Pretty much. I expect the main two fights to be Saitama vs. Boros & Jonathan vs. Dio (either the 1st or 2nd time).

The final fight where Mugen & Jin teamed up was rather cool, but I can't see it winning.

I wanna say that we started the year with the end of the Kakuzu/Hidan arc, but I might be wrong.

Yeah I'm talking about the dub of the original OP as the good one.
The awful one is the song from the game that they now use for the anime and somehow has a fucking fanbase.

Essentially.
That was the penultimate episode of the first season.
Before that she got handled by tentacles.
She's supposed to be strong!

And then they try to redeem him further in the Season 2 finale.

The final arc in SAO2 was the closest to being good, along with that one "let's go find that legendary sword" arc where it was just them flat-out playing the game with no serious stakes.

Oh it will happen
And it will be a looooooooong trainwreck
The next arc that follows ran for 10 books.
The first arc in SAO took two books, as did the fairy arc, and the Death Gun arc.

Then again, if they have more material, the pacing might not be sluggish.

why not, it's a good series with a large fan base set in an rpg that allows for a cheap easish to make run of games.

it just got big enough where it's cool to hate on it and plenty of people do.

you can turn pretty much anything into the worst thing ever if you get enough people motivated to nit pick every little detail often blowing up little flaws into huge things that barely represent the original show at all :P

I'd say that SAO is a better series than jojo parts 1/2.

what... jojo parts 1/2 are fun enough but really the writing is not very good at all. especially part 1 which was about as original and exciting as making fun of SAO at this point :P

I also like to swim against the flow. if I like a show I like it doesn't matter how much others hate it, and if i dislike a show I dislike it doesn't matter how many others like it.

yeah because in a classroom full of people that were trapped in a game for a long period time it would be really hard for them to accept that there could be someone else remote viewing their class from somewhere else in the world *shrugs*

There's a difference between saying you like something and saying it's well written or well done. You can say the former about SAO, but most definitely not the latter.

Super AIDS is where I lost it. I literally sat there laughing for like 5 straight minutes. Like, they couldn't have given her lymphoma or something?

I didn't mean that post in a how could something this bad, be this popular way.

The only games based on manga/anime that come close to yearly games are Dragon Ball, Naruto, and One Piece (at least these are the ones that jump out to me). And those are pretty much the biggest. It's just very surprising/impressive to me that a light novel series gets games about the same frequency of some of the biggest properties from jump. I guess it being cheap to make has a point though/me not knowing how big of a deal the series is.

I like sword art online and in general feel it is decently well done. it has flaws sure, but the story overall is engaging and interesting which quite frankly is the most important part to any story to me.

quite frankly most things that are technically well written or are well told stories bore me to death. I'd much rather have a story with flaws that entertains me then a story that is technically flawless that bores me to death. and in general would consider the flawed story to be better written.

heck anything that gets nominated for a hollywood award I know instantly to not bother watching it if it isn't animated as it will just bore me into sleeping.

fair enough. I imagine part of the reason is it's an rpg setting, and thus unlike the other series which are combat setting it's much easier to enter the market via a different genre than those IPs typically get games for.

I like the second jojo better than I like kirito... but in general I found SAO more entertaining than the second part of Jojo.

keep in mind, I am not saying jojo's second part is bad (the first part is debatable lol) it greatly improved on the first part and made me interested in continuing jojo in general. but quite frankly I just really enjoyed SAO.
