The much anticipated start of VRMMO melodrama Sword Art Online 2, now shifted to the new setting of Gun Gale Online, has been met with approval despite it being mostly filled with exposition to set up the plot for the rest of the series – and does at least lavish much time on Asuna to hold fans over until Kirito‘s new avatar is finally revealed…

    you know reality sucks when you get stuck living in a VRMMO and after finally escaping, you dive into another one.

    It's just like certain soldiers who've escaped the horrors of war. They may re-enlist because it's all they know and all they feel they are good for.

    BadGuy: "Kirito, I'm your father! Now give me back my f*cking lightsaber already, and I'll show you how this sh*t is done!"

    He's the protagonist of an anime called "SWORD" Art Online, so he's going to use a sword in a friggin FPS and win against these supposed "pros".

    Why? Because Gary Stu, that's why.

    Swords do exist in GGO as seen in the ending. Even though the VRMMORPG "Gun Gale Online" is based upon the "Sword Art Online" game engine. Since Kirito's specialty is wielding double swords may carry over to GGO and he will most likely wield two guns.

    And that makes him less of a "screw the rules Kirito can't have any imperfections" because what?

    Kawahara has been giving Kirito illogical hax ever since Eincrad and the only enemy he had ever shown any real difficulties in fighting is the friggin game creator himself(read: more haxes). Does that make him any less of a Gary Stu? No.

    Gary Stu is the male counterpart of Mary Sue, which is kind of fictional character archetype that is most of the time depicted as basically "too perfect", or if it has any flaws, they are meant to make the audience feel sympathy for the characters. Mary Sues are known for having "overpowered" special powers, talents and for being liked by everyone inside their fictional worlds.

    Out of curiosity, what parts? Because I've played a few MMOs now and nothing has stuck out at me as especially out of place for MMO mechanics when put into the context of a VR world.

    Did you see all the cake Kirito was stuffing in?
    He must really be tired of Asuna's sandwiches by now :P

    Female Avatars are cool!
    They are fun to look at and ummm, "USE", to.
    I can see why kirito changed to a girl Avatar.

    Hey that's just being realistic, cause, most MMO players use female avatars.

    Kirito in GGO remind me of a little bit of Tifa + Vincent from Final Fantasy VII Crisis Core

    Any hints as to whether or not they're going to explain who The Creator was from the first season, and why he trapped all those players in the first place?

    After seeing the turnout for the premier at AX, SAO is most definitely getting a third season.

    Wrong. It begins on Book 10, and the game scenario in my opinion is concluding, it'll be done by Book 15/16. One more should wrap it. You could do it in 26 episodes easily.

    Ignoring the fact the first 2 arcs were abridged editions of the Light Novel material, they cut so much character development and inner monologues for Kirito and some other things to get to the action quicker.

    Also they cut the Caliber material in the 2nd arc where it should have been covered for after GGO.

    ^"i read the summary, so i know the whole story"

    damn i feel like laughing...
    but yeah, Alicization arc is doing damn long just in describing something, so it could be short if A-1 use the same formula as season 1:not explaining anything, leaving the anime only watchers clueless but still like it, and the readers infuriated as hell

    author said in an interview he had 10 volumes of material for alicization but some of that could be the extra side stuff he puts together all the time

    Wrong. It begins on book 9. And the next arc will be as long as they getting to the axiom church at the current pasing.
    I am reading volume 14, and I read a summary of the web novels, so I basically know the whole story. SAO will probably have 17 volumes, If they animate them thei'll have enough material for 25 chapters.
    Although, the axiom church arc could probably be done in a few episodes, because there aren't that much scenes. the pasing in the novel is getting incredibly slow.

    The could do a 12-13 episode season from Asuna's novel, plus all the short story stuff from volume 9, if they tried hard enough.

    But, yeah, the next big arc is looooooong.

    At least you're doing the honorable thing and watching it so you can bash it.

    Posters that 'bash' and 'no watch' are the equivalent to the "it's popular, so it sucks" people on tv tropes :O
