Sword Art Online

Could that be a Toonami show?

Someone beat you to the topic

 

From what I've seen, I'd have to say no...

He's right. SAO is comparable to a guy in drag. Looks inviting, but is really an awful sight to see.

I see. From what I'm seeing, the anime has made some people mad, but I don't mind. Maybe it's not ready for Toonami, but I'd hope we'd get it before FUNimation channel does (I'm assuming FUNi will get it given their relationship with Aniplex).

The idea behind Sword Art just seems like a Dot hack ripoff. At least the sister series to Sword Art, Accel World, had a more original idea and dealt with an interesting concept, more so with the abuse of Burst Linkage then the video game.

I've only seen the trailer for it and it looks pretty epic.

 

It can't be THAT bad, can it?

No, Aniplex announced at NYCC that they'll be releasing it (along with Magi and Blast of Tempest) themselves in the US.

One of the main reasons why this show is considered so bad by some users

Is because it barely sticks to its whole concept of "deadly videogaming," and what not.

The first and second episode heavily emphasize the videogaming aspect of the series, but the rest...

It emphasizes more so on Kirito's relationship with the girls and what not.

If it was, I wouldn't watch.  I liked the first couple episodes, but it turned bad fast.

It's a good series if you like Mary Sues and Gary Stus with no personality whatsoever.

The only good character in the show barely gets shown at all.
