I think someone stated eariler, it's been depicted in art since the early 1800's in Japan. While I'm not 100% what the orginal intentions where (besides someone who really like octopus), simply based on the reaction I've seen from SAO, it's there to make the viewer uncomfortable, and shift in their seat. The idea of creepy, slimy tentacles about to violate someone is distrubing. Generally, while guys just get choked out, girls often get the sexual part of it, as it's a common theme to threaten the female with some kind sexual assault, that normally spurs to the viewer to hate the badguy/thing/octopus and root for our heroes to jump into action.

Think about all the sci-fi movies with creepy aliens...all that slime and those tentacles...it's repulsive. As such, it works.

Then you have people that enjoy that kinda thing.......which I believe is an entire OTHER topic of discussion, not fit for this board.

That tentacle scene was very bizarre and didn't really fit there, I thought. I also don't know why tentacles don't go away, but I'm not going to make a big deal about it. I guess we're a minority

Damn, I shouldn't have asked lol

Also, SAO brought this to us first:
Silica gets grabbed by tentacles, no outcry
Asuna gets grabbed by tentacles, OH HELL NAW

Yes I know, one was AI enemy tentacle, the other was creepy scientists I just thought it was funny to point out because I just remembered this scene

Nothing like slimy tentacles all over an anime girl just to please those who enjoy watching that type of thing... Definitely, not my cup of tea. Especially, in SAO I felt that it was unnecessary and out of place.

Lol I read the book first and initially thought hmm I wonder if that will actually be in the anime.
It was actually much creepier looking in the anime than I was able to conjure in my head so eww I guess.
TBH though I dont really care about the whole tentacle thing since it seems to be here to stay.

No seriously. Tentacles don't bother me that much, at lest until the day someone decides to make them plot device for something. No wait, that could be pretty cool. I think. No?

How did I know this was about SAO before clicking...? XD

If there's tentacles or any kind of wrap or whip like thing, expect the one with large boobs to be caught and squeezed. Happens every time.

Tentacles are in a lot of anime mostly just because the Japanese are sick in the head (and a few other non Japanese people probably like tentacles too sadly), severely so. They make some very good anime, and then they got some seriously twisted fetishes also which is scary. Don't think that will ever stop though so just avoid the messed up tentacle stuff and watch something decent instead.
