  • Interesting story that reels the watcher in.
    What I really liked about this story and the plot of this anime, was that it related to gamers. I like to think of myself as a heavy gamer, because gaming is one of my favorite hobbies and things to do to pass the time. While RPG and MMORPG is not necessarily my choice of gaming, this story revolving around a game and an online gaming community caught my attention fairly quickly. So, in that ...

  • Simply put Badassery
    SPOILER FREE!!!

    SAO is like any gamer's dream. In a near distant future where virtual gaming is the norm, people play MMORPGS in a setting similar to .Hack. Though this anime takes what .Hack did and hits every note that it missed. The anime revolves around two main characters though is focused more on the male protagonist Kirito.

    Animation 10/10- The different colors, and contrast of them ...

    Imaginative & truly exciting
    The first anime to interest me enough to seek out and read the associated source light novels. Wonderful story & looking forward to more to come from the amazing author of SAO and Accel World Reki Kawahara.

  • The Epitome of MMO Anime
    Many MMO animes focus on the gaming culture and interactions between players in real life vs. in the game. Sword Art Online (SAO) takes this concept to the extreme, and I highly doubt any show will ever surpass if. The first episode is so amazing it breaks all the thumb rules people have for how many episodes you need to watch before you decide if you like it.

    SAO shows how wildly diverse, and ...

  • An Anime popular in a few short months after it started to air.
    In the year 2022, a VRMMORPG game known as Sword Art Online is released with something known as the Nerve Gear(that is able to be connected to your brain). One of them is 14 year old Kirigaya Kazuto(or Kirito) who was a beta tester about a month ago. But however soon he and the other players realize they cannot log out and the only way to escape is to beat the game. If you die in the game, you die ...

  • Best anime I've ever seen
    Out of all the animes I've ever seen. This is the best anime ever. If your looking for romance, action, heart to heart moments. I suggest this anime to anyone. Yeah your gonna cry here and there, but the ending is just beautiful. I highly recommend this.

    Could've been way more better
    The art style was amazing as well as the fighting sequences but the whole series was a bore for me, repetitive story line, annoying characters and overall my biggest problem was how overpowered Kirito is, this whole series/concept had a lot of potential and could've been better, but it wasn't.

    You can find the whole detailed list of reasons why I disliked this anime so much here: ...

  • A world worth finding
    This anime is one of my personal favorites. I reccomend this to anyone who likes fantasy, midevil stuff. Or anyone who loves RPGs. This anime takes place in a world inside of an RPG. The world looks amazing from what I've seen. Sure the players are trapped in the game. But this world they're in is worth exploring. I think I might prefer the world of SAO over the real world. If you were trapped in ...

    One of the Best Anime of 2012
    This anime is great. If you hadn't watched any of the episodes yet you should. I won't spoil the story so I will just tell you that in my opinion this anime is the best and of course that the two characters on the cover(from left to right asuna and kirito) are the main characters of this anime. That's all I can tell you for now. HOPE YOU WATCH THIS ANIME AND ENJOY IT!!!
