I didn't think SOA SAO was bad it was appealing and interesting to the end. Might of been A hack/Sign copy but at least it was still good.

People are saying
Its the Cancer of anime
Hack/Sign Ripoff
No development
Stupid romance
Etc..etc..

I need to know wtf happend. It went from super Fan boys to super hate.....???

Because the anime was full of shit, in which the shit put in didn't needed to be in the anime, the shit I'm talking about are the side stories.

SAO ep 1, 2 skip to ep (protagonist gets recruited), skip to beating last boss. would been fine as a 6 episode ova.

Introduce fairy dance as another 6 ep ova or give it a series to "hype" it up even more, since the 6 ep ova would of been better.

The main failure of this anime is, the adaption from the novels, since the novels are based around a composition of ARC's. Each ARC needed to have it's own time to debut and shine. Combining two ARC's together was a failure of the directing and green lit team.

If SAO had been SAO for a 12 first season, it would of ended with a HUGE cliff hanger and if it had been done well it would of gotton a second season fairy dance. I do understand that the company wanted closure by combining the two ARC's, but now look how much hate and love this anime has received because of poor planning and execution of the story base.

Well, I don't hate it. But, I think it is the fact that it had the potential to be even better if they had stuck with the SAO arc and fleshed it out more. Instead they shoehorned the ALO arc into the same season.

I personally enjoyed it...maybe because of the dramatic battle scenes, of which I found appealing. Otherwise I believe there were some scenes that should have been left out..

And to answer your question, some people like SAO because of it's plot others may find it generic, some may enjoy the romance, others may find it bland, some may enjoy the fight scenes, others may find the some scenes poorly executed, it's pretty much opinionated, and because of all the hype, and a larger crowd watching this there's bound to be discontent from a large party. Which brings us the fundamental truth, you either love it or hate it.

Well i personally liked it, and it made me read the light novel of it aswell.

i've never understood the haters, but there will ALWAYS be haters no matter where you go and what you.

Different people -> Different minds

All you can do is watch whatever you enjoy, like i got a recommendation for Desert Punk the other day, the first cpl of episodes was nice, but at like episode 6-7 i began falling asleep because it jst got really really boring for me, no context etc etc. Aka that makes me a hater, of an otherwise great anime (according to some)

The super fan boy-thing was pretty much just the hype of it being an mmorpg anime and having really good elements of it, the whole part of it being "hardcore mode"(die ingame -> dead irl) made the anime more interesting and there was another element which made the anime better to some.
Now when they removed that with Alfheim, it became alot more relaxed already etc, so in that way it gained haters instead of more fanboys.

Now i just hope you can see where im going with this

Go to MyAnimeList and check out the reviews. I guarantee it, you will find at least one hater within the first page of reviews.

I dislike SAO because the romance is extremely poorly-written. Kirito and Asuna are flat characters, not enough development. Not to mention the fact that I didn't start watching the series for the romance in the first place. I started watching for the awesome 'trapped in the game, can't die or you'll die IRL too' plot.
But alas, it turned into a romance series. Wasted potential.

And not only are the protagonists flat, but the villain (of the latter half) is very poorly-developed too, heck, even more so than Kirito and Asuna.


But I will admit that despite its glaring flaws, I did enjoy SAO a little. I didn't have to force myself to finish it, so it must've been doing something right.

Yeah, I agree with that. The second half of SAO wasn't as great as the first.

Hey how about we let the thread die?

You're gonna read the same stuff as if you're going to read with other SAO threads...
