    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.

    "Kirito, Asuna, and Yui are finally together again, but the locks placed on Asuna are unbreakable. Before they have a chance to come up with a plan, the fairy king makes his grand entrance."

    DAISUKI.

    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.

    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.

    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."

    Last Week: Mio berates Ritsu for forgetting to file the paperwork again, while Yui sits and enjoys the tea.

    Last time: Forget it. There's one more episode after this and then this crap will be over. Thank goodness.

    So this is it. Everything's been leading up to this...

    S descriptor, of course.

    Hey, Yui's big again.

    The eternal flight was a lie.

    "This whole thing is a LIE! "

    A perfect summary of SAO's reviews.

    Oh no she's full size again.

    No city. Just a tree. What a disappointment.
