gateway anime of the worst kind
>>
>>101625069
how is this gateway are you stupid?
>>
What for?
You didn't even state what you want to discuss.
>>
>>101625212
it's a bad series, a clusterfuck of story and characterization which isn't well done by any aspect
>>
It's trash, just like this thread
>>
It tries to compensate its weaknesses with excessive shipping faggotry and self insertion

Opinion buzzwords buzzwords

Great analysis of a solid 6.5/10 show there.

How does it feel like to hate fun?
>>
I finished SAO today, I don't see why everybody hates it.

The characters aren't great, but they aren't bad either.
All I see is people just yelling "mary sue mary sue" and that's it.
Also, why do people think Oberon was a bad villain?

The consensus seems to be that the story was a disaster towards the end, but I don't really see why.
Tell me if I'm wrong, but I didn't spot any major plot holes. The ending was satisfying.

Also, you can dress Kirito up as a girl in Hollow Fragment.

because /a/ is a circlejerk of faggots who think moe anime is the epitome of human creation

Fanbase, things like >>101632286 >>101626623 don't help in making them look less retarded.

Powermad cackling evil scientist #234412
>plot holes
Did they ever elaborate on what happened to the evil brain lasers?
And I think they went back to playing these kinds of MMOs at the end, didn't they? Completely uncalled for.
And the problem I personally had with Kirito was that he was such a perfect special snowflake. Gameplay-transcending powers because protagonist, every girl wants his dick because protagonist. And don't give me that shit with "but his weakness is that he always cares about other people", that argument is utter shit and just another character strength, selflessness.
Worst show alongside Mirai Nikki in recent years.

And fuck off with the "you're a moe anime hipster". I enjoyed shows like Minami-ke as much as shows like Berserk and Kill la Kill so far.

>>101632146
It was good until it became a bad teenage romance.
>>
>>101632681
>Powermad cackling evil scientist #234412
I get how the lack of moral ambiguity makes people think he's not a great villain, but imo that's not enough to make him bad.
He's just a normal solid bad guy. Logical motives, consistent character. Just because he falls under a trope doesn't make him bad.

>Did they ever elaborate on what happened to the evil brain lasers?
Not that I know, but that's not a plot hole.

>And I think they went back to playing these kinds of MMOs at the end, didn't they? Completely uncalled for.
Not really.

>Kirito was that he was such a perfect special snowflake
It makes sense for every girl to want his dick because he's so powerful.
And at one point Kayaba mentions that the game is set up to have a "hero to face the evil", or something along those lines.
>>
>>101633535
Why is he so powerful? Because he's the 1-in-10,000 super special snowflake who happens to be the only one to actually want to leave? The first 10,000 people to get into an MMO and there's only ONE powergamer?
>>
>>101625238
/a/ likes guilty crown and that is all the things you mentioned. Train wrecks are fun
>>
>>101633662
Wouldn't asuna be another power gamer, and his male friend.
>>
>>101633740
SAO isn't a trainwreck. It's just shit.

It's shit.

But /a/ will watch s2 anyway

is not that is bad
the first 12 episodes were realy good
and the ending was perefect
if it had end at that time

>>101632681
>Powermad cackling evil scientist #234412
Agreed. Sugou is the worst villain in SAO. Too generic. Prefer Kayaba, and his chuu2

>Did they ever elaborate on what happened to the evil brain lasers?
I don't believe they did, though I'm pretty sure the government just took it for different research. In fact, I think his research was used to help create Project Alicization, in the 4th arc.

>And I think they went back to playing these kinds of MMOs at the end, didn't they? Completely uncalled for.
They're all crazy?

>Gameplay-transcending powers because protagonist
The author applies this to both his works. Additionally, the 4th arc of SAO is a lot more about this. Also, Asuna happens to break the game more often than Kirito does.

>>101633662
More than half the players are too scared to leave the starting city.
Then there's Aincrad's apparently unfair distribution system, that makes farming in a party, less advantageous (though safer) than farming solo. It's a matter of safety over risk, for progression.

Of course, many of the clearers are around his level anyways, and the only thing that makes him special is his reflexes, and Dual Blades (which is probably the most bullshit thing about him anyways)

>>101634184
I will watch S2, so that I may be more educated on how to hate it. That's why I tried to get through all of season 1.
>>
>>101633662
He was apparently the best beta player.

You seem like the kind of faggot that doesn't like something for some arbitrary reason and then questions even the tiniest detail of the plot for inconsistencies.
>>
>>101634434
>marahon shit shows just so you can shitpost
I don't understand why people do this.
>>
>>101634420
He doesn't "come back to life".

The real explanation is more bullshit.

He "slowed down the progression of his death," long enough to stab Kayaba.

And again, the part about "Willpower vs Da System" applies, as the Author reuses this concept almost all the time.
>>
>>101634524
It is not shitposting. I am going to sacrifice 20 minutes a week so that I may combat shitposters who genuinely enjoy it.
>>
>>101634529
>Willpower vs System
If kirito's mind is so strong to fight an super advanced A.I, Why is he not a psychic.
>>
>>101634791
>to fight an super advanced A.I
I don't think the AI is fighting back. In Accel World, for instance, the world doesn't even recognize that people are using their willpower to attack.
