Sword Art Online episode 3 went by so fast.  When the episode ended I thought it had another 10 minutes left.  Episode 3 was very emotional, it made my eyes a little sweaty but no I didn’t cry.  Bring it Sword Art Online I dare you to find a way to make me cry; still no anime has ever made me do that.  The episode starts with another time skip, 4 months after the events of episode 2.  There is no sign of Asuna or any of the other guys who helped clear the first floor.  Kirito gets invited to join the Moonlit Black Cats, a guild of fairly low levels.  They are nothing special but they are group of nice guys and a gal.  I was glad at first that Kirito decided to make some friends; he really shouldn’t be going at this alone.  It too bad what happened to everyone.  (more…)

Great second episode of Sword Art Online, this show could really turn into something.  Episode 2 as you probably know takes place a month after the events of episode 1.  20% of all the players in the game are dead, dead in Sword Art Online and dead in real life.  I bet most of the in-game characters are being super careful and barely training at all.  With my life on the line I would probably stay at the nice inn Asuna was talking about.  Maybe I would make a few friends and just spend our lives in level one, it is better than dying prematurely in my opinion.

Because of Sword Art Online I will never play a video game where I am transported into a game, or a VRMMORPG as they call it.  That freaks me out; I don’t want to die in a video game, which is just ridiculous.  Okay, it is time for the synopsis of the series!

The only way to escape is to ‘clear’ the game. Death in game means actual death.  The ten thousand who have logged onto the as of yet mysterious game ‘Sword Art Online’ using their Nerve Gear have been forced into this perilous death game and are trapped inside.  Protagonist Kirito, one of the many gamers, has greeted this ‘truth’.  He plays as a solo player in the giant castle that is the stage for this game ‘Aincrad’.  To meet the conditions of clearing the game and leaving this twisted virtual world, he must get through all 100 floors. Will Kirito have what it takes to clear the game, or will he die trying? (MyAnimeList) (more…)
