Watching Nomi struggling while being between the wall and the sword is quite amusing :heh:.

It seems he wants to compete with Kradeel for the most distortioned face of the year :heh:.

Nomisosoup backs story and his origin or his "scar" and the source of his I.S. system revealed but I don't care about him.

Good to average episode. The fight scene with Noumisoshoup and Taku is good. One sided win for Taku but he let his guard down so he got beaten.

Black vice shows up too and Black Lotus. Next episode is one on one fight with Taker and Crow. Hope it will be good too.

Do you mean Kradil (the one Kirito killed)? If yes, Noumi wins, his face is 10/10, while Kradil is more like 7.5/10.

Miraluka 2012-09-14 13:12

Oh--- oops?

I mixed up names XD.

Yusei Fudo 2012-09-14 13:20

When Black Lotus appeared at the end, it was too awesome :P

Deltaray 2012-09-14 13:47

Vorpal Strike? Dam Kawahara really took elements from SAO when he wrote AW, and yeah, those Noumi's expressions god.

serenade_beta 2012-09-14 13:54

Facial distortions BANZAI~~~ ヽ(*∀`)ノ
But because Noumi himself isn't that charismatic of a character (albeit the more entertaining one in this anime), it feels like he was just facial distorting for the sake of distorting.
Take a lesson from Marik.

ah.... you do know vorpal strike is a sword attack in an rpg game right? like persona series perhaps and its older than SAO and SAO first shows up in the web as a web comic or a fan fiction type with original characters and such.

So I can't say that for vorpal strike. Sure nervgear is someone that SAO has and some terminology was from SAO but the author is the same and by timeline wise only. AW is predecessor of SAO in way but the author denies that which is funny even though he is using the other as reference for his current work :heh: :heh:

Chiyu's sudden change of heart was kinda suspicious.
Sudden death duel with Nomi, now that was a risk.
What a surprise... Nomi never plays fair.
I was glad Taku finally found some strength.
Not that it did him much good since he's still too naive.
Yet another fight where Kuroyukihime lends a hand.
That Haru is still pretty disappointing since he's unable to defeat others without her holding his hand.

thundrakkon 2012-09-14 14:59

That was an entertaining episode. I really did hope that they get the whole Noumi arc over with, but I guess since we've come this far, I can wait for the last episode.

That was very awesome for Black Lotus to show up. I was expecting Lime Bell to start healing, but so far, she seems relatively useless. However, how the heck did Black Lotus know to come at this time to save them? Only logical conclusion? Chiyuri told her when there was one minute to go (well, the other logical one is Taku told her, but I doubt that). Hence, it was significant when Haru said 1 minute to go before the dive. It took KYH a whole minute in the real world to go from Okinawa to Tokyo.

Haru's arrogance almost got him and Taku killed in game. Thank goodness someone had enough sense to notify KYH.

As for Silver Crow, when those armor platings broke off, did he evolve? Or is it just the normal armor breaking in fights we see?

Still, Black Vice was quite cocky thinking he could take on Black Lotus. His voice actor sounds like the author's voice, which was used in the beginning for random scrub guy.

Still that was too awesome with Black Lotus. She has been missed. Now, hopefully the next episode will clear everything up, like what is Chiyu's real reason for doing what she did.

Vorpal Strike, at least it isn't an overhead strike:heh:

Seriously, from 20.00 to 21.00, changing the place every few minutes, if I was Noumi I'd just send a reply saying 'Hurry up, time is money/burst points':eyespin:
After all the precautions they took, they were still ambushed. Though they couldn't expect that someone existed who could regulate his mental clock, so it was a pretty nice ambush. Just shows once again that they are no ordinary students, I imagine if that BIC programming failed even a little bit, it would have disastrous consequences.

The Japanese must have something against lance users, the amount of pain they have to suffer is beyond normal:heh:

For a second I thought Haru was going Trans-Am, but he just shed armour to increase his speed and possibly strength. I wonder if that was his first step into movement and strength enhancement IS?

KYH just showed up like a boss, her entrance scene reminded me of F/SN Rider's Bellerophon, very fitting. The shining prince (KYH) comes to the maiden's (Taku) rescue:heh:

Can't wait to see Black Vice against Black Lotus.
Black Lotus uses Vertical slash against Black Vice.
It is ineffective!:D
On a more serious note, Black Vice's avatar is just crazy, what kind of trauma did he have to create that sort of duel avatar?

tsunade666 2012-09-14 15:47

Haru shedding armor gives him more agility and dexterity but not strength since he become lighter. In truth, his attack become lighter but that doesn't concern an IS attack which is powered by the will of the owner.

Actually the Vorpal Sword is even older than that. Ehem Through the Looking-Glass (Alice in wonderland sequel book) ehem. And as for appearance in a game setting, iirc it appeared in the old pen and paper dungeons and dragons somewhere in one of many source books.

And with all this references, we couldn't end this without saying: "Off with his head!"

Krytonis 2012-09-14 16:32

Just amazing. Truly amazing. I was not expecting Black Lotus to arrive! Even if she did, I didn't expect her to use the reigns she got from Sulphur Pot! Now that I can see Silver Crow being more confident now that his master has arrived, I can already tell that the next episode is going to be fantastic. Perhaps Silver Crow may learn a new move? Who knows?

I can't wait! Cyan's true love for Lime Bell sure is romantic! Just seeing Chiyu in pain really pisses me off the post! I hope he dies. (._.) Cyan Pile is truly a warrior to use his fears to create a new weapon that looks totally awesome. I did not quite understand the moment when Silver Crow's armour fell off when he was escaping the blocks. Did it break? Or was it disconnected to become lighter? Or is it his new form? (>_>) Stupid curiosity! :D

Spoiler for New OST:

j0x 2012-09-14 19:15

Black Vise looks freaking strong but Kuroyukihime to the rescue!!!
Black Vise is animated in 3D too and looks great

ZGMF-X10A 2012-09-14 19:19

omfg I hate the Noumi kid so much. I just wish this arc will end, and Silver Crow destroys him.

Awrya 2012-09-14 21:08

Once again, instead of hating Noumi with every new episode, just enjoy his facial expressions. They truly are one of the greatest sources of entertainment in AW:heh:

Squarecrow 2012-09-14 21:36

Pretty lame way Taku's fight ended just so Silver Crow can be the one to beat him.
