Since the new season of Sword Art Online is underway I decided to make a GGO design!
It’s styled like my athletics shirts without it actually being an athletics shirt. It’s also available on phone cases, tote bags, throw pillows, and more!!
SAO II (Gun Gale Online) has already started coming out! There are lots of places it is streaming, including Crunchroll and Hulu if you live in the US. It shouldn’t be hard to find.
Why, are you looking to make a purchase?

After playing the TV Size of Ignite for the 30th time I thought I’d have a bash at translating it. Here’s the result. If anyone has any suggestions please flick them my way, I’m new at translating lyrics!
Aoi Eir - Ignite
This world of contradiction
by my hand will be fired away
In the warmth of tears that have been shed
I thought I knew what kindness was
Why is it that we must we hurt each other
When it’ll just give birth to hatred, I know
A jarring pain that’s given me
a strength that I know so well
That I’m sure will one day cover the future with it’s warmth I know
I won’t hesitate to will blow away this world full of contradiction
That sorrow hidden behind those red tears you’ve shed
Hold it close and embrace it gently
For they hold the hope that we
may one day change your echos in to a new beginning

“i didn’t like how almost every girl kirito interacted with, fell in love with him. even his sister/cousin, i mean seriously.”
The first season already has an english dub. If you mean season 2, I didn’t read any sort of information regarding the dub work. Considering SAOII didn’t even air yet, I doubt we’ll be getting any information if, let alone when it will be released.

Non-premium members of Crunchyroll will be able to watch SAO II on their website from July 12th on. Of course, there will be many other places to watch the new episode from tomorrow on already. According to the official Sword Art Online USA website, other than CR, it’ll be available on Daisuki and Hulu (even though I heard that is only available for american users). This post by sao2countdown also tells other websites you might get to watch it on tomorrow. The moment I know of a place to watch it, I’ll be sure to post it. If anyone knows of other websites, please, let me know! I hope everyone gets to watch the episode as soon as they can to avoid any unwanted spoilers!

Good question! I’m not sure myself, but I always assumed they were robins.
But that’s mostly a wild guess really, since I don’t know about japanese birds or went to any sort of bird college. If anyone actually knows what kind of birds they are, let us know!

Fil has been singlehandedly running the blog for awhile (whoops!), so I totally missed this, but those aren’t robins! They sort of resemble American robins, but those are mostly confined to North America. Japanese robins look quite different. According to my online degree from bird colleges which are colleges for birds, and also light googling, I think they are Daurian redstarts (jōbitaki). It’s a very common bird in East Asia.
Since the female and the male of the species are very noticeably sexually dimorphic, that means both of those birds are male. I think we found SAO’s long-sought-after canon yaoi.
Also, hey, SAO II. Birds.

“When I first saw him, Klein reminded me a lot of Leon Kuwata from Dangan Ronpa: spiky red hair, laid back and punkish attitude, and general interest in women are things they both have in common.”

“I recently started rewatching SAO, because my sister refuses to watch anime alone. We’ve finally begun the ALO arc, and I have to pretend to hate Sugou a lot more than I do. Sure, the guy’s evil and I don’t like him (especially after what he did to Asuna) but I can’t help kind of understanding him and his motivations.”
