ninjitsuko I guess that's one way of looking at it.
He was able to isolate that the "Death Gun" player was a member of the Laughing Coffin group from SAO. Which then proceeded to determine the culprits behind "Death Gun". He could have done significantly better, sure. But if you think about it from the perspective of a 17-year-old kid who hasn't been trained in any type of criminal investigation and has only taken a few classes on "engineering/development" ... I think he did alright.

Keep in mind that Japan has been the type to throw around anime characters as political mascots in some way or another to encourage teenagers/youth who are otherwise near-otaku/NEET level to be proactive.


Agree completely with your assessment of Kirito. With regard to making Kirito a political mascot for something, it's funny that people here just don't understand Japanese culture considering the number of obsessed here. An example:

Remember, this is basically advertising for both SAO and the Japanese governmental organizations that are involved, so as with all advertising they have to change things up once in awhile to keep things relevant and interesting for their target audience.


This is kind of like French law enforcement advertising with Inspector Clouseau though. >.>



I'd love it if they did that in all honesty.


Also, notworthy, are we really faulting a character that everyone calls perfect for not being good enough?

It makes as much sense as the U.S. Marines making Bugs Bunny a Master Sergeant.

How does that work? Bugs was used in a ton of propaganda in support of the war effort. He probably was the biggest seller of war bonds after those guys who raised the flag on Iwo Jima.

In the episode "Super Bugs," the ending scene was him in a marine uniform marching into the background after spending most of the episode as a fake Superman. The marines made him an honorary Master Sergeant for giving them the free publicity and in a way stating the Marines are better than a super hero.

Yeah. Thats my point. Bugs really helped out the military. If any cartoon character is going to be made an honourary soldier it should be him.

Kind of but not really. Besides, if I remember correctly, Inspector Clouseau always solved the case and got his man, or woman, in the end just like Kirito does, so your analogy really doesn't work with this.


My analogy works just fine. Clouseau always solved the case, but that was the joke. He was totally incompetent but he would somehow manage to solve cases through absurd luck and coincidences. -.-




Um, no, not exactly. Kirito doesn't go around breaking things and wearing weird disguises and being completely incompetent in what he does. He actually thinks things through about what's going on to make educated conclusions about who's behind it all. Inspector Clouseau solved the case mostly through dumb luck. So no, your analogy doesn't work because their personalities are totally different. If you want a better or more informative explanation as to why, ninjitsuko's posts in this thread have already explained it and I'm not repeating the same thing in this post.

Or you could acknowledge and accept the fact it was a joke. Instead of pedantically arguing in the defense of of a fictional character. -.-

Kirito is awful at cyber security. >.>

If he was good at cyber security SAO would have just been a 2 episode OVA.


nope wouldn't have even been a series he would've noticed that death device built into the devices notified authorities and non of that would've happened


If that NERV Gear helmet was sent to the UL (Underwriters Laboratory), they would have spotted it, pronto, and would have given it a very bad safety rating. They probably would have got the government involved and would have got the government to force the company to do a massive recall of those VR helmets to do safety modifications (remove the microwave transmitters).

Or you could have just said that it was a joke in the first place and not added anymore to your original response to me and then we wouldn't have ended up arguing about it. Either way, I'm done discussing this with you.

Nice bit of stunt marketing for the movie, that's about it.

Let's be honest if anyone from the SAO franchise should have been hired by the Japanese Government to do cyber security it should have been Yui. She's the one actually doing the heavy lifting when it came to anything remotely tech related.

Sounds like Terminator 6 has found its screenplay.

It can't be any worse a plot then Terminator Genisys.

....True. In fact it'd be a step up all things considered.
