“Sword Art Online” Never Had A Purpose


One can practically hear the mass rejoice, as finally, Sword Art Online’s self-degradation will be over, and the timeslot its been wastefully occupying for 25 weeks can be returned to a series actually deserving.

Having spent years of his life inside an RPG game, the loser has found new strength as he runs down a street, in the real world no less, to the location of Sandwich-kun. And upon arriving to destined place, the scary antagonist, whose eyes are red and bulging to further emphasize his evilness, attacks the outcast Kirito – only to quickly have the situation flip on him thanks to the mad skills Kirito has acquired through playing RPG games.

To be fair however, it should have been obvious Kirito would win from the start seeing as protagonists never lose in Sword Art Online. (Anime, Sword Art Online)

i honestly can never take that site seriously they usually hate any aniime that's popular or they just have really high standards.....

I wonder what anime they do like.

Yeah I don't get it tbh. I bet these guys are the same people who say The Road had no purpose. SAO wanted to tell a story, and it did. Simple as.

everything from 2006 to 2012 sucks. And thank god there's still some sites with integrity to say it like it is unlike all those others rating every single crappy anime that came out this year with a 9/10 or 10/10.

Nah dude, they only dislike stuff they find bad. Just because SAO is popular doesn't mean you shouldn't criticize it. It has a story that is laughable, characters that doesn't amount to anything and other stuff. It's bad.

I'm currently holding off so I can marathon it. Oddly enough when I'm watching the show I feel an urge to play DC Universe Online.

see even haters of sword art online watch it. they are updated! that's why it's popular, haters and likers both watch sao. lolz I'm guessing sao will be the anime of the year 2012. Hope season 2 will be released in 2013 - Gun Gale Online

Yea this website is very stupid. They only review the downside of it. For example, they saying Asuna and Kirito don't clearly show romance. Apparently they do. This is the why Kirito and Asuna are the main character. Well typically for Kirito.

His whole mission was to save Asuna because she was stuck in the virtual world for like 5 years now. And Kirito wants to save her. Is thats not romance?

Secondly, the writer is saying that romance (read in some other article) doesn't take place in the virtual world and also that yui is a non-main character. Well who cares where they spent their family time, anyways. It's still romance and they're happy about it.

This site is clearly the worst site to get anime updates and such as that. I don't even see any good reviews. It's all negative.

If you all go to www.animenano.com every sword art online article are all positive.

And finally, the comments on sao articles are just like they want to agree with the writer and such as that. Sao is very popular to begin with.
