    Absolute favorite anime
    Hands down the best anime around in its genre. Future science fiction with virtual reality games and how the human psyche would be impacted. This is what most of the show centers around for Season one as tens of thousands of players are stuck in a virtual world with no way out except to die or beat the game. Each arc has a different viewpoint on the types of VR environments and how people ...

    Great Until Ep. 15...
    This anime is fantastic..... Until Episode 15-16. The characters were overall pretty interesting (minus probably Kirito as he's just a BIT too OP, and bland for that matter), music is good, it looks nice, and the premise was absolutely fantastic, but the execution was ALL off. Ok, maybe that was an exaggeration, as this show does it all correctly until 15... Well what happens at 15? Basically the ...

    Came for the plot, did not disappoint
    Sword Art Online has masterfully constructed a vibrant setting that just captivates every viewer and pulls them into its premise. The plot is a twist on the genre of anime based on the main character being trapped MMORPGs. Our protagonist Kirito is not only charming but also dynamic in how he exhibits emotion throughout the show. His thoughts are logical and mimic how your average teenager would ...

    Squandered Potential
    I watched the first arc, made up of 14 episodes, to see what all the hype was about, and I still don't see it. Keep in mind that my rating is based only on the point I reached and is not necessarily representative of how I'd feel about the rest of the series.

    The first episode does a decent job, even if it is a bit exposition heavy, of introducing us to the world of SAO, and it creates a good ...

    Strong start Fizzled in the End
    This show as a concept is great in the same vein as the Dot.Hack video games and it does a great job in the beginning to interest and captivate you. But, personally if they would have kept it limited to just the first 14 episodes I would give it five stars but after the first arc things for me got really weird. Their strong female character became a lady in distress and the show became very harem ...

    Good Hook, Executed HORRIBLY
    Sword Art Online is an anime with great potential, but the potential is ultimately wasted due to terrible writing, character development, and animation.

    THEME
    The entire premise of the show is based upon when characters die in the game, they die in real life. This is a good theme, adding a sense of suspense as a character can die at any time. HOWEVER, the entire theme is wasted ...

    one of my favorite shows!
    I can not wait for season 3! i think season should rap every thing up (sadly). hopefully season 3 will be out soon. the ending of sword art online season 2 is sad and crazy at the same time and i cant wait to be able to see the next season of this show hopefully it will be super awesome!

    Needs more mayonnaise ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
    This anime is relatively bland, but at least the fan service really pays dividends when you have a shit story. 10/10 would love more close up ass shots, #Sinon is best girl.

    Time to be honest jack.
    This show should not have that many five star ratings. Which is why I am giving a 1-star. However I will give it a 5/5 in pandering to the lowest denominators, horrid light novel plot, frustrating main heroine, and time waster. SAO is just one of the many Light Novel cheap trashy adaptations, unfortunately this one gained a fandom. Watcha gonna do? When the SAO and its fanbase destroy you! ~ ...
