That's not exactly unusual. It's not easy to explain lots of intricate details without going 'wall of text/20 minutes of talking' so sometimes they're not even trying.
Reminded me of Yukikaze 'Tony Hawks style airplane megabomb disposal' which looked outright ridiculous in anime while in the book there was an proper explanation (pilot almost dead from internal injuries caused by excessive g-forces, basically whole airframe had to be rebuild from scratch and they still got away mostly by luck).

I don't have a screen cap but around the episode 10-20 range there was an episode where Judau steals the ZZ Gundam which leaves the Argama basically defenseless for a really long time since its other Mobile Suits are implied to not stand much of a chance to NZs shit. Where he goes with it is Neo Axis to find his sister.

So basically the whole thing is him wandering Neo Axis and then comes back after getting nothing accomplished. At the end he 's locked up in the brig and basically just tells Bright to fuck off and that he's wrong for punishing him.

I just couldn't do it any more

The series goes to shit the moment it stops being a whodunit (episode 7 iirc), but I kept watching hopingif it would get better. But then ep 18 happened and it became very clear that the bishoujos and Subaru's pity-me party is what the show is really about. The plot is just an excuse to get things going.

Got to give them credit, they sure fooled me with that first arc. I thought this surely wouldn't be typical otaku garbage.

That's not a better explanation. That actually makes the issue worse.

The issue is that a product that shoots microwaves into the users face would never make it shelves in the first place. The explanation renders the entire premise impossible.

The problem isn't that we don't understand what happening, The problem is we understand it better than the author.

It's not confusing, it's retarded.

Mobile phones shoot microwaves right next to brain and it's not a problem.
It's not like every device on a market goes through that many checks in every country.

NerveGear by its very design has to somehow tamper with brain waves which means it has to have a rather specialized and powerful transmitter. For example for regular operations it might have been used in pulsed mode but after removing the firmware limit it becomes possible to overpower it to a point of doing irrecoverable damage to the brain. Of course such a thing will probably cause an overheat and destroy transmitter but it's not like manufacturer will have to care about warranty at that point.
It's not an entirely unthinkable situation that it cleared all regulations with firmware limit in place. And it's not like regulators will analyze all the design documents for a possibility of drastic overpower.
>>
>>147321796
Why would he be immune to his own ability?
>>
>>147320269
The NerveGear was supposed to fry user's brain instantly, in case of people outside trying to forcibly take it off.
The problem is with power output. To fry the brain instantly, you would need tens if not hundreds of thousands watts. And we are supposed to believe that there was a power source, a cavity magnetron and everything in between, capable of producing, transmitting and utilizing such high powers, just stuffed inside of a toy. And even assuming that they had technology to do that, somehow no one has noticed during designing, buying parts, assembling and safety testing that absurdly pricey, dangerous and unnecessary elements were included in their product.
>>
>>147322063
Don't forget that NerveGear has the ability to interfere with brain and disable transmission of nerve-signals to body.
Such a feat if at all possible will require some kind of powerful transmitter being directed to brain.

Software defined radios are not unheard of even nowadays. Wifi router radio for example is sometimes capable of delivering a watt or two of power but it is limited in software to a hundred milliwatts or lower.

A pulse of couple orders of magnitude compared to regular continuous power might be possible at the cost of frying the transmitter circuit in the process.

There's absolutely no evidence for that other than a picture of him where he kind of looks like he could be in his 20s that was taken about a decade after he originally published the novel on the net.

The problem is that the power output during the normal gameplay simply couldn't be high, because otherwise it would leave burns after prolonged use. The gap between "safe to use with indefinitely long exposure" and "kills you under a second" is enormous.
Also no one sane would allow installing a microwave cannon directed at player's brain that could kill them in case of power spike, not to even mention the lack of circuit breakers.
And still there remains the problem of internal power source. It wouldn't be just a tiny battery, those sick watts would have to come from somewhere.
>>

Look at the size of the gun and the way he's holding it -- he's not even bracing it with his shoulder. Of course the spread is shit.

Does it really fucking matter? I think SAO is a piece of shit because of bad plotting and shitty characters, but you're literally complaining about the lowest and dumbest thing to complain about, which is the premise itself. It's like complaining about time travel in a sci-fi show. Or complaining about the compression method they used in Steins;Gate to decrease data size. It's absolute bullshit but it doesn't matter because the explanation serves the purpose of moving the plot along, not being the plot itself.

During normal gameplay it may be used to deliver rather high-power but really short (milliseconds) and spread in time pulses. Cooling by blood flow will prevent burns in this case but it might still have the desired effect on nerves in necessary areas.
During frying sequence the transmitter will be grossly overpowered and turned on for a prolonged time.

For a power source a single good 18650 is capable of delivering up to 20A continuous and 30A pulse. It has stored energy of around 12Wh. Which means that at 30A it is capable of providing up to 100 Watts for around 5 minutes. It's not hard to double the current and peak power by connecting two 18650 in series.
And those batteries are not that huge and are used even in headlamps nowadays.
>>
>>147322760
>you're literally complaining
Not really? The anon wanted to know what's wrong with NerveGear, so I just answered.

>>147323149
>During normal gameplay it may be used to deliver rather high-power but really short (milliseconds) and spread in time pulses.
I doubt it would work that way, simply because of the huge amount of information transferred. Every frame you would have to tell brain what player is supposed to see, hear, feel, smell, taste. That's a lot of data to transfer within a very short time.

As for the power source, the output of 100 watts or even 1000 watts is still not enough. Exposure to microwaves generated by 600 watt oven for 5 seconds will give you some burns. We want a sure way to off the player in less than a second. Not to mention that putting batteries capable of power output of thousands of watts in a game device makes no sense.
And still there is a problem of lacking circuit breakers. Assuming that NerveGear actually would need such a powerful microwave generator, not making sure that brain-frying accident won't happen would alarm anyone involved.

Yes, a frequency of 2.4Ghz with a power of one one thousandth of a watt - in order to fry a brain in a second you'd need more like 20MW

I'm one of those who found the concept of the show amusing, but didn't really get the point.

On one hand, I like that pissy liberals and proles are being put in their fucking place.

On the other hand, the adventures of invincible Aryan superman mean that he faces no meaningful challenge. While it's hilarious how he always ends up killing vast amount of Chinese, the show isn't really exciting.

Like, remember the magic tournament where the final battle was him backflipping and shooting targets that magically appeared? Or the ends amount of technobabble?

FOR FUCK'S SAKE, IT'S MAGIC. JUST SAY "IT'S FUCKING MAGIC".

I mean, really old manga like Lone Wolf and Cub had a basically invincible protagonist, but that one remains a classic because the story was about the world around him.

The funny part is that Oniisama's ultimate power is the fact that they modified his mind. Literally nothing can beat that. They effectively gave him the Will to Power and made him an ubermensch.

>FOR FUCK'S SAKE, IT'S MAGIC. JUST SAY "IT'S FUCKING MAGIC".
I don't think the story about an engineer is the right one for you if you are only interested in being assured that "it just fucking works".
>>
>>147325863

The main difference is that Oniisama isn't remotely a hero. He's a killing machine.

Kirito's all about being nice and kind and attracting girls to him. Tatsuya doesn't give a fuck. He is the Nietzschean superman, and everyone else can eat shit.

He's a mass-murderer and a partially lobotomized bodyguard, and what's entertaining is how politically incorrect he is. He lives in a racist, fascist society based around eugenics and a futuristic caste system, and he loves it. He's not a plucky rebel, he's the guy who puts the boot in.

Being self-aware enough to realize that you're rooting for the bad guys, and the bad guys have built a functional society, makes Mahouka a hilarious story.

Remember, the very first plot arc was about a girl hoping to get more rights, and his answer was something along the lines of "I guess you're fucked, then. There's no hope for you." even though he said it in a nice way. That girl ended up hooking up with the guy who was bullying her.

You're collectively rationalizing your love for a bad show by saying "it's fun".

No one said it wasn't fun, what I said is that it's bad. Yet you fucks will still eat it up, all the while mocking MAL or Reddit for their shit taste.

Newsflash, you're literally on the same level.

Is fun a buzzword to you?

Get off your horse. It's made of hot air.
>>
>>147332169
No it's not.
Again, I understand that people have different preferences. What I find fun could be horribly boring for you.

A low functioning autistic kid might find playing with poo hilarious. But he's still playing with poo.

He's having fun, but he's playing with poo. Do you get what I am saying?
>>
>>147322700
They both are.
>>
>>147332291
>Do you get what I am saying?
No, I don't, because you seem to be confused.
Poo is objectively poo. It contains germs and it is smelly. It is an objectively inferior toy to mud, which can be rinsed off easily and is not smelly and contains no germs.

But if fun is irrelevant to the quality of entertainment media, then what is fun? And what is (the point of) entertainment media?
Is fun a buzzword to you?
>>
>>147332527
Again, no.

But you got that part right.
Poo is objectively poo. What is subjective is the amount of fun people have when playing with poo.

Fun isn't a buzzword, it's just a very subjective way to talk about something.

Nothing wrong about that, the thing that makes no sense is the level of doublethink that /a/ is immersed in if it thinks that there are any differences between Mahouka and SAO, besides for subjective elements such as fun.

Then explain why a character like Illya, despite have 3x the lore than any other character in Fate is only used for SOL comedic purposes and yurishit.

There are, though. I'm not sure you even watched the shows because there are objectively differences, many of which would make no difference to my enjoyment but all of which are objectively real.

You are equating your subjective enjoyment of these shows with an objective assessment and then you are refusing to allow us to see your criteria only mocking us for not sharing it.
In other words, you are shitposting.

>>147332763
Sorry for the incorrectness. The point is clear enough though.
>>
>>147332880
I think he's referring to the Urobutcher Fate/Zero.
>>
>>147332883
Both shows present a character that is nearly flawless, his only 'drawbacks' only exist to make him appear stronger or more stoic in the face of adversity, he is quickly able to gain a large following of members of the other sex, he's peerless in what he does (with the difference that in Mahouka Onii-sama is considered a second-rate mage, but refer to the critique I pointed out earlier), there is no obstacle or difficulty that represents a realistic problem for the MC.

The only difference is that Kirito seems to have more empathy, while Onii-sama appeals to those who prefer the strong, silent type.

Satisfied?
>>
>>147318573

I watched this. Liked it but not enough to get further into it.

Do have one question, as a filthy secondary.


Does Onii-sama have NO emotion whatsoever or is all that shit incredibly repressed?

I'm sure this answer is straightforward, but really I think the anime struggled with showing whether he's playing all this shit out like a sociopath and acting out in ways he knows people watching at the time want OR if he actually does get little bumps and nudges of genuine feeling and tries to act out on these.

So, yeah, he a Sociopath or a Vulcan?
>>
>>147333058
Genetically modified to not feel emotions aside from sibling love.
He isn't stoic, he simply can't feel anything else.
>>
>>147333024
>Satisfied?
Yes, in that I now know you have no idea what we are even talking about.
What you listed were a number of similarities, not a reason why there are no differences (which you can't, because the shows are different).

Shut up if you can't come up with something better.
>>
>>147333221
>oh no we are in a predicament!
>normally this would create a feel of anxiety and tension in the watcher, as he wonders what the next move is
>hell, in certain series, some of the main characters might even die as a consequence of the predicament we're currently facing
>Onii-sama/Kirito walks in, solves the problem single-handedly, and everyone lives happily ever after.

There are no differences, anon. You're grasping at straws.
>>
>>147333369
All your complaints also work for old classics like City Hunter or Golgo13.
The old CityHunter series was hilarious in that no matter what predicament Ryo was facing, he was 99% concerned with wooing the girl and only solved her case as a sort of boring chore on the side.

>There are no differences,
There are differences, most notably perhaps in the emotionality of the characters. But I'm sure you would have noticed that if you weren't just shitposting.
>>
>>147333514
>most notably perhaps in the emotionality of the characters

Which I already pointed out. They only exist to cater to two different kinds of audiences, one that likes the "hero" kind of MC, and the one who likes the "Strong, Silent, Badass Anti-Hero" sort of character.

They're just a triviality in what the show boils down to.
>>
>>147333606
>Which I already pointed out.
Then perhaps you should phrase your statements better.

>They're just a triviality in what the show boils down to.
Or they are part of what the show is about.
SAO has a juvenile MC and rapist villains.
Mahouka has a "mature" MC and world wars to be fought.
It's different atmospheres.
>They only exist to cater to two different kinds of audiences,
These are pointless statements. No one is denying that the shows have similarities. But with Mahouka the mixture works, partially because it doesn't have as much juvenile angst and rape fantasy.
>>
>>147333936
>Mahouka has a "mature" MC
Exactly, "mature".

Which means that the show doesn't become more mature because of that, it only appears to be. This is specifically made to cater to the kids who want to feel superior because they didn't watch SAO.

But it's still SAO cooked in a different sauce. That maturity is just a facade to hide how juvenile you have to be to enjoy it.
>>
>>147318573
Is this before he literally becomes Jesus and starts reviving people from the dead? I barely remember anything about this series, but if you dropped it before you got to that part, you definitely missed out.
>>
>>147334592
>Which means that the show doesn't become more mature
No, it's more mature because it doesn't delve as deep into the sex jokes as SAO does. It's not mature, it's just more mature.
But there is a big plus to Mahouka, not that he *can't* get excited about certain situations, but that he *won''t*. Sometimes an emotionally stunted person is a more pleasant companion than an overly emotional person.
>But it's still SAO cooked in a different sauce.
And a well-cooked steak is better than a badly cooked one.

>This is specifically made to
No.
And either way it's irrelevant.

>That maturity is just a facade to hide how juvenile you have to be to enjoy it.
Ooh, low punch. But that's all you seem to have left.
>>
>>147334592
Actually Mahouka writer is 50 + and most of its readers are middle aged or older.
Yes MC lived through 20 books unchallenged and now got with universe buster status.
>>
>>147334856
>No, it's more mature because it doesn't delve as deep into the sex jokes as SAO does

You have to be baiting. I perfectly remember the scene in which the half-naked little sister complains about his brother not reacting?

How is this not a sex joke? You're just seeing what you want to see.

Mahouka is a SAO made to appeal to those kids who think they're too cool for SAO, but would fall for the same kind of plot points and plot devices.
>>
>>147335033
>You're just seeing what you want to see.
I can return that statement, because it seems you didn't quite read (or understand) what you quoted.
I never said Mahouka doesn't have sex jokes.
I stated with incorrect grammar, that it doesn't have as much of that humor as SAO does.

Truly the worst anime I've ever watched, and worst of all, I realized it too late and forced myself to watch the whole thing, because surely it couldn't be THAT bad, could it? Surely it would at least end in a high note to reward my persistence? But no... I was just retarded.
Opposite of character development, people are introduced and dropped, no closure for anyone, hilarious justifications, and Chekhov's blue balls of epic proportions, but I could practically hear the creator of this travesty masturbating furiously behind the screen at his magnificent self-insertion dream.
My only consolation is that I watched episodes of this shit at night, so I can't say it's time truly wasted, as I'd probably just be sleeping otherwise.
Anyone who is even merely curious about this show, don't watch it, I still rage from time to time whenever I remember it.

Oh yeah, as which anime I dropped, the most recent one was Nanatsu no Taizai, around the point in the story where they free the invulnerable guy from the prison.
I have no idea about how it progresses, but after suffering through one power fantasy where the heroes never suffer the repercussions of their actions, I thought I had enough of that.
If someone convinces me that they actually face at least some semblance of adversity further on I might pick up again, but I doubt it.

Because Mahouka's threads were fun back when it was airing, that's why some of us have good memories of the show.
