….she’s such a good girl. Telling ‘onii-chan’ not to give up on his love even though you’re in love with him too ;_;
So why is Kirito in the dumps? Because of a certain guy…
Yeah, the slimiest motherfucker in the SAO series so far, Sugou Nobuyuki. Hell, this guy makes those Laughing Coffin dudes look like proper, upstanding citizens.
Comes with A-class scumbag villain Takehito Koyasu voice too!
… just look at that bastard’s smug face. I really feel sorry we haven’t invented a method to punch fictional characters in face yet. That’s why ALO is still my favourite arc yet in SAO.
So, ALO arc kicks off pretty much exactly how I guessed it to be, right down to the cliffhanger ending of Egil’s email to Kirito. Pretty much covered the prologue and 3/4′s of the first chapter of Fairy Dance, so with this pacing gives me hope that A-1′s gonna do the right thing and properly let Fairy Dance play out as it really deserves the rest of the cour for it.
One thing I noticed about this episode is how well the BGM is, most noticeably during all the emotional moments. Kajiura is really going all out here heh. The new OP and ED are also much better than I expected them to be, with awesome animation accompanying both of them. Especially the OP.
mmmm dat fairy queen Asuna~
Next week, are you ready for fairies?! And Suguha/Lyfa~
SAO end card this week by Yasu-sensei HNNNNGGHHHHH Asunaaaaa
P.S. Don’t worry, I’m still in the Asuna camp. Suguha is a very good imouto though!
