    Let's take Chihaya for example, just because you and the 3-4 other major 'other anime' posters love it, does not make it a masterpiece. The 'other anime' crowd is a microcosm of the entire anime-consuming world. Many people will not enjoy it due to the unique, dull/boring(Karuta battles/matches) qualities that anime possesses.

    That should not take away from your enjoyment of Chihaya, or SAO(that many a fan will not care or value them in the same regard you do), nor require you to defend them.

    At the end of the day, as you love saying, all you, I, or anyone can say is 'opinion,' not fact.

    It's not a defense, that enough people obviously think SAO is quality is a fact based on how it's doing sales wise, whether or not their opinion is correct is another matter entirely.

    I don't see what Chihayafuru has to do with any of this, but whatever. I don't really care if Chihayafuru is indeed a masterpiece or not, the only thing that matters to me is whether or not I can enjoy the series, and I enjoyed the hell out of Chihayafuru.

    Many people will not enjoy it due to the unique, dull/boring(Karuta battles/matches) qualities that anime possesses.
    There loss really, you would think people, especially anime fans, would learn by now to never judge a book by it's cover. Anime has a habit of taking a premise that seems dull and boring and turning it into something great, take K-ON! for instance. Who ever would have thought five girls sitting around eating cake and drinking tea could be entertaining?

    That should not take away from your enjoyment of Chihaya, or SAO(that many a fan will not care or value them in the same regard you do), nor require you to defend them.
    It doesn't take away from my enjoyment of either series, and as I said I wasn't defending SAO, I was simply pointing out the fact that regardless of whether or not they're right, enough people like SAO enough to see it having great sales.

    At the end of the day, as you love saying, all you, I, or anyone can say is 'opinion,' not fact.
    That a lot of people seem to think SAO is quality is a fact though, because, once again, the sales back that up.

    K-On! IS indeed entertaining. No one is saying bad animu aren't entertaining, though, if only at times.

    The power of the purse argument? That's rich, I mean poor. Lots of folk with bad taste in animu have nice expendable incomes, and use that income to buy said animu.

    Mob mentality(via work of mouth and copious hyping) leads to more folk of unfortunate taste buying said animu. As you can see, a bunch of folk with poorly placed taste and disposable income buying mediocre animu does not support the argument that high sales speak for quality. When the curtain falls they still have bad taste.


    All this being said, I watch SAO, and enjoy parts of it, but I still think it's mediocre.

    Well you kind of did. You said SAO's sales meant/support it was quality stuffs. But let's take any further talk of sales and quality to VM.

    I'm going to assume Durian just blocked everything that Jolt said to get his "point" across... Seriously, if you don't like SAO why the hell are you in the discussion?

    NEW TOPIC!

    Now that Kirito has passed The World Tree I really hope that the Cait Sith and the Slyphs are going to go raid again to have Sugu and Recon join him.
    I'm back I guess.

    MAL SAO discussion threads are just, wow.
    And that's why I only read the first page, which is usually filled with positive comments, since the fans usually post first before any arguments start to surface :3

    Yey gogogo Kirito-kun~
    dat little duel between Kirito and sugu <3

    As much as I don't care about Asuna, Oberon was still a freak to her and he deserved that pain.

    It was still kind of weird seeing the main character kill the villain with that much brutality. It's obvious how much of a slime ball he is and how much he deserved it, but heroes are supposed to be above doing things like that. And like it or not, Kirito's the hero character in this story.

    It's like seeing Batman use a gun. It's like "Yeah! That jerk deserved it!" but at the same time it's a little unsettling and feels wrong.

    I think the second half was better than the first, the lack of jumping around randomly really helped.

    And it's finally over. Regardless of what other people thought, I thought it was pretty good. I wouldn't mind another season someday. Also, it took me a few seconds to realize the blue haired girl was Asuna...

    Wait... I'm confused.

    Are we starting ANOTHER season of Aincrad or was the episode just the end of ALfheim Online and next one is going to be Gun Gale?
    I'm back I guess.
