I actually decided to look it up and it says that she's 16 in this arc. I'm not sure that's any better though...
Deends where you live.
Here's a question: why is Kirito back to using is SAO avatar?
Because he's Kirito, that's why.
Another question: why does Asuna allow the harem to hang around Kirto? Is it like some kind of supremacy thing?
Why is the harem even still a thing? Kirito and Asuna being a couple is a known fact in their circle of friends! Even when Shinon, the newcomer, shows obvious affection towards Kirito he makes no attempt to say, "I'm seeing someone, please stop."
Exactly. Hell, even Asuna didn't seem all that phased by it, and she was right-freaking-there! Hell, even Yui, someone who I thought would call Shinon out, didn't do anything.
Now that I think about it, did Kirito ever mention dating Asuna to Shinon? Kind of a dick move if he didn't.
I don't think so...I mean, it even took him awhile to admit his gender in GGO, and that under certain circumstances at that. I can only assume that the other girls filled her in at the Harem Initiation Ceremony.
SAO is kinda messed up i you stop to think about it.
Yeah. I don't think the creators were anticipating people to actually think about SAO.
To put it frankly, Kirito is an idiot in the love/ flirt/ romance department. He's brilliant everywhere else... just not there. As for Asuna not doing anything about it... She does in the light novels when it comes to Sinon. As for the other's... I don't recall a situation where Kirito and one of those girls have been alone after he and Asuna started going out, so I'm pretty sure Asuna has a tight watch on what's going on... and its also a good thing to trust your significant other? Just sayin'.
I've played Hollow Fragment, and he's just as stupid when it comes to affection in the game. He is more in love with the video games than people.
I liked this mini arc for Asuna, but SAO surely lost its light.
About the Harem thing. I guess they are a really modern couple *they are from the future as well ç.ç*
Even though they both love each other, they don't see it as if they had possession over themselves.
It can be painful to have friends that you got a crush on, but if your friendship is more important is possible to be civil about it.
What is more strange to me is that Asuna is still going on dates with arranged guys to get married, even though she is already married to Kirito and we just got in the second season that arranged marry with the guy that hijacked her mind.
Her mum is dumb. But anyway, the book goes into better detail about it all.
As for it losing it's light, it'll lose all of the light that you know of when they do SAO3 which they probably will because Mother's Rosario leads right into it. For SAO3, aka Underworld, is set in a world with new characters. Kirito is the only one who returns for this. The others aren't even really mentioned, except for Asuna for reasons I won't spoil. I know it brings more light onto the facts of SAO and possibly PoH, but it's unknown yet. I haven't read LN 14 or 15 so idk. It's a theory though. Course, it's also thought the old cast will be brought back into the picture for a war of some-sort. It should be more interesting. Just take GGO as a small scale to the big picture, Calibur and Mother's Rosario as small stories that have a big impact emotionally on character's decisions later on.
I'm... not exactly sure how I feel about the newest episode. :\
Y'know...for all the crap that I give this series...this last episode was actually kinda good. Sure, some things were stretched, but I actually feel that this is one of the season's best episodes. I'm now at least a tiny bit interested on what happens next...
Latest episode was... okay... They missed a lot of things. Wow, so this is what happens when you read a book before its release in motion picture... Now I know why I hated people that do that... I feel like a prick... Anyway, Next week I may just have to do something cause I will NOT be a happy camper.
I actually understand that sort of mentality. For one thing, I really got shit on by fans of the novels last week because I didn’t care the episode. They were upset because I didn’t feel obligated to read the book. I’m like that with some books myself, but I learned that they are two different canons and they can go on to do their own thing. And because one strays away from the source material, that doesn’t make it bad, it just makes it different. What makes something bad shouldn’t be how well it’s adapted, but how well it’s presented in that particular format.
Who knows; maybe if I decided to read the book, there’s a possibility that I might buy into all this “sadness porn” during these last few episodes. But even if that doesn’t happen, it won’t change my feelings towards the episode that much because of that added knowledge. I still take the show for what it is.
They are different canons. I love them both. The theme and way its told is the exact same. One you just have to depict with seeing their faces for their emotions which can in itself make it more enjoyable because you don't know exactly 100% what they are thinking or feeling. As for the light novels, you get to read what they are feeling and what not but the visual impression isn't as grand. More detail, less visual. Both are good of course, I love them both. I'm sure if I read the Manga I would love that too.
I can also understand how readers of the light novels would be someone dicks about how you feel during the episode. They got more emotions from Asuna that aren't flat out told to you. It shouldn't matter though.
I'd say give the LN a shot. They are good in their own right. Of course, it's not required. You just get more dialogue and emotions being thrown at you. There are some extra scenes that aren't in the anime but it's okay cause they are minor. For example, before Asuna confronts her mother to talk in the virtual world, the novel says that she logged into Erika and flew her over to the home to sit in a chair and wait there for her mother to log into that account. Then she did the same with her Undine account. After that she goes to her mothers and confronts her about the entire situation, but the scene isn't THAT important. It just makers the moment deeper, as a book is supposed to do.
Regardless, I love both the anime and the light novels. Which ever you choose, as long as its SAO, I'll be happy. It is one of my favorite series after all.
My heart is broken after that episode.
Well... That was pretty sad.
