The fact that it has only been 7 episodes and so many people rate it so high is all the proof I need to show that it's overrated. Add in all its flaws (that NO ONE has bothered to defend) just makes it even easier.

Also, now that I think about it, why can't I use Tari Tari as an example? Who cares about the genre? It's all about the quality of the storytelling, and in my opinion it's far better. So it's a perfectly valid example of how SAO is overrated.


Either that or it could mean that it's a masterpiece (I'm not saying it is), just because alot of people like it doesn't mean that it's overrated, it means peoplle are overrating it, don't blame the anime for the fans. And because like you said in your profile "Here's an example. I gave High School DxD a 10. And you might ask, "Why? The story's not that complex, and the characters aren't that developed. It's just a bunch of boobs and action." The thing is, I'm not watching High School DxD for super complex story or psychological analysis. I'm watching for nice action, boobs, and great comedy. And it does that admirably. So as long as the anime just works without too many flaws, it's generally getting a good score." , then why are you holding SAO to the same scale that you are Tari Tari even though they are different genres of anime, and you can watch it for different reasons. And even here "Also, I judge anime compared to their own genre. Just because I gave K-ON!! a 10 does not mean that I think it has better storytelling or whatever compared to something like, say, the first season of Fate/Zero. It's judged relative to their own genre, so it just means that K-ON!! is a really good slice of life.

You just admitted yourself that you should compare an anime to it's own genre

Just because a large amount of people rated it a high score doesn't mean it's not overrated. I could say Neon Genesis Evangelion is overrated even though it has a high number of people praising it.

And finally, the very definition of overrated means that there are more people rating it highly than it should. You denying it by bringing up the amount of people rating it highly is, frankly, not going to work.


And because a large amount of people rate it high doesn't mean it is overrated. You could say that, I dont care.

Yes you got the definition right, bravo. But of course since over half of the people who have ever watched it rate it above 8 that means that on this site it is not overrated

Jeez, are we gonna call it a day on this thread? This forum, more like?

Let's put it this way: neither side is going to reach a conclusion with this amount of bickering and condescension. Whatever. If you hate the series, you can always drop it or come back every week to talk about what you hate about it. If you like the series, just enjoy it for what it is. No need to try to convince anyone that this series is great or whatnot. Whether something's overrated is totally subjective anyway.

Oh right, I wrote that on my profile. Silly me, I got to into my SAO dehyping. :)

Oh well, absence of proof doesn't mean proof of absence. As I previously stated, 30.6 % rating it a 10, more than any percent? Yeah, that's overrrated all right.

Yes it does. At this point you're just denying the definition. We're arguing that there shouldn't be a large amount of people rating it high.

Also, I just have to ask. Do you seriously think that SAO deserves the stats it does, in that more people are giving it a 10 instead of any other rating? 30.6%, seriously?

...I can't tell if you're trolling or not. What we're doing is arguing that those people are WRONG. Who cares what they're rating, we're arguing what it SHOULD BE, popularity of our opinion be damned.

Even though I'm not that far in, the reason I enjoy this so much is because the fact that I can relate to it because I play MMORPG's, am I a hardcore gamer? No, but it's just awesome being in the world of an MMORPG.
But that's just me..

But I know that's just them being nice. People who are nice to me are also nice to everyone else. I almost end up forgetting that...
Someone who's worked hard at being alone doesn't fall for the same trick twice. I'm a veteran at this, I'm the best there is when it comes to losing. That's why I'll always .. Hate nice girls."

Well, I read the light novels long before the anime was even announced and thought it was pretty good. But although the premise is interesting, the author kept on piling on cliche after cliche until the series got somewhat tiring to read. So I was quite surprised with this anime's hype. Since I didn't think the light novels were that amazing, I do believe this anime is overrated. It's a good anime alright. It's just not as groundbreaking as a lot of people are making it out to be.

If you mean proving that you are a hypocrite who will compare something unfairly by your own standards just because you are irritated that an anime is getting more attention than your Tari Tari then silly you. And that could mean that it's one of the greatest anime of the century, if 30% have rated it below a 9 couldn't that mean that they are all underrating it.

No I just think you are jumping the gun on the overrating parade, I don't think it is considered overrated until it is over. No I would not rate SAO a 9 or a 10 I am one of the 20% who rated it an 8 and am waiting for it to end or for there to be something big that will make me want to change my score either way. But I realize that the MAL ratings are not necessarily "correct" but they do reflect everybody's opinions equally, I also don't get angry at the ratings and know that the ratings don't coincide with my opinions usually.

People liked it enough that the whole LN series got animated to a finish, so I am just one person Shana didn't click with. SAO will probably finish with the first RPG because in the LN series the story continues for three more RPGs.

As many said episode one was great and different from others, I would also said that episode 2 at end where he talks about him being greatest only to make them stop arguing and focus thier anger on him. Self sacrificing protagonist is always to my liking.
Everywhere death and fear od dying.
Then we have rest off episodes up to 7 and if I correct there still will be more of them.
What are they about. They are mostly showing characters, build up relationship, and most important thing they are showing a concept, how is it to live in a game. We have already many animes that are about sword fighting, defeating monsters and saving friends, but there are not so many that adding game concept to it.
Also times when characters are laughing are as important as most dramatic moments.
They can't be skipped because the last effect wouldn't turn out to be great.

the setting:
Interesting start -> happy time -> something tragic and you can't think of a way that it can end in a god way-> characters overcome overcome this problem and we have a happy ending, where you smile and cry in the same time.
This is formula that I found in the stories (not only anime) that for me were most interesting, and I had them in mind for a long time.
Analyze some titles and you will be able to find something like this in many pieces.

Anyway if this be something like that or not I don't know,
back to question why SAO is overrated, well first episode was really great, there is not many titles with a start like this, which make you (well atleast me) want to know what will happen next, there is just no way that I will not watch it to the end, and if it will turn out good I will read novel as well.
New titles always give hope that they will turn out to be great because we don't know them yet (that apply not only to anime) and all we have at start is trailer or no more that 3-6 sentencess about them. We want them to take 10/10 and beat all others.

That is what happens when you join in the middle of everyone's debate/arguing/trolling stuff comes from and goes everywhere. I saw a post about Shana on the thread and felt like sticking my nose in there.

Also Gundam forums are way WAY worse than that, fans will start talking about Gundam 00 then the conversation somehow someway always turns into a SEED vs Universal Century debate with people cursing each other for liking something-else.

I apologize to Shana fans for the joke, but I just did not like that series as much as I thought I would.

Yeah it's all because a troll posted that SAO is the worst show of the decade, and then someone decided to go along with it and say that goes to shakugan no shana and that's when you came in.

I don't care about the gundam forums, and just because somebody else does it doesn't mean it's ok, like every mom says "if your friends jump off a bridge would you?"

I don't love the anime, I am just saying that it's not the worst show ever.

Well for me, I was pretty wary after the first episode, initially giving it a 6. Being a non LN reader, the first episode didn't exactly meet the hype that was behind it. But little by little, I'm growing to love this anime. It's levelled up from a 6 to a 7.5 for me, but in terms of personal enjoyment its a 9. I've only disliked a couple episodes, that being episode 3 (the one where the girl dies) and the guild murder arc. But other than that, I've found that I look forward to watching SAO the most, even beating out Kuroko no Basket and Kokoro Connect, both of which I also love.

But I do agree its grossly overrated, especially during its initial weeks. It has been bumped down since then fortunately. For comparison, I definitely consider s1 of spice and wolf to be better than this, so its either spice and wolf goes up tremendously in ranks, or this (along with the rest of the overhyped top 100s) goes down to the 90s or low 100s.

That said, I still love this anime (mainly because I fantasize of living in SAO xD)

if it was in the non-linear order like the LN, it would make less sense and it would end in a shit way

doing it in chronological order allows them to get all the introductions out the way and gives them a better way to end the cour

it was either start off bad and get better or start off awesome and get shitter

And, 8.60? Sure It's Getting Overrated. Not That I Mean It's Overrated.

How the heck is it at 8.60 with all the random crap that's going on in it? Are people rating it even watching it? Although it started getting better at episode 7.

It isn't overrated. If the average score is 8.6 then that means it deserves that score. It is the AVERAGE score between all raters which means that the majority voted it to be good. People that think it is overrated is just unhappy that the score is not what they wanted it to be. Sure some people may think it sucks but the score is what matters. An anime is rated by what the watchers think of it not how it is made.

Also i think the people that go as far as to say the anime is terrible and gives it a 0/10 is just mad that it did meet up to its hype. If they pretended that they never heard of sword art online before and the LN and rate it like any other anime i'm sure things would be different.

An anime that a lot of people think is good with a minority that doesn't, the minority will intentionally try to drag down the anime to make it closer to what they really think. E.G. if they thought it would normally be a 6/10 it would then be scored 1/10 to make the average score closer. This is not about scores alone even discussions about the anime will have this result.

Nah, it's overrated.

It is definitely good, but not the best. And I'm not talking about MAL score, I'm talking about common sense. What breakthrough did SAO had bring to anime industry? What new plot did SAO had to offer their genre of anime? SAO is popular because it is easy to relate to with MMORPG gamers which is abundant nowadays, just like teenagers easier to relate to school love story drama.

People are EYEBALLING on the score of this Anime, the Anime is not done. We still have 16 episodes to go not to mention the whole ALO arc. So can't decide yet how good the Anime is since we hardly have see content of the actual story.

Some people go waaah side story sucks this anime is bad, it's not finished so stop reckless EYEBALLING on the score of this anime. The anime will eventually drop rating if the adaption is bad people aren't going to rate it good just cause the novel was good if you look at Fate/Stay Night VN which was really awesome, however the Anime got a score just below a 8, because the anime adoption wasn't as good as anticipated.

Guilty Crown...The weird thing about it is there were 22 episodes and they really should've just made it in a 25-episode season seeing how many plot holes they left. The art and the music are impeccable in that anime. Plus, the script writer is the same who wrote Code Geass iirc, which is why people had high expectations for it. The ending was also just...unexpectedly bad.

Back to the main topic. If so many people think it's overrated, why not just down rate it so it gets to where you think it should be? The 8.6 came from 17,000+ viewers. The series didn't ask to be rated so highly. It's really just members having different opinions...

Judging from how popular the series has become with all the ratings this show haS GOT WITH only 8 epsiodes aird so far which is like only a querter of the series and the fact that all of the light novels countine to be on the top of best sellers every week i think this series is going to be running for a long time i would bet this series is going to end up with a lot of episodes like bleach, naruto, Ranma 1/2 etc.. at the very least ithey will annouce a second season after the first season finishes i cant say if its overated since i have not seen it yet but with all the metion aboved its easy to predict

7.95 is still a really good score you know...
As a child, I was told that society is a melting pot of talents; knowledge and experience combined to form important alloys that will contribute to mankind. When I got to highschool, however, I thought that it's more like a river in which the water represents our peers while we ourselves are the stones in the river. Constant erosion by mindless majority sheeping has made us lose our unique edge. After I hit the age of 18, I realized that I've been wrong all along. Society is no melting pot. Society is no river. Society is a person, a very skilled rapist, and he has fucked us all.

Bullshit, Guess what was the last non-linear anime I know? Haruhi Suzumiya. Part of the reason why it's good was because it was played in a non-chronological order, if it had done the normal it would've been boring.

People are EYEBALLING on the score of this Anime, the Anime is not done. We still have 16 episodes to go not to mention the whole ALO arc. So can't decide yet how good the Anime is since we hardly have see content of the actual story.

Some people go waaah side story sucks this anime is bad, it's not finished so stop reckless EYEBALLING on the score of this anime. The anime will eventually drop rating if the adaption is bad people aren't going to rate it good just cause the novel was good if you look at Fate/Stay Night VN which was really awesome, however the Anime got a score just below a 8, because the anime adoption wasn't as good as anticipated.


7.95 is still a really good score you know...

that should be a "very good" score

its only because people rate mostly from 7-10 that they consider 7.95 to be mediocre

i myself am guilty for rating shows from 5-10

But yeah, the order was chronological is what killed it.


if it was in the non-linear order like the LN, it would make less sense and it would end in a shit way

doing it in chronological order allows them to get all the introductions out the way and gives them a better way to end the cour

it was either start off bad and get better or start off awesome and get shitter

kiss my ass, i meant story wise, not the anime itself, if you had read the LN, you would understand that the same non-linear format as the novels wouldn't cut it

and you completely ignored my second point, would you rather have all the boring introductions at the end when they should be doing something more suitable as an ending? like something epic?

you can't compare it to haruhi's non linear order when thats a completely different series

iirc, haruhi did the non-linear order so that they can save the best part
for last

SAO is doing it in chronological order so that they can also save the best part for last

also your saying it like just because haruhi's non-linear format worked well, all non-linear anime should work fine as well when thats clearly wrong

SAO is more appealing to younger audience. (Not that it's bad.)

You honestly think that if we would to hand this to an adult professional critic he would rate it 8,6? No.
Both novel and anime.

Simple as that.
It might be good for what it's targeted.

PS.
Look at those people who rated it 10/10 when it aired withour even watching first 10 episodes.
It's like, yeah i saw that trailer, it looked great, 10/10, im not bothering watching the full movie though.

With the current content in the show, it is definitely shaping up to be a late bloomer.

The beginning content is inevitably dry, it almost reminds me of the pacing in steins;gate.

the non-linear method would never work in this anime. Its something only the LN could do and if the anime tried to imitate it, it would fail, hard.

but the problem with the chronological order is that bores the hell out of people first

well, at least it gets rid of the haters xD

i also thought of steins gate, it was seriously slow paced and boring then BOOM! in the middle at episode 12

i suppose the big BANG! for this anime would be episode 10...

and a bigger BANG! at episode 13

i can't wait to see the look on peoples faces-if replies have faces xD

This anime until now may be overrated, or better overhyped, but the truth is that I thought this anime would fail hard as it progresses until I read the 2 volumes of the light novel today. I realized that if people just calm down and wait, this anime can manage to deserve the high rating of 8.60 as it is now in the next episodes. Yes, they are THAT interesting All haters need to know that this anime is 25-episode long, which means they cannot judge it by the first 8 episodes. A viewer should have patience and faith in a show that shows potential. It may be boring until now because it shows the side-stories, but I will laugh hard when I'll see comments in the next episodes where the main story kicks in "I was waiting for this" or "SAO is indeed the best summer anime" or "I told you that the anime's second part would be the best" from people who dropped the anime or even rated it low.

To people who think that by saying this anime is bad they acquire a higher taste, please go read a complicated book or movie. They suit your higher "taste" better. So, stop being harsh thinking that you have the knowledge to criticize well an anime, when you don't have the qualities to judge a better anime. For you people to understand, Tatami Galaxy is an ACQUIRED taste. Legend of the Galactic Heroes is an ACQUIRED taste. FMA Brotherhood is an ACQUIRED TASTE. Mushishi is an ACQUIRED taste. Mononoke is an ACQUIRED taste. Mawaru Penguindrum is an ACQUIRED taste. Unique and innovative anime with beautiful art and innovative main ideas /themes such as nature , fate, non-war messages or just telling a common and everyday phenomenon like someone's love story using a different kind of engaging and ingenius story telling.

To cut a long story short, all the users discussing here should have in their minds and respect that there are people with different tastes, people with more experience in anime because they have seen many of them or even researched material for them and stop looking down on SAO because of it's first episodes. Be patient, for the storm is about to come.

Over and Out.
