With all these ass shots they’re giving us, they might as well call this show Nice Butts Online.
Maybe it’s because I didn’t really like this side story in the LN, but this anime adaptation of SAO is starting to feel like ye generic filler-shounen five episodes in. Hopefully the pacing will pick up a little once the adaptation steps out of this side story fest and into the main storyline.

    Just refreshed and saw the post. Finally it’s out!!
    But from looking at you’ve said there… hmm, it may not have been worth the wait, but I’ll soon know for sure if that’s true.

    Nice ass shots compilation lol

  4. K4tana on August 5, 2012 at 2:56 am said:

    I kind of liked the side story though. Gives more character depth?

  5. Shawn263241 on August 5, 2012 at 2:56 am said:

    Haha, never noticed that. Shot #2 was pretty niiiiiice.
    But I’m disappointed UTW, you were way slower than Commie this time. 😮
    Thanks for your release though, I was waiting for it.

    i wish they actually stick closer to the novel. they never showed Heathcliff at all!

  7. Thanks guys!

  8. hudang on August 5, 2012 at 3:00 am said:

    yea. thanks..
    been refreshing countless times.. finally its out..
    IMO, i like this this side story fest, rather than they pick up just main story, then throw the side story later on (with OVA or what).. LOL.
    and we got to main story next 2 ep right.. yeah..

  9. KakuganeXIII on August 5, 2012 at 3:00 am said:

    @matrixEXO They aren’t to the part where Heathcliff is consulted, so it is too soon to say he never shows up. Thanks for the hard work UTW. You guys are my favorite sub group. =)

  10. JokersGist on August 5, 2012 at 3:02 am said:

    Thank you for the new episode, keep up the good work. Hmm, did you guys encode this differently, it doesn’t take as much memory as the others, which is fine, just wondering is all.

  11. Thanks guys! Well, we still have Liz side story before the main story starts again. Oh, and Yui somewhere in the middle… So still a while to go. At least they did not compress it into 1 episode :S

    I vote that we re-name it Dat Ass Online

    @stgmefly Damnit you made me fall out of my chair laughing at that comment.

  14. Geese1 on August 5, 2012 at 3:11 am said:

    Thanks for the subs!

  15. edlar on August 5, 2012 at 3:13 am said:

    The adaptation is very unimaginative and rather simplistic.
    A-1 was probably not the studio for the job.

  16. infinityfreedom on August 5, 2012 at 3:14 am said:

    they still need to introduce Lizbet and Yui which is what u say is right. two more episodes. but judging from the number of episodes and if after these two charac is introduced, they will be going to the main storyline, I’m guessing that this season will also include ALO since they also had Suguha slight appearance in the first ep?

  17. Asdfjuma on August 5, 2012 at 3:18 am said:

    Wait this isn’t the main story yet? I thought this was just going 7 episodes long with them clearing the 100th floor 2 weeks from now.

  18. sd,avi version where?

  19. 100th floor.

  20. Itsumo on August 5, 2012 at 3:23 am said:

    Omg, Asuna baby<3
    u guys should add Asuna to the best girl poll, i want to take my vote for snow black back!

    Sorry to hear it’s not to your liking… please know I’M at least enjoying it!
    Thanks so much for the episode and please have a good night!

  23. MeiKo on August 5, 2012 at 3:32 am said:

    @Asdfjuma The trailers all indicated that this was going to go on for 2 Seasons. Sides, the light novel took 2 volumes to explain everything. If they shoved it down to even 13 episodes…

  24. @Shawn263421
    Who is/are commie? I heard they are like that Hadena group, but without Karaoke and better English :>

  25. matrixEXO on August 5, 2012 at 3:36 am said:

    @KakuganeXIII They did. In the alleyway, where they were discussing the possibilities of murder inside the town. That scene was actually suppose to be in a restaurant with Heathcliff.
    From Baka-Tsuki:
    [spoiler]….Heathcliff drank another gulp of water, and then answers, un,
    “Then, let me hear your hypothesis, Kirito-kun. What’s your view about this «Inside area murder» method?”
    On hearing the topic being directed at me, I put down the hand supporting my face and immediately raised three fingers.
    “Un…I guess there are about 3 possible methods. First, an actual inner area duel. Second, combining a known method with a system loophole, and third…an unknown skill or equipment that can cause the Anti-Criminal Code to lose its effect.”
    “You can forget about the third possibility.”
    Heathcliff immediately concluded, and these words caused me to stare at his face. Asuna was like me, blinking a few times before asking,
    “…Leader, how can you be so certain?”
    “Think about it. If you’re the developer of this game, would you design such a skill or weapon?”
    “Un…probably not.”
    I answered.
    “Why is that?”
    I looked back at the yellowish-bronze eyes that had a magnetic effect, and continued,
    “That’s because…it’s too imbalanced. I really don’t want to admit it, but the rules of SAO are rather fair. Of course, your «Unique Skill» can’t be considered as such.”
    I curled my lips up as he added that last sentence, and Heathcliff silently smiled back at me in the same manner.
    Deep inside, I was shocked, but my expression didn’t change at all. Even if he’s the leader of the KoB guild, he can’t possibly know that I recently got «that» in my skill window.
    Asuna looked back and forth at Heathcliff and me while we exchanged weird smiles with each other, sighed and shook her head before interrupting,
    “Either way, discussing this third possibility is a waste of time because we can’t confirm it. Then…let’s examine the first assumption, the possibility of a proper duel.”
    “Alright. But…the shop here really is really slow in serving food.”
    I shrugged at Heathcliff, who was looking deep into the counter. [/spoiler]

  26. matrixEXO on August 5, 2012 at 3:36 am said:

    oh fk, forgot to add spoiler tag, can someone remove my post above or edit it?

  27. Quebecer on August 5, 2012 at 3:45 am said:

    Actually, I find that the side story have a very useful. They show us different side of Kirito’s personality and a part of his psychological evolution.

  28. lighto13 on August 5, 2012 at 4:36 am said:

    hmm i wish they had adapted the light novels the way that they came out not like put everything in the right chronological order…shouldve started with the main storyline of vol.1

  29. Shawn263241 on August 5, 2012 at 4:44 am said:

    @ar: That’s about right. They’re lazy bastards and still aren’t quite “fansubbers” (they edit rips, kinda like how UTW and GG do), but they’re waaaaay better than Hadena, SubDESU, and HorribleSubs. Their fonts are usually pretty good (pretty much the only reason I prefer them over UTW for Accel World), but they have a bad habit of over localizing everything, or putting in their own “personality” (such making common phrases into curse words). I personally like the no karaoke because it’s less distracting, and I no longer care what words in Japanese mean what in English / already know enough. Shouldn’t take long for you to get over it.

  30. Anonymous3.141592654 on August 5, 2012 at 5:11 am said:

    Nice Butt Online as a birthday present, cool!

  31. As for Episode 5, this series adaptation is only meant for anime-goers and it only will be enjoy as it is. Those who already read the LN, they’ll cringing and loathing most of the alterations, cut-offs and add-ins the producers had been introduced in the series. You guys either drop it and stick with the original material, continue watching it and bitching everything that are not right in the anime compare to the LN or watch it for the sake of curiousity and accept the flaws. This because we (LN readers) already know the story will be unfold and how it’s gonna end.
    Me? I’m watching it for the sake curiousity and it’s borderline between waiting how they gonna do with certain arc(s)/event(s) and watching a train wreck in slow motion. I’m waiting on how they gonna handle [spoiler]Kirito’s crash into hello, the shut up kiss moment, the honeymoon arc and tragic (less tragic if they combine ALO) finale.[/spoiler] Even, I did have high hopes on that but at least it fun to watch. :3

  32. *Even I didn’t have any high hopes on that that but at least it would be fun to watch. :3
    Asuna…. HNNNNNNGGGG!

  33. archdevil917 on August 5, 2012 at 5:51 am said:

    You got it wrong dude… SAO stands for SHOT ASS ONLINE 😛 XD

  34. XOXOXO on August 5, 2012 at 5:59 am said:

    Sadly, we will not see dat 2nd ass shot anymore. Btw, Asuna wake up pose is really funny.
    Although there will be another poll about best girl. I’ll stick into Irisviel, ‘cos she is my dream woman for my wife.

  35. I think they still have time for Heathcliff – it’s his advice that gives Kirito the hint.

  36. man00ver on August 5, 2012 at 6:12 am said:

    I’m quite enjoying this anime; thanks for bringing it!
    I haven’t yet mustered the patience to wade through a translated LN, and judging from comments, that may be a bonus when it comes to this show. I can appreciate it without preconceptions, and the LN will still be there for me when it’s over. I just might read it!
    Again, my appreciation for GotWoot’s and your marvellous work on this.

  37. This was an alright episode. I enjoyed it for the most part.
    As for the adaption…
    [spoiler]They left two (but not necessarily important) event in this adaption.
    The first one was that a little after Kirito was investigating the case. After he had transported to a city, Schmidt and some other DDA members had surrounded him and almost interrogated him if he was investigating the Inside Area Incident. Afterwards, he forcefully took the spear from Kirito.
    The second was at the very end, when Yoruko fell and disappeared, there was a loud bell that had resounded as soon as she disappeared. Nevertheless, good episode.[/spoiler]

  38. Solitud on August 5, 2012 at 6:47 am said:

    I’m guessing they might not show heathcliff or, if they do, they almost have to edit his conversation down to nothing.
    [spoiler]Or else he self-spoils or at least potentially spoils his own character -waaaaaaay- before he should. Since…well, it was written to be kind of amusing due to later spoilers, what with kirito’s general opinion of him, etc.
    Alternatively, they do show him, they edit little out and we end up with one of those “wow, you people who read must be stupid, I saw that coming from a mile away” moments because the anime/movie/whatever made everything easier to guess at due to production choices xD[/spoiler]

  39. Riyumii on August 5, 2012 at 7:04 am said:

    Where exactly is this episode in the light novel?

  40. Is it just me or are the end cards not being included? Because this ep’s <a href="http://i.imgur.com/fb2lB.jpg&quot; title="end card" was pretty d'aww.

  41. Ashitaka on August 5, 2012 at 7:14 am said:

    You want the pacing to pick UP? It’s been five episodes and they’re already in the 50s in terms of floors. If anything it needs to slow down IMO…

  42. Delicious Fag Chest on August 5, 2012 at 7:16 am said:

    I think going through the sidestories chronologically actually works for this adaptation. Better than going through the novels page by page jumping back and forth through events.

  43. kotelo on August 5, 2012 at 7:28 am said:

    Look at them ass shots! Shit Ass Offline.
    Stop the forced drama and start moving the story already.

  44. Nice “Ass”una shots. I’ll see myself out

  45. Grumpy Old Fart on August 5, 2012 at 8:43 am said:

    Re: Picture
    Oh my god, that muscle wasting! That’s why you should only play games for a few hours a day and be sure to get plenty of exercise!

  46. @ar comparison with Hadena was low… very very low… You should apologize to Commie 🙂

  47. Kurisukun on August 5, 2012 at 8:47 am said:

    It was kinda evident that they would cut out Heathcliff here. It doesn’t fit at all when you put it in chronological order.
    As for the rest, I more or less guessed the parts they’d cut out right. It’s not perfect, but there isn’t much to complain about. All that was left out had neither importance to the SS itself nor to the MS.
    And btw, every episode where I get to see Asuna is already pure epic. As long Asuna’s there, the episode can’t be bad, that’s an axiom ;p

  48. zilentworld on August 5, 2012 at 8:56 am said:

    I’m still downloading the ep so i haven’t seen the last scene, but the bell did not rang when she fell, it rang when
    Kirito was chasing the Caynz on the rooftop, and when he was just about to say “Teleport [x town]” the bell rang which made kirito lost track of him cause he didn’t hear what town he teleported

  49. Jamie on August 5, 2012 at 9:14 am said:

    I kinda wish they’d added the duel at the start, I can’t think of any reason why they’d miss it out, it’s not like Kirito actually shows anything.

  50. One detail that I just can’t forgive. They called something that is obviously a sword, a spear. In the novels, its described as a short, black one-handed spear, and not a very strong looking one in fact. It did not have hooks to hold it into place, and it was certainly not red, or have an outrageously long blade.
    [spoiler]However, the Inner Area Incident is a very bad piece of canon, its hard to fit it into the chronological order, as most of the content in it is actually spoiling the main story, such as Heathcliff knowing a suspicious amount of the code structure of SAO, and the reference to Unique Skills and Dual-Blades (in the novel it’s simply says “that skill appeared in my skill list”, shortly after they talk about Heathcliff blocking the boss with his unique skill). As most of the side-stories were written after the fact, I guess this can’t be helped.
    Also they definitely simplified Schmitt waaaay too much
    In the novels, Schmitt from the beginning seemed very edgy all the time and guilty of something, in the anime they just skip over it
    If the anime wants to make more dramatic, I think they should hide Kirito using the skill in Warmth of the Heart, and reveal it where it should be in the main story.[/spoiler]
    Spoilers in spoiler tags please.

  51. At least its 2 eps, wasn’t too bad so far.
    Apart from what other mentioned, I was looking forward seeing Asuna in that outfit which supposedly was so expensive. The parts where she goes totally tsun tsun over Kirito is missing as well.

  52. @zilentworld Ah, you’re right. Mistake on my part. Thanks for catching it.

  53. @Rai
    take a look at this mmorpg’s spears http://vindictusdb.com/item?i=Braid+Tassel+Twin+Spears#tabs-screens
    Blame the Koreans for making spears a sword lookalike weapon.

  54. Christ, a volume 8 story? Let me catch up first before you jump that far ahead, SAO anime. ‘-‘
    Anyway, thanks for the release guys. As great as ever.

  55. Jay-kun on August 5, 2012 at 10:39 am said:

    Thanks! 😀

  56. Kurisukun on August 5, 2012 at 11:16 am said:

    Seriously who cares about whether it’s a spear or a sword? Fussing about THAT is actually ridiculous. And who the fuck cares about Schmidt. Just some random guy who’s got no importance what’s so ever. I’m glad they cut the part on him short.
    The only thing I can possibly complain about is that they cut out asuna wearing that super expensive just for kirito and her tsun-tsun behaviour ;p
    But I’m willing to forget that as long as [spoiler] they don’t cut the part when Kirito makes that certain epic comment while observing the restaurant grimlock goes to and asuna falls backward along with the chair shes sitting on lol [/spoiler]

  57. [spoiler]This isn’t just a vol 8 story. It’s a mix between part of Material Editions chapter 1: The Clearers/The Progressors and Vol 8 chapter 1. I seriously wasn’t expecting them to go to vol 8 much less mix it with ME1 but it seems they pulled it off quite well.
    Plus they’ve finally started an arc. I don’t care if it’s one or two or even three episodes. It’s an Arc.
    Well I’m guessing SAO Vol 2 c2: Warmth of the Heart is after this arc, then part of the SAO v1 with the fight with Cradil, the boss, the battle with Heathcliff, the marriage and then SAO v2 c3: Morning Dew Girl and then finally the battle with the 75th floor boss and the revealing of Heathcliff’s disguise. Just a few eps to go before no more timeleaps until the end of vol 1.
    I hope to god they don’t scrap “Dual Blades”. The opening never showed him using it.[/spoiler]

  58. Ah just to let you know you won’t find ME1 on Baka-Tsuki. Try searching for Material Editions on Batoto.

  59. Dark_Pride on August 5, 2012 at 11:58 am said:

    Thank you for the SD release

  60. Kurisukun on August 5, 2012 at 11:59 am said:

    The way they pace the anime, I can’t see Aincrad Arc lasting for longer than EP14-15. I guess it’s safe to assume that we’ll the the whole ALO arc as well, it easily fits within 8-10 EP’s.

  61. anonymous on August 5, 2012 at 12:06 pm said:

    @hello : i think you said a bit too much there for those which didnt read novels 😛
    well i knew this would just cover sao arc, well but its fine. maybe alo can be made into season 2, but if they include ggo arc too it would take too much to cover the question with alicization arc, so i guess we already be lucky if alo arc is put too.

  62. Kurisukun on August 5, 2012 at 12:43 pm said:

    my guess is that S1 will cover Aincrad/FD arc.
    S2 will cover Phantom Bullet+MR + some bonus stuff/fanservice etc to fill up 24ep’s
    S3 should only be covering the whole of alicization arc(alicization’s gonna round up to 7 volumes).
    The way kawahara-sensei expressed it he indirectly said that alicization’s likely to be the last arc overall and since it doesnt make sense to split up alicization into different seasons theres basically no other choice left for the animation team.
    [spoiler] which makes very much sense considering that they’re about to graduate from high school and plan on going to a college in america (krito&asuna that is). Also, kawahara-sensei published a short SS taking place after alicization arc which also hints towards that development.[/spoiler]

  63. I swear people are spoiler-tagging the things that aren’t spoilers just so that they can leave actual spoilers in a complely visible way.

  64. hello on August 5, 2012 at 2:36 pm said:

    Hey hey. You didn’t need to hide everything in my first post. The first two paragraphs are just what everyone knows. You should only have hidden the last two paragraphs.

  65. @Kurisukun
    I hope they don’t screw that too. :3

  66. So… I guess ill come back by episode 12 when they actually start VOL 1 adaptation. I’m fed up with side stories.

  67. boingman on August 5, 2012 at 4:46 pm said:

    Isn’t your comment about that Heathcliff guy a spoiler? Coz for me as an anime spoiler it raises a certain suspicion. I’ll keep your nick in mind in case that is true, because then that means that you spoiled us anime viewers big time.

  68. boingman on August 5, 2012 at 4:48 pm said:

    Oh, and I as well would love to see those end cards, but my guess is that they simply aren’t part of the raws that UTWoots are using.

  69. DarkHvN on August 5, 2012 at 5:45 pm said:

    In the LN it was described as a short black spear but if you go back into the Early and Late Volume, there is a picture that clearly shows that it’s the exact same weapon as the one in the anime.

  70. Yeah, the whole side story thing doesn’t really translate well into anime form regardless of the order they’re put in. Oh well.

  71. Adoptation is ruined, much worser then Accel World.
    Hope kyoani will do a remake.

  72. theworld58 on August 5, 2012 at 6:57 pm said:

    I thought this would be a 3 episode arc. Can’t believe they cut so much.

  73. [spoiler]Novelfags spoiling the anime, comments edition[/spoiler]
    Sword/spear is pretty much identical to illustration in vol8 for this ‘arc’.
    It’s even in color with an explanation of the Anti-Criminal Code Effective Area. People just have aimless complaints.

  74. Edikyutter on August 5, 2012 at 10:34 pm said:

    Thank you!!

  75. Fuck off jack, and don’t you come back no more, no more, no more, no more…

  76. Nickienator on August 6, 2012 at 12:14 am said:

    That’s one big ass ring.

  77. Hey, I’m curious about one of your translations. The scene with Agil, Kirito and Asuna you put “thistle” for 茨 (いばら) but how come? Did you just use it to differ from the original “thorn”? I can’t find any source for いばら being translated as thistle.

  78. Oi, oi, oi, THAT is ALL they give us from ME1: The Progressers?
    [spoiler]No glorious Asuna x Kirito duel? No NPC abuse alert?[/spoiler]
    You’ve got to be kidding! >_<
    This is absolutely unexcusable!

  79. Rifaz_89 on August 6, 2012 at 2:04 am said:

    Dat Ass.
    Thanks for the ep.

  80. SilentCid on August 6, 2012 at 4:33 am said:

    I wonder if Kirito is going to find who is BEHIND all of this really soon!

  81. @SilentCid, I see what you did there. :3

  82. Orcus on August 6, 2012 at 5:59 am said:

    Don’t want to sound like an arsehole or anything, but you clearly don’t know what you are talking about. Commie is exactly like Hadena, if Hadena shot all the Brazilians in the group.

  83. btw, wasn’t SOA a no pain world?
    because Kirito looked a bit hurt after Asuna special handshake to solve the murder case

  84. hello on August 6, 2012 at 2:07 pm said:

    It was shock from the feeling. Pain is reduced to a kind of tingling feeling, not removed completely.

  85. hello on August 6, 2012 at 2:32 pm said:

    And guys, a spear is primarily long a piercing weapon. The design of the blade with the portions jutting out in that form are for piercing and then remaining stuck into the victim, the classification being barbed spear. You can push it in but it won’t come out because of the design of the “thorns”. It’ll get stuck if you try. That’s why, since it’s primarily a piercing weapon with such a thick blade it falls under the spear category. Furthermore there isn’t a guard for protection between the blade and the grip. Another thing that supports it being a spear and not a sword. Just search for pics of barbed spear on google and you’ll see. Plus, there’s also New’s comment on August 5, 2012 – 9:49 am. It’s a VRMMO. MMOs have those kinds of weapons, accept it.

  86. CyberTonTo72 on August 6, 2012 at 4:05 pm said:

    going to stop reading these comments as i have not read the novels and there are soooo many spoilers here :]

  87. just have to say I’ve read everyone’s comments. Your all right in one way or another but if you’ve watch a lot of anime and read a lot of manga and I know just about everyone has. You should know buy now that the mange/novel will always be the better. But the animators are doing there best. This anime is going to be 25eps. That a lot for a series no a days. So we should be positive and just watch what happens. Oh and the comment about the dual wielding, in my opinion if they follow the ep setup that wont happen until ep12 or 13. they’ll most likely put that in the new OP for the second half of the series. Well i thank you read and hope i didn’t step on anyone’s toes (so to speck)

  89. Kohiro on August 6, 2012 at 10:51 pm said:

    @AMg. No they’re not going to do Vol.1 c16.5… thought I wish they would in a special ova lol.
    And as for this episode I think they did a good job and gotten all the key points of the story so far. If you consider compressing book 8 c1~6 into 1 episode, it’s a great job but leaving out Heathcliff here (which they should because it’s too much into for later episodes) would cut off another side story ‘Algade Showdown’ but it’s no big deal cause AS doesn’t link to anywhere else and not important..
    So far I just have a problem with what they did to episode 3. Why couldn’t they made it like this with 2 episode?

  90. Kohiro on August 6, 2012 at 11:09 pm said:

    @1021 we all know that (well most of us do) that the LN would be better and more info but it’s just how much the anime can keep up to it. 25 episodes was never enough for SAO’s full story to begin with. IMO they should drop something like Gundam Age’s time slot for SAO but oh well…

  91. and after of all time I’m still wondering what makes this part is worth anime adaptations. IMO, this ep doesn’t contribute to any major point in SAO storyline (except for spoiler). Unlike the other SS

  92. Kohiro on August 7, 2012 at 3:36 am said:

    @SGX This ark is more about the working of the SAO system (tricks and flaws) more then anything. If anything else it show how Kirito and Asuna work together and get more closer to one another among what the guild that they would talk about later on in the story.

  93. So at the current pace it’s looking like Ep 6 will finish off Incident in the Area, Ep 7 should follow Liz’s story which will probably go for 2 episodes I hope, Ep 9 will begin the actual story of volume 1 and end with the duel and dismisal, ep 10 will be the clearing of 74, ep 11 will be Heathcliff duel, ep 12 will be the training exercise, ep 13 – 15 will follow Yui’s story and maybe fishing ep 16 – 18 will cover clearing of 75 and closing of SAO and 19-25 will be a butchering of ALO. Season 2 if we are lucky will clear GGO and probably through some filler in, Mother Rosario will be a movie by itself and Season 3 will cover UW. I can dream can’t I?

    Question, my family just got a Samsung Smart 3DTV yesterday, and I am trying to run your Sword Art Online and Fate Zero(720p versions. mkv format) releases on it, however I always get the message “This file format is not supported” D: Which is weird because my Sherlock BBC mkv files work fine D:
    Is there any way I can play your releases on my TV? It would be beautiful ;o;
    Asking here because I am not sure where else to ask, you don’t seem to have a forum from what I can see >>;

  96. Unlimited Tech Support on August 7, 2012 at 5:44 pm said:

    @eclipsezero Thank you for contacting Unlimited Tech Support! Please let me help you with that. Alright, sir. It says on my screen that your television is a very nice TV, but like most consumer devices, it doesn’t support the profile that the HD version of this anime is encoded with. I’m sorry, but it won’t be possible to play it on your TV. You can still play the SD version though! If you’re interested in technical details, please read about h.264 profiles on Wikipedia. The HD version of this anime (and most other anime releases these days, too) uses the High 10 Profile, while most consumer devices support only the three profiles below that.

  97. Unlimited Tech Support on August 7, 2012 at 5:50 pm said:

    Pardon, I meant to type that most consumer devices support the three lowest profiles, not the three below the Hi10 profile.

  98. The anime reach Vol 3-4 and this is going to be Nice PLOT Online

  99. eclipsezero on August 8, 2012 at 7:39 am said:

    Don’t suppose it would be possible to play these via a bluray player either? Planning on getting one soon :V
    Also, unrelated, but Unlimited Tech Support = best tech support name ever D:

  100. @eclipsezero, you can connect your computer to your TV via HDMI, then you will be able to play any anime =P

  101. eclipsezero on August 8, 2012 at 8:53 am said:

    Whoa, I didn’t think of that at all! This is a huge upgrade for me so I am still new to all this herp(Last TV was from like, 2003…yeah.). Thanks for the suggestion 3>~
    Thanks again, time to go watch SAO on my new TV~

  102. Next episode Preview:
    Conclusion of the derpy episode. Let the the derpy begins. :3

  103. I still see no Heathcliff, and it makes me sad.

  104. @Cyou
    That’s why I called it derpy. LN reader not approved seal. derp.

  105. Nisemonogatari BD has been dropped by coalgirls will you pick it up now?

  106. @jon
    Look to the right of the website and see the UTW Release FAQ. Good. Now see the one that says Nisemonogatari. Good. That’s what is going on with it. Until stuff gets done from the translation checking side, it is stalled, that and somebody finds me 9001 free hours to typeset the rest of the show.

  107. IWantMoar on August 8, 2012 at 11:08 pm said:

    I’ve never read the novel or the manga that this is based on (as I can’t read Japanese) but from what I see, your translation is awesome. People have put here that you are behind some of the others fansubbing this but I want moar of your release. Moar !!!!!!!!!

  108. IWantMoar on August 8, 2012 at 11:10 pm said:

    Sorry. I didn’t mean to sound rude or impatient. I want Moar, please !!!

  109. Hi!
    please consider to make a Kingdom anime fansub, without the annoying renaming of characters what a certain other fansub team does (can’t enjoy the anime since about episode 5), thanks!
    arEdit: Sorry mate but we aren’t interested in this show, and if we were we would have started subbing it when it first aired.

    Okay, now that I finished mounting my new PC (AMD FX 6100, 4x4GB DDR3 PC1600 Corsair RAM, Gigabyte GA990XA UD3 MB, Radeon HD 6570 1GB DDR3 VB, Seagate ST1000DM003 HDD) let’s see if UTW’s heavily animated signs succeed lagging it or if encoders will have to try harder.

  111. eternia on August 9, 2012 at 12:55 pm said:

    Are you kidding me…
    I used Intel i3 with 4GB RAM and I have never encountered problem with UTW’s release.
    Anyway! Nice Butts Online is shortened into NBO.
    I suggest Sexy Ass Online.

  112. @AMg and Cyo:
    Remember that this is an “adaptation” of the novel into anime.
    An anime is a different media and thus it has different needs (in this case different “times”).
    For this reason, sometimes, little changes are required be done.
    On the other hand, to be honest, Heathcliff part in this side-story was nothing more than a cameo and, from a narrative point of views, pretty useless.
    Besides I guess they will introduce such an important character in a better way than just a casual meeting.
    Thus i don’t think not presenting, for the moment, Heathcliff was a bad choice.
    Even if I regret their decision to compress the Black Cats facts in one episode (the thing was a bit rushed: splitting it in two episodes would have make it more dramatic), until now they’ve done a pretty good job in adaptating the novel.
    Just be more easy going and enjoy the show, which is pretty good. 😉
    Ah, I want to use this message also to thanks UTWoots Staffs for their work and I can’t wait for the next episode to be release.
    I wish you all good days to come,
    I beg your pardon for my bad English, but it is my main language. 😉

  113. @Anon
    I know it far too well. It does not bother me at all :3
    If you guys wanna know how the main storyline going to be (Episode 8 and up), read the manga adaptation.

  114. You Heatcliff lovers DO realize they can’t have him because [spoiler]it would spoil the ending?[/spoiler]
    It’s not rocket science.

  115. oh and at @anon
    [spoiler]Heathcliff is the reason it gets solved. Nothing more than a cameo eh?[/spoiler]
    Almost managed to spell Heathcliff wrong twice…

    After reading through 5 volumes in a day…… all I can say is…..
    They would have been better off just merging the short stories together and focusing only on the characters that had to be introduced in that episode for it to make sense.
    Sure it would have put introductions out of place, but at least you wouldnt be left wondering…. “who was that? was he important to the story? etc”
    My preferred way would have been to simply animate it per normal and insert the short stories in their proper places in time…. they arent that long, so it could have been done. Personally some of the short stories could have been squeezed into a 1/2 ep, since in the book a few are extremely short.
    I actually hate the fact that ep1 is an adaption of something not even found in the main series. I think they should have started out dark and heavy on the upper floors like in the LN. Better intro.

  117. @WAWA: Depends on the parts they put in. I can see a few ways to add in the parts from the side story.
    @jarhead: You know it is going in chronological order, right? And if they tried to squeeze the short stories into half an ep, a lot would have been lost – they’re losing quite a bit as is, though I think that aside from ep 2, it’s been done relatively well so far. Also, the first episode was based directly off the first three chapters of the LN.

  118. dunno why, but I think I’ll watch this seriously when the anime showed vol 1. for now I’ll just enjoy watch as it is. no more critics and suggestion… Though I wonder how they’ll handle that
    “meat” scene, if u know what i mean!?

  119. eternia on August 10, 2012 at 2:46 pm said:

    Put it into an OVA. Which is only available when you buy the Blue-Ray box set.

  120. jarhead on August 10, 2012 at 10:58 pm said:

    Hmm… I was under the impression that the first boss battle was based of a canon work and was never in the first volume….. I read volume one… nope, not there. Some of it was, but not most of it.
    Also, if its chronological and they are adapting canon too, then why not animate the short story of his first battles too?
    And….. the way him and asuna meet up is totally weak. In the book it was even too quick.
    Yea. I see the chronological thing now. And….. yea…. it was late. The short stories wouldnt fit in a smaller time frame…. in fact, this series needs to be 52 eps long to cover just books 1-4, plus the other shorties. Maybe we will get a season 2? Muahahaha. that would be awesome.

  121. Solaristics on August 11, 2012 at 3:15 am said:

    Can’t wait til next week episode.

  123. SilentCid on August 11, 2012 at 4:42 pm said:

  124. Skylead on August 11, 2012 at 6:24 pm said:
