I'll do my favorite anime to make fun of, SwordArt Online: They just turn the servers off. Sure, everyone's dead, but the crisis is over.

Killing a few thousand people like that is not an option though. I am sure they could have slowly disarmed the headsets though. I mean if you think about it they pretty much are just bombs that are dangerous to a single person. If you can disarm a bomb, you should be able to disarm a headset.

I was joking for the most part, you're right of course. In reality though, I'm surprised they couldn't have figured out a way to get into the system and alter the code in a patch update or something.

Of course I'm also surprised he was able to hide that bit of the plan.

Better yet they go along with Bulma's plan and stop Dr. Gero from starting the fucking crisis in the first.

The Tatami Galaxy: Just ask her out, protagonist. Of course, the structure of the anime means that the writers acknowledged and incorporated that solution from the get-go, as it's basically what the whole thing is about.

Angel Beats!: If the cast wasn't all so convinced of their paranoid scenario and realized from the get-go the obvious reason why they're all there, they would have been out of there much more quickly.

I recently started viewing this on Netflix, and thought the same thing.

In the real world, it would be nigh impossible to make a device so tamper proof that a way couldn't be found to safely disable it, especially with the time allowed.

Also, unless the NerveGear also somehow destroyed itself so thoroughly that forensic investigation couldn't reconstruct it, the experts would have had multiple devices to examine. (Remember that a substantial number of people had already died before the in-game announcement was made).


A better "solution" to keep the peril would have been to create a hostage situation: If anyone was forcibly logged out (indicating NerveGear removal) rather than being killed, have the system randomly select and fry the brains of x number of other users. While there would be some parents, loved ones, etc., that would say "Screw other people, do it anyone", they would be guilty of accessory to murder, so incidents of such should be low.

The only way around this would have been to disable everyone's NerveGear simultaneously, which would itself have been nigh impossible.

I think SAO was originally written when the author was 14 years old though. So it makes sense that it would have a bunch of plot holes. On the other hand though, they did decide to publish / animate something written by a 14 year old and it did sell well, so I'm not sure if I should or shouldn't complain.

One Piece - Gold Roger is killed before having time to talk to a crowd of former crew-mates and would-be pirates.. Thus spurring the age of only a few pirates!

Death Note - Light ignored the notebook that fell into the school lawn due to being too intellectual to bother with such trifles.. He went on to be part of a very successful profession and didn't bother wasting his talent on becoming a police officer. Instead, with thanks to his studies, he came up with some intelligent ways to deter crime before it began, without the need for punishment as a first resort. The world didn't change drastically, but it became a slightly better place.

This is how it should have gone.
