I had a revelation while watching the episode yesterday and I forgot to mention it in my post.


Kirito likes wearing black clothes.
He likes using BIG SWORDS.
He prefers to be alone.

Somehow that seems somewhat familiar to me.



Makes me wonder if that was the source of inspiration for when the author made Kirito, and then everything just went south when the author went for originality.

Oh for Gods sake, I wasnt really telling anyone to shut up, especially not ChronicSmile... I wasnt even thinking of her post when I wrote what I did. I wasnt even telling anyone to shut up... just to stop whining about it every chance they get.

If someone has content to their message besides the complaint thats fine, but just complaining about how much they hate suguha everytime her name is brought up gets annoying and old, really fast.

Since he relies so much on plot-armour, Gary Stue powers and Deus Ex Machina.

Oh and the Harem Lure, which makes every female character with a name fall for Kirito.

Plus I feel like Kirito has so much potential, abilities he can use and he just squanders those abilities in favour of battle rage. In SAO it wasn't that noticeable, since he relied on his sword no matter what there. But in ALfheim he has so many illusions he can cast, to help him in combat - his race is even the weakest in combat! And yet, he time and time again prefers brutal attacks & Gary Stueing over finesse and smart manoeuvres.

Kirito is not a smart character by any means. He is just hard-working and stubborn with a touch of superior moral compass. He doesn't know his limits, nor does he know how to push his limits properly. In comparison of other characters who battle regularly, he appears as an infant.

Don't get me wrong SAO is freakin awesome but it is overrated just think is it sword art online or ALO now thats not the problem its just like some guy from another forum said he runs in to an impossible situation and what happens derpity derp derp he comes in with his magical powers and BAM he defeats the enemy sorry but many episodes back he loses all his fricken health and what magic derping powers shoe up and he kills the guy. Another reason saying that it is overrated is the fact that he is so serious about dying in alo i mean come on in SAO maybe he could be freaking out about dying but in ALO the worst thing that can happen is that he'll respawn at the nearest town. Im not a fan of the whole cousin on cousin thing going on there along with that point every freakin girl in that series falls in love with the guuuuuy sorry ladys I dont get why they would fall in love with a battle crazed maniac. CAPS LOCK FOR EMPHASIS SURE SWORD ART ONLINE IS A GREAT SHOE BUT DON'T TURN IN TO A DIE HARD FAN AFTER THE FIRST COUPLE EPISODES LIKE THE SHOW BUT DON'T CRY IF IT STARTS GETTING SUCKY

I do hope they get another season, I mean it's not like there is a shortage of material to work with.
Only thing I could see wrong is that the two phantom bullet ones that came next are in my opinion the weakest of the LN's.
What I mean is that it would be a shame if they did an anime for phantom bullet only to have it die before reaching Mothers Rosario and the Alicization books which are so much better.

You certainly aren't wrong, but I look at a lot of what's mentioned in a different light. For one, you see it all the time today in anime where the lead character pulls out trump card after trump card, so while I don't like it a whole heck of a lot either, it's everywhere, something to deal with I guess. I did like this most recent episode for
but yeah, part of it.

Regarding the emphasis on death, I think it's necessary to maintain in the series. It was such an integral part of the first game, and you also have to think in the grand scheme of thing in the ALO arc:



With the girls, I agree that's a bit overboard. In a socially awkward society like a video game, though, and you have a guy like Kirito there that is in the game's glossary under "Badass" (more than likely ), yeah, not the most surprising thing in the anime.

I haven't been too thrilled in the show since the first arc finished in Ep 14, but it's still a fantastic anime I think. I've very much enjoyed it with my friends, and I hope there's more past 25.

But he abandoned Klein, failed to protect Sachi/Moonlight Black Cats Guild, was afraid of potentially fighting three members of Laughing Coffin during Ep 6, and lost to Heathcliff during their first duel.

Rosalia and Yulier didn't fall for Kirito.

He said that he wasn't good at the skill system (memorizing english) in ALO. And only used illusion against the Salamander Mage group when Yui suggested it. Plus, during his fight against General Eugene, he managed to turn it around using a smokescreen spell to get Leefa's blade and attack from a blind spot, suprising and neutralizing his attack and dealing a combo.

@cartoonchris: Except you also get a harsh penalty which would explain why Kagemune decided not to risk dying when Kirito offered him a chance to run.
He calmed Sachi down and promised to protect her, helped Silica revive the only true friend she had in-game, Saved Lisbeth's life when she fell in the hole, help reunite Yulier with her lover, Thinker (with the help of Asuna and Yui), and prevented the Slyphs and Cait Sith from becoming underpowered (thus undesirable with players leaving for other races).

And with the amount of DVD/Blu-ray sales, it would be idiotic for them not to take advantage of a cash cow by making more.
