Sword Art Online II is still Sword Art Online, both in its potent strengths and well-storied flaws. But there are those occasional moments where it goes beyond the original. Maybe it’s an exceptional character. It could even be an entire arc.
So here I am, as a professed SAO fan, discussing the ins and outs of the series from Phantom Bullet to Mother’s Rosario. This was supposed to have been done more than half a year ago. But life then threw a little Full-Time Employment my way, and all focus went towards that instead of this for a long while. I’ve been wanting to see this whole thing through, though, and would like to think that the final result was worth it.
