  • Sinon


  • Laith Rem

    …crap this is best arc stuff. Please don’t ruin it, please don’t ruin it.

  • Kornelious

    Yet another heroine to romance? Heck yes :)

  • Raltrios

    Yay! I really liked her as a character.
    Shame about what happens to her :(

    • DarkLight

      …..what happens to her?

      • natchu96

        Read Sword Art Online: Mother’s Rosario and find out yourself, it’s pretty spoilerific.

        One must experience the feels firsthand to get the full package out of Mother’s Rosario.

      • Raltrios

        What natchu96 said. It’s better to read it for yourself. That said, I could easily spoil it in a single word, but I suspect other people in the comments wouldn’t appreciate me doing so.

  • DyLaN

    Scan of Hollow Fragment Yuuki (and most likely SAO II as well if it going to cover it).

    > So Sinon and Leafa got some redesign of their outfit but Yuuki didn’t. Not that I dislike Yuuki original outfit though.

    > So….. Yuuki arrival to SAO will be same/similar with how Sinon came to SAO?

    • natchu96

      So she’s still an imp even in Aincrad eh?

      . . . wait, if she’s here then the system must be broken, because Kirito would not have the Dual Blades skill to begin with . . .

  • Yan Zhao

    Why do all the Vita games I want get no english release :<

    • Well, this one is getting an english release, just no american release.

      • God

        We don’t even know how much english is there gonna be in it.

      • Yan Zhao

        THey only confirmed subtitles during cutscenes, not the rest of the game’s dialogues. I wouldnt care as much if it was the latter, I’d just import. But I’ll be shafted from all DLCs due to the Vita’s really stupid PSN account being tied to your memory card.

  • David García Abril

    Wasn’t Yuuki the only lead female character in the series that has NOT any attachments to Kirito whatsoever?

    From what I heard, she’s rather Asuna’s BFF.

    Oh, well. I guess that if Kirito can score even Klein, nothing is stopping him to score this girl too. Poor Asuna…

    • [spoiler]
      yeah she was more associated with Asuna in the Rosario arc. The only role Kirito had with her was that he provided the equipment to allow Yuuki to participate at school for a little while with a camera Kiroto was developing.

      I do hope they don’t reduce her to Kirito’s waifu because she is one of the few good characters in the series :/

    • natchu96

      It’s more of a side effect of Asuna being the main protagonist of Mother’s Rosario instead of Kirito.

      Kirito at best got to show off his highschool-level electronic engineering skills (I mean why the hell do they teach that stuff in that school?!?) with a neurolinker-linked shoulder camera . . . and really that’s it.

      Oh right, his other job was to lose to Yuuki off screen.

      • David García Abril

        Ah, yeah! I heard about that too.

        Kirito… (HUGE gasp) LOOSES! (on-screen, off-screen… It doesn’t really matter)


        Anyway, the point is, making Kirito to cheat on Asuna with the other girls (and guys!) was already bad enough. But cheating on her with her best friend?

        That’s just cruel! :P

        • natchu96

          Granted he only used one sword instead of two. He probably wanted a fair fight to see what she’s got, especially since his second sword at that point was way more OP than his main-hand sword.

          Though that fuels his deduction that “Her reaction time definitely isn’t this good because she’s an SAO survivor like us”.

          The Cardinal System in Aincrad was set to give the Dual Blades ability to whoever on the server had the fastest brain-interface response time, so if Yuuki was in Aincrad Kirito won’t have his mad skillz. Because Kirito determined from his loss that his reaction time is actually inferior to Yuuki’s.

          So yes, for the duration of Mother’s Rosario Kirito is not the most OP. Theoretically.

          You sound like you haven’t read Mother’s Rosario. Do it, it’s one heartwarming volume! The feels.

          • SleepingLeon

            after GGO then mother’s rosario more on Asuna’s part/focus that feels

          • David García Abril

            True, I haven’t read “Mother’s Rosario”.

            Actually, I’ve only read the first LN. I’m considering reading the GGO arc before the second season of the anime comes out, though.

          • XenoJin

            Also, not to mention, one of the main reason Yuuki had faster reaction time was she practically spent majority of her time connected to the Medicuboid. This means 1. She had more “experience” than Kirito in terms of in-game time, and 2. the Medicuboid interface is is “better” than the NerveGear and AmuSphere, thus possibly granting her faster response time.

            The Mother’s Rosario arc is awesome, I cried reading it T.T

    • xXDGFXx

      She was Asuna’s BFF. She was one of the main characters of the best arc of the LN.

  • Can’t wait till May for the English subbed version

  • natchu96

    What I want to know is if they will make her explicitly OP in this game. Just to be true to character.

  • Aha Disco Elf

    eugeo wher? nid more bromance

    or at least some sort of colosseum battle against full armor eugeo

  • Original Sayin Prince

    May 29th version here I come

  • Yatol Charles

    i see her more as someone that will Kazuto try to surpass not a potentiale gf.

    i wonder if they allow her to avoid her fate (i’m not spoiling anything but dem feels)
