TBH, I've always had a thing for cute blacksmith girls.

This seems like it would naturally extend to airship and engineer girls.

caught last week's and this week's eps about a day apart. The end of the PK story was awesome. There was really no way that anyone here could have figured it out. There was a rule set for that world that we didn't know yet.

I LOVED the bit at the end where Kirito essentially says that 'learning new things about the person you love is awesome'. I'm paraphrasing of course.

---> this bit



I like him more and more each week. He can be awkward, but he doesn't take shit and is incredibly clever. Want to hug him. <3

 Liz is cute and all but that ep felt rushed to me.

LIZ NNNNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO~

So fucking depressed right now....Liz is fucking amazing...I would gladly get caught in an MMORPG if I could make epic snuggles with her.

TBH, I've always had a thing for cute blacksmith girls.

YES YES YES YES YES. Airship engineer girls are some of my favourites.

I like him more and more each week. He can be awkward, but he doesn't take shit and is incredibly clever. Want to hug him. <3

Kirito's becoming one of my favourite characters in any show I've seen for...a while. And I totally understand his personality, and his awkwardness from not socializing that often.

I probably sounded crass about Liz. I did feel bad for her. I admit, I welled up a little bit.

This whole episode felt like skyrim

If it was me in kirito's shoes, both liz and I would have died because I would be too busy punching it with low armor.  #skyrim woes

That unrequited love stuff completely breaks me. Especially when the person is putting on a false guise of happiness and/or being the "sideline friend". Probably gets to me cause that's pretty much the story of my life.

This whole episode felt like skyrim

This show needs ragdoll physics glitches. IT IS REQUIRED.

I'm surprised you feel that way. He seems like a pretty bland protagonist so far. Not annoying or anything, just kinda boring. He's not even especially awkward. If anything, he's quite the lady-killer.

Liz was great, though. Super cute. I really enjoyed this episode.

Disagree! In a time where shonen anime is flooded with spineless (Shinji, Yuuki (sorry Jack) ) characters or "too stupid to lose" (Naruto, Gon, Luffy) characters, Kirito is a breath of fresh air.

He can fight, think, and consider the feelings of others.

I'm not really sure if I would consider SAO a traditional 'shonen' anime. It's sort of an adventure, sifi thing with some romance elements.

But regardless, the thing that throws me off about Kirito is that he's basically perfect. He's handsome, intelligent (most of the time), crazy powerful, and almost everyone he meets seems to like him. He has very little personality, apart from being supposedly 'anti-social', which hasn't really been a relevant character trait since like episode one. Since then he's been more than willing to help others, and has even started fighting along side other players. There wasn't even really a character ark there, the show just suddenly decided that it didn't want to have a loner protagonist (which I think could have been interesting). He's not a douchbag, or super annoying, so I don't really have any problems with him like I did with Yuuki from Mirai Nikki. I just see him as the Mary Sue character of the show, and was confused when you guys started talking about how great he is.

So there. Kirito is fine, but that's all he is. Ya'll can like him if you want.

I think what I like about Kirito is that there's more to him than what we see. We saw this when he was shown in real life. And I keep seeing subtle hints here and there that there's a lot of deeper stuff going on in his head that motivates all of his decisions. Then I think about the fact that anyone who can put that much effort into a beta must have a lot to disappear from in real life. I think what we see in the game world is just a reflection of how he wishes he could be in the real world--capable of protecting his sister. Which, in turn, is fueling his need to finish the game. He's perfect in the game world because he has to be; otherwise he'll lose.

Sure took them long enough for the "Fall down with a hand full of boob" gag.

I had a similar thought. I was a bit disappointed they pandered like that - but hey - dem titties.

-If boss monsters can't leave the room, why do you walk into it just enough for the doors to lock behind you?  Did the entire Zelda series teach you nothing?

-I kept thinking that guy who had the problem with Kirito was a non-player character.  They haven't really explained him yet, but he is in the credits.

-The guy in the cloak looked an awful lot like the bald merchant-guy.

I have a bad feeling about Asuna's odds of surviving the boss.

Watched the first episode yesterday evening on a whim, just sat and got up to date with the series today

The door opened inwards, logic dictates you don't walk forward enough for it to close behind you :P

Boob-gag aside, I thought this episode was pretty good. Maybe not as good as last week's, though.

-The guy in the cloak looked an awful lot like the bald merchant-guy.
I thought the same thing. No idea what he was doing there.

I have a bad feeling about Asuna's odds of surviving the boss.
I doubt they'll kill her off this early on in the series. They haven't really done much with her character yet.

Edit: Actually, after looking at those two quotes together, I have a feeling that the bald merchant guy entered the dungeon after them, and is gonna save there asses when the battle becomes too intense.

-The guy in the cloak looked an awful lot like the bald merchant-guy.

- That part pissed me the fuck off. Why would you walk into a boss room when you said you shouldn't walk into a boss room.

- I have a feeling the guy is actually obsessed with Asuna in less of a "I want a rapier" way and more of a "I wanna rape 'er" way.

- I didn't even notice that. D: I really hope not, that guy is awesome. :C

I have a bad feeling about Asuna's odds of surviving the boss.

While the series doesn't seem to have a problem with killing random side-characters, I doubt they'll kill of Asuna. She's the secondary main character and all. If she does get killed off, it'd probably be like...in the last couple of episodes. I hope that doesn't happen though. T___T

Also, the boob gag pissed me off. Just cause I'm getting tired of seeing it, and having such cheap humour tossed haphazardly into a great show seems kind of ridiculous. They should have done some sort of play off of it or something at least...
