Really, not much is happening in the episodes, but somehow it's just so gripping and epic.

There was a comment on the the first ep that said this idea was played of too much. I haven't seen many things like this (besides Spy Kids 3), but I believe this is the best way to do it.

Enjoying this series quite a bit but after Episode 2 I have to say, as a long time D&Der


I hate Kobolds so freaking much......nasty vicious evil sneaky little buggers.

Episode 2.

Good episode, not as great as the pilot since I didn't like the MC's sudden change of heart.
I mean, he was so wimpy then he becomes this beater bad guy?

I still enjoyed it though. The girl MC is really cute!
I hope they team up again in the futureeeeee.

Is too video gamey for me perhaps they will expand the concept out a bit I hope. Was sad when he dissolved his little two player guild. If I keep watching then I hope they get back together.

animation on the action sequence was awesome.

I feel bad for that other beta tester, I guess that one didnt know that weapon?
I am not sure why he switched personality and lying but he is a loner afterall

Not bad episode.

The seiyuu for Kirito, Mastunaga , sounds very similar to Okamoto

Good job overall. They captured the feeling of a raid pretty well. I like the new character, Asuna. She's obviously important so I'm looking forward to seeing more of her.



Looking forward to ep 3!

The story is brutally honest about the gaming trends and cancers like traps(ep. 1) and noobs(ep. 2). I bet things get darker on later episode.

One question though.... Why can't they just use EMP to destroy the Nerve Gear? I'm pretty sure that it is not design to withstand strong EMP.

Well, you'd have to put the people in a shielded room and then hit them with the pulse for that to work.

But, I'd be worried about fail-safes. A maniac that puts together a plan to trap 10,000 people in a game would probably have a number of ways to prevent the authorities from rescuing the players. There's no guarantee the headset isn't hardened against an EMP pulse, or that there would be a trigger to fry the player anyway if the system starts to fail.

I don't fault Kirito for going solo at the end. It's frustrating when people panic in these shows and look to blame someone rather than find a solution for a problem. One idiot and half the fighters were swayed that beta testers were evil. Kirito wasn't wrong in his assessment that the final release's players were better off than the beta testers, but he was wrong to completely alienate everyone. I'm not sure it could have ended any other way.

So after watching the first 2 episodes, I bolted over to Baka-Tsuki and powered through Volume 1 of the novel. What a great story. Now I'm really excited to see what I read adapted into anime form!

Seriously, .hack doesn't even begin to hold a candle to SAO. As bad as it sounds to get trapped in a virtual reality game... I wouldn't mind.... lmao

On a different note, I am completely obsessed with this series now. I went out and bought a few RPGs for the 360 and played them and am now looking at new online/computer ones solely because of this series.

Pleasantly surprised by the quality of the first episode. I just finished Steins;Gate a few weeks back, so I hopped on here out of curiosity and now I'm pretty pumped for the next episode. I like how this first episode doesn't really waste any time, it gets right into the (apparent) premise. I'm also excited to see Yuki Kajiura on for the music, loved her stuff in Madoka Magica (and funnily enough, she composed the music for .//hack sign too back in the day)
