The story is pretty dark though. - HeavyDonkeyKong

My gosh, do something darker like Akame Ga KIll... I swear.. They killed everyone off--but I continued to watch it! It was awesome!

3 Tone down the Harem

Kirito doesn't have all of the other girls fall in love with him. I would really appreciate a strong friendship.

Does anyone even know what an ACTUAL harem is like? I would like to point out that Kirito is already with Asuna, Silica sees Kirito as an OLDER BROTHER, Lisbeth does have feelings for Kirito, but respect his and Asunas relationship, Leafa gets over her feelings for Kirito and Sinon NEVER had feelings for Kirito. An actual harem has to have at least 3 women fighting over him, which never happens. - Coreylordo

4 Make Kirito less of a Gary Stu

Kirito is cool and all, but he's TOO cool. Kirito, at no point in the series, faces anything remotely resembling a character-changing event. He's the same "quiet, tall, dark, powerful cool dude" for the entire series. He should evolve as the story progresses. - Jackamalio

Yeah, and give him a consistent personality. Many people hate Eren Jaeger and Light Yagami, but they are 3 dimensional fleshed out characters, even if they aren't what many people want them to be. Same with Issei from High School dxd. He was consistent and simple, and I hated that, but I liked that I hated that. Kirito should at least be that. Not a skin for a viewer to wear.

He's lost a few fights and wasn't able to win some fights without help, he HAS depth, like feeling guilt over killing people as seen in the Gun Gale Online arc, people say he's PERFECT at everything when he's not. - Coreylordo

5 Don't reuse the princess rescue story
6 Remove some characters Remove some characters

Oh yes, I would REALLY love it if they removed Sugou. I despise that pedophile. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Please remove Sugou, he sucks so bad, I even made a list of how much he sucks. The show would be better without this pervert. - AnimeDrawer

Am I the only one who wished that kazuto killed that a--hole in that parking lot fight scene?! - HeavyDonkeyKong

7 Make Asuna Yuuki more badass

YES! In the first half of the aoncrad arc she was the GREATEST!
Then they actually got together and then they became painfully cheesy with Asuna Yuuki also becoming a ditzy damsel. - HeavyDonkeyKong

8 Give characters that don't get much screen time more screen time V 1 Comment
9 Have better pacing

I think this is a major issue with the first arc. It was confusing seeing Kirito jump through so many levels, with little development in between.

The first arc could have and also should have lasted several seasons. - HeavyDonkeyKong

10 Give Klein a girlfriend

Yeah! Let Klein date Sinon so she'll stop messing with Kirito. I love her character but I hate when she gets flirty with Kirito, he has Asuna.

I semiship kirito with Sinon. But since he has asuna, Klein can have her lolol. - HeavyDonkeyKong

The Contenders

11 Use an actual writer from great developers
12 Improve the looks of some characters

My god they need to improve Kirito's looks because there are 2 scenes I've seen that Kirito looks like someone else (In the extra edition he looks like Roy Mustang and in the Beater episode(episode 2) he looks like Eren Yeager making that creepy face - Hoxton

13 Talk about Kirito's parents and how they died
14 Hire a game director to help

Hire someone like Hideo Kojima or Hidetaka Miyazaki for this one - Hoxton

15 Remove the weird parts

So what I mean by "weird" parts are these naked scenes. It goes way too far at that point.

16 Give Kirito a male best friend

No I don't mean Klein or Agil. Create another badass male character that can start as Kirito's rival, but then later becomes his best friend. Who knows? This guy can even make all the girls fight over him instead of Kirito.

17 Not make it an anime
18 Remove Suguha V 1 Comment
19 Use elements from the video game

There are so many characters and different side quests that can make the show better and funnier

20 Redo it over again
