Well the novel translation did state that he "whispered a name". We don't know who though.

It's like Star Ocean 3 (if you've ever played it); Sophie is supposed to be the main girl, yet after 20 minutes into the game, she's gone for the entire first disc.

They could air GGO and Mother's Rosario in one season. Hardly any Asuna the first time and hardly any Kirito the next to balance things out

Main character doesn't always have to be shown on everything. They're shown according to the stories main highlight. In Aincrad and ALO, Asuna isn't the main highlight so she didn't have much screentime.

But starting off an entire new season of a show that's going to be watched by people who haven't read the base material is a very different thing. If we were somewhere a ways into the season when Phantom Bullet started then it would be different, but we'd be starting it off with little to no appearance from the main heroine.

Personally I would hope they fit Asuna in the Phantom Bullet arc. That way everybody wins. (execpt any novel purists who'll complain that changes from the novel suck no matter what )

But Asuna has a decently long part at the start of GGO, when her and Kirito are on the date.

While I agree with you for the most part, what you're asking requires some real skills, specially on the script writing department. I'm not sure A1 has that kind of resources (and money) to undertake such work. It's way more easy to leave things as they are and hope the fans would eat it like they have been doing till now. The okaku are pretty shallow people: they'll miss Asuna at first but they'll get used to Sinon fairly quickly and after a while won't even notice Asuna isn't around anymore lol.

Well, Asuna is still main heroine of all of the SAO worlds including GGO and MR. A Queen doesn't have to talk a lot and be seen a lot to understand her or make her appear important in the story... We just watched ALO where her screen time is limited from a couple of seconds to 5 minutes per episode...

Asuna will always be the Queen. One or two glimpse of her in GGO is enough to show all who owns Kirito.....

So... About the name part...
No one, neither the LN novel readers that have read all the novels know what he have said?

^ AFAIK, there is no news or announcement of a AW season 2, yet.
And remember double posting is something MODS frown on.

Except there is no reason for Kirito to be sad for Kayaba when looking at Aincrad. Sachi is associated with sad memories and Aincrad for Kirito.

I agree with you completely.
Looks like the anime change this from the Light Novel.
In LN, he says(IMO) Sachi's name and in the anime changed to "Arigatou, Kayaba.".
