Uggggh @ that CG Dragon, in fact the whole fight was pretty lackluster since consisted of 90% stills. Bleh

Aside from that, not bad episode. I liked Lizbeth/bet quite a bit, moreso at beginning then before she randomly decided to fall for Kirito since having a platonic relationship with at least one female character is bad thing for whatever reason. If the show wasn't so intent sledge hamming KiritoxAsuna, I would pretty much root for her and Kirito despite fairly forced way she fell for him. Now I wonder why Kirito wanted a sword with same strength as his old one rather than one stronger...

The show still suffers from the general issues that plague the series from episode 2 onwards (awkward writing, disjointed timeskips etc) so there no real point in repeating that. Kirito testing her sword without asking her or not offering compensation felt rather out of character. I also don't see why he needed climb the belltower to find her when he has a tracking skill, not to mention she's likely on his friends list. It's pretty bad sign when a show forgets it's own mechanics not introduced too long ago.

Overall pretty pleasant this week. 7/10

lol are you kidding me? Every semi-important female character wants him, no reason for her not to either. Subtlely isn't this show strong point, plus Kirito seemed like he noticed her feelings himself.
