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.

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.

Tuesday's Top 5 and this week we are counting down the Top 5 hero characters from 2018. There's a few criteria as normal and to prevent this from becoming a My Hero Academia list, only one character from each show could take a spot on the official list.

Why More Time Isn’t Helping This Story

Sword Art Online Alicization Episode Review Title Image

Sword Art Online Episode 11 Review: With bloated conversations pushing us toward a cliff-hanger ending, this is another fairly weak entry into Alicization. Part of me is thinking that the long episode count is not doing this anime any favours as it stretches out content far too long rather than diving into its point.

Sword Art Online Alicization Episode 9 Review: They may not be Elite Disciples but their humble background continues to make them the target of other's wrath. This week we see Eugeo stepping up to the plate as he confronts who he is and who he wants to be.
