Sword Art Online episode 06

I did not see this one coming. I knew this week’s episode would be interesting, but the twist was quite something. I was going an entire different way with my assumptions, which goes to show that I’m not always right. After all, I’m just another viewer, just like you.

After a week of waiting the story finally continues. I was going in the direction of a special item that allowed players to kill one another in safe areas. I was also thinking about the possibility of an interfering Game Master (GM), but that would be highly likely in Sword Art Online. The creator made it very clearly that there would be very little to no interfering, so that people would have to finish the game on their own.

It seems that Kazuto had already figured it out. You see, those handmade weapons were durability-draining weapons. That means that those weapons were specifically made to destroy players’ items. The players that got stabbed with those weapons didn’t actually die, it seems. Their gear just got destroyed and they teleported the second that happened, making it seem as though they had actually died.

Seriously, I was pretty impressed by that twist. It seems that Griselda’s husband was the one that killed her, only because he thought the game had changed her. He had hired a player killing guild (PK Guild) to kill her as well as the remaining members, but Kazuto got in the way before they could finish their task. That guy is seriously bad ass.

I’m not sure what’s going to happen during the next episode, but I’m looking forward to it. The relationship between Asuna and Kazuto is still a bit shaky and sensitive, but I’m starting to see a lot of improvement between those two. I see no reason as to why Kazuto should have to fight alone.
