QUOTE (Klyern @ Nov 12 2014, 01:55 PM)Lawl at you pulling out that old meme from extinction to reference the trap episode xD

But meh I did always like skuld more than beldandi, on a side note i always wondered why there was no oh my goddess joke or reference in To Arlol SAO and Star Wars are similar after all, ok in my case i prefer both Urds ;p...
by ep'19 PV i wonder if its new loli is Zekken, Asuna's hot mom will debut too

Okay you know I was joking about Yuuki having a certain terminal illness here when they were talking about her, but I was shocked to see that they actually used it.


In any case I get this feeling that you might be right with how Asuna might try and have Kirito use his machine for Yuuki though. I mean it is feasible though, but will he allow it to be used other than his daughter though?

after all he lost to Yūki, she's like a sister to Asuna too (shoulder webcam) xD...

QUOTE (Fdraven @ Apr 2 2015,10:44 AM)that would be a nice surprise!no S3 yet a film is confirmed, at least it'll be an Original story instead of recap...
by its PV I doubt that'll be a prologue of Progressive, Alternative or Alicization

Wild guess it might have something to do with the PSP/Vita game(s) I take it?

Saw the movie tonight and was a bit shocked to see how packed the theater was. I think there were 2-3 people that had to stand in the back for the movie as they couldn't find seats.

Before the movie though, my god. They had brief introductions from LiSa and the voice actors for Asuna and Kirito, which wouldn't be anything to really comment on except for the fact that they really just droned on unnecessarily. You'd think it was about to end and then they keep on talking when all you want is for the movie to start.

Anyway, the actual movie itself. It was fine.

The main story/conflict was actually pretty dumb and I was often just thinking "why?" to myself. I'd use specifics, but can't figure out spoilers in this new forum. Anyway, at least the actions scenes were very entertaining, especially the finale fight scene. They decided to just engineer a way to throw nearly every slightly-prominent character from both seasons into that fight scene and it was super exciting.

thanx for the heads-up Barbo :0 it's been a while, I don't expect much knowing this is an 'original story' instead off LNs... yet as movie by your opinion i'm glad that animation improved, i'll try to go watch it (GitS live'action then why not):lol:

the only two moives I like to check out are the SAO Movie and the Heaven's Feel movie.
agreed on HF, but SA0 Movie and this GG0 spinoff don't convince me much -_-

After watching the first 3 episodes of SAO Alternative, this kind of gives the whole GGO more of a backstory in general now. To some not having Kirito and the gang here can be either a good or bad thing, but it isn't always about them anyways though if you ask me. Seeing that LLEN in her child form only makes it where her adorableness really sticks out for her character though.

yep liked eps 2-3's tall hottie IRL more ^^ so BoB is prior this story, i wouldn't mind to see if she or Kiriko is faster... as ep.4 happens right after#1 by its plot twist, her idol concert and Pito-chan busy the same day? what a coincidence!;)

Apparently the BoB or should I say the GGO arc happened before the Alternative storyline. Oh and apparently in the Fatal Bullet game storyline you kind of meld the Alternative crew and Main crew via your create a mook and assistant though. I haven't gotten that far into the game but apparently LLEN, M and, Pito are involved. I guess it was a way to promote the Alternative members.

a FB special or 0VA would be cool like this SJ climax, as now makes sense how these 'G.I.Janes' befriend Llenn in ep'1 end... so #5 telling by M's panic Pitohui is the main villain here, unless it was exaggeration for his(?) masochism IRL :p

I'm getting this vibe that Pito was one of the SAO survivors and probably started playing on GGO to feel that rush again. Also, I think she wrote that not to M just to make sure he didn't chicken out on LLEN since she would most likely kill him out of game I take it. Although, I think she would do it too or go up to that point of tormenting him of course.

i guess you're right telling by the title in next week, yet i don't discard that she Is (or related to) Llenn's idol IRL... with ep'5.5 OP SFX and 'bloopers' I'm afraid they'll recap arcs, no wonder why as spin'off didn't convince me at first :angry:

also I bet he found Llenn IRL because of a fanletter for her idol, another hint I suspect she's Pito :/ not SA0 survivor... so finally Fuka's loli avatar debuts in ep 7 as partner, this time to fight M and his crush starting 2nd squad·jam soon!:eek:
