Sword Art Online Breaks Hearts with Tearful Kirito and Asuna Reunion

Sword Art Online: Alicization's War of Underworld arc introduced a major game changer with Kirito finally waking back up from his coma after all this time, and the newest episode really made sure to break hearts with Kirito and Asuna's tearful reunion. Asuna and Kirito have been apart throughout the entirety of the Alicization arc thus far, and things had been tough for Asuna as she has only seen Kirito's lifeless body in both the physical and digital worlds up to this point. But she was finally able to relax just a little bit more seeing Kirito awake again.

Episode 19 of the series picks up immediately from the cliffhanger which saw Kirito save Asuna and the others from Prisoner of Hell's attack. Kirito then proceeds to fight Prisoner of Hell alone and demonstrated much of the new strength he had gathered by piecing himself together with many of the past forms of himself alongside an additional boost of power from Eugeo. Following the fight, Asuna finally is able to meet with Kirito again.

She had been holding herself back as Kirito fought, but with Prisoner of Hell defeated she was finally able to feel that much needed relief seeing Kirito alive and well again. Rushing to hug him, the two of them embrace with a tearful reunion that was definitely the much needed catharsis both Asuna and fans needed after well over a year of them being split apart by Kirito's multiple injuries.

Although Kirito and Asuna were finally reunited, it is far from the totally happy ending that they were hoping for as there is still one major fight to be had in order to save Alice and the rest of Underworld. But at least now that Kirito and Asuna are both stronger than ever, it's going to take quite a lot to bring the both of them down.

Did you tear up at Kirito and Asuna's reunion during Sword Art Online: Alicization - War of Underworld's newest episode? Excited to see the two of them fight together again after all this time? What did you think of Kirito's big return to action?

History of Art Timeline

The historical past of art is usually told as a chronology of masterpieces created during each civilization. It can thus be framed as a narrative of high culture, epitomized by the Wonders of the World. On any other hand, vernacular art expressions can even be integrated into art historic narratives, called folk arts or craft. The more intently that an art historian engages with these latter sorts of low culture, the much more likely it is that they will determine their work as analyzing visual culture or cloth culture, or as contributing to fields associated with art historical past, akin to anthropology or archaeology. In the latter cases, art gadgets may be called archeological artifacts. Surviving art from this era comprises small carvings in stone or bone and cave painting. The first traces of human-made gadgets appeared in southern Africa, the Western Mediterranean, Central and Eastern Europe Adriatic Sea, Siberia Baikal Lake, India, and Australia. These first traces are general…

How to Show Art Work when the Gallery Says No Thanks

There are places in the town where you live where you can show your artwork when the big gallery you solicited said, "No, thanks."
Other artists may need to find venues other than galleries to show their artworks as well. Visual artists living in art-rich communities where there is a lot of local competition will need to get creative about display opportunities.

Or on the other hand, in towns without large art venues, it is important for artists to find smaller and less obvious places to show your art.

How to Show Art Work When The Gallery Says No Thanks

1. Show Where You Go

The most successful approach to finding a place in your town to display your artwork is to solicit a place that you go to frequently. Make a list of all the places you go to each day, each week, and each month.

Make a special trip, or the next time you visit note if the establishment currently exhibits any artwork, if it is local, and if it is for sale.

Also note if they have available wall space where a…

Book review (nonfiction): Form or function? In the history of poster art, the two sides are constantly at war

“Who takes the eye takes all,” said Mary Lowndes of the Artists’ Suffrage League in the early 1900s, neatly summarizing the need for striking graphics on the banners that suffragists were making for their marches. Lowndes’ statement could serve as the motto for all those who attempt to persuade by visual means, be they propagandists for political parties or advertisers selling soap. “The Poster,” edited by Gill Saunders and Margaret Timmers of the Victoria & Albert Museum in London, is a beautiful and entertaining account of the history of the medium, illustrated with examples drawn from the museum’s extensive collection.While handbill-sized fliers affixed to surfaces had long been in existence, it was the development of the large-scale color lithographic technique, with images composed of several pieces that could be pasted together into one picture, that made possible the explosion of graphic media campaigns in the 19th century. The first-rate artists who turned th…
