    this love story again?
    is there no end?

  2. george1234 Says:

    The novels are on volume 13 now, and this season will cover volumes 5 and 6 so, no, there’s no end 😉 Also this arc has no focus on love at all, so rejoice 🙂

  3. flint_KP Says:

    that was a rhetorical question :9
    since the first two arcs were already tainted with bad directing and bad use of music, how can we be sure this one will be better with or without the cheesy love story?

    We cant, there’s only hope.

  5. arqnohikari Says:

    ^ There’s still no news on who composes for it. but there’s possibility that Yuki Kajiura will do that one as well, since she has done Fate/Zero and KnK and Madoka and SAO, its all Aniplex XD

  11. george1234 Says:

    ^ No its official. The first music is “Fate to Zero” from FZ ost 2 and the second from the OST of the PS Vita FSN game.

    Hey everyone, I have been looking a specific song from SAO Season II. On episode 9 of the anime when Kirito is deflecting the bullets with his sword, there is a slightly different version of the SwordLand theme playing, I was hoping someone could give me hand in finding it.

    Thanks!!
