Hmm? I don't find much wrong with discussing the episode a bit We will have plenty of time to discuss topics when the anime ends yes hold back your tears wait too late ;__;
I condensed your topic so it fit in the CSS. I was just talking about this today with Olli and Tsuitc. xD;
How far would you go to protect someone that you met in a virtual world, whether it be a good friend or a love interest?
If I was in Kirito's position (i.e. awesomely good at SAO), then yes, I'd do my best to save my friend or crush. I would just find it natural to smash anyone who threatens those precious to me. If I was like, level 10 most of the time, then nope, plz don't hurt me. ):< Does that make sense?
