So /a/, what are your thoughts on the forthcoming second season of SaO?
Expectations, criticisms, opinions, anything's welcome
I'm going to filter every thread like I did season 1
Sinon a cute.
Critical Engrish failures, critical animation failure on side characters, stills in every fight, and CG guns and bullets.
Kirito "died" in the first season too, but then he was like lol but I'm the hero tho and eh Coem baek 2 lief and doesn't afraid of amything
HEROS WA CUM BACK
TREE TOO ONE MAKE SOME NOISE
On a side note, the gun thing might be cool. For some reason I'm getting like a borderlands-esque kinda thing going on in my head
Does he start pretending to be a girl in the new one?
I ain't even gonna watch it
He becomes a trap
fuck ye, gunna watch the fuck out of this
Can he not pls
No, because the future of online gaming is subscription based and randomized avatars, customizable appearances are an extra fee.
Why doesnt he just kill some niggers, get credits, turn it into dollars (cause Aparently that's a thing you can do in this game) and change his fucking avatar
I'll watch it for the threads.
Why would he do that when he already has the best avatar?
what i'm wondering is if they are going to do another 26 ep season what will be the second half after GGO. Will aids girl get to be best girl?
I wonder where they can go after this, if they even decide to make another season. Like, swords, guns, magic, what other mmo stereotipical gametypes are there
Should be amusing. All the trap porn should be bonerrific.
mmo in real life
But... He didn't die. Anime wanted it to look more dramatic. Yes, it told him "You are dead" but he hadn't shattered yet.
And before anyone goes "But Heathclif was surprised!" Yeah, well, 2 seconds ago, Kirito looked like an emotional shell. Kinda expected him to just roll-over and die.
Yes, S2 needs to end with Kirito dying.
If we get 25 ep season again, then it'll likely cover (hopefully) Caliber, and Mother's Rosario, and (hopefully) Volume 9, interlude 2
I NEED the tears. They keep me strong.
How much did the first serie sold?
I still can't believe people watch Kirito play this game from inside of another game.
Anime-only fan tears are the best.
It's like livestream in the future.
Well, considering people can use the internet from inside most games, it's not too shocking. And a game like BoB likely streams their games anyways, just like LoL and such, today.
They also find it more efficient to do homework inside the game. The future sure is wonderful.
But in all seriousness, ALO is like Second Life to the cast.
I think the first blu ray sold around 30,000 copies.
I don't think you understood the question...
If SAO ever ends up outselling Slayers and Guin Saga I'm going to be very sad.
Look at this shit /a/
Look at it
Who the fuck acts like that? IM IN LOVE WITH ONII CHAN
WHY THE FUCK ARE YOU IN LOVE WITH ONII CHAN
THAT'S YOUR FUCKING CHARACTER
THAT'S ALL THE CHARACTERS IN THIS FUCKING SERIES ARE DEFINED BY
THEIR RELATION TO GARY STU
THEY EITHER HATE GARY STU AND WANT TO FUCK HIS SUPER SPECIAL RICH WAIFU
OR THEY WANT TO FUCK GARY STU BECAUSE THEY'RE SUPER SPECIAL WAIFUS THEMSELVES
EVEN KLIEN IS DEFINED BY HOW HE WANTS A SUCK OF KIRITO'S COCK
I HATE THIS
THESE CHARACTERS AREN'T HUMAN FUCKING BEINGS
Hey. Fuck you buddy. The incest porn was the best thing to ever come out of SAO.
Woodcutter simulator then.
I once made the mistake of watching an English dubbed episode of slayers
I cried for days
But Anon, the recent seasons of Slayers have been garbage.
Or are you talking about the novels sales numbers?
You are right Oreime was better in everyway
I'm just waiting for and OVA/special with adaptation of chapter 16.5.
Nothing else matters.
16.5 was bad porn, and you should feel bad for liking it.
What if they made an anime based off of like, say, shadow of the colossus or something
That'd be pretty cool
>WHY THE FUCK ARE YOU IN LOVE WITH ONII CHAN
Wasn't this kinda covered? Though, I guess you can tell yourself it's unrealistic, and people don't really like their relatives in real-life (which I'm sure there are a lot that do)
But yeah, Leafa did seem kinda underdeveloped. Reki at the time of writing SAO was terrible. You would think when he rewrote it for the Light Novel, he would give better development.
I'm gonna enjoy watching it, looks fun.
I don't think that anon wants it for the artistic merit.You know, judging by his reaction image and the rest of the volumes also being bad.
>implying I anybody would want to see it because they liked it, not for lelz
>I once made the mistake of watching an English dubbed episode of slayers
>I cried for days
the hungarian dub decided that 'Inverse' is actually 'In Verse' and had her speaking in terribad rhymes for the first season
>people in hungaria watching anime
Unfortunately, we live in a world where there exists people who found the short story version of 16.5 fappable and hot.
This is the actual potentially fappable version of 16.5:
Note the lack of two years' worth of glop.
WHAT THE FUCK IS THAT
>people in hungaria watching anime
well, it certainly did nothing to encourage the practice.
the local chan still has a board dedicated to rhyming lina in loving memory: http://magyarchan.net/ir/
Fak off ok, I don't geography good, nor do I give two shits
Reminder of the bottom of the barrel shit to expect from S2.
Man, that sucks.
Out of entire two years worth of semen I'd expect the climax scene to be pictured like those type of scenes in your typicall H-series with cum flewing all around outside, lel.
Yeah, but just think about how terrible the voice acting for lina and zelgadis for the first coupple episodes, not to mention having to listen to amelia and xellos the rest of the time
>he becomes pretty much her only friend she can open up to, you can see where this is going to go
Not to dispute the accuracy of the rest of that, but Asuna and her become best friends, at Rika's expense.
Is there more NTR-teasing coming up in Season 2? The show may not be perfect but it brings new NTR doujins by the bucket load.
its a fuckin fps right? he better die
hell everyone should die repeatedly thats what makes it fun
As bad as the first season
already shows no promise of improving
>Is there more NTR-teasing coming up in Season 2?
As in, Asuna gets NTR'd or new girl falls in love with Kirito only to find out he already has a girlfriend?
Because the latter happens pretty much every arc.
Not gonna lie - not the biggest fan of creampies. I don't like having the thought of "Wow, guys, you should go clean that shit up with a mop" flit through my mind. It's a bit offputting.
While that is all true, it's kinda funny to think that the villain of the next arc is even more hax and ridiculous. USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA!
It's going to be better than SaO since GGO is one of the best arcs and the studio has experience adapting the setting under their belt now. In all honesty, Kirito is a very tolerable guy when Asuna isn't around.
Fun fact: the best thing that came out of SAO is Halkegenia Online.
>Last Villain of Alicization
>Can win a gun game bare-handed
>Eats people's souls
Remember, anon: He's not EATING people's souls; he's LIBERATING them.
Didn't he learn how to use the Incarnate System just by touching Kirito?
Is that what we call it, when Americans do it?
Reminds me of "Peace Keeping"
I thought it was called "sending them to the Shadow Realm". Or was that when you cut peoples' legs off with buzzsaws?
Is that long haired fag Kirito? I hoped S2 would have all new cast
GGO is still pretty bad, but notably better than the other arcs.
It's pretty sad because it's SAO's best arc.
Sinon is still best girl though.
GGO's cast is about wide and varied as either cour of SAO S1 was.
There's Kirito, Sinon, Sinon's creepy friend, and then the villains. There's also Kikouka and Nurse Aki
Then various background characters, and such, but it's not like the story ever pretends any of them are important.
SAO S2 will cater to the COD and Battlefield audiences
I wouldn't be shocked if the anime didn't have 360 noscopes, killstreaks, and weapons that overpower everybody
>I wouldn't be shocked if the anime didn't have
I bet you could also care less.
Is Kirito's waifu going to be in the series at all, or did their fling end?
>weapons that overpower everybody
Nearly everyone from S1 is pushed into "Side-Character" status. Though, he's still with Asuna, so yeah...
>their "fling" ending
You will never rule over a virtual reality world with your loyal waifu as deities for over 200 years.
Guys I'm serious
....what's the plot after the second part of SAO?
I mean...they die in real life if they die in the game
then they had to rescue Asuna
...Now it's just about a dude who plays video games for fun, meets some lesbian, and a bunch of bitches want the main character's dick for no real reason other then wanting his dick.
>meets some lesbian
SOLD! can't wait for GGO
She ends up wanting his dick too
These are/will be best girls in whole series.
Eh? I don't think anyone after the second arc wants Kirito's dick, other than Maybe Ronye, or Alice (if the Light novel goes that route)
In the recent ova, they still all seem to want it
I mean, no characters afterwards.
Though, Silica and Lisbeth are more-or-less over it.
I still don't understand why Silica wants it, considering that she seemed to like him in a sort of "big brother" kind of way, or something. Though, I guess the fact that Kirito gave get a ring meant for lovers (without being the least bit aware of his actions) may have had something to do with it.
What? I was turned on the more and more they talked about how they learned to instantly kill people by cutting their heads off quickly, or when they were talking about decapitating Kirito and Eugeo for a promotion.
Every thread needs this. This shall be S2 ending
>“Heart rate is dropping!”
>“Start chest compressions!”
>“No… no… Kirito-kun… not something like this…”
>Kirito-kun, it’s a lie, right? You aren’t going to leave me, right? You said we’ll be together forever…… didn’t you say that?
>The pink heart displayed on the monitor throbbed slightly once, before it stopped pulsing.
>implying they're not all still madly in love with him
>I wonder where they can go after this, if they even decide to make another season. Like, swords, guns, magic, what other mmo stereotipical gametypes are there
After guns, they hang around in fairies for a side story and another short arc. And that's the last 'game' so far.
Longass arc after that is a hardcore-simulationist medieval life sim that is accelerated to 1000x timeflow and all humans are disembodied real souls and it escalates into total war and is the setup for potentially going Full Cyberpunk after.
Alice is already showing heavy signs of wanting his dick in Alicization Dividing.
Web Novel theoretical end.
>Eh? I don't think anyone after the second arc wants Kirito's dick, other than Maybe Ronye, or Alice (if the Light novel goes that route
They all want him but know that they can't beat Asuna.
>They all want him but know that they can't beat Asuna.
Apparently Alice didn't get the memo then.
Has she? I don't think so. She gives him a napkin, but that just seems like her being polite, to me.
She only agreed to help, so she can see the sister that was torn from her memories.
Yeah, the girls from S1, but after that, it's mostly all just speculation on whether or not Sinon likes him, right? Same for Ronye and Alice. (I like to think of the Web Novel and Light Novel as separate canons all-together.)
SAO-part and picrelated. The resemblance is striking. Look at them eyes.
if the GGO part is true I'm thinking about being gay. Moar?
I don't think she's quite fallen in love with Kirito yet, but the story is pretty much shoving her as hard as it can that way.
>it's mostly all just speculation on whether or not Sinon likes him, right
She hasn't confirmed it, but I don't think anybody would be surprised at all if she did.
>it's mostly all just speculation on whether or not Sinon likes him, right?
She damn near demands he marry her. Twice. One of which is definitely going to be in the upcoming season. The other one is in Caliber and is less direct, but they do flirt an awful lot in that one.
And we're going to hear in to Sawashiro's voice.
>the story is pretty much shoving her as hard as it can that way
Pretty sure that's just left-over from the Web Novel.
Similar to how Kirito was pretty fucking relaxed in ALO, despite the fact Asuna was getting married in a week. In the Web Novel, Sugou wasn't getting married to her for another month or so, so Kirito should have had plenty of time, and it was less urgent.
Reki didn't feel like changing his writing to take into account some of these changes...
Well, asked a friend on this, and his response is:
>If you consider rivalry, teasing and being annoyed at someone to infinity, then yes. Otherwise, I don't remember any serious hints.
What? Does she? Huh?
And the Caliber thing was her teasing him and his "harem".
Sinon and Kirito would make a great couple. Man, all that back and forth flirting and teasing would be so fun to watch.
Goddammit why is Asuna so fucking boring? She's not even bad waifu material, just REALLY FUCKING BORING.
>What? Does she? Huh?
The translation got removed but it's when they're hiding and have their deep PTSD talk, and she's like "If you care so much, then take care of me for the rest of my life!", which is not explicitly a proposal but has that strong connotation, coming after she's opened up to him a lot.
>And the Caliber thing was her teasing him and his "harem".
Their banter is a lot like Kirito with Liz, except Liz is the cheerful kind of girl you expect that from, whereas Sinon is the quiet smart girl type, so Sinon's snark is better and they just have better chemistry. And that great "Promise to think of me every time you draw this blade". We know Liz wants him, so seeing him and Sinon flirt even harder is fun.
>Goddammit why is Asuna so fucking boring? She's not even bad waifu material, just REALLY FUCKING BORING.
I dunno man, her being yandere is pretty amusing to me.
I forgot to add: >>100671544
>>If you consider rivalry, teasing and being annoyed at someone to infinity, then yes. Otherwise, I don't remember any serious hints.
Kirito does that to all of them in the books. Constantly. What was the phrase the threads here used to use... "hilarious jackass"? Part of the crime of the anime is that it all got cut out, and so did almost all his narrating MMO mechanics. That's like 80% of his personality.
That's real fucken nito
I expect more cancer to /a/.
Expectations? -Reads light novels- OK, this arc has melodrama, shit happening that didnt need to happen and should have stayed in SAO, same ending as fairy arc- saving someone IRL, deux ex machina again...
You know what, truth be told, if the series didnt have such great animation and if any other studio picked this up, it would be lost on peoples minds already.
What if they eventually change it to a racing game tho...
Kirito is now speed racer. Eh goes f4st and doesn't afraid of anything
Also he doesn't have a car. He just holds a broken gearstick like a sword and repeatedly swings it the ground, causing his run speed to glitch out.
It's all amusing. Though, I don't think it proves, or hints too much, at her liking him.
However, I can kinda see their relationship getting a lot closer (closer than Asuna even,), if Asuna ends up separating from him somehow (not likely)
Wouldn't an inmmersive online version of like, Need for Speed be cool though? It would be like having your own high performance car in real life, you have to take care of it and tune it and maintain everything, but you could go 100 fast and not worry about getting shreked. Your car would get totalled, and you'd have to get a new one and all that jazz, but you wouldn't be dead. Id play the shit out of a game like that
>if Asuna ends up separating from him somehow (not likely)
You're better off fanwanking some OOC bullshit for the SAO crew in the AW era.
Can't wait to read about how Leafa was penetrated by hundreds of "spears and swords"
>Expectations, criticisms, opinions
You'll only find flames here, /a/ isn't the right place for valid criticism and discussion.
We can discuss best girls though.
There are a lot of people who aren't like this, though, and are quite serious (some of which, are on this thread)
I like how many times this thread has changed subject
Just like the series in question.
Lets talk about serial experiments: lain. Now that's one weird fucking anime
Hasn't the whole thread just been generally about stuff after the anime?
It's like it's 2000 all over again.
R u high m8 it's 2013 I can use facebook on my 2DS XL the future is now
Anybody who goes into this looking for faults is going to have a field day and proclaim it shit very easily. At the very least, him being able to disintegrate boolets with his lightsaber is given a perfectly reasonable explanation. Anybody who is just watching it to enjoy the story and fights will have a good time.
I just don't know why some people watch things just for the sake of finding errors, it's autistic as fuck.
Literally half the posts here about season one were from people who did just that. I expect season two to be treated the same.
What's worse is most of the faults they found were simply things that weren't explained 100% in the anime and only a fault because they assumed the way it worked was a fault, when in fact the way it actually worked was completely the opposite and not a fault.
I don't know, it's very common here to have bias when watching something, and claiming it's shit without even giving the show a chance.
Personal bias is bad, and so is hype.
If possible, you should watch a series with absolutely no expectations, and enjoy it for what it is.
