Why would you watch so many episodes if you disliked it? Baffles me entirely!


I'm going to tell this little story to explain this one. Once upon a time there was this show called Puella Magi Magika Madoka. I decided to check it out. After the first episode, I decided to drop it because it bored me.

But no, Everyone said, GIVE IT A CHANCE!! YOU CAN'T JUDGE AN ANIME ON ONE EPISODE!!! Fair enough, I decided to give it a chance and watch the series through. I Still Found it to be boring and I found the ending to be crap and most of the characters to be crap.

Now I am asked, WHY WOULD YOU WATCH A SHOW YOU DON'T LIKE.

Does this sound familiar?

To put it nicely. I watch shows I don't like to perhaps find something I WILL like about the show.

And with SAO that thing was the ALO arc, and with Madoka that thing was Kyouko.

Or like the ever so Popular Twilight Series. I just like to have an informed opinion on it instead of ignorantly bashing a show like I see so many people doing to popular shows like Naruto and One Piece.

Allow me to add one detail that I think is overlooked by people like 'critics' and those that wish to defend them like but not limited to GayAsianBoy. I don't like overly positive reviews either ( I don't like ANY reviews or critiques as they are pure opinioon) but at least they don't push people away from anime/manga/etc that they may actually enjoy. Negative reviews do however push people away from manga/anime/etc they may enjoy. And all based on what? 1 person's (or a select group's) opinion? Again 'critics' need to just shut up and crawl back into their holes since all they serve to do is kill off potentially good shows.


What?

Go to the review section of Sword Art Online on Crunchyroll. "997" people gave it 5 stars compared to "11" people giving it 1 star and "9" people gave it 2 stars..

You're seriously saying those 20 people are going to influence a lot of people into not watching the show?

If anything, it's those 997 people who gave it unrealistic high ratings that make people come to watch the show and expect it to be good but it actually turns out to be mediocre so they become "haters" after watching the show.

Then the positive reviewers have the nerve to say something like, "Don't watch the show if you don't like it"...
My retort would be, "Don't give it 5 stars when it's not worthy of 5 stars".


Except that it obviously WAS worthy of 5 stars for the people who gave it that. People don't just randomly click on a star value.

Personally, I enjoyed SAO. Yes, I do think it's rather overrated, but I still enjoyed it nonetheless.

I love how everybody who hates the show are hating it for different reasons that sometimes contradict each other. Some of you guys are complaining that Kirito and Asuna don't get enough bonding time... (Log Cabin part) And then some of you are complaining that the log cabin part where they spend some quality time with each other was completely pointless.

SAO can't appeal to everyone. It's not the best anime, it has a few plot holes (not sure about the novel), and it had the potential to do a lot better. If you didn't like it, you didn't like it. If you liked it, you liked it. Please stop bashing SAO for not suiting your tastes. Some of the comments I saw on this thread at various points really weren't called for. Don't get me wrong, I'm not trying to stop you from disliking SAO, I'm just saying to stop making immature comments related to liking it/the people liking it.

Agreed. I'm rather indifferent to the series but to see what is nothing more than hate directed at the show is rather amusing. The more successful something is, the more likely there will be people that will have some compelling urges to attempt to shoot it down. A good example is Justin Bieber. The guy got so much hate presumably because people wanted to see him fail. Not every anime is for everyone. We should all realize that.

Yeah, the show is somewhat overrated, but I still liked it. The light novels are still better but whatever

I agree with the points AHTL made of how Kirito is a Gary stue and his stupid harem but it's not as bad as some people claim (only average).

If Kirito is a Gary Stu then every male MC from Spike (Cowboy Bebop) to w/e ones come int 2013 are also Gary Stu's. And I really don't find anything AHTL mentioned to be 'fact' just one person's 'opinion'.

but there wasn't really any harem involved here. Kirito is completely and utterly devoted to Asuna, and the others never had any chance.
also, the problem people have with the characters not dying any more because of the game, there seems to be a massive blank in everyones mind, in the place that his fight with sugou IRL should be. he got attacked with a knife, and even got wounded. in the next arc, GGO, he very nearly gets killed, when he almost gets injected with a chemical capable of stopping his heart.

I never said it was a fact. Yes it's all an opinion but I AGREE with his opinion on those points I mentioned

Almost all of the girls are in love with him that makes it a harem.

You people don't have to take everything he said seriously its just an opinion. If you disagree then so be it.

In the end that's all it is, an opinion.
