They're not. Only some channels will be airing Episode 6 today (some already have, I think). No simulcast today. =/

Ya, I noticed that SAO usually airs at 1pm EST on CR, but today it is 4pm EST..

Is the 1pm showing the simulcast? What influences it so much on a weekly basis I wonder.

M.A.D 2012-08-11 11:02

It's because of the Olympics, isn't it? But we only need one channel to broadcast it, don't we?

relentlessflame 2012-08-11 11:04

It seems that MBS had to cut the episode this week, and will instead be doing a double-broadcast two weeks from now (on the 25th) to catch up. So if Crunchyroll was forced to not air the episode before MBS did (which could explain why they don't simulcast till 5:00am JST), that means we can likely expect a similar pattern, hopefully including the double-airing in two weeks.

(Most other channels airing the anime did air it this week on schedule, though. The TBS/MBS/RKB network is the one doing games coverage in Japan, though, so that's why many their shows are affected in some way.)

Actually, I think it was moved to 4pm EDT a few weeks ago. It was 1pm at first. If my speculation above is right (which seems to fit), the reason would be contractual rights for Japanese broadcast on MBS (a clause that says that station must air it before it's allowed to be broadcast anywhere else in the world).

have watched it

Spoiler for anime:


next episode will be the last side story (for now) which is lizbet and the out of dark repulser

Rayrah 2012-08-11 12:05

Dynamic tag cannot be rendered. (PrintableThread)

Deltaray 2012-08-11 12:09

Dam they nailed Johnny Black's voice, PoH was pretty good too, sadly XaXa didn't get any lines =(


But yeah, finally we got away from this most boring side story for me, cuts from novels were pretty smart because otherwise it might spoil too much, pretty good.

Clarste 2012-08-11 13:03

I always imagined PoH being more charismatic than that, but it works.

Netto Azure 2012-08-11 13:20

Darn, will have to look somewhere other than CR then. Reading here it seems everything went well. :3

Yusei Fudo 2012-08-11 13:23

Interesting Episode :D

Noticed the Ending Artwork was done by Buriki lolz

Shaggeh 2012-08-11 13:27

I really think it was well done, and the parts left out wasn't too major or would of been too many spoilers this early. One more side left until the main story starts looking forward to it.

Who's the amazing artist for the Asuna portrait in the end?

Buriki, as Yusei Fudo said a few posts above :heh:

Utsuro no Hako 2012-08-11 13:54

I was wondering how Kirito was going to figure everything out without the Kains/Kaynze clue. I think the solution the anime came up with worked well, especially since it allowed them to keep the sandwich scene.

M.A.D 2012-08-11 14:09

Personally, I think the scene with Laughing Coffin was played out a too fast. I just sort of blinked, and then they left already. How could they keep the part where Kirito patted a horse's backside but couldn't come up with better pacing for people that matter?

Also, could anyone tell me the next episode's name?

Next episode title is "Warmth of the Heart".

ZGMF-X10A 2012-08-11 14:19

wasn't all that good episode imo. Although it did wrap up why those two were killed the previous episode.

"Kokoro no Ondo" (心の温度)
"Warmth of Heart"

Its another side story from Volume 2, and I'm really wondering how they are going to do it without spoilers to the main plot.


And Edit: oops got my side story titles mixed up and someone also beat me to it.
