I have dust in my eyes. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

Regarding the RDR adaption, I've already said my piece in terms of my concerns of it.

However, for what its worth, I'm going to shut away all preconception I've had as a novel reader ( one skill that I'm really thankful to have ), and just watch it as if I'm an anime-only viewer. Let's see how it gets me.

Come at me, A-1.

Nothing would change even if Asuna knew the whole affair. She pretty much knows 80% of the whole thing, and even if she found out some of the... deeper details, it's in the past. Sachi may had been a real contender, but the story of Sachi & Kirito wasn't there to spice up a love drama.

Once again, I'm thinking that a real love-triangle would probably never even happen, if it actually came to a situation that Sachi lived, unless Asuna started at a similar time with Sachi.

If Sachi never died, I won't be surprised if Kirito eventually started to see Sachi as a more than just a replacement-imouto. Probably will take some time, but Sachi was clearly someone important to him. If Sachi died & revived... well, I said my case. He'd probably force himself to love her just because she does.

In these cases, I don't see Kirito being swayed by any other girl, even if it's Asuna.

Now, that's rich fanfic fuel. Asuna must rue the day she left Kirito after Monochrome, once they meet up again.

Though it would have been a rather dependent relationship (in contrast to how equal KiritoX Asuna is) and one that lacked the same level of chemistry that Asuna had with Kirito.

Darn the next episode is going to be fast and straight to the heartstrings. So much emotions rushed...will be like a sugar rush to me...20 minutes will feel like 5 just like in episode 2. ;___;

Anime-only watchers are wondering about whether Kirito wanted to Solo or not. The next episode should explain everything. :<

I'm fuzzy on the months all of a sudden. Does RNR make sense chronologically coming after Aria? Were there any other important events or side stories aside from FD that would be skipped?

And would anyone actually like a triangle? I personally detest them.

After seeing the new PV, I'm kinda surprised there's a suggestive 'bed' scene >.> I'm pretty sure that's not in the LNs...

I'd normally rant against changes from the LN, but in this case I'm willing to let it slide - the horror on Kirito's end will be that much more hurtful after a development like that
Yes I know I'm being mean about this =P

Actually that scene was also (extremely briefly, like one panel) shown in the manga too. And while there wasn't a specific scene pointed out in the novels, it did say that Sachi slept in Kirito's room.

On the downside, if Sachi had lived, there would be no Kiri-Asu.

Mmmmmeh, I don't really subscribe so much to the idea that Kirito and Sachi had anything romantic between them.

I think there may have been, but they both did not notice.

Dunno, I was more focused on how Heathcliff is going to be an uber hax-troll.

Cradil didn't really look like the homicidal maniac that he is huh? And a red paladin really looks pretty cool.

My impression when I saw EP1 OP is that........you are out of "male" good guy, so you lump two bad guys at the end of male casts ?

I rather hope they don't change RNR to make it seem Sachi and Kirito had a romantic thing going on. There was arguably potential for it, but I doubt that anything was actually going on by the time of her death.

I view it more of an emotionally co-dependant relationship, which would have gone unhea
Thy places while remaining non-sexual. I'm speaking from experience in this case, as i was in an online relationship once. Ten years ago, i befriended someone and then spent close to five years in a relationship that began as normal e-pals and mutated into an emotionally co dependant relationship. Managed to break off things, but she weren't happy, and to this day still holds a grudge.

...so, yeah. May have been for the cruel best that Sachi ade a real estate deal.

One day, there's got to be a fanfiction deconstructing the Sachi survives. Assuming Kirito ends up in the same position as Alicization, Bad End may well be quite likely. And of course, it's an ALO Bad End.

And Real Estate Deal is a rather interesting Euphemism.

Yeah I think that may have been it. But I would rather have two random dudes then those two. You can even put the blue haired dude from Ep 2 and two or one of the guys in Klein group.

At the very least take Cradil out and WTF was that make look heroic thing!

If it happen it happens and remember the author had a hand in the making of the anime so he may have ok a Sachi and Kirito romantic thing.
