GoBoiano: "Sword Art Online II is set to be a 24 episode series, and that means we're just over half way through the sequel to one of 2012's biggest anime hits. Kirito is back to help solve a mystery within the popular online shooter Gun Gale Online (GGO). A mysterious man by the name "Death Gun" has appeared and he has the ability to seemingly kill people within the game, something that isn't supposed to be possible after the ending of the Aincrad arc in Sword Art Online. But is Sword Art Online II living up to the potential of earlier arcs found within the series, or has it fallen short in retrospect? Let's take a look at some of the highs and lows of the series' first half so far."
