    Review of Season 1&2
    As an avid anime fan who has seen hundreds of anime, I can honestly say that this anime is one of the most memorable anime to have been released in the past few years. Everything about is is high quality. From the artwork to the voice acting to the animation, everything is well done. Many people have complained through their comments that the pacing of the first season (ep. 1-12) is too fast, or ...

    SAO is an awesome virtual reality story
    I've always been a sucker for anime that dealt with the fantastical issues arising from interacting with a virtual world. SAO blends a nice mix of great music, action, and deeply emotional human story of people stuck between worlds -- questioning what is and what is not real.

    I hope they continue onto season 3 and beyond =)

    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 ...

    Sword Art Online Review
    Though I have never read the manga, I will give a review as to my interpretation on the anime.

    I am thoroughly enjoying the story of our main heroes with a tragic love story, even though love triangles have bothered me very much in the past, at least two of them are in meaningful love. It is also a new take as far as I know of, to have two triangles with the main couple only trying to get to a ...

    Best anime for me atleast , never seen anything this good
    I must say this is one of the most interesting animes i have ever watched , the story is amazing and addicting. (cant wait for another episode this weekend) The characters is well thought out and you will not be dissapionted if you watch this anime.

    Shame that the Season 1 "Sword art online" is only 14 episodes , they could probably have made over 100 episodes with all the boss fights and such. ...

    First Impressions of Sword Art Online [An Assessment of Episodes 1-20] *Spoiler Free*
    Since this series hasn't officially ended I cannot properly assess an accurate score or review, however, I will give my first impressions and thoughts on this series. (Up to Episode 20)

    [Genre & Audience]
    Sword Art Online (SOA) starts off as an adventure/fantasy based anime. This changes later on though, as the story gears towards a more romantic story. I have to say that ...

    One of the best Virtual Gaming Anime's I have seen in a while, better than .hack imo.
    If you loved .hack you're going to love Sword Art Online. The concept of, "you die in the game you die in real life" has never been done well, and SAO has done it justice. The Raw emotion and intensity displayed by the characters is amazing, and the episodes always leave you wanting to watch more, after watching just one episode I was hooked and could not stop, I literally sat down and watched all ...

    Sword Art Online is a Very Good Anime
    It has a very nice plot, it is well thought out, and has very good quality. The characters are very real, and it has a good blend of many elements a good anime requires. Sword Art Online has everything.

    Just really loved it!!!
    The story was very good, great very lovable characters and I liked how they used MMORPG terms and all through out. It has good action, a great love story, some interesting twists, and well animated. The cover art caught my eye and the anime stole my heart, I even cried a few times. Worth the look.
