The way Yui left was kinda sad =/
But apparently she's coming back as a constant plot device/cheat code so...<.<
Kirito himself is a cheat code then.
Yui is a sweetie.
Just started this anime, oh my four episodes in and it already touched my heart and stabbed it with feels. hopefully ill manage to pick pace till sunday.
I just know Yui will come back and save the day, somehow that's why I didn't really feel sad about it, she's more or less bound to come back. Hopefully she won't be used as a cheap plot device =/

but that's just me~
and I'm not trying to convince anyone, just stating my opinion~ a fan who really loves the show won't change his opinion no matter what I or someone else says, nor can anyone say something that will make me totally love the show.
It seems Sword Art Online is up here and everything else is..
Waaaaaay down here.
If there was a Code Geass or a Bakemonogatari airing I would probably be more enthused about those but, as far as I can tell, there isn't.
Right now my typical weekly anime watching consists of a horrendous episode Eureka Seven:AO followed by a thoroughly enjoyable episode of SAO. So, to me, Sword Art Online is like an above average looking nice girl sitting next to the ugliest meanest girl in history of the universe (who doesn't bath regularly).
If you need a nice rec, don't be shy and ask me Jam
Oh I'm not reducing SAO's hype to that. Like you said it's really beautiful, you add that with the reasons I mentioned, it's enough to have quite a lot of fangasm, deserved or not.
The awesome setting and characters I've liked since second one are probably the reason. Plus Kirito being a non-whiny, rather-action-than-words, not overthinking strong character, Asuna being someone that seems like a tsundere (I like tsunderes and even more so with something that makes them more special) but when I think about it she's not really, she's pretty real to me. She's strong, but she has no tsunderish problems with admitting that she's in love, she has no problem showing her emotions. Overall cast was great minus Sachi and Cats for me, I just didn't like them. Romance is beautiful and even more so when it's a shounen!that actually features romance as its main point.
I've never said that every episode was epic, but I don't need every episode to be epic.
I found more episodes to be epic than in some other animes that are said to be gems thoughI rate overall enjoyment, and that I found here more than in 97% of anime I've watched.
