    Soo much potential and came up short!!
    Its a shame. This one started off so good but man talk about turning to barely watchable I know a lot of people loved this but it just fell WAY to short to be called great. The animation was great and well done but the story was lacking. Its a shame really as the source material is better than this.

    Good for younger viewers and people with low expectations. 3/5

    Enjoyable, but yes, overrated.
    Overall:
    So first things first, I'm a fan of SAO and enjoyed what I saw of it (haven't read the light novel), but I do think that it's a bit overrated. All the praise SAO has been getting is a bit exaggerated in my opinion. Nonetheless, I still liked the show. I would actually give it a 3.5, but Crunchy doesn't allow that, so I guess I'll be generous.

    Note: Spoilers are ...

    Sword Art Online - A show with great potential that faded too fast.
    Sword Art Online seemed really cool to me in the beginning. I loved the art style, the animation was gorgeous, and the music really fit the show. For the first five or six episodes I was really into it, eagerly awaiting each new release at the end of the week. It was an intense show with an interesting premise that I enjoyed watching. I didn't really care much for the main two characters (Asuna ...

    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 ...

    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 ...

    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.

    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 ...

    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 ...

    I Love Sword Art Online!
    Sword Art Online is a very good Anime. The Characters are amazing and totally believable. I thought that the way the story moved was a bit fast in the First story arc, because i would of like to see more buildup of the relationship of Asuna and Kirito and more of the life after they were married. And the 2nd arc was Just as good as the first one was. All in all a very good anime and HIGHLY ...
