more time with the Othello game, rather than that fan service. But at least the game against the warbeasts has finally started.

As usual, this is a transition episode with some obligatory silly fanservices (not that i hate it though)

The final game (of this season) has started, and Kuuhaku already doomed lol

inb4 people yelling and yammering how SAO-ish the next game

I'm pretty sure there's one more game after this one, albeit a short one.

I still haven't seen the episode, but I've read the novels.... how will you compare a gun fighting game and a swords and magic (in second part of SAO) game???

Anyway I really wanna see if they will animated the all game, including the shot Sora made against Shiro almost at the end... That's a must, considering it's part of the strategy plus pure fan-service...

Hmm... the VR aspect in this game is already enough to incite the future comparisons. Well i already know what happened in that game so i don't really care actually.

And i don't think there will be any significant cut like what they did with the previous episode since

Don't get me wrong, but if people say this is based on or even compare it to SAO just because of full body dive virtual reality system, Then.... I wonder if it would not be more correct to talk about the Matrix or something else that came before that....
For decades it's been a fantasy of every science fiction fan to be able to join a full body dive game system. SAO didn't invent this concept, it's been around for many years before....

Anyway...

You say they already started chapter 4? then they'll most probably


At least one can hope that | | (^_^) / /

That bath scene was very funny.
I didn't expect the game to be set in Tokyo though
Sora and Shiro must really hate the outside world.

You take a bath together and your friends forever.

Pretty good episode. Like how Sora is trying to get everyone to be friends. Lot of fun in the bath. Also love the fact that Kurumi and Sora are teasing each other with their memories. Seems like the game has begun. Can't wait to see how this plays out.

5/5

Another great ep! Introductions were funny. Well I'm glad all the trust is worked out. Pretty funny how it all falls apart just from being back in Tokyo. xD Well surely they won't let it end like that. I can't wait to see how it unfolds next ep!

Fun ep. Great build up :D

Lol'd at how Sora introduced Kurami with her 3 sizes XD

Fil and Jibril's hatred towards each other was so lol XD Poor Jibril had to lick her feet

But well...Jibril is totally M for her master's so she didn't mind it seems XDXD

Then when Steph complained they said it's her own fault lol XD

Sora getting flustered by Kurami copying his 'getting wings to fly speech' was lol XD
It's rare to see him blush like that XD

Miko's voice is awesome :3 Poor Izuna-tan :( She seems sad.

Nice speech by Sora at the end until...He sees "Tokyo" XD The NEET inside of Kuuhaku is too strong XD

Oldest example I can think of off the top of my head would be "I have no Mouth and I must Scream" by Harlan Ellison, dates to 1967. Of course in that story it wasn't a game, but it involved being taken in whole into a computer. Won't ruin the story, but it is a classic. So anything thinking that SAO or Hack invented the concept are just ignorant.

Good episode for a transition, have no idea what is going to happen, the preview made it seem like a combat game, which of course "warbeasts" would be good at, but there were a couple of things that looks like clues that suggest that, as in all the games played, the game is merely the framework for the real fight.

Points:
1) The Warbeast Shrine Princess showed up there as they were going under, so she is the cheat.
2) Izutan doesn't like how the warbeasts cheat, so Sora's words to her will have meaning
3) Sora's emphasis on "cheats" is going to somehow be a distraction, as is having Fi in place. What it will do is to narrow the possible choices the warbeasts will have, which of course will make it more likely for Sora to guess what they are doing.

Looking forward to the next two episodes, should be an interesting fight.
4) Ultimately this is going to be Shiro's game to win

Nice episode, it actually covered way more than I expected ;-)

I only noticed 2 scenes that were missing and neither of those would be essential for what will be coming now (although I would have liked to see Fiel's reason why she wanted to bath, well even without that we saw enough scenes that show her being intelligent and a bit two-faced ;-))

Ah yes this game is a bit complex but it unites 2 of the most liked genres of videogames in it and actually I wouldn't mind it to play it for real ^^

pretty good with the guessing there, but you've missed ONE point, that will be detrimental to the game.

Another golden episode. Seriously, all this show needs is at least one more male character.
Still score increased to 10/10 after this.

Wanted to say that since you wrote that you wanted to see Shiro to win/plan a game last episode but refrained from it in the end.

What you wanted may come earlier as you expected ;-)

Well, we have Tet, the "Big Bad", then Ino, the Big BAMF Wolf and finally Sora, the "Big Bad Wolf"...

On the other side, we have Shiro, Steph, Kurami, Fiel, Jibril, Izuna and Miko. Not that major a difference in count, to be honest.

I meant one more main male, these two barely have screentime :( So it feels way too haremy for my taste.

Also that scene when Jibril had to lick Fiel's feet, was that a reference to Sharin no Kuni?

Perhaps, but that is a old meme, I remember it going back to Kare Kanojo, so I think it is something that Japanese TV actually did in the past. The music is always some fairly well known piano piece (forgetting who this one was, think it was Chopin), and they always have some natural scene.

This was a great transitional episode, and built up both Kurami and Fi quite a bit, which was something that was lacking in the earlier episodes. I wonder how they will survive being out in the real world? Maybe it will all come down to Steph, so she can prove herself?

I was kind of surprised that they cut the foot licking scene, you'd figure something like that would have been shown for sure, considering the ecchi nature of the show.

Lol No.... that's just you lying to yourself... This is one of the WORST EPISODES in this show HELL it might even be worse episode 2. All they did was introduce themselves again with the past of harem cow #4 and the elf mom. It treats its viewers like the can't remember ANYTHING from the other episodes mocking our intelligence. Or the latter the studio madhouse decided they wanted to have 2 episodes of pure flat out action and decided that they just needed to stall out for time and make this episode basically into a recap...

1 - If you think this is a harem, you are very, very wrong.
2 - The relationship between Kurami and Feel hasn't been introduced before. And neither was Elven Garde's way of treating conquered races.

They barely did any recapping in the episode, maybe like 2 minutes (And I think I'm being generous there) And while I do have to agree, that those 2 minutes could have been used better, but you make them out to be the devil for petty thievery.

So they game will be surviving in the big city the question is will Sora and Shiro overcome their fears and solve the game.
Or will it be up to Steph and Jibril.

Best part of this episode is that we got so much Kurami it was very interesting to watch.
I am definitely looking forward of seeing more of her the next couple of episodes.

Not talking about their past, I'm talking about the jokes in the episodes. Like elf's reason to hate jil... even though we can probably tell from jil talking about the great war between the races in episode 7, Why Sora wants to take a bath with them, harem cow #4 asking can you really win this... just endless shit we all know what the answer is going to be if we just use our heads in the sightless and we already know the answer for. Honestly they just keep repeating the same cliche jokes. Thinking it will still be funny... when it's obviously not...

Not only that, we saw the reason why Sora let the riots happen, or did you guess that beforehand?

We saw another part of the past war which is important to understand the underlying grudges the races still have till now between each other.

Also Kurami and Fiel are not part of Sora's "harem"...Fiel only cares for Kurami and Kurami just started to respect and accept Sora nothing more.

And exactly where was it mocking the viewers intelligence? Pls give some examples.

EDIT: Ah yes but you understand that ONE Flugel alone destroyed an entire city and killed thousands of people in a matter of some minutes?
That is a bit more than was said in ep 8, wasn't it?
