I completely understand where you're coming from, but I guess I'm one of those people who loved the show despite its flaws. Honestly, it did take me a couple episodes to start fully enjoying it, but once I did, I was very much invested. I enjoyed the chemistry between Zero Two and Hiro, despite knowing that both would end up "dying" by the end. I also really enjoyed the relationship between Mitsuru and Kokoro. It did kinda come out of nowhere, but the appeal was too much for me to resist. The last episode made me especially happy for them, their first child, Ai, was so cute.

The only letdowns for me were the appearance of VIRM, because that did feel extremely sudden and honestly made the last couple episodes confusing, and the "Ichigo" moment that happened after Zero Two went psycho on most of squad 13. VIRM's appearance reminded me so much of the end of Kill la Kill, and how much the ending of that was just completely random and out of place. And well, Ichigo's outburst onto Hiro just felt extremely forced by the writers to try to give her some more "character development", which certainly was not needed for her.

For me, I enjoyed FranXX so much but I do hope they just leave it at that, and don't try to make a second season where VIRM makes a reappearance. They've used all possible and decent storylines, they don't need to magically make more to dig for more money. I can understand the points you made though because it's all true, I was just a sucker for the story I suppose haha.

I see you didn't enjoy FranXX very much. Why's that?

I did a little research and she will be in the Alicization arc, but she won't be a main character like she was in GGO. I think she'll be more of a recurring supporting character like in the Mother's Rosario arc with Yuuki.

I did quite enjoy the anime, I agree that it's a refreshing addition to the SAO series, however, there were a few things I had issues with. Most notably was the talking SMG (UZI), P-chan. I didn't understand why that concept had to be added and it really took away from the anime for me. I would have rather LLENN just figured out everything P-chan told her herself - it would have allowed for better flow.

I did find it amusing that both GGO's ended without using guns. In the original, Kirito used his lightsaber, and in the alternative, LLENN practically turned into a cannibal and bite through Pito's neck. But comparing both GGO's, I think I'm more keen towards the original because of both Sinon (best girl imo) and the fact that story was more concrete. The idea that Pito wanted to kill herself if she lost to experience the thrill of SAO was too overboard for me.

I gave it a solid 6/10.

What did you think of SAO Alternative?

Definitely, Midari's personality and actions were extremely overboard and I felt they didn't exactly suit the 'theme' of the anime - even her way of gambling was too extreme.

I also didn't really like Ryouta that much. He was an extremely pointless character to me and was only really there to help Yumeko with her gambling. If he wasn't in the anime, I don't think the series would have changed that much, besides the last episode.

I absolutely loved watching it, I ended up binging the entire series while trying to revise for my last exam hehe. But I do agree with the last episode, it would definitely been better if it was fleshed out into two. It didn't fit the pace of the rest of the series.

I'm happy about getting a second season, I just hope it's done as well as the first. And I want to see more Mary. She was a b*tch at first, but I liked her character development over time.

Hey, I watched Kakegurui during the maintenance of MAL and I was wondering what you thought of it :)

I hope you enjoy it. If you find the anime isn't as good as you had hoped, I would definitely recommend playing the games.
isuzusan May 16, 10:08 AM
Danganronpa is pretty much that. The students are enrolled in a famous academy because of special skills they each have, but they end up trapped in there and the only way out is to kill off each other. When one student dies, they have a trial to figure out who the murderer was. If they are found, they are executed, if not then they are free to kill again. The first season was alright and pretty accurate to the game. The latter seasons weren't as good but I don't know how close they were to the games, they were just pretty boring.
isuzusan May 14, 10:34 AM
I get that. I've played Persona 4 and Danganronpa (Trigger Happy Havoc only), and the anime adaptations didn't show them for how fun they truly are. Danganronpa did it better than Persona 4, but still had a lot of room for improvement.

In terms of the anime itself, I don't know how long the actual phantom thieves scenes usually are in game standards (especially the fights) but I'm not enjoying the pacing as much. The last episode with Yusuke has been the best one so far, but they felt too fast for me. I understand they are trying to fit nearly 100 hours worth of the game in 24 episodes, but still. I'd rather they slow it down and split it up over a couple seasons. They might still do, I don't know, but that's my hope.
