SAO is great, and anyone who says there is a lack if character development needs their head checked...Kirito is a prime example of this.

Also SAO is far superior to the steaming pile of crap that is Accel World lol.


I'm pretty sure Kirito is oen of the mist hated male protagonists of all time because of his lack of development.
I havn't seen Accel World but .I may have liked SAO if Klein had been the character to go into Gun Gale instead of SAO'S Jesus character who hasn't evolved since episode 4. .Hack and Log Horizon do the stuck in online game more.
Log Horizon doesn't throw away it's own rules for the power of love and .Hack//Sign deals with questions of being real
and if escaping to online world to avoid domestic abuse was the right thing to do.

Plus both had better design, sound, and characters overall.

I hope you're not joking because I actually agree with this. I kind of dropped it after watching 2 episodes, couldn't get into it at all.

SAO was... extremely amateur as a story. After you watch a lot of anime, read a lot of books, etc... It becomes blatantly obvious just how amateur of a story it was. Now, if that was the end of it, there would be no problem. It's entertaining enough on it's own, and it's stupid enough to also spawn one of the funniest parody series on the internet.

However, the problem comes from it's popularity. Fans of a series often say that people like to hate anything that is popular. With SAO that is partially true. There are a lot of people who genuinely think that SAO is the best anime story ever written, and they are very vocal with this opinion. The issue is though, that SAO, while having an entertaining premise and likable characters, has shit character development, shit plot development, it's pretty much shit in every technical aspect of story telling. So you have a lot of people making an anime with many very noticeable flaws high profile, the backlash is going to be large. Other really popular anime such as One Piece, Hunter x Hunter, Stein's Gate, Full Metal Alchemist, may have their haters, but they are no where as numerous as the SAO haters. That is because those anime, while not for everyone, utilize very solid story telling techniques. When you complain about them, you complain that they are boring (not for you) not that they are incredibly stupid.

I guess you could say I view SAO like the fast food of anime. Enjoyable, but not very nutritious.

I am also one of the very few people who enjoyed the Alfheim arc. I love Suguha and Kirito's relationship lol, it was so much fun to watch. Much more interesting to me than Kirito and Asuna which was basically the wish fulfillment waifu pairing.

I'll agree with that somewhat. I kind of felt like Haru experienced character degradation throughout the show. Like he started off shit, and then just became even more rancid as the show went on. It's the polar opposite of Kirito who started out a god, and just became more godlike.
Accel World was like antithesis to SAO, just in all the wrong ways.

While I burn with hatred of SAO and agree with alot of what you said the only relationship that made sense was Suguha and Kirito at least they had history while Asuna was willing to commit suicide if he died after sleeping next to him under a tree for a hour.
There relationship was so vomit inducing. She loved him so much after that nap that she was somehow able to use the power of love to override the game rules.

I'd say this pretty much covers it. If you enjoy it, that's cool. If you really enjoy it, that's cool too. The problem comes it when you have people who do enjoy, say, MacDonalds elevating it as if it were some sort of grand top level cuisine. People who have been around the block and who have tasted many different foods are likely to chafe at that, just like we see with people who elevate SAO as top tier anime.

Definitely a good analogy/metaphor/whatever. To put Accel World into that then, I'd say it's like Buffalo Wild Wings, which while still fast food, is of a somewhat healthier variety, and has an adult side to it as well (the bar). Now, that's not saying Accel World is say, a 5-star restaurant or even a Red Lobster, but it's definitely not so bad that having it many many times over would be bad for your health (the anime industry). Now, if we want to talk 5-star restaurant light novel-based anime, then that's definitely Re:Zero. It's fine cuisine. Basically, people should work their way up the anime food chain. SAO is entry level, then you can do Accel World and Danmachi, followed probably be A Certain Magical Index and GATE, finally ending up on Re:Zero. That seems like a pretty decent food chain

Also, let it be known that aside from SAO, which I only enjoy for the action scenes and the spawning of the Abridged, I've thoroughly enjoyed the rest of those series I listed, so it's not me playing favorites, but rather evaluating the presentation of each series based on things such as the development presented in the shows, the plot holes present, world development included, etc. Danmachi may rise or fall soon though as I'm starting the LN's soon, probably tomorrow night if I can finish Volume 8 of Index tonight, so depending on how different the show is from the anime, it may rise or fall in my eyes. Also excluded from the evaluations is anything that happens in the novels past the current stopping point in the shows, so no space elevator arc or anything like that is included in my placement of Accel World. Heck, if those parts were animated and not butchered, Accel World would probably be higher classed on my list, really.

It got me playing an old mmo again, which was fun while that lasted.

I don't know if this has been posted anywhere before, but if you've watched SAO's Aincrad arc in its entirety, whether you like SAO or not, I think you'll find this amusing. This isn't safe for school or work, however.
