How well do you think A-1 will handle adapting the prologue to Alicization? Will they split it up to multiple episodes or try to cram it all into episode 1? Which is the better idea?

An episode 0 like UBW.
>>
13 episodes dedicated to cutting tree.
>>
>>163113671
That actually sounds like a great idea. With 48 minutes I think you could fit most of the important details into an episode 0.
>>
>>163113372
1 hours special
>>
>>163113957
>>163114041
Should episode 0 only consist of the childhood or the entire prologue itself.

I remember reading that for the first time and it was unusual with all these new characters and setting at the beginning.

Which Hollow game has more content and playtime?
>>
>>163114194
Childhood only, a 1 hour episode 0 with childhood only would confuse the shit out of people and I love that
>>
>>163114194
Should episode 0 be double length then I think you could fit the entire prologue in there without fucking it up.

As for the Hollow games, I think Hollow Realization has the most content out off all the SAO games so far.
>>
>>163114284
If the first episode, double length or not, be only the childhood stuff then the reactions from the anime only watchers would be hilarious. I can already see people theorize about Kirito's childhood and asking what happened to Sugu. I would savor every moment of it.
>>
>>163114194
Prologue I isn't long enough for a 45 minute episode, they wouldn't want to confuse people too much anyway. I'll settle for episode 0 ending with Kirito dying.
>>
>>163114284
>>163114327
It would be brilliant.

>>163114300
Out of all of them, what's the best gameplay wise?

>>163114472
It's only a week before the next episode anyway, and I think that was what Kawahara was going for when he wrote that part. Adapting the childhood in one episode would be faithful to what was intended in the LNs.
>>
>>163114524
In my opinion, Hollow Realization has the best gameplay of the series. It's very pseudo-MMO like and it's combat system is pretty damn fun once you unlock a good amount of sword skills.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HOoIzDbhsBI
Old IGN footage but you get what the combat is like.
>>
>>163113372
I think most SAO is adapted quite well (In the good and bad stuff). so i think they'll do it good enough.

>mfw new OSTs
Maximum hype.
>>
>>163114765
I know the Vita version has bad performance, is it playable though?
>>
>>163113372
The solution is obvious. Do what UBW did and have an hour-long episode one.
>>
>>163115658
Not really. Having bad framerate will fuck up your SSC timing (the combo system which is essential during end game).
Honestly I watched some Vita gameplay and it amazes me how some people have the patience to keep up with that shit.
>>
>>163115748
>>163115658
I do play fine, can't imagine how it was at release.
Graphics are far worse than PS4 though
>>
>>163115748
I watched some gameplay videos and it's slower than the other version.

>>163116109
Graphics don't matter that much as long as it's playable.

I think I'll start with Hollow Fragment since it's the first game story-wise.
>>
>>163116187
Be careful of the Vita versions translation. They fixed it for PS4 to actually be understandable, but i dont know if they patched it for Vita.

If there's one thing I love about the video game timeline is that Yuuki gets to live, That alone sold me on the games. If you love her then you owe it to yourself to play them.
>>
>>163116941
Most likely in several years since it's only around floor 10.

After the Alicization anime there's:

>perhaps another movie
>main series final arc
>Progressive

>>163117407
How does Kirito react to Yuuki being better at swordfights?
>>
>>163117610
Mostly the same as the anime as I recall. Kirito being in awe of her skills. Honestly Kirito and Yuuki have a very nice sibling-ish dynamic in the games. It's pretty heartwarming desu.
>>
>>163113372
Is Alice arc suppose to be the best ARC? To novel readers
>>
>>163117901
Mostly yeah, although quality does drop a bit on second half, if you have seen the pasta floating around anywhere that would tell why.
>>
>>163117901
Yeah pretty much. It's also the longest arc so I'm worried that A-1 might be stupid enough to try and adapt it all into one season.
>>
>>163118228
It could work if it has around 40 episodes.
>>
>>163118228
Are 24 episodes not enough for one arc? How long is it?
>>
>>163118594
looong
>>
>>163118594
IIRC all of SAO so far is eight volumes and this is ten.
>>
>>163118594
If we count the Alicization side story volumes, the arc is 12 volumes long. For some perspective, SAO seasons 1 and 2 covered Volumes 1-8. So we basically need 3 full seasons if A-1 want to adapt the side stuff too.
>>
>>163118758
I don't think they'll make another 2 seasons of SAO, so I'm expecting one season of rushed content.
>>
>>163118862
or maybe we get a cliff hanger or something
>>
>>163118862
>I don't think they'll make another two seasons of their biggest cash cow

Cmon lad, they're even animating the GGO spinoff.
>>
>>163118929
Oh, and a movie after that, some years later to top it off.
>>
>>163118862
Uh you do realize this is SAO right? No matter what kind of shit they produce it will sell.
>>
>>163118862
If a spinoff manga can get adapted, SAO S3 can be 48 episodes. Alice, Eugeo, Lux, LLEEN, and Pitohui can get in the games, so I think A-1 knows this shit will make money.
>>
>>163117901
It goes to the shitter in the latter half, so it's not that much better. It also still suffers from Kawahara's lesser tendencies. If you expect something that blows away what has come so far, then you're shit out of luck.
>>
>>163118862
Why wouldn't they? A-1 should want to milk SAO for all it's worth so not rushing the Alicization arc is the best decision to make money wise.
>>
>>163118944
Will the madmen be mad enough to make a 50 episodes long season or wait two years after doing the first half of the arc?
>>
>>163113372
I just want to say that I am seriously hyped for SAO s3. I haven't been as excited for an anime in years. Alicezation is the best part of SAO.
>>

>>
>>163119093
I think you may have thought that way because there wasn't much talk about SAO until Ordinal Scale which came 3 years after season 2. The SAO hype train has restarted and will keep going strong with Alicization.
>>
>>163119047
>50 episodes long season
Goddamn when was the last time we had one of those? Also 50 straight weeks of Alicization would be an absolute dream.
>>

I wasn't the biggest fan of SAO at first, but the more I watch this series the hype it makes me. When I saw the first Alicization PV it legit got my blood pumping and got me really hyped for it already. Is this Stockholm Syndrome?

Well they have their reason for naming it "Project Alicization" instead of Sword Art Online III. This makes producing multiple seasons under the same surname easy.
>>
>>163119596
Alicezation is a legitimately good story. I can see a lot of people getting into SAO even if they hated the first 2 seasons.

The only pity is that none of the new girls are particularly enticing. But perhaps that is a good thing, because it lets previous girls remain active.

I agree on Alicization being a good story though.

The movie fights were fucking good, I hope they continue that trend. Kind of a shame the final fight is orchestra instead of a song though, it's fitting and still hype but vocals never failed to make me cum.
Other aspects I have no hope A-1 will be able to do Reki's prose justice.

So then let us begin, with LIGHT! Then program nonsense, then accelerated population simulation, then kirito fighting off LC with an umbrella, then BAM Eugeo.

Long story, Eugeo is kiritos childhood friend/training partner while in the underworld(the 'game' alicization takes place in). Him and kirito are tasked at a young age to do the immpossible, cut down a skyscraper sized and thick tree, that has prevented the village they are in from expanding their crops further because magic and/or actually agricultural bullshit.

One day their other childhood friend, alice, goes missing and the two young kids go out to find her! After a while they find her in a cave far outside the village, surrounded by goblins. Kirito goes full blackswordsmen on those mother fuckers! and gets his shit pushed in because he is a little kid in a game which effectivly makes his 'level' -1.

Bullshit happens, they find a neat blue sword, kill all the gobos, and go back to the village and live happily ever after! (The sword is some legendary item too and from then on the two use it to cut down the tree instead of their axe(WHICH ACTUALLY FUCKING WORKS BETTER))

Just kidding, Shit hits the fan soon after, alice gets 'kidnapped' again and sent off to the capitol. Eugeo and kirito cut down the giant fucking tree with their new sword and kirito takes a branch with him to be later made into his own legendary sword.

From their the two join a military sword arts / magic academy and get into all kinds of nonsense as well as build a new harem of fuckable npcs.

And thats just the begining, once the magic knights and cardinal shows up shit gets real crazy real fast
>>
>>163132862
He's Kirito's childhood friend, and he's male.

>>163133018
That actually sounds pretty great. I'm gonna read the LNs then. Which volume does Alicization starts in?
>>
>>163133132
Starts on vol9 and all things considered for SAO, its the best so far I still like mothers rosario more fuck the haters And almost all the magic knight fights are entertaining as all hell. The final god battle is cute too.

The movie really didn't have to make Eiji acting edgy and pathetic like he did, they could have made him into a completely sympathetic antagonist and it would have gone well. This is also one of Reki's writing flaws, his antagonists rarely have any dignity nor "righteousness" to them.
Yuna's dad as also kind of a dick to Eiji unnecessarily as well.
>>
>>163136137
The best thing about the Administrator battle is that Kirito isn't the one who saves the day. He doesn't even get to say that he finished her off, because that goes to the flaming clown.

Also, her plan was actually extremely impressive in terms of its credulity. Mass producing those sword golems would have absolutely fucked the Dark Territory invasion force + the Americans and Koreans, and she had that guy she charmed on the outside to save her Lightcube in case RATH went ahead with a wipe.
>>
>>163137880
Making Eiji someone who's doing evil things for the sake of realizing his dream would just make him Kayaba. I think it's better that he's a resentful nobody who hates his SAO experience and is drunk on power that isn't even his own, but who also has at least a kernel of goodness at the core of his character.
>>
>>163137880
I actually found Eiji to be pretty sympathetic even while he was being edgy. He could've been done better but he worked pretty well all things considered.

Also I would argue that Kayaba is a pretty dignified villain of the series. I can't recall any moment where he just fucking loses it.

Progressive can be Kirito and co.'s thing (and it's great mind you) but having so many new arcs with new characters but they all still revolve around dull mainline Kirito after all these years is just getting dull. Alicization is pretty great though don't get me wrong
>>
>>163148377
Kirito (female) is really cute and I would fuck her rigorously.
>>
>>163147361
>>163148281

Perhaps it's gonna calm down the hatedom since Alicization is arguably SAO's best arc.
>>
>>163148948
>arguably
It's hands down its best arc, followed by progressive. Don't kid yourself though the shitposting will always be there.

>>
>>163149274
Read the novels. Anime SAO is only good for fight scenes and Alicization will probably be the same.
>>
>>163138172
I would have agreed if the series weren't in dire need of sympathetic antagonist. Like remember, every new guy who's introduced with a new girl so far has been nothing but dicks.
Eiji wasn't that much of a villain anyway, he stole people bad memories to resurrect his waifu. Comparing that to Kabaya batshit insane death game it's mild as fuck.
>>
>>163149371
I read them, up until GGO and I wanted to kill myself afterwards, that's why I didn't read this volume back in the day, although I did hear the premise, it was something like kirito gets shot and then he wakes up in another game or something I only want to know if it's worth to watch it or if it's just garbage too, I mean if /a/ can have a civilized sao thread then it's gotta be for a reason.
>>
I can't wait for the dub and shitposting on /co/.
>>
>>163134093
It's just nature doing its thing, anon.
>>
>>163149597
If that's the case then Alicization is the best SAO arc, minus some dodgy volumes like volume 17 or volume 14. But if you don't like SAO that much I don't think you will like it either, it'll probably be mediocre to you so save the effort to be honest.

Doesn't this line from Lizbeth and that shot of Kirito looking down at his sword suggest that he wants the thrill and excitement he had from his SAO days, by its nature of being a death game. This is also pointed out in the LNs.

>>163148456
Alicization was supposed to be the final arc originally, there's one more after this one but not at the same length.
>>
>>163146851
I hope not. The movie looked a bit too sterile for me design wise.
>>
>>163148377
Early Alicization Kirito was a nice guy.
Otherwise, the best thing about Kirito is his group of friends. And probably his sister.
>>
>>163148377
Best hudbando.
>>
>>163152440
Story wise the best is SAO X AW followed by Hollow Fragment.
>>
>>163154326
I liked the mentor role he took on in the first half. It's no coincidence that Alicization went to shit the moment Eugeo died and Kirito got put a bus— er, wheelchair.
>>
>>163153823
Shitposters are largely ignored for now and temporarily civil because the hatedom has not awalened yet.

Give it several months and this place would be chaos again.
>>
>>163154233
It works in movie format though.
>>
Since the LN is technically not over yet with the author forced to write "one more ultimate arc", will he have the guts to give Kirito a harem end or a true wedding end?
>>
>>163154614
It's easier to write the true wedding end than a harem end. If he does do a harem end, I'll respect the madman for having thr balls to do that.
>>
>>163154675
Harem end is better.
>>
Any speculation on what next arc is going to be about?
>>
>>163154675
A harem end would satisfy most fans of the series. Besides when talking about in character, it's not like Kirito has it in him to say no unless Asuna cannot abide by a harem end. So if a harem ending were to be made, Asuna would have to be the one that develops and accepts to share her husband with her friends.
>>
>>163154846
>>163154948
You may not realize it but Asuna is actually really possessive over Kirito. It'll be Alice who will integrate herself in the group and convince the rest of the harem to want a harem end so they can convince Asuna.
>>
>>163155109
>>163154948
Clearly Alice can do it since There Is But One Ultimate Way was written as a possible what if ending to SAO.
>>
>>163154233
The ufotable look has 3 problems:
1. Post-processing makes the look too clean and whenever effects are on-screen, everything is saturated.
2. Line works are too slim
3. Effects are usually too dense and obstruct the action itself.
The movie was fine but I'd rather see the same quality but in line with the TV series art direction. Granted, they fixed the potato Working face so there's that.
>>
>>163150141
So she got more than two years of semen making a glopping noise inside her?
>>
>>163155291
Yes. At least two billion years worth of semen that made a glopping noise inside her.
>>
>>163154948
Well, we can't put out the possibility of Kirito go all moralfagging out, we don't know how he feels about polygamy as well as other girls.
But really, the best ending for everyone is a true harem king ending.
>>
>>163155266
Same animation quality would be great for Underworld.

>>163154901
At the start of volume 9 Kirito talked about wanting to go to college in the US to see the development of brain implant chip and asked Asuna to go with him. So I'm guessing they are going to America next arc. I wonder what 2027 America is like in SAOverse.

Celestial Blades/1H sword dual-wield in HR does deal an insane amount of damage, in addition to being extremely easy to raise because there are simply too many hits that raise its skill level all the fucking time.

There's a lot of weird Frodo moments about the story though like how come the machine had to "steal" the SAO survivor's memories when it could just scan and copy them which is much simpler or how all of Kirito's non-SAO friends appears at the final battle for no reason at all, would be better if it was the actual SAO survivorsthat joined in the battle with SAO's final boss for better closure.

It's starting to get seriously crowded in the game verse.
Fatal Bullet is going off the rails since it's going to follow your own MC, but will also bring its own set of characters too (there's your MC, your design-your-own-robot-waifu, your childhood friend and the antagonist lady).
It's stated to take place after HR but current previews do not seem to include gameverse-only characters, so we'll see.

Yes. You can have bed scenes with the huge cast of female characters + Eugeo in Hollow Realization.

You can date, hold hands, princess carry and take to bed every NPC in the game. Even the males.

>>163160297
Somewhat.

You do busy work hitting prompts in a stupid pseudo-mini-game to raise their affection level, and if it's high enough, you can princess carry them and spend the night with them in the same bed. There's a picture like >>163160308 for about every known girl, including Argo.

You cannot formally get into a relationship with other girls, as requested by Kawahara, who canonized Kirito and Asuna's relationship even in the games. But since you can sleep with everyone, that gets you mighty close to cheating territory.

When they run out of ideas to milk the franchase, I'd guess. Fatal Bullet will have you playing your very own MC instead of playing as Kirito+harem like in the previous games, so it's a step in that direction.
They also announced a SAO VR game thing (as in PS4 VR/HTC Vive/Oculus Rift), but I'm not sure what it was.

They should animate another movie when the Alicization anime ends, and rewrite the server invasion since it supposed to be rewritten in the LNs anyway, they could consult the author.

yeah, the entire purpose of the experiment was rapidly developing true AI/sentience, hence the time acceleration

as a way to "seed" behavior and culture and things like that, researchers would be put into a fulldive sleep and their fluctlight/soul was injected into the world, spending a year of realtime but experiencing a "full" lifetime of 50 years or so, if memory serves

She's a very believable villain who you can't fault for being evil. She found out that her gods were mortal and that she was just a pawn in an experiment that would eventually be destroyed. Killing thousands and using their souls, brainwashing and enslaving tens to do her bidding, all so that her people, and more importantly herself, would have a chance at surviving when their false gods decided to destroy them.
>>
Unsure if the movie was good or if SAO just works better as a movie. Either way, I'm already setting my expectations low for Alicization unless A-1 makes a miracle out of it. Glad they kept AIDS-chan in mind.

So did Kirito project himself into the AR like how the bosses would show up, or is it because of proto-Incarnate system as evident with the yellow eyes?
>>
Hopefully it is really well made like the Dies Irae prologue adaptation.
>>
>>163189967
Quinella is not a good person and never was, but she wasn't always a completely evil person either. She became what she did because of dementia + overreaching with her ambitions producing an outcome that literally burned away her humanity. It's rather telling that the Integrity Knight Commander, who is a true hero and would have every reason to hate her, did not actually hate her. Presumably this is because he knew Quinella long enough to remember what she was like before she completely degenerated into Adminstrator.

>Quinella is the ruler of the Underworld server and High Minister of the Axiom Church. In an effort to obtain immortality, she fused herself with the Cardinal System of Underworld. After her success, she began corrupting the souls of the Underworld nobility by separating the nations and spreading ignorance and fear among the populace. After making the populace believe that she was a goddess, she created the Axiom Church and named herself the Highest Minister. Quinella brainwashed every rebel fighting against her government and the Champions of the Four Empires Unity Tournament. She also performs fatal experiments on innocent people in order to learn the secrets of the human units. After realizing the invasion of the Dark Territory was inevitable, Quinella confiscated every line of defenses from Human Empire in order to make the people more dependent on the Axiom Church. When faced with possible defeat by the Dark Territory, Quinella transforms thousands of people (including familiars of her own Integrity Knights) into swords and forms a Golem out of them, her victims conscious in their new form. She claims this action was for the safety of these people, but it's clear she shows no remorse for trapping these people in such a state. A narcissistic sociopath and a selfish woman, Quinella only wants to control everything in her reach, killing and torturing anyone who dares to challenge her or "her" empire.

He's never even appeared yet, but yeah. He exists.
>>
>>163194978
>I thought she was trying out SAO because her dad owned the company.

No. Asuna's whole deal is that she's outwardly Miss Perfect, but that's only because she was raised like your typical high expectations asian kid. She didn't hate her life or anything like that, but, when she got old enough to think of herself, considered what the future would hold for her, and came to understand that she was walking a path that had been predetermined by others and had never once exercised her own agency, Asuna finally got a sense of how narrow her life had been to that point.

Around the same time as all of this, Asuna's brother, who is a successful generic corporate employee (basically what Asuna was on the road to turn into) brought home a NerveGear + copy of SAO that he had gotten as a product sample. Asuna ended up trying it despite never really having touched games before because of her aforementioned turmoil + the curiosity of experiencing a life in which her own choices would determine who she would become.
>>

To add to want's been said, her dad didn't own the company. Kayaba's company Argus was the company that developed the Nervegear, and published SAO. When the SAO incident happened, Argus was promptly obliterated by government seizures and fines, and private lawsuits. Asuna's father's company is RECT. They helped develop the Amusphere, and their subsidiary company RECT Progress run by Sugou developed ALO and were the ones brought in to help maintain and investigate the SAO servers. When Sugou's kidnapping/experiments were discovered, RECT Progress was promptly destroyed by fines and lawsuits, while RECT itself survived.

>>163195634
As I recall Asuna tried it just because she was so curious as to why the heck her brother would be interested in it given he was never interested in games; not for any curiosity about making a choice of her own.

>>163199146
Yeah, Asuna's self-realization happened while she was in SAO. Reminder that she started taking to the front lines out of despair for the sudden loss of the life that she had hitherto known. From what it looks like, it took Kirito, that cream spread for the black bread, and the entire questline with Kizmel to get her to start re-evaluating herself and her relationship with the world.
