He is what should be called "badass" instead of Kirito. He showed what it's like to be in strategy games and THIS IS, KIDS, HOW YOU DO FIGHT IN GAMES. You USE YOUR HEAD not DASH STRAIGHT TO THE ENEMY WITHOUT PUTTING YOUR BRAIN INTO IT. He is not just introduced as "badass" just because. He was introduced as "intelligent, knows his shit" AND THAT'S HOW WE KNOW HE'S GOING TO BE BADASS.
Has a personality befitting a mage. High intelligence character and it shows. He's cautious and circumspect, a consumate chess player, always looking 30 seconds into the future at least. He's likeable but reserved and a bit of a loner. The main growth arc for this character is learning to step up and take responsibility and fight for those too weak to fight for themselves. He is one who comes to the leadership role only with great reluctance. He deplores injustice but is not impulsive. He prefers to outsmart his enemies instead of resorting to brute force or powerful spellcasting alone. He's also oblivious to his own charms and fails to notice the growing affections of his bodyguard ninja, Akatsuki, or his magical protege Minori, who admires and wants to emulate him and starts falling in love with him. He's calm, cool, and collected and also partially serves as narrator for the series, explaining MMORPG game mechanics for viewers who may be unfamiliar with game mechanics.
I like this character but it seems that a lot of people hate it. Why is that? Do people really hate smart, calm and analytical characters? Are people really into idiots, clueless and pevrets who run all the day with nosebleed. Do people really like agitated characters who rely only on famele lead, wimps who can't even accept reality and use the phrases "Impossible" or "That can't be true!" in nearly every sentence?
He is very kind and cool in these stories. but sometimes he reveals his evilness for his friends.
I like this character.
Sigh... Demon in glasses gotta love the demon in glasses
