    I don't know how about you guys, but i get a feeling that OP of this thread was trolling.

    We do get one of these stray collab fangirls/boys once in a blue moon whether they use the forum or not.(I've met a few ingame b4 tho I just lurk and listen to their spouting of disappointment yada yada etc~) I think we just came on abit 2 strong and scared OP away. anime-phoenix-wright-261535.gif

    Well i did see A LOT of people who joined in Mabinogi just because it seemed to them that the game is just like SAO (which is NOT btw). I also saw TON of new players during SAO event who usually named themselves Kirito or Asuna. I would see like 10 different Kirito's and like 3 Asuna's everyday. It was hell lol.

    Don't join the hate-wagon plz. They're not so bad if you gave them a fair shot. Especially fate. Sad story. Quite an emotional ride..

    I'm not hate wagoning. I'd like to think I've invested a fair amount of time into both series. I didn't watch past the first arc of season one for SAO, but I did watch an episode here and there for season two. Main reason I didn't watch though was because I was hyped as heck when SAO first came out and started reading the novels shortly after I watched the first 3 or 4 episodes air. I ended up reading somewhere past Mother's Rosario which is probably the only good arc of SAO.

    I basically had no reason to watch the anime when I already knew the outcome of everything. Also doesn't help that the anime comes off way cornier than the novel just due to the medium. That said I still enjoyed the series and liked it some point in the past, but over time I watched more anime and read more manga. I've experienced way better series by now so honestly SAO just doesn't hold up as it used to for me.

    I used to love SAO for it's story, action, and world building. Especially since there was a bunch of stuff that was explained only in the novels due to anime time constraints. But looking back on it, it was just empowerment fantasy through Kirito a lot of the time and anything that I used to consider story and world building is just shallow cover for him to look "badass". Which just leaves it with some mediocre to good action. And even good action doesn't really make for a good story on it's own. Transformer movies are exactly known for their deep and compelling story in comparison at least.

    Now I haven't read fate/stay night VNs but as far as I'm concerned with the anime, it's issues are similar to SAO's. Everything that happens and the characters are all just devices to see some OP magic and sick explosions. Doesn't mean that the fights aren't fun to watch thanks to Ufotable, but the story is people die when they are killed. Fate/Zero is the only decent one, but the promotional was for Unlimited Budget Works soooo no story here, only "plot".

    Fate has too many seasons too many plots all for the same thing.

    From where I got up to until it became too troublesome to find translations it was interesting at least. Characters were kind of bland as always and the usual Kirito OP, but the artificial world and how it worked was quite interesting.

    I just got goose bump (in bad way) after watching terrible AD video up there....
    who made these....

    I actually cringed, since the game would actually require you to either grind or pay to actually do anything listed in the video...

    I didn't like SAO. But I won't stop others if they do. No pitch forks nor torches needed. ;)

    I heard the creator is in prison for something so the anime probably won't continue. Log Horizon was much better and was far more detailed so it would be cool to have a anime event for it.

    I forget where I heard it but it turns out he was charged for tax evasion which prevented him from continuing the novels for a while but according to his wikipedia page he has now paid off his taxes so there is a chance the series might continue.
