Again? Come on. Is every girl Kirito meets going to fall in love with him?
But no, “I caaaannn’ttt heeeeaaaaar yoooouuuu!!!!” Come on, seriously? Falling from the sky, a confession? This is just like Eureka Seven! Except they’re characters we know and care little about, they are probably going to die when they hit the ground, and they evade the confession with the oldest and lamest cop out in the book.
It doesn’t help that this girl just met Kirito a day ago. And why did she fall in love with him? Because he defeated a dragon and showed her a beautiful sunset. This is just insulting to everyone involved.
Furthermore, her greatest ambition is to become a stay-at-home wife. Although I guess this beats Asuna’s goal of a shared bank account. Sword Art Online’s idea of romance does not exactly lend itself to a compelling love triangle.
Of course, the show’s biggest problem is that Kirito has no personality whatsoever. The only thing that distinguishes him is that he has ridiculous powers for no apparent reason. And no, “beater” is not a personality trait. I envision Kirito as secretly looking down on every other person he meets. The way he gives his coy smile and treats everyone else like a child is infuriating. But apparently that passes for wisdom among MMO players since he can defeat a dragon single-handedly. As everyone knows, might makes right.
Look how high he can jump! It doesn’t even matter if the dragon is flying, Kirito can still kill it. At least if the silly womenfolk mending the shop stay out of the way.
Later on, Asuna appears and the new girl just gives up. Come on, did she have any motivation in the first place? I guess it’s a good thing that Kirito didn’t hear if she loves him this deeply.
