Wow. Just wow. First episode already and I’m seriously budgeting to get the blu-rays. I hope we do have an AotY candidate here, but this already won best opening episode of the season, not including Kokoro Connect
and Horizon II yet though… scratch that, Horizon and SAO tie for now.
Just seriously. A-1 Pictures took everything from the light novel and jazzed it up to 15. Little details matter and A-1 truly delivered on that part. Seriously. Like that login sequence.
Oh-ho, I see Klein in there. Guess that’s his guildmates too. Never really got to see them properly in the LN.
Is that you, Kirito?! ( ﾟ∀ﾟ)ｱﾊﾊ八八ﾉヽﾉヽﾉヽﾉ ＼ / ＼/ ＼
… oh god, he really has chuunibyou tastes.
I’ve been listening to this line so many times in the PV, but I still felt a real shiver when he said that because of the accompanying BGM. This scene really illustrated the greatness that is Yuki Kajiura for me.

oh you, Klein.
As I said, little details DO matter. This part was kinda glossed over in the LN using three lines or so, so I had to imagine the shock and outrage, but A-1 really put in effort to make it come alive. Awesome. Heck they even put in a little subplot thingy between two “role-players”…

Aw shit, it’s Lizbet! In her original look! Yeahhhhhhh!
>dat reaction face w
Yeah, thanks for ruining that farewell BGM www (oh noes the fujoshi baiiiiiit)
