Sword Art Online episode 24

What the hell is going on with Sword Art Online? The story’s pace was slow until now, so why did it suddenly break the sound barrier? This is what I was afraid of. Too much happened in one episode, and I believe that it happened too fast.

[HorribleSubs] Sword Art Online - 24 [720p].mkv_snapshot_03.57_[2012.12.19_22.04.43]We spent the past few episodes watching Kazuto and his little sister play this new game, a game where the player actually flies for a brief period of time before having to recharge that ability. He made some new friends, defeated a few enemies and actually farmed enough gold to save two classes from being defeated by another, invading class of players.

Do you get the picture now? Kazuto did all that during the past few weeks, yet how did he, in one single episode, find the correct key, allow his fairy friend to decrypt and use it, walk up to the final stage and meet up with Asuna, the girl he fell in love with, only to end up defeating Oberon, that psychotic nerd that actually tried to virtual-rape Asuna infront of Kazuto.

I’m not saying that it wasn’t fun when Kazuto suddenly overpowered him. Even I wouldn’t have thought about the possibility of Akihiko leaving Kazuto will all of his administrative powers. It makes sense; Akihiko came to like Kazuto after he was defeated by him, and ALfheim Online is practically the same as Sword Art Online, which explains why Kazuto had all of his old gear and skills when he first started.

It’s a shame that it came to this, but I have high hopes for the final episode. Asuna has finally logged out after all those years, and Kazuto is probably going to the hospital lickety f*ckin’ split. It’ll be quite touching when he kisses her in real life for the very first time. Part of me wishes that both her father and psycho geek are there when (and if) that happens.
