The Other Side is back with another look at the madcap world of bad writing and anime cliches that is Sword Art Online, this time looking at the show’s second season! It’s going to be hard to top the mega-hit that was the previous episode, but the TOS Trio gives it a shot, dissecting the imbecilic plot of the series; examining why “idiot plots” will always be terrible; why so many American anime fans were turned off by season 2; and why Kirito is worse than Al Qaeda! It’s a parade of insight and nazi jokes the likes of which you won’t find on any other podcast!’

    Also first post:

    Hey Max-Vader, since you quite accurately predicted Season 2, what do you expect from SEASON 3?

    • Max-Vader

      Okay, here goes…
      -Kirito will still be an unlikable dickweed.
      -They’ll put in some nonsense about “if you die in the game, you die for real” again.
      -Hell, they’ll probably re-use the idea of player-killers for it.

      -Despite the fact that the game this time is about guns, they’ll find some bullshit excuse why Kirito can still swing a sword around.
      -Kirito will have yet another pointless in-game makeover.
      -There will be lolis.
      -There will probably be some badass, stone-cold sniper chick to really skullfuck you with no lube in the originality department.
      -The romance wil still be god-awful.
      -Kirito will continue building his virtual harem.

        (Probably) Spoilers, but isn’t Season 3 the one where he chooses a girl avatar?

        • Normality

          Gives me a reason to not watch the series (as if I needed a reason to begin with).

      • Emblyon

        wow, i’ve seen the first 2 eps and so far you’ve already got almost all.
        -there is a single character(so far) called “death gun” who can kill from within the game.
        -kirito has what appears to be a lightsaber.
        -in-game makeover=female avatar
        -loli’s………well scilica was in an ep and they did the same thing where that tentical plant grabbed her the same way.
        -there is a sniper chick and shes one of the main characters.
        -the next 2 are probably right too, but ts only 2 eps so i cant say anything yet.

        • Max-Vader

          Holy hell! SAO, you predictable piece of shit!

        • Jahmere Durham

          We found out half of those things in the ending of ep 1

    Season 2 in a nutshell.

    • Mikel Crawford

      Two wrongs does NOT make a right people; Even though it seems she hits puberty, not like it matters anyways.

      • Jahmere Durham

        Those eyes? Whose are they?

        • Cirrus

          I’m just waiting for it to be announced that old Takumi, a.k.a. The General, is actually Deus Ex Machina and that every world where the Future Diary Survival Games occur as well as the people living in them are actually just illusions he created because he was bored.

        • …Generic anime eyes…

    Kirito: worse than terrorists…

    Hopefully that catches on.

    Actually, most of the incest supporters I’ve seen have been female fans, especially for things like Inuyasha and Devil May Cry. If you say you don’t like incest, then they’ll fly into a rage and accuse you of being narrow minded and oppressive. It’s even worse if you say you don’t like their gay incest otp, then you’re basically Hitler and literally murdering all homosexuals because you don’t like their fetish.

    • That’s because the incest element doesn’t concern them. Anime fangirls are fucking obsessed with hooking people up based on superficial bullshit. Especially yaoi boys. They’re mostly socially inept high schoolers creating relationships they can live vicariously through because they’re completely unloved in their real lives. Hence why they respond with such vitriol; to attack their ships is to attack the only love they get to experience in their lives.
