Sword Art Online is a gateway anime of the worst kind. It\'s a bad series, a clusterfuck of story and characterization that isn\'t very well done by any aspect, but which attempts to compensate for its weaknesses by adding in excessive shipping ****ry and self-insertion. The normal anime fan can see this as the shit it is, and may enjoy it, hate it or be indifferent to it, but all the while recognizing that the series itself, regardless of their opinion, is plain bad.
However, these very aspects that try to smear over the shit of its core make it a breeding ground for aspie, unsociable underageb& ****s who engage in every kind of ****ry both online and in the real world. The super powered gary stu main character always trying his hardest to look cool, the elongated, black and edgy long coat and everything about SAO world fuels their escapist fantasies, while the harem character backgrounds, make it fit just right with the mary-sueish drives of your average preteen and his sense of unwarranted self-importance towards the world. Exactly the kind of shit that makes little kiddies and underageb& retards eat this shit right the fuck up.
A TRULY FANTASTIC ANIME
this anime is amazing it has gaming, war fare, sword play, romance, love, comedy, deception, passion, mystery, and everything that makes an anime great Sword Art Online is now ranked among my top favorite anime\'s of all time and i recommend it to everybody.
This anime is amazing, I watched it when it first aired and ive been a fan ever since. A boy name Kirito is trapped in a game and its a life or death situation, no spoilers intended. Im not really a big fan of \"game\" anime but this is my all time favorite. Ive watched Accel World and //:Hack but this is one caught my attention even more. The opening is simply amazing, the plot is fascinating, and the fights are very good. I hope this anime gets a 3rd season with GGO but for now i recommend any who hasnt watch this show to watch it.
This anime is quite good but most of the episode are short stories from the novel.
this might have been better if based on the progressive story.
it makes more in depth story if they tell it from floor by floor perspective of the character and their will as they go on. even if not by every floor at least their interaction with other survivors and how they kept at it for 2 years trapped inside the game.
the light novel have some ecchi scenes but that\'s part of the story which makes it good by adding desire which people do in desperate or hopeless situations.
this might have been a long running anime like One Piece,Bleach,Naruto
they could add stories from quests taken to gain certain items to character relationship development.
like how kirito felt in the long time before he got married to asuna
