Thoughts on Sword Art Online

To be completely honest, this post was due two years ago, but back then I never would've thought Sword Art Online would've turned into what it is today. Since it's become such a big thing, though, and I'm in the mood to do a bit of writing, I thought I'd share my two cents.

Summer 2014

I'm a bit late, but Tokyo ESP's first episode airs one week later than the rest, and I didn't want HorribleSubs' trashy 8-bit encode, so I was waiting on Kaylith's subs. I finally got it, though, and now that I've seen everything I've planned to, here are my initial thoughts on Summer 2014.

Spring 2014

Excuse the lateness, it took me a while to confirm whether or not a few shows were ending or not. From what I know, it looks like Captain Earth and Mahouka are still going on, so I'll tack those to the beginning of next season's end impressions. Anyways, here's my consensus on the anime of Spring 2014. Summer 2014 impressions to come soon.

Presumed-Watched Anime

Contrary to what one might think, this won't be reminiscent of a twelve-year-olds' 50-minute long YouTube video labelled "10 BEST ANIMES* OF ALL TIME". No, my dear friends, far from it. This is a comprehensive list constructed to include what might be called "classics", regardless of how recently they aired. It is truly a list of must-watch anime, a list of titles that one must have under his belt before he can truly say "I watch anime".

I think I make it pretty clear in the explanations, but I should probably point out here that I'm not explicitly stating nor am I implying that any of these anime are good.  Don't get me wrong, many of them are great, and a lot of my personal favourites are included in here, but the rest of them are essentially garbage that most just get over and done with so that they're on the same page as everyone else. I guess it's up to you to decide which ones those are.

Before you ask, or even look for recommendations, even from the /a/ wiki, you need to have ticked off every one of these series. If you don't like how one of these series sounds, then man the fuck up and watch it anyway. Also I think it would be a good idea to mention that this list is in no particular order, other than loosely alphabetical.

*You're asking to be lynched if you ever say "animes" as if it's correct
