“T......Thank you.”

As I said thanks, I held out my hands to receive it —— but the sword was pulled back.

“Before that, promise me one thing.”

Then the blue haired Cait Sith gave a bright smile, it was without a doubt the highest class in ALO —— although with a destructive power equal to ten plasma grenades hidden in it.

“——Every time you pull this sword out, make sure you always think of me, alright?”


During the suddenly frozen atmosphere, the golden holy sword «Excaliber» moved from Sinon’s hands to mine. But it was unbelievable, I couldn’t feel its weight at all, instead I felt an imaginary chill and sweat flowing down my back.

“O―o, it’s sure difficult for you, popular-bro.”

From right behind me, Klein said so without reading the
atmosphere, I stepped on his foot to make him silent, then said in the calmest voice I could muster, “......Yeah, I’ll keep that in mind, you have my thanks. Thank you, that shot just now was magnificent.”

“You’re welcome.”

Sinon delivered the final blow with her wink, then turned around and moved in the direction of Tonkii’s tail. She then took a stem of mint from the quiver on the right of her waist and held it in her mouth, it seemed to be her way of a quick rest. It was a cool action suiting the live wire sniper, however, I didn’t miss noticing that the tip of her bluetail was wriggling.

That was the sign saying she was in laughter.

I’ve been had! As I groaned inside my mind, there was nothing I could do about the stabbing glances from the group of girls around me.

Who's the blue haired Cait Sith?

That's Sinon / Asada Shino. She's the lead female character in the LN arc "Gun Gale Online"...after that arc, she returned as an Cait Sith ALO player in Mother's Rosario. She's an archer. ^^

That's Sinon. She appeared in the Phantom Bullet Arc of the light novels. That's around volume 5.

Oh ok.
This has to be my favorite moment in this scene, I kept laughing at this for a while knowing that Kirito will be dealing with all the girls that he knows, keep up the Awesome work. :D
I believe it is Asuna next to Lisbeth not Lyfa. And I don't think Excaliber has that much silver in it. Watch episode 24 of SAO.

This was done/colored (on December 4, 2012) before the 24th episode of SAO was released so I had no idea what the color of the Excaliber is, just based on the Gold-description on the Light Novel and artworks of the Holy Sword Excalibur I found on Google, and about the silver, I had no idea how to bring out the shininess of the sword so I had to improvise.

About Leafa/Asuna, I won't be arguing about that because what you said maybe true too, but the situation on the light novel it appeared that Asuna didn't display much displease with circumstances like this, and I "think" Leafa suits being jealous more. These are merely my own interpretations though.
