Why does almost everyone on the Internet trash SAO? Is it really that bad?
>>
There's worse stuff but SAO is popular.

Bad and popular.

So there.
>>
Yes. It's basically Fifty Shades of Grey but for 14 year old MMOfags.
>>
>>121450122
I dunno, maybe you should form your own opinion.
>>
>>121450122
It's not really that bad. Honestly, it's one of the smartest animes of all time. But it's also not good.
>>
>>121450122
no. it's actually even worse
>>
>>121450208
>smartest animes of all time

Go away Kotaku.

>>121450171
That's a good enough answer, there you go OP.

It's a shitty fan-fiction with a self-insert godmode MC and a shitload of forced drama. The first two episodes are good, but that's it.

Watch .//hack instead.
>>
I don't know actually. I actually didn't particularly like it about halfway through, but I see SAO get shit on by just random people who haven't even watched it nowadays.

It becomes garbage as it goes on, so it couldn't hurt people to just try it out before shitting all over it.

It feels really strange to see SAO get shit on by normal people as well.

Why is Inori in SAO?

No! everyone in the internet must be lying to you anon!
Now go and watch the two seasons.
Marathon them if possible.

It's immensely popular among casuals, so /a/ will hate it forever and ever. But in all honesty, the first half of both seasons is really good, followed by a boring and terrible second half.

The male-to-female ratio is not like I remember from my MMORPG days.

>>121450122
It's one of the big babbys first anime. It's not really that shit but it's average while being wildly popular.
>>
>>121450335
Believe it or not, it has got to the point where casuals have begun to parrot the SAO hate. It is especially commonplace for people who pretend to know a lot about anime even though they either don't watch anything or just started watching.
>>
>>121450335
I'd say SAO hate is more popular than SAO at this point. Not to say it isn't bad, but it would be really funny if there was this trend reversal in the near future where /a/ starts liking SAO because normalfags hate it.
>>
>>121450335
>the first half of both seasons is really good
No.
>>
>>121450395
It would be legit if they were males playing with female characters, like Tetra from LH.
>>
>>121450122

There's stuff a lot worse.

But it's mainly because con-fags and JP-fags are really into that shit.
>>

Give pageviews pls

The problem lies in the concept in which the main character can't lose and at the same time is the best player in the game. There is no trial only completely devastating everything in his way. His biggest failures are everyone else around him failing.

>protagonist gets trapped in a video game

It's the most lazy neckbeard self-insert ever
Complete trash

This is true. You can't go anywhere on any image board and on any select board without getting flamed for mentioning SAO in positive way.

It's almost the same for Attack on Titan, except SAO gets way more hate.

They don't call 4chan the internet hate machine for nothing. I'm sure /a/ started it.

The cave episodes of Sinon's arc were pure Mozart. Don't try to prove me wrong, faggots.

That is one ugly ass. Would not hit it.

I don't know. I wouldn't give /a/ all the credit. Japan holds a similar sentiment.

/a/ was pretty loud about it, but I guess this just shows the natural progression. I mean, it took 3 years to get to where it is now.

>>121450254
Yeah, watch hack. Just remember not to take your sleeping pills cause they would just go wasted.

Which one's worse, SAO or Guilty Crown?

Has the latest volume been translated by the way?

>>121451640
I'd say guilty crown, the first half of SAO was not that bad
>>
>>121452319
Yes it was.

>>121452363

not as ALO though, shame they skipped so much

Some people get super pissed when mediocre things get popular.

SAO
But they are both generaly good shows

>>121450298
>every pink haired girl is Inori
>>
>>121452562
Pretty much this. SAO is okay but waaay to overhyped, making it an excellent hater-magnet.
>>
It's not that bad. People just trash on it because it's extremely popular for its quality.
>>
>>121450122
There's hardly anything worse.
Only show I dropped.
>>
Remember when /a/ had daily threads about how awesome the LN's were way before the anime was announced? Hipster effect at it's finest.

Good.
>>
>>121450122
Because it's got an overall low quality (pacing is terrible, animation isn't exactly fantastic, the story is cliche'd , etc) but it's very popular. Bad things becoming very popular tend to cause long term trends towards bullshit, so people who actually like anime for what it is aren't happy to see something barely breaking the line into mediocrity being one of the most popular anime of the last 10 years.

Something as offensively bland as SAO being as popular as it is doesn't leave a whole lot of room to expect good things from the industry.
