Yo,

You can call me Aoi, it's what people tend to call me online these days, it's a feminine given name in Japan, but I started using it when I called myself Aoi Sekai a long time ago because I thought blue world sounded cool(I think I picked it up from a jrock song or something) and now i've sort of got used to being called that name.

I started getting in to Anime in my first college years, when I was around 17. After completing my assignments I would start browsing the internet, and one day while on youtube I stumbled accross Naruto videos and from there I got in to Shounen series.

I wouldn't really say I have a real preference to what I watch, I tend to be pretty open. However my favourites tend to have romance or be dark series like say Claymore for example.

As for my Anime list, as it goes with most of them, my ratings are based on what I was feeling right after I watched it, honestly one series I rated 4 stars, might have been much better than another series I rated 4 stars, I didn't really put any thought in to it. I feel like if I did I would probably bring the ratings down, because the plot might have been clichéd as heck, yet for some reason at the time I really enjoyed it. Also my taste has changed slightly over the years so things I rated low I might enjoy more now and visa versa.

I have a pretty good memory, so I tend to remember the Anime I've seen and the games I've played, so I'm always up for talking about older stuff. If it's a jrpg or a visual novel, I've likely tried it or at least heard of it and there is quite a few series I have not marked but have tried, and if by chance I have not even heard of it, then I am always up for trying it out!

I'm a fan of Gundam. My favourite Gundam series is probably Turn A Gundam, which many people find strange but Gundam Wing and 00 are not far behind. UC Gundam is great and all but honestly I feel like Zeta Gundam really over did the dramatic stuff and after that ZZ Gundam felt like it was leaning more towards comedy to me, though I did not get too far in to that series.

My favourite two Anime series of this year so far is Attack on Titan and Oreimo.

My Anime film is Mononoke Hime.

Favourite Manga is Nausicaa.

I'm a fan of Japanese console Role Playing Games, Persona 3 being one of my favourites. I also like the Monster Hunter series and playing MMORPGS. At the moment though I've been playing tonnes of Dota2.

Because why not?

...exaggerated how, exactly? I have reasons behind all my ratings. Just because you don't agree with them doesn't make them exaggerated.

Yeah, I see your point on the combat system. Still wish there some ranged weapons though. I'd be pretty sad if I was playing it.

Well, sounds like you aren't open to discussion on this topic. You still haven't given me any examples of Kirito's growth as a character, though I appreciate you reminding me of some of the finer details of the SAO combat system. It still doesn't have the charm that other MMO battles systems have, but one of the good things about adaptions is that things appeal to me more visually, so I'm sure I'll like the combat more after seeing it animated. 

Errr... I appreciate your thoughts, even if you insulted my rating system and disregarded my opinions just because I don't agree with you about some cartoons. Just for future reference, for me a 2.5/5 is average. I know by your scale I'm giving things ridiculously low ratings, but it works for me since it's is the only logical way to represent an average score on a 5 point scale.

Also, on your bio you said you aren't a fan of VNs. Honestly, I'm not either... at all, but I enjoyed Saya no Uta quite a bit. Have you read it? It's in the horror/romance genre, and it's also quite short. There are 3 routes and completing all 3 shouldn't take more than 3-6 hours, iirc. It's also easy to find fully translated. Check it out if you want something to burn some time and creep you out.

I said in my comment that it was on the lower end of mediocre. Nothing amazing, but not without merit. The LN, on the other hand, I really couldn't stand, which is why I don't have high expectations for the show. I read the first volume a while ago and could hardly get through it. It seemed like the author couldn't write more than a few sentences without infodumping. It supposedly improves from there, but the concept didn't interest me enough to continue it anyway. An MMO setting without ranged weapons, magic, buffs, debuffs, or a job/class system doesn't seem very interesting to me. Might as well watch some .Hack or Druga instead. In terms of a story, I actually prefer engaging, well-developed, and amusing characters over a well-written plot. That's another gripe I have with SAO. Kirito is seemingly 'perfect' which consequently makes him bland, as he has little room for improvement or development as a character. I'm no fan of Accel world, but at least Haru grows through his adventure.

Why in the world would I purposely want a show to fail? Why especially would I want it to fail because it's popular? Doesn't make any sense to me. I love watching entertaining shows, even if they're not particularly well-written. Maybe SAO will surprise me and end up one of my favorites for the season. I doubt it, but it's still possible.

Next time, instead of telling me I'm mistaken, why don't you tell me why I'm mistaken? Saying I'm flat out wrong won't lead to any sort of engaging dialogue. Tell me what parts you think were well written, why you think the MMO setting is redeeming, or what developments Kirito undergoes that makes him more interesting as a character.
