    Sword Art Online Review: Excellent Series!
    Excellent series! It has everything you could ask for in an anime. action drama tears and a few laughs here and there. altho I have to admit the GGO Phantom Bullet arc kind of dragged out, but it wasn't at all bad. Looking forward to Project Alicization/Underworld/Season 3. take your pick. I have a feeling Kirito and Asuna's adventures won't be over any time soon. Definitely worth watching if you ...

    Love Gun Gale Online
    Pretty cool anime!!!! Am I the only one who love Asada Shino (Sinon) more than Asuna? And Am I the only one who think that guns are cooler than swords, as well as Gun Gale Online is more interesting than Sword Art Online? I think the most excellent part in the anime is "Phantom Bullet"

    Aim fully calibrated
    SAO has really shaped up to be something interesting and unique despite the claims of some. And its managed to completely separate itself in concept from the other animes based on video game and internet net-dives and hacks.
    Shifting the story to an FPS in season-2 with GGO (Gun Gale Online) really put in another universe from all the riffraff. And with that I'm hoping to see more of the SAO ...

    Very Well Done, But Some Slow Pacing
    As someone who is newer to the world of anime, I don't know how much of what I say is credible. I loved the first season, and even with ALO's introduction and the conflict in the real-world going on as well, I felt like the first season was satisfactory. This season, however, I thought was absurdly slow, with three episodes containing scenes of Kirito hiding in a cave, debating strategies with a ...

    Pleasantly Surprised
    I saw this show a few times looking for animes and always passed it over because it sounded like a kids show. FOOLISH!

    I finally gave this a chance out of boredom and it was amazing. Very good story. Very well done. I was hooked the whole way through.

    An Unfinished Anime!
    Sword Art Online Season 1 and 2 both feel a bit unfinished and under developed.Such as season 1 that has an amazing number of plot holes.There is also season 2 that has no development for Death Gun's brother which gives it 3 stars.

    Generic Wish-Fufillment Garbage
    The only good part of SAO are the game CONCEPTS, everything else, from the MASSIVE stupidity of EVERY character other than Kirito, even his "friends" AKA the generic h@rem members that worship him (other than obviously Klein and the ONE other guy friend, who still worships him), to the generic pure evil villains that are still pretty pathetic and make you hate them so you root for Kirito ONLY ...

    Loved the story of this anime, one of my favorites if not my favorite.
    I'm just here to add to the sea of good reviews, got here late. Still loved it, I haven't watched a ton of anime but this one will stick with me for a long time and possibly be my favorite for a long while. First time a anime really stuck out to me and made me fall in love with anime.

    Sword Art Online Crappy Review
    *Although there is essentially 4 different storylines, I will assess SAO as a whole
    Sword Art Online is an anime that consists of ups and downs. While most portions are brilliant and offer very thoughtful/philosophical storytelling, there are segments that are lackluster in comparison and may even be perceived as filler (although I am exaggerating quite a bit). ...

    Wow. Wish we had more.
    This show is superb, the plot is excellent, and the characters are memorable. As with most people I will say that the original SAO arc is the best; however, that in no way means the rest is not good. I do wish that we could have had a longer first arc though. Asuna was definitely my favorite female character and the whole SAO world felt more engaging than the others. If you have finished SAO ...
