What? Probably one of the most important scenes of the book is there, especially in light of the side stories being added in. The scene where Kirito shares the memory of Sachi and the Black Cats with Asuna. The first time he told what had happened to anyone. That was a really, really important scene.

He told Asuna about his past regarding Sachi and Black Cats not when they were having honeymoon, it happens after Kirito's defeat in Heathcliff's hand and his first day in KoB.

Fishing event is still important as a motivator due to the follow-on talk with the old dude though. I don't expect them to cut it out completely, although it may see the axe in one way or another. I wrote 1.5-2 because I expect Yui's story to take a full episode (it's not Aria-level long but it's not really short either) and the rest of the honeymoon to take at least half an episode.

Whatever happens, at least it will be interesting to see how they adapt it.

Yep my bad, I mixed it up with the conversation with the old fisherman guy. I just don't think they'll cut out the fishing for god scene and stuff since that's a decent chunk of a chapter.

The fishing itself could get a cut in a sense though, because the really important part is the conversation between the old man and Kirito itself rather than the fishing. Also yeah, it could be 1,5 episode for both honeymoon and Yui SS with Yui SS occupying the first 3/4 of the episode and the rest for the honeymoon(fishing included but might not for the Local God event since they can adapt it to a single fishing event instead)...But oh well, we'll see when the time comes

Also update on Vol.10 LN. Seems like Kirito got his butt kidnapped thus being indirectly a guinea pig for Kikuoka

This thread is actually for speculating on how the anime adaptation will be, not speculating what will happen in future in the novel.

Well episode 8 contains a major change from the novels -- there's a Laughing Coffin watching the duel between Kirito and Kuradeel. Which means (A) there's been no crusade, and (B) the anime writers still plan to deal with them. The only explanation I can think of is that when Kuradeel betrays the Blood Knights, he'll show up with a whole party of Laughing Coffins which Kirito and Asuna will have to wipe out.

Or that member tries to use Kuradeel for the murder part thing? teaches the para poison drink and so on, will see.

Pretty sure that's PoH in the crowd. He's got the same face as he did in episode 6. How did he lose his orange marker though?

Yeah, it should turn back, but it should take a pretty long time. Especially for the guy who practically invented murder in SAO.

Thought he was in a "red guild" so wouldn't he be past orange and into red already? or does guild not matter and he makes others do dirty work?

"Red guild" is simple the player nickname for murderers. There is no game mechanic for it. There's only green and orange, and orange doesn't care whether it's just an attack or a kill.

PoH doesn't strike me as a hands off kinda guy though.

mistake assumption on readers part. There is only Orange and Green. There is no actual Red Status, the players just use Red to differential Murders form your avg thief (Orange).

I think they just had him put there to give the anime viewers a connection to kuradeel, regarding his icon, just pure speculation, but if it works like any mmo's I played, you have something like a counter that turns orange at a certain level, like say stealing gives you ten points, killing gives you a hundred points, you regenerate one of those points back for every hour you play and every thousand XP you gain, basically means you can grind it off, which is what I think he did (for a long long while), after the crusade, also keep in mind, that some people actually might fight back, and successfull PK/PvP guilds usually do asmuch of PvE as normal PvE guilds do, for gear and XP, so they might have grinded some off during their active times aswell.

PoH in particular doesn't really strike me as someone who would be stupid enough to keep doing the killing part after the crusdae, and would rather have his henchman Johnny and XaXa do the dirty work, while he is trying to scout victims, or potential third parties who would carry out their revenge / murder lust

Also on a side note, I find it hillarious that the PK guildmembers are some of the few that have those typical GAMER names, as opposed to RP names like the rest of the cast.

Pretty sure Johnny and XaXa are in prison after the crusade, where they remain until the game is cleared.

Thanks for reminding me I really forgot about that part, I read the GGO arc a long while ago.

But my point is still at this point PoH would rather use henchmen or people he could lure to the dark side to do things, so his appearence during the duel actually makes a little sense to me, and I actualyl liked that change, and I am curious as they are going to conclude that, some short flashbacks, of PoH teaching Kuradeel how to mix the stun poison and the Crusade, showing Kirito kill two PK's for example, and the others getting locked up, especially like you reminded me, XaXa and Johnny, would be good.

(Honestly I am not sure why there has been no side story for that part yet.)

Maybe so, however he is not above doing the work himself. Dont forget he was the first to kill in SAO . He did not get someone do it for him he commited the act.
Yeah is does, but PoH is smart killer in the LN he would not be so stupid as to come out of hiding.
When the duel took place , the Crusade had already happend.
Its not unlikely.
Well we some info in the GGO arc.
