Overall kinda underwhelming, since it's fun to watch but lacking in substance.
I thought there would be some dramatic irony with Pito dying from using a NerveGear but apparently not

Elsa Kanzaki looks likes she's 11, wtf M

I don't believe for a second any of the obvious psychological problems these two people have are resolved



Tomorrow's headline: "Singer Elsa Kanzaki found dead in Tokyo hotel from auto-erotic asphyxiation."

Not a perfect one, but still enjoyed it. Probably my favorite SAO, despite i'm not a fan. Now, it's time to wait till October and see how SAO III works.

I liked a lot about LLENN's character, it's just too bad that it never felt fully explored.

The serious psychological issues with Pito and M felt completed washed over. Pito was presented as someone who seriously wanted to commit murder/suicide in real life, and would have murdered in SAO.

Did Pito have original NerveGear or not? Was she that mentally unstable that the pain feedback doesn't register properly with the updated Gear? Kinda like how Karen/LLENN would get auto-logged out at the beginning of the series just from the shock of character creation, but at the end she can take enough pain to remain logged in.

Elsa looks stupidly young, but she looks about the same age as the Amazon team IRL so if she's 18 now, she was 15 when SAO came out. Goushi was in college. "Alarm bells are ringing"

Gotta go for the smooch on the neck.



I enjoyed it, if there ever is a S2 (this is SAO so there probably will be one) I'll give it a watch. Goodbye LLEN and friends.

I would say that I'm disappointed about the fairly shallow story, but in reality the entertainment didn't come from the story. I had a great time just turning my brain off and enjoying the show for what it is. There's no deep story or surprising plot twists; we pretty much knew what we were going to get with the series and I think it delivered off its pure entertainment value.

Well Karen is 6 feet or 183 cm tall irl. So I'm assuming that shes, at a minimum, 9-10 inches taller than Elsa.

LLENN recognizes it as Schubert's Erlkoenig, but Schubert actually only adapted Goethe's poem of the same name to music

Hearing it suddenly was quite a shock to me since since the last time I heard it was memorizing it back in high school.

That one will leave a hell of a hickey.

Still, how does Karen go for that in VR and then go completely dippy when she gets a tongue kiss?

And continuing the show's trend of comedic inversions, the wild and sexy Pito turns out to be the child-like Elsa. But seriously, how old is she supposed to be? She looks like she could be part of the Gymnastics Club, and yet Goushi remarks that she goes through men and women without abandon. And I feel as though Fat!Goushi should've been on some kind of list.

Although, to be honest... I'm actually kind of curious to see exactly how Elsa and Goushi's first night together went down...

But damn, LLENN just went straight for the jugular in that fight; I like it when she goes total psycho (another comedic inversion). And then T-S swoops in to pick of the survivors. I'm a little disappointed we didn't get a shot of some kind of GGONews headline declaring T-S the most hated squad in the game.


Overall, I enjoyed this show way more than I was expecting. I actually really liked the show's casual tone; it was just about people playing a game. It was very fun.

That would have been nice to know since they did set of something of a timeline with M. To be fair, though, idols do tend to be played very young in Japan such that they're still wearing school uniforms and what have you into their 30s. And the cute childlike facade just sort of goes along with the appearance in many cases.

I loved how the crowd boo'd T-S for their win. phht, you win how you can and if they aint cheating then its all fair.

God dang I hate it when they dont subtitle the songs in the show, she could of been singing blah blah blah for all I cared and it would have the same effect.

How does LLENN reconize some random german...song? rhyme? How the hell should I know. Are we supposd to reconize it?

Miyu's (Fukajirou) reactions were amazing at the end. Loved her as a character. (Officer!)
