    Think it's getting into the main storyline now. This is getting exciting.

    This right here might be the only thing against this show since it doesn't follow him as he goes floor by floor, instead it jumps like 10 or 20 floors at a time.

    Episode 8 is already out, following the main storyline. I'm surprise they didn't include Kirito's first day since I think it would be a good episode, but that is in volume 8, and that all the episode we saw so far are base on volume 1 and 2.

    Do you know where I can find a good translated version of the Light Novels?

    I don't know about good translated version, but I did link to one that had the translated version of the light novel on the first page. As long as it's readable, I'm happy.

    The first ep wooked so EPIC but after that they ruened the anime by trowing one of its two AWESOME parts (The fighting) and they started focusing on the romance wich could have worked if didn't have restriction on how many episodes they could make coz now they have to jump trough time leaving large parts of the story.
    I think the next episode will take a place a few mounghts after the tenth and the 12th episode will be like the final boss or someting and then if there are another 12 eps they'll be fillers of the blanks in time
    Seriusly I liked this anime for the first 2-3 eps but if I had to rate it now I'd probablly give it 2.5\5
    I try to be good,but then I get bored!
    You have been warned.

    This episode was... interesting?

    Kirito got 1-hit :|
    That's... sad
    That or the duel was "first blood" or something, I didn't see which option
    they picked.

    The shield ******* is strong. He stopped / slowed time or something. He looks like he was 50 or something though, funny 50 year old making guilds in videogames...

    The end was a little ehhhh what am I watching. What they'd do, cyber?
    I would laugh if the evil game programmer dude actually added the possibility
    of sex in game. That'd be pretty messed with all the pre-teens running
    around. Although I guess that's insignificant compared to getting a bunch
    of people killed. LOL

    Because of the death penalty in SOA, they all use the first strike rule in duels. This is a description of the duel rules that was used, which was taken from the light novel.

    I nodded in reply, then pressed Yes and chose the «First Strike Mode» from the options.

    This was a duel that could be won either by landing the first clean hit or by reducing the opponent's HP to half. The message changed to [You have accepted the 1-on-1 duel with Kuradeel], and a countdown of 60 seconds appeared below it. The moment that number reached zero, the HP protection system that was in effect within the town would be momentarily withdrawn, and he and I would be able to cross swords until one of us won.

    Too bad there's no spoiler tag like in myanimelist forums, so I apologize for anyone else read this hoping to not be spoil. BTW, this is from the light novel.

    I tried to explain while frantically waving my hands about to Asuna, who was about to throw her second punch without paying any attention to me.

    “I'm sorry, I was wrong!! Bu...But, anyway, can you... like... actually d-do it...? In SAO...?”

    Asuna dropped her attacking stance and was a bit taken aback, although still furious. Then she asked:

    “You, you mean you don't know...?”

    “No, I don't...”

    Then, Asuna's expression changed suddenly from one of anger to one of embarrassment, before she explained in a small voice:

    “...That is... In the options menu, all the way on the bottom... there's an option called «Ethic Code Off».”

    It was the first time I had ever heard of such a thing. I'm sure this wasn't available during the beta test, nor was it mentioned in the manual. To think that this was another price that I had to pay for playing as a solo player and not having any interest except fighting.

    But this information raised a new question that I couldn't help but think about. Since I still hadn't fully recovered my ability to think straight, I unintentionally said it out loud:

    “...Have... Have you ever done it before...?”

    Once again, Asuna's iron fist erupted in sparks right before my face.

    "O-Of course not, you idiot—!! I just heard about it from the other girls in the guild!!"

    I hurried to kneel down on the ground before her and apologized endlessly. It took several minutes before I finally managed to calm her down.

    i gotta say the dual wielding finish against The Gleaming Eyes (the blue minotaur boss) was pretty freaking epic.

    one irk I have about the anime series so far is that we don't see much into the details of items~ like what stats they have, defense/offense, etc....and just wth is the name of the sword Asuna is wielding. (We know the 2 swords Kirito has are The Elucidator and Dark Repulser).

    I am guessing the author is going to do an OVA series for the fill-ins of the many levels and floors that the episodes skip from one to the next.

    still, I enjoyed the last 2 episodes~ lots of action (especially 9th one).

    edit: on that note, is it just me, or does watching all these episodes give a sudden desire to play classic games like Ragnarok?

    edit2: I just realized, watch the opening of Sword Art Online or the action scenes in general while listening to the Claymore Opening music. OMG EPICCCCC

    Thanks for that. I guess I'm gonna have to read the light novel now, since I keep hearing how so much detail is missing :/.

    I've got to say, this weeks Episode was the best one I've seen since the first episode. It's been so long since I've seen an anime that actually has progression in the story. Most of them hold off on doing major stuff like what happened in this episode til right at the end :/

    I think I'm going to read the Light Novel now. Can anyone tell me where to start reading if I am up to the latest episode? I don't want to re-read a story I've already watched (tho if it's completely different/ a lot more detailed than the anime, I would be willing to start from the beginning).

    Anime is alright but alright says a lot when the anime industry is flooded with poorly written anime.

    It's the first anime in quite some time that I could actually find some entertainment from.

    There are plenty of flaws to the anime but nothing so jarring that it puts me off.

    If you think about it their bodies are just in a vegetative state so someone has to feed them and clean up all their shit.....for years.

    I'm pretty sure they mentioned in real life the time is not passing as fast as it is in game ;o.

    Well I doubt 2 years in the game equals less than one day.

    so I've been thinking that the art style of the anime series was pretty familiar...so I decided to look through my memory archives and what do you know~? the art style is similar to that of Ubel Blatt. Kirito looks like Ato the dual-wielding girl fighting alongside Koinzell. Since that manga is all about sword styles, I guess it sort of makes sense that the art style would be similar? Not sure if the artist/author is the same but...yea~

    Indeed, in the manga it is mentionned their bodies are to be carried to hospital in the next 2 hours and cared for ...

    I don't recall anything about the speed of time in real life vs the game has been mentioned though.

    If you remember in the first episode one character mentions he ordered pizza at 5: 30 and the sun was setting in the game world.
    So both times could be linked together.

    yeah i also noticed that lol.
    btw ep10 was nice but its moving at a too fast pace imo. in my eyes asuna and kirito barely met but they are close as if they have been together years, which is the case since it keeps skipping time, but because of this the storyline doesnt work out well for the anime.

    a lot of anime/manga series have a fast-paced romance tbh. in SAO case, asuna and kirito have been playing the game for 2years or so now...so im sure they had more chances to get to know each other.

    but i didnt expect asuna to be the one to take the initiative lol...stripping first~ who knew?

    on that note, i started playing Ragnarok again thanks to this anime. swordsman ofc~
