    I'm not really foreseeing good ratings for this.
    Well it is Labor Day weekend. I doubt they're expecting anything amazing either. Hence the decision to run a marathon instead of regular programming.
    I would rather have them doing a marathon for a different show, and DBZ Kai would be the most ideal. But they had their marathon already for Independence Day weekend, so the only other show that would make sense is SAO seeing that Akame ga Kill would not have aired enough episodes to have a marathon.

      I'm liking Akame go Kill, at least what I've seen so far. It might've gotten a little dark, a little fast (what with the warehouse) . . . I'm optimistic, though.

      On another topic, though - is the rest of Sword Art Online II just random adventures in ALO/New Aincrad? It was my understanding there's another game (with hyperspeed) at some point . . . Is that part of SAO II, or does it come later?

        As the OP shows, it involves both.

          Akame doesn't really go downhill until the final 8 or so episodes, and even then it's more 'meh' than awful. A move by the manga staff to wrap up the (still ongoing in the source material) story.

            That game is Project Alicization, which is actually a military program commissioned by the Japanese government to create top-down AI that would be used in unmanned vehicles and robots to reduce fatalities of soldiers

            Spoiler ->as a result of a brutal war that occurred in 1999 involving warmongering vampires from South America that killed a lot of people in Japan

            .

            The arc is called Alicization (it appears after Mother's Rosario), and is supposedly going to be the final arc of the series (judging by the original web novels that premiered between 2005-2008, which the current series is based off of), and is the longest story arc, lasting 9+ volumes (compared to the average 2). Judging by the length, it would make better sense to adapt it as either an OVA miniseries that covers every LN a la Hellsing Ultimate or as a movie series a la Berserk movies rather than as a TV series.

              Slight dropoff for Akame ga Kill and DBZ Kai from last week but still great numbers:

              1.4 million for Akame ga Kill episode 2 is still great.

                Sword Art Online continuing to show that good writing and good characters begets good numbers.

                Expected for Kai since well they are taking forever to even get to Freeza. I cant believe it took the whole episode for only two wishes to be granted. I was sure that was online like a few pages in the manga.

                I liked that AGK episode cause shirtless Tatsumi is best Tatsumi. Wish people tuned in for it.

                  Great to see those ratings seeing that there was bound to be a dropoff. DBZ and AGK didn't lose much momentum after starting off with a bang. I'm just hoping that things hold strong until the week after Labor Day weekend when Esdeath is introduced.

                      Not bad! Wasn't expecting them to be as good as last week, but these still look pretty killer!

                        Man, I was expecting a drop back into the 1300-1400 range for Kai. If this is the new normal, I'm okay with it.

                              Err, no. It actually beat Attack on Titan in Adults, which is more important.
