Not sure, but may be wiser to do it.
Besides, Mother's Rosario was a great arc, focusing majorly on Asuna.

Was discussing this elsewhere and was reminded by relentlessflame's post in the News & Anticipation thread, but now I wonder about how they plan to divide the story along cours.

It's a common thing nowadays to split seasons with multiple cours across the year. So it's possible that with 4 cours, they'll actually give us 2 cours from Fall to Winter, take Spring off, and then continue in Summer or Fall with the next 2 cours.
Thing is, if they do decide to split the anime in half like that, then the end of Volume 14 would definitely be the end of the second cour. That's roughly half-way through the story by page count, BUT, Volume 16-18 are really fast paced, with nearly constant fighting. If they were forced to fit Vols 15-18 into two near cours, I feel that the content would end up being really dragged out.

I'm curious to see how the new director handles this problem (if it's a problem at all, and I'm not just over-worrying)
But overall, I'm just excited to finally see this arc thru

The problem is Vol 9-14 are like 2,000 pages total while Vol 15-18 are like 1,500 pages total. Splitting it into 2+2 cours seems unlikely, unless some scenes such as the real world scenes in Vol 9-14 are moved into the second half. Maybe they will air it 4 cours straight.

Oh, that would make sense. So for the first two cours, we wouldn't know what Asuna and them are up to, and have all the RL stuff pushed to the next half.
I'm also not confident they'll do 4 cours straight, given that that'll probably strain production, but it's always a possibility.

According to SAO Wikia's reports from SAO:Alicization's screening, it seems participants heard Matsuoka mention that the 4 cours will be split 2x2 after all.
For now, it's still not fully confirmed, but there's been more than one person claiming the same.

I've heard that the books themselves are mostly self-contained. There is no grand plot going on that connects everything and the arcs loosely related in that they are sequential and some characters and things might be reference or reappear. Otherwise it Krito goes through VRMMOs and has fun or not. So SAO S1 is the only one you really need to have seen as most of core cast appears there and basics of it's universal is established there.

Personally I hadn't even finished the first season until recently since dropping it halfway nearly a decade ago. I've only picked it back up due to urging of some friends and becasue GGO: Alternative gainer some good will towards the franchise for me. I don't know how much better the writing will be but I'm willing to give Alicization a chance for a bit at least.

I don't quite agree with you. While each arc may seem self-contained, they actually give a bit more to the overall plot of the story.

Looks like Yuuna's father will appear in Alicization anime. He's not originally in the LN or WN and I thought he would be in the movie only. So I wonder how much role he will have in the anime?

Someone please tell me a summary detailed of this arc please, because for time and a lack of interest and time (and not having watched well the last 2 seasons of anime) I think I'll pass on this, even if it seems more interesting.

Excuse me for asking this, but...were Kirito and Eugeo's Valets still raped in the LN? It seems they were in the WN...

No. They were gonna be and the scumbags waited for Eugeo to see them do it and him not be able to do anything about it since it was on the pretense of punishment for the girls which makes it within the rules. It didn't happen because of Eugeo overcoming the rules at the cost of his eye.

Oh, thank goodness. That one always weighted heavily on my mind. And I never remembered of coming here to get such weight lifted

Seeing the new season reminds me I still need to read the 2nd volume of the Alicization arc, the one with Asuna on the boat. The info dump got a little boring but it seems helpful to read the story and then see it all fleshed out. Story may make more sense too. I don't know how far they are going into the show so I don't know when they will reach the 2nd volume, seems soon though.

Alicization v02 adaptation begins in this week's episode.
So yeah, time to see Asuna rocking the boat, it seems

google translate:
Kirito, Asuna, Alice challenge Survival MMO "Unital Ring"!

Kirito and Asuna, and a mysterious game where Alice suddenly got involved. That name is "Unital Ring". The harsh "survival MMO" begins in the new world where all the VRMMOs built with "The Seed" program merged!
