Sword Art Online 2 episode 11

I am now one hundred percent sure that Shino’s stalker is the one behind that Death Gun nonsense. There are too many coincidences and everything points to him in my mind. Am I seriously the only one that sees this!?

[HorribleSubs] Sword Art Online II - 11 [720p].mkv_snapshot_04.39_[2014.09.16_00.19.44]So Kazuto thinks he has figured out Death Gun’s methods. He thinks that Death Gun is working with someone else. Death Gun A kills characters in-game and Death Gun B visits players’ houses when they are in-game and do not realize that someone has entered their home. This Death Gun B supposedly injects the players with a poison of some kind as soon as Death Gun A shoots that player in-game with that black handgun of his. This makes it seem as though Death Gun A has the ability to kill players in real-life via the game, even though Death Gun B is the one that does the actual killing.

[HorribleSubs] Sword Art Online II - 11 [720p].mkv_snapshot_21.56_[2014.09.16_00.20.18]It’s a very farfetched theory. This would mean that Death Gun B is currently standing beside Shino’s bed. She cannot logout because he might harm her anyway and she cannot get shot by Death Gun A because Death Gun B will then inject her with that poison. This just leaves them with two options; find a way to signal people on the outside so that they can rush to Shino’s house and apprehend Death Gun B or work together to defeat Death Gun A, hoping that Death Gun B really does leave without doing anything to Shino. This just goes to show that that Stalker really is one of the Death Gun’s. No way did he look over her shoulder. He just knows her address because she either told him or because he follow her home after one of their real-life meetings. I’m sure that’s it.

Sword Art Online 2 episode 10

I am fairly certain that Kyouji, that so-called from of Shino, is Death Gun. He completely fits the profile and he has the motive. Kyouji is obsessed with Shino and Death Gun happens to have the one gun that terrifies Shino more than anything in the world. I doubt many people know about her fear… Coincidence? Not really.

[HorribleSubs] Sword Art Online II - 10 [720p].mkv_snapshot_09.02_[2014.09.08_23.15.13]Despite the obvious bad guy in this season, don’t you think that Shino’s relapse is a little annoying? She was a complete badass not two episodes ago. She never let anyone talk her down, held her own during any situation, but now… Now she’s become a meek little puppet that can’t even defend herself, even though she’s fully aware that’s she’s just playing a game. And please, don’t send me angry e-mails (again) about how I’m insensitive and stupid to say something like that. I got mails like that a lot and this is how I respond: “it’s just anime, geek. People have their own opinions of it. Get over it!”

[HorribleSubs] Sword Art Online II - 10 [720p].mkv_snapshot_14.57_[2014.09.08_23.15.20]It kind of annoyed me how Kazuto had to help her fight against Death Gun. She could not pull the trigger. All Shino could do was cry for help as she sat there in fear. For a second there I thought she was going to piss herself. It’s a little disappointing to see one of the main characters, in this case one of the strongest snipers, to be reduced to that.

Anyway, Kazuto has his work cut out for him. Shino’s crazy stalker (I’m sure of it) is on their asses and he is looking to kill both of them. Perhaps the guy realized that he can’t steal Shino’s heart and decided to kill her instead? All the more reason to kill Kazuto; first he defeated his Guild in Sword Art Online and now he’s stolen the heart of the girl that he likes… Ouch!

Sword Art Online 2 episode 09

Yeah, this episode seems about right. It would’ve been absolute nonsense if Death Gun, the main villain of this particular story, were to be defeated this soon. There would be no way to finish this story properly if that were the case.

[HorribleSubs] Sword Art Online II - 09 [720p].mkv_snapshot_01.44_[2014.09.01_21.12.39]So Kazuto’s friends and family are worried about him now that they’ve had a peek of the tournament and realized that Death Gun used to be a Sword Art Online player. I think it’s kind of strange that they managed to deduct his involvement in Laughing Coffin, a player killing guild from Sword Art Online that’s responsible for hundreds of deaths, just by one simple phrase. I think that Death Gun (rather the person behind Death Gun) would’ve been caught a long time ago if it were really that simple. So yeah, not really happy with that at all. Still, it allowed Asuna to understand Kazuto’s sudden interest in Gun Gale Online.

[HorribleSubs] Sword Art Online II - 09 [720p].mkv_snapshot_20.38_[2014.09.01_21.13.21]I also find it rather strange that Death Gun managed to avoid Shino’s shot. She shot him from afar with a sniper rifle, which supposedly is enough to kill any other player, yet Death Gun dodge it like he knew it was coming. How the hell did that happen? There are a lot of things that don’t make a lot of sense right now. A whole lot.

I’ll just have to wait until the next episode before my theory has been actually confirmed (or maybe even longer than that), but I really think that Death Gun is someone close to Shino. He is wielding the same handgun that Shino used to defend herself against a bank robber. I’m pretty sure that Kyouji, the friend that Shino confides in, is Death Gun. I am absolutely sure of it.

Sword Art Online 2 episode 08

Ah, this sucks! I was writing this post yesterday when suddenly a blackout decided to ruin my plans to write and schedule this post, forcing me to start this post all over again because I couldn’t save it. Well, I do it willingly since this particular episode was so damn good.

[HorribleSubs] Sword Art Online II - 08 [720p].mkv_snapshot_03.01_[2014.08.26_13.39.16]The pace suddenly just picked up. I thought this was going to be another one of those slow episodes where Kazuto made his way to the finals, but no… This turned out to be a lot more than that. I’m not sure if I have this right, but I think this may actually be the finals. They put thirty something players in a big field and let them fight it out amongst themselves. One player is supposed to remain standing (if I understood correctly) and come out as the sole winner of this match. Normally I wouldn’t by fazed by this, but I am getting quite excited since Kazuto, Shino and Death Gun are all on the map. This means that only one of them will win, right?

[HorribleSubs] Sword Art Online II - 08 [720p].mkv_snapshot_16.52_[2014.08.26_13.39.47]Kazuto is still worried about that guy. Does he really have the power to kill someone with some in-game weapon? He doesn’t know, nor is he willing to take any risks. He told Shino to stop Death Gun from killing that guy because he thinks that his victim might die in real life, too. Kazuto is really taking this seriously. The fact that Death Gun is an old Sword Art Online player from a player killing guild must’ve sealed the deal for Kazuto. He’s completely serious and has been acting like a nervous, panicky little brat since he had that talk with Death Gun. I’m quite interested to see how he will deal with this situation next week.

Sword Art Online 2 episode 07

This second Sword Art Online season is full of surprises. This is one of those moments where I’m truly happy that I didn’t resort to reading the manga. I just knew that another season was right around the corner.

[HorribleSubs] Sword Art Online II - 07 [720p].mkv_snapshot_05.30_[2014.08.18_22.35.42]So Kazuto’s little sister and girlfriend already knew about his little secret. Well, some of it. They all found out that Kazuto converted his ALfheim Online account to a Gun Gale Online account. I knew his little sister would be clingy and ask question after question, but I thought for sure that Asuna would be a little more aggressive. She just accepted it… How strange.

So Shino is finally starting to realize that she has a little crush on Kazuto, huh? That’s just predictable. I knew this would happen from the moment they introduced that character. She is falling for Kazuto and that guy, Kyouji or Spiegel, is probably going to lose his mind because of it. I foresee a lot of bad things right now.

[HorribleSubs] Sword Art Online II - 07 [720p].mkv_snapshot_20.54_[2014.08.18_22.36.19]I have so many theories right now about both Kazuto and Shino and the mysterious Death Gun. Quite frankly, I am putting my money on two characters right now. My number one pick would be that insane Sword Art Online player that took charge of that player killing fest that killed so many people. My second pick would have to be the aforementioned Kyouji (or Spiegel as he’s called in-game). It’s only natural that it’s possible to have more than one account at the same time, and he seems like a creepy stalker that has set his sights on Shino-chan. I don’t know why, but I think he might have something to do with that Death Gun character.
