Actually, a lot of the essence was missing as well. The talk between Kirito and Asuna over bread was really shallow since all the shoring up/buildup for it (their meeting in the dungeon at the beginning of Aria) was completely axed. And I would have thought this whether I read the novels or not. They had all of 6 minutes of scenes together (the majority of which was listening to people talk and not actually conversing between each other), and then suddenly they were having this deep conversation coming from who knows where. Cutting this down to one episode hurt.

And worse, the ED turned up being bland and generic. The best I can make of this is that we'll get to the main story faster......
