I just downloaded this series at the recommendation of a girl I know from work

It has dual audio, so should I watch it in japanese with subs or is the dub decent enough?

Also, what am I in for?

Also, subs.

You should read the LNs instead.

Subs, always.

Story about people stuck in MMO

This could go two ways. You'll either love the series blindly, worship the author for his masterpiece wish so badly you were like Kirito and eventually branch out to eoten festivals and think that's the second coming of SAO... or you'll see the series go downhill after the first episode, realize it's absurdly story-breaking that the MC and what you could call his luck are so perfect, and agree that you need more than a good OST to cover up the abomination that is the second half.

Anyway, subs are the way to go. Don't bother with the dub; it's shit.

Shit. You'd better get out.

What do you mean?

Amazing premise that goes downhill from the first ep, absolutely ruined about halfway in the SAO arc, and un-watchable for ALO.

OP, I recommend not listening to her recommendations anymore. There are definitely better shows to watch...or better ways to spend your time in general.
>>
You could have just opened the fucking video to see which voices you like better. Why are you so stupid?
>>
>>101512107
OP here, just watched the first episode and I liked it but..

after reading these, I'm not too thrilled for the rest of the series

Read the novels if you like the premise.

The anime's a really shitty adaption. The novels do have their flaws, but the anime cuts fucking tons of shit, including stuff like 'Asuna's characterization' and a bunch detail about the world.

>>101512107
Its average in basically every way. Its not horrible, but nothing great. MC is ridiculously story-breaking like >>101512421 pointed out. Also watch it in subs if you watch it, dubs are almost always horrible. The novels are good; both SAO and Accel World (which are by the same author in the same universe) got fairly shitty adaptations.
>>
>>101512785
Just watch it so you can suffer like the rest of us.
>>
>>101513280
I concur
>>
>>101512107
Delete every episode past the first arc and you'll be happier
>>
>>101512107
Delete, get Accel World, and tell the girl she has shit taste
>>
>>101512107
Trash garbage.

Get friends with better taste.
>>
>>101512107
First arc is a pretty watchable experience, although ymmv depending on taste. Second arc adds nothing on top of the first arc, just more of the same and loses it's charm in the process. Nevertheless it is fun to watch if you enjoyed arc 1 and want more. The best run for your time is watching arc 1 + final episode.

Always subs. Unless you're that kind of person that likes dubs, then go nuts. I heard it's ok.
