This is probably one of the most terrible episodes of any anime that I've seen. It'll be fun to see everyone's reactions to it on here.
Last time: A beater beat a cheater. Surprise, Surprise.
THIS WEEK: Three weeks ago, we wondered how this godawful trainwreck could possibly get any worse. Tonight... the answer to that question.
Disclaimer: Fans of Fairy Tail (what few there are) may wish to sit this one out. It gets a little dry.

So this is it? This is Sword Art Online's Magnum Crapus?
After 23 episodes of bland characters, horrendous pacing, contrived sentimentality, incestuous overtones, shameless fanservice, and even a tentacle-groping scene, this episode is somehow even WORSE?
...Tonight's gonna be fun.
Since this weekend we're also celebrating the Beatles...
Let me take you down,
'Cause I'm going to
Sword Art Online
Where nothing is fine
And plenty to go crazy 'bout
Sword Art Online forever*
*Not that I'm hoping the franchise lasts that long
Anyway, I guess part of me is looking forward to tonight's comments too.
Oh, hai, Adult Swim.
4/1/12: Thanks to Adult Swim and Toonami, this date will live on as: Best. April. Fools. Day. Ever.
Y'know I dipped out of this series at the end of the first arc. I might just watch this one to see how bad it's gotten.

While watching Sword Art Online, or at least complaining about the horrendousness of this episode, be sure to post this news on social media: Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and more. Toonami is looking to hold a new event- Intruder 2. Here's the breakdown from Toonami.
"Why are we telling you about this so early? Simple! WE NEED YOUR HELP. This weekend, we need every Toonami faithful to Tweet, FB post, Instagram, etc the hashtag, “#intruder2.” The level of interest you guys show will determine how BIG the story we get to tell is. This adventure is in YOUR HANDS. Let us know if you’re excited for THE INTRUDER: PART 2 by posting about it, talking about it, and making your excitement known to the world! TOM and Sara are about to have their greatest adventure yet… and we promise, Toonami will not be the same."

College football, basketball, the NFL, the NBA, and MLB. I may not be an expert, but these sports always keep me fascinated if the game is good!
Beware The Almighty Hammer Gun!
