Crazy story.
Wow, what did I miss in this spin-off while Kazuto and his friends were still trapped in SAO?
And all this time Pito was well, suffering in a different way?
I bet Pito really wanted to hear what happened in there from the players that survived.

I feel Sigsawa had a blast coming up with that one.

Man what a strange episode. The way it portrays M and Pitou's craziness was awkward to say the least: I'm really not sure if I'm supposed to laugh or not. The idea of two people so crazy as to kill themselves and each other is a really dark subject in itself and at certain moments it treats it as such and yet at the same time tries to play it up as comedy as well. I wonder why LLEN is even remotely interested in getting involved in this puddle of crazy. If I were her, I'd stay as far away from them from here on out and maybe inform the authorities myself. And that's a shame because I actually liked Pitou and M but this revelation has been a huge turn off.

I have to wonder just how much of what Goushi said is exaggeration on his part.

What I've been thinking all along was: does Goushi have any proof that Pito will actually kill someone?

A lot of disturbed people that talk about killing someone or themselves in the end don't do anything.

As far as we know Pito is not a murderer (yet) and she is still alive. And if she had attempted suicide before I think he would have mentioned that.

Of course I'm not saying that he should ignore those dangerous claims, but I wouldn't be absolutely sure about those either. Perhaps Pito just wants to mess with him, perhaps for Pito it's all make believe.

Of course normally I would be inclined to believe that if someone is as sure as something as Goushi is, he has a reason to be so... but Goushi doesn't quite seem completely sane himself, so I see it quite possible that perhaps he's being all that alarmed for nothing.

BTW, has it been suggested before that "M" might stand for "Masochist"?

Goushi really does not count as a reliable source of information. LLEN was already on the fence about the next SJ so she let those claims push her over even if she has doubts about it.

I think Pito is probably going to turn out to be a chuunibyou idol with Goushi as her overly excitable manager.

So Pito would be me where I lament missing the chance to be struck in a death game

EP 6

It is clear now that :

GGO >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> SAO
LLENN >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Kirito

The interaction between real M and LLENN was so fun

^It's better if MC has romance too imho
Would develop LLENN/Karen's character more dealing with her complex
Since SAO failed hard coz except Asuna, every girl just fangirling Kirito

But really for two years Pito was in agony in a different way while people trapped in the game has to go through that hell.
I want to know what exactly Pito was doing during those two years and what M was doing the whole time.
M, even in real life he has to be so over dramatic, not that I don't like it.

Makes me wonder what would happen to Pito if some other players beat Pito in a fight instead of Llenn.

So this makes Llenn's complex of her heights is on hold.
Just hold on to that thought until Pito and M cases are done.

I wouldn't mind if her complex get revisited in some fashion soon or later, but she already got enough self confidence not depend on her appearance so from most part it's solved.

It showed before, but its worth saying: the gymnastics club is adorable. Its like they jumped straight out of a kirara manga, down to the archetypes. There's even a half russian girl! Well, that would be more like love live, but the point stands. What was actually surprising to me was the revelation I had during that sequence: we just spent half the series on a flashback! The club fawning over Karen kicking butt was literally the first thing we saw! It doesn't anger me though, just a curious fact, though I do wonder what was even the point, its not like we didn't get a glimpse of Karen's real body before that.

And speaking of Karen, poor girl, some looney drags her into his messed up romance story and takes her first kabedon (best part of the epidode to me). That said, I do appreciate having a proper plot to look forward to rather than episodic adventures, and personally, I can see someone like Pito come up in the SAO universe, that is, someone so messed up the idea of a death game looks attractive. Lookimg forward to see what's next, especially Karen's galpal joining the game.

Also, to complement others' opinons, not only does Karen beat Kirito by a longshot, she's ten times better than all the other SAO girls combined.

Okay. I was going to suggest that Karen was the "Only Sane (Wo)man, but there is her attraction to P-Chan.

I've seen hentai less blatant than her sexual attraction to the P90.

So no one here is sane.

Just for reference on the timeline: the original novels are strictly linear (well, except one scene and that scene was skipped in the anime anyway). I presume the animators wanted a flashy first episode so skipped around a bit. I would expect the rest of the episodes to be in a linear timeline.

The tutorial woman? Though she's a NPC...

Lack of brutal backstory gives her points, or at least to me it does.

And yet she's terrified when it speaks to her. Guess Karen is into the slient and complying types

Thanks for the info.

That's your definition of sanity? I'll stick to Karen's P-sexuality, thanks.

Tragic backstory is pretty neutral plot device, on it's own it's neither bad or good. Regardless it works for her.

And it's not even that brutal, spiderman and Bruce had it much worse.
