Sword Art Online 2 episode 10
I am fairly certain that Kyouji, that so-called from of Shino, is Death Gun. He completely fits the profile and he has the motive. Kyouji is obsessed with Shino and Death Gun happens to have the one gun that terrifies Shino more than anything in the world. I doubt many people know about her fear… Coincidence? Not really.
Despite the obvious bad guy in this season, don’t you think that Shino’s relapse is a little annoying? She was a complete badass not two episodes ago. She never let anyone talk her down, held her own during any situation, but now… Now she’s become a meek little puppet that can’t even defend herself, even though she’s fully aware that’s she’s just playing a game. And please, don’t send me angry e-mails (again) about how I’m insensitive and stupid to say something like that. I got mails like that a lot and this is how I respond: “it’s just anime, geek. People have their own opinions of it. Get over it!”
It kind of annoyed me how Kazuto had to help her fight against Death Gun. She could not pull the trigger. All Shino could do was cry for help as she sat there in fear. For a second there I thought she was going to piss herself. It’s a little disappointing to see one of the main characters, in this case one of the strongest snipers, to be reduced to that.
Anyway, Kazuto has his work cut out for him. Shino’s crazy stalker (I’m sure of it) is on their asses and he is looking to kill both of them. Perhaps the guy realized that he can’t steal Shino’s heart and decided to kill her instead? All the more reason to kill Kazuto; first he defeated his Guild in Sword Art Online and now he’s stolen the heart of the girl that he likes… Ouch!
