    BEST ANIME IN A LONG TIME
    I forgot how amazing anime could be when it comes to dragging my soul into another world of fantasy and adventure--but SAO really brought that back! This will be one of those animes that goes down in otaku history like Naruto, Bleach, or Inuyasha--but better! The maker of this anime also created Accel World, so be sure to check that out too!! Two different animes with different styles, but both ...

    As good as the novel
    If your anything of an anime fan, this is one anime you'll want to add to your belt of anime seen. Having read the novels up to the 10th one, this anime is truly one to follow. 10 thumbs up!!

    From the start of the 1st episode your introduced to the main characters, and to the first arc of the series. As the story moves on, you see two people fall in love, the main character become a bad guy ...

    Best Anime That I Have Watched A Decade! XD
    This anime was what made me return to watching anime! I love the concept of MMO gaming with action, love, and suspense/thriller. It is just one big pot of awesome concepts and ideas into one greatly written anime. I think everyone should watch this and see why everyone is talking about it now!

    Purchased Premium Membership from Crunchyroll just for this anime.
    It's really amazing. They skip a lot of essential story pieces, but this is still a great anime. The art style is absolutely fantastic. I hope they go back and fill in extra episodes to close some of the huge gaps. (Like 1 episode this is going on, next episode is suddenly 2 years later... really? I want the the pieces they're leaving out because the show is so good!)

    Very Good and Engaging
    This is my first Review for an anime. I believe this is the BEST anime i've ever seen. It has great characters, great storyline, unbelieveably unpredictable plots. Overall, just really good. (I'm bad at reviews.)

    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 ...
