I just got up-to-date with this show (wasn't hard with only 2 eps) and while it has some issues, I'm enjoying it. The Crunchyroll subs are hilarious. It totally needs a dub, and not just any dub, a Sentai dub. The only problem with that is that the black dude with the hammer totally could be Patrick Seitz, who has yet to do any Seraphim dubs, afaik lol.
If AoA gets this, then I probably won't be able to, and that would make me sad
I don't see how eating and drinking in the virtual world actually nourishes your physical body. I'm hoping that they develop the nutjob who created the lethal game, character wise. I thought it was interesting that even though the main character seems gullible and easily guilted that he is also a total dick, to put it mildly.
So, since my best friend has been playing Aion a lot recently, I decided to see if this would interest her.
It's so hard getting her to watch any anime at all, I was actually quite impressed that she enjoyed the first two episodes enough, that she's actually willing to sit through both seasons all the while saying "Is it Saturday yet?"
Last time she was this excited about a simulcast was High School of the Dead.
After watching this episode, I don’t think I’d ever want to try such a game and risk being trapped in it. The end was creepy when they said that out of 10,000 players, 2,000 are already dead and the first floor has yet to be cleared!
I only felt a little bad at the death of Sachi, since we really didn't get to know her very well other than her not wanting to die (like most people in that situation I would think) but then the final message gift at the end had me in tears.
The final message was telling of her character, it made me think less of her.
Resigning to death is lame. I hope that the protagonist was getting "something" out of that tedious relationship, but I don't think he was, and I don't think he minded.
He's kind of a bland, emotional punk. I'm hoping that we get some more interesting characters in here stat. This is reminding me of bleach in the the primary protagonist is the most boring and least interesting member of the cast.
Bring back the black dude with the hammer who agreed that those who can't keep up shouldn't step up (to quote Riddick). He wouldn't have been all teary-eyed about a bunch of punks getting themselves killed.
If the message had been received while she was still alive, that would have been hilarious. That message was such a cheap gift.
I didn't care for the format of ep 3, the time skips were tedious. Though by introducing a whole new cast of characters, I don't need to use spoiler tags as you need to see ep 3 to know what is being discussed. I'll take that silver lining, thank you...
MOD EDIT: Please use spoiler tags so you don't spoil the story for people who haven't seen this yet.
You really need to work with the Spoiler button more.
A lot of that post should be in spoiler tags since not everyone is watching it.
Slow edited your Red Garden post for that very reason.
Like I said, you have to have seen ep 3 to know what any of it means. No names were used, and if you've seen enough of ep 3 to piece together spoilers from what I said, well, you already knew how it was going to end. If you're not keeping up with a current series, yet you're keeping up with the forum, spoilers are par for the course.
Also, I don't understand y'all and your hellbent quest to prevent "spoilers", so I'll leave the tagging to those that do. The tags screw with the aesthetic of the posts and aren't the most convenient thing to use.
BTW I think it is pretty funny that someone could think that I am "spoiling" Red Garden when I haven't even seen all of it yet. I could say something incorrect about the nature of the show, and that can't be put into a spoiler in good faith by me as misinformation wouldn't be a spoiler.
Aniplex USA to Release LiSA's "Crossing Field" Single
Additionally, Aniplex of America also announced that Japanese singer LiSA's opening single for the Sword Art Online television anime series, "Crossing Field," will be released in the United States in three different versions: a regular edition, a limited edition, and an anime edition. The company previously released four of her albums physically and digitally.
Now we get into Mystery genre territory.
And it's a story arc that last more than one episode at that!
Asuna is back! Though with the way they've been jumping time, she's all badass now and one of the leaders of her group.
Kirito & Asuna get involved in a murder mystery, trying to find out who's killing members of an old disbanded group called the Golden Apple. Seems one of the old members is making the weapons that are killing people within the safe zone and the weapons are being left behind.
I can't wait to find out how all this is coming about!
I have a few theories, but nothing too concrete to go on as of yet.
