    First half great, second half sucked.
    The first half of this series was wonderful, and had cool battles, epic sound track, and pretty good emotional drama (I shed some man tears near the end of the 14th episode). Plus, I love Asuna she is a great anime heroine, and they don't rely on cheap moe or fanservice. However, the second half was not as good, and while I do like faeries, I have to admit that it was below average. Asuna was just ...

  • Realmente muy bueno!
    Es realmente muy buen anime, vale la pena verlo.

    Al principio dudaba, perp a mitad del primer capítulo quedé enganchado, una idea que si bien no es original, está muy bien implementada en el juego.

    Saludos

    This show is amazing
    This show kept me wanting more every week just counting the seconds until the next episode would air. Anyone who gives this show less than five stars is crazy and doesn't now what they are talking about.

    Two seasons for the price of one
    Really good but the first half is much better IMO (better fights, better characters, better world) 2nd half was just too girly (fairies and romance). I also think its strange they still wanted to go back into the virtual world at the end after everything they've been through. If it was me I'd probably never touch a computer games again.

    So in short first half is for the boys, 2nd half for the ...

  • Great Concept and well Executed
    This is an amazing anime the Sword Art Online arc, up to around episode 15 cemented itself as my favourite anime of all time. The main story is an idea many RPG players and most other gamers have thought of before. The story was well scripted and does not drag on, the only downside is that I felt the story progressed too quickly at times skipping multiple levels. The second arc, Alfhiem Online, I ...

  • Skeptical at first, but loved it
    The first season got me hooked! At first I thought of .hack// and was super skeptical but this anime really sets itself apart from its predecessors. Being based on a light novel series, the second season took a big turn that I'm not too sure about. Loved this anime nonetheless.

    Terrific and engaging, but short.
    'Sword Art Online' is a fantastic series, mixing fantasy and sci-fi beautifully with a compelling story. It has a little bit of every thing: action, romance, humor, and tragedy. The characters are full of life, I found myself relating to some and having sympathy for others... *sigh* love hurts some times...

    I strongly recommend this to any fan of anime, and any fan of fantasy or sci-fi ...

    It's great! Go watch it now!
    First half is better than the second half, just due to how it worked out. But it's a great series overall.

    The main problem with the second half is that they kind of start a new series, only they don't. Asuna winds up doing nothing throughout most of it, which is a downer given that she was a strong character in the first one.
