To be honest, you should read the LN to really understand this story. They have translated everything to date already. I find it very good.

Read the manga, loved it so much so I read the light novel and loved it even more :)

I was absolutely amazed by the intricate detail and the descriptions of all of the specific magical terms that were in this LN series. This story has great romantic bits, intense action sequences, fun and intriguing characters, societal issues and such an in-depth world that makes me extremely excited for the anime!

I'm curious what arcs the first (hopefully of many) season(s) will cover?

Well, I'll be looking forward to it~

Read the LN. She isn't useless. She's just as OP as the MC.

I actually liked Chihayafuru 2 a little better than the first, but both seasons were great so it doesn't matter.

Mild MKnR source material spoilers talking about characters (not plot):

So I expect I will enjoy the anime well enough.


That he may be but the MC is also the most restricted character in terms of what he can do openly, due to a variety of issues (Innate Talent, Family and job issues etc) - those who are up to date with the LN will know what I mean.

I however find the MC's capabilities refreshing. Particularly if in the next season we get a bunch of anime's with weak pansy male MC this anime and MC will be the holy grail amongst them all. I for one am getting a bit tired of the weak MC shtick. It's been flogged enough.

Confirmed as the next Overrated anime of 2014

also the Mc looks like Blade Master Raven from Elsword, how unoriginal.


First: the bold part shows you have no idea what you're talking about and that you are pulling assumptions out of nowhere.
Second: In what way does the MC look like Raven? The way he wears a white overcoat? Coats that aren't even that similar?


Third: there's a lot of hyped anime going to come out this year, SAO2 is one of them. It may end up over rated this year, sure, but most overrated? Doubt it.

Finally:http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/MartyStu Gary stus.
When reading up about the above you may want to keep in mind Gary Stu=/Powerful protagonist. See also: Common Mary sue traits(Gary stus generally have these as well) http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/CommonMarySueTraits

PS. Why does anyone still care what Hipsters and Elitists think? They hate everything, no?

PPS. The target demographic is teenagers, so not appealing to them wouldn't exactly be in the series' best interests. I don't see why that is a bad thing. Elaborate on that please.

Traits for author-insert characters will vary by author, genre, and culture. But when it comes down to the fundamentals of "a character who is important in the story, possesses unusual physical traits, and has an irrelevantly over-skilled or over-idealized nature" Tatsuya is as perfect a match as Kirito. It's just that difference of feeling between "this is the main character, now you can learn about them" versus "this is the main character, he is perfect in every possible way".

I'm not necessarily panning self-insert fiction, but when there's a black kettle we should call it what it is.

The best ones are the ones who've gone meta and hate hating everything.

Fair enough but with the rash of powerful MCs(maybe it's just me) I'd just like to be sure people aren't automatically assuming things like already capable/powerful MCs are Gary Stus.

I personally have not seen anything about this other than hype on Facebook and now here on CR with the news. But from I have heard it sounds interesting at least.

I'm definitely looking forward to this show. If anything, I will be watching this for LiSA and those uniforms that I really love. I'm hoping that Madhouse treats this show pretty well.

After reading the posts, I'm quite surprised that some people are quickly writing this show off. Yes, the MC is kind of a Gary Stu(and yes it can be annoying sometimes). This show is pretty much about the elite, so its gonna be full of Gary Stus and Mary Sues. However, the MC is also really awesome, if I had to describe him...... well just picture a Zorro, Levi, Claire Stanfield type as your protagonist and you have Tatsuya. However, let me make it clear ,THE MC IS NOT LIKE KIRITO. He has some flaws and they make him pretty interesting. If there is something I don't like about this show its his sister. She literally has no flaws except that she has a thing for her brother which is super annoying, imo, she honestly will be the worst thing about this show.

So after all the fail from Madhouse, I don't have much expectations and someone can quote me on this once this is over.

Apparently there is hype for this show. I personally don't know why and have only read a bit of the manga adaptation. But it has made me curious so I will give it a watch when it premiers.

So apparently this is going to be like the old Fairy Tail on CR? Just saw this on the page/notification:


*Will only be available for 21 days from first air date.


Unless I missed something saying it was for only specific regions or something.
