WARNING: BOLD AND HIGHLIGHTED TEXT ARE SPOILERS SO MOUSE OVER AT YOUR OWN DISCRETION. I HAVE WARNED YOU
The latest Sword Art Online episode finally was subbed and released for our viewing pleasures. This episode starts back on pace with the main story line but for some reason really cuts some corners. One thing that I am starting to notice is that the episodes seem to go by very fast which I feel is a good and bad thing at the same time. While this usually means that you enjoy the series so much that things just pass by faster, in this case I think they are just skipping too much content. The whole event with the fisherman was cut down to almost no more than ten minutes. Also, the final fifteen minutes has us already at the lead up to the final battle of SAO (the game not the story). While it has been thirteen episodes, I feel like the show is really in a mad dash to finish for whatever reason. I really do hope that they plan on continuing onto what happens outside the game of SAO and into ALO (the game that Kirito jumps into after the events of SAO). This episode did do something that I felt the others were lacking which was include a lot of fight scenes. The scene with the floor boss looks like its going to showcase a lot of very fluid and amazing visuals. The anime just keeps pushing and pushing on all fronts with the amazing visuals. All I can say is that the next episode(s) should be very interesting to see especially to the viewers who have not read the light novel series.
