    Wild!

    I thought of flynn from tales of vesperia after seeing eugeno.

    So...

    seeing liz, klein and Alicia as commandos was a blast!

    Didnt asuna and kirito basically get engaged at the end of sao ordinal scale movie? So wasnt the whole come to me to America because i can't be without you unnecessary? Still sweet to see em kiss :D

    And dude a luaghing coffin guy?!?!?! And so did he actually get it there.,.,,?!?!?

    Not sure how they are going to split time between the worlds in this one. Unless they are all hour long eps????

    Im still not sure how theyre going to split the time between worlds. They threw in a loop i the second episode. The dynamic is certainly different this time around.

    In episode one they threw in everything including the kitchen sink. I was a little confused wondering how all this could balance out. Now with the second one it seems like they have a direction. Does have a different feel this time around, new world, new rules and he has to figure out who he really is.

    Kirito is trapped, he has some phantom memories, will he be able to remember enough to get himself out of trouble? I think it's up to Asuna to react in the real world, BOB might be out of the question though.

    I have two or three theories.

    kirito is in a coma after the laughing coffin guy attacked him. Hes in a hospital and this is his reality while he heals. He isnt connected to that new dive system so thats why he doesnt remember alice but somehow is connected to the world.

    Or

    the laughing coffin guy was hired by the new dive company so they could kidnapp kirito and do illicit things with him. He was brought on willingly but is now being used under secret labs to conduct their real research. The beginning was just to calibrate him. The villagers could really be other kidnappies.

    I think the second idea is more likely given the aincrad arc. And yes the tournament is probably a bust. Or its a two part season and that will be the fun last third of the season.

    Frankly I was more inclined to go with option 1, but there is some merit to the second one too. In both cases we’re fairly certain that “laughing coffin” is the trigger.

    Yep what gets me is why he doesnt remember alice. Was that some kind of beta and it got reset taking him out of the history?

    Shock factor, he is now here as a result of trauma, in a world he knew little of to begin with. Add to that the passage of time in the fantasy world from when he last knew Alice.

    I can buy that. I'll up it one beyond that and state the fluctlite or whatever it is wasnt perfect. It had "dream fade" or something like that. Maybe theyll play that line. edit - thats kind of what you just said - i guess i just used the show lingo instead :D

    It was an anomaly with the flux capacitor.
