Yeah~, I'm hoping that it's not unfounded, but those 16 seconds filled me with a lot of hope that the 2 hours isn't going to be filled with recaps like we've been told. Definitely wasn't expecting there to be combat, so quite excited to see what they've come up with.


I fully expect this to be a glorified recap episode. If it's anything different I'd be surprised. Not expecting much though. Still though I'll be watching. Thanks CR

Heh, I thought so too. I envisioned that it would have those.. vague flashback things that then go on to add scenes that were missed out. Could still be the case, but that's why I'm being hopeful!

But I can confidently identify the two newcomers - one of which I was definitely not expecting. I wasn't expecting to see Agil or Klein either, so I guess I set my expectations really low.. better than being too high though.

That being said, I never thought that it was going to be just full recaps, always believed that this episode would be the anime's bridge into the next season. There is a bunch of evidence that would definitely suggest that would be the case and now some of that is confirmed by that trailer.

All SAO girls were boring.

Asada Shinon is the only interesting character but too bad, she didn`t make her appearance on anime.

Have faith that this'll bring season 2. The anime currently can't - lore wise - go into GGO.

I am concerned that I am going to be disappointed in this OVA.... Mostly from what I have gleaned in my small bits of writing and info that I have read gives it the feel it will be one of those cheery spinoff stories that will utterly detract from the emotion and writing that the first 13 ep. and end of the second half posessed.

What did you read that made you feel that way?

Also, content-wise, what were you expecting from this episode?

1) Love this show and can't wait for this special airing.

2) Another thing I love about this show is that it follows its original written novel WELL. In my opinion, for individuals with opinions about how arc 2 was slow or failed, should also take into consideration that this series, in retrospect of its 25 episodes, executed all aspects of its story, from animation to content, with beauty and excellence.

Anyways:

Hrm, cannot remember the details specifically of what I read. But it made it seem a bit trivial. I know there are people who prefer not to read synopsis, so will put it in spoiler form.



In terms of content, I am not sure what to expect actually and that is why my brain is gnawing at me. I felt the series really finished up quite well. The only hole I know where more story can be is
. I have not had the fortune of being able to read the original light novels or the manga about it. The first novel is supposed to be out in english next spring though.

I only actually finished watching the anime a few weeks ago since it was one of those ones I put off. If there was a continuation, I would hope one of these would be the content. In my research into the story's continuation, there was nothing that seems to hint at it having the story that it is being set up to be. But if it leads into the next portion of the original story, I will be on edge of my seat. For a two hour special, I really hope that is what it is for. To lead into the next storyline.

I like all sorts of genres myself. I have no doubts it will be a quality piece. But my concern is will it match the atmosphere of the anime series to date? How does it match the original story? I think a prime example of how this can ruin my enjoyment of a series is Naruto. Once more, summarized in spoilers.

I agree with you, but the timing doesn't add up.



@Vaporisor - Whilst my spoiler tag doesn't really contain spoilers or deep insight to the continuation, only names, I do think that it answers the things that you're wondering.

The continuation of the SAO story would be to go into the Phantom Bullet arc. Unless they made up for it in episodes other than something like the Extra Edition, the anime going into Phantom Bullet would make no sense to anyone that hasn't read the Light Novels.

On my phone at the moment, but I can go into more detail when I get home if you want.


No need for more detail, I appreciate the insight! Thank you very much

It is mostly the feel of the extra that I am wondering about. Two hours is quite alot of content for just a wrap up/side story so who knows what they might reveal? With mind overthinking, this is probably a good way to test doing more seasons and how all to expand the SAO market. Little bit of everything, get fan feedback. The anime did sort of cover two different genres with it's split. Well, in a couple weeks, we will know for certain!

No worries!

Yeah, I agree with your comment about the length. I can kinda imagine what they're going to do with the two new characters, but other than the beach/pool, no idea what else they could have in store for us. Oh well, ho hum. So the wait continues~

I wouldn't be surprised if GGO will be announced in the future. How long is the extra again? 1 hour?

My daughter likes this show and will be excited, but the swimsuits make me nervous. Watching the last bit of SAO with a 12 year old was more than a little awkward. I hope that there isn't an evil octopus or something similar to "develop the plot." I have a feeling I should screen this in advance.
