It was bad enough to see how Nobuyuki was so weak in the previous episode, there's no difference in this episode. I wish he had at least tried to kill Kirito properly. His right eye and depth perception screws up his attacks, but he had more than enough chances to deal a final blow. The first attack with the element of surprise especially could have been fatal if Nobuyuki wasn't bent on revenge. And of course, Kirito should have killed him. He had already brutally wounded him in ALO so hurting him in real life would be along the same lines.
The series ended well by allowing normal people create their own games using the seed. It leaves it open for another season which I know there are light novels left to animate. I did enjoy ALO, but it would have been far better if the series had ended when SAO had finished. SAO always had that, if you die in the game, you die in real life. ALO only had Kirito rushing to save Asuna. Comparing both parts, ALO caused me to lower my score.
