What do you mean? Major plot twist? Asuna dies? Breakup?

This is where Alicization gets crazy. If they keep the same ending as the light novel, I can't wait to see people's reactions lol.

Aaaa dammit. A 6 month pause. And we finally got to the LN I didn’t read.

Well, at least the 2 cours so far have been more than enjoyable. The ending was a bit rushed, and a lot of details that were in the LN were skipped (like Charlotte looking after Kirito and Eugeo), but otherwise, Alicization so far redeemed SAO.

We got to see character development for Kirito, an equal protagonist in the form of Eugeo, and a more developed world (compared to Aincrad) in the form of the Underworld.

A solid 8.5/10 from me.

Another 24 episodes? Damn, they're going all out with SAO now, nice.

SAO: A has left me massively disappointed. Every week I trudged through a new episode struggling to care about any of the new characters. Alice and Eugeo were flat and boring. I really wanted to see more of what was going on with Asuna, but we were trapped in the pitiful world known as Underworld.

Seriously? 10 episodes of them climbing a tower? Then it ends on that massive cliffhanger. Pretty much my least favorite arc of SAO thus far. And I thought Alfheim was bad.


its rare to see someone that i heavily agree with
the tower was just absolutely horribly boring, and the characters are weak
i also think that there was way too much overdramatization and emotional bullshit that just dragged on for the whole goddamn episode

its also my least favourite arc so far
but oh well lets see how the 2nd part plays out

Mar 31, 6:28 AM by multigamerclubxd

i really hope the 6 month wait is worth to make the 2nd part have proper animation and action

Mar 31, 3:34 AM by zalapeno

I'm ecstatic to see what's to come!

Mar 31, 2:05 AM by xchyssa

Wasn't this announced ages ago? Or was it just so obvious that it was split that we all took it for granted anyway
The rumors were lingering but there was never an official announcement of split-cour. But we kinda assumed A1 didn't have the stamina, nor do most studios, to have a full 4 cour show. Glad to get confirmation now. I can pick up the blu-rays and avoid the horrible TV version lol.

Hooooooo yiiiiiissss life is good, life is worth living. Arigatou Kami-sama, amem!

Mar 30, 3:23 PM by Nick-Knight

It was already given that they were going to split the arc into 2 different parts

Nowadays, hardly any studio make long running anime's(should have more than 26 episodes )
