Sword Art Online Episode 25: Freedom!

Finally, the show acknowledges the hard work of all the viewers who had to endure it. After the horrible penultimate episode, I was expecting Sword Art Online to spend its last few breaths sprawled in a gutter before finally shitting itself and submitting to the powerful jaws of a thousand nettlesome rats. To say that […]

Sword Art Online Episode 24: Uuuugh

There are a few things on this good planet that are simply irredeemable. While terrible anime isn’t exactly sitting alongside genocide and torture in the grand scheme of things, it takes shows like Sword Art Online to remind me as tortuously as possible that animation does occasionally plumb depths that I previously thought unfathomable. Ordinarily […]

Sword Art Online Episode 23: A Wretched Hive of Swords and Psychopathy

  That’s right, Recon has returned from his brief stint as a corpse in Salamander custody! Granted, he probably could’ve been let out earlier since the Salamanders’ plot of ambushing the meeting between the Sylphs and Cait Sith(s) literally exploded in their faces, but why let logic get in the way of a dude in […]

Sword Art Online Episode 22: The Many Impalements of Kirito

In my free time, usually when I have to sleep, I like thinking up analogies in case people ask me to explain my approval or hatred for things, so I can use the power of comparing two completely irrelevant things to write posts about anime. For example, if I had to compare Sword Art Online’s […]

Of Giant Tentacle Slugs and Men: A Sword Art Online Episode 21 Fanfic

The two men held Asuna firmly in place on the floor, Reki continued, drool running in rivulets from his mouth as his fingers banged inelegantly on the keyboard. The thin one had her pinned to the floor, and the computer terminal that held her only means of escape sat open and unused, the logout button […]

Sword Art Online Episode 20: Kirito Sucks at Crossing Swords

It may be too late for most of you folks, but for the love of whatever entity you may or may not believe in, DO NOT FUCKING WATCH THIS. There is nothing redeemable in these 23 minutes of Kirito getting virtual fairy tail and absolutely fuck else of worth happening. Just when you think it […]

Sword Art Online Episode 19: It’s Just a Game

I’m pretty sure everybody, their mom, their mom’s fitness trainer, and their mom’s fitness trainer’s cousin’s goat has seen the South Park episode ‘Make Love, Not Warcraft’. The episode had a wonderful, self aware plot about people who took World of Warcraft way too seriously attempting to kill a rogue player who was essentially unbeatable […]

Sword Art Online Episode 18: Flying on Immobile Wings and a Prayer

I cannot even begin to explain just how much trouble I had absorbing the information in this week’s episode. It’s not that it was particularly deep or even obtuse. On the contrary, Sword Art Online’s retained the same basic philosophy when it comes to exposition that it’s had since the beginning: If it doesn’t directly […]
