Because SAO had so much potential to do so much with the material they were given and instead, they wasted it down the loo by pandering to the audience and taking cheap shortcuts, harems, and Deus Ex Machina Complex.

I personally don't hate it, but I can understand some of the anger the people have for the series because of the wasted opportunity. But I have to give it credit for bringing in more people to anime.

I can go on forever talking about the flaws of the show, but I wish to live.

I don't hate SAO, however i did feel that the story abruptly shifted into a strange romance - focused pathway. I don't think many people were expecting them to fall in love so suddenly. It became revolved around their love rather than the story of finishing the game. And then there's the fact that they skipped huge time intervals and just showed Kirito stronger without much depth into the things that happened in the game world with its civilisation. That's why a lot of people began to hate. There was potential for so much more depth in story telling. Kirito's character of an individual solo fighter changed far too suddenly and Asuna's strong female role turned more into a heroine role. I liked the anime, but i can understand why others don't.

People with actual taste have to show their hate that much more to compensate for the amount of fan-boying it gets.

I don't dislike it. But It was just a bit..flat. Yeah. Flat.

And the fact that I see a lot of similarities on it with .hack//GU[or just .hack// in general] made me unable to actually 'like' SAO. orz

..Akihiko's role was so much like Ovan's, and there are some of Kirito's characteristics that seemed like Haseo's, and then there's Yui--which is a lot like Aina//Aura.
And then the last villain, that guy...Suneo? Sunao? Ugh I'll just say, King Oberon, the one with mad ambitions and stuff, his eyes were scarred, almost exactly like the last villain in .hack//GU's manga.
Oh yeah, and Klein is a bit like Kuhn. Though Kuhn was smoother around women. But that type of character is rather popular. So I should just let that pass.

Anyhow! I wouldn't go as far as to hate it. Any anime with good-looking food in it is seriously OK.

Lol, I don't know if we can call SAO 2012 best anime yet but it's definitely the most famous anime in 2012, since I see everywhere talking about it and whenever a topic about it pop up, it's easily got hundreds of comments in a day or two

Even Fate Zero, Madoka, Nekomonogatari, Seed .... not even got this much topic after they finished for months

We're eleven pages in and no one has really leveled proper criticism at this series. Everyone's complaints are personal issues with the story or characters, and most of them are so poorly articulated that it's difficult to take them seriously. I suppose the opposite can also be said though; that no one has leveled a proper defense of the series either, but honestly why bother.

both parties have given up defending the series to a level of sophistication, but i do think the previous threads have had better arguments

I hated the season where they went to Ireland (season 3 I think?) and I quit watching after that.
