I was going to use Hoe. Trick felt a bit more tame (in terms of how the word sounds). SAO is a delicate flower.


Just go Kirito on it and make it yours by your badass OP sword skills

So is SAO II any good? Or to be specific, better than the ALO arc from the original series? I loved the actual SAO arc but it just kind of went "eeh" in the ALO arc for me...

If you are wondering if Kirito and Asuna are Canon, they are all the way. The SAO 2nd arc is just dramatic, basically some personal issues are involved.

As for SAO2, hmm, I'm not per say super glad about the action, since it's very little, it's more like talking and talking. But I did like Sinon, perhaps she felt more realistic as person IMO or relatable. Sinon would be my 2nd fave girl among SAO, of course Asuna tops the 1st.

SAO2, 2nd arc seems to go back to being the fantasy MMO, since they went back to ALO, but it's only been 3 episodes...

Don't expect something like Aincrad, cause that's not happening.

Also, did anyone else think that the excaliber mini-arc was better than all of GGO? Cause I sure did.

Excalibur is a full arc, but a small one and I think it's the best so far (haven't seen the latest episode)

I called it a mini-arc because it was only 3 episodes instead of the usual 12-14.

Seriously? I couldn't wait for the Excaliber arc to end. I'm glad we're getting to Mother's Rosario now. Different strokes for different folks, I guess....

That statement is, IMHO, the biggest reason people dislike SAO. It changes tone so much.

Having played a ton of different MMO's, it doesn't bother me much... in fact it seems quite realistic to me.

Same here, but that's how people view it.

That's a very good point. SAO does have quality, but it's very inconsistent with said quality, as well as tone and pacing. I watch it for the parts I do like, but there's quite a bit I don't particularly care for. That's why I watch it more casually than some other shows.

I prefer SAO II to the entirety of the first SAO anime.

While the first arc of SAO was alright(certainly better than the second arc), it's pacing was too fast for me to care about the characters. They didn't get enough time to be developed enough for me to care what happened to them.

The movie is still up on CR, and it's non-canon. I haven't watch it yet; I just don't want to waste my time with a fanservice movie.

It's not really non-canon, it's basically just like a full catch-up of the first season, with a little bit of the girls trying to teach Sugu to swim.
