Sword Art Online II – 06

「曠野の決闘」 (Kouya no Kettou)
“Duel In The Wastelands”

I’ll be honest, until the end of this week’s episode I just wasn’t feeling the SAO-vibe I was looking for from the first season. Luckily, a weird combination of things came together and reignited my passion for the show. Yes, I kind of understand why everyone loves Sinon so much now.
