I'm beginning to wonder if you've ever actually seen a harem anime before.

I don't hate Sword Art: Online, I just dislike it.

When I saw the first episode I thought to myself "Oh great, a .//hack sign rip off". After the first season was done a lot of people were expressing their love for the series in forums, and I thought I should try it out.

It's fun, but not very complex or deep.

Take Kirito, for example...

Now on to topic at hand, I like SAO cause I enjoy the story and how it progresses through time. To me the characters are relate-able and I want to see what happens to them. The first season had more drama-action and the second season drama-romance imo one of the reasons people whine about it is that they were expecting an action show. I refuse to fall into the status of being a 'critic' so I won't say anything about disliking this or that. Ultimately I'd say to watch the series and if you like it, you like it and if not, then you don't but just do everyone a favor by not donning the mask of a so called 'critic'.

I think a lot of the people who started to watch SOA enjoyed the first 11-14 episodes, then i started to fall off. Dont get me wrong it was a great series.

The only trouble I had with it was that they couldn't die in the second game, I thought that was pretty lame. So everything cool that happened I would just think "thats nice but, he could just go eat dinner and come back try again" but I guess the driving force was that he couldn't wait any longer than he had to to rescue asuna.
some of the fights were amazing, the soundtrack kicked butt! I can't think of a single character who annoyed me, I can think of a few that might annoy other people but they all seemed fine to me. and for some reason i just really like kirito and asuna. I always say to stay away from romance unless you can actually use it for the story and use it right, and I think they did a good job of using it. It added a lot to the show.

I personally loved SAO at the beginning; the execution of the 1st few episodes was superb. The anime had great, and I mean great potential from there, I just loved how they introduced each of the characters, be they support or main chars. The few episodes after that were not nearly as good, but I was still hooked at the time anyway (watched season 1 in one straight night).

What was bad about the anime though (to me anyway) was;

- The numerous plotholes and extreme timeskips that did not keep true to the original LN (which was frustrating because I would have loved to see the side-characters backstories explored more slowly and thoroughly)
- As an example, one of the episodes (episode 14 I believe) was rather poorly executed; it felt extremely rushed. To further elaborate:
(SPOILERS FOR THE INNOCENT)

- also LOL at the girls who only get one episode each in season 1 (other than that pink haired merc who appeared in another episode as a minor cameo, don't remember what for)

What I did love about the series though;

- the irresistibly adorably horribly horrendously cute couple that is Kirito and Asuna. God. I loved their little antics/rituals together later in season one. The way their characters developed prior to that when they were together as comrades before was just as good as well; this helped alot as this relationship developed throughout the series. In my opinion, one of the best romantic anime couples I ever came across.
- The majority of the fight scenes. THE FIGHT SCENES BRO. So intense and adrenaline pounding. I loooooved watching those while experiencing what emotions the combatants felt as they were fighting at the same time. And I know this was based in an MMO, but I still say the HP gauges are a nice aesthetic touch. o/

So, yeah. I guess that just about sums up everything I feel about this particular anime. :]
