After Kirito dodged the bullet on bringing up Gun Gale Online in last week's episode of Sword Art Online, it was only natural to expect him to either hop in game and meet the mysterious sniper that concluded it or... well, y'know, tell his woman what he was going to do. Instead, we visit what I feel was the exact opposite of one of Sword Art Online's first season's largest problems: pacing. Both the Aincrad and ALO arc were crammed into the first season and the show moved through things in so quickly that I feel it seriously affected the show. In Gun Gale, it seems to take more than ten minutes to accomplish one thing: killing someone.
