Sword Art Online episode 5 discussion

Episode 4 discussion can be viewed here

With this episode we're led to believe player kills are impossible in safe areas. Can you commit suicide in a village? That one guy in episode 3 must have died in the safe zone unless under the bridge is not actually safe. So that's another exploit to the system since you probably indirectly kill. So dying from hanging, falling or stabbing yourself could be possible. Only the sword is a mystery so Kirito should have stabbed himself to help with the answer.

A mysterious player kill

I wonder if they faked their deaths. They saw someone die, but if there is some kind of substitute ability, it'll serve as a decoy when fighting monsters and the ability to fake deaths. This is easier for the first death but unlikely for the second. Why did she have to fall outside of the window? It would have been easier to fall inside to get help. I just hope she didn't fake her death and she's behind it.


I'm curious how she was killed in her room. I'd expect some kind of protection from the outside to keep out players. especially the windows when they are linked to the outside. A simple barrier should avoid sleep pks and the spear throwing ability.

The dude in episode 3 actually jumped off the ledge of the Aincrad Tower, so he's basically falling off into the cyber sea of void, which isn't exactly considered a safe zone. The anime never properly shown us how a lot of the initial 2000 deaths are the results of suicide and more importantly, how to commit suicide. Just to clear up some confusion.

It's not supposed to be possible to die in a safe zone by stabbing yourself, falling, or hanging... until this episode's incident.

They need to be worried about sleep kidnapper too. I would...not be in my own mind in front of a sleeping Asuna...*_*

That explains why he was so focused on the duel win idea and why stabbing himself would show some insight.

Yeah, there are so many worse things than dying. Being kidnapped will mean trapped in the world.

I just watched this series and not read the novel at all. It turned out this series's very interesting.

Asuna looks cute when sleeping >3<

@ShizuoCell P
I haven't read the novels either, but I loved this series since episode 1.

Asuna is very cute when sleeping.
