I am disappointed by these designs, I wanted Akira Ishida manga's designs.
Spoiler for designs:

It's no surprise; there was no way they'd use Akira Ishida's manga design, given that it is just one of many manga adaptations of the title. Still, it's not like the characters look bad, in fact I kinda like them.

I also like the design. It gives off a classic rpg feel on it which I like.

I like the designs, pretty good, DQ in particular.
Altho maybe help just a tad if the hero was a little gruff looking.
Sorry to say but not enough Nathan Drake heroes in anime for my liking

Well I never expected them to truly emulate toi8's style anyway, but the anime designs are still good. The head shots definitely made me think "Ah, it's toi8" though!

I am so glad I'm not the only person thinking that, I thought I was just being silly/was looking at the two series within a few days of each other so of course I would see similarities.

And of course now I want crossover fanart of this.....

I'm very disappointed at the designs.

Not at all pleasing to look at.

I don't really see any resemblance to Adachi's SAO designs, nor much resemblance to Kirito or Asuna. But ignoring any similarities that may or may not exist, I think it looks alright.

They have a familiar look to the novels designs but more anime-like. No problems there.

I'd say the resemblance is there and cause it's there people will find problems with it.
I don't have any real problems with but I will say it's not exactly what I was hoping for.
It's not that I don't like the SAO art style, I just think it's not suited to certain settings/series.
MMY style however does work, at least for now, so it's all good.

So we replace the Hero with Kirito and put the Hero into SAO?

I'm fine with the character designs. Not exactly what I was expecting, but Maou and Yuusha still look good enough for me.

The designs are okay, nothing stellar but I guess that was the point?
