First Impressions

So, this is one of those series that everyone keeps hyping about and given the fact that Accel World's Reki Kawahara wrote the series may or may not given impressions already. Anyways, this is most likely the blockbuster of the Summer this time around and I hope it will certainly live up to the hype.

Yea I'm also super excited for this series especially since I have read quite a bit of the light novels but I think that it is a bit to early to write this series off as the best anime of the Summer season... It's definitely one I'm most hyped for though.

Darn boy you're quick, series haven't even started yet and you made the thread already.

Anyway this is one of the series I'm looking forward to this summer, hopefully it won't fall shy of my expectations. The LN is apparently hugely popular so assuming the adaptation goes well, all should be good.

Episode 1 or rather the preview episode already pre-aired in Japan on 24th of June from what I've heard.

I've yet to see the stream up yet though, either Raw or Subbed.

Considering that I never heard of this series before or ever... and .hack has been out for quite some time, I too will have to say it reminds me of .hack as well. :)

But the light novel was originally a web novel, which started way back in about 2001, I think. It was only in 2009 that it was serialized in print.

Yep SAO was being published when hack was just announced it wasn't until 09 that it was published in book format. Anyway As a fan of the novels i was not disappointed. The anime was quite accurate to the LN's. The music,animation and casting were all about what i expected from PV's and i'm looking foreward to when the anime goes into the darker aspects of it. Favorite anime of the season by far so far.
