I, and probably good half of /a/, will watch this only because of her. Though, now looking at those designs, guns "mite b cool" too.

DEATH GUN IS STERBEN AKA SHINKAWA SHOICHI, OLDER BROTHER OF SHINKAWA KYOUJI AKA SPIEGEL WHO IS FRIEND OF SINON.

They kill people using drug in real life while death gun shoots them in game to make it look like he kills people through game.

I dropped this around ep12, but let me clarify this. He escaped from one death-trap MMO and defeated the generic villain, then entered another one to escape again and defeat the generic villain again, and now will enter again to escape again and kill another generic villain? Why it's always MMO? Why he keeps doing this? Why this garbage is so popular?

Otakus love Kirito because it's easy to insert themselves into him. SAO is a wish-fulfillment pandering slop of shit. That's why it's popular.

It's really too bad the author made story changes from the web novel to light novel. In the web novel, Kirito lost to Sinon, but that got changed in the published version.

I hope we get ALO Sinon / Caliber SS too.

>>101684341
He does, no need to watch it then.

>>101684531
The scene where he cut her bullet even though they were only 10 meters apart from each other and she already had her fingers on the trigger made me throw my e-reader against the floor.
Luckily it survived.
>>
>>101684341
Kirito has broken powers but honestly he's not that broken. Kirito uses the lightsaber thing but we find out that the previous champion basically used CQC and stole people's weapons to win. So he was even more bullshit tier than Kirito.
>>
>>101684680
>dodging and punching is more bullshit than CUTTING BULLETS
Sure, sure.
>>
>>101684627
I don't understand why he has to asspull for Kirito. I don't think there was that big of issue with him losing to her in the original version. Then again knowing elevens' tastes I guess the self-insert losing can't be allowed.
>>
>>101684680
That dude was some trained veteran in real life and sneaked up on his targets due to experience.
That's totally different from what Kirito is doing.

>>101684680
>>101684746
That guy later appears in Alicization (in the web-novels) and can eat people's souls.
It's not fair to compare Kirito to him.

He's a 'Murican sociopathic mercenary who murdered his fiance, and gets off on killing.
When he enters Alicization, he learns he can eat people's souls and learn what they know, and is immune to basically all damage (Except Sinon's rifle, because Guns are the only thing he believes are able to hurt him.)

Eugeo has the Mother-Fucking Jedi force at the end of Volume 13, and Alice straight up called it "the incarnating arm"

Well, in the Web Novel version of SAO, Alicization ended with everyone in the world learning about Underworld, and all the AI, who are basically human.

For the two to be connected, this has to NOT happen. Unless everyone in Accel World had their memories wiped.

"Super rare", in the sense that it's given to people have a very long play time, in the Seed. (Kirito happens to have 2 years straight.. soooo...)
It's not like it even has an affect on the plot, aside from getting him an excuse to interact with Sinon.

What's it feel like knowing this will never be animated SAO fags

The instant Asuna’s feet reached the ground outside the wagon a sword came striking at her. Asuna parried the blow on reflex, and thought the strike was powerful. Sparks flew and it took Asuna three chained hits to negate the attack completely with her rapier. A blonde beauty glared at Asuna, with anger flashed like lightning in her eyes. Ronie and Teiza hastily asked Alice to stop fighting, Asuna wasn’t a enemy. Asuna was confused for a moment there why was the AI both sides IRL are after holds such enmity for her, but that was dispelled as soon as Alice spoke. Alice asked who Asuna is, and why did she approach Kirito? Asuna threw away all other emotions, reflexively raging anger swelled up inside her. In response, Asuna replied:

“’Why’? Because he’s mine.”

>>101682082
He was asked by Kikouka to make contact with a figure who somehow is connected with a couple mysterious deaths.
He's not a "super secret agent", just because he's asked to do a favor by him.
The only reason Kirito is going in, and not some cop, is because there isn't even any proof the guy is connected, and they only know about him through internet rumors.

For the ones who already know what is gonna happen, will this season be good? i mean the first one started great but went to shit quite fast so i wonder if i should finish watching the first season to watch the second one.
>>
>>101691516
GGO had everything going for it, but Reki still managed to fuck it up. It's still better than SAO or ALO, though. I just hope you're used to Kirito's bullshit.

I would finished it for Sugu, since she makes a few appearances in the second season.

>“Are… are you all right?”
>After lowering my sight at that hoarse voice, I saw Alice gripping tightly onto the golden chain with her free hand and looking up at me with a somewhat pale face. That expression gave off an unexpectedly childish impression and made me want to pretend I was falling against my better judgement, but killed that thought, knowing this wasn’t the place for it.
>“I’m fine… I think.”
>Casually giving a signal with my right hand, I chanted the art again and brought forth a new piton. Driving it into the next gap I could see overhead with plenty of strength, I climbed up with the same process as earlier. While embracing a modest sense of accomplishment over finally advancing, though it was merely two meters, I called out to Alice below.
>“Alright, looks like it works! Like what I did, come up that first piton… no, that metal rod.”
>However, the integrity knight remained still while looking up at me. Her lips made a small movement before long and a faint voice reached me.
>“…an’t.”
>“Hah? What did you say?”
>“…I can’t, that’s what!”
>“No… no, you can. With that strength of yours, pulling your own body up would be…”

I imagine this'll be a summer show. The question is whether it's 1 cour or 2.
>>
>>101692329
If GGO only, 1.
Asuna's volume added won't warrant a second cour.
And they messed Caliber up with the first season, so I dunno what they will do.
>>
>>101692386
They could do a flashback episode. You might be able to stretch GGO into the second cour a bit, then Rosario and Caliber might be enough to fill a season.
>>
>>101692386
They MIGHT do a flashback episode to fill in Tonkii.
In that case, they can do,
>Phantom Bullet
>Tonkii
>Caliber
>Mother's Rosario
>Volume 9, Interlude 1. Kirito Dies
>>
>>101679995
Are they going to have Kirito's usual VA put on as girly a voice as he can or are they casting a female seiyuu for his GGO avatar?
>>
>>101692555
>Volume 9, Interlude 1. Kirito Dies
That would be amazing. And then Underworld arc never gets adapted.
>>
>>101692678
They'll animate it regardless. I just hope they hold off on it, and let anime-only fans cry a few years.
>>
>>101692555
They would need to include the second prologue in that case.
And that's quite long, nearly 100 pages of technical talk with Shino and Asuna.
Or they keep if for a flashback again.
>>
Is there any mecha in GGO, also>>101680000
who is the guy with the blue/white/grey gear?
>>
And how many eps do you think GGO will be?
>>
>>101692838
They could do flashback. Or they could try to trim the conversation down. They'd have to include some parts of it, as Interlude II alone is too short for an episode. (if I recall correctly)
>>
>>101692910
Yeah, Interlude 2 is only them leaving the cafe and getting attacked.
>>
>>101692855

ペイルライダー

Can I ask most anon here what is your motivation to read the rest of this story? I kinda dropped the series back when Alicization started getting translated and speed watched the anime just to get to the action bits.
So is Alicization better than the previous arcs or are you people here to see how it all ends?
also is re-written ver of the story worth looking at ( progression was it called?)
>>
>>101685700
>Doesn't affect the plot
>Leads him to interact with a female that is deathly scared of boys and when she learns he a boy freaks out and sets up their characters developments

yep totally not apart of the plot
>>
>>101695853
I'll start by saying Progressive isn't a "rewrite". It's just another novel line-up, that takes place in the Aincrad arc, and follows the progression of the front-lines, as they clear each floor. I've liked it so-far, but there isn't any translator to even finish the first book.

Alicization, I have also enjoyed, and it's probably my favorite arc so far (though, it's kind of split into several mini-arcs.
>>
>>101696016
I meant that it doesn't really affect his ability to play. It was just a gimik to set this part up.
>>
>>101695853
Alicization is kind of better but it is pretty pantsu on head retarted sometimes.
Even more than the previous arcs.
If you are able to tolerate a lot of bullshit then I'm sure you will enjoy this arc.

>>101680394

I was about to drop GGO cause the start of the book felt like a repeat of the plots from the other books. heck I kinda enjoy Mother's Rosario cause the focus was different

Really not looking forward to it. /ak/ threads here are fine and there's always a new Gate chapter or something it seems.

/ak/ threads on /k/ are full of autists who just spam the same upotte pics every thread.
>>
>>101696574
If you want a different focus, Alicization should work perfectly then.
Unless you want more Asuna, in which case, you'll hate Alicization. (Except for the 3 mini-chapters she's in)
>>
Is Asuna in GGO or is this story just about sturito having misunderstandings with some skanks?
>>
>>101697071
Asuna doesn't enter GGO.
Sinon mistakes Kirito for a girl, but ends up hating him after she finds out he's not. They sort of compete, but there really isn't any kind of romance or feelings between the two.
>>
>>101697071
>sturito having misunderstandings with some skanks?

I guess that's pretty accurate. There's pretty much only one female that ever shows up in this arc though.
>>
>>101697265
Of course, the only misunderstanding is about his gender.
>>
>>101697204
>>101697265
Any Sugus?

I really only am going to watch this for PLOT so am I going to be disappointed?

If by Sugus you mean Suguha, No
If by Sugus you mean Boobs, probably not.
If by Sugus you mean Ass, most likely.

Every other character gets sidelined hard.

Enjoy your trap Kirito and Sawashiro best girl.
>>
>>101697204
>They sort of compete, but there really isn't any kind of romance or feelings between the two
Is that why she has to practically hold in her gushing wetness when they meet at the cafe in Alicization Beginning?
>>
>>101697514
>>101697523
Well if there's a lot of ass I guess I'm in.

Aside from gratuitous angles and short shorts is there anything of note from the LN's?
>>
I like how Kirito can solve a quest for which no solution was yet coded by the game company. His ability to use his "willpower" to ignore game rules, situations, or essentially rewrite the game effects is pretty hax. He's able to chain several sets of combo moves into just one turn and have those moves, attacks, and effects take place before you can continue your started turn even though you were the one to start the turn technically. That means a spell that delivers its effect over a period of time (like one second) is now forced to deliver all of its effects in a fraction of a second as well as finish its mandatory global cooldown so that the next combo effects spell can start and finish.
>>
>>101697619
Only female cast I think we'll be seeing from this arc is Sinon, with some Nurse Aki, and a couple scenes with the previous cast.

Not sure how they'll do the second part (if there is a second part)
>>
>>101697770
>I like how Kirito can solve a quest for which no solution was yet coded by the game company.

What quest?
>>
That's one of the things that bothers me about how SAO moves forward. Asuna goes from the shy quiet girl that almost wants to give up living at the start of SAO, to a confident officer in the raid guild, brave, etc.

Then she gets turned into the damsel in the tower for ALO.

Then she's basically barely heard from again after that? Never goes with Kirito into any of these future investigations or whatever? While Kirito cheats on her with successive girls each new arc?
>>
>>101697770
>I like how Kirito can solve a quest for which no solution was yet coded by the game company
Happened one time, and it was cheating anyways. (didn't even "pass the quest")

>His ability to use his "willpower" to ignore game rules, situations, or essentially rewrite the game effects is pretty hax
This happens multiple times through out the series, by characters other than Kirito. Before Alicization, Kirito does anything to this effect, a total of 2 times (maybe 3, if you want to say him resisting gravity magic counts), and 1 time after Alicization, a world in which EVERYONE does this.

>He's able to chain several sets of combo moves into just one turn
He does this once in the whole series, and says that he almost never gets it right when he tries to do this.

>and have those moves, attacks, and effects take place before you can continue your started turn even though you were the one to start the turn technically.
What?

>That means a spell that delivers its effect over a period of time (like one second) is now forced to deliver all of its effects in a fraction of a second as well as finish its mandatory global cooldown so that the next combo effects spell can start and finish

In GGO, you can have personal armor that resists 0.50 caliber sniper rifle hits. I assume that if Kirito wears it, he'll still be able to dodge and use his lightsaber with his usual speed.

The author's writing style is to ignore logic problems. If the problem is not acknowledged to exist, then it is not a problem. And a lot of the readers won't notice or care about such technicalities anyways. The light novels and anime were not created for the same fanbase as Detective Conan.
>>
>>101698231
>The author's writing style is to ignore logic problems. If the problem is not acknowledged to exist, then it is not a problem

you got it wrong anon, he goes into too much logic that he ends up making people question tons of other things and he can't think of all the details thus some things go without explanation.

if you truly think thats the issue then it probably means you only watched the anime which is a Bad adaptation instead of reading the novels
>>
>>101698231
>you can have personal armor that resists 0.50 caliber sniper rifle hits
Where is this from?

And Kirito already knew where she was going to shoot before she pulled the trigger, so all he had to do was put the sword in the way of the bullet, and it would be over.
>>
Alizication united volume 14 is called

>>101698360
This.
The author half-asses the technical explanations and leaves the readers hanging which is the cause for all these Frodos.

If he had just said, "a techno-wizard did it" nobody would ask any questions. But he has to say "microwaves fry their brains" and then people start questioning things.

the point is, he goes into details how the process works and you can't stop it, but of course Frodo's will try and come up with hundreds of ways to avert the situation which is fine, but then again, if that happened then we wouldn't have any story right.

the author could have simply said, it has a fail safe mechanism which uses magic that kills its user if tampered with (without giving anything else)

is sound like a case of being a smart-ass. Where he tries to use technical term or his wiki-level knowledge for his explanation. But in-face with people who have some actual knowledge in the field the writer looks like a fucking idiot. I mean last SAO thread, I remember some anon explain how his uses of AIDS was limited or something alone those lines.

Also I feel like the adults in this series are very incompetent

you mean they try to argue, but really if the author hadnt tried going into so much details, the story would have been better for those people.

I appreciate him going into so much details when explaining things or Kiritos thought process, but it makes other people go autistic about things and later other series that do need explaining get scot free

So you would rather he did no research at all, and just said, "Yuuki's sick. That's why she has to stay in this room 24/7. But we can't tell you what she has", or "NerveGear magically destroys your brain," and that's it?

The technical aspects are pretty logical, I would say.
>>
>>101699328
hardly, he explained the basics of things with many details, he aint an electrician to know all the logic details he might miss, nor an engineer, he is a writer, of course it is his duty to at least inform himself to be able to write a more believable story, but when you have thousands of people questioning and looking for any nook or crany they can to find flaws looking at your work, of course some things wont make much sense logically.

>>101699509
It can magically detect that the helmet is being manhandled and makes a pizza pop.
>>
>>101699525
the helmets, how they have a failsafe that if tampered they fry your brain etc.

then later Frodos started with theories like >>101699509, using EMP's etc etc etc and that was just episode 1
>>
>>101699509
Pretty sure because no one wanted to be responsible for the death of 10k people?
You release one person, someone else takes his place. Or is that to hard to fathom?

Not to mention, I'm sure there are straps and such to secure it on your head. Removing them will likely activate the process.
Any tampering at all resulted in a death.

>>101699625
He never went into details about HOW it kills you though. He only ever said that it has a powerful electromagnet, which could theoretically kill you.
I doubt it needs to cook your brain.

One theory would probably be that it destroys the information in your brain, as in the web novel, it was said that removing the helmet left you in a comatose state.

>in the Web Novel version of SAO, Alicization ended with everyone in the world learning about Underworld, and all the AI, who are basically human.
>For the two to be connected, this has to NOT happen.
Yep. There's other stuff too, like the robots, and Yui being accepted as a true AI, and Kirito pretty much dropping his old plans to study augmented reality implants in the US. It's wildly divergent from what Accel World's backhistory would be, and foundational parts of some of those have already gone to print.

IMO the author ditched any old plans about SAO and AW being the same continuity way back. I think he's attached to the characters and concepts in SAO, knows that they don't quite fit in AW, and will instead write another SAO arc.

How come the die hard fans of SAO never read the light novels but the haters read it?

> cuz they know the truth of how shitty it is

Really? Cause 85% of the time, it's the other way around.
>>
>>101704399
its the other way around, if the haters know so much of the story its because they keep getting corrected all the time by the people that do know the story hence, they seem to know alot about the story.

hell the haters already know all the spoilers for the upcoming anime as well.

>I doubt it needs to cook your brain.
>One theory would probably be that it destroys the information in your brain, as in the web novel, it was said that removing the helmet left you in a comatose state.

It wouldn't take much to kill someone. Consider http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cerebral_aneurysm#Rupture : one <10mm rupture in one blood vessel in the brain, 60% instant death rate.

The author certainly never clarified how it kills you.
Kirito merely mentions the existence of a electromagnet, but the method of killing is never elaborated on. Not even what the symptoms or effects are.

The interpretation of the Progressive Manga artist shows Diavel spazzing before his heart flat-lines, and he dies. It also has smoke sizzling out of his head...
Of course, most of the Progressive manga has a lot of changes from canon, for one reason or another.

In all, we don't know the method of death, which is really all the author needs to keep from us.

I wasn't trying for a definitive explanation of exactly how it kills, just pointing out that it's not as implausible as the screaming frodotrolls insisted a few months back. It doesn't have to directly fry everything, just do the kind of damage that escalates on its own.

(Also when reading that page, I assumed it was Asuna's imagination of how it was happening, since it was shaded differently)
>>

I know what you were going for. I was just saying that any explanation works, really.
There are an unlimited number of possible ways for an electromagnet that close to your brain, to assure death, instantly. So it's very plausible for either idea to be used. Hell, for all we know, the NerveGear utilizes multiple ways to assure death.

And yeah, that scene could just be her imagining it.

For fucks sake. People ban kinder eggs because some stupid kid choke on the toy but when a vitual game is developed that can also kill they don't ban it.
>>

kinder eggs were banned in murrica only, any other country knows that if a child chokes with one of those little toys, even when it's clearly specified that it could happen, and that you shouldn't give them to kids younger than 3 years old, then it's the fucking fathers fault.

not like not banning the microwave helmets is a bad idea either.
