Top 10 Ways to Fix Sword Art Online

Even though I like it and say it's decent let's make it better then shall we.
The Top Ten
1 Remove the fan service

Because this is really not fun to see for an anime with a game genre

2 Tone down the Harem

Honeslty, the harem is seriously over-exaggerated by SAO haters. Yeah it's slightly annoying but it only really existed in the Fairy Dance arc. Rika and Suguha, yes they have feelings for Kirito, plus everyone else in the Fairy Dance but that's it. Silica and Shino don't have feelings at all. "Oh but what about in the Calibur arc when Shino flirted to Kirito? " Well guess what she was teasing the other girls who feel for Kirigaya

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.

3 Kill Off Kirito

They must first kill Asuna. They need to scary and bloody kill her right in front of Kirito, and when she cries in agony in a pool of blood, let Kirito go to her. He will sob over the corpse of his beloved, and then he is also killed. And all this in real life.

Kirito should die. Every time when I watching Sword Art Online I want to kill him in most painful way possible.

But why are you watching SAO if you hate Kirito? He is great character!

4 Make Kirito less of a Gary Stu

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.

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.

5 Make Asuna Yuuki more badass

When I first saw her I was like "Hey, she might be a cool character! " But no. She had horrible character development. She could be been way cooler. Also, the relationship between her and Kirito was super rushed.

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.

Please do. There is so much potential in her character but she always relied on Kirito to save her.

6 Have better pacing

Yeah the pacing was all over the pace. Especially after the two year time skip in SAO. It makes me wonder why the government couldn't hack the game from the outside but Kirito could from the inside.

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.

7 Give characters that don't get much screen time more screen time

Klein was a pretty cool dude. They completely cut him out of the game to show us this Gary Stu

8 Remove some characters

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.

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

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

9 Have a darker story

Thousands of people died in SAO but the people in the game aren't really worried. That fisherman didn't care that he was trapped in a game and none of the other characters seem to treat it that way.

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

The story is pretty dark though.

10 Get rid of the incest

The fairy dance arc was kind of good but I hated the incest.

The Contenders
11 Give it an author who isn't a horny teenager

Reki Kawahara was the worst person to do anything. He created this story just so he could add in a romance to completely steal the show's screentime from the plot, he added Suguha so he could entertain his creepy incest fantasies, he added that weird tentacle dude so he could attempt to rape Asuna to entertain more of his weird fetishes, he added Sugou to ACTUALLY rape Asuna, because he thought if he used rape as a PLOT DEVICE, he could increase shock value. That's just disgusting. Every female, upon introduction, is a very mysterious and interesting character, but then they just fall in love with Kirito, lose their independence, and be useless from then on forever. Also, once Reki Kawahara realized his "masterpiece" SUCKED, he added a girl who had AIDS as a plot device to make people sad and think it was actually good, even though that arc was just filler. So yeah. To fix Sword Art Online, all you need to do is start over from the very beginning. With a DIFFERENT AUTHOR.

12 Don't reuse the princess rescue story
13 Make it more bloody
14 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.

15 Make the abridged series the new canon

No, honestly. It's fun and all but the original SAO is still all the way better

16 Use an actual writer from great developers

That would be great. There's too many plot holes.

17 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.

18 Replace Yuki Kajiura with someone else

Am I the only one who actually likes Yuki Kjiura? I haven't heard any of her compositions for SAO but she had done a wonderful job composing music for Le potrait de petitite Cossette.

19 Replace some voice actors
20 Remove the weird parts

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

21 Reveal what happened to Klein's pizza

Please, it's literally the most important part in the entire anime. Everything rests upon Klein's pizza.

22 Give Sinon more screen time
23 Hire a game director to help
24 Talk about Kirito's parents and how they died
25 Have a Esports Arc

This would work really good in the story by adding new characters and developing old ones and making kirito and friends work as a proper team.
