Dude! SAO is old news. The kids are all over One Piece, Gintama or whatever these days.

P.S Dragon Ball Super is even more overrated

It's a shitty copy of .hack

but it's nothing like .hack//

not to mention the two series were written at the exact same time, so any similarities there may be, however small, are pretty much just a big coincidence.


i know its a damn old thread but no way in hell is this true. .hack was written before 2002 and got released that year with more than one animation :'D SAO was not even planned at that time, first novel was released 2009. ALSO the Nervegear looks a lot like the last version of the interface gear or what it was called (forgot the name)

Bcuz i think the guy i quoted was serious in what he wrote and the comments after him, didn't even correct his nonesense but yeh i knew i revived the thread for not much of a reason I just didn't want to let his comment stand as it is becuz its completely made up :'D. first time I ever revived a thread xd, must be because I was bored and have no cigarettes left and can only go to an shop in 2 hours.

Have nothing against SAO btw. I Enjoyed it.
For me SAO is more action less feelings
.hack more feelings way less action

Man, this was a highly entertaining thread to read. It's funny that this debate is still carrying on, even to this day.

I'll tell you though, regardless of whether people think it's good or bad, SAO is extremely popular both in America and Japan. What I find odd about it though is that, if we talk about it in terms of story telling quality / theme, there are actually quite a few other anime out there just like SAO. None of those shows get nearly as much recognition, however. It makes me wonder, what is the deciding factor for things like these.

SAO first volume was written in 2002 for a competition but exceeded the word count.

So Reki Kawahara put it online, in 2002 as a webnovel.

When the Reki Kawahara entered and won the competition with accel world in 2008, the offer was made to publish earlier written works.

Stories and books can exist before recognized publication. So many light novels now have existed for years as popular web novels online before the author is approached by publishes and their books get print release.

I know this too i mean wikipedia is not easy to find over google :'D. I could never read the original and never found it too, heard it got deleted later on and thats why there is no copy of it. Not sure if this is true tho. What i thought was if it was deleted - maybe because of changes the editors wanted to make. - or bcuz it was a totally different story,
- Just my guess - but i think 2002 it was a totally different story than nowadays. IF IT REALLY WAS ->

Mobile phones were not as normal as today, there were no touchscreens
(don't come with IBM, that sheeet costed over 1000euro and not even IBM stuff had those bcuz they were slower than normal phones)

Basically that is what gave him advantage in the 2009 version. 2009 everyone had a mobile phone, almost everyone a smart phone, electronic devices were waaaaaaaaaay more advanced, so even tho he was going further than our devices could possibly go in sao, he wouldn't have gone as far as he did 2002. Of course its possible tho, history had a lot of visionairs.

But anyways I STILL want to read the 2002 version so if anyone has the 2002 novel translated somewhere i would love to get a source, maybe it would even be okay in japanese would have to ask a friend to translate tho, or atleast to let him read it and compare with the published version. (I'm not asking for links btw)

I think it has to do with how marketable SAO is. The timing of its release couldn't have been any better. It came out at a time when the young generation practically grew up glued to their screens playing video games. Then all of a sudden an anime appears that takes place in a futuristic MMO with something large at stake in the story (everyone's lives) and you get the recipe for an anime that appeals to a new generation of anime fans and is easy to get into even for people who have never seen an anime prior to it. It also seems to have sparked interest in a wave of game-related anime. If SAO had come out 10 years earlier, it probably wouldn't have been so popular and would've possibly even been overshadowed by .hack//Sign in a demographic that was very niche at the time.
