Wow, that fight ended very quickly At least we got to see OG Kirito again in his Aincrad outfit.

Also wasn't expecting Charlotte to come back. What a good spider friend ;_;

Huh, a lot of these "epic" battles are finished up pretty quickly. I wish they were longer drawn out.

They cut out some Alice solo with Chudelkin before he summon Fire elements. They're currently adapting the last 4 episodes from 1 volume and the pacing is suffering because the volume is packed with events. They're rushing to a certain conclusion in cour 2 finale, so if they don't rush now there won't be room to breathe in last 2 episodes.

In Chudelkin fight there should be some Kirito's inner character breakthrough, anime just have to cut it so it became a very bland scene:

Spoiler for more context of Chudelkin fight in LN:

Kirito becoming the Black Swordsman again for a brief moment to skewer Chudelking was a pretty awesome moment .

It was interesting actually getting more into Quinella's perspective through her dialogue with Kirito, as she justifies her actions as an attempt to exert meaning and control in her life rather then bow down to the whims of Rath and the purpose they forced upon her world. I'd almost kind of respect her for it if not for all the awful things she's done as a result .

It must be a pretty big shock for Eugeo and Alice to learn that Kirito isn't actually from their world but from the "outside," and that their entire world and civilization could be reset at the flick of a switch. If it wasn't for what was already going on in front of them I imagine that could be pretty horrifying .

Somehow it really doesn't surprise me that Quinella eventually planned to phase out the Integrity Knights for, basically, robots. And frankly I don't blame her. That Sword Golem was able to take our heroes out in five seconds, could you imagine an army of those at Quinella's command ?

I never thought I would feel so bad for a spider. I guess it also deepens the question of the value of an artificial life, especially when one that isn't even supposed to be as advanced as the AI of the Fluctlight's with their souls still makes the choice to sacrifice itself of it's own free will .

With Cardinal is in the fray it's finally final boss time .
