I feel like I should be keeping track of the dates better. They're showing them for a reason, I guess. :P
Yeah, I should be making note too.

I now like Kirito more because his class is essentially what I played in City of Heroes, a Regen Scrapper. They do solo well, actually.

Yeah, Kirito's awesome. He's what I wish I could be in an MMO, since I hate traveling in parties. XD

And now we introduce cyber homicide, among players



Also, I'm glad the game master didn't state outright that only a few are allowed to survive.  I would have had no interest then.  There is the possibility that everyone can win (it's just that survival of the fittest is their roadblock.)

Just caught up, so I guess I'm watching this show now!

I think I agree with the theory that People aren't actually dying, and that maybe time goes by much faster in-game. Maybe it's all some elaborate social experiment. The core idea of the show is pretty cool, and I like most of the characters so far. Can't say I'm very emotionally invested in it yet, though.

Complaints? The Opening is kinda weak and it's really dumb how they refer to Kirito as a 'beater'. It just sounds stupid. In fact, that whole scene at the end of Episode 2 where Kirito puts on his evil face and walks out on the party really rubbed me the wrong way. It was way over-dramatic.

But overall, I'm enjoying the show. Seems like it has a lot of potential, and to be fair we're only like 4 episodes in.

It'll get better when they get back to the main story. Last two weeks were side story stuff.

Kind of silly that Kirito was wanting to stab his hand with a weapon that KOs instantly.

I also want to hear his explanation as to why they should care about NPCs.  Either he's trying to keep down desensitization or they are in fact alive.

I'm having second thoughts on this show to be honest.

I get the feeling that whoever is killing people also has the ring of agility, which lets them escape the scene quickly. It would be insane if the person is a hacked NPC; players can't kill each other in towns, but that rule wasn't given to NPCs. Why the NPC would be killing people...I have no idea. Maybe something added by the maker to ruffle some more feathers?

Meh, I'm probably way off though. Nonetheless, it would be awesome.

Also, I fucking knew that chick was going to die as soon as she walked out of the crowd of people. XD

Yeah, Kirito's a weird kid.

I thought this episode was pretty good, though. It was nice to see more of Asuna.

I was thinking something with invisibility, but then they wouldn't have said anything about the NPCs. I think you're on to something there. Maybe there's a rule that says 'When you kill the NPCs then they can kill you'. Kinda like the Pigmen in Minecraft. They only attack when you do.

At first I figured the lady party member was the killer last episode, but then her getting stabbed in the back threw off my suspicions.  The answer was kind of half-and-half. 

A pretty decent end to the two-parter.

My suspicions were so off. XD I wasn't even close. Kind of disappointed that the "broken game" aspect wasn't introduced, but I still like the explanation. I'd like to see the hack/break thing happen sometime later, though. They did it pretty awesomely in the .hack series, though I guess doing something similar in this would kind of be copying...But meh, nothing's original these days.

Oh, and after Kirito and Asuna's little interaction today, I'm wondering if people can get down and dirty in the SAO world and...like...not feel like they're slapping a wall with the palm of their hand. I assume it's possible, since they can taste bread. This is where my brain goes at 3am.

Glad that little side story is wrapped up. Hopefully they can actually get on to some good stuff now.

Oh, and after Kirito and Asuna's little interaction today, I'm wondering if people can get down and dirty in the SAO world and...like...not feel like they're slapping a wall with the palm of their hand. I assume it's possible, since they can taste bread. This is where my brain goes at 3am.

That would be interesting, but I seriously doubt they'll actually explain it in the show. I think it's pretty safe to guess that those two are gonna get married in-game by the end of the series, though.

Hahah, yup. Probably. Though, they might play around with the idea for comedic purposes and have Asuna do a tsundere blush/uppercut or something.
