These side stories are getting boring, the idea of teleporting when your armor gets destroyed is clever, but everything else in this episode was so simple I could expect it.
At least some character development is happening with the 2 main characters though.
I almost never read discussions after I made my post, if you want to reply PM me or post on my profile page.

Another episode which didn't really excite me at all. On to the next one we go.
I still hope it's gonna get better.

I'm not very happy with how they paced many of the scenes.

Next episode is gonna be ruining the Lisbeth arc. Great.

Could anyone tell me which volume and chapter of the novel they animated in this episode? Will they animate everything in 25 episodes?

The only 2 episode side story and it's hilariously cut cut cut.

You would think they would've added proving Grimlock's crime when they freaking cut out literally everything

Volume 8 "Early and Late"

A Murder Case in the Area (Aincrad 57th floor, April 2024)

Not everything. Just most of the first four novels.

From what I understand, at some point in the novel, they do a timeskip with new characters and such. They're animating the side-stories first to introduce the characters into the story so it'll make sense later on..

I enjoyed this episode. I was surprised how quick they solved the case.
And I love how they are setting up the Kirito and Asuna relationship :)
And of course can't forget about that fanservice pic of Asuna at the end so SMEXY!!
5/5

Feel that the mystery could have been resolved much better, but that's just me after reading the LNs xP

Love all the Asuna X Kirito moments as well. Can't wait to see them get together as a couple in the anime.

Next episode's Lizbet's side story. She's not a character i particularly like, but hey, at least we're getting on with the main story after her episode. :)

Pretty good conclusion.... But mystery was solved rather quickly.....

Anyway I'm starting to hate Asuna, she's becoming a bitch.

Still can't believe they consider a +6 AGI ring rare. In most MMO's / RPG's it would be considered trash. The stat system must be pathetically stingy.

I agree, I remember that it was a +20 Agi ring. That would be an uber boost to players like Asuna, or Argo lawlz. XD

Rather, there will be actual fighting for once... Lol. Past few episodes haven't had anything major since Ep 2. They might have a spoiler in Ep 7 as well.

I'm probably gonna jump to the LN if this show doesn't pick up on a central story soon.

And the show seems to be moving way too fast. We're already on floor 70something in the 5th episode.

It was okay. I still don't understand why this show has a high rating. Then again, I rarely understand the masses.

Damn, Asuna's tsundere side is so annoying to watch.

Kirito should have killed those members of the PK guild - didn't he say he was willing to get his hands dirty in the loli episode? I took it that he was willing to kill PKers... Not sure though, somebody might wanna correct me on that. And the conclusion to the mystery arc was so... cheesy. It reminded me of those typical Fairy Tail baddies who get a lecture from the hero and then get dragged away.

I lol'ed at the plastic and pragmatic thing.

This anime is getting worse and worse... Its becoming so typical now. Was a loner before than starts to open up to people. I would have liked if they kept him a bit more self composed and manly but considering the target audience I shouldnt have even expected that...

it was a different situation, the PK guild before in episode 4 were just a bunch of low level thugs, most of them were just orange and greens without many of them being red, kirito would have no problems disposing them if he wanted to

however laughing coffin is an elite Pking guild with most of their members being in the red, they aren't weak either as they usually stay in the front lines to PK the high levelled players, so they gain lots of xp while also getting the high level equipment

kirito wouldn't be able to take on all three of them at the same time, especially when one of them has a poison dagger capable of paralysing you, even with his high level he wouldn't be able to win, at best he could hold them off for a while until reinforcements come along, which kirito was actually bluffing about but luckily they took the bait and let them go

And so, Kirito x Asuna begins.

Ending of the mystery arc wasn't too bad, although the scene where Asuna gives Grimlock a scolding felt awkward. It was like a little a kid being told they were naughty and then having a good sulk while being dragged to the 'naughty corner'. I would have liked to see some action between Kirito and Laughing Coffin though, ah well.

I can't believe people can actually eat this cheese layered on 10 more layers cheese. It was like watching something made by a 12-year-old feminist.


Ahahah, this. Then he must drop to his knees in sheer agony upon, strangely, coming to terms with her words instantly.

lol? thats ridiculous ~_~

In the UTW version it's simple as:



¬ Idk, It might have been for some humor purposes, but honestly; its small differences like that which can change the whole atmosphere and meaning of a scene. I can understand why some ppl may found it mediocre due to translation like that =/

kamikaze_1996 said:

is it just me? or has kirito's hair gotten longer?
it seems like it has gotten considerably longer as the series has progressed and he is looking more and more like the kirito from the LN


¬ Yeah that's what I noticed to!!:

(Hawt close up shot of Kirito's face~)


¬ And luv him at the end to, such a way with his words <3

Good for you.

You'll get the wholesome context of the novel. Then you'll be in perennial "critic mode" watching the anime, swearing up and down that they're doing it "wrong", while being unable to stop watching because you can't wait for the next episode.

We're sucking you in!

NOOOO!!

I'll start to read the side stories of what already happened :<

i know right? i was like "is that all? that can't be it"

i recommend you read the LN version because they handled the whole thing so much better, the only thing they did right in the anime was the build up of kirito's and asuna's relationship and introducing laughing coffin along with the marriage system

EDIT: wait on second thought, don't, its got a lot of spoilers that were cut out in the anime

eh it was okay. looking forward to the next arc now.

I mean the guy basically paid people to murder his wife, and what happens to him? his former friends just ..... take him off? he should be imprisoned for life or put down.

the mystery part was kinda lame. they just lost dura and teleported. what? oh well.

That was possibly the worst motive for murder I've ever seen. I also like how Kirito and Asuna are all romantic now despite only knowing eachother for 3 episodes.

Well, they do have a prison within the game. THere wasn't any word at what his friends did to him, though, so who knows where they took him.

In the novel, he sent a message to Klein telling him to hold the reinforcements in the city because they left. I don't know how much of a bluff it was, but he showed up with the full intent of fighting (even though his entrance showed otherwise xD).

my mistake then, my memory is little foggy from that time, i think he also took an anti-poison pot beforehand, but i still don't think he could take on all three of them at once although he would give them a run for their money
