    Best Anime of the year, at least
    Very unique. I expected this to be a rip off of //hack, etc, but it is very different compared to any other anime. I liked that the romance wasn't cliche, the story line was entertaining, and the fight scenes were dramatic. I hope they do the next two arcs. Best anime of the year, if not all time for me.

    Very boring review. ignore this one xD
    I am not one for making a review on a anime or anything for that matter. I have not read the manga or light novels. (or whatever it's called) I am just someone who watches anime to keep myself from being bored. waiting for each and every episode of this series was worth it. I hate waiting but with every episode their was always a twist. It always kept me wanting to watch more. Whether or not their ...

    Extremely Satisfying
    After watching the series to it's conclusion, I can honestly say this was one of the most engrossing anime ever. With an engaging story driven by the emotion of it's characters, along with plenty of action and beautiful animation, it is an easy recommendation. Not too many series had kept me on the edge of my seat until the very end and truly made me care for it's characters trying to defy the ...

    This may be a game, but we're not playing around.
    5 out of 5 stars! Sword Art Online. What can I say about Sword Art Online! Never have I or many fellow anime fans watched and been drawn to a series than we have with SAO. Spanning from well written scripts for every character (not just the protagonists/antagonists) to the smooth design and art of the anime itself.

    Every gamer's dream is to be teleported to the gaming world ...

    Sword Art Online - END
    It has been a long ride and the finale is one that leaves me nostalgic for my early anime and MMO days.

    Not since .hack have I felt so connected to an anime. I know it has to do with the MMO genre and RPG games in general but it is also the romance and the Heroes Journey that draws me into the world of SAO. Perhaps the series is overhyped and many fans may see some clichés in the end I think ...

    Amazing Anime even better Light Novels
    To all the people complaining about the lack of depth... well then you need to read the Light Novels. I also felt they rushed through SAO with the Anime but if you read SAO and all the side stories that go with it you will have an even better connection and understanding of the characters. Hopefully this will make you appreciate just how amazing this story is.

    5 Stars Isn't Enough
    The anime in itself is a typical love story, but, with the addition of action and adventure involved i think it deserves a 5 star. The graphics are great, comments towards it leave people in awe for the current episode and waiting for the next. I truly thin it deserves its standing as one of the top 5 anime on this site and anywhere else on Earth.

    Yet, my opinion doesn't matter, but what ...

    Unexpected & so close to perfection !
    This piece of augmented reality will certainly be amidst our future as game studios and technology itself is made available for everyone, the anime has been taken care from the beginning to become a "must-see" anime title for everyone, summarizing, a piece of art.

    My current obsession
    I wrote a partial review of SAO - up to the end of the first arc - for my website a couple months back - just noticed the review on here and thought I'd share part of it and a link to the full review. I'll be doing another post about the second arc when it completes... oh so soon...

    New this past summer in Japan is an anime about an MMORPG with a twist. Sword Art Online debuts with characters ...

    Addicting, Amazing, and Imaginative
    I will start by listing the faults, since well, I did give it 5 stars, but it is more like a 4.75 in my book. All will be listed as spoilers, as the first season was a 5 in my book, and the second, though more enjoyable because of the decrease in intensity, was less amazing, and is hard to describe what and where exactly it went wrong without listing spoilers.
