I'm interested in how people think the anime will pace the content of the light novels. Because it's discussing the novels, there are light spoilers. I tried to be vague, so that I wouldn't spoil exactly what happens; but I do give away the timing of things such big fights.



I think they will go all out and go into Volume 2 of the light novel.


Hmm... You're probably right.

Dark Souls is an MMO? News to me


It's not an MMO in the style of Warcraft or whatever, but it's online features let you party with other players for help almost as soon as the game gets going, and a few hours later you'll be fighting hostile players whether you want to or not. The only way to not play online, with every other player, is to disconnect your console from the internet.


I won't say for DDO as I haven't tried that


Traps are a major feature in DDO, to the point that (in some dungeons) a single misstep can kill your tankiest fighter.

Episode 4


Another side story.

Well, it focuses on the tamer Silicia and her character in this episode made me lol a few times; such an innocent little cookie

Also, it does seem that the theory of
Well, the story does seem to be quite fast paced with Kirito already gaining quite the experience. Anyways, hope next episode will be something interesting to talk about.

Cute, funny, moving episode. Don't want to spoil people right away but will have good fun with some screen caps from that one!

Touching episode at the end too. Well done.

What will suck for Kirito is when the nerf bat is dropped on the battle healing skill due to player complaints and bug reports. Then his battle skill will probably only heal 30 hp every 10 seconds.

That's the whole reason they got trapped in the game, the creator didn't want to deal with people complaining on the game forums about balance issues.

Too bad the token loli will not appear for a very very long time. Being a side-character sure sucks.

I don't like how SAO doesn't follow a concrete story flow. I feel like we're moving along random fragments in time. It's still in chronological order but you're left questioning what's in between. Regardless with that flaw, they delivered another good episode. There's so much issues in the gaming world that was never even aware of. I'm glad it's brought into light and discussed in passing. I hope we'll see some of the side characters again in the future.

This is a very strange thing to say, coming from me, but watching this, I'm getting a very strong, uh, I guess you'd call it an Uncanny Valley reaction.
I'm not sure this is the right way to say it, but there's just something very off about how they act, and it gives me the shivers.

The Creator bothers me too, though to be fair that's probably the point.
It's just that for all his talk of this being a new world, I get a Jerkass Railroading DM vibe from him. I also get the feeling that any form of creativity will probably be punished with Rocks Falling, Everyone Dying.
Or worse, the final floor is the Tomb of Horrors. And I don't think the herd of cattle trick is going to work here, though.

Also, given their information blackout, I have to wonder what the perceived difference is between being defeated, booted out of the game, and dying, and being defeated, booted out of the game, and living is?

Continuing in that vein,
"Remember how I said I'd let you live if you reached Floor 100?"
"That's right, you did."
"I lied."
"AAAAAAAAHHHHH!"

Or,
"What happened to Kirito?"
"I let him go."

well try reading the light novel, then you would feel it even more.. thats just how the story is.. you dont need to know about all the things in between, its implemented that they are fighting their way towards the upper floors, and the side stories shown is just something out of the normal.. i never really considered the flow of the story to be off, i consider it a nice way to write a story, all you need to know is told etc etc.
