Terror in Virtual Reality

Today we have two anime that have stirred up the anime community for two very different reasons.  The first is the ever popular Sword Art Online II which basically is an adolescent power fantasy that is just on the cusp of compelling but slips off because it just can’t stop making the protagonist look superhuman.  The other is Watanabe Shinichiro’s rather ballsy commentary on the state of the world, Terror in Resonance, which is definitely a cut above most shows but it lacks any real teeth to make a deep impact.
