  • 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 ...

    An Anime that could have ben EPIC
    When I read the summary of this anime, it actually caught my attention. Surviving in a game that could mean death just sounded interesting. Hence, I decided to give this anime a try. Watching the first few episodes, I truly believed this anime had an amazing vision, and it was going to deliver on it. Sadly it was not to be. The story goes from one of an epic quest to survive towards one basically ...

  • One of the Best Anime's Ever
    I've seen many animes and this is one of my favorites. The story was amazing, creative, and just perfect. I was amazed at how they could make a story this amazing. Kirito is a perfect person for this. I finished this anime a long time ago and just recently watched it again. I love it
