The plot thickens and the cast gets larger as we get to know the minds behind the Vers Empire. While the latest episode serves as a brief respite from the tireless slaughter being dished out by Martians, things seem to be turning for the worse.

When last we left Stardust Crusaders, a hostage situation was afoot. Steely Dan and his Stand, The Lovers, held poor old Joseph's brain hostage, with Jotaro turned into a 7-foot-tall punching bag, stripped of the ability to return the favor.

It may have taken SAO II's story a bit to get this far, but it’s finally time for A-1 to animate Kirito’s Gun Gale Online debut.

Sword Art Online II sure loves to take its sweet time with presenting its story to the audience. In all seriousness, SAO II’s pacing isn’t a bad thing, as it gives us some time to soak in certain aspects that the anime presents to us. Since we were introduced to Sinon’s character last time, the show's ready to introduce us to her true self.

Just like Sinon’s previous segment, this episode will be the one that’ll seal everyone’s opinion on the character once and for all. That being said, it’s time to find out if Sword Art Online II’s heroine has what it takes to maintain the show’s foundation.
