Not to get too spoilery, but this was the episode I was waiting for. The entire second half of the series was just leading to the events in #24.
I hear peeps yapping that this show is a shit-tier anime for Naruto fans. Really? Are you that bitter and angry at every new show that gets released? Because Sword Art Online isn’t “OMG BEST SHOW EVAR” but it’s definitely one of the most enjoyable shows I’ve seen this year.
I’m not sure I’ve seen a show so quickly get the “cool to hate things” crowd riled up (at least since K-On!)
Anyway, I personally can’t wait for the next couple of episodes. I do sincerely hope they don’t fuck up the ending, leaving it open or not providing at least semi-full closure.
Guess we’ll see.
