Thanks to Kirito’s appearance, Asuna, Yuuki and the rest of Sleeping Knights guild can force their way to the boss room to try again. This time they actually defeat the boss. Let’s save the fact that a party of that size can actually defeat a floor boss, but to be able to do that in the second attempt… any gamer with reasonable experience would agree with me that it’s an extremely difficult victory to achieve, if not next to impossible.
After the victory, comes the celebration. Asuna seems to be very keen to know Yuuki more. But it seems that Yuuki has things she does not want Asuna to know. When Yuuki calls Asuna “nee-chan” for the second time, Asuna tells her that she did the same thing back in the boss room. Yuuki cries and quickly logs out from the game.
This episode gives me a nice feeling of accomplishment. Yuuki’s battle scenes against the floor boss is awesome. Her furious attack sequence reminds me of Kirito’s scene when he first use dual-wield skill to defeat floor boss in SAO. It feels cool. It feels grand. Now that the goal to defeat floor boss is achieved rather early in the arc, I guess the main focus of this arc is more about Yuuki’s real life identity. Probably the rest of Sleeping Knights guild knows her, or even share the same secret.
