There are people who legitimately believe SAO is a masterpiece and only hated by hipsters because of popularity.

There are people legitimately believe Kiritio is one of the best protagonists while Asuna is one of the greatest love interest.

There are eople legitimately believe the show had deep, thought-invoking writing.

Yes, and...?

I hate SAO's fanbase more than the actual show.

I enjoyed it for the first 10 or so episodes, simply because of self insertion. But it's no work of art, and there's nothing outstanding about the plot. It's like junk food of anime.

My response was one of sincerity, soon to be none again, so that I may cum again, illusions rule my mind, this fabricated reality to never end. You can run; however, where you going to hide from the power of the 2D? The animated repercussions of what the Nipponese have done. I've no understanding except for which waifu has won. So don't pretend I ever asked for this, for that which is now upon us, just let me fade into the incandescent midnight, this empty space where I am left to dwell.

Okay, can anyone actually tell me why they think SAO is that bad? What is it that everyone hates about it, why do they think it's so terrible? I just can't see it. Perhaps it's because I have shit taste, but my shit taste isn't what's stopping you from watching it or enjoying it.. So what is?

That's SAO alone. Can't say about ALO since I didn't watch all of it, but from what I could tell, it was just going to be a pathetic revenge fantasy of Kawahara's where the evil guy just wants to steal Kirito's super hot girlfriend.

I enjoyed SAO, but that part alone nearly killed it for me. I could take the rest of the shit, I didn't have problems with most of what you said, I actually thought it did a good job of portraying two idiot teenagers falling in love, but jesus fucking christ what kind of retard spends 99% of the show making it be a game setting with actual rules (some of them stupid and arbitrary, but rules), and then LOL LOVE IS OP.

>>100854275
I don't understand it myself either. Yeah, no one's going to accuse it of being world-alteringly amazing, but it was fun, and most of the "plot holes" people talk about aren't even plot holes, just people being too stupid to actually follow along.

Izayoi and Touma are pretty great, though. That's hardly a damning condemnation.
>>
>>100855629
>>100855491
The only two kinds of people that reply to these threads are trolls and shitposters.
As to your question: most normalfags found it entertaining, although most of them will agree it was badly written. /a/, and most other boards on 4chan, tend to hate it with a passion. Partially because it was bad, mostly because it's popular and the fanbase is utter shit.
>>
>>100855855
>Touma
>great
He's pretty average. Maybe above average, but only because the MC standards are generally low.

>Kirito hacking the system to save Yui
I don't think "hack" means what you think it means.
Yui was logged onto that console, and Kirito used Yui's credentials (which were still in use).
>Kirito winning the final boss battle in a video game through willpower
How so? He stabbed Heathcliff a second before his avatar shattered (anime made it look like he died, and came back to life........)
Asuna used "The Power of Love" and "Willpower" WAY more than Kirito did...
>Kirito's battles being monotonous hack n slashing like he's button mashing the same button over and over
I don't understand thsi point
>Heathcliff having barely any motive at all for putting the lives of thousands in lethal danger
Can't you tell he's a sociopath with a fantasy he wanted to achieve? He basically succeeded in his motive/goal, by the time episode 1 starts, seeing as his motive was to create a fantasy world of his own.

Except they don't. By normalfags I assume you mean regular anime fans who liked the show, not the actual real usage of normalfags that newfags coming here wrongly use. Because the correctly used normalfags wouldn't watch SAO in the first place, and would probably laugh at it.

>>100856078
So who watched it and enjoyed it?

Oh no! People have legitimate opinions that differ from yours?!? There must be something wrong with them!!!

SAO was pretty good first cour but fell hard in ALO and was never a masterpiece
Kirito a shit
I wish it wasn't a mainstream anime
>>
>>100856151
I do. I don't really see a problem with that. Yes, the story is flawed, and the characters lack development in the early parts of the story, but I still enjoyed it.

I don't see why I should hate it, or not enjoy it.
Enlighten me.
>>
>>100856151
I was disagreeing with you on the part about them actually thinking SAO was badly written.

Regular anime fans, the ones outside of /a/, enjoy the show immensely and believe it's an actual good show. They consider the fact that Kirito is their avatar self-insert (Probably unaware of this directly), that it fulfills their teenage dreams of living in a video game world, and having gorgeous gamer girlfriend Asuna are aspects that make the show a good anime.
