I re watched Bokurano: Ours and I still maintain that it is the best anime ever.
Yeah, SAO was just "there" for me, I didn't think it was the worst thing ever, but the only thing I honestly remember from it is the soundtrack and art which I think was too good for its own good, but whatever. Tbh I found The Asterisk War to be much worse before Digibro made his tangent videos on it. I think it aired alongside the similar-but-more-superior Chivalry of a Failed Knight which is why it's kinda blended in with other shows of its kind.My anime hot take is that it actually takes a while for SAO to be garbage. Some arcs like the first one and Alicization and that one with King Arthur I don't remember but also don't hate so I'll assume was 'just okay' are decent or even good, but the anime's relentless determination to constantly grow Kirito's harem by every single new female character that gets introduced every time even if it doesn't make sense (and it thinking that it's cute 5 seasons in when the girls 'fight' over him) is what drags it into the depths of unbearable.
Internet Bloodsports.I've read the OP of the "TL;DR" Dick simping/PPP thread (the one that has 7000+ replies in just over 3 days!!). Overall it was a good write up of the events... my main complaint, though, is that I still don't know what IBS means, aside from that it seems to cause irritability, gas, and explosive diarrhea.
I believe it is a universal rule that hatedoms are always dumber and more autistic than fandoms. Even when something is absolute shit, people who actually like it, however bad their taste, are doing something they enjoy. Hatedoms don't even like something and are still obsessed by it which is pure autism.That said, as much as SAO isn't good, every pseudo-intellectual trying to force it as the next Hitler/Stalin/4kids/[insert pariah here] levels of bad (it already is, and unlike Twilight, the hatedom is far worse than the dregs who genuinely like it) is somehow worse than any of SAO's lowest points of quality.
I'd like to think there's an * qualifying that with 'the vocal ones', but well...there's insufficient evidence of that, considering that while most VAs haven't jumped onto the kickvic train, we're still not seeing Vic get new roles in anime spheres, which indicates they're just being complacent and quiet about it. Which is still smarter than the mouthy ones.I like dub VAs too.
A shame that most of them are jackasses.
