Hey guys,

Just watched the end of the world episode of SAO and I was very confused. How comes Kirito didn't die and how did he manage to wake up in the real world again. It seemed to me that the game glitched and let him live a little longer but he still died and was in heaven awaiting deletion. Also how did Asuna die, Kirito said before the fight that he didn't want her to be able to die if he lost.

If any of these questions are answered in later episodes do not disclose what they are since I am only on ep 15 now.

Should have stopped watching after episode 4 but to each their own.

There is a small grace period between character death and real death.

That is how the resurrection items were able to work.

The game ended within that grace period.

If you want the best possible experience watching Sao, do not continue after ep 14.

It's the best explanation for it, and it certainly makes sense.

Or you can ignore all these people, continue watching after episode 14, and make your own judgement.

BTW, The ALO arc is not bad. It's the weakest in the series between the two seasons, but it's nowhere near as bad as people whine it is.
