Lizbeth the Blacksmith might be the final side story for SAO arc. Lucky for Kirito for having a pleasure harem time there. That dragon’s CG animation is a bit letdown for me. But overall, a good side story episode.
Next week, finally we’ll be back to the main plot. The production team might want to finish the SAO plot quickly so I think they want to move on to ALO (ALfheim Online) arc.
