Sword Art Online had so much potential, but the way it was handled was quite poor. The action scenes were amazing; but the characters were poor, the pacing was awful, the plot-holes were gaping, and it tried to do too much in a short period of time.

The result was SAO became a slightly above-average anime. If you like it, that's fine: that's your opinion... but statistically, it's far from the best anime ever made; or even close.

Never understood why people can't just enjoy things and ignore the things they don't like.

I loved the first half but when they all got elf ears i just could not take it seriously also has any one seen the special sword art offline which is on the DVDs and blue ray.

I couldn't take it seriously after they deleted death. Still enjoyed it, but not seriously.

You are not the only one. I think the biggest problem is that it was a moderately good anime adaption of an amazing light novel that got too popular. People wanted it to be more than it was or could live up to, and then when everyone was saying it was perfect, a lot of the more devoted people had a knee-jerk reaction to that and became very critical. It's like watching the eragon movie. On their own, each one is actually pretty good, but when compared to their sources, fans start to dislike them because they can't live up to the originals and were rushed.

I actually liked the anime, though I prefer the first arc over the second one.

Main downside of the anime in my opinion? It was rushed... So bloody rushed. They could've easily made it double it's number of episodes and become an excellent anime.

**shadowmageXD rolled a random image posted in comment #46 at This Week In Science ** I personally thought it was OK, but I respect other peoples opinion on it.

I really enjoyed it. It was far from the best, but even farther from the worst. I thought that the way the story flowed was a bit strange, as there were many gaping time gaps that were never really "filled" so to speak, as if nothing happened in that time period.

I recently finished the first novel and i'm halfway through the side stories part. The anime is pretty ******* accurate to the novels I suggest you read them. Here's a link to them they're all in the mobi format and can be moved straight onto E-readers. If you want to convert them there's a program called calibre which can do that.!cQ0EzYhR!OBC5PzWOvgtOHtWIDwbdRQ

The anime in general was fairly well adapted so I really liked it. It just simply got overhyped to **** , which ruined it's potential value.

And it's a real shame they didn't do 16.5...

How about just read the Light Novel which is actually kind of decent.
