Sword Art Online attempts to counter its downfall by delivering oppai fondling – joining the bandwagon of breast emphasis, although still keeping away from the outcast of society known as “coherent story”.
Based off the light novels, many thought this would be the episode in which the often rumored “main plot” will actually spotted – and indeed, admittedly, it does seem that Sword Art Online finally mixes in around 10 seconds or so of such a thing, offering a sighting of this urban legend thought long lost.
First of all, this episode in its whole is predominantly a petty romance tale – it’s a conventional escapade of jealously featuring some expendable side-character who expresses immense spite towards the protagonist for no apparent reason besides a superiority complex of some sort, whilst all the while, said protagonist enjoys a generic harem evening with his blatantly obvious lover, a poorly designed female character who seconds as his place of safekeeping for two years worth of semen, according to the light novel of course.
Circumstances all so convenient manage to place the protagonist on an outing with the heroine – not any different than any other half-baked order of PowerPoint slideshow action with an excessive amount of unoriginal females who all lust over the leading male by default.
Whilst the two are together, we receive a solid segment of pointless chatter to pass time – till eventually, what takes place is the dreaded instance in which the protagonist intends to take action of some sort, and then the heroine decides she wants it done her way, to which the protagonist who defeated a dragon in a total of three still images all of a sudden become a cowardly mouse incapable of declining her forced proposal.
At least to compensate for going along with her scheme, he does manage to physically assess the feel of her chest for a gratuitous amount of time before engaging in a short contention with the aforementioned spare antagonist character – perhaps having unlocked some sort of upgrade in his attack animation as he topples the foe in slow motion matrix style this time around.
Now of all of this, the only two meager details worth actually keeping in mind is that at the very beginning of the episode, the protagonist made reference to the villainous creator of the virtual world – and then during the predictable fight, one will make note of how the camera goes out of its way to spotlight some cloaked geezer with a clown branded on the back of his hand. More than likely, as one would never have been able to piece together, that man is the creator of the game – meaning that he’s spent this entire time in hiding as a shady nobody.
Unfortunately however, that information is totally useless as it does no more than reiterate the already understood – unless this series intends to actually go somewhere with this development it has made. However, seeing as it took eight episodes for the central story to start, the series is still certainly hopeless either way.
