Is Sword art online any good?
I hate it
I heard its basically like the matrix mixed with fairy tale and code lyoko.
It's moderately enjoyable. There are a lot of notable flaws but several of them simply stem from the fact that not all of their time is spent in Sword Art Online.
If you want world building and keikakus in an MMO setting, watch Log Horizon . If you want MC beating the shit out of things in an MMO setting, watch Sword Art Online.
Holy shit I have not thought about that show in years.
SAO a shit
its fine if you dont over think it. if that makes sence
GET OFF /a/ NOW.
This place will ruin it for you.
Add shit and you may be onto something
It's like World of Warcraft except you're in the game and you fall in love with a girl in the game.
Dem Sugus tho
>Can't even make a quick google search
I tried so hard not to fall for it.
Naruto is a gateway, SAO is the destination.
I liked that shit when I was 12...oh god.
Most of the flaws in SAO come from the author's shit grasp on how MMOs work.
I genuinely enjoyed it while I was watching it, but when I think back on it, it sucked pretty bad. Not to say that you wont like it though.
It's the smartest anime I've ever watched.
Wait so an mmo anime that is nothing like an mmo? Fucking dropped already.
BUT IN THE END
IT DOESN'T EVEN MATTER
Its shit and this is basically why:
First 3 episodes are cool, episode 1 displays the crisis and the premise well, 2 starts the bond between Kirito and Asuna off well, she seems like a good female protag.
3 was probably my favourite episode of SAO as it started to develop how society dealt with the new virtual environment and how close everyone is to dying.
And then nothing.
The show 360'd into harem-esque filler, Gary Stu shitty antics, a fucking terrible tsundere Asuna and a plot twist that was so shit I ragequit at the end and didnt watch part 2 until 2 months after, which was worse then the first arc.
Dont watch this shit anon, dont do it. Go watch good shonen like Soul Eater or Cowboy Bebop, save yourself.
This is one of my favorite reaction images I never use.
>not reveling in the glory of COURAGE PUNCH
It starts off good just because of the premise...before slowly going down hill into shit. I dropped it at the ALO arc...apparently it got even worse which I didn't think was possible.
