So I know I was supposed to list what Anime/Manga I think were supposed to be the pillars of Shonen Jump, but I figured since it is Valentine’s Day, I thought I would make a special review for the occasion so forgive me 😛 Now I don’t like to give scores to Animes I review because if it’s not a highscore then chances are you probably won’t watch it and if I score wrongly then if you do watch it and don’t like you’ll be like “ahh what a liar,” but as I said before it’s all my opinion so enjoy it!
Now the anime I’ve chosen for this special occasion is one of my recent favorites Sword Art Online! There were many, many other romances that I could choose from but seeing how recent SAO was I figured why not give them more exposure :] Now all I’m really going to say is that damn I really liked this anime. Haha, the main protagonists Kirito and Asuna, just wow the staff did a really nice job on making the romance truly bloom. Honestly throughout the whole series I just wanted to see them together, that’s how strongly I felt about the two.
The romance was fantastic, you could truly side with Kirito and his emotions and Asuna with hers. But besides the romance, the fight scenes were fantastic, sometimes Kirito would seem/be way overpowered, but the writers made sure to turn his OP’ness into what makes him so badass. The series itself was satisfying and played out pretty well. I definitely hope a season 2 will be coming out though I’ve heard that maybe, just maybe it’s been decided that there will be a season 2 😀
