    The Best I've Seen Yet
    This show has a lot of things that I have not seen, and the fact that you based it in a game, it especially gets gamers watching it, including me. Now since I'm not used to this, if there were English dubs that would make it much better for me, but for others, not as much. Overall, this show is so good I can not stop re-watching over and over!
    And always remember,
    "Save me! Don't look, but save ...

    One of my favourites
    This is one of my favourite animes I have ever watched. I would recommend it to any user on this site. It has great action, juggles the in game struggles along with real life struggles, (second half of first season and all of second season). If you can, go into this anime blind like I did, and DON'T GO ON THE WIKIA. I went on there and found out a certain person's secret identity which was ...

    Wonderful in many ways
    When I watched season 1, I was disappointed by the ALfheim Online storyline. With that being said, they have certainly made up for it with this very real and human story arc. Excited for Alicization and to see more Kirito and Asuna's irl and in-game lives.

    First 14 episodes were good.
    Beyond that though it got a little weird. Really got me in the mood to play MMOs but I quickly remembered that I hate MMOs. Anyway... there was some weird incest stuff (not sexual but you know), I don't watch much anime so I'm not sure if that's normal shenanigans but I found it awkward at best and painful at worst. I hate it when I can feel the show writer's family issues through the screen. ...

    This show be tuggin' at my heart
    This show made me cry so many times. I hear so many people trashing it but the story line is amazing and the cliffhangers were always perfectly timed. Who cares if its not a death game anymore, it's still SAO and by far my favorite Anime ever! God I hope something like this comes out IRL (minus the dying IRL part though)!

    You will not be dissapointed
    This anime has a special place in my heart. First of all, it was one of the first anime I've seen and second of all, it's amazing, lol.
    No, but really - if you're new to anime, this is a good starter.

    I seriously LOVE the storyline and I had to watch the first season in one go because I couldn't let go of it. Before GGO (Gun Gale Online), I couldn't stop thinking about SAO and this is one of ...

    Meh, it's alright. For beginners
    I give it two stars. It's not the worst and it's DEFINITELY not the best. It was my first anime I completed and it was what got me into anime, so I have to give SAO the credit for that. I'd say I enjoyed it some throughout, but I wouldn't rewatch. A lot of it doesn't make any sense at some parts (like how Kirito defied dying from the game creator himself and beat him in return), and Kirito (the ...

    Upon Rewatch, this Baby Holds Up
    No other anime has drawn my attention the way Sword Art Online was able to. I decided on a whim to rewatch some of my favorite episodes and moments after talking with a friend about the show. I was floored yet again.

    While the hero arc presented is considered a rather large trope, I challenge you to find any anime not featuring a bevy of tropes. Kirito's character is likeable and worthy of ...

    Hear me out here....
    I will start with this:
    Sword art online is not a good show.

    HARK WHAT? DIDNT YOU GIVE IT 4/5 STARS? THEN HOW IS IT NOT GOOD?

    damn hear me out here before going full ape mode jesus
    but really.

    SAO is not "The best anime ever made" or "The anime that changed everything"
    SAO is good at its points and thats why i gave it 4/5
    I will go through all my points to why this exactly ...

    Best Anime I've Watched!
    I just finished the first part of SAO and I've never seen anything better! It makes you cry, laugh, and it even made me mad at parts too! The quality is astonishing! I'm definitely going to watch the second part and the movies! I've never been so entertained by an anime before! Truly amazing!
