Welcome, weebs, to Animated Observations
In an event that surprised many of those around him, and also left him wondering what he had been thinking, a man recently discovered that Sword Art Online, one of the most popular anime series to come out in the 2010’s, is actually not as great as many people claim it to be.
Devin Williams, 18, was hanging out with his friends in his two bedroom apartment on a Friday night. Williams walked into the living room where his roommate happened to be watching Sword Art Online. “I remember he said that he said ‘hey, you guys should come to watch this show with me,'” Williams said about the experience, “and so we watched it, and man, it was awful.”
Before the event, Williams had always had the impression that SAO was a really good show because everyone would talk about it all the time. “All of the people I know would tell me that it’s god’s gift to earth, but it’s just not true at all.”
When asked to comment on Williams’ revelation, many in his own family disagreed. “Are you kidding me,” his mother said, “Sword Art Online is the greatest show ever. I really like that part with Asuna trapped in a cage. It really adds to the drama of it all…”
“I just don’t know what to do,” Williams said, “Everywhere I go its people talking about the Sword Art Online. I just wish they would actually watch it to see how awful it is.”
Ok, so in case you guys did not see the tags or category for this post, it is a satire piece. I don’t actually think SAO is that bad, I just thought it would be a fun topic for satire article. But, since SAO is a show that I don’t normally talk about on The Aniwriter, I am curious: How do you all feel about the series? Let me know in the comments below.
