So literally as I’m writing this I have quite a few tears in my eyes. Thankfully I didn’t completely lose it because I didn’t feel like re-doing my eye makeup but still I was pretty close.
But anyways I just finished season 2 of Sword Art Online and I actually really enjoyed it but honestly there were moments where I was like seriously where is this going. This was mostly during the later half of the show so don’t worry.
Now the beginning half of the show I enjoy so much because there was so much action. Kirito of course has to go inside another VRMMO game to figure out how players are once again not only dying in the game but also in real life. The game is called Gun Gale Online or GGO. Now I will say that the funniest moment is when Kirito sees what his avatar looks like. That moment had me laughing for a while. There he meets a girl and she has her own crazy past that honestly if that was me I have no idea what I would do.
Now the 2nd half of the series is where things became very slow at parts. I wasn’t for sure what the point of it was but all I know if that there was a lot of drama going on especially concerning Asuna and her mother. It wasn’t until the last 5 or 6 episodes that I started to get back into it again when another player by the name of Yuuki and her guild the Sleeping Knights were introduced.
Now this is where things got really sad and I’m definitely not going to spoil it for you so don’t worry but definitely go and watch it to find out what happens.
One of the things that I really liked about this series though that I didn’t notice until the end was that the later half mostly focused on Asuna and Kirito became a background character which I actually really liked. We as the viewers got to know more about Asuna, her personality, and also her fears. Which in the end made Asuna more relatable because you realized that she isn’t perfect and had her faults too.
Now the music in season 2 was actually pretty good. I loved the opening and ending songs but I especially loved the ending song later half of the series since it for the atmosphere of what was going on during the time and made you sadder.
Overall I really enjoyed this series even though there were moments where I wanted to just stop watching it. So I’ll give this show an 8/10 since the slow parts in the middle was a hurdle to get through but then the show redeemed itself towards the end. Now I’m going to go and watch something funny so I can stop being sad about this show.
