Post Reply What do you think about SAO?
Posted 4/9/17
I think SAO is good for a starting anime. It was the first anime I ever watched and from future shows I watched, I learned that it had the basic anime components. It had a fast and interesting plot, beautiful graphics, and a lot of fan service. It isn't the greatest anime if I think about it now but it was enough to get me hooked on the genre so I think that says something. If you have high standards, you probably won't go for it, though.

I liked it okay, but I am NOT a weeaboo. But I never understood the hate for Asuna. And Yui was adorable. But I am an idiot so what do I know?

I loved it, but I can understand why some wouldn't. To each their own...

I enjoyed the first portion of SAO the most. The second portion was lackluster, and a bit unnerving at times. The last few episodes of the first season were exceptionally surreal. I also found the Kirito/Asuna relationship to be forced and it lacks actual depth. It's almost false, in a sense. There's no raw emotion and/or chemistry between the duo. Conceptually, I thought SAO did a great job. However, the execution of it all seemed a bit underwhelming. I mean, the fight scenes were cool and all but it was still lackluster.

I thought it was very entertaining, with great art, a great concept for the first arc, and poor plot development and characterization.

I think season one is good, but the second season was trash

I loved it! The second season kinda sucked - they turned Asana into a wimp. Didn't like that! I liked series for the time it was made it had a great story, romance etc. It was what really got me back into anime. Can't wait to see the new movie...

I mostly think "Oh, $DIETY... not Another lame thread about SAO where someone wants to hate on people who like it".

Give it up already.

I love SAO.
I never was a fan of Asuna, she's always kind of... irked me.
Sinon is really cool though, and seeing her struggles in the real world was heart-breaking.
I'm not a fan of AlfHeim. It was kind of boring other than the last two episodes, really.
I also found the whole Excalibur arc really forced and pointless.
I really like the chemistry to Sinon and Kirito. The writers are just adding another girl to Kirito's harem, but I think that she's better for Kirito than Asuna is,
Just my thoughts.

it was a lackluster adaptation that left a lot to be desired. it wasn't amazing, but it wasn't horrible either.

people just love to bitch and moan about things when they don't suit their tastes, or they don't turn out how they want them to.

season 2 was also done much better than season 1, and I hope that if/when/whatever they get around to doing season 3, that they do it properly and not halfass it by rushing it out.. even though I know they're going to do just that.

Since I play a lot of MMORPG's, i really enjoyed the first story arc when they were actually in SAO. After that it kind of went downhill. Even though SAOII wasn't that good it still made me want to invent Virtual Reality MMORPG's so bad. I would play the shit out of them.

it gets a lot of hate, and . . . well it deserves at least SOME of that hate i guess? i don't know if i've ever talked to an sao fan who wholeheartedly loves every aspect of it. there always seems to be at least one significant part of the story that they dislike if not outright loathe (usually it's the fairy dance arc). but because it's popular - which is inevitable since it checks off so many of the mainstream appeal boxes regardless of writing quality - a lot of people also kind of tend to focus on it as a representation of everything wrong with anime

which i can kind of understand, but it's also a pretty huge exaggeration? like there's some pretty abysmal stuff out there if you look at everything that's airing in any given season. as weird as it sounds to say, sao is still probably above average for anime in general - and by harem standards in particular, if you want to classify it as one, it's miles above most of the other stuff in that genre which tends to just be identical unwatchable garbage. so like, i honestly think i have more respect for someone who can at least admit that they appreciate some parts of it than someone who just wants to jump on the hate bandwagon because that's the cool thing to do. it's fine if it doesn't personally appeal to you, and if you want to enjoy it but consistently find yourself frustrated by all the dumb parts i'm right there with you, but acting like it has no value whatsoever just seems kind of unnecessary to me

personally i love the settings and the character designs and the soundtrack and it managed to at least keep up the illusion of competent writing for most of the first arc, so as much as it continually disappoints me i'm in too deep to give up now. the author has a whole lot of interesting ideas even if he can't distinguish the good ones from the awful ones, and that at least makes it better than a show that's just boring to me. if it gets another season (which will probably happen soon going by what i've heard about the movie) i know i'd eagerly watch the whole thing even if i just end up complaining about it half the time =o

Dudes, it was five years ago. Can't we just get over it already?



I don't think so.
SAO is still going,
The movie just went out before a month or so
