Did romance well? LOL this series was just a 17 year old screaming and beating everything with no training. There was some good parts but damn. What a dissapointment.

but they can atleast redeem themselves. but apparently asuna is taken out of the picture from what i hear. maybe thats why they decided to end it. but yea im in love with the SAO world. would really love to own and spend 200+ hours on the game. and if its becomes an MMO than it better live up to the standards. to bad bandai ending its us branches, so won't be expecting SAO to be in the US anytime soon unless something big happens.

anyways yea good episode, epic but didn't feel some part were as effective as it could be.

and as a movie, they could turn any arc into a movie of any anime and still be successful but i'd rather have a long series than a short movie.



It might not be SAO but it have the same features and even more plus it did them in 1996 a mmo called ultima online


yea but like i said it needs to live up to sao standards, and the game does not. runescape does a better job. and i haven't touched that in a while.

Im going to be honest, i cried. this was probably the most amazing anime series I've ever watched. I mean what they did with Sugu after the SAO thing. Wow. I would definitely rank it up there with the best (Macross Plus being my favorite)

I would want them to continue with gun gale online arc, but then again they had such a nice ending on ALO. Well i guess we can wait and see.

GGO was by far my favorite light novel, but while I am looking forward to an anime adaptation (here's hoping), I think the one that they could really do a great job with is Mother's Rosario.

What I mean was, they tried to build it up over the series and unlike in most anime where at the very end of the series two characters just hookup and they basically just end it there, even though they never really expressed feelings before that. In this series they actually try to work on it instead of just making it a given in the final episode.

Yeah, I also hope they do the GGO arc as well. I thought that it was pretty good!

I also heard that GGO was a well made LN. I haven't read the material yet but some comments I've read seems to suggest so. Otherwise, the finale was meh for me.

I can attest to the light novels being absolutely excellent. Ultimately, Sword At Online is about a game or series of games, but a lot of that is lost during the anime. The light novels however are written in the first person perspective (usually Kirito), so we get the benefit of a lot of his internal explanations.

I am in no way disparaging the Anime. Seeing it animated was and still is amazing. That being said I am incredibly excited for Sword Art Online: Progressive. These new light novels detail more of Kirito's early adventures in Aincrad, and for better or for worse, retcon Asuna into being a more important role earlier in the game.

So yeah.. Long story short, if you are like me and can't possibly wait for more SAO, READ THE LIGHT NOVELS!

On topic: The finale followed the light novels almost to the letter. Which was perfect, especially since it's not an ending so far as the light novels are concerned. Still.. No more Sugu! YAY!

It was a good finale. For all of the series' ups and downs in quality, this was a great way to end it. While I would've liked a little more between Kirito and Asuna, I really liked that they took the time to showcase how all of Kirito's previous allies are getting on, and the reunion party/final scene were really touching in that respect.

It's open for a second series, but I feel that the final episode didn't really leave anything unanswered that begs for a continuation. If someone didn't know about the books, I'm sure they'd think this was just the end, period. I can see them doing a continuation due to the show's popularity, but I can be content with this if there's not one.
