At first I thought I would never watch this anime because of the little fat B*** @$$ looking main character. BUT I LOVED SWORD ART ONLINE, so I figured I'd give it a shot.
The story was amazing. I felt like there was a lot of plot twists and little arcs that were somewhat unpredictable. Some of it was, but even when it was, I was still entertained.
All of the characters had deep relationships with each other that really showed a lot of emotion. There was a lot of trust and betrayal and I was very satisfied with pretty much all of the characters.
Overall I'd recommend to over-look the fat stupid looking main character and give this show a shot.
