Sword Art Online episode 07
Oh boy, here it comes; a hellish love triangle. I could see it happen before my very eyes, and that just within the first five minutes. I could see so far ahead because I know what happens in these types of situations. Things are going to become a bit uncomfortable for Kazuto from now on.
Kazuto decided that it was time for a new sword. A sword that would help him to defeat stronger enemies. So Kazuto went to a blacksmith that Asuna recommended a blacksmith, so Kazuto decided to stop by and check it out. That’s when he met Rika, a cute little blacksmith that thinks highly of her weapons. Kazuto didn’t want to waste any time, so he decided to test one of her weapons, after which he ended up breaking it. Needless to say that Rika was not happy with it at all. Still, she decided that she wanted to make him a powerful weapon, after which she told him that she needed his help to get the required materials to make him such a weapon.
Who would’ve though it? Oh, wait, I did. That part was pretty predictable; getting attacked by a strong monster that she couldn’t handle, causing Kazuto to save her life. Okay, they managed to get their precious material in the end, but come on… Really? I’m pretty sure anyone could’ve guessed that something like that might happen. It’s a MMORPG, so strong monsters (more commonly known as bosses) are pretty much standard stuff. I just can’t believe it turned into such a situation where the hero actually ended up saving yet another damsel in distress. This is the third or fourth time now, isn’t it?
Oh well, I enjoyed watching it, which is all that really matters in the end. Things are going to become pretty interesting from now on, but I fear that they are going to become a bit predictable too. I mean, Rika-chan is aware of the feelings that Asuna has for Kazuto, so Rika won’t be as aggressive as before. It is my guess that Rika will continue to pursue Kazuto in her own way by observing the relationship between him and Asuna.
