- The Kirigaya's in Kawagoe, Saitama. They have their kadomatsu out, but the year's not over yet.
- Kadomatsu are officially supposed to be put up on 13th Dec; I was surprised by how early that was, but lately,
- families usually put it up after Christmas instead, on the 26th-28th. By the way, I haven't done it even once since I started living alone…
- A 28th Dec (2025) on the TV screen. That's exactly two weeks after the 3rd BoB tournament held on 14th Dec.
- It's the second… no, third… time seeing Kazuto and Suguha having breakfast? I've been into tables lately,
- so my eyes focused on the dining table instead of the food, lol. They use placemats, so it's probably oiled solid wood, and such…
- 《Mechatronics》comes from "mechanics" and "electronics" and like it suggests, it's a field fusing mechanical and electronic engineering…
- …Apparently! Kirito's been attending the mechatronics course in school mainly due to Yui.
- It's been a while since we saw Kirito as a spiky hair spriggan (haha) Yui didn't like it, but it does look cool too, right? Maybe.
- This part where Kirito, Leafa, and Yui fall into Jǫtunheimr is in the 4th volume. If you're interested, do check that out too… (ad)
- I happily wrote "like a mix between an elephant and a jellyfish…" in the books, but I guess it must have been horrible for abec who had
- to illustrate it and the anime staff who had to draw it. It can only be said to be an "elephant jellyfish"; what a gro… no, cute design!
- As for why Kirito must have known it was the《Holy Sword Excalibur》just by seeing the end of the floating dungeon,
- it must have been through his experience of generating the item with GM authorities when he fought King Oberon.
- Suguha's so cute when she went "Mgh!" against Kirito's "That creepy…"! How she blew bubbles into her drink → getting a milk moustache too!
- I made Kirito say all that, but I've been diving into Hollow Fragment's hidden areas just for the enjoyment of finding rare items…
- I want another EXP +30 one-handed sword…
- In Asuna's! House, there's! A jacuzzi! (That's what matters?)
- It's the American Jacuzzi (ジャクージ) corporation that developed the jacuzzi (ジャグジー), but I don't quite know why it became ジャグジー in Japan…
- It's probably something to do with the Mishaguji (ミシャグジ) faith, nope.
- Even Asuna who first appeared at 15 years old is now 18. Not that that has anything to do with anything. Not at all.
- The opening changes from this episode 15 onwards! It's pretty different from the OPs so far, with the cool art focused on the digital.
- The part where Asuna and Leafa's simultaneous buff casting sparkles make me tremble!
- The OP's Tomatsu Haruka's "courage". I loved it since I first heard the demo, so when I said that I kept listening to it after putting it
- on my Walkman, someone retorted with a "Already?!". The CD will be out on 3rd December!
- The scene changes to Lisbeth's Smith Shop in ALO's Yggdrasil City. Yggdrasil City's a new city built right above Central Capital Arun,
- and Kirito and Asuna rented their room here too. That's where Asuna and the rest watched the BoB tournament.
- Klein said all that as an employee of an import trading company, but seeing as he was reemployed right after imprisoned in SAO for 2 years,
- it's honestly a good company & has a good CEO.
- The Cait Sith sitting beside Silica is Sinon who made a character in ALO. It's newly created, rather than converting GGO's Sinon,
- but she's quite seasoned thanks to Kirito and the rest helping with her training lots.
- "Spirit Blade Kagutsuchi", "Light Bow Shekhinah"; these are legendary-grade weapons on par with
- the Holy Sword Excalibur or General Eugene's "Demonic Sword Gram".
- Kirito changed his hairstyle because Yui disliked it with the reason that it's "hard to sit on". And she takes her seat straight away!
- The four major variants of quests are "Fetch", "Escort", "Collection" and "Subjugation", but I don't quite like lumping those about killing
- weak mobs over and over again under "Subjugation"… So I coined the "Slaughter" type, but I guess that's not quite right either, huh, lol.
- I went "Uohh!?" the first time I saw the cut with all the characters and that pickup after the weapons were fully restored, lol.
- It was all seriously cool, including that last group shot, so merchandise of it, please…!
- Sounds like Lisbeth's a long-time gamer from her words… Well, she wouldn't have suddenly went into crafting otherwise, lol.
- The stairs going down leads directly to Underground World Jötunheimr from
- Central Capital Arun and only Leafa can open its door with the key she got from Tonkii.
- A Cait Sith's triangular ears and tail naturally don't exist on the players' actual selves, but they can still convey sensations.
- When they're held onto, those players not used to it get a "really strange feeling"… or so Silica says. I want to try too.
- Jötunheimr's huge! It looks cold! The underground space's has a diameter of thirty kilometers and it's five hundred meters to the roof.
- Neither sunlight nor moonlight can reach, so players can't fly.
- The inverted ice pyramid hanging in the middle of the ceiling is the dungeon where Excalibur is and the huge hole below's called《Great Void》.
- It's still unknown what's at the bottom of that hole.
- I often represent distances and sizes in game worlds in meters, but as virtual worlds don't have the meter standard,
- I thought it would be a little awkward, but when I discussed it with Bandai Namco's Producer Futami the other day about "Lost Song",
- he represented the map size in kilometers too and I went "ooh!" in my head. Next time we meet, I'll ask him about the standard for a meter…
- or so I say, but I forgot it several times already; next time for sure!
- I wonder if Klein's the only one looking cold due to Salamanders' cold resistance being low, lol. Or maybe he's just bad with cold…
- Asuna's pretty used to the spell chanting too!
- It's good to chant slowly to avoid mistakes at relaxed times like this, but chanting in battle is done as fast as possible.
- Klein's grandpa's last words sound real unconvincing! And I like American cars! The new Mustang V8GT Premium Coupe's way too cool.
- It looks like more than 7 can ride on Tonkii's back, but there's a weight restriction, or rather, a 1-party restriction, or rather…
- If an eighth person were to get on, that eighth person will get eaten. I'm kidding.
- The music when flying on Tonkii's wonderful with its "BGM for the skies" feel! And Silica and Sinon shaking their heads are wondercute!
- I honestly thought Hidaka was amazing for getting the okay in just a single try for the line,
- "It's zero percent even for a Cait Sith master tamer fully boosted with specialized equipment!"
- Urðr is here! Huge! Since she's of Jötunheimr's giant race. As a comrade of Tonkii, her hair ends feel faintly like tentacles… lol.
- Urðr's story = The base for this quest, Norse mythology, mixed with Excalibur, Celtic mythology; the reason's in the next episode…!
- In other words, Urðr's spring was frozen and extracted from the ground, becoming《Þrymheimr》while the hole created became《Great Void》.
- So the bottom of Great Void is connected to Niflheimr, but that's still presently unimplemented.
- About the quest from the NPCs allied to the frost giants' king, Þrymr, it would be the players hunting down Tonkii's allies earlier.
- Sure, it's a false sword, but Caliburn's considerably strong, so the players who got it would be satisfied.
- It's like that. It's like Excalibur and Excalibur II…
- The《MMO Tomorrow》Klein said is the game information portal site managed by Thinker from the first season.
- Well, even if they clear Urðr's quest, it's questionable whether that's top news or not, though… lol. It's not like the other players know!
- The ED changes from this episode too! The song's LiSA's "No More Time Machine" that was never revealed in public until episode 15's broadcast.
- This song will be coupled with the ED song for Mother's Rosario, "Shirushi"! The CD will be out on 10th December!
- The ED song's wonderful, but the art's amazing too… And that choice of scenes behind the dozing girls, lol.
