    A great anime, something for everyone to enjoy in this epic adventure.
    If you like anime and video games you need to watch this anime, it stars Kirito, he's kind of a shy kid but a strong person, in the world of SAO. There's an engaging story here and it only gets better. This anime has got a lot of reviews and there's a reason why. I don't want to spoil anything so sit down and enjoy this anime.

    Deep and Engaging Story, Great Characters.
    Well this is my first review. As most of you know there are light novels for this series, all of which I have read. And this has been perhaps the best read I've had in ages. The storyline, characters, vastness of the world and romance between asuna and kirito are perfect, and the twists will leave you dying for more. If you're here for an anime with a great storyline, have played any rpgs or enjoy ...

  • A Nicely Told Story and Believable Premise.
    A wonderful story, that had my daughter and I hooked from the first episode. After finishing the series, we have been trying out different MMO's just to find the same feel as SAO. Looking forward to any future releases, and now to get a hold of the novels and mangas.

  • What a great concept
    The concept for this Anime (based off the light novels) is amazing, it is such a great premise. This is built on by the psychological effects it shows while managing to balance out sub plots and the main story arc. Every person I have showed this to is very impressed by it and I would highly recommend watching it.

  • Amazing and Captivating.
    This was a great series. The characters were simple and so was the plot. The plot was very hooking and always making me to watch further into the series. The love story between Kirito and Asuna building up from Episode 2 was fantastic.

    Great anime.

    It has some serious flaws, but over all a good series.
    I will go into the good aspects of the series later but first I want to start with the issues.

    The introduction led me to believe this anime is way to much like.Hack but on a grander scale. (A boy enters a game world, it happens to be a head set virtual world that you put on, suddenly you are put into a coma by the game.

    The creator/boss also has a few similarities with that of the creator ...

    Greatest work of Art EVER!
    This is the greatest anime that I have ever watched. This is the greatest anything that I've ever watched. I NEED MORE!!!!!!! If you have ever watched anything, then you'll like this. This probably sounds really biased and one-sided but if you watch this, you will truly understand what a perfect anime looks like. I know it will never happen but...I wish that this anime would continue for the next ...

    My wife love it so much
    That alone is enough to make anyone watch this. She doesn't like anime cause she doesn't care for the subtitles. The storyline just hooked her. It was so sincere and full of good action. We want more!

    Love, action, story... Amazing anime
    I love anime packed with romance, action, and a good plot to tie it together. This anime has that and more. Without spoiling too much I just want to say some things. The story is great, especially if you understand the world of gaming and what it offers. The action scenes are well animated and overall the animation is one of the best I've seen. Finally, the romance is top notch. They really ...
