Let’s talk about the episode pacing. It seems that the first part seems a bit rushed, the second part of this side story adapted well but the most emotional part was not strong enough as represented in the novel. Overall, it’s a good episode.
The most annoying part in this story was the guild leader’s attitude. Why should he commit suicide after all that happened? He’s freakin’ coward but yeah thanks to his action, he deserved to be dead for sure. If I ever found any guild leader who has the same attitude as him especially when I’m playing MMORPGs, I think I should start trolling the real person around.
Enough of my rants. Anyway, thanks to Sachi for her braveness to face the enemies. Unfortunately she even doesn’t have plenty of screentime, that was so sad (T_T) It seems like a deja vu of the 3rd episode of Puella Magi Madoka Magica. Now, Kirito starts ’emo’ing around.
