Proving that more is not always better. There be spoilers below. I remember back when Sword Art Online had just begun.

I remember rapidly skipping … Continue reading Sword Art Online Alicization Series Review
Now that the Winter season is mostly over, this is where the anime ended up on my list. The Reader's Poll results will be announced later today.

Sword Art Online Alicization Episode 21 Review - Kirito vs Eugeo though I don't think the sword fight matters all that much in this instance.
Sword Art Online Alicization Episode 20 Review - Alice and Kirito finally make it back inside the tower but now they need to find out what happened to Eugeo. Turns out, nothing good.
