The abridged parody by SWE is better than the actual anime which will always remind me of the state of the anime industry at the moment.


It is really a "let me fix that for you" version. The pacing is tighter, the characters have actual development, etc. I'm really curious to see how they tackle the next arc.

I think SAO is okay. I don't think it's as bad as people say it is... but I also don't think it's as good as some others say it is.

It's merely okay to me... and I enjoyed a good portion of the first season aside from a few things here or there.

I haven't watched past that though.

I hear you, but it's closer to bad than good. The abridged version does a good job of pointing out what a dick Kirito actually is, while also giving him character development.

If you've watched Season One, you may as well watch Two. The end of that is the best part of SAO.

I am going to repeat an argument, but my least favorite argument when I argue that Kirito wasted time torturing Sughou for nothing more than retribution, they'd say I would do something similar.

That is not a legitimate argument, that simply is an argument against my flawed character. While I understand the general dislike for "hypocrites", it doesn't make their claim wrong, but just destroys their credibility, which isn't tied by nature. That being said, I may do something similar, doesn't mean I acknowledge it as right, or do not want to hold myself to a higher standard. I understand the rage, the frustration, the hate, but I won't justify my own actions just because I may do them in a state of vulnerability. I want to be better than that, and I genuinely believe I should.

That being said, what Kirito has done shouldn't be portrayed as anything heroic, but his cocky demeanor does not but portray it as such, only stopping at the fight at the hospital before Kirito actually show signs of anger, despite the fact that Sughou is blind in one eye after the virtual "sparring", just from the pain. It seems the reception would be quite different if there was gore or anything reminiscent of the scene from Mirai Nikki with the bombing girl's eye, and I'd argue that there is no difference when the pain is that overwhelming.

I hated it before it became popular, but after it became popular, I hated it even more. I get so triggered when I see people calling themselves, "Kirito" in games and online. This is the "Twilight" of the anime world, no doubts about it. You know it's pure garbage, but people love it.

It was good during the beginning, then it kinda just died for me. I liked when they fought to survive, not to kill. The romance was cute as well and I really kind of enjoyed it too. But it still had way too much hype...

It will always have a place in my heart tho.

Y'know, I looked at the Anime discussion headers, and only opened this thread to see whether chain responses to six SAO threads IN A ROW came from the same person.

I was not disappointed.

It's difficult, because SAO never truly feels like I'm watching gamers. None of them behave like real teenagers, and the show seems quite obsessed with itself really. I watched the series, and I found myself coming away from it disappointed and laughing. An awkward series that has good ideas, but poor execution.
