What anime deserves more love?
This is one of those titles that has a following, so it does get some love, but it also seems to be the target of a lot of hate. I am talking about Sword Art Online and I’m sick of all the negativity.
Why does it deserve more love?
I think it is looked down on because it contains a harem. It’s not quite like Highschool DxD, but there are multiple female characters that all appear to take an interest in Kirito. For whatever reason, this just seems to anger some people.
They don’t think Kirito deserves the attention, even despite the strength he’s acquired in the game, the way he looks out for others, or his general good guy demeanour. Some like to moan about how basic the story is. Whatever!
This is a really fun series with some fairly dark ideas, an interesting relationship, and some cool characters. I ended up watching the entire first season in a week, and the last seventeen episodes within twenty-four hours. Netflix was about to take it off the service and I was ten episodes in…
Would you recommend it to someone that hasn’t seen it?
Absolutely. As I said, it has a lot of different aspects and covers some very interesting topics. The idea of being trapped inside a virtual world where dying means dying in the real world is fascinating.
Anything else you’d like to say?
This kind of harks back to something I said in the subtitle/dubbed debate. I don’t see the need to compare series and characters. Especially if you seek to crap on something someone else enjoys. All of this is subjective. Not everyone is going to like the same things, why make it competitive and toxic. Just chill!
