I can't see the "nobody remove anyone's helmet" threat surviving intact for very long. When faced with the death or even potential death of a loved one, people do crazy things (like removing VR helmets). Pulling a helmet off really quick seems like it would be a viable way to get around every way the NervGear has to kill.

I'm sure Kayaba would be able to detect when this is done (since NervGear can read brain signals - a brain that dies over the course of several seconds probably looks really different from a brain that just isn't there anymore). I can see Kayaba killing a number of players randomly when he detects that this has occurred. The person who survived would still be totally fine though. I don't see Kayaba killing EVERYONE though. He probably wants to continue his game - and wants to motivate those outside the game to allow those inside to continue playing for as long as possible.

The threat has survived for so long because those 213 deaths he mentioned at the start were all from family members attempting to remove the NerveGear, and it killing them before the attempt could be completed.

In other words, people already tried crazy things with uniformly fatal results.

Wow, I'm awake for it today! Episode 8 preview is out. It'll probably be ripped to Youtube soon.

Cooking! Casual clothes! Looks like there's a fight too, I guess.

Edit: It seems that the user MrTerrorist gets the videos from uploads them before the SAO twitter updates.

Partially. I expect that it also has to do with the following of certain etiquette that no longer has any grasp in the West.

Haha, I'll stop posting them. I only posted it since I was conveniently awake and checking Twitter when the SAO twitter updated. I don't check the Youtube channel and it seems that the Youtube channel is faster anyway, so it'd probably be faster for you to post it.

Well, it's also due to a lot of socio-economic factors. Remember that Japan has one of the highest standards of living and a relatively flatter income distribution than other first world countries..

A lack of poverty makes for a low crime rate for sure.

More Asuna fans, makes you wonder if a girl made her job to be literally idol/model, who earns money by selling pictures of herself?

The preview ends with Kirito going for the kill/hit.
That shield is BIG and it is even cross-shaped like the guild logo. I winder if that red cross is player made, like enhancing or painting?
