The action during that motorcycle scene had such fluid animation! The first half of this episode redeemed this new entry into the series than the last few episodes that we’ve had.  However, they could have skipped everything in the second half but Kirito revealing to Sinon he might know Laughing Coffin from SAO.

I’m at the verge of dropping this show, due to it’s unnecessary slow pacing and little to no development of the characters and the world of GGO.  What’s going on with everyone in the login area that Kirito met?  Also I will be disappointed with this series if it tries to pull in one more girl to fawn over Kirito– there are tons of harem elements to this show that are not even apart of the main story and only fill up time.  Especially those scenes with the girls logging into ALO to chat.  This could be a lot more interesting if the relationships in this series followed what Akari and Toru had in Hitsugi no Chaika.  Now that’s a series that knows how to handle the “not related by blood” anime trope! Have to say I’m pretty excited to see what the creators have in store for that second half this October.

OVERALL IMPRESSION: 7/10
