    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 ...

    The first season is great, the second one ruins it all
    I wish I could forget the second season, its extremely boring and pointless, should have ended when the original villain is beaten. The first part deserves 4 stars, the last part zero.

    The story was interesting when everyone was trapped in the online world, it made for an interesting story, and the fact that their bodies were getting weaker on the "real" world was a nice idea and increased the ...

  • 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!!!

    A must see for any MMORPG Gamer! - Amazing story, close to the reality of any gamer!
    I can say that I'm back in the real world, as a MMORPG Gamer I spend 10 years of my entire life playing FFXI, WoW and Terra Online, in those 10 years of gaming I experimented everything that was shown in SAO, Guild/Linkshell dramas, personal challenges, roles, achievements, rare items, epic items, PVP, ganking = pk, and the most important of all... I found my soul-mate, she was from a different ...
