Only the first 2 volumes were animated so I hardly get your point here. No the reason why it went to 25 episodes instead of 23 was because they added the insignificant stuff.

Real plan here:

24 ep that only shows actual Sword Art Online arc. More details, and the title would make more sense, everyone wins. And if they make another season name it the next god damn arc.

Only the first four volumes were animated plus some of the side stories. They did the exact same thing with Accel World.

The point is that they're never going to be able to fulfill your wish. Unless they do a ridiculous amount of episodes per volume, the anime is going to be missing plot points. That's not "rushing" that's just called writing a script.

This is usually why I don't care too much to read any of the novels or anything. The anime is good by itself without reading the novels. Sure, if I read them I MAY be disappointed, but there's no reason to trash an all around pretty decent anime because it doesn't follow exactly how the books go.

The anime is terrible though. If you read the LN it'll probably be at least decent.

That's not the only reason why the anime is terrible.

Only Fairy Dance was watchable. It cut out one of the best parts too.

What I usually hear is that makes it bad is the characters and the wasted plot/theme. Don't see much complaints about the art/style animation. Some mentioning that Yuki Kaijura's music doesn't go with the anime or she didn't put as much effort into it as she does into other anime.

I personally give the anime a 6.8 / 10. Might be a bit high for some people but my standards aren't exactly high to begin with. At least I enjoyed the ride.

Main character that has next to no flaws
Love aspect is incredibly rushed/forced, especially in the case of the side-characters
Plot holes such as no one noticing anything fishy about some dude that's practically capped all his stats at the release of an MMO, people trying to blackmail money in town when other players cannot be hurt, logically stupid plot points such as sleep-PK.
Lack of setting exposition, and due to the lack of there are plot points that are pulled out of the ass just because it's vague
Contributing to a flawless main character, other characters pitifully die in one or two hits without a fight, or are extraordinarily bad at the game/makes bad decisions and weak beyond belief

Off the top of my head. I'm sure half of it is solved with the LN.

Wasted setting potential is probably the biggest disappointment. Good idea but...executed so poorly, and so little is done with it.

Mine doesn't load either, but Youtube's buffering quality has been absolute crap for lots of people these last two months. In any case, glad to see it's being dubbed!

I don't even know why I bother watching sample of dubs and hope they're good. It's like the chances of picking up your soul mate while drunk at a bar in the middle of nowhere. SHIT AIN'T HAPPENING.

The dubs were a bit better than expected, but -of course- no match for the original voices.
