This arc is the worst part of Sword Art Online. But it has it's good parts. Asuna may indeed be traped but that doesn't makes her a damsel in distress since she helped Kirito rescuing her. Kirito's undying love for Asuna is something amazing and worth pointing out. And Suguha/Leafa was a good and charismatic character overall that had a nice emotional development throughout the story. And lastly but not least after making Asuna go through her
must humiliating moment in her whole life it was amazing to see Sugou/Oberon's butt being kicked to the moon and back in both virtual and real world thanks to Kirito. But that doesn't changes the fact that the Fairy Dance, or as I would like to call it, the Fairy Cancer arc doesn't exists, and that's a FACT.
