    Alicization episode 24 finished airing quite a bit ago, and because of that, here's a little summary of what happened so far to little ol' Kirito (Credit to the folks over at 4chan for this wonderful summary. Unfortunately though because of the rules I'm gonna have to censor some words):

    >Someone tries to kill you and your b[]ch fiance doesn't give you her umbrella so you can dual wield

    >Die

    >Become a vegetable

    >Get stuck in some f[]king game and no one tells you what's happening

    >Consider killing yourself a viable option of leaving at one point

    >Meet this wood cutting f[]ker

    >Find out you feel real pain mid fight

    >Nearly die trying to save wood cutting f[]ker

    >Have to be kept alive by loli ghost

    >Go to sword school

    >it's been 2 years and you still don't have a clue what the f[]k is happening

    >Tweedle dee and tweedle dum destroy MUH FLOWERS

    >Stop some b[]ches from being raped and get repremanded

    >Have to climb a f[]king tower

    >Get BTFO of the tower and have to climb it with some b[]ch

    >Turns out wood cutting f[]ker put hoes before bros and you have to fight him

    >Shit happens and he is now having about half as much fun as he was a moment ago

    >Finally talk to the outside

    >"Oh hey Kazuto yeah we're having a situation at the moment you might become double braindead in a minute sorry"

    >Becomes double braindead

    What a wonderful way to end off the first half of Alicization.

    I'm still keeping a segment here where I send the link to comments or sources that could help understand the episode better (Since the director really likes not adding important scenes that could get people to understand the anime better and we shouldn't blame Reki for all the crap that went wrong during the anime's production):

    • Source 2 (A major cut line that would've made the ending more impactful (It's the final sentence he says before the novel ends)): https://m.imgur.com/wNSAZU6

    I'm also opening this thread up as a Q&A for people who want to understand what's happening in the series a little more. It can be on Alicization, Aincrad, Sword Skills, anything really.

    So yeah, just gonna fill in the gaps with some discussion and memes till the anime comes back on air.

    Note: Spoiler questions and events should be marked as such.

    Vol 09 - 210-211

    Before their adventure started.

    Vol 15 - 170-171

    After their adventure ended.

      AIs don't have proper fluctlights, thereby no soul

    • So, was discussing this on Discord.

      Kirito's Alicization keys should be broken up like so:

      Pre-Goblin Fight (Alicization) | Post-Goblin Fight/Human Realm Arc (Alicization) | War of Underworld Arc (Alicization) | Star King Kirito (Alicization)

      This is because the current "Near the End of Alicization" key has feats from the Human Realm Arc and the "Middle of Alicization" key, which is supposed to represent the Human Realm Arc, doesn't have them.

      I'm suggesting we rename the keys to this and move the Human Realm feats (High 8-C Incarnation boost primarily) to the actual Human Realm key.

    • Ok so I bailed on Alicization fast. I know a couple things about it but dont know enough to contribute here.

      By the way, how's Gameverse going? I heard Gameverse Kirito was pretty haxxed.

      Edit: Also, Alicization Kirito can apparently stop time whenever he makes a call to the outside world. Should this be considered an actual ability?

      No, because this can only be used via an admin console, which is technically outside help and extremely situational. Otherwise Aincrad Arc and Fairy Dance Arc Kirito would have it too, considering the former has the same console while the latter has literally admin powers.

      Also yeah, MD maaaybe can be apart of Gameverse, while IF is different.

    • Aite, doin the key changes right now.

    • BTW. They said all the hax additions can be added to Kirito's profile. So since that's happening shouldn't Composite Link vs Kirito be redone/Removed now since the whole reason link won is because he was non coporeal?

    • Maybe. Kuroiha can add in the new abilities. 

      Also you may have noticed Human Realm Arc Kirito is 8-A with Armament Full Control Art. Well that's intentional, since his clashed with Alice's own Enhance Armament, and he's also comparable to Eugeo, so there's that.

      I wanna actually start on Asuna's Alicization key. If there's anyone who can go through scans (I can't right now since I have an AP test tomorrow), it'd be greatly appreciated.

    • Since testing has just finished up, I will most likely be more active around these parts nowadays.

      I can do so, but it would take a while. Alicization Asuna is... complicated to say the least. She switches out of her Super Account rapidly, and her scaling is sometimes wobbly (one moment can create entire ravines and split the entire environment, the next gets harmed by a low-level elemental arrow or something like that).

      I can finish Star Queen Asuna in a jiffy, though.

    • Fixed the regeneration expanation, but gonna read more on it later. Looks good right now though.

      Also, there's something that's been bugging me about the War of Underworld Arc Kirito and Star King Kirito.

      Kirito absorbed resources and was "powered by the world", right? And right after we never see him lose that power (I haven't read vol. 19 and 20 though, so I may be wrong).

      If he absorbed all of that power, shouldn't he keep it, making him 4-B right after doing so? I mean, it fits right in with Star King Kirito. Why would SK!Kirito lose power he already absorbed, becoming High 4-C instead? 

      Unless we get confirmation that "powered by the world" was only a temporary boost, I was thinking that after Kirito absorbs the stars, he keeps that power and stays 4-B, making his Star King key 4-B to 4-A instead of High 4-C to 4-A.

        Loading editor
    • It would be more High 4-C to 4-B, possibly 4-A considering that 4-B is a possibility on the world key

      That said if he's really permanently boosted by it I guess that works

        Loading editor
    • We'll need scans for vol. 19 and 20 to make sure that he keeps his power first. It's never stated he loses his power in vol. 18, and considering how consistent he is as Star King, I'm pretty sure he retains his power after absorbing the resources in the world.

      Also Asuna scales (dunno how she became Star King level, but I'm assuming it's because super accounts can grow in power preeeeetty easily).

      Also I don't remember if this is confirmed in the light novel, but Kirito becomes uber powerful via Incarnation because, just like how the STL amplified Kirito's negative Incarnation (turning him into a vegetable), it also amplified his positive Incarnation, which allowed him to flash freeze 20k people where he definitely wouldn't have been able to do that before.

      I mean, if you never liked SAO in the first place, this arc won't change your mind, and likely not much else would change that unless you decide to consume a lot of the content.

      Also the Abridged doesn't count as canon SAO content ofc. I prefer to refer that series as a separate IP entirely with different merits.

      If you really want to get into SAO content I'd recommend reading the light novels here. The username is sao (lower case) and the pasword is Alicization (A is capitalized).

      If you want timeline order (which I believe is the best way to read it, considering you'll get into Progressive content, which is Aincrad floor-by-floor), just PM me.

      But again, if you're just wanting to casually watch SAO in anime form, you likely won't change your perception on it, considering the anime cuts out a lot of content from the light novels, such as important characterization and entire chapters (which is why the Aincrad arc is so segregated).

      And then at the end of the day Alicization, despite a bumpy start, actually holds up really well.

      Also Asuna scales (dunno how she became Star King level, but I'm assuming it's because super accounts can grow in power preeeeetty easily).

      There are few fighting scenes in volume 19 and 20, because they're mainly centered off of Kirito's life in the Underworld as Representative Swordswman of the Human World Unity Council (UW's version of a World Government). The two books mainly focus on building and developing characters and their relations with others, and worldbuilding.

      They lack any truly powerful feats, but show quite a lot of progress in character made by Kirito. (Ex: Kirito can now flash-freeze using the air surrounding him at cyrogenic-levels with his hand, can sense objects and humans up to 10 km away, developing his Mechadragons, destroying entire mansions with a wave of his hand, generating 10000 light elements at once, etc.)

      ...And it's also faintly implied Kirito had an affair.

      As for volume 21, SK Kirito plays a rather large role in Unital Ring, and it's implied he'll be taking an antagonistic role soon. (Kirito vs Kirito, anyone?)

      TL;DR: Volume 19-20 lacks feats and battle scans, volume 21 contains SK Kirito as a digital entity who can also live on the internet (?), and will likely become an antagonist soon.

        Loading editor
    • Yeah, 4-B seems good to me.

      Then again, it's implied, but it's definitely possible. (Cough, cough, a certain redhead and her friend's descendants) Furthur quotes by them even say it was possible for Kirito to have multiple wives, but unlikely, IIRC.

    • Found this in volume 17. Just something I found interesting:

      Asuna sank into the chaos of the moment — Her bewilderment was shattered by the roars of the red troops that had already approached within a few hundred meters.

      “Charge ahead!!”

      “Give ‘em hell!!”

      — English!

      Those people are all humans from the real world — judging by their accent, they’re Americans!

      But, why would they be here… This is a genuinely different world, completely cut off from the real world…

      No.

      No —

      Maybe, to the people diving in with STLs, Underworld was actually a different world created through the “Mnemonic Visual” with realism rivaling that of the real world. However, the generic VRMMO template «The Seed» had also been used to design this world. In other words, as long as one used an AmuSphere, they could dive into this world using a low-end server based on polygonal construction — furthermore, the Ocean Turtle had a large, military-grade bandwidth satellite connection.

      Then, if someone were to write a client program that included Underworld central server address and the accompanying account information, and disseminate it in the real world — Not just several tens of thousands; summoning an army of hundreds of thousands was certainly not impossible.

      But what shocked Asuna the most was how those crimson soldiers acted; they had started to directly attack their supposed allies, the Dark Land Knights and the Fist Fighter army, without any hesitation.

      “Wh, what are they…?!”

      “Aren’t they supposed to be our allies?!!”

      The Knights screamed desperately while trying to defend against the attack, but their numbers were already far too disproportionate, and on top of that, the crimson soldiers’ weapons and armor were of much higher specs than the Dark Land army’s equipment.

      One after another the swords and shields started breaking apart, and together with the agonizing screams from the collision of both armies, innumerable spurts of blood began gushing out.

      “Dude that’s awesome!!”

      “Pretty gore!!”

      These Americans were probably completely unaware of the true nature of this battle. They were probably under the impression that their diving in was merely taking part in an open beta test for some new VRMMO. Therefore, she could not blame them for swinging their swords and killing everyone. After all, to them, these soldiers were not conscious beings equal to humans; they were NPCs, mere trifles. Of course, not everyone was atrociously evil; in the real world, they were still VRMMO players who could be friendly and work together with other players on the same server. If there was time to inform them of the true nature behind Underworld and the Artificial Fluctlights, Asuna believed that most of them would immediately drop their weapons.

      But they hadn’t such leisure right now. Even if Asuna tried to step into the battlefield and explain the situation in English, they would just think of her as an NPC speaking preset lines. If they were told “killing enemies right now will earn you points, which you can exchange for rare items after the official release”, even the Japanese players would do the exact same thing.

      In short, verbally convincing them was impossible.

      The people the Americans were trying to kill were not NPCs, but artificial Fluctlights carrying real souls. After finishing off the soldiers of the Dark Territory, those of the Human World would surely be next. Then, as the only one present inhabiting a transient body, she had to fight.

        Loading editor
    • Also new feats:

      All Integrity Knights or people who use Incarnation can sense a specific person's presence, even through long distances or through thousands of people. So probably best to add that as Enhance Senses to all people who are conscious about Incarnation.

      Asuna (before becoming Star Queen) could manipulate (create and destroy) terrain that can extend all the way up to the horizon, though it'd put immense stress on her.

      Vector (Gabriel) can absorb Incarnation (so basically he has the ability to absorb other people's reality warping... dunno how that works), souls, and basically everything else.

      Super Accounts also are automatically 6-C, as Asuna could shake the world and Vector obviously scales to Kirito.

      Bercouli has Reactive Evolution though adapting to skills only after seeing them in seconds, even against Vector, whose fighting style basically consisted of him sliding across the ground instead of using any footwork and ignoring a telegraph/anticipation motion and basically immediately teleporting into an attack; basically making his movements nearly impossible to predict. Vector also being faster than him and being able to one shot him at any time doesn't help him too. Despite this, Bercouli still adapted within seconds.

      Bercouli also has Mid regeneration via being able to regenerate his entire arm with Sacred Arts (no incantation needed. Also needs spatial resources like all Sacred Arts).

      Even with an arm cut off, getting a fatal wound on his chest, and a lot of his willpower and mind being absorbed by Vector with every clash, Bercouli still had extreme willpower available and still fought even though he should have been dead. He basically has Lancer's Battle Continuation through sheer will (Incarnation) alone. And he won against Vector (at the cost of his life).

      In summary, if 6-C Super Accounts come true, then Bercouli would've defeated a 6-C even though he was an 8-C+. Well, he used his Release Recollection to do it, but he still fought against and out-skilled an enemy that could one-shot him at any time in 10+ minutes. Keep in mind that this enemy also out-skilled pro GGO players, and won BoBs by going unarmed or just using a knife.

      Edit: So Vector can basically absorb someone's willpower and mind; affecting their Incarnation in the process since it's made from the user's will and mind.

    • I finished reading through volume 15 and found some good feats.

      AP: 

      • More than one-hundred goblin soldiers is required to counteract even a single average Perfect Weapon Control Art (called Armament Full Control Art on this wiki) from an Integrity Knight. This is of course backed up by Deusolbert and other Integrity Knights easily taking out more than 50+ goblins casually with their Perfect Weapon Control Arts. This should be calced obviously to see if we can possibly get a higher rating for these characters' APs. This would scale to all Integrity Knights.
        • P.S: Deusolbert was able to take out more than 42 goblins. In that battle, his second attack took out 50+, so maybe that can be calced too since that's actually a feat.

      Hax:

      • Bercouli's so GAR that he can bend Incarnation's probability manipulation to his will, as seen here:
        • You saw it happen. I swung level at the right. It was an Empty slash—the fastest attack of my life and completely unthinking. My first movement gave me the advantage over Bercouli... However—however. When he put up his sword to receive the blow, which should have rebuffed it, he somehow pushed back my swing instead and chopped off my arm. Can you believe this, Vixur? In the moment, his sword was not even touching mine!... It is truth. It was as if the path of my swing itself was pushed aside by some invisible force. Not arts. Not Perfect Weapon Control. There is only one way to describe the phenomenon. My Empty Sword lost in battle to the willpower he refined over two centuries. He envisioned the path his sword was meant to take so powerfully that it became unshakable truth!
      • Only higher-up Integrity Knights or strong Incarnation users can use Incarnate Arms (telekinesis), and those with extremely powerful Incarnations can use Incarnate Swords (attacking or defending against enemies from a distance, essentially spatial manipulation). The only ones who have been shown to use Incarnate Swords (from my knowledge) are Bercouli and Kirito.
      • Like I stated in a previous comment, high Incarnation users can sense whether someone is in an area, is alive, or just died, even if they're kilometers apart. It's more like a sense than anything, so I believe giving them Enhanced Senses would be fitting. The only ones I believe who have shown this are Alice and Bercouli, though there could definitely be more.
      • Shasta (one of the new characters that will appear in the next arc) has an Enhance Armament that allows him to negate durability by directly severing or piercing the target's Life instead of their body.
      • Shasta's Release Recollection allows him to essentially turn into a tornado of durability negating rampage... literally. He turns into a non-corporeal whirlwind that attacks and durability negates anything in a 20 meter diameter. In addition, this whirlwind "transcended even the system of the Underworld". He does not eliminate the Life value of his enemies. Instead, he literally forces the mental image of death into his enemies, destroying their fluctlights. The description later details this pretty clearly as soul manipulation, so yeah.
      • Gabriel resists soul manipulation because his "soul was dead, even as it lived". I'm not sure whether this means that Gabriel lacks a soul, but either way he completely ignored Shasta's soul destruction Release Recollection, so it's still resistance.

    • That's more extrasensory perception

      Kirito sensed Alice and another object who were literally on the other side of Underworld (1000-3000 km) before in Volume 18 (IIRC), and in Volume 19 or 20, he sensed a living object 10 km away from his palace.

        Loading editor
    • Then War of Underworld/Star King Kirito would have extrasensory perception. Star Queen Asuna likely would have it too via scaling.

    • So extra items and positive effects to the SAO avatars (and possibly ALO?) would be:

      • Cure Status Effect Inducements (Movement Slow, Stun/Fumble/Paralysis, Curse, Dizziness, Poison, Blindness, Body Part Loss Damage, Coma, Bleeding, Panic, Stomachache, Silencing) via Antidote Crystals and potions (though potions are over-time).
      • 100% HP Heal via Healing Crystal and HP Heal over time via potions.
      • Teleportation via Teleport & Corridor Crystals.
      • Either Supernatural Luck or limited Probability Manipulation (considering SAO actually uses probability to an extent for attacking, fumble and tumble chances, drop rate, etc., it's probably probability manip.).
      • Attract Hate (Aggro. Obviously NPCs only).
      • Statistics Amplification (ATK, DEF, & Knockback Effect increase. The Chant Skill gives a bonus to defense, poison resistance, and stun resistance).

      The rest of the crystals are non-combat applicable.

      • Movement Slow (Self explanatory)
      • Stun/Fumble/Paralysis (Fumble makes enemies drop their weapons. Stun is 10 seconds. Paralysis is 10 minutes)

      I also recommend SAO characters to also have type 2 Immortality just like SAO Tabletop, since even if their limbs and such are completely sliced off, there will only be Body Part Loss Damage for a short period of time before it ends. Hell, even in ALO, Sugou survived being chopped in half for pretty long, and so did Death Gun. The only reason why they died was because they were already at such low HP that the Body Part Loss Damage just did its thing. Hell, that one character from SAO Alternative: GGO didn't even flinch seeing both of her legs completely severed, and was just like "meh".

      Gazef would still probably one-shot before Incarnation happens, though at the same time Incarnation did allow Kirito to stay alive and kill Heathcliff, so same thing can happen here and lead to an inconclusive.

      They could turn out to be 8-C or High 8-C from killing the giant whale in the wave at Cal Mira, but still not enough AP to take out Kirito and Heathcliff (also why Heathcliff? Asuna sounds like a better pick).

      Also, they could also just jump to 7-A or higher after defeating the Spirit Turtle, who's the size of multiple mountains, so...

    • Naofumi probably has High 7-A durability during the ST Arc for withstanding The Spirit Tortoise's strongest attacks, which were described to obliterate mountain ranges.

      The Spirit Tortoise Heart Shield gives him High 7-A AP, although it's a one-time use with an extremely long cooldown, since he defeated Kyo, a being that scales immensely to The Spirit Tortoise, and was overpowering Glass, L'Arc, Therese, Raph-chan, Raphtalia, Filo, Naofumi, and Kizuna all at once.

      All other characters later on and his companions should all scale since they too defeated the Spirit Tortoise.

      What are the speed feats though?

        Loading editor
    • I see. I'll change that, then.

      Most of the speed ratings are from a scaling tree of characters.

      First 3 Keys:

      Naofumi, Raphatlia, Filo, and Raph-chan (All Sacrifice Aura) = Full Power Kyo = Awakened Rishia (Faster than Kyo) >>>>> Powered up Kyo (Described to be 3x faster than Full Power Glass) >>> Kyo (Outclassed everyone) > Yomogi (FTE to Raphtalia) > Raphtalia (Post-Vassal Weapon, FTE to Filo) => Filo (Highest Humming Fairy Form + Haikuikku, FTE to Naofumi) >> Naofumi (ST Arc, Could guard lightning-based attacks) >> Filo (Pre-Shield of the Demon Arc) FTE via Haikuikku) >>>> Naofumi (Second Wave)

      Last Key:

      Gaelion (Wrath Dragon) => Heavenly Emperor Arc (v13) Naofumi => S'yne >>> Full Power Sadeena >>>> Sadeena => Weakened/Debuffed Rebuilding Naofumi (Faster than Lightning, but is weaker than ST Arc Naofumi))

      If you want some feats, they're mostly lightning-intercepting feats, FTE feats, FTE-scaling tree feats (X is FTE to Y), lightning dodging feats, laser/heat beam dodging feats, etc. There's a few others. I'll try to find them.

    • The light novel and anime both depict the latter, where he just stayed alive long enough to stab Heathcliff. Him shattering and "resurrecting" in the anime was just imagery and symbolism that was a call-back to episode 1.

      • 100% HP Heal via Healing Crystal and HP Heal over time via potions.
      • Teleportation via Teleport & Corridor Crystals.
      • Either Supernatural Luck or limited Probability Manipulation (considering SAO actually uses probability to an extent for attacking, fumble and tumble chances, drop rate, etc., it's probably probability manip.).

    • I think I found a supporting feat for 9-C Kirito, don't open this if you're at work or school

      Now that you've fallen into my trap, let us begin.

      According to an intellectual, Kirito pumped around 3.65 liters of semen into Asuna in chapter 16.5.

      From Google; "Early studies confirmed human semen to have a specific gravity of between 1.020 and 1.040 [2, 14] or a density of 0.970 to 1.043 g/ml [5] suggesting that the density is close enough to 1.0 g/ml when working to one decimal place and that weight should be an accurate index of volume.", meaning that Kirito released about 3.65 Kilograms of semen.

      Now, also from the internet, "The average speed of ejaculation has been measured to be approximately 45 km/hr (just below the allowable speed limit in most suburban areas). This is the average speed of the ejected semen relative to the ejaculatory penis, and can be increased by training the Kegel muscles (by pretending to withhold your urine).", which translates to 12.5 meters per second

      So, .5×3.65×12.5^2 makes for a yield of...

      285.15625 Joules, Athlete level+

      Now, then again, this was done in VR, so it's unknown if Kirito is this powerful in real life, meaning I trolled you all and made you read a total of 4, now 5, uses of the word semen because of forking Kirito

    • Multiple things:

      Remember how the rapey dude in Part 1 broke down because he wasn't able to comprehend something and made a paradox in his thought process? Same thing happened here. The giant had a breakdown because his thought process was "humans are weaker than him", but a human made him feel fear, thus creating a paradox in his thinking. Unlike the rapey dude though, the giant managed to prevent that paradox from killing him by using Incarnation, which goes to my next thing:

      Remember how all things in the Underworld but the most basic monsters have Fluctlights, thus have access to Incarnation? Yeah, the giant just used Incarnation in that entire scene. In-fact, nearly all the major players were using Incarnation throughout the entire episode. Deusolbert's Archer moment shooting a sword from his bow, one of Fanatio's knights protecting Fanatio herself by fucking headbutting the hammer, Fanatio excaliblasting the giant, etc..

      Also side note, in the episode with best man Shasta (RIP), he was using Incarnation there too to activate his Enhance Armament and Release Recollection in an attempt to kill Vector.

      You can tell very easily how the commanders of The Dark territory are merely using lives as a currency to their war, and no individual actually fighting really wants any of this to happen

      After all, "In war, you'll die like a dog for no good reason"

      Or in the latest episode's case, you'll be lead like a pig to slaughter.

    • Finally, they tell us the main themes of SAO to those who don't understand it. Good episode! Here's a clip of the Lisbeth speech:

    • That is a good speech, it really gets to you.

      And a question, those two at the end were Eiji and Yuna? They looked pretty similar to me.

    • Probably. If so, we're getting into pretty anime-only territory now.

    • Iirc Reki wanted to add them into Alicization and it seems that they will get added in the anime. If they are really Eiji and Yuna, I don't think they are going to do much, like, fighting againts random enemies and saying some minimal lines.

    • Can we just talk about how in the scene where the Americans get thrown into recruited, not only is the engrish atrocious, but there's that one neck beard with way too hot of a girl behind him

      Is A1 trying to throw some shade at us or am I going deeper into insanity

    • Lmao.

      On a serious note, not a bad episode, but it's starting to diverge or at least differ from the original source. I don't recall the dude with another pixie in there, at all (probably Eiji and Yuna). I'm also not sure, but they mentioned 30000 players as opposed to 20000.

      Edit: I'm also thinking of making a profile for Gabriel soon, so if anybody would like to help out (making the profile and finding feats), you're free to do so.

    • Okay, after plenty of thought, I think I've finally pinpointed why the Lizbeth speech didn't sit well with me. Ironically, I pinpointed the faults, just as I started to understand what they were saying and how I fit right into it. Fiction is funny like that.

      Firstly, it just seems like it's really shoving the idea in your face. Like, it thinks that no one in the audience cares enough to pick up on it when it's told subtly. then again SAO has such a poor track record in construction that such a sentiment is entirely understandable

      In fact, Geoff kinda touches on this in a video entirely unrelated to SAO, here in his "what makes Hero Aca so good?"

      To quote;

      And the point of this video is not to dive deep and fully analyze the underlying message of Hero Aca, but rather to highlight its strengths. And I think the fact that it’s exploring the impact of social inequality and asking fundamental questions about the foundations of society, framed through a medium and genre that general audiences seem to like and understand, is a major point in its favor. I like it when stories – especially cool, fun, accessible stories – push their audiences to think about more important things. Of course, it is equally important for those stories to be cool, and fun, and not get bogged down in pontificating about those things (that’s my job). A good anime gives people good reasons to get invested in its underlying ideas. And one of the best ways to do that is by getting us invested in characters who are affected by those ideas.
      ~ professional bag of contents I'm sure you're aware of without me saying it

      To say outright "HEY GUYS FRIENDSHIPS AND BONDS MADE ONLINE ARE REAL" and rub it in for a solid 2 minutes of speech to people to convince them they should sacrifice their accounts in ALO because Alice is (apparently) made of said bonds just feels off.

      But, another thing is that it entirely praises the value of the unreality, while ignoring the points of the opposing side. You can't just live in your VR world, you need to go into the real one and work, have real people to rely on, and make an impact. Just living in another world where things are better won't really do anything, and to say it's this amazing, real place just feels... wrong.

      Though, in the process of writing this, I think I like it a lot better. The guys I've met here, while my parents are unloving and either yell at me or playfully mock me thinking they're funny depending on who we're talking about, are probably the only reason I'm sane. It's always pretty tough for me to talk and interact with people, and I don't have a woman I can lean on because my words are too ingrained into my head with no way out. I don't really understand the psychology behind it, but it's easier to type then it is to speak.

    • >Hero Aca is so good

      Ok, I don't care about the rest of the argument, you lost me there.

      PD: I liked the speech.

    • I don't think the speech even needed to address the real world in the first place. You have to appeal to your audience, and the audience in this case were gamers. You aren't going to convince them to sacrifice their accounts if you say their lives on said accounts are meaningless. 

      "But if they have meaning, then wouldn't that be more of a reason not to sacrifice said accounts?"

      Yeah, it sounds contradictory, but remember in that instance she was just proving that SAO survivors aren't just asses and murderers, and that being in SAO changed them for the better. Anyways, you could say that they were convinced because Lisbeth appealed to their knowledge that their accounts had meaning. If she didn't appeal to that fact, then it would've been harder to keep their attention.

      Also uhh, the "Alice is made of our bonds in the virtual world" thing is just a metaphor. Pretty obvious one at that. And you kind of have to be blunt when giving a speech like that. Most people in the world wouldn't want to spend the time to think of the deeper meanings of what someone says, speaking not from a writing standpoint, but instead as if I was one of the people sitting in that seat and listening to that speech.

      Side note, while writing this I also got another reason why they were convinced: Because Lisbeth simply got their sympathy. Emotional appeals go a long way, even if you think they don't. By telling them all of the sad stuff about SAO survivors being treated as criminals or outcasts, as well as teling them how much the virtual world means to them  that it's essentially another reality for them (thus being the reason why they want to protect the Underworld so badly, cause it's essentially another reality) – Lisbeth was able to convince the people there that this war is worth fighting in.

      Because VR are their alternate lives, where they could become someone else. These people are all games; they all believe that. Hearing someone justify your views makes you want to ally with the person giving the speech more, even if their logic isn't sound.

    • Yeah, it just felt really forced. Like a video essay as opposed to someone making a speech to people.

    • Side note, did someone remove the 3-B part of Kirito and Asuna's profiles?

        Loading editor
    • Well if they did, good for them because 3-B is kinda wanked

        Loading editor
    • So it shows that Asuna is definitely 8-C+ in durability at least, though apparently, according to a reddit post:

      To be fair, there were other circumstances at play here (LN details cut from the anime).

      It's mentioned a few times that one of the main features about the Super Accounts is that they have a ton of health. No matter how clean your strike is, it's impossible to kill a SA user with a single blow.

      Under normal circumstances, Asuna wouldn't have suffered such a huge injury (though she'd obviously still take damage), because she'd be durable enough to withstand it.

      However, in the heat of the battle Asuna didn't concentrate on that, and could only think with certainty that there was no way her arm could withstand that battle-axe. And because of that, she essentially used negative incarnation, incarnation that comes at a detriment to the user. She believed that her arm would be chopped off, and so her arm was chopped off.

        Loading editor
    • That's good to know. Is it worthy of being a note on her profile?

        Loading editor
    • At the very least, it means we should upgrade her dura.

        Loading editor
    • Orrrr, this means that the God accounts have Type 2 Immortality

    • So what's this argument for? If you agree with me, then I don't see the point.

        Loading editor
    • I just thought she should have Type 2 Immortality too, since even if you lop off her body parts, she'll still be alive.

      Oh, she should also have Healing/Regen on her profile, cause she just casually healed back her arm (via what I'm assuming to be Sacred Arts).

    • I don't see anything on that quote that implies Type 2 Immortality, but the Regen seems fine.

      Base Gabriel is less powerful than the version who fought Kirito, who has the actual 6-C and 4-B feats, and his first key still scales to 6-C while entirely cutting out the 4-B

      Thank you for the edits.

      @Psychic What are your opinions on his void blade? I have no clue what to list it as in the P&A section, so I picked the closest thing(s) it resembled.

    • That feat is via Earth manipulation and not physical stats

        Loading editor
    • GGo kirito needs Plasma Manipulation, Attack Reflection, and Durability Negation as well as Immo type 2, status effect inducement, and stat amp via sword skill imitation. And Heat Manipulation

        Loading editor
    • Sword Skill Imitation doesn't give stat amp. Kirito's Photon Saber also doesn't negate durability. What's the status effects he induces again? The rest seem fine though.

      Also, all of the Superaccounts should honestly be 8-C+ physically, 6-C with their special abilities, just like with Asuna. They can obviously be harmed by people in the Underworld, such as Alice (though their regen is still insane), so yeah, unless otherwise proven, Superaccounts should be dialed back a bit.
