1600+ posts in, this does seem like a good opportunity to make a new thread...


I already asked about that. As of now this and the other 3-4 SAO threads.. (and others that start because people just don't know how to read...) will serve as anticipation threads. Until season 2 is actually aired it makes no sense right now to create an official discussion thread on an anime that hasn't even aired yet. As of now people are already ruining the next arc by posting spoilers like crazy.

Seems weird not to have an official anticipation thread leading into the series.

But whatever. Words from on high and all that.


Well the mods are really nice I reported a post and had a very nice discussion about the SAO thread in general (especially when this thread was commandeered for a 2 season thread which I've never heard of before on CR.. ). I personally would prefer 2 different threads especially given the length and rage hate from the previous season. Maybe talk to a mod (using the report) and ask if it can be split? Maybe if enough people express their desire to have an official GGO thread and merge all the discussion into that one thread it might catch on?

Thanks for the info! That is kind of a bummer for me. I was looking for more Asuna + Crew.

Kirito is a woman now?


Why yes. Kirito realized that by changing his gender, he would be able to generate more fans WITHOUT changing his character/personality!

I mean, he had a choice between becoming a hot babe, or working out every day until he had Yaoi-fanfic level muscles.

Unfortunately, both options are equally erotic fanservice and Kirito is now screwed.
On the bright side, he's now a more interesting character....hopefully.

I have high hopes for Gun Gale here. SAO always felt like a 1-shot Story type of show, and I do NOT believe it can produce a good sequel. But I've been proven wrong before, Hopefully the source material has improved with experience and that Gun Gale Online is here FOR AN ENTIRE SEASON.

Just give me Sword and Gun fights, that's all I want. Villain of the week, Mortal Kombat Arcade style rankings...whatever, I DON'T KNOW OR CARE. JUST FIGHT SOMETHING IN EVERY EPISODE!

Like BTOOOM!! They're doing it right, follow THAT example and you'll do fine.

Someone has asked me this question, I do agree but before I give my "blessing" I'd like to aks my fellow moderators how they feel about it.
I will get back to you later.

Let me clarify this, his avatar is NOT officially a Female gender, HOWEVER he has a male model that is very close to female in appearance and is considered very rare.

I was just curious. I was hoping to see more of Asuna. I just thought maybe that would go over a little weird that Kirito being a girl character running around with Asuna.

@Kiritard

Ok, but if that is his picture in the promo, he has a breast plate on his uniform. Or should I say it appears like that from the angle.

Kirito is the only existing character in GGO, but there's a real-world side of the story that keeps everyone else involved. I'm not really sure how they'll balance it in the anime, but it's not like we won't see them for an entire season.

(I don't think I dropped any spoilers with that...)

I don't think you did. Thanks for the info! I can relax now. I like the crew.

I think overall I found SAO to be ok and I fell into the camp of people who found the show meh, after watching extra edition all I want is for something new and from the sounds of what happens in GGO I am super excited to watch series 2, I just hope that at the half way point, like in series 1, we go into the progressive arc instead of 25 episodes of GGO.

I actually wouldn't mind 25 episodes of GGO. I haven't read the LN but 25 eps would really allow them to flesh the characters and story out more if done right.

I think that sounds fine, just after reading basic summaries (So I may be wrong) it doesn't seem like a plot that could last 25 episodes, but as you said if great development occurred I wouldn't mind 25 episodes!

Well, we confused ourselves a little sorting out this whole "where does GGO discussion go" thing, but a decision has been reached. Thanks to everyone who provided feedback here or in PMs.

There is precedent both for having separate threads for separate seasons and for having a single thread for more than one season. However, it does indeed seem that excitement about the new season of SAO is sufficient that a separate thread makes sense.

I'm sure no one will mind if you let a little GGO excitement leak out in this thread too, but for conversation dedicated to anticipation of Gun Gale Online we've reopened one of the very popular threads that was started shortly after the new season was confirmed.

Keep talking here: /forumtopic-833705/gun-gale-online-ggo-anticipation
