THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Yup, I knew it. Alice would never back down from a fight and has a desire to protect people.

The situation looked grim for them though. I think when it comes down to it, it's the sheer amount of enemies they have to deal with. And can't forget that Kirito is in no condition to fight in that broken state. At least they got some familar allies joining them.

Alice girl rejoined her group.

Suwabe-san's character tried main guy, and found out he can still fight, even though he's still "Haijin" mode.

Their kouhais visited them. They are shocked to see their senpais' current condition. Alice girl told them her truth and comfort them.

The Kouhais will accompany him. It seems like Suwabe-san's character sensed mian guy is different.

Vice captain? lady expressed that she wants to thank main guy and try to wake him up. Jealousy. lol~

Meeting and mentioning that Alice girl has a power different from the group.

They met the people on the other side?

Good episode.
The more I watch this, the more I feel sorry for Kirito.

The two girls from the previous season showed up. The scene was quite emotional.

Alice's and Fanatio's little quarrel was cute. Bercouli simply walked away lol.

The Final Load Test begins.

Its nice to see all the integrity knights again. With the amount of forces that Gabriel can call upon their power is needed here more than ever. With only that few knights they really are stretched thin. Its nice to see Tiese and Ronyse again despite the circumstances. Though its sad that they had to see Kirito reduced to such a state. The convo that Alice gave to the two though while hearwarming also showed just how much meeting Kirito and Eugeo had changed her. Fanatio really has changed quite a lot since her dual both in attitude and appearance. Given the enemies size and the terrain that they have using the ravine is sound strategy but the lack of natural resources sure makes the use of magic difficult. Fanatio's gamble of having the army hold the ravine while Alice gathers the energy to use her magic though sure was a bold but risky strategy. Overall a calm but strong ep that allowed the series to reunite us with the core knights of the order and as well as that of Kirito and Eugeo's dear valets all of which will be required in the upcoming war. The expansion upon Alice's character via both her inner fear and her desire to be equal to the others was also welcome. Can't wait to see what happens when the war begins next ep. The final scenes that showed the knights and their opposite numbers within the forces of darkness with their respective units was a nice touch as well showing well the tension thats about to break when the gate falls.

Alice has officially become Godlier waifu for me, I don't think anyone comes close for me. Seeing my favourite part of vol 16 animated has been great and A-1 have done an amazing job with the OST, art, animation, everything is just so bright and gorgeous. I'm really excited. I don't get how the MAL ranking has dropped from 8.2 to 7.88, people rating 1's and 2's and doing reviews. If you hate SAO that much just don't watch it, man. We're 4 seasons in at this point, why bother yourself and hurt the score like that?

Good episode.

Alice and Fanatio's little back and forth made me laugh.

Somehow I find it strange that they brought Kirito to battle despite his current state. When Alice mentioned Tiese and Ronie were gonna take care of him when they were out on the battlefield I assumed it meant they would stay back at camp but I guess not.

This battle should be exciting.

How long does it take for Asuna to show up? It's been too long already. The "Dark" madman had time to organise his pawns and put them in front of the gate. Asuna is taking too long to reveal herself.

Alice looked so cute in casual clothes and sigh Asuna still ain't here yet. Also damn the ed song really boosted the impact of the last scene, the start of the war.

Why did the two gurls freaking bring a spaced-out Kirito on the battlefield ??


That's was a nice build-up episode though

This episode gave me the feeling that there will be a lot of characters that are not going to make it. Death flags popping out all over the place.

Alice is a really endearing character. Her nobility and strength of character are really evident in every episode. I hope that they don't spoil her like some of the other previous girls by making her a useless damsel in distress before the end.

A emotional and buildup episode!

Alice is back to integrity knights group in order to defeat that great threat from dark territory!

Bercouli managed attack Alice to test Kirito, and seems Kirito, even in this state, is capable to protect Alice, seems he still can fight!

Tiese and Ronie are back, they wanted to visit Kirito and Eogeo, Alice decided to show them the truth, and it surely was a heartbreaker moments with a lot of feels, and seems Eogeo is stil inside the sword!

Alice and Fanatio discussion because Bercouli was funny, didn't expect that from Alice xD

I didn't expect Kirito to be in battlefield aswell!

I want Asuna!

Looking foward next episode!

If they actually brought Kirito out into the battlefield I'm guessing that this is where he wakes up.

That was heavy AF....x_x I loved the drama of the ending; the ED song is much better when it's used at moments like this.

Funny you say that because I find their character designs to be too similar.

I'm sure hilarity will ensue since Kirito can't speak for himself.

It's the bronze skin man. Amps up the hotness.

Love it when LiSa's ED starts playing, it fits so well.

Can a novel reader spoil me how/when Kirito wakes up from his vegetative state?

So Kirito can subconsciously use Incarnation still to protect his friends, pretty neat. Hope Asuna gets there soon to snap him out of that trance though

Kinda pointless episode imo. Just the showing of that even if Kirito is just sitting there more dead than alive he has his Harem.

I just hope the 2 younglings actually do something in the future.

Man, all the characters are really jerking off Kirito's praises. Some of it makes sense and all, considering his situation and past behaviour but man, it's getting excessive. Everything from harem bs to sword/battle master shit. Perhaps it wouldn't be as bad if Alicization was a standalone and this didn't happen every season.

It's better than the villain episodes, something all manga and anime seem to struggle with, but overall, it was pretty normal, especially for SAO. I can't say it's as amazing as everyone seems to thing. Just normal build up. It just looks and sounds really good cuz A1 SAO effort.

I forgot if Alice already knows from last season that Kirito is from the "God" world.


Anyway, next episode we will see lots of "fuructolaitos" being wasted.

Kirito is one popular guy, Fanatio has took a liking in him. Damn, I wanted the "that" and "this" she wanted to do him ;-)

I wonder where is Asuna, I sort of miss her? She did dive into the world, so she must be somewhere.
