SAO II 04 – It’s Kirito being Kirito… Again
Is there anyone out there that isn’t completely sick of Kirito? <sound of crickets> Okay, I thought so. Unfortunately, Kirito is a major part of SAO, and he’s back. He’ll probably play a huge role in every episode from now on, so the only thing we can do is resign ourselves to the stupidity and try to make the best of it.
SAO II 03 – Everybody Wants the D
Well, *that* was surprising! I really enjoyed this episode! Sure, there were some problems (like the entire time Kirito was on screen). However, Sinon’s back-story was played quite well, requiring only a modest suspension of disbelief. SAO 2 is far from being perfect, but this week was definitely a step in the right direction.
SAO II 02 – All About Crotches
I didn’t have very high expectations for SAO 2 following the vomit-worthy ALO arc of the first season. Even considering that, this episode didn’t impress me. I want to enjoy this series, but it’s probably going to take a while until the bad taste of SAO 1 leaves my mouth.
SAO II 01 – The Moment We’ve All Been Waiting For
Sword Art Online 2. It’s what anime fans across the world have been waiting for, right? I, too, have been waiting for this day, with clenched fists and gritted teeth. Something about the first few episodes of SAO 1 captured my imagination, and then it went downhill. Quickly. A series I loved transformed into a series I hated, but I kept watching every week hoping it would get better. Sadly, it did not. What will SAO 2 bring?
So…. What exactly was my beef with the first season of SAO?
