In that video that distinguishes anime from cartoons (that i disagree with), it would show clips of Spongebob to represent American cartoons. Then it went into saying how anime had epic stories. I stopped watching, but still that video circulates around the internet. I grew up watching American cartoons as well as anime and i didn't really notice any difference until middle school. So i have a strong attachment to both but I'd say i love anime way more. Still i thought about the first season of SAO, then the first season of Spongebob Squarepants, and i have to say with no smirk but with sincerity, the first season of Spongebob beats Sword Art Online's first season in my eyes. I can give give examples as to why, but all in all it'd be waste since all the examples are just why Spongebob is funnier, since that's what Spongebob tried to do. I'd just be listing the jokes and i think analyzing a joke defeats the purpose of a joke. Now before you say "don't compare the two, they are completely different", it's fun to compare different works against each other. It doesn't have to be competitive like how i am making now, but comparing different works gives you different insight on each piece. Things you wouldn't have noticed it otherwise. I'm posting this cause that video kinda irked me. Anyways, when you're in college, try telling your professor that you didn't do your thesis or essay because the two studies or works of art are completely different. My opinion isn't objective, neither is yours, there's no right or wrong answer here unfortunately. Its more like one option is more cultured than the other. as which is cultured it depends where and what time you are in. I think they're both uncultured and i enjoyed some of SAO, but jeez Spongebob is hilarious. I'm not here to prove spongebob and thus cartoons are better than anime but rather just these two in particular, which do you prefer?

I was late to SAO. but I enjoyed it. and as for all the Spongebob fans in the world I got two words for you................SUCK IT. that show sucks. it always has since day one. it ripped off Ren and Stimpy so bad and was only a 1/3 of what it was. Spongebob is the reason kids are gay and stupid. Spongebob was fruity in the booty. I could go on bescause Spongebob will always be a top hated cartoon in my eyes but ill stop

Spongebob is infinitely better than Sword Art Online. Only fools would disagree.

Its all about how you see it, from a real critic's perspective Spongebob has the depth and dialogue (script) about as good as Patrick's brain. There's definitely lots wrong with SB but it tons of fun to watch I think I can say the same for SAO. I can also say SB should have been much better than it was, the low budget scenes with the pirate guy are rather weak considering the gold mine that they ended up making. SB is good for laughs, SAO is commonly mistaken for an shounen/adventure type anime, I much more enjoy it as a romance (despite what became of it today).

Aside from the fact that this is comparing apples to oranges, I'd have to go with Spongebob. The first season is SAO was decent until the ALO arc started. It was an alright apple, nothing special, but it quickly began to rot once the first bite was taken. I prefer apples over oranges, but the early seasons of Spongebob were such good oranges. These oranges were carefully cultivated and given such rich nutrition to grow. Juicy orange > stale apple. Therefore, first season Spongebob > first season SAO.

Well, Spongebob was better around 2002, and then got worse, and is still terrible. I go with SAO

Someone needs to count the days until the next SAO thread, and then the next one after that... Jesus Christ...

Be that as it may, I refuse to believe that anyone would come into this thread, thinking that this isn't a ridiculous comparison. I know SAO gets compared with anything even vaguely similar to it, all the time, and stupid as that may be, this comparison doesn't even make a little sense. Never mind the fact that they are absolutely nothing alike, but one is so blatantly for kids, whilst the other deals with issues you'd hope wouldn’t be common in kids shows.

SAO is entertaining, but it's writing is unbridled Mary Sue - Power Fantasy fan fiction. That is why it has so many fans and so many haters. There are a lot of people out there who love to just indulge in the main character constantly winning at life every second of every episode, other people find that to be extremely uninspired writing of which the only purpose is to stroke the reader's and the writer's respective egos.

Spongebob is comedy, it's funny, enough said.
