What a HORRIBLY BAD episode. Jesus christ...

It could have been 5 minutes long.

Drop the useless flashbacks and combine the two weapons to begin with. Jesus Christ... They didn't even need the "perfectly timed" Caith Siths & Sylphs who showed up. So bad.


AND I'M STILL NOT SEEING ANY ILLUSIONS FROM MR. SPRIGGAN

But that's okay, because he is Gary Stue with Final Fantasy COMBINE ATTACK/WEAPON POWER! WOO.... Not really.


I wonder, are there any bad clichés this anime haven't used yet?


And Recon still sounds like an 8 year old kid - and he is even more annoying.

Episode 23



Ya, I thought the flashbacks were meh. That confession @ ALO was sort of funny though, ha!

The fight was okay imo although I expected the reinforcements to come. That didn't come as a surprise to me at all except the part involving the "dark magic". LOL @ another cliffhanger. Oh well, going to wait till next week to see what's going to happen.

Uh, ya. The way they left off that episode pissed me off.
I felt like I was watching a painful rerun of dragon ball z. Nothing against Dbz, I actually love it. But the cliff hangers. :<
Ah, I guess ill see asuna next week.

The fight could have been a little bit more epic. But it's the thing I've been looking forward to for the whole ALO arc, so I had higher than normal expectations.

Still pretty sweet though. I liked this episode. It's pretty much how I imagined it would look from the novel.

Yeah and if they follow the novel right then ep 24 should probably be the best.

I just got sad realizing I watched episode 23 out of 25 today and realizing just two more episodes left. Please let there be a new season after.

Would you drop the 'Gary Stu' aspect already, considering as I understand its meaning its 'Mr. Perfect' or the person that has everything go his way. First guild Kirito joined being wiped out, final boss fight of first part where Asuna dies before Kirito, getting knocked back back by the shield Salamanders in the neutral village, and getting k.o.'d by the enemies in the tree all prove the opposite as they are not 'perfection' and nor is Kirito. As far as combat abilities go it was stated early in the newest arc that he was essentially a 'hacked character' with abilities that others may not have and he may not have ready knowledge of. He didn't merge the weapons, he dual wielded which guess what has been shown to be an actual ability in SAO-verse. I could care less about cliches or not as long as they story is good but if you like being so picky have your fun with nothing to watch as EVERY anime has some. Recon is what in his early to mid-teens? so makes since wouldn't per se have deepened voice and you know its not the first anime in history to have teen males sound young so feel free to drop that as well.


I actually like Recon x Sugu because of that fact that he isn't the usual tough guy and is more of an intellectual/loyal guy. Not to say Kirito is bad pairing but he's already got Asuna.


Side-note: The flashbacks are put of giving more story and depth so shouldn't mind them.

As far as I know and according to ANN , its 25 episode. It will finish the Alfheim arc . Episode 23 touched part of Chapter 8 and episode 24 will definitley the rest of Chapter 8, but man , its going to be one hell of an endi

I will drop the "Gary Stue" aspect once the anime drops it. i.e. Never.

The first guild deserved it. They entered a unknown secret room without taking any precautions and didn't listen to Kirito - It has nothing to with his overpowered abilities.

Asuna needed to "die" because Kirito was being a emotionally little twat during that fight, and her death gave him the extra Gary Stue power he needed to overcome the limits of the MMO.

Yes...? Anyone would get knocked back by a shield combination like that, they actually worked together - you know teamwork, a term almost foreign to Kirito.

Why are you even mentioning the enemies in tree? It was supposed to be impossible, and he attacked like a complete retard. He was meant to lose. That has nothing to do with his Gary Stue powers - OH and he didn't actually die, because he was revived and therefore LOST NOTHING but his pride.

Dual-wielded? Puh-lease... Look at the pictures below, there is a nice little detail there.




You know what the prerequisite for dual-wielding is? ONE weapon in EACH hand. Not clasping both weapons together and merging them. Because they were merged, you can't deny that. Look at how vastly different Sugu's weapon looks in Kirito's hand.


Just because someone is a Gary Stue doesn't mean that they won't suffer emotional setbacks.


The big problem with Recon is that he is the same age as Sugu, yet sounds like he is twice as young as her - i.e. 8 years. He acts like one too. "Maybe she will love me if I sacrifice myself for her kawaii-harem-lure-Kirito-chan!!"


I'm not going to drop anything. I've come this far and laughed at the horribly written parts so far, I have no intention of stopping. Nor can you stop me from writing my honest opinion about it.
