The third chapter of Sword Art Online is upon us, so let’s jump right into the thick of things. Hype has been mellowing out a bit because the plot is being described as underwhelming. Considering the big budget behind this production I didn’t really expect it to take many risks, but what we have so far is a competent product.
@_raafagarcia: Sword Art Online AAAAAAAAAAAAAAaaaaah *u*
I don’t know if this person is scared of Sword Art Online, or did they just wet themselves. It’s important to make the distinction.
Hey, give the generics a break! They have a right to live too!
I think Kirito did the same thing. They still ended up dying. Noobs will be noobs I guess.
So I want to analyze this emoticons. ^O^ must be a man with a big mout. ^U^ must be a man with a big nose. Am I correct?
Then what? I want to know how it ends!
Remember what they say… A good offense is the best defense. I don’t know how that had anything to do with the above tweet.
Then you get hungry.
Asuna turns me on, but I don’t think we’re talking about the same thing.
Google Translate: Will have hidden something, you. Funny thing because. Usually not be able to have a shield What the biggest benefit of Sword. But you’ve never seen Kirito Toko has a shield. I …… # SwordArtOnline suspicious
That was the dirtiest comment I have ever translated. I felt dirty after reading this. Before posting this I was thinking about replacing some words, but that would ruin my journalistic credibility.
People still seem to polarized by this anime. Either you’re crazy about it or you hate it. Not that there’s anything wrong with that, I just don’t see how the content of this show so far could be so polarizing. It covers inoffensive topics and themes that generally anyone can relate to. Sure at times it could be a bit emotional, but you would be too if you were stuck in a video game.
In the second episode, Kirito had to deal with death within the context of idealism. Diabel died to become a martyr, a rallying point for those behind him to strive upwards to the top of the tower. Death in the third outing hits much closer to home. For our hero, it’s a much more personal journey this time, having to see those that put faith in him disappear. It’s an important step in the growth of the lead character that teaches him how to deal with the realities of the virtual world their in.
