Sword Art Online - Isn't that a death flag? Asuna strips too?!

Episode : 10 8. September 2012 22:22

Hello,

Let's talk about the 10th episode of the summer season 2012 anime series Sword Art Online that concludes all the needed emotional developments to make Kirito and Asuna officially a couple.

Well, maybe more than a couple considering they are going to marry soon ingame and they've actually gone through the famous "glop chapter 16.5" that everyone was talking about in the recent months.

I was not expecting them to strongly imply such a scene in a TV broadcasted anime, but I suppose that after Yosuga no Sora everything is allowed in a TV broadcast, especially if it doesn't contain any heavy fanservice.

Sword Art Online

Apart from Kuradeel's allegiance to the Laughing Coffin (he was, in the end, just a lame murderous villain), the main point of interest was the duel between our hero Kirito and Heathcliff, the leader of Asuna's guild.

His movements at the end of the duel were ABNORMAL, and Kirito clearly noticed that. At this point, I'm speculating that he is not playing fair and has access to some level of game cheats...

That would explain how he managed to get all those legends about him "never going down into the orange health bar"...

As you can see from this small video scene, Asuna decided that it's time to face seriously her relationship with Kirito. She decided to do so, by stripping naked in front of him...

To be honest, it sounds a bit weird when Accel World delivered a similar stripping scene (Chiyuri was the girl) in the exact same week...

I'm not very familiar with the original web-novels, but I heard that this is the censored down version of the famous glop 16.5 chapter that got axed (obviously) from the light novel production.

Sword Art Online

Next episode will switch back to cover the last important side-story to the main plot that deepen the relationship of the newlywed Kirito and Asuna through the addition of an extra female character.

I don't know much about what story we're going to face, but I heard that this is an important step needed for future developments in the storyline.

I just hope it won't be a long side story arc though, because I'm really curious to know what was the "cheat" used by Heathcliff in the duel...

Sword Art Online

Concluding, Sword Art Online continues to be a rather entertaining anime series that I'll continue to watch and cover regularly in this blog.

See you soon,

Isn't this a positive thing Marthaurion, if we continue in this way at least 3-4 minutes each episode will be dedicated to stripping. Isn't that plain awesome?

There is no escape, if these two series get successful it will become a frequent trend. it's...DESTINY! :O

To my eyes, is like he stopped time for Kirito while he continued to move on. That "shouldn't" be possible right?

They definitely make it sound like it was an abnormal behavior, and let's be honest...He's definitely suspicious, because he's the only other user to have an unique skill, don't you agree?

I speculate that they'll have to fight again sooner or later in order to make Kirito win...

Is it like Princess Lover? Or where do that OVAs came from? I heard the game was not official but it was really good.
In that case let's air Aki Sora with Yosuga no Sora!, it...alike.
Nah, probably not, but since I read a bit (...) I will be hoping that PORO takes the initiative.

I was reading Kimi no Iru Machi and...by the power of the TARDIS! So many cockblocks everywhere!
But yeah, I understand the...now that I think about it why they don't do it? Culture? Probably because in almost every movie from Hollywood there is at least one naked scene. So don't go complaining about decency!

For some reason I always imagine a version of Charlie Wonka with all those stuff, and the oompa loompas carrying the especial and limited edition, trees where the mangas grow and rivers of all kinds of LN...(I'm not smoking nor drinking anything...just pizza, normal pizza!)

I didn't played it, saw some parts of the OVA...disturbing. Then I show it to a friend and he got addicted to it. Easy to understand, he started the VN territory with Bible Black. And it's all my fault.

Domino's Pizza, like the arch-enemy of Pizza Hut, and since we have it in Mexico I bet it's everywhere. Mix it with soda, VNs, minecraft and Doctor Who and you'll get!!!!...something definitely weird.

Well he actually said he played Bible Black for the plot...but he's more of a Nitro+ fan. Precisaly, it's the only thing he plays over and over.
For me, long black-haired cool bishoujo with a sword, if you see that, give me a call.  (of course, no r*pe, ga***ang or the really infamous NTR...)

Pretty much. It's possible to end the story after SAO but due to the nature of the last battle in the SAO arc it would end up being a passive ending. Y'know almost like the one in Chrome Shelled Regios.

so the chief skill is the increase of attack and defense attribute...the chief shield was huge usually in this situation he wouldn't be able to move fast thanks to the shield but he apparently got that covered he also use his strength to use the shield as a method of creating an opening by bashing the shield to the opponent this is rather annoying if i was kirito due to the fact that not only the owner is strong meaning the defense be broken thanks to the shield keep protecting him  his defensive method is rather annoying too it is one of those deflecting rather than fully stopping meaning the more force you put in it make your chance of getting knocked down higher though this can be prevented rather easily if you don't stab however without it the shield would have been rather hard to penetrate not to mention his shield bashing is there too his sword is used only when the opponent have a gap or an opening such as after the opponent finish attacking... if kirito stop attacking and retreat using a hit and run tactic rather than challenging him on a close quarter combat he would be cornered by heathcliff as heathcliff can close the gap with his speed... speaking of his speed is quite something with the shield shown by he surprise and manage to hit kirito with his shield though kirito have the upper advantage by keep attacking due to his fast attack speed... his swordmanship isn't bad however he is more focus on shield rather than using his sword as a method of defending thus the seem rather inferior to kirito slashing rather slowly compare to kirito and his attack seem to be easy to be parried though like i said it is probably because he use it when the opponent attack have been block and leave an opening as his attack rather poorly compare to defending... though this might be the different of sword they are using since kirito sword seem smaller in comparison his reaction time was beyond average too he defend kirito attack which come from multiple angle though he is given the advantage of having a huge shield he also manage to dodge one of kirito attack the stab that take a tiny portion of health from him if he hadn't dodge he would have taken more than a scratch not to mention when his defense got broken and the shield got pushed backward he show some kind of super human reflex by deflecting kirito attack and counter attack using the opening he create...

asuna deserve her title as flash as she run very fast not only that her method of attacking is rather dangerous too a rapid attack using her pure speed and parry to create an opening by making the opponent knocked back by her and then attacking the opponent with a barrage of stabing if she actually aim at the opponent body and not only making scratch she could easily kill kuradeel though she seem to be scared at the idea of killing someone however justified as you remember that these people are normal ordinary  people rather than a hired mercenaries and trained soldier and such however even the one that kill is probably just break from the stress of getting trapped...though back to asuna it is a shame she let her guard down before finishing the enemy she should have move backward than show mercy rather forgiving him at a spot where he could attack you though kirito seem to have a skill which make his hand seem capable of piercing thing kind of remind me of laser sword from a certain anime/light novel created by the same author...
and what do you know she easily misinterpreted word such as striping in front of kirito...though i would be uncomfortable too if asuna somehow strip and then ask me to do the same thing the laughing coffin guild should just be killed at that time considering they will kill more and more innocent along the way and the back story seem to actually have some kind of use now...rather than showing backstory in the middle of the main arc this method is kind of better the unneeded stuff got thrown away first and then the show got better in comparison...

Truth to be said, his movements at the end of that fight were clearly abnormal as Kirito noted and I'm starting to think that we still know too little about this Heathcliff to judge. Maybe he's a real cheater...

try to think about it, he's the only guy shown till now with a unique skill and he's also considered the most powerful player in the world. He defeats Kirito...
Isn't that a story flag implying that they'll have a re-match in the near future?


Well, that's her skill for you. She's a vice-leader for a reason, and that's because she's still one of the most powerful players available in the world of Aincrad.

They're getting married now, so I suppose getting her stripped will be a common occurrence from now one...*looks away*

hmm we don't get to see anything as it is instead of being animated smoothly and fastly it just show he deflect kirito attack somehow though normally it suppose to be impossible thanks to the the blade speed and distance which should ensure sure hit however heathcliff seem to be capable of blocking such attack...in normal battle kirito would probably put up a better fight sadly the result would be the same without the time and the rule kirito can easily continue the battle though like i said since heathcliff have superhuman capability to block the last strike would require him to move in an instant which if it still followed the rule of the real world albeit with a little suspension of disbelief should be impossible for a normal human don't know if people like kirito who have those abnormal reflex would count though...though that is kind of making me wonder is it some kind of skill or pure reflex alone though that doesn't explain the last block as his hand and shield have been push backward though i am not saying it is impossible just very hard to do... if a rematch would happen kirito would have know on what method did heathcliff block and change his fighting style into something that doesn't require much force his loss is because heathcliff special defense method in the last second which make kirito lose his balance and open for counter attack...

asuna speed and agility and speed attack is dangerous if she doesn't hesitate and is  battle hardened she could be powerful her speed alone surpass that of kirito her agility is better than kirito and her attack speed is also almost comparable to kirito mainly because kirito use dual blade but asuna make it up with her rapid attack but she is still a fragile speedster wearing nothing but cloth rather than armor like kirito i guess both are pure speed type...though the question is how will she fair against the strongest namely heathcliff? asuna is fast her rapid stabbing have a chance at allowing her to break through heathcliff defense not by pure force though it is more akin to attacking the part which the shield don't cover and not to mention heathcliff won't use his shield for attacking as it would be dangerous to use against someone like asuna which not only could dodge but conter attack in an instant and her speed would allow her to attack heathcliff from a blind spot such as an attack from the back though heathcliff reflex and perception and movement is not to be taken lightly too after all he did manage to deflect the last attack from kirito... and against someone like asuna who use sheer number rather than kirito asuna doesn't have much force in her attack  make heathcliff special defense method rather useless  so who do you think will win feal?heathcliff or asuna?

hmm every girl in my current favorite anime is stripping for some reason...though for accel world it is the wrong girl that i wanted to see though if it was kurohime that was stripping she would be the only flat one. interesting how chiyuri is younger than kurohime and yet she is more endowed than kurohime which is older...though back to sword art online kirito and asuna would got into the countryside and take a break meaning there would be no fighting scene...i wish they will show every part of the novel with detail evem the one that shouldn't be shown should be animated too such as the one that would happen if kirito actually take off his cloth as asuna demand...though the series have been nice so far a little slow at the beginning but they made it up when the main arc start with a good battle and the like...kind of like mmorpg it is boring in the beginning no good battle no good skill you get beaten a lot etc...which make an interesting what if question for me what if kirito isn't a beta tester? my shot is that he would join the dead in the first few floor and would have never met asuna and asuna won't have the stripping scene...

I'm still unsure, the whole scene made me imply that something was odd with the game system in that final strike. That's DEFINITELY not Heathcliff's skill, of that I'm sure...

yeah, fast, but light attacks compared to Kirito's powerful strikes. That's a whole difference, and I think she has no chances against Heathcliff for another reason and that is because KIRITO need to defeat him in order to avenge his previous defeat once and for all...


That's nature asdfghjkl! Some girls are flat, some are huge, some are normal!


I agree, next story arc will unlikely have any major battle and will focus more on the relationship between Asuna and Kirito.

That's likely...

hmm should really change my name it is hard to type and pronounce especially pronounce try it feal i commend you if you find it easy...
fair enough i don't mind liliana and erica normal i don't mind kurohime flat(well she is 14)or sky raker normal that much i can say not sure if i can say the same about the first one...

now for the sao material what strike me the most is that he can defend from that considering the distance and speed made it rather difficult to do even not only is it heavy he transport it to over his head rather too quickly than normal...not sure if there is a skill that suddenly transport your hand to protect from enemy attack...

the reason i say asuna fair better is because compare to kirito she doesn't attack with much force meaning the defense heathcliff is using is rendered useless not to mention her speed and agility and of course
maneuverability is higher than kirito and find the gap in heathcliff defedn rather than forcefully break through like kirito...not to mention if he use shield bass he would be open to asuna rapid attack...and really now kirito would have to knew how did heathcliff block the last attack and find a way to counter it and of course kirito would have to change his fighting style such as using less force which is hard to believe ...

they are getting married and in their ceremony the one that come include kobold king,kuradeel and the laughing coffin,all of the kob,klein,liz,somehow sachi and kuroneko ,beasttamer silica,and gleam eyes best wedding ever...though in all seriousness they wouldn't last long the peace and happiness i mean they would probably be called back to the front line to fight against the next boss though they would without a doubt do "something" in their apparently honeymoon sort of stuff...only different for me is that mmorpg is based on grinding and equipment never got the patience if it were like sword art online i wouldn't mind playing you can dodge and defense better as long as you have the reflex and strength like in hack and slash...

The leader that defeated the Kirito is the game creator of SAO himself. He basically paused time or delayed it for him in order to block Kirito's attack. If he wasn't the game creator, he would have lost.

Kirito will eventually find out about him.

Now that the fights with the Capra Demon and Heathcliff are out of the way it looks like things are going to go down hill, I can see this arc in particular ending at around the fourteenth episode. On the topic of the episode itself though I liked how A-1 handled the battle with Heathcliff. How it got there was a little crammed but the animation for it was fast and intense, probably the very sort of epic battle you had been expecting earlier. If it counts for anything there are apparently eight or so more unique skill users, they don't show up.

From that point however I don't exactly have much to say, as I've no doubt gone on about before even without the infamous glop chapter Kirito and Asuna's relationship is/was forced as hell. The story has effectively gone here's the protagonist, here's the heroine, they're now a couple, it probably doesn't seem that bad but if you cut out all the side story stuff it's almost painful. Writing a story to fit where you want it to be instead of leading it there simply makes it feel unnatural. Anyway next week's side story should be fun, I find Yui's character a little annoying but it isn't that bad.

14th episode with the first story arc ending would leave us less than half series for the other arc. Is the ALO story that short? Or will they have to cram a lot of stuff into few episodes?

Yeah, the battles in these two episodes were quite exciting, a lot more compared to the first ones!


Yep, I agree that Kirito and Asuna relationship just doesn't make sense if we don't know all the experiences they lived together. They shifted too easily from "strangers" to couple and well...>_<

Sorry Gin i dont agree with you at all, i find the romance very natural and that it flowed very gracefully from the story line and works just fine. I am glad that we have that as part of the series and am thinking they are doing very well with this series in just about every way, nothing about it feels forced or artificial at all to me and i have watched it very closely and critically as others will know. I am happy with how things are and am sure that they will keep the story going, i dont like the focus on "arcs" it is an artificial attempt to pull apart a series and the story overall needs to be viewed as a whole, just as our lives in the real world have many events but that does not seperate those from the life as a whole... just my thoughts on that, imho.

I find myself siding with Gin's idea this time around, the relationship between Asuna and Kirito is moving too fast for any normal couple. They were totally strangers till some episodes ago and they're a romantic couple at the moment.
I understand that a lot of time has passed in game time, but without them showing this...well I can't "imagine" it...

As Feal too has pointed out the progression is just far too quick. Only two episodes ago, and only a few in series days before, Kirito and Asuna were really only familiar aquaintances. Asuna came into the story already chasing after him, and while intimidated by her Kirito didn't really think much of her, yet after only a few moments together they're suddenly a couple (and by the end of the episode married). Everything just happens in quick succession and there isn't any time for it to set in or be detailed. This isn't a problem that only effects their relationship however, before you know it Kayaba will have been defeated and Aincrad will be crumbling.

Anyway my point is that everything in the story at hand can only be described as rushed, Kawahara only seems to be trying to get the story off the ground at this point and even notes that he didn't exactly have as many pages to work with as he needed. The story comes across as a two year epic but it will never live up to that impression in the slightest, seriously the ending will come out of nowhere. The anime is handling things nicely though, by taking the side stories and presenting them first we've been able to better familiarise ourselves with the characters and while there are still large gaps, we now at least have some idea of how they met and what led to Asuna liking Kirito. I only wish that it would spend more time detailing the atmosphere of the game.

Also I prefer to view things as a whole as well but when the story isn't complete dividing parts of it into arcs provides an easy way of differentiating and referring to the events within it. Storywise the difference in pacing after the events in Aincrad should be interesting, I'm not expecting much but the author should have a greater amount of freedom to work with. And I think I've typed too much.

*nods* that was my feeling as well.

I agree with you here, I heard the the whole story was focused on the first volume only and I do think that a single volume to cover the whole adventure was a bit "too short". The anime, using the side stories, got a good idea to try and control this problem.

They will have quite a short timeframe after Aincrad, especially considering that ALO is 2 volumes as well. I expect some "story butchering"...

It should be interesting at the very least, page wise ALO does seem to be shorter than SAO but two novels and ten to eleven episodes isn't exactly a good combination. Especially with the way that the past episodes were handled, chopping off and throwing out entire chunks of the story just to get it over and done with.

The change story itself is what I'm interested in though, the entire scenario is laughingly bad to the point where you wouldn't think I was serious if I described it, but it opens the way for some long term investment and development.

Brace yourself.

Spoiler: Show
Having spent two years in SAO everyone with the exception of Asuna and a number of unnamed others escape. Kirito then has to play ALO to rescue her from her overly despicable real world fiance (arranged) who is holding her hostage with the intent of marrying her. All his stats from SAO somehow get carried over as well, so no hard work required on his part.


Now I haven't even gotten that into it far yet (been busy) but I had to laugh when I first read it myself. More so it's kind of hard to believe that after getting out of SAO they simply go off to play another VRMMORPG.

Good to see I'm not the only one who though there was unfair play at hand. Heathcliff seemed rather confident that he would win otherwise I doubt he would have made the bet he did. Makes me think there is something going on with the guild behind the scenes.

It kinda feels to me like the story got rushed, I would expect more of Kirito and Asuna dealing with the guild, with guild members and politics keeping them apart or something. Alas, it seems almost like they jumped the gun going straight to sleeping together and getting married.

Oh well, at the very least I can't wait to see the reactions people will have when they announce their marriage. Kirito might find himself hunted down by all the Asuna fans. XD

I'm more leaning on him having some power over the game system that nobody else has. While I don't know how he gained such a power...his movements were too weird.

If you look back at the encounters between K and A i find that there is a logical progression for their relationship....remember this is a intense game environment, i have played many such games and studied them for years and on line relationships both in game character and in Real life from game worlds are sometimes very  intense and rapid, almost like short hand, and for that reason experiences in the game world are much faster than some in the real one, and for that reason and because it works so well with the story i find I am very comfortable with them being close. Remember this is all a game, and not even those who are surviving and living in constant fear of final death not just game death take it seriously i think, marriages and game relationships for that reason are in a special category and not something people will enter into with the same seriousness in the Real world, or at least that is how it feels to me like the writers are playing this. for all those reasons i enjoy the relationship as much or indeed much more than the fighting which is boring to me in boring and in games like this, i find the game world has really zero imagination when it comes to finding new ways to advance players other than competition and fighting, tho a few are trying some new things.

all and all a lovey couple
  and it is going to be a lot of fun and i have no problem with the speed if we remember this is almost like an abridged version of a series for the amount of story they are covering.

The Japanese are much more liberated about sensual matters, so much so that it is shocking to most other more repressed societies who have never know that freedom. It is one of the things i admire a lot about Japanese culture, and am glad they can share with us in various forms as a good influence. It adds a huge dimension of reality to the media of things that they produce and is part of the excellence of anime.

No really, you are confusing a bit too much anime manga and the "rest of the people" in japan. While a good chunk have read a manga, only a very small few (compared to the total population) read manga or watch anime in a consistent/frequent way.
Just give a look at any documentary focusing on the society aspects of Japan, especially when related to work or school before talking about being "free". I do believe that we're a lot more free in terms of society in the western world (at least in my country as I can't talk about the US). I just can't bear their "age" based hierarchy at work or school instead of being focused on "knowledge and skill" like it should be in any REAL liberal country. ;)

Now that's what you call overpowered or overcheated?

he can maximizes his attack and defense, he's using a shield but his speed can match Kirito's speed, or maybe his shield isn't that heavy?

Nothing like turning a girl down for stripping and getting a flying baka punch for it.  Now, unlike Chiyuri/Haru, which the girl did the unnecessary, this time the guy did.  Just do it!  The anime implies he got a flying baka punch and was a nice noble gentlemen idiot who just sat there in his clothes and watched her sleep.  Right.

No really, during that scene in the bed I thought "so this is the way they decided to adapt the chapter 16.5"...

It's spoiler content, but if you want...

There is a new story after the events in the world of Sword Art Online are completed into another online game. They're going to adapt it as well...

Volume 1 is the real story of the last months of game.
Volume 2 are the side stories (Silica, Lisbeth, etc...).

All im gonna say are spoilers!!!

Spoiler: Show
They are all stories after Aincrad event!!!
Volume 3 and 4 is called Fairy Dance... the main focus is to explain the events during the 2 years and Kayaba Akihiko intencions... and they enter in another online game called ALO to save Asuna...
Volume 5 and 6 are called Phantom Bullet... Kirito plays for the Japan government as a detective to solve murders in real and online world GGO...
Volume 7 is called Mother's Rosario and for me is the best arc ever... the main protagonist is Asuna, I cani explain this arc because is direct linked to the SAO Event...
Volume 8 is side stories...
Volume 9 and 10 all the characters are reunited in ALO game (the tower which 100 floors is included in this game) and they have a new enemy...

It was kinda lame that they had side stories on the previous episodes until they finally went back on track for the main story.

It was just somewhat unnecessary for them to do the side stories from the novel.

what is ALO?,and did kirito found asuna after he finish SAO?

Spoiler: Show
No, because when SAO finish... Asuna and another 300 people don't awake... so Kirito starts a new journey in the real and online world to find Asuna (he found her hospital where she still sleeps and met her parents)...
ALO is Alfheim Online - is a new MMORPG, direct linked to SAO events... if I say more, you're gonna kill me!!!

...I don't think there will be another side story.


We'll probably see Kirito and Asuna together at their house which is part of the main story.

Mhn...people who read the light novel told me there is a side story now, not sure about the content though...

SparkNorkx

Eh, there's about 5 episodes based on side stories so far.

But come to think of it, the next episode might be a side story but it will be one of the important ones unlike the others they showed so far.
