Sword Art Online's effect of anime is slowly wearing off huh....

Apr 25, 2013 9:25 PM by GCBGTS

i honestly start to think that people start to make most confusing excuses just to hate on Bleach -_-

I just hope he manages to somehow smoothly connect it to the rest of Bleach, because that has always been a main problem with Bleach for me, the various arcs just seem to pop out when needed and don't come as naturally as in One Piece or even Naruto. But the anime fillers probably supported this impression and I never read the manga so who am I to judge.
-__- i don't remember anything that pop out of nowhere (exept for the fillers). everything is going smooth that what i like about Bleach. i really confused, maybe we watched diffirent serieses :O (or maybe you mean something diffirent)
anyway glad to see Conan on top ^o^

Nope.



Oh well, I was quite close.
Still, I believe they are giving quite a lot of episodes for ALO.
Or maybe it's just me, but I didn't enjoyed ALO as much as SAO

Still hoping for a 2do season with GGO ;_;


I think it'll be:


Leaving the 1st season aside, if SAO gets a 2nd season... I have no idea how it's going to be paced.
GGO was nice and all but Mother's Rosario was kinda boring imo and it was only 1 volume... so they can't really make a 25 episode series out of GGO and MR, and I don't think they can make a 12 episode one either... especially since it's awkward ending the 2nd season with the MR arc.

Alicization is definitely going to need a season of its own... (of course assuming 2nd and 3rd season will happen - which I hope it does).


It's obvious by looking at the sales that SAO is going to have more animated stuff.
Another thing that could happend is a movie for GGO, or a 12 episode season for GGO and a movie for Mother's rosario

I haven't read Alizication yet, I'm waiting for the 10th volume to be fully translated, but for what I heard, it probably will have a season for itself :3

Nice to see Magi,Kenichi,Ao no Exorcist and Bleach.But every week only SAO just booooooring.


no offense but that so true.

Tastes differ. Most of my friends disliked GGO but found MR very touching

I was surprised myself that they add all fishing thing. But I judged only from episode names.

ALO is different of cause but it has a lot of good action, less episodic story and the final which is on par with SAO's(but rather long epiloge ruins the mood... just a bit thought)

Sep 30, 2012 1:53 AM by Nachtwandler_21

Infinite Stratos IS the most overrated series. Only a person with no taste would buy the shitty MANGA for the series

Sep 29, 2012 11:35 PM by GodlyKyon

As usual all 10 volumes of SAO in the rankings

In the next episode preview for 12 it showed the whole fishing thing as being the next episode.

Yea but supposedly Kubo has been planning for this arc since 2009 (he mentioned that he's planning for the next 2 arcs in an interview in 2009, he forshadowed some things in the fight against Aizen and in the FB arc) and from the early spoilers Jump published (a reason for people to be looking forward to the last arc, since the anime ended and Bleach in general has been doing horribly for the last 2 years) it looks like he has lots of material to talk about other than dragging the arc pointlessly like he did with the Arrancar arc.

Sep 29, 2012 3:13 PM by Candor

Aww sheeeet, an even longer arc? Well, if they wait long enough with the anime to NOT need fillers I might just watch it for completionists sake.
But yeah, after accumulating fans for that long it won't just get cancelled.
