Sword Art Online Alicization continues in episode 15 with Kirito and Eugeo climbing the tower. Only turns out they are just going to get dragged up to the 50th floor so two episodes after setting out they are half way to the top. Never mind, there's a sword fight to get to.
Books of fate, fairy tale characters, and chaos tellers combine in this less than thrilling adventure story.
A new opening, new outfits, same old story. Kirito and Eugeo recover their swords ridiculously easily but immediately find themselves locked in combat. It's an improvement from the exposition dumps but still not sure this hit the mark.
Gelmud reveals himself, the Orc Lord becomes a Demon Lord, and the fight really kicks off. There's no real doubt about how it will end but I guess the question is whether or not this was fun to watch?
And Release the Spyce comes to an end. I guess this is nice and full circle but it really isn't overly thrilling.
That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime Episode 12 Review - Rimuru's army are on the march and just in time because Gabiru's leadership of the lizardmen has landed them in some hot water.
Sword Art Online Alicization Episode 12 Review - Kirito and Eugeo fight the knight and then give him a weird headache of forgotten memories before they meet a sage in a library and Eugeo gets sent away for plot convenience. Then settle in for yet more exposition over cups of tea.
