hm episode 15 was great, but once again was really hyped up for the battles but was than disappointed like usual. this anime gatta live up to the battle scene atleast once per arc. the best one so far was the twin blade, but it wasn't that great.


Ep. 15 was a transition episode, I expected 15 to not be anything in particularly spectacular, and for the most part I was right. Setting up the Main Antagonist for the Arc, the Twist, and overarching goal for the next ten episodes in one seamless episode was really a smooth idea, just means we can look forward to more action (spoiler op. aside), for the rest of the season.

i was talking about the series in general. i understand that much, im sorry if i made it look like i said that this battle scene wasn't to par with the rest, because its one of the better ones in the series. i hate how the series does really well in hyping you up for the battle sequences but fail to deliver. they try to cram in movements to make it seem like its moving at a faster pace.

the twin blade reveal was the best, because it was twin blade, but the battle itself was poor. though i really like how they did the animation when he changed to an underhand grip.

but other than that the only good battle scene was when he broke that one guys sword. i just want some hardcore battles or atleast a glimpse of it in some form. i understand its not that kinda anime, but the way they set up for the battle just seems that way.

Read the light novels a while back before the anime came out and if the anime's even as good as the books it will be the greatest ever in my opinion.

Asuna all the way!!!!

I'm kinda surprised at the number of people who haven't read the novels, there's a lot of people who are surprised to see that there are Novels that serve as the source material for the series ^^;

Yeah I found that most anime has had a light novel before the makikng of the anime all my friends were shock when I thold them about the light novel. In my opinion the novel is always the best so I either read it first or last depending on if I find out there a novel before or when Im watching a series.

If you want all the information for Sword Art Online, you need to read the Manga, and the Light novels, in addition to watching the Anime, there's bits and pieces of information that are mutually exclusive in each medium, but are canon overall in the plot.

In Kirito's harem, no girl is safe.




This anime is getting worse by the episode. So many cheap plot tools and whatnot. The whole "every girl in the world is in love with Kirito" feels just dumb. Can't there be like at least 1 girl that isn't all infatuated with him...?

Ah well, at least episode 15 introduces someone truly worthy of loathing. What a creep he was. Asuna's parents ain't much better... Nor are they in the light novels, if anything they are worse there. Horrible parents who basically abandon their daughter and ignore her wishes. Then again, I guess it is just the author's cheap way of making us cheer for the "best animu couple evah!!11" and give the idea that "the entire world" is against them.

That's probably the case.



But the ramp up of the relationship in the first fourteen episodes isn't so bad, and two years time? That's a fair amount of time to get to know someone. You have to give the author points for their approach to the romantic sub-plots. The bonus here is that they don't overtake the plot, so it doesn't flanderize anyone, until we get to the ALO Arc.

To be honest, without the Volumes this anime would have been a flop. I mean really: skipped fights, plot holes everywhere, lack of characterization. If you're not a manga reader, you are screwed.

I grew up in a christian country and that is a big no no, I can never fall inlove that way with a man that I consider my brother and a blood relative and besides that is not good for genetics. Which is probably why there are also weird genes coming from japan.

You may want to crack open your Bible (specifically to Leviticus 18) and try and find any prohibition of cousins marrying; you won't find one.

Any prohibitions or disapproval of marriage between cousins in Christian cultures is strictly a secular creation.

FYI, the odds of any birth defects from a union between first cousins is about the same as for any woman over age 40 giving birth. I wonder how many people would push to make that illegal.

I didnt read the LN until after the SAO arc was finished, I was hooked, I thought the pace was exceptional and it fits for the kind of anime it is. I dont think making the first arc super long covering everything they did from Floor1-End would have been smart anyways.

Its pace is quite unorthodox but in my opinion, the anime was executed well. It held my interest although I havn't read the LN until the first arc ended. With the holes and gaps within the SAO arc story allows (in my opinion makes the anime more interesting) viewers to think outside the box on what happened in between the time lapses. After reading the LN, it was refreshing to see all the missing detail that was left out. I do wish battles werent skipped though =_=.

i would say there are plenty of girls that aint "all infatuated with him" but considering you only been introduced to around 4 girls then it aint that weird that they all fall for the main character.. thats one way of building up a character by showing how he infatuate other people around him : )
