Sword Art Online – 09

1 Comment

~I’m back with episodic posts! 😀 My exams are over and I hope that the results will be great. This is episode 9 of SAO and I haven’t watched 10. I’ll probably do that later (or tomorrow?). The rest of the series I’m usually posting will be done in awhile. Hopefully tomorrow(:

I don’t know if anyone out there is still disliking Sword Art Online but personally, it had gotten better for me. Although I haven’t exactly seen where this story will go, I’m enjoying the two episodes where we get to see Asuna and Kirito together. Other than their pair up, I’m also enjoying the recent battles most especially in this episode wherein we get to see more of Kirito’s badass fighting and his unique skill.

Now for those people complaining about A-1 Pictures’ decision to follow the light novel and begin with the side stories, I suggest that you give this series another chance. Personally, I didn’t entirely like the idea as well but I believe that those side stories weren’t really just to give us the rules of this game rather those side stories are actually a part of Kirito’s development (well I’m pretty sure you all know that).

As everyone might have noticed, I’m a fan of Kirito and I like how Kirito was like: now who’s the good guy? – in this episode. Not that he’s playing good guy because he wanted to. His decision to see how The Army guild gone was purely driven by emotion because of what he experience back then. But then again, he didn’t had the intention to help them to begin with. If it wasn’t for Asuna’s intervention, Kirito wouldn’t have probably joined the boss fight and let that guild die just like that right before them.

Probably one of the best thing about this episode is the battle. Of course that’s what I’m really expecting from Sword Art Online and I’m glad to see some cool battle like this. Also, I’m really happy to see Kirito work not only with Asuna but also with Klein who probably have grown even stronger since the last time we saw him.

I wasn’t really surprised with Kirito’s unique ability because a friend of mine who’s reading the manga version have already told me about it (as well as what’s going to happen on the next episode). Although I have to admit that seeing Kirito use it was heck cool. Now I’m liking him even more :3 I like how Kirito has practically sacrificed himself to save everyone from that boss and he even used his unique ability which he’s probably trying his best to keep from public.

Finally, I’d like to go through with that cliffhanger. Although I know what will be the output of their battle, I’m still pretty interested to see it. Asuna sure is a pretty important and strong member of their guild, huh? The bet that Kirito just entered sure is pretty interesting. I’d say that either Kirito wins or lose, I’d still like the outcome. I mean if he wins, seeing more of Kirito x Asuna is definitely a plus for me while seeing Kirito join the guild would also mean more interesting things to see here in SAO.

~Also, I’m trying this new style of post. I decided to make more paragraphs than squishing most of them in a three or four like before. I think that this is easier to read(:

One thought on “Sword Art Online – 09

  1. “Asuna sure is a pretty important and strong member of their guild, huh?”

    As with any class/level system, your actual physical attributes aren’t nearly as important as your level(s) and the toys you carry. Of course, some are brave because they have that edge, while others would be brave even if they didn’t have that edge. I believe Asuna, as well as Kirito, fall into the latter category (as well as most of those who participate in the lead groups for sure).

    But while the fight was really good, it wasn’t the most important thing, just the trigger for the most important thing. Kirito charged in because Asuna charged in, and Klein charged in because they did. And, most importantly, at the end Kirito was left to wonder if Asuna would ever let go of him 😉
