I feel sorry for all of you who are annoyed with parts of this anime. You should become professional critics, so that you're paid for such annoyances. I could go into critic mode everytime I watch an anime, but why would I? I tend to greatly enjoy animes like SAO and the few annoyances that I have are tiny. Animes with amazing graphics and plot I enjoy even more. Therefore, I get super happy whenever I watch the latest episode of an anime that I'm watching. I don't watch TV, but like on TV, there are some artistically amazing animes out there, and there are animes that are fun to watch, but don't really have any value. I can enjoy both.

What I can't understand is how people can still enjoy animes like Bleach, which in my opinion, get dry after awhile. If they can, good for them, but I'll stick to my relatively short animes.



How do you know that people who dislike SAO are Bleach fans?
For my reviews, I gave both SAO and Bleach the same ratings, 3 out of 5 stars.

From what I'm seeing, people who like Bleach are the same people who like SAO.


Why would SAO fans even go out of their way to hate on Bleach? They are way different..... That just makes no sense.

What I think about this topic is deliver your opinion but don't trash the anime at all. That is all I ask.

The thread starter is pretty much calling it a bullshit anime which is pretty much uncalled for and not needed and also calling it "Sword Ass Online" that is pretty immature in my opinion.

Everyone has their opinions about the anime but don't trash it because you aren't going to affect the anime at all. If you don't like the anime then don't watch it. I am pretty much asking myself this "If he hates the anime so much then why is he even watching it?" Now ask yourself that and if you can't come up with a reasonable answer then stop trashing it and stop calling the anime by ridiculous names, act like a mature adult and give your opinion and that's that.

Does anyone agree?

I think the big problem is that people for some reason expect this to be some sort of fighting anime, which it isn't. Its two primary themes are the abuse of technology and the relationship between Asuna and Kirito.

As to the whole willpower thing affecting outcomes in the game, it does come off as a bit of Deus ex machina, but only because they don't explain in here why it works rather than there not being a reason for it. They explain a bit more in Accel World, which is set another 20 or so years in the future iirc. Pretty much since the technology interfaces directly with your brain, when these "willpower" situations come up it is fundamentally using your brain to hack the system.

I love how people somehow assume that I've said things that.. I haven't said. I'm just saying that right now, SAO is a smallish anime. I like small animes. Bleach was also good when it was around the same number of episodes.

I referenced Bleach because I said that I tend to enjoy almost all animes, except for ones like Bleach that stretch on for 300+ episodes and are filled with needless fillers. However, I recognized that some people do continue to like Bleach, and good for them that they still get enjoyment out of it. I don't so much.

TLDR; People shouldn't bash other people who get enjoyment out of something that other people consider to be trash. Though it is good to not constantly watch animes that are intellectual trash, despite how enjoyable they might be to watch.

Pretty much. The two story's are linked . Haruyuki mentions the evolution of the Nerve gear when he's trying to figure out how certain Burst linkers were able to challenge without appearing on match lists themselves. And UnderWorld from SAO pretty much seems like it might be directly related to the creation of Brain Burst.

Holy crap- this anime is so overrated. And I normally never say this. I could barely even finish season 1- and gave up by the time season 2 came out.

A log cabin arc? Really?

you're joking right...that was what, 1-2 eps of character development and introducing Yui? and its just following the light novels lol

that's kind of an apples and oranges argument comparing Bleach and SAO since they are different concepts (sure there are fighting scenes, that's kind of the only similarity though), but I kind of understand what you're trying to say

I personally don't see how you can tear an anime apart and over-analyze every single point about it. I don't know anything about how story, plot or character development should work. I just watch the anime and try to enjoy it as much as I can, and I can safely say I am enjoying the hell out of SAO. Analyzing it would just ruin it completely for me, but I guess everyone's different. I'll leave the debating to you lot while I just watch the show.


welcome to the internet, where every one is an "expert"

There are many things left to be desired when a manga is made into an anime. There are fillers as well as edits from the in story. I admit, for some, that the plot seems weak and things end too quickly, but then I agree with the author: If you don't like it, write something better. I find humor in the number of "experts" online that have nothing to do but whine about how they dislike this and that in an anime. I personally liked most of the series so far. I think that the series in general is not too bad, but i dislike the final boss fights. That is my opinion. People online think they are more inportant than they really are; pull your self-righteous stick out of your a**.

As for character development, I think the changes between SAO and ALF are meant to make Kiruto evolve as a player. Games in which a player dies when his "character" dies will only go so far in telling how a person will react. The point of SAO is that games are places in which you must enjoy yourself and learn and that, sometimes, the lesson you must learn comes with a high cost. The point of ALF,however, is to make Kiruto (and the reader/viewer) learn that failure is a part of learning and that you cannot do everything by yourself, no matter how much you want to.

I am eagerly waiting the next arc and LN.

yeah I don't understand them either, I admit the show has its flaws but
the problem I have with these "experts" are that they constantly bring up how "oh SAO sucks, it's such trash, you shouldn't watch it, only idiots watch it, you should watch something with a well structured plot and characters instead"
they will constantly troll other people saying that your taste in anime is bad and you should feel bad for liking a show that is just entertainment and for your enjoyment
they don't like the show, but hell they won't let it go and just move on
simply put

Fanboy alert


Dont act like a child as it takes your opinion of SAO and takes it down a notch.

As far as the "incest" you talk about. Go back and watch it since you have convinced everyone that you havent paid attention or you might have noticed that they are NOT brother & sister but cousins but even a bigger deal is that you missed the mark a second time since there has been no kissing, or groping, or sex.
He has never looked any where since he became involved with Asuna!!


You are the typical teenage boy, anything other than the shallow part of the story is lost on you. That is your problem.

I really enjoy SAO and decided to read the novel to see what they left out.
They have done a really good job of transfering what is in the novel to video. I hope that they are going to finish the GunGale Arc. Now if an anime is out that I like I look to see if a novel is used as the base for it.


SAO is one of the better anime to come out recently.
To those who want to rant about what is wrong the solution is simple, watch something else.
Posted 12/17/12
A lot of my problems with SAO comes from the characterizations of Kerrytoe and Assuna; they both have little to no depth in their characters and it's hard to care for them that way. Kerrytoe is presented as a Gary Stu, a holy martyr who has some hints of depression, and angst but can apparently overpower the commands and system of a game through sheer willpower (yes, I've heard arguments that the novel presents foreshadowing but I'm talking about the anime). Asuna who we know is a strong player is made into a damsel in distress cowering behind Kerrytoe when she can hold her own.

I'll elaborate later on.

Lol at least spell the person your trying to bash on name right, its Kirito..... unless you men't to do that. Also I like the flying combat wish they'd have a bit more but he only had a week to save her so they had to make him move through the game quickly and it was a game written over SAO so there was some data mishaps hence his high level. Though if you've caught up I think that has something to do with the creator giving him a boost.

lets see the reason why i dont get involved in forums are this type of things,,people tend to analyze all small type of things and make it bigger than it actually is ...and sometimes they just go on writing without any knowledge or just biased on their thoughts and opinion ...

and for SAO early arc it was totally fine as it showed the natural reaction of human beings when they were in surprised pinch ....i believe that the reason why asuna was able to move and why kirito was able to kill the leader was mention in the light novel ,
going on all the way to talk shit about an anime is just to immature ..and ohh it an anime ....its just for entertainment ,nothing is supposed to be real and you dont have to take it so seriously that you have to look at every small detail and argue about it .. if you dont like it dont watch it and dont say bs about it .....

remember something can be bad for you but the same thing can be good for other so just dont go around talking nonsense ,its just a matter of mutual respect towards each other

I was going to write something very lengthy but... it seems like everything's already been fought and torn apart.

Well. One thing I can say is, I wish there were a "Nitpick" button. While I was trying to read everyone's side of things the same nuances got nitpicked over and over again, and then the same fight over the same nitpicking would occur:

Like the definition of "Ruin" or "Opinion" and even what the "Source Material" was (the topic is the SAO anime, where the plot first came from is interesting but not necessary when discussing how someone views the plot). The fighting about these things typically lead off topic and sometimes into just generic insults.

BTW. My interpretation of the topic: HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT THE PLOT OF SAO?

Not be a pointless nitpick myself, I'll say that I agree a lot with the Gary Stu assertion of Kirito. Whoever wrote that spoiler section was pretty thorough and came up with things I hadn't even thought of myself. I'm also proud to say I learned "deus ex machina." At the time of watching the relevant episode, my whole apartment just heard me screaming about "attacks pulled out of Kirito's ass." It's nice to have a formal word to use from now on.

General plotwise: It's alright. I didn't feel connected to pretty much any of the characters. The mini-stories in the first few episodes were entertaining enough for me to come back every week. It's not something I've fallen in love with though. It's certainly not the top of my list of the Simulcast. I agree with the notion that it feels like SAO could've been bigger than it is; stretched out, filled, and defined. The characters and the world.

When it comes to the skills arena, I have to say that I don't and never thought anything was missing. The basis of Sword Art Online was that it was all about Sword fighting. So the skills being how they were fit naturally to me. Now that I have time to think about it, it would've been interesting if they went more into different sword techniques and based the skills on that; But that's just me. The other elements of MMO seemed also fine to me as a person whose never played an MMO; only watched.

The second arc did have me bored for a while, I quit following it every week and only just recently watched a couple of the most recent episodes (and read the summaries of the ones I didn't).

Do I feel like the series has gone completely to crap? No.

Do I feel like it's the best series ever? No.

I think it's okay. Not "good" but okay. So I guess a C+/B- overall.

I won't argue that the Alfheim arc is as strong as the original SAO arc - it isn't, but I hope folks realize that, while Kirito's life may not be in jeopardy in Alfheim, the lives of Asuna & the other 300 trapped by Sugou are very much on the line. After all, he could never get away with his crime if Asuna ever, ever wakes up. That means he could be planning to trap her indefinitely in the game, or, more likely, quietly kill her once he has his inheritance squared away.
