Re: Episode 14
Maybe it's because I've read the novels and knew what was coming, but I thought this episode was magnificent. It actually was as good as my imagination of what it should look like. Asuna... The last scene of Kirito was a perfect coda.
Yes, they managed to exceed the limits of the game, but then it's a complex game and they've managed things like that before. And of course there's Yui somewhere out there who shouldn't have existed so why not this?
As for the rest of the story, you'll have to wait for the next episode. Some are going to hate it for a number of reasons, but there is a logical explanation for the story to continue.
