    So far it's decent. I liked ep 2 a lot more than ep 1 and it would have worked better than ep 1 as the first episode. We get a solid intro, though even if she mostly just buffs her speed I don't see how LLENN is so much faster than everyone else (besides Kirito obviously).

    After the massive flak SAO in general has gotten over the past years, this season so far seems easy enough to follow. LLENN is a likeable character and M is fun too being this stern mountain of a man. Wonder what the letter says and why it presumably forced M to destruct/forfeit the team and leave it at winning place 2nd. Hope it won't include overly forced drama that some outside force wants to sabotage LLENN's succes for dramatic reasons. Bring on ep 5.

    Thought it might be something like this as well. Although why would Pito ask M to shoot LLEN, I have no idea.

    Going from M's username maybe he's in that sort of relationship with Pito and listens to the things she says :maybe

    It's probably obvious as all hell, but at the same time might be some massive spoiler if I or we guess this correctly?

    Because didn't Pito say she couldn't play the match on saturday because she had plans to attend a friend's wedding or something? And then LLENN wants to visit this idol-show that she couldn't score tickets for ... also on this saturday.

    Isn't this basically 1+1=2 ? Pito will end up being this famous idol that LLENN is a fan of? It would fall in the relatively easy drama or plottwists that SAO is known for.

    Like this is basically the same as the GGO season with Shinon where there was supposedly an unknown killer dude running wild. Well basically the only other character in that season besides the MC and the female sidekick was Shinon's friend. Guess who ended up being the killer?

    Had to get this of me chest.

    It could be. They have mentioned that idol several times by now, I wouldn't be surprised if they connect her to it somehow.

    The episode was rather good and that twist at the end as to who those girls were was amusing.

    I wonder what Pito's deal is? Is she an ex-SAO player like Death Gun? The events of the GGO arc apparently took place before this.

    This show is really great. It was hilarious how LLENN accidentally became a good player due to misunderstanding the tutorial lady while coincidentally fighting in a pink desert while wearing pink, allowing her to level up pretty high quickly.

    Too bad there's no game like GGO in existence right now that lets you have all this customization and has all these interesting features like being able to run super human speed if you invest a ton in AGI or having the strength to make large leaps if you have a lot of STR while being underweighted at the same time.

    Sorry but episode 5 was annoyingly bad.

    Episodes 1 to 4 weren't exactly top of the line hot stuff, but watching LLENN, M and Pito just play this game a little bit was comfy to watch. Then M's backstab cliffhanger in ep4 was some great stuff.

    Then ep5. Budget completely drained? I mean this show didn't look super hot from the get go, but this ep had really poor shots and animation.

    How many times did LLENN survive on bullshit asspull of WCI One Piece proportions? She survives 5 or so shots in the HEART because suddenly that immortal object GPS is there? Geez, why didn't any GGO player ever think of that. And then uses her rifle as a shield. Yeah it'll take damage and break, but hey, then everyone carries around a temporary shield! Nope, only for the MC.

    P-chan suddenly becoming sentient? Ehhhh is this Yui 2.0 then?

    Pito maybe NOT being our saturday concert idol, but instead another implied psychopath that maybe goes around killing people? Yeah maybe it's not Sword Art Online without a DERANGED MURDERER on the loose.

    And then the MC suddenly makes kawaii friends in real life and all her problems disappear like snow in the sun.

    Beh, ep6 better be good stuff.

    because it's basically the same as SAO minus a self insert for teenage boys' power fantasies?

    Nothing I'd hype up or recommend to others, but it isn't dreadful and I somewhat like the MC.

    it had in-character commentary, so it wasn't too bad

    --
    Pito: What do you see in that prim and proper girl?
    M: Maybe how beautiful she looks from behind?
    Pito: Ew! I'll be sure to tell her that next time I see her. I'll say, my young friend wants to lick your butt.
    M: Please do.
