I mean, not really lolcow but still you have to wonder what the point of this anime is if the developers/writers behind it cut corners like no tomorrow. I mean that Asuna girl literally runs for 2 seconds and Kirito is all "OMG she is so l33t powarful!!". Not to mention the battles you never see, or story telling in general that is never seen.

If anything, you could argue that this anime is less about fighting and more about exploring the whatifs on an emotional level of a scenario where people get sucked into video games, but instead of the anime being suave about it by using microcosms and discussing in a metaphorical sense the impact of video game addiction, it instead takes the story literally which is why its damn weird their hearts clearly arent in to this anime they've created

This always happens in anime though. From what I'm told we're just getting through back ground stories and setting the settings. The real story might not even start for a while. This doesn't mean there's no love, it means quiet the opposite. If they don't give us a season 2, then I'll agree they just put us through setting and no story progression.

The storyline isn't far in enough, he's still getting his equipment; hell they haven't even forced kirito to use his dual blades, hes been using a one-handed sword this entire time in front of people because the monsters hes fighting right now aren't worth it. Later it on it gets a lot more intense when he duels headcliffe, is forced to join his guild, almost gets pked, marries asuna, goes into an insane boss battle on floor 75. The whole end sequence are all life-or-death level battles for kirito. (Instead of these battles where hes just half-assing helping girls)
