You do realize that he's not posting a mod but as a viewer of the show, right? He has every right to discuss SAO; the forums and this thread is for that -- it's not only for praising SAO but also criticizing it.


. . .you watch it because you want to prove that it is bad? Come on, really that's just pathetic.


I think you're assuming things.



Anyways, to refrain from detracting from this thread, here's my input on SAO as a whole.

Few hipsters here, hate for popularity spans every variant of entertainment, why waste your time on something you hate?

Critique is good, it can help improve the product.

Hate is bad, it just annoys people and causes the neanderthalisation (not a word but you understand) of the targeted community.

Plot/character/plot element etc. is bad because <valid point here> = Critique

Plot is bad because you're all losers/i'm a hipster/popular stuff is too mainstream, etc. = Hate

My issue is that you try to present things that are 'opinion' as 'fact' and that can mislead others into not watching an anime. Its why I wish critics of manga/movies/anime/games/ and anything else would just shut up and go into their own little hole. Is this anime great for people like you? Maybe not but it is for others, however your 'opinion' can lead them away. I honestly could care less if you're a mod or not nor do I consider you a troll just a nitpicker that likes to use the mask of a 'critic'. I'd rather Aniplex had gone ahead and given the go ahead to have multiple seasons rather than rushing mid-way but I won't rant against the anime for it. Words have weight and you, and all other so callled 'critics', should learn to watch them better.


Probably because it seemed aggressive too, which makes it like he tries to target the show for those reasons.

AHTL
Yeah this probably what, I'm getting at, I didn't actually know that you were into it so much, but you are definitely presenting it in the wrong manner, and sorry on my behalf, I didn't know you were responding to someone -.-? Please quote xD. I honestly do respect your opinion. I just think that people that keep expressing their opinion in the same way and try to make people believe in 'you' instead of going to try watch the anime firsthand, is stupid:P *you* was just an Ex.
Mods don't post in forums because of this, probably yes. But it's the same if you took, say, a politician he's high up the power scale, now he were to do something stupid, he would be flamed at by all sort of people, same goes for celebrities, it's just because you are in a state of power, you should not think of you as one of us, even though you have the right to do so. *Not going against that you should do this, but this is what our society thinks today*



What I have a problem with is people that constantly criticize it, now I just learned about what he really meant, that he actually replied to another person, which makes sense that is good. But when you just keep doing it like:

I don't like this series - In one post
Later
This series sucks - in another post
later
Why do people even watch this - another post

Even though you have proof for saying all of this, I don't think you should try to shove it down another persons throat, thinking this is for the better, because the show is worthless or whatnot. I was wrong about AHTL, because he just replied to what someone asked.

Uhh, AHTL you DID state that you only watched SAO to laugh at how bad it is, which tends to kill any argument you have about giving it "a fair chance" or anything of the sort.

I just want to add that I really thoroughly enjoy this show even when the episodes lean towards 'filler'. All in all I really enjoy it and I suggest you stop critiquing so harshly so that you all can enjoy it more too =)

I had insomnia and my mind was wondering. I came up with theory as to why Kirito does not die in episode 14 when his life points are reduced to zero. Cardinal-sama is part of Kirito's harem. The system being in love with Kirito explains all his plot armor and the not dying when being killed. Computer programs can't be in love you say. Ha, Yui is a subprogram and has parental love for Kirito, so it is reasonable the main program(Cardinal) is in love with Kirito too. This theory hurts my brain. Hopefully by sharing it you will now share my pain.

I cannot wait for the next episode... I'm literally giddy with excitement. I think this is my new favourite anime of all time(depending on how this last episode goes), it might well replace Macross Plus in that spot, and I just hope that they get a good enough response that they decide to go into the other novel arcs in anime form later.

Tomorrow I'm going to be writing a bunch of SAO articles on my website in honour of the final episode, including listing my top 6 moments from the series, doing my second arc review, and more. I'm looking forward to it, and enjoying reliving the memories. :)

My take on why Kirito doesn't die:


Last edit: I swear

People aren't like that, Kirito is a good person, but he's flawed, that makes him easy to relate to.

It just wouldn't fit his character if he was like "lol its k I forgive bye"
He could have gotten his vengeance without that brutal display. Sugou didn't even have the skills to properly defend himself and Kirito still cut him up like a thanksgiving turkey.



Think about it this way... if you had just been tortured(which was what was happening to him), and had to watch someone try to r*** the woman you love - would you not want to give him a little bit back? Kirito is human, he snapped and took his revenge. If something like that had happened to me, I can tell you I'd have turn the person apart for it - damn the consequences... and I'm largely a pacifist. After what he did to Asuna, I was CHEERING for Kirito doing that to him. He deserved it, and I'd have done the same - and if you really think about it, you probably would too.

That's a large theory my friend.
Well, tomorrow is the last episode of the anime which everyone is talkign about.
I liked the Anime from beginning but it is slacking off.
Let's see how it ends.

Yep, I can't wait...

It is a large theory, my wife and I spent a good hour talking about it... :)

Eh, I've liked it all the way through with one exception. My wife and I have both agreed that the last half of episode 22 doesn't exist. lol

After reading a bunch of the comments this is what I've summarized: people don't like other people and don't like what they think. Come on guys, they made the anime for you to enjoy. Don't enjoy it? No one cares!

You and your wife should really check out the fan-translations of the Light Novels. Your theories aren't TOO far off... but it's explained a bit better in the LN.

Just google baka-tsuki.
