    A game with flaws and strengths.
    Anyone who is a gamer will readily admit to spending numerous hours playing a video game. But what if the game was extreme to the point of being physically impossible to stop playing until you won and an in-game death makes you die in real life?

    Enter Sword Art Online (SAO), an anime about a video game of the same name. What we have from this show is a survival story set in a high-fantasy world ...

    Lives at stake to Girlfriend's vagina at stake.
    Idea
    Set in the future where Mass Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game (MMORPG) incorporates virtual reality in a way it is almost reality. Think of it like the movie The Matrix. Players log in Sword Art Online, a fantasy-theme world, via a device called "Nerve Gear." It is a helmet placed on the head which connect players online virtually. Nerve Gear simulates all five ...

    Review of Season 1&2
    As an avid anime fan who has seen hundreds of anime, I can honestly say that this anime is one of the most memorable anime to have been released in the past few years. Everything about is is high quality. From the artwork to the voice acting to the animation, everything is well done. Many people have complained through their comments that the pacing of the first season (ep. 1-12) is too fast, or ...

    It's good but not the best
    As many other reviewers point out, this show is good however it is overrated. Many who can relate or want to relate to the main character will find enjoyment in the show. However if you read any of the reviews out there that are not 5 stars you will get a better picture of what the anime has to offer. Now most of the faults that are in the anime are due to the limitations of a seasonal Anime, such ...

    Like every great anime...
    There is only one thing I hate about this anime: WAITING FOR THE NEXT EPISODE!
    I love the characters, the designs are amazing, the worlds believable, the plot twisting and intertwining...you can't ask for more from an anime.

    Just plan out AMAZING!!!
    Just by the name of the anime i thought it was going to be about learning how to draw swords or something. Then i found out it was a anime, the cover looked good so i watched it. If you are into suspense,love story,action,and comedy (only a little) then this is a anime for you. Its just plan out AMAZING. It will make you cry,and jump for joy and even make you want to go into the anime and ...

    Why Watch Sword Art Online
    After watching 3 episodes of Sword Art Online (SAO) I finally decided to make a review for it.

    This anime draws you into the messy world of MMOs. It is impressive that each episode makes the anime realistic compared to MMOs being played right now. When a person plays MMO, the game won't stop every player who's been there way before you just to notify that YOU are gonna be amazing or be the ...

    Could of been better, should have been better
    First off this isn't the "BEST ANIME EVER", just to be clear.
    With that being said though, it is still a great anime.
    Sword Art Online, an adaptation of a short series manga worthy of being a recommendation on anyone's list. The anime revolves around Kirito, a teenage boy who is trapped in a virtual MMO game with 10'000 other players. The premise of the game is to ...

    Play to live. Game on.
    Okay, seriously. I need to stop putting off animes that people suggest to me. It seems every time someone suggests something, I end up crying at the end or just laughing until I cough out a lung. Except for Air Gear, I simply don't like that anime.

    With that, you know when people call something "not your typical anime"? I've watched those. They're as unique as the tree you point out in the ...
