    SAO is NOT to be missed!
    When I first heard of SAO it was during the time it aired, back in late 2012. I didn't watch it at the time because, for whatever reason, I thought it would be lame and didn't even give it a chance. At the time, at quick glance, it looked childish.

    This is something I do a lot. I hate wasting time and lots of times will over look what in fact is a stellar show. SAO was one of those cases. ...

    Great start, decent arc
    This is currently my favorite anime. Excellent music, animation, and story line. it does lack a little on character depth though.
    i will say to not get your hopes up on the first arc, Alfhiem Online was good but not as good as SAO
    amazing anime, i recommend to everyone, a must watch.

    This is an Amazing, Addicting Anime.
    Best anime I've seen in a long time, let's hope they keep it up! When I first heard about the show, I thought it would be some Plot-less... Violent anime about a death-game... Oh, how wrong I was... The characters we're amazingly lifelike and the plot was believable, now I find myself as one of SAO's biggest fans! ^_^

    Sword to pierce imagination
    I loved this show. I am a huge fan of anime, and Video games, so packing them both together was an added bonus for me. lol. Loved the story line, especially the original programmers motives for doing what he did, and the characters. I don't tend to like to say to much in reviews because I don't like spoilers so i'll end it here. Awesome!

  • One of my All time Favorites
    I don't really like writing reviews but this one I just had to because it was so awesome. I can relate to the anime because I'm into MMO and the way the story played out was great. I love this anime. Wish they had a Second Season.

    Pretty darn good, I must say.
    The first half of the series is great (first 13 episodes), the second half seemed tacked on. The series is similar in feeling to Escaflowne, or even something like Gundam Wing. I say this in that it's a pretty light story, good action, no trying to trick the viewer, etc.

    Finally, I've had the theme song stuck in my head for weeks.

    Strong Start Weak Finish
    To be completely truthful i went in this anime wary due to the controversy surrounding this show. I was surprised to end up liking it with it's awesome battles and good writing. I mean i'd notice the characters being a little flat but it is a classic shouen type anime so not that big of a problem. I really started to like this anime, it wasn't masterpiece material like Gankutsuo or Code Geass but ...

  • One of the must Great Short Anime!
    This is one of the most extraordinary anime i have ever watch, Love how Kirito And Asuna get together, tho I havent seen an introduction of the Heroine that take a while to coming in the story In A Long time, that was a great touch.

  • The critic has been silenced.
    I spent the majority of this series with my mouth agape, my butt at the edge of my seat, and my eyes filled to the brim with tears. I'm usually very critical about action series that seemingly plug a romantic storyline in so it has unisex appeal, but every relationship and character interaction in SAO was as natural as reality itself. Not a single part of this series seemed repetitive, over done, ...

    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 ...
