Its a simple fact that most of the time, when a popular anime is hated on, there is something extremely wrong with it.
I don't think i can go a day without hearing something negative about SAO. I go on the forums, SAO is bashed. I talk to people about anime, SAO is bashed. I think about SAO, SAO is bashed. Do you guys realize that an anime like Naruto or Bleach that used to be hated immensely barely generates discussion on that topic? Its just SAO. I honestly think its a record for most hated anime, because its so popular and that bad. If it was swept under the rug like say...BTOOOM! people wouldn't need to talk about because it would be established that it wasn't anything special. Same thing with a bunch of other popular anime. Just imagine if Mushibugyo was as popular as SAO how much hate would come about.


I've seen people go off about Snk/AoT as well. My favorite was someone saying that the characters were cardboard cutouts. Some people automatically dislike anything popular.


I wouldn't say that but they are incredibly shallow especially Eren and Mikasa two of the three leads, Armin, Jean and Erwin had more development and depth in their characters than those two.

"Criticism" implies that you own/wrote or otherwise were responsible for the content. Criticism should be held to the author/mangaka or even director (if he/she changed content from original source). Coming into every thread and bashing people for liking a form of entertainment is not "criticism" it's trolling.


As consumers of media we have every right to criticize any and all media, if I don't like the direction of a story or any of the characters I have every right to say so, If only the creators criticized their work there would be no such thing as constructive criticism. People can point out flaws in an anime without bashing on it or the fanbase because NO anime is flawless.

What you are missing is that the word "criticism" is thrown around as a catch all phrase to imply that someone's tastes are worse than yours. It's called personal taste for a reason. There's one thing going "wow I didn't like this week's episode.. I didn't like a, b, c and d and it's likely going to make my experience of enjoying this series more".. and another thing entirely going "zomg anyone who like SAO are (insert latest decorative insult involving body parts and some abuse of verbs)".. That's not criticism that's bashing. What's going on with SAO are fans who thought the show was good (thus the reason it was "popular") and others who INSIST on posting on the threads to belittle those who happen to like it. There's no "criticism" there.. it's bashing people because they don't fit the same tastes as you. if it were as simple as constructive criticism where people point out "man it would be a whole lot better if x, y and z" but that's not at all what's happening. Otherwise there wouldn't be like 10 threads on the hate-mongering.

My problem with SAO is they expected me to believe that a human being could survive for over a month with no food or water. Kind of takes the wind out of a show when even the common knowledge is crap.


There are people in India or some other country surviving with no food, water and no help, One person survived for ten years.


no food and no water for 10 years? please go back to school


If you don't believe me, Go search up your self then prove me wrong. We will see who's wrong. Also it's India, Half of them can hold there hunger since they been a starving country in the hot sun.

I can see why people hated Guilty Crown after it was finished. Mostly because of the alleged "plot holes"
I personally LOVED the premise for this series and where they were taking it in the second half
However it could've had a BOAT load more character development.
On the flip side it could've been a BOAT load worse

Imagine, if you will, if this series were taken a LOT more serious with a second season
I would have watched it and loved every minute of it

I also hate how people were talking sh*t about GC: Lost Christmas before it was even released
Have some faith people c'mon!

I wonder why some people keep posting the same shit about the same animes w/the same tones.

People will always feel a need to perpetuate the experiences with the strongest emotional impression whether it's for the better or worse. Take note how people are not just "not interested" in the anime that they repeatedly talk shit about--- there's something specific in the anime that gave them a strong emotional response that they've tied to a bad personal experience in their life, and that is what drives them batshit crazy. Basically, they're just crying about their own life.

Ive never seen guilty crown or mirai nikki (ive read the manga though) so i cant say much with them howver SNK I did enjoy I continue to read the manga and I liked the series, the only problem with the series is they dragged it out for so long but they were trying to get all the content from the manga into the anime which i 100% respect because almost no series ever does that

SAO however was good, atleast the first season.



Anyways that's my opinion let me know if you agree

This happens to everything, and if i might guess its because people want to be uniqe, they want to think they are diffrent, they dont want people whom they might not like to enjoy the same things as they do, and this is something that i find sad, because ive heard so many bad things about many diffrent animes, movies, books, mangas, bands you name it, but i dont let that stop me, i watch it, read it, listen to it myself, before i judge it. As they say, dont judge a book by its cover, because of this ive found many hidden jewels to put it that way, its amazing what some people will hate on just for the sake of hating, being uniqe or straight out feel like they fit in with the crowed, but thats just wrong because you must experiance it yourself before you can judge it and who know, it might be what youve always been looking for :)

Sorry for the big mess but hopefully you got the point.
im not the best when it comes to explaining how i think but i like to try

But ALOT of the criticisms of SAO have been completely legitimate and structured, just go to Gigguk's review of SAO and most of the comments are normal constructive criticism

This entire theory of hating something due to popularity can be completely turned around. Some people just want to believe so badly that the anime they have invested time into and cared for is good when there are obvious lapses of sheer laziness and self-indulgence, so instead of taking criticism, they pin it on hating it due to popularity, they can't accept the fact that shows they like have serious problems they clearly missed because they just wanted to believe so badly from the moment of inception that the show is going to be good. It's a basic reversal of the Original post question but still very legitimate, I remember when SAO first came out and people wouldn't shut up about it, they were READY to believe that this was going to be a good show, so much so that they couldn't handle it if they were wrong (And boy were they dead wrong), because let's face it, anime wasn't doing that greatly in 2012.

I just don't know why the haters can't move on to other anime that they enjoy and let SAO fans have their fandom in peace.

Is it really so horrible for someone to like the series without the constant need to be educated on why they're somehow wrong in their beliefs.

During its run I was never given the opportunity to have a peaceful conversation about the series with fellow fans without either a troll or a self-righteous hater stepping in to try to take the spotlight in the conversation. Not once. And then after the series ended and everyone moved on to other anime, the hate continued and it has continued to this day.

I don't see the point other than an overt effort to annoy other people. And that's really just being mean spirited. Life is way more fulfilling if you allow yourself to derive pleasure from the things you yourself enjoy than to spend so much time picking things that other people like apart.

SAO was amazing to me in the first few episodes, but once it got going it just kinda lost what made me want to watch it in the first place.

I'm hoping Log Horizon doesn't do that.
