Sword Art Online is much deeper than most people think. It's a philosophical exploration of what happens as we move more & more into integrating technology into every aspect of our lives. If anything, Sword Art Online could be a spiritual successor to Wargames, & that movie is considered a seminal shift in popular culture in regards to technology & military force.

A story can explore ideas without necessarily being deep.

It explores those ideas, but in a much more simplistic and shallow way than many other things that have come before it, even just in anime. The idea had actually been done to death in anime before SAO started (e.g. Chobits, Lain, .hack//*, .... the thing about the girl who's a weapon and it was called something like, "the last love song on this lonely little planet", I think? I forgot.)

That, and whatever sort of ideas SAO is trying to explore, that takes a backseat to the wish fulfillment harem stuff that's the real focus of the series.

I mean, I guess you can say that the fact that they keep going back to the VR stuff even after it goes wrong so many times, that that's symbolic of society's addiction, or something... but the show is made to make it look cool. You can't really have it both ways... http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/DoNotDoThisCoolThing

FLCL is something you either really like or you go "WTF was that?"

Besides the obvious parody of anime tropes, Fooly Cooly deals a lot with the loss of innocence, growing up, accepting responsibility, & the desire to run away from it all. It also deals a little bit with temptation, but that's a discussion for another time.

Again, having themes does not necessarily make something great just by itself.

Blue Exorist Season 1 had better charater devolpment when rin was exposed, And at least so far had a better overall story.

They all focus on gettting a goal done fixing the sword(how was that fixed in the current canon) and though that and small other things realized Rin was still Rin . It was also a better story My god these 1st 4 episodes have dragged on and on. Rin hasn't cooked one dish, Our happy go lucky Rin is Now a Angist filled sad sack with a fake smile. There been no real charater devolpment among the side cast. Yet ANY even mild critism in the comments is voted down to hell quicky as if the show is so weak now they can't risk it show or it will implode. Worse there confusion even amoung supporters of when this slow sad shit will end. Some said it should of ended aready other say it continues till near the end of this story. I loved Blue Exorist i loved the 2nd half a season 2 because it had great charater devolopment. I don't dislike This new show, But I hate the fans now. Dismissal of the 1st season outright, supression of any cristism, blind faith that it's better no matter what.

Heres mine, any Anime (or Manga) whose description starts with "-generic loser's name- is an ordinary high school boy" is garbage.

A show has to be pretty freakin amazing to overcome that giant shit flag.

To those saying anime is a mistake and needs to be saved, I wrote about why that is wrong, if you're interested on reading about it!
