Sword Art Online 2
A must see, a must write and a must buy. Need I really say more? Sword Art Online went international a few weeks after it first aired. People, including myself, were completely obsessed and loved every bit of it. It is only natural that it’s back in the form of a second season.
The artwork is still as great as I remember it. The characters look great, the details are superb and the entire setting is worth remembering. I love how they created every single thing. The authors obviously spent a lot of time playing MMORPG’s in order to create something so detailed as this.
I remember saying in my first Sword Art Online review that it wasn’t completely original. I said it resembled the Dot Hack series. This was only true for the first few episodes. I soon realized that Sword Art Online has his own unique magic that made me want to continue watching and writing.
Watch this. Watch this after you’ve seen the first season. You will love it, trust me. I was actually planning to re-watch the entire first season during my vacation (on the bus, whilst sunbathing, basically during every chance I get). Love it!
Plot Summary: 1 year after the SAO incident, Kirito is approached by Seijiro Kikuoka from Japan’s Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications Department “VR Division” with a rather peculiar request.
That was an investigation on the “Death Gun” incident that occurred in the gun and steel filled VRMMO called Gun Gale Online (GGO). “Players who are shot by a mysterious avatar with a jet black gun lose their lives even in the real world…” Failing to turn down Kikuoka’s bizarre request, Kirito logs in to GGO even though he is not completely convinced that the virtual world could physically affect the real world.
Kirito wanders in an unfamiliar world in order to gain any clues about the “Death Gun.” Then, a female sniper named Sinon who owns a gigantic “Hecate II” rifle extends Kirito a helping hand. With Sinon’s help, Kirito decides to enter the “Bullet of Bullets,” a large tournament to choose the most powerful gunner within the realm of GGO, in hopes to become the target of the “Death Gun” and make direct contact with the mysterious avatar.
