Sugu is that blond elf girl... that was easy to figure out.


..if you read the LN

how would you know that if you just watched the anime


typical anime plot, you wouldn't randomly add a non-related character to the anime without a good reason. Also, the opening song tells you, it shows the blond elf girl dragging kirito and the very next scene, it shows sugu dragging kirito. coincidence? I think not.

Because most anime fans totally pay attention to the OP


I do. That's why I cried so hard come episode 17 of Clannad AS.

Then for one thing she's retarded for wearing shorts in the middle of December. Mittens exist.


i also have no idea why she's wearing shorts in middle of winter, you could become very ill because of that, i can sort of understand if it was to exercise or work on her kendo but she has her hakama for that... the anime seems to have....clumsified her unfortunately

though you could also argue that she is in her house and was merely stepping out for a bit of fresh air, i do that a lot on my balcony to be honest

but you could also say that it was just the writers getting a bit horny and giving a bit of male fanservice by showing her like that

There is no way to compare an OP of 17 eps with an OP of 2 eps only.

As a child, I was told that society is a melting pot of talents; knowledge and experience combined to form important alloys that will contribute to mankind. When I got to highschool, however, I thought that it's more like a river in which the water represents our peers while we ourselves are the stones in the river. Constant erosion by mindless majority sheeping has made us lose our unique edge. After I hit the age of 18, I realized that I've been wrong all along. Society is no melting pot. Society is no river. Society is a person, a very skilled rapist, and he has fucked us all.

new game, new arc, that's not a good reason to add a character? they already did that with that one guy nobody likes

but the opening sequence thing is a valid point. i didn't notice that but then again i don't pay very close attention to the opening/ending sequence


Yumeria was the same thing, just remembered that anime. I thought something was familiar with this.

I only pay attention to the OP and ED of anime that I like. Don't know about other people.

Being important/having char development doesnt mean that someone is a great VMMO player/helps Kirito.For example the female lead in GGO arc of SAO.Her RL persona is what makes her the best char in the series not her skills and adventures with Kirito.And no she doesnt fall in love with him...

What I want to say in a roundabout way is

Not bad not bad. I actually enjoy it without Asuna in this show. LOL
Wow, Kirito still has his skills from SAO. Everyone better watch out for this "newbie" :D

Yui's back too. Her transformation scene reminded me of those magical girl shows LOL

Yeah but it wasnt something facepalm worthy from me, in every second of the ep.In this ep I just couldnt help but laugh....

As for GGO's spoilers....What ,from what I said, was a spoiler that immediately affected the enjoyment of reading/seeing it?
If you are talking about
dont you think it's a little bit late?

HECK YEAH. I've been waiting for this episode since episode 15 came out.
I'm surprised that Kirito's SAO stats got carried over to ALO. It's still cool, though. He's pretty much an overpowered newbie.
I love how I get a whole different feeling of ALO, like how it doesn't feel the same as SAO. And the functions such as flight - I got excited when they mentioned it in the episode.
I was overjoyed when I saw Yui. The reuniting scene was slightly touching for me. Looks like it's time for me to read the LN.

Frick that was awesome. Kirito's so OP, Im loving it XD

If you really want to fit in, just put Legend of the Galactic Heroes in your top 5 and have it be the only 10-rated anime in your list.

So the game is made from SAO database? The game is just an enhanced rip off.
From the way things look like, Asuna is like a princess/queen in distress.

I guess the new goal now is to rescue her in order to complete the game.
Since the supposed "marriage" happens in Jan 26, and the current timeline is Jan 20...
There will be no massive timeskip. I think this will be better so we dont need to assume what happens offscreen just like the SAO arc with friendships develop in a snap.

I would say the plot got weak now, since there is no more threat in their lives. There is no fear anymore, but it is just about the very quick romance between Asuna and Kirito.

Having his skills set and a "cheater" is better since we don't need to see long ass training except for flying. I hope the premise would feature battle actions that won't be abrupt like the fight scenes they did in SAO.

This doesn't seem like it's gonna be nearly as good as the Aincrad arc.
The main reason I loved Aincrad was because their lives were in danger, now it's basically just an anime about a game without the slight psychological aspects(probably will be replaced with drama in this arc) that got me into this series. :/

Good episode,just can say

they are adapting so far pretty well ALF...to bad they didnt do that with SAO but o well.

Kirito move from a cheater to a beater XD Really he is badass anyway,like his new look.

Glad to see Yui back that transformation and massive fingering was lol...and wrong in some way -.-

Suguha chocking at the beginning was cute specially that embarrassed face at the start


Lyfa new chick,i like her mmm i wonder who she is?? "sarcasm"

Well Kirito save her with some nice moves and next episode fun things will happen,hope they keep adapting it this good until the end.

BTW Lyfa got some nice moves!

Well if you learn to hate a show you wont like it even if it does improve....

Well anyway...Only Kirito, Asuna and the 300 players Sugou has trapped are in deep shit here.All the rest are normal players that CARE A LOT about their items,gold,exp etc...

It's a lot slower paced this time. It's a good way to end the episode I guess. But I wonder where they're going to stop next episode?

Anyways, I like the visuals. Looks better than SAO in some ways.

Good ep :D

Looks like they slowed down the pacing now. I'm not yet used to it since they rushed Aincrad arc~

The only prob with this ep is... why didn't they emphasize flying? They were like just floating... should have added more vibrations to those wings and faster movement.

spoiled myself i guess...
and why am i not surprised with kirito choosing a chara wearing black :)
if there's a game that i could experience flying, i would def play it

and why are people still playing games, i mean after the SAO incident, wouldnt they be a bit traumatized or something... one things for sure, stricter inspection were probably established before a game is released

You have good tastes.

“Girls can wear jeans and cut their hair short and wear shirts and boots because it’s okay to be a boy; for girls it’s like promotion. But for a boy to look like a girl is degrading, according to you, because secretly you believe that being a girl is degrading.”—Ian McEwan, The Cement Garden (1978)

WOW. If you played any MMO (besides WoW), this is a very FUNNY and basically REAL situation. The new company did almost nothing to SAO except re-name, and re-skin the game, maybe reformatted skills (as "magic"). Talk about LAZY developers! I mean even the player data was still in it. I seriously laughed so hard about this.

Why do people do drugs when they know how dangerous they are?Think of it like this.

It's actually mentioned how the SAO incident became a huge controversy last episode. ARGUS became bankrupt due to lawsuits and such.

But apparently this next generation Full-Dive Amusphere is marketed as being safer than the "Devil Machine" Nerve Gear.

Besides considering people WANTING to full dive in SAO (based on Internet Comments) I wouldn't be surprised that even after an incident like SAO, VRMMO technology would still sell like iPhones.

Kirito choosing a black swordman is the same reason why gamers choose what they are comfortable with first when playing a new game(for me it's usually rogues or warriors)

and as they had mentioned in this episode, there are new helmets called amuspheres which is meant to be safer then the nerv gears....in regards to being traumatized, I'm pretty sure some ppl are but that doesn't stop them from trying it anyways. That's like asking "why do ppl hate<insert hype series of the season>, yet keep watching every episode?"
