Well, Death Gun’s avatar name was revealed by Asuna…was I supposed to draw something from that other than the relation to death? I feel like I was supposed to get something from his character name. Also, what role will Sinon play in this standoff between Kirito and Death Gun? Her gun’s scope was destroyed, but it should still be able to shoot from close range. Or will she not risk getting close enough to Death Gun to be shot?
It looks like this week’s episode isn’t quite the end of this arc. Next week should wrap everything up with the final battle with Death Gun and whatnot. There was a moment in this week’s episode where Death Gun mentioned that Kirito “wasn’t quite there” with his explanation of Death Gun’s mechanism. So was Kirito missing something? If so, how big is his blind spot?
