    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 ...

    Emotional and amazing story
    If you are into romance, action, and an awesome story, then look no further. This anime is absolutely amazing. Really nice design, great cast of characters that you can become attached to, and lots of awesome moments. You will not be disappointed.

    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 ...

    I loved it but thats not what review readers want to read
    I loved sword art online, it was really great.
    when a friend recommended it-I was like "its gonna be spy kids 3 all over again" But it turned out to be realy good
    However: people reading reviews don’t want to hear another person fawning over the show, so I will tell you a few things. Not ‘problems’ just things I noticed
    I actually really loved it.

    *spoiler alert*(I don't tell the ending or ...

    SAO is the best i've seen in a while.
    This anime surprised me. I didn't think it was going to be that good. I really enjoyed watching it. It included romance and action all at the same time. I suggest watching this, Sword Art Online is an amazing anime. When you start watching this anime you will become addicted until you finish all the episodes. Loved it. Although i wasn't very surprised by the ending because it was very obvious what ...

    An Outstanding Anime
    SAO appeals to multiple genres. It features action, romance, and humor. Though the target demographic seems to be RPG players, pretty much anyone can enjoy this series. The characters are awesome and the plot is pretty good. Overall, 5/5 stars.
