    from what i know they are doing this to add more fluff to the plot and his character. in the actual show things just feel into place

    I don’t know, I am a big fan of how they did Kirito in this abridged series, but unlike most of the people here, I actually like the original Kirito to. I think the key with this series and other abridged series is to not put too much weight on what the original character was like. This Kirito is a brand new character in a slightly new story, try to project as little as possible and I think you will come to enjoy the character more. But like I said, I love both versions alot, though I actually feel like a lot of the VAs in the abridge are surprisingly really good lol

    How can Abridged Kirito detract from the original character when Abridged Kirito is an entirely new character? I kind of get not enjoying the dickishness but that’s the entire point. Character development guys.

    Please watch Exclamation Point’s review/comparison of the original vs the abridged series. Pretty much the best explanation out there IMO. A few friends of mine I introduced to Something Witty Entertainment’s parody had similar reactions to you guys: mainly saying that Kirito is an asshole and that the original is better. After they watched episode 5 and onwards, though, they changed their tune. They gained a better appreciation of it when I showed them Exclamation Point’s review. Maybe you guys appreciate it better, too.

    You know I just thought about it. Why would he even bother looking for that item. If they die in the game their brains fry. It’s physically impossible for them to come back.

    I really don’t understand what you find likable about OG Kirito. He’s so bland.

    I know that these are old, but all these guys do is complain about the humor in sao abridged, then laugh at all of the jokes. Renegades React is a much better, and grounded channel.

    How the heck is the original Kirito better. I just can’t see any possible reason that would ever be true.

    Sorry but the real Kirito wasn’t a person . He was just the word Overpowerd! (Also the abrieged Kirito is Literary the greatest Character of all time!!!)

    Is there a reason items that give charisma bonuses often look horrendous, tacky, or both?

    Kirito in the abridged series is an asshole, but at least you’re actually feeling something when you watch him

    Kirito in SAO Abridged is more like a kid who’s been nobody and happened to be good at game so he can mock other people who aren’t as good at it as he is. So he’s basically more or less like a real person and not a cliche’. Huh, Kirito is more like KIRA YAMATO, also incredibly bland and awful jesus-like protagonist… Who could have thought.

    abridged kirito is much better. his character is actually believable as a lonely gamer

    Meh, I disagree completely with you guys, I love what they did with kirito. It’s fucking hilarious. It’s because he’s caring and nice person in the r anime that makes the fact that he’s a dick work so well.

    This is a weird fucking episode. It gives you the first glimpse of how spectacular this abridged series is going to become, but the live action bits just feel really out of place.

    but the original kirito is so dull and boring

    Manga time: kirito gives klein the revive item, because one of kleins friends dies defending kirito while he fought ‘santa’. In the anime it doesn’t show this

    I find asshole Kirito more interesting. The original just felt bland and a bit generic to me. Many great anime have that kind of powerful main male protagonist who the best of his kind, but almost all are practically perfect except for a flaw or two. But hey also have a unique personality to them. Light thinks he’s the god a new world, Goku’s a naive idiot, meliodis (probably spelled that wrong) is comedic and well (skip pad that other detail), and kirito’s thing is that he’s a loner. All characters I just mentioned have that except to a lesser digree in some cases, and it’s a tiny part of them compared to their whole personality. Abridged Kirito however, is an person who’s full of himself and for a logical reason he’s as good as he thinks he is. It’s why Rick from rick and Morty is so like able, he’s a jerk but what I call the correct asshole. One who has a reason to his personality. He’s not some perfect hero he’s just some kid who’s good at MMOs.

    I Think your biggest issue with this is that you Kind of misunderstand what that is supposed to be. Its not just a shortening of the story, its a complete retelling in Form of a parody

    It’s funny I used to dislike what they were doing to Abridged Kirito like the rest of you when I first started watching this but now I freaking love what they have done with him. I get the point of what they were aiming for, in retrospect, and they nailed it perfectly.

    It goes to show that if you have a vision then you must focus on what you can do to bring it to life and to ignore the criticism.

    In the original DBZ goku was never stupid or at least not at the degree of DBZ abridged but ever since abridged he’s been just retarded in dragon ball super.
