Finally we got more information on the year-end SAO episode airing on December 31st in Japan.
SAO was the only anime that did not have a beach or pool episode. So guess what? Now it’s getting its pool episode just like any anime that’s ever created. So long story short, Kirito finds out that Sugu/Leafa cannot swim. Thus, Asuna and her friends are going to teach her how to swim at a real life pool. Meanwhile, Kirito meets a certain someone.
Yeah, sure all the girls in swimsuit will be nice. Honestly, I’m not really surprised. I just had a feeling that SAO’s Extra Edition will be a beach or pool episode. Why? Well… abec didn’t draw all the girls in swimsuit for nothing? Speaking of which, I pre-ordered the last magazine that comes with the poster of Sinon and Kirito. I can’t wait to get it in the mail! But this is not why I’m so excited for this announcement. Let’s focus on something MORE important.
"Meanwhile, around the same time, Kirito meets a certain someone."
"Kirito meets a certain someone."
I am hoping for some short of cameo for Sinon/Asada Shino. abec included her swimsuit design in the posters. I’d like to think that this is not just coincidence. But of course, I don’t have any other proof other than abec’s illustrations and this quote from the synopsis. However, I’m hoping for some short of appearance. If Sinon ever appears then we can be 100% sure that season 2 will be on its way sooner or later. The arc Phantom Bullet that happens in Gun Gale Online is one of my favourite arcs so far. It has a lot of actions and doesn’t have time skips that so many of you disliked. Above all, Sinon in animation. A moving Sinon. A talking Sinon (most likely with Sawashiro Miyuki’s voice since she’s the one that voiced Sinon in both PSP game and Drama CD).
If things really do turn out the way I expect them… Then… I… I… I’M GOING OUT FOR A RUN!!! KYAAAAHHH!!!
