Episode 1 Discussion

Last time, in a somewhat Pyrrhic Victory, Administrator Quinella was defeated, but in the process, Cardinal and Eugeo died, Alice's memory crystal was destroyed, and Kirito was struck down when the attackers invading the Ocean Turtle hit the power supply.  Find out where things continue from here on out, on Sword Art Online: Alicization - War of Underworld, tonight, on Toonami.

Yep, I've got some work to do now, editing, now that I won lol.

So what should it be labeled as, then?

It shows season 3 episode 25 on my DVR too.  Funny enough, my SuddenLink TiVo DVR seems to think SAO is coming on EVERY WEEK, even when it isn't on, then corrects itself when it gets closer to Saturday.  But until then, it says it's going to record 2 episodes of SAO every week... very odd.

Let's see how everyone else labels it.  Funimation has it as episode 25. Hulu treats it as a separate series and calls this episode Season 2 Episode 1.  Crunchyroll calls it episode 1.  Whatever the fuck "Hi-Dive" is, it calls it Season 2 Episode 1.  MyAnimeList calls it episode 1.  AnimeNewsNetwork calls it episode 1.

Wikipedia calls it episode 25.  By the way, over all this is the 75th episode of SAO!  Don't know if that includes the GGO spin-off series.

In any case, writing season number or whatever else takes too much space, and I like just calling it episode 1, so I'll leave it as is.

Here are some promotional magazine scans.  I thought it would bloat the OP too much to put them there.  Don't know if there is a translation available for these, but I assume nothing that's written here can allow us to glean too much about the new season.  

Check out this TEN BILLION PERCENT STRAIGHT magazine spread of COMA KIRITO and GHOST EUGEO!

And here's the others.  Looks like mostly a retrospective.  Lol at the Asuna stripping scene being included.

that one's a joke

 

in the new season Ash has no female traveling companion and his new male traveling friend keeps blushing at him and getting flustered around him, so it seems like they're hinting at the idea of making this seasons "Misty" be the guy.....but much like his relationships with all the girls he travels with, it's not bloody likely Ash will ever return his crush....or even realize Gou has a crush on him

Ah.  Well, you can see why it threw me off when you’re showing genuine LBGTQ+ characters.

Where were we?  Oh yeah, SAO’s Toonami’s Fire Emblem.  It shows up and BOOOOOOOO.

At least it appears the LA one isn’t happening.

as an aside the theme of the current pokemon season is a duet sung by two male Utaite singers known for singing BL themed Songs...so TCPI knows what they're doing

To celebrate the return of everyone's least favorite Toonami program, here's a tweet I made last week.

That random casino sign girl really looks like Asuna in a sexy version of her Knights of the Blood Oath uniform, doesn't she?

Were people actually saying that?  Even then, the shows have almost nothing in common besides the fact they take place in virtual worlds.  And the original SAO short story was published on Reki's website way before that, around 02 I believe.

I don't know if SAO was being progressive so much as giving fans another pairing to ship and make porn for.  But Kirito is straight.  Well, maybe both of them are bi, but Kirito has Asuna and Eugeo was in love with Alice.

But at least SAO had Yuuki.

And the GGO series 

Spoiler

Has lesbians.

But Reki didn't write that one.

We got a lot of strong characters to fill the protagonist role in his stead.
