You should get opinion from the fans and haters before decide to watch SAO anime or read SAO LN.

That's kinda what I'm trying to do here, I've heard the opinions of the countless haters, now I want to hear the fans' opinion.


I wouldn't call myself a SAO fan, and it's certainly not the best LN series I've read, but it is a good series.

If you're curious, read it for yourself, and go in with a neutral opinion rather than one shaped by haters, or indeed shaped by the anime at all.

It's worth pointing out that basically none of the actual criticism (as opposed to the bandwagon "it's cool to hate this series/x famous youtuber didn't like this series" that is the real reasoning behind most of the haters) people put on the anime applies to the novels at all, instead coming predominantly from the fact that the anime throws in side stories that are actually in later volumes of the series or SAO Progressive. Looking through all the top reviews of the anime on this site, this is the direct cause of their first and top complaint every time.

Is the SAO LN really that good? I can't bring myself to read it because all the hate and insult it received, so I'm wondering if it's really worth being at the top of every LN sale list...

He's been making the same stupid whining comments in every thread like this so what is so surprising about people getting tried of it? Regardless of what side you sit on there is a time to stop sounding like a broken record.

Yakusoku no Neverland's success really pleases me a lot. 56+ chapters and running strong still.

I hope this trend continues for rest of the year.

if ur going to hate on LNs actually read it first so ur opinons can be valid. if u r judging an LN by the anime then ur just making urself look stupid

anyways glad to see 3 gatsu and Hanabi up there

Btw, what do you think is bad about that show? I'd like to hear your opinion.
Nothing he just like to hate.
Well that's what to expect from a major weeb who's addicted to all Type/Moon Multimedia franchise.
(Games,Anime,LN,Manga, maybe he even got nendroids/figures)

This manga's plot is amazing and unique to find these days, it's the one that deserves an anime adaption the most.

i really miss the old day where all the anime were at the same time the best and the worst. But here someone take this garbage at a new level

Diamond no ace act 2 in top 10 is a blessing. the series is underrated

The top 20 of LN is a paradise (SAO, Re Zero, Overlord, Gamers, Mahouka, Konosuba...)

On the other side the majority of top 20 manga are crap(Soma and Neverland are the only good stuff there). Mainstream people are so boring...


Is this a real unironic comment
