Heroes of Aincrad by ghostfire Heroes of Aincrad by ghostfire
Sword Art Online... so good. I just finished what was currently released through Crunchyroll a few days ago, but I started this not long after I began watching the series. It's refreshing to see a male and female lead on such equal footing, without over the top tsundere or resigned damsel in distress syndromes knocking their relationship off balance. Both Kirito and Asuna are very sympathetic characters.

Kirito looks cool but I'm just not too fond of Asuna's face.

This reminds me of marketing MegaMan for Westerners. For some reason, hope they use this as a box art 3:)

I personally find realism adaptations of existing anime arts a bit heart-wrenching, in a way that their moe features are taken out in favor of near-realistic values. Great, Asuna looked a bit American here. The lighting fits well for a dungeon they're in by the way.

This is fantastic! :O I've really enjoyed SAO. I haven't finished the second season yet, though.

This looks great, but I have to disagree with you, SAO is pretty damn bad imo.

It is Sword Art Online, yes, but I have no idea what your second sentence means.

The original Chinese electric batman refers to the character in "Darker Than Black" and the fact that it is a chinese anime, his powers, and character type.
