Sword Art Online episode 18

Hey guys, is it just me or is Sword Art Online becoming more aggressive? Or rather… It’s making me, the viewer, a bit more aggressive. It’s been eighteen weeks now since the start, yet we keep seeing the exact same result, even though it’s a new chapter (for lack of a better word).

It’s nice that Kazuto hasn’t given up hope on his girlfriend, Asuna. I completely agree. That character should be like that, but to start a new game like this? I don’t know. It doesn’t get us anywhere. We have only a few episodes left and Kazuto has started all over again. He may have his levels and some skills, but he as to acquire all the information he can about that new game in order to save Asuna.

Basically, what I’m trying to say is; it’s pointless. I like the fact that his in-game character can fly now. I like the fact that he is playing with his sister right now, even though both of them aren’t aware of it yet. I like most of it. Yet… I can’t seem to like the fact that Asuna is still being held captive inside another game.

Anyway, what’s done is done. I didn’t make it. Hell, I couldn’t even think of such an incredible story, let alone put it on paper. It just feels that we have started all over again, that’s all. I would’ve change the in-game part. I would’ve let Asuna wake up. I would’ve let Kazuto fight for her in the real world, instead of sending that character straight into a new game. Think about it; how great would it be if those two lovebirds, two people that were both stuck inside a game for ages, eloped to some place, just so that they could be together? That would’ve been one hell of an ending.
