So I finished watching SAO, and I realized something, something I should have noticed ages ago, Kirito is FUCKING BADASS.
>>
Indeed. Only faggots with shit taste hate on him.
>>
>>136014005
He's okay, it really wasn't as bad as many say but it could have been better. Asuna a best.

I will admit it. I was GAR for kirito and thought SAO was fun until /a/ started hating it. Then I sliently started hating it because of /a/.
That and the fucking final fight with healthcliff what the fuck man.

Time marches on despite everything.
Kill La Kill feels as old as gurren lagann to me now.
I remember when people used to complain about gurren lagann the way they do about SAO because it became too popular. If anything, SAO is actually standing the test of time as a hated show like attack on titan.
Although attack on titan only got hate after the anime aired and it became too popular.

>>136014005
I can beat the shit out of him IRL, and probably in any RPG too.
Guess I'm the ultimate badass and I didn't even realize...

Isn't that the same for SAO?
Before the anime, I'm told there were plenty of quiet threads about the LN, but no one really hated on it until it became over-hyped.

Really? because I'm pretty sure Gilgamesh, Berserker, Archer and Saber Alter were all servants.

>He did not succeed in fullfilling Kiritsugus dreams
"Succeeds were his loser dad failed" means he actually won the HGW and destroyed the HG without it killing anyone, saving most of humanity from Gil's ethnic cleansing.

He and Inaho from Aldnoah Zero are literally the MC's /a/ has been demanding for years.

The only people who hate on him are insecure beta autists who feel insecure looking at his successes, so they take out their social and sexual frustrations on him.

Thanks OP.

>>136014005
Yeah. He's also a disgusting quasi-autistic sociopath who hides out in the woods glopping his waifu instead of trying break out of the prison-game, thinks a guy touching his waifu's digital boobs is worse than another guy who killed about 4000 people, and seems to actually have some camaraderie with the guy who killed 4000 people.

He's worse than your average Stu, in terms of characterization and personality.

Totally, Kirito and Naruto is probably two of my most favourite characters.

I honestly can't tell if these are all actually newfags whose first anime was SAO, or if pretending SAO is good is the new hipster craze. But what's the point of so many people in here baiting each other? Is it in the hopes that some idiot will show up and start arguing that SAO is shit?

Shirou VS Kirito VS Touma. Who would win?

Don't want to make a new SAO thread for this

Shirou's win is a series of convenience.

Going by your description of the plot; yeah, it's probably a Yui-based movie.
On the other hand, it might be about Alicization's Fluctlights?

There's no way they're going to bring Fluctlights in before having them brought up in season 3. It would necessitate Underworld, which would necessitate Kirito alone, which means no harem which is inconceivable.

I'm gonna guess that the basic Cardinal process in ALO gets corrupted and tries to destroy Arun/Yggdrassil/Alfheim/etc. in the form of massive quests that should have not been allowed to happen (i.e. Caliber Failure Side). Yui's probably gonna get superpowers. Why the fuck not?

If she were straight, she'd make that pansy Kirito into a rentboy sex slave.

kek, no. Kirito will save Madoka from Homura and HOmura will fall in love with Kirito so they can engage in threesome.
>>
>>136026151
And it never will be.

Sorry SAOshitters; a consensus of anons still thinks all copies of your anime should be gathered up and shot into the sun. If you don't like that, kindly fuck off to MAL or wherever.

Of course, you're probably just three people at the most anyway.

Why SAO is objectively shit and you should hate it:


(the basics)
-overdone "stuck in a video game" setting
-gary stu MC with a "harem"

(why S1 is shit)
-Forced drama:

Introducing a character for 1-3 episodes and then letting them die. This is done multiple times so that it can end up in the
>"I have to endure all the pain on my own because everyone around me is getting hurt"-trope
which leads into the
>"No wait friendship is actually pretty important"-trope
which then leads into the next point

-Massive tonal shifts / sudden character development unfitting to the established characters and world

Our self-insert teenaged MC gets the girl everyone desires and marries her. (reminder that Kirito is 14 years old at this point) At this point the setting doesn't even matter anymore and even the characters don't care about the plot anymore. The story takes a break to show us that the MC is a perfect lover and father. ( still 14 years old) Of course the daughter is also a "deus ex machina / tragic character"-cliché.
At this point the Gary Stu powers of our MC reach a new high, he can suddenly hack the game. This shows how unimportant the "danger" of dying in the game is to him, which leads us to our next point

-Shit pacing

At this point the writer remembered that there still is an overarching "danger" in form of the plot but there is only one episode left!
The true villain of the anime at this point reveals himself and gets killed off in one episode. Our MC overrides the death system, shitting on the plot and established universe even more. Cue tragic backstory of the villain and of course TO BE CONTINUED.

-The anime is just a money-making machine

Letting the anime continue and reuse the same plot for 4 seasons even after it's shown that nothing is really dangerous for the main characters is by far the biggest sin and shows that it's just a big money-making scheme that shits on consumers and people who actually care about good anime
>>
>>136025903
It could be worse. Kirito is pretty ok as a gary stu self insert and Asuna is cute.

Not for anime. What does this matter?

You mean the one time it was done in episode 3?

>"No wait friendship is actually pretty important"-trope
Didn't happen at all. Are you sure we're talking about SAO?

16, but point taken.

>muh cliches

>he can suddenly hack the game
>This shows how unimportant the "danger" of dying in the game is to him
Wat?
People call this hacking? Holy shit, you tech-illiterates. I mean, have you ever logged into any website ever? Do you suddenly call it hacking when you forget to log out, and someone starts using your account?
I find it hard to imagine that the only time you connect to the web is anonymously, and that you don't use any kind of social media, forums, or email. But I guess there are some ancient grandparent who would call this hacking.

>tragic backstory of the villain
Where?

>it's just a big money-making scheme that shits on consumers and people who actually care about good anime

It's one of the top selling Light Novels, so it must be doing something right :^)

He's good at everything, has no flaws, and any girl he talks to for 5 mins falls in love with him (including his fucking sister).

I get it. Kirito is everything you want to be. That doesn't change the fact that he's a terribly written gary-stu made to pander to teenagers.
