SAO: Aftermath Chapter 3: Exposed, a sword art online/ソードアート・オンライン fanfic | FanFiction
Kirito establishes a small relationship with her at the beginning but the main impression given about Asuna within the first few episodes is a. SAO Progressive V4 analysis** Welcome to my second SAO Progressive analysis of Kirito and Asuna's relationship. This will contain spoilers. Asuna is Kirito's partner and main love interest in the series. Among all the people Kirito has met, she is the closest and dearest to him. Originally the two of them.
He keeps to himself and doesn't bother anyone. His character level and skill levels are more than enough to let others know he is not one to be trifled with. While a good person at heart, Kirito doesn't care for attachment, a trait he had before entering the game. Many relationships he creates are for personal gain.
He lives to strengthen himself in the game for survival. Bad Things About Kirito Overpowered: Anyone who sees this show will understand this immediately. His skill progresses faster than any other character in the game and he is also granted unbelievable power for seemingly no reason at all.
There is no montage scene or try-and-fail syndrome. Kirito is simply always fantastic in everything he does. He never fails, he never falls, and there's no real evidence as to how he got that way. The timeline in the game should've progressed slower but it almost seems as if the writers were in a rush to finish. In The Matrix, Neo faces some severe obstacles on learning how to maintain and control his power.
Yes, he learned kung-fu in a ridiculously short period of time. However, he still hadn't mastered the art and he failed when everyone thought he might succeed.
This is supposed to be a relatable hero, one that we believe could exist. Kirito achieving this amount of power almost immediately is unrealistic. This perhaps shouldn't bug me as much as it does but I believe it is worth mentioning.
Kirito is an immensely enjoyable character and this isn't necessarily anything against him. However, the effect he has on the women of SAO is slightly laughable. There are a few that make sense and are believable. Then there are others that pop up out of nowhere. Kirito doesn't necessarily flirt with any of these women nor is he particularly nice to them in any way. And yet all of them seem to fall for him simply because he is the main character and the writers want all those lovely love interests.
This includes his younger stepsister who has a crush on him in the real world as well as unknowingly falls for his avatar in another virtual game.
Many girls seem to fall in love with him in less than ten seconds for no apparent reason at all.ASMV Kirito X Asuna Catch The Moment Sword Art Online
Throughout the beginning of the first season, Kirito explains to more than a few characters or simply anyone he comes across that he is a solo player and doesn't want or need help from anyone. He will defeat this game on his own and there's nothing anyone else can do to suggest otherwise. There is a female named Asuna that is known to be on his same level.
She's just as powerful as him but, unlike Kirito, she is the leader of the strongest guild in SAO and believes in working as a team. Of course, we knew all along that this would be the main love interest of SAO.

Kirito is easily persuaded by Asuna to form a team in less than three episodes after strongly exclaiming he was a solo player. I almost stopped watching at this point because of the poorly drawn out character development. While I understand that the endgame was for Kirito to eventually abandon his solo status, the intensity of how quickly it happened made it very unbelievable and way out of character.
She is completely new to the gaming world and is first revealed in a large maroon coat, her face and gear completely concealed.
Kirito establishes a small relationship with her at the beginning but the main impression given about Asuna within the first few episodes is a mystery. Viewers know she's going to be a viable and powerful character and are excited at the possibility of a strong, female gamer.
Unfortunately, that is not what is given. At first, Asuna does have those qualities. She's a no-nonsense, shoot first-type of leader and climbs her way to the top of the most powerful guild in the game. This is thanks to the pep talk from Kirito in the second episode. However, her character completely dissolves as she gets closer to Kiriro. The tough general becomes a soft, giddy housewife. It is emphasized throughout the show that Asuna cooks and maintains a very clean, housewife-worthy home.
Her entire world now revolves around Kirito. Like the protagonist, there is very little character development or explanation of how Asuna came to be this way or why her priorities change so suddenly. The anime quickly turned into something that I wasn't at all expecting as many less-than-subtle and humorous clues for a budding romance occurred throughout the series.
Events such as Kirito accidentally grasping Asuna's boob and a scene where he asks her to stay with him for the night; Asuna immediately assumes he wants to have sex. As a female, I wasn't necessarily offended by this but the idea that a strong female character would drop everything, including her priorities and personality, for a man seemed to be way out of character. Even Sergeant Calhoun from Wreck-It Ralph had better character development and she had less than two hours to establish it.
The main villain in the first story arc, the man who created the game, was decent in a sense that he is never actually present throughout the majority of the game. He appears at the very end, of course, and has very little dialogue. In the end, Kirito asks him why he did what he did and he says that simply doesn't know anymore which is an intriguing look at his character.
It is not often that that villains are left with ambiguous motives. In the end, I found it more entertaining than the average villainous response which would have been something like "I just like to watch the world burn" or a variation of that phrase. Once the game was beaten and the characters returned to their normal lives, the show took a turn for the worse as the main hook of the premise is gone before the first season ended.
It was too abrupt They bypassed two full years of gameplay in less than 15 episodes. The second villain that appeared was honestly pretty appalling. His entire motive was to create another "save the damsel in distress" moment for himself.
There is an implication that he planned to rape Asuna, which was thoroughly disgusting. Her calling out for Kirito to save her was the point where I stopped watching the show.
I couldn't tell you where the plot proceeded beyond that point. The plot was paced horribly and the introduction of even more virtual reality games was a bit excessive. The first game, Sword Art Online, should've continued well throughout the first season and into the second.
It made sense, in an unsettling sort of way. The less there was below the belt to start with, the less chance there was that some hotshot hacker could smash the game's rating to pieces with a meter-long attempt at over-compensation. So, the newlywed couple did the best they could.

Three of Asuna's fingers were in Kirito's mouth, and he sucked them for all he was worth. Her other hand was occupied with nipples, thank god he still had those Asuna said once none the girls' avatars had any.
Kirito's own hands were wrapped around her backside, kneading the perfect rear that her skimpy underwear—thank you, extremely sexist character designers—left mostly bare. Today's sex is good sex, Kirito thought hazily as Asuna ground her disappointingly not-anatomically-correct pelvis against his.
He wasn't sure which mechanism in their brains let them turn a purely virtual exercise into a physical orgasm with the accompanying rush of hormones and neuro-chemicalsbut he knew from experience it didn't work all the time.
Sometimes only Asuna got off. Sometimes only he did. Sometimes—and not for lack of trying— neither of them did. Their first time they had attempted to consummate their marriage had been particularly memorable. They had lain together for hours and hours, and Asuna had come five times, all while Kirito wrestled with the horrifying idea that he just might be sixteen years old and impotent.

But today was not like that. Not like that at all, definitely, definitely not, Kirito thought as Asuna made a sound low in her throat. She yanked her fingers from Kirito's mouth, fisted her hand in his hair instead, and pulled. Kirito wasn't one for pain, but his digital body was starved for sensation and it was something, anything— Anything— And there it was.
A flash of white. A mind-melting pulse of energy throughout every fiber optic? A crackle of static and a mysterious, angry beep like his NerveGear headset rebooting— Which, maybe it actually was. Kirito had once speculated that they might be able to escape the game if they crashed their hardware by having enough sex, but Asuna had only blushed and stammered and smacked him in the face with a pillow— And then it was all over.
Asuna rolled off him and onto the rumpled bedsheets, and two of them just lay there in silence, staring up at the lazily-twirling ceiling fan. There wasn't any warm, fuzzy afterglow. No feeling of release in his avatar's muscles. Kirito felt exactly the same as he had earlier that evening hungry—for food—they hadn't eaten dinner yet before Asuna had beckoned him to bed with the lacey flutter of her skirt.
And, er, there weren't any bodily fluids, either. That hadn't been much of a surprise the first time, considering biological processes in general didn't exist in SAO.
