I notice that there is a lot of people that just don't like Sword Art Online and i don't exactly know why. I thought it might be the whole "it's to popular" but that's not really a good reason to hate any anime. Could someone tell me why there is so much hate towards S.A.O?

EDIT: I don't know when this got 24000...... WAIT 45000.. nope 75000 views and 690+ replies but it makes me happy :3 and thanks for all your thoughts!

I really like Sword Art, but people really dislike the ALO arc. Some people don't like how they added romance.

don't understand why people use the reasoning, "because it's popular". I like a lot of popular anime like HxH and Free!.

I have my own reasons for not liking SAO. i didn't like how the characters was panned out. the dialogues didn't captivate me in any way. I didn't like how they focused on asuna making bentos and sandwiches... (more sexist ideals). I didn't like that they spent several episodes on them going on a honeymoon when they're supposed to be fighting for their life.


You asked for my opinion, and you have it. don't quote me saying i'm being harsh. it's my honest opinion. i'm not telling anyone to not watch it. if you like it, others negative criticism shouldn't matter.

I love cooking, and I'm male. Am I breaking sexist ideals?


I rather like it as a whole, I just didn't like the whole attempted rape thing at the end of ALO and GGO.

Personally I liked the Kirito/Asuna romance. Don't know why but it really drew me in for some reason. Then they went into the ALO story arc where Asuna went from competent fighter to damsel in distress. I was hoping that the SAO 2 series would redeem it, but that didn't really happen. I'm really only watching now because I've come this far an I might as well finish it. I don't hate it, but I think it wasted a lot of it's potential.

only if you do it for other people, and not just yourself

I would if someone wanted me to, but I only have myself to cook for at the moment so....yay! I'm within the ideals of sexism. Awesome.

Yes. Please. That would be hilarious.

I think it just turned into a popular meme at one point. I really couldn't tell you what the mindset of the haters was since I have never hated it.

For me things really reached a head when it was well into 2013 and people were still hijacking any thread that ever mentioned the anime to spread the hate. A lot of people's excuses to hate it so late into the game was because they had to be a counter to the "rabid fandom." Which made no sense since I hadn't seen anyone gushing about the series since it had ended a year prior.

And now it's 2014 and GGO has a more subdued fandom, but a lot of the haters brought their pitchforks back out and regularly stalk all the threads. It's funny since I see so many of the same names posting the same hate rants that they had two years ago. Why can't people just get over it and move on when it's obviously not a series that they enjoy

Kirito is too powerful. I love SAO, it's my fave anime, but I accept this as true. I think there is a logical reason he became so powerful, but he is too powerful. Tell me, would you rather watch Kirito or Klein as a main character?

Side-note- Am I wrong for loving Heathcliff as a character?

Aren't those people called "hipsters" or something?

Men are pigs. The worst part is not that they are pigs... the worst part is that they don't realize they're pigs. (Not aiming at that at Phersu or any man on CR though, the men on CR are perfectly good men).


Watch episode 3 Orenchi no furo jijo, tentacle rape at its best.
