What You Need to Know:
- Not everything in anime is full of magical worlds and perverted main protagonists (though they are in fact very funny), there are certainly some moments in anime that are shocking for fans who tune in. Sword Art Online has always been an anime filled with surprises and in this one particular scene, the main lead Kirito finds himself in a very unfortunate circumstance.
- Kirito and Asuna were called by Shinon and asked by her to join the battle of the "Bullet of Bullets 5" in Gun Gail Online in order to beat Satlizer (the first and fourth winner of Bullet of Bullets). After their meeting, Kirito and Asuna were on their way home. Then suddenly, Atsushi Kanemoto, who survived Sword Art Online and used to be a member of the player-killing guild "Laffin Coffin", talks to them and asks Asuna to tell him the way, while hiding his true identity.
- Kirito stopped Asuna, who honestly tries to tell him the way, and hides her behind his back because he realizes that Kanemoto has been following them. Kirito reveals Kanemoto's true identity, and at that moment Kanemoto attacks Kirito with a syringe which contains an extremly potent and deadly muscle-relaxant made from suxamethonium chloride. Kirito faces Kanemoto with an umbrella and sticks Kanemoto's leg. However Kanemoto succeeds in hitting the injection in Kirito, which causes a severe heart attack and was sent for a hospital. Pretty deadly indeed if you ask me and one of the more impactful moments of the anime. We didn't want to spoil too much and so we highly encourage you to watch the show to really see how everything went down, and whether or not Kirito was able to recoup after the events!
That was a pretty scary moment I imagine for Asuna, who was right there to witness it all!
Not only that, but that syringe was known to kill people too! Oh my goodness Kirito I hope you're ok!
