Finally a discussion about Kill la Kill! My friends are so missing on a great show. Hope day change there mind.... Anyways I was wondering if there could be more references we could find in the past episodes. I also found the Pulp fiction reference too during episode 4.
This bugging has been me quite a while lately. I know that there are animes this fall that are cool like Infinite Stratos 2, Golden Time, Strike the Blood and Etc. But when I try to talk to friends about Kill la Kill they don't talk about it that much than the other shows. Kil la Kill is an awesome show as long as you turn off your brain and watch it. I don't know if i should still suggest this to others if i will only get the same result of them not being interested in it.
I think guns fights in GGO will be actually awesome i mean the way the did the sword fights in the 1st season were given lots depths and hype so seeing guns in action might turn out good if they make GGO into a anime
@sickVisionz: kirito and sinon have to deal with a mysterious enemy who player kills and at the same dies in the real world. or maybe it is because they have Player vs Player type of game. I thinks that is the divine force of GGO. or its the fact they want to see kirito as a girl LOL!
Man, Kirito looks like a woman (not to be sexist).
Actually Kirito is a woman in this one. Don't know the exact details but he is using a female avatar for some reason.
Actually he got a rare type of avatar. He is still using a male avatar, its just that he just really looks like girl for some weird reason....
@Acura_Max: That was more of a joke spin-off though. SAO actually has these conflicts in it and they were what kept me most interested in the second half of season one.
The same for me. The reason why i kept watching SAO was beacause i wanted to see also some conflicts between kirito's relationship with Asuna and who will he really end up it. Go team Kirito and Suguha!
Update: Sorry guys but apparently there is no actual confirmation regarding SAO season 2 yet. So it might be next year that SAO might be anounced. I did some research on Dengeki Online and Anime news network, and i cant find any news about it. Makes feel bad about posting the rumor. Lets just wait and see for further anoucements regarding the new season.
@ShadowKnight508: well if you're still stuck at the ALO arc episodes it will be very fast but if its in the SAO arc... Good luck to you :)
Greeting fellow vicers! and a fine christmas for all. ARD here and i got some pretty interesting news. I'm sure you guys are already finding some new animes to watch after the final episode of SAO. I'm also currently watching animes that i missed during the spread of the Sword Art Madness that started during july like Kokoro Connect . Anyways back to the main topic... Recently i heard "Rumors" in the net that apparently after the end of SAO there has been word that Season 2 has been already confirmed. And i don't mean the ALfheim online arc, that's part of the 1st season. What i mean is Season 2 will feature the arc which is Gun Gale Online! or GGO!
Actually i kinda find this news a bit too fast and unsure. I mean due to immense world wide popularity in the Otaku society and anime forums, Sword art online is the most popular anime this year so i would already conclude that Season 2 is a Big possibility. Whether you guys love the series or not, It will happen. But i'm just to curious why would they announce season 2 to quickly. Is It beacuse of the Fans non-stop support of this show or is it beacuse that A-1 pictures (the animation studio) gets the big amount of cash to start on making season 2. I would have guess that they would announce it next year in Spring 2013 but to my surprise they announce it already. This is just a rumor so dont get to over-hype about it. Even i have mixed reactions regarding this rumor
*Warning: The following may contains spoilers * (But thats kinda unlikely since almost if not all know this arc so just read it anyways)
Anyways i'l give the backround about it and what to expect in the next arc.
Mostly Gun gale use mainly on guns (obviously) but melee weapons will be available for use so expect lots of action .
A new added companion(cough...Harem...cough) Asada Sinon. She has a very bad experience in her childhood so she use GGO as her way of trying to remove her fear of guns. Also has slight Androphobia. How will this affect her relationship with kirito
The introduction of PvP called Bullet of Bullets
Well guys thanking you for reading. Now that Sword Art Online is finished, i can now catch up with anime that missed. Same goes for you guys who missed some very interesting animes this year. And if the Rumor is a whole lie then i made this for nothing. But still i would make it cause Season 2 is happening. Well then Guys Merry Christmas and have a very Happy New Year.

So what is Sword Art Online?
Sword Art Online is a Japanese light novel series written by Kawahara Reki (The same person who Also Created Accel World) and illustrated by abec . The series is published by ASCII Media Works under Dengeki Bunko.
It was adapted into an anime series by A-1 Pictures and was air on July 2012. The series has also been adapted into a manga series, with illustrations by Nakamura Tamako. A game called Sword Art Online: Infinity Moment for the PSP is in the works.
Kawahara Reki wrote the first volume in 2002 as contribution for the ASCII Media works’ Dengeki Game Novel Prize but refrained from sending it in due to exceeding the page limit. Thus he published it as a web novel using the pseudonym Fumio Kunori. Over time he added three further volumes and several short stories. In 2008 he tried again for the prize by writing Accel World and this time won the Grand Prize. Aside from Accel World he was also asked to get his prior work Sword Art Online published by ASCII Media Works. Kawahara agreed and withdrew his web novel versions. The republication as a paper novel began on April 10, 2009.
A huge castle made of stone and steel floating in an endless sky.
That was all this world was.
It took a varied group of craftsmen one month to survey the place; the diameter of the base floor was about 10 kilometers—large enough that the entirety of Setagaya-ku would fit on it. Above, there were 100 floors stacked directly on top of each other; its sheer size was unbelievable. It was impossible to even guess how much data it consisted of.
Inside, there were a couple of large cities and countless small towns and villages, forests and plains, even lakes. Only one stairway linked each floor to another, and the stairways were in dungeons where large numbers of monsters roamed, so discovering and getting through was no easy matter. However, once someone broke through and arrived at a city in the higher floor, the Teleport Gates there and in every city in the lower floors would connect, making it possible for anyone to move freely through these levels.
Under these conditions, the huge castle had been steadily conquered over two years. The current front line is the 74th floor.
The name of the castle was Aincrad, a world of battles with swords that continued floating and had engulfed approximately six thousand people. Otherwise known as...
Sword Art Online
Real Name: Kirigaya Kazuto
The Main Character of Sword Art Online. Introduce from the Very Start. Has a strange resemblance of Squall from The Final Fantasy series (For me).
A Skilled and powerful swordsman. He is always using a One-handed sword style. Was one of the 1000 Beta player who played SAO in its Beta-stages.
He may seem like a Lone anti-hero but he has a good heart to help those who are troubled. He is known all over SAO as "The Black Swordsman" and a "Beater"
Real Name: Yuuki Asuna
Another Main Character in Sword Art online. At first she didn't want to join or form a party but eventually she became also known to all SAO players and wanted her in their party cause of her beauty and grace in battle.
Skilled with One-handed swords and is part of and a leader of the strongest guild in SAO called "Knight of the Blood" She often hangs out with kirito to avoid her duties.
She serves as the close friends and moral support of Kirito. As the series progress they have gotten a more deepen relationship. Also being known in SAO she is given the tile as "The White Flash"
Along the way Kirito and Asuna meet other players who will help them in their journey or change them for the better.
Real Name: Tsuboi Ryoutarou - The first person who was taught by kirito. Became fast friends easily with him. He wants to help kirito badly but kirito refuses and ask him to get more stronger
Real Name: ??? - A close friend of Kirito. Her death had an emotional trauma for Kirito that changed him making him regret hiding his true powers.

SAO - Abbreviation for Sword Art Online. The objective of all the Players in SAO is to clear all 100 floors in Aincrad. Its was turned out that the "Special Feature" of the game was there was no LOG out button and that Death in the game causes Death in the Real World.
Solo Player - a player who fight own their own in order to increase level output without sharing EXP to others. They are Given a Risk vs. Reward system to all solo players, since they are in Great danger only by them selves but in return will receive a great amount of EXP or Rare items.

Beater - A term that is used in SAO. It a cross between a "Beta-Tester"(a player who were given early access to the Sword Art Online game before the release) and a "Cheater". Its a uses as harsh term to those people who play unfair, such as prior knowledge of game mechanics or Best farming spots.
PKer - Abbreviation for Player killer. an act of killing a player in the game
Crystals - There three types of crystals in SAO
This not just your typical adventure, hack and slash type of anime the you most commonly see. Sword Art Online brings a new generations of Anime that is sure to be well known for a long time. Its brings out a similar feeling when you play you favorite MMORPG and puts you in a question, What if i was in Kirito's position? Will i do the same thing he does? Things like that goes to your head and its actually amazing. Just 10 more years, would we actually play Sword Art Online if it actually exist. The show itself is breath-taking to the point that you're just there at the edge of your seat awaiting for the next scene of a Epic Battle scene or revelation to discover the purpose why Sword Art Online was even created to begin with.
I like how they make time for an Episode that balances all themes in just one sitting. They didn't make it all about Kirito's emotional problems or just going to the main story, They showed Side Stories that made us know and understand everything about the characters and how they are involved in SAO cause without them it would just be a regular hack and slash. The themes that they show are all there. At times it will be a Introduction of a new character and the next they switch to new theme to a person who is important and dies the next that questions the moral grounds and values of his actions. Love also is being shown Between Kirito and Asuna and at times the other girls who knows kirito like Silica and Lisbeth falls in love him. Scenes of funny moments are also good thing to see in the show and Fighting scenes or Shocking episodes is what makes us crave for the next episode.
The Animation and Colored effects are Splendid and Superb. BGM while watching those story scenes make them intense and worthwhile to watch.
I recommend this to all who have been waiting for a anime version of this since the Light novel was made and for those who want to have a favorite anime right now. Also i recommend this to those who are also Watching accel world cause they have the same story plot of them in the future using a device that enables them to live their own reality within a game.
Even if you read first the light novel, manga, and watch the anime, Kawahara Reki Story of Sword Art Online is chance you should not miss
And i'm pretty sure you'll get interested to it when you read Chapter 16.5 of the light novel
