I need to complain about this anime.
I noticed you guys aren't talking about it because it's weeabo trash. I know a lot of people didn't like SAO to begin with but I've enjoyed it so far. Until Alicization. Every episode just seems to drag on and on and on and on. The plot barely moves every episode. It took them like 10 episodes for them to move to any semblance of a plot. With the other seasons, the arcs were short and move quickly and there were usually two per season.
As for the characters, if you thought Kirito was boring and uninspired, Eugeo is even worse. As is his love affair Alice. All of them are bland and the show only focuses on these three characters. The bad guy is barely fleshed out, just enough to make you hate her. But they make her so fucking hot that it's kinda difficult to care that she's evil. The show also doesn't focus on any characters outside the game world. This time it's called Underworld. How original. Because their souls are stuck in this weird purgatory.
Asuna and company were in the first 3 episodes and that's about it. In the 19 episodes since, she's appeared a whopping two times. Which is bullshit because she's my favorite character.
To make an accurate comparison, watching Alicization is like watching Domestic Girlfriend. A TRAINWRECK. Except without the laughs or the spice.
PLEASE SAVE ME AND RECOMMEND ME SOMETHING GOOD.
Recently, I liked Zombie Land Saga and Familia Myth: Is it wrong to pick up girls in a dungeon?
From the last few seasons only ...
Hinamatsuri. Psychic death battle girls.
Grand Blue. The typical life of a college freshman.
Made In Abyss. One of the most emotional anime ever made.
