Great ep this week, shame about the subbing, but stuff happens. The Black Swordsman. To shimmer* Unkown Spoiler alert – I believe there use to be a 7th player that was probably Yuuki’s sister :/ naphack BIG SPOILER — The Sleeping Knights had, in fact, a total of nine players. — Dzak No problem thank you for telling me DishwashingSoap Heathcliff, are you an admin? oVexlz Hes a game master, obviously.

I understand you’ve been waiting but christ some of these comments are just rude. that being said thank you to the website host for working as quickly as possible to release this episode can’t wait to see it. fabdab WOW REALLY………… Theresa Hey, I’m just glad that I can watch SAO for free, THANK YOU TRANSLATORS http://qwertyuiop lumi WHY NOT SUBBED YET WHY???? snif* TheMaster Still waiting for the sub 🙂 animexx WHY ISN’T IT SUBBED?! O.O Dzak What is wrong in the company today lol its not their style to keep us waiting! But I am glad that there is SAO season 2 so maybe Ill forgive you 🙂 technonine it is really fun to watch it without subs… only I have no Idea what they are saying 😀 GrayDSlayer same here Avery Why are the Sword Art Online 1 episodes going away? Vatsake They aren’t going away. for example url: http://sao-episodes.tv/sword-art-online-episode-15/ If you want to watch first episode change it to http://sao-episodes.tv/sword-art-online-episode-1/ Avery Thank you for answering. Foogles that was amazing but it is a pity…. there aren´t sub naphack Because they can’t afford a damn scrollbar or drop down menu… Yuukiisbae SPOILER: There’s gonna be action involving kirito and the sleeping knights . ZenitH For all u who did not understand the Japanese, the feels are imminent Jason So when will it get subbed? That is the question. Penous maybe if you tried to look a little more you would know since its been said 100 times already DishwashingSoap Yay 100th comment. http://FagL0rdxXxXx FagL0rdxXxXx NO. NO GOD NO. NOOOOOOOOO Y U DO DIS SHISH TO ME!!??? Mr.layhe I’m so pist off. The episode isn’t subbed and only half of it was action the rest was talking, why even put it up if its not subbed macsbuddy agreed Drengade SUBBED!!! Nick That excalibur though… matterny Probably, Yukki had a sister who fell in a coma. Asuna may be similar to her and Yukki was getting confused. This wold explain her crying. They probably played in VRMMOS before and the “sleeping knight” that the guild is named after is her sister. XarchangelX123 you should go into the lottery you would win the guessing game naphack Hoping for the route, which will kick you in the feels the least, eh? Nah, you are not getting off the hook on this one. A big one is coming. A big kick right in the feels. decorocco Holy shit i bet yukki’s sister was sachi or someone from sao who kirito met and died KageRa assuming of course that they manage to pull off the feels correctly. 4 episodes to go… FoxyDTK When he pulled it out I was waiting to here Thrift SHop “Walk into the club like what sup i got Excaliber! Naw you cant have it i got this from my girl” Penous so people that speak japanese or people that dont care about subs can watch it already. its in big red letters above the video. you dont like it, then wait till it is subbed. the world does NOT atl all evolve around you . markdigi Until its subbed i think that purple haired girl might be a family member of Asuna (i bet its her mom). LittleBigKid2000 Yuuki is Asunas family (Last) name Yuuki is Yuukis (The purple haired girl) given (First) name Yuuki is 15, Asuna is 18 (Phantom Bullet and Alicization arcs) (Yuukis family (last) name is Konno) Do some goddam research before you make a theory Avery You know man that was pretty mean. LittleBigKid2000 Welcome to the internet shadow walker If you watched the episode and understood it you would say something like it to yuuki says something in the boss room and then ansuna confronts her about it then yuukie cry and leaves. I don’t won’t to spoil things but I think something on those line maybe not her mum but someone else josh Why do they keep on delaying the answer too the question why!!!!!!!! its horrible :'( Red You had it coming bro Will Smith Tell the subbers to hurry the hell up! Smurai125 because there are people who can talk japanese Sarah because people are impatient 😛 also there are these things called “character development” and “character history” FrostyDragoon I’m just here like 0_0 watching the screen just waiting O_O And what’s the point in waiting 6 frickin days for it to come up and it’s not even subbed this is supposed to be a SUBBED SAO website where you can watch the anime SUBBED what’s the point in watching it once when it’s not SUBBED then watching it again when it is SUBBED… (Notice how I’m saying SUBBED as if I’m angry that it isn’t SUBBED…IM NOT ANGRY JUST GETTING STRESSED IS ALL…) Dervous Oh noooo why I need subs 🙁 !!!!!!! Smidis Finally! SHREXXX Needed more kirito action!!! i just That was epic! http://littlefinger littlefinger the ‘thank you Yui-chan, thank you Klein-san, I love you Kirito-kun’ part was so sweet! I loved this episode, Asuna and Kirito were so badass, oh I love them both so much. Yuuki kinda pissed me off with all the drama. KageRa You’ll understand in the next episode ShinigamiGames Relax, this arc isn’t very long at all, and it’s centered around Yuuki and her guild. I won’t spoil it for you, but I’ll just say there’s a good chance you’ll atleast shed a tear at the end. If you don’t want to wait, just google “Mother’s Rosario Arc” and check the wiki for the ending. http://littlefinger littlefinger I already read enough spoilers in the comments so I know most of Yuuki’s backstory I believe, but I do not know what this thing everyone said they cried at is..but I am not prepared as I’m pretty sure I’ll cry my eyes out. Also, out of curiosity, will there be any AsunaxYuuki? (she’s with Kirito, it’s wrong, I know..but they’re hot) Avery You know everyone that asked what happened in end, the answer most likely going to be in the next episode. naphack Well, we can still be honest and answer. Like: “what happened?” “Drama happened.” Ninaalf So true, drama happened, and it frustrates me a lot. I am not against some drama, but after the epic cliffhanger of the last episode, and knowing Kirito didn’t have much screen time lately, I really was expecting to see him more. I really wanted to see his battle, and to see some real action. But except for the first seconds, this episode is so soft it bored me… They can’t end an episode like they did in the 20 and after make this one, it’s ruining our expectations ! ice princess soooooo in the end, yuuki & asuna ARE indeed sisters 😀 😀 😀 😀 just as i guessed! oooooooooooooh this is so exciting; i wonder what will happen next n_n naphack How did you come to that conclusion? The sketchy part is: How would Yuuki know, Asuna is her sister? Brian That’s true she met Asuna in a duel. Come on people us common sense. Not to be mean but everyone is smart for a reason. Ziggadizig Yuuki is not Asuna’s sister. Asuna only has a brother. Yuuki is a patient in a hospital suffering from “Acquired Immunity Deficiency Syndrome” (AIDS) who was living completely in ALO. Hoped that helped 😀 Youshallnotknow Except they’re not, I’ve read the visual novels *SPOILER* Yuuki’s sister Ren died from HIV. Youshallnotknow Whoops, meant light novels. Jazza23 no they’re not, i’m not going say anything just simply that, that is incorrect. no matter how much you want to believe it Evan Not really, I thought that for a bit, but looking on the wiki, Yuuki is her first name, like Asuna is her first name. Yuuki’s real name is Yuuki Konno, and Asuna Yuuki. Not related. Just don’t look at the wiki, spoilers… sad spoilers… Charuzu sorry i already did Joyceeee no, they’re not sisters. Asuna just look like Yuuki’s sister. 🙂 http://roblox.com FiretheDerpyFox Thats not true, actually. If you read the Wiki swordartonline.wikia.com/wiki/Sleeping_Knights You’ll see the truth why Yuuki logged out. Irked “Only half” was action – Right, now go piss off and go find something else to watch to satiate your shallow needs. Ignorant watchers like you infuriate the shit out of me. http://America Sean Okeefe I need to watvh this ep again if it gets subbed http://FagL0rdxXxXx FagL0rdxXxXx SERIOUSLY OMG WTF SERIOUSLY-.- ice princess You should be able to hear some of what their saying if you watch enough anime XD SURPRISE AT THE END; did I hear what i THINK I heard!? OMG Yuuki & Asuna? REALLY!? NATG I read the light novels and I think I know what your talking about and its a joke betweenn them. ice princess LOL, I don’t mean the naughty stuff. I meant what Yuuki called Asuna; half way of the episode & then at the very end before she poof’d! blazzee i have been practicing “lucid dreaming” although we live in a world where we cannot game like this every night im in sao <3 google lucid dreaming and you can to!….your welcom firstname.lastname@example.org Still waiting for subbed .__. UniStruction I need the subbed version. Gottagetdat badass kirito. ANGEL me too!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Boylofett406 What. The. HELL! THE ENDING MAKES NO SENSE. Yuuki just goes, “Hey Asuna gtg, screw you” then leaves. THAT’S BASICALLY WHAT SHE’S DOING! TMM well maybe its something we will find out next episode xD naphack This one will hit right in the feels. adriel77 Every time I watch kirito or asuna in a fight mode appart of their greatness I FUCKING LOVE THAT MUSIC. IT’S JUST EPIC . Can’t get enough of that music. It’s so SAO ShinigamiGames Well she didn’t do it in a mean way, she was obviously crying. I won’t spoil it for you, but if you really can’t wait for the ending just google “Mother’s Rosario Arc” and check the wiki. It explains everything. [Skyper] ZaC So we have to wait util tomorow :(((((((. Panda I see that there are no subs and Im like “Mother fucker’ Panda I see that there are no subs and Im like “Mother fucker” http://me Phoenix oh no i think it is mother rosario xD neverrun OH MY GOD OH MY GOD THAT CLIFFHANGER AND OMG IS IT WHAT I THINK IT IS?! THIS CANT BE HAPPENING OH MY GOD IM ABOUT TO DIE WHATS GOING ON :OOOOOO THIS EPISODE WAS THE BEST ONE YET.. BUT I SEEM TO SAY THAT ABOUT EVERY EPISODE THIS IS EPICCCC http://me Phoenix you forgot to start with: sarcastic alert xD but very nice episode Asuna san Spoiler Alert WARNING Yuuki has aids and doesnt have any longer to live thats why she wanted to be on the list because she wanted to be rememberd because she had aids her parents left her and no one wanted to be her friends qq poor Yuuki ShinigamiGames She doesn’t have aids. I believe it’s revealed she has cancer. And it doesn’t make sense to spoil it for everyone. The name of the arc is Mother’s Rosario, they can check the wiki to find the REAL ending themselves 🙂 MrsCreepypasta69 AHHHH the comments is just spoilers XD kazuto-kun i think yuuki is asuna’s sister for real but i don’t see the link… DUBS SPOILERish alert i think yuuki had a sister that she used to play games with but she died, the intro shows this with the two babies naphack Cmon, drop that “I think”. You pretty much figured out most of the stuff about Yuuki’s sister by episode 19 just by looking at the intro and outro. I’m pretty sure, with the information of what the black memorial actually is and Yuuki’s strange behavior, you probably figured out the entire plot by now. An “I think” just won’t cut it at this point. FoxyDTK Actually her “i think” was off Yuuki and Asuna are seperated sisters. No one knows that Suna was in Sao so why would Yuuki act weird around her? Bc she has to leave but wants to be with her………(wait for it)……..SISTER,”I think” That is the plot of this part of the season like last season therewas to parts SAO and getting Asuna from ALO this time it was DIscovering Death Gun, getting EXcaliber, ASuna finding her sister and “Who the hell knows whats coming up in this freaking anime”. SO Yeah the plot of the season changes about every 7 episodes-15 episodes. If you want further detail my Gmail is email@example.com P.S. I’m 12and I think i figured out more than you and randomly guessing your around 14, 16,or 18 guessing by the way you type and your name. So yeah naphack 25, student of computer science. Pleased to meet you. SAO=the best Its just getting better and better!!!! Now its 6days 18hours left to the next episode…;( Im so excited!!:D:D ANGEL why do we gotta wait six days??? I WANT IT NOW 🙁 Blu i know right Rejoda my theory: yuuki’s sister played sword art online, and died in game. before sword art online, the sleeping knights probably had a guild and party of 7, including yuuki’s sister, and played regular MMO’s, and VRMMO’s. But after yuuki’s sister died, they started playing ALO, and looked for a player to replace yuuki’s sister so they could defeat a boss together. yuuki and their group is disbanning, because; school, college, yuuki possibly moving with different family, yuuki having counciling, or some other forced seperation. Kirito Don’t you get it? Yuuki is Asuna’s sister, and somehow they got separated when they were growing up. FoxyDTK OMG thank u some one who freakin sees that everything doesnt have to happen in SAO everyone assumes becaus its called SAO that Yuuki little sistered died in SAO naphack Even though the comment you are referring to was wrong anyway, you got a point here. It’s still called SAO, because it’s all part of Kayaba Akihiko’s vision. GGO wasn’t only about SAO, it was also about Heathcliff’s seed nexus. This arc now is about another technology heavily influenced by Akihiko. Solve I think Yuuki had a sister that died some how or Kirito is part of this because he ”Knows her secret” (The only logical reason it wouldnt have a part with kirito is because she didnt tear up when asked why he couldnt be on the team.) Ethan I don’t get this episode and Klein is so dumb to get lost can he really not find Kirito? I mean HES WEARING BLACK! NekoTinaL WARNING! If you dont want to find out everything that will happen in the next episode or two, dont click these links, but it seems you are a bit curious, so here. You may not like what it says though. Just a heads up. http://swordartonline.wikia.com/wiki/Konno_Yuuki http://swordartonline.wikia.com/wiki/Sleeping_Knights Another week without ALO FFS! Every 2nd episode is a cliffhanger. Of course it was predictable that yuuki would have something to do with asuna because the intro changed compelitly. But in all it was a great episode. I cant wait for the next episode. Another week of boring life without asuna and kirito action. faceplanter70 I don’t really understand what happened between Yuuki and Asuna but i somehow think they are family. You don’t just call someone ”sister” out of nowhere. http://me Phoenix actually i do call close friends of bros (brothers) but in any case i think you are right there is something between those two xD Shadoo My theory is that Yuuki is an AI similar to Yui, but created to be very similar to Kirito. Mr Snuffels I don’t think there will be much more Asuna and Kririto action http://me Phoenix i dont know if i would call this a “cliffhanger”, the purpose of the episode was to defeat the floor boss, aldoh the story continues… lets see who is the little brat to asuna xD naphack If you are just watching for Kirito action scenes, I’d suggest, you stop watching till season 3 comes around. All this arc will do is develop Asuna, get stuff rolling in the real world and kick you right in the feels. (I mean really. It kicks you so hard in the feels, it will leave permanent scars) naphack Of course, there might be a fight scene or two, which was only a side note in the light novel. It literally went “Oh and then there was this fight. That was the outcome. Back to kicking you in the feels.” Mr Snuffels I think it’s good that they are bringing in other characters, but it’s not right to replace THE MAIN character like I think they’re doing http://me Phoenix They are not replacing him (i think…) its a side story to get to know asuna better and love to see that spark back on her 🙂 ShinigamiGames This is the Mother’s Rosario arc, it’s centered around Asuna and her guild and their story. In the next season they’ll do a different arc, which (if it’s the arc I’m thinking of) will be mostly about Kirito again. Obama It’s for character development for Asuna. naphack I highly disagree with your perception of what a “main character” should be. The Anime adaption of SAO has so far done a horrible job developing its side characters. The light novel mainly did it via observations, made by Kirito, inner monologue and precise descriptions. In the Anime, everything regarding side characters is kind of a wash. For someone, who read the light novel, it’s really hard to notice, because for them, the side characters are alive and have substance(due to background information from reading the light novel being available) but honestly. How much can you possibly know about Silica and Liz from watching the anime up till now? Heck, how much could you possibly know about Asuna from watching the anime, if the Mother’s Rosario arc was left out? In the light novel, there was just more information, which got cut out in the anime to cram in more Kirito action scenes. Dark Flame Master Whats up with the ending thou though now got to wait another week http://me Phoenix ppl please, there was a bit of a problem, delayed subs, so what?! shit happens They tryed to solve it quickly so that we fans can fully enjoy the episode and here it is Thanks for the atencion 🙂 The episode it self sweeeeet (drulling over keyboard…) klein struggling over to be seen xD beautifull I was wondering whats the problem with that little girl, is she like asuna sister in reality? she totally freak out at the end dmc bru this was so epic and I can see asuna and yuuki being step sisters maybe adriel77 Nope. Not Asuna sister . Don’t want to spoil it to you but is way diff. Btw.. did u see that Kirito. I hv missed that black beater Orcrist Yeah, I think it was rather silly that some people were unreasonably upset over the delay. These things happen and I think everyone should just be grateful that we even get to watch these episodes on this website with such good quality and excellent translations. While apparently it may seem that Asuna and Yuuki are not sisters, as someone had previously responded, I think it’s possible they might some how be the same person, like different aspects of one another. What makes me think this is the opening theme when you have the two babies rolling, and then turning into little girls, and then they cartwheel and turn into Yuuki. While this is, of course, only speculation, it does make me wonder, and we know that something unusual is definitely going on here. Beastking …………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………THE FUCK JUST HAPPENED! naphack Drama happened. Birdbath6 Hey guys you may not believe me but I’m telling you this is what I think. I think that Asuna and Kirito have a child (not Yui). The anime ‘Accel World’ is made by the same author as sword art online and there are references within it like seeing the nerve gear in accel world a few episodes until the end. Because they are also set in simalar time zones except that accel world is a few years ahead, I think that the second main character kuru-something is Asunas and kiritos daughter. I checked the ages of Asuna and Kirito at the time and they are like 24 and 25 at the time(good time for having a child). Proof of it being her is the name, for example Kirito likes the colour black and so does kuru-whatever, Kirito is called the black swordsman and kuru is called the black king…Any similarities? Also she looks like half Kirito and half Asuna to me. Any other thoughts about this anyone? adriel77 Hv seen both this anime and hv noticed what you say but to me is more like a love of the author for his main anime character kirito, than the hypothesis of their child. As much as creative one author can be to create a total diff world in another anime, he will never get rid of his desire for his first love. So kuru more than kirito and asuna child is the child of the author. This is how I see it. Birdbath6 That’s true but it can still be a possibility naphack Kuroyukihime might certainly be a descendant of Kirito and Asuna. However, the more pressing question for me is: How the hell did she get such a ridiculous name as “Black Snow Princess”? It appears in places, where other people’s real names appear, so it’s certainly no alias unless she managed to do some serious tampering with her information. Griffian No it couldn’t be, that girl was at least a teen and so for her to be their daughter they would’ve had to have her before being trapped in SAO, and neither of them knew each other before then. There’s also the problem of the girl calling Asuna sis, but that might just have been another word lost in translation. Griffian Crap, misread what you said. Forget my previous statement. http://sao-episodes.tv/sword-art-online-2-episode-21/#respond Paul whaaaaa……this is awsome but I though Kirito would be in the boss fight 🙁 http://catherine catherine Kirito told them he would buy them three mins, didn’t he? FoxyDTK WHAT THE HELL I’m pretty sure he can buy way more time than three he probably lasted for 30 minutes then began to worry about Asuna and they noticed he wasn’t in full force and took the oppotunity http://TheKolaBear NotKiritoButPikaDika Wait Wait Wait!!!! Did Kirito died when they beat the boss? Or Maybe the beat them all and left then the army came back and they notice they beat the boss. Also maybe Yuki have a sister in a coma or died because “Sleeping Knights”. Perphaps I want the storyline about Kirito now because this storyline is not good right now so far but its getting more better though Ossyria The feels in the next episode will be too strong… Griffian Forget my previous statement, I misread. JAMES retard i thought Kuru is a Girl coz u said that Asuna and Kirito’s Daughther now u said Kuru is called the black king……… HAHAHA Birdbath6 No she is just called the black king in the game 😛 or snow black princess naphack Any faction leader in Accel world has the title [COLOR] King. No matter the gender, it’s simply a title slapped onto the faction leaders. Koruyukihime is not the only girl among them btw. CptRiven i chan’t answear you without spoiler MrGondzik HYPEEEEEEEEE Birdbath6 Plus Kirito is also in the manga of accel world Later on so that could be another sign. Jonathan Song This episode was AMAZING. Definitely followed the Light novels very well. For anyone who is confused, it’ll be cleared from here and out. Just gotta wait one more week! SomeoneYouDontKnow What happened to kirito after the door closed? Roxas XIII He died FuzenSaba I thought Asuna-sama had an older brother not a sister, I mean she was not supposed to be in sword art online the game but her brother was busy so she played instead. So where is everyone getting this sister theory? If you’ve read on please do not tell me what happens i’m just interested on where everyone gets these theories. dog8808 ———-spoilers——————— I’ve read the book they are not sisters. and there’s a reason y there called the sleeping knights (*cough**cough* there sleeping in a hospital *cough**cough*. (this is the saddest story in sword art online and i’m so happy there animating it) dog8808 you can ask me questions about the rest of the story I’ve read up to book 10 adriel77 I hv read them too as I love sao but let them see the anime series. Would be better so they will feel the real meaning why kirito smtimes is not the leading character and will understand it by loving it cause of the development of yuuki. Or I hope so :p Vangran As sad as I am knowing how it will end, I am glad that Yuuki was able to find some true friends. And Kirito was freaking awesome! As usual. Sylafrs That’s not hard to find out, if you watch the opening.. xD Haven’t seen the manga, so, the opening has spoiled me so hard (many times) xD lightfang142 where do you read the light novels on the internet? dog8808 you can download the light novels here -> http://www.vn-meido.com/k1/index.php?topic=1198.0 Liam I did not understand that episode…..a I know is that kirito was a TOTAL BADASS Excalibur are they sleeping because they are in a coma and the only way they can communicate is through the nervegear or Amusphere and the reason kirito didn’t really fight her as well was because he knew why she was doing all of this? (I haven’t read the novels but I might) dog8808 you can download the light novels here -> http://www.vn-meido.com/k1/index.php?topic=1198.0 haha I knew it !!!!! So does asuna find out they are dying? sono toko If you read them in english, where did you get them? I’ve been scouring the internet and I’ve only found them in Japanese… SomeoneYouMightNotKnow What happened to kirito after the door closed? KiritoRocks Was kind-iv disappointed in this epsiode because kirito wasnt in it for a long time but he did use his excalibur which was great. naphack This is just trolling at this point… Man, how I hate this anime adaption for omitting any information on the side characters. The light novel is rich of information where the anime has only action scenes to show. Kurapika Oh man…It’s so annnoying to be left in such a suspense at the end of every episode,in nearly any anime! Although I it is somewhat hard to wait a week for the next episode to be uploaded,I guess it’s more interesting this way. Simmons okay okay okay. This is probably the most outlandish theory out there right now but based off of Yukki’s personality, how she constantly plays I think she had a sister who used to be there other Sleeping Knights member. Considering how they have all been through so many games together maybe, just maybe, Yukki had a sister in SAO. In the beginning intro you see two black hair, pale skinned kids running and then one disappears and becomes yukki. One Last Word. Sachi. She looks a lot like the girl in the intro. Sorry to go all conspiracy theorist Rejoda your theory could be correct! i had a similar theory!! Simmons YAY IM NOT THE OLY CRAZY PERSON. but I wanted to post it to have proof that I posted first. Glad I am not the only one who thinks that Aizakku Nope, She’s not Sachi. She used to be the guild leader of the Sleeping Knights, and when she died… Yuuki took over her place. naphack It’s more simple yet not that simple. Let me phrase it this way: Yuuki has no direct ties of any sort to SAO. Neither has her sister. They are not related to the game SAO in any way. Simmons Do you know what happens? I would love to hear some other ideas naphack I can give you some hints. Well, I have read the light novel, so anything concrete from me will be a massive spoiler. I will be subtle about it and just try to direct you into the right direction. I won’t tell you anything which hasn’t been shown so far, but the combination of these 3 readily available informations is possibly enough to figure it out. ——-MILD SPOILERS AHEAD——– Anyway, as anyone should have figured out by now, Yuuki’s sister died, as was hinted at by her reaction at the end of this episode and the symbolic animation in the opening, where Yuuki and her sister keep running until one of them vanishes and the Zekken avatar appears in ALO. Now, if you go over the facts once more: 1) The sleeping knights have tons of experience with VR worlds and spent countless hours in the virtual reality. 2) The sleeping knights want their names written on the Monument before they disband. 3) One member of the sleeping knights is dead. Paragon View at own risk, not sure if this is a spoiler or not. Best to be safe anyway… You’re absolutely right up to the part where her sister being in SAO and being Sachi. She had an older sister named Aiko who died which is why one of the kids in the intro disappears into just Yuuki. Aiko isn’t shown in SAO because she already died but is mentioned in the light novel. ??????? Anon Read the Light novel (SAO Vol 7 – Mother Rosario) Dumb ASS!!! angelica I think she had a sister and her sister was that one girl kirito knew from his first guild how died. I’m just guessing though.. I’m probably wrong. Starcaller Yuuki’s sister is Sachi? that would be weird… asdasdasd Its obvious why they are called sleeping nights. THey are probably ill in bed and this is the only way to get any fun in their lives. naphack Woah, man, even if it seems obvious to you, careful with them spoilers. http://sao-episodes.tv/sword-art-online-2-episode-21/ AsunaxKirito While I was watching this episode I kinda figured something out, I don’t know if it’s right or not but I think Sleeping Knights is actually a group of people that were in the hospital. I think they have cancer. I don’t know if I’m right and I didn’t figure out the part where Yuuki kept calling Asuna sister but maybe they were sisters but never knew it? Or maybe Yuuki had a sister that was just like Asuna. I don’t know but I just have this feeling that the Sleeping Knights is actually just a group with a sickness. Guess I gotta find out in next weeks episode. Xilitain I think you may be right, but I thought you might want to know that in japan the whole “sister” and “brother” thing doesn’t always mean that they are siblings the same words are also used for somebody around the right age that you think of as a good friend. sauce: in my third year of Japanese at high school (so not a lot of experience but enough to know some stuff.) Xilitain Annnnnnnnnd after actually watching the episode I’ve relised that they do actually make a big deal out of the whole “sis” thing so forget what i just said D: Shadow Nightmare 367 This is a side story, it’s not important whether you’re interested in the current arc or not. It has no real impact on the story at all. Consider it similar to a filler arc where there’s epic boss fights, whining and determination for whatever the writers put into it. SpookyHeart It really makes me sad to know what happened next. If you have any feelings, you will be very sad when the truth comes out. nimph Alright were back to Kirito being a BAD ASS Spoiler Look at the ending, Asuna is crying. Where you ask, welp at Yuukie’s grave. Blakuvious I totally called that Yukki and Asuna were sisters. At least I hope i called it that would be bad ass! This series better keep going I don’t even care if there’s a main storyline I’d be perfectly happy with just seeing the character development and action… ZenitH the only reason they are emotional is because she freaking dies dude, thats what they mean by they cant play in sping. dont complain trollking wtf you noob spoiler monkey !!! Spectraj Idk What is this fu##### Episode(except Kirito save Asuna and the ending) I have waiting 6 days to watching a #######.All I want is that Kirito and Asuna continue their life!!!!! lobaking lol 😀 Mother Rosario is mainly about Asuna, and Yuuki. not about Asuna – Kirito :p if you want more Kirito in action, probably Underworld. but there is no Asuna in Underworld :p but still awesome Liam I did not understand that episode…..a I know is that kirito was a TOTAL BADASS Ryan Its a shame that they didn’t show Kirito and Klein’s battle of EPICNESS, especially with Excalibur naphack Did you mean to say “It’s a shame, they didn’t show Kirito’s heroic sacrifice”? Thew OMFG I NEED TO KNOW WHYYY Kipaa SPOILERS on the wiki it said that the Sleeping Knights are all terminally ill thats why they are disbanding. they are prob all going to do die and Asuna is not Yuuki’s sister. Yuuki’s twin sister died at the age of 14. I’m assuming thats why asuna cant join them and yuuki just thinks of asuna as an older sister figure Hugo Storm so yuuki upset cos she doesnt have much longer to live. yuukis sister Ran, the leader to sleeping knighs has alredy passed away and asuna reminds her of her sister? im guessing DudeGuyMcBro we should all bow our heads, in memory of that poor makicarp that gave its life is ALO. JIN something like that I guess Omega I hate to tell you this, but the manga (and the anime which follows it) doesn’t spend an awful lot of time on Kirito + Asuna’s life together, aside from occasional moments throughout the adventures Rejoda i know the real story!!! yuuki’s sister ren hd hiv when she was born, and they were twins. ren died at 14. they all started playing together in a hospice device, and ren made “sleeping knights” guild! once ren, and two others died, yuuki took over the guild. its on wiki!! http://TheKolaBear NotKiritoButPikaDika How did ren died though from a coma or birth? naphack So you know the real story? Clap… Clap… Clap… Want a cookie? Jazza23 you, i like you. you know what’s up Rejoda yes!!! *nom nom* Anthony So what’s up with Asuna? Any relation or similarity? Or just memories? or woot? 😛 Some1 Asuna is not related to Yuuki, just memories. lee how do u know this Daemon Leave it on the goddamn Wiki cunt gbdude So many spoilers in comments :,(… I’m not gonna read comments any more… Rejoda look on wiki (sleeping knights) and it says the truestory. Yuuki’s twin sister Ren died of HIV, and they used to play together. ASUNA IS NOT YUUKI’S SISTER MIWA hey don’t revewi the next episode Jazza23 you know what even though i already knew that no one likes spoilers, jerk Vlad-kun Gagh spolors how dare u (spoiling is just rude dude) Daemon Are people seriously saying that? First that stupid twins playing as one crap now this? People take shit at face value way too damn much http://roblox.com FiretheDerpyFox Actually, If you look at the Intro, You see two little girls that turn into toddlers and then children and then the second one dies making Yuuki be the only one there. Jenkins I swear to god every single time i try and read comments someones spoiling something. can you fucking not? KIRITO LOVER A female is going to die and some is joining kirito again which means kirito’s back!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! mother f**kers (NOT GOING TO SPOIL THE ANIME) CorCor_yo This is dumb. Kirito just proved himself to be the best player in ALO yet he barely gets any credit to how bad ass he really is. He better start showing up more. You cant just run the main character under the bus. He needs to be in this with them. This is some bulllll. (in my opinion) Harrison I know what you mean, but I think what’s going on is that he’s taking a bit of a breather from being better than everyone else. This particular arc, “mothers rosario” is focused around yuuki and asuna, according to the story itself. Kirito simply isn’t the main character. Understandably so, too, considering what he’s put up with so far. I wouldn’t worry though, theres more kirito to come in later arcs lobaking Mother Rosario arc is a story about Asuna and Yuuki. you’ll soon know why the arc is called Mother Rosario. and Kirito is a side-character in this arc. but, you’ll still see how awesome he is later on irl (outside ALO) too though 😀 its an awesome arc 😀 luis so i did some research cause i wondered why yuuki was crying so i searched up the sleeping knights i got the info that i needed then read a little too far and found out what happens in a future episode (not going to spoil it) but i got really sad on what i read i-i KageRa you didnt get the full impact if you didn’t read the book. It made me cry. NOTHING makes me cry Blank try not to cry, try not to cry, cry a lot >.< pingasmaster what volume of the book? Jermu WTF IS THIS? KIRITO ONLY FOR LIKE 3MINS? ANS WHY ISNT ANYTHING HAPPENING JUST EMOTION BULL SHIT? i so mad i just wanna see kirito doing something awesome ):< Nik Mobile player stops at the end http://ee kana yuuki is cute but asuna is beautiful OnlyOne that’s what makes an anime boring, to make something interesting to most people is having other people focused on instead of 1 person. that’s what they did wrong in sao sea season 1, they focused kirito and asuna mainly, now they are focusing all the main people like they should instead of one person. don’t get me wrong kirito is bad ass just it matters what the anime makes the majority feel like is what matters the most. dontkillme it stops at 17:20 why is this happening? Shadow1862 That’s happening to me too. I think it’s because I’m watching it on my phone though. Critic of Anime At the very end im like “well your a bitch” http://redhunter Ryan Liang Me too why did she ignore asuna like that and just log out DUBS I believe it’s because she called her sis and yuuki had a sis that died that she used to play games with and thinking about it made her really emotional and sad naphack That point about the sister is mostly correct, however, that’s not the reason. While it seems like a plausible answer, it’s actually not because of her painful memories. Her tears certainly were because of her memories, but logging out was a deliberate action after she made a sudden realization. Basically, she realized, something went wrong and had to do damage control. The reason is actually the same as why she didn’t choose Kirito because he “realized her secret”. –SPOILERS FOR THOSE INTERESTED IN DETAILS– She’s logging out, because she realizes, she’s become too attached to Asuna and, in turn, Asuna has become attached to her, which for Yuuki, who’s about to die within the next three months, is the worst possible scenario. Yuuki was banking on getting some kind of hardcore gamer, who’d do the boss run with them and then move on. She absolutely doesn’t want to befriend Asuna, because in her opinion, this will only bring sadness upon Asuna after she learns the truth about the Sleeping Knights. Dolfoo23 You also forgot to mention that she started crying because Asuna has some similarities to her twin sister, that is why she started calling her “Sister”. Moonlightshadow920 Stop being a asshole about it. If you wanna see action all the time then find a new anime. The story is great. Yes it did change a lot after sao and alo but it’s still a great show. You wanna go off at them for making somthing awesome because kirito isn’t on screan 24/7 then go fuck yourself Pioin well where had u find the informations ? http://thatperson that person i found some information here: http://swordartonline.wikia.com/wiki/Sleeping_Knights jj200275 swordartonline.wikia.com http://bleh.com Bleh Dude, but like they said, he can never be serious anymore. For him, being serious is bad because that is when the game is real life. Also, this arc is all about Asuna. They’re not shoving him under the bus. They’re developing the other character. The whole next arc is super long and all about him, so stop bitching. Awbbie Totaly thought that the mother was going to interupt them during the battle. Amarie I love kirito but its nice to see asuna get some screen time since during GGO she was placed as more of a cameo Vlad-kun Well it’s Tru that kirito is the main hero of the series if u notice that ever ever mine story plot is not about kirito in reality he’s more of a badasse side character and that most episode side are fockes on his complain more then him up till not it’s just been mostly from his perspective but homily unless it’s this searise is more about his friends and his love for asuna and them then it is about kirito ( not that idont wont to see more of him he’s just to badass) and I just as much as u wont to see him kick ass but it’s a tease cus the southern knows this so he dosnt let us see it so we will keep watching KizunaFTW We can’t do anything about that. This site isn’t really affect changes on the anime. Joyceeee aww, I’m scared to watch the next episode.. I might cry,. It breakes my heart, just thinking of it.. 🙁 Joyceeee Don’t worry on the next episodes, he’ll have the spotlight. Proxen I think Yuuki is in life support connected to this and they have to disconnect her very soon… ChupolsXD if you didn’t read the light novel. This series is intended for Asuna :))) Just enjoy the anime maaan ^_____^ http://toyyya toyyya This chapter is supposed to be all about asuna DarkSwordsman Plot twist: Asuna and yuuki are actually sisters.. Hence asuna’s full name “Asuna Yuuki” naphack nah. For Asuna, Yuuki is the family name, for Yuuki, it’s her first name. They even make a joke at one point that if they married, the result’d be “Yuuki Yuuki”. Kitsune Nope. Yuuki is her first name, her full name is Konno Yuuki http://nuffer nuffer Honestly as long as they include krirto being badass every once in awhile I’m fine Cuz now I’m actually like where this story’s going like I heard she’s a computer like yui Chan or she’s asunas sister, like I’m dying to find out what yuuki Chan actually is cuz I don’t know who to believe anymore Josh that’s what i thought at first. but trust me. its not true. read my comment at the top Eugeo mild Spoiler: It’s true they are NOT sisters,i read the books. How can you be so certain if you didn’t? Eugeo Sorry Josh, I thought you were referring to naphacks comment. SAOFAN It seems like every SAO opening gives away the entire arc plot. The death gun person was predicted from the opening showing the person turn into death gun. They didn’t have any suspense do they? Guy With the first SAO opening too they showed Asuna and Kirito eating together which was a big spoiler that they would love each other later on. SAO recorder Are u stupid when did they give away death guns identity in the SAO opening, he butns uo to show death gun on the horse not really a spoiler unless u know who death gun is [Skyper] ZaC Subed XD YEAH!!!!!!! SAO the beast <3 Asuna Your damn right go SAO XD naphack Nah, we need more expansion on the goddamn side characters. The anime adaption cut out way too much information, which would have helped their character development just to cram in longer Kirito action scenes. It’s easy to cash on on the main character’s popularity, however, with SAO, this just won’t work. naphack Also, “the best” is still debatable. He may be slightly more skilled on the technical side of things, like slicing up projectiles, but he still loses to Yuuki in a 1v1. KenMatthew Wow! YUUKIE IS ASUNA’s SISTER!!!! ,, THATS WHY YUUKIE IS CALLING ASUNA SIS, Also -,- Yuukie – Asuna yuukie 😮 ENzo Is there a manga of this part? http://sao-episodes.tv/sword-art-online-2-episode-20/ Joey yuuki kept making me go hard Usling Lel 😀 naphack Believe me, you don’t want to do that. Nothing good will come from it. Seriously. Minori-chan This episode was awsome. I can’t wait for the next one. Kitito was badass. SuckAssOtaku The video won’t load past ~17 minutes on the smartphone player. Someone should fix that. swordart it should work fine now. Sorry for this. Boylofett406 Well, time for me to cry in bed. Shenro blacky-sensei 😀 /tg/ aww, damnit… its like Girl in the morning dew all over again. *eyes moisten* /tg/ having read the book only makes it worse. *eyes moisten* why do i do this to my self… demonlord666 Dammit I can’t wait til the next one comes out *jumps up an down laughing* Josh SPOILER ALERT: I AM 100% CERTAIN so… in the new title 2 sisters grow up together and then one goes away and yuuki is the only one left. asuna reminds yuuki of her sister who died (reason unknown) and when asuna told yuuki she had called asuna “sis” felt embarrassed and hurt so she left the game. Lawl Read this if you want to know, The truth, it’s a spoiler tho so be alert!. http://swordartonline.wikia.com/wiki/Konno_Yuuki NekoTinaL Spoilers (which should be obvious because of the thread) Sister most likely passed away because of illness (I wont say what because it is stated in the link above) The sis part, I feel it is more like Asuna reminds Yuuki of her own sister and she gets upset about it because of the resemblance (personality or physical) and doesnt want to talk about it, as she most likely will pass away soon and doesnt want to create another connection that will be lost. So she logs out to avoid explaining more and making more people upset. Foxsquirel SPOILERS Your 100% correct NekoTinaL Spoilers :3 Surprisingly, I did not read up on Ran until after so I was guessing majorly about the resemblance. To think I was right is actually funny how I connected two and two XD naphack Pretty much this. She wasn’t logging out because she couldn’t handle her own emotions. Logging out there was a deliberate decision in order to keep the damage she’d do to a minimum. Launilot But Asuna’s full name is Asuna Yuuki so maybe they are sisters? Tairikku Why do I feel like I will shit my pants from feelz in the next few episodes? :/ Destructopuppy When you find out the reason for the tears, you shall my friend. You shall… Hazard Anyone else get the feeling they’ve all got terminal illnesses and they only have until Spring to live? Was originally thinking they were all comatose but Yuuki logged out at the end there. The name Sleeping Knights would make sense in either sense. mikuhatsunechan doesn’t this one follow the light novel story line? if it did, yuki would have a terminal illness, at least.. i think the novels said it was used as some sort of therapy.. 🙂 naphack —-SPOILER—- The “until spring” is not that fixed. The condition of two members keeps worsening and they are expected to not make it longer than spring. Three members(of which one was the previous leader, Yuuki’s sister) are already dead. They will disband in spring, because there will only be 4 left, which will make the number of dead members exceed the number of living ones. Midnight I have been hit. By the feel train. naphack Already? The ending will be a huge kick in the feels, then. Next chapter, the feels train will take you on a ride to the depths of hell. Jeenxed oh yes, the feel train will smack very very hard, and dont forget, the last episode feels will make you run down the strret naked crying “WTFFFFFFFFFFFFF” 21 What’s 9 + 10? naphack 42 El I’m guessing Yuuki had a twin sister who’s died. Maybe they did VRMMORPGs together? If you look in the opening sequence there’s a pair of twins running along, and they jump into the air and then there’s just Yuuki. Seems most likely to me. Dekkameron My thinking is tha the entire guild Sleeping Knights are all in a coma or on death beds, hence the finality. It would make sense on many levels. Times that would explain the name Sleeping Knights! “you’re fugly” it would not explain however the fact that if yuuki logged out of the amusphere she would noot be able to go back in game Marion Cheung I just noticed something isn’t Kirito the main character why was it that Asuna got in but not him Ziggy Well before alot of people were sayin Asuna didn’t get enough screen time. I think it’s about time she got more attention. PoliteMonkey As well, its because 7 is the max party size, any more than that, and only their leader shows up :p Duh What are you complaining about kirito had his bad ass moment in this arc where he showed up and held off that other guild, moreover this arc is meant to develop Asunas character, who is the MAIN HEROINE! Jimmeh Tbh it was the same guild just a part that was either behind schedule or else took long to form Youth Sword Art Online, not Kirito Online It follows a group of characters in the world not just one. HideSeekDie Would be awesome though if in a next season (IF there will be one) Klein suddenly becomes the center of the story for a few episodes xD Blaedryn And that folks. Is an AMAZING idea. Shino dont you remember yuuki said it couldnt be kirito because he found out her secret http://127898070064 Legendary Samurai Well Kirito is like an detective cause he had solved many mystries thats why he known his secret and gaved the address to Asuna http://127898070064 Legendary Samurai Because Kirito had done many things so its time for Asuna Blaedryn The reason this arc pretty much focuses on asuna us ’cause the 5 people in the world who actually like asuna were complaining she wasn’t getting enough “screen time.” i just heard some people say this so…and it sounds realistic to me so. yea. Gorthox 21 The Sentinel 21 XD ZenonPrototype 9 + 10 = Not nearly a high enough number. Himayeth I think that yukkI is actually asunas mum Daniel No, I was thinking that but Yuuki called Asuna sis. Aksel 910 hahaha sword_art_online_lover! so funny hahah http://faizyusof SuperCell Im Sorry Asuna-san, But We???? But we wht? Kurwa Where is That sniper gurl :3 ? Haida yeah I thought nearly the same but i guess its more like one of them maybe Yuuki is a bout to die in real life or something like that. Without her, there are no sleeping knights anymore…. well its my opinion^^ and that would explain why she is THAT serious what Kirito mentioned. FedoraYT …hmm, maybe, but remember, its rare that players use their real names for their in-game characters… http://www.rtsoft.com/forums/member.php?131510-Elusive Elusive 20:19, it looked like Asuna and Yuuki were going to kiss XD http://www.rtsoft.com/forums/member.php?131510-Elusive Elusive 21:19 Cakegirl13 IKR!!! Dangittunes PEACE everyone 🙂 krone_zero Hahaha GO HARD, Kirito! 😀 JIN anybody bored of waiting watch this anime called angel beats or log horizon, code geass, mahouka koukou no rettousei, farytail 2014, akame ga kill, the world god only knows, Puella Magi Madoka Magica and more stuff JIN Just my favorites (kinda) someguy_spoilin ok heres the background of da sleeping knights. Everyone is an illl patient who meet up in a single room, they were using what is called a Medicuboid which is the healing version of the NerveGear, they use it to heal, but for Yuuki which has a sister named Konno Aiko ( Ran ), died cuz of HIV ( born with it ), they are going to disband the group cuz that Yuuki will die before spring ( idk whts the cause ) thats why she keeps on crying everytime asuna talks about the guild, But im glad that Mothers Rosario Arc will end eventually cuz i want to see more Kirito & Asuna action. Jinx The SAO game too strong. Will Why can’t I watch the last 6:00 minutes of the episode. Is anyone else having trouble with it too Cloudhaven Hmmmmmmmm all I have to say is if Yupik turned out to have a crush on asuna or dies at the end or something there better be a season 3 to make up for the awkwardness if it was the crush and sadness If it was the death Or something crazy anyone I wonder if asuna will really have to marry someone her parents set her up with and for thos of u who didn’t know this AWWW c’mon they have been dropping hints in the last like 4/5 episodes iKaori Yes, it’s killing me. ;-; Cloudhaven Yuuki not Yupik srry NekoTinaL Yuuki is going to die from HIV, like her sister. As her entire family had it. Info in this link: http://swordartonline.wikia.com/wiki/Konno_Yuuki Sakuya kirito went BEAST!!!! YouJustGotKiritowned Did smartphone player stop at the part where they’re eating for anyone else? Shadow1862 Yea, it happened to me also Kirigaya Kazuto This anime was built on the epicness of the Black Swordsman, AKA: Kirito. Now it seems they don’t care to show him at all. We only get to catch glimpses of what once used to be the best anime I have ever seen. I only watch this anime because of the respect I have for its first season. I will continue to watch it hoping that they can reclaim their former glory before it is too late. http://shemar19 Shemar Dont worry if they make a season for the alicazation arc theyre will be plenty of Kirito. http://shemar19 Shemar Dont worry if they make a season for the Alicization arc they’re will be plenty of Kirito. Kirito I agree. I was so excited for the 2nd season to come out only to be horrendously disappointed. Kirito_true_hero Well yeah I love seeing Kirito kick all the @$$ in the interwebs, but like they’ve tried to get across Kirito is never gonna be raging bad @$$ that he was because no one’s life is in danger. That’s something truly commendable in a person when they understand certain situations require certain attitudes and not to mix them up. naphack You said it right. The ANIME was built on the epicness of the Black Swordsman. Shame, the anime is based on a light novel and has to loosely follow the plot line of that novel, which was actually built on a coherent world and great character interaction. Yela The anime was also partly built on the main Heroine which is Asuna. Kirito got his moments during the GGO arc while Asuna became this weak HEALER girl. It’s high time Asuna get’s to be in the spotlight. She wasn’t even shown that much on the GGO arc. Atleast Kirito still has his moments here. Don’t be unfair to the girl viewers who wants some Asuna heroine action. I’m a girl btw who is excited to see Asuna kick ass. http://ewrfgWET cake the ending … well not that bad of an ending at first i were confused but think ! ansuna’s name yuuki-asuna and that girl yuuki sisters !!! (duh) xD naphack A GIRL!!! *drools* Nah, just kidding. If you want a complex and engaging story, the anime sadly isn’t the one to go by. The light novel has way better narrative. While the novel having a better narrative than the anime is pretty much natural, what the animators should be really ashamed about is the fact, that the novel even pulls off the fight scenes way better than the anime does. SAO recorder Idiot, this arc is mainly about Asuna so of course kirito won’t be in it much, and they are definitely goin to make a season for the alicazqtion Arc message for shemar Kirito .-. If Virtual Reality Games come out is anybody else gonna wait to go in until your friend comes out ;-; Adonis I’d be the friend that went in 🙂 Sebby-Kun Same here! I could care less whether or not I got trapped in a life or death virtual world like SAO. Foxsquirel Yep Krazyguy75 THE FEEL TRAIN IS COMING. BRACE FOR IMPACT. Seth Feldmann Yeah. Hornet This wasn’t really a cliff hanger that wants you to die waiting for the next episode (IE Last Week) http://facebook Gohar bashir ._. Thats weird Asuna is forgetting about her own guild with kirito ._. and Others and what the sadist part of Yuuki damn ._. Am started to feel sad Why SAO getting sad ._. naphack Currently, Asuna has no guild. She hasn’t been in any guild, after SAO, probably, because it would invoke memories from her time in the KOB. Actually, the sleeping knights are the first guild, she feels comfortable with. Zsair WHY!!!!! Why does this happen to me every arc?!?!? I get happy and I go hard and then they make shit hit the fan harder then my grandmas hip on a stair case!! GG SAO YOU DONE MADE ME CRY AGAIN!!! demonlord666 On my opinion I think it won’t be as good without kirito Jmoney Just to clarify , how can yukkii or w e be a A.I when she just logged out in front of asuna. It was a good episode I just hope they make it epic Bobkelso Only wantend to see the fight with kirigaya and klein….. Gay episode! ABC All kinds of anger built up inside of me. First kirito is shown for like two seconds, i know this arc is about asuna, but i wanted toy at least see him fight that group. Secondly i wish asuna would fight more because she is really good. Third they need more pvp fights the boss battles are a little boring and they show pvp fights in more detail. Last WTF was the deal at the end i hate and love cliffhangers it almost threw my phone. But still love sao no matter what kyle5953c I tried all the players and all of them stop at the end when they are eating. Please fix. Thanks, Kyle5953c Ian Whats the piano song that plays when asuna talks to them before the boss battle Get Kirito-ed i feel let down, i wanted to see MORE on Kirito, other than that it was an alright episode. I think that something happened to Yuuki’s sister and Asuna reminds her of that. Mackenzie *SPOILER ALERT* so this is what I think is happening. I think that yukki and her guild mates are actually just AI’s playing as players and that all of them are just copys based off of real people that they’ve meet before. does anyone else think so? naphack Watch the intro. There’s plenty of symbolism in there, which says otherwise. Foxsquirel That isn’t possible, AI’s can’t have health, beat bosses or get their name on the board. Tomadesu but in the previous arc the girl klein saved had health, boosted their hp, and helped defeat the boss. And she had a name in the party. but i know these people arent AI’s sadly Tong Lor Man i thought they were at least going to show some kirito vs whole party 🙁 naphack I was hoping for them showing Kirito’s health dropping. Could have built some suspense instead of having some sort of static fight, where only one guy moves while the rest stands and watches, with Kirito just standing there. They didn’t even show Kirito’s remaining health, when they made it to the boss room(it was perilously low at that point) and just had him standing there in the exact same pose, he started the battle with like he was frozen in time. I just don’t get why I’m still watching this anime, when the light novel did a far better job even with the fight scenes, which usually are the forte of anime adaptions… NekoTinaL You know what? I legit though Yuuki was an AI or something like Yuki(Kirito’s and Asuna’s “Child”) and that was her secret. This was my thoughts because I didn’t go to the comments on the last episode and looked at them on this one. Feel a bit saddened by what I found out. I won’t spoil anything but if you want to read more about it links are below. I REPEAT!! SPOILERS AND IT IS RATHER SAD!!!! YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!! http://swordartonline.wikia.com/wiki/Sleeping_Knights http://swordartonline.wikia.com/wiki/Konno_Yuuki Also side note:read up on each because it is very interesting Foxsquirel Wow I read the articles I didn’t see that coming AT ALL http://redhunter Ryan Liang Why do i have to wait 5 more days why why!!!!!!!!! NekoTinaL I know right!! Major shock but it was super interesting to read jawesome Konno Yuuki was a child suffering from “Acquired Immunity Deficiency Syndrome” (AIDS) since birth; her parents, as well as her sister Aiko, were infected too. Despite this, she had always believed that one day she would be healed and continued to strive towards her goals. However, during the course of 4th grade, a group of students found out that Yuuki was a carrier of HIV and began spreading rumors about Yuuki. Because of this, Yuuki was forced to transfer to another school. After transferring to a new school, Yuuki’s condition gradually became worse and the reason suspected by her doctor was from the rejection caused by the parents and teachers of her old school. Her parents died two years before, and her sister the year before the events of Mother’s Rosario. mikuhatsunechan noo the feels are uncontrolable… 🙂 naphack UNMARKED SPOILERS ABOVE! Kirito_true_hero What kind of @$$hole doesn’t put a capitalized spoilers alert sandwiched between exclamation points before this? Ty Boogie For everyone mad for this arc being “so much feelz not enough Kirito”, you might think otherwise if you just bear with it. You probably will be disappointed with a strange lacking of general Kirito-epicness, but I venture to say that all of these feels are what makes the Mother’s Rosario arc awesome, at least by the end. ARico i´m sorry but i got to read the light novels. i just can´t wait this much. Tigranes Spoiler Alert…well maybe it is. There is a good reason why the Guild’s name is The Sleeping Knights and why they are going to “disband and not play the game for a while…” Many people have already figured it out in the comments Ian What is the name of the song that plays when asuna talks to the others before the boss fight? Destructopuppy It’s a variation on “Luminious Sword” from the OST, the original plays first when Asuna and Kirito take down the Ruin Kobold Sentinel in the first boss fight. Ian I mean the song that plays after 08:00 friend! Helpful Helper Darude – Sandstorm Steve Yea there names were on floor 17 and floor 18 Dolfoo23 Does anyone know the name of the song at 20:00? Dolfoo23 Sorry it’s like around 20:10 asuna_lover What if the reason Asuna’s mum is mean is because she misses her other daughter ,Asuna’s lost sister. absolute sword NOT darude sandstorm. Rejoda its a song thats new to the series, so i think the name will come out once SAO2 sound track is released Dolfoo23 Yeah that’s what I was thinking, I found that out after I searched through the whole internet lol, it’s going to be the 2nd SAO2 sound track, but I really want it to come out because that piece sounds amazing! Mike I think Yuuki is in a coma or has some sort of terminal illness, and expects to die before spring. Probably not, but man, would that be a tear jerker. Ryan So am I the only one who came to this conclusion? In the intro there were two girls and as they grew up one disappeared and Yuuki’s character appears. She accidentally calls Asuna “sis” because Asuna must remind her of her sister, why would she cry from that? Her sister died, why would Asuna remind Yuuki of her sister? They were in an VRMMO. Her sister died while trapped in SAO. Destructopuppy OH THAT one. It’s really quiet… I don’t recognise it from the OST of any of the affiliated music though, so it’s either new, or was never released independently…. gotb204 Was kiritos name up there ? Jo6436 yeah for floor 17 and Asuna for floor 18 UnrealClick Yup, floor 17 glear Indeed, his name is up there. He’s on Floor 17. There’s a few other character’s up there as well–Klein is on 14, Asuna is on 18 and 21 as well as 27, Leafa is on 16, and Sakuya (Sylph leader, ALO arc) is on Floor 12 YANNAH04 yes proalexander678 He won’t be back for awhile in the books Tebasilie It is SO not nice to leave it at that… YANNAH04 yes in 17 floor Silvertriforce yes also kliens and asunas rin the song is a tiny love you can check here –> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z4Lza3FbtE4 Q Woah. Woah. Woah wait. Wait what. WHAT. WHAT JUST HAPPENED? Ian I dont think this is the song friend if you hear carefully.Still have not found it! rin ok i finally found it, it’s tender feeling https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4_-teNonZ_4 Paul I loved it, its nice to step away from Kirito being undefeatible. That a child bested him was definiately something I enjoyed. Even in Bleach Ichigo had to lose sometimes to make it slightly more believable. This is called character building, something I think the series sorely lacks. Carry on with the emotional as much as you like 😀 Chrysheight Yuuki seems to be a lot more aggressive and tomboyish in the anime than in the LNs, I don’t think it really fits her character later on. i just Relax man, kirito gone easy on her, he didn’t even dual blade. naphack He’d still lose. There’s a huge difference between the 2 of them and the only thing Kirito actually has going for him is that he spent more hours swinging swords. Dualspades Kirito wasn’t going serious at all, they even stated that Kirito won’t fight serious ever again. The way he’s fighting now is more Goku style where winning doesn’t matter but testing his and others abilities. If put in the situation he’d definitely kick that girls ass, one blade or two it wouldn’t matter. He has the most resolve out of any character in this show which makes him the greatest, not the length of time he practiced swinging his sword. Yela Nope, SPOILERS. “Kirito claimed that, even with Dual Blades, he believed it would have been impossible for him to win against Yuuki.” naphack The most resolve out of any character bar Yuuki* naphack This may have sounded dickish, so let me rephrase it: Even though Kirito’s resolve and determination may be exceptional, it still pales in comparison to Yuuki. There will be lots of SPOILERS ahead, so be warned. So far, Yuuki has: -more diverse experience with VR worlds -more time spent in VR worlds -faster reaction times -the will to prove her existence, no matter what -the determination to keep going until she dies to make sure, the wishes of her guild will come true Also, Kirito may have fought to stay alive for 2 years during the SAO incident, but at that point, Yuuki has been fighting to stay alive for more than a decade already. There is simply no comparison. People always say, Kirito has yet to get serious in a fight against Yuuki, yet they forget, that Yuuki didn’t grit her teeth and want to win at all costs either, she was mostly enjoying the fights. Kirito_true_hero Yeah well on the note of bleach ichigo is supposed to be this amazing raging (literally) ba kid who can beat the elite guard captains and what not but like whenever anything happens he’s always getting bent over and beaten wtf… Yeah I know this is the comments section for Sao 2 ep 21 but still that’s always bugged me :/ SAO lover why yuuki dont answer and leave in the game i want to now more <3 Jmoney Maybe yuuki had a sister that died in SAO , maybe that girl that died in that guild Kirito first joined. I like the fact we have to keep guessing. But yea I don’t think they are A.I’s markdigi That theory is wrong if she did die in SAO how come she was able to log out and before you ask its not a ghost! i think Yuuki is Asuna’s sis but cast off to somewhere else away from her family. markdigi Wow really the SAO wiki stats Yuuki isn’t dead and she isn’t Asuna’s sis either her sis was named Ran (dead) and Yuuki will be dead in spring and that’s why they are disbanding in spring wtf. Kess thanks for the spoilers you flabbermouth http://ReDDsHaD0w ReDDsHaD0w I question if you can read properly… Jmoney stated ” Maybe yuuki had a SISTER that died in SAO “, in no way did he insinuate that Yuuki was dead… Destroyer4503 i think you miss-read, he said what if Yuuki had a sister that was in SAO and died, he didn’t say that Yuuki died in SAO. Kashino Semi-spoiler: I KNEW that the name “Yuuki” had to mean something… Dusk Yes you’re right, in sao ending well the worlds end episode idk he cried when she said yuuki so it meant something so ye. You are so right Relentless_6055 I just can’t get into SAO anymore. In the first season they had something to fight for: their lives! Now the show lacks a sense of purpose, and with that, we lost the passion and strength we all loved to see from Kirito and Asuna when they fought and win the game. naphack It means nothing. She’s just named Yuuki, so the author can pull a joke at some point. There is possibly some symbolism going on as well, though. painterlyBlack asunas name is yuuki 🙂 and i think that it means snow in japanese SAO FAN So yuuki is not zekken?some ppl told me thats zekken!? black swordsman why didn’t we get to see kirito go mad and kill?! i was so excited at first, they even brought back the old music! but then he jsut blocks 2 shots, and gives a peace sign?!?!?! i wanna see kirito be a badass damnet! Kirito_true_hero Yeah no kidding I have to say this season doesn’t measure up to the original SAO 🙁 Rynati well it took him til season 2 to gain some actual reputation in vrmmos so it’s not all bad 😛 Shiritori Well, the fact that he is comfortable PKing after what happened in Aincrad is a huge statement by itself. naphack Why didn’t they show him getting his ass kicked? 🙁 I mean, the guy threw himself in front of the bus to buy time and all he gets from the animators is a lame pose at the very end. The light novel at the very least made a point of how he went down fighting… RustyNail69er Ya but this episode wasn’t supposed to be about kirito it was about asuna and yuuki and the other players i forget there names but anyways… ya asuna and yuuki FrostyShadowDragon This anime was supposed to be about Kiritos and Asunas ‘relation ship’ and the action they go it’s more based around Kirito when he was the 2nd best player in SAO but now it hardly ever shows him,it was exciting at the end of the last episode cuz we were like ” woah he’s gonna kill all of the bitches” but we get a crappy 2 minute scene where it doesn’t even show him kill one guy just some magical projectiles (but that was cool) so I’m pissed with this series…! I want him to be badass again for people to be like “WOAH awesome dude over here!” To be the cool, chilled dude we knew and loved in SAO!! Well that’s what I want… o-o I think she is Zekken… http://sao-episodes.tv/sword-art-online-2-episode-21/ SAObadAdd “yuuki zekken,” Japanese people call the other person by their second name unless told to do so otherwise =) People called her zekken but she tells asuna to call her b her first name yuuki Evil There was a cliffhanger this time, but this one didn’t leave a bitter taste like last episode. Zacharia What do you mean by “bitter taste?” I thought that the last one was epic. It was a cliffhanger after some plot and action, with a small but intense amount of Kirito being a badass. A bitter tasting cliffhanger would be more like the ones that happened in GGO where they were always after plot build-up, and flash back with action being few and far between. As for this episode, I found that the cliffhanger here left me more with a “WTF” feeling than a “ur ma gurd, why you leave me hanging like this.” Kind of like when a random person walks up to you and pokes your nose with a “boop” and walks calmly away. http://lol epiccyndaquil335 next week new episode TheNinjaGravity I have a feeling someone in their group is dyin an that’s why they’re disbanding the group HeavenCake Me too Otter It’s yuuki naphack Zekken is merely a title. Like “Black Swordsman” or “Berserk Healer”. I don’t know whether the “Zekken” title or the asswuppin’ came first. Either, she just referred to herself as “Absolute Sword” to lure in more challengers or people came to call her “Absolute Sword” after she utterly destroyed every challenger. Either way, her account name “Yuuki” didn’t really stick with the people and she came to be known as “Absolute Sword”. Regardless of who came up with that title, that’s, how people referred to her. painterlyBlack yup she is zekken 🙂 asuna first thought that zekken is male but then she found out that she’s a girl and was very surprised ^^ DrDubstep Her real in game in Yuuki, but people were calling her Zekken. http://RustyNail69er Eathan Yes thats zekken it explains everything in a few episodes back. But zekken isnt a name its a meaning and thats what they called yuuki Jon Zekken is the title Yuuki earned for winning all of those duels while looking for another party member. Its like people are calling Asuna the “Berserk Healer”. It just means “Absolute Sword”. Cake … The ending is killing me… zman what the hell, you cant leave it at that, you made me rage a bit there.just……what the hell zman i just want to watch more now dam it BallsDeep69 COFFEE SODA COFFEE PASTA COFFE SODA GIVE ME COFFEE! I shall never remember SAO music differently painterlyBlack You are an evil person xD [insertnamehere] huh, I listened through both the outro and intro of the episode. where is the coffee part? David SPOILERS: Yukki had a sister, both of them are sick. Her sister died of sickness, but Yukki still plays. She is still sick. kingofoak son of a….. dat freaking ending! wtf! wat SIS WayTooThoughtful I dont know why i’m thinking yuuki is Kayaba Akihiko. Rynati ….i figured everything out like 2 episodes ago….it’s not hard to figure out if you pay attention… http://sao-episodes.tv/sword-art-online-2-episode-21/ Scat well tell me what happed i still have no idea Happydacat so whats going on http://sao-episodes.tv/sword-art-online-2-episode-21/ SAObadAdd lol, it’s not hard to figure out if you watch the opening and ending credits either. I mean it practically tells you how this is gonna end. BEWARE OF DA UPCOMING FEELS!!! http://sao-episodes.tv/sword-art-online-2-episode-21/ SAObadAdd Oh and anyone else get the romance, yuri vibe from this series?? 0.o Sanii You mean that they are actualy real sisters? Kenneth Their not sisters if that’s what you think. http://Goldsonic Kenneth Oh yeah spoil it for me then. Pogba Yuuki’s sister actually died in real life because the sleeping knights is a group of ill people joining to go on adventures in the virtual world. I also know what happens next, it’s really sad so I won’t spoil it. naphack You’ve already spoiled everything, I’d say. TheCaptainOfAllCaptains Captain here. If you see in the intro for this episode. There are two twins growing up together, and then suddenly they become one into Tekken. Maybe that reasons that the other twin had died in an accident or some other incident. nick well i wish that it showed more of kirito killing those guys more. like if he turned into that giant monster earlier in the season and just destroying everyone in there. naphack Well, he threw himself in front of the bus and died. That’s all there is to it. His stats aren’t as broken anymore as they were during the Fairy Dance arc. They should have showed his hp bar, though… Could have built so much suspense if they paced the fight similar to the one in the light novel. mageulook i think maybe their npc n when they get disbanded they disappear 😮 Tyrannion guess she just rage quitted in the end….. gawd damnit naphack Wasn’t a rage quit. If you look carefully, she went all emotional at first and then made a calm decision to log out immediately. Spark so pls tell me what’s going on???what does Yuuki has???cancer?AIDS??What’s the story behind the sleeping knights??? :O :S x( naphack —Spoilers— Yuuki has AIDS, the other Sleeping Knights are in similar situations like cancer and whatnot. Most of them are only waiting for their inevitable deaths at this point. The Sleeping Knights met in an experimental virtual garden for hospitals Way back during the time of the SAO incident. Once the Seed Nexus was released, they went out to explore all those new virtual worlds. At some point, Yuuki’s sister died of AIDS and the Sleeping Knights decided to disband with the next death. As 3 were already dead and 2 were expected to not make it longer than spring, they decided to make a final big feat and leave a mark in the virtual world. Basically, before their deaths, they wanted to leave proof, they existed, which is, why they ultimately came to ALO to challenge the floor bosses. That’s the whole story. janime woa dude how do you know this? naphack It’s not like the anime is the original. It’s all based on a light novel(which is far better than this anime adaption). Epixel kirito told asuna the secret of yuuki, but I assume that asuna already forgot that. Nice Episode and also nice cliffhanger 😀 ZenonPrototype Yuuki’s facial expressions, though…even when she’s sad, she’s super cute. RustyNail69er OMG that episode was great. I wonder if yuuki is related to asuna in some close way. http://sao-episodes.tv/sword-art-online-2-episode-21/ RandomInsight I think her sister was a SAO victim. bladed poptart i think yuuki left cuz asuna reminded her of her (hypothetical) sister who possibly lost contact with or died anyone agree? Amanda WHYYY!!!!!!!!!! WHY A CLIFFHANGER EVERY FUCKING TIME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Rynati because it’s sao obviously….wouldn’t really be sao if every episode didn’t end with a cliffhanger 😛 ZxTrIcKsHoTxZ It’s probably because the most epic boss was Heath-CLIFF?! Huh?! Huh?! ….. Aww no support Liam Clap clap…woooow K Was anyone else half expecting kirito to still be standing there as the dungeon door opened naphack In the light novel, they at least showed that his life was at like 10% and dropping, when they made it through the door to the boss. Would have been so easy to include hp bars here and make the scene a bit more dramatic… viper yes i got a little dissapointed when he didnt ^^ Mike Yes, that was exactly what I was expecting Tong Lo They wanted to fight the boss.. So they fought Kirito, the boss dxgdd Yes yes and yes Katashi crying in anime is so adorable J-G89 I’m gonna go ahead and assume Yuuki Is terminally ill/dying. I can’t imagine any other reason why she’s acting the way she is. The Sentinel That or Yuuki’s a paraplegic and her only way to to escape reality is through ALO. J-G89 I suppose that’s true too, but that wouldn’t be a reason for her to act that way…. unless she recently got into an accident that put her that way causing significant emotional trauma. Rynati i can imagine u looked it up J-G89 I don’t like spoilers, so you imagined wrong KageRa too late now virgil does anyone else think that yuuki’s secret is that she lost her sister in sao. At least that’s my opinion. Or she is dying. Just a thought. Poketon 44444 Yuki has a birth defect called aids and she dying from it and the guild “The Sleeping Knights ” is a guild full of people who have a disease. Sorry if this is a spoiler. Raventhekid Are you retarded or something? Fucking put the word spolier before your comment IF ITS A FUCKING SPOILER YOU SHITHOLE sword_art_online_lover! OMG TELL ME MORE lol its just that i love watching sword art online its me fav LittleBigKid2000 SPOILER ALERT: You’re right. All of the people in the Sleeping Knights are J-G89 I’m going to pretend that you’re lying and disregard the message. sophia wit a real cliff hanger i wish these episodes would not end so early jeez this tension is killing me me want next episode waaaaaaa why why i wish i started these episodes after all of them were done sniff 🙁 http://Linushynynen RI NU SU WHY IS THERE ALWAYS A CLIFHANGER naphack If there wasn’t, you’d complain about how nothing of interest happened. Cliffhangers are the easiest way to make important developments stick. J-G89 Plus they keep you coming back to watch and continue their series Katsuya Yukimura I bet a lot of people wanted to see Kirito’s fight with that boss-fighting guild more than the actual boss fight with the Sleeping Knights. I was watching this with a group (4) and everyone wished that could’ve happened. naphack You didn’t miss anything interesting. He was basically hacking at everything coming close to him until he ran out of hp and died. He doesn’t have his overpowered stats anymore and running in against a group of 30, backed up by healers just won’t work for long, which is, why he declared, he can’t hold longer than 3 minutes. The light novel made a better job at conveying this fact though. Thealliancegamer mm one thing u did forget is that Kirito has both stats from ggo and alo because he just transferd his skills to the game soo what kirito said about that bullet is his skills from ggo. soo he actually has alot of training from alot of different games LittleBigKid2000 We will (probably) get back to kirito and his 1337 2k1|_|_z before you know it, just be patient. Aksel No cuz season 4 is all about yuuki BladeMaster444 My guess is that yuuki sister was the one who died in season 1 episode 3 im prob wrong but that what it seems like to me horiphin Pls why you cliffhanger????? Also, does anyone else just have a voice in their head throughout the entire episode going asuna check the the time pllleeeaase don’t be late for dinner? Nope? Just me? Well it’s giving me anxiety issues Brayden YUS. me too man, for the love of god asuna. look at the clock KumaThaBear I was like oh god the whole time. flasher002 How many episodes will SAO II have???? Royldfun The guild member might be soldiers and will go off on a tour in the spring. They want to enjoy life as they can before risking it for real. They are the “knights” after all Elvenoob Here’s the answer to the name thing you lot are whining about. In English order, Asuna’s name is Asuna Yuuki, and Yuuki is Yuuki Konno. http://Smartalec46 Twelvnoob ok thank you that clears up a bunch Asuna_Rp Freaking cliffhangers! I so wanna role play as Asuna now. My muse is outrageous! Asuna Is Yuuki Asuna’s sister because Asuna’s last name is Yuuki. Thats a bit odd to me and they are making another episode right? Vader23000 Yeah, they’re making another episode releasing on Saturday. I found it strange, too, that her username was Yuuki. Oh, SAO.. sword_art_online_lover! Wow really? I never noticed that But i cant wait for next ep EliasDi MAYBE THEY ARE CLONES OF ASUNA!!! Dray Nice if it’s real! willthethrill Well there is tangible light now but it’s still being tested. I think it could be projected in a special room to make a virtual reality were your still in controll of your body HeavenCake Guys Tommorow is the new episode 😛 im waiting for it . i hope kirito is gonna fight and let his real strenght see so that girl from 11 combo lose 😛 kirito is much better then her … and i think he let him lose to her btw. Otter I’m assuming u don’t know her story. Otherwise u wouldn’t be so insensitive to her. Spoiler Alert: She dies Jeff it doesnt happen honestly the way the series ends is pretty sad naphack She’s better than Kirito in pretty much any regard. Kirito outright stated it in numerous parts(even more so throughout the light novel.) People always say, if Kirito was seriously trying to win, he’d defeat her, but as it stands, Yuuki also wasn’t giving it her all(at the least, if her fight against Asuna is any reference.) For most part of that fight, Yuuki easily parried every attack, most of which Asuna outright stated to be borderline impossible to block for Kirito(well, she stated it in the novel at least.) The thing is, she didn’t go all out in those fights, she was enjoying herself while examining the strength of her challengers. Her goal was never to defeat any and every challenger, her goal was to find someone suitable to lend her guild a hand(and possibly someone to inherit her 11 hit combo “Mother’s Rosario”) In a direct clash of wills, where both give it their all, Yuuki will probably come out on top, too. How long, exactly, has it been, since Kirito learned to clench his teeth and move on, no matter what? He was basically a lazy bum before being thrown into SAO. Now comes Yuuki, who has never had anything for granted. When everything grinds to a halt and willpower determines everything, what determines the outcome is how hard you’ve worked to get to where you are at and how much of that work would go to waste. What you are left with after a loss and whether you will be able to rebuild from scratch also factors in. In this regard, if both persons have good reason to not back down, Yuuki is leaps and bounds ahead of Kirito. The upcoming chapter will show just how much Yuuki had to go through to be where she’s now. Kirito can’t beat Yuuki, because she has better reactions, moves faster, and if everything grinds to a halt, she’s also more determined to literally keep fighting until her last breath. Now, I can’t think of a reason, either of them would go at the other with such determination, but if both of them have equal reason to go at it, Kirito will lose. http://sao-episodes.tv/sword-art-online-2-episode-21/ CrutchMonkey you are very right in this regard but do remember, as soon as yuuki saw that asuna was worthy she basically kicked it into high gear, and also remember that when asuna asked why she did not pick kirito yuuki stated that he indeed had enough skill to not only bring her hp down a good ways ” without duel wielding might i add ” but the only reason she did not pick him on the spot was before she could what i would presume would be finish him off with her 11 hit combo he “figured out her secret” but don’t get me wrong she is most likely better then kirito but imo kirito is not to be taken lightly by any means at all. http://qwertyuiop lumi oh never mind but if you go down to the first comment , it says “Yuki has a birth defect called aids and she is dying from it” if im wrong please check it and leave a comment! “you’re fugly” i thought yuuki was part of the game i guess im wrong.. i mean i am aren’t i she did logout? RANDOM1 this is what my instincts are telling me based on the info: 1 Yuuki is a boy 2 Yuuki is Asuna’ s brother they might not me true i was just saying… RANDOM1 be* jazzar23 Nope RsnblFaith Mine tell me they are all in a coma. anon like clannad KazutoKirigaya no i think she’s an NPC http://www.chelseafc.sportsblog.com HYBRIDSLEEPER Could never be an NPC Blaedryn Okay….what. the. freak. all of those seem to far out. and they are. cause ive finished the whole season 😀 and i have to say you by name, “random1” because that’s just………i don’t even know what to say about you. jordan this is my fav episode mainly because like 30-50 people get scared by kirito in the beginning (pfft didn’t even notice asuna….) http://Matt Matthew while I have not read the manga I must also add, the fact that she’s a girl does help a lot, stereotypically guys are stronger than girls in the real world. HOWEVER, dive into a world where everything is determined by training, skills and statistics… a girl will generally have the upper hand, as they are generally smaller and ALOT more flexible than guys (wither they trained in speed or not) as they have real world experience, it is also a fact that more girls can multitask better than guys, hence the ’11hit combo’. All in all, no matter how hard a guy tries… if REALLY women put their minds to it, they could probably own the virtual world overnight…. what a scary thought XD naphack We guys can multitask, too. We can simultaneously listen and forget. http://sao-episodes.tv/sword-art-online-2-episode-21/ CrutchMonkey lol its our unique skill sachi wait is that kirito????? James Collie It couldn’t be. Kirito was there when they hate the PVP battle. Taro Frozen Yogurt Is it just me or is Kirito’s smile at 0:51 a little creepy? sophia NEW EPISODE COMING oh yeah plus kirto won’t fight for real ever again only when a game is not a game anymore he has become mr.lazybum get up kirto go fight like you used to jeez Nekobear989 Kirito is so hot Zelda Agreed XD edimshuffling so this is what you do when link is out side questing. AnimeLover11 Ikr xD Donald Trump And at 6:10 that is why Asuna is called “Lightning-Flash Asuna” http://catherine catherine i think your crazy !!!!!!! sword_art_online_lover! Wow thats funny and i some how think that too i might be crazy as well! Lunchbox15 You know what makes me happy? The fact that a company is developing a virtual reality System like in sword art. http://dodo1166 terrell webb really!!!! Capable Priest Anyone noticed how quickly she logged out? Pr0 combat logging xD sophia yueee is solo cute awww the way she smiles the everything she does the voice actress is good 😀 sophia asuna your mum is soo mean let the girl make her own decisions for once let her marry kazuto kittykaya jeez poor asuna its hard being a rich girl naphack You have to admit, Asuna never gave her mom any reason to put faith into her. She always shies back from voicing her own opinion and never explains her plans for the future to any detail. In the eyes of her mother, she’s a lazy slacker, who invests way too much time in video games while she misses countless opportunities in real life. God damn. Now I gotta apologize to my mother for always making her worry 🙁 http://catherine catherine you mean kazuto kirigaya. asuna should take her mum into alfeim online then she knows how asuna feels. also if i was her i would kick her mum. remember some things you can only share by fighting back (of course you know that) said yukki http://qwertyuiop lumi AAAAAA I CANT SEE MY SCREEN IS TOO SMALL !!!!!!!!!!why is that? Usedpapertowel Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy? Caught in a landslide, No escape from reality naphack Open your eyes, Look up to the skies and see willthethrill All I know is that you can actually hold and feel the light I looked up some vids but was only able to find some txt documents about how it’s made dehlert *Spoiler* They are all terminally ill children in the sleeping knights. sachi i feel sorry about suine being a huge catterpllar SAOperson I cant wait until tomorrow. i want to see whats up with yuuki http://www. kirito7185 Just to let everyone be amazed and happy virtual reality just like this show is being made where just like this you cant control yourself in the real world. The virtual reality helmet will be done and for public in 6-9 years. Informer_Cyrus I’m not so sure that your information is as reputable as it seems. The way I see it, I doubt that the most primitive form of this would be ready within 10 years (ignoring the occulus rift etc.). There are experiments in that scientists have conducted in the past that would be ideal for this kind of “full dive” technology such as electroencephalography (EEG) which is basically measuring electrical impulses in your brain and detecting what muscles they are being directed to. Another is by using magnetoencephalography (MEG). This, like EEG, measure brain impulses, but this measures magnetic brainwaves being sent to and from the brain. Though these are advanced technologies, they are still fairly young. They have also tested a “taste sensor” which you can guess that, and that’s much further along than EEG or MEG. In conclusion, I think the most primitive form of “full dive” technology would be finished, but not released, between 2027 and 2034. WoooooooOOOOOOooooo Ye of realistic faith. Where talking the merging of reality and fantasy. We real can’t put such timeline constraints to our own possibilities. Have you even been watch SAO?? Hello Asuna cheating on Kirito? well i guess it’s only fair cause he’s had like 15 girlfriends since her soo…. R.S. It’s not even by choice. :/ nymira lol, a deserved lol Bludoo weed on floor 11 :3 Megatron Haven’t seen any further or read any of the manga, just my current theory: Yuuki is using her sister’s account, and her sister died in SAO, which is really why she wants on the wall so badly. This is also why she just showed up but is already skilled EXP wise, yet her sister didn’t have her innate talent and that’s why she didn’t get Dual Blades. Blaedryn -=SPOILER WARNING=- well.

And i myself doubt her sister played any VRMMOS. Though very little was said about her sister so. i could be wrong. anonymous SPOILER WARNING your theory is incorrect, but it makes sense and is a good one. if i remember right and the anime stays true to the novels, it turns out that they are in the medi-cuboid and all have terminal illnesses Eonben though i think it will be possible in the next 15 years, just looking at all the technological progress we made these last 10 years i think it won’t take that long to create, but also open for public, that wil tak longer just as computers were a thing only for rich and big companies in the beginning Jasmine Do you honestly think that they will release something where you do not have any control over your body whatsoever? Haha, no. Unfortunately even though we may have the technology to make such a thing in the near future, it will most likely not be approved by government. Keep dreaming though~! SuperSaiyanGOD Kirito i think there is a secret involving asuna and yuuki, i have a few speculations…. And the secret culd either be….. 1)Yuuki used to have a sister until her sis was put up for adoption, also the reason why Asuna seems so distant from the rest of her family is bcuz Asuna’s prolly secretly adopted or sumthin. and another point that helps my speculation is that notice Asuna’s last name… Asuna Yuuki. 2)Someone or everyone in the sleeping knights guild culd be dying with cancer or a neurologically Terminal Disease or sumthin caused by that fucker that was named King Oberon in ALO bcuz they were prolly SAO players and also prolly was one of the 300 that King Oberon intercepted from logging out 3)or finally, Yuuki prolly had a sister with the same name as Asuna but was prolly one of the unfortunate 4k that died in SAO, tell me wut u think and which one of these 3 speculations u think is more likely to be true “you’re fugly” i like the 1st one i dont completely understand what you said about it but it sounds alot like 1 of my theories that yuuki has secretly got a sister although yuuki didn’t know she was calling asuna her sister she started crying after which makes me think that she has at least a sister which she loved.. I probably lost you there “you’re fugly” i like the 1st one i dont completely understand what you said about it but it sounds alot like 1 of my theories that yuuki has secretly got a sister although yuuki didn’t know she was calling asuna her sister she started crying after which makes me think that she has at least a sister which she loved.. I probably lost you there dangit Blaedryn -=SPOILER ALERT=- ok. 1. wrong. yeah asunas last name is Yuuki. but Yuuki’s first name is Yuuki. its not her last name….um. ok. lost myself there. 2. everyone but Yuuki is fine in the genre of, erm, stuff. Yuukis defense system failed. so shes stuck in containment forever :D. 3. I have no proof this is wrong, though personally i doubt it. Ok im done proving people wrong for today. sophia NEW EPISODE COMING OUT YODAY YIPPEEE sauna fight back your mom never saw kazuto kirigayas nice kind side and determined side and saunas mom you should respect the one who saved sauna from diying jeez Constantine 7 HOURS remaing for new episode!HA i can’t wait!its nice now that teh series are focused(FINALLY) to asuna-san.for so much time,it focused on kirito but now it’s asuna’s turn!I think the new character yuuki wont leave.i have a feeling that they will meet each other in real life(out of the game)! 😀 sophia 1 more hour util the new episode is released whooohooo yeah i hope in this episode there is action not talking in pst of the parts sauna just remind you mom who saved you from dying of shame and despair in SAO and ALO jeez then she might think he is good enough and where did lighting flash of the knights of the blood oath jeez jeez jeez jeez JEEEEEEEEZZZZZZ!!!!!! sophia where did she fucking go JEEZ ASUNA KIRTO GET UP AND LOOK AT THE WORLD AROUND YOU ITS FULL OF RETARDS ALL YA HAVE TO DO IS FIGHT THEM JEEEEEEEZZZZZZ!!! Mariusu Satou Hey everyone! 🙂 Is there any possible for a Virtual Reality game like Sao in the feuture? Anyone know anything about that? 🙂 Would be nice if we could use Oculus Rift in that way. Thats my wish 😀 haha! Yuuki I was just thinking that. You could combine that with better technology though. SInon Finallly Kirito have used excalibur … I was thinking he will never use it … Jimmeh Sadly we didnt get to see him use it tho http://127898070064 Legendary Samurai Yeah i didnt saw what he did to that excalibur though PokePika why did kirito try to throw excalibur when he got it Garrett G it was too heavy, he couldnt jump onto tonkii with it theguywise Actuallly he used the Excalibur in ALO when Asuna was trapped in the game. still…. But he used hacks/cheat to get that thing to defeat the final guy. so this is the second time he use Excalibur in battle in ALO. Glen Hawke actually Kirito didnt even use it he threw it at his opponent to give him a weapon duckies Wrong. Kirito uses hethclif’s master privilages to spawn excaliber only to then give it to asuna’s arranged to be married ‘boyfriend’. Which even having the games best sword looses against kirito Crazy I saw that an american research is progressing this way but it will not be released before 2030 or maybe more… But get hype! one day your dreams will come truth! Douilles look at that. http://www.indiedb.com/games/sword-art-online. It’s not big but it can become really good. Milo Kodu The closest thing we have would be to use the Oculus and the Emotiv Epoc/Insight. Ethan Gogue Watch this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jLp3W1gbhRk Trust me you’ll love it Tenbris_Preatoriae Hehe that’s the kind of thing I want to do in the future! however the rift isn’t about that, it is more a screen in front of your face that makes it look like you are seeing it. It is immersive don’t get me wrong but no where near as much as the nerve gear would be. Toshiro Hitsugaya In order for us to be able to have something like this they would have to map all the neurons and synapses in our brains and figure out how to intercept all the signals at the brain stem, then use those to completely immerse us in a virtual world. They are currently working on reverse engineering our brains in the hopes of doing just that as well as making a more human-like AI, but sadly it is a good ways off. It may still be in our lifetime, but i would think by the time it happens we shall be old and decrepit. http://www. kirito7185 Oh yeah your in the virtual word as a clone and yeah it’s awesome it’s just amazing that virtual reality will be a thing tintin this kind of anime will fuck real life arghhhhh asdfadsf asdfd Seriously what is with all this feels bullsh.t so fucking boring look at me umma girl, umma behaiving wingy all the time, give me your attention blaa blaa blaaaaa Error404 True dat. word yui ur just an ass you don’t get it so fuck off http://127898070064 Legendary Samurai If you dont want why dont you watch other anime Omega SAO’s arc was about life-or-death fighting – that will never be the focus or point again, because the game SAO is gone. But even with the fighting, the anime was ‘always’ about the feels, rather than the fights themselves If you think that’s boring, you never had a chance with this series in the first place Blaedryn I believe there bringing back that amazing feel to the show in season 3.
