Who's excited for SAO 3? I'm not... Tell me your opinions.
>>
>>137541411
I'm not excited for it, but the current LN arc (the one that should be covered in hypothetical S3) is the best one yet IMO, it's also half of the current published vols so I don't know how they would go around adaptating it.
>>
>>137545179

They spent an entire volume in one room. The previous volume was split between 2. I don't think there will be too much issue.
>>
>>137541411
Is this the gay arc?
>>
>>137545534
Yes it's the gay arc. Depending on how they handle Eugeo it could potentially be the most profitable arc too from all the fujo money
>>
>>137541411
I can't wait for 24 episodes of chopping a tree.

I've seen shows with a wonderful premise butchered in execution. SAO always struck me as a horrible premise with a wonderful execution.

I'm not excited, but I do plan on watching it. I figure /a/ hates it, so it can't be all that bad.
>>
Didn't even know it was a thing. I watched 2 seasons of this garbage so far, I might as well watch a third for the hell of it.

Not even announced yet. Not much to be excited about.

>They spent an entire volume in one room
They spent very little of the volume in the Library—Oh wait, you mean Volume 14? Yeah, I forgot how much of that took place in just one room, cause so much happened.

>>137545534
Is that a problem?

>>137549652
I remember the rage the day that volume came out, cause everyone knew it was coming, but was hoping Kawahara would change it. Not even translations out yet, and the fandom (the part that reads the LN) lost its shit.

It's retarded and silly, but the reasoning seems to just be "we don't have access to any accounts that can directly interfere with the system".

But of course, the Dark Emperor and 3 Goddesses, don't need to bother adding passwords to these accounts, right?
>>
>>137541411
It'll be shit like SAO2.

Why the fuck is kirito or whatever his stupid name is a cyber cop? The second some detective pulled him aside and told him he was the only one for the job was the second the show was forever dead to me.

The first one took an OK concept and ran with it. It was pretty good fun up until the final arc outside of the game. That was complete shit. Then it just got worse and worse.

>>137550062
If kirito is done maybe it'll be worth at least watching the first episode.

That would be SAO season 4, assuming season 3 alone covers the entire Alicezation arc

Can't really blame them now, Eugeo was as main of a character as Kirito for half of the LNs.

You don't have to wait until you almost die and then kill a man with your BEAR HANDS to actually get together.

Look at this. It's lewd as hell. And the earrings. This isn't even harem yet - it's just blueballing.
>>
>>137551597
It's more like, they're so close to finishing the game that Asuna can finally stop playing since that was her reason in the first place. She wanted to complete the game and go home. Once 2 years passed, the front liners were more than capable of handling everything themselves.
>>
>>137551420
Actually, not even scans.
Someone just ripped the images from Bookwalker. Which surprises me that it took so long to get.
>>
>>137551650
What? Remember, it was Kirito who was the one who said "Let's ditch everything and just fuck off back to our cabin for the rest of the game" and it was Asuna who pulled him back and said "No, we have to finish this because people depend on us, and we're needed to get ourselves out of the game".

What the fuck, he dies? I stopped reading just before the battle between him and brainwashed eugeo and was thinking of starting up again but shit.
>>
>>137541411
Nope. This arc removed the game mechanics and makes it run-of-the-mill "it's medieval fantasy! But it's also sci-fi because it's all VR!"
>>
>>137552037
B-but there's Life (HP), and like, two stats!

Of the translated novels? AFAIK, no one's done it or scanned the novels. I'm a little surprised, actually.

Or do you mean the Japanese? Do the Japs even do epub?

>>137552037
Rather, the game mechanics exist as conveniences for Kirito, much as they did in the Fairy Dance arc.

The shoddiness of RATH's programming is mindboggling.

It's not a death flag if you live for over 5 books.

This was my favorite part within this arc, like them traveling and going to the academy. Not sure why this was so minimal.

>It's not a death flag if you live for over 5 books.

Ok, btw I don't remember where but it's been predicted heavily that he'd die due to him compromising Kirito's harem somehow. These predictions were from the first novel of this arc.
>>
>>137552037
Have you even read the LNs, there's still stats and skills and magic.

More like Eugeo had to die for Alice to become part of the Kirito harem, without it being NTR somehow(even though it still is).

>shipperfags
It's always about the romance with you guys.

>>137552178
It was pretty much skipped over entirely in the web novel.
Guess Kawahara decided to write Volume 10 for some fluff or something?

>>137552218
>but it's been predicted
We had spoilers from the web novel.
When Volume 13 came out, and it looked like the LN deviated from the WN, some people actually thought Kawahara was going to avert his death. But then 40 pages into Volume 14, and everything goes back to reading just like the Web Novel.

And then the author says in the Author notes "I was gonna change it so he didn't die, but couldn't" with some lame excuse.
>>
>>137541411
It's where I gave up on the LN so I'm not particularly looking forward to it

It felt like it was pretty good until Asuna and crew showed up
>>
>>137552037
They actually have the Stacia Window, which is basically the life and priority of items and or people. I'm not sure if you can get more stats out of them, but think of it as a status window.
>>
>>137552281
>And then the author says in the Author notes "I was gonna change it so he didn't die, but couldn't" with some lame excuse.
People actually didn't want him to die?
What the fuck?

>>137552295
>It felt like it was pretty good until Asuna and crew showed up
You read it all the way up to the latest volume, and just now gave up?
>>
>>137552272
Not really a shipperfag but honestly I can picture so many pure fags hating another male lead within a harem setting complaining to the author to kill him off.
>>137552281
>And then the author says in the Author notes "I was gonna change it so he didn't die, but couldn't" with some lame excuse.
Perfect example of this, of course the real reason were sales.
>>
>>137552323
No, this was about three or so years ago

Exact wording for why the author didn't change Eugeo's death:

>Actually, while revising the web edition for the paperback edition, I seriously considered altering Eugeo’s fate. Eugeo withdrew from the stage while stifling himself the entire time in the web edition, so I thought it would be fine if he got hold of a new fate since I was given this chance to rewrite it.

>However, it didn’t happen in the end. When I reached «that scene» in my revision, I just couldn’t overwrite the original story. It was as if Eugeo himself was denying any change to his fate. Or perhaps that was his final and greatest assertion after holding himself back the rest of the time.

I feel that he just didn't feel like it, cause he was busy, and would then have to write 4-5 more books from scratch, instead of just minor editing his web novel that was already mostly written.
I honestly doubt it was because Eugeo somehow harmed the harem, seeing how Kirito immediately went into a coma, and was thus out of the picture for several volumes (2 so far, probably going to be out for half/most of next volume too)

>>137552320
Eugeo was a nice boy. The franchise is really missing a likable "rival" character.

I guess if Eugeo stayed alive, there would've been like an NTR quadrangle or something. Messy.
>>
>>137552519
>Eugeo was a nice boy.
All the much better reason for him to die. He sacrificed himself for a good cause and the fact people want him alive shows how great of an effect his death had.

And yet most people who are excited for VR would still say SAO was shit or mediocre, at least in story. And Oculus, Vive, PSVR, and most of these things would have happened anyway. SAO is just a drop in the water.

Oh yeah, I think maybe in a previous thread or something it was probably derp_commander who was like "No one could possibly enter SAO after it had started already". I forgot Sister's Prayer directly addressed it when Merida made all the preparations to enter SAO long after it had already started.

So /a/. If you had a terminal illness and the FCC screwed up and there was a VR deathgame going on, would you jump in "in pursuit of something worthy of burning [your] life away for"?

Kirito goes into a coma because of the evil NSA.

The surviving Law guys try to train up a peasant army in preparation for the Chaos invasion (Chaos are led by the literal God of Darkness who is also an evil NSA agent who eats souls like rape).

They get rekt, but Kirito's harem save them with GM accounts and deebeezeee powerlevels.

NSA connect UW to the internet and get 50,000 American players to connect (it was advertized to them as a beta test for a new AO-rated VRMMO where you're allowed to slaughter anything and everything you like, with blood and guts), they mass murder UW residents and think it's hilarious.

To defeat them the main characters get 2,000 Japanese VRMMO players to connect. Despite the difference in numbers the Japanese are superior and win because Asian gamer damashii.

Then PoH (who is also an evil NSA agent) unleashes a zerg rush of Korean and Chinese gamers who were recruited by being told this is the a Korean VRMMO that's in beta test but evil Japanese hackers broke into the server, turned off pain dampening and are torturing their countrymen.

Even when some Japs who speak Korean try to explain the situation to them they don't listen because hurr japanese

The other NSA guys are surprised this works, they thought it wouldn't be worth it because they didn't think Japan is more different from Korea/China than European countries are from each other (hur)

Koreans and Chinese overwhelm Japs because this is every Jap's worst nightmare.

Kirito wakes up (thanks to the literal POWER OF LOVE from his entire harem) and wipes them all out in one attack though.

(Also PoH's motivation is that he's Korean and he hates Japanese so when he got stuck in SAO he decided to set up Laughing Coffin and have them and the clearers kill each other for shits and giggles because Nips killing each other is hilarious.)

Later Kirito and Asuna become gods because of x100000000000 acceleration.

The UWers travel to virtual planets with rocket dragons.

I know it won't happen but I would like it, honestly I don't like SAO but Eugeo was refreshing in a sense. I was also hoping Alice wouldn't be in the harem and she was her own 'woman' and the brainwashing was nonsense, but it's what sells so.
>>
Oh man, I thought this was a new character for a change, but Gundam Seed Destiny much?

I rewatched season 1 of SAO because Log Horizon, Overlord, Danmachi, Grimgar and Konosuba gave me the itch, but the second watch is pretty infuriating. SAO has to be the winner of series with most wasted potential award.

>Good premise (.hack but everyone is stuck in the game not just one- all that despair)
>The production values and designs
>That world and backdrops
>Good OST (Shit for Kajiura standards but shes incapable of producing something not good)

All ruined by childish writing, I mean laughably bad. Even the first season is plagued with complete retardation. Every chance the writer has to make the story turn in an interesting direction he blows it.

Atleast this series spawned an entertaining genre.
