    Action packed and beautiful animation, but lacks real depth.
    There is probably no anime in recent years with more polarizing reviews than Sword Art Online. After watching it with my own eyes, in spite of harrowing opinions from both SAO lovers and haters, I've come up with my own conclusion for the show.

    It starts off with the game transforming itself into a life-or-death simulator (for reasons that still aren't clear), setting up a promising beginning ...

    Season 1 is the best
    I really liked season 1. Season 2 on the other hand is a disapointment; it doesnt have the same level of story telling and it lacks the tension that the first season brought to the table. Now its a slice of life anime rather than an action/fantasy anime... BOORING!!!

    Best anime is death combat
    SAO is the story of a Japanese teenager that gets stuck in a video game where he'll die IRL if he dies in the game, It's kind of like The Matrix except the purpose behind the computer system is more diabolical.

    While the show does have your normal teen drama stuff, it's really a lot of fun. A+ highly recommended 5 stars

    woah... this is amazing!
    I haven't been a huge anime fan until this show popped up... initially I felt attached because it was something I could relate to (video games!) but when the story unfolded I realized this was easily the most brilliant work of art I've ever seen. Something like this deserves a place in history, in my opinion... if only to show young artists an inspirational masterpiece.

    Everything About it is Amazing
    Like the title of this review, everything about this anime is amazing. It's one of the few anime that has a soundtrack that manages to give me chills, the art is astonishing and the story line, though slow at times, is not the best but still amazing. The Anime is currently two seasons, both seasons take place where characters entire a video game virtual reality which sends their conscious into ...

    over the top! would watch over and over and over- BECAUSE I HAVE

    some might say toward the end of the 1st season it starts to get boring
    but as soon as you hit season two that's when it really goes down. there's better/ even more character development, even supposed side characters seem to be pretty good. and that theme song i cant get out of my head it's great. i cant wait fr a season 3!

    Fast paced, engaging, several stories within the framework
    This is an abbreviated review. As the title suggests I was impressed with how quickly the events of the story unfolded without giving up detail. SAO I & II have several quests within the overarching story which made the series for me. I just couldn't stop watching! The character development was awesome - there wasn't too much focus on the main character Kirito-kun. A lot of space is actually given ...

    Completely Stellar Series
    This series is an eleven out of ten. First season is beautiful but the second is just as good at most parts but with some slow moving areas in the middle of the season, but it is still totally worth it to watch all the way through.I find myself addicted to the series even after watching many other anime after it. For sure going to re-watch the series at least 3 times.

    Amazing Characters, Great story, Epic Scenes
    This show i would recommend for new watchers, and old watchers this show was just amazing, i am a gamer and i understood allot of the terminology they said about MMOs even though there wasn't very much, it was an amazing show from episode 1 to episode 24 of season 2. Looking forward to Season 3 in 2016
