    Epic drop off after good start.
    I enjoyed the misadventures of Kirito and the world of Sword Art Online for the first story arch. After that if devolves into everything that's wrong with current anime. The main character is ridiculously over powered and every single female character what's to bone him. Even his own sister. Hell even his own adoptive imaginary daughter. It's like writers of anime spent years on Fan Fic dot net ...

    great but pretty predictable
    the first part of this anime was great, had me hooked right away. it's different and if you love video games this is perfect for you! the storyline is awesome and super unique. i like the lone wolf types of characters like Kirito, so i wasn't so fond of the romance part. Asuna is a great character who was strong and they were a great team but i felt like she became weaker and more of a damsel in ...

    Go Watch SWE's Sword Art Online the Abridged Series. Don't waste your time here
    The characters, plot, humor, and even character development are far better in SWE's SAO Abridged compared to the original content in every imaginable way, creating a series with several millions of views that resembles what Sword Art Online should have been without losing the visuals, animation, music, and character design that make up the only good parts of the original series. What are you ...

    IT IS A MUST WATCH!!
    THIS IS THE[u] BEST ANIME I HAVE EVER WATCHED. IT'S ADDICTIVE WITH A GREAT STORYLINE AND CHARACTERS THAT YOU JUST FALL IN LOVE WITH. TRY IT OUT SERIOUSLY!!!!!!!!! IT MAKES YOU WISH THAT THE REALITY THAT THEY ARE LIVING IN IS YOURS! THE SHIPS HAVE SAILED.

    Decent but Over Hyped
    Sword Art Online has become somewhat of a sensation overnight. There are reasons for this. The first episode is an incredible setup that gets you hooked immediately. Unfortunately, I do not feel that the show is able to deliver on the promising tone that the first episode sets.

    After the primary antagonist presents the primary struggle of trapping players inside a virtual reality video game, he ...

    Flawed in so many ways, and I don't care
    I really don't have any good, rational reasons to give SAO 5 stars. There are more flaws than I can count, but I love it anyway.

    Call the characters inconsistent or cliche, but I want to see what they do next. I want to get to know them. When they come on screen, I cheer.

    The pacing is inconsistent most of the time, and the ALO arc is just bad, but I can't wait for the next story. ...

    Sword Art Online Is Best Pony
    I love this entire series, even the GGO arc. I know a lot of people have problems with this show because it didn't revolve entirely around Aincrad and ditched it after season one, but watching the characters develop across multiple games was really interesting for me.

    I would totally support a series all about the crew in the new Aincrad though. Even if it didn't have a major villain for them ...

    Should I have expected this disappointment?
    Here's the thing: I thought the premise was pretty stupid from the outset, I really did. Somehow I managed to watch the whole thing without ever really enjoying any part of it. I normally don't do that. Usually, I'll stop watching a show halfway through if I'm not enjoying it, but for some reason I kept watching this one. I think maybe I kept expecting it to get better at some point, but after it ...

    Something for everyone
    SWO covers a little of everything, from romance to fast-paced action. The animation is fluid and the scenery is truly beautiful. I enjoyed season 1 and 2 equally since it's nice to have a change in setting from time to time. If you're looking for something that's easy to pick up with memorable characters, look no further.

    Awesome to the highest degree!!
    Absolutely amazing. I really love the texture of emotion woven into the overall theme of the series. This anime preaches the power of humankind over machines and the power of love over all things. Idk if you could ask a better series to watch than this. I only wish that the series had no end..
