I was just curious if anyone wanted to chat. I dunno, I'd just like to hear what's going on with you guys...

edit: feeling lonely again. Anyone care to chat?

No one seems to be responding to me, my inbox is barren, and I have not much to do. Boredom like this makes me feel incredibly mundane and sluggish. So yeah, I just might sleep early tonight.

Now, I'm not too huge on Anime; but I've come to really like a lot of each one's charm. Also, I haven't seen a lot of bad animes so I'm not sure what to go off of. I've mainly watched all the mainstream ones like the gem that is Kill la Kill or possibly Attack on Titan. But my god, when I saw Sword Art Online, I knew I HAD to review it. So, shall we begin?

~The Animation

I'm going to tell you right off the bat, where it fails tremendously, it succeeds immensely. The animation, is an example of where it gets everything right. It feels believable and the action scenes are incredibly well-crafted. Overall, this anime feels like an escapist. Most people who like it enjoy the idea of being in this videogame. Which I will get to in a bit.

RATING: 9.5/10

~The Overall Concept

Now this is where the first three episodes were very stable and extremely concrete. The entire idea, was an incredible idea. They also really did their research and knew who they were appealing to. Now for the reason critics give it a bad rating...

RATING: 8/10

~The Story Arc

Need I say more? This was by far the second worst part of the Anime. And I'm getting to the first. This is where that stability of the series I was talking about went completely off-balance. It takes a lot to ruin something so great and, they did it. What seemed like a good story went right down the toilet with the ungodly amount of filler present. They take a good idea, and go nowhere with it. It comes off as a massive misuse of potential. I'm not going too in-depth on it, but now here comes the WORST part.

RATING: 6/10

~The Characters

By far this is the thing that makes me cringe the most in SAO had to be just how poorly they wrote the characters. The biggest character derailment there had to be was Asuna. Literally, she starts off this noble kick-butt girl who happens to not be very good at the game at first, but when she gets it, she fights incredibly. The very next episode, she turns into some stereotypical female trope. Then, oh god in the second part, she literally becomes that of a Princess Peach.

Also, there are several characters who only seem to get an episode of screen time which annoys me to no end. Too that off with Kirito being some bad-ass and the writers constantly shoving it in your face. All they do is ramble about him being a chick magnet by having every one of the few girls in the game all over him. It gets annoying and makes the plot even more shallow than before. I'm afraid I can't go on, just watch it and you'll immediately see what else is wrong with it so long as you're not some blinded fanboy/girl of the show. No offense, just can't see anyone rating this as a "spectacular anime". With that said and done, the rant is over.

RATING: 4.5/10

~~~~

Now that we have all the ratings, let's get our average and see how it did.

*drumroll*

Yep, a 7/10. So tell me, is this rating fair? Or do you have differing thoughts? Shoot me a comment and I'll consider it.

So yeah, I noticed this child was spewing mere drivel on this channel. It is complete nonsense and I assure you, by the end of a video you will be praying for the fate of humanity. So I did like any reasonable person would do and post some criticism on their channel. Well, now said child is using his allies of other children (I am hoping) to try and take me down. Except instead of actually making any form of a half-decent argument they are just making really stupid comments. You know, the ones that either cause one to laugh like a hyena or just simply give a headache. I will make a journal later slamming these comments I got from them to the ground.

So what's the lesson here? Don't think or criticize, or you may just have a hoard of insecure toddlers on your ass.

hey i hate to be a hairball -- but your commisions which are 80 points (which is basically a dollar) aren't really worth it. (the quality and style of your drawings, that is)
