    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.

    Connect and let it draw you in!
    The realistic emotions built into this series makes it not only fun to watch the adventure but humorous as well. The love stories really draw you in as well. Kirito is always breaking heart where ever he goes. Kinda makes me jealous. Great Show!!

    I just love it so much!
    Action packed and very straightforward story. You can't complain about them going to slow in the plotline since it's such a fast pace storyline. I'm just afraid it will have to end :(. One thing I wish was better is the fighting scene. I envisioned a much more epic final battle with Heathcliff when they were still in SAO. Please make this final battle more epic. Very enjoyable characters and rich ...
