A year after escaping Sword Art Online, Kazuto Kirigaya has been settling back into the real world. However, his peace is short-lived as a new incident occurs in a game called Gun Gale Online, where a player by the name of Death Gun appears to be killing people in the real world by shooting them in-game. Approached by officials to assist in investigating the murders, Kazuto assumes his persona of Kirito once again and logs into Gun Gale Online, intent on stopping the killer.
Once inside, Kirito meets Sinon, a highly skilled sniper afflicted by a traumatic past. She is soon dragged in his chase after Death Gun, and together they enter the Bullet of Bullets, a tournament where their target is sure to appear. Uncertain of Death Gun’s real powers, Kirito and Sinon race to stop him before he has the chance to claim another life. Not everything goes smoothly, however, as scars from the past impede their progress. In a high-stakes game where the next victim could easily be one of them, Kirito puts his life on the line in the virtual world once more.

I liked season two better purely because I found the world of gungale more interesting than the previous worlds. Even though it had its own problems the action and Shinon’s backstory was interesting enough that I could put up with it.
Then the last arc sucked so badly. It introduced five terrible characters, I’m sure I don’t have to tell you by now that they were insanely boring, and made you think you cared about them because they all died. The ending might be sad, but it honestly feels like cry bait and comes across in such a scummy way that I can’t like the show.
