I notice that there is a lot of people that just don't like Sword Art Online and i don't exactly know why. I thought it might be the whole "it's to popular" but that's not really a good reason to hate any anime. Could someone tell me why there is so much hate towards S.A.O?


I LOVED SAO in season 1, season 2 was ok, and season 3 is just terrible. The story just isn't as intriguing as it was in season 1. There is nothing exciting now that we basically know the extent of the anime, the full-dive technology was super intriguing now it's boring and old.
The anime is being dragged on way too long, instead of being a short and sweet gem of the anime industry it's being dragged on as long as possible to get as much money out of it as possible. MapleStory (The popular korean uber grindy MMO.) did an event about a month ago that had season 1 SAO, and it was super fun.

This is just what I felt about it, I don't hate on anime for being super popular, if anything I love when they're super popular because there tends to be more people to chat about it with. So in my opinion the show is generally being hated on for the drop in story quality I guess. I personally stopped watching season 3 around episode 10 because I don't look forward to it every week. I look forward to anime weekly when I am super excited for the next chunk of plot, for example the latest Naruto ark is super intriguing and exciting, the same goes as well for One Piece.


There is a bit of a flaw in your statement. The anime isn't being dragged out any, it's following the light novels, which are award winning. Also, you don't help your statement with the part at the end.

I dislike SAO because of bad pacing and the main character, Kirito, is a "Mary Sue" character; he has no faults. This can get really boring. However, I can see why people would like it, but I do not.

I personally like SAO, but it kinda got boring to me during the ALO arc, & I was semi interested in the GGO arc as well. Mother's rosario arc was okay, & I kinda liked how it focused on Asuna, but most people I know hated that. Tbh I couldn't say why people hate it, but i do agree with the people that say it kinda lost it's potential. I have read the light novels up to 14 and I think the alicization arc is the only other arc i loved as much as the Aincrad arc. But that's just my opinion. Overall it's not a horrible anime to me, and I don't see why it's so hated?

1. Characters are disappointing, generic stereotypes. Asuna is a trainwreck of a character (went from being an introvert to an annoying ass stereotypical tsundere)
2. Story is inconsistent. (Time skips, plotholes)
3. Plot conviennce (Things just happen because it's convienient for the plot. Examples are Yui and when Kirito beat Sugou in ALO (fairy king))
4. Incest
5. Pointless fanservice
6. Edginess
7. Harem
8. Main character is SO OP

The main "character" is a lifeless male power fantasy and the female lead is an annoying tsundere. There's really little more to it other than that Log Horizon does a far better job of creating a believable "stuck in an MMO" setting.

So how does Log Horizon explain how they get there? How is not dying when physically in a world more believable than dying due to microwaves when you're in a digital world?

The male version of this is Gary Stu and Kirito is actually not a self-insert, he has faults that are shown in the anime, and even more prevalent in the Light Novel.

Honestly, I grew up with .//HACK SIGN and originally it was the fan base that annoyed the shit out of me because NO ANIME IS PERFECT. Like come on, plus allot of SAO Fans praise it as the "First" MMORPG anime ever which is Incredible dumb and naive of them to say without doing research. Then I forced myself to watch it, and the flaws are too real! the time skips make things too confusing. Episode 1 Asuna: .. Episode 7 Asuna: I HATE YOUR GUTS KIRITO. Episode 8 Asuna: I LOVE YOU KIRITO MARRY [email protected]#@$$#@[email protected]

If that makes any sense to you, we can't be friends because that doesn't make sense even if there is "time skips" you didn't see them bond over two years.

That's mainly how it happens in the light novels, I believe. I think if you want to avoid the time skips you have to read the Progressive novels which explains what happens. But the anime follows the Light novels which is why there are time skips, but I totally agree with you on how it kinda doesn't make sense. That's why i read the light novels after I watched the anime.

Log Horizon does not explain how they get there (indeed, I suspect they will not touch on it till the final arcs), as that is not the main thrust of what the plot is about. SAO is all about 'clearing the game', with the primary cause of drama being 'its a death game'. Log Horizon is not that.

It's much slower, and indeed better paced, more focused on discovering the mystery of why they ended up in the game like they did, and adapting to the fact that all the NPCs suddenly became fully sentient beings in their own right, and balancing the issues of forming an organized society out of the chaos of the situation as a whole, all the while the game becomes more real and developed in scale. As for your second objection, Log Horizon's world is still a game. That never changed. Game mechanics are still in effect. In-Game menus and level of screens exist. Stats are still present. All of this is the case. It just still has the respawn point built in.

Log Horizon is not still a game. They are actually living physically in what is basically the game interface. They are not using any kind of VR technology, they were playing on basically normal PCs

Your argument is a silly one. "Because it was not using VR tech, they are not in the game, despite having access to all the game mechanics and everything else matching it.' I don't see how you came to the conclusion you did. VR tech does not the game make. Or there presence therein, either. Otherwise by that argument, none of the characters in the Tron movies were in their game.

Everyone has their own taste and opinions. I find it funny how defensive some people are with anime when they encounter different opinions...

Not really a big fan so far, not really liking the art style, and the romance feels kind of cringe worthy. I mean, I like romance stories, but this one just feels.. off. I'll keep watching though and see if it gets better, but I don't have high hopes.

Besides the fact that the first fucking episode says they're physically in the game world, I'm not sure how you missed that.
