Amazing episode. I finally got to see Asuna after 3 episodes, it's been a long time. However, she is obviously not at all in a good state. Her last phrase before the end of the episode was very emotional, but we know Kirito is trying as she spoke (although he only has a week?). I would have been very surprised that Leafa is Suguha, but I had a good guess a few days beforehand when I saw a picture of Suguha next to Leafa and made the connection (I'm very dim in that sense).
So, I cannot wait to see what's next, and how difficult the tree will be to overcome. Asuna needs to keep her hopes up meanwhile.
5/5 (all the time).

Well, This is SAO, currently a 90% "Carbon copy" of it. You'll soon understand as why this anime is called SAO

But seems like the anime's plot also changed, not only the game. Don't matter how it's called, I'm watching "new" anime.
I'm looκing for someone interesting to talk with, are you good enough?

Oh shit. Brainwashing. I can just imagine Kirito meeting a brainwashed Asuna.

Hey asuna are you there

I am titania

That would be awful. Or if the evil dude just brainwashed everybody. Good thing anime doesn't have such sane villains. he doesn't want to turn her into a "puppet". Lucky her.

By some unfathomable reason, no, she doesn't. That's why she's so intrigued by "Kirito".

(At least, I'm pretty sure she doesn't.)

As a side note, pretty art is pretty. Props to A-1.

I think she suspects it's him and is using their arranged time to check? IIRC the episode before they had a whole long talk about him getting her so.. maybe that's what's happening? He did mention he came looking for someone in ALO.

But perhaps you can elaborate a bit of what you think should have been adapted but not in the anime?
So MAL finally starts locking news threads that are only a few weeks old?

I wonder where was the announcement of this change? Or we are seeing yet another case of changes made that impacted users but not communicated to them?

I wonder how long people would put up with this.

As much as I have a bunch of information to share about anime announced recently I cannot share it in news board, and the anime series is too disorganized and chaotic to share information except with people already interested in the particular series.

The bird cage scene was alright, one of the only scenes that I found to be on the same level as in the novel. Well, the blurring of the lock and the lock itself could have been better. Oh wells, I had already given up hope since episode 2.

EDIT: Only realized now that volume 10 is fully translated. Yay.

Another awesome episode of SAO. Loved those flight scenes, can't wait to see more of those in the later episodes. The scene with Kirito interrupting Lyfa with an outburst of rage was great. Suguha has a Lyfa poster on the ceiling of her room as well? Talk about being a hardcore fan lmao. Oh man I just love how shy she gets and overreacts. :D

Yui is so damn cute, sleeping together with Kirito. Also like how she hides in Kirito's breast pocket while they're flying. Lastly, the Douchebag King Sugou appears and harasses/teases Asuna. Totally thought he was gonna rape her right there. Man, Sugou could just alter Asuna's memories and make her fall in love with him. Pretty crazy shit.

It seems like they are leaving out quite a bit of the content from the light novels but I still like the Anime adaptation. And it is kind of hard to animate scenes with just the character's thoughts, which happen a lot in the light novel. Overall loved this episode. Can't get enough of Lyfa/Suguha! >=D

Oh man, this anime just has no mercy on Asuna. First she gets trapped in a game for 2+ years with no way out other than beating Heathcliff and even then, she gets stuck in another game because some douche who works for her father has an "evil" complex and traps her mind in another game so she can be his plaything.

Seriously, Asuna...don't EVER buy a lottery ticket...you have the worst luck EVER!!!

In episode 15, I shrugged Sugou off. But in this episode, he pissed me off so much.
I still wonder if Asuna will still be together with Kirito. Part of me screams yes, but at the back of my mind, it whispers no. I keep telling myself to read the light novel but I never had the proper motivation to start it...

I can't wait for this to progress since I want to see Kirito save Asuna already.
With what Sugou said about changing one's memories he could basically fuck up Asuna to prevent Kirito from having her if he wins ALO. I doubt that'll happen though since the bastard wants Asuna as she is and they probably won't mess around with the MCs too much.
They'll go to the big tree thing in the next episode, I hope they'll clear it fast.
I almost never read discussions after I made my post, if you want to reply PM me or post on my profile page.

fuck.... Sugou made my skin crawl and I knew it was coming. Damn I don't know how i will be able to see the end dealing with watching him (I read LN already). But even if I wasn't looking forward to Sugou, on the brighter side I'm happy to see the animated Lyfa(kirito cousins avatar). Thought she was attractive on the illustrations and the anime certainly didn't let me down. And to all those people who think KiritoxSuguha is bad, bceause of incest. THEY ARE COUSINS, so it ain't incest. ITs just how ppl in the South live their lives.
Anyways, I'm still Kirito x Asuna, with hope that Yui somehow is brought to life in real world. Keep it up SAO!

They adapted ALO arc pretty well imo. What else would you want them to do? I like how they show Asuna not being able to see clearly the password for the lock hinting for possible solutions for escape.

Nope. She don't.

-------------

Is it just me or they keep focusing on Lyfa's breast? Well, Lyfa is hot, can't blame them. ALO arc is not disappointing me yet. Better than SAO arc. Good episode! A lot of Lyfa moments. I JUST WISH THAT THEY STOP IGNORING OTHER SERIES ( SHINSEKAI YORI ) AND SPLIT THE ATTENTION TOGETHER!!

BTW. SUGOU. LOL. MY DAY IS FUCKING RUIIIIIIIINED.

If you payed any attention at all you would know that Kirito in ALO doesn't look like Kazuto at all.
In SAO he had his facial feature because Kayaba made it that way while in ALO he got a personalised avatar and doesn't look like Kazuto. From the viewer perspective they might look the same but they are fundamentaly different.



So in ALO, Asuna looks like the real Asuna, but Kirito doesn't look like Kazuto. How is that possible?

Because of Sugou.Wouldnt it be weird if he was molesting a different looking woman?

So it's Sugou who made Asuna keep her appearance, without Sugou, she would also have a personalised avatar. OK, it wasn't clear in my mind, because in the anime, Kirito looks a lot like Kazuto, and since they could easily recognized Asuna, I thought it would be the same for Kirito.

About Kirito.Add to that "personalized avatar" also the fact that Kirito/Kazuto has a very generic face,so much that many in the threads compared him with at least 3 chars in other anime(one from this season) which makes the ones he encounters not to be suspicious of his (generic) personalized avatar

Also later in the story

Lol, you know, that's what I used to come to this conclusion. Kirito kept a lot of his SAO skills, and he also have the same face. So I believed that he kept his skills and his facial feature too. The fact that Asuna looks like her real self strengthen my opinion.

Also, there was no hate in my question, I already have an opinion on SAO, and it's not those kind of small details that will change it. I was just asking for clarification.

Also later in the story


You can see Kirito's appearance in SAO at the start of ALO, it merged with ALO random generated appearance(and each appearance is unique) . Because ALO is an expansion of SAO. ( Means some of the code in SAO have been transferred and copied into ALO, such as their appearance, stats, etc).

Everyone who was in SAO also has their appearance merged with the appearance in ALO (Egil, Klein, Lizbeth, Silica). So they can keep their original form in real life, but there are some changes as they choose races. Meanwhile other players like Suguha, Simon have their appearance randomly generated and it looks different compare to their real life appearance.

Kirito made a new character with randomized appearance. Asuna got hijacked by Sugou and he wanted to keep her apperance.

Some decent progression made this episode, so far ALO has been to my liking, the depictions of the locations have been nice and not so cliiche as hell.

Also I think normally I'd be harbouring some crazy Sugou hate, but later after

I can't quite get myself to ignite my inner rage anymore.

Meh episode. I'm not getting impressed by this arc compared to SAO at all.
While SAO villain was believable and interesting, the main villain here is just that, villain with 0 charisma and 0 fun, he's just evil, nothing to it, classic cliché villain.

Why do you do this? "Well, I'm evil."
That would be the whole explanation for that guy. I expected way more from show which actually had really good bad guy who had his motivations, goals, strange ways etc so far.
I feel like they replaced Heath Ledger (Joker) with Uma Thurman (Poison Ivy). Hell, even she had more motivation than this guy.

It's not really a randomized appearance. It's just that his original appearance was merged with Spriggan features.

WTH!!!! I didn't saw that coming. Lyfa/Leafa is Suguha! However she was unaware that Kirito was her cousin. She's really in love with him... even in the game she's attached to him. I believe that he's gonna help her to get the waiter, the boy from her class.

Hey, I know a lot of you would say that there's nothing worst than death, however, this game's worst than SAO. It's a human experiment. Controls emotions, thoughts and memory... WTF!

Kirito you jumped out of the frying pan and into the fire.

I love the touch that they used on the security machine in the cage... they programmed it so that when Asuna looks at it to see the code being entered, all she's seeing is a badly pixelated machine.
