I personally didn't think it was as good as people hyped it up to be, I mean sure it wasn't bad (I watched first season Second season was just bad...) But many people just say how great it is, Idk what are you're guys opinion?

Because they probably haven't watched anything better, or they just never knew about the second story arc.

I know people who have and they still say its so good, Maybe its that thing where people say its good so you think "Well someone told me it was good so it will be" My friend puts it above so many other romances, maybe thats why people like it.

I liked because even though it surely wasn't amazing, it was still fun to watch. It was one of my first anime, so I guess it could just be that though.

SAO was filled with cliches. Experienced movie goers, anime watchers, and book readers kind of get fed up with cliches. However for a lot of people who have not seen these cliches happen a dozen times over, it was novel.

Look at how popular Frozen is, and that movie is extremely formulaic. However, you would have to have seen the formula used to death before you are able to notice that it is formulaic.

I personally enjoyed how the characters where trapped in the game and their lives were at risk — just like in the second season as well. Their pointless i'm-in-a-game fights aren't that fun, though..

SAO was entertaining to watch. Too many people hate SAO or say it was bad because it's trendy. Every anime and story for that matter is filled with cliches but it's popular to hate on something everyone else hates on. Did SAO have flaws? No doubt it did but it was still a well received and very popular anime. Too may "critics" that regurgitate what others tell them.

Im not mad about the cliches its more because people say its the "best" and theres so much hype for it when its just another anime, ah well opinions don't matter right?

Hi,

Sorry for the close, but there's actually a huge thread for SAO over at http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumtopic-766625/sword-art-online-discussions, with people posting both pro and con about the show. Please feel free to join in there to see why some people like it, and others, not so much!
