I for one would not have enjoyed this episode nearly as much had they skipped from episode 1 to 8. The part when Kirito and Asuna discuss how a lot of players are now regarding SAO as something akin...

Heartseed is probably manipulating things to a certain degree, but I don't think we can say he's singling out the cast's top desires. Tachi is an extreme example of a white knight, helping people is...

I've always thought of Claymore as the poor-man's Berserk. Pretty much anything Claymore does, Berserk does better, at least from a storytelling perspective. Looking through the thread, it seems...

You're right, I phrased that part badly. I do have arguments for my opinion, but it is just my opinion.

Yes, that's precisely what my issue is about. The knee jerk counterargument is "this stuff isn't unusually because it's TV", but that's precisely my point. By acknowledging that "it's TV", suspension...

"Hardcore" might have been the wrong word to use. However I do expect the primary target audience of this game are gamers and the majority of that subgroup are guys.

I too have to echo the complaints about the disproportional focus on girls over guys.

A lot of people are criticizing this aspect as "wish-fulfillment" and "pandering". As a whole, I'm of the...

Going to have to go with Berserk on this one. It's compelling cast of characters, tight pacing, interesting setting, epic scale, well thought-out plot and even it's controversial ending help produce...

I'm also fine with Kirito. If anything, I find it kind of tragic that he's only a "Marty Stu" within the confines of Aincrad; I'm sure he's far from perfect in real life. In fact, his "Marty...

The ghost was a head-scratcher, I'd like to think that the show is trying to foreshadow that the game isn't completely logical like Kirito thinks and that we should expect some big surprise in the...

It is relevant in the sense that Kirito hid his level from the Black Cats, which may or may not have been the ultimate cause for the guild wipe. That in itself is pretty significant.

I haven't read the LN, nor do I feel it's necessary to use it as a means to analyze the anime.

I don't think the show has this problem at all, in fact I'd argue that the issue is that it does the exact opposite.
