We start this episode with a nice battle against the giant Thrym. In previous episode, I wasn’t sure if those twin monsters are classified as “raid boss” or not, but Thrym is certainly a raid boss. Again, it’s rather unrealistic to have few players win against a raid boss with legendary weapon in their FIRST […]

All the build-ups in the last few weeks lead to this episode. Shiroe finally reveals his grand plan to deal with the extremely high maintenance cost of controlling important buildings/locations in Akihabara to prevent enemies from purchasing them. Rather than trying to get enormous money to get all the buildings, Shiroe’s wish is to purchase […]

We finally get to see some good action in this episode. Fighting boss. All the combined skills and teamwork. I feel refreshed now ! That battle against the twin […]

And a Silver Sword member notices the change. Now, the real strategy to defeat 3 bosses. First, positioning. Our raid party is set to break away from Luseat […]

We have a new arc starting from this episode. Since episode 14.5 is basically a recap, I don’t even bother to do any screenshot and write something about it. Our next arc of SAO is about a legendary sword called Calibur. We’re back to ALO, back to the root of the story. And I’m really […]

This episode, we get a very good look on William as a character. Previously we only know him as the leader of Silver Sword guild who declined Shiroe’s request to join Round Table last season, followed by how he quickly agreed to help Shiroe with his raid task this season. Apparently there is a very […]

So Kazuto did help Asada, but he couldn’t manage to defeat Kyouji. He got himself stabbed with the lethal injection instead. The one who finished Kyouji is Asada herself, she knocks Kyouji out with a stereo. Luckily, Kyouji stabbed Kazuto in the exact spot of his monitoring electrode, which apparently was not properly removed when […]

The story goes back to Shiroe’s adventure in the mysterious raid zone. I like the fact that this anime presents game raid in a believable way. Silver Sword is a strong raid guild, we all know that since last season, but now we actually see them in action. Even better, this episode shows that even […]

Steven / Death Gun continues to attack Kirito. To catch the player in real life, Kirito needs to remember his character name in SAO. It seemed impossible at the beginning, because after the raid to capture Laughing Coffin Guild, Kirito refused to know his name. Thankfully, Kirito manages to figure out his name during his […]

I was wrong. Miyu’s version of Rider turns out to be reasonably cool and I quite enjoy the battle scene. Bazett’s ultimate weapon (Fragarach) is a weapon that will kill anyone using noble phantasm by going back few seconds before the noble phantasm is activated and kill the caster. Miyu is about to use Rider’s […]
