So this idea came about while chatting with a fellow forumer about random shenanigans. Some how, we got onto the subject of Sword Art. And then this same forumer had the brilliant thought of (paraphrasing) "What would be Joe's reaction to this? It's a video game themed anime that has mixed reception of love and hate. Wonder what his $0.02 would be..."

And then he asked me to make a poll, as a way of petition, so we could eventually see that dream come into fruition. Might as well. Season 2 is around the corner.

 

If we do succeed in making Joe watch it, he should make a "Thoughts so far" video about every 3 or 5 episodes discussing his opinion of it... so far, and other things; like the gaming lingo and terminology, or how the games work and what plot holes they punch into it. And eventually make a joke review of Sword Art Online and Alfheim Online as if they were real video games.

And if he could, live stream his reactions on every episode.

 

With that said, if he shoots it down, we'll understand. To go from video game news and reviews and then to anime? Doin' too much.

And to top it off, anime obviously has its stigmas. Wouldn't want to harm Joe's image.

We can settle with him making only 1 video of his opinion of the series, or just a thread of him posting his impression and using gifs. to show his reactions if a video or live stream is too much.

 

Please, no spoilers.

Except this one:

I'd like him to watch Kill La Kill.

But I'm just doing Sword Art because it's popular (be it good or bad), it's fresh, and I really just want to see Joe's reaction to it. And it's about video games.

I think he might enjoy it. At least it would give him a perspective on online gaming that he may not have.

Next he'll be reviewing tv series and albums. Idk, Joe's all about the movies and games, but hey if he likes it and wants to review it then what can I say. At any rate though, I think it's weird to request Joe to review certain games, let alone a different genre of entertainment.

Then I think you should actually read the topic rather than just the title.

 

Sol does indeed say Joe should review it ... and vlog about ... and write about it ... and stream about it.

 

Here you go, i'll save you the effort of reading a whole 3 paragraphs to find it.

The problem is Sol, while the folk that watch Joe's stuff are generally all gamers .... not everyone is a fan of Anime.

 

Personally, I don't like it at all so I would find it a lot of wasted effort on Joe's part making vlogs or streams about something I have zero interest in.

 

So for me, it would have to be a no.

Last I checked, any footage of anime that's ongoing or even ended for several years gets taken down by their respective companies. Mostly the ones that deal with the music in the series, so reviewing them (or it in this case) is rather pointless. You can make an amv (short for 'anime music video') with a different song, but that makes the series in question lose any flavor. I reckon it is possible to get some sort of review rights for anime, but I doubt it's easy in any way. Japan's quite protective of their IP's as you might've noticed.

As for should he watch it - after having watched plenty of Joe's video and seen plenty of his reactions to, well practically anything, I'd say that no. He would most likely be bored by it. Then again, I am only speculating and the inner fanboy in me (of Sword Art) sort of hopes that he will watch it.

I think he brought up Sword Art Online because it's game based.

Joe should watch "Fading of the Cries".

I hope the next topic will be: "Should Angry Joe wear hotpants."

Considering SAO is on my "do not recommend" anime list, I'm gonna have to say no. That and I just get the feeling it might not be Joe's cup o' tea (though I could be wrong).
Speaking reviewing SAO like it's an actual game, here's something I thought I'd never get to use:

No, no he should not....

 

Fuck no.

 

My eyes buddy, my damn eyes.

 

What will be seen cannot be unseen even after the eyeballs have melted.

Well... There's this.

And as for WHY SAO, as I already said, it has extreme reception as either being regarded as utter garbage... or a master piece. We would find it interesting (and mildly entertaining) as to what Joe thinks of it. And it's game themed.

I was thinking we could do Dot.Hack, Log Horizon, or Accel World instead (or have a "would rather" option int the poll), but Commander Shepard used his face on me...

First: I still don't understand people and their obscure problem with SAO, but let's leave it at that as to not start a stupid flame war of sorts.

Second: I can kinda guess what Joe might think of the given anime. Not the best things as they're all heavily story-based.

.hack//sign, simply put one of the greatest animes of all time, rivaling the likes of FLCL, One Piece, and Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann.

Sword Art Online has nothing on .hack.  Period.
