Sword Art Online II Episode 4- First 5 minutes, does 2 “impossible” things

The game finally begins, and Kirito already accomplishes two things deemed “impossible”. How far will the perfect human being go this series?

At least we’re going at a slow, developed pace with some explanations going around. Hell, I hear we won’t see too much of Asuna either so that’s always a great thing. So while you may consider the slow pace to be boring, it’s sort of nice getting some actual explanations. Even so, I hear GGO isn’t all that great but oh well, as long as Asuna doesn’t show up, I’ll be keeping up since I like Miyuki Sawashiro.

Sword Art Online II Episode 3- Development and depth? In SAO?

Sword Art Online II Episode 3- Development and depth? In SAO?

So my question from last episode is answered and I will honestly say that I expected this sort of problem that Sinon, or rather, Asada Shino is facing.

So just because of actual backstory and having a motivation that goes beyond just playing a game instantly makes her a more likable character then nearly everyone in the cast already. What wonders backstories and actual motivation do to a character eh? However, that’s not saying much since Sinon will inevitably fall for Kirito instead of the nice, considerate guy who showed up this episode.

EDIT: Litchi player taking EVO 2014 in Blazblue is probably the reason why the Litchi pic is getting so many views today. Thanks EVO!

Know that I judge SAO harshly because people still see it as the best thing ever.

I decided to take Light’s words to heart and continue on this bad road trip called Sword Art Online. A few months ago, he mentioned that the series generally gets a bit more tolerable from the GGO arc while it actually becomes decent in the later developments. Now around 2 weeks ago, he said he read through GGO and said that in hindsight, it was pretty bad as well.

To kill any expectations from this series even further, half of this episode was just Kirito and Asuna just talking. Nothing happens but to set up plot and I’d rather see Kirito interact with the dude from the extremely long intelligence agency name that can be just called, Virtual investigator. My hate aside, let’s hop into the allegedly improving arc known as GGO

Sword Art Online S1 Mini-Review

Standard

It’s more love than the art of the sword.

(Pictures will be added later on)

A year ago, I was looking for some manga I could read so I checked up on MAL some high scored series. This series called Sword Art Online was ranked #6 so I was pretty impressed to read that this series was based on MMO’s. You could imagine how excited I was to hear about the series getting an anime and when it did come out, the first two episodes were enjoyable to watch. Then, it went downhill from there.

Rage Below, if you love this series then I wouldn’t recommend reading this.

Honestly, this is the phase in these 12-13 episode anime to try and rush out a dramatic end. Ironically, I’m just talking about Nakaimo because I’m actually looking foward to Binbougami Ga’s finale, SAO prolly will go for another 12 episodes, and Nobuna delivered an acceptable ending. So yeah…

Nakaimo and Binbougami ga will recieve a seperate series review this week while I decide to keep SAO in my weekly roundups for next season.

It would be disrespectful if I dropped Sword Art Online so I might as well persevere until the week is over. I’ll spare details because honestly, the series are almost over, and half the crap I’m watching is actual crap.

of course the review quality is going down, the seasons almost over (don’t ask me how that makes any sense)!
