Oh, I thought that the immobility would have caused the liquids to not drain away causing the "fat" effect I was talking about. Anyways it's not that I'm complaining about it, I was just curious. So thanks.
Agree about the uplifting scene, btw.

There's a few bits from the novels that got "lost in adaptation" that I think are relevant to some of things that have been discussed in this thread.

Spoiler for Novel Foreshadowing Cut From Episode 10:


Spoiler for Novel Version of Hospital Scene:


Might not entirely satisfy some of you people, but I thought they were points worth bringing up.

Thanks for sharing that.

If nothing else, the novels handled the hospital scene much, much more believably than the anime did.

So yeah, that's good to know.

There is also a rather obvious answer to where hospital staff may be. Kirito was delayed a few minutes watching the end of the world and and such. So before that so did everyone else wake up. If there were more then Kirito at that specific hospital, then expect the staff to be busy checking up on the ones that awoke before him.

So Lisbeth's sword broke, and Kirito used Asuna's to replace it. Symbolic?

Poor blacksmith girl can't even get a break there.

With 10 more episodes to go (I think), it may be too early to start exclaiming earlier threads that were started in this series will be ignored. Though, perhaps I'm being overly optimistic in that regard.

So many people acting like this was the last episode.

Which makes sense when you think about it. What's the ultimate driving force behind any MMO? Loot. Being able to pick up the weapons of players you kill would be an expected PvP feature.

It's not the last episode but it does kind of feel like having just watched the final scene in a lengthy blockbuster movie. You know that there's a Sequel coming up for it soon, but it'll likely have new villain, new setting, new characters, etc... so while the main couple is still going to be around, everything else is up in the air.

So yeah, it does feel like an ending of sorts, just not the ending of Kirito's story in total.


I am looking forward to seeing "real life" Asuna and Klein. And I'm hoping (albeit just faintly) that we'll get to see "real life" Lisbeth and Silica.

I kinda have to ask: what happens to the breasts of coma patients? Because what happens to their muscles is not pretty.

Breasts are actually mostly fat, so wont disapear due to lack of exerciese. If some support is worn so may they even be less saggy then if they walked around

Let's not worry about that, we all know in anime they are beautifully shaped

BTW a friend told me a funny alt ending for last night's episode. XD

"I'm in a hospital... And I'm starving... Wait... Hospital food? SCREW THAT! ASUNA! ASUNA! MAKE ME A SANDWICH!"

[Just a joke, don't take it seriously ]

I was happy that he didn't look exactly like his SAO avatar as well, along with the long hair. I had been worried that he was just going to look like a thin version of himself.

I'm so glad I bothered to watch beyond the first 5 episodes, because this is turning out to be a great anime. Loved the episode!
9/10.

I'd do the same thing in his shoes, hospital food was my main motivator to get the hell out as soon as possible.

He was just searching for the two purposes of his life:

Asuna and her hand made meal.... He loves them both. It worths the risk!!!!

Smart word play...not really

Just wondering, shouldn't hospitals provide slippers?
Kirito is walking barefooted down the corridor.
