Sword Art Offline
(One episode watched)|
I was only able to download and watch episode two. This was an amusing look at what a talk show in the virtual world of Aincrad might be like. Topics include a rumor that child idol Silica is being stalked, 'Sword Art Trivia', which consists of tips for players from 'Trivia Bot Yui', 'Playback Corner', a replaying of certain scenes from the TV series and comments by the Offline staff, and 'Klein's Life Counseling', in which anonymous callers (though in this case it's obvious who the caller is) seek his advice on life problems. We are reminded several times that Offline has been 'sanctioned by Kawahara Reiki', the author of the original SAO light novels. Offline was around 11 minutes long. This self-parody was fun to watch and I would love to see episode one and any others that there might be.
