Only at the very end did I notice the two birds had the same color scheme as Asuna and Kirito... and her plea at the end, heart wrenching and hopeful at the same time.

I love how the bar's color transition went from orange to dark green, classic mood setting. Quite a few revelations here and there, now we all know Lyfa is Suguha, Recon is her classmate and Oberon is Sugou. We also have a proper look at the AmuSphere; The successor of NerveGear for ALfheim Online. As far as I know the AmuSphere was never shown properly in the novels so in my head I was just thinking it was another NerveGear but looks white and neat. A huge improvement jump on the NerveGear design lol, what does everyone think?

it never did show it in the novels, but I was getting conflicting impressions of what it looked like. All I remember is it being described as two rings, but I guess looking at it animated kinda fits that description just where the lens is throws it off IMO

I dunno if this is in bad taste... but, at least nervegear protects your head in an earthquake.

I enjoy how Leafa and Kirito having a drink reminded me of when Asuna was taking Kirito for dinner. I was really hoping for an awestruck crowd questioning why he was there.

Another good episode, was hoping for a little more action but I am happy it expanded Asuna's side a bit more. I want next episode to expand quicker

Huh, I didn't even notice the bird connection until you guys suggested that.

Anyway, good episode that was filled with some essential world building for future episodes. I really loved Suguo's monologe at the end. It all felt like something a bond villian would say. Grandiose stuff. Oh and it was nice to see Asuna again.

I didn't realize the bird connection either, I dig that!
I think the only anime char I've ever hated more than this dude so far at such an early point in an anime was

I love the color scheme of the birds was a nice touch.
This episode was pretty spot on with the light novel hope they keep it going this way.

It was a good episode, and I especially liked the scene at the end (albeit sad), but the first season progressed so quickly and now it feels like its slowed right down. I just want Asuna to know Kirito is coming to save her.

Also, I don't think I've ever hated a character as much as I hate Sugou. I hope he meets an unfortunate and painful end. Preferably something with fire or boiling oil

A bit of a mistranslation from UTW and CR subs which kinda ticks me off a bit, when Lyfa's name is not Lyfa anymore, its Leafa
