you didn't get the memo apparently..
ordinal scale redeemed the franchise and it's now highly rated on /a/
so you can stop pretending to hate it because the hive has changed its mind

lmaoooooooooooooo
It was absolutely terrible save for the animation. No character development whatsoever, cheap mystery plot, cringe-inducing dialogue. How anyone who's not a die-hard fan can enjoy this garbage is beyond me.

I will never understand how anyone could ever find such utter garbage entertaining.
>>
>>154771388
There are far worse things out there. It butchered a good plot but it wasn't really good or bad since they stayed generic. I know Kirito gets a lot of hate but being generic isn't good or bad. Once you watch animes with MCs that try to be unique but fail you will see what it means to want to kill yourself every time they speak.

>>154774840
No, it was already dead to begin with.
He just made hating it the trendy new thing.

I see it as more of the Medea of anime.

Kawahara seems to be at his strongest when writing drama between two characters. Even his interactions between weak characters are fairly entertaining. Instead of focusing hard on that, however, he keeps doing half-baked action/adventure stuff.

Similarly, Tyler Perry is a fucking great drama writer, but instead we keep getting Medea's shitty wacky adventures. Why?

Because it makes money.

What, you mean like the boy wizard who can't even break up with a chick without it being entirely based on her crazy, Asian ass having a meltdown? Potter's a complete fucking cardboard cutout.
At least Kirito has something resembling character traits. Edge lord, videogame-loving siscon.

Ordinal Scale went back to Aincrad flavored mediocre. As long as you're inoffensively mediocre people will like/tolerate you. Just ask Danmachi and Accel World

Not really, but he, draconismarch and other e-celebs (i hope this thread gets purged) started the trend of rightfully shitting on a show in great detail.

S1: Summary
Started of half decent with nice visuals
Time skip
By episode 2 Kirito had become an unironic edgelord by dividing the entire community and the show treated it like he was doing something good
Time skip
Transitioning to "These minor characters who were obviously going to die died OH NOOOO"
Time skip
The harem expands
Kirito is overpowered to the point of hillarity
Time skip
Asuna becomes likable
Detective plot that does nothing
Time skip
More harem even though it's obvious Kirito and Asuna are going to get together
Guy who just so happened to not like Kirito turns out to be evil
I love you so much
No I love you more
I love you so much I would rather die
I love you even more
Random daughter subplot
Kirito hacks into the game in like 7 seconds because he's so great
Asuna becomes unlikable
Time skip to the end of the plot
The fucking creator of the game had to cheat to beat Kirito because he's so great
Kirito breaks the game out of sheer will because he's so great
>>
>>154778796
If SAO died a flop and was sealed in a box never to be spoken of again /a/ would like it.

Kirito goes into a coma because of the evil NSA.

The surviving Law guys try to train up a peasant army in preparation for the Chaos invasion (Chaos are led by the literal God of Darkness who is also an evil NSA agent who eats souls like rape).

They get rekt, but Kirito's harem save them with GM accounts and deebeezeee powerlevels.

NSA connect UW to the internet and get 50,000 American players to connect (it was advertized to them as a beta test for a new AO-rated VRMMO where you're allowed to slaughter anything and everything you like, with blood and guts), they mass murder UW residents and think it's hilarious.

To defeat them the main characters get 2,000 Japanese VRMMO players to connect. Despite the difference in numbers the Japanese are superior and win because Asian gamer damashii.

Then PoH (who is also an evil NSA agent) unleashes a zerg rush of Korean and Chinese gamers who were recruited by being told this is the a Korean VRMMO that's in beta test but evil Japanese hackers broke into the server, turned off pain dampening and are torturing their countrymen.

Even when some Japs who speak Korean try to explain the situation to them they don't listen because hurr japanese

The other NSA guys are surprised this works, they thought it wouldn't be worth it because they didn't think Japan is more different from Korea/China than European countries are from each other (hur)

Koreans and Chinese overwhelm Japs because this is every Jap's worst nightmare.

Kirito wakes up (thanks to the literal POWER OF LOVE from his entire harem) and wipes them all out in one attack though.

(Also PoH's motivation is that he's Korean and he hates Japanese so when he got stuck in SAO he decided to set up Laughing Coffin and have them and the clearers kill each other for shits and giggles because Nips killing each other is hilarious.)

Kirito and Asuna become gods because of x10000000 acceleration.

The AIs explore VR space with rocket dragons.

Kayaba wasn't going to kill his new protege, the entire reason he did the whole death game deal was to find his replacement after he scanned his brain/killed himself for the medicuboid and STL machines.
Also another important thing to take note of is that nearly the entirety of Aincrad is a bunch of disconnected short stories. They are not chronological in the LN, and bouncing around side stories in the anime wouldn't work. Also bear in mind that SAO 1, going from after Kirito's Dool Welding gets revealed to the end of aincrad, is the first thing Reki ever wrote.
In fact, the first time you see SAO without some sort of time skip is in volumes 3 and 4, Fairy Dance, which were utterly devastated by the anime.

They're great. Still a bit high on the "Kirito solves everyone's problems", but I liked the original novels too, so I might be biased.
>>
>>154771388
No. SAO's lack of quality is grossly exaggerated, since it actually got SOME things right.

Things like Umaru and Lucky Star are the industry's real low-points. Boring shows about nothing that promote hikki culture.
>>
>>154780187
They're legitimately good. There's actual plot and character development and stuff. It will literally never be finished but it's definitely worth reading.

Digi has literally the worst taste ever. He watches an introductory episode and says at the end of it, "Yeah, not gonna watch anymore of it, not moe/pretentious enough for me"

His taste is it's got to be 'cutesy moe shit' or vicarious wish fulfillment romance' or 'pretentious artsy bullcrap'
>>
>>154779858

>>154781380
He just advocates the 1 episode rule over the 3 episode rule. Shows with bad first episodes almost never get good when you think about it, so the 3 episode rule is just a waste of time.

False modesty is the fucking worst.
>>
>>154783979
Well you have to consider the little things.
Asuna uses a rapier.
Kirito uses straight swords.
You'd have to be a pretty shitty fencer to have a straight thrust slower than a swordsman's cut from a wrath guard, or even a fool's guard.
No matter how fast you are, a straight thrust from a rapier is pretty tough to beat.
Not to mention Kirito pumped his STR because straight swords get pretty heavy. Asuna on the other hand could work on DEX more because her weapon is light as all hell.
>>
>>154784429
>Implying Kirito isn't completely maxed out in every stat and couldn't beat Asuna as well as any other player in a single blow
You better take that back before the universe decides to kill you for daring to mock the glory that is Kirito
>>
>>154782883
MLP is actually a top tier anime though
>>
>>154784674
Kirito wasn't level capped by the time he got out of Aincrad. Assuming stat points are given by level, naturally his stats wouldn't be either.
Also I don't know about players If there were better players than him, why would Kayaba make Kirito his protege?, but he seriously just about got his ass handed to him by the guard in the first floor dungeon.
>>
>>154784892
Obviously the game creators were intentionally trying to limit his power or else he would destroy the entire game with his limitless skill
>>
>>154784956
Kirito was good, but he was no Touch Me.
I'll just remind you that the devs of Overlord's game actually nerfed his playstyle in direct response to how gamebreaking Touch Me was using it.
And he was still the best player in the game by far.
