    First Impressions - Sword Art Online
    Greetings. I'm Okashido and welcome to First Impressions. This week we're going to look at yet another addition to the "People-trapped-in-a-digital-world" show. I went into Sword Art Online thinking that this was going to be a friendly buddy-buddy version of .Hack//. I mean, how could you not with that kind of cover?

    WRONG!

    The Perfect Combination.
    I'll start my review by saying this is one the greatest anime I have ever seen, and I don't say that very often ^^

    It can be hard to find and series that combines so neatly the genres of romance, action, and fantasy these days, but Sword Art Online manages to do the task almost perfectly, maybe one of the best points of this anime is how nicely the characters ( not only the ...

    Sweet, Sweet Nostalgia
    First things first-
    Read the Light Novel, it is amazing.
    Secondly, right off the bat, the plot of SAO had me hooked. I cannot even count the numerous times I dream't of being in a VRMMORPG (Virtual Reality Massive Multiplayer Role-Playing Game) it would certainly be the end of my life-
    But at the same time create a entirely different one.
    Although the situation these characters have to endure ...

    SAO... A beautiful anime set within an MMORPG
    Sword Art Online is an anime based off of a series of Light Novels by the same author who wrote the Light Novels for Accel World. Taking place in a world where the inhabitants are trapped within a game by the game's creator and where death within the game becomes death in reality, the citizens of the world must fight through the 100 floors of the world in order to log out.

    Thus far, the ...

    Couldn't avoid falling in love with it.
    This is by far the BEST anime I've ever seen. Period.

    One of the best story-lines I've ever seen, excellent animations, excellent characters, pretty good graphics and design. Overall, this anime is absolutely perfect.

    From what it looks, it is most likely that we will get another season possibly this year.... I hope.

    Takes veiw of Online MMORPG to a whole new level.
    I'm a gamer, honestly when i watched the first episode it pretty much describe what you will see in a typical online game. Guys pretending to be girls, girls be guys vice versa.
    As the story progressed, It became either survival of the fittest or team work survival.
    But Season 2, not really worth my time.

    Season 1: 10/10
    Season 2: 5/10

    ALMOST PERFECT- ty for reading all of it if u did otherwise u should read all of it
    I have to say SAO is the best anime i have seen in a long time and i mean it. It blew my standards away, now when i see another show on i roll my eyes because i know that there nowhere near what u have accomplished with SAO. But i do hope however that u can go more in-depth this go round like how the story is in what u wrote make the series longer than 25 episodes because u could easily make it a ...

    Very, very enjoyable anime.
    My favorite part about this anime would have to be the concept. I like video games, so I was drawn to the plot, where characters are trapped inside an MMO. The characters were fun to watch as well. It was enjoyable to see Kirito and Asuna bond closer as the anime progresses. However, I thought the anime progressed too quickly during the SAO portion. It would have been nice to see more of Kirito's ...

    Great Anime Poor Plot Twist
    SAO is a great anime for people who are not the critiszing type of people and are free goers, the anime has a good plot, OK romance and a better then normal characters. This anime's plot is great at the beginning with a deep plot and it keeps the audience's eyes glued to the anime until the 2nd arc comes around and the anime pulls a massive dick move which sent the anime into a downward spiral ...
