THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Welp, if there's one thing that gives LLEEN an advantage, it's that she's hard to hit with her character model size in battle. It helps that she can sneak in attacks too.

I still feels like LLEEN and M make a strange duo. They're just so different although on the battlefield, the two works well as a pair. Oh yeah, one thing I want to mention is that M is great as a defensive support and sniper. (I remember playing the GGO game recently and he's a solid pick for a party if you need some firepower support. Lol, I noticed the TV version actually advertises the game too)

The action was nice and it kept its momentum. I still wonder how the storytelling will develop as I feel that needs more work. Lol M's reaction.

The story is continued from the end of ep.1, it seems.

The guy she teams up with is good at maps.

Battling against the remaining enemies. They have ships.

Wow, that thing in his bag, he must be strong to shoulder that heavy stuff (at least looks heavy for me) and still run so long in ep.1. With that he can one shot the enemies while blocking the shots.

Meaning of the game? Only good at long distance gunshot?

The one enemy team got near them so fast. She got shot but didn't lose.

After reading the letter, that huge guy aims at her. She locked his gun so she's safe.

He turns out (mentally) weaker than he looks as he burst out tears and say he doesn't want to die.

That was a good episode.

The battle was pretty cool to watch and M-san is pretty pro eh? I guess real world shooting experience helps in GGO since he doesn't have to rely on hip fire + aim assist.

What's with that ending though? I feel like M-san is trying to pull some kind of stunt to defeat the last team but I can't seem to see what exactly he is trying to do here.

I bet the author of this LN never played MP game in his life, because the "last team" was not a team, but a fucking army LOL

Also the mental breakdown of M at the end is probably safe bet that he is in real life another light novel loser character ... what a shame.

M is very skilled, he managed to take out almost everyone on those hovercraft. Got to know a bit more how shooting works. Now they are being chased by a big team. That ending though. I was expecting him to betray her, but not how he was acting afterwards. I wonder why he's doing this.

I first thought the enemies didn't see the bullet line because M had to aim far ahead due to the enemies moving in a hover, but the bullet assist thing is fine too. It will probably be important later.

M is as chicken as he said to be lol which makes sense since each character is supposed to be quite opposite of their real life's self.

Finally an episode with action. The way M killed them all was with style, he a very skilled player damn. The way they explained the bullet circles was interesting.

LLENN got lucky for having a small character model. There is only 1 team left, and they had the advantage for a while. M's and LLENN interactions while in the battlefield is scary. That ending with M LOL.

Fine episode. Liked the action but again, I'm just struggling with LLENN and everyone else. I just cant give a fuck for any of them for me to be invested in this show.

Still, good ending for this episode. M came off as such a geek and I loved it XD

It was pretty obvious that the last enemy team would move in on the teams that clashed first, so they should've seen that coming. At least hide before the scan. It's what they've been doing up till now at that. What changed? Also, if he was planning to shoot her anyway, he could've left her behind when she got shot already. Where's the logic here? It almost seems like some kind of initiation where you take out your partner after you've gotten close to them.

This was almost a perfect episode. It ended exactly where i thought it would but the after-credits scene was unnecesary, they should have left all the brain-dead story stuff for next week, there was no need to ruin the mood in this episode as M shooting LLENN was a perfect cliffhanger.

Welp whatever, at least yet again they don't create false expectations so the after-credits scene was at least good in that regard, plus they presented the M situation in a semi-comedic fashion instead of nonsensical grim fashion like the ln.

And action scenes were yet again really satisfying.

Oh boy, next episode...

The suitcase tactic though was just overwhelmingly effective lol. Thats some skill that M has in navigation though. Wow to think that one of the teams managed to get their hands on not just one but four hovercraft. To think that gun shields exist in the game though. But M's skills as a sniper sure is amazing. The bullet circle is handy but not indicative of your actual skill i guess. The last team though sure is proving to be a tough one. Hmm quite the action packed episode with an explosive twist in the end. I wonder what that letter said.

"I'm sorry."

The pink loli munchkin said as she murdered a guy to death for the crime of playing a VR game, turning his corpse into a fine red mist with her beloved husbando, P-chan. This is the fate of all who cross LLENN.

"DID YOU SEE THAT M? I TOTALLY MURDERED A GUY TO DEATH!"



Does anyone remember that time in the original GGO arc where Kirito thrusted a guy to death with his totally-not-a-light-saber stick thingy as they both screamed in borderline-orgasmic horror for an entire minute? It was simultaneously too terrifying and hilarious to take seriously. They were going for an epic moment, but it just turned out so bad it looped around to almost being a meme. It's as if the show was literally mocking its own pacing by making Kirito stab a guy for a full minute.

Or thirty seconds.

A stab shouldn't take that long. Seriously.

Don't f*ck with the murder loli. M learned his lesson.
Ravioli ravioli, Kirito will not touch the loli.

Somebody please spoil me in a DM. I have NOT READ AHEAD but my guess is they will really die now for some reason? From M’s reaction it seems like he won’t just be logged out. Looks like the letter says it’s a real death game this time. Maybe too obvious? Or I am way off base and he really is just a chicken, perhaps an Aincrad survivor who doesn’t trust it won’t kill him??? Can’t wait a week...

How I see it, either the Pito (who is supposedly Elsa Kanzaki, as discussed each episode before) threatened him in the letter to finish the game or something, or that is a psychological attack to disrupt the opponent's understanding of oneself. At least this way I would be able to accept this stunt. But hey, in a week.

THAT ENDING, though... Not gonna lie, it cracked me up. Cuz, the thing is, as soon as M pulled out that letter and started to read it, I knew exactly what he was going to do. And that's without any familiarity with the source material. I'd even venture a guess that it was Pito that put him up to it. Having said that, I'm not sure whether or not she's going to be LLENN's actual adversary/antagonist. But, I've gotten that vibe from Pito since the moment she was introduced. What would her reasoning be? I've no idea. But, that's why I'm still watching -- and loving -- this series!

...what the fuck...

They are playing a video game. Game physics never match up to real world physics. The grenade could either be a timer bomb or a button detonation bomb (she called it a deca-nade). We don't know but as I said, it's a game so anything is possible.

This series is seriously enjoyable. I gotta play GGO.
but LLENN unloading an entire mag on the guy, then says sorry; that's gotta raise some brows 'cause shes meant to just be a girl with height issues 😕

The double crossing was funny though, what would you really have against the adorable LLENN, she's just a little chibi (that may need a psych eval)😐

This was probably one of the lamest fight-outs I've ever seen in anime... Also, I'm curious, couldn't LLENN use her super speed/agility to easily dodge the bullets? I mean, she did that before when enemies were only a few feet away from her...

And all that exposition about aiming and whatnot, over and over, WE GET IT SAO. WE GET HOW THE WHOLE LINE THING WORKS. YOU DON'T NEED TO HOLD OUR HANDS, THIS IS NOT KINDERGARTEN. Smh...

Lemme guess, he probably has something to do irl, so he decided to kill LLENN and give up on the match.

I'm actually enjoying this more than I thought.

I don't care if the game mechanics are different when compared to the real world, nor I want to watch some "professional" play (I think the whole idea of eSports laughable).

If it is fun, it is enough.

Close enough dude ..

You shouldn't open my next comment, if my speculation based on the information i gather

Yeah, you already watch the episode 3, right ? You can imagine the hint yourself.. "M" was looking at the message Pitohui give to him, and to open it he must wait until the right time.

weird cliff hanger there, I suspect its not what it looks like at all, to be honest this series so far is definitely better than SAO but it still seems the writers can't quite figure out how to make the MC seem beatable, LLEENN just feels kind of unbeatable at times, especially with M's master tactics and apparent ability to do anything, I feel like the writers tried to fix this issue that was so prevalent in SAO by spreading the god-like perfection across two different characters but since their always together it doesn't help much...perhaps after this cliff hanger it won't be an issue anymore?

Yeah but if one team approached faster than you thought because they had a vehicle, and you knew you weren't going to be moving far, wouldn't it be logical to think the other team may have a vehicle too? I just thought that would be something they may consider but idk

So professionals, who want some extra "real life" experience do use bullet line, but this guy don't, I see. Also he is good tactician, but stays at open during scan because they were far away and there are vehicles in this game...

It's sad that they hire people with brain damage to make extra series.

That was genius by M to have LLENN hide in the suitcase like that.

Seems that M has some kind of photographic memory when it comes to maps, that's an incredible skills.

Hovercrafts, now that is cool, what was even cooler was that armor and then the plan M had to win that fight.

He's dead LLENN, you only shot him around 200 times lol.

M is a pro at shooting in real life, that helped out an incredible amount here, his skill is very impressive.

I had a strange feeling that the other team would be close by when that scan started, luckily they didn't get hit too bad and have those med kits to heal themselves

Wow what a twist at the end there, LLENN outsmarted M though with that safety on the gun, guess we'll find out next time what was on that letter that made M do that and then he started crying like a baby, I am very confused.

My only guess is that something happened in real life.

They were so far away that they didn't think they'd close the gap and get into shooting distance so fast. It was a mistake, yes, but an understandable one.

I don't think he was planning on killing her the entire time. I'm pretty sure the letter told him to. Who that letter was from and why he decided to follow it's instructions without hesitation are the real questions here.
