Sword Art Online Episode 4


Well, I suppose not everyone can get a name as intimidating as "Terror of Death." Black Swordsman sounds pretty bland in comparison. Then again, if Kirito was like Haseo, then we'd probably have some problems because Haseo's not the most fun character in the world. At least Kirito is still a nice guy (despite all the crap that happens to him...see episode 3). But yeah...we see more of Kirito's journeys as a legendary solo player before he ends up getting roped by Asuna (you know it's gonna happen).

So is Silica supposed to be a recurring character in this show after all of this introductory stuff is done? Because I think she was in character art before the show was released...but she's shown at about the same time as Sachi in the opening. Healing dragon is always nice to have, after all. Also, I'm surprised that Sword Art Online actually has a system that reveals player killers and such.

What surprised me even more was that there are people who believe that you don't truly die in the real world if you die in the game. I suppose you could think of it similarly to the idea of the afterlife. Someone has implanted this idea that dying in the game will mean true death, but there is no real way to prove it unless you actually die. Of course in this situation, the answer to the question "why not kill yourself if you think that it won't kill you for real?" is answered with a simple "I find the game fun and I want to play as long as possible before dying and never getting to come back."

Anyway, hopefully next week, the actual story starts. But then again, not all characters in the opening have been shown yet, so it's possible there's still more background story to be shown.

    My only question is why was Mr. Level 78 was walking around with a micro-skirt that would fit a 10 year old girl? Kirito, you are truly a Master Beater.

    Anyway, I thought Silica was going to die throughout the episode. I guess that's what they wanted the viewer to think after killing off the last loli.

    I believe they won't really die in real life, but without proof it's unfair for players to kill others so easily.

    Killing yourself is the last choice you want to make based on the same logic, but the suicide from episode 3 was after he had given up on life so it's kind of acceptable.

    hmm pkk and super high level kind of like haseo only different one does not kill the other while the other one does..

    the difference in level is clearly pure cheating more so with the auto regeneration and kirito cloth isn't using the coat of midnight which is pretty much the best armor though only in looks the stat must be really low considering you get it from floor 1...

    and the battle sequence isn't really what i hoped to see so far but hey at least the story is not so bad...

    from what i know about the light novel the actual story will begin after the side story called the warmth of heart which will be after the murder mystery side story so the main story will begin around episode 8
