This episode of Sword Art Online: Alicization can be summed up as: Eugeo is too good to be true, Quinella likes to be naked, and Chudelkin is driven by some sort of crazy boner power.
Japanese Original Episode Title: 三十二番目の騎士
Kirito starts fighting Eugeo and Alice is just observing them from the back without interfering. As they fight, Kirito tries to talk Eugeo out of it and make him snap out of his synthesized personality. Eugeo then manages to regain control of his mind, freezes both Alice and Kirito with the Blue Rose Sword, and heads up to kill Administrator. Pretending to be still under the influence of Quinella, he allows her to put him in a dazed state where she will remove the module and try to re-synthesize him but she fails. Eugeo attempts to pierce Quinella with the special dagger but she manages to defend herself. Chudelkin goes to inspect the other two below, but instead gets ambushed by Kirito and Alice and the two force their way up to Administrator’s room. Quinella tries to understand how Alice managed to snap out of her synthesis and orders Chudelkin to fight them, who turns out to be a skilled sacred arts user and summons a fire element monster resembling himself, which he calls the Genie.
Eugeo might be cooler than Kirito: Can this be? Will Eugeo best Kirito’s coolness in this season? Even Kirito mentions it in the beginning of their fight that ‘He always thought that he would surpass him one day’, but he also mentions that he has skills that he has never shown before so maybe it’s just a bluff. Nevertheless, the fact that he managed to snap out of the synthesis and tried to take down Quinella by himself instantly makes him more awesome.
Quinella, dear, put some clothes on: Okay Quinella, I understand that you have a very hot body and all but that doesn’t mean that you can go around naked all the time. I also get the fact that you don’t care about anything and you see everyone as mere peasants or animals that’s why you don’t even bother putting on clothes, but at least, if you want to be naked, don’t make your hair defy gravity in order to keep your modesty. Do it properly.
Chudelkin is the worst of the worst: He is by far the most annoying, aggravating, and gross character that we have seen in SAO. He is also a twisted perv and is not afraid to show it. He even says to Eugeo that if he doesn’t address him properly, he would turn him into a horse and would ride his back while screaming ‘Heee-ho!’ I have no words to describe him anymore honestly. He even begged for sex in this episode and after Quinella agreed with it he was overflowed with ‘supreme joy’ and fluids started running from his nose and eyes, symbolizing that he probably jeezed his pants as well. Thankfully, he just burned everything with his transformation.
Themes & Trivia
The opening changed: In case you didn’t notice, the scenes used in the opening of this episode changed and we have so much naked Quinella battling action as well as some outstanding shots of fights that are about to follow. You can check it out here.
Alright, Quinella aka the Administrator of the Underworld, basically has the power to control everything but when she was being intimate with Eugeo and synthesized him, she failed to notice that he actually carries an enhanced dagger that could kill her? I am sorry but even if I try to not look into the plot holes and mistakes of SAO in general this is just absurd to me.
I also laughed when Kirito and Alice stepped into the room and that Kirito had to climb his way up but Alice just used the elevator. Also, loved how Quinella let them catch up a little bit before they start fighting and I actually laughed out loud when they used the same scene of Kirito smiling twice in less than five seconds, instead of making him say something. I know my limits and I know that I am being mean but I couldn’t help myself.
Eternal love, eternal control.
So it’s safe to assume that Eugeo will be the one fighting Chudelkin since he has such a convenient advantage against him with his ice powers, Alice will fight another huge golden enemy (judging from the opening) and Kirito will fight the naked Quinella. Undoubtedly there will be a lot of great action in the episodes to follow.
