Nah, the rage on this one would come from anime only viewers -- the story's very simple and straightforward so it should be easy to adapt, but it's very fillerish (and people were already complaining about last week's episode being filler).

This week's End Card:

And so the Loli appears. I like this episode for the fan service heh.

But otherwise better paced I think. Has most of the SS lol "Kirito onii-chan"

Jeez such a sis-con lawlz.

Miraluka 2012-07-28 11:03

Kirito is a walking hax regarding games and girls :heh:.

Sooooo yeah, there was loliservice this episode and that poor thing of a dragon :heh:.

Well I *can* agree that this week is sorta lax paced and not-so-important which would lead people to think it's filler-ish.
But but but... how was last week's ep being filler-ish? :uhoh:

People's ability to find stuff to rage about is over 9000!

Not too fond of the end card this time.

People, or well, fans, don't need a reason to rage about stuff. P:

Great episode, they only skipped few very minor lines from novels. Fight scenes, with monsters and with Titan's hand were very good, especially when it was Silica doing it to those mobs.

Overall, it was just what I expected, great all around, and that dash at the end was nice touch, did not expect that, for me this episode is at same lvl than first one, voted 10.

Utsuro no Hako 2012-07-28 13:12

Bit surprised by how harsh Silica's voice was at the beginning -- I expected something sweeter, but it worked.

Pleasant breather episode, but I'm not into loli fanservice. I'd much rather get half-naked Asuna.

larethian 2012-07-28 13:28

It's nice that I've forgotten most of the details in the LN so it's a pretty cool episode to watch. :heh:

Leon_Lelouch 2012-07-28 13:41

Nice episode after having someone died in the previous episode even though actually around two months had passed after the previous one...
Spoiler for :

two episodes without Asuna...:(

Hmm.... 2012-07-28 13:42

Yes, they can't possibly screw up "Black Swordman" which is considered easy (if not easiest) to adapt and they didn't. The past two episodes are just an atempt to make impossible possible which they fail :D. But bad is bad and good is good, no complain about this episode .

I will save my rage for next Episode "Murder case in the Area" ;).

ZGMF-X10A 2012-07-28 13:48

that loli is so cute. Too bad her pet dragon died protecting her. I'm guessing the item Kirito helped her get was to revive the dragon.

Klashikari 2012-07-28 14:10

The episode felt a little condensed, but unlike last week, the transitions and "tricks" used to bring the matter were handled in a much better fashion (or the original content was easier, whichever goes).
This episode establish yet another recurrent issue with online games, PK, which is even worse when you consider the nature of SOA. So having a full episode about that, with few more development for Kirito, and Silica, help a lot in the long run.

Of course, the way how AIC is handling things is a bit too linear, and it becomes obvious why the original writer made these as side stories to begin with, but at least it sure build the MMO environnment for the audience, even if the flow is a bit too segmented as result.

FlameSparkZ 2012-07-28 14:23

Great episode, nicely adapted when compared to the previous ones :uhoh:

This ep made me like Silica even more. Her sword skills were awesome. :D
Kirito did pretty good too, just standing there and showing the harsh reality of MMOs :heh::heh::heh:

And did anyone notice a certain pair during the ep? It seems they ended up as buddies :heh:

Spoiler for Next Episode:
