A good, slow transition episode. Now, we see the aftereffects of the SAO incident.

Looks like Kirito forgot that his sword style is not suited in RL.

It's good that Kirito visits Asuna regularly but he should have been more assertive about his relationship with Asuna. Why do I get the feeling that Asuna's "fiance" will cause large amount of rage like what happened back in the Accel World thread?

Looks like Asuna and most likely the rest of the players are trapped in another game. Kirito coming back to the online world once more.

Wow, Suguha or Asuna....that's a tough choice.

That Suguha fanservice. My goodness.

I swear they picked Taketatsu Ayana for this role because they know the fans wanna see what an ideal Kirino looks like.

Oh wow I'm so excited, it seems to me the first 14 episodes actually set up the rescue the princess story.

Love the interaction between Kirito and his sister. New ebil guy is very hateful, so it is a bit strange compared to the really unseen ebil guy from the first section.

Is it just me, or does Suguha sound a little too cute for her image? I certainly wasn't expecting that voice to come out of her, and it's not as if Suguha isn't pretty or anything of the sort. Just... a little too child-like a voice for her looks.

For my part, I actually built my first computer when I was 13 months old. It was rather simple and couldn't do much besides send email and browse newsgroups, but it does prove that building a computer at the age of six is very possible.

I gave this episode a 9, as an anime only participant. I found very little to dislike about the episode as a whole. I'm also not concerned about the damsel in distress angle, as I have a feeling Kirito's sister will play a roll in helping him bring back the 300 or so gamers who are still trapped. Asuna isn't the only one trapped for crying outloud.

And does anyone really believe his sister is going to be the new love interest? Or that there is some love triangle going on now? Asuna owns Kirito's heart. Even his sister/cousin knows that...

I doubt there are many parent that would go out and buy a (rather expensive) PC as a toy for their TODDLER, who started walking a few months back, and had just barely begin to form intelligible sentences.

Nah, what I'm saying is totally realistic. I started learning about computers by installing RAM when I was about six weeks old and took baby steps from there, so by the time I built my first computer the September of '88 I'd been studying for well over a year. The early bird gets the worm, as the old saying goes.

A little more realistically... I was playing video games(Commando, Star Wars, Frogger, F15 Strike Eagle, etc) on a Commodore 64 that my dad got from my Uncle(a computer engineer) in the mid 80's. My dad had no clue how to use it, and I learned from notes written down until I could memorize the coding. I still have that old computer in storage somewhere...

Those were the days.

No, it is absolutely entirely possible that he was capable of doing it. With tech-savvy uncles/parents around, it could have been taught to him. Around that those years, they have already built personal computers. I had uncles around, that left parts all the time. They taught me some things, and my best friend was building while in his mid teens. My baby girl cousin was tech inclined as well by ages 7/8, so yes, these things are possible.

Also, Kirito is sort of tech genius of sorts. It would not be surprising that he had that love of computers, especially considering his mother was so tech savvy herself.

Read the posts again, we weren't talking about Kirito, but rather Dr. Casey's claim that he built a PC by himself when he was 13 MONTHS old, and that he was already installing memory sticks when he was 6 WEEKS old.

I don't care how tech-savvy your parents are, you ain't learning how to build a computer when you barely know how to talk and read, if at all.

Triple (and more) monitors are a gods gift to people who actually work on their computers. Nuff said.

Computers aren't hard to build. I think AMD taught a monkey to do it for marketing purposes, so with sufficient guidance, I could see a small kid putting together a computer.

Ya know guys in the end it's a work of fiction. No need to stress about the possibility of him building his own computer at age six. Just take it for what it is. Anyway as expected the pacing seems to have gotten considerably slower since no side stories will be aired this time and it's all straightforward storyline from here on out. I'm looking forward to seeing Yui again. If you've noticed in the OP she was in fairy Kiritos pocket. I'm guessing she became a pixie or something. Cute

Hmmm come to think of it his adoptive mother did say it was from junk parts. If we take that as old computer hardware then might have just put it together basing on watching how his mother worked.

And they are also useful for multi-tasking while gaming, it's much more relaxing to watch something while grinding for levels.
