I don't think the LN's have touched upon that one. Fair bet they're different, but who knows?

Seeing as it first comes up in the main story as unarmed and later is expanded upon in a side story as "martial arts", it's probably a reference to the same sort of skill. Though it's not on Kirito's skill list, and we know that he erased two-handed sword skill in order to pick up fishing so it wasn't that one either. We can probably chalk this one up to continuity error and expect to see it fixed in the future.

Alicization has been split. It wasn't named chapter 2 in volume 10 as a accident.

guys, I know it's being used because we can't think of a better short word for the concept, and also, considering this is just a LN novel, but I really don't feel comfortable reading the word retard... I don't know why i feel like this, but I just do.

I'm not demanding nor rebuking nor critizing you guys. But i would appreciatte it if we could use something less crude... we could use brain damage or something. still, it's just a suggestion

I apologize beforehand if I bother anyone with this post

Retarded isn't supposed to be derogatory, people only use it like that colloquially. However it is only meant to mean slower than normal or impaired mentally

Well it's the people who treat the word as it it was degoratory. *shrugs*

Question to the translators: how many parts is Rondo of the Transient Sword supposed to be?

So from how the latest episode ended. I'm guessing its going to end with volume one. So how are they going to integrate Yui into the story. Thats what I'm curious about.
For the anime, they haven't reached that point chronologically, but it is integral to the plot so they won't remove it.

Meh, knowing how things go with LN, probably with some love, crisis, and bad ass determination.

And also,

Spoiler for GGO Chapter 7 Volume 5:


So Kirito thinks he's weak because he can't kill anymore? Doesn't he like this new way of thinking? He imposed it on other people before.

The two people he cut were the two unnamed Laughing Coffin members he killed during the crusade. The extra third person is Kuradeel whom he killed in volume 1 in self-defense (or rather, defending Asuna who came to rescue Kirito from him).

Now that I remember, Higa's fluctlight copy collapsed after 4 minutes, but there was an earlier incident where a copy was created.
Quote:
" - Are you alive?"
With that short question, I heard an answer after the briefest instant of silence.
『You could say that I am, and you could say that I'm not. In a sense, I am - an echo of Kayaba Akihiko's consciousness, an afterimage.』
Kayaba was acknowledged as a genius the same as Higa and while it isn't certain that Kayaba's method is the same as fluctlight, what is the reason Kayaba can accept that he is a copy?
The same with Kirito in the webnovel, how come they could accept that they aren't 'unique'?

Any chances Kayaba gets hired by Kikuoka?

He thinks he is weak because he ran away of the memory of killing those LC members. He killed them, restrained XaXa, ignored his name, and simply buried the memory.

To be fair, retarded is a medical term, and is used for persons whom the mental development is slowed and is not developed as per norms - the whole original meaning of retarded is "slowed". As another example, USAF refers to bombs that are slowed via Snakeye fins or parachute as retarded bombs.

That said, Kirito's condition is, I believe, more akin to a Persistent Vegetative State - at least, on the external perspective. (also known as being in a coma.)

its the first time i hear that it is a medical term... Here in chile, or at least thorough my life, it's been used with a very derogative intent.
