Really nobody’s following this account, so I think it’s a safe bet that I can get away with stepping out of my manly man image for a bit.
Normally I won’t allow myself to admit enjoying anime. “In English, the term is defined as a style of animation originating in Japan, which often features colorful graphics, vibrant characters and action-filled plots with fantastic or futuristic themes.” I have nothing against the form itself (though yes, I’d gladly point out how funny people look with pointy chins and conical hair *chuckle*), but the less savory examples of it will forever scar its reputation.
T_T Oh man.
SWORD ART ONLINE. Hundreds of people of all ages across Japan strap virtual reality consoles on their heads and their minds are transported to the most realistic MMORPG to date: “Sword Art Online” or SAO. However, it’s all fun and games until you realize the log-out button is missing and the game creator turns out to be a psychopath who decided to take the game to the next level of reality: if you die in the game, your head gets fried with microwaves, and well, you’re dead for good. No respawns, no Phoenix Down, death is death. (Makes you think twice about Zerg rushing, no?) You can either spend your life in the game or escape by beating all 100 dungeon floors and reaching the top of the tower.
Panic ensues; children cry for their parents; fear pushes people past their limits; a girl huddles on a bed waiting for the nightmare to end. Those who remain push past despair, united by a common goal and driven by the will to live: the vanguards who push the front lines, the item-makers who support their efforts, and the information brokers who offer maps and knowledge. Eventually, everyone finds a place in this reality. An old man buys a home, content to spend his days leveling up his fishing skill. Intentional or no, they end up fulfilling the creator’s dream. An intricate world is developed that would put Neverland to shame.
All the while, two souls travel through this world, and over two years, they fight back tears, learn to laugh again, lose their selves only find them again stronger than ever. Together they join their swords in a dance of ferocity and synergy that withstands all tests.
So ya, the premise is thought out very well, but what made this special for me was seeing the two main characters act out yin and yang, which was pretty beautiful. There’s no way my words would ever convey it… so I decided to post a summary in pictures. I’ll leave it at that.
