Well, here is my two bits.

I like season 1.0 of SAO better than Log. I like Log better than season 1.5 of SAO.

Reason mostly came down to the second half of SAO became all fanservicey and generic. It lost that emotion and first person perspective from the start of the show.

Log on the other hand has been constantly improving it's characters. They are quite easy to connect with and as we have seen, promote discussion. It is light hearted and enjoyable, not the same level of story as the first half, but it has been consistent and overall, a quality of presentation despite simple animation.

had SAO not sold out for the second half, I would stick with that show. But log's consistency and improvements has lead it to win out in the end for me...

I like both, but if i had to pick one i like better, i would say log horizon beats SAO hands down. sword art online took me a while to get into, the characters them selves you didn't know much about them besides the fact, there in the game, and we are trying to live with that, meanwhile i think log horizon let us know the people more, and the concept is way more deep then SAO as well,

Main thing for people who want to get into one of these and isn't sure which you would prefer:

Log Horizion: It is more of getting used to the idea of living there full time, what happens to you when your there and quests.

Sword art online: I think of it more as a love story, Its a great one at that, the fighting is great but overall I my self didn't like how suddenly, they been in the game 2 years, and we haven't seen how they went through all that as much.

I think if you want more of action and romance, SAO is your type of anime, if you want a really good story line with action, log horizon is your anime.

I my self am into both, but if there was new episodes on at the same time and i had to choose which to watch, log horizon would win

Each is strong in its own way and are too much of an "apples, oranges" situation to really compare.

That said, I go out of my way to get up and watch LH when it is on. SAO? Not so much.

I've watched tons of anime and play tons of MMO's through my life. I would just take both and stop arguing.

There's not really any arguing is the strange bit. Mysteriously civil, if anything.

Only thing I like about SAO is the animation and music. Everything else has to go to Log Horizon.

While i like them both... SAO no question.

1. Shit was real!
Made you scared to think what would happen being stuck in there n possibly die!

2. Characters i actually care about.
in LH no one has drawn me to care if they die or not, not even MC.

3. Goal/Love story.
SAO had a goal, (beat the game n survive/ Rescue your loved one)
LH: politics and use strategy (mainly teaching it thru a lower level char)

4. Emotion.
everyone running around in LH like nothing big has happened... YOU'RE STUCK IN A GAME!
no ones freaking out about it... REALLY!
SAO was an emotional roller coaster: death/ sex/ monsters/ marriages/ children... etc.

i do agree with people saying the fairy arc was sub-par because it was, but i have high hopes for the next season/ arc.

That's my 2 pennies

See I am 8 episodes into SAO right now(so I am more than halfway through the consensus best part of the show) and I just don't really see any of those. Aside from the first one. But it is also real in LH. Sure death isn't permanent like SAO, but it has....other consequences. For #2 I definitely don't agree with SAO having that. I just don't care for the characters that much. Why? Because they have been barely built by this point. And nearly everyone not named Kirito, Asuna, and Klein have died the episode they debuted. Characters actually have shorter life spans in SAO than Attack on Titan(which honestly surprised me)! Which makes it hard to care about these side characters cause I know most will die before the episode ends.

#3 isn't exactly true with LH. They do have a goal, pretty much the same goal as SAO, escape their situation. Unlike SAO, though, they aren't told literally every important facet of their plight so they don't even know what to do to accomplish this goal. So while they try and find how to escape, they have to still live some form of a life.

#4, again you are kind of selling LH short. People were freaking out in LH at first. Until they started building a society, that is, but still they did freak out. And again I am just not that invested in the characters in SAO yet for that to be true with me.

Now can my opinion change on SAO? Sure, it totally can. Just right now I am in the thick of the best part and I just am not seeing it. Don't get me wrong, it is still a good series, just not as good as it was hyped to be.

Suguha! <3 I loved that whole, forbidden feelings of love for Kirito before she found out it was Kirigaya.
