Well it's a sorta cliche series, but I really like the dynamic between asuna and kirito during the SAO arc. She wasn't a damsel in distress, and they had equal footing. Often, she was the one saving him (whether from physical danger, or in an emotional sense). It felt more like a real relationship thanks to this, and added to the depth of the show.

I'm not sure about this new arc. I love the characters so I'll keep watching it, but I really hope their dynamic stays the same once he's done getting her out of trouble, or better yet, I hope she gets out of it herself. Haven't caught up entirely yet, so no spoilers please >.>

Because some people think that SAO was hyped to extreme levels so they think they should be overly critical of the show and examine every facet and point out every flaw in detail just so they can tell other people they don't like the show and that you shouldn't like it either

its just a show, it has some flaws here and there but its still a good show, something to keep you entertained imo

its not an amazing achievement in anime as some people make it out to be but its also not crappy as others try to always point out

Well, I finished the first ARC. And I can't say I "LOVE" it but it's a very well animated and fast-paced show. The action was great and the character dynamics were good. I don't read manga, period, so I'm not sure how long it's planned to be but it's definitely a great anime. It's the kind of anime you'd suggest to someone who maybe would like to explore the genre. Just because of its pace, style, action, and it includes a lot of the cliche anime moments that make us geeks, geek out.

It's the fault of the SAO fan-base for being intolerant to intelligent criticism of the show's copious scripting flaws.

Sadly, there are many problems with SAO (the anime), but those that have legitimate, well thought out issues with SAO are drowned out by nut-jobs who are just asshole trolls and see an overly sensitive youthful community that can be tossed into chaos with the slightest flick of the keyboard.

The problem lies in the human nature to gravitate toward Idolatry and worship. That type of mass behavior will ALWAYS attract criticism and trolls.

SAO is a fun, interesting, yet flawed show. At the end of the day, it's a fucking cartoon. Enjoy it, but don't close your mind to critical review and slip into worship. Don't close your mind to anything.

There's a vocal minority of haters who like to complain either because it didn't live up to their overly high expectations or simply because it's popular and it's hip to hate popular things.

If all of these damn SAO threads could just be relegated to the SAO forums the anime could be out of sight and out of mind for the haters, and the fans could have someplace to talk about it in. But the way that the forums are set up, the link to the SAO forum is on the SAO page and doesn't get any traffic from there. And it doesn't show up as a sub forum in anime because it doesn't have enough posts in it.

If a mod were to go through and move all the SAO topics there though, there will be enough posts in it for a link to show up as a sub forum for anime. Something to consider if one of you read this

I don't hate it because it was over hyped or because it's so popular.. it just got boring to watch. I wanted more action scenes and less kissy face crap between Kirito and Asuna. That being said I don't really hate it I just completely lost interest in it after ep 13 or 14 maybe 15, I can't remember. I might watch the rest sometime if there's nothing better to watch.

Ive watched the entire show. Personnaly, i had fun watcing it, but for me, the real story should have ended at episode 14 with the realease of asuna and maybe a episode 15 that looked like episode 25.

The next episode lost there sense to me. Ok, Kirito has a cousin. Ok, shes in love with him which does not seem to bother japanesse people by the way. But he loves only Asuna...

What made me mad in the second season was the emphasis on the cousin relationship wich had no meaning for me. Ok make one or two episode on it, but move on, i wanna see Kirito save Asuna.

The second bad guy is..oh...stupid...He has no depth. I love the first vilain better...


Anyway, has one said, its only an anime and for me its not the best there ever was, but not the worst too. It was pleasent to watch. For me, series that has left a strong impression are Clannad and Chrono Crusade. And for me, the last episode of clannad, the happy ending, should not exist...

Eh it's like all things it has fans and haters although the haters are pretty vocal.
I like it though but thats probably because I was a huge MMO freak for about 4 years.

I have never seen so much threads made from one anime alone well at least from an anime from 2012.

The concept in SAO is very exciting and there are a lot of MMO players who are into anime and there are expectations , but the writing and adaptation is weak which disappoints a lot.

I'm kinda indifferent towards the anime. I understand what people are complaining about when they say there are things they don't like, because there was a large amount of information that was straight up cut out. personally, as I have said before, I like using the anime as a supplement for the light novels. it's great getting to see some of my favorite scenes animated, but I wish they would have taken the time to develop the story and characters properly.

Yeah and it's against forum rules but they don't get closed for some reason. Someone must be a fan.
