Heh, Fuka and LLENN actually makes a pretty good pair together.

This episode went pretty fast with all the action. Too bad Pito missed out.

That first fight was amazing to watch, llen is really good at this.

I found it a little tedious to have every named team go by their comment at every action but the episode flowed very well.

I can’t believe pito listened to m and stayed out this entire time without going nuts and going solo

Great episode, but there are things that ruined this episode :






The retardation from the 1st Squad Jam is here again
Twice in an episode
I mean, c'mon... This tactic is so stupid

Also there are several translation mistakes




What he actually said "The favorites to win are still alive"




Not ambush, but "meet the enemy" or "intercept"

"How many times have I told you not to fire them out in the open?"

"Under the radar. Under the radar! That's how we survive. If you bring unnecessary attentions or the Pink Devil down here, we're through. You're out there, sitting in the open, waiting to get shot at, calling yourselves the I accept my demise. "Team I accept my demise. we accept demises." What is this, Call of Duty?"

No excusing the first team, but as for the second... The perspective there is bad, so you can't see it easily, but they're actually getting cover from the train platforms on either side of them, so it's not as bad of a position as it seems. Still, a sniper in an elevated position could pick them off easily, and (as we saw) they're wide-open for artillery.

From memory, there's a little bit of deviation from the source which makes things a little stranger than they otherwise should have been (as far as the specifics are concerned, not the conclusions)

This was a fun episode, and it even didn't mention the stupid motivation bit that I'm actively trying to ignore. But having ignored the little bits where it's mentioned it sure was fun. If only they were playing for the fun of it rather than some stupid edgey reason, it would be quite a bit better.

I'm still not sure there isn't going to be a punchline of Pito going "Wait, you thought I was going to do what?!? Why?"

That's going to feel like a hell of an asspull at this point given how even OTHER people see Pito as carrying a GIGANTIC sign I'M FUCKING UNSTABLE AND ONE BOTHER AWAY FROM GOING KHORNATE BESERKER.

What other people? Aside from M, it's really just LLENN and that Memento Mori guy. And I question their reasons for thinking Pito's crazy.

M, of course, could be right. But he could also be the only crazy person involved. (I'm not going to argue M's sanity. That guy's bonkers.)

Cracked me up when I saw the second team in the same formation. Basically there's a lot of noobs in this tournament for some reason. They even had energy weapons even though it's pvp.

I guess most of the good players just don't care about Squad Jam. Even then, I think LLENN mentioned that there are qualifiers, except for teams that did well in the previous one. So these teams made it through how exactly?

because the others were even more stupid , would have been a good comedy to watch the qualifiers

What reason do you have to doubt Memento though? LLENN is going on hearsay that fits with her impression of her, but Memento is only giving personal account of his experience partying with her, and the impression he got was one of someone who was filled with an abnormal bloodlust that he and the other teammates couldn't handle. The fact that she then hopped from party to party, unable to stay anywhere long, and soon found that no one would team up with her seems to support this assessment. It doesn't confirm anything, but it does fit what you'd expect if the guy was right about her basically not wanting to care about "life" and seek death for all, including herself and her teammates along with her enemies.

Frankly, the only reason I can see for questioning his impression is by the inverse assumption that a person couldn't be that crazy. But as long as one assume it's possible to be that in love with death, there's really no reason to doubt him. That doesn't mean he can't be lying, but why would he? And for that matter, how many eyewitness accounts or failed relationships would it take before we should accept that it's more than just the delusion of her admirer?

Because, when you come down to it, all Memento Mori's said is that Pitohui doesn't take the game as seriously as he does. Which, when you think about it, makes it sound like she's saner than he is. GGO is just a game, not a matter of life and death. Pito's clearly more into having fun than into RPing and bleak "realism". Does that make her a bit of a troll? Maybe. But honestly, by the tea bagging Leeroy Jenkins standards of our world, I'm not sure she actually qualifies.

Seriously, some Edgelord tells you a girl is crazy for not caring about dying in an FPS, which one would you normally think's actually crazy, if you had to pick one?

As I recall, he said she's crazy more because she kills her own teammates given the slightest opportunity.

Llenn and Fuka bring down the pain! Sure, it was to a bunch of jobbers, but hey, gotta show they have what it takes somehow, and seeing the little rabbit knife someone's crotch, amongst other shows of badassery, sure is a fun way to do so. Props for the small talk remaining fun, specially llenn's comment about how wiretraps got her nervous in real life.
