It’s been two weeks since we checked into the Hype Machine for Sword Art Online and we have a lot to talk about. Before we get into Yui or discuss the terrible CG, lets see what the Twitterverse has been thinking for these past two weeks! Should be insightful I suppose?
I wonder if they will make a volume 11… Chances are they are going to milk this franchise for what its worth. Or they’re going to milk Asuna for what she’s worth. That was really dirty… Sorry.
@ToastCrust: Whereas when you die in #SAO you DIE FOR REAL, getting married in SAO doesn’t mean you are married for real.
It’s double standards like these that are ruining society… How could they let this sand!
@ToastCrust: In conclusion, #SAO is an emotional and incredibly moving work. I yelled, I cried. And w/ help of doujinshi, I came too.
I am happy for your success. May the tissue be with you!
@thebluecorsair: This seems silly yet cool. I wonder if something like this will exist one day. Curious why it’s called Sword Art Online though.. #SAO
Because Martial Art Online would be too cliche. Sword Arts on the other hand are hipster enough to create a cult following. You don’t really wanna trap anyone useful inside a videogame for the sake of society.
What the hell! Asuna is doing porn now… She’s moving up incredibly quick in the industry!
@SakuyaFM: NO, DAMMIT. “D’awww” is not intense enough to describe #SAO EP12.
How intense is “D’awww” to begin with?
@Krusiv: I set my expectations for #SAO way too high lol. I was expecting a grueling struggle to survive but instead the MC is mr.perfect in-game.
C’mon a anti-social jerk has to be good at something right? Picking up girls virtually is hardly something to be proud of.
Here’s a tissue. If you read a doujin you can put it to work again…
I have no words at how desperate she sounds…
I can say right now that Yui stole the hearts of millions. Her child-like charm and disappearing tears were just enough to make your heart melt. I understand that emotions are quite exaggerated when you have been stuck in a videogame for about two years but I don’t think that sort of attachment can develop in a few days. Sure she was kawaii as hell, but she was sleeping for the greater part of that time. Also where did Kirito get his hacking skills from? Seemed a bit too convenient for me.
The follow up was a great return to form. Sure emotions ran high, but wouldn’t yours if your life was on the line. The stakes are higher this time, and the cost is the loss of more high level players. The less there are, the lower the chances are of clearing the game. While the CG in this episode was a bit subpar, the action was still excellent. I love how Sword Art Online can switch gears at the drop of a hat. It makes this show the engaging experience that it is. There is a little bit for everyone. For any fan that was getting bored of the cheesy romance, sink your teeth right in and enjoy the carnage.
