3 of season 2 was good. Actually depth in the sub plot . Had posted on 2 before but show how it has gone to that glitch in the sky. But then the Gun Gale Online reminded me a bit of ..

But the more I think of it an the more the show goes on it reminds me more of...

I'm thinking Sinon's friend could be Death Gun. Who suggest to a girl to immerse in a shooting game if they are afraid of guns? Also, she is afraid of real guns not virtual guns but why did she freak out at the bully.

@takashichea: I think I am going to really enjoy this, already three episodes in and I am still wanting more.

@takashichea: Yeah, I felt the same way. I think you could make out the hair of the guy too.

@LHWKnight:

Are you watching the first season or SAO II?

@Supreme Marvel:

Let's hope our new villain has better motives. I like the first villain because he wasn't perverted although he forgot why he committed those atrocities after building his castle.

Yes they are following the novel almost to a T.

The pacing is so good the development between Sinon & Kirito.

That first person POV was a good choice.

the reason why kirito is so good with a sword even in this game is because he has used to it because of the fact that he has been using a sword for the last two years and the fact that all the MMO mainstream games are linked to the original SAO and so his experiences all transferred over.

That bit about him playing racing games before was in the novel but left out of the anime.

So this was a good episode.

Episode 4 I found to be a great bit of fun. The mention of cyberpunk was cool to. The confusion over looks was a hoot.

Also of note the pistol is a real thing https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FN_Five-seven

I think what we have with this volume is it is flushing it out better. While I felt V1 rushed things. I feel you could watch V1 week by week and get a lot out of it. V2 is better to watch it all in one go. So far.

I am liking it though. Kirito's brain, would be very sharp which is good.

@Marshal Victory:

I just realized the arcs are focusing one girl.

  • Season 1 of SAO - Asuna even though they introduce each girl (Lisbeth, Silica)
  • Season 2 of SAO - Suguha/Leafa even though Asuna was the damsel of distress
  • SAO II - Sinon

I think the glasses guy made Kirito's avatar effeminate just to make Kirito's life hard.

@takashichea: Kind of yeah. Season 2 of SAO had more females in the cast tho.

About his look it could have been. Could have been the A.I. child fixed the odds for him to remember the other world.Because he does look like variant of the other avatars he has had. Also in mmorpg terms a G.I.R.L. in game is Guy In Real Life. The whole thing was amusing to me.

An no would not put that past the agent glasses guy either. But that also would make him stand out more with a rare avatar.
