Dunno if anyone else has shared this already, but apparently Ryukushi has been answering questions "in-character" on Twitter. Nothing ground breaking, but mildly amusing nonetheless. ...

If I had to rate things objectively, the show is rather flawed, I would give it a 7 or 8.

But for my personal subjective opinion of how much I enjoyed the show, it'd be a 9 or 9.5. There was...

Kirito is a nice person who likes to help other people when they're in trouble.
Kirito is not a ruthless pragmatist who will use others and sacrifice them for his own personal gain.

Because by betraying someone in game, for vague and flimsy reasons, throwing away everything they did to selflessly help you will hurt that person in real life. You may think Leafa's feelings don't...

Even if the setting is that of a game, the people who play it are still real people. If Kirito had gone through with Leafa's suggestion, she would have been hurt, even if it was her own idea.

I dunno if you've seen the rest of the series yet, but Kirito's carefree attitude comes back to bit him in the ass later.

Well to be fair, from Suguha's perspective, Kirito basically did walk straight out of a romance novel.

Things all worked out in the end, yes. Kirito was able to...

I don't think it ever details specifically how grenades work in GGO, but I would imagine it's similar to shooter games like CoD or something. Namely there's a special "equipment" slot, which can be...

For the most part, Kirito can't win a lot of fights that way, or at least doesn't. First half of the SAO arc, he vastly overlevels pretty much everything he fights. He beats Gleam Eyes with his dual...
