It's not that it's bad (though fight scene with Eiji and Yuuna in previous ep was better) but imho it's relying too much on Kirito and Kirito only. Making all secondary characters useless even with god accounts while they were important in 1st arc. I wouldn't want it to end with a Bleach like taste.
bro i dont think they portrayed any of character useless for e.g. asuna previous fight before waking up of kirito was better than kirito's and also they need to make a situation for waking up of kirito.
Of course he's the MC and as such he's bound to beat the final boss. The problem here is it's not only the final boss but every little pebble on the way (even though Asuna would have beaten PoH if he didn't get a plot armor). Having secondary chars solving secondary problems give them some significance
they cut kirito asuna kiss scene? srlsy gonna try make us forget they are dating or something? its harsh to make Asuna feelings have the same value as his incest lover sister and 2 other friends, without to say that they trynna shio him with Alice, now ya gonna start cutting the only moments we have where we can happily ship the ACTUAL FUCKING COUPLE. ffs the only good shit I can get out of SAO romantic part is just that at least they didnt make us wait fucking ages to get one ship confirmed
