THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------


O nice, the ALO arc starts with those elf ears. I also lol'd @ Sugu's scene with the cupcake, ha.



Some aerial action at the end there as well and ah, the ending.

That guy who helped him with the weapon is a bartender in RL!!

About new game. And the company for the game is by the "fiance"?? Kirito in elf/fairy form is nice. Wow, he still has the records from SAO and can meet Yui, who is a pixie.

LOVE the BGM when he practice flying and during the battle by the two new characters (kind of like Tsubasa).

lol~ @ Kirito's sudden appearance and beating the enemies out!

Missed the first 5 minutes or so...

Stage-rocket fairies ftw.
Sugu with her hands on her legs makes it seem like she's in heat about sleeping with Kirito. I'm sure this'll cause some commotion later :P
Yui-chan is back! And as loli as it gets with being a little fairy.
Beater to Cheater. I'm with Kirito, I'll hesitate as well in deleting those items.
And here comes Lyfa and Recon. Being Recon is suffering really, got taken out by the Salamanders.
And Kirito to the rescue. He was so OP here that I'm sure people will complain again about it.
Still a good place to leave the episode. It's a decent pace I guess.

For me during this episode Yui coming back and Suguha being sexy are the most memorable TBH. You can’t go wrong when Suguha is being shown in the following,

Along with a rather sexy play of feet in the spoiler
despite having chocked on food and perhaps Another’s bad luck coming to her, it was quite a hilarious/sexy mixture TBH.

About the beginning, other than the Suguha part, Agil in the spoiler
was TOP NOTCH! Man is clean and has a business. I respect that one. I would be the first one to go to his bar and talk with him over the shit he went through in the game. AHAHHAH! Good times I say.

Agil’s explanation in the spoiler
of how the new world works was fascinating. Especially the map itself. It shows how the world is done there. The pointy towers place looks nice. I like that port town. A CIRCUS PART? Notice that tent? Oh boy! Looks fun if they put in clown elves. The Aztec temple looks cool and obviously the middle Tree is the legendary Mana tree, right? The being said, this makes for quite a good conversation for speculations.

About the start of Alfheim Online, the spoiler
does make a nice intro with the races. I would so take the big guy that is like a Barbarian.

About Yui’s come back, as Kirito finds that item in the spoiler
And the sequence for Yui’s come back are started I was quite pleased with the following,

As the transformation was quite pleasing along with the lights and SFX it came with. The emotional toll was well done I find and reminding a little of her past despite not being so far off in episode count. It’s plain too bad in thee end that Kirito turned her into a small size in the spoiler
despite looking cute and all. Well it makes quite a nice change IMO. Yui’s cheerfulness and positiveness will bring most likely good vibes towards this series. Yui’s smile was positive and good in this part. It’s amazing really.

About Lyfa, the firs intro of her in the spoiler
Showed how the monsters are and I was surprised of the fact fire was spilled out. So is there magic to use as skills or just the monsters have it? Regardless they sure showed Lyfa’s breasts easily. The protruding or as they say the fact they stand out easily was shown quite well in her fight. Oh well better get Sekirei adapted into the fights if they are going to be like that.

Things really got amazing with Kirito in the spoiler
guy BOSSES OUT! Taking on the enemy like that and defeating them. Like a Boss really. Specifically when he grabbed that lance and slashed the enemy after.

So in conclusion the episode did good with Yui comeback and Suguha getting sexier along with Lyfa intro. Better watch out for the breasts, they can be enticing coming from her.

BTW End Art in the spoiler
is the BEST and most of all THE MOST AMAZING art in the whole series. No need to look further than the quality of this piece that shows Lyfa!

Kirito figure in the spoiler
Quite surprised one came out too. I did not really see figures of Alexander the Great or Gilgamesh done despite them being popular males too.

There is also a debate that Suguha looks like the girl in the spoiler
and I wonder about it.

GIFs are done in the club:

Speaking of Yui... there's already some funny picture made by the guys at 2ch, lol.
Lyfa and Recon finally appears!

I am loving the BGM for this Arc so far :D

She is kind of, I mean her hands being there kind of alludes to that as much as other setups did the same in other series. You should know that one and hence why the txt was done. I will add that the hands allude to her privates itching for Kirito's thing if you wanted the TBH of whom I really think of the allusion itself.

Oh I know, my friend shared it with me. I told him I find those guys as little kids on Viagra. You are referring to the spoiler
which goes back to hentai fairy stuff whom a series was done that is popular. I won't go further than that and HAHAHAAAAHH at the pic.

Lol.

I got tired of doing that. Not fun anymore.
The main thing I can see people complaining would be Kirito keeping his stats along with being OP and defeating those Salamanders. Both have reasonable explanations but people probably can't accept it. I'm hoping they give out the explanation for the latter in the next episode, most probably from Lyfa.
Yui would be included in the complaints but we already saw her in the OP song so it's not much of a surprise.

It would be nice if people were complaining only about one thing in every ep.SAO didnt reach 19000+ posts because people here were that reasonable....

For LN people, can you check my post on page 1 and reply towards MAP stuff and Class choices? They should be clearly outlined on my post and it's not long as others usually are.

They showed them being chased indeed by monsters but instead it looks like Kirito rescued her from them instead of running in. LN change?

I'm more surprise they can actually do such a beautiful animations, I didn't expect that first episode of this arc should be this good, feel like the pace of this arc will be better comparing of the long SAO arc.
I'm all happy to see Yui again. Hehe :)

THANKS BUDDY! I needed that confirmation a little. So it's only fire or ice too? I wonder of that and I wonder if it's only monsters who have it? OP shows Lyfa using it with Kirito so I assume he will learn FIRE 1, FIRE 2, FIRE 3?? FF style?

I havent seen it yet but in the pics in the first page I am sure they are players of the Salamander race.I dont remember what magic each race can use though except for Kirito's...

I am still O_O at how all the locations are done in English. All makes sense and I hope we have a circus show with the Pucas.

I also hope to see Leprechauns make a new sword for Kirito.

WOW THIS IS GREAT! I have nothing more to say then to await the unfold. Might as well make some time to GIF the spells. It will be quite something to make and keep.

Surprised. Definitely had more motion and action than in the previous episode.

Also the introduction into the new world was nice. It didn't seem too abrupt or confusing. Yui did a good job explaining the situation.

Vary nice! I enjoyed this one.

It's actually more of foreshadowing than crappy plot device to make Kirito OP from the start :)

And yeah, animation quality was in short decline this week, guess budget is slowly running out.

Lol, Crunchyroll subs saying "Leafa" gg.

Not a bad episode at all, but so much detail left out from the LNs.. The whole intro part for Lyfa and Recon was left out entirely. Shame.. But oh well, time constraints must be hard to get over.

ALO would be so fun to play in real life. The scenery is beautiful. Can't get over how ridic Kirito looks though, and the I'm guessing the blonde chick is probably Suguha from what the OP suggests. I liked the OST during the fight with those generic baddies but Kirito's "Who's next?" was so lame.

I wonder if Kirito will learn to use magic too. Sword art online really is getting better. At one point I wanted to drop it and now I can't wait for the next episode

Only skills, items (broken, only Yui saved) and
transferred. HP is in different format (so he has basic), levels, strengh and agility are not present in ALO.

So he is really strong, but still needs good equipment to fight with the stronghest.

Kirito is such a beast <3333 uwaa~ it was just too cool >.< !!

Grr, I find the whole new game thing a bit stupid, but SAO's still too good, can't help it.xD Love you Kirito! Find ze Asuna soon :)

And seeing that log out button was such a relief xD
Oh, and lol, couldn't help but be scared when that one boy died.. forgot that it's not SAO hahaha

True it they end it in Anicard it would be best, they wouldn't need to cut it so much and rush.
Yet I'm happy that I can see ALF as well, and also would want the rest at least with GGO.

Also it's easy to see that in opposite to LN we wont see Lyfa point of view, unless they change it in next episode.
Anyway I loved end of episode. After all Kirito is the main reason that I readed all 10 translated volumes

The aerial fight felt a bit slow, and could have been better done but it should speed up a bit later. As for people saying Kirito is a cheater, well while he obviously is cheating people should also look at it another way, would it be reasonable for him to use a new account to do what he gotta do in his limited time frame? i mean think about it how long have people been playing ALO before him, its not like he is unbeatable either. Well in any case the pacing is being done well so thats something to be optimistic for.

Good introduction to the game just like the first arc, hopefully the pacing of the story is better in this mmo. The one thing I didn't like in this episode was Yui's reintroduction, was about to puke over how cheesy it was.

I enjoyed the episode more than the previous one. The story arcs starts to get exciting when Kirito enters Alfhiem Online. As much as I miss Sword Art Online, I found Alfheim Online pretty interesting. It's nice to have Yui back. It was cute when Kirito reunited with Yui (suck it Cardinal!) Now Kirito has six days to save Asuna and stop Sugho (or I could say Jafar's white descendant or the Japanese form of Cal Hockley) from marrying and then harassing her. I was kinda disappointed that Asuna will be the damsel in distress since I like her as a strong heroine in the previous arc, and I have a feeling that she will be for most of the story arc and I can get used to Kirito's hair which I didn't like. I guess Asuna might appear in the next episode but when will Kirito see her again?
