To be fair, volume 2 was written after the events of 1which explains some inconsistencies. He is a reluctant hero meaning which is seen in his hesistant behaviour in saving them. Also what he said in volume 2 is for the benefit of Liz which is he rather die with her, which is way he went in when Asuna went in If he had gone in Klein and Asuna would have gone in and he would be responsible with putting their lives in danger instead. So he was hesistant.

Or the rage at events in Vol 3 / 4 in regards to Asuna... considering how the anime viewers are going on about her hiding behind Kirito during the conversation with her bodyguard, etc...

Needing to be rescued doesn't always make you a weaker person.

That's true, but it is a trope which is used too often. It would have been interesting if Kirito and Asuna's roles where reversed in vol3/4. It would have been a good way to let Asuna shine and subvert the "Damsel in Distress" trope.

Fairy Dance arc really made Asuna look like a weak kidnapped girl though to the point of tragic

To be fair, Asuna was also trying to get out herself, and without her throwing the GM Card to Yui, Kirito wouldn't have rescued her.

Oh, I understand the plight she is in, and don't blame her for it... She was heroic when it counted and it doesn't lessen her character at all.

I just expect the threads to be full of "Oh, she's a crappy character because she's always the damsel in distress".

In the situation, it was all rather tragic. But it doesn't weaken her character.

every volume somebody?..... i kinda read it all the way the translations let me... so i am a bit down....i did not think i would like it this much....

i accidentally found this manga(yeah i found the manga first read the 3 chapters released that time, and searched for the LN) while searching for a new game.....(this was 10 months ago)

i fell in love with the story and as i can see this Alicization arc seems to be the longest one yet, i think this will be easily 4 volumes long, because the story goes on 2 different planes which need to converge somehow. i hope Asuna gets a more active role now....lately she hasn't been fighting.....

Anyhow i hope the anime will get a go to the phantom bullet arc too....that would be awesome(cutting the rifle-bullet mid-air)

Doesn't look like there are enough episode for that to happen. Lets hope SAO wil get a second season. GGO is currently my favorite arc.

Well she's almost at the point of giving up though if it weren't for her hearing Yui's voice coincidentally.

Depends on if they decide to rush vol 3&4.

Don't think so. There is Lyfa in cast list but there is no Sinon.

I agree. I found the read more interesting than volume 3 and 4.

Uh wait til next season. They won't rush sao. They can milk the series. Although I don't know if a next season will be popular. A lot of people complain that SAO lacks any actual battle since majority of the series have been character development and plot build up.

But it does make her a damsel in distress, which is a trope a lot of people don't like, for a lot of reasons.
