GGO is not over yet, there is still one last part left..
15 -> 24 = 10 episodes.

And Mother's Rosario is only 1 volume, so that should be enough. In fact, right now I'm afraid they may be too slow with the pacing.

In other news, looks like Mother's Rosario is actually confirmed, by virtue of the merchandising.

GGO Ep.13Show
This episode totally ruined the whole arc for me, I knew since the beginning that Kirito was going to defeat Death Gun, but what I was expecting the most was Sinon destroying Kirito, not exploiting with him in such way.

I'm aware. That's why I said 10 episodes instead of 11.

My memory of Phantom Bullet is a little hazy, but I was pretty sure the epilogue included a Shino welcoming party as well as revealing Kazuto and Asuna's relationship to her. I was actually looking forward to how Shino would react to that.

Or was that the prologue to a different arc?

II Episode 14Show
Ha. Take that, Shinkawa. Such a creepy shit you are. Shino throwing that radio at him was amazing.

SINON MY PRECIOUS BBY YOU'VE GOTTEN ALL YOU'VE NEEDED. YEESSSSS. Her dealing with the gun like that and making that bitchy trio faint and fear her like that was so beautiful. You go girl. Also her meeting the post office woman and her daughter was so adorable. That moment where she revealed that their lives were saved thanks to her made me tear up quite a bit, but thE DRAWING THAT THE DAUGHTER MADE FOR HER JUST HAD ME CRYING QPROIWHFODV SHINOOOOO ;__________;

Man, I can't wait for the next episode. Shino will probably confront Shinkawa, but I hope we get to see her welcome party and ALO avatar then! Also I wonder why Kirito didn't even tell Sinon that Asuna was his girlfriend. Maybe he'll do that in the next episode as well?

Kazuto is lucky to have that protection.
It seems that Shino fails to know his relationship with Asuna.

Chapter end.

I don't know how I missed this.
Excuse the language.
Fuck you A-1 Pictures
I'm done. These people are idiots.

3 episodes is probably good given the length of Caliber, but 7 episodes for MR? Eh... A-1 Pictures has not once successfully adapted any SAO novel into 6-8 episodes.

Caliber Episode 1Show
As expected, they rushed the hell out of this episode. The integration of the Jotenheimr arc as a flashback is not a bad idea, but in this case it was terribly executed. The flashback explains nothing to those who did not read Fairy Dance II but rather raises more questions.

Caliber episode 1Show
Honestly, I enjoyed a lot of things in this episode. The opening was amazing and brought back the crew's SAO, ALO, and GGO selves from previous arcs in the series and the song was pretty nice too. Then there's Tonkii, Sinon's ALO avatar, the seven guys working together as a super awesome RP fighting team..... It's so beautiful. And the light-hearted interactions were cute, like Klein and Lisbeth's little banter and Kirito grabbing Sinon's tail like that. It's also pretty funny how she and Silica can connect pretty well being Cait Siths and all, heh. Iunno, I guess I really liked this episode since it sorta gave the main cast a break from all the shit happening from the GGO? Really excited for the next episode, though.

this is going to be a disaster if they really force it into 24 episodes
I mean: it took KyoAni's 28 episodes + 1 movie to adapt 7 Haruhi LN (7 or 6? I don't remember)
ignoring 7 of the Endless 8 and Mikuru's movie, means 20 episodes + 1 movie
Haruhi is a bit fast paced and a bit short in length compared to PA
(ignore the animation quality, that's a different story)
Well, at least I can enjoy this for a whileShow

At least they don't disappoint when it comes to action animation. Episode 16: fairly engaging.

Caliber episode 2Show
God, their teamwork in this is amazing. It's pretty awesome how all the party members attack with their weapons and magic. And I like how Klein was willing to save Freyja like that(even though it's probably 'cause he likes her and all that stuff).
SpoilerShow
Too bad Freyja's actually a guy though...

No attacking mages, but they have elemental blades. And Asuna knows the timing to go berserk.
The NPC knows increasing Max HP. It must be something uncommon.
