    Incredible 10 episodes then ehh
    After first arc episodes I was convinced this was the best anime I've watched, everything about it gave me feels. Beautiful animation, great character potential, very emotional and deeply moving developments. The game itself was very intriguing. Kirito was quiet but in a mysterious way made you think there was so much more brewing. There was a kick ass mysterious strong female lead who was ...

    Virtual reality nightmare
    This is a review for Season 1 - 2 and the Movie Extra Edition.

    The concept of the story is mind blowing and thoroughly detailed. From the concept of the created world, the functions of the console and how it kills along with backup. It considered the players long term physical health outside the game and then their psychological health.

    I enjoyed a lot of the characters and the plot lines ...

    There's a lot to like and a lot to dislike
    Sword Art Online, despite it's many faults, is an interesting and entertaining anime that builds a colorful and rich world which draws you in when you watch it.

    This anime receives a lot of hate for it's mistakes, but I think this is due to high expectations of such a popular anime. Yes, the characters are cliche, the plot has holes, pacing is off, and incest isn't something everybody loves, ...

    How is this still around?
    Seriously, the writer knows nothing about video games as these would be objectively horrible games, he only used these so he could explain as to why he has magic. This is just really shallow power fantasy trash, there is no reason to like any of these characters.

    Great, bad, mediocre, good
    There are four arcs within SAO. The first arc is the best arc of any anime. I strongly stand by this statement. The plot twists are phenomenal, character development is excellent, and the action scenes are great. The second arc is atrocious. The character development is weird and borderline creepy. It does a terrible job of developing the other guilds within the fairy world. Furthermore, the ...

    Really good anime but never got me to my gut feeling
    coming late on this but I watched all two seasons over one weekend. Let's be honest, it was a massive binge.

    1) story - I think the anime is divided in several part. First 14 episodes are defo the best and it's the main stories. The second part of the seasons felt like the second season of the Walking dead. It kind of lost the reason of what the anime is about.
    The second season start pretty ...

    Great for the most part!
    So, out of boredom, I rewatched Sword Art Online again, though I skipped some stuff and most of the murder in town episodes in season 1. My self a year ago loved the show after rewatching it for the second and a half time. The animation was great. The music was great. The characters, for the most part, were great. There was a strong male MC. His GF had her moments too. They kept the romance to a ...

    Only Watch it if Your Really Interested
    The anime is alright, the first half season 1 has some great character development and funny moments the only problem I have is with the second half of season one where one of the main awesome female protagonists is put in the damsel in distress role and there are some incest points, overall the second season is much better and at the end makes up for putting the female protagonist in the damsel ...

    Art Needs a Better Storyline
    Pacing: 2/10
    Animation: 10/10
    Music: 9/10
    Story: 5/10
    Characters: 5/10

    The first arc of Sword Art Online I and the first arc of Sword Art Online II are worth watching. The character development was the best in the first arc of Sword Art Online I. After that, the interesting characters sort of fade away. The writers of this anime need major help with pacing. The time jumps are just ...

    How Did This Anime Get So Popular?
    This anime is the only anime I will ever write a review for. I heard bad things about this anime, I watched 9 whole episodes before coming to the conclusion that this is the worst anime I have ever seen. I gave it a chance but this anime is so mix-mashed on what genre it is suppose to be and written/produced so poorly. The idea of being sucked into a parallel world has been getting popular because ...
