That bothered me during pretty much the whole damn episode.

I'm guessing someone missed a QC moment in the anime adaption somewhere.

Maybe he had to upgrade it a lot before it became better than his old weapon?

It's possible, or that they didn't bother to take note of it for Anime, guess lisbeth sidestory might tell more but will see.

Pretty sure the studio just didn't know, after all it was revealed to be a boss drop in Vol. 10.

Usually a boss drop is better than a random drop, in a Liz SS she mentioned that Dark Repulsor+39 (which is equivalent to Elucidator+39) can be exchanged with sword+20 from the front lines (currently 70th).

Using that as a measurement, Elucidator would be about as good as his sword+19 (in the anime), but it was also mentioned that Dark Repulsor could be enhanced 50 times, with such a high number being rare among weapons.
Anneal Blade had a limit of 8, my guess is that at the 50th floor swords have a limit of ~20-25? So unless Kirito enhanced it to the limit, he would use Elucidator.

But if he enhanced it to the limit, he must have used his sword for quite a few floors, so it is about time he exchanged it anyway. If he was using a relative new sword for the last few levels, he couldn't have enhanced it as much, so once again it would make sense to use his boss drop.

Another reason why the staff just missed that detail, from the intro at 56th floor to 59th floor, it looks like Kirito was using the same sword (the handle&guard looks exactly the same), so for the last 3 floors he was using&enhancing an old sword when he had a strong&new sword in his inventar? Very unlikely.

Edit: When I look at my post I didn't realise I was writing so much

coz when vol 10 is published, we just know that time that Kirito got Elucidator from 50th floor. and pretty much the anime is already aired, so the staff didn't have time to fix it

How spoilerish is "There is but one ultimate way" in regards to Alicization? I kind of want to read it but don't want to spoil myself too much.

I just finished Mother's Rosario.

it might spoil you about the end of the whole arc, or at least the end of this specific DIVE, because according to something I read, Alicization arc is gonna last unitl volume 15. Therefore, I can't imagine that Kritio is gonna spend so much time in that specific dive. I imagine and speculate that this dive into UW won't last past volume 11 or twelve, because I imagine that Sinon's experience with the last winner of BoB is connected to alicization, but I can't imagine how the author is gonna connect it to the current storyline, unless the author is planning to shift from kirito's and asuna's story to the development of other characters which will ultimately lead everyone to the end of Alicization, making it the last arc

anyway, the chapter spoils you on:

Okay...do I have to answer this now?

Translations for volume 10 will be very slow, I can tell you that.

It might be just me, but sometimes I think whenever Asuna makes an appearance my interest level just quadruples.

Man, don't sweat it.

1) I can't imagine that translating is easy or fast, independently of the language. let's add to that the fact that just reading japanese is by itself hard, and people still need a dictionary.

2) I think we prefer a good translation over s fast but sloppy translation.

So, i can only close this "speech" by thanking you for translating volume 10, and all previous translations.

Kikuoka only counts as Aizen when he takes off his glasses and changes his hair.

You have to be f***ing kidding me. Kikuoka, the guy from the JSDF with glasses does "that"?. Could that be considered plagiarism.
