it will be fine until season 2, then it will lose popularity fast because season 2 stinks.

I suspect it'll start out doing pretty well, and lose a chunk of viewers after around episode 7 or 8 when is starts becoming obvious that whole "if you die in the game, you die in real life" premise doesn't actually play that large a role in the show.

That being said, it maintains a pretty decent pace of action across the entire show and it looks nice, so I'm sure it'll do pretty decently overall.

Maybe if we get the third season but i agree the show may lose people in the second season.

Edit of course i was a toonami fan back when it first started...so what do i know...im old


It has only had 1 season bro.


I counted the two arcs (Aincrad and Alfheim) as seperate seasons. If you believe that was one season then i mean season 2, if you agree with me then season 3. Not really sure if there is a right answer here, but if there is, i will stand corrected.


1 season, 2 cour, 2 arcs. 4..ish.. novels.

Watching one time is enough for me. This is one of the anime I would not recommend for my friends. I would rather tell them to read the LNs instead of watching the anime.

People Saying it will be horrible Season 2, I really dont see kids acting as anal as those people who Break down Anime piece by piece likes it is an english project.

I remember back when I was a kid watching all the shows on Toonami, I didn't give a crap shit about the Story line as long as it had some crazy action.

Like G gundam, If you watch it now its a bunch of random shananigans untill like the last 5-10 min where they fight in Gundams, For some reason as a kid, It seemed like there was more action but the reality it was just at the end of the show.

Oh And I forgot the Mini Romance/Harem factor. I feel like SAO online has enough distractions/ Wow factors where the ordinary toonami only anime lover will bust a nut over for eternity.

I feel like Crunchy Roll anime lovers are a bit different from the Casual toonami lovers. Who only get their feed of anime from toonami.

Idk, do you guys feel the audience is the same?

Of course it'll do well. Although SAO has plenty of flaws, it's a fun show to watch.

How do you guys think the reception is going to be.

Do you think its going to be the DBZ of todays Toonami or not do that well?



I HATE my life. Your thread is actually what reminded me that it was premiering tonight....and where I'm located I've already missed it.

edit: I'll never understand why people hated SAO so much either. Yeah, colleges around the world are probably not going to be discussing the psychological aspects of online gaming SAO presented and stuff like that, but it really is a enjoyable anime to just watch lol.

Still, at 2am though. Well maybe the trailer they've been showing on Adult Swim all week might bring in some viewers.
