Sword Art Online Alicization Episode 18 Review - The focus this week is tightly on Eugeo facing the leader of the integrity knights (and former village legend) alone. This is the first time we've seen Eugeo on his own without Kirito's guidance, and he's up against a tough opponent. it's a fairly great character moment for the Eugeo as we see his choices this far up the tower.
While we aren't quite half-way through the Winter anime season, I'm just taking a moment to take stock, look at my watch list, and I'm trying to predict which of the shows I'm watching will actually hold out until the end of the season to be my favourite. In the meantime, I'd love to know what you are watching, what you've dropped, what you think will be anime of the season, and what you think is going to fall apart.
Sword Art Online Alicization Episode 17 Review - Kirito and Alice are clinging on for dear life outside the tower and they've got a choice of climbing up or falling down. Can they make a truce long enough to get back into the tower? And what is going on with Eugeo?
Sword Art Online Episode 16 Review: Not sure the build up was worth it but we finish the fight with the knights on the 50th floor and then ride an elevator up to floor 80 (why are there 100 floors again). Still, we've got more battles to go and this one is going to prove to be tough.
Last week we counted down the female characters that I liked in 2018, and this week we have my favourite male characters. There probably won't be a surprise at number one, but I'd love to know who you liked last year.
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.
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.
