So I just ran into this anime called No Game No Life (Thanks to CrunchyRolls awesome random show button) and i loved how it had that same kind of vibe of being inside a game like SAO. Maybe it was just that first seen but the feeling stuck with me and it made me wonder how you guys and gals would rate the two. It is a little unfair since SAO has a more develop story line but still , feel free to vote and voice your thought!

Easily, No Game, No Life.

However I think a better comparison would be SAO or .Hack/anything but .Hack wins that also unless you chose Legend Of Twilight Bracelet

Oh yes how could i forget about .Hack . Its been a while since i seen that show But yeah i wanted to compare these two because they have their own little thing going that makes them amazing. Id keep watching both if they kept making episodes. And as for Legends Of Twilight Bracelet i have not seen it yet!

I prefer Log Horizon. NGNL is better than SAO imo, only one season, but that one season is more interesting than anything after the first season of SAO. Kirito is just too Marty Stu for me. I do hope they make more NGNL but prefer Log Horizon.

Don't Legend Of the Twilight Bracelet is horrible. It's a disgrace.


Also I wasn't talking about just .Hack//Sign considering there is so much .Hack. The shows, the games, the movies, the mangas, the novels, and the specials.

However .Hack is the only one where the main character is trapped in the game.

I'm not a fan.

But I think both of them have really neat artworks and animation sequences.

Oh ahaha sorry I never think of Quantum due to my distaste for everything about it due to it being a femlae rehash of Twilight Bracelet (god I hate Twilight Bracelet so much). They went girly over going Chibi.
Every copied appearanced of Kite and Blackrose after the games is just a insult to their characters imo.

It is funny how much Episode 1 is the exact same as episode 3 of SAO.

I may hate SAO but I thought the end of episode 3 did show a faint flame of a good anime before it extinguished for me.

I go to SAO when I want action/drama and I go to NGNL when I want strategy/comedy.

NGNL I liked the beginning of sword art online, but ever since Alfhelm, it's been going slightly downhill... Though i heard the next arc in light novel is pretty good

NGNL is terrible low brow pandering that is intellectually bankrupt and egregiously masturbatory beyond what I can limit. SAO, while closer to a 0 than a 10 for me, wasn't nearly as bad as NGNL.


Here's what pisses me off.

NGNL is nothing more than low brow pandering self serving garbage. It is a masturbatory fantasy that caters to losers and the such because they're easily exploitable. What really pisses me off is how characters like Shiro and Stephanie Dola get used and or abused by the male protagonist Sora or the story in order to fulfill the purpose of "Hey guys, look what are badass protaganist is doing!" My least favorite trope is when females get one upped, disrespected, or otherwise diminished in their role by their male counterparts or the story, which NGNL accomplishes pretty well with its female cast. Shiro could easily be replaced with a cardboard cutout half a time, and serves nothing more than a fantasy little sister for the losers to fap their hand too, or a deus ex machina machine with her MAD SKILLZ, and she is easily the most "significant" female character. Yet she feels more like a side character if anything. Steph is a butt monkey and Ms.Fanservice, alongside Jibril. None of these females have anything to contribute to the story that doesn't concern their personality. There is little room for personality. It's all trash dedicated to making the viewer/Sora feel good about themselves.
The Game have no logic to them half the time. (Seriously, Assassin? Getting the useless Dola to do something based on a nonsensical gamble? No thanks.) I don't mind the if if the how is good, but unfortunately it is not good. the rules egregiously bend themselves to keep the fantasy train moving.
The shallow attempt at humanity given to Blank by giving them flaws is just sad. These flaws need not be overcome; they barely come into play at all, and are usually only shown in a comedic light. The primary purpose is to say "Hey, these losers are winning! Don't feel so bad about being a loser!" Yet it is impossible. You can't be king of you are afraid of losing, or being in a crowded place. You can't be king on intelligence alone. Yet it shows them succeeding. Why? Just to perpetuate the fantasy that losers can be winner. Um, no. Losers will always be losers if they can't overcome their flaws. You can't have your cake and eat it too.

What I am trying to say is, this is offers nothing stimulating for the intellectual part of me, and is basically Twilight for gamers everywhere.
