So I'm about 9 episodes in, and while it does have its flaws..I can't stop watching it. I'm not seeing why people think Sword Art Online is bad. Anybody else legitimately like the show? If not, feel free to state your opinions as well.

Even with what people call bad I still found it entertaining. Yes there is plot BS but who cares it was well done BS. As in shiny. And shiny is fun.

But in all seriousness it was pretty enjoyable throughout even though the 1st arc was the best so far.

Reminder that this is canon.

>>134861888
>>134861666
You are what's wrong with the world.
The show is watchable up to the halfway point when they leave Sword Art Online, meaning the show isn't even about the same MMORPG.

Only decent factor there on in is Sugoko's cow tits.
Love plot is bullshit.

BRUH!!! They don't just fuck, they get disgusting.

When you get to episode 10, right at the part where Asuna punches Kirito (you'll know what I'm talking about when you get there), stop and read this:

https://www.fanfiction.net/s/8539671/1/Sword-Art-Online-Extra-Chapter-16-5

This was actually written by the author and intended to be in the first volume of the light novel. For reasons that will become clear to you as you read it, it wasn't in the finished product, but it's still canon.

I can't even make this shit up.....
>>
It's not bad. There are a few clunker arcs, but most of it is pretty fun.

A lot of the hate it gets is because it was so successful, it spawned a bunch of crappy copycat shows that do twists on the same "sucked into the mmo" premise.

SAO is shit and you should take my word on it because I have nothing but your best interests at heart, and not just some random fucking guy on the internet that you've never met before, anon
>>
>>134861666
Disliking SAO is a meme on /a/. It used to be a meme that Bakemonogatari was shit. Everyone liked using the word 'pretentious' for it. Same thing happened with Kill la Kill, and many others. I see it happening to One Punch Man now, where the haters are all calling it a 'gag manga with one joke repeated endlessly.'

More of the story: If /a/ hates it, its probably better than you think.

First half of the first season is good. Second half is just disappointing in comparison. Ultimately it still passes in my book because of the strong first half.

first half is OK, second half is meh, second series is "fuck this shit".

2nd half of SAO II is great. First half was disappointing, Sinon is cool in her avatar form but too much time was wasted in muh traumas instead of awesome gunfighting.

I love how Gungale arc started off great and then they decided to throw Sinon in the trashcan.

>"Oh let's focus on Sinon and Kirito's relationship and how they work together"

*After Climax of Gungale Arc*

>"Lol hey Sinon come play elf wonderland of shit with me, my sister and my friends"

>"Okay!"

Proceeds to be shoehorned into the game and plays no major role after Gungale and just becomes another cog in Kirito's harem machine.

Gungale was entirely too short imo

>>134863491
Don't worry, after that literally every character stops existing while Kirito gets a personality.
>>
The easiest way to see how this is bad is to watch a better show with a similar concept (for example, Log Horizen)
1. The creator of SAO doesnt know how mmorpgs actually work.
2. This is a wish fulfillment show, made up of the edgy teen who can do anything and makes all the girls fall in love with him (the only person who could possibly beat Kirito in a 1 on 1 duel had to cheat to do it.)
3. There is no actual tension within the show, whenever things get going Kirito is always ready to curb stomp it.
4. Personality; Asuna started off as a clueless prodigy, became a badass army leader, got degraded to Princess Peach.
5. Romance; the romance in this show is terribly paced (along with the show having terrible pacing in general) and makes you want to believe that spending time with people in games makes you fall in love with them (including Lisbeth who fell in love with Kirito after knowing him for like 2-3 days).
6. Villains; Akihiko could have been a good villain if we got some good reason as to why he made SAO in the first place, however, he "forgot" his reason for doing any of it. Blond elf fag; The shitty gay cousing of Griffith who cant do anything right.
7. Anything I havent mentioned (except animation, that wasnt absolutely terrible).
>>
>>134861666
Finish watching it or drop it, and think for yourself.

Basically, this.
In my opinion it's like this: first half is enjoyable, second half is decent, GGO arc of the 2nd is borderline passable, but afterwards don't even bother.

i honestly want to see a spinoff of it. takes place in the same timeframe as the original, but it focuses on that fat guy that was pretending to be handsome and older and the skinny loser that was pretending to be a girl. We can see their journey as they begrudgingly set out with each other and then slowly bond. Doesn't have to be gay. Here we see what average players deal with. They might struggle against some random enemies in a forest, get attacked and actually have a hard time defending themselves, etc. There would be that true feeling of hopelessness and they realize they'll only make it out of there if someone else manages to beat the game.
>>
I actually like SAO's depressing moments (Sachi's death, Yolko's "death", Kirito and Asuna's "death" ).
Too bad there's none of that in progressive.

If you can in knowing it was self-insert wishfulfillment bullshit, its actually pretty enjoyable. I really liked Klein, the girls were cute, music was good, and the animation is pretty good as well. You just have to trudge through that terrible romance arc and learn to laugh at Kirito's poorly written character.
GGO had less wish fulfilment, but was really terribly paced and it wasn't as fun, in my opinion. Excalibur arc felt like filler but was okay enough I suppose.
Mother's Rosario is legitimately decent since Asuna goes back to her pre-Kirito character for awhile
until the entire server randomly shows up to watch Yuuki die

The only noteworthy thing to happen in SAO was Kirito glopping into Asuna. Actual sex is a rare thing in teenage harem bullshit.

Why does /a/ hate Kirito so much? He's not a whiny beta, he's smart and strategic, he only cries at genuinely sad moments, and he stays true to his one woman, ignoring all the one-note whores who come his way.

Kirito and Inaho from Aldnoah Zero are literally the MC's /a/ has been asking for.
>>
>>134875676
> the MC's /a/ has been asking for.
Please, /a/ doesn't know what it wants and never will, most people here are habitually contrarian.

Which is not to say that I like Kirito or think he's a good character, because I don't. I just find him 'Eh'. He's pretty inoffensive really. Any claim about him being a Mary Sue is usually a misapplication of the term.
>>
>>134875676
>>134875868

He's such a mary sue, though. He had to be the best girl too, on top of being harem MC.

True in the sense that all the anons who shit on "whiny beta" Shinji archetypes are reminded why they became an archetype.

It's almost like Kirito and autistic Kirito from AZ were created to remind us that alphas can be just as irritating as betas, if not even more so.
>>
>>134879445
How much longer is this trend of attempting to boil down every male character to two oversimplistic polar opposites going to last, anyway? Because I'm sick to my ass of hearing beta this and alpha that. Start thinking about things with more nuance, you lazy cunts.
>>
>>134879629
they can't. they either call them what they themselves are, which is a beta or what they are jealous of, alphas.
>>
>>134880059
No, they don't. It just appeals to their tiny reptile hindbrains to neatly pidgeonhole everything into exactly two categories, no matter how irrelevant to fiction or reality the concept is. People aren't that simple, and neither are most fictional characters, even many badly written ones.

It wasn't. It was always hidden away at the back of the author's website, away from the attention of anyone who wasn't specifically looking for SAO smut (because apparently people submitted smut stories to the author, and he went ahead and put them on his site, alongside this atrocity)

That said, the Season 2 BDs have the sequel to 16.5, Sugary Days, so it looks like the author no longer cares if people know about the glopping that happens in SAO.

>>134863547
>This is a wish fulfillment show
Welcome to anime.

>edgy teen who can do anything
Hardly.

>(the only person who could possibly beat Kirito in a 1 on 1 duel had to cheat to do it.)
And in their rematch, the only way Kirito could possibly win was because Asuna, right?

>however, he "forgot" his reason for doing any of it.
Oh look, this meme again.
>>
>>134861666
To put this in perspective for you, I think SAO is pretty bad, but it was fairly entertaining.

I thought akame ga kill was awful, and I watched the whole series in a day because I literally couldn't look away from the train wreck it was.
I also enjoyed it.

Why do people here feel like they have to pretend that they must only enjoy something 'ironically', because it clearly must be shit, because everything is shit, and that to do otherwise would invite ridicule?

Worse, why are they absolutely right about that?
