    A Good & Interesting Anime
    Have been wanting to watch this for a long time, but had a pretty big list of anime I wanted to watch first, but now that I've gotten around to it I'm glad it was not a waste of my time. I like all the characters for the most part and aside from some unnecessary hentai humor, the show was great. I don't think the show needed to fall back the hentai because the overall concept of the show is ...

  • Fantastic and compelling
    I really enjoyed this series and while the first online world was better than the 2nd in my opinion, it still manages to be a fantastic and compelling show to watch. I watched the final 10 episodes in a row... until about 6am.

  • Wonderful series, especially for MMO veterans
    I'm not a manga person, I don't read light novels or graphics novels. I just watch shows if they look interesting, and man this one was. Not only was the storyline gripping, but they nailed all of the archetypes of MMO players and game design to the point where I was reminiscing about past friends. What a show.

    Don't bother with the second season
    So this show is pretty good. The first half is great 4/5 stars. But it's bogged down by the second half of the series which merits 2/5 stars. And here's why:

    The first half of the series is about people who are trapped in a game that they have to clear to escape. The catch is, if they die in game they die in real life. This makes for some compelling scenes. For one, it actually matters if ...

  • Disappointments & Let downs
    I'm glad that I stuck it out with this anime. It bounced back and forth between great and disappointing for me. I loved .hack and really hoped this would measure up, but it just sort of... fells flat for me. It's not terrible. It's had it's moments of tension. But there was nothing really spectacular about it, past the first couple episodes, it just sort of... dragged on.

  • Irresistibly Great For All.
    While I have not watched much anime, only getting into it half a year ago I can say this series is GREAT. I love romance,sci-fi,action, ect. and Sword Art Online covers all of this and more. The music is great and has left me with the songs getting on my Ipod, and the art is considerably better than others and looks beautiful. As a PC gamer (well, I am but I just don't have time anymore) ...

  • My New Favorite Anime
    Ok, this has officially passed Eureka 7 as my favorite anime of all time. Five-star storyline, five-star action, five-star romance. This is what every anime should aspire to.

    My soul aches for a game like SAO and every time I stop watching it to go to work or something I get withdrawal symptoms. There is no doubt the first arc is superior but even so the second is still wonderful. I think ...
