so, my first impressions of this after watching the first ep is that it's a less interesting sword art online. didn't continue past ep 1 so if this does get better let me know and i'll take another look

I'm enjoying it so far. I don't really like how it's being compared to SAO since this is so much more faithful to what an MMO really is, but I guess it's obvious why those comparisons are being made. Also after reading this Q&A from the creator, I can't help but love it. xD

I like this series!

Unlike Sword Art Online it reminds me of the .Hack// series

Don t compare SAO with this one. This is not a 'Finding Nemo' anime like SAO

decided to give this another shot, and I am definitely enjoying it now. mean reason the first ep turned me off was it felt rushed because there wasn't really any explanation or much backstory, just "we're stuck in an MMO and...that's it".

Still doesn't seem to be an actual overall plot but I guess this series is about the journey rather than the ending. I also really like how much more this series actually takes into account actual MMO mechanics and themes than other series that use the same setting. will keep watching

Ehhhhh, if cat man waited 14 secs to attack, does that mean the root lasts for 15 seconds? :l That means the Enchanter can just perma-root someone with that one skill. That is retardedly OP. Maybe if the root lasts like 3 secs but the thorns stay on for the extra damage then it would make sense, but you can't have a CC last that long in a video game. Jesus.

so, took a break from this series but now caught up. this really went in an unexpected direction, wasn't expecting economics and politics to play such a large part in it. This is one of the series that actually follows MMO mechanics pretty faithfully for the most part

Definitely enjoying this series, glad it's going to last 25 eps, and hope it comes to a good conclusion at the end

Spoiler :
I found it funny when Shiroe invited all of the top guilds just so he can be there and on top of that he made them all give him 5m so he can own the main bank and they thought it was a huge quest :awesome: .

I'm actually surprised of this anime and how it will end is just a huge mystery.

i know a war is coming, it can't be avoided.
SAO can't be compared with this anime anymore after seeing so much distictions, so if people are still comparing then they're just blindly watching this show.

heh, apparently everyone wearing glasses in this series has a dark side to them. loved how crusty was poking fun at the princess the whole time

I hope akatsuki's relationship with shiro goes somewhere, he should be smart enough to notice after a while

This anime has been pleasantly surprising me. I like that instead of everyone being so concerned with how to get out of the game, they all try to make it a more livable world instead. Also I think the characters are all pretty cool; their personalities are all a little quirky and there is no one who I absolutely can't stand up to this point.

well, they certainly had an interesting explanation for HP and MP in this world as well as respawning. I definitely like how they tie in the story elements with gameplay mechanics. I wonder how memory loss during death will factor in the story since up until now it hasn't been a noticeable issue
