Well, it was a fun ride, but Yuuki is in a better place now. I’m glad she went peacefully and made peace with everything before going. It’s such a shame, I loved her character, but I guess that’s what happens when you steal Kirito’s best swordsman title from him. I thought it was a bit cheesy how Yuuki won based on time running out, they just can’t have Kirito losing fair and square!
We’re almost done with this season of SAO. I have to say, these last few episodes have actually made me enjoy the series more than I thought I would. Action and flashy scenes are nice, but it’s good to have some slower paced moments, especially with Asuna as the main focus. (P.S. Asuna was adorable as a kid)
All aboard the feels train! Yuuki’s condition is revealed to be terminal and there’s no chance of recovery. Not even the almighty Kirito can magically cure her. I swear someone was cutting onions in the background, but overall, it was a touching episode.
We dive deeper into the Mother Rosario arc and I must say, I’m loving Asuna taking the lead. Honestly, how much character development can Kirito possibly go through, when he’s already the harem master and god of games? Now his previously neglected, first girl of his harem, gets the spotlight! Although, it wouldn’t be Sword Art Online without Kirito, so he does try to steal the spotlight at the end of the show! Anyways, enjoy the screencaps, I personally love Yuuki’s character design!
It’s been a while since we’ve had such a great fight scene! I missed seeing Asuna out in the front lines since she was once such a strong warrior. Zekken is also revealed to be a young girl, and not the intimidating soldier Asuna had previously thought of! Anyways, enough chit chat, enjoy some screenshots from Sword Art Online II Episode 19!
Kirito finally takes Asuna out on a date! After she departs, they go back to their weekly online meetings. Asuna can finally relive her dream from SAO, by owning that quiet little log cabin by the lake with Kirito. It’s almost as if her and Kirito were the parents, and all of these other girls are their children. Although… slightly disturbing children who all lust after Kirito…
Andddd we’re finally done! It feels like forever since I’ve watched Sword Art, but that’s mainly because we had a solid month of laid back episodes. First we had a recap, and then we had this Excalibur arc where there is no real antagonist. Either way, I’m glad that we’re finally going to begin moving forward, even though there aren’t too many episodes left. Oh, and Kirito should probably watch himself before one of his cheerleaders go full yandere…
We get some pretty sick fight scenes this episode. Kirito continues to tear things up with his ghetto rigged dual wielding technique. Poor Klein reveals his true desires to fall in love and meet the one. It probably doesn’t help that Kirito parades around with hoards of women at his beck and call. At least he can potentially find true love with this NPC!
