Mother's Rosario is the only good thing about SAO and I'm surprised it was written in a compelling way. So much that I suspect that Reki Kawahara didn't write it, but rather someone else. But that's just me being mistrusting of the series, so yeah, haha.

Given that it was among the latest of the stories adapted to the anime, the more logical conclusion is that he had simply matured as a writer by that point.

True. I haven't read Alicization arc in SAO to know for sure. A friend told me it was decent to slightly good.

Subaru has more leadership and Teamwork potential than Kiritu.

The villains in Re Zero are far superior.

I never noticed Betelgeuse acting in a way that one could call him a pervert.

If you like Sword Art then you would probably love Logon Horizon

Not really.
I liked Log Horizon a lot more than SAO.
Which makes sense because I like world building political stories more than power fantasy romances.

I forced myself to finish SAO and dropped Re:Zero. I will never again force myself to watch an anime I don't enjoy.

You think I'd subject myself to continuously lurking in this thread? I'm not that much of a masochist.

I liked them both. They each offer a different kind of story experience. Pretty sure I win because I had the most overall enjoyment.

Judging by a lot of the comments I've seen in this thread I think SAO was really negatively affected by the extra seasons, they seriously should have just ended the series after the first season. It's pretty obvious everything from second season to SAO II was blatant fan service. And since it's the topic of discussion i won't say Re:zero isn't guilty of pandering to fan service occasionally as well. I just think that the comparison becomes hard to judge fairly when you factor in SAO's longer run.

If you were to judge SAO season 1 and Re:zero as it is now you'd have a better discussion. I'm not so sure either would be a shoe in for the better anime. To be honest now that I think about it the two actually do have a lot of similarities in terms of source material (both starting relatively small in terms of web novel stories before being made into LN / mangas).

I'd have to put my money on Re:zero though, in terms of development and pacing it probably faired better. The fan service wasn't even that bad, it was actually done rather tongue in cheek and almost came across as satire to a certain extent. SAO had some issues with pacing, towards the end of the first season you could tell things were just rushed forward to wrap up the main arc in time. Character development in SAO was also non-existent, and monologues consisted of taking characters ideals and basically shoving them down your ear holes. So yeah, needless to say I had some issues with SAO, whereas I really enjoyed Re:zero and thought it was a pretty fresh take on a concept that had seemingly dried up.
