Well no, I agree. I was fine with reading it, because as you said it is amusing (and pretty typical Japanese eroticism, I wouldn't say it's poor, just very stock) but I would not want to look up the infamous doujinshi based on Chapter 16.5. Likewise, I don't particularly care for the posters and dakimura showing Asuna and Lisbeth in various states of undress (there's even an open-shirt Kirito dakimakura I stumbled across the other day, hahaha.)

I'm pretty sure Ethics Code: Off is not mentioned in the anime, if it is, maybe once. According to the Wikia the web novel version stated that they did it, but the light novel version doesn't bring it up (and the anime is obviously based on the light novel.)

In the light novel, it doesn't explicitly said that they had sex that night. But I'm sure Asuna stripped down to her underwears, shocking Kirito, and discussion about ethics code ensued because Kirito asked "can you actually 'do it' in SAO", implying that they are gonna do it. I actually liked that scene in the novel because Kirito not knowing the ethic code off function shows that he had been a loner all this time with no thoughts except killing mobs, kinda proving his determination and dedication to finish the game (which consequently resulted in him getting Dual Wield skill) when everyone else is having fun and sex. Probably butchered in anime though.

In anime, I remembered they showing Asuna under the blanket, implying her wearing nothing, with Kirito at the bedside, already fully clothed. Damned Kirito looking so mature when he was also a virgin a few moments ago.

Eh, not having read the novel, I assumed that Asuna was still wearing her bra and panties underneath the covers (I assumed that the game wouldn't actually allow her to strip further. She was still covering up because she was embarrassed earlier about being seen in her undergarments.) Kirito just sitting on the bed like that...Well that's his thing, I totally believe what he said and that he just wanted to stay in the same room as her that night; even when they lived together he slept in those clothes. I forget what Asuna wore in bed at their house, but I think she had pajamas or a nightie.

In fact, one of the things that amuses me to no end, is the fansub of that scene when Kirito pokes Asuna. I'm not sure if the translation was wrong, but he says "Sorry, did I wake you?" and it's like no shit stupid you just prodded her cheek. The dub changes it so he sweetly say "what're you smiling about?" as she wakes up.

I wouldn't have been surprised if Kirito was just as clueless as the scene in the anime leads one to believe.


What I was talking about with regard to the Wikia, apparently the web novel states that they did "everything that the system permitted" which were two lines that lead to the creation of 16.5. As I mentioned, that was changed when the light novel came out, but from what you're telling me it sounds like Ethics Code: Off was still a prominent discussion in that scene in the light novel.

I like your outlook though, I would find it pretty funny if everybody's boning behind Kirito's back. At the very least Asuna confirms in 16.5 that all she did was, uh, raid her own dungeon a couple times, and that does a good job of keeping their relationship pretty innocent and pure like you said last page.


Edit: http://www.siliconera.com/2014/11/25/philia-returns-spriggan-sword-art-online-lost-song/ this is kinda cool.

All those Miyazaki movies I've been watching made me want to watch anime again, so I'm watching Amagi Brilliant Park. Its pretty funny. Its only up to episode 8 but it seems to get better in each episode. The mascot characters really make the show, but especially in episode 8. The show doesn't rely on them exclusively, but they do help out a lot. There are a lot of supporting characters in this show.



As for the protagonists, I'm not sure what to think of Kanie. His reaction to certain situations seem kinda erratic, but I'm not sure if that's the point of him or what. Isuzu seems like a more emotional version of Tear (with the whole military background and all), but with a lot more fanservice. The way she shoots people so indiscriminately is pretty funny, though.

"Old Man Ral said, Gunpla is only a game. That's exactly why people take it seriously."

That aside, this season has a serious lack of a Yuuki Tatsuya/charismatically hot rival with flamenco theme to make me really look forward to new episode. I mean, I'm enjoying it thus far, but the story somehow lacks a visible goal and is mostly just Gunpla of the Week/Jigen Haoh school Ougi of the Week, not that there's anything wrong with the latter.

That's exactly how I feel with Try. I mean I love Build Burning a lot. But the lack of a main rival that serves as a somewhat motivation is hurting it. That's what I love about the first season. And the Flamenco theme too.

Also I feel like the supporting cast aside from nee-san and Gyanko are lackluster compared to Fellini, Mao, and even Nils.

Welcome back to GGO it's time to deflect some bullets, who's Asuna again?

Also I suggested SAO to a co-worker (another gamer, watches some anime like Naruto) a couple weeks ago and he ended up marathoning the first season also and just started the second. I gotta say, it's really nice to watch big-name anime series' without a toxic fanbase surrounding it (Attack on Titan 2 will probably be great since the whiners won't watch it.)


I also finally started watching Durarara!! which is fantastic, even just a couple episodes in, it's already feeling like Baccano! which is a good thing. I love how the author always has like 15-20 major characters constantly crossing paths where most fiction will have like 3-6 main characters and a bunch of rarely-significant supporting cast members.

Honestly part of me is tempted to just watch all the anime series' that took part in Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax.

Kirito even says that it was much easier to deflect magic projectiles as well, what a showoff lol

Speaking of Durarara!! I think there was a 2nd season coming out soon.

Iie senpai.

But seriously that's a lot of series. If you do end up liking Oreimo then..... eh. I think the only one I have not seen was Ro-Kyu-Bu! and I have not heard of Virtua Fighter /shot

Well for the main fighters I haven't seen Oreimo, Accel World, The Irregular at Magic High School, Black Bullet, Valkyria Chronicles (though I own the game on PC now,) Shana season 3, Durarara!! is in progress, Toradora! I actally never finished (it was pretty much in the middle of Toradora! when I stopped watching 90% of everything every season and put anime on hiatus for a while) but plan on buying NISA's dub set, and then Ro-Kyu-Bu! and Strike the Blood.

Obviously I planned to play VC, watch Durarara!! and finish Toradora, the others I had no plans of seeing. I may as well watch VC's anime, though I haven't heard good things.

With the assist characters, I haven't seen Boogiepop Phantom (though I actually just ordered the TV series and movie before bringing this up,) Dokuro-chan (but I always planned to buy and see it,) Denpa Onna to Seishun Otoko, Spice and Wolf Season 2, The Pet Girl of Sakurasou and The Devil is a Part-Timer! (this is going to be in my next RightStuf order though,)

Edit: Missed Golden Time.

Considering that a lot of these are 12-13 episoders, it's really not a lot.


It looks like Virtua Fighter got a TV series way back when, but...Virtua Fighter is Sega's flagship fighting game, really, the original 3D fighter that all 3D fighters look up to The series has kind of stagnated with the latest version (there have been updates but Virtual Fighter 5 has been the primary game since 2006, and the last new characters as 2008; the last update was in 2012.) VF is known for being an extremely technical game, possibly the most skill-based fighting game series.

Considering that it's not a Dengeki series and I really don't have an interest in VF besides trivia, I don't really feel a need to watch it. Shana's the only one I'm hesitant about because I can't remember if I finished Season 2...Pretty sure I watched the first two seasons and the movie. I've been meaning to buy Spicy Wolf anyway so watching both seasons back to back is no problemo. I was even planning on watching Kino's Journey and Allison and Lillia back to back as well.


By the way if you haven't watched Allison and Lillia you are missing out. That, Kino's Journey, along with SAO, and Natsume Yuujinchou are my top 4 anime.

Fifth place might be Haganai's dub or hell maybe even One Piece's dub because Robin is mai anime waifu (and I've got one hell of a good feeling about The Devil is a Part-Timer's dub, check out some clips on FUNi's YouTube channel,) but I also need to give an honourable mention to anything by Ryougo Narita. I also recommended Baccano! and Durarara!! to that co-worker after they got back to me about SAO.

Did you see that fish? It looks like he can cook now, too. I can't wait until Alicization is done so we can have virtual Yakitate!! Japan where Kirito dual-wields frying pans and uses his amazing reflexes to toss food between the two pans for maximum grillage on both sides.

That's a lot of series to watch, like, a LOT. With lots of tropes to conquer as well :V
I mean, if you ever do get to watching some of them, have fun with Oreimo...! And i forgot that I never finished Shana either, I think I stopped sometime in S2, I think 2-3 episodes? It was, eh.
AND HOW HAVE YOU NOT PLAYED VC!?!?!? Though I just played it for the first time like 7 months ago so I'm not one to talk.... But man that's a lot of anime to marathon, Spice and Wolf 2 and Sakurasou notably are ones that should be enjoyable.

> 12-13 episodes is not a lot
I would totally agree with you...! ..... if it was me 2 years ago. Though with this semester ending in 2 weeks I can finally clear some backlog and watch anime series because I have no job.

I put Kino's Journey on my PTW list
Spoiler:
 
I left off Natsume Yuujinchou somewhere in S1... I didn't hate it though it felt a bit slow. I heard amazing things from it though, especially with the later seasons. Although Kino does seem interesting!

I don't have a PS3 so I couldn't even play it until the PC version came out...And I really need to clean out my hard drive so I can't even install it right now.

Also I don't know how people ever think that Kino's a dude.

Seriously though. Allison and Lillia. I don't think I've ever met someone else who's seen it, and it's a masterpiece. If you love the feeling of ADVENTURE, watch it.

Edit: Durarara!! is not helping with my desire to watch Dengeki stuff. The otaku duo keep referencing shit, and I'm actually getting all these references.

I finished Durarara!!. First half was a masterpiece (1-12) but the second half had some serious problems with being too abstract and preachy, and not delivering on a major plot point (Izaya
Spoiler:
 
.) I realize the novels go on much longer so that's probably why, but it seems like a huge aspect of the plot and the entire reason for those events to take place in the first place. It really doesn't help that I don't care much for Masaomi or Anri, when I like pretty much every other character in Baccano! and Durarara!! (Well I also don't really like Izaya because I hate characters whose gimmick is just knowing everything before everyone else and being smug and untouchable, but the way he manipulates people is at least interesting.) The second OP also bothers me because I don't think Shizuo's brother shows up once in the second half, and the traffic cop is nigh inconsequential, he's just a running gag. I felt that the first OP captured Baccano! experience of the ensemble cast perfectly, but the second was not good, the second OP also just didn't have that scene-to-scene flow that the Baccano! and Duararara!! OPs had.

Also hot damn, Shinra and Celty are an adorable anime couple, their scenes are some of my favourites. Chalk that up alongside Kirito and Asuna and any of the relationships in Allison and Lillia for actually feeling serious. That scene with Walker and Erika dancing was also pretty cute, but I don't really get the impression that they're dating.

Shizuo is pretty rad. I like how he describes that scene where he tripped in the rain. I like Kadota's entire group as well, both for the nerdiness and for just having good camaraderie and being badass, including the illegal immigrants Kazutano and the boy whose name I forget. I mean you can't not like them after they start singing when they successfully interrogated that one abductor. Some of the other supporting Dollars members are cool, like the harmonica player.

Aren't you also one of the few people here who's seen Natsume Yuujinchou as well?

Hooooly shit dat Log Horizon. Today's episode was like it was reading my mind about my own life in a lot of ways, and now I have a lot of deep respect for someone who to me (and really, to the plot) was nothing more than a side character until now.

Not sure where else to post it and I didn't want to make a new topic but man,

I finally finished Gundam Build Fighters and it is one of my favorite series of all time now.

Sei and Reiji would be suicidal maniacs in any other installment of the series, but wow, that ending.
My God that ending.

And all those references.

I don't even.

And then there's this

Reiji deserves his own series.

Heck yeah. Build Fighters is too awesome. Try hasn't reach that level of greatness yet but its really good too.

I love the dynamic between Meijin Yuuki and Sei and Reiji.

Also as you can see Sengoku Astray is my fav gundam in it.

To be honest I love the main trio dynamic of Try.

I am expecting great things for this season.

Also, Gundam Fenice Rinascita for me.
