SAO was fine. The last part of ALO was also alright.
The .Hack series were pretty good. I'm was just sad that //ROOTS was spend most of the time with Haseo sitting in the emo-corner.

Gotta love it when rules are being worked on so hard to create a realistic universe, yet in the end they're all disregarded because of the power of love.

Nothing beats the power of Love, Pokey, you should know that.

I always love the fact that this thread always goes back to talking about SAO even though it's been beaten to death and has been over since January. Just goes to show how popular it is and attracts all sorts of people. Then again I guess I lament the Kevin effect where SAO became mainstream like Mad-Okaz so I can't be hipster about it anymore.

On the other hand main reason I still am a crazed SAO partisan is that it struck a nerve with me by compiling all the stuff and genre's I wanted.

SAO Arc: Life and Death, the Boundaries of Real Life and Virtual Life
ALO Arc: Greed, Love and Dedication. Plus Familial relationships.
GGO Arc: Power and isolation.
Mother's Rosario Arc: Applications of technology in the Medical Field.
Alicization Arc: Artificial Intelligence, The Military and the meaning of the Human Soul itself.

Lawl. Yeah half of the story was internal monologues anyways so w/e.

The whole MMO aspect was just the draw. Heck I liked .Hack and Rockman.EXE to the point that my username is a compilation of the two. So yeah.

Anyways I love you all fandom, indifferent opinion generators, and hatedoms. <3

I haven't seen anything of SAO apart from the first anime so idk about any other arcs than SAO and ALO. :p But anyway, speaking of my stance on it, I'm not really a hater. I'm just kinda indifferent towards it. Lappy called it garbage but I still checked it out, nonetheless. I think it is just a decent anime. Those who call it garbage should look at anime like K-on. Now that is...really bad. I curse myself for wasting my time on it expecting some sort of exciting stuff. :(

I'm a big fan of things based on virtual reality too but this series just didn't do it for me. I mean, it ain't like I hated any part of it (except the scene where asuna almost gets tentacle raped) but there's nothing I loved either. I couldn't connect emotionally with any of the characters. It just didn't manage to pull me into its world or the lives of its characters.

And it has just been, what, three months? Anime series like GTO and Berserk were completed over 15 years ago (iirc) and people still talk about them. Yeah, even on PC and not just on those other anime sites. :p But comparing SAO to them ain't exactly fair. Those anime were...really different. And both are amazing, imo.

I'm terribly confused about what number, Netto. :B Since Dero's the only one in your post, I'm going to go with 1.
Thank you very much for clearing my confusion, Dero~ Still 1.

I think SAO shouldn't recieve all the hatred it collects. It wasn't that bad, and overal quite enjoyable. I missed some emotional connection with some of the characters, but Kirito was an okay main character.

Yeah, exactly, it wasn't bad. I dislike it when things get hated on just because they're mainstream/popular. Credit should be given where due. Always. K-ON WASSSSSSSSSSS BBBBBBBAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAADDDDDDDDDD THO

Twas a 0. Didn't wanna bother to make a number.

Anyways I could have chosen two routes when the anime adaptation came out.

1. Hate the anime adaptation for all the cuts, out of place fan service, the forced chronological order, rather than the main story to side story initial release.

or...

2. Just learn to accept that it's an anime adaptation with limited time, budget and media constraints.

People I knew convinced me at the time to just get over it and just realize that it's a companion to the Light Novels.

ANYWAYS... <3 ya'll no matter what. Just loving something that is controversial or "Not a level grind adventure to a goal with blood and gore" with it's share of haters taught me to hate opinion generators and elitist critics who think that they have a PhD in Animeology and that their opinions are the Word of God.

but hating those who spread hatred continues the cycle of hatred, netto. WE MUST STOP THE CYCLE OR IT'LL BE OVER FOR HUMANITY.

Tho yeah, agreed. I dislike elitist anime guys too. Though I always read their opinions. They're generally entertaining to read, lol.

In the end an anime is to be enjoyed by the viewer. If you enjoy something that the world hates, no one could and should stop you from enjoying it. :B

Double 0's? You guys are serious today. |D

Yeah I know it became a cycle of hate, went through it too for the whole 2 cours the anime was out called it a stupid trench war. Still it had the effect of making me jaded about things. I realized there's no use reasoning with people like that so I just tune them out if possible. Still I ever do hope that such people drop the whole thing. It's freaking annoying to hear how much they hate something...OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER...every week. OK I get it. Just go away already. @-@

Yeah, I know the feeling though. Hakuouki is one of my favourite series, but the staff review on Minitokyo gives it a two. : < The anime has its flaws, certainly, but I find a "2" harsh to look at, specially when I know just how detailed the background (of the game) and how much effort was put to keep it historically correct in the context of the story.

I see. Easy does it~

Well one thing at least I could be thankful for is the Bad Publicity paradox. More people picked it up than I expected when O read the Light Novels before the anime came up just to see what the fuzz was about. T least people know what the EF I'm talking about now lol

When something earns astronomical popularity, people will talk. Nobody can honestly stop them. And generally with popularity comes fair share of the so-called haters. This is more apparent on the internet than in real life, though. People just don't have time for crap like that irl. Internet will always have its share of vocal minority which enjoy calling stuff crap just because it is popular and they're all hipster beings.



This guy, for example. Makes a 13 minute video with nothing to say besides "I hate **** because they're mainstream. Mainstream = bad". I honestly feel a strong dislike towards people like them. It is okay to dislike something if you dislike certain aspects of the said thing and have experience. But it is definitely not okay to call stuff crap if you haven't even given stuff a fair chance and don't have reasons other than "lol itz mainstream/popular so itzz crap".

The worst part? There are times when I have acted like one of them too. Like, for instance, I labelled Fairy Tail as a rip-off of One Piece once. Called it a duplicate. And posted "proofs", even. :(

Sorry K-ON! fans. But I hate it. And I will continue to do so no matter what happens. :(ALSO TARA gawd gurl you're so rude sheesh

It's all about expectations versus what you get. You expect a music series but get moe-blob, of course you don't like it. If you expect the well-written epic that everyone's talking about, but get a milked-out show where cool factor appears to be more important than common sense, of course you're gonna get disappointed by that.

And then there's the stuff that's objectively, genuinely bad.

Manga has comic pages.

LNs are basically just novels.

A LN is an actual novel, with words and a few illustrations. I have one of the DGM novels, which is a reading book, with 2 illustrations per story (there are 3 stories per novel). They're usually not very lengthy, though.

So it's pretty much like any book for young teens.
They're usually written in a very simple way, too. Let's not confuse the kiddies.
