I'm pretty sure there's still an episode left.

Next ep is the last one

I'm curious as to how Kirito will deal that bastard sugou in this ep. No matter how badass he is, there's no almost possible way he can defeat the admin.

Sinon 2012-12-15 12:20

Anyone watched raw yet?

Almost done. Sugou is as disgusting as ever.

Freeter 2012-12-15 13:03

Sugou went full DIOOOOOO this ep. I kept expecting him to yell out "JOJO!" during his crazy banter :heh:

But of course, to no one's surprise Kirito gets uber-hax powerup and defeats Sugou. Gotta admit though, I didn't expect him to turn Sugou into a shishkabob. That was pretty cool.

Wonder what Sugu was up to prior to Kirito waking up. Maybe she was practicing for Horse Art Online :heh:

Wait, how it is end?

Endless Knackwurst 2012-12-15 14:33

Sugou's a slimy piece of worm-ridden filth, but they turned up his moustache-twirling villainousness so much over eleven that it basically wrecked all of those scenes for me. Yes, you can undercut the squickiness of "Watch me molest your girlfriend" with too much maniacal cackling and crazy eyes..

I also kept telling Kirito after he'd disposed of Sugou and freed Asuna that "Don't stop now! Real world is waiting! Sugou's gonna be pissed off!"

Though of course it was necessary for storytelling purposes to have him wrap up those bits of online business first.

shalala 2012-12-15 14:41

This ep has to be the most funniest and cringe worthy ep out of the whole show. Sugou was all his werid faces and his screaming was just funny. So does this mean that Akihiko Kayaba is really dead. Also I wonder how sugou looks like after all that damage done to his body?

relentlessflame 2012-12-15 14:48

I was a bit surprised by the way this episode ended myself -- you might otherwise have taken it as the ending (destroys Oberon, saves/logs-out Asuna, says farewell to Yui for now, says thanks to Suguha, etc.) except for the fact that he didn't actually arrive at the hospital and there was a next episode title. So... now what? There is obviously a lot of loose ends to tie up, and based on the title it has something to do with The Seed... but I guess I'm a bit surprised they didn't use some sort of cliffhanger to bridge to the final episode.

Otherwise... I sort of agree with Endless Knackwurst's assessment that they turned up Sugou's "crazy evil villain" dial a bit too high even considering what they did so far. He was pretty much a full-on parody at this point (as if he wasn't already). Kirito's realization that he was powerless was solved by tying in to the same element that caused so much controversy in the last arc (though it shows that being able to bypass the limits/constraints of the system is a recurring theme of the story and not only a one-time excuse), with a little help of Kayaba. It should be noted that they even had Kirito say outright that Kayaba being there even though he's apparently dead doesn't make much sense, which is basically "Lampshade Hanging". Something implausible happened, but it basically had to happen to balance the universe (since someone corrupt had too much power).

Anyway... we'll see what happens next week. Apparently he's biking to the hospital because he can't afford a cab even in these circumstances? :heh:

I'm supposing he was probably licking her, as he is apparently wont to do... but it isn't shown, so who knows. I think he certainly wanted to give Kirito the worst impression possible.
