Sword Art Online 2 episode 09
Yeah, this episode seems about right. It would’ve been absolute nonsense if Death Gun, the main villain of this particular story, were to be defeated this soon. There would be no way to finish this story properly if that were the case.
So Kazuto’s friends and family are worried about him now that they’ve had a peek of the tournament and realized that Death Gun used to be a Sword Art Online player. I think it’s kind of strange that they managed to deduct his involvement in Laughing Coffin, a player killing guild from Sword Art Online that’s responsible for hundreds of deaths, just by one simple phrase. I think that Death Gun (rather the person behind Death Gun) would’ve been caught a long time ago if it were really that simple. So yeah, not really happy with that at all. Still, it allowed Asuna to understand Kazuto’s sudden interest in Gun Gale Online.
I also find it rather strange that Death Gun managed to avoid Shino’s shot. She shot him from afar with a sniper rifle, which supposedly is enough to kill any other player, yet Death Gun dodge it like he knew it was coming. How the hell did that happen? There are a lot of things that don’t make a lot of sense right now. A whole lot.
I’ll just have to wait until the next episode before my theory has been actually confirmed (or maybe even longer than that), but I really think that Death Gun is someone close to Shino. He is wielding the same handgun that Shino used to defend herself against a bank robber. I’m pretty sure that Kyouji, the friend that Shino confides in, is Death Gun. I am absolutely sure of it.
