      They really went all out! And this is supposed to be just the buildup, not the actual climax itself xD From a production POV, I can only imagine the kind of effort it must have taken to produce something like that, so I’m really appreciative of it too.

    YES FINALLY!!! This is actually the thing I am looking forward to! Especially when the dragoons of the Caith Sith appeared and when Sakuya and the other Sylfs came to the rescue!!! Everything from that half of the episode was too epic for me and I had chill ran down my spine and I don’t want to really complain about it.

    Kirito has his reasons concerning his actions towards Suguha, that I understand pretty well and I know, Sugu does understands in the end. And wasn’t it too cute of RECON TO ACTUALLY MAKE SUGU FORGET ABOUT EVERYTHING AND JUST MADE HER LAUGH JUST LIKE THAT?!?! OMG HE IS PERFECT. HE IS.

      When they dropped their swords, I was thinking if Recon was watching it below, how funny would it be if those swords stabbed him as they fall down. Then he ruins the scene’s mood by flying up with two swords stabbed into his head. I know it would really ruin the mood, but it will be funny if they included something like that in their special joke episodes.

      I do have to agree, Lyfa and Recon make a perfect couple.

        LMAO that would be hilarious! How did the swords even fall so conveniently after throwing them in different directions?

        Are the joke episodes Sword Art Offline? I think I remember watching the first one, where they hosted some kind of show and had Klein as a guest or something…

    • Vantage says:

      It was just…THE FEELSSS ^_^ I watched the latter half of that episode over and over just to experience those emotions all over again xD

      As insignificant as Recon is in the grand scheme of things, I do have to admit that his presence did break up the tension between Kirito and Sugu. And Recon x Lyfa? Sure, it’s preferable to Kirito x Lyfa anyway.

    Gah, what a cliff hanger! I was this close to reading the LN after watching that.. I couldn’t help myself after last week’s drama and read ahead and I felt i didn’t enjoy this ep as much as i probably could have if I saw it fresh. Not that it wasn’t completely awesome regardless. Must.. not.. read ahead.. again…

    I didn’t realize kirito’s shoes are magnetic to stones O.o, he was standing upside down with his wings retracted near the end. lol

    • Wanderer says:

      It could have been just a shift of gravity. It’s a game, right? It’s not real life.

      I know someone who’s reading the LN right after each episode, and stopping after the events of that episode – she has some insane willpower to do that on a weekly basis. Personally, even if you know what happens from the LN., they’re two separate forms of media in the end – you get a different experience with reading and watching.

      …But for the purposes of self-gratification over next week’s ep, don’t read ahead if you want to freshly experience the thrill xD

    The second part of this episode was so awesome that i couldn’t help but stare and wait for what was going to happen in the screen. Oh, yeah and i also got me cheering on them while they desperately tried to climb the tree.
    Even if it was self-destruction, Recon got his bad ass moment. I thought last week’s episode had an insane amount of guardians, but then i saw this week’s and they looked like they formed a cloud when Kirito was near the top. This episode had a ton lot of emotions, not only with the resolution of Kirito and Lyfa’s problem( that reference to the first opening was beautiful), but also with the battle, with the climax and everybody’s struggle to help Kirito reach the top. Kirito’ s breakthrough was just epic( which reminded me of certain TTGL scenes, as well as “Recon’s Sacrifice”), and certainly Lyfa had a hand in that, without her power Kirito maybe wouldn’t have got it in the end.

    And Sugou, what a bastard, if making the million guardians wasn’t enough to prevent anyone from passing, he ALSO made the door locked by the system. In this part i was like: “REALLY? THAT BASTARD!” But then Yui and the keycard Asuna gave them came in handy and i was like “YEAH!”.

    Well, good thing everybody was there to help, and what is important is that they did it. Now, it is the time everybody who watched the ALO arc waited for: Seeing Kirito beat Sugu! Guess it will be more “satisfying” for the viewers to see than Nomi’s case, taking into consideration people disliked Sugu more than Nomi in general. xD
    I also think it is different when you read and see after, and when you see it animated first. It is more of a “surprise” when you don’t exactly know what is going to happen. Guess it changes from people to people.
