Let me quote one of his brilliant lines: "No one dies alone.
When that person dies, the part of them that lives within someone else dies too. " And yes, this is actually something he says within the show. There is also one particularly obnoxious scene in the second episode where Sinon, falling from the top of a skyscraper, somehow dodges all but one of the hundreds of bullets hurling at her from the gattling gun below.
Most likely, the author simply put this in so that the fans might be able to write yuri doujins and fulfil their secret desire to be the little girl.
That's cool either way, but it doesn't do much to establish the series as something that can be taken even remotely seriously.
A year after escaping Sword Art Online, Kazuto Kirigaya has been settling back into the real world.
However, his peace is short-lived as a new incident occurs in a game called Gun Gale Online, where a player by the name of Death Gun appears to be killing people in the real world by shooting them in-game.
*Minor spoilers ahead* There are a lot of things that can be said about Sword Art Online, and most of those things are not pleasant. The first season was filled with so many issues, both significant and minor, that even watching a single episode was an incredible test of patience.
If that is supposed to be a method to help conceal his identity, it certainly does not have any effect when he continues to refer to himself as "Kirito".
Speaking of his female avatar, Kirito is seemingly the only guy in the entire game who plays as the opposite sex. I guess the author felt it necessary to turn Kirito into a heroine himself because there somehow wasn't enough fanservice already, what with all the frequent shots that stare directly at Sinon's butt.
You would think that pretty normal (it's common enough that people often have to question the real-world gender of female avatars), but every single guy in the game believes without a shred of doubt that Kirito is actually a girl. Sinon even goes into a full-blown rage when she finds out about Kirito's actual gender, stating how she feels betrayed and how Kirito was a liar for not telling her in the first place. Kirito being Kirito, he immediately makes a name for himself by winning a near-impossible minigame with little to no effort.
It delivers even more of the virtual reality-MMORPG setting and Kirito's usual 'time to save the day and wink at my bitches' attitude, but that's really all it is: 'more'.
It's not offensively bad like the first season was (though it does come close at times), nor does it deliver anything to keep the fans particularly excited. It exists because the author created a successful franchise and thus he needed to keep the fans appeased by throwing more Kirito and Asuna their way.
