Anime Quote:

"There's no such thing as a painless lesson-they just don't exist. Sacrifices are necessary. You can't gain anything without losing something first. Although if you can endure that pain and walk away from it, you'll find that you now have a heart strong enough to overcome any obstacle. Yeah... a heart made Fullmetal." - Edward Elric (Fullmetal Alchemist)

Review of Sword Art Online II

The storyline was interesting as to how they would move to the next VRMMORPG but they manage to pull off a great storyline as the first half is about Kirito and GGO, where as the second half is about Asuna, ALO and trying to clear the boss.
After some discussion we have decided that certain episodes were not needed or were dragged out just to fill the time slot, but the majority of the episodes were really well executed and thought out.
P.S: The debriefing episode was really pointless because we knew the whole storyline as it wasn't that long ago since we watch the first half of the season.

The Animation and Sound were just as good and amazing as the first season as there wasn't much different to the Animation, although the opening titles were definitely much more upbeat and excited which got us in the mood for the episode ahead.

The characters that was returning from season 1:
  • Kirito - Strong and baddass just like he was in Season 1, apart from in the first main ARC of the season, you get to see another side of him.
  • Asuna - Pretty much the same as Kirito but the other way around, you get too see another side of her in the second main ARC.
  • Yui - Cute, Small and brilliant just as normal.
  • Leafa, Lisbeth, Silica and Klein are just as amazing as the first season. They help Asuna and Kirito and are always there for them.

The characters that were new to season 2:
  1. Sinon - Sinon is a calm, cool and strong character but because of her past situations she's also one of the most fragile-minded characters of the whole series.
  2. Kyōji - Kyōji is always there for Sinon in both the real world and virtual world but is easily made jealous.
  3. Deathgun - The name speaks for it self. Killing strong opponents in the game and...
  4. Yuuki - Yuuki is a very kind and bubbly strong leader but just like Sinon is also fragile in certain ways because of a certain situation.
  5. Kyouko (Asuna's Mother) -  She's very narrow minded but does care  a lot for Asuna and her life, as she wants her daughter to get the best in life. She is very reluctant to change but she has a heart.

P.S: Kyōji was annoying as hell when he kept shouting ASADA-SAN !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Overall we really liked this season, but certain things stopped it from being perfect in our eyes.

Final Rating:

Story- 9/10
Animation- 10/10
Sound- 10/10
Characters- 9/10
Overall- 9.5/10
