SAO Alternative: Gun Gale Online ep7-8
Definite improvement now that we're back into the game, although I can't see my overall opinion of the show changing much from 'watchable, but very lightweight'. Part of me feels like there are better things I could be spending time on, but I don't dislike it enough to drop it so close to the end.
I forgot I was watching this one too, and am right at the same episode as you. I was actually liking it OK until this second game started, but now with 2 cutesy little characters on the same team, I can barely stomach it anymore. I was only watching this one to see if I wanted to keep going with adding Aniplex SAO LE releases to my collection with this series, and sadly I don't think so.
