Sword Art Online 2 episode 08
Ah, this sucks! I was writing this post yesterday when suddenly a blackout decided to ruin my plans to write and schedule this post, forcing me to start this post all over again because I couldn’t save it. Well, I do it willingly since this particular episode was so damn good.
The pace suddenly just picked up. I thought this was going to be another one of those slow episodes where Kazuto made his way to the finals, but no… This turned out to be a lot more than that. I’m not sure if I have this right, but I think this may actually be the finals. They put thirty something players in a big field and let them fight it out amongst themselves. One player is supposed to remain standing (if I understood correctly) and come out as the sole winner of this match. Normally I wouldn’t by fazed by this, but I am getting quite excited since Kazuto, Shino and Death Gun are all on the map. This means that only one of them will win, right?
Kazuto is still worried about that guy. Does he really have the power to kill someone with some in-game weapon? He doesn’t know, nor is he willing to take any risks. He told Shino to stop Death Gun from killing that guy because he thinks that his victim might die in real life, too. Kazuto is really taking this seriously. The fact that Death Gun is an old Sword Art Online player from a player killing guild must’ve sealed the deal for Kazuto. He’s completely serious and has been acting like a nervous, panicky little brat since he had that talk with Death Gun. I’m quite interested to see how he will deal with this situation next week.
