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.

Alice, don't kiss comatose boys xD

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.

Ok, so far we see Alice having some kind of affection for Kirito and already, we see her displaying a from of jealousy towards Fanatio, so what will happen if Asuna gets into the picture????

Fanatio is hot but not as hot as Lipia

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.

Kirito's literally already a vegetable and yet there are still women fighting over him lol. A great episode overall, I'm excited to see the next episode knowing it will be action-packed. I also can't wait to see Asuna.

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.

Quite a dark and foreboding atmosphere. I'm genuinely really liking this season, which is surprising. I enjoyed the first half of last season, but I felt it finished poorly. I hope this isn't the same

Good to see Ronie and Tiese in good health again. I can imagine finding out what happened to Kirito and Eugeo must have been tough.

That bickering between Alice and Fanatio was too funny. Loved how Bercouli backed out of that right before they wanted his say.

So the battle is finally going to start next week! This is gonna get pretty intense!

Hmm... don't quote me on this, but in the LN, don't they slowly ease into the oncoming battle with more exposition as to the politics of the Empire after the Potifex's fall, as well as more downtime with the synthesis knights? I'm pretty sure I remember Renri(?), who I think was one of the champions of the yearly tournament, brooding about just being reawoken considering her recent failures. She gets a confidence boost and reluctantly joins the frontlines. Saying more would be legit spoilers, but it seems they are skipping this information? Hard to tell... I also remember another scene with the two trainees "talking" with Kirito. Maybe my memory is just bad; it has been like 4 years since I read it.

Anyway, what an amazing ending to the episode. So much more than I was expecting, and man was I impressed by it. I wasn't too happy with the first cour of Alicization, but this arc has been on-point so far.

We'll see Asuna verrrrrry soon. Wonder how they'll spin her entrance? (trying to be cryptic there)

I mean, this episode IS the setup for the rising action that will/should be next episode. Character building, world building, inciting more attachment to the viewer, driving home how important it is that Kirito snaps out of his current state, and slowly rolling out the gloom and doom - the Empire is mostly unaware of what's going on, and those that do already think they have lost.

I will say that the presentation/execution was off, though. The episode's pacing should have been slower, IMO. Show the daily lives of the citizens, the panic in their "government", the rallying of volunteers to join the ranks (many of which have never even fought before), the preparations at the wall, the inner deliberations of the enemy side as they form ranks, etc.

Instead, half of the episode was harem building. Yes, that was also in the LN, but of all the things to take precedence...

Basically:

- Now we know who the villain is and what he wants.

- We know what happened until now with all the characters remained from last season.

- We know that Alice totally fell in love for Kirito-kale.

- We know that Asuna-sama will come, okay since the last season. Someday. We hope.

OKAY, now let them kill and be killed!

- reversing the order of this is disastrous for any plot -

YOOOOOOOOOOOOO MY BOY RENRI AND MY GIRL SCHETA FINALLY APPEARED, THAT BLACK LILY SWORD LOOKS SO FUCKING BEAUTIFUL HOLY

oh they skipped Gabriel's and Vassago talk before the gate breaks, welp

for the ones waiting asuna's appearance, dont put your hopes up, she only appears at the end of volume 16, and we completed volume 15 in this episode, so yeah lol

the incarnate sword scene is dumb as it was in the novel, nice, A-1 keeping the cringe from the novel

Finally we can see the good characters from Alicization do something/5

except alice, alice can just go fuck herself

The episode would be way more interesting if it was written that way. Instead, this build up felt more like they were just postponing the start of the war

The Asuna wait goes on.

For now, let's get to the action next episode.

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?

Read benjia279's review (Nov 3rd, it was top review until the 12th), it's so full of delusion you can see why people are trying to brigade the score of this show xD

Strong episode and the ending song is fit perfectly with the tone of before-the-war scene.

Lots of death flag planted, tho. Still, It is the best episode of current season SAO so far.
