Sword Art Online Criticism????

So I just watched the first four episodes and I think this show is good but not great. From what limited footage I've seen, I dont think that this show has lived up to all the hype it gets and I hope things really start picking up. Before you throw me into the fire and called a satanist, I will say this: I am still open-minded about this show and will continue watching it because four episodes is barely anything and I can't really judge an anime based on four episodes unless its absolute dog poop.

So with that being said, yeah I like the idea of Sword Art Online but Jesus Christ that show goes fast. At first I had to check to see if I was accidentally skipping episodes or what. At the end of the first episode, he parts ways with the redhead (sorry I dont remember the names, sue me) and he says that he travels alone.... Ok... well in the beginning of the next episode, he immediately groups up with a girl and it appears as if they have built a strong relationship and I got the feeling that she will be key to the story's plot. However, in the third episode, she is not even mentioned.... The story picks up with him joining a guild and Kirito becomes emotionally attached to another female and one of the members of the guild.... So then I thought she would be a main character... 10 minutes later, her and a bunch of other people are dead and at the end of the episode Kirito is crying over her... Am I supposed to feel saddened that a girl who was in the story for 10 minutes died??? The fourth episode and the last episode that I saw was more or less the same. Kirito meets a girl and the girl likes him and at the end of the episode, they part ways..... Wtf?????

Why does this anime move by so fast???? Kirito goes from level 1 to level 78 in the first four episodes!!!!!!!!!! There could be like 10 episodes in between each of the first four episodes!!!!!!!!! I know I know, I'm only four episodes in, how can I criticize this show... so maybe I should go suck a wet fart out of my grandma's ass and hold it in like a bong hit... But come on....

I still have hope for this show because the only reason for why they made this show go by so fast in the beginning is if theres some crazy ass, wonky plot twist that blind sides the shit out of my ass.

So... yeah.

Welll I watched the first episode and have been wanting to give it another shot but just can't make myself because like you said its good but not great.........So it didn't really catch my attention at all. Maybe I will try to watch it again because there are many anime that don't actually start off well but are awesome after the first few episodes.

there should be a thread for this,

but there are 3 things you should know:

1.don't be subjected to mass opinions

2.those are filler episodes the story doesn't start until later episodes

3.raging should occur after you finished it

Main SAO thread is here: http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumtopic-766625/sword-art-online-discussions?pg=91#43000509

I'll post my reply there as well, just to hook things back up where they belong and stuff.

It wasn't that good. There just wasn't much else decent running at that time.

1. I'm not which is why I made this thread.
2. Kind of weird to have the first four episodes be filler episodes.
3. Noone is raging here.

Edited 3. Noone is bashing anything.

Have you ever seen Twilight before? Well just expect that except with virtual reality rather than Vampires and Werewolves

Never seen Twilight and never will lol. Since you can compare the two, it makes me wonder if I should keep watching SAO...

I was kind of expecting this anime to be a bit more .hack//ish but like a new and refined version of it. Wasn't expecting several different girls to fall in love with the main character 4 episodes in, lol.

it is better than twilight and i haven't even seen twilight

because a storyboard with vampires done wrong is just piss poor. it is one of unforgiving themes

You really can't, it's just a generic internet bash people use on anything they dislike when they don't want to think of a better reason to explain their position. I honestly can't think of any actual story correlations between the two.

And I have read (most of) Twilight.

But anyway, we should move to the other thread. Since this one will just be deleted or merged with it anyway.

We can just skip to the end and continue the conversation.

It's one of the slowest, most boring anime I have ever watched. The whole first half of the anime is about the game developer guy trolling them all along, he was playing too. The second half of the anime is about the main character hitting on his own sister on another online game.

My only issue with the show after watching it during begin to end of simulcast was:
This is only my view, it was a somewhat okay story but at least felt better then same burn out crap harem anime or the love story with the super rude character being a main love interest. I could see why the younger crowd would get hyped about SoA though.

agreed.

You have to keep watching, the show is fantastic, but to be honest, after episode 14... it just went down. But i'm sure a god majority of people will agree.
