    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 ...

    Good potential, poor finish
    Starts off great with a good storyline. New technology has developed that allows people to play games fully immersed and the flagship game has just launched (sounds like a dream come true to me). Of course things go awry and everyone is trapped in the game until someone clears all the levels. People can actually die in the game and you see real life begin to mix in with the virtual world they're ...

    If you die in the game...
    Made in the same as .hack//sign, Sword Art Online is about what would happen if you were to get trapped inside your favorite video game. Doesn't sound too bad, right? Well, kinda. If your HP reaches zero in the game, your Nerve Gear (basically a virtual reality helmet) releases a deadly microwave, frying your brain to a crisp. So yeah, tread carefully. Not quite as charming as .hack//sign, but ...

    Out of This World! (Literally)
    I've been putting off watching this anime in the thought that it will probably be your average RPG anime. They get stuck in this world and to be able to escape, they need to defeat the big boss. Of course in the end they probably survive and defeat the boss as they all do. Happy ending. The end.

    On second thoughts, scratch that. I know it does sound really cliché and you've probably watched ...

    Had amazing potential, but totally blew
    This was one of my very favorite anime up until the second half. The beginning was awesome and so much fun, but the plot changed half way and it became disappointing and difficult to watch.

    Significant flaws:
    -The biggest letdown for me was how Asuna, who was so awesome, powerful, and cool, became totally helpless and pathetic in the second half.
    -Towards the end it got really cheesy ...

    A game with flaws and strengths.
    Anyone who is a gamer will readily admit to spending numerous hours playing a video game. But what if the game was extreme to the point of being physically impossible to stop playing until you won and an in-game death makes you die in real life?

    Enter Sword Art Online (SAO), an anime about a video game of the same name. What we have from this show is a survival story set in a high-fantasy world ...

    Perfect anime but alfheim went by too fast!
    When I watched the first episode of sword art online, i was shocked by how amazing this anime was, the storyline was just great. I just loved the episodes where they were in the world of sword art online. I went by those episodes at the speed of light since i liked them so much... But then came the world of alfheim online. I find that the creators didn't take the time to detail the world of ...

    Sword Art Online Review
    SPOILERS - THIS IS MY PERSONAL OPINION
    A few ep's in and i sincerely fell in love with this anime. It was exciting and attention grasping. I enjoyed the character of the protagonist, i prefer the quiet cool type compared to the boisterous loud type. But what really made this work for me was the ability to die in a game; this added the much serious tone and emphasised the deaths of people within ...
