Why is Kirito named Kirito

If you are an anime lover, chances are you’re familiar with Kirito Sao. Kirito Sao stars as a fictional character in popular anime series Sword Art Online by Reki Kawahara. Kirito’s real name is Kazuto Kirigaya. Although his black get-up and dual samurai sword could be considered trendy, this anime character sucks despite popularity in the anime and manga world. Here’s why:

No Personality

Kirito Sao has zero personality. We are only enticed by his powers. Reki lacked imagination when developing his personality. He has no personality; shocking since he’s the central protagonist. Kirito’s role is fundamental: he fights his enemies, winning him the admiration from several girls. Kirito is defined by his sword. If he can win a fight against a gun using only sword, I must say, that’s pretty unrealistic. Kirito doesn’t have many friends and tends to keep to himself.

Womanizer

Kirito is constantly depicted as a character with several love interests, if you even want to consider the girls he dates “love interests.” While there is supposed to be a love story behind his relationship with Asuna, anime character, Sinon, catches his attention during the Bullet of the Bullets tournament. While he spends a significant amount of time trying to come to Asuna’s rescue, he is cuddling it up with Sinon. Clearly he can’t commit.

Not Realistic

Kirito Sao is not a realistic character. He essentially has no weaknesses which balance out his talent for video games. His little sister beats him at a game of kendo. This just proves no matter how strong he is in the game, in the real world he isn’t as great as everyone makes him out to be. Some argue he is too competent and noble. In some ways Kirito is a mindless character.
