DID YOU KNOW?
Did you know that Sword Art Online: Alicization got involved in a sexual assault controversy? Its premiere was well-received by critics and audience alike, until the tenth episode. The "Taboo Index" episode somehow showed a scene which is kind of inappropriate - or taboo. It shows two female characters gagged and tied to a bed, then raped by two bullies in front of their friend. Although there's nothing explicit displayed, the sequence clearly implied a sexual assault. And thus, made most of the fans uncomfortable. Fans are also quick to notice that after the episode's airing, some sites to watch SAO: Alicization had the graphic part censored or "altered". It did not take long before Sword Art Online creator Reki Kawahara expressed his apology on Twitter.
The third season of the science fiction and adventure anime series had its fair share of both positive and negative feedback. The same goes for Sword Art Online games. Most of the video game adaptation of the anime and light novel series received an above-average rating from different sites. An example is Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet, one of the few Sword Art Online games on PC, received a 7/10 rating from Steam. However, the action RPG game was only graded 64% and 5.9/10 by Metacritic and IGN.com, respectively. Both the light novel and the anime series still undergoing developments, as well as its games. Fans can still wait for the best Sword Art Online game, among the current ones.
