Well... there were hints already about what is going on.. watch rewatch the parts where Kirito and Yuuki were "mentioned".


and the "secret" that he knows.not to mention the Ending Song..

Kirito the genius he is figured something out right away lol. Yea the previous episode Yuuki told Asuna that Kirito would not work out since he knows her secret. I have no clue what the secret is but it must be important.


Kirito told Asuna what he asked Yuuki during their match... there are hints there too :)

anyhow.. Kirito is so OP, he probably could have took down the Lvl27 boss himself.

Amazing episode, The Sleeping Knights completed their goal and i think it's fairly obvious that Asuna and Yuuki are sisters, or she's gonna die or something like that. (I'm an anime-only watcher btw)

Kirito was pretty bad ass, as always.

The OST this week was fantastic too, Madoka Magica style.



SO MUCH DOUJIN MATERIAL!


5/5

first page full of Kirito haters lol.
Kirito was fckin amazing holding of those guys without a healer, I mean he was up against swordsmans/tankers/spellcasters and only 5 I think were left lol. If he had someone healing him like Leafa he would have owned and probably would have been the one opening the door not those 5 idiots.

Kinda sad that they didn't make a Kirito/Klein vs multiple players fight scene.

We got all that happened.

They got owned for three minutes or so and then died and respawned in town.


Yep the adaptation was spot on but It would have been even cooler if the studio made the Kirito/Klein fight scene.

No most of them were left intact.

Kirito lasted for ~3mins and then got killed alongside Klein.

Didn't see Kirito's fight thumbs down.

Overall though, the episode had good moments. Not a big fan of the the season 2 drama however.

Here we have Kirito cutting down magic like a boss. Oh, Klein's also here.

The Sleeping Knights have nice teamwork. And they beat the boss too.
Asuna is fast while Yuuki is OP.
Hooray, their names are on the Swordman's Memorial. (^_^)

Seems like Yuuki HAD a sister before and Asuna seems to resemble Yuuki's sister.
And now she's crying.
I feel like I'm about to ride a feels train. (T_T)
I’m always searching for something, for someone. This feeling has possessed me I think, from that day… That day when the stars came falling.

Hot dang! Yuuki is officially my new favorite character in all of Sword Art Online. I thought Yuuki calling Asuna Nee-chan was cute and I wanted her to keeping doing so. But what is the issue with the Sleeping Knights? What's wrong with Yuuki? I AM SO CONFUSED!!!

Not a bad episode. The fights were pretty enjoyable, good dialogue and a little cliffhanger. It did get annoying with all the teasing about the mystery of Sleeping Knights and Yuuki, but guess we'll find out what happens next time. I really like Asuna, so much better Sinon...

The battle OST is amazing. You can hate SAO all you want, but the tracks are an undeniable strength of the anime.

Damn that was cool.

Yuuki and especially Asuna tore shit up in the PvP sector. Asuna has obtained god mode.

Yuuki rekt the boss at the end. Kirito and Klein were also rekt at some point. After putting up a hell of a fight I'm sure.

Drama bombs dropped constantly at the second half. From the time they left the boss room till the very end everyone was hiding some pretty big secrets. Of course this is gonna lead to some kind of feels trip by the end.

If that's the case then it's way too obvious and Asuna should have pieced it together by now.

I've disliked this season ever since they ended the Gun Art arc. I feel like no effort has been put into making this interesting anymore. "Oh there's a quest lets go do it! YA!". There's no more sense of danger anymore.

The show is not about the sense of danger though. The sense of danger came from VR which is what the show is clearly about. Not everything needs to be about danger. Danger, death etc can be present and not be harmful to everyone but a select few.

The fight wasn't too long, Asuna caught its weak spot and changed the strategy. Kirito makes a brief apperance and pawns the other group. I'm wondering how to these guys now know who Kirito is. He beat Death Gun, and is current champ along with Sinon in BoB. They were surprised he dodged those moves easily with his sword.

The arc is coming to a close, Zekken obviously is hiding something from Asuna. The tears at the end left Asuna in a confused expression.

Only 3 eps left and next episode says "Journeys End". The arc could conclude in ep 23 and ep 24 could be used as a filler. That's only if the show were to conclude in the next 2 episodes.

That is where the whole Yuuki gonna built a harem idea cames from! She wants Asuna for herself, to the point Kirito harem will be reduced by one!!

THAT would be amazing. I doubt they have the courage to do that again though after getting blasted for Aldnoah's ending.

I am pretty sure they'll do this.

Especially since announcement for sequel is possible within few days after last ep airs.

I am prepared for the incoming feels. I think.

This arc is definitely a good one so far just based on animation quality and actual interest from me. The lack of Yui/Kirito/Asuna cringe moments are already making this arc fantastic.

Starting to enjoy the series again ever since Yuuki was introduced.

They pulled out some of the best OSTs from season 1 for the battles which was awesome.

If this arc ends with no molestation/attempted rape then it will be great. :D

Nice episode. Kirito to fast for magical attacks to hit him.
Sleeping Knights vs the BOSS. Round 2.
A weakness found this time.
Some good action and Yuuki going in for the kill was great.
Poor Yuuki for tearing up.
3 more eps to go.

Hmm, I'm not really sure whats happening, but my best guess is that the Sleeping Knights are all cancer patiens or some sort of leathal illness. That is only a hteory though.


Exactly my thoughts. You beat me by six minutes.

That's what I was thinking too. That would explain their reluctance to talk about themselves.

What I don't get is Yuki? Could Asuna really have a sister she doesn't know about?

So she was with her jump just short a crouched guy to step on? Really... really?!

The episode was really cool but bullsh*t solutions like that in SAO keep me from really liking it.

24 Could be used like 14.5 was, basically just a ton of flashbacks.

This episode animation, OST is perfect in a normal anime.
Yes, in a normal anime set aside those 7 vs 20 and 2 vs those guilds back-up battle which is kinda impossible but who cares this is SAO we're talking about but.
There is one certain scene that made me go WTF and that is after Asuna discovered the weakness of the boss, she asked the other healer to take care of the support because she will tell the plan to Yuuki directly and she did.
So does that mean that the common "PARTY CHAT" doesn't exist in this game?
A futuristic game and yet, no party chat? That is a crucial one in every team fights especially boss fight and yet. -_-

7VS 20 was possible because the 7 were incredibly haxx.
2vs 40+ ended exactly as it should - the two getting owned hard.

No there is not. VR is focused on realism.

Oh god the feels of this show! Knowing what's coming makes it THAT much worse...
I literally watched this entire arc with a heavy heart... and now it's just gonna get worse :(

I hate to say it, but that wall of fame on Level 1 of Aincrad reminds me so much of those murals that they have to engrave the names of fallen soldiers. The similarities made things twice as depressing, even though it was suppose to be an achievement to celebrate about.

Kirito's parts were really diminished here. I thought we'd actually get to see Yuuki interact with him somewhat.... ah well... there's always the stuff in the next episode.

Bring on the feels! I got my goggles ready, not gonna get ninja'd by onions!

I'd imagine VR would make you use verbal communication instead of text. Still even in real life if you need to talk to someone four feet from your location you walk/run to them. Not text them lol.

This showed how strong Kirito is without being OP. Of course he is very strong but even he is not a match for a guild. He bought enough time for Asuna+Sleeping Knights to enter the boss room. Then came the badass V pose which seems to be the trend in this arc which is awesome. Yuuki obviously starting it.
