I would be surprised that if it goes straight into action, because that would've been incredibly unnatural no matter how you look at it, with Kirito staggering towards wherever looking like he's about to die.

I think the Kirito vs Suguha counts as an action scene btw? It's actually pretty good as compared to some of the fights in the anime.

That fight is interesting because represents the things that Kazuto brought from the game. I really enjoyed it, when he did the flourish at the end trying to put them back in his back was great.

Ya know it's not really incest. Suguha is his cousin as stated in this episode. And first cousins can legally marry in Japan. Though I think some prefectures don't allow it too.

The term "incest" can apply to adopted family members. Regardless of legality status, cousin marriages can also still be viewed as incest in some places. Though I don't know how it is exactly in Japan. Just pointing out that there are different interpretations of what may or may not constitutes incest. Largely doesn't matter though, the world of fiction can write its own law and culture.

i think by definition it doesnt count as incest, but it can definitely be a smaller version of it

It still counts as incest, but legal incest in a number of places.In Sweden, half-siblings can actually legally get married!

Cousin relationship are not considered incestrous in Japan.
Although the fact they are adopted siblings puts kinks into the formula, technically speaking, Kirito and his sister would not be considered incest.

Due to them socially being bro/sis, a lot of people may view it that way, but it's stricktly social aspect and not physical.

The term 'incest' is relative, and so is the term 'blood-related'. In many places it only extends as far as your biological immediate family.

It's just stuff I learned having lived in two different hemispheres.

Funny how one episode brings up a whole topic about incest all of the sudden.

I was actually referring to the fact that they're no longer in the SAO world. It was weird to see everything out of the virtual world since we've watching it for the past 14 episodes.

Never said anything about action.

Kirito....(I'm not even going to call him his 'other name' because he's f*cking KIRITO, dammit. XD)
Why is it....every time that boy cries, I want to throw my arms around him and squeeze him tightly?

I love when guys aren't afraid to show their emotions.
REAL MEN CRY.
.......and save their girls from giant pervert scumbags. The way Sugo inhaled Asuna's hair and licked his lips was SOOO CREEPY!!

Ew, creeper.

WTF kind of episode was this? Is Kirito going to go back into a game? lol.

I'm interested to know how long he has been awake now, I didn't catch it in the episode if it was there. Also real world speculation, I'm also kind of suprised he has met or teamed up with other SAO survivors that we know of. Maybe that was who the email was from?

Also, I suppose Asuna's family status and position was what she was hinting at in the earlier episode when she asked what Kirito would do if he found out there was a whole other side to a person after they got married.

Oh wow, and here I though we would never learn anything about characters. Seriously, all this pieces of information should have been included before. Well maybe not all of them but tiny bits defiantly.

Sigh, another unrequited cousin love... Don't Japanese have any other ideas for unrequited love stories? It has become way too common in anime lately.
Besides Kirito has enough of a harem already =/

Otherwise a nice episode with different touch to it.
