To be honest, not really! :D

NoemiChan 2012-11-24 01:55

I wish to see more Asuna this time... *crying

Dr. Casey 2012-11-24 02:00

Don't worry, Genji. Asuna escaped from captivity last episode, so I suspect she'll begin playing a more prominent role this time around.

I'm so unhappy! I just had to come here to rant about this. I'm tortured by the fact that I think this series has taken such a wrong turn. The world of SAO is gone and now we have to deal with Alfheim. What happened? I just don't know what to say...

Blame it all to the antagonist.

IMHO, the anime had followed the LV impressively except for some rush and skips. I think it did well.

Insane 2012-11-24 03:06

I'm just wondering. If Asuna were to die in ALO, would her "real" body die as well (considering that her real body is still sleeping with that microwave helmet on)?

Chaos2Frozen 2012-11-24 03:18

Who knows? Maybe the 'kill switch' is only trigger through SAO.

Spoiler for About the Helmet of Asuna:

Haru-kun 2012-11-24 04:05

I'm pratically keeping my eyes glued on the clock... This episode = more Asuna, and I won't deny the fact that I am really looking forward to the slugs :)

Damn, I really wished that I have the links so that can watch SAO stream live online

SEXY ASUNA *nose bleeds*

miroku2192 2012-11-24 11:51

Woohoo just one more hourrrr. Can't wait to see what happens, hopefully Asuna kicks some BUTT.

I just hope Asuna doesn't get mind wiped/controlled into hating/not recognizing Kirito. and then the power of <3 breaks through the mind spell (hurrr durrrrppp)

ZGMF-X10A 2012-11-24 13:04

lol Asuna and tentacles

Kamui04 2012-11-24 13:05

I can picture certain kind of fanart after this episode XD.

Klashikari 2012-11-24 13:21

I already considered the "in-game admin console" being too convenient in SAO arc, but even having an admin card "in-game" makes even less sense: so instead of having account/character binded admin rights, they are required to have a virtual item to have such privileges... That makes Asuna's opportunity to have such thing in a very contrived way. Suffice to say, if Asuna wasn't shown using the card right away, that probably means she needs a console, which isn't present in her cage... but wait, since the cage is "PHYSICAL" (instead of being code based restriction upon her character), what would stop Yui to get there and get the card then?

Really, the VR system wasn't too bad at first, but assuming it was in the LN already, it has so many IRL features, even moreso in ALO that it makes little sense in term of program usage, no matter how "real" the initial designer, Kayaba, wanted it to be.
So having Asuna roaming around is already breaking the suspension of disbelief, especially being able to enter in such critical room without any security door (making no sense compared to the console), but the whole system has so much flaws it adds more "stupidity" to what Sugou was planning.

Anyway, this episode was a tad slow, trying to expose what we already know, but in a snail pace. I can't say the staff won points with how "gratuitious" they had to show the tentacle "rape" there, which is quite nonsensical to have researchers using such avatars, but hey, anything can go if it is for fetish!
At least, the episode sets the following one into real business, although since Leefa/Suguha part has yet to be concluded, I wouldn't be surprised if we get a giant drama next week.
