    I skimmed some of the reviews on MyAnimeList and found that seemingly many people had issues with that part, too. Some also viewed the series as three arcs, with the second being when Asuna and Kirito married and temporarily left the front lines; they had issues with that segment as well.

    I initially wondered if I should stop where Kirito awakens, and not go any farther. The idea of entering a new MMORPG and having Kirito start from scratch was pretty unappealing. Also, having everyone go fairy-style was a bit of a shock, particularly since I wasn't expecting it. But I actually ened up really enjoying that part of the series, too.

    Part of what made that aspect enjoyable was Sugu. Her entire love conflict was pretty clear from the start and there were no surprises there, but it was still beautiful (if somewhat heart-wrenching) to see it play out. I really liked her character, though.

    What I found a bit jarring (aside from suddenly being thrust into fairy land) was the sexuality within the series. I felt that much of SAO was pretty tame as far as anime series go. Sure, there was one scene where Kirito accidentally performed a boob grab on Asuna, but that was it. There was little to no cleavage, no characters with oversized busts, fairly few chest shots. Then came the ALfheim Online segment, and it was cleavage galore. Sugu was the biggest offender (sadly), but the sequences with Asuna were just weird. The sexual abuse was disturbing enough, but I had to roll my eyes at the purple tentacle monster avatars that caught her when she was trying to escape. I mean, seriously? Keep those types of things in hentai films. The sexuality (fanservice, if you could even call it that) really exploded during this segment, but it just felt so out of place given the way that the first half of the series had gone.

    But I think what I liked the most about SAO was the way that they really made it clear that everything was taking place in a game. I remember watching .hack//Sign a few years ago, and I had high hopes for it. Unfortunately, despite stating that it was taking place in an MMORPG, it quickly began to feel like a standard fantasy-based anime series. SAO kept the game feeling strong. I've sworn off of MMORPGs long ago, but this rekindled some of those feelings of fun and excitement that I had while playing them in the past.

    I've heard that Accel World is somewhat similar to SAO, at least as far as the virtual reality and the technology behind it. Have you watched that one already? I'll probably watch it next. I'm not sure if having SAO fresh in my mind will diminish my enjoyment of it, though.

    Finished Sword Art Online. It has been a long time since an anime series made me feel so engaged, and so sorry to see it end. That was beautiful.

    Amusing that you mentioned in the reorganization thread that the forum is for anime.

    I haven't posted in an anime thread in ages. I keep coming back to this place because it's exceptionally well moderated and poo-flinging is kept to a minimum. The only other forum I know of that's as well-moderated is xda-developers, which has a very specific practical mission (smartphone hacking) so it's not useful for me to just bullshit about whatever.

    I know I'm probably part of the problem but whatever.

    I enjoyed reading your posts on the Aku no Hana thread, I thought you were very reasonable in regards to both sides of the issue.

    Since I figure you might not have read through all the Aku no Hana thread, there's an interview with director and mangaka

    Figured it would interest you because in it the director says the he first declined the offer to make a Aku no Hana anime because he thought live action better suited the manga.
