Yup…Kayaba Akihiko is officially Ovan now (minus the enormous man crush). I dunno if they had to make Sugou quite as insane as he was…but I guess it’s the idea of comparing to Kayaba, who at least had an order to the madness (and possibly still has a master plan left). But seriously? Kirito went hardcore god mode for this fight (did anyone else notice that making Sugou level 1 isn’t exactly honorable for someone of his level?).
Now I have to be worried. There’s a full episode left and Asuna has been saved. What could possibly be happening in this final episode? Is it just a really long ending to the story or are they preparing for the cliffhanger ending? Surely they wouldn’t…right? There’s a lot left unresolved. What happens with the mind-altering research now? Are all of the captives free? Yup…definitely worried.
