Sword Art Online episode 16
I’m shocked. I’m completely and utterly shocked. I knew that it was safe to expect a lot of drama, but this… This was beyond my expectations. I hate to say it, I really do, but I’m not too sure I’m happy about it all. This could either go very well or end up very badly.
I can’t believe that Kazuto, after having been stuck inside that dreadful game for over two years, dove right into another, yet very similar game. The games are similar because both of them use the same engine and coding. The setting is the only thing that’s different. This time it’s an adventure game where the characters are flying fairies and whatnot.
So yeah, Kazuto started playing the game. However, he soon realized that his character data from Sword Art Online was still intact. In fact, his entire character remained the same, except for his items and dual wielding skill. His fighting skills, defending skills and all his other stats remained the same. That part I liked! I don’t want to see him start from level one again. We passed that point long ago.
It is a ridiculous decision he made. But, even though I hate to say it, he had good reason to do so. Asuna may or may not be inside that game. We all know she’s still in a coma. But she’s not dead. Not yet. A player supposedly died in the real world as soon as he/she was killed in Sword Art Online, which proves that she’s still alive. Chances are that’s she’s inside that new game alright, seeing as it uses the same system and all. Hell, even their “daughter”, an A.I. from Sword Art Online, was restored as soon as Kazuto pulled her out of his inventory. It’s safe to assume that we are about to embark upon a new journey throughout a new people-killing game. Yay…
