    In defense of Sword Art Online.
    Source: http://thedarksideofequality.blogspot.sg/2013/02/in-defense-of-sword-art-online-anime.html

    I've been reading critics of Sword Art Online and I am disappointed at the critics' lack of appreciation for the Anime. Let me first begin by stating that I have not read the Light Novel and am approaching this entirely from my understanding of the Anime. In this post, I hope to do the Anime ...

    Great Adventure, Action, and some comedy moments anime
    This anime is practically the best and most entertaining anime that thousands or maybe millions of people are enjoying each time a new episode is out and funny moments happening. Also i have to say the romance part is practically the "second" best part about this anime so far (Action is #1). if this is an on-going anime (EXTREMELY HOPING IT IS!) then many people will be extremely happy (MOSTLY ME ...

    SAO - Sword Art Online
    All I can say is this is one of the most amazing animes ive seen. Watching the first episode I loved the idea of a true VR system I was hooked instantly, After watching every episode I had the urge to see more I wanted to see more. I felt what they were feeling the thought of being trapped or losing someone you knew and possibly loved, I could feel the emotions of the characters.

    A Voice of Reason Among the Adoration
    There can be little doubt that SAO is one of, if not the best new shows of the season. That being said, I have some significant issues with the pacing and ending of the first story arc, and since the reviews for this show on CR are almost entirely 5-star ravings of how amazing the show is without any critique, I'm endeavoring to fill that void. There are plenty of things SAO does well, but if you ...

    Was good, but had unused potential.
    This is my very first review.

    Setting: I did like the setting. The first three episodes were a good following to the plot, but after that, it went downhill ( In my opinion ). There was countless fillers, and the second half wasn't even necessary.

    Characters:
    I did like Kirito's character, but everything in SAO just went his way. Like the time where he almost died to Kuradeel, for ...

    Don't bother with the second season
    So this show is pretty good. The first half is great 4/5 stars. But it's bogged down by the second half of the series which merits 2/5 stars. And here's why:

    The first half of the series is about people who are trapped in a game that they have to clear to escape. The catch is, if they die in game they die in real life. This makes for some compelling scenes. For one, it actually matters if ...

    My wife love it so much
    That alone is enough to make anyone watch this. She doesn't like anime cause she doesn't care for the subtitles. The storyline just hooked her. It was so sincere and full of good action. We want more!

    Thoughts and reflections of an interesting online society
    So I've never actually been an avid anime enthusiast over a good portion of my life but I've been marathoning hundreds of hours of anime shows the past two weeks for a reason unbeknownst to me, maybe to induce myself into a depression or find the meaning of life. I do want to give my thoughts about Sword Art Online mostly because I feel it's message hit more at home with me. I've lived the ...

    Out of This World! (Literally)
    I've been putting off watching this anime in the thought that it will probably be your average RPG anime. They get stuck in this world and to be able to escape, they need to defeat the big boss. Of course in the end they probably survive and defeat the boss as they all do. Happy ending. The end.

    On second thoughts, scratch that. I know it does sound really cliché and you've probably watched ...
