A total package this time around, Sword Art Online serves to disgust with more conventional romance spittle, alongside its favorite of invincible protagonist – however most hilarious is how idiotically it’s all presented.
Episode one, Sword Art Online went on to emphasize and highlight fighting and death – a mass group of individuals were entrapped within an RPG game, now left to struggle and strive for their lives. That aspect went extensively promoted within the spectacle to the final second – yet foolish indeed it seems to have been for one to think that a series which explicitly spotlights the fact it is based on an RPG game, a genre of action and adventure, would focus on either action, or adventure.
By now, it’s already clear that this time slot wasting trash of a series is following the route of sewage, and heading downward – although this level of degeneration is just revolutionary in terms of terrible. A hefty segment of this episode consists of no more than the two protagonist characters rubbing their bodies against one another – confirming that if any sort of game, the world of Sword Art Online is some kind of massively multiplayer eroge. Of course however, no category plays impact on the sheer horrid nature of this series.
Nothing is being accomplished – the series gave itself one objective in the first episode, 10 more later, taking us to this 11th debacle, and the two leading protagonists now spend their days touching each other within this digital universe. It’s not even clear how the series arrived at this point – none of the episodes correlate, no coherent purpose is present, and everything truly is indeed as sudden and absent of meaning as it seems. Sword Art Online has nothing beyond what it provides at face value – and its face is truly grotesque and hideous.
When did these two characters get married? Who knows. This series introduces aspects, jumps forward, and carries on with other random and extraneous ordeals. Marriage holds no relevance to the central story whatsoever, assuming such a thing still exists in Sword Art Online – and in fact, this series seems to not even understand what it’s doing itself. The series went from placing its interests upon fighting for survival to return to reality, to a criminal band of murderers in a pixel world, and now to what is merely the glorification of virtual copulation.
After the protagonists touch one another for a solid while longer, they venture out into a forest till they just so happen to stumble upon a generically designed female character whom they abduct and brainwash – fooling her to believe that they’re her parents.
The series’ outright stupidity in composition has always shown quite well – yet there’s a line of dialogue which deserves to be recognized for its imbecilic qualities. A moment comes up in which the heroine asks rhetorically “what is a child doing in SAO?” – and with this, the series effectively reaches the point where it’s as clueless as an animal sniffing its own feces.
Who would have thought to see something as absurd as a child playing an RPG game?
For good measure, what follows is more menial nonsense, topped with a split-second of overpowered protagonist saving the day from evil – and with that, one now has an answer if ever asked as to whether they have any regrets, watching 11 episodes of Sword Art Online would be the response.
