I want this. I’m a huge fan of the anime and I’m really excited that this is coming. I may pre-order.

I loved the anime too.

Though I can’t recall Gun Gale at all right now.
I will hold off - not played the previous titles so I don’t have any pre-established faith to rely on.

Was the second season. When he had to go back in and track someone to find a killer. I couldn’t stop watching.

The only thing I need to know that it’s coming, And it’s an rpg


Yeah, I remember the first place they went in 2nd season (forget its name too, but they had wings) but I don’t remember anywhere called Gun Gale… unless that’s one and the same?

I have high hopes.
Suppose I could always cancel preorder…

Well there was a second part to Sword Art. Then the next season came called Gun Gale, which was a new game

Cel-Shaded graphics? I’m not sure I can play this game. That style fucks me up bad, not sure why. Borderlands and Wildlands both gave me nasty headaches while playing.

Oh fuck me, I never saw SAO II - I just thought I had after watching the second half of SAO!

Awesome. Whole series to enjoy.
