I love this anime but my boyfriend pointed out last night that he felt the male to female ratio is off.
Not like a Harem but like other than Kirito, there aren't a lot of recurring male characters.

I don't get why people don't like this. I haven't finished it myself, but my husband watched it and it looked pretty good to me.

Most of them are just following the hate train, others have their own likes which don't really fit with the "flow" and how the thing changed through the seasons

The first Arc was fantastic :) the 2nd one was quite OK. I just didn't like how they concentrate on other girl charakters instead of focusing on asuna x kirito.

I got really hooked up on first season. The second one was kinda nah to me, it was somewhat good but I just don't like how they moved so far from original idea.

I was getting 605 and 567, but anyway.
Somebody had made the Sword Art Online entry instead of selecting Sword Art Online (TV), but I now correctly aliased the former to the latter.
Moreover searching for Sword Art Online on its own will also show videos with Sword Art Online II (TV), Sword Art Online Hollow Fragment, and Sword Art Online Infinity Moment.
By the way, Sword Art Online II (TV) was under the unconfirmed name Sword Art Online 2, I just now confirmed that as well. With the new naming, searching for Sword Art Online (TV) will bring up Sword Art Online II (TV) as well, but Hollow Fragment and Infinity Moment still only show up with Sword Art Online on its own.

There are still a lot of unconfirmed titles to deal with actually. I generally only clean up select titles when prompted by request, but I guess I'll have to actually clean up the unconfirmed mess.

Awesome Series but Part II was nowhere near as good... Couldn't even finish part II but the first series was awesome!

Then go finish it, do it so you can watch the second half.

is the second half of season 2 any good? I watched through the part where they caught the murderers killing people in real life and then dropped it. Kirito remains one of the main characters that I dislike the most in just about any anime series. I end up rooting for the guys he's fighting against even though I know they won't win. He makes too many illogical decisions but always ends up winning because the plot demands it. hell, he comes back from the dead when thousands of other people died simply because...feelings? rant over

Episodes 15-17 are complete filler, which is not a criticism in itself, but nothing very important happens in these. You may enjoy it, only you can decide.

As for episodes 18-24... if you've watched all of SAO I and SAO II up to this point, then I would definitely recommend just finishing the series. These episodes... I believe the less said about them, the better. I thought they were very good and that it wouldn't be worth it to spoil anything about them to any potential viewers. This is the sort of thing where you're better just not knowing anything going in to them. But I will say two things:

I really like Sword Art Online. And I even like Kirito but he's a terrible character for all the reasons you mentioned and more. There's something about that which I find endearing, it's hard to explain. Kirito shows up in every episode in the series, but he's practically a secondary character in this final arc, so if you're sick of him or at least his Gary Stu-like perfection, you're in for a treat!

Also, the casual misogyny of both SAO I and SAO II always felt unnervingly creepy to me. The rape scenes didn't flow out of the plot and felt tacked on simply to titillate viewers. (Don't believe me? Look at how well those scenes are animated! It's like you're there!) Thankfully, there's no more of that to be found here, either.

If you're a fan of SAO, just watch it. It's one of the better conclusions to any series I've watched in a long time.

That post was a lot longer than it needed to be and it's sad that no one has posted anything on this whole subforum in the 2 weeks since then.
