This week’s in-city raid is fun to watch, involves a lot of players with flashy spells and truly highlight Akatsuki’s character development. Not only she finally experiences her very first raid, she also learns her special “teaching” and receives […]

Still in the cave with Sinon, Kirito realizes that Death Gun actually had the chance to shoot him using his death pistol, but he didn’t. He shot Kirito with “normal” sniper weapon instead.
