    SAO is now my all time favorite anime.
    This has got to be one of the best animes I've watched. As a gamer for many years, SAO has become my favorite series.
    Each episode keeps you at the edge of your seat making you want to know what happens next. And as each episode passes, the more and more exciting/amazing things become. The characters are amazing, kind of made me wish I lived in SAO haha.
    I really hope the series isn't completely ...

    Sword Art Online: One of the best :)
    This anime was incredible! It left you hanging at the edge of your seat. I've always hated cliffhangers, especially on good anime.
    When you watch Sword Art Online, your so immersed into the players lives, those moments that make you want to cry and to jump out of your chair and cheer for them.

    Overall I give this anime a ...

    Exciting with nice ideas
    first off this anime MOVES WAY TO FAST.

    It has the options to develop on the fighting system, characters (other than the main 2 and maybe klein..ish), and item's/mob system. They choose not, the episodes feel rush, honestly the first 10 episodes could have been dragged into 20 or 25.

    That being said it still is good, the uniqueness of their situation and creativeness of the game keeps you ...

    The best anime ever.
    best.anime.ever.
    Even if the first two parts were a bit rushed, this anime pulls out the actions, emotion, and a plot line like no other, for sure the best anime of 2012 and makes it to the number #1 anime on my list.

    Great Storyline and character development
    Once I started watching this, I got hooked. I like it takes into perspective all the human interaction and emotions if such a situation were to happen. Instead of making it into just watching a fantasy anime, this has become more of a idea of what could happen if such a system existed. This has a good balance of action, adventure, and drama. I hope there will be more in the future!

    Amazing is an understatement
    This is an AMAZING series, although it's short (not sure if more episodes are due or not) It's got a lot of depth and how they've managed to mix classic RPG game play with a serious story line is genius! Not only that but visually it's one of the most beautiful anime's I've ever seem! I'd even go so far as to put it on par with Studio Ghibli. Though it does seem to rush through the story ...

    SAO is one of the best anime's I have ever watched!!
    In my honest opinion, I actually thought it was gonna be one of those really boring magic anime's but when I saw the first episode, my reaction was like "Wow, I have never seen anything like this." This anime has an out of the box imagination that even I haven't thought of before. SAO is a VRMMORPG. Never thought of a VR based anime. To make it short since many of you don't bother reading the ...

    Best Anime of the Year!
    This is by far one of the most thrilling, most beautiful pieces of work created in 2012. Based off of the light novel by Reki Kawahara starting in 2009. SAO has grown to international success and has since been recreated in 3 different manga, and now an anime. The anime is absolutely beautiful, both aesthetically and dramatically. Definite recommendation to those who are 魔法 (Mahō - Magic) anime ...

    -Sword Art Online- Forge your own Future
    Reki Kawahara's light novel series Sword Art Online is a shining example of how great writing combined with a dedicated anime staff can create the most compelling epic of 2012. As a reader and a fan of the Sword Art Online light novels, the anime goes beyond expectations to produce a coherent tale of life trapped in a virtual world with real life consequences.

    In this virtual world Aincrad, the ...
