    @ChronoBlue: spoilering this for safety. It shouldn’t be too spoilery, but I haven’t watched the episode yet. Based on what you asked, though, I’m pretty sure I know how to answer that.
    [spoiler]Just reaching the ground wouldn’t help Asuna at all. Her problem isn’t just the cage, but also being trapped in the game (she lacks the ability to access any sort of in-game menu, and the ability to log out on her own). Even if she made it to the ground, she wouldn’t actually be able to do anything, and would be found as soon as he came back. In the LN, her decision is explained as looking for a console or something along those lines which would normally be used by the management (as she’s in an area normal players couldn’t reach), so that she could use that to log herself out.[/spoiler]

  24. Epic dish serves up!

    @Elucidator
    technically, “season 2” would likely be GGO and ALO arc 2. Alicization is still … running 😀

  26. Charkelle on November 18, 2012 at 6:14 am said:

    The fight was quite well done, though there was one thing that bugged me about it as a LN reader:
    [spoiler]The anime didn’t make it very clear just why Kirito gained such an advantage after borrowing Leafa’s sword. Basically, they were fighting at least on par with each other initially, and it likely would have gone in Kirito’s favour then if they were using comparable equipment, but he was put at a large disadvantage due to his inability to block or parry Eugene’s attacks. By using a second sword, he was able to negate that advantage by blocking with the second blade as it phased through the first (since it becomes solid again at that point, if it didn’t it would be unable to do any damage due to phasing through the player as well). That was what allowed him to turn the fight around, though that is only barely showed once in the anime (I’m not even sure how clear it would be to someone who didn’t know the details ahead of time what was happening there), before Kirito turns around and just starts dominating the fight. I feel like they could have at least let Eugene get a few more swings in to show the fact that Kirito was able to start blocking them more clearly.[/spoiler]
    It’s a minor issue in the long run, just one of those things where the explanation was lacking (There were quite a number of them in the SAO arc as well), and something I figured I’d clarify in case anyone was curious about it. All in all, it was still a good fight, and I’m still enjoying the anime despite Fairy Dance honestly being my least favourite of the four arcs so far (which isn’t to say that I disliked it, just that I liked the rest better. I’m hoping they do continue on to GGO, my favourite arc and favourite character).

    Yea anime doesn’t do a good job clarifying some of the game’s mechanics. I doubt they will go into the GGO arc though… at least not right away. Probably gonna wait 1-2 more seasons before we will see a S2 of SAO. Hmm… if they do make the GGO part who do you guys think will be Sinon’s VO? I’m guessing Ishihara Kaori or maybe Noto Mamiko…

  34. Delicious Fag Chest on November 18, 2012 at 9:32 am said:

    Now that we saw a return of epic swordfightan since SAO arc will the ratings on MAL bump up again?

  35. This arc has been really disappointing. Kirito kinda turned into a Mary Sue, and it’s all about how awesome he is and how chicks dig him. I know there was harem-y stuff in SAO, but it made more sense/had more emotion behind it/was less Mary Sue-ish/felt less sketchy and bad-shounen. Like, Asuna and/or other players were generally important in a fight, Kirito wasn’t always defeating whole armies entirely on his own, etc.
    LN readers, does it get better again? ALO has, thus far, frequently just felt like the Kirito, Mr. Perfect show.

  36. Thanks for the release UTW.
    I’m sorry to ask, but why your releases are a lot bigger than commie’s even though the videos have the same resolution.
    For this episode, yours is 450 MB while commie’s release is about 253 MB.
    Don’t get me wrong. I’ve always chosen yours for achieving. I’m just curious whether you added special features or something.

  37. BelaGuez on November 18, 2012 at 10:45 am said:

    @Mayhem
    This was the end of the first book of this ARC, the next book is better but as Raze mentioned earlier this is probably the worst ARC in Sword Art Online. Certainly its not as good as the first two books.
    Also a minor thing but something that bugged me for when you do v2’s for Blue-rays
    At 18:53 the line you used was “But I have to see her, no matter what”, at this point Leafa of course has no idea that Kirito is looking for Asuna let alone that its even a girl he’s looking for. Something genderless in the translation would fit better.

  38. @yuuta
    Because Commie’s encoder doesn’t give a shit about any kind of quality.

  39. Thanks! 😀

  40. Ahm.. It is said that all 4 races will ally against the Salamanders! So Kirito-kun said. Which one are they?
    Spriggan, Cait Sith, Udine (Sylphs)… I actually can count 3 races here against Salamanders involved. With Salamanders together it would be 4 races.
    So how about 4 races against Salamanders? ” The four races shall ally themselves against Salamanders.”…

  41. @olexijl
    Undines aren’t Sylphs… 😛
    Here, Asuna as Undine:
    [spoiler]http://images.wikia.com/swordartonline/images/0/08/Asuna’s_ALO_Avatar.png[/spoiler]
    As you can see, Undines have blue hair.

  42. @olexijl
    Undines and Sylphs are different races (on the bridge, they couldn’t dive in the lake because no Undine was in the party). I don’t really know whether the Salamander soldier lied to Eugene or if Yui was mistaken for an Undine (which is unlikely but I don’t see any other explanation).

  43. @ vv The soldier just lied to Eugene just cause he felt like he owed Lyfa and Kirito one.

  44. olexijl on November 18, 2012 at 1:33 pm said:

    @vv:
    What about the scene where Kagamune is telling Eugene that Kirito had Undine by himselfs when Kagamune lost his party?
    What about healing capabilities of Leefa claiming that only high Undine’s could have them? So Undine’s and Sylphs are different races?
    I don’t believe that.

  45. @カノト this ALO is the season 2.
    Sword Art Online 3 is Phantom Bullet and Sword Art Online 4 is Alicization

  46. olexijl on November 18, 2012 at 1:37 pm said:

    Ähm What is the Capital of Undine area?

  47. When’s the OVA/Special being subbed? Ehem, you are subbing it aren’t you? It’s approved by Reki Kawahara afterall. Tanoshimi desu ne?

  48. @olexijl
    1st question: That was a lie, like Shiki told on his comment.
    2nd question: Leefa, being a Sylph does have some kind of healing magic. But Undines have such a higher level of healing spells that they can heal various party members at the same time and can completely fill-out their health gauges. Thats what she meant by higher level.
    IIRC we have some examples of this at the end of ALO arc LN…

  49. Tsuyuki on November 18, 2012 at 2:15 pm said:

    @olexijl
    Kagemune is lying to Eugene about the Undine because Leafa and Kirito let him go the night before, therefore handling the situation as owing them a favor.
    Leafa’s healing capabilities are basic ones. Low-level healing spells and she suggests to Kirito that he learns them, too. She explains that the high-level healing spells are restricted to the Undine – not healing spells in general.
    I’m not sure if the Undine capital is mentioned in the novel but if you take a look at episode 16 at around 4:06 you can see the Undine territory covered by Agil’s thumb.

  51. Anyone noticed the pig avatar right at the end where Kirito and Asuna unites? Sure looks like Haruyuki’s avatar.

  52. ChronoBlue on November 18, 2012 at 3:17 pm said:

    @man00ver & @Charkelle
    Thank you for the explanations =)
    I must say, except for the “spoiling the end of the arc” spoilers, the tidbits about descriptive scenes and character relations the LN readers provide us non-LN readers, does add some flavour to the story =)

  53. Charkelle on November 18, 2012 at 3:53 pm said:

    @olexijl: As others have said, Kagemune lied about seeing an Undine with Kirito as his way of returning the favour for Kirito letting him go previously. Also, anyone can learn healing magic, Undines just have the highest aptitude for it, which is what Leafa meant when she said only Undines could use the highest level healing magic.
    I don’t think the Undine capital’s name is ever mentioned in the LN, only those of the Sylphs, Cait Sith, and Salamanders (There are nine in all: Sylph, Salamander, Imp, Undine, Spriggan, Leprechaun, Gnome, Puca, Cait Sith).
    The map on the back of the game box in the anime is pretty much the same as the one that was in the LN, though only three capitals are named on that one: http://www.baka-tsuki.org/project/index.php?title=File:Sword_Art_Online_4_-_008.jpg

  54. Charkelle on November 18, 2012 at 5:00 pm said:

    Well, since I’m kind of on a roll of explanations here, might as well add another:
    I’ve seen a few mentions of Kirito seeming overpowered in this arc, and that’s true. He IS overpowered. I do feel that ALO is the weakest of the major arcs overall, and this is one of the reasons for that, but he does have good reason to be so overpowered compared to ALO players.
    Firstly, it’s a matter of experience. Not in-game experience points or anything like that, but simply experience playing the game, or one very similar to it. As Yui mentioned, ALO was based on a copy of the SAO server, so it could be said that the games run on the same base engine, despite some differences, and Kirito has much more experience than any of the non-SAO players.
    His numeric stats are also well above those of other ALO players as a result of being transferred from SAO. In this episode, Eugene having a sword skill of over 950 (in order to equip Gram) is considered a very big deal by the other people around, which implies that having a skill that high in any skill is rare at this point. Kirito had multiple skills at 1000 (the cap), and even more at 900+ in SAO. It was also mentioned that ALO gave players lower base HP than SAO in the LN, so his HP is slightly higher than it should be as well. (As he even admitted at first, he’s basically cheating right now).
    Another point is the fact that ALO uses a more realistic skill-based system than SAO did for combat. There are no sword skills, everything comes down to the player wielding the weapon. This is also the reason Leafa is considered one of the Sylph’s best players (despite being overshadowed by Kirito a lot here), even though she’s more of a casual player. She’s a talented kendo practitioner in the real world, which in turn makes her much better at swordfighting in the game than an average player would be. The other reason is that she’s very good at flying, as that’s the main reason she liked ALO so much in the first place. It’s also stated that while equipment does still play a big role, its overall importance is lessened compared to SAO, and as Kirito did at the beginning, a player with poor gear but superior skill could still defeat someone much better geared. The reason for his strength in the first fight was actually his speed. Despite having poor equipment, he was moving fast enough that the force behind his attacks was multiplied as a result, as apparently ALO does take basic physics into account when determining damage (E=MC^2 applies here, to use a well-known formula. Moving at a high enough speed can give even something with little mass a huge amount of kinetic energy).
    On the topic of speed, one of the reasons Kirito can move so fast is not simply his stats, but one’s speed is basically “capped” by how comfortable they are moving that fast. SAO and ALO are true virtual reality games, meaning that the player experiences the world as if it were real, or at least close to it. Even knowing it is a game, many people would get nervous moving at such speeds, it’s just an instinctual response that would have to be overcome with practice. Having basically lived in virtual reality for two years, Kirito is a lot more comfortable with it than the average person would be.
    Again, despite all of this, the ALO arc does have the feel of Kirito just going around stomping everyone, and despite having a good in-game reason for that it still feels like he’s too powerful at times (using this episode for an example, I feel like they should have given Eugene more of a fighting chance in the second half of the fight, rather than have it turn one-sided so quickly). I feel like GGO does a better job than ALO of showing Kirito’s talents without making him TOO good. The protagonist having to struggle to win does tend to make things more enjoyable overall as opposed to entirely one-sided fights.

    Thanks for the awesome release!
    I wish a bit more of the info in the LN made it into the anime. Not because I am opposed to Manga or LN formats, but because I think they did a beautiful job of bringing these worlds to life in the anime. As a gamer, I find that the anime provides visuals that give off a more game-like VR world, that makes me feel right at home. I know a lot of information is going to be lost in the process, but I feel there are some vital tidbits that would have only taken a few moments to explain, even if they were exposed via Kirito just “thinking aloud” or while talking to Yui alone.
    As a side note, I especially enjoy watching depictions of various types of gamers in action in a virtual world. My favorite two are “Noob” and “Munchkin”. 😀 I don’t think Kirito is a Munchkin (at least not once he gets trapped in SAO, maybe he used to be one), but he often falls into the Powergamer category. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. “I wear black because it gives a bonus to stealth!” Good stuff.

    Is anyone else getting problems with the playback from 22:45 to 22:53 and 23:03 to 23:14?

  57. During the fight with the General, at 8:29 Kirito borrows Leafa’s sword. Leafa’s dress gets blown upwards, is it just me or is Leafa bare assed under her dress? So if anyone is flying behind her or underneath her, they can just look up at her cooter? Must be breezy during flight.

    If you stop the video you can tell that she wasn’t “bare-assed”, those are her pants.

  59. Ah yes, I see now. She must just have a wedgie or a seam, because they draw what appears to be a butt crack down the middle.

    nvm, redownloaded the episode and now it works

  63. man00ver on November 18, 2012 at 6:32 pm said:

    @Mayhem – It may not change the way you feel about the show, but Kirito wouldn’t have survived the fight on the bridge to Luguo without Leafa and Yui, just as he said. And he didn’t beat the whole Salamander assault force this time either, only General “Why doesn’t my sword pass through his blocks anymore?” Eugene.
    Will it get better? That depends. If you’re looking for more role-importance among the other characters, yes. If you’re looking for more emotional content, yes. If you’re looking for some failure from Kirito, yes. If you don’t want Kirito to be The Hero, well, get set for disappointment. 🙂

  64. ALO is set to happen in less than 7 days (from the time Sugou inform Kirito of the wedding to the actual wedding day which doesn’t happen). Unless he got all sort of advantages I don’t think he will be able to gather all sort of supports from other players within such a short time.

  65. @man00ver:
    yes, that’s true, but still.
    Those things all sound good. I did like the extent to which Asuna shared being The Hero with him, I hope she gets some of that back, but yeah those other things sound like what I meant.
    @Charkelle:
    Your last paragraph hits it on the nose. Even if there’s an explanation, it’s still bad storytelling. (Also I think the formula you’re thinking of is F = MV, not E=MC2.)
    (Completely unrelated, but I’m surprised no one in game has said “Kirito? Wait, I’ve heard that name before… WAIT HOLD ON A MINUTE.” I imagine a lot of SAO vets would never want to see the inside of a video game again–ever–but I’d suspect others wouldn’t really know how to live without them anymore.)

  66. littleogre on November 18, 2012 at 8:33 pm said:

    @ Mayhem: Kirito wasn’t very known in SAO, even after he cleared it.
    @ Mayhem and Charkelle:
    Firstly F is not equal M.V. F = M.a where a is acceleration.
    Secondly E=MC2 (where C is the speed of light) is Einstein’s matter-energy conversion law.
    That said none of these physical laws are directly related with what you you want to explain here (although both have indirect relations to it).
    What you both are really trying to say is that Kinetic Energy increases with the square of speed (E=M.V^2) and thus the dispersed energy on impact (which the game uses in its damage equation) increases greatly with speed.

  67. @littleogre:
    Actually, he was famous enough (as evident in their school after they started attending). It’s just that at that time there weren’t really any high-ranking post-SAO players in ALO, because trauma and stuff. People from SAO in general didn’t know much about him, that’s true, but the front-liners (as well as a few other people, like Keiko and Rika) knew who “Kirito” was. And then again, this is just a nick, so even though his characters are always named “Kirito”, it’s not like it’s a name that is reserved for him in advance; case in point, another player whose GGO character was named “Erika”.
    And thanks for the physics explanation part. You are right there, and we can only hope you just helped some viewers.

  68. @mayhem: in the novels, Kirito wrote his nick in katakana for ALO (instead of romaji as it was in SAO) This is something that the anime did differently, and was confusing as hell. He also basically told Sugou “here I am, it’s me” with that in the anime.

  69. @Charkelle
    Kirito being overpowered really shouldn’t surprise you anymore. He was already overpowered in the Sowrd Art arc, e.g. when he pretty much soloed that one boss, after the boss had stomped all over that Liberation Front.
    Overall, I’m enjoying the Alfheim arc a lot more than the Sword Art arc.
    Anyway, thanks for the subs! 😀

  70. @littleogre Just a small correction: Kinetic energy is (E=m*(V^2)/2) which is the definite integral from mV=0 to mV=mV of the linear momentum (p=mV) formula.
    Not that it has anything to do with SAO though, but yeah your energy increases with half of the square of your speed (assuming constant mass) so faster moving objects have more energy and therefore are able to do more work (again, W equals variation in kinetic energy).

  71. Cool ep. but i have to say i liked soa much more than this arc

    the aerial battle so damn suck, “floating” battle seems more fitting. and the way alicia or sakuya didnt mention jotunheim or whatever ice hell forget-the-name probably that part is gonna be skipped. well, kinda figures.

  76. Ashandarei on November 19, 2012 at 6:38 pm said:

    So, concerning the name “Kirito”: I know that Kirito chose his screen name because its a combination of his first and last names (or, due to Japanese convention, his last and then first), but can’t “Kirito” also mean “a sword” or “slashing blade” or something along those lines?
    My Japanese isn’t that good, but the word “Kiri” can mean “cut” (and “mist”, among other things), and the suffix “-to”, when addded to a word, can mean “sword” (Zanba-to, Ninja-to, etc), I think… If this is clever word-play on Kazuto’s part (and he is quite clever), it could be something like a double entendre or a pun.
    If I’m way off, someone plz correct me, but I think there may be something to this.

  77. @Ashandarei:
    It could, were it written using appropriate kanji (ideograms), but since he wrote it using “romaji” (Latin alphabet, essentially) in SAO and using katakana (syllabograms instead of ideograms, they don’t carry the meaning but only the pronunciation) in ALO, it’s impossible to do anything more than speculate what kind of meaning it could’ve had.
    So in his case, it’s just a nickname. One that he might’ve chosen for more reasons than just it being a portmanteau of his first and last name, but still just a nickname.

  78. Ashandarei on November 20, 2012 at 7:09 pm said:

    @Kazeto:
    I see. Thanx for clearing that up. Also, now I know for certain (at least in the anime) that Kirito chose the name not after deciding that people could take various meanings from it (which is what I thought) but that he was (in his way) declaring “That’s right, a-hole, it’s me and I’m coming for you” to Sugou. (Booya Kirito.)

  79. You guys will be doing the second episode of Accel World EX right?

  80. “Firstly F is not equal M.V. F = M.a where a is acceleration. ”

    Charkelle: you left out 1 more thing: People with more time using the Amusphere (or NerveGear) are somehow able to do things “faster” (or can perceive things as if in slow motion), so not only is Kirito high skilled, he also has 2+ years of 24/7 helmet use as opossed to the more normal players in ALO.
    anonymous: I hope they don’t skip “that jotunheim” part, the anime has been faithful to the novels so far, they do skip some lines and explanations here and there sometimes. I believe Sakuya simply mentions that, to be able to get that amount of money one would need to grind in that area of high level monsters. The director might have ommited the line to not spoil viewers of the very next episode.

    They can’t just skip Jotunheim; it sets up too much stuff.
    [spoiler]Not only will we be seeing the Evil God-level monsters and befriending one, we also see Excaliber for the first time, which plays into the final duel at the end of this arc. Also, Jotunheim, Tonki and the (of course) the sword will be crucial to the Caliber SS story, after GGO (assuming the show gets more than one season).[/spoiler]
    Why do people think they’ll be skipping Jotunheim? Because there are so few episodes left? If you think about it there’s no reason for concern. The first book of ‘Fairy Dance’ was done in 5 episodes and there’s 5 episodes left, right? Both books are about the same length.

    @Oninego I didn’t really notice anything wrong with the animation. Just be glad it isn’t the horrible quality that a series called Deadman Wonderland had in Ep. 11 (I think) compared to all the other “bleh, I don’t know what went wrong XD.”

    Is it really Leafa? I thought her name is LYFA, well correct me if I’m wrong though, but according to the Light Novel, it’s LYFA not LEAFA.
