    What more can you ask for?
    This is one of my favorite anime series (read the novels too..) and continues to be so after years of watching many more. Heck, I made this profile because I wanted to give it a 5 star rating. That should be enough to convince you. No? Go spend your next 20 minutes watching, and you're liable to agree with me.

    Sword Art Online II is depressing...
    I loved the first season of SAO, and when the second season was announced, I got extremely excited. I couldn't wait until it came out, but when I finally watched SAO II, it was extremely depressing.

    There is significantly less action in SAO II. It is almost 90% dialogue and 10% garbage, meaningless fights. This season is an utter let-down.

    Unless you are a die-hard Sword Art Online fan, ...

    Fall short on it feet
    Start off great with an interesting plot but quickly fall short on it feet. Everything felt rushed. Kirito and his harem group follow him everywhere he goes. Kirito is the alpha gamer that is god in every MMO game he play and get all the babe. Disappointing character development , sub par story, average soundtrack at best. The VRMMO sub-genre is still fresh but sadly SAO fail to execute this ...

    THIS ANIME MAKES ME CRINGE!!!
    Am I the only one who just couldn't stand how phony this anime is? It's like some obese otaku's harem fantasy taking animated form. Really?! All these hot girls having the hots for an RPG obsessed weakling like Kirito, whose only redeeming quality is that he isn't as much of a jerk as some guys his age might be? Also, am I the only one bothered by the fact that the women he gets involved with ...

    Amazing Anime that you wont regret
    I have watched since epi 1 and i haven't stopped. It is action packed and is filled with twists. First season was some what better but it is awesome in always. YOU WONT REGRET WATCHING THIS ANIME. I was kind of upset when they changed games half way through first season but they didnt change the anime it was still awesome and action packed as always

    Recommend this for..
    Recommending this for people who like watching action anime like me. Lots of conflict. Some of the conflicts kinda of relate to me like, being afraid of something but later overcomes the fear. I also will recommend to my friends who uses Crunchyroll, cause they been waiting for this. Sword Art Online 1 & 2 (ソードアート・オンライン 1 & 2) would be perfect for Blue Exorcist fans (in my opinion) and other ...

    Slow, fustrating, but
    The story itself is gripping and interesting, paced out in the first three or so episodes quite well but soon slows down due to prolonged conversations between characters that are not suited for a show that is stuck with a 20minute (even less with recap,intro and outtro) slot; the end result is episodes where the characters barely move location and no action takes place, only ...

    Best. Anime. Ever. :D
    It may have a "rushed" story line, but personally I believe this is the best Anime that I have ever watched. It has so much action, romance, and even plot twists, that I just don't know what to do with my life while I wait for the next episode to come out.Awesome!

    I was pleasantly surprised
    I watched this extremely long after the original release, and I was pleasantly surprised by how good it was. Especially in the SAO arc, it maintained its integrity extremely well. And whilst I'm not always a fan of love stories, especially if that's all it has to offer, SAO does it perfectly. Instead of having the love as fanservice, the love arc plays a major part in character development, and ...

    Great Series! I love it!
    Wow, I can't believe that up till I started watching this (I stayed up till 4:00 AM watching purely this) I thought this was an actual MMO game! It has one of the best storylines I've seen, but be careful who you watch some episodes around... Anyways, great series, I finished it in three days, can't wait for S2E11 to come out in about 15 hours!
