An electrode!? Really?!
Anyway, now that that’s over, it seems Asada has gained some confidence.
I loved seeing her refuse to hand her money over, shoot a can, hand the gun back to the girl, and then say “bye.” That’s how you do it! Not to mention, it was a big step for her to go from being scared of just a thumb and index finger in the shape of a gun to actually shooting a real one. Then again, maybe it’s not so surprising, seeing as though video games can be used for military training purposes. Although, as we see, she’s not quite over it yet. So of course, Kirito to the rescue!
Can we just take a brief moment to realize that he mentions absolutely nothing about Asuna being his girlfriend? Like, the first thing you do when you introduce your girlfriend is to say that she’s your girlfriend.
So Asada discovers that even though she did kill one person, she also saved many. No, it doesn’t make up for that one person, and yes murder is still murder but I mean, come on. When a cute kid says “Thank you for saving me and my mom,” how can you not feel all warm and fuzzy inside?
Now hopefully Asada can move on…or can she? Zaza’s message for Kirito implied that there was still more to come. Is there something more fearful than Death Gun, or is he just a sore loser? Who knows.
